A Day That Will ULTIMATELY 'live in Infamy' May 14, 1948


             Seventy years ago today the state of Israel was recognized officially as a nation state among the nations of the world. By the OFFICIAL RECOGNITION by the United Nations and with the endorsement of President Truman who received a Ttwo million dollar bribe for his enthusiastic endorsement of the decision. In more recent time President Trump has designated Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. That designation has been recognized by many nations but notably many of the Moslem and Arab states stand in resistance. The Palestinian protests and demonstrations have been attended by literally thousands and the deaths of dozens have already been recorded besides hundreds more injured. These demonstrations are likely to continue in coming days, but this is of little consequence to the Zionist agenda promoting the birth an ultimate expansion of the state of Israel to a place of regional dominance and there clearly exits a long term agenda for their geographic expansion.
            The plan is called the Yinon Plan and was drafted in 1982 by Odid Yinon and was subsequently formalized in the document written by Israel Shahak entitled The Zionist Plan for the Middle East. Its premise in drafting and execution contains two fundamental objectives.  First, in order to survive Israel must become an Imperial power, and secondly, Israel must effect the division of the whole region into small states by the dissolution of existing Arab states. This process has been going on in the Middle East since the plan was formally put into the execution phase. Witness the several wars in the region initiated by Israel (1967, 1973, 1982 not to mention the several attacks on Gaza). These military actions have been followed up by the aggression of the United States in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria and now Iran has been placed in the crosshairs of American foreign policy. Further wars are then inevitable as Israel has an agenda for recovery of the entire territory described in Scripture as the Promised Land. It includes Lebanon, most of Syria about two thirds of Iraq, Egypt up to the Nile river, Jordan, and upper Saudi Arabia. In biblical terms this  “from the brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.”(See Genises 15:18 and I Kings 4:21).
            Now it is of significant consequence that the Christian community and evangelical Christians in particular lie in a state of deep deception concerning an  ability to understand exactly what is in progress in the region. There conviction relies on the distortions and heresies of Scofield theology, i.e. the Jews are God’s ‘chosen people’ and the reestablishment and actions of Israel are divinely ordained. In fact there existence validates a miraculous work of God to bring the Jews back into a place of prominence and dominion in the last days. While it is true that the end of days is upon us as evidenced by all of this military and political activity transpiring in the Middle East; the fact is that the scriptures clearly refute both of the foregoing assumptions when rightly understood. This entire agenda is a complete deception being perpetrated by the god of this world and it has its strongest effect on the people who claim to endorse unwaveringly the content of the Bible. There misguided conclusions are exactly opposite from the truths of the prophetic scriptures.
            The prophet Daniel provides us with much significant information leading us to the truths surrounding end time prophecy. “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all of the beasts that were before if: and it had ten horns. (a world government as described at Revelation 13:1-2). I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another little horn,(Israel) before whom three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man (Antichrist) and a mouth speaking read things.” (Daniel 7:7-8).And again: “And his power shall be mghty but not by own power: (his power is Satanic) and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and destroy the mighty and holy people. And through his policy also shall he cause craft (deceit) to prosper in his hand: and he shall magnify himself in his heart and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes: but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:24-25).
                 Moving to Daniel chapter eleven let us examine the end of the matter.” “And the king shall do according to his will; and 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 shall be accomplished: that that is detrmined shall be done, Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers (i.e.-he is a Jew), nor the desire of women, or regard any  god for he shall magnify himself above all.” (Daniel 11:36-37).
            He shall enter into the glorious land (Israel),  and many countries shall be overthrown, but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and  Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.” (Daniel 11:41) “And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas (the Mediterranean and Dead seas) in the glorious holy mountain (Zion) yet shall he come to his end, and none shall help him.” (Daniel 11:45). This consummates the Zionist plan for a “Greater Israel”.  The sad commentary is that the vast majority if Christians will believe that this is the return of Christ to set up his kingdom on the earth.  My prayer is that some would escape their indoctrination of Scofield’s popular theology which is a series of lies  and  deceptions. I recommend my book The Israel Deception to gain a fuller understanding of the devils deceptions concerning the modern day nation of Israel.

