Lately, I have been hearing another interpretation of 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4:

‘Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.’

The theory goes, that there is not ONE Antichrist, but many . . . that the temple is one’s body . . . and that ‘man’ and ‘son’ signify a multitude of people.  1 John 2:18 is used to support this theory:

‘Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.’

While I don’t deny the plain meaning of 1 John 2:18 . . . and even the potential alternate interpretation of 2 Thess. 2:3-4, I still hold to the traditional interpretation, that there will arise a global leader who is THE consummate Antichrist.  I believe there is plenty of Scripture to support that understanding.

Here this person is described in Daniel and Revelation. Notice how close the descriptions are.

Daniel describes this king as a ‘little horn’.

‘And the TEN HORNS out of this kingdom [are] TEN KINGS [that] shall arise: and ANOTHER shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.‘ (DANIEL 7:24)

‘I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another LITTLE HORN, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn [were] EYES LIKE THE EYES OF MAN, AND A MOUTH SPEAKING GREAT THINGS.’ (DANIEL 7:8)

‘And the ten HORNS which thou sawest are ten KINGS, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.’ (REVELATION 17:12)

He ‘speaks great things’.  He will reign for three and a half years (forty two months).

And there was given unto him A MOUTH SPEAKING GREAT THINGS AND BLASPHEMIES; and power was given unto him to continue FORTY [AND] TWO MONTHS. And he opened his mouth in BLASPHEMY AGAINST GOD, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.’ (REVELATION 13:5)

”And he shall SPEAK [GREAT] WORDS AGAINST THE MOST HIGH, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until A TIME AND TIMES AND THE DIVIDING OF TIME.’ (DANIEL 7:25)

‘And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall SPEAK MARVELOUS THINGS AGAINST THE GOD OF GODS, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.’ (DANIEL 11:36)

He is given permission to make war with the saints, and to overcome them.

And IT WAS GIVEN UNTO HIM TO MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth SHALL WORSHIP HIM, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.’ (REVELATION 13:6-8)

‘I beheld, and the SAME HORN MADE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, and prevailed against them‘ (DANIEL 7:21)

He will be responsible for the desecration of the sanctuary/holy place.

And arms shall stand ON HIS PART, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily [sacrifice], and they shall place the ABOMINATION THAT MAKETH DESOLATE.’ (DANIEL 11:31)

‘When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by DANIEL the prophet, STAND IN THE HOLY PLACE, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains’ (MATTHEW 24:15-16)

‘And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he* had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that THEY SHOULD MAKE AN IMAGE to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not WORSHIP the image of the beast should be killed.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads . . . ‘ (REVELATION 13:14-16)

* The second Beast

(It would seem apparent that this image of the beast is the abomination of desolation that Daniel spoke of.)

And now for the traditional view of the ‘son of perdition’ . . .

‘Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the SON OF PERDITION Who opposeth and EXALTETH HIMSELF ABOVE ALL THAT IS CALLED GOD, or that is worshipped*; so that he as God SITTETH IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD, shewing himself that he is God.’ (2 Thess. 2:3-4)

Compare this description with the descriptions of ‘The Antichrist’ above, and below . . .

‘And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall EXALT HIMSELF, and MAGNIFY HIMSELF ABOVE EVERY GOD, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.’ (Daniel 11:36)

Although Daniel 11:36 doesn’t specifically say he will sit in the temple, the verse is clearly parallel to the passage from 2 Thessalonians 2.  Daniel makes it clear that he will pollute the ‘sanctuary of strength’ and be responsible for placing the ‘abomination that maketh desolate’ there, so he definitely can be connected with the temple:

‘And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily [sacrifice], and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.’ (Daniel 11:31)

And we know that he will be present in the holy land . . .

‘He shall enter also into the glorious land . . . ‘ (Daniel 11:41)

‘And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain . . . ‘ (Daniel 11:45)

Because of the other strong correlations between his description in Daniel and Revelation (outlined earlier in this note), we make the assumption that he (‘The Antichrist’) seats himself in the temple of God, as part of his campaign of blasphemy.

Now understand, the term ‘the son of perdition’ is used one other time in Scripture: to describe Judas Iscariot.

‘While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the SON OF PERDITION; that the scripture might be fulfilled.’ (John 17:12)

What else does the Scripture tell us about Judas?

‘And after the sop SATAN ENTERED INTO HIM. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.’ (John 13:27)

Then ENTERED SATAN into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.’ (Luke 22:3)

Because this unusual term (‘son of perdition’) is used only twice, we wonder if there is a parallel. The situations are very similar, thus we make some assumptions . . . Judas was referred to as ‘the son of perdition’ AFTER Satan had entered into him. In parallel, we suppose that The Antichrist will be a man whom Satan (or another evil spirit) enters into.

Now we go to Revelation, where we find out just who that spirit is.

‘And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power . . . And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the BOTTOMLESS PIT, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.’ (Revelation 9:1-3,11)

(Revelation 9:11–the release of the spirit of The Antichrist from the bottomless pit–is the reason why the numbers 9-11 have significance for the occultist elite.)

Why do we assume this spirit is the one that indwells The Antichrist? Because Revelation 11:7 . . .

‘And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the BOTTOMLESS PIT shall MAKE WAR AGAINST THEM, AND SHALL OVERCOME THEM, and kill them.’ (Revelation 11:7)

repeats the wording of Revelation 13:7 . . .

‘And it was given unto him to MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, AND TO OVERCOME THEM . . . ‘ (Revelation 13:7)

which echoes the wording of Daniel 7:21 . . .

‘I beheld, and the same horn MADE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, and PREVAILED AGAINST THEM‘ (Daniel 7:21)

I hope this helps you understand the traditional view, and see the Scriptural support for this soon-coming global leader: a man possessed of the angel that has been imprisoned in the bottomless pit.  A man whom we often refer to as: ‘The Antichrist’.

Christian–do you support the idea of a Palestinian state?  A divided Jerusalem?  Are you buying the propaganda about the Palestinian ‘victims’?

God will judge the nations, for the last time, as a result of them taking Jerusalem and doing with it what they will.  Whether we understand it or not, Jerusalem belongs to Jehovah!  And (for some reason) is very precious to Him.

The ‘Palestinian Solution’–are you sure you want a piece of that action?

I would urge you to read this story, but half of you probably wouldn’t bother to follow the link.  Therefore I have cut and pasted it here (probably a no-no).  PLEASE read this.

If you aren’t convinced, or just don’t care, that God doesn’t want Jerusalem (even part of it) taken away from His people, then perhaps the arguments this writer makes can help you to understand why it is a BAD idea–a VERY bad idea!

