Are THE JEWS Christ’s True “Chosen People” Who The Bible Calls “The Elect”???!!!
51% of U.S. Evangelicals Think They Are!!
December 12, 2021
The title of this Commentary is taken from an article posted on “The Christian Post” by Michael Gryboski on December 2, 2021entitled: “51% of US Evangelicals believe Jews are ‘still God’s chosen people’: poll.” And the reason WHY I’m writing this Commentary -- is because I find it sad indeed that so many Evangelicals have bought THE LIE of Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” Series based on Dispensational Pre-Millennialism that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is yet FUTURE and won’t be fulfilled until AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture of THE CHURCH which is just NOT TRUE!!! For Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy was meant for ALL of Christ’s “Elect and Chosen” which are definitely NOT just THE JEWS who Dispensationalists think are Christ’s only TRUE CHOSEN PEOPLE!!!
And because that is just NOT TRUE – that is WHY in this Commentary I pray that I can give an overwhelming amount of evidence in Scripture that demands a verdict that Christ Word teaches all throughout the Bible that there are 2 Seeds of Mankind. And that those that Christ chose to save are of HIS SEED and His “Elect” and part of His “Chosen Generation.” While those of SATAN’S SEED belong to Satan’s “Evil Generation” and are those Christ chose NOT TO SAVE. And that Christ Himself has put ENMITY between these 2 SEEDS of this Human Race until the VERY LAST DAY.
But HONESTLY – while the Bible teaches this very important TRUTH of the 2 SEEDS of Mankind -- one would think that this recent poll was taken in the 1st Century BEFORE the Cross – NOT in this 21st Century AFTER the Cross when we now have the COMPLETED CLOSED Word of Christ’s True Gospel which teaches that the cause of Christ Coming to Earth was to RESTORE a REMNANT of the Nation of Israel to God and to bring the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven to a REMNANT of Gentiles in all the Nations of the World. For Christ’s True Gospel teaches that the advancing of His Kingdom was never prophesied to be such that the Church would one day make the world righteous. It was prophesied that the Messiah would make righteous an “Elect Remnant” from the world whom He would call and save and then “seal” with His invisible “MARK OF SALVATION.” And that is EXACTLY what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah – that only a 1/3 Remnant of this World’s population would be saved which is recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 and one of the most important prophecies ever written -- but often ignored or mishandled.
CLEARLY – the whole Bible is the remarkable story of Christ saving and DELIVERING His “Chosen Elect” which started with a small remnant of Hebrew people -- but has today included a Remnant from every race and Nation on Earth. And the way that this 1/3 Remnant of the population of the World has been saved -- is by what Christ had Daniel prophesy in His 70th Week Prophecy. That He would come as “the Messiah the Prince” to save His people. And after the Cross we know that both Jews and Gentiles were reconciled together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – which was ALWAYS an integral part of Christ’s Salvation Plan. That He would come as “the Messiah the Prince” to save a Remnant of Gentiles as part of His “Elect” just as a Remnant of THE JEWS have been saved.
And CLEARLY – we know that by Christ’s death and resurrection Satan was DEFEATED and BOUND so that he was no longer able to deceive the Gentiles as Satan had done BEFORE the time of the Cross. And the MYSTERY of the Gospel was then REVEALED -- that the Gentiles would be a part of Christ’s Chosen “Elect” Generation and would make up the Holy Nation of “The Spiritual Israel of God” -- which was made manifest as Christ sent the Church out to Evangelize ALL the Nations to the ends of the Earth. And now that the World has been Evangelized and the fulness of the REMNANT of Gentiles in Christ’s Book of Life has come into the ONLY Nation that has ever had – “all Israel has been saved” just as prophesied. And TODAY Christ’s Holy Nation and His “Chosen Generation” and “Elect” clearly have been RESTORED when His Millennial Kingdom was inaugurated at the Cross which NOW includes both JEWS AND GENTILES which was ALWAYS Christ’s DIVINE PLAN OF SALVATION!!!
That’s WHY it just can’t be reiterated enough living as close to the 2nd Coming of “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME which was prophesied in Daniel 9:27 – that Christ is coming back to CONSUMMATE His Restored Millennial Kingdom and to RAPTURE us “Elect” living today now in this 21st Century whose saved souls were resurrected when Christ was resurrected at the Cross. And that means that the “Elect” are ALL of us who “the Messiah the Prince” came to save REGARDLESS of race. For Christ taught that we “Elect” are saved by GRACE and that He is NO RESPECTER of a person’s race when it comes to who He CHOSE to save before the foundation of the World!!! But UNFORTUNATELY -- the Devil is using “THE RACE CARD” in not just secular matters but also religious matters.
