Satan Has Counterfeited The True Eschatology of Christ And the
Counterfeiting of The Second Coming of Christ
Will Probably Be Next!!!
June 4, 2021
Daniel in the Old Testament Days is one of my favorite people who ever lived on this Earth which led me to name one of my sons after him. And Christ has certainly Blessed my life in giving me Daniel as a son – for he has turned out to be so much like Daniel in the Old Testament Days having a heart of GOLD and loving Christ as much as Daniel did. But what we need to understand TODAY is that the Book of Daniel is much more than a treasure trove of Apocalyptic Literature. For it paints a beautiful CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of a man who was loyal and devoted to Christ living out his faith in very troubled times very much like what we are going through now in this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION before the 2nd Coming of Christ.
That’s WHY it’s indeed significant that the Exile of God’s people to Babylon for their unfaithfulness to Him in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day FORESHADOWS today’s Captivity to WORLDLINESS that Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon is holding all of us on Earth CAPTIVE to and making us SLAVES of the WORLDLINESS and immorality that Satan and his SEED are mostly responsible for instigating. For clearly -- Satan’s SEED are the LAWLESS MEN inciting so much of the EVIL TODAY. And that’s WHY Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” is called by John in The Book of Revelation “The Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth” recorded in Revelation 17:1-6. For the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” is where the unsaved have existed on this Earth in their unsaved soul existence giving birth to all of the Evil on this Earth since the Garden of Eden!!!
Which is also WHY Daniel’s life is so important today – for it is an awesome example of a man who endured and survived in very difficult EVIL TIMES just like we are living in this Great Tribulation having to co-exist with those who are of the SEED OF SATAN. And clearly -- Christ prophesied that THE EVIL GENERATION of Satan would be co-existing with us in THE CHOSEN GENERATION of Christ right up to the very LAST DAY. But rest assured that Christ wanted His SEED to survive to the END OF THE WORLD until He comes to RAPTURE us on the LAST DAY. Which is WHY Daniel was given his last 4 visions – so that we who are of the SEED of Christ living today would know that SATAN is “The King of the North” that is TODAY AT WAR with us in Christ’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.” For just as Christ prophesied we are SEEING “The Abomination of Desolation” of Satan ruling the WHOLE WORLD and Christ allowing this to take place as a WORLDWIDE JUDGMENT OF EVIL
And part of this Great Tribulation is that Satan and those who are the Global Elites in League with him in his SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” are now holding everyone in Bondage to them while trying to gain enough POWER so that they can rule the World with SATAN through harsh mandates and by any means possible. And in their quest for POWER they are trying to force all of us to go along with their 2030 Agenda and their “Great Reset” which is none other than Captivity to the WORLDLINESS and the IMMORALITY that has permeated this World since the Garden of Eden because of Satan and those in League with him!!!
And it’s WHY the visions that Christ gave Daniel are so very important for us living today. For these last 4 visions were given to Daniel for those of us who were of the SEED OF CHRIST that would be going through the GREAT TRIBULATION near the very End of Satan’s Final 4thEmpire at the END OF THE WORLD – WHICH IS TODAY!!! And Christ PROVES that we are in this Great Tribulation when He REVEALED to Daniel that we who are of HIS SEED would be “blessed” if we made it to the 1,335th Day of this Great Tribulation – for we would see Him part the very Heavens to DELIVER AND RAPTURE us on the LAST DAY!!!
And clearly – Christ would NOT have REVEALED that to Daniel if we were to be Raptured BEFORE the Great Tribulation as Man’s False Eschatology teaches – THINK ABOUT IT!!! I HONESTLY believe that what Christ had Gabriel tell Daniel at the beginning of the vision of the 70 Weeks and twice during the Last vision recorded in Daniel Chapters 10-12 -- is what He is telling us NOW going through this time of Great Tribulation – that we are “GREATLY BELOVED” and “blessed” because Christ will make sure that we make it to the 1,335th Day because we belong to Him!!! And so did Daniel belong to Christ – and he was told many times while receiving his 4 visions that Christ LOVED him. And rest assured those visions were given to Daniel because Christ thinks of us having to go through this time of Great Tribulation who belong to Him as “GREATLY BELOVED also which is WHY He took the time to have Gabriel explain those visions to Daniel and to us reading the Book of Daniel today!!! For before even giving Daniel the vision of the INFAMOUS 70 Weeks –
Daniel was told by Gabriel:
“And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand. At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are GREATLY BELOVED; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision.” (and rest assured that this vision reveals that Angels can suddenly appear taking on the form of a man like Gabriel did – and that they have the ability to talk to human beings and can open their eyes to see what is being REVEALED to them by Christ Himself – which is something we need to know going into these last of the LAST DAYS!!!!) (Daniel 9:22-23)
And after receiving the prophecy of the 70 Weeks which explained that Christ would be “the Messiah the Prince” who would come the 1st time to save Daniel’s people and then again a 2nd time at the End of the World to DELIVER Daniel’s people after the Final Spiritual Battle and before the LAST DAY’S JUDGMENT – we NOW know that Daniel’s people includes everyone in Christ’s Book of Life. That after the Cross the Middle Wall of separation between Jews and Gentiles was broken down by Christ’s dying on the Cross for the sins of HIS PEOPLE which makes ALL OF US IN THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST today “Daniel’s people.” In other words – the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved out of this World includes people who were from the Old Testament Era and also from the New Testament Era. And not just from both the Old and New Testament days – but also from every race and Nation saved out of this World by Christ’s Grace who are now ALL part of “Daniel’s people”
All 4 of Daniel’s Last Visions Prophesy This Time of Great Tribulation
When Satan is Now Ruling the WHOLE WORLD!!!
