Antichrist and Tribulation are coming. Get ready.

Where The Antichrist Comes From, Part I

| 55 Comments

Does the Bible say where the Antichrist comes from?

I know that this question sounds strange, but the prophet Daniel speaks about the Last Days. And, he talks about a ‘man of fierce countenance’.

Do you remember what he said?

He’s in Daniel 8, and he’s also referred to as a ‘little horn’. The question is whether this is the Antichrist, or whether it is Antiochus IV Epiphanes.

This is a pretty important discussion, and you need to think about this. If ‘the Little Horn’ is NOT Antiochus Epiphanes, then this is the Antichrist. And, it really sounds like the Antichrist.

Where the Antichrist Comes From, Part I

I’m labeling this as ‘Part I’, since I really want to lay this out as more of a question before getting into this issue.

The purpose of Daniel 8 is to foretell the coming of a person who will rise out of the four kingdoms that grew out of Alexander the Great’s Empire. Joel Richardson (not Rosenberg) disagrees that that Daniel 8 refers to Alexander’s Empire, so feel free to make that argument. But, you need to understand that Joel Rosenberg didn’t make sense when he tried to argue his case.

Did I miss something?

It’s possible. But, Joel certainly didn’t argue his position very well.

Of course, we like Joel. He’s a great guy, and he’s one of the few men that hasn’t gone completely off the rails, when it comes to eschatology.

What is Joel’s position?

That none of Daniel 8 has happened yet… that it’s all in the future.

Feel free to argue that position, but please make sense if you try.

For the rest of you, you will either need to make a strong case for Antiochus IV Epiphanes, or the Antichrist. And yes, I invite all of you to make these cases.

So, let me summarize what I’m asking:

1. Joel Rosenberg Richardson is right, and nothing in Daniel 8 has happened yet. [sorry, my mistake – JL]

2. Antiochus IV Epiphanes was the Little Horn and the Man of Fierce countenance

3. This is about the Antichrist.

Please note, that if the third point is true, think about what that implies.

Okay, now off to the research for this week.

(Sorry to make such short shrift.)

IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE…

Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.

And yes, these are pretty serious.

Amos 3:2 KJV – You only have I known of all the – Bible Gateway

As I was doing my daily Bible reading, I saw this verse, on Sunday. And, it goes like this:

You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.

– Amos 3:2

The sister to that verse is this one:

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

– 1 Peter 4:17

God expects us to be righteous. It is literally the least that we can do. God expects us to turn AWAY from our evil deeds. God expects our pastors to actually preach the truth. God expects the members of His church to encourage each other to repent of their sins and embrace the path of righteousness. God expects us to submit to the words of the Bible, instead of twisting it and adding to it. And, these are not harsh expectations.

False religion is heavy, but the only True Religion places the lightest burden upon us. When Jesus said that His yoke was easy and His burden light… He wasn’t kidding.

I have travelled the world and seen false religion at work under many colors and guises, and it is such a horrible burden. Yet, we take this light burden that Christ gave us, and defiled it.

Why did we do this?

Why have we blasphemed the name of God, by acting exactly like the unsaved world?

I am outraged at the evil within our churches. I can hardly contain myself. The North American and European church could have been blessed in the midst of these Last Days, but they have chosen judgment. And, it didn’t need to be this way.

It’s as if the churches of the ‘Developed World’ saw the path of corruption that destroyed Israel and Judah, and thought that this was a good idea. And, just as God turned Israel and Judah over to Satan, to be destroyed, so will God turn our churches over to Satan, to be destroyed.

It’s what God told the church at Corinth, through Paul, to do to the man engaged in horrifying fornication. Well, our churches are engaged in horrifying fornication.

Do you think that God will do any less to us?

But, God does not leave us without a recipe, for such a time as this:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

– 2 Chronicles 7:14

If you call yourself a Christian… if you are a follower of Jesus Christ …you have been called by the name of God. So, it’s time to follow this verse, this description of repentance. It is time to stop our blasphemy. It’s time to love one another and turn back to righteousness. It’s time to demonstrate to a lost and broken world, who Jesus really is.

Life is short.

Eternity long.

Choose well.

Women more unhappy than men until they reach mid-80s | News | The Times & The Sunday Times

I’m afraid that this makes a lot of sense. In my own attempts to help those who struggle, the vast majority of those people have been women. Of course, a lot of men resist getting help for their suffering, so these statistics tend to be skewed.

But, these stats also make sense, for two reasons, and I’ll deal with the smallest reason, first.

2nd Reason: How God Made Women.

The hormonal changes that a woman must go through, to give birth and then nurture a child, are gigantic. And, everything about a woman seems to be geared towards conceiving, bearing and raising children. You’d have to be blind not to see this. But, the cost of that is so very high.

Take myself, for instance. My immune system has completely and utterly destroyed my thyroid. It’s called Hashimoto’s Disease, which went undiagnosed for way too long. And now, my thyroid is gone. This leaves me without the four hormones produced by the thyroid, and it has done incredible damage – especially, in the area of depression.

And, even a small change in hormones can leave you horribly depressed.

So, to all you women out there, I’m really, Really, REALLY sorry. And, I feel your pain. Quite literally, in at least one sense.

Now, there’s another side to this. And, I believe that this study is blind to that.

1st And Biggest Reason: Our Evil Society

Our modern society is anti-Motherhood. God built women to be mothers. And, we aren’t letting them do what they were made for. Instead, we are demanding that they seek ‘self-actualization’. We demand that they get a ‘career’ and ‘hold off’ on having kids. We demand that women look at children as a nuisance and not a gift from God. We demand that they have oversized mammaries and undersized waists. We demand that they have sex before marriage. We demand that women have multiple sexual partners. And, we demand that women remove any respect that they might have had for men.

THAT is going to make women MISERABLE.

And, we have a society that preys upon the miserable.

THE HEARTLESS CHURCH

We also have churches that prey upon those who suffer. Since I’m big and have a strong personality, most ‘christians’ won’t attack me for suffering depression. (Or at least, they don’t do it twice.) But, women are easy to attack, and lots and lots of churches do that. In fact, I believe that this describes most churches in the ‘developed’ world.

I recently received an email from someone who had suffered greatly at the hands of false christians. The churches that she attended would regularly attack her for suffering depression. And, I have seen it happen, time after time after time after time. And, it broke my heart to read her email. Here was another victim of heartless churches. And, I am sickened by this. I am outraged.

Those of you who are puzzled by my anger at the American Church – and the European Church – need to understand that this is part of it. Our churches have become heartless. Our love has become Arctic cold. And, God is angry at our stony hearts.

And, if God is angry, then I believe that we should be angry, too.

I wasn’t expecting to write all that, when I started to make my comment on this link. Please, if you church has turned cold and heartless, do your best to warn them of God’s judgment that is coming for them. God is angry at these churches, and their time of judgment is about to arrive.

And, it may even be too late.

Dragons, Deception and Depression |

This is the article that I wrote, that I referenced above.

KM wrote to me, to thank me for writing it. It helped encourage her, in her own suffering. Luckily, she has reached this point in her life, where she sees the hand of God in the midst of her trial.

But, I am appalled at the evil done to her by the churches that she has attended. Instead of finding comfort, she experienced disdain. Instead of help, she received attack.

What did Jesus say about how the world would know that we are His disciples?

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

– John 13:35

By this alone, I see that most churches are as dead as doornails. By this rule, it is clear that the vast majority of churches are not the sheep of our Shepherd. Instead, they are wolves.

And, since I mention that, let me point out that wolves and sheep share many similarities. They both are highly social and live/work as a group. They both have social hierarchies. They both defend their young and their elderly – if they can.

The key difference between wolves and sheep, are this:

Sheep eat grass.

Wolves eat sheep.

So, if you are a sheep in a church of wolves, they might seem like sheep to you, but they aren’t. And, they will consume you.

Oh, and those of you who preach armed resistance to government?

You are proving that you are wolves. Only a wolf is capable and willing to engage in an armed revolt against their government. And yes, I include the wolves that led churches into fighting the American Revolution.

And, I am tired of having people try to tell me that those wolves were good Christians. They were not, and we see the results of their handiwork, today.

To those of you who are undecided, think about this for a moment:

Have you noticed the religion that has its largest cathedral in Washington D.C.?

Have you noticed who runs the most prestigious university in the Washington DC area?

Have you noticed the one sect that would have stood to gain the most from a Protestant Empire losing an important colony?

Do you know the one religious group that has been tasked with the weakening and destruction of all non-Catholic Christians?

That’s right.

The Jesuits.

Tell me again how wonderful the American Revolution was?

How these churches brought millennials back to worship | The Kansas City Star

The day after I wrote the comment about Amos 3:2, I see this.

These churches took out ‘the rules’. They said that this ‘righteousness thing’ is not for us. They said that they didn’t need any restrictions. No boundaries.

Purity is just soooo ‘last century’.

Now they have a Jesus that doesn’t need them to repent. They have a Jesus that doesn’t need you to wait for marriage, before having sex. They have a Jesus that loves rock and roll. They have a Jesus that’s cool. They have a Jesus that can be Mormon or Muslim or Catholic or Hindu. They have a Jesus that encourages you to do whatever you want.

Does that sound like YOUR Jesus?

If it does, you have a problem. An eternal problem. If that’s your Jesus, then you will spend an eternity in Hell, in the life to come. If that’s your Jesus, you will be one of those who will follow the Antichrist.

This is blasphemy of the worst kind. It looks good to the simple-minded, but it is evil to the core.

Judgment is coming, kids.

Are you ready for the Wrath of God?

Humans will happily worship a robot messiah, experts claim | Daily Mail Online

Gibby shared this with in the comment section. And, I’m afraid that the title of this piece is right. However, I’m not COMPLETELY sure how this will conform to the words of Jesus:

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

– Matthew 24:24

BUT, this certainly would be a precursor to what the Antichrist would bring.

Oh, and there’s one big ‘fly in the ointment’:

WOTF will eventually have a gospel called ‘The Manual’, as well as rituals and even a physical place of worship.

I’ve written LOTS of manuals. Nothing will put you to sleep faster than my ‘best sellers’. No one is going to read ‘The Manual’.

Is someone trying to pull a ‘fast one’ on us?

Also, this ‘church’, Way of the Future… It’s acronym WOTF is suspiciously like WTF. Suspiciously.

Having said all that, there are LOTS of people who would be willing to worship a suitably advanced AI. We’ve worshipped lumps of rock for thousands of years, so it’s realistic to assume that people will worship some form of computer, in the future.

Thanks, Gibby!

New Religion In California Will Worship Man Made ‘Messiah’

Mike from Idaho sent this in, and it’s a good summary. But, it’s the Wired Magazine link in this article that’s the REALLY big deal…

Inside Artificial Intelligence’s First Church | WIRED

Here’s that Wired Magazine Link.

This is absolutely horrifying, and the guy launching this looks like a creep. Sorry, but that first picture makes me think of limp handshakes, pedophiles and Satanic rituals. He might not be like that, but that’s my feeling from the picture. But, the articles is much, much bigger than that.