Perpetual Warfare


          Once again we see more sabre rattling pursuant to more warfare in the Middle East. A contrived false flag event most likely by the CIA or Israel’s Mossed or both to justify a missile attack by America on Syria. How ludicrous and obvious is this charade?  Bashar Al Asad is elearly wining his war against  the rebels (sponsored by the UJS)and insurgents seeking to overthrow this regime. So it would be insane on his part to initiate a attack on his own people. Ameica’s ‘humanitarian’ response to teach him a lesson concerning attacks on innocent women and children is the presumed logical act  to respond with an attack on innocents including women and children. The reality is that Assad is the respected leader of his country while  warmongering America has no respected leadership because it is held captive  by an international  cabal of elitist Zionists promoting  an agenda for the emergence of a ‘Greater Israel’ at the center of a new  world order.
            Moving ahead a sort period of time we now have President   Trump renouncing the canceling of  the nuclear deal with Iran. Most certainly this is a precursor for military involvement with Iran—a stanch  enemy of Israel. When that scenario comes into full focus the stage is being set for a full scale international war which will undoubtedly involve Russia and maybe even China?  Is this total insanity or what?  This conflict with Iran could very likely be initiated by Israel but if that is the case they will have the full support of America and its military power. We have yet to see how it will play out,but there are certain key elements which are supported by the scriptures when you have spent the time to study what the end time prophesies of Daniel portray.  And those prophesies are supported by tshe Lord Jesus Christ himself and are further detailed in the Book of Revelation by  the Apostle  John,  if and when you are able to accurately interpret it. I believe that I have dome that through decades of study and would recommend that you obtain a copy for as little as $14.95 on Amazon. The title is These Prophets and the Revelation.
            While trying to avoid the massive details of this Zionist agenda let me just summarize a few points that are completely supported by prophetic portions of the Scripture. First we would understand by the recorded prophesies of Jesus that there will be a series of wars and rumors of war. This clearly set forth in Matthew chapter twenty-four. And the chronology suggests that these are preparatory in their consequences. The result of the first world war was a resolution by the government of Great Britain to award a parcel of land to Israel in the area of Palestine. It is called the Balfour Resolution and it was passed by the British Parliament in November of 1917. This laid the groundwork in so far as Israel is concerned for the consequences of the Second World War. A  Major consequence of that worldwide catastrophe was the migration of Jews to Palestine resulting eventually in the declaration of that region in Palestine as a Jewish state and the birth of Israel in 1948. Principal  to this exodus to Israel was the alleged holocaust which has some questionable ramifications.  But not to say that it was not uite as it was represented to be does not square with conventional wisdom. A great deal of propaganda was utilized to support the premise that it was disastrous to Jewry. By the way the Jews involved were mostly European Jews or Ashkenazim and not legitimate Jews as in  Sephardic as the true descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This plays a major part in the charade because these Jews in the main are not Jews at all but imposters hiding behind the adoption of Judaism based on the Babylonian Talmud  or in many cases just secular Jews from many parts of the world.
            These preparatory wars and evnts lead us up to more recent times and more recevt  Middle East wars initiated from the false flag event of the 911 Trade Center attacks allegedly carried out by radical Islam. That turned out to be a  convenient cover as the real perpetrators were the CIA and the Israel Massed. Again it is all about Israel. These wars included an invasion of Afghanistan and an invasion of Iraq based on the false fla g of 911 and initiated the ‘war on terrorism’ which is ongoing. Of course Syria and Iran remain as targets of Zionism and Israel for their intent to recover total control over the region for the purpose of initiating a world ruler and a world government under the auspices of Antichrist and a New World Order. End time prophetic events are being fulfilled and the general attitude of the Christian community is that America is performing a wonderful blessing for the state of Israel (for surely you know that they are God’s  'chosen people'--please forgive my sarcasim) in their attacks on the several Moslem counties in the Middle East. The entire Middle East must be destabilized for the enemy to finally execute his agenda even if requires a Third World War killing multiplied millions  But America and particularly Christians stand in support of any thing and everthing done in favor  of   or support for Israel.

