The Great Divide Over Whether Christ is Coming Back
To Reign on Earth for a 1000 Years???!!!
November 28, 2021
HONESTLY --The Book of Revelation is probably one of the most misunderstood Books of the Bible today because of THE GREAT DIVIDE over the Events that Christ prophesied would take place before THE END OF THE WORLD!!! And one of those hotly debated Events is whether or not Christ plans to return to Earth to reign LITERALLY and PHYSICALLY from a rebuilt 3rd Temple in Jerusalem for a 1000 years or whether the LAST TRUMPET prophesies the LAST DAY of this Human Race.
And having studied these End-Times intently as I have for over 20 years now – it doesn’t take long to understand from Christ’s Word and His Holy Spirit that the Events that will occur from His Ascension to His 2nd Coming are also covered by Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy which makes NO reference to a LITERAL 1000 year reign of Christ on Earth AFTER His 2nd Coming. For “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology explicitly teaches that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is the time between His 1stComing when Christ’s Millennial Spiritual Kingdom was inaugurated after His Death and resurrection – until His 2nd Coming when He is Returning to CONSUMMATE His already inaugurated Kingdom that was restored at the Cross and has been going on for a CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1000 years now since His Ascension.
In other words – the number 1000 that John prophesies in his 7th vision REVEALS the CRYPTIC LENGTH of the WHOLE GOSPEL ERA that began at the Cross and has reached its completion with every Nation now evangelized. And according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology both Daniel and John’s visions of these End-Times confirm that the CONSUMMATION of Christ’s Kingdom takes place on the LAST DAY of this Human Race!!!
But as I wrote in my last Commentary – there is still sadly THE GREAT DIVIDE going on in Christendom today over whether the infamous 70th Week of Daniel’s Prophecy has taken place or is yet FUTURE???!!! And it’s sad indeed that the 660 Million Evangelical Christians of today are DIVIDED as to whether “the Messiah the Prince” spoken of in Daniel 9:27 was Christ who has already come to inaugurate His Kingdom for THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST– or if Daniel’s 70thWeek is yet to be fulfilled after a Pre-Trib Rapture. And it’s even more sad to think that so many Evangelical Christians are still DIVIDED over whether the “prince” that is spoken of in Daniel 9:27 is JESSUS CHRIST or “THE ANTICHRIST”!!!
THANKFULLY – Christ has REVEALED the TRUTH to me and I am one of the 660 Million Evangelical Christians who believes that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME prophesied in Daniel 9:27. And CLEARLY the purpose of His Coming the 1st time was to confirm the New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us “Elect and Chosen” in His Book of Life which is a mission now accomplished!!!
I also believe that when the Disciples came to ask Jesus what would be the sign of His coming again and THE END OF THE WORLD – that we are TODAY living in the fulfillment of all of those SIGNS now converging together as they never have before in Human History. And from Christ’s Apocalyptic Discourse recorded in Matthew Chapter 24 -- that means that we are close to THE END OF THE WORLD. And it also means that we are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION NOW!!! For Christ said that “immediately AFTER the Great Tribulation” that THE RAPTURE of His “Elect” and the JUDGMENT of the unsaved world will take place on the LAST DAY of this Human Race with Christ pouring out the LAST 7th PLAGUE that will result in this Earth and Universe being destroyed by FIRE!!!
HONESTLY -- the advancing of Christ’s Kingdom was never prophesied to be such that the Church would one day make the World righteous – HARDLY!!! It was prophesied that “the Messiah the Prince” would come to make righteous an “Elect” 1/3 REMNANT from the World whom He would call and draw into His Kingdom. And that through the preaching of His Word – He would save and “seal” and make a New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us in His Book of Life as Christ REVEALED to Daniel in his 70th Week Prophecy. For Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that once the Great Commission is complete with all the Nations of the World having been evangelized with the Gospel of Christ – and once everyone in Christ’s Book of Life has been born on Earth to be saved by Christ – THEN He would take His Restraint off of Satan and LOOSE him to fight one Final Spiritual Battle. And that THEN THE WORLD WOULD END at His 2nd Coming when He poured out the Last 7th Plague which is also the 3rd WOE on Satan and his Kingdom!!! That when the 7th Angel sounds the Trumpet that then “TIME WOULD BE NO MORE” as John prophesied in Revelation 10:6-7!!!
