As a follow up to my last post, I thought I’d take a minute to talk about a subject I had skirted around at that time… the Gay Agenda.
First, I’d like to promote a book I have, which is politically incorrect, accurate, and eye opening: The Pink Swastika, by Scott Lively, and Kevin Abrams. It can be read online, and I do recommend that you read it.
Before reading The Pink Swastika, I had already found some of the facts regarding the link between Nazism and homosexuality on my own, but this book put it all together. Not only this but every controversial statement in The Pink Swastika is backed up with numerous sources. This book is factually accurate, regardless of what the Gay lobbyists say about it.
One of the facts that has caused much confusion, is the dichotomy between the two groups often lumped under the one “gay” umbrella, the “Femmes” and the “Butches”.
There is a definite difference between these two groups, and it goes back a long way. We can see them even in the bible, in passages like 1 Corinthians 6:9 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,“
Notice that these two groups are mentioned here as either “effeminate” or “abusers of themselves with mankind”. While God is angry with both lifestyles, there is a real difference between them.
Lively and Abrams examine an attack against a homosexual research organization, Magnus Hirschffeld’s Sex Research Institute on May 6th, 1933, by the Nazis. This attack is often used to “prove” that the Nazis were anti-gay. The truth is that gays are often hyper-masculine, and hyper-aggressive, and they have little regard for those who are effeminate. This particular attack was really the result of a conflict between these two groups.
This conflict continued throughout the war, with several of the effeminate group actually spending some time in concentration camps. As many as 6,000 “Pink Triangles”, died in the camps, however, please note that the Nazis often used false accusations to eliminate their opposition. Many heterosexual men were sent to the concentration camps on trumped up charges. One should also note that these people were not placed in death camps, but in work camps, and were often let out when they promised to join the army, or to change their behavior.
As I stated above, The Pink Swastika is factually accurate, and I have no argument with the facts they present. They have done an excellent job of compiling a lot of information that has been suppressed since World War 2. Yes indeed the Nazis were closely involved with the gays of their day, and the gay agenda does indeed intend to take away our freedoms, but the job of the Christian Church is not to take up arms as a freedom fighter, but to pick up the Sword of the Spirit and preach the gospel.
I do have a slight difference of opinion with the authors in the direction they are going. It appears to me that Lively Ministries is dedicated to fighting the gay agenda, and imposing strict anti-gay regulations on society.
On this issue I go back to the apostle Paul. There is no doubt that Paul stated that the homosexual lifestyle is offensive to God. (Romans 21:27) God created sexuality for the purpose of populating the earth with people. (Genesis 1:22, 28, 8:17, Isaiah 45:18) Homosexuality is rebellion against God’s plan for humanity. Indeed there is a prevalent philosophy today that says that having children is a bad thing! Even heterosexuals participate in this rebellion, and you can be sure it hasn’t escaped God’s attention!
I would also like to point to Paul’s treatment of Nero.
In Suetonius’ The Twelve Caesars, in the chapter on TIBERIUS NERO CAESAR, section XXVIII, Suetonius records that Nero had a boy, named Sporus, castrated, and then married him. We therefore know that gay marriage is not something new, but can be seen as early as the first century. Rather than stand up and denounce Caesar publicly, Paul’s desire was to have an audience with him, and to give him the gospel. (Acts 25-28) Paul understood that God has a strong desire to save every soul possible, even the gay Caesar. This is something that is lost on many modern Christian activists.
While it appears that Paul was ultimately executed by Nero, he never led a rebellion against Rome. Rather, he simply did, and said, that which was right in God’s eyes.
In a recent broadcast by Brannon Howse, Brannon notes that every time throughout history, that Christians have attempted to dominate the culture, it has always led to Christians abandoning the gospel, and becoming apostate. Don’t think that you will be the exception!
Does this subject have an application to the End Times? Indirectly, yes. While many believe that Daniell 11:37 indicates that the Antichrist will be gay, I personally believe the passage is speaking of something else.
37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
The phrase “the desire of women” is the one in question here. Many scholars believe that since “the desire of women” is to marry and have children, that this reference indicates that the Antichrist will be gay. While they are correct that this is the desire of women, this is not what is in view here.
If you look at women in the bible from Genesis 3:16, through the lives of women like Sarah, Rachel and Leah, Lot’s daughters, Hannah, the Shunnamite woman, and Elizabeth, you will indeed see that the desire of women is strongly connected to having a husband and children. The Antichrist could not marry all the women of the world, but this is not a reference to his personal life. This reference is to his policies as a law-maker.
This is a sign that the whole world will see, but because of false teaching on this subject, like those of the aforementioned scholars, the world will miss it! Because of the widespread teaching that the Antichrist will be gay, the world will miss the signs if he is not gay!
But what did Paul say was a sign of the End Times?
