We are Spiritual Beings Living in Either the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem
” If Christ Chose to save us –
or the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great
”If Christ Chose NOT to save us!!!
December 7, 2020
CLEARLY -- every Human Being that has ever lived on this Earth has lived in the Natural Kingdom of this World as part of a City or a town which is also part of a Nation. And clearly -- all the Nations of the World make up the Natural Kingdom of this World. But what this Narcissistic Society of today which has TOTALLY “fallen away” from THE TRUTH of God’s Word fails to understand or just REFUSES to acknowledge as THE TRUTH -- is that there are 2 Spiritual Kingdoms that exist also. And that every person who has ever lived on this Earth has been or is today a resident of one of these 2 Spiritual Kingdoms which according to the Bible are: 1) The Kingdom of God – and 2) the Kingdom of Satan. In other words -- one of the most important SPIRITUAL TRUTHS to understand is that we are each made up of BODY – SOUL -- AND SPIRIT. And that our Spiritual Being -- which is our soul and Spirit -- is part of a SPIRITUAL WORLD just as our Natural Body is part of the Natural World.
But “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology which is so often overlooked because of the APOSTASY of Christendom TODAY – is that the Kingdoms of this World are presently under the control of SATAN who the Bible REVEALS is “the ruler of this world” and “the god of this Age” and who the Apostle Paul prophesied from Christ would be REVEALED at the “proper time” as “THE ANTICHRIST” to all who are watching and understand Christ’s True Gospel. And CLEARLY – SATAN himself is “THE ANTICHRIST” that Paul prophesied recorded in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 who would be REVEALED – NOT One Particular Man of the Future who hasn’t even stepped up on the Stage of Human History as Man’s False Eschatology teaches!!
And what ESPECIALLY needs to be understood from “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology -- is that Satan rules over those in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” which John saw and described in his 7 visions recorded in The Book of Revelation who are the 2/3 Remnant of this World’s population that Christ chose NOT to save recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9. In other words – everyone who has NOT been saved by Christ exists in their unsaved soul existence on this Earth in Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” whether they chose to exist there or NOT!!! For as I’ve written in previous Commentaries about “The Gog Oracle” REVEALED to us in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39 and in particular 38:1-9 – Christ wanted to convey the “compulsory enrollment” of Satan’s Army called by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Magog.” For Christ REVEALED to both Ezekiel and John that Satan’s 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.
In other words – Satan didn’t choose this Army of “Magog” – HARDLY!!! -- he inherited those that Christ chose NOT to save who became part of his SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” in which they have existed on this Earth in their unsaved soul existence from birth to death. And not only do the 2/3 unsaved Remnant of this World exist in their unsaved souls in Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” – but John saw that Christ had ALREADY invisibly marked every one of them with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” to show Satan’s ownership of them!!! And Christ also REVEALED to John that not only does Satan presently rule over the 2/3 Remnant of unsaved Humans out of this World’s population TODAY – but he also rules over a VAST ARMY of Spiritual Beings called “DEMONS” that also exist in Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon.
And what is affecting everyone on Earth TODAY -- is that John saw 200 MILLION of these DEMONS LOOSED along with Satan to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that Christ REVEALED to John MUST OCCUR before the Rapture on “The Day of the Lord” which is the LAST DAY of Human History. And he saw that these Evil Spirits called “demons” were SPECIFICALLY LOOSED to enter – torment – control and TO DECEIVE the unsaved 2/3 Remnant out of this World’s population during this Final Spiritual Battle which AGAIN John saw in his 5thvision MUST OCCUR BEFORE THE RAPTURE. And after seeing this Demonic Army in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 9 -- John proceeds to describe this Final Spiritual Battle going on now on Earth. When it is pretty obvious that Christ has ALREADY poured out the 6th Bowl Judgment of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS on Satan’s Army of “Magog” convincing those under Satan’s control to join THE FINAL REBELLION against Christ and those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” when we read:
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the Great River Euphrates, (which is CRYPTIC LANGUAGE used to describe the unsaved 2/3 Remnant!!!) 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 (who is SATAN!!!), (and) out of the mouth of THE BEAST (which describes Satan’s BEAST SYSTEM of oppressive and corrupt Governments in the Nations that he now rules over in the United Nations!!!), and out of the mouth of the False Prophet (which includes ALL the False Religions and False Prophets who promote them!!!.) 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. “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.” (Revelation 16:12-16)
CLEARLY – what John saw in this 5th vision described in Revelation 16:12-16 -- is that the Great River Euphrates represents the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” where the 2/3 unsaved Remnant exist in their unsaved soul existence and who are being led in one Final Rebellion against Christ and those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” BEFORE the 2nd Coming of Christ. And he saw that this Great River was dried up by the very “HAND OF GOD” to prepare the way for the Political and Religious World Leaders and unsaved people of the Earth to fight the Final Spiritual Battle that we are in TODAY!!! And make no mistake – it is NO COINCIDENCE that the Global Economy and resources of this World have ALREADY been dried up by this Coronavirus and the Draconian measures of Satanic Bondage that Satan and those under his control have imposed on ALL OF US around the Globe now – which proves where we are on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline -- THINK ABOUT IT!!!
