“Babylon is Falling” and Christ is WINNING the “Gog and Magog” Battle”
Even Though It Appears Satan is in the Lead!!!
November 8, 2020
HONESTLY -- NO ONE can understand THE CAUSE of Christ’s 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY if they do not understand what has become known as “The Gog Oracle” in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39. For “The Gog Oracle” is clearly a prophesy of Christ’s DIVINE PLAN which has always been to DEFEAT SATAN and those in League with him in his SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” from the beginning of time!!! And CLEARLY – this infamous “Gog Oracle” is an Outline of Christ’s DIVINE PLAN to LOOSE “Gog” or SATAN to take his seat in the Harlot Church as “THE ANTICHRIST” and “the 8th King” in John’s visions who is also called “the little horn” in Daniel’s visions and “Gog” in the “Gog Oracle” in Ezekiel’s visions. And that from there he will lead this FINAL REBELLION.
And CLEARLY -- this Final Rebellion that is going on right now is described the most accurately in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s Eschatology – NOT Man’s False Eschatology. For Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that SATAN today as “Gog” is LOOSED for the primary purpose of DECEIVING THE NATIONS and leading the 2/3 Remnant of unsaved Mankind that were NOT CHOSEN to be saved by Christ to rebel against Him and those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are bringing Christ’s True Gospel Message of these End-Times. And that is WHY this Final Spiritual Battle is seen raging TODAY in both the Secular and Religious Worlds as Satan has convinced those with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” who belong to him to be AT WAR with Christ and His Word and those of us bringing Christ’s True Gospel!!!
And what Christ meant to convey with this infamous “Gog Oracle” -- was that the Final Events of these End-Times would lead up to the TOTAL DEFEAT AND DEMISE OF SATAN on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity. I have a whole Chapter dedicated to the “Gog Oracle” in my Book “Real Rapture Revealed” – but in this short Commentary -- I’d like to at least give enough evidence that demands a verdict that SATAN is “Gog” who is leading this Final Rebellion today against Christ and those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And hopefully this brief outline of 4 simple points that I have listed below in Ezekiel Chapter 38 and several points that are taken from Ezekiel Chapter 39 – will REVEAL that we TODAY are in the events leading up to the RAPTURE on “The Day of the Lord” which is the LAST DAY of Human History.
But sadly – this is NOT what Man’s False Eschatology teaches by any stretch of the imagination which only proves that “The Gog and Magog” Battle is a FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE of MAN AT WAR with Christ and His Word. And that clearly the 21st Century Esteemed Religious Leaders today are every bit as much AT WAR with Christ about His 2nd Coming as the Pharisees and the Sadducees were AT WAR with Christ about His 1stComing!!! And to help us understand His DIVINE PLAN – Christ had Ezekiel REVEAL these very important points that prophesy the soon Defeat of SATAN who is “Gog” when we read:
1) The Conscription of “Gog” who is SATAN – REVEALED to us in Ezekiel 38:1-9. In these verses Christ wanted 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.In other words – Satan didn’t 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 existed on this Earth in their unsaved soul existence from birth to death.
2) the Motives of “Gog” – REVEALED to us in Ezekiel 38:10-13 convey to us that SATAN who is “Gog” has a high degree of Scriptural Knowledge – particularly End-Time prophecy when Christ had Ezekiel write of Satan that he was “wiser” than even Daniel and that no secret was hid from him” as we read in Ezekiel 28:3. And certainly in his rise to power as the “little horn” we are told that he would understand “dark sentences” which refers to “deep and hidden knowledge” of the Bible as we read in Ps. 49:4. And now that he has risen to take his seat as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Apostate External Global End-Time Church described in the Book of Revelation – Satan has ensured that his False Doctrines that most Congregations have adopted today which includes Man’s False Eschatology – appear theologically sound. When actually they are nothing more than the “crafty distortions” of Christ’s True Eschatology of these End-Times!!!
3) the Advance of “Gog” – REVEALED in Ezekiel 38:14-16 definitely prophesies the LAST DAYS of this Present Age of Humanity when Ezekiel is shown that the whole world will be engaged in the Final Spiritual Battle LED BY “GOG” WHO IS SATAN which causes the GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
4) the Judgment of “Gog” – REVEALED in Ezekiel 38:17-22 describes Satan’s rise to power as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Church of TODAY when Ezekiel saw in his visions that Satan will use his increased powers to NEUTRALIZE the witness of Christians everywhere by “silencing and killing” the true “FACT WITNESSES” of Christ and thereby cutting Christ’s Words of TRUTH off!!! And clearly -- Daniel and Ezekiel and John among many other Old Testament Prophets -- were given SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE from Christ’s Holy Spirit that at the END of Satan’s Final 4th Epoch rule of this World that Satan will lead a Final Rebellion against Christ and those of us in “the Camp of the Saints” which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.” And they all understood from Christ that the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE would END by Christ pouring out THE WRATH of His Final 7th Plague upon Satan and his Army of False Prophets before casting them into HELL. In other words – that this World will END at the End of this Final Spiritual Battle of “Gog and Magog” which is also called “Armageddon” – NOT AFTER a Future 1000 year reign of Christ with Christ PYSICALLY returning to reign from a LITERAL PHYSICAL TEMPLE in Jerusalem as Man’s False Eschatology teaches!!!
