The True Eschatology of Christ Does NOT Teach a Pre-Trib Rapture and
7 Years of Tribulation For THE JEWS Based on Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy –
Man’s False Eschatology Teaches Those LIES!!!
July 17, 2021
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is what Isaiah wrote about Christ’s unadulterated Words of TRUTH as it relates to False Prophets who convince the Congregation of God to trust in LIES when he boldly prophesied of these False Prophets: “To the Law and to the testimony! If they do NOT speak according to THIS WORD, it is because there is NO LIGHT in them.” (and because there is NO LIGHT in them – NONE of God’s people should be listening to them – REALLY!!!) (Isaiah 8:20)
Isaiah -- like all of Christ’s True Prophets -- knew that the False Prophets who were in League with Satan were always DECEIVED by Satan into thinking that their words were from GOD – when THEY WERE FROM HIM – NOT GOD!!! And that was true when Hananiah stood up in the Congregation of God which had just been drug off into 70 years of Babylonian Captivity -- when CLEARLY Hananiah’s conscience had been “seared with a hot iron” when he prophesied LIES. And that was just what Christ had Paul prophesy would be the case of so many False Prophets before His 2nd Coming. For Paul prophesied from Christ that THE LAWLESS MAN or “Man of Sin” who would be ANTICHRIST would be one whose “conscience was seared with a hot iron” in thinking NOTHING of convincing God’s people to trust in LIES about the events leading up to THE RAPTURE and Christ’s 2nd Coming because they THEMSELVES would be under the MIND CONTROL and the “strong delusions” of SATAN!!!
And for sure Hananiah was one of the Old Testament False Prophets whose conscience had been “seared” by the LIES OF SATAN – for he was telling Christ’s Old Testament Congregation that they would NOT have to endure 70 years of Babylonian Captivity but would get to go back to Jerusalem in just 2 years which we KNOW WAS A LIE. For Bible Prophecy clearly REVEALS that there were 70 years of Babylonian Captivity ALRIGHT – and rest assured that it was punishment from Christ for the Apostasy and unfaithfulness to Him that the Old Testament Congregation had fallen into!!! And while the message of NOT having to endure that time of Great Tribulation must have made Hananiah extremely popular -- his popularity was short lived and interrupted by Christ sending His True Prophet Jeremiah to tell THE TRUTH to God’s people – that they would have to endure 70 years of Babylonian Captivity regardless of what Hananiah as a FALSE PROPHET was predicting and prophesying. I’m sure Jeremiah was not popular AT ALL for giving that BAD NEWS!!! But being the True Prophet of Christ that He was -- he obeyed and told Hananiah these
very sobering words from Christ:
“‘Thus says the Lord: “You have broken the yokes of wood, but you have made in their place yokes of iron.” For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “I have put a yoke of iron on the neck of ALL THESE NATIONS, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon; and they shall serve him. (and rest assured that King Nebuchadnezzar was a “type” of Satan which the WHOLE WORLD is being made to serve today in this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION for Mankind’s unfaithfulness to God just like in Jeremiah and Daniel and Ezekiel’s Day!!!)
“Then the (True) Prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the (False) Prophet, “Hear now, Hananiah, the Lord has NOT sent you, but you make this people trust in A LIE. Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will cast you from the face of the Earth. This year you shall die, because you have taught rebellion against the Lord.’ ” So Hananiah the (False) Prophet died the same year in the seventh month.” (ouch!!!) (Jer. 28:12-17)
WHAT A LESSON this was and still IS TODAY for everyone who claims to be speaking for Christ – that they had better make sure that their Words are from Christ’s mouth and NOT their own mouth and deluded mind!!! For if their words disagree with Christ’s Words -- especially His True Eschatology which predicts the TIMING OF THE RAPTURE and His 2nd Coming and the events leading up to it – then they will only receive condemnation from Christ which will lead to their DESOLATION on the LAST DAY’S JUDGMENT!!! For just as John saw in his 1st vision – Christ will spit these Lukewarm Christians -- who THINK they are rich and know everything when they have clearly been BLINDED by Satan -- out of His mouth so fast at His 2nd Coming that it will make their heads spin as we read recorded in Revelation 3:14-18!!!
And HONESTLY -- when Dispensationalists RELENTLESSLY PROPHESY today that THE GREAT TRIBULATION is NOT for The Church – and that we are DEFINITELY NOT in the Great Tribulation right now because Daniel 70th Week is yet FUTURE and just for THE JEWS – aren’t they AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORDS concerning His 2nd Coming just as much as the Pharisees and the Sadducees were AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORDS concerning His 1st Coming???!!! If Dispensationalists think they are NOT denying – contradicting – distorting – and CHALLENGING Christ’s Word – then they need to give proof in Scripture of a Pre-Trib Rapture and that the Great Tribulation is the fulfillment of the Future 70th Week of Daniel meant only for THE JEWS!!! I mean – think about it – if they can’t back their words up by SCRIPTURE – then how is their telling Professed Christians TODAY that they will NOT have to go through the Great Tribulation any different than Hananiah saying that God’s Old Testament Congregation would NOT have to go through 70 years of Babylonian Captivity???!!!