But the GOOD NEWS is that John also saw that when Satan and all those in League with him are in TOTAL CONTROL of this World and have contaminated the POLITICAL – PHILOSOPHICAL and RELIGIOUS forces of this World with EVIL by uniting everyone in his Kingdom of Babylon into one Evil Force coming against Christ and those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” – that Christ will suddenly like “a thief in the night” part the very Heavens to RAPTURE those of us that He has saved in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. But the BAD NEWS for Satan and those in his SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” -- is that on the very same day as THE RAPTURE of us “Elect” – that Christ will JUDGE Satan and those in his Kingdom of Babylon by casting them all out of His Kingdom FOREVER!!!
Today’s Final Spiritual Battle is Being Fought Between the 2 Spiritual Kingdoms
Of “Babylon the Great” and “Heavenly Jerusalem”
FORTUNATELY – for those of us 1/3 Remnant that Christ chose to save who have been filled with Christ’s Holy Spirit – we know that the Apocalyptic Literature of the Bible is written in HIGHLY CRYPTICAL SPIRITUAL TRUTHS that only those of us with the Spirit of Christ can understand. And that’s WHY we understand that the purpose of the LOOSING of Satan and his 200 MILLION ARMY OF DEMONS – is to initiate this Final Spiritual Battle and to pour out the LAST 3 WOES on those in Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon as JUDGMENT. And the 1st 2 of these LAST 3 WOES is meant to BLIND those who do NOT belong to Christ so that they will accept the “strong delusions” coming from Satan and so be DAMNED as Paul wrote in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2. For CLEARLY – John saw that THE RAPTURE could not take place until the 1st 2 WOES of BLINDNESS had been poured out!!!
In other words --“Armageddon” -- which is also called by the CRYPTIC NAME of “the Gog and Magog” Battle -- is represented in The Book of Revelation as the CONQUEST of Christ over Satan and ALL EVIL. For John saw in his 7 visions that “Armageddon” was NOT the LITERAL place of a Future Nuclear Holocaust – HARDLY!!! – but the SPIRITUAL LOCATION of Christ’s Victory over SATAN and his Army of Demons and the 2/3 Remnant of Mankind under Satan’s command who are NOW AT WAR in this Final Spiritual Battle against us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.”
And that’s WHY John saw the Great River Euphrates which represents the 2/3 Unsaved Remnant of this World that are NOW being led IN REBELLION against Christ and His Laws dried up with the Economy and the resources of this World being brought down in ruins. For clearly – TODAY we are witnessing what John prophesied would be the Fall of Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” taking place with this Coronavirus which has not only led to the Fall of the Global Economy – but has also led the way to this FINAL REBELLION. For today we see that the NATIONS ARE SO ANGRY that the unsaved are rebelling against God and His LAWS which has resulted in a TOTAL break-down of LAW AND ORDER in Human Governments everywhere around the Globe!!!
And we can understand if we have been given THE MIND OF CHRIST – that what Daniel was shown about the Statue of SATAN in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream has now become a REALITY. For clearly -- Daniel was shown that during the END of the 4th Kingdom of Satan TODAY – that DEMONS would be LOOSED to mingle with the unsaved population. And John was shown this same vision of 200 MILLION DEMONS LOOSED from the Bottomless Pit with Satan to DECEIVE THE NATIONS!!! In other words --both Daniel and John paint a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of this FINAL REBELLION and the Spiritual Battle led by SATAN who Christ had Ezekiel and John call “Gog” and “THE BEAST” in the Books of Ezekiel and Revelation. And THANKFULLY albeit this description of the Final Spiritual Battle is HIGHLY CRYPTIC – Christ has John explicitly REVEAL that the Evil Spirits of DEMONS would be at work – which they are NOW!!! -- to DECEIVE THE NATIONS because SATAN has been given TOTAL RULE over this world having been LOOSED by Christ to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that we are in TODAY!!!