“On the 11th of March, two Arab Muslim men climbed through the window of a home in the village of Ithamar, and massacred an entire family, killing both parents, stabbing a 4 year old boy twice in the chest, murdering an 11 year old while he sat up reading in bed and slitting the throat of a 3 month old baby girl.

A week later, Israeli and Arab pollsters conducted a survey in the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem. A third of the Arabs surveyed supported these atrocities.

All the justifications for a Palestinian state fall away in the face of this simple fact. That a third of the residents of any Palestinian state favor the murder of Jewish children. Not to achieve any larger goal, but just because they are Jewish children. To call for a Palestinian state in the face of that fact is to advocate genocide.

The Arab Muslims who approved of the attack gained nothing from their deaths. The dead children were not soldiers. They were not killed as collateral damage. Their deaths had no strategic value. There was no reason to kill them, but for the sake of killing them.

Thursday afternoon, Muslim terrorists carefully timed a school bus route and hit the bus. The bus had been full of students, but luckily most had gotten off before the attack took place. It wasn’t the first time they had deliberately targeted school buses. The most famous of which was the Avivim School Bus massacre all the way back in 1970. That same day a kindergarten was hit by a rocket. Schools have been frequent targets of Muslim terrorists. So have pregnant women. There’s a word for all this. Genocide.

Deliberately targeting children has only one tactical purpose. The extermination of an entire people. Had the Muslim world really wanted a Palestinian state, they could have created one by accepting the UN partition plan, or at any time between 1948 and 1967 when Gaza and the West Bank were in their hands. Had the Israeli Arabs who dub themselves ‘Palestinians’ wanted a state of their own, they could have had one between 1992 and 2011. They don’t want a state. What they want is a state of war.

Genocide cannot be resolved by territorial compromise. People who approve of slitting a baby’s throat and stabbing a 4 year old in the heart are not out for an extra kilometer here or there. The Nazis were not going to be appeased with the Anschluss or the Sudetenland– and Muslims are not going to be pacified with partial control over East Jerusalem. It isn’t East Jerusalem that they want. Or even all of Jerusalem. Or even all of Israel. What they really want is a reason to keep killing.

A man who murders a child might be insane, but millions of people who act and think that way are not insane. They have developed a moral code that says their victims are subhuman, while they are the ‘True People’. That code allows them to act out their worst impulses in the name of an ideal. Whether that ideal is the Third Reich or the Caliphate doesn’t matter at all. The ideal is there to justify the atrocity.


Men make laws to rise above the beast inside them. But sometimes it is the beast who begins making the laws. The Koran is the law of the beast. The law that says you may kill a man who is different than you and take his wife for your own. That he is less than you because he is different than you. The law of the beast does not seek the peace of equals, but the peace of predators and prey. The right of the beast to prey on you because you are not of his kind.

Liberals may plant Coexist stickers on their bumpers decorated with a string of religious symbols beginning with the Islamic star and crescent, that renders it first among equals– but it is all in vain. On his deathbed, Mohammed proclaimed that, “two religions cannot coexist in the Arabian Peninsula”. You may cry peace, peace– but there will be no peace. For the Prophet of Islam has commanded it. There can be no peace or coexistence. Only servitude, genocide or resistance. If you refuse to serve, then you will be massacred or driven out. That sentence is all you need to know to understand the Islamic war of extermination against Israel.

Palestine is genocide. It is genocide under the cloak of nationalism. Genocide under the facade of retaliation. Genocide dressed up as righteousness. Genocide disguised as the outcry of the oppressed. The Nazis dressed themselves in that same garb. They were the victims fighting back against oppression and they went on being the victims until they drowned half the continent in blood. The law of the beast is cunning, and the name of the book of the beast may change, but its end is always the same. The beast wants power, it wants glory and wealth– but above all things it wants blood.

To create a state inside Israel, a third of whose inhabitants are openly unashamed to say that they support the murder of children is no different than setting up a Nazi state in that same territory. It is not peace. There is nothing peaceful about it. It is every bit as peaceful as Islam, and as the years since the Oslo Peace Accords were signed have been. Though the cry of peace is constant, the call of the Muezzin silences it. Silences it with the peace of the dead. The voices of lost children sealed up in their graves.

Time has passed. The small graves grow. And there is no Palestinian state. Not for lack of trying. Year after year, the peace envoys go out from America and Europe. Time after time, Israeli leaders make their offers, the negotiations stall and the cemeteries fatten with the dead.

Like a flag waved before a bull, Islam waves peace before the world. Behind the flag is the sword. The Muslim watchers in the stands understand the game. They have played it since the time of Mohammed , offering empty truces and false promises. All these are a distraction. A charade. Only the sword is real. And when the bull has been weakened enough by the lances, when it stumbles desperately for peace, that is when the sword thrusts.

Palestine is not even the sword, it is the flag. The distraction so that no one sees that this war is about what Muslims have been doing to non-Muslims since Mohammed began his war of terror against the peoples of the Middle East. “Let the Israelis make their state, and we will make a counter-state. A state whose only purpose is the destruction of their state. A null-state of eternal grievance and unending wrath. A hole in the world for all the good and bad intentions of the world to fall into.” Look at the flag of Palestine. All we want is a state. Try and give us one, and watch the sword tear it through.

To call for a Palestinian state is to call for genocide. There is nothing peaceful about a call for genocide. It is not possible to peacefully implement genocide. Every mention of a Two State Solution is an encouragement to further violence and murder. A reward for the butchers who have been at this business for some 1300 years. Urge the creation of a Palestinian State and you might as well call for the resurrection of the Third Reich. There are linguistic and cultural differences, but both follow the law of the beast. Let there be no more lies about good intentions and no more self-deceit about the search for peace. The road to Palestine does not lead to peace, but to the cemetery.

It is time to stop the lies and tell the truth. The call to peace is the call to death. To promote the creation of a Palestinian state is a violent act. The peacemakers are collaborators in genocide. Their charges are the murderers. Palestine is genocide. It is the cultivated work of an ideology that has successfully turned millions of people into born serial killers or their accomplices. Its two political favorites are Barghouti of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade and the Hamas leadership. Their only accomplishment is the death toll, their house of state is the cemetery and their constitution is the ravings of a bigoted murderer. To stand for them is to stand for murder. To stand against them is to stand for life.”

Tell me:  who were the real victims here?

A Fourth Beast–Terrifying, Frightening, And Very Powerful

A Vision–It Is Happening Now

When Is The Rapture?

“Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others.

Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay.

As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle.  And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.

In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.”  Daniel 2: 40-44

This passage is the interpretation of a dream that king (of Babylon) Nebuchadnezzar had.  It consisted of a statue made of various metals.  It represented the various world empires that would come, beginning at the head (the Babylonian empire) and ending at the toes (the divided end of the Roman empire).

