ANOMIA

There are two powerful forces at odds today: the antichrist spirit of lawlessness, and the Holy Spirit.  The whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one–even, unfortunately, most of what professes to be ‘The Church’ in the developed world.

If you will examine what lies at the heart of many of the skirmishes, you will see it is rebellion against God’s authority and God’s Law.  Some of the battles are even specifically about removing the Ten Commandments from public places.

The Greek word for lawlessness is ‘anomia’ G458

1) the condition of without law
..a) because ignorant of it
..b) because of violating it
2) contempt and violation of law, iniquity, wickedness

In Greek, ‘law’ is: nomos and ‘without’ is: a-.  Therefore, to express the idea of what we would call ‘lawlessness’, there is no more perfect way to express it in Greek than by the word: ‘anomos’ or ‘anomia’.  Certainly, lawbreaking can also be called wickedness, evil, or sin, but the most perfect translation of the word is ‘lawless’ or ‘lawlessness’.

Where does this word show up in the Bible?  In some very key places:

‘Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (ANOMIA).’  (Matt. 7:22-23)

Interesting–many people that call Jesus Lord and do wonderful works in His name . . . yet practice lawlessness . . . will be rejected on judgment day.  Keep this one in mind.

‘As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity (ANOMIA); And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.’  (Matt. 13:40-42)

Wow, here it is again already . . . tares growing amongst the wheat . . . children of the wicked one amongst the children of God.  He will send His angels to gather all those children of the wicked one, who practice LAWLESSNESS, and they will be cast into a furnace of fire.

‘Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity (ANOMIA)’ (Matt. 23:38)

Another description of the tares.  I’ve seen a lot of those, professing to be ‘Christians’.  It could be why ‘Christianity’ stinks to so many nonbelievers.  After all, today’s mainstream, western ‘Christian’ arrogantly calls sinners ‘sinners’ and tells them they are going to burn in hell . . . yet preaches a gospel that says that the children of God can live any way they please (ANOMIA).

‘And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.  And because iniquity (ANOMIA) shall abound , the love of many shall wax cold .’  (Matt. 24:10-12)

When we start looking specifically at ‘lawlessness’ (as opposed to ‘sin’ or ‘wickedness’) a lot of our key end-times Scriptures pop up, don’t they?  The significance of lawlessness has been hidden in the translations.

 

‘I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity (ANOMIA) unto iniquity (ANOMIA); even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness’  (Romans 6:19)

As Christians, we are NOT to be lawless people!

‘Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness(ANOMIA)? and what communion hath light with darkness?’  (2 Cor. 6:14)

How can we even claim to be Christians, if we walk in lawlessness?  According to this verse, righteousness has nothing in common with lawlessness.

 

‘For the mystery of iniquity (ANOMIA) doth already work : only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way.’  (2 Thess. 2:7)

In this verse, there are no Greek words saying ‘he’ or ‘who’.  It could just as easily be translated as ‘that which’ . . . ‘only that which now letteth’.  What restrains lawlessness?  The law–if people choose to, or are compelled to, obey it.  Which leads us to another end-times passage:

‘Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying], Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.’  (Psalms 2:1-3)

In the end-times, the unsaved world rebels against the Lord and conspires together to cast off His ‘bands and cords’ . . . His restraints . . . His law and moral values . . . which constrain them.  ‘Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.’  (Allistair Crowley, a famed Satanist and homosexual serial-killer pedophile who called himself ‘the beast’)

 

This one is a little harder to understand the translation, so I will include the Greek for comparison:

‘Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth (ANOMIA) also the law (ANOMIA) for sin is the transgression of the law (ANOMIA) .’  (1 John 3:4)

‘paV o poiwn thn amartian kai thn anomian poiei kai h amartia estin h anomia’

To use the exact translation of ‘lawlessness’, I would translate it this way:

‘Whosoever committeth sin also lawlessness (ANOMIA) commits, for sin is lawlessness (ANOMIA).’

There is simply no excuse for a Christian to live a sinful lifestyle!!  To live a sinful lifestyle, under the guise of being ‘covered in Christ’s righteousness’ or our actions being ‘under the blood’ is to blaspheme Christ!  The Scriptures tell us that Jesus hated LAWLESSNESS!

‘But unto the Son [he saith], Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and HATED iniquity (ANOMIA) . . . ‘  (Hebrews 1:8-9)

And that He specifically redeemed us FROM lawlessness, to walk in righteousness!

