Lucifer's Abomination of Desolation - The Global Worship of Himself and His Anti-Christ

In the 6000+ years of man’s history, the “pinnacle moment” is the Abomination of Desolation, the key event that will occur in the midst of the Tribulation (a terrible seven-year period that will mark the end of this age). It will be the time when the Man of Lawlessness (i.e., The Anti-Christ) will break his covenant with Israel (Daniel 9:27) and establish himself as Almighty God (Daniel 11:36-37, 2 Thess. 2:2-4, Rev. 13:14-15). He will demand total, absolute allegiance and worship (Rev. 13:16-18).

This master politician of Europe's Socialistic European Community (Daniel 9:26-27) will rise to power, but it isn't until the key event of the Confirming of the Covenant with Israel that He will be revealed as the Man of Sin, Lucifer's Anti-Christ (2 Thess. 2:7-8, Rev. 6:1-2). At this time the Anti-Christ will establish himself as a capable leader and will emerge as the key player on the world stage. Due to the myriad of conflicts, crises and confusion (Rev. 6-9), He will quickly militarize and rebuild Europe's military strength (Daniel 11:38). It is during the first half of this seven-year period that he will win over the world's affections of those who oppose Almighty God's Two Witnesses (Rev. 11:4-6). He will be the darling of the global media; he will be praised as the peace-maker/ fighter and protector of "human" rights (Rev. 6:2). He will be a man of great vision and change (Daniel 7:25), and the world will flock to him as their Savior-Messiah. As the tribulation begins, there will be great wars, famine, pestilence and death (Rev 6). It is during these catastrophic, calamitous events when the world will look exclusively to this man to give them answers, stability and hope they so desperately want and need. Since they have rejected the gospel message and the love of the truth of salvation from their true Creator (2 Thess. 2:10-12), the Beast (Anti-Christ) will step into the vacuum/ void and rise to receive god-like status and devotion.

"It is during the first half of this seven-year period that he will win over the world's affections of those who oppose Almighty God's Two Witnesses"
.
It is during his political apex that a crucial event transpires. He will receive a deadly wound to his head (Rev. 13:3,14; 17:8,11). This event will have a traumatic effect on the godless world (3.5 billion people that are left) at this time. Their great Leader and Savior, their one and only hope for world peace, is dead. The Utopian Dream is now gone; Global Camelot is dead! Great mourning and glowing memorials all around the world will be taking place. As the world inhabitants mope and cannot cope with their misery, godless emotions will run amok. In their rage and emotional turmoil they will seek a scapegoat on which to vent their frustrations. This scapegoat will be God's "Two Witnessess", the Nation of Israel and those believers in the Messiah of Israel much like Nazi Germany in the 1930's but on a global level (see Zech. 14:1-2; Matthew 24:9; Mark 13:11-13). It is during this time of great despair and godless anguish that the “deadly wound” of this man will be miraculously healed (Rev. 13:3)! The world's mourning will turn into great joy at the resuscitation of this man. “He's Alive!,” will be their cry. “Our great Leader and Savior is alive!” It is at this key moment and event that he will absolutely solidify his global allegiance and power base (Rev. 17:11-12,17). His first act of authority is to destroy Almighty God's Two Witnesses (Rev. 11:7-8), which bare witness to the Saving Grace of Almighty God. For three and a half years these Two Witnesses have been unmovable and unstoppable. They have tormented the ungodly world with their message from Heaven: “Repent and be saved!,” and “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!” (John 3:18-19; Rev. 11:10).
.
"He will demand absolute, sole allegiance and worship and requires all the inhabitants of the earth to receive his mark. He will lead in the worship of The Father of Lies: Lucifer the Slanderer"

After the execution of God's Two Witnesses, their bodies are left in the streets of Jerusalem to rot and for all to see. The world will greatly rejoice at the barbaric murder of these two men! These two messengers of Almighty God have finally been destroyed! The godless world will rejoice so much as to send great gifts to one another (Rev. 11:7-10). This execution of God's undefeatable messengers will serve to solidify even more the power and authority of the Beast (Anti-Christ)! The global chant will be: "Who can make war with our great leader?,” (Rev. 13:4,8). It will be a time of great rejoicing for the godless inhabitants of the earth! This rejoicing, however, will be very short-lived.