That’s WHY I cringe when popular World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts who have Mega Churches and a great following on International Television go so far as to even say that they are against ANYONE that says that The Church will have to go through the Great Tribulation. For when I hear A TOTALLY UNBILBLICAL REMARK like that spoken -- all I can think of is – “Does that include JESUS???!!! Because JESUS says in Matthew Chapter 24 that His “Elect” and CHOSEN SEED who are alive at the time of His 2nd Coming will for sure be going through this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
And now that it is pretty obvious that Christ has LOOSED Satan and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS to fight this Final Spiritual Battle – aren’t we seeing daily how Satan and his Army of DEMONS have DECEIVED THE NATIONS to join them in BEING AT WAR with Christ and those of us in Christ’s Christian Army???!!! And doesn’t Christ’s True Eschatology prophesy that this Final Spiritual Battle between the Kingdom of Satan and the Kingdom of Christ must occur before His 2nd Coming to RAPTURE us “Elect” on the LAST DAY???!!! HONESTLY – you would think that this saying would apply today which says: “When a man (or a woman!!!) who is HONESTLY MISTAKEN hears THE TRUTH – he (or she!!!) will either quit being mistaken or CEASE TO BE HONEST!!!”
And from what I can tell – a whole lot of Christendom has CEASED TO BE HONEST about “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!! For not only have they NOT quit being mistaken about the Events prophesied for these End-Times -- but they REFUSE to take back their LIES and admit that Christ’s Eschatology was right all along!!! Instead they just dig in their heels and keep on teaching THE LIE that The Church will NOT be in The Great Tribulation -- UNBELIEVABLE!!!
Of course the reason WHY Dispensationalists tell us that “The Church” is NOT IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION -- is because they believe that Christ has 2 Bodies of people that He is working with to bring about His Plan of Salvation which include: 1) The New Testament Church – and 2) The Nation of Israel. And they believe that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is just for THE JEWS and won’t be fulfilled until AFTER the Pre-Tribulation RAPTURE of the Church when THEN the 7 years of Tribulation will begin with the signing of a Peace Agreement between “THE ANTICHRIST” and THE JEWS.
Never mind that “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology EXPLICITLY TEACHES that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy speaks of Christ as “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME to “finish transgression -- put an end to sin -- atone for wickedness -- bring in everlasting righteousness -- seal up vision and prophecy to those who REJECTED His Gospel -- and anoint the Most Holy” – for ALL of Daniel’s people which after the Cross included a REMNANT of Gentiles from every race and Nation on Earth!!!
Aren’t Dispensationalists misrepresenting Christ’s True Eschatology by their painting a horrific picture of over half of the 7.8 BILLION people on the Earth dying from Christ pouring out the LAST 7 PLAGUES so as to SCARE Christians into believing their False Eschatology that “The Church” will be Raptured in a Pre-Trib Rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins???!!! I mean – think about it -- who wouldn’t want to “GET OUT OF DODGE” if they thought the Dispensational Pre-Millennialism which Hal Lindsey’s Book “The Late Great Planet Earth” and Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” series was based upon was THE TRUTH???!!! And as far as I can tell all they have to back up their False Eschatology that The Church will NOT have to go into the Great Tribulation – is to say that Christ did NOT appoint those of who they call part of “The Church Age” to His WRATH which they say is THE GREAT TRIBULATION!!! REALLY???!!!
While There is NO EVIDENCE of a Pre-Trib Rapture in the Bible
There is However Ample Evidence That EVERYONE on Earth Will Be in This Prophesied Time of Great Tribulation Today!!!
HONESTLY -- there is not one Scripture anywhere in the Bible that I have read in which Christ EXPLICITLY prophesies that He will RAPTURE His “Elect” BEFORE the Great Tribulation in a Pre-Trib Rapture!!! And that’s because there is NO FUTURE 7 years of TRIBULATION based on Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy which has been in the process of being fulfilled by Christ confirming His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us in His Book of Life which Daniel 9 :27 prophesied since His Ascension. For Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy covers the whole time of the Great Commission of the Church that has now lasted over 2000 years of this Gospel Era. And that is just what Daniel’s last 4 visions prophesy recorded in the Book of Daniel in Chapters 7-12 -- and also what John’s 7 visions prophesy in the awesome Book of Revelation!!!