‘Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity (ANOMIA), and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.’  (Titus 2:14)

 

Here is a passage that is frequently twisted to justify a Christian being ‘carnal’ (lawless) . . .

‘And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law (ANOMOS), as without law (ANOMOS), (being not without law (ANOMOS) to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law (ANOMOS)’  (1 Cor. 9:20-21)

I am not sure how Paul accomplished that–but he says he was NOT without law towards God, but under the law to Christ. I suspect he meant that he lived by the SPIRIT of the Law, but not the LETTER of the Law, in those cases–which is how Gentile Christians are to walk, even now.  In no way does this justify a Christian living without regard for the SPIRIT of the Law and being lawless (ANOMOS)!

 

Here’s another end-times one, about the Antichrist:

‘And then shall that Wicked (ANOMOS) be revealed , whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:’ (2 Thess. 2:8)

And lastly . . . as many of us can empathize with:

‘And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed [his] righteous soul from day to day with [their] unlawful (ANOMOS) deeds’  (2 Peter 2:7-8)

 

I have cited 13 of 20 verses that use this word.  That’s 65% of the places where it occurs–and they have significant end-times application!  There are many other places where ‘iniquity’ or ‘wickedness’ are spoken of . . . and many where ‘sin’ is talked about.  (And, as 1 John 3:4 tells us, ALL sin is lawlessness (anomia).)  However, I believe there is a very specific reason that the words ‘anomia’ and ‘anomos’ were used in these passages.  I think when we look around us, we can see why.

We are now living in a time that is not only exceedingly sinful, but a hatred for (righteous) law . . . a rebellion against God’s righteous law . . . is becoming pervasive throughout the world.  This hatred for God’s righteous law is so pointed and specific that it requires very precise wording to convey it.  It is not simply transgression of God’s law–it is REBELLION against it.

It should be no surprise to us that our president specifically chose people who did not pay their taxes to fill positions in his administration . . . or that he chooses to surround himself and give power and prestige to those who display a clear hatred for God’s law . . . or that he is ‘framing mischief by a law’ (changing the laws to legalize sin) and penalizing righteousness.  He is a man of LAWLESSNESS.  He operates in the antichrist spirit of ANOMIA.

It isn’t ‘law’ per se that this spirit opposes, because it does indeed seek to bring everyone into bondage through the Law of Sin and Death.  It comes to steal, kill, and destroy–and apparently to tightly control, to compel people to sin and to approve of sin, and to persecute those who won’t.  It is God’s RIGHTEOUS law that this spirit opposes.  It ‘opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped’.

‘And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.’  (Rev. 12:17)

There is no doubt that we are in the midst of a spiritual war.  What are we to do?

‘Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.’  (Rev. 14:12)

We must stand firm in our resolve.  We must uphold the SPIRIT of God’s law, and keep His commandments, through love and obedience.  We must resist the devil.  And we must trust in our Lord, that the day of judgment IS coming, when He will reward the righteous and destroy the lawless.

‘Who will rise up for me against the transgressors? or who will stand up with me against the workers of iniquity (ANOMIA)? If the Lord had not helped me, my soul had almost sojourned in Hades.  If I said, My foot has been moved; thy mercy, O Lord, helped me. O Lord, according to the multitude of my griefs within my heart, thy consolation have soothed my soul.

Shall the throne of iniquity (ANOMIA) have fellowship with thee, which frames mischief by an ordinance? They will hunt for the soul of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood. But the Lord was my refuge; and my God the helper of my hope. And he will recompense to them their iniquity (ANOMIA) and their wickedness: the Lord our God shall utterly destroy them.’  (Psalm 94:16-23, Greek Septuagint)

 

‘Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; who make darkness light, and light darkness; who make bitter sweet, and sweet bitter. Woe to them that are wise in their own conceit, and knowing in their own sight.  Woe to the strong ones of you that drink wine, and the mighty ones that mingle strong drink:  who justify the ungodly for rewards, and take away the righteousness of the righteous.

Therefore as stubble shall be burnt by a coal of fire, and shall be consumed by a violent flame, their root shall be as chaff, and their flower shall go up as dust: for they rejected the law of the Lord of hosts, and insulted the word of the Holy One of Israel.’  (Isaiah 5:20-24, Greek Septuagint)

 

(For those of you who have not read my other posts, I am NOT involved with the Hebrew Roots movement, and I do NOT believe we are supposed to follow ‘Torah’ (go back under The Law).  I believe we are to follow the Ten Commandments, as OBEDIENCE to God, and EVIDENCE of our commitment to HIm–but NOT for JUSTIFICATION.  We are to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, who will lead us to follow the SPIRIT of the Law, rather than the LETTER of the Law.)

