The Anti Christ - Seven Year Reign or Forty Two Month Reign?



















My dear friends, a few more key points and challenges I would like to make to Bible scholars is for them to see how many times the person of the "anti Christ" is found in the first half of the seven year tribulation period in comparison to the second half. The passages referring to the anti- Christ in the second half of the seven year tribulation are much more abundant and display him in a place of total global dominance and authority, while in the first half he is lightly esteemed. The Anti Christ/Messiah does NOT come to ABSOLUTE TOTAL power UNTIL AFTER the 1260 day ministry of the Two Witnesses is completed which will start the second half of the seven year tribulation period - (Rev. 11:3-7,13:1-5); thus he will be absolutely no match for Almighty God's Two Witnesses' ministry nor the dominant man of power as many make him to be during the first half of the seven year tribulation. There are only a few places in which we find the Anti Christ in the first half of the seven year tribulation period and in all cases it is a place of secondary standing (Dan.9:26-27, Rev. 17:8, 10, 11, 2 Thess. 2:3, 6-8).

The Anti Christ/Messiah does NOT come to ABSOLUTE TOTAL power UNTIL AFTER the 1260 day ministry of the Two Witnesses is completed which will start the second half of the seven year tribulation period.

The Two Witnesses of Almighty God - will be at this time GREAT BURNING lights of Divine REALITY and TRUTH unto Israel and the entire world (Rev. 11:3-6) for Almighty God. In a post unregenerate church age world (Rev. 6-16) because of the Rapture of the Body of Christ - John 14:3, 1 Cor, 15:51-57, 1 Thess. 4:13-18, 2 Thess. 2:5-8, 1 John 3:1-4, Rev. 4:1), these Two will ABSOLUTELY DOMINATE the first half of the seven year tribulation period with ALL AUTHORITY, POWER, SIGNS and WONDERS (Rev. 11:3-6). In Revelation 11:3-6 we see the ABSOLUTE TREMENDOUS POWER that these Two Individuals can wield upon the godless nations of the world; including against Gog (the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal) and his confederacy (Ezek. 38-39). Whosoever opposes their Divine ministry for Israel and who are for her total destruction will be immediately dealt with (Rev. 11:3-6). During their Divine ministry they will absolutely TORMENT the world for 1260 days and will be totally UNDEFEATABLE at this time (Rev. 11:3-10)! No wonder that after their 1260 days are fulfilled and then murder at the hand of the beast that the satanically driven world will greatly rejoice with great exceeding joy and give gifts to each other as they now proclaim in its right season (Rev. 11:7-13), "Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him (Rev. 11:7-10, 13:4)?" It will be this common bound of hatred towards Almighty God's Two Witnesses that will be the common tie that binds all nations against the established REALITY of Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS Person, call to global repentance and the 666 alliance of desolation under the resuscitated anti Christ (Dan. 9:27, Matt. 24:15, Rev. 11:3-17, Rev. 13; Rev. 17:7-17).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

God of Wonders - Snow Crystals

The Falling Snow - A Reminder for the Redeemed!

My dear friends with the snow falling at my house I was thinking about the wonders of... snow. Yes snow! Something one either hates or loves but whether you despise it or enjoy it, snow in it's self is an absolute wonder of Almighty God's ETERNAL creative  genius (Job 38:22-23, Psalm 104:24, Prov. 3:19).

As I was thinking of snow... the Bible verse from Isaiah 1:18 once again came to mind.

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."

Oh my dear friends, what a wondrous ETERNAL REALITY and TRUTH  to think on for the child of God as we walk through this fallen "scarlet colored" world in our "scarlet" fallen body (Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:1-2, Rom. 7:7-25)!

Snow is absolutely white and beautiful all together, pure and undefiled and up here in New England we get our fair share of it. There is nothing more beautiful than waking up in the morning after a huge snowstorm that happens in the dark of night! The total landscape is changed and whatever was visible on the ground prior is completely covered. All you can see is the beautiful whiteness of the fallen snow and this has a message to us. Almighty God uses His creation to teach us many important lessons, the most important of these lessons is how Christ's redemptive work cleanses the fallen child of Adam - who is born in a state of transgression and is a transgressor against all that is ABSOLUTE about Almighty God (Rom. 5:12-21). It's by faith alone in Almighty God's PERFECT LAMB and His finished WORK that the transgressor is redeemed, pardoned and cleansed by the shed RIGHTEOUS crimson colored blood of the Messiah of Israel (Isa. 53, Rom. 6:23, Eph. 2:8-9, Heb. 10:21-28, 1 Peter 1:19, Rev. 1:5)!