And notice that what John prophesies will take place AFTER the 6th Angel pours out his Bowl of Judgment which initiates this Final Spiritual Battle – is that the END OF THE WORLD will take place when then the 7th Angel pours out the 7th Bowl Judgment. In other words – Man’s Eschatology is WRONG!!! For John did NOT see Christ Returning to save The Nation of Israel EN-MASSE -- or to set up a LITERAL PHYSICAL KINGDOM where He will reign from the LITERAL PHYSICAL rebuilt 3rd Temple in Jerusalem for a LITERAL 1000 years – HARDLY!!! Man’s False Eschatology has managed to sell MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of Prophecy Books promoting this False Eschatology -- but only “The Rapture Truth” of Christ’s True Eschatology is going to be fulfilled to the letter because only Christ’s Eschatology is 100% TRUE!!!
HONESTLY – it’s amazing how so much of Christendom thinks that Christ somehow got it ALL WRONG and that in Man’s FALSE ESCHATOLOGY they somehow got it ALL RIGHT!!! When Man’s False Eschatology that so much of Christendom has accepted as TRUTH -- DENIES – CONTRADICTS – DISTORTS and challenges almost every aspect of “The Rapture Truths” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!!
I mean – THINK ABOUT IT -- Man’s False Eschatology teaches that before the 2nd Coming of Christ -- that over ½ of the World’s population of 7.8 BILLION people will be killed by the last 7 Plagues which will be poured out during a Tribulation Period of 7 years AFTER THE RAPTURE of the Church. REALLY???!!! NONE of that was prophesied because NONE OF IT IS TRUE!!! For how could Christ’s 2ndComing be described by Christ as His coming as “a thief in the night” if 3.9 BILLION people have died from the 7 Last Plagues being poured out in such a very short amount of time???!!!
CLEARLY -- John’s 7 visions imply that Christ’s people will KNOW the timing of His 2nd Coming in JUDGMENT just as Noah KNEW before the Flood that the Judgment of the Great Flood was coming. And just as Elijah and all of the prophets of Christ KNEW that Christ was going to RAPTURE Elijah BEFORE he was RAPTURED!!! In other words -- NOAH KNEW because Christ told him – while the unsaved Antediluvians were CLUELESS because Christ obviously was NOT REVEALING His DIVINE PLAN to any of them!!! AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!! For at this Final time of Judgment when the RAPTURE will take place -- MOST of the 2/3 unsaved Remnant which includes even professed Christians -- DO NOT know that we are even in THE GREAT TRIBULATION caused by the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE leading up to the 2nd Coming of Christ. And the reason WHY they don’t know is because they REFUSE to believe “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology which is also WHY we read that Christ will come unexpectedly to them who are NOT WATCHING AND BELIEVING His True Eschatology with these words:
“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.” (clearly – this Final Spiritual Battle includes those who are NOT WATCHING and why at the END of the Battle and the Great Tribulation that they will be “taken by surprise” when Christ does Return!!!) (Rev. 16:15-16)
This 6th Bowl Judgment is clearly describing the Final Spiritual Battle and the Final Rebellion of Mankind that is being played out right now BEFORE OUR VERY EYES!!! And all that’s Left is the LAST 7TH BOWL JUDGMENT to be poured out on “The Day of the Lord”!!! And regardless of what Man’s False Eschatology teaches -- it will be the 21st Century Antediluvians of today that will be “LEFT BEHIND” for Judgment after THE RAPTURE – NOT those of us 1/3 Remnant that Christ has saved out of this World who are watching and BELIEVING Christ’s True Eschatology that the 1st 2 WOES of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS have already been poured out.