But to make THE GREAT DIVIDE even worse – Man’s popular Eschatology -- which is based upon Dispensational Pre-Millennialism -- teaches that there are 3 Comings of Christ. All I can say is “REALLY”???!!! Is that what “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology really prophesied???!!! The answer is “NO” – but regardless of what Christ’s True Eschatology teaches -- Dispensationalists teach that there are 3 Comings of Christ with the 1st Coming at His Birth. And then there is His 2nd Coming at the “supposed” Pre-Trib Rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation. And finally the 3rd Coming is when Dispensationalists teach that Christ returns to Earth to LITERALLY and PHYSICALLY reign on Earth with THE JEWS as His “Chosen People” for a LITERAL 1000 years from a rebuilt 3rd Temple in Jerusalem. This they teach is taken from Revelation Chapter 20 when John prophesies:
“And I saw thrones, and they set upon them, and Judgment was given unto them. And I saw the souls of them which were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God, and which had not worshipped THE BEAST, neither his image, neither has received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands, and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” (Revelation 20:4)
But the obvious problem with Man’s False Eschatology – is that there is nothing in Scripture to justify that there are 3 Comings of Christ!!! For John EXPLICITLY prophesied that he saw THE SOULS of those who have been martyred which doesn’t always mean a physical death – but more accurately means dying to self to live for Christ. In other words -- he saw “the souls” of those that had given their lives to serve Christ as His Witness on Earth which is what a Christian is called to do. And with this verse Christ wanted to convey to those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that had been saved that we would be reigning in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” until we died or until THE RAPTURE. While those saved who had ALREADY died on Earth John saw were reigning in Heaven with Christ. But this prophesy is EXPLICITLY speaking of “THE SOULS” of us “Elect”– NOT of our bodies – for NO ONE has a new resurrected body yet – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
In this 7 th vision of John’s -- Christ is painting a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Himself as the Messenger of the Covenant who CAME from Heaven to bind Satan that the New Covenant Church could be built. And John saw THE SOULS of those saved and martyred raised up to reign with Christ on thrones either on Earth if they were still alive – or in Heaven. While the unsaved John saw lying silently in their graves until the 2nd Coming when EVERYONE who has ever lived on this Earth will be raised back to life to witness Christ’s GLORIOUS 2nd Coming.
And with the 7 visions given to John – the 3 Comings of Christ just can’t be Biblically validated. For according to Christ’s TRUE ESCHATOLOGY -- there was His 1st Coming that fulfilled the prophecy of Daniel 9:27 when He CAME as “the Messiah the Prince” to confirm the New Covenant which covers his birth and ministry. After which He ascended to Heaven to Reign in the SPIRITUAL Kingdom of Heaven that was inaugurated at the Cross. And we “Elect” whose souls were saved and raised with Christ when He rose from the Death have been reigning with Christ in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” on Earth ever since just as it was prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week – that we would reign with Christ until THE CONSUMMATION. For when we are IN CHRIST on Earth – then we are
IN HEAVEN on Earth!!!
CLEARLY – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches only 2 Comings of Christ. The 1st one at his birth and ministry -- and then there is the 2nd Coming of Christ to Rapture those of us Remnant 1/3 “Elect” that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah He would save recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 that are all now saved and part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And on the very same DAY it is prophesied that Christ will also Judge the 2/3 Remnant of this World’s population that He REVEALED to Zechariah would NOT BE SAVED by Him. This takes place at the completion of the New Covenant period of the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy which is where we are TODAY. It is the 2nd Coming of Christ that Matthew Chapter 24 is talking about – NOT His 3rd Coming after He supposedly comes to Rapture the Church in a Pre-Trib Rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins as Dispensationalists teach!!!
What Christ prophesies in His True Eschatology -- is that His 2nd Coming is the LAST Coming because it is announced by the sounding of the LAST TRUMPET recorded in Matthew 24:3. And obviously there are NO MORE Trumpets sounding after the LAST TRUMPET which takes place at THE END OF THE WORLD when Death will be swallowed up in Victory as Paul prophesied from Christ recorded in 1st Cor. 15:54. And when John prophesied for Christ that “TIME WILL BE NO MORE” recorded in Revelation 10:6-7 and Revelation 21:4 when he was prophesying THE END OF THE WORLD. And to prophesy that The Church will NOT have to go through the Great Tribulation and that after the Pre-Trib Rapture that there will be 7 years of Tribulation and then Christ will return and the World will go on for another 1000 more years after the 7th and LAST TRUMPET -- is to BE AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD pure and simple – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
The CRYPTIC MEANING of “The Gog and Magog Battle” is
Man AT WAR With Christ and His Word!!!
Make no mistake – Professed Christians who substitute the words of their Gospel and Eschatology for Christ’s Words and True Gospel and Eschatology when those words DENY – CONTRADICT – DISTORT and CHALLENGE Christ’s Words -- are really AT WAR with Christ just like Hananiah was at that time of Judgment for teaching God’s people to trust in LIES. And we should NOT think that Christ has changed – for He is still the same God as He was in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s day when His Congregation were rebelling against Him and trusting in Man’s Words over the words of
Christ’s True Prophets like Jeremiah.