I mean – THINK ABOUT IT – isn’t Satan using RACE to DIVIDE Christendom Today???!!! For doesn’t this article from the Christian Post PROVE that part of THE GREAT DIVIDE today in Christendom is a result of Man’s False Eschatology DECEIVING Dispensationalists to believe that ALL of the Jews are Christ’s Chosen people by just having been born of the JEWISH RACE???!!! In all due respect – there’s just no denying that Dispensationalists sincerely believe that the Lord’s promise of an everlasting inheritance was made to a Middle Eastern Nation of geopolitical and genealogical stature which they think made ALL JEWS Christ’s True Chosen People by RACE. And that’s clearly WHY they preach relentlessly how the Holy Nation of Israel is defined by borders and by Nationality and by genealogical lineage – IN OTHER WORDS – by RACE – and NOT by God’s GRACE!!!
And according to this article from the Christian Post -- 51% of Evangelicals in the U.S. believe that THE JEWS are Christ’s TRUE “Chosen People.” And having ERRONEOUS BELIEFS is CLEARLY responsible in part for THE GREAT DIVIDE in Christendom today. For the U.S. is the home to the largest population of Evangelical Christians in the World -- which means that these Evangelical Christians define the word “Israel” all throughout the Bible NOT by Christ’s Word and True Eschatology -- but by who Famous Prophecy Authors like Tim LaHaye teach are God’s Holy People. And clearly – because Tim LaHaye and his Dispensational Colleagues have relentlessly taught that Christ has 2 Bodies of people which they claim are: 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The Church -- their definition of Israel differs from Christ’s definition of who is in His Holy Nation. And that sadly means that American Evangelical Christians are leading what Christ prophesied would be the Final Spiritual Battle called “The Gog and Magog Battle” against Him and His Message of who His “Elect” are today – THINK ABOUT IT!!!!
And it’s sad indeed that most Dispensationalists have NO problem challenging what Christ says in His True Gospel Message about Salvation and the Eschatology of these End-Times. For when their Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven and Eschatology disagrees with Christ’s True Gospel and Eschatology – they just say that it is “NON-ESSENTIAL” to being saved!!! REALLY???!!! THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MOMENT -- how could ANYTHING that Christ says be “non-essential” to salvation when the WHOLE WORD of God is PROPHETIC in that it is ALL 100% DIVINE TRUTH???!!!
And according to Christ’s DIVINE WORDS OF TRUTH -- what is indisputably – absolutely – and uncompromisingly ESSENTIAL to the Christian Faith is its Doctrine of Salvation – THINK ABOUT IT!!! I mean – what could be more ESSENTIAL to THE TRUTH than the Gospel of Christ when it comes to SALVATION???!!!
And if Dispensationalists have actually departed from the only way of Salvation which Christ taught – then they have believed A LIE and have fallen for a FALSE GOSPEL which is sadly a Gospel that clearly DENIES – CONTRADICTS – DISTORTS – and CHALLENGES what Christ’s Word says is TRUE about SALVATION. And that’s serious – for whoever buys into a False Gospel will end up believing in a false jesus of their own making. And they will NOT have a New Covenant Relationship with the Jesus of the Bible which takes away their sin of disbelief!!! Think about it -- no matter how many other important TRUTHS Dispensationalism proclaims – it can NOT be called Christian if it empties Christianity of its “ESSENTIAL TRUTHS” about Salvation. For WHO “the Messiah the Prince” came to save is the CORE TRUTH of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven. And clearly Christ taught that we are saved by His GRACE regardless of our RACE!!!
A “cult” is defined as a religion which claims to be Christian while emptying Christianity of that which is ESSENTIAL to it -- which is DEFINITELY the Doctrine of SALVATION. And Frankly when Dispensationalism claims that Christ has 2 Bodies of Believers BASED ON RACE -- and that the 70th Week of Daniel is a prophecy meant only for THE JEWS which they say has NOT been fulfilled yet – they have bought into a False Gospel and have fallen for Man’s FALSE ESCHATOLOGY!!! For clearly– just by being fortunate enough to have been born of Jewish descent does not insure that THE JEWS have “a one-way ticket to Heaven” and automatically are given “a get out of HELL FREE PASS” by Christ just for being born of THE JEWISH RACE when clearly Christ teaches that Salvation depends on His Grace – NOT ON RACE!!!
That’s WHY it just can’t be reiterated ENOUGH -- that the ESSENTIAL TRUTH of Salvation is that THE CAUSE of Christ coming to Earth was to restore only a REMNANT of the Nation of Israel to God and to bring the Light of the Gospel of the Millennial Kingdom that was inaugurated AND RESTORED at the Cross to only a Remnant of us Gentiles. And THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL is that we “Elect” SEED OF CHRIST have ALL NOW TODAY been reconciled together with both Jews and Gentiles being “the Elect” in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And when Dispensationalism DENIES THIS ESSENTIAL TRUTH -- that is what denies Dispensationalism any claim to Christianity AT ALL –
THINK ABOUT IT!!!
There can only be a Pre-Trib Rapture if There is a 7 year Tribulation Period
Based on Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy NOT being fulfilled yet!!!