Why John Was Told To Measure the True Temple in his 3rdVision
One of the GREATEST TRUTHS of the Bible is that The House of God in the Old Testament is a FORESHADOW of the True Temple or the New Testament Temple which is Christ HIMSELF. And the measuring of the Temple in both Ezekiel and John’s visions SIGNIFIED the revelation of God of the true nature of the Temple -- and that Christ’s People must turn from their sins. In other words -- Christ was NOT telling Ezekiel and John to measure a LITERAL Temple in their visions – for the SPIRITUAL TRUTH was that there was no LITERAL TEMPLE in the visions that they were each receiving – but visions of the “true” SPIRITUAL TEMPLE that was Christ to illustrate that some of those professing to be in the Congregation of God were NOT conforming to God’s Laws and were therefore NOT IN CHRIST. And what we read that Christ REVEALED to Ezekiel that was taking place in His own Congregation in the Old Testament Days was a FORESHADOW of what was later REVEALED to John that would take place in the Congregation of God at the END OF TIME which is TODAY when Ezekiel prophesied:
“Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the Great abominations that the House of Israel commits here, to make Me go far away from My sanctuary? Now turn again, you will see greater abominations.” So He brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, there was a hole in the wall. Then He said to me, “Son of man, dig into the wall”; and when I dug into the wall, there was a door. And He said to me, “Go in, and see the wicked abominations which they are doing there.” So I went in and saw, and there -- every sort of creeping thing, abominable beasts, and all the idols of the House of Israel, portrayed all around on the walls. “ (Ezekiel 8:6-10)
CLEARLY -- this is the same illustration given to us in John’s 6th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 18 when John saw that many of those Professing to be of the Congregation of God really were part of the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” when we read how detestable those under the rule of SATAN had been DECEIVED to become with this description which is pretty close to what Ezekiel also saw in his vision:
“After these things I saw another Angel coming down from Heaven, having Great Authority, and the Earth was illuminated with His glory. And He cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the Great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! For all the Nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the Kings of the Earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the Earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”
This was NOT just any Angel – but was no doubt Christ HIMSELF who was pronouncing JUDGMENT on Satan and his SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great”!!! When next we read from John that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are told NOT to have anything to do with those of this wicked SPIRITUAL CITY of Satan because Christ is HIMSELF bringing Satan’s Kingdom and the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” down in ruins. And CLEARLY – these verses PROVE that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are here on Earth to see “Babylon FALL” which began FALLING in just ONE DAY when Christ LOOSED SATAN to fight this Final Spiritual Battle. For this Final Spiritual Battle has brought on the GREAT TRIBULATION when we read that Christ is TODAY JUDGING Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” right now and that we in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” are to separate ourselves from the unsaved in Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon:
“And I heard another voice from Heaven saying, “Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to Heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ Therefore her plagues will come in ONE DAY -- death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with FIRE, for strong is the Lord God who Judges her.” (Revelation Chapter 18)
And this is WHY John was told much like Ezekiel was to rise up and measure the Temple – the Altar -- and those that worshipped therein to see who REALLY BELONGED to Christ and who were being DECEIVED by Satan that they belonged to Christ. In other words – BOTH of the visions given to Ezekiel and John to measure the Temple paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the dimensions of the True Temple and those who were NOT part of the True Temple. For The TRUE Temple is the True Body of Christ – with the Altar signifying the atonement of the 1/3 Remnant that Christ chose to save. In other words -- the True Temple is SYNONYMOUS with Christ’s sacrifice and His People which are the 1/3 Remnant of this World that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah would be saved by Him.
And these visions given to Ezekiel and John were to illustrate that God’s people were to measure up to the prescribed dimensions that God has set forth -- or that they should repent if they did not. Which meant that each of us should examine ourselves to see if we are TRULY SAVED or NOT when Christ had Paul prophesy that only those of us who remained in THE FAITH were part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST when we read from Paul through Christ Himself:
“Examine yourselves as to whether you are IN THE FAITH. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? (For) unless indeed you (KNOW THIS – you) are disqualified.” (and we know that the test of our faith is to KNOW that if Christ chose to save us by HIS AMAZING GRACE -- that is the ONLY WAY that we can be covered by HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!) (2nd Corinthians 13:5)
The True Temple is Christ who was sacrificed upon the altar to make the now SPIRITUAL worship of Him by us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST possible. And CLEARLY -- the Old testament sacrifices upon the altar were a “type” of Christ’s atonement. Which is WHY John was told to measure the Temple – for it’s measurement has a relationship to the death and resurrection of Christ -- and to God the true builder. For those who worship therein are part of the TRUE TEMPLE through Christ – which is WHY we are spoken of as the “living stones” in the Temple. In other words – John was told to measure the Temple because the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL TRUTH is that the Temple’s “true” dimensions can only be realized by those of us who are IN CHRIST.
