“The Mark of the Beast” is NOT a LITERAL PHYSICAL MARK on The Flesh of Man
But is “The Mark of the Flesh” Which REVEALS That One is Ruled By
Their Sinful Fleshly Nature
September 12, 2021
If you read my last Commentary on “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – I pray that you were able to understand from Christ’s Word that what He was trying to convey with this infamous Mark-- is that it illustrates that the reprobate mind of unsaved mankind is ruled by their sinful fleshly nature which is at WAR with Him and His Word and those of us in the Kingdom of Christ who are standing up for His Words of TRUTH. That “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” is NOT a physical mark put there by MAN – but is the invisible mark on unsaved Mankind as John saw in his 7 visions put there by Christ to show Satan’s ownership of those in rebellion against Him when we read:
“The mind of THE FLESH is (at) ENMITY against God.” (James 4:4) And Paul prophesied much the same TRUTH when he wrote: “The mind governed by THE FLESH is hostile to God.” (Romans 8:7) And what Paul wrote next REVEALS that this “GOG AND MAGOG BATTLE” -- which is MAN AT WAR against Christ and His Word -- is a WAR that unsaved mankind will NEVER WIN when we read: “So then they that are in THE FLESH cannot please God.” (Romans 8:8)
And what needs to be understood more than anything in this time now of Great Tribulation -- is that there are 2 SEEDS of Mankind which represent the 2 Spiritual Kingdoms of this World that are AT WAR with each other in one Final Spiritual Battle BEFORE THE LAST’S DAY of this Human Race. And that this Final Spiritual Battle must take place before THE RAPTURE occurs according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology to fulfill prophecy!!!
According to Easton’s Bible Dictionary “Enmity” is a “deep-rooted hatred” that we know Christ put between those of Satan’s SEED and His SEED in the Garden of Eden. But because Christ commanded those of us who belong to Him to love our enemies and pray for those who HATE US – we are the ones suffering the most in this Great Tribulation while Satan’s SEED just HATE unabashedly with no remorse!!! But rest assured that anyone who persecutes and WARS against Christ and His “Elect” will feel remorse for all Eternity when they are thrown into “outer darkness” where Christ says all those who belong to Satan will be thrown on the LAST DAY!!!
But for now those of us who are of the SEED OF CHRIST have to co-exist with those who are of THE SEED OF SATAN. And what Christ wanted those of us who are of HIS SEED to understand -- is that the minds of those with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” remain in the flesh from birth to death being defiled and unforgiven of their SINS. And because of their reprobate minds they are of one spirit to give their hand in work for “THE BEAST’S KINGDOM” of “Babylon.” And that’s WHY Paul prophesied about the “LAWLESS MAN” who had the Spirit of Antichrist: “To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.” (Titus 1:15)
And like it or NOT – co-existing with Satan’s SEED is our lot during this prophesied time of Great Tribulation!!! But THANKFULLY the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel teaches that Christ chose to save a 1/3 Remnant of us in this sin-cursed Human Race by HIS GRACE even before creating it when we read: “There is therefore now No condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to THE FLESH, but according to THE SPIRIT. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:1-2) And John also wrote this verse which is one of my favorites: “Whoever has been BORN of God does NOT sin, for His SEED remains in him; and he CANNOT SIN, because he has been BORN OF GOD.” (clearly this verse implies that one is BORN as being either of THE SEED OF CHRIST or of THE SEED OF SATAN!!!) (1st John 3:9)
But one might rightfully ask – so how does one become born of THE SEED OF CHRIST???!!! And the answer of course is NOT through the FREE WILL CHOICE OF MAN – for Christ explicitly prophesied: “You did NOT choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit -- fruit that will last -- and so that whatever you ask in My name the Father will give you.” (and we know that Christ did the choosing before the foundation of the World!!!) (John 15:16)
And when we take into consideration the whole of Scripture -- we find that the term “the Evil One” is synonymous with the term “Antichrist” And that term is 1st and foremost given to SATAN in the Bible – but it also represents the False Christs -- or those who seek to take the place of Christ. For SATAN in his pride seeks to be worshipped as Christ and so do those of SATAN’S SEED who also seek to take the place of Christ by placing their OWN laws and their OWN beliefs and TRUTHS and traditions in place of Christ’s True Gospel
In other words – the Bible teaches that the spirit of Antichrist is Satan – and it is this Antichrist Spirit that is the great deceiver who works within men so that they serve Satan thinking they are serving God. And all those who have this spirit are called “Antichrists” by God. For they come in the power of Satan deceiving people by usurping the authority of Christ while saying: “Lord, Lord.” But clearly the Lord has NOT sent them when they teach a False Gospel which is what False Prophets do. And that makes them a substitute christ or an Anti-christ.