And CLEARLY the demise of Satan is outlined in Ezekiel Chapter 39 as Christ paints a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE for us of the outline of “The Slaying of Gog” in Ezekiel 39:1-8 – and “The Plundering of Gog” in Ezekiel 39:9-10 – followed by “The Burial of Gog” recorded in Ezekiel 39:11-16 and “The Sacrificing of Gog” recorded in Ezekiel 39:17-20. I go into this in much greater detail in my Book – but suffice it to say that THE CENTRAL THEME of Ezekiel 39 is the DEFEAT of the False Prophets who are in League with Satan during this “little season” of Satan’s last rule of this Earth when “Darkness is again reigning” and CHRIST’S TRUTHS of these End-Times are all but being “cut off” which will NOT abate until Christ sounds the LAST 7th TRUMPET and steps back into Man’s dimension again which is
called “THE RAPTURE”!!!
HONESTLY – NO ONE can understand Christ’s DIVINE PLAN of these End-Times without studying all 3 of these very important Apocalyptic Books which are Daniel – Ezekiel – and The Book of Revelation which I have done now for over 20 years. And one of the most important points that I’ve learned from Christ’s True Gospel -- is that while Satan was DEFEATED and BOUND at the Cross when Christ gained the Victory over him there – there will be a FINAL JUDGMENT DAY for Satan and those in his SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great.” And this Final Judgment is right on the Horizon now at the END of the Gospel Era which has lasted the whole prophesied time of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy which goes from Christ’s 1st Coming until His soon 2ndComing. In other words – Satan has been BOUND until this “proper time” now when he has been LOOSED by Christ to go out and DECEIVE the Nations once again like he was doing
before the Cross and before being bound.
And the purpose of Satan’s LOOSING REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that one Final Spiritual Battle has to be fought between the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of Satan as a prelude to Christ’s 2nd Coming. And that this LOOSING OF SATAN and his 200 MILLION ARMY OF DEMONS from HELL are part of the JUDGMENT of the False Prophets in the Harlot Church who John saw Christ pouring out this Final Judgment on in the form of the LAST 3 WOES. And CLEARLY -- Christ had both Paul and John prophesy that the 1st 2 WOES are BLINDNESS which has NOW led to the “strong delusions” and the DAMNATION that has come upon the Unfaithful in the Harlot Church for believing in Doctrines of Demons instead of the True Gospel of Christ and His True Eschatology of these End-Times.
Christ has LOOSED Satan Today to Fight This Final Spiritual Battle of “Armageddon”
which is also called the “Gog and Magog Battle”
CLEARLY – Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th and last vision that He would LOOSE Satan to fight this Final Spiritual Battle of today which could NOT occur until everyone in Christ’s Book of Life had been born on Earth to be saved and “sealed” and translated into the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where those of us 1/3 Remnant that Christ has now saved exist on Earth in our saved soul existence. And the CRYPTIC LANGUAGE of “Gog and Magog” taken from Ezekiel Chapter 38 was NEVER in a million years meant to be taken as the armies of One Particular Man who would become “THE ANTICHRIST” after the RAPTURE of the Church as Dispensationalists teach relentlessly today – HARDLY!!!
For “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that “Gog” is SATAN – and “Magog” are those in his Army who Christ sent in Ezekiel’s Day against the unfaithful Congregation as judgment from Him for their Apostasy and rebelling against Him and His Word. And TODAY at the END OF THIS WORLD we read that Christ REVEALED to both Ezekiel and John that He would LOOSE Satan to gather his Army from “the 4 corners of the Earth” to come against the Unfaithful Congregation of Christ again as Judgment for the same unfaithfulness and Apostasy. And from John’s 7th vision we read a description of this Final Spiritual Battle that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST find ourselves fighting today when we read how it will END for those rebelling against Christ and His Word TODAY:
“Now when the thousand years have expired, (which is the CRYPTIC Length of the whole Gospel Era and the 70th Week Prophecy of Daniel!!!) Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the Nations which are in the four corners of the Earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the Earth and surrounded the Camp of the saints and the Beloved City. (which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” – NOT the Jerusalem in the Middle East!!!) And FIRE came down from God out of Heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone where THE BEAST and the False Prophet are. (which stands for Satan and his Army of a 2/3 REMNANT of this World’s population recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9!!!) And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” (Revelation 20:7-10)
While this is a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of today’s Spiritual Battle of “Gog and Magog” which is also called “Armageddon” by John – the CRYPTIC MESSAGE that Christ was trying to convey through John’s 7th vision was that He would LOOSE SATAN to once again go forth to deceive the Nations from the four corners of the Earth as he was doing before being bound at the Cross. And this LOOSING of Satan would be AFTER everyone was born in Christ’s Book of Life to have “THE MARK OF SALVATION” invisibly written on our foreheads by Christ Himself. For John saw that Christ’s Judgment would come upon those NOT having His “seal” of Salvation. So regardless of what Man’s False Eschatology teaches -- “Gog and Magog” in this 7th vision given to John -- does NOT represent One Particular Man who will become “THE ANTICHRIST” who with his Army of Russia and China along with many other Nations will attack the Nation of Israel in the Middle East sometime soon – for that was NEVER PROPHESIED by Christ even though it is extremely popular and has managed to DECEIVE a lot of even Professed Christians!!!