For by Christ telling John to “rise” up and measure the True Temple of God in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 – Christ was in fact telling John to measure or take an exact estimate of the true Temple and the altar -- and of all the worshippers therein to see if they measure up to the form or image of Christ by being covered by His Righteousness. In other words -- if they really are TRULY the habitation of God -- or are just conforming to the image of “THE BEAST” which would make them part of the 2/3 Remnant of this world who are NOT TRULY SAVED. For only those who belong to Christ could be measured as being part of the True Temple. And clearly -- John was NOT told to measure a LITERAL 3rd TEMPLE in Jerusalem which Man’s False Eschatology prophesies must be built in order for “THE ANTICHRIST” to stand up in AFTER THE RAPTURE and declare himself to be GOD – HARDLY!!! John was told to measure the True tabernacle which is CHRIST and the true believers who showed the TRUE IMAGE OF CHRIST!!!
John Saw in his 3rd Vision That Those in the “Outer Court” are NOT Truly IN CHRIST!!!
The Dispensationalists that insist that Revelation Chapter 11 speaks of a LITERAL 3rd Temple which they say must be built in Jerusalem for “THE ANTICHRIST” to stand up in it and declare himself to be GOD – completely ignore the fact that John saw that the outer court along with the Temple was there in his 3rd vision. So if this was talking about a LITERAL 3rd Temple which hasn’t even been built on Earth yet -- then why would Christ tell John NOT to measure the outer court which was given to the Gentiles???!!! It makes no Biblical sense AT ALL!!! But when we understand that John’s visions were a REVELATION of SPIRITUAL TRUTHS from a SPIRITUAL GOD to a SPIRITUALLY SAVEDPEOPLE talking of a SPIRITUAL TEMPLE which is SPIRITUAL SPEAKING Christ Himself -- THEN the reason the court is not included for measuring is obvious. I mean – think about it – John indeed saw that there was an “outer court” outside of the Holy Temple which he was commanded NOT to measure as part of the Holy Temple. For John understood that SPIRITUAL TEMPLE was CHRIST and NOT a LITERAL 3rd Temple in the LITERAL City of Jerusalem which hasn’t even been rebuilt yet. And that’s WHY he also understood that those NOT IN CHIRST were NOT TO BE MEASURED.
In other words -- the measuring of the Temple was NOT of a LITERAL building – HARDLY!!! -- but of the body of Christ. Which meant that anyone outside of Christ was considered NOT to be Holy – Righteous -- or Priests unto God -- and therefore could NOT be measured as being part of the Temple who is CHRIST. And the court “outside” of the Temple’s dimensions SYMBOLIZED the place of those who externally only had linked themselves with Christ – meaning they professed themselves to be Christians yet they were not truly raised up IN CHRIST. They may have joined one of the External Global Apostate Churches saying they were part of the Holy Temple – but in Christ’s eyes they have not truly entered INTO THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST because they were never chosen by Him to be part of the 1/3 saved Remnant.
Spiritually speaking -- they are those who have NEVER been risen with Christ – for only Christ has the power to raise any of us from our SPIRITUAL DEATH and our body of sin. And in the real sense – these Counterfeit Christians are lying to themselves as John prophesied from Christ: “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does NOT keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are IN HIM.” ( 1st John 2:3-5 )
CLEARLY -- by linking themselves to the Temple without entering therein all the COUNTERFEIT CHRISTIANS have is the NAME of Christ. And truly many Professed Christians are under the “strong delusion” that they are saved when all they have is a name and an external association with Christ through the External Global Harlot Church – but no “seal” of God as we read in Revelation 7 or the power and none of the righteousness which comes with true Salvation. In other words -- while they have a certain form of Godliness -- they DO NOT have the power of the Holy Spirit and thus do NOT “'measure up” in works of righteousness because they have NOT been covered by Christ’s righteousness through the SALVATION that only HE CAN GIVE. And these are the ones that John saw in his 3rd vision which were standing outside the Temple in the wide court being DECEIVED by SATAN that they were part of the true body of Christ.
And clearly -- this “outer court” John saw was given to the Gentiles who will tread under-foot the WORD OF CHRIST for forty two months (42 months) which is the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy that is taking place TODAY!!! And the Holy City being assaulted is none other than the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where we 1/3 Remnant of this SPIRITUAL WORLD exist in our saved soul existence here on Earth who are now going through this time of Great Tribulation because Christ has LOOSED SATAN and his 200 MILLION ARMY OF DEMONS to fight this Final Spiritual Battle.