It was brought to my attention, that some people who believe in the preTribulation Rapture believe that the ‘falling away’ is really a ‘catching away’.  Apparently they have a different interpretation of this verse:

‘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;’  (2 Thessalonians 2:3)

(A simple check on the meaning of this term would show that the Greek word is ‘apostasia’.  This means: a falling away, defection, or apostasy.  Even the corrupt Bible versions got this one right, translating it as rebellion, apostasy, or falling away.)

Nevertheless, for those who fail to do their own Bible reading and/or fact checking . . . do you realize what that implies? It implies that anyone who believes this, as long as they are alive, can not believe that anyone who rises to power is actually The Antichrist (because they believe they’ll be Raptured before that happens, right?).

So, what’s going to happen when someone

‘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 Thessalonians 2:4)

We know that God is going to send a strong delusion to those who don’t love the truth (2 Thess. 2:11) . . . and we know that ‘Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.’ (2 Cor. 11:14)  (Also, I have reason to believe that The Tribulation may not be seven years, and will not begin with a seven year peace treaty.) . . .

The churches are already moving to unite with one another, with Catholicism, with Islam, with Eastern occult religions such as yoga, etc. Many have been ‘prophesying’ of a ‘great awakening‘ or a ‘great end-times revival‘ (which isn’t Scriptural!) . . .

We know that The Antichrist’s coming ‘is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders‘ (2 Thess. 2:9) that ‘his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness‘ (2 Cor. 11:15), that ‘there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect (Matthew 24:24). . .

Besides the typical (false) healing ministries by such false apostles as Benny Hinn, we have abominations like the Todd Bentley fiasco, and churches where angels, ‘gold dust’, jewels, and oil are supposedly appearing. People are having dreams, believing that Jesus is appearing to them–but with prayer for discernment, and comparison to God’s Word, these prove to be false. . .

If they ALREADY can’t discern that these things are not of God . . . that they fulfill Jesus’ warnings of end-times deception . . . then just who are they going to suppose that fellow sitting in God’s temple is? (And what new, deceptive teachings or ‘discoveries’ might further prepare the way for him?)

 

I may be wrong, but when I look at how many people missed the coming of the Messiah (only two were waiting and watching, and recognized Him after He was born) . . . and how the prophecies about Him were fulfilled in ways they did not expect . . . I suspect that The Antichrist could be among us for quite awhile, with very few people recognizing who he is. It MAY even be that we won’t know, unless God reveals it to us.

 

One other thing that we shouldn’t overlook, is that Satan has to have some plan for quieting, confusing, or explaining away the Scriptures that would allow people to recognize Him. As fast as things are unfolding, it does appear that Bibles may still be obtainable when he comes. Even if they weren’t, enough people remember certain things to be able to identify him at some point.

Certainly marginalizing or getting rid of believers would solve some of that problem–but he wants to appear to be a ‘good guy’, so he’d need to appear to have clean hands in the matter. And, even if he were rid of all Christians, there are bound to be some people who are currently ‘on the fence’ that would remember things they’ve been told, who could ‘out’ him then.

It seems to me that the MOST effective strategy would be to paint a completely different picture–of him, and of how things will happen–so that people will be unaware as it happens right under their noses.

And indeed, I strongly suspect this is already happening–with the help of the false picture that is being presented in the churches of a preTribulation Rapture, and a great end-times revival accompanied by signs and wonders.

READ YOUR BIBLE and PRAY that God will help you understand it and show you the truth, lest you also be deceived!!

There was a time, in America, when most people were well aware of God, and gave Him the respect He deserved.

 

‘Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse’  (Romans 1:19-20)

 

Yet, there were men among them

 

‘ . . . that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.’  (Romans 1:21)

 

Rather than thank God for His bounty and blessings, they sought to accumulate wealth and power for themselves.  In their cleverness, and with the help of fallen angels, they devised many captivating inventions.  They used these inventions to draw others away from God, and into their ways of thinking.

 

‘Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,’  (Romans 1:22)

 

Before long the people, and their children, withdrew from the beauty of God’s creation and began spending more and more of their time indoors, partaking of a world of fantasy and vain imaginations.

 

‘And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.’  (Romans 1:23-25)

 

Having grown up in this world of fantasy, it became the reality of those who were trained by it.