Almighty God's once PERFECT "white" creation has been HORRIFICALLY transformed and saturated into a darkened scarlet estate.

White is the easiest of all colors to be defiled while scarlet is not. From Adam's innocence, to his fall, to our present day some 6000 years later the white undefiled estate of Almighty God's original creation is anything but white as snow (Gen. 1:31, Rom. 5:12-21). Almighty God's once PERFECT "white" creation has been  HORRIFICALLY transformed and saturated into a darkened scarlet colored estate; non cleansable and unable to be restored to its original estate of white (RIGHTEOUSNESS). The darker the object the less the defiling stains show themselves and such is this present world (2 Cor. 4:3-4). The god of this world has blinded the minds of Adam's fallen unregenerated race and moral relativism and darkness is the prism in which this world views reality (Isa. 53:6). Our world today after 6000 years of accumulated scarlet deeds is absolutely saturated with the irremovable stains of godlessness, decadence, lawlessness and violence and absolutely hopeless for all of humanities unregenerated fallen remedies (Isa. 53:6, Rom. 3). Today our global scarlet estate is received and promoted as the "norm" while the purity of Almighty God's whiteness (RIGHTEOUSNESS) is rejected and looked at as defiled and evil by this world's unregenerate inhabitants (Isa. 5:20, John 3:19-21, 15:18, 17:14, 1 John 3:13). The world's inhabitants of today are subjectively absorbed in their fallen estate and absolutely oblivious to Almighty God's RIGHTEOUSNESS standard (Rom. 1:18-32, 10:2-4).

My dear friends, Almighty God cries out to a scarlet colored world today; "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."

Oh my dear friends, do you personally know what Almighty God has done for you? God the Father has taken our transgressions, which were innumerable and has washed them in the blood of His own dear Son the Lamb and has made us white as snow! When we received Christ into our hearts and do business with God as the Bible testifies and clearly teaches we are then changed from scarlet to snow white. In Christ the child of God has been REDEEMED, JUSTIFIED and RIGHTEOUS!

"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. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 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." (2 Cor. 5:17-21)

"But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:" (1 Cor. 1:30)

My dear friends, may all the precious promises of Almighty God which are found in His Word for you be in your possession to personally know, experience and enjoy.

What a wonder that though our sins were as scarlet we that are now in Christ have been made white as snow (2 Cor. 5:17-21, Eph. 2:10-22, Rev. 1:5). Oh how we need this Divine TRUTH and REALITY this Christmas season my beloved!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Exponential Unemployment Rate Under The Messiah












You’re Fired!

Not exactly the words one wants to ever hear from his supervisor. But what if you were fired from a toilsome and difficult job, in a dirty and dangerous place, only to be hired by a perfect Employer, for a perfect job, in a beautiful place of countless blessing and reward?

The Bible teaches that the Lord Jesus Christ will reign over a literal one- thousand year kingdom on this earth from His throne in Jerusalem one day (Isa. 2:1-4;11, Zech. 14:9-21, Rev. 20:4-5). Sadly, for too many believers, this truth almost seems like a fairy tale because they simply don’t mix faith with the Word of God (Heb. 4:2; 11:1, 6). In today’s study we will consider some of the characteristics of this future Kingdom, things that will and things that will not be done “in all his holy mountain”.

He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron!

As part of His glorious return to earth the Lord Jesus Christ will break both the power of the nations as well as the curse that has been on the earth since Adam’s sin (Isa. 11:1-9; 35, Rom. 5:12-21). Revelation 19:15 says that, “out of His mouth go’s a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.” Psalm 2 as well as the prophetic books of Isaiah, Daniel, and Zechariah all echo this absolute victory that Jesus Christ will bring to His people Israel and in turn to the whole earth (Isa. 24:21-22, Dan. 2:44-45, Zech. 12:3-4; 14:1-3).

But putting down earth’s rebellion is only the start. The Bible also teaches that the One who wore a crown of thorns will also remove the curse from which they grew. Zechariah 14:8-9 tells of this wonderful healing that will begin when the King of the Kingdom is received. "And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one."