In other words – the infamous 70th Week of Daniel is NOT A LITERAL 7 years that the New Covenant is confirmed by Christ in the Future and just for THE JEWS – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! For according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – this infamous 70th Week covers the whole New Covenant period from the Cross when Christ inaugurated His restored Millennial Kingdom until His 2nd Coming. And during this Gospel Era Christ has been in the process of confirming His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us saved souls that He had chosen to save before the foundation of the world. And now that He has saved everyone – we are waiting for the CONSUMMATION of His Kingdom on the LAST DAY!!!
And that’s WHY I Pray that in the remainder of this Commentary that I can speak according to Christ’s Word to prove that NO WHERE in Scripture does Christ say that He will Rapture The Church BEFORE the Great Tribulation begins – ON THE CONTRARY -- He says just the OPPOSITE!!! For we read He EXPLICITLY Prophesies that His True Eternal Universal Church will not be taken out of the world until THE END OF THE WORLD
on the LAST DAY.
In other words – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that THE RAPTURE will happen on “The Last day” at the sound of “The Last Trumpet.” And the idea of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture and an Earthly reign of Christ for a 1000 years in the Future AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture with THE JEWS reigning along with Him as His True Chosen People -- is ALL built upon an unsound foundation which will not stand the test of Scripture. And I for sure do NOT want to be a 21st Century Hananiah teaching THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST LIES about these End-Times concerning the Great Tribulation. For clearly -- Christ prophesied that EVERYONE in the Whole World would be IN THIS GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
And that is WHY in this Commentary I PRAY that I can offer an overwhelming amount of evidence in Scripture that demands a verdict to back up THE TRUTH from Christ Himself that a Pre-Trib Rapture is NOT THE TRUTH -- and that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is NOT yet Future and meant only for THE JEWS!!! For those are LIES from Man’s False Eschatology. And that is also WHY I Pray that you will take the time to read what Christ’s True Eschatology says about THE RAPTURE below and then compare Man’s Eschatology in your favorite Prophecy Book with Christ’s Eschatology and see if they match!!!
Christ Did NOT Go To The Cross To Save Us “Elect” From This Great Tribulation
That We Are OBVIOUSLY IN NOW!!!
CLEARLY – regardless of Man’s False Eschatology teaching that the Pre-Trib Rapture takes place BEFORE the Great Tribulation because Christ did NOT appoint THE CHURCH to go through HIS WRATH which Dispensationalists say is THE GREAT TRIBULATION – Christ would be contradicting His own Words if that were TRUE!!! For Christ prophesied that those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are of HIS SEED and are His “Elect” that were still alive before His 2nd Coming would be going through a time of Great Tribulation when He LOOSED SATAN and his 200 MILLION DEMONS to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that must occur BEFORE THE LAST DAY’S RAPTURE!!! And that’s WHY it just can’t be reiterated enough that Christ went to the Cross to save us who were of HIS SEED from our SINS – NOT the Great Tribulation!!!
I mean – think about it – doesn’t Christ’s True Gospel prophesy that Christ went to the CROSS so that we who were of HIS SEED would NOT be thrown into HELL on the LAST DAY of this Human Race for unforgiven sin???!!! And doesn’t that mean that He went to the Cross to save us from our SINS – NOT from a time of Great Tribulation that He HIMSELF prophesied we would be going through if we were still alive on Earth at His 2nd Coming???!!! – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
The phrase “Great Tribulation” is used to denote a period of time that is prophesied in the Bible which will occur near the End of the World when Satan is LOOSED to RULE THE WHOLE WORLD and when the love of God will have grown so cold and the APOSTASY of God’s own people will have gotten so great that that the tribulation in this period of time for those of us of THE SEED OF CHRIST will be GREATER than it has ever been in History. But it just can’t be reiterated enough that tribulation itself is very normal for God’s people all throughout Human History.
And it was even GREATER at sometimes for Christ’s people than at other times because of the SINNING of Satan’s unsaved SEED – REALLY!!! Unless you don’t think that the Disciples of Christ didn’t go through GREAT TRIBULATION witnessing the crucifixion and the Passion of Christ because of the evil deeds of unsaved men???!!! When clearly -- it’s just THE TRUTH that from the very beginning of time beginning in Noah’s Day the tribulation for God’s people was GREAT because of the sinfulness and the LAWLESSNESS of the people who were NOT God’s “Chosen Elect” as Noah was. And that is WHY Christ JUDGED the inhabitants of the Earth at the time of Noah with a “Great Flood” and in Lot’s Day by raining down FIRE to destroy the Cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. For there was GREAT WICKEDNESS at those times in History which just FORESHADOW the WORLDWIDE JUDGMENT of this sin-cursed World with this time now of Great Tribulation!!! For clearly – Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that there is ONE FINAL JUDGMENT left for the SINFULNESS and LAWLESSNESS of Mankind which is TODAY’S LOOSING OF SATAN!!!
