The Seven Year Tribulation – From Jesus to Now.
There are two things that must be understood before one goes further in this study.
1Corinthians 15:45-47. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
First came natural things, then with coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and Saviour came spiritual things.
The Old Testament is the New testament concealed: the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed.
The natural historical events in the Old Testament and the Old Testament feasts and rituals commanded by God were all pointers to a spiritual fulfilment in Jesus Christ when he came (Luke 24:44).
Our second point that must be understood is found in John 3:3,5 and 1Corinthians 2:14.
1Corinthians 2:14. (Read from v.9) But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God (the Lord from Heaven): for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them , because they are spiritually discerned.
John 3:3. Jesus answered and said unto him (Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews), Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
We Cannot observe rituals nor can we physically see the kingdom of God. During the Old Testament days there was a physical temple (Deut.12:1-21 – only one) for his people in the land of Israel as an earthly representation of God’s heavenly kingdom. In the New Testament era after the cross we now have a people for God’s temple (Acts 17:24,25; 2Corin.6:16). Jesus replaced the temple building with his body, of which we are members when we are born again (1Corin.12:12-27; Eph.5:30-32).
The kingdom of God comes to us when we are born again through faith (Eph.2:8) by the hearing of the word of God (Rom.10:8-17).
John 3:5. Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Verse 6. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit.
We have a spiritual birth which comes by faith through hearing the word of God. That is why it is called ‘Born again’.
John 4:14. But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
John 3:5 again, ‘Except a man be born of water…’ Ephesians 5:26. That he might sanctify and cleanse it (his bride the church) with the washing of water by the word , and, John 3:5’…and of the Spirit,’… Ephesians 5:18,’…but be filled with the Spirit.’
We must wash our soul with the water of the word and be filled with the Holy Spirit of God or we shall not be born again nor enter the kingdom of God. Once a person is born again he or she wants to be baptized by full immersion in water in like manner as Jesus was buried and rise up to newness of life in like manner as Jesus was resurrected from the dead (Romans 6:1-5).Amen.
Having said this I pray you the reader continue always in your King James Bible (there really is a difference), reading and hearing the word of God and asking God to teach you all things by the power of his Spirit, in Jesus’ name, amen.
Let me share with you a few extra verses:- 1Corinthians 2:9-13. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God (Rom.8:27). For what man knoweth the things of man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now, we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God (when we are born again); that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
Matthew 11:27. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whom the Son (the word) will reveal him (by his Spirit).
Let us now look at the Seventieth Year of Daniel 9:24 to 27. This is the scripture that is used to help establish a seven year tribulation at the end of the world. There are others also but we shall start here. The background to this scripture is from Leviticus 25:8-13. And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shall you cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month (God’s calendar-the day Jesus was born in 7BC, a Jubilee year), in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land (Jesus, our atonement, our Jubilee). And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family (Jesus came to set us free ). A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which growth of itself, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed (do not gather and store). For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession.
All feast and ceremonies point to Jesus and are fulfilled in him. He forgave us, he redeemed us, he set us free.
Isaiah 61:1-4 (read the whole chapter it is fulfilled in Jesus Christ). The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me: because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. And they (the born again) shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations (this refers to spiritually rebuilding God’s people, Jew or Gentile).
Luke 4:18-19,21. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. V.21.And he began to say unto them, This day is the scripture fulfilled in your ears.
Daniel 9:24. Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy.
Seventy weeks is ‘Seventy time sevens’. Seventy times seven is 490 years
Matthew 18:21-22. Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times? Jesus said unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven (490,not literal, but till God’s program of salvation is complete through those being saved by the gospel and the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
God was telling Daniel there are four hundred and ninety years for God’s salvation program, from the going forth of the commandment till the end of the world.
The overview is simply this. The first temple was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar and the children of Israel were taken to Babylon where God looked after them (Jeremiah 29). Nehemiah, Ezra, Haggai, Zechariah, Zerubbabel, Shealtiel and others were all instrumental in reparing the literal wall, city, and temple (which was not as good as the first) so that Jesus would have a temple to come to at his appointed time.