John prophesied from Christ that the 2nd WOE of Spiritual Blindness is poured out on those REFUSING to believe the TRUE GOSPEL OF CHRIST. And that it would alert us “Elect” that Christ was “coming quickly” when he wrote: “The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.” (Revelation 11:14) And CLEARLY -- the pouring out of the 3rd WOE is the LAST 7thPLAGUE and the 7th Bowl Judgment which will be THE END OF THIS WORLD. And John makes NO MENTION of a Rapture taking place BEFORE these last 3 WOES are poured out!!! THINK ABOUT IT – the fact that so many Professed Christians have been BLINDED and DECEIVED into thinking that THE CHURCH will be Raptured BEFORE the Great Tribulation – is proof that this BLINDNESS comes from Christ pouring out the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments which is aimed at those who REFUSE to believe the Truth of His Gospel as Paul prophesied in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2!!!
And CLEARLY -- we are TODAY witnessing the SPIRITUAL DECLENSION that Christ prophesied would be the #1 SIGN of His 2nd Coming when this recent Poll REVEALS that of the 660 Million Evangelicals – at least 51% of American Evangelicals are DECEIVED to believe that Christ truly IS A RESPECTER OF PERSONS and that RACE matters to Him!!! When Peter said with Christ’s Holy Spirit indwelling him: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism.” (Acts 10:34) And Paul also wrote that we are not saved based on RACE but on God’s GRACE when he wrote: “For God does not show favoritism.” (Romans 2:11) And sadly by refusing to believe this TRUTH -- Christendom is now DIVIDED instead of being UNITED in the TRUTH that there is only THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – NOT 2 bodies!!!
And CLEARLY -- a VERY IMPORTANT TRUTH that those promoting the LIE that Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy is yet Future and only for THE JEWS haven’t considered – is that the Disciples and the Early Christians understood that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy was for everyone saved by GRACE. That Christ had reconciled BOTH Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST just as Christ had Paul prophesy when he wrote for the Lord the MYSTERY of the Gospel. And while maybe Daniel didn’t quite understand that his people would include THE GENTILES – Christ certainly REVEALED to the Disciples that it DID INCLUDE the Gentiles when we read that THE JEWS were NOT the only “Elect” and “Chosen” people of God when Christ had Paul write: “This MYSTERY is that the Gentiles are FELLOW HEIRS, members of THE SAME (ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST), and partakers of the Promise (of Eternal Life!!!) in Christ Jesus through the Gospel.” (Ephesians 3:6)
But SADLY what Christ’s Death accomplished with the MIDDLE WALL of separation between Jews and Gentiles being torn down -- has TODAY been put BACK UP by Dispensationalists continuing to DIVIDE THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST into 2 Bodies!!! And because of this GREAT DIVIDE within Christianity being accepted as Christ’s True Gospel – it is never emphasized that the veil in the Temple was split from top to bottom at the very moment of Christ’s DEATH at the Cross. And that was meant to REVEAL that a NEW WAY and a NEW ORDER of Spiritual Worship had replaced the Old Order of Ceremonial Worship with the NEW COVENANT OF GRACE that was confirmed by Christ’s Death on the Cross. And that NEW COVENANT OF GRACE is the Covenant made with “the many” prophesied in Daniel 9:27!!!
HONESTLY – even though Dispensationalists teach it relentlessly -- there will NEVER be a restoration of Judaism which was a CHRIST-REJECTING False Religion that Christ Himself fought so hard against – THINK ABOUT IT!!! And while THE JEWS have gathered as a Nation and are endeavoring today more than ever to restore their Temple and the Ceremonial Religious Order of the 1stCentury through their Priesthood of JEWISH PRIESTS – Christ as our High Priest has by His obedience unto DEATH fulfilled ALL of the Law which the Feast and Festival Days required!!!
And that’s WHY Christ’s True Gospel teaches that the New Way of SPIRITUAL WORSHIP after the Cross has replaced the OLD ORDER of Ceremonial Worship of Temple Priests and animal sacrifice and obeying the Feast and Festival Days for NOT ONLY THE JEWS – but also for THE GENTILES!!! And what the False Eschatology of Dispensationalism teaches is that the way was only opened for THE CHRUCH and is YET to be opened for the Nation of Israel as a WHOLE which is just NOT TRUE!!! Christ is NOT going to the Cross a 2nd Time – HARDLY!!! And that means that Dispensationalists have been DECEIVED to believe that there is a different path to Salvation for THE JEWS than for THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!! For they obviously have believed THE LIE that THE JEWS don’t need the Cross but are saved just by the geopolitical and genealogical stature of being born Jewish. That ALL JEWS are saved by RACE rather than GOD’S GRACE which is A LIE!!!
HONESTLY – while it took 300 men to hang the veil in the Old Testament Temple in Christ’s Day as Rabbinical Tradition reports – it only took the FALSE ESCHATOLOGY of Man spoken in ERROR by Dispensationalists to put that Middle Wall of Separation back up and UNDO what Christ came to Earth as “the Messiah the Prince” in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy to do. And CLEARLY – as we read in Daniel 9:24 what Christ accomplished at the Cross was FULFILLED for the 1/3 Remnant out of this World’s population that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 would be saved
AND ARE NOW TODAY SAVED!!!