Parenthetical "Three and a half days later after this brutal murder in the midst of this “Global Mardi-Gras” Festival, God's two powerful witnesses are resurrected in the sight of all the world and are ascended up into Heaven right before their wicked eyes. This very sobering event will send great horror and fear into the hearts of all the world, but they will still not repent and be saved." (Rev. 11:11,12)

With his mighty enemies eliminated and the absolute devotion of the world secured, the ultimate power-grab and godless coup of all time and eternity takes place. This is called The Abomination of Desolation (Matt. 24:15; Mark 13:14-15; 2 Thess. 2:3-5; Rev. 13:4)! The Beast will then commit the ultimate abomination, more so than at any other time in the history of the world. In direct defiance of all who the Eternal God is, he will declare and establish himself as Almighty God! He will set up his image in the Most Holy Place in the rebuilt Temple of God (Matt. 24:15, Mark 13:14). He will demand absolute, sole allegiance and worship and requires all the inhabitants of the earth to receive his mark (Rev. 13:16-18). He will lead in the worship of The Father of Lies: Lucifer the Slanderer (Daniel 11:38-39, John 8:44, Rev. 13:4). At this time many of the Jews in Jerusalem will flee for their lives, remembering what the scriptures taught about this awesome and terrible event (Matt. 24:15, Mark 13:14-15, Rev. 12:6,14). From this point onward (known as the Great Tribulation), exceedingly great global disasters and calamities transpire, to a degree such as never before seen (Matt. 24:21-22, Mark13:19-20). The insane and delusional actions of the world's inhabitants empower Satan's man (i.e., The Anti-Christ) and his agenda for global dominance, which leads to world catastrophe. This godless decision will absolutely make them desolate!

"Since they have rejected the gospel message and the love of the truth of salvation from their true Creator, the Beast (Anti-Christ) will step into the vacuum/ void and rise to receive god-like status and devotion"

The Abomination of Desolation
.
An Abomination, as Holy Scripture defines it, is an idol or false god, making for a false reality. These godless practices are put in the place of the reality of Almighty God and His Eternal Absolutes and Laws (Exodus 20:1-5, Deut 27:15, 2 Kings 23:13, Proverbs 6: 16-19). This rebellious delusion is an absolute abomination; a wretched stench, a most vile odor in the nose. Think of some very vile odors with which you are familiar. That is what our sins smell like before Almighty God. When a godless person makes a false or an imaginary god, or seeks another reality in the light of Almighty God's Eternal Person and attributes as Creator, it is an absolute stench in His nose. It is an Abomination!

This horrific event will thus be the pinnacle of all abominations since the beginning of the creation. This Abomination of Abominations will make absolutely desolate and waste the godless world system and anyone who trusts in and gives their allegiance to the Anti-Christ and receives his mark! (Rev. 14:9-11). This last and final Abomination will absolutely ruin the wicked of this world (Daniel 2:44-45, 7:26-27, Matt 13:30,47-49, 25:41, Rev.19:20). At the Return of Christ and the establishment of His Kingdom, all unregenerate humanity (the unsaved) will be removed from the earth. Their future destination will be the ultimate prison for all eternity: The Lake of Fire, called Hell (Rev. 20:11-15). The Anti-Christ himself, in whom the multitudes of the earth have put all their hope and trust, has led them to the place of ultimate desolation. All those who enter into this final abode truly must “Abandon All Hope!”

The Salvation of Desolation
.
Almighty God's great desire and passion is that all men would repent and be saved from the coming wrath to come (Ezek. 33:11, John 3:16-17, 1 Tim. 1:3-6). Humble yourself, cast down your pride and repent of your trespass against your Creator, and be saved! (Isaiah 55:6-7). Put all your faith and trust in Him. Almighty God wants only the highest and best for you. Don't turn your back on His great love – you will only die in your sins and be made desolate. Almighty God has made wonderful provision for our salvation, which is found only in Christ! He is the Salvation from our Desolation (Romans 7:24-25, Eph. 2:1-10). Do you know the Lord Jesus as your Savior? If not, put your trust in Him today! You will never be the same! Jesus is the only Salvation from every type of Desolation.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! Rejoice!