For years, decades actually, science fiction has been speculating on a global computer system that will help manage everyone’s life, in a benign way. Some of that sci-fi is dystopian and speaks of such a global network used for evil, instead of good.

The irony, is that I do not recall any science fiction attempting to create a god out of a computer, at least… not as a main plot element. Although, I dimly recall plot elements that include groups of people who worship ‘The Great Programmer’. But, those groups were never treated with any kind of sympathy by SF writers.

The problem is that our society is well along in her open rebellion towards God. And, humanity cannot go long without belief in SOMETHING. We are hardwired to believe in God, so humanity ‘must’ come up with a convincing simulacrum, if this rebellion is going to last.

Unfortunately, for them, rebellions against God are never successful. Never.

Nor does the Bible describe the kind of faux diety described here. I’m going to look again at what Jesus said, here:

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

– Matthew 24:24

Again, it’s hard to believe that Christians would be tempted even a little, into worshipping a computer. Of course, Mark 13:22 uses the word ‘seduce’.

And, the idea in both Matthew and Mark is that this ‘Beast’ will be so incredible… so persuasive… so realistic… that you’ll wonder for a split second, whether it’s true.

Please understand that EVERYONE will believe in this ‘Beast’. EVERYONE… except one tiny group of people that call themselves Christians. In fact, most of those who call themselves Christians, will worship the Beast. Only the ‘very elect’ will not.

My own estimate is that maybe 10% of Christians are in that ‘very elect’ category. I hope that I’m wrong, but my personal experience indicates that very few of those who call themselves Christian, are actually saved – another way of saying, ‘the very elect’.

Of course, I’m not the Judge of who is saved, and who isn’t. But, Jesus spoke of those who would cry ‘Lord, Lord’, with His response being:

“I never knew you.”

So, if you don’t like my estimate of how many Christians are truly saved, you might need to take that up with God and the Bible. I’m not the one that you need to convince.

The bottom line is that people like this Levandowski moron will build computer networks with enough intelligence that they will seem more and more like friends. We will rely on them more and more.

And, their powers will eventually seem to be almost god-like.

In fact, place yourself in the position of someone 200 years ago….

What would their reaction be to the Internet?

If they were Christian, their reaction would be a mixture of fascination and horror. Those who weren’t Christian might initially be disgusted with the pornography, but they would eventually embrace it.

And, the idea of a nice, caring older brother or parent-surrogate, helping you out in your daily life… sounds good, right?

We’ll see what happens.

Thanks again, Mike. Excellent contribution.

A Gold Guys View of Crypto, Bitcoin, and Blockchain

If you want to see the rise of the Beast System, controlled by the Antichrist, this is it:

Imagine a world where a teenage girl in India can start a business, sell her wares or services, and then through her phone, internet, and crypto-currency store the fruit of her labor. She can then buy an item on Amazon and have it shipped to her half-way around the world without ever having to open a bank account. This is the future that crypto-currency promises.

And, here is the path that Bitcoin is laying towards that Beast System:

Cryptocurrency, as a bubble, is serving an incredibly rare and important purpose. For the first time in over a hundred years, there is now a discussion going on with average people about what money really is, and what we want it to be. It is causing people to examine our financial system in ways that people normally never would. The typical person carries on each day with nary a thought to how our monetary system is constructed. If you were to ask 1000 random people if they knew when the Federal Reserve System was created, who owns it, and what it really does I would be surprised if one in a thousand could tell you.

People forget that the Beast System will require public acceptance for it to happen. People will WANT the Beast System. It will benefit them. It will – especially at first – be thought of as a good thing. In fact, it will probably be ALWAYS thought of as a good thing. Even when The Mark is introduced.

My hope is that you will understand this important point. It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that everyone is like you. If you are a true Christian, very few people are like yourself. You will reject the Beast, but every non-Christian on the planet will think that he’s awesome.

O’ Death, Where is Your Sting? – YouTube

This will break your heart and bless you life. This is the testimony of parents who loved the Lord more than their precious daughter. And, this little girl loved the Lord as well. And, tears were running down my face, when this was over.

My heart aches for these parents, but their love of Christ shines so brightly. They gave their little girl to the Lord, and the Lord took her home. And, their loss did not destroy them.

I can’t imagine the cost, and this precious little girl…

What a testimony.

“You Grow Up Wanting To Be Luke Skywalker, Then Realize You’ve Become A Stormtrooper For The Empire” | Zero Hedge

The good thing is that I didn’t need to lead a fire team, become a company commander or go to Iraq to see this. But, I probably would have, if God hadn’t pointed my attention elsewhere. It really was that close of a ‘thing’.

Unfortunately, a brother wasn’t so lucky, and I blame myself a little bit for that. It was my interest in military strategy that put him in the ROTC in college. He found a home there, but the cost was incredible.

Our soldiers have become stormtroopers. And, I am so desperately sorry. I really am.

We are taking these young men and women, griding them up and then spitting them out onto the streets of America. Yes, they chose to serve the Empire. But, we were the ones to convince them. We were the ones that wrapped their impressionable minds around visions of glory.

We did this.

And, I wish that we could undo it.

Those of you who do not understand war, will never understand why I am so ashamed of my country. And, I see this lack of understanding, every time some moron talks about armed revolution.

If you knew what it takes to fight engage in a successful insurrection against your government, you would shut up. Very few people have any idea what war is like. Very few.

I mourn for the shattered lives. I mourn for the lost goodness of America. I mourn for the evil that the US has done.

And, I am ashamed of my country.

Here is the second music video shared by Jennifer. And, it raises a question.

But, it’s still singing.

So, let me ask you this:

Arizona Cop Acquitted for Killing Man Crawling Down Hotel Hallway While Begging for His Life – Hit & Run : Reason.com

The officer who was acquitted, deserves a firing squad.

This is murder, and the officer was prepared to murder. He wanted to murder. He did not want to follow sound procedures that would have kept him from pulling the trigger. This whole incident, from start to finish, was a foregone conclusion.

And, the murderer who did this, needs to be executed for it.

When a police officer engages in murder, it’s also treason.

Former Facebook exec: Social media is ripping apart society

Here are his main points:

That he feels “tremendous guilt” about Facebook. “I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.”

“The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created [including the hearts, likes, and thumbs up of various social media channels] are destroying how society works.” He added, “[There’s] no civil discourse, no cooperation; [only] misinformation, mistruth. And it’s not an American problem–this is not about Russians ads. This is a global problem.”

Regarding an incident in which seven innocent men in India were lynched after a hoax about kidnappings spread through WhatsApp: “That’s what we’re dealing with. And imagine taking that to the extreme, where bad actors can now manipulate large swathes of people to do anything you want. It’s just a really, really bad state of affairs.”

Unsurprisingly, when it comes to social media, his children “aren’t allowed to use that shit.”

You’ll find a link to the YouTube video, in the article.

I haven’t watched that YouTube video, but those selected comments are illuminating. It’s as if we are using social media to destroy our love for each other. And, it has given a platform for people to express their hatred and despicable evil… with impunity.

In fact, I believe that it’s treason.

Russia Sharply Expanding Nuclear Arsenal, Upgrading Underground Facilities

And, the reason why we should believe this is…

With all the lies that we have been told by the media, the CIA, the State Department and the Pentagon, I struggle to believe ANYTHING that they say, including this.

What I’m curious about is WHEN they tell us the truth, and how we’re supposed to know that it’s the truth.

Could they please give us a hint, so that we can know what to believe?

Of course, this report is logical, because it’s what I would do, if I were Putin. So, I trust this a bit more than others.

Are you tired of all the lies?

I certainly am.

Right Angle – Is There A Moral Obligation? – 12/13/17 – YouTube

This is where I set aside my call for standing down from war.

There are good and just reasons for killing people. Defending yourself is one ‘good and just reason’. Defending others, is another. And yes, I believe that there is a moral obligation to protect people, when you can, where you can.

In terms of North Korea, it means killing the entire leadership of North Korea, in one blow, if possible. And, as for all that artillery pointed at Seoul, it shouldn’t be THAT hard to find them all ahead of time and knock ’em out.

We can do it, if we really wanted to. But, I don’t believe that we really want to – at least, those who are in leadership.

The Norks have been useful to certain Americans, Russians and Chinese. It is sickening to think that, but I believe it to be true. So, the horrifying deathcamps of North Korea will continue. Because we want them to continue.

We knew about this.

And, we let it happen.

The Palestinians cause trouble everywhere they go, and this is a prime example.

Does America want a Palestinian running a country in Central America?

Me neither.

Don’t argue with the Devil – he’s much more intelligent than us, says Pope Francis

Isn’t it fascinating that Pope Franky has such a PERSONAL knowledge of Satan?

He talks like he has had lots of personal interaction with the Prince of Darkness. I would be suspicious of people like that. Of course, I’m already suspicious of Jesuits and popes, already. But, Franky’s rhetoric deepens my distrust.

Is Christmas a Religious Holiday? A Growing Number of Americans Say No – The New York Times

Here is the key part of this article:

The Bible story

The most seismic change captured by the survey, from a theological standpoint, may be the declining number of people who said they believed the biblical story of Christmas accurately reflected historical events.

The survey asked respondents about their belief in four parts of the biblical Christmas story: that an angel heralded the birth of Jesus; that it was a virgin birth; that wise men were guided to baby Jesus by a star; and that he was placed in a manger.

Only 57 percent of Americans believe in all four, down from 65 percent in 2014. There were two factors that contributed to the trend, researchers said. One was that atheists and the religiously unaffiliated appeared even less likely now than in the past to believe the story of Jesus’ birth. The second was “a small but significant decline” of roughly 5 percent “in the share of Christians who believe in the Christmas narrative contained in the Bible.”

The bigger question in my mind is not about belief. Belief isn’t enough. The demons believe.

The question is whether you (or they) submit themselves to this knowledge and follow God. I’m betting that a far greater decline has occured than just a fall in the number of those claiming to believe.

I hope that you understand this point. It’s vital.

Faith is more than mere belief. Faith is submission to the one that you believe in. Faith is an application of knowledge. Faith is giving your heart and your life to the One who died for you.

Belief is never enough.

The History of the Evangelical Churches in the Valleys of Piemont – Samuel Morland – Google Books

I was saved in a Landmark Sovereign Grace Baptist Church. I was six. And, it means that I was baptized by someone who was baptized by someone who was baptized by someone who was baptized by someone who… all the way back to John the Baptist. I have since come to realize that this ‘geneology’ isn’t necessary.

We were never asked to keep such ‘geneologies’, and Paul even seems to speak against it. But, there is some value in it, since it shows that the church has existed, down the centuries, without break, and without having had to detour through the Roman Whore, the Catholic Church. And yes, we have records.

This link represents one of many records that escaped the attempt by the Catholics to destroy any and all evidence of our existence. They were thorough, but not thorough enough.

I mention this, because I ran across a mention of how good the Swiss were in preparation for civilizational collapse. I believe that their resilience is a part of the blessing that God has given them for sheltering the Christians fleeing the Catholic terror.

This book describes those Christians and their history. And, it describes what the Swiss did, to save Christian lives.