How Will We Serve the King?
.
Well first, let’s think about some jobs and industries which will no longer be needed in the Kingdom Age. This of course only represents a partial list, as it is impossible to envision just how fully the curse has affected the earth and how much effort mankind spends fighting the consequences of it (Gen. 3:17-19).

It goes without saying that all employment in immoral industries such as Casinos, Nightclubs and Liquor Stores will be gone. While it’s true that there will be unsaved people born during the Kingdom years, all sinful activity will be held in check by the omniscient and instant judgment of God (Ps. 2:9, Isa. 11:4, Rev. 19:15).

Gone too, will be all branches of the military and all factories that manufacture munitions and weapons of war. Every military academy across the world will close as Almighty God’s Word declares , “he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” Micah 4:3.

While it’s true that there will be unsaved people born during the Kingdom years, all sinful activity will be held in check by the omniscient and instant judgment of God

There will no longer be a need for policemen, law enforcement, night watchmen or guards of any kind. All prisons will be closed and there will be no employment relating to the criminal justice system or courts, whether at the state, local, or federal level. This means no judges, lawyers, bail bondsmen, bounty hunters or private detectives.

Since the only people that will die during the Kingdom years are those who commit an open act of rebellion, there will be no hospitals, doctors, nurses, convalescence homes, emergency responders or search and rescue personnel. Drug stores and the pharmacists’ they employ will no longer be necessary and no one will research diseases, run charities or lobby for a social cause. Both the psychiatrist and the psychologist will find different employment for lack of customers.

While farming will still be practiced, good crops will grow naturally and it will be impossible to grow a weed. Both the pesticide and fertilizer industry will cease and there will be no need for either the veterinarian or the exterminator. Instead of back breaking work, during the Kingdom, farming and gardening will be fun!

Since the weather and climate will be perfect, there will be no weathermen to try and predict it or insurance companies to sell products that protect against it. Manufacturing will cease for any and all products that battle rust, corrosion, mold and decay. Even the cosmetic industry will stop as there will be no battle against the ravages of the aging process.

So what then will believers do and how will they serve the King of kings in the Kingdom?

The Lord Jesus taught that the key was faithfulness. “And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.” Luke 19:17. By inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Paul reminded believers, “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” 1 Corinthians 4:2.

Jesus will give each believer a perfect position in the Kingdom based on their faithfulness to Him today.

The Lord told his disciples, “Fear not little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luke 12:32. God told Israel, “as a young man marries a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.” Isaiah 62:5. The Lord Jesus Christ loves us as his bride (Eph. 5:23-32)!

God promised by the prophet Zechariah, “In that day, says the LORD of hosts, everyone will invite his neighbor under his vine and under his fig tree.” Zechariah 3:10.

What a beautiful description of the coming Kingdom. Just as in Solomon’s day, where every tribe and family of Israel was given their own piece of property by the Lord, Zechariah assures us that the whole earth will be settled in peace and safety when the “greater than Solomon” rules with a “rod of iron” (Ps. 2:9, Isa. 11:4, Matt. 12:42, Rev. 19:15). There will be no need for locks on your doors or high fences to keep your neighbors honest.

Some might be thinking after these reflections on the Kingdom, can anything be greater? You had better be sitting down!

At the conclusion of the thousand year Kingdom on earth, God will create a new heaven and a new earth where all believers of all ages will live with Him forever.

At the conclusion of the thousand year Kingdom on earth, God will create a new heaven and a new earth where all believers of all ages will live with Him forever (Isa. 66:22, 2 Peter 3:13, Rev. 21-22:1-5). As wonderful as we have seen that this earthly Kingdom will be, the ETERNAL dwelling place with Christ will be exponentially better!

The Apostle Paul said, “I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knows) such a one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knows) how that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” 2 Corinthians 12:2-4.

Paul could only say that it would be a crime to try and describe with earthly language the beauty of God’s heaven. If you only had in your language the words, “wet”, “soaked”, “damp” and “moist” could you describe to someone the vast and glorious Pacific Ocean? What would you tell them? It’s really, really damp! It’s a large wet and moist place! To even attempt it would be a crime!

Is it any wonder that God let Satan give Paul a thorn in the flesh after he had been given an eye witness view of such heavenly things (2 Cor. 12:7)?