CLEARLY -- the fact that we will receive Christ’s Word as TRUTH is one of the evidences that we are TRULY SAVED!!! For Satan is such a MASTER AT DECEIVING that if one just looks at what the Bible teaches they will see that a LARGE part of the people of Israel DIED in the wilderness because of UNBELIEF – all the while PROFESSING GOD!!! And then we read that when Christ CAME as the fulfillment of the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy – the Esteemed Religious Jewish Leaders REJECTED Christ as “the Messiah the Prince” who had COME – all the while PROFESSING to be eagerly waiting and looking for “the Messiah” to come!!!
And at both times in History those who PROFESSED to be of God DIED IN UNBELIEF because their faith was a COUNTERFEIT FAITH – NOT the product of Christ working within them. In other words – it’s wasn’t belief unto OBEDIENCE to Christ and His Word or the desire to do God’s Will – but their desire to do their own Will in God’s Name. And there’s a BIG DIFFERENCE!!!
Christ’s Word REVEALS That Satan is “THE ANTICHRIST”
Even Though Many Choose to Believe That “THE ANTICHRIST”
is One Particular Man of the Future!!!
Make no mistake -- The spirit that works within “The MAN of LAWLESSNESS” or the disobedient -- is the Antichrist Spirit of Satan. And those with this Spirit of disobedience are those who Paul spoke of in 2ndThessalonians Chapter 2 that he called “The Man of Sin” or “LAWLESSNESS.” For disobedience is lawlessness and lawlessness is SIN. And lawlessness in God’s house is being revealed TODAY in those who have the Spirit of Antichrist when Christ prophesied that we who were of HIS SEED would see “The Abomination of Desolation” when Satan is LOOSED to cause Great Apostasy in this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION. And as JUDGMENT Christ had Paul prophesy that He will send those who REJECT His True Gospel a “strong delusion” so that “The Man of Sin” who rules in the Lord’s Temple as if he WERE GOD will be DAMNED -- and on the LAST DAY
will be left “desolate”!!!
And isn’t that just what we are seeing TODAY -- when so many Christians profess Christ’s Word to be TRUE – yet just as Paul prophesied their conscience is seared with a hot iron???!!! I mean – think about it – we are clearly living in the time when Paul prophesied: “That in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.” (1st Timothy 4:1-2) And HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS that there is an ARMY of HYPOCRITICAL LIARS today when so many Religious Leaders have so mishandled Christ’s True Gospel!!!And I don’t mean to be disrespectful – but Christ just DID NOT mean for Paul to prophesy that ONE PARTICULAR MAN had to be ruling the Whole World declaring that he was GOD ruling from a 3rd rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem BEFORE the Great Tribulation could begin!!! Otherwise – He would be contradicting His own Gospel which says from Genesis to Revelation that His supreme enemy is SATAN who he had Daniel and John call “THE BEAST” and “THE ANTICHRIST.”
What Christ had Paul prophesy -- was that unsaved Mankind IN PARTICULAR -- who are born of THE SEED of Satan --will have the Antichrist Spirit of Satan when Satan is LOOSED at the End of this Present Age. In other words -- what Paul was trying to say from Christ recorded in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 -- was that there will come a time of such GREAT APOSTASY that even Professed Christians will think nothing of denying – contradicting – distorting – and challenging the VERY WORDS OF CHRIST all the while professing to be God’s servants!!! AND WE ARE THERE!!!
For the Apostasy now at Christ’s 2nd Coming is CLEARLY FORESHADOWED by the Apostasy at the time of His 1st Coming when the Pharisees and the Sadducees were AT WAR with Christ and His Word when all the while they were professing to be God’s Servants. So the origin of “THE ANTICHRIST” is NOT SOLELY a present day phenomenon – HARDLY!!! For Christ REVEALED in the Garden of Eden that “THE ANTICHRIST” is SATAN himself who came even then as an Angel or messenger of Light deceiving the Human Race in first getting Adam and Eve to disobey Christ. But clearly -- the term “antichrist” was NEVER meant to refer to just ONE PARTICULAR MAN – but to unsaved MANKIND IN PARTICULAR under Satan’s mind control who have disobeyed Christ while often masquerading as ministers of righteousness.
And as I wrote in my last Commentary -- Satan didn’t choose those in his Army that both Ezekiel and John called by the name of “Magog”-- he inherited the 2/3 Remnant of this World that Christ chose NOT to save. And they became part of his Kingdom of the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” in which they have existed on this Earth in their unsaved soul existence from birth to death. And they are NOW TODAY fighting against Christ’s Kingdom as part of Satan’s Army in this Final Spiritual Battle that Christ prophesied that EVERYONE in the WHOLE WORLD would be involved in
right BEFORE His 2nd Coming!!!
And what needs to be understood – is that the most important point that Christ was trying to make to us in His Kingdom about “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” -- is not that it is a LITERAL PHYSICAL fleshly mark that ONE PARTICULAR MAN of the Future will force everyone to take after a Pre-Trib Rapture – HARDLY!!! What “The Rapture Truth” REVEALS IN CHRIST’S TRUE ESCHATOLOGY -- is that it is the invisible MARK OF THE FLESH of the UNSAVED 2/3 REMNANT that are Satan’s possession in his Kingdom of Babylon. And that the unsaved are those that Christ Himself has marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.”
