Christ is the Center of ALL Bible Prophecy – NOT The Nation of Israel
In the Middle East -- But Christ is Along with
The True Spiritual Israel of God!!!
May 17, 2021
In my last Commentaries I said that I would be writing a few more Commentaries to give enough evidence from Christ’s Word that demands a verdict that we are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION NOW. But Christ has impressed upon my heart more than ever before in finishing that last Commentary that there is just NO CHANGING this Great Tribulation that we are in. And I realize that I will be writing about the Great Tribulation that Christ Himself prophesied we “Elect” along with the rest of the world would be going through until He parts the very Heavens and steps back into our dimension to DELIVER AND RAPTURE US on the LAST DAY of this Human Race!!!
FORTUNATELY for us living through this Great Tribulation -- Christ has given us Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions of these End-Times to guide us and to encourage us to make it to the END of the Great Tribulation. For Christ REVEALED to Daniel that THE END or the LAST DAY would be the 1,335th day and that we would be “blessed” if we made it to this LAST DAY for we would see His GLORIOUS RETURN to deliver us “Elect” who are of HIS SEED and His Chosen People!!!
And the only way to get to that 1,335th Day of this Great Tribulation with our Spiritual well-being still intact and our minds NOT DECEIVED by Satan -- is if we stay grounded in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!! For the 1st thing that Christ prophesied in His Apocalyptic Discourse – was that “MANY False Prophets in League with SATAN” would be doing their best to DECEIVE us who are in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST before His 2nd Coming. And while we can’t change Christ’s DIVINE PLAN to LOOSE Satan to fight this Final Spiritual Battle -- we can stand up and FIGHT for Christ and His Word which will help Him DEFEAT SATAN. But make no mistake – we are in for one heck of a fight!!! For Christ prophesied through Daniel that “the little horn” who is SATAN will be fighting FIERCLY against us in the True Spiritual Israel of God which is the only Holy Nation that Christ has EVER HAD until the very LAST DAY’S RAPTURE when we read:
“He (SATAN through those in League with him!!!) will speak against the Most High and oppress His Holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. (and the LAWS at least in the U.S. are being changed and ignored now in our Constitution as NEVER BEFORE – which is how the Presidential Election was stolen!!!) (and because of the Harlot Church’s unfaithfulness) The Holy people will be delivered into his (SATAN’S) hands for a time, times and half a time.” (Daniel 7:25)
To be sure -- NONE of us know the LITERAL length of the CRYPTIC length of time that the “time, times and a half a time” represents – but what we do know is that it is the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy that we are in NOW that MUST BE FULFILLED to complete Christ’s DIVINE PLAN of DEFEATING SATAN and the False Prophets in League with Satan. In other words – according to Christ’s True Eschatology this Final Spiritual Battle has to take place. And like it or NOT -- everyone living on Earth is IN IT!!! And it won’t END until Christ steps back into our dimension again to END IT which is the CRYPTIC 1,335th Day recorded in Daniel’s last vision in Daniel Chapter 12!!!
But THANKFULLY – because we have the visions of Daniel and Ezekiel and John to guide us – we “Elect” know that Christ WINS and so do we in His Christian Army who are fighting this Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD vs. EVIL and TRUTH vs. LIES right along with Him. But until the LAST DAY – we must continue to keep our eyes on Christ – for He is the CENTER OF ALL BIBLE PROPHECY and He knows the END from the Beginning. And rest assured that His Word is the ABSOLUTE TRUTH and He would NEVER lead us “Elect” astray. Which is WHY He WARNS us that there will be GREAT TRIBULATION!!! And now that it is pretty obvious that He has taken His restraint off of SATAN and LOOSED him to fight this Final Spiritual Battle – we know that SATAN AND HIS SEED WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT. In other words – this Final Spiritual Battle could get a whole lot worse and even more fierce before Christ Returns to END IT!!!
That’s WHY it’s so important to realize that Christ especially chose each and everyone of us for this Final Spiritual Battle if we are part of His ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRISTIAN WARRIORS living now before His 2nd Coming!!! And rest assured that Christ knows each one of us by Name -- for we have been hand-picked for this Battle to serve in His Christian Army of these End-Times to DEFEAT SATAN once and FOREVER!!! And believe me -- standing up for Christ’s Honor and fighting for His Holy Nation of the SPIRITUAL ISRAEL OF GOD is a Hill worth dying on to be sure!!!
And while we are standing on HOSTILE EVIL ENEMY TERRITORY with Satan ruling this World and the Battle GROWING MORE FIERCE with each passing day now – we need to realize that Christ has already won the Battle for us when He saved our souls. And He is Coming again PESONALLY to DELIVER US and to give us new resurrected bodies like His to match our resurrected souls so that we can step into Eternity with Him and enter the New Heavens and the New Earth that He has waiting for us NOW.