The early Roman empire was essentially divided in two–the East and the West.  The western portion of the Roman empire eventually morphed into the British Empire, which eventually morphed into the American Empire.

“Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. ”  Daniel 2:40

The ‘fourth kingdom’  (1st. Babylonian  2nd. Medo-Persian  3rd. Greek  4th. Roman) is also represented as the end-time ‘beast’ empire in Daniel 7:

“After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast–terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.”  Daniel 7:7

which is parallel to the description given in Revelation 13:

“And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.   The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.  One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast.  Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?”  Revelation 13: 1-4

Whether this fourth beast is a future, ‘revived’ United States, or whether it is a coalition or alliance of  ‘western nations’ that is led by the U.S., will remain to be seen.  But, I believe the dominant player and character of this ‘beast’ empire, will be America.

Accordingly, in the not-so-distant future, America (or the coalition of nations) will suffer a potentially fatal wound to one of its ‘heads’.

Once revived, and as a result of the trauma from the near-fatal blow, it will have a different character than before.  It will be anti-God through and through.  It will dominate by strong displays of power.  The previous structure of government and power (represented as  seven heads) will be destroyed by the near-fatal wound, and in its place will rise a structure ruled by ten leaders.

“Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. ”  Daniel 2:41

I believe this description is of America, and the ‘western nations’.  America is a nation of united sovereign states.  Thus, it can be said that it is divided into states.  Politically and ideologically, we are also very divided now.    While I believe this passage speaks primarily to the American Empire, I think similar conclusions can be drawn regarding the other ‘western nations’, many of which are members of the European Union.

“As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle.  And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay. ”  Daniel 2:42-43

I think this is a pretty good description of America today, as well as many western nations.  A sobering point here is that “the people . . . will not remain united”.

The final point to be made, is that Jesus IS coming back soon, to establish His kingdom on Earth.

“In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.”  Daniel 2:44

and

“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war.   His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.  He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.   The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.  Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”  He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.  On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great.”

Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.  The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.”  Revelation 19:11-21

His return is very near.

Daniel’s Vision At Night: ‘The first was like a lion’

Daniel’s Vision At Night: ‘a second beast, which looked like a bear’

Daniel’s Vision At Night: ‘there before me was [a third] beast . .. that looked like a leopard’

The Drunken Whore (Part 1)

An Attack On America Is Imminent! (The Drunken Whore Part 2)

Can you imagine what life would be like if there was no advertising of products? No billboards, no junk mail, no flyers, no spam . . . Do we ever stop and think how deeply we are affected by this constant barrage?

Here’s something I had not known, because it never occurred to me to wonder. Why do we say ‘diamonds are forever’? Why is it a tradition to buy a diamond engagement ring? Let me see if I can remember my facts . . . because De Beers ran an ad campaign in the 1930′s to create a market for diamonds.

Oh, here’s another factoid–De Beers* is connected with the wealthy elite that some refer to as ‘the puppet masters’. Yes, from what I can see, they are the ones that control the markets of precious jewels. It’s sort of like they are ‘glittering with gold, precious stones, and pearls’ . . . wait, where have I heard that before? Isn’t that how the ‘Whore of Babylon’ is described?

Here’s another thought. I heard a comment made by someone in power that we needed global governance because we have a global economy, etc. My immediate thought was–’well, if it’s going to cause us to need a global government, perhaps we should not have a global economy.’ Who is it that decided we needed a global economy in the first place? My guess would be that it was the ones who have appointed themselves to run it!

Here’s another thought: we are learning all about the conspiracies of the elite to create a NWO, and people seem to take it for granted that their agenda will come to pass. Maybe, but I have a different theory.

I believe the antichrist will rise up out of the elite, after they have done the ‘dirty work’ of creating the framework for a global government, then will turn and devour them. After that, he will impose his own form of world government.

The religion he will impose is primarily Islam (to which he may make some changes), enlarged to incorporate all the other religions  of the world–except Christianity and Judaism. This is not as big a stretch as some might imagine.  Satan/Lucifer is most clearly embodied in ‘allah’ but, in the end, all religions except Christianity and Judaism lead to him.

The blasphemy that is quietly sweeping the world is that allah is God.  Satan, the ‘Father of Lies’, claims to be God and most people just take his word for it. Make no mistake, allah is satan/lucifer–not God!!

What a red flag it should be when any Christian leader attempts to make peace with Islam, especially if he does not have the discernment to see that allah and God are polar opposites!!  Everything about allah is clearly anti-christ!!

Just as God’s commandments have formed the foundation for our legal system, The Koran and Islamic law (Sharia) will be the basis of his legal system.

His education system–brainwashing and indoctrination.

His leadership style–classic cult leader, including self promotion and the demand for complete submission and worship from his followers.

The rights of the individual–none. He considers everyone a part of himself (which is a trait that is characteristic of narcissists.) He views the people he rules as we might view our hair or fingernails. Do we ever stop to consider that our hair might not wish to be cut? How absurd! And similarly absurd, to him, is the idea that we might have free will that should be respected.

His form of government–dictatorial, obviously.

While the elite that rule over us are totally corrupt and steeped in the occult–we have had the lesser of two evils. God has held the devil back from ruling the world, but since mankind has been rebellious and is now, as in the days of Noah, completely evil, He is ceasing to restrain satan from fulfilling His agenda.

As bad as the plans of the NWO are, the system that the antichrist is putting in place is much, much worse.

It is also my belief that part of his destruction of the ‘Whore of Babylon’ (NWO elitists) is that he is revealing their doings to stir up a public outcry against them, so that he and the new system he implements will be seen as the world’s salvation. They will be the scapegoats, the justification for the strict control measures he puts in place, and the required surrender of our freedoms.

He is now beginning to ‘throw them under the bus’ by revealing that they are primarily Jewish, thus further provoking the world’s hatred of Jews and all who support Jews (Christians).

Think about how angry you were when you learned about the elite NWO plan to control us–I was furious for months!  How do you think the WHOLE  WORLD will feel about it, when the facts are revealed?  Especially when there is a concerted media effort to demonize those who are behind it?

Does Obama’s apology tour and bowing to dictators, etc. now begin to reveal his true agenda? He is courting those that hate America and Israel, distancing himself from us–showing these communist leaders that he is on their side, if they should decide to attack either one of us.

I’m expanding this post that I had written but not posted, with the following info. I  just found:

Somehow I ended up at the (Jewish) Anti Defamation League website, which I didn’t realize until later.  I was surprised, because I thought it was a site promoting Louis Farrakhan!  To my knowledge, I had never (before tonight) heard anything that he has said.

