Events Surrounding the Return of Jesus Christ, part 3

In Revelation chapter 10 the angel told us what to expect when the seventh angel blows his trumpet, and in chapter11 we see the seventh trumpet being blown, and notice what the Heavenly voices say about it;

15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

So, not only is the mystery of God now finished, but now Jesus is declared the rightful ruler of this planet, He is here on earth, and His reign has begun, even with the Beast still attempting to reign! This event, in the middle of the Tribulation, is the beginning of the Millennial Reign! It would appear then, that the seven year Tribulation straddles the last 3 1/2 years of the Church-Age, and the first 3 1/2 years of the Millennial Reign!

Now in chapter 13 we see the False Prophet setting up the Abomination of Desolation, and implementing the Mark of the Beast! Since Jesus has already been declared the ruler of this planet, the Mark of the Beast is an illegal mandate made by an imposter! Obedience to this mandate is disobedience to the command of God, “thou shalt have no gods before me”, and is a form of Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit!

5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. Revelation 13:5-6

What blasphemous things might the Antichrist say about “them that dwell in Heaven”? Who are “them that dwell in Heaven” at this time? Well, not only the saints of all previous ages, but the Raptured Church-age saints! These Raptured saints are the ones He focuses on, because they are the only ones that give him any trouble! They have disappeared shortly after the Gog and Magog war, but they had prevoiusly spoken about the Rapture, and the “rumours” of the Rapture have not disappeared, but have strengthened!

As people, including the 144,000 Jewish evangelists, speak about the Rapture, which the world had seen, more and more people are coming to Christ, so the Beast has to lie about it to stop this! His explanation will turn the Holy Spirit into the devil, which is the unforgivable sin, and anyone who takes the Mark of the Beast is making a public statement that he/she agrees with this blasphemous explanation!

While John speaks of prophets in the plural, I have not yet discovered all the passages that speak of Jesus’ agreement with His Father, but I can show you one;

I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early. Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Hosea 5:15-6:2

Here is another place where many bible teachers skip part of the passage and thus take the passage out of context; if you only read 6:1-2 together, you might think the two days timing begins when Israel calls on the Lord! This is incorrect; verse 5:15 shows that the count-down begins when Jesus left, and the two days are the thousand year days of 2 Peter 3:1-8, and Psalm 90, the Psalm of Moses!

Israel does not call upon the Lord during one 24 hour period, but it takes 7 years for the whole nation to be saved! Even then, many of the Hebrew unbelievers will die in their sins, and none of them who take the Mark of the Beast, who support the Jewish False Prophet, will be saved!

The truth is that not all of the Jews who flee at the Abomination of Desolation will be believers at that time, but will mourn for Him when they see Him, and will believe in Him when they see Him! When they see the scars in His hands, and see Him fighting for Israel, then they will believe!

And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. Zechariah 12:10

Notice also in Hosea 5:15 that Israel will seek Him early in their “affliction”! This is the first three and a half years of the Tribulation, and the 144,000 Jewish evangelists of this time are the firstfruits of Israel’s national revival! They are not the only new believers in Israel, but they will lead many Israelis, and Gentiles to faith in the Messiah during their ministry. Their ministry is only in the first half of the Tribulation, and they are Raptured, like the Church, at the end of their ministry!

1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.

2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. Revelation 14:1-3

Notice in verse 1 that Jesus is physically with them on mount Zion, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This is because the 7th trumpet has already been blown in chapter 11, the Mystery of God is over, and He is free to come and go at will! Chronologically, this is very close to the time when the Antichrist’s idol is presented in the Temple, only a few feet away from where Jesus and these evangelists meet! The way it is written, it appears that Jesus meets the 144,000 only days, or perhaps hours, or even minutes, after the Antichrist’s Mark is mandated, from the very same spot!

Zechariah 14 shows that there is an earthquake when Jesus feet touch down on the Mount of Olives, and the people of Jerusalem flee from the Antichrist through the new valley which will be created! Revelation 11:13 shows a great earthquake in Jerusalem just as the seventh trumpet is blown, where the kingdoms of this earth are declared to be the kingdoms of our God, around the time the Beast sets up his idol in the Temple! Could this be at exactly the same time? Does Jesus interrupt the Antichrist’s idol ceremony in the Temple, with a great earthquake that kills 7,000 in Jerusalem, at the same time as the Beast begins forcing the world to take his mark?

Then notice in verse 3 that the 144,000 are now suddenly in Heaven before the throne, with the angelic beasts and the elders from Revelation 4! Someone once said to me that these witnesses die on the Temple mount, and that is how they get to Heaven! I don’t believe this is true; it doesn’t say they die, and Jesus is there physically on the Temple Mount! Surely He is capable of physically saving them, and translating them to Heaven before the Beast and his forces can get to them! Surely Jesus is more powerful than the forces of the Beast! No! This is another Rapture, just shortly after the two witnesses are taken to Heaven in the sight of the world!

In Revelation 11:19 we see the Ark of the Covenant also appearing in Heaven! This is a Rapture of a physical object! The Ark is currently on the earth, hidden in a secret, sealed chamber beneath the Temple Mount, but it will be in the new Temple when it is rebuilt, and ultimately it will end up in Heaven when there is the danger of it being destroyed by the Antichrist! He won’t get the chance, because it will be gone before he gets to it!

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

In the bible, first Enoch was taken directly to Heaven, before the flood, then Elijah was taken in a whirlwind. Then Jesus was raptured after his resurrection. The Church is Raptured before the start of the Tribulation (Isaiah 26:19-21, Zephaniah 2:3, Psalm 50:4-6, Luke 21:28, 36, 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 2 Thessalonians 1:7, and others…). Then in the Tribulation, the the two witnesses (who might actually be Enoch and Elijah) are taken to Heaven, then the Ark of the Covenant, and finally the 144,000! These last two occur after the seventh trumpet judgment is blown, when Jesus is free to show Himself at will!

The Tribulation is a time of escalating supernatural activity on the earth!

I think we have discovered the prophetic timing of Zechariah 14:1-5, to occur at the same time as the Abomination of Desolation, in Matthew 24:15-22! This is the best explanation for when these events occur, but as usual, it also leaves us with more questions;

For example; if the 144,000 are Raptured at the mid-point of the Tribulation, do they just get to Heaven and then turn around and come back to earth with the saints? Are the 144,000 Raptured after Jesus returns with the saints?