So every time we feel defeated and feel like giving up – we need to keep our eyes on Christ – for He is the Rider of both the White Stallions of these End-Times that John saw riding out to conquer SATAN for us “Elect” who are of the SEED OF CHRIST and are “more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” And while there’s no denying that if we follow Christ we will have to pick up our cross and follow Him in fighting against Satan and those in Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” in this Final Spiritual Battle raging around the World today – Christ tells us that as both riders of the White Stallion of this Apocalypse that He is OUR STRENGTH – OUR DEFENSE – OUR REFUGE – OUR SHIELD – and the Mighty Captain of our Christian Army.
And so we MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH – knowing that there will be a DAY OF RECKONING for Satan and his SEED -- and the guilty will pay!!! And that Day of Reckoning is in the process of taking place now as Christ has us stand up and EXPOSE Satan and the EVIL DEEDS of those in League with him!!!
“Armageddon” And “The Gog and Magog” Battle are the CRYPTIC NAMES
Given for Today’s Final Spiritual Battle That Must Occur Before The Rapture on the Last Day
CLEARLY – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that “Armageddon” and “The Gog and Magog” Battle are one and the same Final SPIRITUAL Battle which is the CONQUEST of Christ over SATAN and all Evil!!! In other words – it is NOT one or even 2 Military Battles between the Nations of the World fighting over the Holy Land of the Middle East or a NUCLEAR WAR as Man’s False Eschatology teaches relentlessly – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! “Armageddon” is the SPIRITUAL PLACE of Christ’s VICTORY over Satan and EVIL!!! And we are given a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of this TRUTH by Christ riding both of the White Stallions of the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse in the Book of Revelation. And CLEARLY in Revelation Chapter 17 we are assured of the destruction of ALL FALSE RELIGIONS SYMBOLIZED by Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” -- the Mother of Harlots that John saw “riding THE BEAST” SYSTEM of Satan’s Evil and oppressive Governments that he now rules over in the United Nations!!!
And while these False Religions which are inspired and promoted by SATAN have been supported and even encouraged by many Kings of previous Nations and Empires – we must never lose track of THE TRUTH -- that John saw Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” where the Harlot Church exists today FALL in his 6th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 18 – NEVER TO RISE AGAIN!!! But before it’s Final Day of JUDGMENT – John also was shown in his vision that the whole world of unsaved Mankind would be worshipping SATAN through his “BEAST SYSTEM” of corrupt and oppressive Governments.
And isn’t that just what we see happening TODAY with Satan DECEIVING THE NATIONS to worship him by placing MAN and his Worldly Governments on the Throne of their hearts and NOT CHRIST who is THE TRUE GOD of this World and Universe???!!! I mean – think about it – Satan’s Spiritual Kingdom represents the UNSAVED WORLD that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 which would be in opposition to Christ right up until THE LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity because they were never saved by Christ. And because they were NEVER saved -- they represent THE SEED OF SATAN who have been AT WAR with Christ and His Word and those of us True Prophets of Christ bringing His Word since the Garden of Eden!!! And the EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TRUTH that John saw Babylon fall SUDDENLY and that her destruction would come from within should NEVER be glossed over. For TODAY we see the LAWLESSNESS that occurs when even Satan’s False Prophets are beginning to HATE ALL Religion and especially the GOSPEL TRUTH of the True Christianity that Christ taught when we read:
“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.” (Revelation 17:16-17)
And CLEARLY -- what is NOT being taught today is that Christ HIMSELF is bringing the False Religious System of Babylon down in what Daniel saw was the CLEANSING OF THE TEMPLE 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)
And now that Christ is CLEANSING THE TEMPLE of Satan’s False Prophets by EXPOSING them and their EVIL DEEDS through those of us who are His True Prophets – Babylon is being DESTROYED and the whole world has been thrown into chaos and CONFUSION. For there is NOT ONLY Biochemical WARFARE going on as evidenced by the Covid-19 virus that was most likely orchestrated to throw the World into panic and chaos – but there is also the most recent attack of CYBER WARFARE on the U.S. gasoline pipelines – also NO DOUBT orchestrated by “The Elites” to DECEIVE the world that GOVERNMENT would be best if it was RESET!!!
And those are not even the WORST pandemics – for the greatest PANDEMIC taking place TODAY is the STRONG DELUSION that the World will be better if the Elites’ Plan of “The Great Reset” of changing this World with them ruling it through the 2030 Agenda is instituted. I DON’T THINK SO!!! For today we see that it’s NOT just the “Elites” trying to gain COMPLETE CONTROL of everyone on Earth -- but the Elites ruling with the UNSOUND REPROBATE ANTICHRIST SPIRIT of SATAN!!! And as JUDGMENT John saw Christ bringing SATAN’S Spiritual Kingdom of Babylon down to ruins. And with Babylon now falling – the WHOLE WORLD is falling into TOTAL CONFUSION and PANDEMIC DELUSION that we are even in what Christ prophesied would be a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for everyone now living on Earth!!!