And because the “Great Flood” FORESADOWS this time of Judgment – Christ wanted us who were of HIS SEED to understand that Man’s sinning and LAWLESSNESS would result in this time of GREAT TRIBULATION which is WHY He painted a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the Days of Noah and Lot which would end in the DESTRUCTION of Satan’s people. And it's also WHY the Antediluvians of Noah’s Day resemble the 21st Century Antediluvians of TODAY -- because up until that time in Human History there wasn’t even rain on the Earth -- and certainly that meant no flooding in the days of Noah BEFORE the Great Flood!!! And likewise -- that is how the word “GREAT” is used to describe this period of Great Tribulation when Satan has AGAIN been LOOSED like he was LOOSE at the time of the Great Flood. And just like in Noah’s Day the prophecy of Christ parting the VERY HEAVENS to deliver us “Elect” has NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE in History either which is WHY the Antediluvians of TODAY are scoffing at the prospect of a RAPTURE and DELIVERANCE from the coming Judgment just like
the Antediluvians were in Noah’s Day!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And because Satan was LOOSE at the time of the Great Flood -- the condition of the Human Race in Noah’s Day FORESHADOWED what we see happening TODAY at this time of Judgment when Satan is inspiring the tremendous sinning and immorality of unsaved Mankind when we read what a World that has Satan LOOSED upon it can be like when Christ prophesied through Moses’ writing of Genesis for Him when we read: “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was GREAT in the Earth, and that EVERY intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5)
And what Christ wanted to convey in prophesying that His 2nd Coming would be just like in the Days of Noah and Lot – was that WHEN He takes His Restraint off of Satan and LOOSES him to fight this Final Spiritual Battle which He has obviously done TODAY – it will AGAIN cause a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for us “Elect” just like Noah and Lot were experiencing at those times of previous JUDGMENTS!!! I mean -- aren’t we NOW seeing TODAY much more iniquity abounding and much more spiritual persecution of anyone holding faithfully to the truth of Scripture which proves that SATAN HAS NOW BEEN LOOSED???!!! And that is WHY we Christians are experiencing GREATER Tribulation in the world than ever before. But HONESTLY -- NOWHERE does Christ say that we born-again Christians will NOT go through it!!! ON THE CONTRARY -- those of us in the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ are the very ones who are being persecuted for the cause of Christ at this time!!!
For it just can’t be reiterated enough that Christ explicitly prophesied that we would have tribulation in this world having to co-exist with SATAN AND HIS SEED – and that before the END OF THE WORLD the Tribulation would become GREATER than ever before when Christ LOOSED SATAN to fight this Final Spiritual Battle. In other words -- Christ promised us Peace with Him – but WAR and enmity with the unsaved world led by Satan until the very LAST DAY!!!
And There is Plenty of Evidence That Demands a Verdict That Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy
is NOT Future But is Broken into 2 Halves --
And That We are Today Living in the 2nd Half!!!
It needs to be understood TODAY more than ever before since Man’s False Eschatology teaches RELENTLESSLY that Daniel’s 70th Week is yet FUTURE and was only prophesied for THE JEWS of the Nation of Israel – that Man’s Eschatology is just NOT TRUE!!! That “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology prophesies that the Covenant in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy that was strengthened and confirmed by “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME and was JESUS CHRIST – is NOT about One Particular Man of the near Future that will be REVEALED after the Rapture and in the Middle of the 7 years which begins the Great Tribulation when “THE ANTICHRIST” breaks the Covenant of Peace with THE JEWS – HARDLY!!! For CLEARLY -- Christ’s 1st Coming recorded in Daniel 9:27 and also in Hebrews 9:16-17 -- FULFILLED the New Covenant of Grace in His shed Blood by His dying on the Cross which was the Covenant made with “the many” in Daniel 9:27. And that also FULFILLED the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy.
HONESTLY – if Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy was yet Future as Dispensationalists teach relentlessly that it is – then NO ONE has been saved yet – REALLY!!! Since strengthening a New Covenant of Grace is what Christ came to do. And all rhetoric aside – “THE ANTICHRIST” never strengthens a Covenantanywhere in the Bible – at least NOT according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology. For the ONLY ONE who the Bible says confirmed any Covenant is “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME recorded in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And that Covenant was the New Covenant made strong in Christ’s shed Blood which again is the Covenant in Daniel 9:27!!! SATAN didn’t choose those of his Kingdom – he inherited those who Christ chose NOT to save – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And make no mistake Daniel’s people are also Christ’s SEED who He prophesied through Daniel that He would come as “the Messiah the Prince” who would save us from SATAN – SIN – AND THE 2nd DEATH which is being thrown into HELL for unforgiven SINS. And what is ESSENTIAL that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST need to understand living so close to Christ’s 2nd Coming -- is that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is broken into 2 Halves. And that CLEARLY this infamous Prophecy is NOT FUTURE and is NOT just for THE JEWS!!! For there is plenty of evidence that demands a verdict that we are now living in the 2nd and final Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy that starts near the end of the world when Christ has saved everyone in His Book of Life and Satan is prophesied to be LOOSED to lead the FINAL REBELLION and to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that is obviously going on all around the Globe TODAY!!!