It also says of them:

These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb Rev. 14:4

So, from the time that they first meet Him, in person, they go wherever He goes! From the account, He meets them on the Temple mount, and then they are in Heaven with Him, singing a new song before the throne. Zechariah 14 indicates that Jesus comes to earth to fight for Israel, and that fight will go on for some time! Eventually Satan gives up, and then goes after Christ’s followers all around the world (Revelation 12:13-17). Does Jesus come and go between Heaven and earth during the second half of the Tribulation, with the 144,000 accompanying Him in His travels? Well, yes, but so does the Church!

You didn’t think you were just going to sit around on a cloud singing, did you? The problems of this life are lessons you will need during the Millennial Kingdom, that is if you are saved!

Are you saved? Are you aware of your status before God? Here are some things He says about you and me;

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Romans 3:10-12

We cannot stand before God in our own righteousness. All of us have failed to meet God’s holy standards. The Creator of this world not only ownes this world and everything in it, He also owns the sun, and the light energy it produces. He owns the plants that take that energy and turn it into sugars, through His proprietary process of photosynthesis. When we eat that food which contains God’s energy, and then turn around and sin against Him, we are using His own energy against Him! He has a right to demand a punishment for sin!

Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. Ezekiel 18:4

He is not talking about physical death here, because even the sinless Son of God died, but rather, He is talking about eternal death; an eternal conscious death in the Lake of Fire! That Lake was created for the devil and his angels, and God doesn’t want you to share it with them. This is why He came to earth to provide a substitute, who would die for your sin, so you wouldn’t have to!

6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: Romans 5:6-12

We have earned God’s wrath when we deliberately sinned, but God wants to take away our sin, and give us an amazing gift!

23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:8-13

I hope that, if you are already a Christian, that this brief refresher has been enjoyable to you, but if not I hope you take Him up on His wonderful offer! The time is short, Jesus is coming soon!

(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) II Corinthians 6:2

Events Surrounding the Return of Jesus Christ, Part 2

In the first part of this series I examined the idea that Jesus Christ will return at the Mid-Point of the Tribulation, and I gave some verses to back this up. If you haven’t read it I would urge you to read part 1 before reading this article. This article will build on some of the ideas presented, and will add more Scripture to support this contention…

Zechariah has something to add to the discussion about the resurrection of the Antichrist:

“Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.” Zechariah 11:17

You see, when the Antichrist, the Idol Shepherd, is resurrected from the dead, he will not be whole, but the wound that killed him will still have the effect that he does not have the use of one arm, and he will be blind in his right eye! If he was really the “Son of God” he would be raised whole! By the way, this man will be resurrected around the time that the two Witnesses of Revelation 11:3-12 are resurrected, and taken to Heaven in the sight of the world! The second half of the Tribulation is full of supernatural activity!

Nevertheless, a large part of the world will follow this man, and take his mark! This act is a type of Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, the unforgivable sin! Taking this mark is an act of worship, and is also a statement of faith, that the blasphemous explanation he gives for the Rapture of the Church was the “work of Satan (or aliens)”! Therefore anyone who takes this mark will be guaranteed a place in the Lake of Fire!

Notice also in Zechariah chapter 14 that it appears that Jesus’ return seems to coincide with the flight of Israel to Petra, when the Abomination of Desolation is set-up in the Temple!

1″ Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee”. Zechariah 14:1-5

Here we have a prophecy about the Return of the Lord Jesus Christ, during the Tribulation. Notice in verse 2 that it does not say why “the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city”, it is merely given as a statement of fact. Personally I think they are not “cut off from the city” because they are supporters of the False Prophet! Don’t forget that he is Jewish, and he will have a Jewish support base! The true believers are spoken of in verses 4-5. They will flee when they see the Abomination of Desolation, and Jesus will go before them like a Shepherd!

Jesus is going forth to fight for His people Israel, in verse 3, and then we have Him touching down on the Mount of Olives, in verse 4. What’s going on is verses 1-3 describe the purpose of His return, and then we have Him setting foot on the earth, with all of His saints, in verses 4- 5! By the way the Mount of Olives is the exact same place he left from, 40 days after His resurrection! It is also within sight of the Temple mount, the very site where the False Prophet sets-up the Abomination of Desolation!

There will be a great earthquake when He sets foot on the mount of Olives, and a new valley will be created so that the people of Israel can flee through this new valley to the place of refuge He has prepared for them! It is this earthquake itself, and the confusion that it causes, that give His people the chance to escape! Notice that Jesus is not going to leave after touching down on the mount! He’s here to fight for His people, Israel! He is leading them, like a Shepherd, to their place of safety!

Psalm 108 speaks about this same time frame:

9 “Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.

10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?

“11 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?”

Casting out a shoe is an expression of extreme disgust, or contempt! Nevertheless, God is going to take His people into Edom, the nation founded by Jacob’s brother Esau. Don’t think this is talking about God taking His people into Edom spiritually, He is going to do it personally, physically, in the flesh! He is taking them to the place of refuge He has prepared for them, the city of Petra, Edom’s ancient capital, and in fact the place where Mohammad grew up! Not only is He taking His people into Edom, the very nation of the Antichrist, but He will be leading raiding parties out of Edom against His enemies, all around the world!

Yes Jesus did reject Israel, after they rejected Him, but He has a plan to get them back. He has always had this plan, at least since the time of Moses (Deut. 4:26-31), and there are references to this plan all over the Old Testament! Jesus will keep His promises to Israel, just as He will keep His promises to the Church!

One of the limitations of the printed word is that things that occur simultaneously cannot be written in the same space on the page! You would have words on top of words, and it would be an unintelligible mess! Very often, in Scripture, things that occur close in context don’t always appear consecutively, or even together! Sometimes you have later events first and earlier events written about later; simultaneous events might appear to be consecutive in order, or even in completely different books!

What Jesus said in Matthew 24 is very important in this context; no doubt the earthquake has interrupted power lines, and internet connections! All the surveillance cameras will be off temporarily! It is only a matter of time before these things are restored! Thus, they only have a few hours to get to a place of safety! Once the internet is restored, the Beast and his minions will be able to figure out where the missing people have gone, and the battle will be on!

Isaiah has this to say about this time:

1 “Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.