How The Ecumenical Movement of Today Figures into “The Great Reset” of the Elites
Who want to Rule the WHOLE World!!!
Rest assured that the Movement of Ecumenicalism which has been going on for some time now encourages cooperation between DIFFERENT faiths and denominations. And it is now being used mightily by the Elites to form a ONE WORLD RELIGION. And their goal is that the One World Religion will be under the control of the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. And make no mistake – this is all part of the 2030 Agenda to promote WORLDWIDE UNITY and cooperation between Religions and Satan’s BEAST SYSTEM of oppressive and corrupt Governments now in the United Nations -- which is CLEARLY NOT founded on the True Gospel of Christ!!! For the Bible is by NO MEANS an Ecumenical Book – HARDLY!!!
For clearly – Christianity makes NO compromise with any of the World’s FALSE RELIGIONS but claims that Christ is “the Messiah the Prince” who came prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy to save HIS SEED from the FALSE RELIGIONS OF SATAN!!! THINK ABOUT IT – The Evangelization of the WHOLE World was NOT Christ’s DIVINE PLAN – EXCEPT as it is defined by the measured CHOOSING of a 1/3 Remnant from every Nation of the World that Christ chose to save out of this sin-cursed World before the Fall in the Garden of Eden. And THINK ABOUT IT -- the Apostles of Christ would most definitely NOT have all been persecuted and KILLED had they presented Christ as just ONE MORE god to be added to the Roman Pantheon – or merely one of MANY possible ways to Salvation as the Ecumenical Movement of Today teaches. Christ’s Apostles and MANY of the Early Christians were ALL persecuted and many gave their lives because of their firm belief of Christ’s claim when He said:
“I am the way and THE TRUTH and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
HONESTLY – it would be hard to see that the Great Tribulation that the Disciples and the early Christians went through in defending Christ’s True Gospel is NOT a FORESHADOW of this time of Great Tribulation!!! I mean – think about it -- so many of them were crucified for NOT bowing a knee to Caesar and declaring that HE WAS GOD!!! And hasn’t it gotten almost that bad TODAY???!!! When if we don’t bow a knee to Satan’s oppressive and corrupt Governments of the United Nations including our OWN here in the U.S. that is ruled over by Globalist Elites -- that we will be punished by being taken off of Social Media or a host of other restrictions being imposed on our LIBERTIES and replaced by SATANIC BONDAGE!!! And make no mistake – SATAN is behind the SATANIC BONDAGE!!! For it is SATAN who ULTIMATELY is the one that Paul prophesied would be “THE ANTICHRIST” who opposes and exalts himself above ALL that is called God -- or that is worshipped so that HE AS GOD sits in the Temple of God declaring himself to be God”!!! (paraphrased from 2nd Thessalonians 2:4)
The widely misinterpreted “little horn” of Daniel Chapter 8 represents the power of Satan TODAY as he has now risen to rule ALL of the Nations in the United Nations from the Harlot Church. In other words – SATAN has been LOOSED to rule in power for “a little season” which is this time of GREAT TRIBULATION. And it just can’t be reiterated enough that the word “horns” in Scripture equate to or signify “power” – and we can see the correlation clearly. That “the little horn” of Daniel Chapter 8 means power for “the little season” that Satan is LOOSED. And that is confirmed by what Christ REVEALED to John in his 7thvision recorded in Revelation 20:3 – when John saw that Satan is LOOSED to go out and DECEIVE THE NATIONS which is taking place TODAY!!!
And those verses correspond to Revelation Chapter 17 which prophesies that “the 10 horns” which refer to ALL THE NATIONS of this World will give their power to “THE BEAST” for this time of GREAT TRIBULATION. For rest assured that the number “10” represents the COMPLETE POWER that Satan has now received as ALL the Kings and Political and Religious Leaders who are of HIS SEED are given POWER by Christ Himself to rule the World for “one hour” with THE BEAST who is SATAN that is LOOSED from the Bottomless Pit as we read in Revelation 17:14-17. And one TRUTH that we can count on if we are Blessed to be part of THE SEED OF CHRIST -- is that Christ makes it abundantly clear in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in His True Eschatology that even though we “Elect” who are in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST must endure this time of GREAT TRIBULATION -- that He has promised to deliver us from the hour time of temptation.
And NOT by taking us out of this World – but by keeping us when we are tried in this time of trial that we do not fall for Satan’s “crafty distortions” of THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel. For the “10 horns” 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!!!