As I read these things I was nodding my head-‘-yes, these things are true.  These are all the things that I have been learning.  But isn’t he supposed to be a radical?’ In a word: yes!  Now, I didn’t interpret the words I read, the way that others have accused him of–but I only read a couple pages of things he has said, so I don’t know.

I agreed nearly completely with half of what was in his quotes that I read–the half that talks about the few Jews that comprise the elite, and how they are trying to foist their ‘New World Order’ upon us.

The other half of what he said, that promotes Islam, I completely disagreed with.

As it turns out, he is the leader of ‘The Nation of Islam’ in America, which is said to be ‘the catalyst for the growth and development of Islam in America’   (In other words, converting America into an Islamic nation).

I find it strange that I would agree so completely with  him about the NWO conspiracy.  If he is involved with Islam, he is deceived. What are the chances he is 100% wrong regarding God & Islam, yet nearly 100% right regarding the Jewish NWO conspiracy?

To me, this seems suspicious, and it makes me wonder  if the things we are learning about the elite/NWO conspiracy are being fed to us by satan.  It certainly would further his agenda.  It leads me to wonder if it really is 100% true . . . therefore, we need to be cautious about what we accept as truth, considering the possible source.

So(to me) it confirms what I said earlier–that the elite, Jewish, International Banker, NWO crowd will be outed by the antichrist, and further demonized for the public, which will lead to terrible persecution of Jews and, later, Christians.

Now, if the leader of Islam is talking about this, and is expressly saying that it is only a few Jews that are guilty–isn’t that a fair assessment?  Don’t they deserve whatever they get?  Only God really knows.

But why should we worry?  It will just be the guilty that reap what they sow, right?  No.  And the reason I know that is because satan hates ALL  the people of the twelve tribes of Israel, and he won’t miss the opportunity to wipe out every one of them if he can.  (There is another aspect to all of this too, that may really blow your mind . . . *)

Check out this statement he made:’

‘ Suppose Hitler was trying to destroy the international bankers controlling Europe, but he went about it by attacking a whole people. All Jews are not responsible for the evil of the few who do evil but certain Jews have used Judaism as a shield.”‘

That is where the quote ends.  I have a couple of thoughts:

1)  It’s interesting to hear someone say that Hitler might have been motivated by the very thing that I believe will motivate (or be claimed to motivate) the antichrist to make war on Jews.  I wholeheartedly believe that the same evil spirit(s) that controlled Hitler will control the antichrist too.

We have already seen many parallels between what Obama is doing and how Hitler rose to power.  (I suspect that this is happening in many other countries too because, in just the last few years, I know of several countries that have lost their freedom to dictators in a similar manner to what is happening in America.)  Communism is sweeping the world.

2)  Is he implying that 6 million Jews were just collateral damage in Hitler’s alleged hunt for the elite Jewish bankers?  Is he ok with that?  He says he’s not anti-Semitic, and he is very careful in his specific wording, from what I saw.  In other words, if we could take him at his word, I don’t believe he is anti-Semitic.  But can we take him at his word?

And, even if he is not anti-Semitic, does he really have any concern for the Jews who are not involved?  It seems pretty clear that Islamic doctrine is very adamant in its hatred of Jews.  Is it possible that he, the leader of Islam in America, is not anti-Semitic?  It’s quite unlikely.

There is a clause, in Islam, that if one feels that they are in danger from non-Muslims, they can smile, befriend them, and lie to them, while secretly cursing them in their heart.  So, although he says he is not anti-Semitic, I strongly suspect he is lying.

Obama says that Farrakhan lives in the same city (Chicago).  Well, to be more precise, he lives a block away from Obama’s Chicago home–and across the street from Marty Nesbitt, who Obama spent part of the day with on Memorial Day, according to  this article from 2 days ago!

So what?  Well, apparently guys came out of Farrakhan’s house complaining about where the press pool’s bus was parked.  For some absurd reason they chanted ‘Islam, Islam’ for 90 minutes, and the incident escalated, to some extent, drawing in even more Secret Service agents.

Did anyone happen to notice where the president was for that 90 minutes?  In my opinion, it was a not-so-clever smokescreen to allow Obama time to meet with his mentor Farrakhan.  With war ready to break out in the Middle East between Israel and (Shi’a Muslim) Iran,  with Obama using every means to manipulate Netanyahu into capitulating to the demands of the Palestinians, with plans to build a Mosque (permanent Islamic embassy) at Ground Zero, etc.– what could they possibly have to discuss . . . ?

Reportedly, Farrakhan has called Obama ‘The Messiah’. But, he is the leader of Islam in America–so for Christians and Jews I will translate:

  • Islam = anti Christianity
  • Islamic ‘God’ (Allah) = the name of blasphemy aka The Antichrist
  • Islamic Messiah = anti Christ

In summary, be wise!  Not everything that you see on the horizon is going to come to pass, nor is all of it the substance of the NWO conspiracy.

What you are seeing, as vague forms in the darkness are two evil, human, political/religious ideologies (that are empowered by satan), and they are vying for control of mankind–the Whore of Babylon (elitist NWO who have been in charge), and the satanic Islamic seven headed, ten horned beast that is rising up from underneath her.

Originally satan was working through the NWO elite/Whore of Babylon, but now that she has accomplished what he was using her for, he is throwing her under the bus and redeploying his forces.    (Same old tactic: tempt, get proof and pictures, throw under the bus)

Watch her destruction and rejoice!!  But woe to us now for what–and who–comes next . . .

* One more interesting note about De Beers–we can thank them for our new pornographic airport scanners!  They invented this technology in order to prevent miners from smuggling diamonds out of their mines.

Do You Recognize This Man?

Coming Soon, To America . . .

We Are Living In Revelation

*There is another aspect to all of this too, that may really blow your mind . . .

The ‘Western World’, NATO nations, etc. is the 10 ‘missing’ tribes of Israel.

You can check out authorSteven M. Collins’ site for more information on America’s place in end time prophecy, as well as very interesting blog posts regarding current events and how they may tie in with prophecies.

I highly recommend his site.  His posts (and books) are well researched and the truth he shares will greatly expand your understanding of the reasons behind what is happening in geopolitics today.

Are you among the many people that cast a suspicious eye towards every new invention, and every new government initiative?  If you’ve read the book of Revelation, and know about the dreaded ‘Mark Of The Beast’, I don’t think you can help it.  (Or are you someone who thinks it’s all just foolish paranoia?)

We are missing the point!  We are so intently watching the one hand, that we are not seeing what the other is doing.

RFID chips are not evil–but in the hands of evil people they can be something to fear.  A national identity card is not evil, nor are eye scanners, but in the hands of evil people they can provide power and control.  These are the sort of things we have been worried about for decades, but I say ‘stop worrying!’ . . . about these things, and be concerned instead, about the type of government we are creating!!