2 For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.

3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.

4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.

5 For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.

6 The sword of the Lord is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the Lord hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.” Isaiah 34:1-6

Notice in verse 3 that it says of the armies of Israel’s enemies “the mountains shall be melted with their blood”? This is a reference to what is going on in Petra: When the believers of Israel flee from the Antichrist, it won’t be long until he and his forces know where these refugees have gone, and he will send his armies to hunt them down! These armies are world armies but it appears that they are led by Idumeans! The events of verse 2 are chronologically later than the events of verse 3!

Those armies will first attempt to get into their refuge through the narrow passageways that lead into the city. They will meet Jesus there, and He will slaughter them in the way! Eventually when they realize that there is “something” in the passageway killing their soldiers, they will attempt to climb over the mountains, to either shoot down into the people gathered there, or to get in among them, and then kill them!

No doubt the Antichrist himself will use verses 5 and 6 to motivate his troops to go into Petra and to kill the refugees there! He will claim that he is the Lord of this passage, and the people in the city are going to be his sacrifice! As his troops climb the mountains surrounding Petra, however, they will meet Jesus and He will fulfill this passage literally, and the Antichrist’s armies will be the “goats and lambs” of His sacrifice in Bozrah! (Petra is in the Jordanian region of Bozrah)!

The problem with the idea that Jesus will only return at the end of the Tribulation is that Israel needs Him to protect them the day they flee from the Beast! They can’t wait 3 1/2 more years for Him to return! Satan and all of his powers will be concentrating on destroying the people of Israel, hidden in Petra!

This is the time John wrote about in Revelation 12

14 “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

17 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.”

So Israel flees for 3 1/2 years, and on their way to their refuge Satan tries to destroy them with a flood! Did you know that Russia has a nuclear torpedo called a Poseidon, which has the ability to park itself on the sea bed and to detonate when it receives a signal? This way it allows the Russian navy to get out of the way before it explodes and sends a giant radioactive tsunami towards nearby cities! I wonder if this is what Satan will use in his attempt to kill the refugees of Israel as they flee around the Dead Sea towards the passageway that goes into the city of Petra? Evidently there will be some sort of earthquake which redirects the water away from these refugees!

The common idea that Zechariah 14 occurs at the end of the Tribulation means that the people of Israel would flee in the middle, when the Abomination of Desolation is set-up in the Temple, but not all of them flee, and they are still there to be saved some 3 1/2 years later when He sets foot on the Mount of Olives. That would mean that His warning of Matthew 24:16-19, to flee without taking anything, was unnecessary, and that they could have stayed in the city to wait for Him to return 3 1/2 years later! Obviously, there is something wrong with this Christian Tradition! Personally, I think that if there are any Jews left in Jerusalem by the End of the Tribulation, they are still there because they took the Mark of the Beast, and he left them alone!

In Revelation 10 there is a statement about the seventh trumpet judgment that is often misunderstood by Christians. This misunderstanding stems from the verse positions and the fact that sometimes sentences are split-up by verse numbers. Revelation 10:5-7is actually one sentence. Here is the part that is frequently misunderstood:

5 “And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:” Revelation 10:5,6

Many bible scholars and teachers stop here and say that this means that time itself will now end, but that is not what is being said! What is ending is the “time of something…”

Do you see that colon at the end of verse 6? It means that verses 6 and 7 are one sentence, and the next clause explains what has just been said. Unfortunately many bible commentators stop at the end of verse 6, as if this is the end of the sentence!

Here is the rest of the sentence:

“But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” Revelation 10:7

What is the mystery of God, which has existed throughout the Church-age? You see, when Jesus walked on the earth, there was no mystery; God was on the earth, and you could talk to Him, and touch Him, and even eat a meal with Him, but 40 days after His resurrection, He left this earth, and 10 days later He was replaced by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has been intimately involved in the life of every human being since that time. He controls the details of our life, yet without ever violating our free will!

Evidently, Jesus made a deal with His Father, God, that He wouldn’t return until a certain amount of time took place! And yes, the bible does tell us how long this will be. We will discuss this in the next installment…

Events Surrounding the Return of Jesus Christ Part 1

Wow! I just realized it has been over a year since my last post! I’m sorry, I just thought it was a few months. Well I guess 12 is still a few! I’ll try to post more often than once per year! This article will be the first in a series of 3.

During my personal bible studies, I recently came across an interesting puzzle; we have been told Jesus returns at, or near, the End of the Tribulation, but what does the bible say about it? Is it possible that Christians have got some things wrong? Yes, it is possible to be a Born Again, Blood Bought Child of God and to still make mistakes! The truth is that the Protestants of the Reformation had been Amillennial in their time under the Roman Church, and it took a while for them to come out from under Rome’s influence, and to accept the bible only as their source of truth. The British Christians made some major advances with the rediscovery of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture, and other major rediscoveries, but progress has been slow!

So, should we stick with our traditions, or lean on the Scriptures alone? Do the Scriptures teach something different than the most common interpretations of the End Times Prophecies? Does Jesus return near the End of the Tribulation, or does He return at some other time? I don’t mean what date, because that is impossible to know, but I mean “at what point during the Tribulation will He return to earth?” Chronologically, at what point in the seven year Tribulation will He return?

Most bible prophecy scholars will tell you that Jesus returns near to or at the end of the Tribulation period, to set-up His earthly kingdom. I have found, in my studies, that He will return in the middle of the Tribulation, it might even be in the exact middle!

You mean that He doesn’t leave them alone to face the Antichrist for three and a half years? Why would he do that? Can’t He protect them by the power of the Holy Spirit alone? Well, for one thing, Israel can’t survive without Him! He will fight for them against the armies of the Antichrist! These armies are the most technologically advanced armies in the history of the world! They have weapons that we know nothing about, but we do know about their laser weapons which are capable of downing aircraft with a high intensity beam of light! If they can do that to aircraft they can certainly do similar things to people on the ground! No, Israel needs Jesus to be there with them when they flee from the Beast!

Two: He needs to teach them before they rule the earth with Him and the Church! Just as the Church needs to be in their glorified bodies, and needs to spend some time in Heaven before we return with Him, Israel, still in their fleshly bodies will need time to understand the Lord’s plan for the Millennial Kingdom! Not only will they witness Him fighting for them, but He will personally teach them. The Church will probably be involved in this as well! And three; He will fight the Armies of the Antichrist all around the world, wherever they are; He doesn’t do this all at once, but bit by bit, by hiding his power!