And sadly -- this fundamental principle of Christianity that Christ WILL DELIVER His “Elect” out of the Great Tribulation seems to have gotten lost somewhere in these difficult times when so much of Christendom has now “fallen away” from the faith and the True Gospel of Christ. When HONESTLY – Christ’s True Eschatology explicitly teaches that the Final Spiritual Battle is fought between the False Prophets in the Kingdom of Satan and His True Prophets in His Kingdom of Heaven. And if Christ takes out His Christian Army -- then He would forfeit the Battle and allow SATAN TO WIN – which is just NOT GOING TO HAPPEN because it was NEVER PROPHESIED to happen!!! Christ has ALWAYS been prophesied to WIN the SPIRITUAL BATTLE over GOOD vs. EVIL which is WHY John saw CHRIST – NOT SATAN!!! -- riding both of the White Stallions of the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse recorded in the Book of Revelation!!!
And that means that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are here going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION for a good reason – which is to spread the TRUE GOSPEL of the Kingdom of Heaven until Christ’s sounds the Last 7th Trumpet and Returns to RAPTURE AND DELIVER US!!! In other words -- the Great Commission will NOT be complete until the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity. For John saw that after the 2 Witnesses which represent the True Spiritual Israel of God have had our witness thoroughly “killed and silenced” -- that THEN we will be REVIVED by the Holy Spirit to stand up on our feet and FIGHT until THE END of this Great Tribulation as seen in John’s 3rd vision recorded in Revelation 11:11!!!
And our prayer that Christ gave us to pray right up until the LAST DAY of this time now of Great Tribulation is this: “And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from THE EVIL ONE (who is SATAN and his deceptions!!!) (Matthew 6:13) Christ did NOT tell us to pray to be taken out of the World in the Rapture BEFORE the Final DEFEAT OF SATAN in this Final Spiritual Battle – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! He told us to pray that we would be kept from “the Evil One” who will do his best to DECEIVE us in this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION when Satan is HELL BENT as John saw in his 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20 to DECEIVE THE NATIONS!!! In other words -- Christ’s prayer is that we NOT to be taken out of the World for we are His Christian Army – but that we trust in His DELIVERANCE from Evil and Satan’s DECEPTIONS
when we read His Prayer for us:
“I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from THE EVIL ONE.” (who is SATAN!!!) They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” (John 17:15-17) And CLEARLY – Christ wants us to BELIEVE HIS WORD – NOT Man’s False Eschatology today which DENIES – CONTRADICTS – DISTORTS – and more often than NOT CHALLENGES His True Eschatology!!! That is WHY He prophesied: “If you hold to My teaching, you are really My disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32)
Christ NEVER Prophesied That He Would Rapture Us “Elect
”Before the Great Tribulation -- While Man’s False Eschatology Teaches That
Revelation 3:10 Reveals That He Will -- Which is A LIE!!!
God didn't promise us peace in the world – ON THE CONTRARY!!! -- He promised us Peace with Him and WAR and enmity with the world. For He explicitly prophesied that in this World we would have Tribulation and He didn’t add a footnote “unless the Tribulation is GREAT” – HARDLY!!! HONESTLY -- the whole idea of Man being RAPTURED BEFORE what Christ prophesied would be a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for everyone living on Earth when Satan would rule the WHOLE WORLD -- is the product of wishful thinking – NOT to mention just unsound False Eschatology and Liberal Secular Humanism. In other words – it is MAN AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD – for He explicitly prophesied that we “Elect” would be IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION!!! And no doubt that is WHY He said of His “Elect”:
“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in Heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matthew 5:11-12)
And make no mistake – the ENMITY of those of the SEED OF SATAN who are WARRING AGAINST those of us who are of the SEED OF CHRIST is growing EXPONENTIALLY GREATER now as almost everyone who belongs to Christ is being reviled and persecuted just for speaking THE TRUTH from Christ’s Word about these End-Times. And just as Paul prophesied from Christ in 2nd Thessalonians 1:3-12 – Christ isn’t going to take us out of the world until THE DAY OF THE LORD which is the LAST DAY. For as John 16:33 says -- our Peace is IN CHRIST and that is all we need. Clearly Christ prophesied that in the world we will have tribulation – and before the END of this World there will be EVEN GREATER TRIBULATION -- but He has overcome the world for us. That is precisely why “His Grace is sufficient.”