Man’s False Eschatology is untenable at best once it is carefully compared with what Christ REVEALED to Ezekiel – that “Gog” is Satan and “Magog” is Satan’s Army of the unsaved 2/3 Remnant out of this World who belong to him – AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!! For even in CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE Christ NEVER CONTRADICTS Himself. I mean – think about it -- if “Gog” was SATAN in Ezekiel’s Day -- which he was!!! – then SATAN is “Gog” and the one leading this FINAL SPIRITUAL REBELLION today – NOT Vladimir Putin or any other One Particular Man in the Future!!! For that would be confusing at best. And CLEARLY – it was never Christ’s intention to confuse us “Elect” in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST about these End-Times -- but to ENLIGHTEN US with THE TRUTH of what He REVEALED about these End-Times to
Daniel and Ezekiel and John in their visions.
And that’s WHY Christ Himself tells us clearly who “Gog and Magog” represent in John’s 7thvision when He had John prophesy that “Magog” would be ALL the Nations which are in “the four corners of the Earth” – NOT just Russia or China or any specific Nations -- but ALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. And CLEARLY – the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL meaning of “Gog and Magog” -- is that “Magog” represents the unsaved in the Nations which is the 2/3 UNSAVED REMNANT out of this world’s population today that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would NOT be saved by Him but would make up those in Satan’s Army.
And one very important part of the Prophecy of this Final Spiritual Battle taking place today to understand -- is that Christ prophesies that Satan was going forth DECEIVING the Nations before He came and bound him so that Satan could not DECEIVE THE NATIONS during the 70th Week of Daniel which is the last over 2000 years now of Church Outreach -- proving that the 1000 years in Revelation Chapter 20 is a CRYPTIC NUMBER!!! And sadly -- that is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL TRUTH that Dispensationalists who are Pre-Millennialists would rather not anyone even consider to be true – or else it would prove their Eschatology of Christ returning to reign on Earth in the Future for a 1000 years FALSE – which it is!!!
According to Christ’s True Eschatology After This Final Battle of Gog and Magog
There is the FINAL JUDGMENT – NOT another 1007 Years of Mankind
Christ’s True Eschatology is pretty clear that after this Final DEFEAT of Satan in the Gog and Magog Battle that the Earth will be destroyed by Him reigning down FIRE from Heaven when 1stwe read from Peter and then from John:
“But The Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the Heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the Earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.” (2nd Peter 3:10) And then John writes: “And death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.” (which comes after the Final Spiritual Battle leaving NO ROOM AT ALL for another 1007 years of Humanity as Man’s False Eschatology Teaches with their False Prophesy of 7 years of Tribulation and then
a 1000 year reign of Christ on Earth!!!) (Revelation 20:14)
CLEARLY – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that Death is swallowed up in victory on “The Day of the Lord” which is the LAST DAY when Christ Returns to end Satan’s rule of this World FOREVER . In other words – there is no more HUMANITY with people being born and dying after this Final Spiritual Battle ENDS at Christ’s 2ndComing -- for “Death” and HELL will then be cast into the Lake of Fire. THINK ABOUT IT -- Hell in John’s 7th vision above is the Estate of the wicked apart from God. And when Christ called the wicked “the Sons of Perdition” and the “children of the Devil and Hell” as we read in Matthew 23:15 – it didn’t mean that they were actually in a place called Hell yet – HARDLY!!! -- but that their Final Estate would be Hell. In other words – by Christ choosing NOT to save a 2/3 Remnant of this World -- that meant that they have from birth to death been destined for their Final Estate which will be HELL on The Day of the Lord’s 2nd Coming.
SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING -- Christ calls “the Sons of Perdition” the “children of HELL” who are invisibly marked by Christ Himself with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” as we read in John’s 7 visions. And likewise -- SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING -- the 1/3 Remnant that Christ chose to save are His “children of Heaven” that He has invisibly marked with “THE MARK OF SALVATION” which is the Blood of the Lamb. But on the FINAL DAY OF JUDGEMENT which is right on the Horizon today -- there will be no more Estate of Hell for man to be part of. For HELL will be cast into the LITERAL HELL which is the second death along with all who were of this Estate called HELL!!!