HONESTLY -- it just can’t be reiterated enough living through this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION – that Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that those of SATAN’S SEED who are AT WAR with Christ and us in Christ’s Kingdom TODAY are the ones who this Final Judgment is aimed at who have “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” that John saw in his 7 visions that Christ had ALREADY invisibly written upon them!!! We can’t see this mark on Earth – but we know from Christ’s Word that it is CLEARLY meant to signify Satan’s ownership of those who are of THE SEED OF SATAN. While “The name” is meant to signify that they are part of Satan’s Spiritual family. And lastly “The number 666” is meant to signify that their lot in this life is with “THE BEAST.” And again SATAN is “THE BEAST” and the Spiritual Father of the family that they are part of which is called THE EVIL GENERATION that has been AT WAR with those of us in Christ’s Kingdom since the Garden of Eden.
In other words -- Christ’s Word REVEALS that SATAN is “THE ANTICHRIST” -- NOT ONE PARTICULAR MAN of the Future that will step up on the stage of Human History after the Pre-Trib Rapture of THE CHURCH as the ever-so-popular Eschatology of Man teaches. For although there are many Scriptures that speak about the action of Satan as “THE ANTICHRIST” -- there are only four verses in the entire Bible that expressly use the word “antichrist” which are: 1st John 2:18 – 1st John 2:22 – 1stJohn 4:3 -- and 2nd John 1:7. And in 1st John 2:18 John clearly debunks the theory of “THE ANTICHRIST” being ONE PARTICULAR MAN – but says that the Anti-Christ was present in his day. And what Christ was trying to convey through John prophesying that – was that it is the SPIRIT of SATAN that HAS BEEN present all throughout Human History in the disobedient minds and hearts of UNSAVED MANKIND and will continue to be present in the unsaved right up until the LAST DAY.
But what Christ ESPECIALLY wanted John to REVEAL in those 4 verses -- was that this ANTI-CHRIST SPIRIT will be REVEALED more than ever at the END OF THE WORLD now that Satan has been LOOSED when John prophesied from Christ that “THE ANTICHRIST” would come in the future. CLEARLY – John was just repeating what Christ Himself prophesied of False Christs coming in Matthew Chapter 24 to deceive MANY during the Great Tribulation. But because John wrote that there were ALREADY many antichrists in his day -- that’s WHY it's important to understand that John didn't deny the doctrine that antichrist would come to prominence in the future – but he simply was prophesying from Christ that even in the 1st Century that there were many antichrists – for they were the ones responsible for having Christ crucified!!!
That is WHY Paul was clearly NOT prophesying that ONE PARTICULAR MAN would be “THE ANTICHRIST” when he prophesied about “THE MAN OF SIN” and “LAWLESSNESS.” And neither was he prophesying that ONE PARTICULAR MAN would be “THE MAN OF GOD” when he wrote: “But you, O MAN OF GOD, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on Eternal Life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” (1st Tim. 6:11-12)
HONESTLY – it would be ABSURD to think that from this verse Paul was implying that there was only ONE PARTICULAR MAN who was “THE MAN OF GOD” who would come in the Future – yet that is what Dispensationalists do in their claiming that Paul was only speaking of ONE PARTICULAR MAN of the Future who will step up on the Stage of Human History AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture when he describes “THE MAN OF SIN”!!! What Christ’s Word teaches -- was that the term “antichrist” has no specific prophetic application to any particular human being whether living or dead -- but to all men who in the spirit of Satan practice lawlessness in the Church by buying LIES from SATAN who IS “THE ANTICHRIST” – and selling those LIES and Doctrines of Demons from Satan as THE GOSPEL TRUTH!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!
Anyone Substituting Their Own Words for the Words of Christ is
Worshipping the Image of “THE BEAST” who is SATAN!!!
Christ WARNED us who were of HIS SEED -- NOT to fall for what MANY FALSE PROPHETS who substitute their word for His Gospel Truth teach. For He prophesied that MANY will be deceived by the False Eschatology that these False Prophets bring. That’s WHY the personification of ageless rebellion and the spirit of Antichrist was NEVER MEANT to REVEAL just ONE PARTICULAR MAN such as the Pope – or men like Stalin or Hitler or a Future Roman who many say will rise up out of the Revived Roman Empire to become “THE ANTICHRIST” in the near Future – HARDLY!!! For according to Christ’s True Eschatology “THE ANTICHRIST” is not identifiable with ONE Nation – or ONE specific Church or institution or religion or just ONE PARTICULAR MAN. For Satan has never needed just ONE MAN to do his bidding – HARDLY!!! – for he has had a VIRTUAL ARMY of men down throughout the Ages who have shown up in all denominations and Religions to carry out every Evil Deed that he has commanded those who were of his SEED to do –
THINK ABOUT IT!!!