Why The Nation of Israel in the Middle East is NOT
“The True Spiritual Israel of God” Which is Christ’s True Holy Nation!!!
CLEARLY – what “The Rapture Truth” REVEALS in Christ’s True Eschatology – is that what was prophesied to be accomplished at Christ’s 1stComing recorded in Daniel 9:24 was for THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which are those of us “Elect” of “The True Spiritual Israel of God.” And that Christ has now FULFILLED all that was prophesied for us “Elect” in Daniel 9:24 which prophesies that transgression would be withheld or restrained -- and that sin would be brought to an end or sealed up -- and that reconciliation for iniquity would be made to bring in everlasting righteousness for EVERYONE whose Name was written in Christ’s Book of Life – NOT just THE JEWS!!! And because so many of THE JEWS rejected Christ as “the Messiah the Prince” who HAD COME as was prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy -- we read that this vision given to Daniel was sealed up for them – meaning they were BLINDED as Judgment for rejecting Christ and His True Gospel!!! And because they were BLINDED that is WHY they also refused to accept the anointing of the Most Holy who was CHRIST “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME!!!
All this we read was determined to happen in these INFAMOUS 70 Weeks of the prophecy given to Daniel which has BEEN TAKING PLACE since Christ’s Ascension. For since that time Christ has been confirming His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” in His Book of Life just as we read recorded in Daniel 9:27!!! And we Evangelical Christians who believe that Christ was INDEED “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME – know and believe just as the Disciples and the Early Christians did that the Messiah’s appearing the 1st time was FULFILLED along with the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. I mean – think about it – if one believes that Daniel’s prophecy is yet FUTURE as Dispensationalists do -- then NO ONE has been saved yet – GOD FORBID!!!
CLEARLY -- according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology the Israel of God is NOT defined by genealogy. For being a true Israelite means anyone born of “the Seed” of Christ. And that means that “The True Spiritual Israel of God” is NOT defined by having a blood relationship to Jacob– but by having a blood relationship with CHRIST which only He can give!!! And His True Gospel teaches that the only Holy Nation that He has ever had are those He chose to save before the foundation of the World that today make up His True Eternal Universal Church. And this True Church of Christ is “The SPIRITUAL Israel of God” made up of THE SONS OF GOD who are of His seed and have a blood relationship with Him by being chosen by His GRACE -- regardless of RACE!!!!
Paul understood that the True Gospel of Christ teaches that the Eternal Covenant of God which is the New Covenant of Grace prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy recorded in Daniel 9:27 -- was NOT to those of the Nation of Israel after the flesh -- but was to the SEED OF CHRIST which is "The Spiritual Israel of God” who are those of us “Elect” indwelled by the “Spirit of Christ.” In other words – Christ is the true Israel of God and only those chosen by Christ to be IN HIM are His “Elect.”
CLEARLY -- Paul also knew from Christ’s Holy Spirit 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 they were without God’s light and that they sat in Spiritual Darkness. In other words – Paul knew and BELIEVED that only a REMNANT of them would be saved as Christ REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9. And he also knew from Scripture that at NO TIME in Human History was the WHOLE NATION of Israel ever saved. Which is WHY Paul believed that the advancing of Christ’s Kingdom was never prophesied to be such that the Church would one day make the world righteous – but that “the Messiah the prince” who CAME in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy would make righteous an “Elect remnant” from the world whom God would SAVE BY GRACE – NOT RACE!!!
In other words -- Paul knew what so many are DIVIDED over today. That the Evangelization of the world was NOT to save EVERYONE in the Nation of Israel or the WHOLE WORLD – HARDLY!!! For Christ’s True Gospel teaches that only “a 1/3 REMNANT” of this World at anytime in Human History has ever been chosen to be saved as Christ REVEALED to Zechariah. That while Christ came to save the world – He did NOT come to save EVERYONE in the world. And that’s what He was trying to REVEAL in the Garden of Eden – that there are 2 SEEDS of this Human Race
which make up the 2 Spiritual Kingdoms!!!
And what Dispensationalists call “Evil Replacement Theology” is just NOT TRUE because Christ has lost NO ONE or REPLACED any of us “Elect” that He chose to save before the foundation of the World. And when most of THE JEWS rejected Christ as “the Messiah the Prince” who was prophesied to come in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy – that was because they were NEVER CHOSEN to be part of Christ’s “Chosen Generation” and were BLINDED to the TRUTH. And that’s WHY Christ said that they no longer represented His True Covenanted Kingdom people. In other words -- 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 is the only Holy Nation that Christ has EVER HAD made up of people from ALL RACES and Nations on Earth!!!
And when Christ announced that “The Kingdom of God shall be taken from you and given to a Nation bearing the fruits of it” as we read recorded in Matthew 21:42-43 – what Christ was trying to convey was that EVERYONE from the LITERAL Nation of Israel from that point forward were no longer considered by Christ to be part of the True Covenanted Kingdom. That He was giving that honor and recognition to the True Spiritual Holy Nation of God and those of us in His Kingdom of Heaven that He chose to save before the foundation of the world which Christ taught were from EVERY RACE and Nation on Earth!!! That the Kingdom representation would from that time forward be found in the New Eternal Universal Church of Christ – NOT to be confused with the External Global Harlot Church described in the Book of Revelation!!!