So, those Catholics who hold the Roman Whore close because they believe that there is no other that has persisted down the generations, read this.

Ann Barnhardt believes that she must stay Catholic because no one else has the annointing passed down from church to church. If you are like Ann, then you need to read this book and books like it. It will free you from Catholic bondage.

If you are a Landmark Baptist, like I was… well …think about what the Bible actually says about that. And then, ask yourself if your church is living up to the requirements of Jesus Christ, for His church.

If your church is like most Landmark Baptist Churches, it is full of Pharisees, which is why I can honestly echo Paul by describing myself as a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee.

Please cast off the works of darkness and embrace the Truth.

Bid to Outlaw Gay Sex, Adultery Fails in World’s Largest Muslim-Majority Nation – WSJ

This is a surprise.

So, Indonesia really is pretty moderate. And, we’ve seen lots of them here in Taiwan, since the Philippinese still hasn’t apologized and compensated the families of Taiwanese fishermen who were murdered by the Philippine Navy.

Until the Philippine government chooses to do the right thing, there will be fewer and fewer Filipinos here in Taiwan, and more Indonesians.

I’m not happy about this, since I love the Filipinos. They are awesome people, but their government…

We have an Indonesian family in our church. Hopefully, this is a sign that they might have some breathing room, when they go back to Indonesia. There will always be persecution of Christians in Indonesia, but maybe it will slow a bit.

Having said that, I am actually FOR the outlaw of gay sex and sex outside of marriage. So, don’t get me wrong on this.

TD Canada Trust backs down, releases family’s $846K inheritance – Toronto – CBC News

This is absolutely revolting in the extreme. The dirtbags at a Canada bank sent a bank draft via UPS. UPS loses the draft, and doesn’t want to admit that they were wrong. Then, the dirtbag bank refuses to reissue the bank draft.

It was only when this was revealed to the public, via national media, that the dirtbags decided to reissue the bank draft. Within hours.

I truly wish that God would give me permission to bash heads. I really do. But, God doesn’t hand out such permission, so we’re stuck.

May God give these dirtbags the ability to repent and fix all the evil that they have done. Otherwise, I want God to destroy them, utterly, for their foul and vile evil.

To harm those who cannot defend themselves, is an abomination.

CORRUPTION AND THE MILITARY TAKEOVER TO SOLVE IT

What is going on with Hillary and the corruption being revealed in Washington, is so huge… that I doubt that it is possible to emphasize enough, the seriousness of this situation. I believe that these revelations will eventually take down the Republic and replace the current government with one ruled by the generals. And please, do not discount this. Corruption is ALWAYS how republics and kingdoms fall – and how the military takes over.

Remember the generals that surround Trump.

This was not an accident.

However, please take note that public pressure for a military takeover never happens until people suffer economic and financial stress. So, don’t expect this ‘takeover’ to happen until the economy turns sharply downward. The military will not want to see a repeat of the French Revolution.

One good thing about this corrupt Russian narrative is that you can tell who deserves to be jailed – or executed – for treason. In this case, it’s David Cameron, so we would need to have the British take care of this traitor to THEIR country.

As for America, there are plenty of people who continue to ‘double down’ on this fake and fraudulent idea. And, they prove that they are engaged in treason.

Trey Gowdy “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?” Gowdy GRILLS Rod Rosenstein, Clinton Email, Russia Probe – YouTube

Trey Gowdy goes through the evidence implicating Mueller in gross misconduct and – I believe – treason. It is a hard-hitting thoroughly incriminating indictment of Rod Resenstein, and then that creep, Rosenstein, dared to promise that they will take appropriate action whenever they see something wrong.

I was going to put this link in the ‘Truth About Trump’ category, but this is evidence of pure treason. And, this treason will bring a military takeover.

I doubt that the creeps like Rosenstein understand this, but it’s the absolute truth. And, it will destroy what is left of America.

How dare Rosenstein do this!

An even better start would be executing them for treason.

Jihad Festering in America

Normally, I would put an article like this in the Matthew 24:7 section, since the result will be civil war between ethnic and political groups in the US. But, this is far, far more than that.

This is treason. Here are the three paragraphs that indict the traitors:

According to a 2016 working paper produced by the National Bureau of Economic Research, Saudi Arabia is the second-largest source of ISIS fighters from Muslim-majority countries, with an estimated 2,500. If the IGA report is accurate, a whopping 16% of these fighters were in the U.S. when they joined ISIS.

An equally disturbing finding of the report is that the Saudi government, which has been monitoring its nationals in the U.S., is fully aware that many of their own citizens are joining ISIS and not only has done little to stop them, but has kept information about the subject from American authorities.

This finding completely contradicts the 2014 State Department assertion that “Saudi Arabia has continued to cooperate with the United States to prevent acts of terrorism … through information exchange agreements with the United States.”

I’m sorry, but the US Dept. of State KNEW about all this. The CIA KNEW about all this. The FBI KNEW about all this. Just as the Saudi Government KNEW about all this.

Instead of going off to fight ISIS in Iraq and Syria, American soldiers should have stayed home and fought ISIS in the US State Department and the CIA.

ISIS is in America, and it is a part of the treason at the highest levels of the American government. And, that treason will bring in the military.

Unfortunately, very little will change when that happens, although we will all cheer on the tribunals that will execute the corrupt. I am truly sickened by all this. I really am.

The Enemy Within – Antiwar.com Original

Here is the key paragraph and conclusion:

We are facing a mortal threat to our republic, to our liberties, and to the future of democracy in America, and it’s not coming from overseas. The danger is coming from within our own government – the permanent national security bureaucracy, which was never elected by anyone to anything, and is now determined to impose its will on a country that voted the “wrong” way.

Absolutely correct in every way. The ‘intelligence community’ is actively fighting against America and Americans. This includes the State Department. And, they are chopping away at what remains of America’s foundations.

But, when I looked at the top of this page, under ‘Highlights’ and the ‘Scott Horton Show’, I saw the most extreme kind of irony. Their ‘headlines’ were universally condemning Trump for acknowledging Jerusalem and Israel for existing. It was horribly anti-Israel and horribly anti-Semitic.

How was this ironic?

The very same people that this article condemns as traitors to the US, are the same people that are attempting to stop the US from recognizing Jerusalem! This article condemns the traitors, yet praises their attacks on Israel!

How can a website like this be so stupid?

If you are against Israel, you are siding with those who have betrayed America in the worst possible way!

How utterly ironic.

Text Proves Anti Trump Conspiracy Within the FBI , 1942 – YouTube

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Rosenstein is lying through his teeth.

The entire leadership of the FBI have chosen to betray their government, their oath and the people of the United States. To undermine the process of selecting the President of the United States is pure treason. To attack the President, while he is in office, to use the FBI for the purpose of destroying the President, is pure treason. To aid and abet the commission of crimes by Hillary Clinton, is pure treason.

I say again, the FBI is out of control. And, it’s time to bring them back under control.

The only question is how.

How do you bring under control, the top police organization in the country?

How do you do that?

TRUTH ABOUT TRUMP

Right now, Trump is a distraction. Some call him savior. Others call him devil. And YOU are probably being distracted by all this.

Please don’t be. Trump is just a guy who wanted political power, and got it. He likes winning, and he won. He still likes winning, and he will try to keep doing so. He’s also smart, which means that he will probably succeed – at least, some of the time. But, he isn’t going to save America. He isn’t going to chart a new course. He isn’t going to make America great again. And, it’s becoming more and more clear that he has been lying to us.

The best that he will do, is not be as bad as the alternative. But, I’m afraid that he will be AS BAD as the alternative. He certainly looks like he’s selling Israel out.

Please get this into your head:

AMERICA IS LOST.

The sooner that you get this point, the better.

Those of you living outside of America already see this, and YOUR concern is the fallout from America’s fall. The only thing that I can point to, for you… is the Bible and Ezekiel’s Fire.

Veteran Disney Executive Arrested On Child Sex Abuse Charges | Zero Hedge

Michael shared this in the comment section, from last week.

Disney has had child rapists in their midst since their beginning. In fact, I’ve been wondering if Walt wasn’t one, himself.

The other thing that I believe to be connected with this, is the MKULTRA program run by the CIA. Victims that have spoken out, say that Disney was a part of the program. And, raping young children was at the very center of MKULTRA.

Unfortunately for these foul fiends from Hell, they can never have enough, and when they get too used to not being caught… they think that they’ll never get caught.

And then… And then there’s the most awful message of all. This foul fiend from Hell has the following in his Twitter bio:

“Disney Concerts and living to glorify God in all things.”

If this guy is guilty, I pray that he repents and seeks to undo the evil that he’s done, by being extremely public about all that he’s done and all that Disney has been doing. But, I strongly doubt that this evil man would ever humble himself like that.

So, I pray that this fake christian dies, soon.

It would have been better that a millstone had been tied about his neck and thrown into the sea.

Please, prepare for the worst.

Switzerland is Prepared for Civilizational Collapse – Marginal REVOLUTION

Whenever I read something like this, I am reminded of how the Swiss sheltered the Christians being persecuted by the Catholics. And, these Christians were recognized as predating the Catholic Church and existing throughout the sway of Catholic Church.

I believe that Switzerland is being blessed – and has been blessed – because she gave shelter to those ancient, non-Protestant Christians. It was Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of Great Britain, that interceded with the Swiss, asking them to give the Waldenses and other Christians, refuge from the horrifying massacres being perpetuated by the Catholics.

I was able to read an original copy of Samuel Moreland’s History of the Evangelical Churches of the Valleys of Piemont, printed in 1658. And, it lays out the invaluable help that the Swiss gave to these ancient Christians.

If you are a Baptist, there is a very good chance that your church descends, in some way, from these persecuted followers of Christ.

To put it another way, most Baptists are NOT Protestants, and I personally object those that name being placed upon myself. For a thousand years, the Catholics tried to stamp us out, but we survived and thrived, in spite of their genocide.

To those Catholics who tie themselves to the Roman Whore, because they believe in a need for an unbroken lineage… well …find a non-Protestant Baptist Church. THEY do not trace their lineage through the Roman Whore.

I once believed that such ‘geneology’ was necessary for a church to be a real church. But, I have since repented of this error – which might be more properly called a heresy. So, I understand why some might worry about such things, and there are ways to deal with that worry.

Sorry to go off like that, but I believe that Switzerland might be a place of refuge because of the aid they gave to those being persecuted. And, that was true, right up through World War II.

It’s certainly something to think about.

In fact, it has begun already.

When economic and financial collapse comes your way, you need something tangible to weather the storm. Right now, I cannot think of anything tangilble that is so fiercely undervalued and universally recognized as gold and silver.

This is an interesting presentation on cryptocurrencies. It appears to be accurate and fairly informative. It does NOT describe key aspects, like the cryptography used to make cryptocurrency possible. It also does not describe the low barriers to entry, for rival cryptocurrencies.

And, as I’ve said above, there is a moral hazard in investing in a scheme that requires someone to be hurt financially, for you to gain.