FORTUNATELY – Christ had Paul define who “The Man of LAWLESSNESS” is – that he is any person who in the SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST exalts himself to high places which is just what we see the Elites doing now in their “Great Reset” Plan wanting the POWER to rule the WHOLE WORLD along with SATAN. And the true teaching illustrated in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 is that “THE MAN OF SIN and LAWLESSNESS” is any man or woman declaring themselves to be GOD which is the sin of PRIDE. And we know that PRIDE was also the downfall of SATAN who Christ said IS “THE ANTICHRIST”!!!
And “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that as long as the Spirit of Satan struggles against Christ through his SEED – that “THE ANTICHRIST” who is Satan himself will be at work DECEIVING THE NATIONS until the very LAST DAY of this Human Race. And now at the very END of Human History Christ is allowing this Spirit of Satan which is ANTICHRIST to prosper and prevail during this time of GREAT TRIBULATION while He is CLEANSING HIS TEMPLE of all
False Prophets in League with Satan.
And CLEARLY -- Satan’s Modus Operandi has NOT CHANGED since the beginning of time – for he is still HELL BENT on Destroying the Kingdom of Christ and everything GOOD AND RIGHTEOUS which Christ’s Kingdom stands for. In other words -- Satan is still “the Destroyer” more than ever now that he is ruling the WHOLE WORLD and rules over the 200 MILLION DEMONS THAT CHRIST LOOSED along with Satan from the Bottomless Pit that John saw in his 3rd vision. For it is SATAN that was bound in the Bottomless Pit -- just like it was SATAN who was the Man in the Statue of King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream – NOT ONE PARTICULAR MAN of the Future -- but SATAN!!! And Satan’s primary weapon of choice is STILL DECEPTION!!!
And HONESTLY – that becomes obvious when I read countless times that Dispensationalists believe and teach that THE TIMING OF THE RAPTURE plays NO role in our Salvation. And all I can say in response is: “You’re kidding – right???!!!” Because believing THE TRUTH about the 2nd Coming of Christ seems like something only those who are saved believe???!!! But their response is usually a rehearsed list of prophetic events that they say MUST happen and won’t happen until after the Pre-Trib Rapture which they also teach happens BEFORE the Great Tribulation. But when I hear the list – it almost makes me wonder if they are reading the same Bible that I am!!!
And usually the events that Dispensationalists say must occur AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture for the Great Tribulation to even begin include:
1) That the identity of “THE ANTICHRIST” who they say will be ONE PARTICULAR MAN of the Future must be REVEALED – and that this EVIL ANTICHRIST is the 1st Rider of the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse and “the Prince” who will make a Covenant of Peace with the Nation of Israel in Daniel 9:27
2) That this “ANTICHRIST” will demand that everyone take his number of 666 which is “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – and that if anyone REFUSES to acknowledge that HE IS GOD as he rules from a rebuilt 3rd Temple in the LITERAL City of Jerusalem -- that they will be beheaded or won’t be able to buy and sell in Department stores at the very least
3) That The Battle of “Gog and Magog” in Ezekiel 38-39 must have taken place
4) That the LITERAL PHYSICAL location of “Babylon” on Earth must be REVEALED because it is where the LITERAL PHYSICAL MILITARY Battle of “Armageddon” will take place with the Nations of the World fighting over the Promised Land of Jerusalem
5) That the Revived Roman Empire with it’s 10 Kings must be in place -- for they will be ruling the World along with “THE ANTICHRIST” during the Great Tribulation
6) That there must be a “Beast System” of a One World Religion ALREADY set up
7) And LAST BUT NOT LEAST -- that Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy will finally be fulfilled for THE JEWS when ONE PARTICULAR MAN is REVEALED to be “THE ANTICHRIST” -- and that when he breaks the Peace Treaty of Daniel 9:27 made with the Nation of Israel – THEN the GREAT TRIBULATION will finally begin!!!
And all I can say again is “REALLY???!!! For that’s not what my Bible prophesies AT ALL!!!” And not to be disrespectful – but is that the Gospel that Christ sent His Disciples out to teach and that they ALL pretty much gave their lives to preserve as THE TRUTH???!!! For if it is – then I have been teaching the WRONG GOSPEL!!! Or is that what so much of Christendom has now been DECEIVED by Satan to believe IS THE TRUTH???!!!
Christ Taught Who The TRUE JEWS Are – Yet Dispensationalists Disagree!!!