Ezra received a command from God through King Artaxerxes to re- establish the law of God in Jerusalem and throughout the land of Israel. The message was to repent and live without sin (Ezra 7:12-14,21-26). By the way, Cyrus the king is not in view in Isaiah 44:28 and 45:1. Cyrus was only a king, he was never a shepherd. God uses the name as a type. God is talking about forgiveness of sins in Isaiah 44 and being set free from Satan’s prisonhouse in Isaiah 45 through Jesus Christ the ‘good shepherd’.
Daniel 9:25. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment (Ezra 7) to restore and to build Jerusalem (Nehemiah oversaw the(literal work as well as as well as counselling obedience to God, Ezra the priest oversaw the spiritual work) unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks (total of 69 weeks): the streets shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
A total of sixty nine weeks of years had passed when Jesus came, i.e. four hundred and eighty three years since the commandment was given. Remember Leviticus 25 and Matt.18:21-22. Jesus came to save his people from their sins (Matt 1:21) through his blood for forgiveness of sins. He was baptized at the beginning of the seventieth week. God’s clock did not stop. Jesus preached three and a half years and in the midst of the week he put an end to sacrifices and oblations by the sacrifice of himself (Daniel 9:27). Jesus confirmed the covenant with many for one week (the seventieth week). When one reads other translations like the RSV or NIV one comes away with a different picture because the language is changed. Matthew 26:28 tells us that Jesus said ‘For this is my blood of the new testament (covenant), which is shed for many for the remission of sins.’
Daniel 9:24 tells us the reason for the whole of the seventy weeks.
1.It is for Daniel’s people (the Jews) and for Daniel’s holy city (Jerusalem).When a person is born again, by faith, he is a child of God. He is an Israelite, a true Jew, the elect of God, chosen and faithfull, the seed of Abraham (John 1:12; Romans 2:28-29; Romans 9:6-8; Galatians 3:16-17,25-29). Without faith we cannot please God (Hebrew 11:6) and without faith we cannot enter the kingdom of God (Hebrew 4:1-2). When we are born again we have come to Mount Sion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem (Hebrew 12:22).
2.To finish the transgression. The transgression came through Adam (Romans 5:14) and Jesus, who had no earthly father, took it away at the cross for all whosoever he is saving (Romans 5:15-19) whether Jew or Gentile (Romans 10:12). It is for ALL who call on the name of Jesus from the depth of a humble heart and a contrite spirit (Romans 10:9-13; Psalm 51:1-19).
3.To make an end of sins. Hebrew 7:24-25. But this man(Jesus), because he continueth ever (the clock did not stop), hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost (Strong’s 3838, the completion) that come to God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. (Romans 5:8; Matthew 1:24;Isaiah 43:11; Acts 5:31; Acts 13:22-34).
4.And to make reconciliation for iniquity. 2Corinthians 5:17-19. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. (Psalm 32:1-5; Isaiah 53:10-12).
5.And to bring in everlasting righteousness. 2Corinthians 5:21. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (Romans 3:21-26; Romans 4:7-13; 2Corinthians 9:9; Psalm 111:3; Psalm 112:3; Psalm 119: 142; Isaiah 61:10-11; Isaiah 62:1-2; a new name- Isaiah 65:15 – Christian – Acts 11:26).
6.And to seal up the vision and prophecy (Proverbs 29:18 – Jesus is the vision; John 6:27; 2Peter 1:17; Matt.17:1-5; Acts 2:22; Revelation 19:10 – Jesus is the spirit of prophecy ).
7.And to anoint the most Holy. (Jesus himself, the temple of God – John 2:19-21; Colossians 2:9; Hebrew 8:2; Hebrew 9:11; Matthew 3:16-17; Mark 1:10-11; Psalm 45:7.Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
There are many scriptures that confirm Daniel 9:24 is fulfilled in Jesus Christ when he came the first time as the right hand of God unto salvation (Isaiah 62:8-12). Sadly the Jews mostly did not recognize the hour of their visitation .Luke 19:41-44. And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! But now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another: because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation. Today they still do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah which means they also do not believe in the God of the bible (John 15:21-23, 1John 2:23). There will never be a second chance.