Randy Rhoads



Many out there in the Christian blogosphere might be wondering on why I am posting on this topic. The thought that might be ringing through people's heads being, "What does Randy Rhoads have to do with biblical Christianity or prophetic events?" Well… my dear friends let me fill you in...
Randy Rhoads who was the original guitarist of Quiet Riot in the 70’s and then came to stardom and the height of notoriety as Ozzy’s… yes… Ozzy’s first guitarist will be greatly remembered by countless fans this March 19th on the 30th anniversary of the plane crash that took and ended so tragically this guitar genius’s life. It is absolutely amazing how time flies. I cannot believe it has been 30 years! To this day I have NEVER forgotten this anniversary. There has always been something about Randy and his untimely death that still haunts me and his person that has had a very special place in my heart. I cannot explain it. I know it sounds odd and corny (especially to believers) but that is my past, what can I say? Before I came to Christ in 1992, I myself was lock stock and barrel sold into the musical industry and a huge cultic follower of Ozzy Osbourne and the rock culture. You could say that I definitely sold my soul to Rock n Roll. I played guitar and played in several bands and all that knew me knew that I greatly admired Randy Rhoads. For what it is worth even my guitar was black with white pock - a – dots! Yes! I was a huge follower.

To this day I have NEVER forgotten this anniversary. There has always been something about Randy and his untimely death that still haunts me and his person that has had a very special place in my heart. I cannot explain it.

To all of us who were (me) and are into the music industry or followed it, Randy Rhoads was a guitar god and a legend. His guitar playing changed all the rules and techniques of his day and brought a more technical, professional and classical approach and style to the rock genre. Randy’s playing and genius in appling guitar scales was unique. Randy was very passionate in his playing and rooted and grounded in music theory and the list goes on. In light of all the rock’s guitarists none has ever moved, motivated, inspired and has been more beloved by an industry than Randy Rhoads. Tragically on March 19th 1982 Randy was killed in a plane crash cutting short his life and his guitar genus. His tragic death left a GAPING VOID in the rock world of that day which has NEVER been filled. The daily countless thoughts of Randy’s fans and admirers ponder and wonder, oh… what could have been? They continually ring throughout the music world even today 30 years later!! Unlike the majority of all rock guitarists in that filthy industry; arrogant, proud, haughty, narcissistic and lewd, Randy was very different.
.
His unique and humble personality has stood out in a narcissistic and opportunist industry and that has left a greater legacy than the genius of his wondrous guitar playing.

In the later months of his life, Randy became highly admired and respected not for just his playing and total professionalism, but for being the complete opposite of those in the rock industry and world. As a 14 year old boy that is what I admired the most about Randy. I could identify with him on that. Randy was humble, kind, caring and considerate and totally not a poser. He was – as silly as this might sound to some - a role model in a godless and decadent world which kids so desperately wanted. He loved to teach guitar and loved his family very much. Many have been greatly influenced by Randy, not just for his playing but for the kind of person that he was. His unique and humble personality has stood out in a narcissistic and opportunist industry and that has left a greater legacy than the genus of his wondrous guitar playing.
/
Randy’s upbringing according to his brother Kelle and his beloved mother was that of a strong “Lutheran” Christian rearing and after years of rebelling against those foundational teachings from his youth, Randy’s conscience was beginning to convict him of being a part of that life style.
.