 

‘And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness;

full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity;

whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:’  (Romans 1:28-31)

 

‘ . . . God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.’  (Romans 1:26-27)

 

Eventually, even those who claimed to walk in His ways

 

‘Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only [did] the same, but [had] pleasure in them that [did] them.’  (Romans 1:32)

 

Their judgment was not far off, for God judges nations . . . once they have known Him . . . by whether they continue to walk with Him, or whether they turn aside from His ways.  As He warned long ago . . .

 

‘ . . . it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God . . . that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

Cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the field.   Cursed [shall be] thy basket and thy store.  Cursed [shall be] the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.  Cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out.

The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.

The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.  And thy heaven that [is] over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee [shall be] iron.  The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed. The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.  And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray [them] away.

The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.  The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:  And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save [thee].

Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. Thine ox [shall be] slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass [shall be] violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep [shall be] given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue [them].  Thy sons and thy daughters [shall be] given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail [with longing] for them all the day long: and [there shall be] no might in thine hand.

The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:  So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.  The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.  The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.  And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.

Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather [but] little in; for the locust shall consume it.  Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress [them], but shalt neither drink [of] the wine, nor gather [the grapes]; for the worms shall eat them.  Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint [thyself] with the oil; for thine olive shall cast [his fruit].  Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.  All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.  The stranger that [is] within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.  He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:  And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.  Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all [things]; Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all [things]: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, [as swift] as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;  A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young: And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which [also] shall not leave thee [either] corn, wine, or oil, [or] the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.   And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:  [So that] the man [that is] tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:  So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates. The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter, And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all [things] secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.

If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD; Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, [even] great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.  Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.  Also every sickness, and every plague, which [is] not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.  And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God.

And it shall come to pass, [that] as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.  And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, [even] wood and stone. And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:  And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:  In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.  And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy [you].’  (Deuteronomy 28:15-68)

 

Many would argue that this only applies to the children of Israel, that we are Gentiles who are not under The Law.  Are you sure about that?  There are scholars who have traced the movements of people over time, who have studied the prophetic blessings in Scripture . . . who can demonstrate that the people of the ‘Western World’ are primarily the descendants of the ‘lost’ tribes of Israel, who were long ago taken into captivity for turning away from their God.  History repeats.

It’s amazing how much this guy has figured out about end-times prophecy and current events.  Don’t think America is in end-times prophecy?  Want to know what Freemasonry is all about?  Check out his videos.  Here’s a good one to start with:

Mike Hoggard- Truth behind Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck, Lincoln Memorial — a Temple of AntiChrist 

 

 

Nathan Leal’s latest broadcast  is out–very sobering words about things that have happened in the last week,  and where things are going.

What he is saying lines up 100% with what I am (and have been) hearing from the Lord.  Not to say I have heard all that he has, but there is no disagreement in this broadcast, between his understanding and mine.  And he probably does a better job of getting his point across!!

Here’s something a friend wrote.  I felt it deserved to be posted!

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the news that judgment day is this Saturday. Yes that fateful day of May 21st is this weekend. There are billboards all over the country announcing it. Caravans of people are out spreading the word. And the media has announced it to the world. The pastor says that he has Biblical proof that Saturday is the day. You see, he got his math right this time.

So what does this all mean? (Besides the fact that this pastor is just 6 days away from becoming a false prophet). In fact he’s been a false prophet since 1994.

Now I’m sure that he doesn’t mean to be. And I’m sure that he believes that he’s right. But he missed some key points in his studies, like the entire book of Revelation. He also missed a few key points in Matthew 24, as well as countless other Scriptures that plainly tell us what will happen before the end.

Another point I would like to make is this, as far as my understanding goes, God doesn’t set exact dates for things to happen. There will be “signs of the times”, but no set dates. The Father can tarry as long as He wants, whenever He wants. He is not bound by dates and deadlines. Furthermore, people have been studying the Bible for as long as the Bible has been around. Why hasn’t anyone else come up with that date?

So why is this such a big story? It’s because of what’s going to happen on May 21st…nothing. Then on May 22nd the world can point and laugh at the ‘stupid Christians’.

I think that the media intentionally picked up on this story in order to make endtime warning Christians look like a bunch of idiots. So when the fig tree really IS ripe, people won’t take the warning seriously.

It’s a two sided attack, make Christians look stupid, and don’t take the warnings serious. It’s like a combination of crying wolf and chicken little.”No really! The sky is falling! I mean it this time!”