2Corinthians 6:2b. Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (we are still in the 490 years, almost to end). In this life only is salvation offered to whosoever will call on the name of Jesus. Soon the door will shut and there will be no more hope (Luke 12:36-40; Genesis 7:16).
Why do the Jews not believe? I believe the answer is in 1Thessalonians 2:14-16. For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sin alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost (Strong’s 5056- continually till the end of time).
We have seen from Daniel 9:25 that there were sixty nine weeks of years before the first coming of Jesus (483 years).
Daniel 9:26. And after the threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself (it was for us whosoever believeth on him): and the people of the prince that shall come (the Romans-70AD) shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war (between God and Satan) desolations are determined (on the unbelievers whether Jew or Gentile)( Isaiah 43:1-2; Revelation 12:14-17- God protects his people, born again Jews and Gentiles over the world).
The end of the war is the end of time (Revelation 10:6 b…. there should be time no longer. It will be all over when Jesus comes back to be glorified in his saints and brings a fiery destruction on the unbelieving world at the same time.
2Thessalonians 1:7-10. And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming Fire taking vengeance on them that that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction (not annihilation) from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints (all born again Jew or Gentile), and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
Daniel 9:27. And he (Jesus) shall confirm the covenant with many (in the upper room Matthew 26:28) for one week (from when he was baptized till the last person is saved): and in the midst of the week (after three and a half years preaching) he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease (by his own sacrifice), and for the overspreading of abominations ( many religions claiming Jesus Christ) he shall make it desolate (empty religions), even until the consummation (time no longer), and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate (the wrath of God without mixture, Revelation 14:9-11).
Jesus made a covenant with many for one week, the final week of Daniels prophecy of continuous salvation. The bible does not say anywhere that an antichrist person will make a peace treaty with the nation of Israel, and then break it in the midst of a seven year tribulation period tacked onto the end of time. The nation of Israel will never have peace on this earth. The true Israel of God are all born again Christians who Peter describe as:- 1Peter 2:9-10. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you (we didn’t call him, we couldn’t) out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God; which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 1Peter1:23. Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible seed, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. On the new heavens and the new earth those who are saved will be in their nations, made up of only saved people. Revelation 21:24. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth (the new earth) do bring their glory and honour into it. On the new earth God will recreate that which was to be before the fall of Adam. This time only righteousness dwelleth there.
Matthew 26:27-29. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament (New Covenant – the old is finished, Hebrew 8:13), which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom. (Acts 10:39-42; Revelation 12:9-11; the kingdom of God was established at the resurrection, that is why he ate and drank with them after the resurrection).
Jesus preached for three and a half years and in the midst of the week he put an end to sacrifice and oblations (religious service) by the sacrifice of himself.
Hebrew 10:11-14,18. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Now where remission of these (sins. iniquities) is, there is no more offering for sin.
Either we are washed by the blood at the cross once, for ever, or there is never any hope anymore.
Luke 2:14(read 10-14). Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.
When Jesus was born peace came to the world. During his ministry of three and a half years there was peace. He was the peace offered to the world but the world rejected him as did his own people (John 1:10-11). We all know that without Jesus there is no peace.
John 14:27. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let your heart not be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 16:33. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Philippians 4:7. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:13-15. But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one (Jew and Gentile), and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Galatians 3:28. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
That brings us to our next question. Most ‘christian religions’ teach a seven year tribulation period with the first half having peace then the antichrist breaks the treaty and there is three and a half years of war, all this after the rapture. As it stands this teaching is wrong. Firstly Jesus declared four times in John chapter 6 that he would take his people up ‘at the last day’. Then we have seen that we had peace the first three and a half years during the ministry of Jesus. In the midst of the seventieth week he was cut off. From that time the world would see him no more, only those who love and obey him (John 14:19-23). There was no preaching from the cross to Pentecost. Jesus only appeared to all who were his, over 500 witnesses (Born again) chosen by God. The second half of the seventieth week started at Pentecost when the disciples were inbued with power from on high and came out preaching, with Jesus confirming his word with signs following… until now. Soon will come the end. I have been expecting the end since 2010. Maybe we will get to 2014 or 2015. God knows. We had better be ready.