Paul was definitely under divine inspiration when he wrote for Christ that not all Israel were part of the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved out of this Human Race!!! Yet Dispensationalists in our day of New Testament Enlightenment do NOT really comprehend what Christ was teaching through Paul -- for they pretty much REFUSE to believe Christ’s True Eschatology which teaches that AT NO TIME in Human History has the WHOLE NATION of Israel ever been saved. And while Dispensationalists often give lip service to the TRUTH that only a REMNANT have ever been saved -- in practice they effectively DENY – CONTRADICT – DISTORT and CHALLENGE this very important TRUTH of the True Gospel of Christ that claims: “they are not all Israel which are of Israel.” And that is because they fervently believe that ALL JEWS are
Christ’s True Chosen People!!!
THINK ABOUT IT – that’s WHY Dispensationalists teach that there has to be what they call a “Gap Theory.” For their Gospel teaches that after Christ has saved all those in THE CHURCH – that then He will Return to save ALL THE NATION OF ISRAEL EN-MASSE because they believe that ALL ISRAEL MUST BE SAVED!!! I realize that they teach that there ARE 2 Bodies of People in Christ’s Kingdom which they say are: 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church – but aren’t they DENYING that Christ broke down the Middle Wall that separated the Jews from the Gentiles at the Cross and united them into ONE BODY when they teach that???!!! I mean – didn’t Paul prophesy that the TRUE CAUSE of Christ coming to Earth was to reconcile both Jews and Gentiles together into ONE BODY when we read:
“Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself ONE new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them (referring to JEWS AND GENTILES!!!) both to God in ONE BODY through the Cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.” (Ephesians 2:15-16)
FORTUNATELY – Paul doesn’t stop by just declaring that “they are not all Israel which are of Israel.” For beside these verses in Ephesians -- Paul goes on to explain in the almost half of the New Testament WHY Christ prophesied that He had rejected all but a REMNANT of the whole Nation of Israel just as He has rejected a 2/3 REMNANT out of all the Nations of this World. And BEFORE you throw up your hands and scream “REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY” or that I’m an ANTI-SIMITE if you are reading this Commentary– ask yourself if Paul taught Replacement Theology or was an Anti-Semite???!!! HONESTLY – I am just being truthful to what Christ had Paul teach that His True Gospel proclaimed “ That they are NOT ALL Israel that are of the Nation of Israel”!!! And for sure Christ is NO RESPECTER of persons that He would somehow LOVE THE JEWS more than us Gentiles!!! He considers ALL of us “Elect” precious in His sight which is WHY He promised never to lose any of those that the Father had given to Him. And wouldn’t that also mean that none of us would ever be REPLACED either???!!! I’m just saying!!!
The whole Chapter of Roman’s 9 is devoted to explaining that most of the Jews of the Nation of Israel even though they were born of Jewish Descent were NOT “the saved Jews of the Spirit” that were part of the Spiritual Israel of God which is Christ’s true Holy Nation – but were part of “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” when Paul prophesied:
“But it is not that the word of God has taken no effect. For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, “In Isaac your SEED shall be called.” That is, those who are THE CHILDREN OF THE FLESH, (and rest assured Christ was talking about those who were still in their sins because He had NOT CHOSEN to save them!!!) these are NOT the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as THE SEED (of Christ!!!). . . . . As it is written, “Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.” (Romans 9:6-13)
CLEARLY – Christ was making AN EXPLICIT DISTINCTION between “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” – and “the saved Jews of the Spirit” in having Paul prophesy that there are 2 SEEDS. In other words – from the Garden of Eden until TODAY -- Christ has made it unambiguously clear that the identifying characteristic of the true Israel of God is NOT THE FLESH – but the Spirit. And that is WHY Christ had Paul prophesy that the Eternal Everlasting Covenant of God which is the New Covenant of Grace prophesied in Daniel 9:27 -- was NOT to the Israel after the flesh -- but was to the Spiritual Israel of God -- which is a Nation made up of all those who are born of THE TRUE SEED OF ISRAEL who is Christ.
And Christ’s True Gospel teaches that the very cause of Christ’s Coming to Earth as “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME recorded in Daniel 9:27 was to restore a REMNANT of the Nation of Israel to God and to bring the Gospel Truth that the Kingdom of Heaven HAD COME to a REMNANT of Gentiles by reconciling both Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And to teach that the 70th Week of Daniel is yet Future as Dispensationalists do – is to REJECT just as the Pharisees and the Sadducees and most of the Jews did -- that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” in Daniel 9:27
Paul CLEARLY taught as part of the Gospel TRUTH that Salvation is found in the Sovereign electing work of Christ -- NOT in any genealogical descent. And Dispensationalism which is really the same CHRIST REJECTING FLASE RELIGION OF JUDAISM that the Pharisees and the Sadducees taught in the 1st Century – still over looks the TRUTH that if Salvation were of descent -- then this statement of Christ through Paul would be A LIE – GOD FORBID!!! For Paul -- under the inspiration of Christ’s Holy Spirit taught that “the many” that the Eternal Covenant of GRACE was made with was NOT the Israel of the flesh -- but was the Israel of the Spirit.