3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.

4 And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power Habakkuk 3:3,4

Teman is a region in Edom, as is Paran, and the city of Petra. Why does God come from Edom? In the context of the Great Tribulation it is because His people are in hiding there from the armies of the Antichrist! He is there to protect them! He is also doing a special work with them in their place of refuge, Petra, as this is the restoration of Israel long prophesied by His prophets! When He leaves this place, He will return there after dealing with the Antichrist’s armies in various locations around the world! He will also be taking the saints with Him, as well as living Israelites! They will together, with the power of Christ, destroy the armies of the beast, and then return to their place of refuge, for a rest!

Note: the Antichrist himself is also from Edom, and will use verses like Habakkkuk 3:3-4, out of context, to prove that the Messiah comes from Israel’s neighbour to the east, and from the descendants of Jacob’s brother, Esau!

Jesus has the power to destroy all of His enemies with one breath, but He won’t do that! He goes after them one soldier at a time, and one battle at a time. Why? If He were to show all of His power at once they would lay down their arms and ask for forgiveness! At this point in the Tribulation He is not in the mood to forgive His enemies, who have committed Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit! (by taking the Mark of the Beast) No! His behaviour is based on their rebellion; having been given every chance to receive Him as Lord and Saviour, they have rejected His offer of forgiveness, and He is now pouring out His wrath upon them!

For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. Isaiah 28:21

What is His “strange act”? Only that His behaviour is in accord with the expectations of His enemies! They think He is an “alien”, so He acts in the way they would expect an “alien” to act! This way they double-down in their fight against Him. By acting this way it allows them to think that they can defeat Him! By hiding his power they think He is weak, and it encourages them in their fight against Him!

(Note: for some time now New Agers have been told by their demonic “spirit guides” that “Jesus is an alien, who is going to return in His space ship”! This should bring a new understanding to their reaction to the “sign of the son of man, in heaven” in Matt. 24:30)

But back to our main subject: How many times will Israel flee from the Antichrist?

In Matthew 24 we read Jesus’ command for Israel to flee from the Antichrist when they see the Abomination of Desolation standing in the Temple in Jerusalem;

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

In verse 16 we see that this command is directed toward those who live in Israel. We know from other Scriptures that the place they go to is a short walk away from Jerusalem, across the Dead Sea in Petra, the former capital of the nation of Edom.

Notice the urgency of this command: verses 16 thru 18 emphasize the fact that they have very little time to get to their destination; having any sort of burden, including children, could slow them down enough that they are killed! They are not to take anything from their homes, and those in the field are not even to return home to collect anything! Their window of opportunity is very short!

The Abomination of Desolation occurs in Revelation 13 shortly after the Antichrist is risen from the dead! He is risen in verse 3, and the idol that the false prophet sets up, commands that everyone in the world must worship the Beast or die, in verse 15, and in verse 16 the false prophet forces everyone to take the mark of the Beast or die!

Think about it; the world has not seen anyone rise from the dead since Jesus was raised some 2,000 years ago. This will be the supernatural event that is used as the reason why the world must worship the Beast! He will make claims of deity, like Jesus, and use his resurrection as proof of his deity!

Isaiah 14 speaks of this event, like it is a genuine resurrection, which will mean that the Beast will be resurrected in his eternal body! Here is the passage, and please note that it starts with a statement about Israel in the early days of the Millennial kingdom:

3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,

4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

(The time that Israel is “given rest from their sorrow and their fear and hard bondage” can only be during the Millennial Kindom! This has not yet happened, and will not happen until the Tribulation is over! This “king of Babylon” is not an ancient king of Babylon, but the final End Times king of Babylon, the Antichrist!)

5 The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.

6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.

7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.

9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

(This man has actually died, signified in verse 8 with “laid down” and then went to Hell, or Hades, and the world leaders he has killed notice that he is there among them!)

10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?

11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

(Note that the dead world leaders mock this man as he enters Hades/Hell with them. The word translated as “Lucifer” here is “heylel” which means “light bearer” and it can also mean “the morning star”! Jesus is called “the morning star”, but this person is a counterfeit on many levels, even to the point of being raised from the dead, like Jesus!)

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

(Many think this passage is referring to Satan, but this is Satan’s closest human associate; this man is to Satan what Jesus is to God! Worship of this man IS worship of Satan!)

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

(He goes to Hell, not the Lake of Fire, but Hell, Sheol, or Hades, which is the holding place for the lost dead, who are waiting for the White Throne Judgment, then they are cast into the Lake of Fire)

16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.

19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

This man has a short stay in Hell! Here the Beast is cast out of his grave like an “abominable branch”! Who is “the Branch”? Well, it’s Jesus of course, and He was raised from the dead, but here, the man who is the opposite of Jesus is resurrected! This is no fake resurrection, but the real thing! The world will witness this resurrection on their TVs, their computers, and their smart phones!

20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.

Time in Hell, or Hades, is bad, but not nearly as bad as the Lake of Fire! These other sinners must wait for 1,000 years before they too are thrown into the Lake of Fire, after the Great White Throne Judgment.

21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

22 For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Lord. Isaiah 14:3-22

Verses 21 and 22 indicate that this man has children, and nephews as well! God will cut off this family so there will not be any who claim the right to the throne! It may be possible that some of the women might get saved, but not the men and boys!

Question: Which “Babylon” is in view here? The Babylons of Revelation 17 and 18 cannot be taken 100% literally, since the original Babylon was built on the plains of Shinar, and did not have seven hills, or mountains! Either the mountains of Revelation 17 are allegorical, or the city is not the original Babylon. I personally believe that the Babylon of Revelation 17 is literally Babylon, and the mountains are the “Seven Mountain Mandate” of the New Apostolic Reformation! The “Babylon” of Revelation 18 is NOT the original Babylon, but it is a city of seven literal mountains, not Rome, but Amman, Jordan.

Rome has had the spirit of Babylon for over 2,000 years, but that spirit will move back to the original Babylon once Rome is destroyed, probably during the Gog and Magog war of Ezekiel 38-39.