I know that I have covered the topic of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy many times before in numerous Commentaries – but this is evidence that demands a verdict that needs to be taught to show that the Pre-Trib Rapture is just NOT going to take place!!! For to understand “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – one needs to understand that The New Covenant Week -- which is the 70th Week of Daniel that was made strong by Christ’s death on the Cross -- is divided into 2 Spiritual periods. And both of those 2 Spiritual periods are spoken of in CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE as lasting “a time, times and a half of time.” The first Half week starts at the Cross as Christ confirms or makes strong the New Covenant of GRACE with “the many” of us that He chose to
save by His shed Blood.
And just to reiterate because Man’s Eschatology teaches that Daniel’s 70th Week is yet Future – THE TRUTH according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – is that the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week ENDS when Salvation is finished by Christ having strengthened and confirmed His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” that He Himself choice to save out of this World even before the foundation of the World. And the 2nd Half begins when Satan is LOOSED to “silence and kill” the True Eternal Universal Witnessing Church of Christ which is happening NOW when so many believe that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is yet Future!!!
And the evidence in Scripture to prove that Daniel’s 70th Week is NOT FUTURE and just for THE JEWS – is that the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week that was prophesied would last a CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1,260 days or 3 ½ years which is spoken of as “a time, times, and a half of time” -- has ALREADY been fulfilled – for it represents the WHOLE over 2000 years now of Church Outreach. And it is also the time that Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 that the 2 Witnesses -- which represent Christ’s True Eternal Universal Church on Earth – have been given the power to prophesy until our testimony is finished when the Gospel has been taken to every Nation on Earth. And clearly – we are living in the time with our advances in telecommunications that EVERY NATION on Earth has NOW been evangelized. And John saw that WHEN this time had come -- then our testimony of the Gospel Truth of the Kingdom of Heaven would be “killed and silenced” by SATAN after he is LOOSED to fight this Final Spiritual Battle as John saw in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11.
Both Daniel and John’s Visions REVEAL That Satan is “THE ANTICHRIST” That is
“The Abomination of Desolation” That Christ Prophesied
Would Signal This Great Tribulation!!!
Here’s where we living TODAY need to especially take notice of both Daniel and John’s prophecy of “THE ANTICHRIST.” For the 42 months or the 3 ½ years in which “THE ANTICHRIST” is REVEALED – is also spoken as “a time, times, and a half of time” in both Daniel and John’s visions. In other words we read that the time of “THE BEAST” being bound = 1,260 days which = 42 months which also = 3 ½ years -- all of which are CRYPTIC NUMBERS spoken of in Daniel’s vision recorded in Daniel 7:25 and in John’s 3rd vision recorded in Revelation 11:2-3 -- which is also the time of Church Outreach. And when the testimony of the New Covenant Church is finished -- then John saw that Christ’s “Beloved Holy City” -- which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” here on Earth where we who are saved by Christ exist in our saved soul existence -- would be trampled underfoot as he saw in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 and also in his 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20. AND WE ARE THERE TODAY at that point of time in Human History!!!
That’s WHY it’s important to understand that both Daniel and John were shown in their visions by Christ that Daniel’s 70th Week was broken into 2 Halves with one Half flowing right into the other. And it’s also WHY it doesn’t take too much study to understand that when the 1st Half ENDS – that THEN the 2nd Half BEGINS which if you take the time to read further you will see that Scripture prophesies that we are living in the 2nd Half RIGHT NOW!!! For both Daniel and John saw that “THE BEAST” who is also called “THE ANTICHRIST” -- is SATAN -- NOT One Particular Man of the Future!!! And this TRUTH was also confirmed by what Christ had Paul prophesy about SATAN being “THE ANTICHRIST” who will be REVEALED at “the proper time” which is THE GREAT TRIBULATION as the one ruling the WHOLE WORLD.
In other words – Paul prophesied that SATAN as “THE SUPREME ANTICHRIST” will lead an ARMY OF LAWLESS MEN AND WOMEN who are ALSO ANTI-CHRIST against those of us who are PRO-CHRIST which will cause a time of Great Tribulation for us who remain faithful to Christ and His Word. And a Pre-Trib Rapture is just NOT what Daniel and John and Paul prophesied from Christ – but that SATAN would be persecuting us who are of the SEED OF CHRIST and would be prevailing against us and that we would be “martyred” just for being Christians!!! And while Dispensationalists teach that the martyrdom” that takes place in the Great Tribulation is a result of Mankind NOT taking “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” or the infamous number of 666 – “martyrdom” in Christ’s Economy means “dying to SELF to live for Christ and His Cause”!!!