The Weopons of Our Warfare


            Mostly obscure to the vast majority of those who would claim to be Christian there is a raging spiritual war progressing and it is  ever escalating. For the most part the church, at least in America is in a state of passive apostasy. This may not be the case in other places such as the Middle East where Christian’s have undergone brutal persecution and martyrdom on a vast scale.  But in America the attitude is generally that the American wars of aggression against Moslem states is a good thing because they see them as the enemies of Israel.  The mindset is that this counterfeit nation of Isreal represents God’s ‘chosen people’ and they are destined to prevail and be blessed even unto a millennial rein over the entire earth. This issue alone makes them oblivious to the real agenda of the enemy as relates to Israel and its eventual emergence in influence and power all of which is an orchestration of Lucifer’s plan for a New World Order to be dominated by the Antichrist.  Yes, there is an active and ongoing agaenda for a "Greater Israel".  But this deception is so widespread among evangelicals and other Christians that it brings them to blindly endorse the death and destruction as an omen of biblical prophecy in the process of fulfillment. It is in fact a central element of the ongoing spiritual war but alas  it is progressing to an end which is entirely opposite of their misguided perceptions. This apostasy leads to a deception which nullifies their involvement in any effective resistance to the enemy’s agenda.
            Contributing to the delusion are false theological conclusions held widely among Christians including the Calvinist precepts of ‘unconditional election’, ‘irresistible grace’ and ‘perseverance of the saints’. These concepts are unsupported by the truths of Scripture and they inevitably lead individuals into a state of passivity and blindness neutralizing and nullifying their effectiveness in the spiritual conflict. After all if the Jewish nation is predestined to rule over the world for a millennia as the ‘chosen people’ then America must be a righteous nation in their support of Israel and certainly these Zionist Christians are justified in supporting the ongoing wars of aggression in the Middle East. Unfortunately a true understanding of the teaching of Scripture supports the reality that Israel of old due to their breach of covenant and insistence on the crucifixion of Christ resulted in the abrogation of that covenant and judgement at the hand of a righteous God. The reasoning is that if Israel as an ethnic, political, and religious entity is to prevail on the earth then the church must necessarily be ‘raptured’ in order for God to return  to his dealings with them to marvelously bring to them collective salvation. This preposterous outcome is guaranteed in their minds and places them in the enemy’s camp in support of lies that are totally contradicted by the scriptures. They in effect have taken up the cause of the evil one in support of this false icon, i.e. the nation state of Israel.
            These conditions that exist in modern day Christendom in America deny the reality of the ongoing warfare that they are effectively and willingly ignorant of. “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (II Cor. 10:4-5) The foregoing doctrines and theological concepts certainly represent strongholds against the truth of the Word of God. The craft and deceit of the enemy is to utilize these lies and deceptions to capture the hearts and minds of people and to place them in denial concerning the accurate proclamations of Scripture.
       The minds of people become a stronghold which must be spiritually renewed or 
we remain a captive of our deceptions.(See Rom. 12:1-2).    Our natural thought
processes of reasoning reinforce our deception and block the truth from being able to
be comprehended. Thus, we are admonished to:
            Put on the whole amour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand in the evil day, and hving done all to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness: and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace: and above all taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all of the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God.”(Eph. 6:10-13-17).

          Until you have embraced sound doctrine you will inevitably project it forward
into complete distortions in the interpretation of the prophetic scriptures.
         I Recommend all three of my books for accurate interpretations both in doctrine
and prophecy.  These Prophets and the Revelation,  The Israel Deception, and
Christian Zionism and the Scofield reference Bible.

Middle East War Agenda: A "Greater Israel"


             For more than a quarter of a century we have been witnessing perpetual warfare in the Middle East. These wars have always involved the United States either directly or indirectly. They have resulted in the death of millions including thousands of American military people not to mention the further multiplied thousands who have returned disabled missing arms, legs, etc. Does the average American Christian have an explanation for the cause and effect of this massive death and  destruction? Is it believed that this costly death and dismemberment serves some purpose in the national security interest of the United States? Does Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan pose any kind of a military threat to America? It has been designated as the ‘war on terrorism’, but who in fact are the terrorists ,and  reasonably why would we expect anything but terror in response against us if not having been provoked by aggression. Can there be found a reasonable justification for all of these wars of aggressions against foreign sovereign nations?