I agree that communism and socialism are bad.  I don’t want America to go down that road–that’s not the way I want to live!  We’re getting closer to describing the problem, but even this isn’t the issue!!  The issue is the type of government that has so much control over our lives that it dictates how we must live, and enforces compliance with brutal efficiency!  I don’t think that type of government is necessarily limited to communist or socialist regimes.

These other issues are important, and we need to stay vigilant–but lets not get so intently focused on them that we fail to see that changes are quickly being made which have put us on the path to a totalitarian government!!  I may be wrong, but I don’t think it would make much difference whether a Republican, a Democrat, and Independent, or a Socialist sits on the presidential throne.

We have just witnessed the birth of a big, powerful, new Amerikan government that hems us in and watches our every move . . . that has access to every phone call or email . . . that can track our whereabouts most of the time . . . that abolishes the rights we have legislated for our protection . . . that punishes and eliminates dissent–branding us as terrorists or traitors . . . that no longer is comprised of representatives that are chosen by the people . . . that dictates to the press how, what, and when it can report . . . that denies us a say in how we are governed . . . that eliminates our freedom to speak in opposition . . .  that determines the standard of living that is ‘fair’ for us to have . . . that takes authority over their children away from parents . . . that makes it illegal to disagree . . . that takes more and more power away from the people and keeps it for itself . . . that submits us, regardless of our will, to a global ruling authority . . . !!  Our new government is a baby beast, with a life of its own.   Don’t be fooled because it is small.   Now that it is born, it will grow, and grow, and grow!

I don’t care if you are a Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, Indepent, Libertarian, or what have you–

Is this the kind of government you want to live under?

Again, forget about the individual issues for a moment–just take a good look at the government structure that is being built!!  Look, most of all, at the new regulatory agencies and enforcers.  Everything is being designed from a viewpoint of forced compliance. The Amerikan government is no longer a framework, within which we can pursue our dreams–it has become a prison, from which we cannot escape–where we live, in fear, a life devoid of freedom and choice.

The agenda may, or may not, be to your liking.  That is not the issue.   The policies and agenda can change, depending on who is in power.  But what won’t change is the structure.  What won’t be returned is our freedom or our personal power.  THIS is the kind of government that conceives of an idea like ‘The Mark of the Beast’ and imposes it on the people.  This is what you need to worry about–not the tools that will be used, but who is wielding them! Do you still think it’s a good idea to feed this baby beast?

And, as if living with that kind of oppression weren’t bad enough, you can rest assured that the punishment for any sort of noncompliance will be much worse.  No longer will you be able to shout in protest: ‘I have my rights!!’, because you won’t (have any rights).

Don’t assume you can hold a demonstration or go on strike.  Don’t assume your Miranda Rights will still be guaranteed.  Don’t assume you’d still be entitled to one phone call.  Don’t assume the court would provide you a lawyer if you can’t afford one.  Don’t assume that you’d be innocent until proven guilty.  Don’t assume that you could get out on bail.  Don’t even assume you’d have the right to a trial.

You see, what all the ‘Tea Partiers’, ‘Patriots’, etc.  are fighting for, is that our CONSTITUTION remain in effect!  Because that is all that protects us from the rule of tyrants. (And tyrants are the ultimate terrorists!!  It just happens that, when they are in power, they clothe themselves in government uniforms–which lend them an aura of legitimacy.)

Anyone telling you that the protests and Tea Parties are about something different is either missing the point, or they’re lying to you!

Now that you know what we’re fighting for, let me ask you this:

Shouldn’t all Americans be fighting side by side in this battle?

(I know nothing about Scott Brown.  This is not a commentary on him in any way.)

As much of a relief as it is that another Democrat did not win the Massachusetts election–it is not time for ‘back to business as usual’.  Never again should we let down our guard.  Although the win of a Republican was strategically important, it does not mean we are safe–not by any stretch of the imagination.

No matter how similar to us they may seem, there is something inherently different in most people that run for office–especially those that actually are elected.  That hunger for power and position is something that should be viewed with a certain amount of wariness on our part.  Besides that, they are human–and humans are fallible.  Power corrupts, and it spends a good bit of time prowling around the halls of our government, looking for an opportunity.

Remember: there are two types of people, against whom no one can testify:

  1. those who are innocent
  2. those who leave no witnesses alive

We still live in perilous times.  No one can be trusted 100%.  I hope, through all the influential people whose corruption has been exposed–in politics, finance, etc.–over the last couple of years, that you will take the lesson to heart.

The problem here is not one of political parties.  It is one of behind the scenes affiliations.  Hopefully you have learned from all that has been said about  ‘The Bilderbergers’, the ‘Trilateral Commission’, and the ‘Council on Foreign Relations’, etc.  Hopefully you are now aware that there are powerful forces working behind the scenes.  The real problem is not Republican vs. Democrat.  The problem is with the elite that are behind them both.

I’m sure there is still MUCH more that could be exposed.  I imagine all that we have seen is only the tip of the iceberg.  There is something EXTREMELY suspicious about a bipartisan congress that would just go along with everything the president was putting forth–at least, at the beginning.  There is some kind of real power that brings that about–whether it be persuasion, bewitchment, or blackmail.  That power is still present in the halls of congress.  No matter who we elect, the real test will be what they DO when they get there.  In my belief, it is only the power of God that can truly stand against such evil and triumph.

But don’t be fooled! The enemy (Satan) can pick a fine looking man, dress him up in robes, and give him a cross to hold out in front of him.  He may rant and rave against the powers of darkness, and give every appearance of being in opposition to them.  He may do miraculous things–signs and wonders. He may very well have the absolute endorsement of all the most respected religious leaders of our day.  But . . . that does not mean he is filled with the Spirit of God!!

The people behind the scenes will not relinquish power without a “hellacious” fight.  Nor will the enemy of our souls–who is the force that empowers these people.  His time is short, and he is desperate.  Never again–until Christ returns–will we be able to take a deep breath and relax.  We must always be on guard, vigilant, and discerning.

The pendulum swings both ways.  ‘The people have spoken!’  Expect to see more ‘God fearing’ candidates–more people running on religious ideals–and expect to see them winning.  Don’t think that Satan, and the elites, won’t make full use of that!  Expect them also to put forth candidates that are religious, that make claims of being Christians.  These are people without conscience–bodies without souls!

The elite look at the people of the world without compassion–as mere problems to be solved, numbers to crunch, etc. They aim to purposely depopulate the world!  They are advocates of eugenics, genocide, euthanasia.  They see war as a means to prosperity!  This is nothing but a giant chess game to them.  They will put forth candidates that the people will vote for, and they count on the masses to be blind and gullible!  Expect a ‘great awakening’ of religious ideals to sweep the nation politically–but only some of it will be genuine!