CLEARLY – we are today living in the fulfillment of Daniel’s LAST VISION when Satan is ruling the WHOLE WORLD just as King Nebuchadnezzar ruled who was “a type” of Satan ruling the Evil and oppressive Empire of Babylon during Daniel’s day. And in his 4 visions Christ REVEALED to Daniel that both King Nebuchadnezzar and Antiochus IV Epiphanes were “types” of “THE ANTICHRIST” which would be fulfilled by Satan himself at the END of Satan’s 4thand Final Empire of TODAY!!! In other words -- the role of “THE ANTICHRIST” that Daniel was shown would be fulfilled when SATAN would come to power as “The King of the North” during the LAST part of the 2nd Half of the 70th Week which we are living in now. And that this infamous “King of the North” would WAGE WAR against Christ and those of us who were of the SEED OF CHRIST in one last Final Spiritual Battle which is going on TODAY.
And it just can’t be reiterated enough how very blessed we are to have these 4 visions today even though they were especially hard for Daniel to watch – not to mention heartbreaking -- since they REVEALED the Abomination that would be set up and would lead to the DESOLATION of MANY in the Congregation of God when Christ CLEANSED the Temple. And because Daniel saw some of God’s own people REBELLING and the WHOLE WORLD ENDING at the End of the Final Spiritual Battle that “The King of the North” would DECEIVE the Nations to fight – Daniel LITERALLY fainted and was ill for several days. And that’s WHY Christ had Gabriel appear to Daniel and tell him again that he was “GREATLY BELOVED” and to explain for our behalf living today what these last 4 visions meant when we read:
“Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. . . . Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” (which of course is the time of THE END and the days of Great Tribulation that precede the 2nd Coming of Christ that we are living in TODAY!!!) (Daniel 10:14)
This LAST VISION recorded in Daniel Chapters 10-12 REVEALS the Final Spiritual Battle that THE WHOLE WORLD is involved in TODAY which is causing this time of Great Tribulation. For it’s very obvious that Christ has now LOOSED SATAN and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS to fight it!!! And lest we have forgotten – Daniel was told that the Statue of Satan that King Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream had legs of iron with feet partly of iron and clay which represented DEMONS mingling with the SEED OF SATAN to foster the End-Time wickedness that we see happening all around the Globe TODAY!!! And no doubt it was NOT easy for Daniel to receive the hard cold TRUTH that the Human Race was going to END at the End of this Final Spiritual Battle that “The King of the North” is leading today. Which is WHY we read in the conversation between Gabriel and Daniel that Gabriel seeing how distraught Daniel was tried to encourage Daniel with these words:
“Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” When he had spoken such words to me, I turned my face toward the ground and became speechless. And suddenly, one having the likeness of the sons of men touched my lips; then I opened my mouth and spoke, saying to him who stood before me, “My lord, because of the vision my SORROWS have overwhelmed me, and I have retained no strength. For how can this servant of my lord talk with you, my lord? As for me, no strength remains in me now, nor is any breath left in me.” (God Bless him!!! For I can only imagine how hard it was for Daniel seeing a vision of the END of this Human Race – THINK ABOUT IT!! And that’s WHY Gabriel told Daniel again that Christ loved him!)
“Then again, the one having the likeness of a man touched me and strengthened me. And he said, “O man GREATLY BELOVED, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!” So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.” Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come. (and as I’ve mentioned in previous commentaries it is Satan who was ULTIMATELY the Prince of these Kingdoms even though they also had Earthly Kings!!!) But I will tell you what is noted in the Scripture of TRUTH. (and Praise God for His Words of TRUTH in His True Eschatology given to Daniel!!!) No one upholds me against these, except Michael your prince.” (and we know that Christ is called “Michael” – for the name “Michael” means “He who is ASSUREDLY GOD”!!!) (Daniel 10:14-21)
Gabriel was of course trying to prepare Daniel for what he was about to be shown – that at the END of the Battle with “The King of the North” – it would be THE END OF THE WORLD and the Great Tribulation for Daniel’s people who are ALL of us today in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!! And in the rest of this Commentary I pray that I can continue to provide evidence that demands a verdict that Satan is COUTERFEITING ALL of Christ’s SYSTEM OF BIBLICAL TRUTHS with SATANIC LIES and Doctrines of Demons beginning with the very Eschatology of Christ!!! But FORTUNATELY Christ has given us “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in His True Eschatology to guide us through this Great Tribulation!!! And that Eschatology is AMILLENNIALISM – NOT the ever so popular but FALSE Eschatology of Man today that is Dispensational Pre-Millennialism which Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” Series is based upon!!!