Remember in the beginning we mentioned that Paul explained in 1Corinthians 15 that first came the natural, then came the spiritual. Also 1Corinthians 2:13 comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
Noah was a type of Jesus Christ. God told him to build an ark because a great destruction was coming. Only Noah was found to be righteous. When he finished preparing the ark God told him to bring in beasts of the field and fowls of the air as God instructed (Genesis 7:1-4). God told him he had seven days to bring in the beasts and fowls. Genesis 7:10. And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth (Judgement Day). Genesis 7:16. And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.
Jesus is the fulfilment of this prophecy. He is seeking all that are his. We are as beasts but he cleanses us by the blood. He saved personally in the flesh for three and a half years. He is still saving through his word and by his Spirit the second half, a spiritual three and a half years.
Jesus started ingathering as soon as he came out of his fast of forty days in the wilderness. Each day for a year that the Jews would reject him till 70AD when the city ,temple, and nation were destroyed forever (Mark 11:13-14). Jesus is the true ark of God. He is the firstborn of many brethren (Romans 8:29). He is the word of God, the fulfilment of the law is in him (Matthew 5:17-18). He is the Manna from heaven (John 6:35-58). He is our Jubilee and has set us free from the bondage of sin.
The feast of ingathering was from the fifteenth day of the seventh month to the twenty first day of the seventh month. During this seven day feast which all males had to attend they lived outside the city in temporary accommodation that they made for themselves with palm tree and other tree branches. The born again Christian has no place on this earth. Our stay here is temporary. We are in the wilderness ( Revelation 12:6,14-17). We are outside the city (Hebrew 12:22). At the end of the seven day feast, the twenty second day of the seventh month, was the solemn assembly before the LORD. Jesus comes back at the end of the ‘seven day’ Ingathering, from the beginning of his ministry till now and we are assembled with him in the clouds in the air… because this earth is going to burn.
Remember. God’s salvation plan is continuous from Jesus’ baptism till now (490 years) the last three and a half is a spiritual time also known as 1260 days (Revelation 11:3). The two witnesses are all God’s people from Pentecost till now (Revelation11:3-4). From Pentecost till now there has been continual persecution of God’s people, a period of the greatest tribulation ever known. Matthew 24:21 . For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
From Pentecost onward Christians have constantly been killed in large numbers and is still happening today. During 2013 it will get worse with large numbers of real Christians who will not take the mark of Revelation 13:15-18. The result is in verse 7. However we see also we have the victory in the end. HaleluYah. Amen. There has been ever increasing wars and rumours of wars, Nation against nation. Kingdoms against kingdoms. Famines, pestilence, earthquakes, getting more and more serious.
Luke 21:34-36. And take heed to yourselves, lest at anytime your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
God will protect us from the troubles around us till it is time to go up (Isaiah 43:1-3)
Now. Moses also was a type of Christ. God gave him a Passover feast. Also a seven day feast with unleavened bread. Jesus is the Passover Lamb. Because of his shed blood we have escaped spiritual Egypt, sin. We are to Live without sin, Sin no more, he said. That is represented by the unleavened bread. The Passover did not cease for the last 2000 or so years, only to resume in a literal seven day period somewhere at the end of time. Salvation has been continuous. The forgiveness through the blood is continuous. Jesus is the door. The blood was applied to the head and side posts. The blood was on Jesus’ head and sides. People have been washed by the blood every day since Pentecost. God’s salvation has never stopped… but, I tell you, it is about to. Children do not sleep or slumber. Be totally aware of gross religious deception. Spend a lot of time in the word.