Christ Defines who The True Spiritual Israel of God is in The Book of Revelation
Who is His Holy Nation That will be RAPTURED on the Last Day
CLEARLY – The True Spiritual Israel of God is made up of “the many” of us in Christ’s Book of Life that He as “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME chose out of every race and Nation which fulfilled the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy. And that’s also WHY Christ had Paul prophecy that only “TRUE JEWS” make up of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are “the saved Spiritual Jews” of the heart and spirit when we read:
“For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.” (Romans 2:28-29)
And that’s also WHY with “The Day of the Lord” so near that it’s so important to understand that in Christ’s definition it is “the saved Spiritual Jews” chosen by GRACE regardless of one’s RACE that will be RAPTURED AFTER this Great Tribulation on the LAST DAY. For being a TRUE JEW is not outward in the flesh as Man’s False Eschatology would have us believe today. But it is in knowing the Father through the Son that makes one A SON OF GOD -- NOT blood line or genealogy – but what Christ has done within the heart of each of us that He has chosen to save that makes us a “TRUE JEW” and a “TRUE ISRAELITE.” For only those of Christ’s “seed” are “born of God” as Christ had John prophesy:
“ Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.” (1stJohn 3:9)
And CLEARLY – the only way to “be born of God” is by Christ choosing us before the foundation of the World to be part of the 1/3 Remnant that He REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved out of this World’s population. It is NOT being born of Jewish lineage as Man’s False Eschatology teaches – A MILLION TIMES NOT!!! -- but being born of God that makes the 1/3 Remnant of Mankind The True Spiritual Israel of God because His seed remains in us. And in God's eyes -- this is what defines who a TRUE JEW is.
And it is woe unto them who claim they are TRUE JEWS when they are not when we read: “Indeed I will make those of the Synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are NOT, but lie -- indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.” (referring of course to those of us 1/3 Remnant that Christ chose to save that are those who are LOVED BY HIM!!!) (Revelation 3:9)
AGAIN – Salvation is not about genealogy – for according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology the true Sons of God are both of literal Jewish flesh and also of non-Jewish flesh. Which means that ONLY IF ONE IS IN CHRIST are they “unequivocally” and inwardly a TRUE JEW having been born of the Seed of Christ. CONVERSLY – IF ONE IS NOT IN CHRIST -- then even though they might have been born of Jewish Descent -- in Christ’s defining of a TRUE JEW they are NOT a TRUE JEW and NOT part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which makes up The Eternal Universal Church of Christ on Earth today. For when we consider Christ’s definition of a TRUE JEW carefully -- we can come to no other conclusion but that which Christ has written. That His Promises to Israel have NOT been abrogated –voided -- or made of non-effect because the Nation of Israel has in part been BLINDED. A MILLION TIMES NO!!! – for those BLINDED were NEVER part of the Kingdom of God to begin with!!! In other words -- the promise of Eternal Life was NEVER to a race of people -- but was from eternity to a GRACE of people just as Christ had Paul prophecy:
“But it is not that the word of God has taken no effect. For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, “In Isaac your seed shall be called.” That is, those who are the children of THE FLESH, these are NOT the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.” (and that is where “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” differ from “the saved Jews of the Spirit”!!!) (Romans 9:6-8)
And when Dispensationalist throw up their hands in rejection of these truths protesting that wherever the word “Israel” is found in the Bible means that ALL those who were born Jewish are Christ’s TRUE CHOSEN PEOPLE -- and that's all there is to it – they are CLEARLY flying in the face of Christ’s Holy Word – THINK ABOUT IT!!! For Christ’s Word prophesies that there are “the saved Jews of the Spirit” and “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” through Paul’s prophecy in Romans 9:6-8. And this Word from Christ couldn’t be written any plainer – that ALL the Nation of Israel at NO TIME in Human History were ever saved as a WHOLE NATION – but only a REMNANT were saved because “all Israel are NOT the True Israel of God”!!!
In other words -- in Christ’s defining being born of Jewish Descent does not make anyone a SON OF GOD – it’s being “the Children of the promise” and part of the 1/3 Remnant that Christ chose out of every race and Nation by His GRACE that makes ANYONE of us SONS OF GOD and heirs according to the promises that were made to the True Israel of God which is the only Holy Nation that Christ has ever had. For “A TRUE JEW” is not one in the flesh – but one in the Spirit.