Knowing What Eschatology Christ Taught is Essential To One’s Salvation Because Satan is Counterfeiting These End-Times With The Satanic Lies of Man’s False Eschatology!!!
HONESTLY – I could write a whole Book on the last 4 visions that Christ REVEALED to Daniel which are prophesied in the last 6 Chapters of the Book of Daniel that REVEAL the Final Events of this Present Age of Humanity. But there is NO time to write a Book BEFORE the Rapture of the LAST DAY because according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology the Events of these End-Times are moving quickly now and we are nearing the 1,335th day which is the LAST DAY of this prophesied time of Great Tribulation and the DAY Christ will Return to Rapture us “Elect” and pour out His WRATH on those “Left Behind” who belong to the SEED OF SATAN!!!
And that’s WHY understanding these 4 visions given to Daniel are so VITALLY important to understand – for these 4 visions REVEAL Satan’s rise to power as “THE ANTICHRIST” in his last 4th Kingdom depicted in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the Statue of SATAN. And because we are living now in the last part of the 4th and Final Kingdom of Satan – suffice it to say these Commentaries are the best I can do – for each one could be my LAST COMMENTARY -- REALLY!!! Which is WHY in this Commentary below Christ has put a burden on my heart to show how SATAN has COUNTERFEITED His True Eschatology with the False Eschatology of Man. So this Commentary will NOT go into how the Global Elites are planning to COUNTERFEIT the 2nd Coming of Christ with a UFO Invasion which will come next.
And as I’ve already mentioned -- the 3rd vision recorded in Daniel Chapter 9 provides intriguing chronological insights into Christ’s 1stand 2nd Comings with special emphasis on the final “half week” of the End-Times Desolation of the Apostate Church that Daniel saw would be CLEANSED over a period of 2,300 days. And during this time of CLEANSING THE TEMPLE is when Christ REVEALED to Daniel that there would be a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for God’s people because of the rise of Satan as “THE ANTICHRIST” who would lead the Final Rebellion and Spiritual Battle Against Christ and His Kingdom of Heaven. And this Final Spiritual Battle will EXPOSE those who are fighting along with Christ and those who are fighting AGAINST CHRIST – which is how the Temple will be CLEANSED. For Christ will EXPOSE those in League with Satan which will become known to us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. For clearly those in League with Satan will show how LAWLESS and ANTI-CHRIST and ANTI-CHRISTIAN they are by Christ EXPOSING their EVIL DEEDS which is happening more every day now!!!
Daniel’s last 4th vision recorded in Daniel 10-12 was the topic of my last Commentary – and I pray that if you read it you understood that Daniel’s vision confirmed that SATAN is the infamous “King of the North” who is NOW DECEIVING the Nations to go to WAR with Christ and those of us in Christ’s Kingdom of Heaven BEFORE the Rapture and His 2nd Coming. And that the Great Tribulation won’t END until the 1,335th Day or the LAST DAY of this Final Spiritual Battle. In other words -- Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that Satan will use men like Antiochus IV Epiphanes who will do his bidding and will have Satan’s EVIL Antichrist Spirit who will think that they are doing a service to GOD by silencing and killing and neutralizing the witness of all of us who follow Christ now at His 2nd Coming. And that is just what took place with the Pharisees and the Sadducees at Christ’s 1st Coming!!! And while the Global Elites who want to rule the World with their “Great Reset” are puffed up with PRIDE like Satan in thinking that THEY ARE GOD and can rule this World better than Christ can – all their efforts will fail as Christ brings their Kingdom of Babylon down to ruins!!!
And REGARDLESS of what the popular Eschatology of Man teaches when it promotes THE LIE that what Eschatology one holds is NOT ESSENTIAL to one’s Salvation – I respectfully beg to differ!!! I mean – how can the study of Christ’s Kingdom of Heaven and His DIVINE PLAN concerning the last or final events in Human History which is WHAT Eschatology is -- NOT be ESSENTIAL to one’s Salvation???!!! THINK ABOUT IT -- Christ is the ONLY ONE who knows the END from the Beginning – and isn’t it just INSANE to think that it doesn’t matter to Christ or NOT if we know what His Plans are for these last days of Human History??!!! That His DIVINE PLAN is somehow NOT ESSENTIAL to our being DELIVERED on the LAST DAY???!!! That’s almost LAUGHABLE if it wasn’t so tragic!!!