1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 1 Timothy 4:1-3
So we see here the link between “the desire of women” and the Antichrist’s actions in “not regarding” it. The Antichrist will arise shortly after two major wars, those of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39. As is usual in times of war, more men will die than women. Generally soldiers kill other soldiers, and usually armies are mostly male in gender.
The bible actually gives us a ratio of men to women after the Gog/Magog war:
And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: Ezekiel 39:2
This passage has been removed from many of the modern versions. I believe the reason is that Satan is trying to hide a major sign of the Antichrist! As these soldiers leave Israel and return to the nations they have come from, they will be confronted by a situation where there are six women for each man.
The Antichrist will most likely be one of the administrators of these nations, appointed by either the UN or by Israel, in the aftermath of the Gog/Magog war. This is the situation that Daniel 11:37 is referring to. These nations are predominantly Muslim and the natural response of the survivors will be to allow polygamy so that no woman need live without children. It has always been this way in those lands. The Antichrist will respond by prohibiting polygamy. He may prohibit all forms of marriage, I’m not sure, but he certainly will prohibit polygamy. As a result, the western world will applaud this man as a “Man of God”.
How do I know this? Did I just make it up myself? I don’t think so. All we need to do is look at a section regarding the return of Christ. Isaiah 3 & 4 is the section I’m referring to. The early part of chapter 3 is the prelude to the Tribulation. It describes the sin of Israel, and God’s anger with them. The setting starts off with ancient Israel, but then it shifts seamlessly to the distant future of the Tribulation period. The sins of ancient Israel will be perpetuated in the Israel of the End Times. Then God describes the effect of Armageddon:
Isaiah 3:24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty. 25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war. 26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.
Many have claimed that this must have been fulfilled in an ancient war. It may be partially so, but it will have its ultimate fulfillment in Armageddon. As we go into chapter 4, we see that the effects of this war will carry on into the millennial reign of Christ:
4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.
Barrenness, or the inability to have children has been called a “reproach” in at least two places in the bible. (Genesis 30:23, Luke 1:25) Notice also that these women are not asking for an illicit affair, but for the man’s name, or marriage. This is key, for these women are saved women who have survived Armageddon.
“But this doesn’t say it occurs in the millennial reign of Christ”, I can hear you say. Well, hold on. Let’s look at the next verse:
2 In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.
The phrase “In that day” can mean either “at the same time” or “the second event closely follows the first, as a direct result of it”. What this phrase can not mean is “the second event follows the first by some two thousand years”! No way! To do so is to make a mockery of language, and render it incomprehensible!
So, Who is the “branch of the Lord”? It is Jesus and none other! Furthermore, Isaiah 53:2 records that at His first coming He “he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.” This tells us, in no uncertain terms, that the passage in question is referring to the early years of the millennial reign of Christ. We can go on and see it throughout the chapter:
3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:
Does this situation exist today, or at any time in the past 2500 years? No! It is a yet future event. Not only are the residents of Jerusalem not holy today, but Jesus, the Branch is not physically here on earth.
4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. 5 And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence. 6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.
Note that the very same women mentioned in verse 1 are mentioned again in verse 4, as having had their filth washed away. These women would not ask this request of these men, without first having the permission of Jesus Christ Himself! Not only this but the other events mentioned have not yet happened. The cloud of smoke by day, and the pillar of fire by night, has not occurred since the Exodus from Egypt, and will not happen again until Jesus returns.
Isaiah 3-4 is a passage that encompasses the time from the return of Israel, up until the early years of the millennial reign of Christ. It does not cover all the details, but only certain related events which will occur at that time.
Isaiah 4:1 gives us an exact reference point for the phrase “He shall not regard…the desire of women” of Daniel 11:37. The desire of women is exactly expressed by the women in Isaiah 4:1. It is this desire that the Antichrist will not “regard”, or care about, when he makes his laws as he begins to rule the world. What shocks me is that Many Muslims, Hindu’s, and Buddhists, will begin to understand that there is something wrong with this man, while many Christians will be blissfully ignorant, and support him until it is too late!
This post has been an introduction to the main points of chapter 8 of The Spirit of Prophecy. I have gone into detail with each passage and person referenced here, to show that I am indeed telling the truth, and there are many more relevant passages besides these. We also study the law of Moses in relation to marriage as well as the teachings of Jesus Christ Himself. You will see that there was no contradiction between Moses and Jesus on this subject. If I have piqued your interest might I suggest that you get a copy yourself and study this subject in depth?
So, will the Antichrist be gay? Since most of the Caesars were, there is a real possibility that he could be, but that is not what Daniel 11:37 is talking about. This is a sign that the whole world will see. Something that can be easily misinterpreted, and only a few will really understand what is going on. There is a real possibility that this is the very first sign of the Antichrist, and it may occur before the rapture of the Church. If you see it, I hope you will be wise.