It has been told by many including Randy’s mother, brother Kelle, Rudy Sarzo and Ozzy himself that Randy in the last year or so of his life wanted OUT of the godless, drug induced rock industry to further a musical career as a classical guitarist. As told by many Randy did not drink or do drugs which is unheard of in that decadent and godless society. It is also said that Randy had become very serious in his personality and that touring with Ozzy had really changed him. I truly believe that the life in that godless industry was beginning to turn his stomach and he wanted out. I personally know (by personal experience) that at the age of 24 (not that I was ever at Randy’s level or sphere) I could not be a part of it anymore and adhere to my conservative “religious Christian” upbringing. I believe that this is what Randy might have been thinking near the end of his life. What is most mysterious and an important insight is that on the night before Rhoads' death, Sharon Osbourne stated that Randy said to her: "I don't think I want to be a rock 'n' roller anymore". Why would Randy ever make that statement at the height of his fame unless he saw what that industry was all about? Randy’s upbringing according to his brother Kelle and his beloved mother was that of a strong “Lutheran” Christian rearing and after years of rebelling against those foundational teachings from his youth, Randy’s conscience was beginning to convict him being a part of that godless life style. Randy’s Brother Kelle had shared that touring and playing with Ozzy was causing conflict in his mind due to his up bringing. Who knows? Out on the road away from friends and family one is more open to evaluate one’s life and what it all means. The big lights of fame and the countless concerts of fans praising you after a while do not seem to satisfy one any more (Eccl.). There comes a time in one's life that one looks outside of themselves for the TRUE meaning of our existence here in time.

One begins to think and evaluate about whom one is; what is the meaning of life, reflecting on one’s past and upbringing and in the fear of one’s accountability to Almighty God (Job 28:28, Prov. 1:7). All of Ozzy’s drunken, drug induced life style, demonic cross waving and anti biblical personality had to affect Randy. It went against all that he was taught growing up and night after night of it must have finally come to a head. It must have been then that Randy shared with Sharon that he wanted out of Rock n Roll after doing it since his early teens. Many of these private ponderings and thoughts individuals keep to themselves as they wrestle with them in their hearts ever seeking to justify them or objectively condemning them. If this was the case with Randy I do not know, it might have been. Whatever the case with Randy there was a change taking place in his life and people saw it. The rest unfortunately is a great mystery and that is what hooks people till this day about Randy Rhoads, the countless thoughts of the unknown and the thoughts of what would have been.

One begins to think and evaluate about whom one is; what is the meaning of life, reflecting on one’s past and upbringing and in the fear of one’s accountability to Almighty God.
The thought that I want to share about this anniversary is that no matter who we are or what we are or the manner of our living whether good or evil, in the end we ALL will give an account to our Creator in that Last Day (Matt. 7:21-23, Rev. 20:10-15). Almighty God is perfectly RIGHTEOUS in ALL that He allows and does not allow in this fallen world (Gen. 18:25, Rom. 3:5). Whether Randy Rhoads had a saving relationship to Jesus Christ in spirit and truth at the end of his life is unknown (John 4:24, 14:6, Acts 4:12, Rev. 21:27). Tragically Randy’s followers on this 30th anniversary all will picture him to be in “heaven”, a “heaven” which is after THEIR OWN subjective fallen design and delusional reality. My dear friend’s it is IN DEATH that our ETERNAL sobering summons to stand before our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator Almighty God to give an account for what we have done in our bodies in this fallen world is called (2 Chron. 19:7, Eccl. 3:17, 12:13-14, Heb. 9:27). We do not want to pretend with our fallen delusional reasoning that we in our own deeds are ABSOLUTELY PERFECT and RIGHTEOUS to stand before our Creator. For who is there that EVER lived (virtuous or vile) that has NOT TRANSGRESSED against Almighty God's ETERNAL PERFECT RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES (John 3:36, Rom. 3:23)? My dear friend, REALITY is desperately needed in this hour and day, for we will all give an account, maybe even tonight perhaps to Almighty God (Rom. 14:12, 1 Peter.4:5). We do not know when our hour will be at hand but we must be ready! ETERNITY is always before us (Job, 27:8, Prov. 10:2, 27:1, Luke 12:19-20, Rev. 20:11-15)!

Almighty God is perfectly RIGHTEOUS in ALL that He allows and does not allow in this fallen world. Whether Randy Rhoads had as saving relationship to Jesus Christ in spirit and truth at the end of his life is unknown.