So many Christians are waiting for ‘the rapture’. They think that it will happen any day now. I see it on just about every endtime prophecy teaching. They always seem to overlook one key word in Matthew 13:30. “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”

I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but it never ceases to amaze me how so many people miss that. Of course a lot of the new versions of the Bible re-word things and leave out entire verses, so I guess that I shouldn’t be too surprised. Not to mention, a lot of Christians rely on their pastor to read and interpret the Bible for them.

(J. Piraneo, 5-17-11)

I am amazed, that people who have been Christians for decades, and who have been watching for the signs of end-times prophetic fulfillment are now totally missing them.  This is tragic . . . watching for decades for signs of The Antichrist, then falling asleep as they begin to happen!

Here is why I think that is happening:  Christians have assumed that the ‘great deception’ will be some elaborate scheme to hide the true motives of The Antichrist and make him look good, rather than evil.  Instead, what I see happening is that we are being deceived to believe that evil is good (and good is evil), so that we will believe an openly evil Antichrist . . . is good.

These days, no one is attempting to hide their anti-Christian behaviors.  (Indeed, many antichrists are among us–too many to hide.)  And the Church has gone right along with the crowd, to the point where it has completely lost its discernment.

‘Christians’ now live like the world and believe like the world. The Church did not take seriously the admonitions to ‘come out and be separate’ and ‘touch no unclean thing’.  Instead, ‘Christians’ rationalized that they were living like the world to reach the world.  In fact, the very opposite happened.  ‘Bad company corrupt[ed] good character’, and all but a remnant of the Church is now immersed in the ‘great deception’.

To complete the great deception, everything has been redefined!

  • ‘God’ has been redefined as Allah, or anyone else you want to pray to
  • ‘Jesus’ has been redefined as a social activist
  • ‘Salvation’ is now the new name for a community experience of utopia
  • ‘Christianity’ now includes all religions, because there are said to be many roads to ‘God’
  • ‘Love’ has been redefined as tolerance

This has deceived people into believing that opposing God is:

  • Saying Allah is not God
  • Believing in private property rather than communism
  • Teaching that salvation is individual, necessary, and obtainable only through Jesus Christ
  • Calling sin for what it is

But the biggest irony of all is that this creeping paradigm shift will put ‘Christians’, who accept these new definitions, in the position of actually persecuting true, Bible-based, Fundamentalist Christians!  When will their eyes be opened?  It is true that ‘there is none so blind as he who will not see’!

It is not the lost whom Satan expends his best efforts on.  A God-denying Jew or a thoroughly deceived ‘Christian’, who does his bidding, is his most coveted trophy!!

To recap–if you are a Christian who has been looking for the signs of The Antichrist:

  • The Antichrist will be apparent to those who do not become deceived by the new definitions of Christianity (in other words Christian Fundamentalists).
  • Those that will be deceived are those who accept the new, modern definition of Christianity.
  • What one considers to be  ‘Anti-christianity’ is what is in opposition to what they believe is Christianity.

So, if you have been persuaded (deceived) into accepting the new definition of Christianity, then your definition of Anti–Christianity will also be wrong.  You will be unable to recognize what truly is Anti-Christianity!

Here are some of the signs/beliefs of real ANTI-Christ/Anti-Christianity :

  • Many roads lead to God
  • Allah, or whoever else you want to pray to, is God
  • Jesus came to teach us a better way to live
  • Salvation is a community experience
  • We will all be saved, together, when we work together to fix what’s wrong with the world
  • All religions are equally valid
  • God is love and doesn’t hate
  • God doesn’t judge
  • We must not apply labels such as sin, but we must be tolerant
  • We each have our own truth
  • God is within each of us
  • We must strive to reach our full potential

Please don’t walk away from this post until you really understand what I’m saying.  You have heard the warnings about not being deceived, and about the great deception that was coming . . . what I am trying to open your eyes to is a GREAT DECEPTION that is happening, right here, right now!  Don’t let it suck you in!

If you doubt the warnings that you’ve been hearing, in regards to economic collapse in America, etc.–PLEASE listen to one last broadcast before you make up your mind:

Friday 1-14-11 broadcast

God warns His people–but when their hearts are hardened, they won’t heed His warnings.

‘When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages,and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”’ Rev 6: 5-6

You will have to judge for yourself if this warning is true.  I believe it is.  PLEASE, for the sake of your families, listen and pray about it.

 

‘Gold, a safe investment’–are you sure about that?