The third feast for which all males had to go to Jerusalem was the feast of weeks culminating with Pentecost. Jesus is the firstfruit. Jesus is the wave offering. Jesus is our true Jerusalem. Jesus is also known as Israel (see Isaiah 49). On the day of Pentecost Jesus came and indwelt all his disciples by the manifest power of his Holy Spirit (John 14:21,23).
All three of these main feasts are in operation concurrently through Jesus Christ from the beginning of his ministry till now, till the last man is soon to be saved. God”s clock has never stopped. See ‘The Greatest Lie’ at www.whathathGodsaid.org.
Hebrew 9:26…..: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. V.27. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
This is why it is called the second coming. It is the same Jesus that came approximately two thousand years ago. There are millions in the world today who do not believe- and they are still waiting for the Messiah.
When Jesus comes back there is no major revival. He will take up all who are his, that is, all true born again Christians. There is no second chance. The rest of the world will be judged according to their sins.
Jesus bound Satan when he first came (Matthew 12:25-30,43-45), then he plundered Satan’s goods, that is, people he was saving from Satan’s bondage (Ephesians 2:2-3). Satan was not literally bound one thousand years. The bible say ‘a thousand years’ which is a period of time as God has purposed to its fullness. It seems Satan has been loosed when United Nations was formed or when the United Nations formed the state of Israel. Satan’s headquarters are most likely New York. There is a large synagogue in New York which has or shares spiritual power with Jerusalem since January 2000 or 2001. I think that more Jews live in New York than Israel. They are less than 2 percent of the population of America and they control most of the finance as well as the Federal Reserve System.
Satan is the antichrist and he uses people who bow to him. I am sure the Rothschilds has bowed very low and Satan has given them all the kingdoms of the world (see Luke 4:5-6). All the presidents and other government leaders around the world are puppets of the Rothschilds and their companions. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 says that the antichrist is revealed. We will know him by revelation of the word of God. In the natural we wont see him as antichrist. He will look like all the ‘nice’ preachers one sees on TBN and the like.
It has been very clear since all the nations signed the one world government and religion accord at the NEW YORK 2000 MILLENNIUM SUMMIT during September 5-11,2000, which accord was sealed in blood exactly one year later at 9/11/2001.
Due to false endtime teaching by all the religions most people do not have the revelation of Satan sitting in the assemblies where he ought not, calling himself as God (2Thessalonians 2:4). George Bush Jr. was the last President of America. Obama is the first president of the world using the office of President of America. He is the first world dictator. Setting the scene for the Final dictator.
There are many scriptures in the book of Revelation that are fulfilled already. We need to pray to God for understanding of the book of Revelation through to the end. There are several prophecies being fulfilled simultaneously: for example, the seals, trumpets, and vials have been working out together since the cross till now. It seems we are already in the period of the fifth seal and are very soon to experience the sixth seal. We are in the period of the sixth trumpet and about to he the final call. We are in the time of the sixth vial of God’s judgements falling on an unbelieving world and Jesus said in Revelation 16:15. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. At present I am wondering what will happen soon in relation to Revelation 17:16 because that will be a major event and then it will almost be over.
The prophecy of Revelation 13:1-2 is fulfilled at the New York Millennium Summit in September 5-11, 2000. Verses 3-5,6 is ongoing. There looks like being a final fulfilment of verse 7 coming maybe in the middle of 2013 onward. Verses 11-15 are continually being fulfilled by the many false preachers from Billy graham since 1949 to Rick Warren, John Hagee and others today. It is not a false prophet, it is the office of the false prophet. TBN for example is full of them’
Revelation 17 also has largely been fulfilled all the way to verse 14. Because of false end time teaching many people do not see what is going on as it relates to the bible. Simply because they say these thing happen after the rapture. Jesus said he would take his people at the last day. That means there is no more next day. No more tomorrow. It is over for this planet. Stay home in your private closet (Matthew 6:6) with your King James Bible and sit at the feet of the King of Kings. God bless yoy, in Jesus’ name, amen.