And when Hananiah stood up and declared to Christ’s Congregation that they would NOT have to go through 70 years of Babylonian Captivity for their unfaithfulness to Him -- how is that any different from our “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of today who prophesy that THE CHURCH will NOT have to go through the Great Tribulation but will be Raptured in a Pre-Trib Rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins???!!! I mean – doesn’t Christ have every right to pronounce the same judgment on them that He pronounced on Hananiah when He had Jeremiah proclaim to Hananiah these pretty condemning words:
“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 (which is SIN!!!) against the Lord.’ ” So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.” (that should make every Christian stop and think before they encourage others to REBEL against what Christ says is TRUE!!!) (Jer. 28:12-17)
CLEARLY Man’s Eschatology contradicts Christ’s True Eschatology and is teaching Christians to BELIVE LIES today. For John prophesied that “Armageddon” which is also called “The Gog and Magog Battle” -- is the Final Eschatological Battle between Christ and SATAN – NOT a Military Battle of Nations coming against the Nation of Israel in the Middle East as Man’s False Eschatology teaches relentlessly!!! And John describes – albeit in HIGHLY CRYPTIC LANGUAGE – this last “little season” of Satan now RULING THE WHOLE WORLD when Satan turns his full wrath upon Christ and those of us “Elect” who exist in Christ’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” here on Earth going through this Final Spiritual Battle!!! FORTUNATELY for us living today in this Final Spiritual Battle -- John prophesies that Satan and his Army will be DEFEATED by Christ casting Satan and his Army called “Magog” into the Lake of Fire as John prophesied in his 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20.
And what we need to understand is that John saw that the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments are SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS that Christ pours out on those of Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon which DECEIVES those in League with Satan to MAKE WAR with Christ and those of us “Elect” in Christ’s Christian Army on Earth today. For this Final Spiritual Battle MUST take place before THE RAPTURE occurs on the LAST DAY!!! In other words -- Christ must 1st DEFEAT SATAN before this World ENDS. And we in His Christian Army are here on Earth to help Him do just that – which means that NO ONE is being Raptured until this Final Spiritual Battle is over!!!
And that is WHY Christ has John paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of today’s Final Battle so that we “Elect” would know that 200 MILLION DEMONS were also LOOSED along with SATAN to go out with Satan to DECEIVE THE NATIONS to be in REBELLION against Christ in this Final Rebellion of TODAY. And aren’t we NOW TODAY seeing “the Elites” in Satan’s Kingdom coming against us “Elect” of Christ’s Kingdom trying to kill and silence our witness of THE TRUTH of these End-Times when we read this HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE from John which describes today’s Final Spiritual Battle:
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the Great River Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of THE KINGS FROM THE EAST might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the Dragon, out of the mouth of THE BEAST, and out of the mouth of the FALSE PROPHET. (which represents Satan’s Vast Army of FALSE PROPHETS promoting his DOCTRINES OF DEMONS TODAY!!!) For they are SPIRITS OF DEMONS, performing signs, which go out to the Kings of the Earth and of the WHOLE WORLD, to gather them to the battle of that Great Day of God Almighty.” (which of course is today’s Final Spiritual Battle of “Armageddon” which also is called “The Gog and Magog Battle”!!!) (Rev. 16:12-14)
HONESTLY -- how I ended my last Commentary is what Christ’s Holy Spirit is saying to all of us who claim His Name today. That we Professed Christians had better make sure that we are FIGHTING WITH CHRIST – and NOT AGAINST HIM AND HIS TRUE ESCHATOLOGY!!! For those fighting against Christ and making His people trust in LIES just like Hananiah did may well end up just like Hananiah!!! And that’s WHY Daniel’s 2nd Half of the 70th Week Prophecy REVEALS this time of the Final Spiritual Battle when SATAN has now DECEIVED those who think they are serving the God of Israel at Christ’s 2nd Coming just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees were deceived at Christ’s 1stComing when they too were AT WAR with Christ about who “the Prince” of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy was – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy tells us what happened to the Pharisees and the Sadducees at Christ’s 1st Coming when they fought against Christ and His teachings about the Kingdom of Heaven. For Daniel prophesied from Christ just what took place -- their DESOLATION was determined and they were JUDGED by God with SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS happening to them. And that is what is meant in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy when we read: “seal up the visions and the prophecy” in Daniel 9:24. In other words – they were NOT given the Spiritual eyes to see THE TRUTH. And it was CHRIST HIMSELF who left the City of Jerusalem DESOLATE because of their WARFARE with Him. For clearly -- SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS was His Judgment upon them – AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!!