Let us therefore keep our eye’s fixed on our Savior, remembering the future He has planned for us, while we labor in the valley, introducing others to the Good Shepherd who longs to bring them to such heights as well.

For, “without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Hebrews 11:6

The perfect Boss, the perfect job, perfect co-workers, in a perfect place, with perfect pay, and an endless day…what a Rewarder indeed!

Where is the Love? (In the Seven Year Tribulation)

The seven year tribulation - which will engulf the world shortly - will absolutely manifest the EXPONENTIAL godlessness, lawlessness and violence of mankind as they heap upon themselves the EXPONENTIAL consequences of their rebellious designs against Almighty God and His moral absolutes for this world (Rom. 1:18-32, Rev. 6-16). The demonic wrath and oppression, the wrath of lawless men, and the ETERNAL Wrath of Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS indignation will be manifested to it's zenith and one attribute that will be completely missing during this seven year period will be the outworking of the love of God among mankind.

"Then shall they deliver you up (Israel) to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because lawlessness shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." Matt. 24:9-12

There is a Greek word ἀγαπάω (agapaó) used three different ways, which is used to speak of the love of Almighty God. The LOVE of Almighty God seeks only the ETERNAL highest and best for His creation. The depot and sum of all the love of Almighty God the Father is found in the person of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17). God's love for fallen mankind is outworked in the sending and giving of His Son (1 John 4:9).

The first use of this Greek word is  ἀγαπάω (agapaó) which denotes the love of the will, reason and esteem. This word seeks only the highest and best for an individual in light of Almighty God's person and RIGHTEOUSNESS (John 3:16-17). This word is used only once in Revelation 6-19 referring to the new believer in the Messiah during this period who is absolutely sold out to Almighty God's will and "loves" not their life unto death! These are more than willing to make the supreme sacrifice for the testimony of God knowing full well that in their death they will see their Savior and will be risen again at His return at the first resurrection (Rev. 20:4-6). They love their Savior more than their earthly existence and are more than willing to lay it down that Almighty God and ETERNAL life may be manifested to a godless world.

These are more than willing to make the supreme sacrifice for the testimony of God knowing full well that in their death they will see their Savior and will be risen again at His return at the first resurrection.

The second use of this Greek word ἀγάπη (agapé) denotes the highest and best of Almighty God in action and in outworking. This is the Greek word which is used in Matthew 24:12 which states that this "love or charity" of many will grow cold because of EXPONENTIAL lawlessness and the fruits and effects of it during this time period. The outworking of this love can only be applied by those who have received Almighty God's love (i.e., the Lord Jesus Christ - John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:9). It is a love that the unredeemed cannot use since in their unredeemed estate they are currently rejecting Almighty God's love (John 3:16-17). If they reject God's love, how can they allow it to be outworked in their lives and have it overflow unto others? This Greek word is found no where in Revelation 6-19 indicating that the application of it even from the redeemed is very scarce. Imagine a time with all of the EXPONENTIAL global catastrophic events, wars, famines, pestilences and oppression void of Almighty God's love? Thus it will be in this time and no wonder for when a world rejects Almighty God's love which is found in His Son (John 3:16-17), how can they love or want the ETERNAL  highest and best for their fellow man?

Imagine a time with all of the EXPONENTIAL global catastrophic events, wars, famines, pestilences and oppression void of God's love.

The third use of this word is agapétos which has two special applications: the Beloved, a title of the Messiah (Christ), as beloved beyond all others by the God who sent Him; of Christians, as beloved by God, Christ, and one another (the nation Israel). It is used for the object of Almighty God's ETERNAL highest and best with the benefits of being in the Son of God (the body of Almighty God's Well-Beloved).

This word is no where to be found at all in the book of Revelation let alone in Revelation 6-19. That this Greek word is missing speaks volumes and is further proof and evidence that the Body of Christ (i.e., the Church) is not here during this time and have been Raptured out before this HORRIFIC seven year tribulation begins. If the body of Christ was to go through this Day of Wrath, of a truth we would find the beloved of Almighty God, the Bride of the Messiah mentioned. It is only in the Beloved Son of the Father that a transgressor can be redeemed and placed in the Body of Christ and be called beloved. Oh the WONDERS of His grace and mercy and the wonders of our position in Christ (Eph. 1:3, 2:6, Col. 3:1-4)!!!