If you are a true Christian, and not a fake like most who claim to follow Jesus, you are required by God to be moral, ethical and be conscious of the need to not harm people by the decisions that you make. If you invest in something that requires someone to be hurt, to be worthwhile, you are going against what God is telling you to do.

Be a blessing and not a curse.

What Is a “Blockchain”?

Mike from Idaho sent this in, and it’s a good explanation of how cryptography – combined with a public and distributed leger – works. It’s a good, general description, and I recommend that you read it, even if you aren’t interested in cryptocurrency.

I actually have some background in cryptography – specifically, the PGP encryption used by Safe-mail. Before leaving Israel, I worked for Safe-mail, as the Tech writer, and some of my discussion of public key encryption, is still on their site. In fact… (searching) …here it is:

http://www.safe-mail.net/support/eng/help/protectsecure/index.html

Interesting. That was 12 years ago, and they still have it up. The only thing different is the S/MIME section.

So, if you want to know more about PKI, PKE and what underlies the encryption of the blockchain, this ‘blast from the past’ might be a place to go.

Thanks, Mike!

(Even though there WAS a general with that name.)

Although, she says that there are historical references indicating that the strategy has been used.

Mr. Little very quietly says, “Yes Dear.”

So, take these with a bit of salt.

MORONS AND MORE MORONS… WE’RE SURROUNDED BY MORONS

I’m sorry, but I can’t stand it anymore. There are just too many morons, so it needs its own category. And, I do this to maintain my own sanity. They’re driving me THAT crazy.

Now, here’s my rule for who appears in this section:

A person or organization who is EVIL ANNNND STUPID.

People who are just stupid, deserve our compassion. My heart goes out to them, because their life is going to be painful until they stop being stupid.

But, those who are evil?

Well, I want them to repent. I really do. I do NOT want ANYONE who is evil to suffer an eternity in Hell. But, if they refuse to repent, I want them destroyed.

May the wrath of God be upon all who refuse to repent. May the blessings of God be upon those who turn from their wicked ways and acknowledge God.

Of course, they reluctantly acknowledged that they were… um …’wrong’. But, they said this:

But instead of diving into the nuts and bolts of how CNN put its story together, Stelter gave a light overview of CNN’s correction before providing the boilerplate spin from CNN’s press department. And instead of interviewing guests who might provide analysis of the process of journalism and the CNN article, Stelter interviewed Bernstein and Frum, two pundits who make no secret of despising Trump.

“Look, reporters, journalists make mistakes,” said Bernstein, a paid CNN analyst and veteran of Watergate. “Our record as journalists in covering this Trump story and the Russian story is pretty good, especially compared to the record of Donald Trump and his serial lying.”

Oh wow.

Welcome to the Hell Hole that is Brussels

Here’s the summary:

Last month alone in Brussels, there were three separate outbreaks of rioting and looting on a major scale.

If you penetrate the thick cloud of professional indignation to scrutinize the reality of the “capital of Europe”, what you see in many respects is actually a hell hole, one where socialism, Islamism, riots and looting are the new normal.

I guess that there are two kinds of brussels. One is a ‘hell hole’ of unimaginable stupidity and the other is a vegetable.

KHALIFA HAFTAR – LIBYA

When I first realized that Russia was backing Khalifa Haftar in Eastern Libya, I realized that this helped me identify a big piece that I was missing in the Gog and Magog puzzle. All the other members of the Gog and Magog alliance had identified themselves and were moving into place – except for Cush.

Cush is a part of the Gog and Magog alliance, and I’m not sure whether that is Ethiopia, Sudan or another country in sub-Saharan Africa. We’ll see how Cush falls into place. But, for now, we look at Libya.

And, looking at Libya means looking at the fortunes of Khalifa Haftar.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Libya – Trump Jumps Back In

One of the reasons… if not THE reason …why Haftar is winning, is due to the nature of his opponents:

This is Serraj’s Army: paid mercenaries who are a loose coalition of militias.

Those militias, which seized power from the legitimate parliament back in 2014, are fighting amongst themselves, which is one reason why in the past twelve months they have endured a string of defeats against the eastern army of Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar.

Haftar’s Libyan National Army is bigger, better armed and trained than the militias and has been rolling them up in a series of offensives that have captured the eastern oil crescent, home to most of Libya’s oil, along with Benghazi, the eastern capital.

How long will it take for Haftar to defeat the gangs of Tripoli?

That’s hard to say, but ‘not long’ is probably the operative answer. The only organized government in Libya is Haftar. And, Haftar is friends with Russia. Deeply so.

Russia Claims Victory in Syria War, Now Moscow Has Its Eyes on Libya Crisis

Okay, you can’t trust Newsweek farther than you can throw them. But, it looks like they’re correct.

However, one thing should be clear:

The Gog and Magog coalition is building.

Airspace deal with Egypt brings Russia closer to Libya battlefield – UPI.com

And, here is how Egypt and Russia are explaining Russia’s involvement in Libya, operating from Egyptian air bases:

“It is clear the National Libyan Army cannot control the situa­tion in eastern Libya, let alone the whole country,” said retired Egyp­tian Army Maj.-Gen. Talaat Moussa. “This is why potential Rus­sian airstrikes on terrorist camps and concentration centers can prevent the terrorist threat from metastasizing in Libya and seeping into Egypt.”

Yeah.

Is terrorism, comrade.

Turkey’s Erdogan seeks to lead Muslim response on Jerusalem

The title pretty much says it all. And, make no mistake… Erdogan has always wanted to recreate the Ottoman caliphate.

The problem is that Erdogan isn’t seen as a real leader to the Muslims, and he’s looking for a cause celebre, that he can ‘rally the ouma with’. Well, good luck with that.

At the moment, Turkey’s army is something of a joke. He decapitated it by throwing Turkey’s best military leaders in jail. And now, it can’t seem to do much against the poorly equiped and outgunned Kurds.

Can the moron-in-chief get it together?

If so, then I’ll consider Turkey to be a candidate for ‘The Land of Magog’. Until then, I shall remain skeptical. He’s a moron, so I’m not about to consider him to be Gog, until he proves to have the ability.

And, morons will moron.

ISRAEL

There has been a sickening rise in anti-Semitism among those who call themselves christian. And yes, I used a lower case ‘c’ on purpose. I have little hope that I can turn these minions of Satan from their evil path. Salvation and repentance are the work of God, although I will do my best to serve God in that work.

I’m more interested in keeping my brothers and sisters from being tainted by this Satanic hatred of the Jews. If you are caught by this hatred, you will suffer. If you are convinced to oppose Israel, you will suffer. If you are turned away from supporting God’s work in the Land of Israel, you will suffer.

So, think of this category as my attempt to help you avoid the traps of Satan, that he has laid in your path. God is at work among the Jewish people and with the Jewish people. He is at work in the Land of Israel, turning the Jewish people from their idols and towards the true God of Abraham.

My goal is that you would be greatly blessed. But, you cannot be blessed, if you oppose God.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

May you prosper. And, may you understand how important the Land of Israel is, in these Last Days.

The Truth About Jerusalem – YouTube

As I write this, it’s Sunday. It’s hard to know how people are going to fan the flames of this nothingburger. But, ‘explosions of anger’ are never ‘spontaneous’ on the ‘Arab street’. There are always OTHER reasons why, and the ‘anger’ and ‘rage’ always boils over. Always. The reason of the day is usually just an excuse.

If you see the violence grow, it would have happened – and grown – for another reason. Violence is a part of Arab Muslim life. It’s what they do in the Middle East when something is annoying to them.

If you don’t ‘get that’, you’ll never understand the Middle East. Islam, and especially Arabs, are some of the most emotional and irrational people on the planet. IT. IS. WHAT.THEY. ARE.

Islam is essentially a codification of Medieval Arabic culture. It was violent then, and it’s violent now. And, moronic.

I like the Arabs. I really do.

But, they’re still morons.

Bella Hadid joins Jerusalem demonstration in London after fury at Trump embassy move

But, I’m putting this in here, even though the it doesn’t really say anything newsworty or factually accurate. It’s here for one reason only.

The pictures.

Do you notice how tight the shots are?

Yeah. They’re trying to make these demonstrations look bigger than they are. But, from the look of these shots, they don’t appear to be much. Some of them might be significant, but most don’t appear to be so.

Newspapers are so disgusting and fraudulent, that you can’t even trust their photos.

Greenfield Moment: The Reality of Jerusalem and Islamic Terror. – YouTube

Careful. This is a discussion of… gasp! …reality. Yes, yes, reality. And, Daniel Greenfield has the temerity to suggest that we actually ACCEPT reality.

The cheek!

How DARE he ask that we accept reality!

Who does he think that he is?

On a less faux note, I had the experience of having my passport renewed in Jerusalem. When the US does that, they always put down where your passport was issued – and, they include the country name. When I got my new passport, it said…

Jerusalem.

No country.

Just Jerusalem.

And, now that I mentioned that, there’s another bit of infuriating evidence of State Department antisemitism.

There are two US consulates in Jerusalem, one in West Jerusalem, and the other in East Jerusalem – across the pre-1967 border.

Wanna guess which consulate they demand that you renew your passport and obtain US citizen services?

Hey! You figured it out!

That’s right, the dirtbags at the US Dept. of State require that ALL American citizens living in Jerusalem go to the consulate in EAST Jerusalem. I have YET to figure out what the consulate in West Jerusalem is doing there. I walked past it often, yet it doesn’t seem to do anything or serve any purpose.

And people wonder why I have so much antipathy towards the US Dept. of State.

Trump’s Jerusalem declaration sparks talk of 3rd Temple

Whatever you do, do NOT ‘welcome’ talk of a 3rd Temple. And, if you give money to a movement like this, you have not only thrown it away. You’ve also given support to those who act AGAINST Christ.

Just as anyone who isn’t a Christian is antichrist, so are the Jews who have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. So, please choose wisely, when you think about where your donations should go.

Judaism, by definition, rejects Jesus. And, it is an active and emphatic rejection. And, I know this personally. We still love the Jews. We still support and defend their right to the Land of Israel. But, we should not be stupid about what Judaism is.

So please, get this right.

Judaism is pagan.

Judaism is idolatry.

Analysis: Why are prime ministerial contenders outing themselves now? – Israel News – Jerusalem Post

Well, they smell blood in the water. I’m not sure that there’s ENOUGH blood for them to succeed, but we’ll see.

Now, this article claims that Bibi doesn’t have much in the way of accomplishments, but I disagree. In fact, I disagree A LOT.

The Antisemites love to talk about the Rothschilds and how they helped to create the State of Israel. And, it’s true that they did. But, they were only a small part of the story.

A bigger part of the story lies with those who were against the Rothschild Israelis – if that’s how you want to think of them. But, it took time for these anti-Rothschilds to be defeated. And, it was Bibi who helped destroy them so completely that they no longer exist as an independant party.

That’s right. The same Labor party that invited Yasser ‘The Dirtbag’ Arafat to take over Judea, Samaria and Gaza, is no more. The socialists and communists in Israel have been soundly beaten.

So, why do morons want to keep talking about the Rothschilds?

Sorry, but morons will always be morons. Attempting to ‘fix stupid’ will drive you nuts. These people never learn.