That being said–the real danger is that the one who does the most to unravel America may be a ‘Christian’!! Someone who claims to be a Christian.  But here is the problem:  there are more people claiming to be Christians today, than really are Christians, and we have been as naive as little lambs.  When someone tells us they are a Christian, we have taken them at their word–but ‘by their fruit you will know them’!!

If you look into the connections the Bush family has with the organizations mentioned above (and Prescott Bush with Auschwitz and Monowitz), you will see that they are among the elites.  They may call themselves Christians–and that is for God to decide–but I see them as wolves in sheep’s clothing!  We believed we had a Christian president, but that is when the most of our liberties were stripped away–and we still have many people who haven’t woken up to that!

Then along came Obama, claiming to be a Christian too.  Don’t tell me, after all you’ve seen him do, that you don’t believe he was a disciple of Reverend Wright!  He most certainly believes, and concurs wholeheartedly with, everything that man has to say!  Look at his voting record on abortion!  Look at his backing of the gay, lesbian, transgender agenda!  Etc., etc., etc.  He says he’s a Christian–so what!!  HE’S A LIAR!! Let the record show, this man has lied more than he has told the truth!!  If you want to know the real truth, you’d better look back on all he has promised–and expect the opposite to be in your future instead!  This man will look you in the eye and lie–and you’ll believe it!  He has a powerful annointing of evil!

So, now the people have spoken and the pendulum will swing the other way.  Let me warn you of what may lie ahead.

Don’t be surprised if our next president appears as a strong Christian, well respected, annointed–and maybe he has been, but somewhere along the way he fell into (or will fall into) ‘secret sin’.  The enemy found a weakness and capitalized on it, seducing him into deep spiritual darkness.  Then, knowingly or not, he ‘made a deal with the devil’.  And, let me tell you what–unless America has truly repented, this man will have God’s endorsement to be our president.

You can expect the ‘Christian’ leaders of the day to wholeheartedly back him.  A few Christians (there are Christians and there are ‘Christians’) will discern, by the Spirit, what he is and, in alarm, will try to warn people–but it will be of no use.  Today ‘Christians’ far outnumber Christians, and he will be one of them.  Today’s backslidden, lukewarm ‘Christians’ will be completely comfortable with him, because that’s the only kind of Christian most of them know.  It is said that ‘we get the leaders we deserve’.

To add to the illusion–God’s Watchmen may not speak.  If America does not repent, and God continues to visit judgment upon America, it may be, that at some point He instructs them not to speak.  Better it is for judgment to do its work and bring forth repentance, than for people to find a way to avoid it, and go to eternal destruction.

So now you know, and if your heart is right, you may discern it when it happens–you may even be one of the voices calling out a warning.  But if God has sent the judgment and the delusion, people will continue to blindly follow, and what is decreed will come to pass.  There is a time to speak–and a time to remain silent.  Let the Holy Spirit be your guide.

All that is just the prelude to what this post was to be about:  the second beast aka ‘The False Prophet’.

Beware of the second beast! All the attention these days is given to looking for the first beast and avoiding it.  The first beast will blaspheme God.  The first beast will make war against God’s people.  The first beast will have authority over all the earth.  The first beast is an empire and whoever is its leader.

But it is the second beast that really causes men to be damned.  It seems to me that it is the second beast that takes center stage in world events.

The second beast will exercise all the authority of the first beast.  The second beast makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast.  It is the second beast that performs great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from  heaven.  It is the second beast that deceives the inhabitants of the earth, by way of the signs he performs. It is the second beast who commands men to create an image in honor of the first beast.  It is the second beast who gives breath to the image of the first beast–so that it can speak and cause all who refuse to worship the image (itself) to be killed.   It is the second beast that causes everyone to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead in order to buy or sell–a mark which is the name of the beast (first or second?) or the number of his name (first or second beast?).

Especially take note of this:  The second beast has ‘two horns like a lamb’ but ‘speaks like a dragon’.  We already know the dragon is Satan–but what about the ‘two horns like a lamb’?  My interpretation of this (I could be  wrong) is that the second beast is a false Christianity, with two aspects (Protestant and Catholic?).

With that possibility in mind, read over the paragraph above.  Keep in mind too, that the prophecy will be literally fulfilled–but perhaps not in the way we interpret and picture it, ahead of time.  Meaning: we tend to form a picture of how things will happen, based on our interpretation of what the verses say and, in hindsight, comparing events to the Scriptures, we will be able to see that things were literally fulfilled–but most likely, not at all how we had predicted!

I’ll point out a few things that we might easily misinterpret, because they have many possible interpretations:

  • will exercise all the authority of–in what manner will he exercise it?
  • will exercise all the authority of–is this authority granted by man (such as by election), or is it granted by God, or both?
  • makes the earth and its inhabitants worship–to what degree does he ‘make’ them do it?  Does he round them up in the night, or does he just say that they need to do it, or does he get them so riled up that they do it on their own (like at a concert?)?
  • makes the earth and its inhabitants worshipin what manner do they worship?  Do they physically bow down several times a day, as Muslims do?  Or do they just talk about it, and praise it all the time?
  • fire to come down from heaven–is it real, literal fire coming down out of the sky?  Is it a fireball?  Is it lightning?
  • commands men to create an image–how does he command it?  In an authoritative voice via television?  By passing a law? Does he command everyone?  Or does he just tell a few guys on his staff to do it, without fanfare?
  • commands men to create an imagewhat is this image?  A statue?  A logo?  A hologram? Some marvel of future technology that we haven’t seen yet?  Something so ordinary we wouldn’t even think of it as fitting the Scripture?
  • gives breath to the image–will it literally be alive, having its own consciousness? Will it be ‘animated’? Will it just be something, powered by electricity, that gives the appearance of being alive?
  • speak and cause all who refuse to worship the image to be killed–does it just stir up animosity against those who refuse, so that people hate and kill them?  Does it put a bounty on them?  Does it issue a fatwa?  Does it pass a law, that all must worship it, that carries the death penalty?
  • cause all who refuse to worship the image to be killed-all who verbally say ‘no’?  All who protest? Even those who just passively avoid it?
  • causes everyone to receive a mark–endorses it?  Deceives them into it?  Shames them into it–calling them ‘nuts’, ‘religious fanatics’, ‘superstitious’?  Legislates it?  Rounds them up in the night if they don’t?

These are just some of the possibilities–ones I can think of. This should illustrate to you that there are MANY ways to misinterpret any or all of the things that will come.  The only way you will know is if God reveals it to you.  He may reveal the whole picture ahead of time, or He may only show us one step at a time–or He may keep it veiled and reveal events as having fulfilled prophecy after they happen!