So, what’s my point? Only that the resurrection of the Antichrist is a genuine resurrection, which will have occurred by the time that the mark of the Beast is mandated! At the time that Jesus returns there will be another man on the earth who has been resurrected from the dead, and who also claims to be God in the flesh! The conflict between them is a war to the death; those who take the Mark of the Beast are choosing death!

We will continue this discussion in the next instalment…

Can Prophets Speak of Things that Don’t Exist?

Recently while watching an End Times Prophecy video, by Billy Crone, I encountered a teaching that I was not aware of. In fact this teaching contradicts plain statements in the Scriptures. It also turns out that this teaching is more common amongst Evangelicals than I realized!

Because Billy Crone is so good on so many subjects I realized that I need to do a response to this teaching. We all make mistakes, and when we do, and are confronted with the truth, we need to repent, backtrack and keep on going serving the Lord!

<iframe class=”rumble” width=”640″ height=”360″ src=”; frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

(Note, if the video doesn’t show up, please follow this link: )

When we think we know something we often forget to pray and ask God for enlightenment. After all, why would we? After all, if we “know the truth” why would we keep on searching?

One thing I learned a long time ago is “something that is true will never be contradicted by something else that is true”. Sometimes, however, we think we know things, but what we “know” is really what a well-meaning person told us, based on their own reasoning, and it is wrong!

I have heard Billy Crone say that the Word of God should be our Go-To book on every subject, and he is correct in this!

I hope he will get back to the Word of God, and reject the traditions he was taught! Any tradition we believe, which contradicts the bible is not a tradition we should hang on to!

“The Vaccine Edict”: RCMP Member Sent on “Unpaid Leave” Writes this Powerful Letter You Must Read

This RCMP officer has some good things to say, and some real Science! Something you will not get from the Federal, or Provincial governments, nor from Mainstream Media!


By Corporal Richard Mehner Global Research, December 31, 2021Easton Spectator 29 December 2021Region: CanadaTheme: Media Disinformation


Hi everyone,

Since most members make a goodbye email before they leave, I figured I should as well, despite the “special” circumstances around my departure. Anyways, my time here in the RCMP is up. For now. The low T wannabe tyrants in Ottawa have decided that I can no longer serve as a police officer because I refuse to tell them if I have submitted to their “vaccine” edict.

I’ve served in the RCMP for 21 years and one of the first things I said to any person I ever arrested was “you don’t have to say anything to me.”

Unfortunately, our government has told me that I have to tell them what’s in my body, and if the right drug is not inside me, I have to get it as condition of my continuing employment, human rights be damned. Why did I put vaccine in quotations above you ask? More on that later. Buckle up and tighten the straps on your government mandated shame muzzle, this goodbye email will likely ruffle some feathers.

My journey to this point of our dystopian, medical, apartheid state started like many of yours. Watching the television almost 2 years ago as reports started coming in of some strange virus out of Wuhan. I was a little concerned, but not much. You see, for the last 10 years of my life I had spent a lot of time as an amateur researcher of history and learned to my dismay that the official narrative of most events is usually a little suspect at best. Like weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, or the January 6th “insurrection” in D.C., the examples are sadly numerous.

I’ve also always been a very independent person. Following the herd has never appealed to me. When a belief is put forth to me I always evaluate it for myself and don’t simply accept it’s veracity based on the authority behind it. For example, during the last Federal Government census, I could not help but notice that the gender section had 3 boxes. Male, Female and other, which was a blank box. For real, the Federal Government of Canada allowed you to make up your own gender on the last official census. I found this to be a combination of amusing and insane. Feeling particularly bull headed and cheeky at the time, I naturally chose Minotaur as my gender. Yes, that’s right, on the Canadian government census my gender is that of a mythical giant man with the head of a bull.

So back to my Covid journey. I was skeptical of the pandemic from the start but decided to wait and see what evidence would surface of this dangerous pandemic. So I sat back and quietly observed. At that time, and still at the time I’m writing this, I was the admin NCO on the watch. I was in the unique position of seeing every file that came through PRIME in the 46 hour window I was at work each week. Naturally, this included all sudden death files. Pay attention now, have another sip of your latte if you have to. Since the pandemic began, until now, I was in a position to see every single sudden death file that came through our detachment area. What did I notice in this position? Nothing. No upwards trend whatsoever. Funny enough, I didn’t see people dropping dead in my neighbourhood either.

This was a very stark contrast to what I saw in media.

A non-stop chorus on TV, radio, and internet, of case counts, hospitalizations and deaths. At no time in my life had I seen anything like it. A complete disconnect between my observed reality and that which was portrayed by my government and the government subsidized mainstream media.

And they were reporting deaths in care homes. Care homes? When did the media ever report deaths in care homes unless it was some sort of instance of gross negligence? It’s called end of life care for a reason. People go to care homes at the end of their life. Death is the natural consequence, and this fact used to be understood as common sense.

When the statistics started showing that the vast majority of anyone dying from Covid, either had one or more co-morbidities, or was older than the average life expectancy, my skepticism of the pandemic narrative only grew. Then in the summer of 2020, I got Covid. For a few days I was really tired and shivered a lot. Then it was over. I survived the “deadly” disease like the vast majority of anyone else who caught it. To be honest, I’ve had worse plus, and worse hangovers.

At the end of 2020 I became convinced we were all being force fed a giant load of absolute bullshit. Don’t believe me? Look at world population statistics. Here’s a sample. At the end of 2018, the world population was 7,631,091,040 and that year 57,625,149 people died. This showed an overall death rate of .76%. I know some of you are shocked by this, but yes, 57 million people died of all types of causes in 2018. When you reach the end of your life, you die. At the end of 2019, the world population was 7,713,468,100 and 58,394,378 died. Naturally, because we had more people reaching the end of their lives, more people died. The death rate that year was .76%. Now let’s see what 2020 brought us. The year of the pandemic. At the end of 2020, the world population was 7,794,798,739 and 59,230,795 died. The death rate was .76%. Yes. That’s right. In the year of the deadly pandemic the world’s population grew by 81,330,639 people and the death rate did not change by even a hundredth of a percent. The media never once pulled back the lens to show this, they continued to show the narrow focus of case counts and Covid deaths. Even going so far as to change causes of death so that someone who died “with” Covid in their system was counted as someone who died “of” Covid. The Western world shut down over a disease about as deadly as the common flu. And our rights were shut down along with it.
Despite this disease having a non existant effect on the overall death rate of the world’s population the call came out for a mass vaccination. Since I was already skeptical of the pandemic, I was naturally skeptical of the need for a “vaccine”. Oh look, vaccine is in quotations again. Why am I doing that?