In other words – they brought JUDGMENT on themselves by being AT WAR with Christ and His Word forcing Him to finally say to them: “Behold, your House is left unto you DESOLATE” – which meant that they would be “cut off” and “cast out” of the Kingdom of God FOREVER just like Hananiah was!!! And Christ was not only prophesying that to just those alive at that time in the LITERAL City of Jerusalem – but also to the 2/3 Remnant of this World when He prophesied this TRUTH: “Therefore I tell you that the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.” (Matthew 21:43)
CLEARLY – there are 2 SEEDS of Mankind and 2 SPIRITUAL KINGDOMS in this Human Race. And by Christ’s either choosing to save us or NOT TO SAVE -- we have ALL existed in this World in either our saved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” if Christ chose to save us – or in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon” in an unsaved soul existence in Satan’s Kingdom if He chose NOT to save us. And that’s WHY one could say that it is Christ Himself who is really at the CENTER of THE GREAT DIVIDE that has always existed in this World between the SEED OF SATAN
and the SEED OF CHRIST!!!
For the Bible teaches that from the time of the rebellion of SATAN before the foundation of the World which Satan caused to spill over into Man’s dimension in the Garden of Eden -- that ENMITY between CHRIST’S SEED and SATAN’S SEED has caused ongoing SPIRITUAL WARFARE between those of us of the Kingdom of Christ and those of the Kingdom of Satan which is prophesied to last until the VERY LAST DAY!!! And lest we forget – this is exactly what Christ prophesied when He said:
“Do not think that I came to bring peace on Earth. I did NOT come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.” (which is what a martyr is – one who dies to SELF to live for Christ!!!) (Matthew 10:34-39)
And make no mistake Daniel 9:26 prophesies: “The people of the ruler who will come will DESTROY the City and the Sanctuary. (And) THE END will come like a flood, and DESOLATIONS have been decreed.” THINK ABOUT IT -- Christ was trying to convey that this prophecy was being FULFILLED at His 1st Coming!!! For the “overflowing army” that came against Christ who HATED HIM and fought against Him and were AT WAR with Him were what the Bible calls “the Jews of the flesh” who are those who are of THE SEED OF SATAN!!! And that included the Pharisees and the Sadducees who taught the Congregation of Christ to trust in THE LIE that He was NOT “the Messiah the Prince” that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy prophesied would come!!!
And the 7 WOES that Christ pronounced on the “so called” Esteemed Religious Jewish Leaders at His 1st Coming only FORESHADOW these LAST 3 WOES that Christ is pouring out upon all the “so called” Religious Leader of TODAY who are DIVIDING the Congregation of Christ again. For they are teaching the Congregation of God to believe that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is yet FUTURE and only for THE JEWS -- which is A LIE!!!
The “Elites” Today are Sons of Perdition Who Want to Build an Earthly Kingdom
Where THEY Rule as GOD!!!
From the beginning of time those in LEAGUE with Satan have been in REBELLION against Christ whether they realize it or NOT. For Satan has deceived them to think that THEY ARE GOD and can rule themselves as the King of their own Kingdoms instead of serving Christ in His. THINK ABOUT IT – wasn’t this rebellious Anti-Christ Spirit present in Cain and Korah and then sadly even in Judas who were all SONS OF PERDITION???!!! And hasn’t every SON OF PERDITION refused to be Governed by Christ in their rebellion because they have the UNSOUND REPROBATE MIND of SATAN -- and NOT the MIND OF CHRIST???!!! Everyone of Satan’s SEED is in reality “The Lawless Man” that Paul spoke of in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2. For those of THE SEED OF SATAN could care less about keeping the Laws of Christ but want THEMSELVES to be GOD and KING in the Temple of God!!!
I mean – isn’t that WHY Cain killed his own brother Abel – and WHY Korah wanted to displace Moses – and sadly WHY Judas betrayed Christ???!!! And isn’t that also WHY the Pharisees and the Sadducees fought so hard against Christ and His Word because they wanted others to think that they were the rightful heirs of the Kingdom of God and Christ was an IMPOSTER???!!! And because of their REBELLION – didn’t that lead eventually to them falsely arresting Christ which also led to His crucifixion at His 1stComing???!!! And isn’t that what is still going on TODAY when the “Elites” want to displace those of us who are of CHRIST’S SEED who want to be and are trying with Christ’s help to be “THE LAWFUL MAN” as opposed to “THE LAWLESS MAN”???!!!
Those of the SEED OF SATAN will never change and will always want to rule this World themselves as the King of their own Kingdom which started back in Nimrod’s Day – THINK ABOUT IT!!! And the LAWLESSNESS of today is a result of Christ LOOSING SATAN to rule the WHOLE WORLD. It’s almost as if Christ were saying to those in REBELLION against Him – “You want a license to sin – FINE!!! I’ll LOOSE Satan on you and you can sin all you want and see what that will buy you!!!” And now we are seeing the RESULT of Man’s LAWLESSNESS – for the WHOLE WORLD now is experiencing a TOTAL breakdown of LAW AND ORDER!!!
Christ is Coming Back to END SATAN’S RULE of This World FOREVER!!!