And we read that every Christian is truly a “martyr” today – for SATAN and those of his SEED in his Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” are AT WAR WITH US!!! And we don’t have to be beheaded for NOT taking “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – for John saw that every SON OF PERDITION who was of SATAN SEED had ALREADY received an invisible mark and number that Christ Himself wrote on those who belong to Satan!!! And he also saw those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST picking up our cross and standing with Christ in His DIVINE PLAN of DEFEATING SATAN and those in League with him in this Final Spiritual Battle which John describes with these words -- WHICH PROVE that we who belong to Christ are IN this time of GREAT TRIBULATION fighting this Final Spiritual Battle NOW -- when John prophesied:
“He (meaning SATAN!!!) shall speak pompous words against the Most High (and) shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and laws. (and of course Satan does this through the False Prophets in League with him!!!) Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and a half a time.” (Daniel 7:25) And in John’s vision we read the same prophecy: “But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do NOT measure it, for it has been given to the (unsaved) Gentiles. And they shall tread the Holy City underfoot for forty-two months (42 months). And I will give power to my two witnesses and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty day, (1,260 days) clothed in sackcloth.” (Rev. 11:2-3)
And here’s what is so very important to understand from Christ’s CRYPTIC LANGUAGE of Daniel’s timeframe of the 70th Week Prophecy -- the 42 months and the 1,260 days are NOT synonymous periods -- AND HERE’S WHY!!! The 1,260 days has one significance – while the 42 months has another. In other words – while they both add up to 3 ½ years – they clearly represent two separate time periods which are the 1st and 2nd Halves of this Spiritual New Covenant Week that Christ REVEALED to Daniel is the 70th Week. And CLEARLY -- that is WHY they are connected by both being illustrated as “a time, times and a half of time” -- while at the same time being different Periods of time to illustrate that there are 2 Halves of
Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy!!!
And it needs to be stated – that the “forty-two months” is spiritually 3 ½ years corresponding to the LAST HALF of the final week prophesied in the 70th Week of Daniel recorded in Daniel Chapter 9. And it takes place when the overspreading of “abomination” leaves the unfaithful desolate in the Harlot Church as John saw. In other words -- Christ REVEALED to Daniel that “THE BEAST” who is SATAN will be ruling the WHOLE WORLD and will MAKE WAR against the saints and overcome us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which is what Christ calls “The Abomination of Desolation” that we “Elect” would see that would signal that we were IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION!!! And Christ REVEALED this TRUTH not only to Daniel but to John in his visions as well as to Paul who prophesied that there would be a MULTITUDE of “LAWLESS MEN AND WOMEN” in League with Satan in this time of Great Tribulation who would be fighting against Christ and those of us in Christ’s Kingdom. That “THE BEAST” is LOOSED from “the Bottomless Pit” who obviously is SATAN to fight this Final Spiritual Battle. And HONESTLY -- what mere Man can be bound in HELL for a CRYPTIC LENGTH of a 1000 years during the Gospel Era and THEN be LOOSED from HELL to fight today’s Final Spiritual Battle???!!!
And along with Satan John also saw 200 MILLION DEMONS LOOSED to help him DECEIVE THE NATIONS!!! In other words – this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE that is raging around the Globe today is the END of the SPIRITUAL WARFARE that has been going on since the Garden of Eden between those in the Kingdom of Satan and those of us in The Kingdom of Christ. And the mission of the False Prophets in the Kingdom of Satan which Satan has been able to DECEIVE in the increased power that he now has after being LOOSED – is to convince those in the Harlot Church to join forces with him in neutralizing
“The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!!
And now so much of Christendom is unknowingly MAKING WAR with the 2 Witnesses which represent the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ. And this Final Spiritual Battle that is now taking place in the 2nd Half of the 70th Week of Daniel -- is recorded in John’s 4th vision in Revelation 13 when we read that Satan is LOOSED to MAKE WAR and overcome those of us in The True Eternal Universal Church of Christ – NOT to be confused with those in the External Global Harlot Church whose False Prophets John saw were in League with Satan when we read:
“And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed.” (which proves this is SATAN because in Genesis 3:15 we read the prophecy of Christ bruising Satan’s head which was fulfilled at Christ’s 1st Coming at the cross. And after this -- his deadly head wound was healed -- meaning Satan had to be LOOSED for a short period as we read in Revelation 13:3 and 20:3 which happens at the end of the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy!!!)
“And all the world marveled and followed THE BEAST. (which refers to the 2/3 Remnant of the World who are the False Prophets that belong to Satan and who Christ chose NOT TO SAVE!!!) So they worshiped the Dragon who gave authority to (those in) THE BEAST (SYSTEM of Satan’s oppressive Governments that he is ruling over in the United Nations!!!); and they worshiped THE BEAST, saying, “Who is like THE BEAST? Who is able to make war with him?” And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. (42 months) Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in Heaven. It was granted to him to MAKE WAR with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the Earth will worship him, whose names have NOT been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (CLEARLY – this is a prophecy of SATAN who is NOW “THE ANTICHRIST”!!!) (Rev. 13:3-8)
Christ Has Brought The Great Tribulation Upon This World
Because It Needs to Be Seen Especially By Those of Us “Elect” That Judgment is Well Deserved!!!