            I have not posted a blog for more than two weeks and if you follow my posts you know that the last several posts have covered the revelations of Daniel the Old Testament prophet. Daniel tells us a significant part of the story concerning the answers to all of the above posed questions. He takes us prophetically through history and the significant kingdoms which have ruled in the Middle East and then focuses on one final kingdom which is to emerge at the end of days. I have been pondering Daniel’s prophetic words in light of the current developments in the region we know as the Middle East. The reader might consider pondering those writings once again as they are so significant for the days and times that we live in presently and those that lie immediately ahead. There is a chronology of eschatological events brought forward in the last two chapters of Daniel. These writings take us up to and through the very end of days as determined. They include the abomination of desolation, the emerging of the Antichrist, the martyrdom and persecution of the saints, the great tribulation, and his conquest of this very region at the end of chapter eleven. Most of the people who profess the Christian faith fail to really grasp not only the nearness but the significance of all of these events.
            America’s Christians are mostly oblivious to the effects of these cataclysmic events for they live in the delusion that when the end comes they will be marvelously raptured away from any danger or harm regardless of their spiritualcondition. Also, a very large number of them believe that the nation state of Israel has a great and wonderful future with the prospect of national salvation and a kingdom reign that will last for a thousand years. Unfortunately these hopes are mere delusions fabricated from a false paradigm of theology which is not supported in Scripture.
            So looking at recent headline news we learn that there was a poison gas attack in Syria  alleged to be perpetrated by its leader Bashar Al Assad. He was alleged to be responsible for the release of chlorine gas killing many of his own citizens and injuring hundreds more.  This defies common sense for more than one reason. First, he has been winning the civil war in Syria and it would be foolish to instigate such an event because of the known reactions of the world at large including America.  Next, contrary to the propaganda media Assad is neither a tyrant nor a terrorist. He is generally loved by the people of Syria and is very kindly disposed towards Christians of whom there are many in Syria. So this event was a ‘false flag’ perpetrated by others seeking to put the blame on Assad and hold him accountable. When you really understand what the issues are you could likely name the CIA, the Jewish Mossad, or other terrorists or rebels in the area. That cannot be determined because it will be covered up, but it was not Assad or his government. Many people and sources with more direct information than me have confirmed the same.
            The American response given by the President was to launch over one hundred missiles into Syria to punish them for war crimes likely instigated by other controlled people or entities.  This act of aggression provides an alleged justification for the action taken, but falls short of reason when you really understand the position of the American government in relation to Israel. And  also when you understand that all of these Middle East conflicts, wars, etc. are all about Israel. The uninformed public and specifically evangelical Christians are completely deceived concerning the agenda for a counterfeit Israel as we move progressively forward to end time biblical prophecy. The propaganda and deceptions perpetrated by the controlled media and the very powerful Zionist agenda escapes the understanding and perceptions of almost everyone. The emergence of the nation state of Israel is a work in progress and will ultimately be established as  a world imperial power perpetrated by the enemy of all mankind-Lucifer. He seeks to be worshipped as the god of this world and he has used the lies and deceptions concerning the Jews as being the so-called ‘chosen people’ to effectively capture America, its presidents and politicians, its economic system, its educational system, the media and to some extent the internet to foist a vast deception on America and its people. Christian Zionism rules in the evangelical world and they believe wholeheartedly that all of America’s support and promotion of Israel is a biblical mandate. When in fact the American government is totally controlled by the Zionist agenda for a New World Order ruled from a much “Greater Israel”.  You can find all of the details of how this has transpired over time as well as the counterfeit Jews who are responsible for the ultimate outcome in my book The Israel Deception. Reviewing my eight recent blogs on Daniel’s prophesies will also be very helpful. Jesus warned us ‘Be not deceived.’!!