The Unheard Story: The ultra-Orthodox who leave everything to join the IDF – Israel News – Jerusalem Post

If you spend enough time in Israel, and if you have eyes that see and ears that hear, you’ll figure out that there is a cultural civil war going on in Israel. It pits the religious against he non-religious. European culture against Middle East culture. Socialism against capitalism. Saving lives and taking them. Peace through superior firepower versus peace through conciliation.

The divides in Israel are gigantic, and the only reason why those divides haven’t led to open warfare, is the threat that the Arabs wish to destroy Israel. That fact is one of the reasons why I call the anti-Semites the biggest Zionists on the planet. Nothing has created unity in Israel, like a threat to Israel’s survival.

If the Arabs had just waited, they could have plucked Israel out of the Middle East without much effort at all. But, the Arabs aren’t prone to deep thought, so the missed their opportunity.

I raise all that, because this article is a snapshot of the of the centrifugal forces that threaten to tear Israel apart. And, most people just don’t see it.

Maybe I really do need to lead a cultural divide tour of Israel. A friend keeps telling me to do this, but I remain unsure.

The bottom line is that Israelis are their own worst enemy. The only thing keeping them from destruction, are the bigger enemies that want to kill them. So, maybe I should stop telling the anti-Semites to shut up.

  1. You wrote: I am outraged at the evil within our churches.
    You forget the Real Church is NOT a corporate body, but the individual believers. The buildings you see are just ‘clubs’ people join to huddle together to ‘belong’ for seeming safety. Of course, true believers can be in these so-called churches but usually not for long.

    • Hi Frances,

      I’m sorry to disagree with you, but I must. The basic unit within the Kingdom is not the individual. And, you only need to read the first chapters of Revelation to see it. But, we also have the words of Jesus:

      For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

      – Matthew 18:20

      Look up the word church, or the word assemble. You will find that it is an absolute MUST for us to assemble together in the name of Jesus Christ.

      Only a wolf would reject this. So, if you learned this from someone else, you need to flee that person.

      I hope this helps, Frances.

      Yours in Christ,

      • I’m sure Frances meant the Church consists of many believers, not the building or denomination. Might be “women are from Venus and men are from Mars” moment. Even I might be taken wrong. Yes, and it can be Church where 2 or more are gathered in His name and I’m sure that’s what Frances meant.

  2. Hi John!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Just in case I forget to say that or don’t have the chance.

    One quick note before answering your question. I would contend that Christmas is not a christian holiday simply because we were not instructed to remember His birth, but His crucifixion and resurrection. However, we can celebrate for any reason and make it christian if Christ is at the center of that celebration.

    Now to your question on chapter 8 of Daniel. Antiochus or Anti-christ.
    I vote for option #4

    Daniel 8:20-21 tells us directly that the identity of the ram and goat. We also know from history that after Alexander died his four generals divided the kingdom among themselves. This would be the one horn breaking and being replaced by 4 new horns.

    So part of what is described in this chapter has happened, fulfilled prophecy.

    Now for the little horn.

    Lets look at vs 11 (kjv):

    Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down.

    What is “prince of the host”? The word in Hebrew is “sar tsaba”

    Where have we seen something like this before?
    Joshua 5:14. The same phrase is used to describe the pre-incarnate Christ when He appeared to Joshua.

    So, who dares to make himself equal to God?
    Now to my favorite prophet, Isaiah 14:13-14. aka the five “I wills”

    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:

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

    Clearly, it is the Anti-Christ that is referred to in vs 11

    I would contend that Antiochus was a foreshadowing of the AC. A dress rehearsal by his deeds, but Antiochus was not specifically mentioned in Daniel.

    And now for the last connection. Daniel 9:27

    And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

    It is the AC that takes away the daily sacrifice and magnifies himself to be equal to God. I am betting you won’t agree with this last connection, but I would like to hear what you think I got wrong.

    • Hi Michael Wilson,

      GRRRRRRRRR…. It’s that Michael guy again, messing up my carefully constructed questions!

      Option FOUR he said… (GRRRRR).

      Now that I’ve gotten my growling out of the way, I’m willing to admit that you have a couple of points there, like… um …the joke about the horns of a bull. (ahem!)

      Is Antiochus IV Epiphanes a prototype of Antichrist?

      Absolutely, just as Hitler, Mao, Stalin, the Pope, etc. It is clear to me that Satan has made many attempts to bring his Antichrist into the world, and failed every time. Now that we have reached the end of history, Satan will have one final chance and will be allowed to succeed for a short time.

      Now, you raise the point about Daniel 9:27, and I’m glad that you did – since it gives me the chance to point people to the article that I wrote, here:

      http://www.omegashock.com/2017/12/01/how-long-is-the-tribulation/

      Remember that there is nowhere in Daniel 9 or the rest of the Bible, that gives us permission to insert a pause between the 69th week and the 70th week. Furthermore, we do not have anything in the Bible that indicates that this pause actually happens. So, because of that, we must dismiss Daniel 9:27 from our consideration here.

      Remember that the Bible agrees with itself and comments on itself. If an interpretation relies upon one verse, and one verse only, then you are probably wrong in your interpretation. The Bible really is in perfect agreement, and this ‘pause’ in Daniel’s 70 weeks is not in keeping with that Biblical standard.

      Oh, and I agree about Christmas, Mike. There’s literally nothing wrong in celebrating the birth of Our Lord and Savior!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
      omegashock.com

      • Hi again John
        I agree, no pause.
        If there were a pause button, you would not want me anywhere near it!
        Just think of it; hit the pause button and everyone freezes yet are aware. Then I would plant a tune in their heads like this:
        https://youtu.be/X4jbq9SVxAc
        It would take weeks to get that out of their heads!

        or how about this?

          I call it The ‘Sponge Cake’ song. Whenever Mrs. Little brings home some, this song goes through my head. In fact, I often sing bits of it to the delightful consternation of the Missus. And, since she is now off doing errands, she might bring some home.

          They do that here. Sponge cake, I mean. Why they have a thing for this devilishly tantalizing confection, I have no idea. But, it doesn’t last long, whenever the Missus brings it home. So, I’ve taken to calling it ‘Devil Cake’, since I cannot resist consuming all of it – or, at least, what Mrs. Little leaves for me – which is why I NEVER buy it.

          Now, for some reason my mind has changed the words of this song from “Nibblin’ on sponge cake” to “Livin’ on Sponge Cake”, and I’m not the only one. I don’t know why. But, I am prepared to live on sponge cake, if given just half of an excuse. Just half.

          Okay, you must now do penance for foisting these songs upon all of us. But, I shall need to think of something appropriately awful.

          I know! Being condemned to working on the BART. There. A fitting punishment, indeed.

          Thanks, Mike!

  3. After reading what you wrote about women, babies and even more babies,
    On women in general for boys.

    to sanctify her by cleansing her with the washing of the water by the word

    Unfortunately the supreme beauty of relationships between man “and his grlzz” is only for the fighters.
    Fasten your seatbelts, forget Christmas, live like a punk and read Paul. His letter to the Ephesians opens before our eyes a world that was lost in sin.
    He explains the power of sin, why it kills love. It took fifty years to get my daughter in her own way in my first love. My little niece in LA only a couple of weeks. My daughter was broken in her spirit, brainwashed, “restructured” in the power of state officials. Not a big deal? Please tell me, John Little, where antichrist, according to Daniel 8, will come from.

    And forgive me when I am not truly interested in the outcome. All the queens that I know are dead, murdered in their spirit while trying to overcome the sins of the guards. Don’t we know that a woman’s law is in the Victory of her lover? Poor lovers… Satan hates you and will try to masturbate you as soon as you dream of girls, with your Standard filled to the top with evil spirits. Too many boys and men give in to the temptation, destroying their ability to fight the spiritual warfare.
    How can you pray? Stained in the power of another man, who grabbed in a nightly vision of the dead what belongs to you? Being destroyed, your word is useless in regards to women. It is your word that is supposed to cleanse them.

    The word is the sword of our spirit.
    It gets sharpened in prayer, till the Lord can Bless the words that we have spoken. He then teaches how to be the Glorious Fighter that is surrounded by all the little girls and grandma’s of the land. Of course, Jesus reveales Himself in this as the Center of the efforts, John 15:11 These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. In Ephesians 6 is the manual (no pun intended) and information about necessary armor.

    • Okay, lots of compelling imagery there, Peter. But, I’m not completely certain about what you are trying to say. Could you explain? – JL

      • Ezekiel 36:26 comes to mind. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

        Under this link https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/women-more-unhappy-than-men-until-they-reach-mid-80s-j868mxzkv you elaborate in a medical and a sociological way. Then you write about THE HEARTLESS CHURCH.

        So I felt compelled to add a spiritual comment. It’s not off topic, is it?

      • Sorry John, it’s me again. Instead of starting with my morningprayer, I am thinking of what you wrote about that thyroid (in Dutch ‘schildklier’). It is not fair, there is nothing that I can do, I even donot know what to say. I don’t know how much you suffer and it makes me feel bad.
        Anyway, what you wrote about the depressions seems far more important than what you wrote about ac, the little horn in that nightvision and even what has been written in Daniel 8.
        I am afraid that’s how it works. You cannot write about the terrible suffering that you are going through in depression after depression and at the same time make much sense asking where AC Will Come From….
        So you are wounded, eh? And suffering. Do you want me to pray?
        Donot take this lightly. We, my friends and I, are coming. The strong wind has come. Armor is not a theorie anymore, it serves as a ship in deep waters.
        The stuff that I wrote up here is only the beginning of something bigger than me, something that does not harm us. Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk trough the darkest valley (sail through the swamp), I wil fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
        Being on fire in the middle of a conflict. Psalm 1:4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Therefor the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

        • Hi Peter Schilperoord,

          I have many Dutch friends, and they are scattered about the world. And, I care about each and every one of them. The Dutch are a special people!

          As for my depression and Hashimoto’s disease, the Lord has given me comfort in the midst of it. And, the Lord has made it clear to me that this is necessary – if I am to serve Him appropriately. Paul speaks of something like this, when he refers to his ‘thorn in the flesh’.

          And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

          – 2 Corinthians 12:7

          God is good. Always.

          So, thank you for your kind concern, Peter. I only mention my depression, so that others who suffer can know that they are not alone and that there are many who understand. And, it appears that many have been blessed by what I have shared.

          Yours in Christ,

      • Yes, Peter seems to be talking “code”. I didn’t get it, either.