When we compare Scripture with Man’s ever-so-popular Eschatology of Christ Returning to Earth to reign for a 1000 years – THAT is just NOT going to happen AT ALL!!! Instead what we see is Christ DEFEATING Satan and his SEED in one Final Spiritual Battle that we are in NOW -- and THEN the LAST TRUMPET sounding which takes place on the LAST DAY which results in THE END OF THE WORLD – NOT the beginning of Christ’s Millennial Kingdom!!! But Dispensationalists beside teaching that there are 3 Comings of Christ -- say that the sounding of the trumpet of 1st Corinthians 15:51 is NOT the same TRUMPET prophesied by Christ in Matthew 24 – UNBELIEVEABLE!!!
For there is NO contradiction in Christ’s Word. Contradictions only come when some try and force Christ’s Word to say something that it doesn’t really say adding to THE GREAT DIVIDE in Christendom today. For while Christ’s Word says that “immediately AFTER the Great Tribulation” that He will Return to Rapture His “Elect” and to Judge Satan and his SEED and that THEN THE WORLD WILL END – Dispensationalists say “NO”!!!
It’s almost UNREAL that Man’s Eschatology teaches that the trumpet in Matthew 24 takes place AFTER the “LAST TRUMPET” prophesied by Paul who wrote from the Lord: “Behold, I tell you a MYSTERY: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed -- in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMPET. For the (LAST!!!) Trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” (1st Cor. 15:51-54) And isn’t this the RAPTURE prophesied in 1st Thessalonians 4:17???!!!
And not to be disrespectful – but aren’t Dispensationalists calling Christ’s Word UNTRUE by privately interpreting 1st Corinthians and 1st Thessalonians as “Not Really” the LAST TRUMPET” which CAUSES THE GREAT DIVIDE to be even GREATER TODAY???!!! One has to ask themselves how Christians who say they LOVE Christ can be so unfaithful to His True Eschatology???!!! And of course the answer is – because they know that if Matthew 24’s trumpet isn’t AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture which they promote so passionately – and if Paul is really prophesying THE LAST TRUMPET in 1st Cor. 15:51-54 along with 1st Thess. 4:17 -- then their whole theory of the Pre-Trib Rapture before the Great Tribulation is totally bankrupt – REALLY!!! But CLEARLY -- Matthew 24 declares that THE RAPTURE takes place “immediately after the Great Tribulation” which is obviously going on NOW!!! HONESTLY – this line of reasoning sounds just like the question that Satan posed to Adam and Eve when he cunningly asked them: “Did God really say”???!!! Only Dispensationalists are saying “Did God really say that are only 2 Comings and the LAST TRUMPET is really
the LAST TRUMPET???!!!
If Christ’s Word is TRUE – and of course IT IS!!! – THEN the trumpet of Matthew 24 must also be the LAST TRUMPET which takes place according to Christ’s True Eschatology AFTER THE GREAT TIBULATION BEFORE the Rapture takes place. THINK ABOUT IT -- it’s pretty obvious that Christ had Paul prophesy the same thing in 1st Thessalonians and 1st Corinthians about the LAST TRUMPET. And both prophesies are talking about the same time period which takes place AFTER this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION. And that means that the Final Day of Judgment and the Rapture take place on the VERY SAME LAST DAY at the very same Last Trumpet!!!! And that means that THE END OF THIS WORLD is right on the Horizon – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
But when Dispensationalists are asked to explain their obvious contradiction of Scripture about how many Comings of Christ there are and how many trumpet sounds -- they will either say you are a FALSE PROPHET for disagreeing with them -- which I have been called. Or they say that you only want to DIVIDE the Church. But hasn’t Christ ALREADY divided Mankind by choosing HIS SEED and NOT choosing those of Satan’s SEED???!!! And isn't standing up for THE TRUTH of Christ’s Word what we of Christ’s SEED are called to do???!!! So those who disagree with Christ’s Word are clearly AT WAR with CHRIST AND HIS WORD which is what the Gog and Magog Battle is!!!
All Scripture agrees that Christ’s 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE are on the LAST DAY at the LAST TRMPET. For over and over and over again Christ makes it explicitly clear that the “LAST TRUMPET” is in fact THE END OF THE WORLD. And the only way to believe in a Pre-Trib Rapture before the Great Tribulation which will end with Christ LITERALLY reigning for another 1000 years AFTER THE GREAT TRIBULATION -- is to DENY – CONTRADICT – DISTORT – AND CHALLENGE what “The Rapture Truth” REVEALS in Christ’s True Eschatology!!! For Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that when the 7th Angel sounds the trumpet as we read in John’s 3rd vison -- that it’s THE END OF THE WORLD when we read: “Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in Heaven, saying, “The Kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” (Revelation 11:15)
And Christ has John confirm THIS TRUTH when we read: “But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound the MYSTERY of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.” (Revelation 10:6-7)
And the MYSTERY of Christ can only be achieved when we see Him face to face and know even as we are known as Paul wrote in 1st Cor. 13:12. HONESTLY – Christ’s True Eschatology couldn’t be more clear -- that when the RAPTURE TAKES PLACE it will be on the LAST DAY at the LAST TRUMPET and will also be THE END OF THE WORLD – NOT the beginning of a 1000 year reign of Christ from a rebuilt 3rdTemple in Jerusalem!!! And when Professed Christians fight against Christ’s Word -- isn’t that just what Christ had Paul prophesy about “The Man of Lawlessness and Sin” – that he would stand up in the House of God and declare Himself to be GOD by declaring that his Word is THE TRUTH and Christ’s Word should be ignored???!!!