Christ is the New Testament Temple
Which Means That A Rebuilt 3rd Temple Will Never Be Inhabited by Him!!!
The reason WHY the True Gospel of Christ teaches that “they are not all Israel who are of Israel” – is again a prophesy that only A 1/3 REMNANT of THE JEWS at any time in Human History have ever been saved as Christ REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9!!! And because of the unsaved 2/3 REMNANT’S rejection of Christ as “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME – Christ was declaring that the LITERAL -- or physical Holy Temple in Israel would no longer be the representation of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. But that Christ’s Holy Nation was now represented by Christ Himself as the New Covenant Temple. And that was THE TRUTH that He was declaring when He prophesied that the Temple would be destroyed but in 3 days would be rebuilt. And this was clarified when THE JEWS were astonished and we read the reply of the Pharisees when Christ said that His Body was the New Testament Temple which they of course were blinded to
when we read:
“Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this Temple, and will YOU raise it up in three days?” But He was speaking of the temple of His body. Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.” (John 2:19-22)
CLEARLY – Christ was the chief foundation stone of this New Temple. And THANKFULLY that meant that the head of the cornerstone of this New Temple was not defeated when most of THE JEWS in the Nation of Israel rejected Him. And TODAY He is still the corner stone of this New Testament Temple which is HIS BODY. And that means that the new 3rd Temple that THE JEWS are planning on rebuilding today in Jerusalem could NEVER be the corner stone!!! For the TRUTH of Christ’s Word REVEALS that He is the New Testament Temple. And this TRUTH was confirmed when the veil of the Holy Temple -- which separated the Holiest of Holy from the Congregation of God -- was rent or torn in two from top to bottom the moment Christ took His last breath on the Cross.
For this renting of the veil of the Temple symbolized the fall of Old Covenant Israel. When at the very moment that Christ died the Temple veil was torn in half from top to bottom signifying that the old Covenant Israel Temple “type” was fulfilled or completed by “the anti-type” which is Christ’s flesh. And when before God’s people could only enter His presence by the Old Ceremonial Temple practices – there was now a NEW WAY. That Christ Himself had become “THE LIVING WAY” and the TRUTH and THE LIFE which was made possible by His death on the Cross for the sins of His Chosen “Elect” which included EVERYONE of us in His Book of Life regardless of RACE!!!
And that meant that the Old Covenant Temple with its earthly ways and means merely prefigured the TRUE PRIEST of us saved “Elect” who was Christ. For just as Christ prophesied -- He had with His sacrifice on the Cross become THE TRUE WAY of Salvation for ALL OF US “ELECT” and “CHOSEN” to be made right with God -- that we might receive the Kingdom of Heaven through Christ paying for our sins on the Cross. And that is confirmed when He said: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
And now The Old Covenant with Israel is passed away in the sense that the fulfillment in the New Covenant had NOW COME with “the Messiah the Prince” in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy recorded in Daniel 9:25 Coming the 1st time which fulfilled the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And that means that the efficacy of the Cross -- which the Old Covenant ceremonial laws prefigured – was FULFILLED in the death of Christ which the Disciples of Christ and the Early Christians BELIEVED as the Gospel Truth. And TODAY the True Gospel of Christ still REVEALS that Christ Himself was and STILL 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 has truly made anyone the True “Spiritual Israel of God”!!! For being born the progeny of Jacob didn't make anyone a true Israelite as we read recorded in Romans 9:6. For one has to be IN CHRIST to be in the True Spiritual Israel of God today which is Christ’s Holy Nation. In other words – one has to be “born again” which according to Christ is through His Holy Spirit saving our souls and giving us the Spiritual eyes to see His Gospel Truth!!!
CLEARLY -- being IN CHRIST is by His choosing to save us before the foundation of the World which is the only way that any of us Christians have become part of the Holy Nation of Israel wherein we are Eternally secure and can find Peace and Safety. For the TRUE ISRAEL is CHRIST. And it is Christ that has saved “the Jacobs that He loved” when He CAME as “the Messiah the Prince” to fulfill the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy. And that means that Christ’s True Holy Nation is NOT the LITERAL Political Nation in the Middle East today who for the most part still is occupied by “the Jews of the Flesh” who do NOT accept that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy WHO CAME!!! The Nation of Israel in the O.T. of the Bible and during Christ’s Ministry on Earth was merely the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the true inheritance which would be IN CHRIST!!! Just as the Old Covenant Holy Temple was merely the shadow of the true -- which is also Christ.