Almighty God has made ETERNAL provision in His dear and precious Son Jesus Christ for the transgressions of the ENTIRE world, which includes YOU and ME (John 3:16-17, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 John 2:2, 4:10)! That is the REALITY that we as individuals most desperately need to comprehend and understand. May I my dear friend ask you this VERY sobering and pertinent question? How can YOU or I (TRANSGRESSORS of Almighty God’s PERFECT LAW) ever stand before Almighty God our Creator who is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT (RIGHTEOUS)? How can we EVER enter into His PERFECT and HOLY Heaven (Isa. 53:6, 64:6, Rom. 7:24-25, Rev. 21:27)? My dear friends, we NEVER can (Rom. 3:23). It is ABSOLUTELY HOPELESS without God's PERFECT Lamb (John 1:29, 1 Peter 3:18-19, Rev. 1:5). We are in a horrific and desperate NEED for Divine propitiation and a Savior (Rom. 7:24-25, 1 John 2:2, 4:10). My dear friends it is when one places their absolute trust IN Jesus Christ that that individuals transgressions are forgiven and removed and the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ – who died in our stead - is transferred unto us (Rom. 4:5, 5:8)! It is IN Christ where our RIGHTEOUSNESS is found alone not in anything we ever can do (Rom. 7:24-25, 10:2-4, Titus 3:5)!

We are in a horrific and desperate need for Divine propitiation and a Savior.

My dear friends as millions reflect on the 30th anniversary of the tragedy of Randy’s death, may we look OUTSIDE of the box of this fallen and temporal world to see the ETERNAL in light of this little temporal life here on planet earth. My dear friend’s it is all about ETERNITY, will YOU be ready?

Almighty God is absolutely just in all that He does and allows. He has allowed and used Randy’s tragic death to get people’s attention and to teach us all just how brief, frail, tragic and temporal our little existence truly is here on planet earth. The question that we must ask ourselves is will we pay FULL attention? Whether Randy in the last days of his life came to know Jesus Christ as his personal Savior no one knows, but Almighty God PERFECTLY gave him every opportunity to do so, just as He is doing for all alive on planet earth at present (John 16: 8-11, Rom. 2:4). No one will EVER die without having every opportunity to hear the SAVING Gospel of Jesus Christ. For in the END it is OUR own personal freewill that will make our ETERNAL decision (John 1:12, 3:16-17, Acts 16:29-31). In the GRACE and MERCY of Almighty God I have personally made my decision. Though I wrestled with Almighty God for years He wondrously in His ETERNAL love and kindness gave me some time to beat my drum and to exhaust all of my delusional thinking (Rom. 2:4). In the end, Almighty God showed me how desperately I needed Him and how gracious to me He truly was. I have received Jesus Christ and His ETERNAL saving solution for me - a transgressor and sinner - and I have NEVER looked back (John 1:12, 2 Cor. 5:17-21, Eph. 2:1-10)! How could any look back? You see I can absolutely identify with Randy's life, not that I ever lived on his level, but our lives were very similar. The life in that industry may be enjoyable for a season, but there is no way anyone can find fulfillment in it let alone serve Almighty God in it. Almighty God is calling OUT any who will hear His voice and have an ear to hear (Matt. 13:18-23, Mark 4:9). Do YOU have an ear to hear? That is the ETERNAL question at hand.

Almighty God is absolutely just in all that He does and allows. He has used Randy’s tragic death to get people’s attention and to teach us all just how brief, frail, tragic and temporal our little existence truly is here on planet earth.

Whatever choice Randy made about his ETERNITY if he could tell us anything he would communicate to all that loved him how desperately crucial it is for one to have Almighty God's ETERNAL pardon and redemption found ONLY in Jesus Christ - pro or con (John 3:16-17, 36, 11:25-26, Rev. 20:11-15, 21-22:1-5). My friends I am sure many will misunderstand this post and be enraged. They will NOT be objective and evaluated it based on the REALITIES of Almighty God’s Word, but it is my sincere desire that at least one out of the millions will consider the WONDERFUL saving grace of Almighty God. For in the end, that is what this life and brief existence on planet earth is all about! It's up... TO... YOU... to choose. What will it be?

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