HONESTLY -- when professed Christians say that the World will go on for another 1000 more years after a 7 year Tribulation period that Christ NEVER prophesied as TRUTH -- how is that any different from “The Elites” who are ignoring Christ’s Word altogether and trying to “Build this World Back Better” WITHOUT GOD by declaring themselves TO BE GOD – aren’t both groups AT WAR with Christ and His Word???!!!
Christ REVEALED to Daniel that SATAN is “THE ANTICHRIST” and also
“The King of the North” That He is Fighting in This Final Spiritual Battle
The Bible explicitly teaches that Human Government was originally ordained by GOD to maintain proper organization and to administer HIS LAWS on Earth. And when men no longer follow GOD’S LAWS or even Man’s Laws – then History shows that all HELL will break loose and Governments will FAIL which is just what we see happening all around the Globe today!!! But what should we do if we follow Christ and now have to co-exist with those who are committing CRIMINAL ACTS even in HIGH PLACES of our own Government???!!! I mean -- how can we make right the sad fact that the Courts all the way up to the SUPREME COURT refuse to administer any Justice or to prosecute any of those who were engaged with the Election Fraud that took place in the Presidential Election and continue to take place now that laws are either being changed for criminal intent or not obeyed AT ALL???!!!
THANKFULLY just as Christ REVEALED to Daniel and John in their visions -- Satan will NOT rule this World forever. For we have “The Blessed Hope” that while we 1/3 Remnant that Christ has Saved will have to Co-exist with Satan and the 2/3 Unsaved Remnant on this Earth until the LAST DAY – Christ’s DELIVERANCE at THE RAPTURE and the JUDGMENT of those in League with Satan on the same LAST DAY is right on the Horizon now according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!! For Christ will have His vengeance on all those who have persecuted His “Elect” since the Day of Noah!!
And according to Christ and His Word we know for sure that what He REVEALED to Daniel in the 1st of his last 4 visions about SATAN – that Satan will PAY along with those in League with him when Daniel prophesied from Christ about Heaven’s Court and HEAVEN’S JUSTICE SYSTEM:
“But the Court shall be seated, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and destroy it forever. (referring to SATAN!!!) Then the Kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the Kingdoms under the whole Heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.” (referring to of course Christ’s Kingdom!!!) (Daniel 7:26-27)
And Daniel is shown in his 1st of his last 4 visions that Satan who is called “the little horn” starts off from small beginnings and grows in power and might. And just as King Nebuchadnezzar ruled over the World at the time of Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s time – Christ is establishing him as the figure of the coming “ANTICHRIST” who is SATAN who IS NOW RULING the WHOLE WORLD before Christ’s 2nd Coming. And the typification of “the King of the North” coming against Christ’s Army is the same typification that John was also shown of SATAN as John portrays “Armageddon” as the Final Eschatological Battle between Christ and SATAN.
SATAN goes by many names – for Daniel called him “the little horn” and he is given the name of “Gog” in Ezekiel’s description of this Final Spiritual Battle called “Gog and Magog.” And that battle is also given the name of “Armageddon” by John led by who John calls “THE BEAST” and “The Dragon” and “the 8th King” who is the King of the United Nations today in Satan’s Final Epoch rule of this World and also “The King of the North” in Daniel’s vision. And Daniel and Ezekiel and John all saw in their visions that Christ would again turn SATAN -- who King Nebuchadnezzar was a “type” of – along with his Babylonian Army of “Magog” which is all of the 2/3 unsaved Remnant of Satan’s Army TODAY -- LOOSE on His unfaithful Congregation.
In other words -- what Christ did in the Old Testament days with His unfaithful Congregation by LOOSING King Nebuchadnezzar and his Babylonian Army on His unfaithful Congregation only FORESHADOWS the Judgment being poured out by these LAST 3 WOES today. For Christ has now LOOSED the King of Babylon this time who is SATAN on His unfaithful Congregation again. And just like His Faithful Prophets of the Old Testament – we who are faithful to Christ like Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah were -- are having to co-exist with the SEED OF SATAN in this World that he is now
ruling over 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.” ’ ” (no Earthly King could have such dominion over even the Animal Kingdom – which is WHY this has to have a CRYPTIC MEANING of the humans who Christ has NOT saved that have “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” invisibly written upon them by Christ Himself!!!)