Because it’s not a f^#king vaccine!!!

A vaccine is created when a virus from nature is made harmless in a lab and then cultivated there. The vaccine, created from the neutered virus, is then injected into a person. The body then reacts to the vaccine just like it would to the unaltered, dangerous virus. However, because the vaccine is a modified harmless version of the virus, it doesn’t cause disease and the body’s natural immunity is able to “learn” how to cope with the virus. This “learning” is lifelong and is why people develop an immunity to whatever they were inoculated against. People who have been vaccinated against Measles do not get Measles, and the same with mumps etc etc. None of the so called Covid “vaccines” meet this definition. If you were wondering why “vaccinated” people are still getting Covid, and spreading it, this is why. The fact that “vaccinated” people still get Covid and spread it should tell you that this madness will never end as long as you buy into the official narrative.

How these new Covid “vaccines” work is based on a brand new technology never used on a massive scale. Particularly in regards to the 2 “vaccines” most heavily promoted, Moderna and Pfizer. These drugs use artificial Mrna technology. Think of Mrna as the software of our bodies. The operating instructions. Pfizer and Moderna use artificial Mrna based on a computer algorithm. These instructions are encapsulated in something called a nano lipid. A nano lipid is a tiny envelope of fat. There are trillions of these nano lipids in the Pfizer and Moderna shots. Once injected they circulate through your body through your body’s lymphatic system.

Upon the nano lipids dissolving, your body receives new instructions for its immune system. These instructions tell your immune system to make spike proteins which resemble the spike proteins of the Covid virus. This is the key distinction you need to be aware of. Your body is being instructed to make the very pathogen that your immune system builds a defense against. This is completely uncharted territory and nothing like this has ever been done on the human population on such a large scale. The drug companies themselves have admitted they don’t know the long term side effects. When a recent FOIA request was sent to the FDA in the US, requesting the safety data they had on the Pfizer vaccine, the FDA asked a judge for 75 years to comply with the request. Nothing sketchy there.

To make matters worse. Every single Western nation has passed legislation shielding these drug companies from civil liability, if their vaccines harm people. While this legislation was passed years ago, it still applies to the Covid “vaccines.” You heard right. If the Moderna Covid “vaccine” harms you, you cannot sue Moderna. Same with every other drug company that makes any vaccine, Covid “vaccine” or not. They all have civil liability immunity for the vaccines they manufacture. Vaccine injury compensation has been paid out in the US under a tax funded program called the vaccine injury compensation fund, not as a remedy through civil lawsuits. Established in 1986, this fund has paid out $4.4 billion in claims. In Canada, we had no such vaccine injury fund until June of 2021. Hand on chin emoji goes here.

Make no mistake here. This is a large scale drug trial and whoever was jabbed is taking part. Having educated myself about these new drugs I was very skeptical when they started promoting them. Additionally, nearly all the drug companies making Covid “vaccines” have a very checkered history in quality control and ethics. J and J has payed 9 billion in settlements throughout it’s lifetime and Pfizer has payed $4.6 billion. Not for their vaccines of course, for their other pharmaceuticals. Moderna was founded in 2010 and their Covid “vaccine” is the first product they have ever put on the market. Information has since come to light that the Moderna “vaccine” was finishing in development in December of 2019, immediately before the pandemic hit. It’s almost like they were anticipating something. Do I dare put my hand on my chin and gaze thoughtfully upwards a second time?

As I was already skeptical about the entire pandemic narrative, I decided a long time ago that I was not going to take any of these “vaccines”. So as I had decided to sit back and watch how the so called pandemic unfolded, I decided to observe the vaccination campaign. One of the first things I noticed is that people like me were completely ignored and never talked about. What do I mean by people by like me? I mean people who had Covid and recovered. Suddenly, natural immunity didn’t exist anymore. Everyone had to get the vaccine regardless of whether they had natural immunity or not. Wait….. what? No one would ever suggest someone who had measles or polio should get vaccinated against those diseases. Why was natural immunity suddenly not talked about anymore? But if you knew where and how to look, it was talked about, and studied. The largest study was in Israel where the researchers concluded that natural immunity conveyed 27 times more protection than vaccination. Not double, not triple, 27 times! Fast Forward to recent times where an attorney in the US submitted a FOIA request, to the CDC, requesting records of any patient, who had a previous Covid infection, who was subsequently re-infected and then transmitted the Covid to another person. The CDC could not produce a single record of this ever happening. Yet for some bizarre reason, neither the government nor the media will ever talk about natural immunity and Covid together.

And now we are able to see much of the results of this mass vaccination campaign. And despite what you’ve been told, it’s not good. Data from the UK is showing that vaccinated adults under 60 are dying at twice the rate of the unvaccinated. American VAERS data shows these Covid “vaccines” have caused more deaths than all other vaccines combined in the last 30 years. In Europe, FIFA data has revealed a 500% increase in cardiac events and sudden deaths in soccer players. Very recently, the American Heart Association released a study which demonstrated that Mrna “vaccines” dramatically increase markers related to heart conditions. A recent German study showed that the higher a jurisdictions’ vaccination rate, the higher it’s mortality rate. On November 11th of this year, a Doctor Nagase came forward to report a record 13 still born births, in a 24 hour period, at BC Children’s hospital. They average 1 per month. During a very recent Ontario provincial parliament debate, MP Rick Nicholls confronted the health minister about a sharp rise in still births from vaccinated pregnant women in Ontario. All he got for his efforts was deflection. Despite this new evidence beginning to come light, there has been absolute silence in the media. Instead, they now want to vaccinate our children. Children are at a near zero risk from Covid. Vaccinating children with these experimental drugs, with unknown long term side effects, which are starting to show increasing adverse effects, is absolutely criminal.