  4. Hi John,
    now, you really made me thinking, and I mean THINKING about Daniel 8. Thanks!
    Looking up historical events it’s extremely difficult to fight against #2. It all fits too well, even those 2300 days between starting persecutions by Epiphanes (171BC) and cleansing the temple (December 25, 165 BC). But, that’s where the fun begins:
    -“time of the end”?
    -“not by human power”?
    -“in the latter days”? (exactly the same word is to be found in… Ezekiel 38)
    -and, finally, “seal up the vision”, which obviously means “do not explain the details, at this time no one will understand.
    There’s more – Daniel is extremely intelligent and well-educated person. Concepts like succession of kings and kingdoms, emperors declaring themselves as deities are quite normal for him. Just like the fact, that some of them are sworn enemies of Israel. So – what happens in verse 27?!
    For Daniel, there’s something beyond understanding, and that “something” just cannot be the story of Epiphanes. He was told about kingdom, and king, operating in ways he could not even describe. Two millenia after, we can. And, with Daniel’s help, we are told that this final kingdom has something in common with the story of Epiphanes’.
    Sorry for such a crime against rules of the poll, but, after pressing #2, I’m forced to press #3, and keep them both chosen:) And, probably, we have a clue to answer the big question from the title. Maybe, also other questions but I need to think it over.
    Yours in Christ
    Chris

  5. Daniel clearly tells us the time line which many miss for whatever reason? Dan 8 is the end days vision of Dan 2 – there was Babylon – Persia – Greece and in these last days we have these same empires a template basically revived as Iraq – Iran and Greece again to come which is being gathered and united together because of Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital – so the question is where is Greece in these last days ?

    My understanding is that it is found in the DNA of todays Middle Eastern people whom Alexander and his army intermarried with – Every nation today that Alexanders 4 generals ruled after he died are today Islamic nations – from the Indus River Pakistan Afghanistan to Egypt – Turkey the Balkans – Iraq – Syria etc etc

    Daniels Interpretation of the Vision was for the last days – end days – days of wrath

    https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Daniel+8%3A17-26&version=KJV

    Dan 8 is a template for the last days much like the 70 year Babylonian Captivity was for the first 70 years of their return in 1948 – OR the revival verses Captivity of Israel in 606 BC Northern Israel went into captivity in 587 BC Judah and Jerusalem went into captivity 19 years apart – In 1948 Israel again became a nation 19 years later 1967 Jerusalem and Judah again were revived but the Jewish people

    There is a lot more that this entails such as all of these timelines fall on 2520 biblical years or 7 x 360 years

    • Hi Willard,

      I replaced your verse quotes with a link to those verses so that people could actually see your reasoning more clearly.

      I’m not sure that we can use ‘DNA’ as a method of analysis. Remember that Daniel is speaking of ‘kingdoms’ and not ‘nations’. But, even if we were talking about ‘nations’, I don’t think that DNA is going to help us. There are identifying characteristics to a nation, that define a nation, that has nothing to do with DNA.

      I shy away from numerology, even though it is clear that there is a pattern to some numbers in the Bible. But, I believe that people have taken this way too far. A nice big question mark should always be placed above any discussion of numerical patterns.

      It doesn’t mean that they are wrong.

      But, I believe that it does mean that we should be careful in how we handle them.

      Now, if the Bible explains what these specific numbers mean, then we are free to emphasize them. If the Bible does NOT explain the significance of these numbers, then we run the risk of adding to the Bible, and that is a sin in the eyes of God.

      Interesting points, Willard. Thank you for sharing those.

      Yours in Christ,

  6. Ezek 4 tells us the same story and gives us the same timeline –

    ……………………….This will be a sign to the house of Israel.

    https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezekiel+4%3A4-8&version=KJV

    To bear the sins of the Jewish people Ezek for 390 days was to lie on his left side for the house of Israel and 40 days for the house of Judah which totals 430 years – The 70 year captivity paid for seventy year of their sins which leaves us with 360 year of sin yet to be paid for – as we know the Jewish people never did repent even when they went back to rebuild the second temple – only about 40,000 people actually returned according to Ezra and Neh

    We are told in Lev 26:21 “ ‘If you remain hostile toward me and refuse to listen to me, I will multiply your afflictions seven times over, as your sins deserve

    If this is indeed the case that 360 years of unpaid sin that remains x 7 thier sin would be multiplied than that equals 2520 prophetic or biblical years.

    The jews were released from their Babylonian captivity in 536 BC add to that 2520 biblical or prophetic years brings us too 1948 AD an amazing prophecy filled in our lifetime and we are now in the 69th going on the 70th year of their rebirth as a nation and Trump recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel just like Cyrus in his 537 BC decree allowed the Jews to go back to Israel rebuild their second temple in 536 BC – we have been given the U-tube video by Daniel and Ezek and Jer and others

  7. [UNNECESSARY DESCRIPTION DELETED BY JL]

    The ‘little horn’ in verse 9, and the ‘king of fierce countenance’ in verse 23 – is Antiochus Epiphanes.

    Antiochus Epiphanes defiled the sanctuary and caused the daily sacrifice to be taken away for 2,300 days.

    His persecution of the Jews began in 171 B.C. and the temple was CLEANSED on December 25, 165 B.C., which is 2,300 days.

    The Temple was liberated and rededicated.

    The festival of Hanukkah was instituted to celebrate this event.

    “And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; THEN SHALL THE SANCTUARY BE CLEANSED.”

    Judah Maccabee, the son of an old priest, ordered the TEMPLE TO BE CLEANSED, a new altar to be built in place of the defiled one and new holy instruments to be made.

    That fulfilled the 2,300 days prophecy in Daniel 8.

    Daniel 8 is not about ‘end-times’ or the antichrist.

    • Hi BK,

      That segment was really all that you needed to write. People will understand you better, and are more likely to take the time to read it. A long, drawn-out discussion will be skipped by people who are short on time.

      Your points were sufficiently made, in your last lines. And, your points are quite persuasive.

      The problem is that we can find no evidence in the rather detailed records of that period, that the persecution of the Jews began in 171 BC. The only way that you can fit this 2300 days in, is to just claim that it fits – without any evidence.

      Where is your evidence that the persecution began in 171 BC?

      The persecution of the Jews only began in 168 BC. Yes, there was an attempt to ‘Hellenize’ the Jews for the preceding two years, but that doesn’t fit within the character of the description in Daniel 8 and the ‘man of fierce countenance’. And, it still doesn’t reach to the year 171, so it STILL isn’t 2300 days.

      Here’s a pretty good description:

      http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/1589-antiochus-iv-epiphanes

      So, I’m afraid that the foundation of your argument is unable to sustain your conclusion, BK.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Your question was: Who is the ‘little horn’ of Daniel 8?

        My post above was simply to answer that question.

        In order to keep a long post from being even longer, I gave the ‘mostly accepted’ answer to the 2,300 days.

        I will attempt to be more accurate….

        Be aware – I’m about to condense a long and complicated study into just a few lines.

        In verse 14, “days” is a bad translation.

        The Hebrew “erev — boker,” translates to, “evening – morning”.

        A close look at the verse tells us that the period being asked about STARTS from the TAKING AWAY OF THE DAILY SACRIFICE.

        The 2,300 is in reference to sacrifices – not days.

        Verse 14 should read, “2,300 evening morning” (both singular).

        One evening sacrifice and one morning sacrifice per day = 1,150 days, consisting of 2,300 ‘evening and morning’ sacrifices.

        We know exactly when the sacrifices were taken away….

        I Maccabees 1:54-

        “On the 15th day of the 9th month of the 145th year [of the Greek kingdom] king Antiochus set up the abominable idol of desolation upon the altar of God.”

        The same book tells us the time of restoration –

        “And they arose before the morning of the 25th day of the 9th month of the 148th year, and they offered sacrifices according to the law upon the new altar…”

        Three Greek years = 1,080 days

        Two intercalary months = 60 days

        From 15th to 25th = 10 days

        ——————————————

        Total 1,150 days = 2,300 evening and morning sacrifices

        • Hi BK,

          Thank you for your brevity. It is easier to understand, and it allows other people to share their own thoughts. Long comments tend to crowd out others, and I want to give everyone an opportunity to share.

          Unfortunately, I must disagree with your interpretation. I speak and read Hebrew, and I understand Hebrew’s syntax and method of communication. The usage of ‘erev’ (evening) and ‘boker’ (morning) in verse 14 are singular. There is also no ‘and’ between them. Because they are singular, you cannot claim that this vision is counting 1150 morning sacrifices and 1150 evening sacrifices – especially since there is no ‘vav’ (and) between erev and boker.

          Furthermore, the word for ‘sacrifice’ is not used in Daniel. So, you can’t actually make that point as strongly as you think. The word used is ‘ha-tameed’ – or, ‘the continual’.

          Having said that, there is a reluctance in Hebrew to use the plural for morning and evening, so let’s look at your new idea, that this is really about 1150 days.

          Your claim of ‘Greek’ years is unusual and immaterial. A year is a year. More importantly, Kislev is Kislev. You don’t get to claim ‘Greek Years’, because they were measuring from Kislev to Kislev.

          You also can’t get to 1150 days, when you are counting from Kislev in 168 BC, to Kislev in 164 BC. The stopping of the sacrifices, the burning of the Torah, the massacre of the Jews, and the imposition of Greek idolatry began in 168 BC, not 167.

          That’s FOUR YEARS not three.

          But, let’s try to verify the correctness of this position by looking at other verses. In verse 17, it says that this vision is for ‘the time of the end’. 164 BC is nowhere NEAR the ‘time of the end’.

          In verse 23, 24 and 25, it speaks to the character of this ‘little horn’. Did Antiochus IV conform to those characteristics?

          Yes, we can point to some characteristics of Antiochus IV, but all of them?

          And, verse 26 says that the vision was to be ‘shut up’ or concealed. It was not going to be allowed to be easily understood. And, I think that THIS is VERY clear. And, it will be for many days.

          Antiochus IV was less than 400 years after Daniel 8. Is that enough time for ‘many days’?

          And, you will notice that nothing is said of this vision in Daniel 9. No reference whatsoever.

          In the final analysis, Antiochus IV does not fit within Daniel 8. And, I believe that this prophecy was made deliberately difficult (ie, closed) to entrap the unwary.

          We will know more as we get closer to the time when the Antichrist rises.

          Thank you for your input, BK.

          Yours in Christ,

  8. Greetings John,

    nice post, Trump’s Jerusalem recognition was an early Christmas present for us all.
    I want to float an observation past you for your input. A sane entity doesn’t start a war he knows he can’t win. So why does Satan think he can win? My view is because while he cannot overtly beat his Creator, he (thinks he) can force God into a stalemate.
    Many verses teach us that God’s word is immutable and He cannot lie. So we know about His promises: Messiah (who will provide Satan’s fate) to come from the human race (Genesis 3:15) and Satan and his allies many attempts to upend that (leading to the global flood). Abraham emerged, and Israel after him. Jesus fulfilled His mission and we know the sweep of history up to now. Your contention that Israel must be saved before Jesus will return is spot on (Matt 23:37-39; Hosea 5:15; Acts 3: 19-21; Romans 11:15, 25-26; Zech 12:10). His return will primarily be to lift the siege of Jerusalem and rescue the saved Jewish remnant (and other Christians) who plead for His return, we even know where He will return (Zech 14:1-9, Acts 1:9-12).

    This has driven centuries of antisemitism, if Satan can destroy and/or assimilate Jews and Israel, there is no nation/people for Jesus to return to rescue. The church should have invoked jealousy in Jews (Romans 11:11 and other verses), but instead the (bulk of the) church slaughtered and abused them.