In other words -- HELL will become a REALITY at Christ’s 2ndComing – for NO ONE has been LITERALLY cast into Hell yet because the Final Day of Judgment has not yet taken place and will NOT take place until the LAST DAY which is called “The Day of the Lord.” But when that infamous Day arrives – Hell will be densely populated with the 2/3 Remnant that Christ never chose to save – leaving NO TIME for a Future 7 years of Tribulation followed by a LITERAL AND PHYSICAL 1000 year reign of Christ on Earth as Man’s False Eschatology teaches.
Christ’s True Eschatology Teaches That Satan Was LOOSED Before Being BOUND at the Cross and Has Today Been LOOSED AGAIN To Fight the Final Battle of “Gog and Magog”
CLEARLY – The “Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology and True Gospel teaches that Satan was BOUND so that the fullness of the 1/3 Remnant out of ALL the Nations that Christ chose to save could come into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And clearly – THIS TRUTH is an integral part of the Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven. But it’s also a TRUTH that Dispensationalists fight so hard to DENY – CONTRADICT – DISTORT and CHALLENGE to keep their False Gospel ALIVE AND WELL that FALSELY teaches that Christ has 2 Bodies of people!!! When HONESTLY – THE CAUSE OF CHRIST involved Satan being BOUND by His Victory over him at the Cross to save BOTH Jews and Gentiles. For Christ’s death and resurrection took place so that SATAN -- SIN -- ALONG WITH THE 2ND DEATH could be DEFEATED for the 1/3 Remnant that Christ had decided would be saved which included
BOTH JEWS AND GENTILES after the Cross!!!
And REGARDLESS of the False Eschatology of Man – which is based on Pre-Millennial Dispensationalism that claims that Satan was NOT bound at the Cross but will be bound AFTER the Rapture of the Church -- Dispensationalists can’t answer WHY it appears that we are in the Great Tribulation TODAY!!! But The “Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology CAN AND DOES EXPLAIN WHY we are TODAY in this prophesied time of Great Tribulation!!! For Christ’s True Eschatology explicitly teaches that Satan’s “hour of darkness” during His 1st Coming FORESHADOWS this “hour of darkness” TODAY at His 2ndComing because at both times SATAN was LOOSED!!! And we can understand this TRUTH when Christ said these words to the Temple Priests who were in League with Satan and came to arrest Him:
“Every day I was with you in the Temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me.
But this is your hour -- when darkness reigns." (Luke 22:53)
CLEARLY – Christ was saying that it was Satan’s “hour of darkness” when he was still LOOSED to reign before the Cross – but that he would be DEFEATED and brought down by Christ’s Death and resurrection and would be BOUND by Christ’s Victory over him at the Cross. And this was done so that the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven could then go to the Gentiles after Christ had broken down the Middle Wall of separation between the two by His Death. So according to the True Gospel of Christ there are only 2 times of GREAT TRIBULATION – once when “darkness reigned” before the Cross and then again at the End now of this Present Age of Humanity which we are in TODAY when Christ has taken His Restraint off of Satan now and LOOSED him to fight this Final Spiritual Battle of “Gog and Magog.” And the reason WHY this time of APOSTASY and Great Tribulation so consistently mirrors the time before the Cross when “darkness reigned then also” – is because it is The “Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
Dispensationalists are AT WAR with Christ’s True Gospel When They Deny
That Christ Only Has The One True Body of Christ
Christ leaves no doubt that BINDING SATAN was part of His DIVINE PLAN of coming to Earth when He prophesied in His Apocalyptic Discourse about this time TODAY of Great Tribulation when Satan has again been LOOSED after 1st being BOUND: “And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the Elect’s sake those days will be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22) But sadly Man’s False Eschatology has today convinced a huge part of Christendom that Satan will NOT be bound until ATER the Rapture and the 7 years of Tribulation when Dispensationalists say “the Elect” spoken of in this verse are those in the Nation of Israel TODAY!!! And this is ALL based on their REFUSAL to believe that Christ has broken down the Middle Wall of separation between the Jews and the Gentiles reconciling BOTH Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.