AGAIN -- THINK ABOUT IT – if one doesn’t know Christ’s True Eschatology which contains His DIVINE PLAN for these last of the last day – then they are walking around in SPIRITUAL DARKNESS and under the MIND CONTROL of Satan. For Satan has now been allowed by Christ to BLIND those in his Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” that don’t know enough about Bible Prophecy and the True Eschatology of Christ to even KNOW that we are TODAYIN THE GREAT TRIBULATION. And sadly for them -- they will be the ones who Christ prophesied will be “taken by surprise” if they don’t know “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in His True Eschatology that REVEALS that this Final Spiritual Battle will END with Christ parting the very Heavens to RAPTURE US and then to pour out the LAST 7TH PLAGUE that will destroy the Whole Earth and Universe by FIRE along with them in it!!!
In other words -- what position we take on the Millennial reign of Christ’s Kingdom is EXTREMELY ESSENTIAL to our being DELIVERED and RAPTURED on the Last Day – for just as Daniel was told: “NONE of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand and like the STARS will guide many to righteousness.” (those words are recorded for us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST TODAY who are trusting in Christ’s True Eschatology and Gospel to DELIVER US and are encouraging others to move forward in faith!!!) (Daniel 12) And despite the many voices of denial – ESCHATOLOGICAL AGNOSTICISM is like being BLINDED to a large part of the Scriptures concerning the Kingdom of God – especially the TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN which Daniel was shown was THE TIME OF THE END OF THE WORLD -- and that’s WHY it is ESSENTIAL to know the final events in History!!!
Prophecy is the consistency of Scripture that REVEALS CHRIST’S SYSTEM OF TRUTH -- yet many ignore these consistencies in favor of the inconsistencies in Man’s False Eschatology which is WHY it is important to understand which Eschatology that Christ taught!!! Because rest assured that SATAN has DEFINITELY COUNTERFEITED “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology with the Counterfeit False but ever-so-popular Eschatology of Man today!!!
And as I’ve written in countless Commentaries before – the WHOLE WORD of God is PROPHETIC in that it is ALL 100% DIVINE TRUTH. And that makes it ALL ESSENTIAL to one’s Salvation -- REALLY!!! But when Dispensationalists disagree with so much of Christ’s True Eschatology and then claim that it is NOT ESSENTIAL to Salvation” – all I can say is “REALLY???!!!
According to Christ’s DIVINE WORDS OF TRUTH -- what is indisputably – absolutely – and uncompromisingly ESSENTIAL to the Christian Faith is its Doctrine of Salvation!!! And if Dispensationalism has actually departed from the only way of Salvation which Christ taught – then they have believed A LIE!!! In other words -- if Man’s Word is your authority and Man’s Word -- DENIES – CONTRADICTS – DISTORTS – and CHALLENGES what Christ’s Words says is TRUE about SALVATION – then it is A LIE!!! For no matter how many important TRUTHS Dispensationalism proclaims – it can NOT be called Christian if it empties Christianity of its “ESSENTIAL TRUTHS” about Salvation which is the CORE TRUTH of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven.
A “cult” is defined as a religion which claims to be Christian while emptying Christianity of that which is ESSENTIAL to it -- which is DEFINITELY the Doctrine of SALVATION. And Frankly when Dispensationalism claims that Christ has 2 Bodies of Believers which are: 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church and never the twain shall meet until after He has set up His Millennial Kingdom on Earth for a 1000 years which they say hasn’t happen yet – THEY HAVE FALLEN FOR A LIE pure and simple!!!
For the ESSENTIAL TRUTH of Salvation is Christ teaching that HIS CAUSE of coming to Earth was to restore a Remnant of the Nation of Israel to God and to bring the Light of the Gospel of the Millennial Kingdom that was inaugurated at the Cross to a remnant of us Gentiles also. And that we would ALL be reconciled – both Jews and Gentiles together -- into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And clearly Christ also taught that we are reigning with Him in His Millennial Kingdom NOW. And when Dispensationalism DENIES THESE ESSENTIAL TRUTHS -- that is what denies Dispensationalism any claim to Christianity AT ALL!!! For the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy REVEALS that “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME was CHRIST. And He came to save everyone in His Book of Life which includes a REMNANT of Old and New Testament Saints as well as Jews and Gentiles from every Nation on Earth after the Cross!!! And that ONE BODY of Believers make up Christ’s Holy Nation today.
Amillennialism and Pre-Millennialism Are Actually TOTALLY Incompatible With Each Other Biblically Which Means that Only ONE IS TRUE!!!
While there are 4 Eschatological positions taught today -- only one Eschatology is THE TRUTH according to Christ. And that’s WHY it is ESSENTIAL to know which Eschatology Christ taught. And Amillennialism is what Christ taught – for what is Today called Amillennialism teaches THE ESSENTIAL TRUTHS of Christ’s True Gospel. And there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that demands a verdict that SATAN is COUNTERFEITING the Truths of Christ’s True Gospel and DECEIVING much of Christendom that Dispensational Pre-Millennialism is the TRUE ESCHATOLOGY that Christ taught through Books like Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” Series.