    If Satan succeeds in destroying Israel, God’s words fail (Jeremiah 31:35-37). Hence Satan and his human allies numerous furious onslaughts against Israel/Jews.

    It won’t stop until we reach Zech 14:1-9. Trump’s Jerusalem move has lit the dry tinder lying around this issue – next up is Ezekiel’s Fire to hammer the Gog&Magog alliance which has already formed (directly named nations in our Bible, how much more evidence do we need?!), then eventually the AC and entire world will move against Israel, which Jesus will personally deal with. Its incredible to see bible prophecy fall into place before our very eyes! Does that make sense to you?

    Cheers,
    BigJon

  9. The real church is not the incorporated entities that have become tax exempt assemblies Word of God buffet diners.

    The real church is as Jesus say’s in Matthew 16

    https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+16:15-19&version=KJV

    19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    And on the basis of principle in verse 19 I say that the practice of tradition in blending Christ with pagan traditions being taught by the RCC which made it out during the reformation as a link back to it the “evangelical church” has an unteachable spirit that dwells in it’s midst. It is in a morphing state of violation of the Word of God.

    This passage speaks to those who belong to Christ.

    Jeremiah 10 Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

    https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jeremiah+10&version=KJV

    Christ Mass is an invention of the RCC to bring idolatry into the forefront of these assemblies.

    • Hi jeff,

      Okay, I agree with a lot of what you say here, BUT… let me point out that tax-exemption does not make a church false. Yes, many false churches are ‘tax exempt’, but I can show you many that are not. A lot of the wolfish, ‘liberty-minded’ churches are not ‘tax exempt’. The Pharisee churches that I grew up in aren’t ‘tax exempt’. And, there are some good churches out there, that have taken advantage of the benefits that accrue with a ‘tax exempt’ status.

      As for you point about Christmas, I run hot-and-cold on this issue. I understand why some are against it. I understand why some are for it.

      Our church, here in Taiwan, will have a candle light service on the evening of December 24th, where many unsaved Taiwanese will come and hear a gospel message and sing songs of praise to God. Our pastor will preach on the need to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and to submit their will to Him. And, there are many who have come to Christ through services like this.

      However, my church in Jerusalem does NOT celebrate Christmas, since it is associated so strongly with Roman Catholicism, in Israel. And, for the 15 years that I was in Israel, I never celebrated Christmas in any way. And, I made it very clear that I did not.

      I believe that the point is the need to be clear on Who we follow and serve. If there is anything that we do that would interfere with our sharing of the Light of Christ, we must avoid it at all costs. Likewise, if there is anything that would spread the light of Christ, we should seek to do it.

      Furthermore, we should also understand that we have liberty in Christ. The first church that I ever attended, beat up the members of that church, over everything. One of those things was Christmas. They were Pharisees (Paroshim) of the first order, and such harshness is an offense to God. The pastor bound us to his will, and it was wrong in every way.

      And, for myself, I’ve had to ask God to forgive me for a lot of things, and the biggest was being a Pharisee.

      Thanks for sharing that, Jeff.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • You are correct about a church not being automatically false by being tax exempt. That was not my point. My point is the the very details of governing the church is laid out in scripture. I have watched first hand how being incorporated leads to a varying amount of ambiguity that very often leads leadership into unaccountability. I have also witnessed in every single organized church I have been in a shift in focus to maintaining the business of the church not the spiritual health of it’s members.
        My point is this, we all in Christ have choices to serve Him. Not everything I say or do does.
        Matthew 16:11-12
        The doctrine of the pharisees are the point here.
        And after being commended by the Lord for his response to the question, “who do you say that I am?” When Christ reveals to them the Father’s plan to have Him delivered as a sacrifice Peter then goes on to rebuke the Lord and it is recorded Christ say’s to him, “get behind me satan”.
        Any who are in Christ can be like Peter. Much of what has been built is not entirely of the Lord. That is my point, many are zealous for tradition or the real estate but not the will or Word of God.
        Organic Christianity, may it be found.

  10. Antichrist? Do U mean a false christian / or false teacher? Only the Apostle John used that terminology, and it had nothing to do with a ‘world leader’ whether religious or political, but any person that denies that Yeshua is the Messiah, the Son of God.
    Even the Apostle Paul or Peter did not use the term & neither does Daniel … U are reading into the text what is NOT there!
    This is the typical dispensational eschatology error that has dominated the fundalmentalist & evangelical & modern day American church teachings since the mid 18oo’s ! Or what we call eisegesis, instead of exegesis?
    John, please re-read John’s 3 letters, he explains very plainly what an antichrist is, and he probably meant specifically any Jew that denies Yeshua! (sounds like many modern day Jews to me?)

    • Hi Jim,

      I understand your point, but the shoe still fits!

      And, John actually said this:

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

      1 John 2:18

      John actually calls the wicked one that will arise, Antichrist. Or, That Antichrist.

      Furthermore, it should be clear to everyone that The Wicked One will oppose Christ and will seek to destroy anyone who worships Christ. And, he will be the worst in the history of all who have done such. Therefore, he will be the greatest of all the antichrists that have lived.

      He will be The Antichrist.

      This has nothing to do with the dispensationalists, or anyone else. Just because a certain group of people believe a certain thing, does make that thing right or wrong – no matter their other beliefs.

      Are we going to stop believing in Jesus, because the Catholics claim Him to be their own?

      Thank you, Jim.

  11. Hi, John~
    Would you please explain in further detail why we (Christians) would not want the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem to be built? Doesn’t this have to happen because it has been prophesied? You also say that “Judaism is pagan. Judaism is idolatry. ” I thought that the Jews were God’s chosen people. I realize that they have rejected Christ as Messiah, but I’m just a little confused by your comments. If you could enlighten me. Thanks so much.

    • Hi Karen Altman,

      When Jesus died, was buried, rose again and then rose into heaven… because all of that …the need for a sacrifice for sin was over. Jesus was the final sacrifice.

      Therefore, any sacrifices that are instituted, are a ‘slap in the face’ of the Final Sacrifice made by Jesus. This means that a Third Temple is incompatible with Christianity. It is against Christianity, and all who are involved in this ‘Third Temple’ effort have made that clear.

      And no, a third temple has NOT been prophesied.

      I know some of the people who are involved with the Third Temple Institute. They hate Christianity with a passion, but they take Christian money. Very ironic. I truly feel sorry for those who have thrown their money away, in support of this anti-Christian group.

      And yes, Judaism is pagan. They worship their scrolls and their ‘Great Rabbis’ like the pagan Taiwanese worship their idols. And yes, they are remarkably similar.

      Judaism is also rabidly anti-Christian. And, the rabbis changed Judaism to reflect that anti-Christian message. In fact, one friend joked that 95% of Judaism can be summarized in one sentence: “We are not Christian.”

      Does it change the fact that God has still ‘chosen them’ to fulfill His promise to Abraham and to fulfill His the prophecies that He has given us?

      No. It changes nothing. God has still chosen the children of Abraham, for the future fulfillment of prophecy.

      To make this more personal, you were chosen before the foundation of the world. (Ephesians 1:4) But, you did not begin your life, following God. You were still chosen, but you were a pagan until you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

      There is only one name under heaven by which we can be saved. (Acts 4:12) All else are pagans. By definition.

      I hope that helps, Karen. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask!

  12. Hi John,
    you are right, those 2300 days of Antiochus are not certain at all (I just had to do fast research and, maybe, I should even read some book about Epiphanes. And I didn’t, for the lack of time. It’s not obvious, for sure).
    But, in some way, it was placed in such a way in Daniel 8, and here I see two points:
    -“His brother, King Seleucus IV, exchanged him for Demetrius, the son of Seleucus; and after Seleucus was murdered by Heliodorus, a usurper, Antiochus in turn ousted him.”
    https://www.britannica.com/biography/Antiochus-IV-Epiphanes
    Epiphanes comes to power in not-so-legal way, in chaos.
    -he was also a hostage in Rome (for years), so he knows the West, and knows the East (as defined in his time). Interesting. Capability of mixing the approaches. “As a ruler he was best known for his encouragement of Greek culture and institutions.” He tried to do it in the East (as seen in his time).
    Also, he “joins the sides”, declares himself as “god”, and is the enemy of Israel. And he rules over the area which encompasses significant part of Gog and Magog coalition.
    All of the above is just my speculation, and I’m not eager to defend it “to the last man”. But, I somehow recognize the approach of mixing all sides, then stirring conflict, and coming out with the solution. It was already invented. By Marx. It’s communism.
    I just wanted to share it, and no, I’m not sure about one single word of what I said. I cannot prove it. Maybe I’ve gone too far. That’s my experimental post. I feel like Daniel, and I have “beyond understanding” feeling.
    Yours in Christ
    Chris

  13. I came across your website about a year ago or so… At first you were interesting but then after awhile your sanctimonious smug judgmental posts became trite. Be careful, sir…that in your attempt to spread the good news, along with your incessant need to point out the sliver in “our eyes” that you fail to see the beam in your own.

    I am a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS). That’s right, I am a Mormon. And I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. One tenant of our faith is that we respect the rights of others to worship as their faith dictates. You certainly don’t determine my eternal welfare (thank goodness)–in that you believe that I am going to go to hell just because I am LDS. The good Lord led me on this path and I am a better human being because of it.

    I want you to know and understand that I believe in a Loving Father, in his son Jesus Christ and his infinite atonement.

    I encourage you to be less judgmental.

    Good day, sir.

    Remember: contention is of the devil. 🙂

    • Hi Sharon Jackson,

      Oh dear. When I see a comment like this, I immediately wonder about the identity of the ‘sacred cow’ that I must have turned into hamburger. But, I didn’t need to look too far, since you have passionately expressed your devotion to Mormonism.

      And, let me say that I truly feel sorry for you. I really, really do. But, let me start with the most important point.

      I’m sorry, but contention is NOT of the devil. In fact, what is ‘of the devil’ is a demand that I not be so ‘judgmental’ without providing any evidence of such. We are called by God to judge righteous judgement (John 7:24). It would be more appropriate to reword your statement to say, “Attacking others without providing a legitimate cause, is of the devil.”

      You see, Satan LOVES it when he can suppress contention. He just LOVELOVELOVELOVES it.

      Thou shalt not ask difficult questions, says Satan.

      Thou shalt never question those who are in authority, says Satan.

      Thou shalt not disagree with others, says Satan.

      Thou shalt not cause disruption of any kind, says Satan.

      Isn’t that the Mormon way?

      Everything is carefully regimented and controlled in the Mormon church. Mormonism is one of the most hierarchical organizations in America, and Satan LOVES organizations like that. And, the legalism and monitoring and the threats… my friends who escaped the Mormon church have tales to tell.

      Oh, and the lies.

      How does it make you feel, when you ask (or are asked) to lie about the beliefs of the Mormons?

      Does it make you cringe, when you lie? Even though you lie to glorify the Mormon church?

      God is not glorified by lies, and has no need for anyone to lie for Him. But, the Mormons believe that lies are necessary, to gain converts. Only when they reach the higher levels within the Mormon church, are they told the ‘secret truth’ about the Mormon church.