In other words – Dispensationalists are AT WAR with Christ’s True Gospel when they teach that “The Elect” spoken of in Matthew 24:22 are THE JEWS and NOT both Jews and Gentiles in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST today!!! For Paul prophesied from the Lord that Christ had broken down the Middle Wall of Separation that “He might reconcile them both (meaning JEWS AND GENTILES!!!) to God in ONE BODY through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity (that existed between the Jews and the Gentiles!!!) as we read in Ephesians 2:14-18. And then to PROVE this extremely important and integral part of His True Gospel -- Christ had Paul prophesy what had been a MYSTERY to the Old Testament Prophets when Paul wrote from the Lord:
“This MYSTERY is that the Gentiles are FELLOW HEIRS, members of the SAME BODY, and partakers of the Promise IN CHRIST JESUS through the (True) Gospel.” (Ephesians 3:6)
And because Dispensationalism DENIES this very important TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel – it also DENIES Dispensationalism any claim to the Christianity that Christ taught AT ALL. I mean – think about it – when Dispensationalists DENY that Christ has always had ONLY THE ONE TRUE HOLY NATION made up of Jews and Gentiles reconciled together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – they are AT WAR with Him and His True Gospel pure and simple. And to say today that “The Elect” spoken of in Matthew 24:22 are only THE JEWS who Dispensationalists claim are Christ’s “TRUE CHOSEN PEOPLE” -- is to believe A LIE!!! For the words “Elect” and “Chosen” are the exact same Greek words used by Christ that refer to His People -- which Christ REVEALED to Zechariah is a 1/3 Remnant chosen out of this World’ population that after the Cross included a REMNANT OF GENTILES ALSO that Christ chose to save even before the foundation of the World!!!
CLEARLY – on the Old Testament side of the Cross – the Old Testament Congregation had a 1/3 Remnant saved who were the “Chosen Generation.” But after the Cross the 1/3 Remnant of the New Testament Congregation also became part of “THE CHOSEN” and Christ’s True “Elect.” And HONESTLY – Dispensationalists are NOT teaching Christ’s True Gospel today when they teach that Christ has 2 BODIES of people after He broke down the Middle Wall of Separation!!!
And not only are Dispensationalists fighting against Christ’s True Gospel – but they do NOT really understand what Christ meant when He prophesied about this time when Satan is LOOSED and “darkness is again reigning” when we read:
“And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the Elect’s sake
those days will be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22)
For what Christ was trying to convey was that at this time of Satan BEING LOOSED that he will so greatly DECEIVE THE NATIONS that if these days weren’t shorted by Christ – then there would be no TRUE CHRISTIAN left on Earth to be RAPTURED because ALL FLESH would have been DECEIVED – THINK ABOUT IT!!! And that’s WHY Christ REVEALED to John that BEFORE the LOOSING of Satan that all of the TRUE ISRAEL OF GOD -- which includes everyone in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST living on Earth today – must be “sealed” before Satan is LOOSED to DECEIVE THE NATIONS!!!
CLEARLY -- the number “7” is the number of completeness or totality -- and the interval between the 6th and 7th seal illustrates what must occur before the pouring out of the 7th Bowl Judgment at the opening of the 7thseal. And CLEARLY -- what must take place BEFORE the 7th Seal is opened is the Judgment of the 1st 2 WOES of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS which have obviously ALREADY been poured out by Christ upon those in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” if one has the Spiritual eyes to see it and THE MIND OF CHRIST to understand it. For even though The Book of Revelation is written in HIGHLY CRYPTIC LANGUAGE -- it is self-evident that Christ is using this 7th Chapter of The Book of Revelation to illustrate to us that before the Final Judgment of the LAST 3rd WOE is poured out on “The Day of the Lord” that the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments are 1st poured out which are SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS that must occur BEFORE the Final Judgment recorded in Revelation Chapter 8 could be poured out.
And it goes without saying that Satan had to be BOUND so this time of his LOOSING would not happen until the Lord had finished building His True Eternal Universal Church on Earth. For if Satan was not bound at the Cross – the Great Tribulation could have happened BEFORE everyone in Christ’s Book of Life had been born to be saved. AGAIN – think about it – it was the BINDING of Satan that kept the Great Tribulation from taking place before this “proper time” in History. For if Christ had NOT BOUND SATAN -- then the END OF THE WORLD would have taken place a long time ago -- REALLY!!! And that means that Satan was BOUND so that he could not deceive the Nations like he is doing right now TODAY at the End now of this Present Age of Humanity. But even though Satan is LOOSED -- the END OF THE WORLD will NOT come until Christ thoroughly defeats Satan and ENDS his 4th and Final Epoch rule of this World NOW that the fulness of the Gentiles have come into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.
Which is WHY The “Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology clearly teaches that the testimony of the 2 Witnesses which represent THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST had to be finished and everyone “sealed” and the Temple of the TRUE BELIEVERS MEASURED as we read in Revelation 11:7 BEFORE Satan could be LOOSED to fight this Final Spiritual Battle of “Gog and Magog.” In other words – the CRYPTIC MESSAGE of “All Israel being saved” needs to be understood as this time TODAY when all of Christ’s “Elect” in His Book of Life have ALL been born on Earth for Him to save. And that is WHY NOW He has LOOSED Satan to Marshal his army of DECEIVERS AND FALSE PROPHETS in a worldwide assault on the Camp of the Saints which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where those of us in our saved soul existence exist today on Earth. And this VAST ARMY of Satan will trample the Holy City of God underfoot for 1,335 days which Christ REVEALED to Daniel in his Last vision recorded in Daniel Chapter 12 is the duration of today’s GREAT TRIBULATION.