CLEARLY – Daniel was shown that “the little horn” which is SATAN -- will grow “exceeding great toward the South and the East and the Pleasant Land” and would advance from the North which is WHY Daniel portrays SATAN as the King of the North recorded in Daniel 11:36-45. And Daniel saw that Satan’s campaign to neutralize the Gospel of Christ and to overcome His Christian Army by silencing and killing our witness will take in Egypt to the South – and Mesopotamia to the East and the Pleasant Land which represents the area of Jerusalem in the Middle East. And not coincidently the area covered is CRYPTIC LAGUAGE to represent the same Promised Land given to Abraham when we read: “Unto thy SEED have I given this land, from the River of Egypt unto the Great River, the River Euphrates.” (Gen. 15:18) And the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of this area was to convey that “the little horn” who is SATAN will wax exceedingly GREAT wherever Christian Congregations are found!!!
And HONESTLY – aren’t we seeing TODAY that Satan is using his increased power now that Christ has taken His restraint off of him and LOOSED him from Hell to fight this Final Spiritual Battle???!!! I mean – isn’t SATAN now using those increased powers to NEUTRALIZE the witness of Christians everywhere on Earth today which is causing this time of GREAT TRIUBLATION for us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST???!!!
How Christ Used The Statue of SATAN That He Gave to King Nebuchadnezzar
To Prophesy Satan’s Final Epoch Rule of TODAY!!!
According to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology it is the Lord’s own Congregation where this Final Spiritual Battle is raging the most. For this is when Satan deceives those who are NOT firmly grounded in Christ’s Word and will “cut them off” on the LAST DAY’S final separation of Christ’s True “Elect” and “Chosen.” In other words – this World has now come under the Final Judgment of God. And Satan is being used as Christ’s instrument of Judgment in LOOSING him to rule this WHOLE WORLD now.
And it is during this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when Christ REVEALED to Daniel that He would be CLEANSING His Temple of all those in rebellion against Him and His Word!!! And He does this by pouring out the 1st 2 WOES which are the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments on Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon causing the Political and Religious Leaders who we call “the Elites” to be TOTALLY BLINDED that they are under the MIND CONTROL of SATAN!!! And I don’t meant to be disrespectful – but The Pope -- by signing off on the 2030 Agenda which promotes the “Great Reset” -- is a good example of Religious Leaders being BLINDED!!!
And lest we forget -- it was SATAN who was the ruler of the LITERAL Country of Babylon in Daniel’s Day. For the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar was explained to Daniel as SATAN being the figure of the Statue in the dream who would rule the last 4 Empires of this World with King Nebuchadnezzar being the first King and Satan HIMSELF being “the 8th” King of this last 4th Empire of Satan. And Christ had John prophesy also that SATAN would rule this WHOLE WORLD NOW just as He had REVEALED to Daniel. That not only would Satan be the King over the last 4 Kingdoms – but that he had also been the King over ALL the previous 7 Kingdoms of this World and will arise to be the 8th and LAST KING ruling over especially the unsaved in all the Nations of the World today
when John prophesied for Christ:
“There are also seven Kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. (which refers to Satan “short little season” of rule in this time of GREAT TRIBULATION today!!!) THE BEAST that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, (meaning the 8th King!!!) and is of the seven (previous Kingdoms that Satan also ruled over!!!), and is going to perdition.” (Rev. 17:10-11)
Undoubtedly Christ gave King Nebuchadnezzar his dream of the Statue of SATAN to REVEAL to His “Elect” that He was establishing King Nebuchadnezzar’s as a “type” of SATAN. For Daniel was told that the head of Gold ruled over ALL people of this World irrespective of where they lived – along with ALL the beasts of the Earth and birds of the sky. When CLEARLY the scope of this rule was much wider than ANY Earthly King had ever achieved or could ever achieve in the Future. But there is “the 8thKing” that both Daniel and John saw in their visions who was in the SPIRITUAL REALM that did obtain Spiritual Dominion of this WHOLE WORLD in the Garden of Eden – and that was of course SATAN who inherited SPIRITUAL DOMINION over all of Creation when he successfully DECEIVED Adam and Eve to disobey Christ!!!
And it should come as no surprise that Christ would use the most famous King of this World who was Nebuchadnezzar to “typify” SATAN’S rule of the Old Testament at it’s height and the Final Rule of Satan over the United Nations TODAY!!! Nor should it come as a surprise that Christ is using the STANDOUT NATIONS of their day to “typify” the successive Epochs of Satan’s rule in the Earth beginning with Satan as the Prince of Babylon . CLEARLY -- this huge statue of SATAN was meant to convey that Satan would be ruling every successive Epoch rule of this World until the 2nd Coming of Christ. That’s WHY Christ depicts SATAN as the ruler of this WHOLE WORLD which include the 7 previous Kingdoms with his last 4 Epoch rules of this World depicted in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the Statue of Satan.