And if one has bought into Tim LaHaye’s Eschatology of a Pre-Trib Rapture from reading his “Left Behind” series – then they owe it to themselves to at least understand WHY the Amillennialism that Christ taught is Biblically incompatible with the Pre-Millennialism that the ever-so-popular Eschatology of Today teaches. For this False Eschatology of Man teaches that Christ will return to Earth to rule in a LITERAL PHYSICAL Temple in Jerusalem in a temporary Kingdom where the Jews will reign with Him as His Chosen people for a 1000 years. And that is WHY the Eschatology of Pre-Millennialism LITERALLY means “Before the Millennium.” In other words – Dispensationalists teach that Christ will return BEFORE the Future 1000 year Millennium that they claim will be inaugurated on Earth AFTER THE RAPTURE of the Church!!! And CLEARLY -- that is NOT the Eschatology that Christ taught!!!
Just as a refresher -- there are 4 Eschatological positions taught today – which are : 1) Amillennialism – 2) Pre-Millennialism – 3) Post-Millennialism -- and 4) Preterism – but ONLY ONE of these views can be “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!! And in the rest of this Commentary I will only be explaining what the Eschatology of Dispensational Pre-Millennial teaches because that is the extremely popular Eschatology that so many Evangelical Christians have accepted as TRUTH. And I will be comparing it with Amillennialism which the Bible PROVES that Christ actually taught!!!!!!
And because only the Eschatology that Christ taught is THE TRUE GOSPEL – they is WHY His Eschatology is ESSENTIAL TO SALVATION – for the other 3 are COUNTERFEIT and A LIE. And NO ONE gets into Heaven believing THE LIE of a False Gospel or a False Eschatology which Christ was NOT the Author of. That is WHY Christ had Paul prophesy what we read in Galatians not ONCE but TWICE. For Paul prophesied that anyone believing in the “strong delusion” that they are SAVED by believing a False Gospel are “ACCURSED” and NOT SAVED AT ALL when he prophesied:
“But even if we, or an Angel from Heaven, preach any other Gospel to you than what we have preached to you, (which was Christ’s TRUE GOSPEL!!!) let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other Gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.” (those are very strong words against FALSE PROPHETS to be sure who promote False Gospels -- for they are calling Christ’s Gospel A LIE!!!) (Gal. 1:8-9)
And CLEARLY – if one studies what Amillennialism teaches – then they can see beyond a shadow of a doubt that Amillennialism is NOT a False Eschatology -- but what Christ and His Disciples taught. For this Eschatology teaches that the Millennial reign of Christ is NOT Future -- but is ETERNAL and was inaugurated at the Cross. Not to mention that Amillennialism also teaches that Christ restored His Kingdom and began reigning in it after His resurrection and Ascension. And that those of HIS SEED who were set FREE from the BONDAGE of SATAN – SIN and the 2nd DEATH by His dying in our place for our sins at Cross when He came the 1st time – which was prophesied in Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy -- confirms that the 1st Half of Daniel’s Prophecy was FULFILLED. And that we “Elect” have been reigning with Christ from the time His Kingdom was inaugurated at the Cross until NOW. And clearly -- unlike the Kingdoms of Man – Christ taught that His Kingdom was SPIRITUAL and is within us.
But most importantly -- Amillennialism teaches that Christ will reign in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” on Earth where our saved souls have been translated when Christ saved each of us in our own lifetimes -- until His 2nd Coming. That He will NOT be reigning on a LITERAL temporal physical Throne of David upon this sin cursed earth in the Future – but that He has ALREADY come as “the Messiah the Prince” recorded in Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy to reign upon the Throne of David in the Kingdom of Heaven and on Earth in the Hearts of those of us He has saved.
CLEARLY -- the word “Amillennial” is understood to mean: “no Millennial reign on an Earthly or a worldly Throne.” That Christ will NOT be reigning on a PHYSICAL LITERAL THRONE for a Future 1000 years because He is reigning now in the hearts of those of us He has saved and indwelled with His Holy Spirit!!!
In other words -- this view of Eschatology which is today called Amillennialism which Christ and His Disciples all taught -- REVEALS that by Christ’s death and resurrection and ascension to the Throne of David in Heaven that we “Elect” are reigning NOW with Christ in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” on Earth in our saved soul existence. And that this RESTORED MILLENNIAL KINGDOM of Christ will be fully realized and manifested in Heaven at Christ’s soon 2nd Coming on the LAST DAY which is “The Day of the Lord”!!! HONESTLY – this is the Gospel that Christ taught in a nutshell – which is TODAY called “Amillennialism” and has now been taken to every Nation on Earth over the last 2,000 or more years of Church Outreach as the TRUE GOSPEL of the
Kingdom of Heaven.