And this tribulation is greater than any that has ever been in the world before – or EVER will be again because of Christ’s removal of His hand of restraint on SATAN – NOT on One Particular Man who hasn’t even stepped up on the stage of Human History yet as Man’s False Eschatology teaches. CLEARLY -- the deceiving of Satan is so great that except these Days of GREAT TRIBUATLION were shortened by Christ Himself -- then there would be no true believer left to be Raptured – for ALL would be under Satan’s MIND CONTROL – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
But MERCIFULLY – for “the Elect’s sake” Christ has “SEALED” our minds so that we can NOT be deceived along with shortening these days of Great Tribulation PROVING that the victory will be CHRIST’S – NOT SATAN’S!!! And on “The Day of the Lord” which is the LAST DAY – Christ’s True Eschatology prophesies that there will definitely be THE FINAL DELIVERANCE of THE RAPTURE of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. For Christ’s True Gospel REVEALS that we will be changed from Mortal to immortal “in an instant and in the twinkling of an eye” on “The Day of the Lord” when Christ parts the very Heavens and steps back into Man’s dimension again to DELIVER AND RAPTURE US!!!
“Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name,
Saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many”!!!
CLEARLY -- these are serious times that we are living in when it is more OBVIOUS with each passing day now that Satan has been LOOSED to go out and DECEIVE THE NATIONS!!! And Christ warns us just like He did in Ezekiel and Daniel and Jeremiah’s Day that His DIVINE PLAN INCLUDES the Judgment of His Congregation for their UNFAITHFULNESS to Him and His Word. So if we have been DECEIVED by Man’s False Eschatology like I once was in falling for some of the False teachings of Dispensationalism – there is still time to repent and turn from those LIES!!! For clearly we are ALL very capable of being DECEIVED by Satan’s “crafty distortions” of Christ’s TRUTHS!!! And as I’ve written in many past Commentaries -- one of my favorite sayings is:
“When a Man who is HONESTLY mistaken hears THE TRUTH –
he will either quit being mistaken or cease to be HONEST”!!!
Needless to say I chose to quit being MISTAKEN when Christ’s Holy Spirit and Word proved me WRONG – that what I was trusting in was actually the False Eschatology of Man that wasbased upon the False Gospel of Dispensational Pre-Millennialism – NOT on “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology. So I changed what I falsely had grown to believe as THE TRUTH of these End-Times to Christ’s True Gospel of these End-Times.
HONESTLY -- we living today have the example of the Old Testament that teaches that if we trust in “the Hananiah’s” who are False Prophets today telling us LIES – that if we trust in those LIES instead of trusting what Christ says through His Word and Holy Spirit – then we are heading for JUDGMENT!!! And clearly -- in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Days the Judgment lasted 70 years of Babylonian Captivity – but TODAY we only have the CRYPTIC NUMBER that Daniel was given of 1,335 days that this time of GREAT TRIBULATION will last. And NONE of us know how long that will be!!! But make no mistake -- Christ is judging the unfaithful today just like He did in the Old Testament Days. And we’ve been warned that the Babylonian Judgment in the Old Testament Days most definitely FORESHADOWS this Final Judgment of TODAY – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
SADLY though -- so many in Christendom are NOT thinking about what happened to Christ’s Old Testament Congregation for their APOSTASY and unfaithfulness. And they are NOT trusting in Christ’s TRUE GOSPEL and His True Eschatology of these End-Times but in a False Gospel which promotes Man’s False Eschatology that will only lead to their DESOLATION at the 2ndComing of Christ!!! And lest we forget what happened in Jeremiah’s day -- Christ explicitly had Jeremiah give Hananiah -- WHO WAS A FALSE PROPHET who made his people trust IN LIES about that time of the Judgment being poured out on them – a very grave sentence of JUDGMENT and condemnation.
FOR SURE Christ is saying today to our 21stCentury Hananiah’s these very same words in WARNING them NOT to teach His people LIES about these End-Times and THE RAPTURE which they say will happen BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins which is just NOT TRUE!!! Everyone living today should read this indictment of Hananiah that should serve as a WARNING to all those making Christ’s people trust in THE LIE that The Church will NOT be going through the GREAT TRIBULATION when we are OBVIOUSLY IN IT!!!