      And, I could go on and on about the secrets of the Mormons. Did you know that, according to the Mormons, Lucifer is the brother of Jesus? Did you know that DNA testing proves the Book of Mormon to be a lie?

      I truly have sympathy for you, Sharon. You will suffer in Hell forever, because you chose lies instead of the truth.

      Yours in Christ,

  14. So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and I fell on my face: but he said to unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the END shall be this vision
    Daniel 8:17

  15. I just reread Isaiah 30. In context. It’s weird. My first impression was that the 7-times-brighter verbiage is a poetically positive description of how much better things will be when ….. not sure of the intended timeline but it is also talking about ideal conditions on earth, (millennium?) and it does not at all sound like everything is burnt to a crisp. But at the same time, God does mix things up and hide certain interpretations until the proper time. Subsequent verses do talk about the Lord executing violent judgement upon the rebellious. So what do you make of this jumbling and interspersing of ideal conditions and extreme judgement? It does say that this time, God will bare His arm so all will see that this judgement is from Him, not a quirk of weather. Even if we did have a superflare, surviving scientists would say, “that was a superflare. That happens. It does not contradict the idea that in the beginning, there was nothing, and then it exploded. In fact, it just happened again …..”

    • Hi DRG,

      You have motivated me to look at Isaiah 30 AGAIN. And, I quickly ran into this verse:

      10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

      Whenever someone attacks my writing for being so ‘judgmental’, verses like that come to mind. You’ll see Sharon Jackson’s comment, above. I really am so sorry. It’s very sad. My heart goes out to people like her.

      But, that wasn’t your question. Lesseee… where is that …oh yes. It’s here:

      26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

      The context of ‘the light of the moon and the light of the sun’ is this:

      the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound

      It’s that moment of repentance and salvation. It might be more than a day. It might even be less. It’s not about 24 hours, but about a moment in time. A moment in time that surrounds an event. And, Isaiah goes into more detail in the next two verses:

      27 Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:

      28 And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.

      A bridle?

      You mean something like ‘hooks in jaws’?

      Ah yes. Gog and Magog.

      And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

      – Ezekiel 38:4

      Yup. Sounds like a ‘bridle’ to me.

      Please remember that the most common interpretation of Isaiah 30, comes to us via the Dispensationalists. And, I now realize why they claim that the Antichrist is ‘The Assyrian’. Why it took me so long, I’ll never know. I guess that I’m a bit ‘slow’.

      It is only when you force a pre-tribulation rapture into the Bible, are you then able to look at Isaiah 30 and say that this is the Millennium. But, when you realize that the salvation of Israel must come BEFORE the Great Tribulation… then you realize that Isaiah 30 must be talking about a time that MUST HAPPEN BEFORE THE TRIBULATION!

      When you look at all the verses about the salvation of Israel, it should be clear to EVERYONE that their salvation MUST COME BEFORE THE APPEARANCE OF THE ANTICHRIST! (Oops! I was shouting. Sorry.)

      Think about that phrase, “Jacob’s Trouble”. Everyone says that it’s The Great Tribulation. It’s not. Here’s the link:

      https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jeremiah+30&version=KJV

      Sorry, but that’s about the salvation of Israel. NOT the Great Tribulation.

      Here’s another view, if you wish:

      https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zechariah+12-13&version=KJV

      I am amazed at the damage that a lie can make. It took a Jesuit to make the lie happen, but once it got started… wow.

      Gog and Magog is coming. It will shock and rock the world in a way that has never been seen, at least since the Great Flood. After that, a lot will become much clearer. But, you gotta survive to see it.

      I hope that helps, DRG.

      Yours in Christ,

      • OK ….. I do not presume a pretribulation rapture, although in fantasy it sure would be nice if it happened that way. And I know Gog/Magog will happen, and I did get the parallel to the ‘hook in the jaws’. What still does not compute is how there can be contented donkeys and oxen munching on seasoned fodder (a sign of luxurious living, when there is such abundance that you can afford fancy food for the livestock – we put out salt blocks for the animals to lick, they would salt the fodder) and abundance of water – an extreme blessing in a desert land – when everything is in smoking ruins and the majority of people and animals have been burned to death. No one would be celebrating then. A superflare would not distinguish who/what it was radiating upon, it would be that entire side of the earth. And the boundaries of Israel where her enemies would gather is, of course, on the same side of the earth as Israel. So I still don’t get it …..

        • Hi DRG,

          Remember that no one gets burned to death, at least… not from the sun. What will happen is a change in the availability of water in Israel, as underground streams are diverted to the surface – due to the massive earthquakes. This means Israel will be getting more water, even though she has suffered wholesale death and destruction.

          And, there appears to be some correlation between earthquakes and sun activity.

          This will also reshape our civilization. One of the reasons why it is so hard to see how the Antichrist can rise and takeover, is that we do not see the conditions that will occur AFTER Ezekiel’s Fire. I think that we will see more clearly, after Gog and Magog comes.

          As for those ‘smoking ruins’… God mentions those. This will not be a pleasant experience for any of us.

          I hope that helps, DRG. I’m not sure that I have addressed your points properly, so feel free to continue to question me on this.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

          • Still ….. does not compute. 7 times ….. 75 degrees on a summer day …. now 525 degrees with all electric circuits fried … no AC, no fans ….. water boils at 212, that would kill all forms of life that are mostly water ….. it seems even a very conservative estimate of what 7 times hotter and / or brighter would mean …. even if it just goes up to 200 degrees ….. how could anything living survive that? People die in Florida and Puerto Rico at normal temperatures just because the air conditioning went out from the hurricane!!! Seems everything would die except all that weird deep sea life that never comes to the surface, and that much water would not have time to heat up that high at that depth. When I read Revelation, I wonder if anything at all will be left alive on the earth…… how could anything survive all that?

          • Um, wait. This event will not last very long. And, it won’t need to. In fact, it will probably last only minutes or hours. I doubt that it would last for even a full day. So, I don’t see the problem. – JL

          • OK ….. I guess we’ll find out!!!!

  16. Hi there!

    What a week! (phew!!). Hope you are all well.

    Made it through up to to Matthew 24:7 section. Lots to chew on: thank you John. Want contention, live in a house with two girls born close together and now both in the double digits.(*aieeeee!!*). The gray hairs are multiplying!

    Reading through, this song came to mind: https://youtu.be/1FN9Rhajogk

    “What if I Stumble” by DC Talk. The quote in the beginning always stands out: “The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians: who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.” ~Brennan Manning.

    Do not know much about Brennan Manning: am going to be reading up on him.

    And for a dose of awwwwesome cuteness: https://me.me/i/onward-noble-steed-none-19794909

    The LORD bless you and keep you!

    • Hi Jennifer,

      I have a couple of DC Talk’s albums, and I believe the Jesus Freak is one of them – the album that this song is on. But, that quote… very interesting. And, the message of ‘falling’.

      What a challenge for all of us.

      The key is to humble ourselves and openly admit to being sinful and foolish. And, we should not hide our faults. And, we should remove those things from our lives that cause us to fall.

      With great knowledge and great gifts comes great responsibility, and I have failed that responsibility too often to count.

      Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

      – James 4:17

      Just by THAT standard, my sins are HUGE. But, God is merciful to a sinner such as myself. But, He requires that we do our very best, with all of our heart. And, too few do not.

      Thank you for that Jennifer, including the cute little fur-face riding a unicorn!

      Yours in Christ,

  17. Pingback: Where The Antichrist Comes From, Part II |

  18. When Daniel says “the people of the prince to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary”, we need to look at an accurate account of the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple.

    Originally I remembered the Centurion who told Paul that he had bought his Roman citizenship, and I realized that Rome and Italy were too small to man their armies by themselves.

    When I read Josephus, The Jewish war book IV, I found that Vespasian, when he was enroute to Jerusalem, stopped in Damascus and gathered “many auxiliaries from kings in the area”.

    Hmm, Is it possible that these “auxiliaries” had something to do with the destruction of the Temple? You bet it was. I am pretty sure that these auxiliaries were leaders in the destruction of the temple!

    But that is not the end of the story!

    While the Roman armies were yet enroute, someone else got to Jerusalem first, and actually began the destruction!

    This is extremely significant!

    The Idumeans, (Edomites) came to the city gates, but were blocked from entry by the city council. Under cover of darkness, however, some zealots opened a door in the city wall and allowed them in.

    Once the Idumeans got inside they went first to the Temple and killed some 8,000 men there! Then they went throughout the city and killed another 12,500 people!

    Among the people they killed was the High Priest, one Ananus, and his deputy named Jesus. They set up a kangaroo court, with 70 citizen jurists, but when they failed to get a conviction they threw these two men over the Temple wall and they fell to their deaths!

    Ananus and Jesus were reasonable men who knew that they could not defeat Rome, and were prepared to negotiate a surrender. With them dead, the Idumeans left the Zealots in charge. The Zealots were prepared to sacrifice the entire city in defiance of Rome, and that is what happened.

    So, Josephus lays the blame for the destruction of Jerusalem squarely at the feet of the Idumeans.

    Check-out the name of Amman, Jordan during the first century; Philadelphia!

    No it’s not the Philadelphia of Revelation 3! This is the original Philadelphia, given that name by the Hellenic leader of Egypt, Ptolemy Philadelphus, in his own honour.

    Philadelphia, Jordan was also known as the city of seven Jabals (a jabal is the Arabic word for “Mountain”).

    Amman is the city of the Antichrist, in Revelation 18.

    Read my blog housetops.me for more information. Just search for “Jordanian Antichrist”

    • Hi Daniel Knezacek,

      Very interesting. I’d heard about the in-fighting among the rebels in Jerusalem, but I had not heard about the Idumeans. If you have a link, I would be interested.

      The one thing that I’d heard was that Roman soldiers remarked on how they could not have conquered Jerusalem, if the rebels had not been killing each other. One other item of interest is that the soldiers that besieged Jerusalem came from Britain. Rome was attempting to subjugate the Scots, when Jerusalem rebelled.

      And THAT is why we have Hadrian’s wall.

      All because of Jerusalem.

      Now, you mention that Amman is the city of the Antichrist, because of her seven hills. I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Amman. And, I have a good friend who is there now. And, it is the most boring large city that I’ve ever been to. There is literally no reason to ever visit the place.

      Furthermore, Revelation does not equate the ‘city on seven hills’ with the Antichrist. What Revelation describes her as, is the Great Whore who rides the Beast. And, the horns of the Beast burn her with fire.

      It’s really, really hard to see how Amman can ‘ride the Beast’ and be a place of power for The Beast System. I like Jordan. I’ve spent time there. But, it’s a poor country with a tiny population.

      Also, Amman is the site of Rabat Amon, and is even referred to that way by the Jordanians. Yes, I know that it was called Philadelphia, but the Bible refers to her as Rabat Amon. Also, there is an indication that Rabat is destroyed around the time of Gog and Magog, but I am not completely certain.

      I’m not saying that you are wrong, but I just do not see what you are seeing.

      Thanks for that interesting comment, Daniel.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