If the body of Christ was to go through this Day of Wrath, of a truth we would find the beloved of Almighty God, the Bride of the Messiah mentioned.

Today will you be one who enters into this time period without the love of Almighty God? Dear friend we are at the door to this time period and even a blind man can see it! Now is the day of salvation! Now is the time! May you truly want to know the Lord in Spirit and TRUTH and receive the Father's love which is ONLY found in Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:9)! May it be so!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Pat's Win is a Win for ALL True Americans!






















The New England Patriots Super Bowl win tonight was the greatest come back victory in NFL Super Bowl history and their win tonight was also a major win for ALL true Americans! Let me explain. All the Trump haters in the sports media and in America hate Brady and Belichick because they are winners, overcomers and because they supported Donald Trump and his vision to "Make America Great Again". If Brady and the Pats lost this game tonight the haters of America would have rejoiced because they hate America, winners, true Americans seeking to "Making America Great Again" and the momentum that has taken place in the last two weeks under President Trump. Maybe you might be thinking I am reading too much into this win tonight but I do not. 

 That game was a spiritual picture of how close we were as a nation of losing our freedoms as ordained by our founding fathers under Almighty God.

That game tonight was a spiritual picture of how close we were as a nation of losing our freedoms as ordained by our founding fathers under Almighty God; but in Almighty God's ETERNAL mercy and grace He has spared us as a nation for a season to seek Him, get out His ETERNAL Word of RIGHTEOUSNESS as believers and to be saved if we know not the Lord as our personal Savior (John 1:12, 3:16-17)! We as a people - as the Patriots tonight - had the greatest coming back victory in last November's election as we were at the brink of being destroyed by the Left from within. Dear friends, I truly wonder how many Americans know how close we were as a nation from losing it all! In prayer and in persistence we never gave up on America not knowing what the out come would be. Many of us know that we as a nation can never recover from the EXPONENTIAL out workings of secular liberalism and what it has EXPONENTIALLY done to this nation; but we as true Americans can slow it down a tad so we as believes can give our all to our Savior for His glory and victory in these last days.

May we - in these days of grace and mercy - as victors in Jesus Christ be fully redeeming the time for God's glory in these days for our nation does not have much longer!  

May we - in these days of grace and mercy - as victors in Jesus Christ be fully redeeming the time for God's glory in these days (Rom. 8:28-39, Eph. 5:15-16); for our nation does not have much longer

It is my own personal opinion and I do truly believe that Almighty God had something to do with this amazing Pat's win tonight! For it was a sign to me that Almighty God's grace and mercy still abides on America for a very little season! 

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

It's Still The Lord's Day America




















 Hebrews 10:19-25

 A widely acclaimed film called “Concussion” (2015) portrayed the true account about a brilliant doctor from Nigeria who was working in Pittsburgh. As he examined the brains of dead football players, he discovered a very serious brain condition (called Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy or CTE) caused by repeated concussions.  Victims of this condition can even experience dementia at a relatively young age as well as other serious symptoms, and this condition has been known to lead to suicides.  One notable quote from the film: “The NFL owns one day of the week; the same day the church used to own.” 

In these Laodicean times this is sadly true, but from heaven’s viewpoint Sunday, the day our Lord rose again from the dead, is still the Lord’s Day whether men honor it or not.

In these Laodicean times this is sadly true, but from heaven’s viewpoint Sunday, the day our Lord rose again from the dead, is still the Lord’s Day whether men honor it or not.  It is still the day that God’s people assemble together to exhort one another, and so much the more as we see the day approaching (Heb. 10:25).  It is still the day when God-seeking hearts find within Christ’s local assembly of believers the quiet presence of God, the blessed warmth of a real brotherhood, and the abiding truth of the sacred Scriptures. It is still the day in which believers continue steadfastly in the teaching of the apostles, in fellowship, in breaking of bread and in prayers (Acts 2:42).  It is still that vital time when God’s people come together to be equipped for the work of the ministry and for the building up of the body of Christ (Eph. 4:12).  “Them that honor Me I will honor, and they that despise Me shall be lightly esteemed” (1 Sam. 2:30).  God’s people have always desired to meet with God at His appointed place: “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD” (Psalm 122:1).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