But sadly – the Devil is in the details when SATAN has COUNTERFEITED the Millennial reign of Christ on Earth by getting MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of professed Christians to believe in Dispensational Pre-Millennialism which teaches that Christ was NOT “the Messiah the Prince” who came in Daniel 9:27 – that this Prophecy is about “THE ANTICHRIST” – NOT JESUS CHRIST!!! HONESTLY – even though Dispensationalists vehemently believe that Christ has NOT restored His Millennial Kingdom on Earth yet for all of THE JEWS in the Nation of Israel – that is just NOT TRUE!!! For Christ went to the Cross with the sins of EVERYONE in His Book of Life who were always HIS SEED. And His SEED included ALL the Jews that were saved. For the TRUTH REVEALED to Zechariah was that only a 1/3 Remnant of the World’s population recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 were the saved SEED of Christ – meaning that only a 1/3 Remnant of the Jews were saved and a 1/3 Remnant of the Gentiles were saved. And when Christ rose from the Dead – the sins of ALL of His SEED were purged by His Death and resurrection!!!
And by SATAN deceiving Professed Christians to buy into the COUNTERFEIT Eschatology of Man that falsely teaches that Christ has NOT torn down the Middle Wall of Separation and has NOT yet reconciled both Jews and Gentiles into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST -- they have been DECEIVED!!! For there is only ONE TRUE BODY of Christ – NOT 2 which Dispensationalist say are: 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church. And this is WHY Daniel was told that “The King of the North” would be EXCEEDINGLY successful in his campaign of NEUTRALIZING the Gospel of Christ when he was LOOSED to DECEIVE THE NATIONS. And John saw in his 7th vision what is being fulfilled with so many Christians falling for the LIES of Man’s False Eschatology – for Satan is for sure DECEIVING MANY!!!
As Part of Satan’s “Strong Delusions” He has Convinced Dispensationalists That Augustine was the Author of Amillennialism – NOT CHRIST!!!
One of Satan’s techniques of silencing THE TRUTH is to have his False Prophets accuse those standing up for THE TRUTH as LYING and promoting conspiracy theories when they themselves are LIARS and DENIERS OF THE TRUTH!!! And that proves true not only in Politics -- but also with the Gospel of Christ. For sadly – Dispensational Pre-Millennialism teaches that Christ is NOT the King of the Jews yet and won’t be until He comes to RESTORE the Kingdom in the 1000 year Millennial Age to come. All I can say is: “Wasn’t Christ the King of the Jews when the Disciples were on Earth – or have I missed something”???!!! Or were the Disciples DECEIVED to believe Christ when He taught that He was “the Messiah the Prince” of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy who had COME to restore His Kingdom to the rightful heirs???!!!
The Pharisees and the Sadducees sure thought that Christ was an imposter and was NOT “the Messiah the Prince” who had COME to save them from their sins. So were the Disciples DECEIVED or were the Pharisees and the Sadducees BLINDED to THE TRUTH???!!! I mean – which is it???!!! Dispensationalists teach that the Kingdom has somehow been postponed for the Jews until all the Gentiles come in and that THEN at the END OF THE WORLD NOW that Christ will FINALLY restore the Kingdom -- REALLY??!!! Does that mean that it wasn’t restored to its rightful heirs for anyone
up until now???!!!
But what’s even worse – is that Dispensationalists are always trying to discredit the Amillennialism that Christ taught that His Kingdom had COME by claiming that Augustine (Augustin, AD 400) was the author of what is today called the Amillennial view of the Kingdom of Christ. Others credit Origen (3rd century) as the chief architect of this teaching. But neither of these conclusions are true – for the term “Amillennial” was not even known to either Origen or Augustine.
While it is true that these two men were very instrumental in bringing the TRUE GOSPEL of Christ to the forefront of the Church of their day – the Eschatology of Amillennialism by no means originated with Augustine or Origen – HARDLY!!! – it originated with CHRIST!!! For Amillennialism is what Christ taught – that the Kingdom of Heaven had COME when He came as “the Messiah the Prince” prophesied in Daniel 9:27 which was the fulfillment of the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And in the same way -- the Reformation was the restoring of doctrines faithful to Scripture – NOT the start of them!!! In other words -- Augustine's noted preaching of what the Scriptures taught about the Kingdom was in response to the teaching of Eschatological ERROR in his day.
It was NOT the beginnings of a “NEW” teaching – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! -- it was the returning to what Christ taught as THE TRUTH about His Kingdom having ALREADY COME -- just as the reformation was. And that’s WHY what is commonly called “Amillennialism” is as old as the Scriptures themselves – THINK ABOUT IT!!! For Amillennialism is what Christ taught which goes all the way back to the 1st Century!!! And Augustine certainly came AFTER Christ!!!
HONESTLY – one has to do just a little research into Biblical History to understand that Pre-Millennialism is the Historically traditional Old Testament Judaic belief that an Earthly Messiah would come to reign in Israel. And after the Cross -- this Old Testament tradition found its way into some parts of the early Church -- as did many other Jewish fables recorded in Titus 1:14; 1st Timothy 1:4; and 2ndTimothy 4:2-4. And while these fables about an Earthly reign for the Nation Israel -- where The Messiah would come back to Earth as a man to rule on the LITERAL THRONE OF DAVID -- was the lifelong dream of the Jewish Nation– it was NOT the True Eschatology that Christ taught AT ALL!!! In fact – that is WHY so much of the Nation of Israel missed recognizing Christ at His 1st Coming because they had been taught Eschatological ERROR. AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!! For now Dispensational Pre-Millennialism is just a modern day name for the same old doctrines of the Chiliasm -- or Judaism that the Pharisees and the Sadducees taught – that the Messiah would reign on Earth in a LITERALY PHYSICAL TEMPLE with THE JEWS reigning as His True Chosen People!!!