In other words – Christ is the true Israel of God!!! And Paul knew this TRUTH and that is WHY he taught from the Lord that Judgment had come upon the Physical LITERAL Nation of Israel. For blindness in part had happened to them as we read in Romans 11:25 – which meant that a 2/3 Remnant of them were without God’s light of Salvation which caused most of them to remain in SPIRITUAL DARKNESS. For just as Christ REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 -- only a 1/3 REMNANT of JEWS OR GENTILES were EVER chosen be saved out of this Human Race. And that 1/3 Remnant
were saved at the Cross!!!
And what Dispensationalists REFUSE to accept as THE TRUTH – is that the Nation of Israel in the Middle East no longer represents Christ’s New Covenanted Kingdom people like the O.T. did before the Cross. For the O.T. Congregational representation of the Kingdom ended with the Judgment at the cross. And the N.T. Congregation of the Lord from the time of the Resurrection until TODAY is now represented by the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ on Earth that He chose before the foundation of the World which AGAIN is the only Holy Nation that Christ has EVER HAD made up of people from ALL RACES and Nations on Earth!!!
There is NO mention of An Evil Prince in Daniel 9:26
That Will Become The Future “ANTICHRIST”!!!
The veil that separates the Holy of HOLIEST which is access to God – was at the time of the Cross CLEARLY done away with and now could be entered by being IN CHRIST!!! In other words – the Holy Temple is no longer in a LITERAL City in the Middle East -- nor can be if it is rebuilt. For Christ is now the N.T. Temple. And from the time of the Cross until TODAY -- we who Christ has now saved can come directly to God through the veil which is His body or the N.T. Temple!!! And it is through that Holy Temple that we become Children of the Promise and NO LONGER “children of THE FLESH” as we read in Hebrews: “Having therefore, brethren boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus. By a new and Living way, which He hath consecrated for us through The Veil, that is to say, His flesh.”
That’s WHY it just can’t be reiterated enough that when “the Messiah the Prince” CAME -- He was anointed as we read in the 70thWeek of Daniel’s Prophecy. And that anointing of the Holy of HOLIEST signified that Jesus Christ was the anointed King of Kings and Lord of Lords which FULFILLED the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. For The Israel of God was not established by a Temple made with the hands of MAN -- or veils made of cloth -- but it was established and fulfilled in the body of Christ. And so the TRUE GOSPEL of Christ teaches that Christ Himself is the Holy Temple of the New Testament Era of this last 2000 years of Church Outreach – and His flesh is the true veil through which we can approach
the Holy of Holies.
And it is only being born of the Seed of Christ that truly made anyone the Israel of God!!! Being born the progeny of Jacob didn’t make anyone a true Israelite as we read recorded in Romans 9:6. For to be IN CHRIST is the only way to be IN THE NATION OF ISRAEL today
or at any time in Human History.
And it’s also WHY in Daniel 9:24 that ALL the things that were prophesied that “the Messiah the Prince” would accomplish were fulfilled for those of us who were of THE SEED OF CHRIST at the Cross. In other words -- it was determined by God that the transgression would be withheld or restrained for HIS HOLY NATION -- and that sin would be brought to an end or sealed up – that also reconciliation for iniquity would be made to bring in everlasting righteousness – and that there would be the sealing up of the vision and the prophets in the Nation of Israel for all those who rejected Christ’s True Gospel by their being BLINDED.
And finally -- there would be the anointing of the Most Holy who was CHRIST. And all of this was determined to happen in the 70 weeks which according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology covers the whole Gospel Era now of Church Outreach which has lasted for over 2,000 years and FULFILLED the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is the time that we are living in TODAY when we read in Daniel 9:26 that after the 62 weeks -- AFTER the time of the coming of “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME when Christ was “cut off” -- that this was CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE of God’s Judgement.
But what needs to be understood -- is that this prophecy of Daniel declares that “the Prince” who CAME was not “cut off” for Himself but was “cut off” or crucified for the sins of His People which FULIFLLED the JUDGMENT that would come upon us if our sins were not paid for by Christ when we read: “He was taken from prison and from Judgment: and who shall declare His generation? For He was CUT OFF out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was He stricken." (Isaiah 53:8)
CLEARLY – this prophecy was FULFILLED IN CHRIST when He was “cut off” from the living not for Himself -- but for the transgressions of His people. And as I’ve been trying my best TO REVEAL in this Commentary --the people of this Prince who was “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME are the people of THE SPIRITUAL ISRAEL OF GOD – who are the “saved Jews of the Spirit” – NOT “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh. And UNFORTUNATELY – Dispensationalists today try to force Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy and especially Daniel 9:26 to say “THE ANTICHRIST” is being spoke of in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And all I can say AGAIN -- is “REALLY???!!!”
For anyone can read in plain sight that there is no mention of any evil Prince in Daniel 9:26 when we read: “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for Himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.”