Before The RAPTURE John Saw The Testimony of The 2 Witnesses Silenced and Killed
As I wrote in my last Commentary – CONTRARY to what the ever-so-popular Eschatology of Man teaches – the 2 Witnesses that John saw in his 3rdvision are NOT Moses and Elijah resurrected back to life again to help evangelize the whole World in the 7 Year Tribulation Period after THE RAPTURE – HARDLY!!! For these 2 witnesses of Revelation Chapter 11 paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Christ’s True Faithful Witnesses in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that today make up the True Eternal Universal Indivisible Church. And without a doubt there are many Scriptures which illustrate that these 2 designated Witnesses of Christ on Earth represent The True Israel of God that have prophesied and Evangelized the World during the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy AFTER “the Messiah the Prince” CAME when we read:
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the Earth.” (and this has taken place now for the CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1,260 days just as Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rdvision which FULFILLS the 1st Half of the 70th Week Prophecy of Daniel!!!) (Acts 1:8)
And because of this power given to us “Elect” -- we come in Christ’s Holy Spirit with the testimony of the Law of God which is just as Moses and Elijah both did. In other words – The True Israel of God is represented by these 2 Witnesses. And what is important to understand is that with the advent of the New Testament period-- which is the 70th Week of Daniel’s prophecy -- that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST have by the Spirit of God become His prophets when we read:
“But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.” (Acts 2:16-18)
CLEARLY -- the Word of God is the True Gospel which the Prophets of the True Eternal Universal Church have come with now for over 2000 years. In other words – we have come in the Spirit and Power of Moses and Elijah because we come as witnesses to the Law as Moses did – and as prophets of Judgment and deliverance as Elijah did. And clearly – this is SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE used to REVEAL that these 2 Witnesses are NOT LITERALLY Moses and Elijah who Man’s False Eschatology prophesies will MYSTERIOUSLY APPEAR after the Rapture of the Church – HARDLY!!! These 2 Witnesses represent Christ’s True Church that He sent out into all the World after Pentecost with the Law and the prophecy of His True Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven. For clearly -- just as John the Baptist came in the “Spirit and power of Elijah” – the 2 Witnesses represent the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ that have after Pentecost been endowed with the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word from God’s mouth as His True Prophets and witnesses.
They are NOT LITERALLY Moses and Elijah reincarnated as Man’s False Eschatology teaches – HARDLY!!!
But rest assured the 2 Witnesses are NOT symbolizing the whole Corporate or External Global Harlot Church that John describes in the Book of Revelation – for these 2 Witnesses are a symbol to illustrate only the faithful True Indivisible Church within the External Corporate body. In other words – the 2 Witnesses are those who are measured IN CHRIST that represent The True Spiritual Israel of God “within” the Corporate Church. And it is these 2 Witnesses or True Believers of Christ who are His “Elect” who will NOT fall headlong into the teachings of False Gospels now that Christ has LOOSED SATAN and his 200 MILLION DEMONS to DECEIVE the Nations and in particular those in the Harlot Church who have “fallen away” from the faith and THE TRUTH of Christ's True Gospel.
CLEARLY -- the 70th Week of Daniel’s Prophecy represents the whole New Covenant/Testament period from Christ’s death when He strengthened the New Covenant with “the many” of us in His Book of Life as REVEALED in Daniel 9:27 up until His return on “The Day of the Lord” which is right on the Horizon now. And the thousand two hundred and threescore days (1260 days) spiritually represent the first half of this New Covenant week -- which is the time of testimony of the Church before it is overcome by “THE BEAST” who is SATAN.
And the overview of Revelation Chapter 11 is that it illustrates the True Eternal Universal Church is given power or authority to be a prophet of God in the spirit and power of both Moses and Elijah. For we were commissioned to go forth with the authoritative power of the Word in Judgment as Elijah was – who had the power of God’s Judgment to shut Heaven so that it would not rain which SYMBOLIZED that unsaved Mankind would not receive God’s spiritual rain because of their wickedness. And the True Eternal Universal Church has also come with the Spirit and power that Moses had over waters to turn them to blood because our will is to do the Will of God. And as our testimony is the Word of God -- it is a Word which is not powerless by any means -- but AUTHORITATIVE!!!
John Saw the Witnessing Church Come to Life
And Stand Up on their Feet
And Sound the Trumpet For Christ That He is Coming Back SOON!!!
CLEARLY – we are living today when John prophesied as recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 that we True Witnesses of Christ will no longer bring the Gospel of Life because Christ has saved everyone in His Book of Life. And the World SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING has now become just like Sodom and Egypt when Salvation has ended and Judgment has begun. And SADLY our witness has been so effectively silenced in the Harlot Church by False Prophets that our voice as Christ’s True Witnessing Church is not being heard AT ALL!!! And John likens it to us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST as being dead – for there is no rule of God’s Law in the Harlot Church. And clearly that is WHY the Apostate Church during the 1stComing of Christ FORESHADOWS the Apostate End-Time Harlot Church now at the 2nd Coming of Christ.