Since I refuse to go along with this coerced “vaccination” campaign, I am being forced onto Leave without pay. Despite the fact that approximately 70% of the Federal workforce gets testing as an option, for some inexplicable reason, the RCMP, the CBSA and Federal Corrections have a mandatory vaccination order. I refuse to go along with this. This is nonsensical, illegal and unethical. I will continue to refuse and I have obtained legal representation, along with hundreds of other federal employees. We will get our day in court and we will win. Some may ask where our union stands on the issue. The answer is they didn’t. Our union leadership immediately bent the knee and offered no resistance whatsoever. Despite these setbacks, those who are fighting this know we have the truth on our side. The truth, at the moment, may be mere pebbles rolling down a slope. This will inevitably become an avalanche. So in reality, this isn’t a goodbye email, it’s a “see you in 2022” email.

Before I go, let me say this. Don’t be afraid. The government, and their mouthpieces in the mainstream media, have promoted a nonstop campaign of fear for almost 2 years now. Turn off your television and radios. Do your own research and question everything. Knowledge begins with asking questions. With each new variant they will try and frighten you, despite the fact that never in the history of virology has a virus ever mutated to become more deadly. Selective pressures always favour a more contagious, but less deadly mutation. The new “scariant” is Omicron. They don’t tell you that they skipped Mu and Xi in the Greek alphabet. Why? Because Mu or Xi just don’t sound scary. When you hear some brain dead parrot repeat the talking point “trust the science,” politely ask them to provide a definition of science. They never can because they don’t know. What they are really saying, but are too stupid to realize, is that they are saying “trust authority and don’t ask questions.” This, my friends, is the antithesis of science.

And get some sunshine. The latest German study, you know, actually science, showed an inverse relationship between vitamin d and Covid mortality rates. The study showed, given high enough vitamin d levels, a mortality rate of zero could be achieved. In addition, please don’t let them inject this “vaccine” into your children. Why on earth would you allow an experimental drug to be injected into your children, from pharmaceutical companies that have a history of civil litigation settlements, where these same companies have blanket legal immunity from the vaccines they create, for a disease that your children are completely safe from? It’s insanity. And the latest video where Trudeau explains he is excited to begin vaccinating children, looks completely psychotic and unhinged. Keep these lunatics away from your children. Your children are going to be just fine with their natural immunity.

I don’t know how many people will get to read this. I suspect that once certain ranks are aware of this email it will be pulled from the server. That right there speaks volumes in itself. Silencing the last message of a 21 year veteran who was forced to leave simply because he didn’t tell the government whether he had a drug in his body or not, doesn’t portray a leadership of transparency or good faith. On the contrary, it demonstrates both cowardice and a complete betrayal of any professed principles. Before I go, if any of you believe in courage and freedom. You aren’t alone. In fact, many members feel this way and they have created their own website: Another concerned group of freedom loving Canadians has created Check them out when you have time.

Anyways, I have taken up too much of your time as it is. Always laugh at those who would spread fear, and see you in 2022.

To Vaccinate or Not

Hello friends, It has been a busy summer, and one where we have been dealing with things we weren’t prepared to deal with!

Last week, for instance, while researching vaccines I discovered that fetal cell lines from aborted babies have been used in vaccine development since 1930, when the Polio vaccine was first being worked-on! That’s right! Five years before my father was born, they used the brain cells of an aborted baby to develop the Polio vaccine!

Interestingly this was the era when Adolf Hitler took power in Germany. He took over in 1933, but it was the same era, and it shows that the western world was in step, and even leading Germany in moral decline! That they would mandate the Polio vaccine knowing it was developed with an illegally obtained cell line, taken from an innocent baby, shortly before they killed it, shows a heartlessness, and cruelty that beggars belief!

When they entered the German Concentration Camps, Jewish women had their heads shaved. Their hair was made into felt mats, and then into mattresses, that German soldiers slept on!

No doubt God holds those who slept on those mattresses, at least partly responsible for the atrocities of the Holocaust!

I see no difference between Germany’s treatment of Jews, and modern western nation’s treatment of their own children! In both cases it is reprehensible! Abominable! And it is going to bring down the wrath of God on our nations!

Rather than getting “vaccinated” Christians should be loudly protesting this atrocity in our midst!

When you take these “vaccines” the companies that made them get paid! They are making billions of dollars by producing these poisons! Your government uses a portion of your tax dollars to do this! This is a tremendous incentive for them to continue in this barbaric behaviour!

If you want to help those companies earn a legitimate living you need to refuse these “Vaccines”!

By the way, Pfizer makes a big deal of the fact that they didn’t use fetal cell lines to develop their vaccine, but they did use fetal cell lines to test the efficacy of their “vaccine”! In my mind it makes no difference; their product is still tainted!

As one article said, “parties to a murder cannot ethically donate the body of their victim to science”!

Here is a video about another side of the current issue. For me the fetal cell line issue is the overriding concern that I can’t get past, but here are some more concerns;

Covid and the attack on our freedoms

Hello friends, I have been wondering, and praying about what to write about, or to do another video. It seems people are more interested in video presentations.

While I am convinced that the current Covid-19 insanity is a “birth pang” of the End Times events, I am overwhelmed by all the theories about the origins of the “virus”, and even if it really exists or not!

One thing is for certain, governments around the world are using this “pandemic” as an excuse to take away our freedoms! It is unfortunate that most people don’t value the freedoms they were born with!

I am also very concerned with the Canadian Liberal’s Bill C-10 that aims to introduce government censorship on the Internet! Along with this they also intend to re-define words, such as “hate”; Now you will be defined as a “hater” if you criticize someone!

I am going to have to edit some of the articles on this blog, if I want to avoid an encounter with the PC police!

In the mean time, here is a video I found interesting, about the parallels between the current persecution of Christians in Canada, and in Communist China!

The Importance of Zephaniah 2

Zephaniah 2:1-3 is an important Scripture passage. This passage changed the way I looked at the End Times Prophecies in the bible!

Once I understood this passage it opened my eyes to the chronological order of the bible’s End Times passages. Things are a little different than what I was taught, but it makes more sense now!

I chose this passage for my second video, because it is so very important, and foundational, to my views on the End Times.

My Response to Andy Woods Errors on 2 Thessalonians 2

This is my first attempt at doing a video, so please be understanding! I recently saw Andy Woods’ video where he attempts to say that the word “apostasia” in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 can (should) be translated as a physical departure. This is a serious error, and is mishandling of the Word of God. I felt that since the error was published as a video, I should respond with a video. This was my fourth attempt! Hopefully I have been clear enough, to show that he is in error, and that the plain-sense interpretation is always the best!