And it needs to be reiterated what Christ had Jeremiah tell Hananiah when we read:
“Go and tell Hananiah, saying, ‘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 he was a “type” of Satan which the whole unsaved world is serving TODAY!!!) I have given him the beasts of the field also.” Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the 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 prophet died the same year in the seventh month.” (Jer. 28:12-17)
Christ’s DIVINE PLAN in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day foreshadows His DIVINE PLAN of today – which is to JUDGE those who are teaching “rebellion” against Him and His Word about these End-Times. This prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION for us who have remained faithful to Christ and His Word is clearly foreshadowed by the time of Great Tribulation in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day when the whole Congregation was drug off into 70 years of Babylonian Captivity which included Ezekiel and Daniel with only Jeremiah being allowed to escape.
And that time of Judgment only foreshadows this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION when Satan is ruling as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the External Global Harlot APOSTATE Congregation of Christ and now leading even so many Professed Christians astray with Man’s False Eschatology. And clearly it is SATAN that is being allowed by Christ to BLIND those who refuse to believe THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel as JUDGMENT – NOT One Particular Man in the Future who hasn’t even stepped up on the stage of Human History yet as Dispensationalists teach!!!
Christ REVEALED to Daniel that the 2nd half his 70th Week Prophecy would include the time when Satan was LOOSED to rule in the Apostate Congregation as “THE ANTICHRIST” which would cause a time of GREAT TRIBULATION that would last a CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1,335 days. But that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST would be BLESSED if we made it through this time. For Christ would see to it that we would NOT BE DECEIVED if we remained faithful to His Word. That we would know from the visions given through Daniel and Ezekiel and John that Satan would be “THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION” that we would see HAS NOW BEEN LOOSED to DECEIVE THE NATIONS. And that when we saw this Abomination that we should REFUSE to believe his LIES about these End-Times promoted by his False Prophets. And part of those LIES of Satan is that HE IS NOT “THE ANTICHRIST” and that the 70th Week Prophecy of Daniel is yet Future and only for “THE JEWS.”
CLEARLY -- “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that the 2nd half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is happening NOW – which means there is NO PRE -- MID – or POST Tribulation falsely based on 7 years of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy taking place in the Future AFTER THE RAPTURE!!! For Christ REVEALED to Daniel that the Great Tribulation lasts a CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1,335 days – and that all of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that He gave His Life to save will at the time of His 2ndComing be going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when Satan would be LOOSED as “THE ANTICHRIST” to DECEIVE THE NATIONS. So the idea of a Pre-Trib Rapture is A LIE!!!
AGAIN – it just can’t be reiterated enough that Dispensationalists are AT WAR with Christ and His True Gospel when they teach relentlessly that THE RAPTURE happens BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins. For Christ explicitly REVEALED to John in his 6thvision that He was going to BRING BABYLON DOWN and that it would FALL because of this FINAL REBELLION of Mankind against Christ and those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where we 1/3 Remnant exist in our saved soul existence on this Earth. And John saw in his 6th vision that not only is Christ going to bring Satan’s Kingdom down to ruins -- but that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST would be here on Earth to watch it fall which we see happening TODAY -- and as far as I can tell NO ONE HAS BEEN RAPTURED!!!
How The Deliverance of Moses’ Day FORESHADOWS
the Final Deliverance of us “Elect” Today
CLEARLY -- this time of FINAL DELIVERANCE TODAY is like the time of deliverance in Moses’ Day to be sure. And anyone who knows me -- knows how much I LOVE MOSES – for he is such a great example for us living today going through these LAST 3 WOES which are the 5th -- 6th and 7th Plagues that are FORESHADOWED by Christ pouring out the 8th – 9thand 10th Plagues in Moses’ Day on Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire. Pharaoh was a “type of SATAN” – and after the 10thPlague was poured out with Moses being a “type of Christ” in delivering His people – Moses next found himself with the Red Sea looming out in front of him and the Egyptian Army barreling down behind him. Which is a whole like where we are TODAY on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline waiting to be DELIVERED and Raptured on the LAST DAY with this World growing more evil with each passing day now that Satan has been LOOSED!!!
And when Moses cried out to the Lord -- Christ said in so many words through His Holy Spirit: “Why are you crying out to Me – MOVE!!!” And when Moses moved forward IN FAITH – Christ parted the Red Sea for Him!!! And that’s how it is today – for even though Satan seems to be WINNING this Final Spiritual Battle of “Gog and Magog” -- we have to MOVE FORWARD trusting Christ and his DIVINE PLAN!!! For His Will and Plan are perfect -- and only His Will and DIVINE PLAN are going to be FULFILLED in the END regardless of what Man’s False Eschatology teaches or what Mankind in general thinks is going to happen. And if we want to be of any use to Christ AT ALL – then we had better be strapping on our SPIRITUAL ARMOR which is the Word of God and PRAYER – for we are now at the END of this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE AND SATAN and those in League with him will NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT!!! And the way that Christ is calling us to FIGHT -- is by aligning our Will with His Will and DIVINE PLAN of DEFEATING SATAN and his LIES and DECEPTIONS by our standing up for THE TRUTH!!!