Rest assured that Christ knew that the truth of His True Gospel would NOT be popular in the world during this time of GREAT TRIBULATION and that’s WHY Man’s False Eschatology has done so well – because it’s what Man wants to hear – that THE RAPTURE happens BEFORE this time of Great Tribulation!!! And so we see Christ’s True Gospel being tread under foot for this “short little season” of now GREAT TRIBULATION when those of us who are LAWFUL CHRISTIANS who are obedient to Christ and His Word are being reviled and persecuted. But as I’ve ALREADY mentioned this will NOT last much longer – for John sees that after the witness of the 2 Witnesses who represent the TRUE ETERNAL UNIVERSAL CHURCH OF CHRIST on Earth today has been
“silenced and Killed” that:
“After three days and a half (which is the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy that we are in TODAY with SATAN reigning in the Harlot Church as “THE ANTICHRIST” now!!!) the Spirit of Life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.” (Revelation 11:11)
What Christ is trying to convey through John’s 3rdvision – is that this time of GREAT TRIBULATION is also a time of awakening and distress for true Christians because we can now see and realize “The Abomination of Desolation” of SATAN now ruling the WHOLE WORLD as he has taken his seat as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Apostate External Global Church. And that is WHY we “Elect” are told to come out of this HARLOT CHURCH that John saw “riding THE BEAST” of Satan’s Beast System of corrupt and oppressive Governments of the United Nations. And certainly that includes NOT being part of the Elite’s 2030 Agenda!!!
John saw in this 3rd vision that the condition of God’s congregation at His 2nd Coming will be the same as it was at Christ’s 1st Coming – which was and IS NOW TODAY “a den of thieves and robbers -- and of buyers and sellers in the Holy Temple -- all MARKED OF THE BEAST”!!! HONESTLY -- there are only two places where the phrase THE SON OF PERDITION is found in Scripture – and the 1stplace is when Jesus speaks of Judas as “The Man of Sin” in the external congregation who betrayed Him recorded in John 17:12. And the 2nd place is when Paul prophesies “The Man of Sin” taking a seat in the Holy Temple recorded in 2nd Thessalonians 2:3 to betray Christ. And this “Man of Sin” signifies the unsaved 2/3 Remnant of this World’s population – some of whom are part of The External Global Harlot Church which is no doubt the Apostate Congregation who has NOW bought into Satan’s DECEPTION of Ecumenicalism being a GOOD THING. And the Ecumenicalism being promoted today represent those who have forsaken God’s LAWS to do their own will in God’s Name – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And sadly those who have bought into Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” theory of THE RAPTURE happening BEFORE the Great Tribulation are being DECEIVED ROYALLY!!! For they will always give you Revelation 3:10 as their proof that the Church is Raptured BEFORE the Great Tribulation when the actual word “Tribulation” isn’t even in this verse – REALLY!!! THINK ABOUT IT – isn’t it curious that whenever Dispensationalists explain how The Church will NOT go through the Great Tribulation – that they can’t even give ONE verse that actually has the word “tribulation” in it???!!! HONESTLY – how can one talk about being saved us from the Great Tribulation without ever using the word “tribulation”???!!!
For WHERE is the word “tribulation” in Revelation 3:10 which prophesies: “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the Earth.” (THINK ABOUT IT – Christ said “the hour of TRIAL” – NOT THE GREAT TRIBULATION!!! And He said this time of “trial and testing” would come upon EVERYONE LIVING in the WHOLE WORLD – with NO mention of a RAPTURE of the Church BEFORE the time of trial and testing!!!)
The Promise is that in trial – testing -- or temptation which are all the same Greek word – we who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST and have His “seal” of “THE MARK OF SALVATION” will be delivered out of the temptation – no matter HOW GREAT it becomes!!! And make no mistake – IT IS NOW GETTING GREATER!!! Which is WHY Christ prophesied that He would cut these days short for those of HIS SEED who are His “Elect” as we read in Matthew 24: 24-25!!! CLEARLY – the 1st Coming of Christ FORESHADOWS the 2nd Coming of Christ when the Pharisees and the Sadducees thought that they were doing a service to the God of Israel by hunting down and putting Christ’s True Prophets in Prison or killing them when He prophesied the very same thing for TODAY when we read: “In fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God.” (AND THAT TIME IS HERE in this Great Tribulation!!!) (John 16:2)
CLEARLY – Christ promised to bring us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST safely out of “the hour or time of temptation” which is the trial of our faith in this prophesied time NOW OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION. And this is in contrast to the unsaved world – who when tried by the seducing of EVIL MEN like the “Elites” with their “Great Reset Plan” which is pure Socialism and Communism disguised as Democracy but is nothing less than MORE SATANIC BONDAGE – they fall headlong into it thinking it is a GOOD THING!!! And NOW that this
Time of Great Tribulation has come upon the WHOLE WORLD – Christ is NOT promising to Rapture us “Elect” who are of HIS SEED out of the World – but to KEEP us from the temptations of SATAN who is now RULING THE WHOLE WORLD!!!