Daniel's Prophesies Destroy Dispensationalism


                 For the past several weeks I have been occupied with a study in the Book of Daniel. It has consisted thus far with eight postings during the months of February and March. To review the February postings all that is needed is to visit theseprophets.blogspot.com and click on February and the March postings are in the forefront. My purpose in all my writings is to bring wisdom and spiritual understanding to the reader and to dispel any doctrinal ground the enemy has in the minds of people that are not true and cannot be supported by the testimony of Scripture. Sound biblical doctrine will lead us upon the path that has been set before us to grow in grace and knowledge and be among those who overcome. Accurate understanding of prophecy leads us towards the sound doctrines taught us throughout the entirety of the Bible.  The significant teaching of Daniel will have the effect of destroying heresies and distortions being propagated through false religious systems and particularly important is the exposure of dispensational theology for it has captured multiplied millions of those who would profess Christ. In this posting I am seeking to review several of those heretical teachings which have had the effect of deceiving the multitudes I have referred to. To the extent that they are not exposed, revealed and understood they constitute a strong hold in the mind and lead to one’s spiritual decline and/or  even destruction.
                My perception is that one of the principle roots of dispensational teaching lies in corrupting the interpretation of Daniel’s “seventy weeks”.  My purpose here is not to undertake a complete exegesis of the passage for you can do so by clicking on February at my blogsite and then clicking on Daniel’s Seventy Weeks for a complete interpretation of the passage. My focus here is to state unequivocally that those “seventy weeks” (four hundred and ninety years) were continuous and brought an end to God’s dealing with Old Testament Israel under the tenets of the law. Because they were entirely fulfilled in the first advent of Christ and his ministry to Israel of old and thus they have absolutely no application to ethnic Jewry or anyone else for that matter at the end of the age as they dogmatically insist. There is no returning to the old covenant people to reestablish them as central to an earthly millennial kingdom. The errors of interpretation of this passage lead to complete confusion of the scriptures and result in a  falsely constructed paradigm which completely precludes any possibility of rightly interpreting the  prophetical truths of either Daniel or Revelation.
                By artificially projecting Daniel’s seventieth week to the end of the age there is  a false attempt to restore national Israel not only for an additional seven years which  they assert to be the duration of the tribulation;   but for the entirety  of a falsely conceived  earthly kingdom lasting  for a thousand years. While Daniel’s prophesies do not extend to the age to came they make it very clear that there is no pretribulational ‘rapture’ of the church.  Rather it is clear from the verses beginning at Daniel 11:30 that the saints who have not been caught up with the man child will endure those days of extreme trouble including intense persecution and martyrdom. Their doctrine forces them to a pretribulational rapture of the entire church so that God can return to dealing with his “chosen people” for seven years to establish the centrality of Israel for a millennial reign with Christ sitting on the throne in Jerusalem. When, in fact, Daniel in chapter eleven, following the narrative of the last sixteen verses clearly establishes that it will be the Antichrist who will set up his throne in Jerusalem.  Read the text leading up to verse forty -five where that is explicitly proclaimed by Daniel.
                Persecution and martyrdom of the saints play a central role in Daniels’s accounts of the fourth   beast to rule over the earth and the emergence of the “little horn” (Greater Israel). References to this fact include Daniel 8:9-10 where we read: “And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south and towards the east and towards the pleasant lend.”  This is the emergence of “Greater Israel” even now in the planned agenda which has already been proclaimed by its Zionist supporters. “And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven and cast down the host and of the stars (the stars represent metaphorically the people of God as can be established by several other scriptures) to the ground, and stomped upon them.”(Daniel 8:10).  Cross reference this to Revelation 11:1-2).  Then read Daniel 11:33; “And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword,, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil many days.”  “And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river (Christ Jesus established from chapter ten)  when he held up his right hand and his left hand into heaven, and swore by him that liveth forever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half (three and one-half years) and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.”(Daniel 12:7). Again this is the period of the tribulation which is three and one-half years and not seven as asserted by dispensationalist we see the saints being trodden down by the enemy and the unbelieving. Instead of being raptured away into heaven before the tribulation as they proclaim.  We find that in fact the vast majority of the church will not only be subjected to the tribulation but they will be the principle object of persecutions and martyrdom being executed by the wicked people in league with the son of perdition.
                Something must be said as concerning the abomination of desolation. It has nothing to do with what the proponents of this theology proclaim. It I not an animal sacrifice offered on the altar of the temple by Antiochus Epiphanies at some time in antiquity. Rather it occurs precisely thirty days prior to the onset of tribulation (See Daniel 12:11). I will not elaborate on the topic here because I have covered it thoroughly in a previous blog. But I must say dogmatically that his nothing to do with animal sacrifice; but it is a spiritual phenomenon first spoken of at Daniel 11:30 and encompasses a spiritual exercise of power and dominion which is orchestrated to capture and destroy people spiritually and its author is Lucifer himself.(See II Thes. 2:1-10).