And that’s WHY it is vitally important to understand that Christ’s True Gospel Message is that when the Lamb inherited Judah -- we “Elect” and “Chosen” in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST inherited the Promised Land which is the New Heavens and the New Earth IN CHRIST!!! In other words – the New Heavens and Earth are our Spiritual inheritance which SADLY Dispensationalists have confused with an Earthly inheritance of what they think is the land that the LITERAL NATION of Israel sits upon TODAY. For clearly – Dispensationalists believe that the PROMISED LAND which Jerusalem sits upon is what they think is the EVERLASTING ETERNAL POSSESSION of THE JEWS – I DON’T THINK SO!!! For Christ explicitly prophesied that this plot of land is sitting on sin-cursed Earth and will be DESTROYED on the LAST DAY with the rest of this sin-cursed Earth.
THINK ABOUT IT-- both a remnant of Jews and a remnant of Gentiles alike became joined together in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST when Christ saved us and when we began living and reigning with Him in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” on Earth in our saved soul existence. This SPIRITUAL City is our Promised Land while alive on this Earth. But we also have a part in the Eternal inheritance which is NOT a reward of a plot of dirt in the Middle East – GOD FORBID!!! -- but the reward of being THE SONS OF GOD in the Kingdom of Heaven in the Age to Come. And that’s WHY Christ is coming back – to RAPTURE us “Elect” to the New Heavens and the New Earth on the LAST DAY.
The “Strong Delusion” That Christ Prophesied Would Result in Desolation
Is Man Changing The Truth Of His Gospel into A LIE!!!
For Centuries Professed Christians have imagined all sorts of ridiculous things that could be “the strong delusion” that Christ had Paul prophesy about. But what He was describing was no less than “The Abomination of Desolation” that will lead to many even Professed Christians being thrown into HELL on the Final Day of Judgment for REJECTING “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology and believing instead the False Gospels and the False Eschatology’s of MAN!!! That’s WHY Christ had Paul prophesy that believing in a Gospel that He was NOT the Author of is indeed a FATAL ERROR. For when one turns the Gospel of Christ into “ANOTHER GOSPEL” – believing that False Gospel no matter how sincerely one believes it -- does NOT save anyone’s soul!!!
And CLEARLY -- Christ had Paul WARN us through what is written in 2nd Thessalonians 2:11 that Christ Himself sends the unfaithful this “strong delusion” for NOT loving THE TRUTH of His Gospel. That Christ will JUDGE the False Prophets who like Hananiah encourage His Congregation to believe IN LIES by pouring out these LAST 3 WOES which include the 1st 2 WOES of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS that anyone of us “Elect” can see have ALREADY been poured out!!!
In other words -- Paul WARNS us that it is Christ who allows those who reject His Word to believe the LIES of Satan and to accept Satan’s “strong delusion” that they are saved when in reality Paul prophesied from Christ that they will be DAMNED for REFUSING TO BELIEVE THE TRUTH!!! And clearly -- John was shown in his 7 visions that Christ would pour out the 1st 2 WOES of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS that are the 5th and 6th Bowl JUDGMENTS on those of Satan’s SEED before THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY. So that those who betray Christ will believe DOCTRINES OF DEMONS instead of Christ’s True Gospel just as we read in 2nd Thessalonians 2:10-11.
And one of those DOCTRINES OF DEMONS is that Christ will SECRETLY remove THE CHURCH in a Pre-Trib Rapture from this Earth BEFORE a the 7 year Tribulation which Dispensationalists teach is the 70th Week of Daniel meant ONLY FOR THE JEWS. But according to Christ’s True Eschatology the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy was FULFILLED for all of us “Elect” at His 1st Coming -- and the 2nd Half is almost completely fulfilled NOW TODAY!!! Which means that what Dispensationalists teach is just NOT TRUE when they teach that halfway through the 7 years of Tribulation after almost half of the 7.9 BILLION of this World’s population will have died from the LAST 7 PLAGUES being poured out. And that THEN “THE ANTICHRIST” who is from the revived Roman Empire will stand up in the rebuilt 3rd Temple in Jerusalem and declare himself to BE GOD which will initiate the GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
The problem with this obscure line of reasoning is that NONE of it is prophesied in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology because it is NOT Christ’s True Gospel!!! For Christ prophesies there will be MANY “taken by surprise” at His 2nd Coming. And how could anyone be “taken by surprise” if almost 4 BILLION people have died????!!! But Dispensationalists keep on promoting their FALSE ESCHATOLOGY by teaching that the HOLY SPIRIT will be REMOVED when the Church is Raptured BEFORE the Great Tribulation because Christ indwells those of THE CHURCH. When what Christ had Paul prophesy was NOT that His Holy Spirit will ever cease to be OMNIPRESENT – HARDLY!!! Jesus may have “Left the Buildings” of the Apostate Churches around the Globe today who teach this Eschatological nonsense – but He MOST DEFINITELY HAS NOT LEFT THE PLANET – GOD FORBID!!!
Paul was merely prophesying that there will come a time when the Spirit’s Work of RESTRAINING SATAN AND LAWLESSNESS ceases when He has finished saving all of those in His Book of Life -- and THEN CHRIST ALLOWS men just to go their own way. And that time is clearly TODAY when Christ has now taken His restraint off of SATAN and LOOSED him to fight this Final Spiritual Battle causing today’s time of Great Tribulation. And this time OF JUDGMENT for the New Testament Congregation’s APOSTASY and unfaithfulness to Christ and His Word are clearly REVEALED to Daniel in his last 4 visions and to John in his last 7 visions.