And it also needs to be understood that the Eschatological terms of today did NOT come into prominence until recently – for just as Amillennialism was not called Amillennialism until relatively recently -- that doctrine is truly as old as Christ’s Ministry on Earth – REALLY!!! AND SO IT GOES with Pre-Millennialism– for it too was not called Pre-Millennialism until recently -- but this doctrine is also just as old as the Judaism that the Pharisees taught in the 1st Century. And it just can’t be reiterated enough that Pre-Millennialism has as its foundation the expectations of the old Jewish tradition of a coming worldly Kingdom advent of The Messiah reigning on Earth. And when Christ was rejected as “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME by so much of the Nation of Israel – the Jews kept looking for a LITERAL future reign of Christ. And while they are still waiting for that reign TODAY – they do NOT expect the Messiah to be JESUS!!!
That’s WHY History reveals that Chiliasm which is really Judaism or what has become known today as Dispensational Pre-Millennialism that the Late Tim LaHaye based his Pre-Trib-Rapture Theory of his “Left Behind” Series on -- was simply a rebirth or offshoot of the Old Testament Judaic Kingdom beliefs cloaked in New Testament apparel. In other words – it is simply a modification and a continuation of the very same erroneous doctrines and misconceptions about the Messiah -- and His Government and reign and the coming Earthly Peace that Israel longed for when Christ first appeared unto them.
And the word “Chiliasm” Historically took on the added meaning of a time of Universal peace when the downtrodden would prosper. And this of course was a welcomed theology due to the fact that the Jewish tradition held -- and still holds to this DAY!!! -- that the prophesy of peace was an Earthly peace between the Nations in the Middle East rather than an inner Peace with God that surpasses all understanding as Christ taught recorded in Philippians 4:7.
The Chiliastic view was that since the pattern of six days in God’s creation process was followed by a day of rest – then it only stood to reason that this pattern carried over into the Kingdom. In other words – they believed that after 6000 years of History there would be 1000 years of peace or rest for the Jews of the Nation of Israel. This belief was thought to be supported by the Scripture that says 1000 years is as one day recorded in 2nd Peter 3:8. But here’s the trouble with that erroneous Eschatology -- the 6000 years have come and gone – and this Eschatology has PROVEN TO BE FALSE – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And it was only after these heresies began to grow in the Church that Augustine and others considered the Chiliast doctrine important enough to speak out about it. And clearly Augustine and those speaking out against Chiliasm did NOT intend to cause a rebellion -- but to restore the major school of thought in what is now known as Amillennialism which is what Christ taught!!! And that was also the very same “restoring” or returning to sound Biblical principles which characterized the Reformation.
CLEARLY – Augustine’s exhortation to the Church was a plea for them to understand the Millennial Kingdom of Christ in the light of God’s Unadulterated Word rather than worldly or carnal rules and thrones of MAN. And because of Augustine’s teaching Chiliasm was sent to an early grave!!! And the Church began calling this FALSE ESCHATOLOGY “a doctrine of worldliness”!!! And rest assured that Augustine’s testimony was TRUE when he taught that the Scriptures bear witness that the Church is the SPIRITUAL KINGDOM OF GOD upon the Earth -- and that Christ was presently reigning on the Throne of David now in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where our souls have been translated by Christ if He has saved us!!!
But SADLY – Satan has today been successful at COUNTERFEITING “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology by reviving the Chiliasm that was the Pre-Millennialism that Augustine helped send to an early grave in the Reformation Era with Augustine helping to restore again the Amillennialism that Christ actually taught. For Chiliasm was brought back by Baptist layman William Miller in the early and mid-1800’s. And then in the late 1850’s John Nelson Darby put forth a new form of Pre-Millennialism calling it Dispensationalism. And it became an Eschatology which taught that God interacts with man in epochs or periods of time called “dispensations.” This view was brought into the mainstream by Cyrus Scofield with the publication of his “Scofield Reference Bible” and has TODAY become popularized by Prophecy Books written by Evangelical Christians who teach Dispensationalism is the TRUE ESCHATOLOGY OF CHRIST.
And in our day at Christ’s soon 2nd Coming -- Christians have been told over and over again by Pre-Millennial Authors like the Late Tim LaHaye that Christ has a special love for the Jewish race even if they continue to THIS VERY DAY to deny that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME just as most of the Pharisees and the Sadducees and the Jews did at His 1stComing. This DENIAL OF THE TRUTH -- besides being in direct contradiction to Christ’s teaching on the Kingdom of Heaven and who is in His Holy Nation of the True Spiritual Israel of God -- makes the Eschatology of Dispensationalism FALSE!!! For “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology explicitly teaches that “they are not all Israel, which are of Israel” as we read in Romans 9:6!!! That Christ only saved A REMNANT!!!