Revelation Chapter 11 and Revelation Chapter 13 are the same CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the assault upon the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ by the Kingdom of Satan (which includes “the BEAST SYSTEM” of not only the United Nations but also the External Global now APOSTATE Harlot Church!!!) and how the Holy City is trampled underfoot by those under Satan’s rule during the LAST DAYS of
Satan’s Final 4th Kingdom!!!
And we cannot help but notice that Christ’s True Eschatology continually uses the language that it was “GIVEN” unto them that they can MAKE WAR with Christ and were BLINDED by Satan to do so. For we read in Revelation Chapter 13 that power was “GIVEN” to him (referring to SATAN!!) to continue forty two months. (42 months) And Revelation Chapter 11says the court was “GIVEN” to the (unsaved) Gentiles and they would tread the Holy City down forty-two months. (42 months) And then in Revelation 17:17 – Christ is prophesying about this same time today of WORLDWIDE JUDGMENT on the unfaithful Harlot Church when it says that GOD put it into their hearts to fulfill His will and to agree and “GIVE” their Kingdom to “THE BEAST” until God’s Word is fulfilled. And when I read those words – I can’t help but think of Pope Francis signing the 2030 Agenda on September 25, 2015 which set in motion the “Great Reset” and was later adopted by the Global Elites of 193 Nations of the U.N.
You see -- it is God who is bringing this Judgment upon the unfaithful Church just like He did in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day for their Apostasy and unfaithfulness. He takes full responsibility for doing this. Just as we read in 2nd Thessalonians 2:10-11. In other words – CHRIST HIMSELF is the one who has sent this Evil Spirit of ANTICHRIST that is spreading around the Globe like Wildfire today now that Christ has taken His restraint off of Satan and LOOSED him to DECEIVE THE NATIONS and those in his Kingdom of “Babylon the Great.”
And it’s very obvious that the External Global Harlot Church that John describes in his 7 visions in the Book of Revelation is part of this VAST ARMY that have now “GIVEN” their power to Satan because they have been DECEIVED by him that “the Great Reset” is a good thing!!! When what it is – is MAN AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD and those of us who are standing up for His True Gospel in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. CLEARLY – it is Christ Himself who is bringing this Judgment just as He has warned the Church He would do if they did not repent and remember from where they had fallen. This should not be something which is unexpected. For this 42 months of Satan prospering is also spoken of as time, times, and half of time” (1+2+1/2 or 3 1/2) as we again read in Daniel’s vision: “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, (and) shall persecute the Saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law(s). Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.” (Daniel 7:25)
This is the forty-two months which is Spiritually three and one half years corresponding to the LAST HALF of the final week prophesied in the 70 Weeks of Daniel Chapter 9. It is when the overspreading of ABOMINATION leaves the unfaithful desolate because of their “falling away” from the faith.
THINK ABOUT IT – the 1st Half or 3 ½ years of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is the time of Church outreach when Christ began His Evangelization Program. And the 2nd Half or 3 ½ years or “42 months” speaks of the time after the true testimony in the Church is shattered by “THE BEAST” who is SATAN that has NOW BEEN LOOSED to DECEIVE THE NATIONS and to fight this Final Spiritual Battle as “THE ANTICHRIST” and “the little horn” and “the 8th King” of this Final 4th Kingdom of Satan. And make no mistake -- all of this is REVEALED to Daniel in the Statue of Satan in King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream and THEN confirmed in John’s 7 visions!!!
And that’s WHY Zechariah 13:8-9 has to be hands down one of the MOST IMPORTANT Prophecies EVER GIVEN – for It REVEALS that there are 2 Spiritual Kingdomsand that Christ’s Kingdom will be Raptured and Satan’s Kingdom will be “Left Behind” on the LAST DAY for the Final Judgment!!! CLEARLY -- what we know for certain from what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah -- is that there are 2 SPIRITUAL KINGDOMS of this World. And those 2 Kingdoms were created by Christ’s choosing who He had decided would be saved and who would NOT BE SAVED. And as Christ REVEALED to Zechariah only a remnant 1/3 of this World’s population was Elected by Christ to be saved before the foundation of the World.
In other words – Satan did NOT CHOOSE who would be in his Kingdom – CHRIST DID!!! For when He chose His 1/3 Remnant from this World’s population – He REVEALED to Zechariah -- and also to Ezekiel in the infamous “Gog Oracle” of Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39 -- that The Conscription of “Gog” who is SATAN – REVEALED to us in Ezekiel 38:1-9 -- was meant to convey the “compulsory enrollment” of Satan’s Army called by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Magog.” And clearly – that Army includes ALL of the antichrists and SONS OF PERDITION which make up of the 2/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He never chose to save out of this Human Race recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9. CLEARLY – Satan did NOT choose this Army of “Magog” – he inherited those that Christ chose NOT to save who became part of his Kingdom of the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” in which they have each existed on this Earth in their unsaved soul existence from birth to death since the beginning of time.