Christ says that there is NO TEMPTATION that we will have to endure that He will have to take us out of the World to avoid when He prophesied: “NO temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” (and the way of escape is not to escape the world in a MYTHICAL RAPTURE that He NEVER prophesied – but by being IN CHRIST and trusting that He will deliver us out of the temptations!!!) (1st Cor. 10:13)
Why Man’s False Eschatology About Daniel’s 70th Week Being Future is WRONG!!!
It is SAD INDEED that the Prophecy of the 70 Weeks of Daniel is still being HOTLY debated today as it was at the 1st Coming of Christ. But rest assured this infamous prophecy given to Daniel CENTERS ON JESUS CHRIST – NOT the Nation of Israel in the Middle East and the bullet riddled piece of Land that it sits on. In other words – Daniel 70th Week Prophecy is about Christ’s 1st and 2nd Coming. And CLEARLY – Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME in the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And He is also “the Messiah the Prince” who is prophesied to come AGAIN to deliver His “Elect’ on the LAST DAY of Human History.
In other words -- Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is about the New Covenant of GRACE that Christ made with “the many” of us that He drew and called and saved out of this sin-cursed World. And if he has today saved us -- John was shown that Christ has also ALREADY “sealed” each one of us with “THE MARK OF SALVATION” which is The Blood of the Lamb. And that our saved souls have ALREADY been translated into Christ’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” here on Earth where all of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST have existed on Earth in our saved soul existence waiting until Christ comes again to DELIVER us. When on the LAST DAY He will resurrect our bodies and give us immortal bodies to compliment our ALREADY resurrected souls so that we can step into the New Heavens and the New Earth with Him and live for all Eternity with Him!!!
And CLEARLY – we learn from “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy has 2 MAIN POINTS which are:
HONESTLY -- these 2 MAIN POINTS of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy become pretty evident once we read what was determined for Daniel’s people who we know after the Cross included a 1/3 Remnant of those in all the Gentile Nations also that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah would be saved out of this World’s population recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9. And this is what was to take place during those 70 weeks which began at Christ’s Ascension and is coming to an END at Christ’s 2nd Coming when we read in this paraphrase that “Seventy weeks were determined for ALL of Christ’s SEED . . . to finish the transgression -- to make an end of sins -- to make reconciliation for iniquity -- to bring in everlasting righteousness -- to seal up the vision and prophecy -- and to anoint the most Holy.”
And make no mistake -- the sealing up of the vision and prophecy refers to the BLINDNESS that came upon “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” who REFUSED to believe that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy who had COME!!! And that BLINDNESS only FORESHADOWS the 1st 2 of the LAST 3 WOES that Christ is in the process of pouring out today on those who are of THE SEED OF SATAN. When clearly -- He is pouring out this SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS on those who REFUSE to believe His True Eschatology that prophesied EVERYONE would be in this Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD vs. EVIL and TRUTH vs. LIES that is raging around the Globe NOW TODAY causing this time of Great Tribulation for us in THE TRUE ISRAEL OF GOD.
For if we have the Spiritual eyes to see it and THE MIND OF CHRIST to understand it – we now know that what Christ prophesied – that we “Elect” would SEE “The Abomination of Desolation” -- is being fulfilled today right before our eyes!!! For Christ prophesied that after He had saved everyone in His Book of Life that He would take His restraint off of Satan and LOOSE him to not only rule the WHOLE WORLD – but to lead this FINAL REBELLION of the False Prophets who are of SATAN’S SEED to fight against Christ and those of us who are of CHRIST’S SEED which MUST OCCUR for the LAST DAY’S RAPTURE
to take place.
To PROVE this TRUTH – John was told to take a measurement of the Temple of God recorded in his 3rd vision in Revelation Chapter 11-- which is also what Christ had Abraham do to a certain degree when He told Abraham to walk around the land He was giving to him. And Abraham walking around the Promised Land of the Middle East was just SYMBOLISM of him and us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST receiving the Eternal Possession of the Promised Land of the New Heavens and the New Earth that Christ has waiting for us NOW!!! For clearly Abraham died and never really saw any of this Promised Land because it was just a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE that the Gospel would go to the Gentiles as well as the JEWS. And NOT as a promise that THE JEWS would occupy the LITERAL PHYSICAL PROMISED LAND of Canaan FOREVER – but that Christ would make an Everlasting Eternal Covenant with His SEED that was fulfilled by the Prophecy of Daniel’s 70th Week recorded in Daniel 9:27 which prophesied:
“Then He (JESUS CHRIST!!!) shall confirm a Covenant with many for one week.” (which refers to the NEW COVENANT OF GRACE that Christ came as “the Messiah the Prince” to make with the “many” of us who are of HIS SEED in His Book of Life. In other words – Christ has been confirming the New Covenant during the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy that has lasted for over 2,000 years now!!!) (Daniel 9:27)
How the Prophecy of Genesis 15:18 and the LAND Differs From The Prophecy of Genesis 17:19
Which is the Everlasting Eternal Covenant of Grace
CLEARLY -- Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy has NOTHING to do with the prophecy of Genesis 15:18 which was NOT an Everlasting Eternal Covenant that the Land of Jerusalem belonged to THE JEWS for all Eternity as Man’s False Eschatology teaches relentlessly today. While Genesis 17:19 is an EVERLASTING ETERNAL COVENANT that the Promised Land of Heaven belongs to THE SEED OF CHRIST which are “the saved Jews of the Spirit” – NOT “the unsaved Jews of THE FLESH”!!! In other words -- the New Covenant of Grace was made with “The True Spiritual Israel of God” – NOT with the LITERAL Nation of Israel in the Middle East today. That’s WHY we in the True Spiritual Israel of God believe that the 70th Week of Daniel was FULFILLED by Christ who CAME as “The Messiah the Prince.”