And CLEARLY -- today’s Great Tribulation FORESHADOWS the 70 years of Babylonian Captivity that took place in Daniel’s day which was a result of the Old Testament Congregation’s unfaithfulness. And Daniel was given a glimpse into SATAN’S RISE to power as “THE ANTICHRIST” in this time of Great Tribulation when Christ showed Daniel in his 3rd of the last 4 visions that during the 2nd Half of the 70 Weeks that Christ would LOOSE SATAN. And that during Satan’s last 4th Epoch rule that he would become the Final King of Babylon ruling this WHOLE WORLD and fostering GREAT DECEPTION and SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS on those who are of HIS SEED. Which means that Christ is using SATAN as His instrument of JUDGMENT by LOOSING him to foster Great Wickedness causing this time of Great Tribulation on a World that is being led by SATAN to REBEL against Christ and His Word!!!
And make no mistake -- Christ has NOT CHANGED!!! For when He wanted to PUNISH Israel and Judah for their APOSTASY – He ALLOWED the wicked Assyrians and Babylonians to corrupt them further and then to finally destroy all those who were NOT OF HIS SEED and His “Elect.” That’s WHY it just can’t be reiterated enough that the 70 years of Babylonian Captivity in Daniel’s Day is a FORESHADOW of Christ REMOVING HIS HAND OF RESTRAINT on Satan which is just what He has done TODAY in this time of GREAT TRIBULATION by allowing Satan to rule the WHOLE WORLD!!! And This special aspect of Christ’s CONTROL -- especially over SATAN!!! – is ESSENTIAL to our understanding of these End-Times Prophecies. For “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that before His 2nd Coming that Satan and his SEED must be thoroughly DEFEATED in this Final Spiritual Battle BEFORE the Rapture on the
LAST DAY TAKES PLACE!!!
In other words – Christ is NOW allowing SINFULNESS AND LAWLESSNESS in the World to increase by His JUDGMENT of releasing His RESTAINT on SATAN so that Satan will DECEIVE THE NATIONS and all those of Satan’s SEED will be DAMNED for NOT believing THE TRUTH of Christ’s Gospel!!! And this time of GREAT LAWLESSNESS marks Satan’s Final Epoch Reign of this World identified in Daniel’s 3rd of his 4 last visions in Daniel Chapter 9.
During This Time of Great Tribulation “The 10 Horns” Who We NOW Call “The Elites”
Have Given Their Power to SATAN Who is “THE BEAST” That Will
Rule the WHOLE WORLD Until the CONSUMMATION!!!
HONESTLY – NO ONE can understand these last of the LAST DAYS of Satan’s rule of this WHOLE WORLD now without studying The Book of Daniel which is divided into 2 sections of 6 Chapters each. The 1st section is mainly concerned with the Historical Events of the past – while the 2nd section is mainly concerned with the Future and is predicting the Events that occur during the 70 Weeks of Daniel which cover the WHOLE New Covenant Period from the Cross to “THE CONSUMMATION.” In all – 4 visions were given to Daniel in the 2nd Predictive 6 Chapters recorded in the Book of Daniel. And they are interrelated and build upon each other as follows:
1. The vision of the Four Beasts in Daniel Chapter 7 which provides additional details about the 4 Kingdoms REVEALED in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream outlined in Daniel Chapter 2 which is a vision of SATAN in a huge statue of a Man ruling over the last 4 Kingdoms of this World
2. The vision of the Ram and the Goat in Daniel Chapter 8 which expands on “the little horn” – or the End-Time Antichrist introduced in the preceding vision
3. The Prophecy of the 70 Weeks in Daniel Chapter 9 which provides intriguing Chronological insights into the Lord’s 1st and 2nd Comings with emphasis on the Final “half week” of the End-Time DESOLATION of the Harlot Church which is taking place TODAY through the pouring out of the last 3 WOES!!!
4. And Finally the vision of the King of the North and the South in Daniel Chapters 10-12 which features detailed prophesies about the Hellenistic or post-Greek Era with particular emphasis on the Seleucid King Antiochus IV Epiphanes who is presented as a “type” of the coming Antichrist who is SATAN who is waging WAR against Christ’s Kingdom in this Final Spiritual Battle of today!!! And then much information is alsogiven about Satan’s End-Time rule which we are in TODAY with SATAN now LOOSED by Christ to not only fight this Final Spiritual Battle but to rule the WHOLE WORLD!!!
CLEARLY – in reading this outline one can understand that Daniel’s awesome Book was meant to convey from the Lord that SATAN is“THE ANTICHRIST” of the Final 4th Epoch Empire pictured in King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream of the Statue of Satan. In other words -- TODAY’S rule of Satan is depicted in Daniel’s last 4 visions listed above with him ruling the last 4th Empire on Earth NOW. And fortunately -- Daniel’s visons are then confirmed by the 7 visions REVEALED to John which also prophesy this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when Christ 1st REVEALED to Daniel that THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST would be persecuted by Satan’s Sons of Perdition.