And CLEARLY – the Bible is the written record of the warfare that has gone on between these 2 Kingdoms which John saw in his 6th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 18 would come to an END when Christ would BRING BABYLON DOWN TO RUINS during this Final Spiritual Battle that is taking place TODAY!!! And the 2/3 Remnant of this World that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He chose NOT to save are those Christ is JUDGING NOW by the CLEANSING OF HIS TEMPLE!!! While the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah would be saved will be RAPTURED on the LAST DAY -- which AGAIN is the End of the World leaving no time for an in-between Age of a Future 1000 year Reign of Christ after a Pre-Trib Rapture!!!
There is NO Pre-Mid-or Post Tribulation According to Christ’s True Eschatology
It just can’t be reiterated enough that there is an ASTOUNDING LACK OF AGREEMENT between Dispensational Pre-Millennialists who can’t even seem to agree among themselves what their Rapture Eschatology teaches. And there’s a simple reason for that – it’s the Doctrine of MAN which again was started in the 1800’s. And it was popularized by John Nelson Darby who came up with his Pre-Trib Rapture idea and his 2-phases of the 2nd Coming of Christ in the late 1850’s.
This 2-phases of the 2ndComing of Christ was a theory that he invented to validate his “Secret Rapture Theory.” And since Darby -- this popular Eschatology has become an ENTIRE SYSTEM of Eschatology that has been embellished along the way by many “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts who have added their own spin on it with each new Book they write.
But HONESTLY – when one studies “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s TRUE ESCHATOLOGY which is Amillennialism -- there is NO Pre--Mid--or Post Tribulation because the
True Christianity that Christ taught teaches that He has ALREADY delivered Daniel’s People which the 70th Week Prophecy is written about. For Daniel’s People are ALL of the “saved Jews of the Spirit” of the ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which now includes a REMNANT of people after the Cross from every Nation and Race on Earth that Christ Himself chose to save even before the foundation of the World. And because we have ALREADY been delivered from SATAN – SIN – and the SECOND DEATH -- all that is left to accomplish after Christ’s 1st Great Work of the Salvation of the SOULS of His “Elect” -- is His 2nd Great Work of the 2nd Resurrection of the Bodies of our saved souls.
And that 2nd Great Work of Christ includes the CONSUMMATION – the CULMINATION – and the bringing to COMPLETION Christ already inaugurated Millennial Kingdom that began with the 1st Resurrection of our saved souls at the Resurrection of Christ after His dying for our sins on the Cross -- and has been going on for the whole Gospel Era represented by the CRYPTIC NUMBER of 1000 years in Revelation Chapter 20 which fulfills Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. This 2nd Great Work of Christ will happen on the LAST DAY of this Human Race when He will Return to give all of us TRUE JEWS of the Spirit a resurrected Body like His so that we can step into the New Heavens and the New Earth with Him at THE RAPTURE.
For Christ’s resurrection from the dead is what made the Millennial Kingdom of Christ a REALITY – and His 2nd Coming is what will CONSUMMATE it and fulfill the last part of the 2nd Half of Daniel 9:27 that is taking place TODAY. And to believe that we living today in this 21st Century are NOT now living at the very END of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is to believe A LIE!!!
When the 7th TRUMPET is sounded soon by Christ – the awesome “Day of the Lord” will take place when Satan’s rule of this World will END forever because John saw this World being destroyed by Fire at the pouring out of the 7th Plague which is also the LAST 3rd WOE. In other words – John did NOT prophesy a Future 1000 year reign of Christ after the 1st 2 WOES which are the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgment of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS have been poured out – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! – John prophesied that it would be THE END OF THE WORLD and the End of this Present Age of Humanity!!! And the reason WHY I entitled my July 2nd Commentary: “The Only Solution to a World That is Clearly Growing More Evil With Each Passing Day Now Ruled by SATAN -- Is for Christ to Put an END TO SATAN’S RULE” – is because this world is only going to get WORSE and EXPONENTIALLY MORE EVIL with Satan ruling it!!!
And those who say we are NOT in the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy – are simply AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD about His 2ndComing just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees were AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD about His 1st Coming. And if they think they are NOT – then I would encourage them to give the Scriptures to back it up!!! Or as Isaiah would say -- if those who are teaching the False Eschatology that Christ has NOT inaugurated His Millennial Kingdom yet and has NOT fulfilled Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy which they teach is yet Future – and can NOT produce Scripture to back up their claims -- then “there is NO LIGHT in them!!!