While Dispensationalists and THE JEWS have adopted the same FALSE TEACHINGS that the Pharisees and the Sadducees were BLINDED to believe in – that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is NOT YET FULFILLED and that “the Prince” in Daniel 9:27 is the Future ANTICHRIST – NOT JESUS CHRIST who was “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME!!!
Paul tried to explain from Christ that the TRUE SEED OF ABRAHAM which is THE SEED OF CHRIST – came through the lineage of Isaac which is also THE SEED OF CHRIST!!! But what Dispensationalists along with THE JEWS today have been DECEIVED to believe -- is that the Present Nation of Israel in the Middle East that was formed on May 14, 1948 was A DIVINE DECREE OF GOD. I DON’T THINK SO!!! It was a Decree alright – but it was a Political arrangement by the DECREE OF MAN – NOT THE DECREE OF GOD!!! For Christ formed His Holy Nation before the foundation of the World by DIVINE DECREE and His SEED are made up of those of Abraham’s seed through Isaac just as “The Rapture Truth” REVEALS in Christ’s True Eschatology!!!
And lest we forget Abraham was the Father of MANY NATIONS – NOT just the Nation of Israel!!! Which is WHY Christ had Paul prophesy that “they are NOT ALL of Israel which are of (the Nation of) Israel” recorded in Romans 9:6!!! And CLEARLY -- those who hold to the JUDAIC beliefs of the JUDAISM that the Pharisees and the Sadducees held to which is a CHRIST-REJECTING Religion – are NOT practicing the CHRIST-ACCEPTING Gospel of Christianity today. And make no mistake – Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that JUDAISM and ALL False Religions will END ON THE LAST DAY – and only The True Christianity that He taught will last for ALL ETERNITY – THINK ABOUT IT!!!CLEARLY – when Dispensationalists quote Genesis 12:1-3 which prophesies: “I will bless them them that bless Thee, and curse them that curse Thee” – they are misquoting and misunderstanding that only those IN CHRIST who are of HIS SEED will be BLESSED.
While those who are of the SEED OF SATAN and are in Bondage to Satan with their sins NOT forgiven will be CURSED for NOT being IN CHRIST!!! This verse has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with Christians today being CURSED by Christ for NOT blessing THE JEWS and what they think is their EVERLASTING POSSESSION of the Land in the Middle East.
The Promise of the Land of Canaan was NEVER an Unconditional Promise Made
Just to the Nation of Israel in Joshua’s Day!!!
While I’m definitely NOT Anti-Semitic and ANTI- any race and people group -- as a born-again Christian I KNOW and believe that Christ did NOT promised to give the Land of Canaan to THE JEWS as an Eternal Everlasting Possession FOREVER when He plans to destroy the WHOLE WORLD on the LAST DAY. And that’s because all of this Earth is sitting on SIN-CURSED LAND – even Jerusalem!!! CLEARLY – The land given to the Nation of Israel in Moses’ and Joshua’s Day was “conditional” upon them obeying Christ and having no other Gods before Him. And Christ made that very clear to them on many occasions. He also made it clear that He was NO LONGER OBLIGATED to especially “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” who were NOT of His SEED – after He had fulfilled His promises to the Nation of Israel in Joshua’s Day on Earth.
And TODAY – it is only the indoctrinated teachers of Dispensational Pre-Millennialism which Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” Series is based upon – that has led so many Evangelical Christians NOW to be more politically minded than Biblically minded to think that Christ OWES ALL OF THE JEWS the Land in the Middle East upon which Jerusalem sits as their EVERLASTING ETERNAL POSSESSION. Or that Christ has NOT kept all of His promises that He swore to their Old Testament Fathers!!!