For now that we True Witnesses of Christ have had our testimony for Christ “silenced and Killed” by “THE BEAST” who is Satan -- the Word of God is no longer going forth unto Salvation but unto JUDGMENT. And in this sense -- the True Eternal Church has become lifeless and DEAD. BUT FORTUNATELY – even though John paints a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE from Christ of the 2 Witnesses lying “DEAD IN THE STREETS” – we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which represent the 2 Witnesses are NOT forsaken. For John sees that after three and a half days of this SPIRITUAL DEATH – that the Spirit of life enters into us in the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ and we stand up on our feet and sound the Trumpet that Christ is COMING BACK SOON!!!
And there is no question but that this prophecy is a spiritual parallel to the resurrection of Christ because the Church is the Body of Christ. In fact -- the parallels between the time of Christ’s 1stComing and the time of His 2nd Coming are almost identical at every turn -- from the apostasy in the Church -- to the testimony of the saints being “silenced and killed” by the Pharisees and the Sadducees who are the buyers and sellers in the Temple of Christ. For the fall of the External Global Harlot Church and Satan’s rule at the time of Christ’s 1st Coming only FORESHADOWS Satan’s rule as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Church TODAY at the time of His 2nd Coming!!!
And John prophesied: “Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them” as we read in
Revelation 11:11. And clearly – the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICUTURE that Christ wanted to convey was that the 2 Witnesses who had been killed -- which represent His True Eternal Universal Church on Earth TODAY -- HAVE NOW COME TO LIFE BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD!!! And John saw what we are seeing NOW– that those of us in Christ’s True Eternal Church are no longer going to put up with Satan’s False Prophets “silencing and killing” our voice and our witness of THE TRUTH. And the STEALING of the Presidential Election is just one example of our FIGHTING BACK -- when we are seeing that every act of Fraud and unlawful criminal behavior imaginable has been committed to steal this Election!!! For just as John saw – we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are NOT going to remain SILENT ANY LONGER!!! In other words -- we are going to FIGHT by standing up for THE TRUTH of God’s Word and sounding the Trumpet for Christ that Judgment Day has INDEED COME!!!
And whether the unlawful Judges in the illegal Courts administer JUSTICE OR NOT -- Christ REVEALED to Daniel in the 1stof his last 4visions this very important TRUTH about these last of the LAST DAYS when Satan and the False Prophets in League with him have been Judged by the TRUE JUDGE of the Universal. And clearly the FINAL DAY of Judgment is right on the Horizon now when Satan and his Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” will FALL never to rise again. For Daniel heard the verdict of Satan and his False Prophets and then prophesied THIS TRUTH:
“But the court will sit, and his power (meaning SATAN’S POWER!!!) will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the Kingdoms under Heaven will be handed over to the Holy People of the Most High. (And) His kingdom (meaning Christ’s Kingdom of Heaven!!!) will be an Everlasting Kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey Him.” (Daniel 7:26-27)
CLEARLY – Christ REVEALED to John that when Babylon fell that it would be a cause for GREAT JOY for those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” as we read recorded in Revelation 18:20-24. And rest assured it is not a vindictive joy over the torment of our enemies – but a case of standing up for Christ’s Honor and Glory. In other words -- the Destruction of Babylon is a matter of strict JUSTICE. And in watching this JUSTICE being administered by the FINGER OF GOD TODAY -- it is in a sense our agreement with Christ that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are aligned with Christ’s DIVINE WILL and Plan to DEFEAT SATAN and to bring those in League with Satan to Justice!!!
And we should be rejoicing TODAY that the SUPREME ENEMY of Christ who is SATAN -- and is called in the Bible by the CRYPTIC NAMES of “THE ANTICHRIST” and “The Dragon” and the “little horn” and now “the 8thKing” in the 4th and Last Epoch rule of Satan’s Final Kingdom on this Earth -- is going to finally get his due along with those in League with him. And Christ’s name will be vindicated at long last!!!
Make no mistake -- “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that everyone on Earth today is in this Final Spiritual Battle of Good and Evil and Truth and LIES!!! And here’s “THE SPOILER” – CHRIST WINS!!! And no doubt He is moving mountains right now on the behalf of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” here on Earth to make sure that SATAN is DEFEATED!!! So “HOLD YOUR GROUND” -- the Battle is not over yet!!!
And until my next Commentary – just know that I will be forever listening to Christ tell me about these last events happening now in the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy until He sounds the LAST 7TH TRUMPET . . . . . Mary Sullivan