HONESTLY – it’s pretty clear that the whole context of Daniel Chapter 9 is about “the Messiah the Prince” who we know was CHRIST WHO CAME!!! And we also know that the people that Daniel was prophesying about were the people of the Nation of Israel at the time of Christ’s 1st Coming. And HONESTLY -- there is NOTHING in Daniel 9:24-27 to lead anyone to believe that “the Messiah the Prince” would be an EVIL ANTICHRIST that would step up on the stage of Human History at the END OF THE WORLD as Dispensationalists teach that Daniel 9:27 proclaims.
And if you get anything out of this Commentary – I pray that it will be THIS TRUTH – that there is only ONE PLACE in the WHOLE BIBLE – only ONE PLACE that speaks of “a Prince” being “cut off” and then the New Covenant being confirmed. And that ONE PLACE is Daniel 9:27 which speaks about JESUS CHRIST confirming the New Covenant of GRACE with “the many” of us in His Book of Life – NOT ONE PARTICULAR MAN that Dispensationalists claim will be “THE ANTICHRIST after the Pre-Trib Rapture – GOD FORBID!!! For if that New Covenant hasn’t been confirmed in Christ’s shed Blood – then NONE OF US ARE SAVED!!!
What Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS – is that the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week is the New Covenant Week when He has been confirming His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us who are “the saved Jews of the Spirit” as we read in Daniel 9:27. And CLEARLY – the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy could NOT BEGIN until Christ was “cut off” or crucified for the sins of His People. And NOW we know and understand after the fact – that in the middle of this final week -- that the sacrifice and offering has NOW ceased because the True Gospel has been taken to all the Nations of the World and everyone in Christ’s Book of Life have been born to be saved and “sealed” and translated into His Kingdom on Earth. This much is clearly REVEALED in Daniel 9:27 -- that this week is from the cross after 62 weeks when Messiah is “cut off” – and then goes all the way from there to the Consummation at the End of the World which is TODAY.
Now That Satan Has been LOOSED to Rule the Whole World as “THE ANTICHRIST” “
The Unsaved Jews of the Flesh” are TODAY Continuing to Persecute “The Saved Jews of the Spirit” Which Will Not End Until Christ Has Thoroughly DEFEATED SATAN!!!
In Galatians Chapter 4 Christ had Paul teach this very important Gospel TRUTH – that we are Sons and heirs of the Promise of Heaven only IN HIM. In other words – that there are 2 SEEDS and 2 types of Jews when He had Paul teach that only those of us with the Holy Spirit indwelling us are the TRUE JEWS. And that we will be hated and persecuted by “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” until the 2nd Coming of Christ when we read:
“Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. But, as he who was born according to THE FLESH then persecuted him who was born according to THE SPIRIT, even so it is now. Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall NOT be heir with the son of the freewoman.” So then, brethren, we are NOT children of the bondwoman but of the free.” (and this is the same “casting out” that Christ had Zechariah prophesy also that will occur on the LAST DAY of this Human Race when Satan’s SEED will be “cast out” of Christ’s Kingdom FOREVER!!!) (Galatians 4:28-31)
But until that time we as Christ’s Christian Army are here to stand up for THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel that REVEALS that EVERYONE on Earth is in this Final Spiritual Battle UNTIL Christ’s 2nd Coming. For this Final Spiritual Battle must occur because Christ’s DIVINE PLAN is to thoroughly DEFEAT SATAN and to bring his Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” down to ruins BEFORE He delivers and Raptures us who are “the saved Jews of the Spirit” on the LAST DAY. And to prove that we are here until this Final Spiritual Battle is over Christ REVEALED to Daniel this prophecy:
“I was watching; and the same horn (who is the “little horn” that is SATAN!!!) was MAKING WAR against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a Judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the Kingdom. (which of course will be in the New Heavens and the New Earth since Christ is going to destroy this Earth by FIRE!!!) (Daniel 7:21-22)
And CLEARLY – those in Satan’s Army are “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” who are persecuting us TODAY who are in Christ’s Christian Army who are “the saved Jews of the Spirit” as we see daily going on all around the Globe!!! We on Earth can’t see the SPIRITUAL MARKING of others on Earth -- but Christ knows who His “Elect” in His Christian Army are who belong to Him – for He hand picked us personally to fight this Final Spiritual Battle alongside of Him. And He REVEALED to John that we had “the seal of God” invisibly written upon us while those who did NOT OBEY His Gospel were those who were marked with “THE MARK OF THE FLESH” which John called by the CRYPTIC LANGUAGE of “THE MARK OF THE BEAST”!!!
And it just can’t be reiterated enough that “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” is NOT a physical mark that ONE PARTICULAR MAN will demand that everyone “Left Behind” after a Pre-Trib Rapture receive in order to be able to “buy and sell” in Department Stores – HARDLY!!! The “MARK OF THE BEAST” is a SPIRITUAL MARK put on those who belong to Satan to show that they are ruled by their fleshly sinful nature because they are still in Bondage to SATAN and SIN!!!