In their arrogance and REFUSAL to believe “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – sadly Dispensationalists have convinced a large part of Christendom that God has NOT yet given the Nation of Israel rest or peace – nor do they believe that He has delivered their enemies into their hand as He promised. But when we search the Scriptures diligently to see what God has to say in His TRUE ESCHATOLOGY -- we see that the truth is a WHOLE LOT different from Man’s ever-so-popular Eschatology that the Late Tim LaHaye promoted in his “Left Behind” series -- REALLY!!!
For according to the ultimate authority which is “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology -- Christ did NOT fail in one single promise that He made to the Fathers of Israel concerning the land. And that’s WHY Christ who is the God of Israel owes the Nation of Israel NOTHING!!! And He certainly DOES NOT owe the bullet-riddled property that the City of Jerusalem sits on in the Middle East today to THE JEWS as their EVERLASTING POSSESSION!!! For He fulfilled all that He swore He would do concerning the land when we read what He had Joshua prophesy:
“So the Lord gave Israel all the land He had sworn to give their ancestors, and they took possession of it and settled there. The Lord gave them rest on every side, just as He had sworn to their ancestors. Not one of their enemies withstood them; the Lord gave all their enemies into their hands. Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; EVERYONE WAS FULFILLED.” (Joshua 21:43-45)
It can’t get much clearer than that – CHRIST FULFILLED all that He promised the Nation of Israel He would do. But the promise of the Land of Canaan was NEVER an unconditional promise. And so when the Israelites forsook God – and we know that they did!!! -- His judgments came upon them. And their enemies surrounded them and conquered them. Scripture is abundantly clear on this point!!! And yet Dispensationalists gloss over the TRUTH of what Christ had Paul prophesy in Galatians when we read that the promise to Abraham and HIS SEED which is THE SEED OF CHRIST was not a promise of the LITERAL LAND of Canaan. And that’s WHY Christ owes the Nation of Israel in the Middle East today NOTHING and they should NOT believe that He will come to their aid in this War now escalating on the Gaza Strip. And neither should Dispensationalists believe that either when we read:
“The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who IS CHRIST.” (Galatians 3:16)
This was NOT a promise to the many seeds of the Nation of Israel – A MILLION TIMES NO!!!! But to the Seed Israel who IS CHRIST!!! And Christ is alerting us through Paul’s prophecy in Galatians that it was not a promise to a LITERAL NATION -- but was a promise to “One” who is CHRIST!!! This is the unconditional promise to The True Spiritual Israel of God which is Christ’s ONLY HOLY NATION. And it was an unconditional promise to us “Elect” because we cease from our works being justified by Christ’s work on the Cross of dying for our sins if we are of HIS SEED. He is the Seed in whom all the Nations of this World have been blessed ALREADY since His Ascension. For the promise and Blessing was NOT of a LITERAL LAND in the Middle East -- but of the spiritual inheritance of the “Promised Land” IN CHRIST!!! For when we are IN CHRIST on Earth existing in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” in our saved soul existence after He saves us – then we are IN HEAVEN ON EARTH!!!!!! And that is an inheritance that is far greater than any bullet-riddled piece of property in the Middle East today.
For we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST have inherited an EVERLASTING COVENANT prophesied in Daniel 9:27 that Christ confirmed and strengthened in His blood at the Cross as we read in Hebrews 9:15-17. It’s NOT a temporal deed to a plot of disputed land being fought over RIGHT NOW – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! It is an inheritance in The Spiritual Kingdom of Heaven that is infinitely more GLORIOUS!!! CLEARLY -- Christ was NOT interested in being a King of the worldly Throne of David but of the HEAVENLY THRONE of David which He took possession of after His ASCENSION INTO HEAVEN!!! And we who are of HIS SEED have been ruling with Him on Thrones just as John saw in his 7thvision either on Earth or in Heaven since that time!!!
I used to believe some of what Dispensationalists believe and teach about the Nation of Israel in the Middle East being God’s Holy Nation. But we are ALL a work in progress and Christ’s Holy Spirit showed me THE TRUTH that The SPIRITUAL ISRAEL OF GOD is THE ONLY Holy Nation He has ever had!!! And it’s WHY I believe that a person who is truly of the SEED OF CHRIST can be HONESTLY MISTAKEN. But when we hear THE TRUTH about the Kingdom of Heaven – that we will either quit being mistaken or cease to be HONEST. And NEEDLESS TO SAY -- I quit being mistaken that ALL JEWS are God’s “Chosen People” -- and that the Land in Israel that the City of Jerusalem sits on is the EVERLASTING POSSESSION of the Nation of Israel in the Middle East today!!!
I’ve run out of space again -- but until my next Commentary on this GREAT TRIBULATION just know that I am FOREVER in His Service!!! Mary Sullivan