I study, and pray, and seek the interpretation–but God has only revealed a few things to me.  What He has shown me instead is how many ways things could be interpreted, when looking ahead.  He has also shown me that even the most respected Bible scholars and ‘prophets’ have a lot of errors in their understanding.  I’m nobody special, so it’s not surprising that He might not reveal it to me.  What is telling, is that no one really seems to know–at least, no one seems to know the whole picture.

So, if no one has the answers you are looking for–what do you do?  If, even at this late date, God has not opened the prophecies to our understanding, what are any of us to do?  What is important is to focus, not on events that you want to find a way to avoid, but on Him!  If you are serving Him, yet had never heard any of the prophecies, He would still show you the way to walk.  The people who will most quickly recognize ‘The Beast’, ‘The Antichrist’ and ‘The Mark’ are not the ones who spend the most time worrying about them, but rather those who dwell in His presence!  Trust that if you know Him and walk with Him daily, He will not let you be deceived, nor will you accidentally take The Mark!  He is fully able to guard what you have entrusted to Him!

‘Buy Gold From Me . . . ‘  (Jesus, to the ‘Lukewarm Church’)

Believe There Are Many Ways To God?

Only One Way?  How Intolerant!

I need to be honest–I have so immersed myself in endtimes prophecies and current events that I’m battling a spirit of fear.  Fear can come from within–it is instinctive–or from outside of us.  The enemy uses a spirit of fear to fight against us.  I am telling you, not because I have been overcome, but so that you know I am just like you!

I am not superhuman, superspiritual, or whatever!  I am not always fearless and bold! I have strength, when I draw close to God and draw my strength from Him. HE gives me boldness and strength.  He will do the same for you.  Fight the fear and draw close to God!  Do not shrink back, do not let fear overcome you.

Remember the old saying ‘give him an inch and he’ll take a mile’?  This is very true with the powers of darkness.  If you retreat, they will be emboldened to advance even further.  You have to hold them off–and even better–advance on them!  When you move forward, in God’s will, He will strengthen and empower you. He has been waiting a very long time to see most of us stand up and fight.

There is no better way to victory than to draw out your spiritual sword and do battle with the evil spirits that come against you and your family.  You don’t fight against flesh and blood–but against the spiritual powers of darkness.

You may be content to ‘hold them off at the gate’ of your mind, or your physical property–but do you think they’ll stop there?  Do you want to be hunkered down, peeking out to see if they are still there, waiting for an opportunity to come back?  I say no!! Fight beyond your gates to create a ‘buffer zone’.  Send the enemy fleeing beyond the boundary you determine, and hold onto what you have conquered!

Spiritually, we have lost America.  We have been driven back to our churches, where many are hunkered down, hoping the enemy won’t come any further.  Look behind you!  While you are peeking out the windows at the evil forces outside, evil spirits have already infiltrated your congregation!

There are four boundaries you need to endeavor to  win back–in this order:

  1. Your mind and body
  2. Your family’s minds and bodies
  3. Your home
  4. Your church
  5. Your community (small town or neighborhood)

You continue advancing outwards as you gain ground.  But you have to be sure you are thoroughly purging the forces of evil as you go.  Liken it to the way that God told the Israelites to totally give over to destruction the towns they were invading.  They were to not leave alive man or beast, and then they were to destroy the buildings and bodies with fire.

Hear me–I am not saying to fight against men, or to fight in the physical realm!  What we see in the actions of the children of Israel was in the physical realm, but what was happening in the spiritual realm was more significant.

The Israelites were purging the land of evil spirits–and they didn’t even know it!  This is why it was SO important not to leave alive a single man or beast, whom the evil spirits could enter into, and why they were not to leave a single building that the spirits could haunt.  They were to leave them no place to go, so that they would flee the land!  (As you know, you can’t kill demonic spirits.  You have to remove what they need to live, so that they will flee!)

I’ll be honest, until this moment I have believed, because of my faith in God’s righteousness and goodness, that what God told the Israelites to do was right and He had a reason–but it seemed very harsh to me.  We are talking about genocide.  But as I am writing this, He has opened my eyes to understand why.  I had never seen it as a spiritual battle before.  Now it makes perfect sense!

The Bible could simply have summarized to say that the Israelites completely destroyed the people they conquered, or something to that effect.  But instead, it was shown, town by town and stressed again and again.  And it was duly noted when the Israelites failed to do as God had directed.  This is because God wanted us to understand the importance of this!

I think most of us do realize it was very important, even if we haven’t completely understood why.  And I’m ashamed to say, I guess I just concluded that these were people God wanted to eliminate from the face of the Earth.  I understand now that God was not eternally against these people (although He was bringing  judgment upon them), but against the evil entities that they had given place to.  Their lands had become a ‘hot spot’ of demonic activity and God wished to scatter those spirits (as He scattered the people at Babel, because of what they intended to do).

I also want to point out, that after the Israelites had killed the people, the disembodied spirits could just as well have entered into them–if they had given them an opening, through sin in their life!!  God did not begin revealing about spiritual warfare to His people until Jesus came.  The only way that the Israelites could be safe when fighting the spiritual forces of darkness, was to live lives of purity, and to have God present in their midst.

Do you see now?  Just as we train up our children, God told them WHAT to do (and was very strict about it), but He didn’t try to explain WHY, because they would not have understood.  This is also why He was quick to purge those who were sinful and rebellious from amongst the midst of the Israelites (which had also seemed a tad bit extreme to me before).

This is a picture of how we must fight now!  We must live lives of purity and have the power of the Holy Spirit within us.  Then, as God directs, we must advance upon, and scatter, the spiritual forces of evil.  (He is NOT calling us to fight against  people, but rather the unseen forces behind them.)  When we do this, He will empower and protect us.

It is time to enter the battle!  Purge the evil from your own life and mind, then lead your family in doing likewise.  Then, do what you can in your church–if your church isn’t interested in being pure  and living righteously–leave it!

Then, contend for your town.  (I may be wrong, or just missing the point–but I like peace and safety.)  The country is lost.  The states are lost.  But, it may be possible to ‘win back’ a few towns and communities from the enemy, if we try.

Pray for your town’s leaders. Vote for righteous men and women.  Clean up your town of filth and depravity (do battle in the spiritual realm before attempting to confront or convince people).  Battle the spiritual forces of wickedness, and pray that God will create a safe haven for you and your family.

If, after all you’ve done, only your home is free of the demonic–then thank God for that, and remain vigilant.  But how much better it will be if we have some towns and communities that are oases, free of demonic oppression, in the days ahead!!

One other point:  I hear some talk about ‘the remnant’, almost as if the people who form the remnant are superior to other Christians.  Don’t fall into that trap of pride!!  No one is a remnant yet–we are all Christians just now waking up and beginning to learn the truth from deception.