                   I want to speak to the necessary cleansing of the sanctuary as a prerequisite to any person’s entrance into the kingdom of God. This concept is untaught in circles where dispensational theology and Calvinism prevail. That results in many false conclusions In their interpretations. Certainly it results in the doctrine of a pretribulational ‘rapture’ of the church for they have concluded that every believer will be a participant in that (non-event) regardless of their spiritual condition beyond an actual spiritual rebirth. This is the Calvinist doctrine of ‘eternal security’ which is embraced by dispensationalists. It is blatantly false and is proved by Daniel without even examining the New Testament teaching on the issue.   Consider the following: “How long shall be concerning the daily sacrifice (no word in the original for sacrifice), and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.” (Daniel 8:13-14).  The period runs from before the tribulation (31/2 years) and all the way to the end of the age for the issue is cleansing of the sanctuary which is the work of the Holy Spirit in the heart of the believer. No one will enter into the eternal kingdom apart from the necessary purification of the heart. This is the purpose of trial, tribulation and affliction in the individual life to make sure the vessel for the complete control of the Spirit. Thus, a pretribulational ‘rapture’ of all of the church is impossible apart from the cleansing of the inner life of believers, which negates both dispensational doctrine and also Calvinistic doctrine. This truth is emphasized again in the text of chapter eleven at verses thirty–one and thirty-two. “And such a do wickedly against the covenant shall he (antichrist) corrupt by flatteries (deception): but the people who do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.” The entire purpose of the tribulation is to bring extreme difficulties, trials, and even martyrdom upon people to effect a purification of the heart. “And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end; because it is yet for a time appointed,” (Dan 11:35). Dear Christian your ‘born again’ experience will not provide you entrance into the kingdom of God.  Much more is required. “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God who worketh in you both to will and to do his good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:12 -13).(emphasis mine).

An Addendum to Daniel's Prophesies: The Woman and the Man Child

                  The subject of this writing has the purpose of bringing a new understanding
to a portion of scripture which has been misinterpreted and completely corrupted. My reference is to the twelfth chapter of the Book of Revelation.  This falls within the context of the end time prophecies of Daniel although it is not contained in that context. The foundations had to be laid for the purpose of proving that there is no pretribulational rapture of the church as is held by those who endorse dispensational theology. The text of I Thessalonians 4:13-17 has been explained to be the description of that resurrection event after the tribulation when compared with other scripture, (Matt. 24:29-31 and Rev.11:11-12) and not a description of the so-called rapture. This leads us to our current topic. Also, it is important to understand that the tribulation is three and one-half years in duration and not seven as is commonly believed. But it is of extreme importance to understand that there will be a catching up of a remnant of God’s very faithful people just prior to the tribulation period as the remainder will be subject to the tribulation with the object of purifying their hearts through trouble, persecution and even martyrdom. Chapters eleven (first 12 verses and chapter twelve of Revelation covers that reality in detail.(See also Rev.3:10-11).
            The text in chapter twelve of Revelation describes a great wonder seen in heaven consisting of a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars. (See Rev.12:1). This of course is a metaphor which needs to be understood. Where then does the metaphor come from and how do we interpret it? The metaphor is drawn from Joseph’s dream recited from Genesis 37:9-10. From that text we can discern that the sun, moon and stars represent the whole household of God as they existed at that time and is represented by the family of Jacob (Israel). So by application of the Revelation text we can see that the woman along with her offspring represent metaphorically all of God’s people, then living on the earth i.e. the church. “And she being with child cried travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”(Verse 2). “And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. Then the text reveals to us the dragon (Satan) through his instrumentality of the beast having seven heads and ten horns. This entity is more thoroughly described in Revelation 13:1-2 and we glean from other scriptures detailed in Daniel 7:7 & f that this beast in both texts is one and the same and represents the final worldwide kingdom under the control of Satan at the end of the age. In modern vernacular that is the “New World Order” which will prevail universally at the end of this age. Then we see in verse four that as the woman who is in travail and ready to give birth; the dragon seeks to devour her offspring as soon as it is born.  But in verse five we see “her child is caught up to God, and to his throne.” We now need to know how to interpret the text up to this point.