In other words – Satan was the TRUE “Prince of Babylon” in King Nebuchadnezzar’s day. And what Christ wanted to portray was that while King Nebuchadnezzar was the LITERAL EARTHLY KING – all the world in this time was under SATAN’S POWER – including UNFAITHFUL JUDAH. And clearly Daniel and Ezekiel can attest to that TRUTH because they were both shackled and drug off into 70 years of Babylonian Captivity which was firmly under Satan’s power also!!!
Likewise – the rule of the various Medo-Persian Kings are said to be under the single banner of “the Prince of Persia” who again was ALSO SATAN who has ruled over and impelled the evil desires of the Nations of the World since the beginning of time!!! Thus we read of SATAN being the head of Gold of the Statue and the Prince of Babylon during the Babylonian Era. And of course SATAN was the breast and arms of sliver of the Statue and the “Prince of Persia” during the Medo-Persian rule. Not to mention that he was the belly and thighs of brass and was the “Prince of Greece” during the Greek Era.
And TODAY Satan’s FINAL 4th Epoch rule of this World is represented by the legs of the Statue having feet partly of “iron” and partly of “clay” which REVALS that in Satan’s final rule of this WHOLE WORLD now that SATAN is using the “iron” representing THE DEMONIC STRENGTH of the 200 MILLION DEMONS LOOSED along with him from HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that the WHOLE WORLD is in right now!!! I mean – think about it – aren’t we TODAY CLEARLY seeing that Satan is using his demons which is the “iron” of the statue to mix with the “clay” which are the unsaved. And this mixing of THE DEMONIC with Humankind is NOW fostering the END-TIME WICKEDNESS AND LAWLESSNESS of the “LAWLESS MAN” that Christ had Paul prophesy we would see when Christ took His Had of restraint off of Satan and allowed him to rule the WHOLE WORLD!!! This is “The Abomination of Desolation” that Christ prophesied we “Elect” would see and we are SEEING IT TODAY!!!
Daniel Was Shown That Christ Would Rise Up and Fight SATAN
Before THE END OF THE WORLD in This Final Spiritual Battle That We are in Now!!!
CLEARLY – Daniel knew “the Messiah the Prince” who came in the 1st Half of his 70th Week Prophecy would be THE SAVIOR of his people – NOT AN EVIL ANTICHRIST!!! Daniel didn’t know Christ but he KNEW that He was “the same Messiah the Prince” that would come to save the Remnant of His SEED. And Daniel was also shown that He would come to fulfill the 2nd Half of his 70th Week Prophecy after the one who was “The Abomination of Desolation” who is SATAN was REVEALED and ruling
the WHOLE WORLD.
And what is so MORE IMPORTANT to understand -- is that Daniel was given a vision of CHRIST who is also called our “Great Prince” who is fighting for us “Elect” TODAY in this Final Spiritual Battle. For clearly Daniel prophesied from the Lord in this last vision given to Him that we “Elect” would be “Blessed” if we made it to the very LAST DAY of the Great Tribulation which is the 1,335th day. But BEFORE that LAST DAY of this Human Race – Daniel was told to prophesy that Christ would rise up and fight for us “Elect” in this Final Spiritual Battle going on right NOW when we read:
“At that time Michael shall stand up,
The Great Prince who stands watch over the sons of your people;
And there shall be a time of trouble,
Such as never was since there was a Nation,
Even to that time.
And at that time your people shall be delivered,
Everyone who is found written in the Book.
And many of those who sleep in the dust of the Earth shall awake,
Some to everlasting life,
Some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Those who are wise shall shine
Like the brightness of the firmament,
And those who turn many to righteousness
Like the stars forever and ever.”
HONESTLY – it just can’t be reiterated enough that we are living in the times that Daniel prophesied from the Lord written in the prophecy in these verses above. And that Christ is the “Great Prince” in Daniel’s last of his 4 last visions of these End-Times who is also none other than “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME in the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. Only in this prophecy of the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy Christ goes by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Michael” which means:
“HE WHO IS ASSUREDLY GOD” or” is “certainly God”.
A whole Commentary could be written on this last vision of Daniel – but suffice it to say for now that the Name “Michael” in its Hebrew origin [miykael] means “He who is assuredly God.” This meaning is totally consistent with everything in Scripture that deals with the work of the messenger Michael. For Christ is the Chief Messenger and Archangel who has or will do all the things that are assigned to Michael who is “assuredly GOD”!!! Indeed-- Christ is the Messenger of God that is in charge of the Army of God who is leading this Final Spiritual Battle on Earth today. But I’ve run out of space again and will continue about Christ standing up to fight for us TODAY in this Great Tribulation in my next Commentary!!!