For even though this is the prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION when Satan has been LOOSED to DECEIVE THE NATIONS to be AT WAR with Christ and those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” – being in Christ’s Christian Army means standing up for TRUTH and righteousness. And knowing that Christ is DEFEATING Satan with us EXPOSING his Evil Deeds of Darkness should give us THE FAITH TO MOVE FORWARD knowing that Christ and we in His Christian Army WILL WIN IN THE END!!! In other words -- we can’t stop fighting – for Christ’s Word tells us that Satan’s plan is “to wear us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST out” which is what Christ REVEALED to Daniel in his visions of these End-Times when we read of what is happening now in the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week prophecy:
“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” (Daniel 7:25)
I have to admit that the EVIL DEEDS of Satan and those in League with him really are “wearing me out” – but no matter how WORN OUT I become I also know that I will NEVER stop fighting for Christ and the TRUTH of His Gospel!!! For I often think of how it must have been for the Disciples and followers of Christ watching the PASSION of Christ and hearing the crowd yell to RELEASE BARABBAS who was a “known murderer and CRIMINAL” -- and to instead “crucify” CHRIST!!! And it was because they didn’t stop fighting that we have Christ’s True Gospel today – THINK ABOUT IT!!! Those were certainly times of Great Tribulation for them just as these times are TODAY!!!
But what separated that time from TODAY -- is that THEN Christ willingly laid down His Life to save us – while today He is NOT coming back as a Lamb led to the Slaughter anymore – HARDLY!!! He is coming back as THE LION OF JUDAH and a Mighty Warrior – and those in League with Satan not going to go UNPUNISHED this time which includes the Esteemed Religious Leaders who at the time of the Passion of Christ were instigating His people to believe in LIES and were leading the crowd to shout “Crucify Him” – “Crucify Him” while releasing Barabbas!!!
We Christians have been given the POWER OF PRAYER and we should be PRAYING that Christ will EXPOSE the LIES of those in power who are doing so many of the EVIL DEEDS of Darkness today – for what Christ had Paul prophesy applies to TODAY in this time when Satan is leading this Final Rebellion against Christ and His Words of TRUTH which is WHY Christ had Paul prophesy: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather EXPOSE THEM”!!! Ephesians 5:11) All I can say is “LET THE EXPOSING BEGIN” – and rest assured that Christ is counting on us Christians to do the EXPOSING of Satan’s LIES and the False Prophets promoting them – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
No doubt the Israelites thought that Pharaoh was WINNING too when Plague after Plague was poured out and Pharaoh still would NOT “Let Christ’s People go”!!! But the CRYPTIC MESSAGE that Christ was trying to convey in that story of DELIVERANCE -- is that He has ALWAYS used the weather and nature to fight SATAN with!!! For the DELIVERANCE of His 1/3 Remnant began with the Great Flood in Noah’s Day when He used the forces of Nature in that time of DELIVERANCE. And then the Deliverance at the Red Sea included the pouring out of the 10 Plagues -- AND SO IT GOES TODAY with these last 7 Plagues which have been going from partial to complete all the while growing in INTENSITY!!!
CLEARLY – Christ has used every Department of the Universe to justly WARN unsaved Mankind that the Final Day of Judgment is REAL and is well deserved because they JUST REFUSE to repent of their EVIL DEEDS!!! And this Final Day of Judgment that is on the Horizon right now TODAY is no different -- when we have seen just this past year ONE PLAGUE AFTER ANOTHER being poured out by Christ which has affected Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” PHYSICALLY – ECONOMICALLY – AND SPIRITUALLY!!! And rest assured in John’s 6thvision recorded in Revelation Chapter 18 that Christ REVEALED to John that Babylon would INDEED FALL – and it is FALLING TODAY!!! And in the process Christ has been using these Weather Disasters to bring Satan’s Kingdom down just like He did in Moses’ Day with Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire – which is no doubt WHY He has ALLOWED the Coronavirus to spread all around the Globe!!!
But WE MUST NEVER FORGET that Christ has been in the process of DELIVERING the 1/3 Remnant of this World that He chose to save before the foundation of the World since the Days of Noah. And rest assured that today’s Deliverance will be a WHOLE LOT more SPECTACULAR than even the parting of the Red Sea in Moses’ Day!!! And Satan -- just like Pharaoh -- will NOT WIN!!!!!!!!!
I PRAY that after reading this Commentary that you will see that Christ WINS the “Gog and Magog” Battle which is also called “Armageddon” and is going on now TODAY!!! And that He is calling us “Elect” to fight until we hear Him sound the Final 7thTrumpet when He will END Satan’s rule of this World FOREVER!!! Christ’s DIVINE PLAN is to DEFEAT SATAN and those in League with Him and may we MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH just like Moses did until the very Heavens are parted on “The Day of the Lord” which is coming SOON!!!
But until that LAST DAY I am always and forever in His Service . . . . . Mary Sullivan