            The woman who is clothed in the metaphor is the entire church living on the earth at the end of the age.  She is in the travail of birth for within her resides a people who have been perfected and purified by the workings of the Holy Spirit in them. Through their faithful responses to Christ he has been thoroughly formed in their hearts. We do not know their number. We only know that Christ has been formed in them through their enduring faith.  Thus, this remnant out from the church as a whole is “caught up (to snatch or seize violently, to take away by force-Strong’s Concor.) to God and to the throne.” Remember Enoch and Elijah? The preparatory text for understanding this phenomenon is found at Rev. 11:1-2 in the measuring of the temple (the house of God, i.e. the church) finding those who are worshiping  in truth therein in contrast to the court without  which is given unto the Gentiles to be trodden under foot forty and two months. This divides the people of God into two spiritual conditions and prepares our understanding as to why a remnant (the man child) is caught to the throne. Then we see in verse seven that the woman (the church) ‘fled into the wilderness’ finding a place which God has provided to sustain her for a thousand two hundred and three score days (the period of the duration of the tribulation).
              This catching up of the man child precipitates warfare in the heavenly realm.
The Lord has procured the spiritual ground through the man child to evict Satan from any access to the heavenly realm which he has retained continuously since the fall of man. “… the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was there place found any more in heaven…..he was cast out of heaven, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Portions of verses 7, 8, and 9). “And I heard a loud voice. Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame hum by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony: and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Rev. 12:10-11).
            We then see the devil as cast down to the earth having great wrath for he knows he has but a short time. “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed (the church remaining on the earth during the tribulation), which keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”(Rev.12:17).
            The purpose of this series of blogs is again to clarify and explain the extreme confusion in the church on the subject of resurrection and end time events in general. And,also, in the case of the ‘man child’ a translation (catching up of living and faithful saints into the heavenly kingdom) prior to the three and one-half year tribulation to establish the spiritual ground to bring in the kingdom.
             It is recognized by the writer that this account of the text in Revelation is very likely entirely new to almost everyone who will read it. Obtain my book These Prophets and the Revelation for an entire exegesis of end time prophecy. It is added to the previous seven blogs to provide a reliable overview of end time prophetic events coveres in the Book of Daniel.

Daniel's Prophesies: Great Tribulation


                Our previous consideration was on the subject of the abomination of desolation which leads almost immediately into the great tribulation. Daniel provides us with a significant commentary on the subject. This prophetic commentary begins at Daniel 11:30 and follows through to the end of chapter twelve. In view immediately in the context of the abomination of desolation is the fact of great deception utilized against those who “do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt by flatteries” Corrupt in the passage means ‘to cause to dissemble’ whereas the word for flatteries in the Hebrew means deception. These two word definitions combine to help us understand what happens to one who succumbs to the abomination of desolation.
                But immediately we see in verse thirty three that those who are not overcome by deception shall come under the wrath of the satanic powers.  “And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil many days. By way of interpretation we see two major issues being brought forth in the verse. First, there is the extreme persecution including martyrdom, plunder, and captivity all of which will continue throughout this three and one-half year period. We also see that the truth will be spread abroad by these persecuted Christians to the ends of the earth.  Jesus confirmed these realities in Matthew twenty four and announced that the gospel of the kingdom was to be preached throughout the world before the end would come. Moving ahead in the passage we find the following in verse thirty-five: “And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even unto the end; because it is yet for a time appointed.”  The tribulation is a time ordained by the Lord for the necessary purification of believers who have not yet come to the spiritual stature required by their Redeemer. These persecutions and potential martyrdoms are spoken of earlier in Daniel at the hands of the fourth beast who hates Christ and anyone who proclaims him as Lord. Consider Revelation 11:7: "And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascended out of the bottomless pit shall make war with them, and shall overcome them, and shall kill them.”  The beast here is that system of the fourth beast of Daniel’s prophesies which represents the final world empire which is to be centered in the nation of Israel as they move to the status of a “Greater Israel.” The persecuted ones are those who were not measured as worshiping in the temple as seen in verses one and two of the text.  The temple or sanctuary of God is the spirit of a man who is abiding in Christ.These are hard things to be  understand and stand in direct opposition to  the concepts taught in today’s modern church where we have been  assured that the church will be  safely “raptured” prior to any difficulties, trials or persecutions connected  with the tribulation period.