Unfortunately, as the truth is presented to them, some people are choosing not to love the truth, and God will send them a powerful delusion to believe instead.  This is what is called ‘the great rebellion’, ‘the great apostasy’, ‘the great falling away’.  The love (of righteousness, of truth, of God) of many will grow cold.  Many will turn away.  After that, the  backslidden/apostate Christians will begin to persecute and hate the remnant that were faithful to the truth*.

When the persecution begins–then the ones who hold to the truth can be called ‘the remnant’.  To do so now is to risk ‘writing off’ people who may or may not be Christians now, but who are being misled and deceived by false doctrines–for whom there may yet be hope of repentance!!


*Don’t be surprised if, in those days, a ‘Christian’ president is elected and (apostate ) ‘Christians’ form a majority in Congress.  With great pride, patriotism and zeal they would fight the unrighteous (who have been in power) and the ‘fanatics’/’religious zealots’ (the remnant that hold to the truth).

The ‘false prophet’ will be

  • a false religion that appears Christian (much of this is already in the church),
  • and promotes the ‘beast’ empire (the beast is not a man)

[The beast (empire) will rule over the nations of the world.  This may not be really obvious. It may be a lot like America does today, through occupation, military bases,  and taking authority over countries by various means (regime change, sanctions, and other means of control).  The beast (empire) will have final say, and will punish those nations that don’t fall in line.]

It is this false prophet/false church that will create the image of the empire that is to be worshipped (through intense patriotism), and whose mark is required to participate in buying and selling in the global marketplace.

Don’t be surprised that it would be ‘Christians’ that persecute ‘the remnant’–after all, it was the Jews that killed Jesus!  There is no more formidable adversary than one who is deceived into thinking that they hold the truth of God and are fighting on His behalf.

Lest you think the same of the remnant, remember this:  the remnant, those who do have the truth of God, fight spiritually but the deceived will fight in the physical realm–by putting to death their ‘enemies’.

Will They Take Away Our Children?

Is It Time For The Unveiling?

I recently praised a little girl for taking the time to thank God for her food.  I added that some people don’t think about God very much.  Her response shocked me: ‘Because they think they are Him?’ she asked.  Kids can say some really profound things!

A child recently asked me ‘What Does the Devil look like?’  I interpreted that to mean: ‘How can I know it’s the Devil if I see him?’  A very good question.

As I was explaining that nobody knows what he looks like, and mostly you know if it’s the Devil by how you feel in your heart, I was asked if he was white.  I had to chuckle.  ‘Some people would say so’,  I responded.   I added that others would say he was black and some would say he is red.   Then I explained that he might look like a shining star, or like a dragon, or a snake.

It’s not something we can pin down.  The Scriptures say that he can ‘even appear’ as an angel of light, from which it can be inferred that isn’t how he usually looks.

He is also referred to as a dragon, in Revelation, and a serpent, in Genesis, which seduced Eve to sin (and resulted in all serpents being cursed to crawl on their belly).   That would infer, prior to that curse he had legs.  A ‘serpent’ /snake with legs could be describing a dragon here too.  And, there are other places in Scripture that translate the word ‘serpent’ or ‘dragon’, depending on the version of translation.

Satan, the Dragon, was thrown down to Earth, from Heaven, when he rebelled against God.  He is referred to, in some places, as ‘Leviathan’ and is said to live in the sea’.  Chapter 41, in the book of Job, is completely devoted to the description of a dragon. I don’t know if this is describing Satan, or just any generic dragon that lived on Earth at the time.

Children don’t have any problem believing this, but most adults probably see it as pretty far-fetched.  We are used to seeing angels portrayed as little, naked toddlers with wings, or as women with blond hair, arrayed in white silk, with wings on their backs and halos on their heads. How in the world did we settle on these images?

Unless I’m forgetting something, the angels that Scripture describes are mature, masculine beings–or ‘living creatures’ that look like amalgamations of different animal and human parts, with wings, and many eyes all over their bodies!

Jesus also, in Revelation, appears as a lamb that looked as if it had been slain.  Apparently ‘shape shifting’ is the norm in the spiritual realm.

Which brings me to the reason I took the time to write this post: some of the things that we see in the years ahead may seem to be straight from a science fiction novel!

I suspect this for several reasons:

  1. In studying the book of Revelation, it is clear to me that the demon spirit that either is (or will possess the man who is) The Antichrist, is not Satan.  Rather, it is a spirit whose name is Apollyon.
  2. Shape shifting is part of the tradition of sorcery.
  3. I sense that Satan is using Hollywood to desensitize us to horrendous looking beasts and shape shifters.

So what does Apollyon have to do with it?  Maybe nothing.  But I have a hunch that he is a demon with a nonhuman appearance, and that he is included in ancient folklore.

Although his description is similar to the description of Satan/The Dragon in Rev. 12, they are not the same.

In Revelation 17 it is explained that he ‘once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction.  The inhabitants of the earth . . . (who aren’t Christians) . . . will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come.’ (emphasis mine)  ‘The beast who once was, and  now is not, is an eighth king.’  (This refers to a vision involving 7 kings that come before him.  He is the eighth, and final king to rise from that kingdom–the Antichrist.)

Anyhow, my interpretation of the verses above gives me the idea that he may have a nonhuman appearance and be found in the writings of ancient man.

Ultimately though, if we are walking with the Lord, we will recognize him by the response of our spirit.  Will Christians that aren’t walking with the Lord recognize him?  I don’t know.  I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes.  Will nonChristians recognize him?  Definitely not.  (Although perhaps those that are involved in the occult will–but that’s a whole different story.  They may know he is a demon, but who know what twisted beliefs they have regarding what that means.)

Here is how I know for sure than nonChristians won’t recognize him:

  • ‘. . . but the fatal wound had been healed.  The whole world was astonished and followed the beast.’ (emphasis mine)
  • ‘All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast–all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.’
  • ‘Because of the signs he (the second beast/false prophet) was given power to do on behalf of the first beast (Antichrist), he deceived the inhabitants of the earth.’
  • ‘For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect–if that were possible.’
  • ‘The coming of the lawless one (Antichrist) will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing.  They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.  For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.’

I don’t like to devote a lot of my time to speculation, but I thought it worthwhile to post this–in the hope that you will keep an open mind, and be willing to ‘think outside the box’ when it comes to prophecies. Most of all, I’d hate to see you have your mind so firmly made up about how things will happen that you fail to realize when they do.

We don’t know for sure how the fulfillment of prophecies will ‘look’, but I expect in a lot of cases it will be so mundane that it would be easy to miss–or so unbelievable and astonishing that we will be caught off guard!