Andy Woods and other prophecy teachers make a serious error when interpreting 2 Thessalonians 2:3

An Open Letter to JD Farag

I was watching J.D. Farag the other day and he read from 2 Thessalonians 2:3, from the Geneva Bible, and I noted that they translated the word “apostasia” as departing. He didn’t comment on the passage, but I noted that this translation is a little ambiguous and could be taken as “a departing from this world” instead of “a departing from the faith”, which is what the original meant!

Since my last post about Servus Christi’s attack on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture, and the fact that he singled out J.D. Farag for this very reason, I thought that my readers would find this letter of some value, and it certainly is apropos to both Josh Chavez’ video and J.D. Farag’s!

After all, the things the Spirit shows us aren’t for us alone, but for the edification of the whole body of Christ. I was a little rushed when I wrote this, so I have added comments in (parenthesis) to make the meaning clearer.

J.D. Farag’s video can be found at and the part I am referring to is found at the 11:50 point in the video.

Here is my letter:

“(Dear) JD, I was a little disturbed by your reading of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 from the Geneva bible, the other day, especially their use of the word “departing” in place of the phrase “falling away”. It looked like you are playing with the error that this is saying that “before our gathering together unto Jesus in the Rapture, there will be a departure, in the Rapture from this earth first”.

(I know you said that “that day” is referring to the Tribulation, but Paul makes it clear in verse 1 that “that day” is “our gathering together unto Him” which is very clearly the Rapture!)

If ever there was a reason to look to the Greek this is it! The word in question is αποστασια which is transliterated as “apostasia” and is the root of our modern English word Apostasy! Thayer’s defines it as 1. a falling away, defection, apostasy. And, Strong’s defines it as: Feminine of the same as G647; defection from truth [properly the state],[“apostasy”], – falling away, forsake.

By the way G647 is “Apostasion” which means 1. divorce, repudiation 2. a bill of divorce… just for interest’s sake!

(In many ancient cultures women were considered property, without any rights, so in those cultures a woman could not divorce her husband, but they couldn’t stop her from walking away from him! I think this is the difference between apostasion [m] and apostasia [f]. Essentially most of the modern church, who should be the bride of Christ, is walking-away from Him!)

The Geneva bible is correct that this is a “departing from the faith” but the use of the word “departing” could imply “a departure from this world”! This is not what is in view here, and I know some prophecy “scholars” think it is, but they are (seriously) mistaken!

To read it this (your) way, it would sound like this: “concerning the rapture of the Church, and our gathering together unto Him; first must come the Rapture…”! This makes NO SENSE!

No, we are in the midst of a major falling away from the true faith, even as I write to you!

I am saying this as a (Dispensational) Pre-Trib Rapturist, and a friend!

When I started studying prophecy on my own, several years ago, this passage was one of the first things I noticed. What I noticed is that many dispensationalists focus on verses 5-8 because it teaches a pre-Tribulation Rapture, but they ignore verses 1-4!

I also noticed that many from the other camps, such as Amillennialists, ignore verses 5-8 and focus on verses 1-4, because they think it teaches that the Church will go through the Tribulation! Nothing could be further from the truth! (just because you might know who the Antichrist is does not mean you will go through the Great Tribulation!)

Here’s what I think this is saying; There are 2 revealings of the Antichrist; one before the Rapture, and another after the Rapture! These two different revealings are to two different groups of people! The first group is blood-bought-born-again-believers, who are indwelt by the Holy Spirit! This goes along with Amos 3:7 ” Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”

The second group is those who will be saved during the Tribulation, after the Rapture! They will see the sign of the Antichrist renewing a peace deal between the nations of the Gog and Magog war, and Israel! This is not his own peace deal, but a copy of the one which will have been put in place after the Psalm 83 war!

Certainly the Lord put much more in His word than most Christians suspect, but who is in the seat of the prophets today? There are no biblical prophets today, but in their place is the Born-Again Church of the Living God! (Among these are those who have been given the gift of prophecy) These will know who the Antichrist is, shortly before the Rapture, and the reason is that they will attempt to warn the world! Most professing Christians will say “you’re crazy! He’s a man of God!” and I can tell you that no professing Christian who identifies the Antichrist as a man of God will be going in the Rapture! [Unless he repents first!]

There are signs given in the Word, about the End Times, and even who the Antichrist is, but most professing Christians will miss them because they are too much influenced by this world! Too much influenced by western culture, which itself is too heavily influenced by the Roman Church! When the Reformers left Rome they should have left everything Roman behind them, but like Rachel, when she left her father, who took one of his idols with her, the Protestants clung to too much of Rome, for their own (detriment)!

So, now, dear brother, please go and read 2 Thes. 2:1-8 with this in mind, and see if what I am saying makes some sense?

God Bless,

Dan Knezacek”

The whole passage should always be read together, and it reads as follows:

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 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;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 2 Thes.2:1-4

Really the rest of the chapter, especially verses 5-8 should be read at the same time, but I will let you read it on your own!

The “day of Christ” not only includes the Tribulation, but also the Rapture of the Bride! How you will view the “day of Christ” depends on where you are; for those on earth it will be the worst time in the history of the planet, Hell on earth, but for those in Heaven it will be the best time they have ever experienced!

If I could sum up what I am saying it is this, I believe that 1 Thess. 2:3 is saying “let no man deceive you by any means, for the day of our gathering together unto Jesus will not occur until the great falling away occurs, and the Antichrist will be revealed, the son of perdition”. The next 4 verses say that the Antichrist will be revealed when “he who hindereth”, the Holy Spirit indwelt Church, is taken out of the way”!

This is not a contradiction! The Antichrist will be revealed to two different groups of people at two different times; the first is the true Church, before the Rapture, and before he has power to harm them, and the second is to the Tribulation saints, after the Rapture!

Why would the Holy Spirit show the true Church who the Beast is before the Rapture? So they have a chance to warn the world! They won’t believe you when you tell them, and they might persecute you for what you are saying, but some of them will understand after the Rapture!

Are you looking for signs of imminent Rapture? The first revealing of the Antichrist is one of them, and the current apostasy in professing Christendom is another! A couple of other signs are the Psalm 83 war, and following it, the Gog and Magog war of Ezekiel 38-39! When you see all of these things, look up, for your redemption draweth nigh!