                Moving on through the text of chapter eleven we find some descriptive words describing the person of the son of perdition. “And the king (antichrist) 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.”  The indignation spoken of here includes anger, wrath, defiance and a vehement hatred of God and Christ, and his people thus all are employed in opposition to the testimony of truth, but the purpose of the Lord in all of this is the cleansing of the sanctuary or said another way the purification of his people. The Calvinist “security” doctrine is nullified by these realities.
                Speaking further of Antichrist we see the following: Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers (that is to say he is Jewish for the word for God is translated numerous times in the O.T. in reference to the true and living God), nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honor the god of forces;  and a god who his father’s knew not shall he honor with gold and silver, and with precious stones, and precious things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory….(i.e., this is Lucifer or Satan) (verses 38-39).
                In verse forty we observe the ongoing regional conflict represented by the king of the south and the king of the north. “…and he shall come to rule over many (the son of perdition- the king of the north, i.e. Israel) and shall divide the land for gain. At the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind with chariots and horsemen, and many ships; and shall enter into the countries, and overflow and passover. He shall also enter into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.” (Verses 39-43). We are here observing great military conflict and it is to continue.  “But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain (Zion); yet shall he come to his end, and none shall help him.”(verses 44—45).  It must be understood by the reader that these conflicts are regional in the Middle East and the purpose is a complete conquest of all of the territory which encompasses the land of promise given to Old Testament Israel. It includes Lebanon, Jordan, upper Saudi Arabia, most of Syria, the lower half of Iraq, and much of Egypt. These conquests are clearly set forth in the Oded Yinon plan for Imperial or “Greater Israel” drafted and proclaimed in 1982. Those O.T. promises were completely fulfilled.
                Now we must move forward to chapter twelve. “And at that time  shall Michael standup, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation up to that same time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” (Comp. Rev. 20: 13-15). “And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that are wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.” (Daniel 12:1-3). The “time of trouble: encompasses a period of three and one-half years as is verified as confirmed in verse seven. “And I heard the man clothed in linen (this is the man described in detail in chapter ten. It is the Lord Jesus Christ), see chapter 10), which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and left hand into heaven, and swore by him that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; (three and one-half years) and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.” (comp. Rev. 10:5-6).
                “And I heard (Daniel speaking to the Lord) but I understood not: then I said I, O my Lord what shall be the end of these things? “And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are sealed till the time of the end, Many shall be purified; but the wicked shall do wickedly and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.”(Verses 8-10).
                This concludes the prophesies of Daniel taking us to the very end of the age and the time of the resurrection of the saints after the tribulation. However, there remains an important event and concept that is not covered by Daniel and so we must go forward to the Book of Revelation and chapter twelve. So one more blog posting is necessary to cover that prophetic ground.
                What becomes so obvious as you study and understand the prophetic ministry of Daniel is that it absolutely destroys the popular theology of the day, i.e. dispensationalism which has captured and deceived the modern day evangelical church!!  It dispels the erroneous pretribulational ‘rapture’ of the entire church as well as the teaching of a seven year tribulation. But the critical and most important lie that it exposes is that the notion that the nation state of Israel stands in the favor of the Lord and it is to be restored as a principle part of God’s plan when it fact the very opposite is true as it will be revealed to be the icon of the enemy to deceive the world and if it were possible even the very elect. If you are interested in knowing all of the details of this deception perpetrated by the counterfeit Jews who have hijacked Orthodox Judaism, adopted the occult Babylonian Talmud as their guide book and have managed to put in place a counterfeit nation of Israel I would highly recommend that you order my book from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. It is entitled The Israel Deception. If you have missed any of my previous postings in this series you may find five of them posted in February. All you need to do is go to theseprophets.blogspot.com and click on the month of February.