And don’t we see SATAN AND HIS SEED trying to change the LAWS in our Constitution TODAY in America which is now affecting the whole world just as Christ had Daniel prophecy would take place at the End of time???!!! CLEARLY -- the 2ndsection of Daniel’s Book was written by Christ through Daniel for us living TODAY when we read that we “Elect” of Christ “shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time” which is this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION!!! And make no mistake -- SATAN is “THE ANTICHRIST” whose hands we “Elect” today have been given into!!! (Daniel 7:25)
Christ REVEALED to Daniel that Satan is “THE ANTICHRIST”
Who will “Make Desolate” until “THE CONSUMMATION” of Christ’s Kingdom
Which Will Take Place On the LAST DAY of this World!!!
CLEARLY – Christ wanted to convey to us “Elect” living TODAY through these last 4 visions that He REVEALED to Daniel that Salvation will END and then the Final Judgment of the External Global Harlot Church will begin. And today’s JUDGMENT is what Daniel was shown would be this time now of Great Tribulation when Christ will be CLEANSING His Temple of all the Hananiah’s who are teaching His Congregation to believe in LIES and to REBEL against His Gospel Truth of these End-Times. This much we learn from Daniel 9:27 when we read that AFTER Christ has made His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us in His Book of Life that SATAN will be THE ONE who causes the DESOLATION of those who fall for his “strong delusions” when we read:
“Then He shall confirm a (New) Covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.”
While Man’s False Eschatology teaches that this prophecy is about “THE ANTICHRIST” of the Future making a Peace Covenant with THE JEWS who will be “Left Behind” after the Pre-Trib Rapture of the Church -- it is pretty OBVIOUS that Christ was THE ONE who made the New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us “Elect” during the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. And that we are seeing this “The Abomination of Desolation” NOW TODAY of Satan DECEIVING those of his SEED to be AT WAR with Christ and His Word about His 2nd Coming just as SATAN deceived the Pharisees and the Sadducees to be AT WAR with Christ and His Word about His 1st Coming.
I mean – think about it -- in this prophecy Christ prophesied that AFTER He had confirmed His New Covenant of Grace with us “Elect” of HIS SEED in the 1stHalf of the 70th Week Prophecy – that THEN Salvation would END when He had saved everyone. This much we “Elect” at least know has AREADY taken place in the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. And in the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy Christ REVEALS to us “Elect” that SATAN rises as “THE ANTICHRIST” and will “make desolate” all those who buy into his “strong delusions” until the CONSUMMATION of Christ’s Restored Millennial Kingdom on the LAST DAY takes place!!!
And aren’t we seeing today that those of the SEED OF SATAN are being led by him to think that THEY ARE GOD and can rule this world with their Plan of “The Great Reset”???!!! I mean – think about it – aren’t we “Elect” witnessing the Fall of Babylon recorded in Revelation Chapter 18 which Christ REVEALED to John in this 6th vision of these End-Times that EVERYONE ON EARTH would witness???!!! And doesn’t John say that we “Elect” should “rejoice” when we see Babylon falling which means that everyone on Earth is still here and NO ONE has been Raptured yet???!!! CLEARLY – what John prophesied is what we are seeing – that the “The Elites” are weeping and wailing at the Fall of Babylon and us “Elect” are rejoicing when John wrote: “Rejoice over her, O Heaven, and you Holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!” (Revelation 18:20)
And doesn’t John THEN describe the World ENDING with Christ pouring out the Last 7th Plague to destroy this Earth and Universe with FIRE AFTER we see Babylon Fall which we are seeing now today???!!! For Christ says that this event of “The Abomination of Desolation” of Satan and the “Elites” in League with him will lead to the DESOLATION of the 2/3 Remnant of this World’s population that Christ chose NOT TO SAVE. And
HONESTLY – Christ prophesying that we “Elect” will SEE “The Abomination of Desolation” of SATAN ruling the WHOLE WORLD now is proof that the RAPTURE does NOT happen BEFORE the Great Tribulation which is just what Christ prophesied recorded in His Apocalyptic Discourse of Matthew 24. That AFTER this Great Tribulation that THE RAPTURE of Christ’s “Elect” will take place as we read in Matthew 24:15-31.
Satan may not know the EXACT HOUR AND DAY of Christ’s 2nd Coming – but he understands the “dark sentences” prophesied in Daniel’s last 4 visions that he will meet his END at the End of this Final Spiritual Battle. And that is WHY this Final Spiritual Battle has to take place BEFORE the Rapture. Because Satan’s “Evil Generation” of “Elites” will continue to FIGHT against Christ and us “Elect” if they are NOT DEFEATED. And this World will only get more EVIL with Satan now LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD until Christ has thoroughly DEFEATED him and those in his Evil Generation – which is WHY CHRIST’S DIVINE PLAN of DEFEATING SATAN must occur BEFORE THE RAPTURE DOES on the LAST DAY!!!