Make no mistake -- Christ prophesied that before His 2nd Coming that the False Prophets in League with Satan would be ruling in the External Global Harlot Church around the Globe as if THEY WERE GOD – and that they would be PREVAILING as we see happening TODAY!!! And CLEARLY – Daniel was shown this time of Great Tribulation in his visions – for Daniel asked how long this “short little season” of SATAN ruling the WHOLE WORLD would last. And he was told that it would last until the power of God’s people had been “shattered” when we read that what Christ prophesied through Daniel’s 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is happening NOW:
“Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to Heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, (which no doubt is Christ declaring and swearing by His own Name for there is NO NAME HIGHER!!!) that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the Holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.” (and as one of God’s people – I can say that we are being “shattered” and persecuted and hated RIGHT NOW just as Christ prophesied we would be!!!) (Daniel 12:6-7)
If you didn’t read my last Commentary – I pray you will go back and read the part with the Subtitle: “Satan’s Greatest Deception of All is Getting the Masses to Worship HimThrough The One World Religion of Ecumenicalism and the One World Government Known as “The Great Reset” Which is also Part of the 2030 Agenda!!! For in that Subtitle I wrote what we all living today need to understand which is this very obvious TRUTH that:
The Global Elites are not even trying to hide their Evil Agenda anymore. For they don’t even deny that they want to do away with Christ’s DIVINE PLAN that Human Government was originally ordained by CHRIST HIMSELF AS GOD to maintain proper organization and administer His Laws on this Earth. In other words – they want the MASSES to HATE CHRIST’S LAWS and to believe that their “Great Reset” with them ruling will be infinitely better than Christ ruling as the Sovereign ruler over Human Government which was to operate on the basis of HIS WORD and DIVINE PLAN and Will. But make no mistake -- Satan and the Plan of the Elites in League with him who want to RESET everything now in this 21st Century has only led to TYRANNY – NOT LIBERTY!!!
And make no mistake – the “shattering” of those of us “Elect” is Satan’s Plan with Satan LOOSED to promote his “Great Reset.” And sadly – much like at the 1st Coming of Christ – our 21st Century Religious Leaders are in bed with Satan’s oppressive and corrupt Governments. And that is causing just as Christ prophesied such GREAT APOSTASY and such a Great Famine of hearing the His Gospel Truth -- that there is now no Salvation left!!! And while part of the reason for that is because Christ has finished saving all of us in His Book of Life – there is also the element of a deliberate REFUSAL to accept Christ’s True Eschatology and to promote instead the ever-so-popular Eschatology of Man because it is what most Christians want to hear.
A Few Closing Thoughts!!!
HONESTLY -- One would have to be in a comma to miss the obvious TRUTH that this World is FAST RACING to a FOREORDAINED AND PREDESTINED END just as Christ’s True Eschatology prophesies – REALLY!!! But here’s THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL– both Daniel and John were shown in their visions that those of us in Christ’s Kingdom will ultimately overcome those who are WARRING AGAINST US who are part of Satan’s Kingdom. And that at Christ’s soon 2nd Coming even though this World and Universe will be destroyed by FIRE along with Satan and those in Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon who are IN REBELLION AGAINST CHRIST – those of us in Christ’s Kingdom will live for all Eternity in the New Heavens and the New Earth that Christ has waiting for us now!!!
And what I’ve tried to convey through Christ’s Word and True Eschatology in this Commentary -- is that along with THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL that there will be A RAPTURE and a FINAL DELIVERANCE of us “Elect” – that THE RAPTURE will NOT take place until Christ has thoroughly DEFEATED SATAN in this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE. And like it or NOT – that is where we are TODAY on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline with EVERYONE on Earth in this Final Battle!!!
In other words -- Today’s LOOSING of SATAN to rule the WHOLE WORLD is “The Abomination of Desolation” that Christ prophesied that we “Elect” would see and that He had
Paul prophesy in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 which we are seeing NOW!!!
And I pray that you believe as I do that if ever there was a cause worth fighting for and a hill worth dying on – it’s the CAUSE OF CHRIST today in DEFEATING SATAN and the Elites in League with him who want to keep us in Christ’s Kingdom in BONDAGE to them and SATAN. But THANKFULLY -- Christ’s DIVINE PLAN IS DELIVERANCE just like the DELIVERANCE in Moses’ Day!!! THINK ABOUT IT – Pharaoh and his Evil Egyptian Army all drowned in the Red Sea. And that’s Christ’s DIVINE PLAN TODAY – to part the very Heavens this time and to leave Satan and those in his Kingdom behind to watch the Rapture and the destruction of this Earth by FIRE -- only to next find their unsaved souls standing before Christ in Heaven to be JUDGED and then thrown into HELL!! Which is WHY we must keep MOVING FORWARD IN FAITH knowing that Christ and those of us in His Kingdom WIN!!!