And clearly – Christ taught Individual salvation -- NOT National or racial salvation. And the bottom line of Dispensational Pre-Millennialism teaches that a person’s racial descent – meaning being physically being born of Jewish descent – is what makes ALL OF THE JEWS Christ’s True Chosen People forever. That merely by being born of Jewish blood regardless if they believe that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME or not – makes them one of the “Chosen People” and “the apple of God’s eye” which is just another DECEPTION!!!
Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that NO ONE will be “Left Behind” AFTER the Rapture
On The Last Day Because it is END of The Human Race!!!
What Sir Walter Scott wrote in 1808 is TRUE today when he wrote: “Oh, what a tangled Web we weave when first we practice to DECEIVE”!!! And make no mistake – Satan and his SEED are the greatest DECEIVERS OF ALL!!! But the Bible is the REAL Book of TRUTH that REVEALS that when one LIES or acts dishonestly they WILL BE EXPOSED by Christ Himself in due time. And CLEARLY -- now is the time that Christ is CLEANSING THE TEMPLE just as He REVEALED to Daniel He would. And Luke confirmed that TRUTH by prophesying: “For there is nothing covered that will not be REVEALED, nor hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.” (Luke 12:2-3)
Rest assured that Christ is NOT coming back to save anyone – but to CLEANSE His Congregation of FALSE PROPHETS who DENY – CONTRADICT – DISTORT and CHALLENGE His TRUE ESCHATOLOGY!!! And THE REFUSAL to believe that there is only THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that Christ has ALREADY SAVED as Dispensational Pre-Millennialism refuse to accept as TRUTH – makes this “ever-so-popular” Eschatology of Man a COUNTERFEIT ESCHATOLOGY.
For “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that there is no Biblical – logical -- or rational reason to look for a “so-called” Golden Age of future fulfillment of the Kingdom of Heaven. For we who are fortunate enough to be of the SEED OF CHRIST indeed are living in the Restored Millennial Age of fulfillment. In other words -- Christ did not come to make the WHOLE WORLD Christian – HARDLY!!! He came to make a REMNANT Christians!!! And to restore that saved Remnant as Heirs to His Restored Millennial Kingdom. For Christ’s True Eschatology consistently prophesies a remnant Chosen by GRACE out of the world – NEVER that it was Christ’s DIVINE PLAN to save the WHOLE WORLD in general.
The True Reason For Christ’s 2nd Coming
CLEARLY – the Future Kingdom of Heaven is the CONSUMMATION of what has ALREADY been established by Christ on Earth which is what is known as Amillennialism and the Eschatology that Christ taught!!! The analogy that Christ gives is that of a Bride who is already married but hasn’t yet consummated the marriage. And that is “the hidden” and CRYPTIC PICTURE of the Kingdom of Heaven that Christ paints for us with His 2nd Coming. For at His 2nd Coming we will actually take PHYSICAL POSSESSION of an inheritance that is already legally ours by the GRACE OF CHRIST
saving our souls on the Cross!!!
In other words -- the Amillennialism that Christ taught is that we reign with Him now in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” in our saved soul existence on Earth NOW waiting for His 2nd Coming to CONSUMMATE His ALREADY RESTORED Millennial Kingdom. And our Final Estate will be the New Heavens and the New Earth which Christ will Rapture us to on the LAST DAY of this Human Race!!!
This is the PEACE that surpasses all understanding and will help us make it to the LAST 1,335th Day of this Great Tribulation when we will be saved from THE WRATH of Christ pouring out the 7th Plague that will destroy the whole Earth and Universe by FIRE!!! It is SATAN AND HIS SEED who will suffer the 2nd Death which is being thrown into HELL on the LAST DAY for their sins – NOT those of us who are THE SEED OF CHRIST who will be “BLESSED” to have made it through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION. For Christ REVEALED to Daniel that the Rapture takes place on the 1,335th Day that is the LAST DAY of this Spiritual Warfare!!!
Which means that the TRUE REASON for Christ’s 2nd Coming -- is to RAPTURE AND DELIVER His SEED and on the same LAST DAY to Judge and throw Satan and his SEED into HELL. In other words – His 2nd Coming is the CONSUMMATION – the CULMINATION – and the bringing to COMPLETETION the ALREADY realized Restored Kingdom of Heaven!!! For Christ’s resurrection from the Dead is what made the Kingdom of God a REALITY – and His 2nd Coming is what will CONSUMMATE IT!!!
And when that LAST DAY takes place then the HUMAN RACE will be over!!! This is the Eschatology that Christ taught!!! And until that FINAL LAST DAY just know that I will be forever In His Service writing these Commentaries for Him!!! Mary Sullivan
