You are in this final generation, so let His Word, that weapon that you can use daily help you out in your life. Let's go to:
Luke 21:6 "[As for] these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."
Luke 21:7 "And they asked Him, saying, "Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign [will there be] when these things shall come to pass?"
Luke 21:8 "And He said, "Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in My name, saying, "[I] am [Christ];' and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them." (KJV)
So right off the bat here, the subject is when will Jesus the Christ return and what will go down. He explains to you right up-front that many will come in my name saying they are Christians, or have a message or whatever else. If something does not align with the Word of God, it is not from dear God.
Check me out and anyone else claiming that they are from Him. Friend, this is serious business here. We are talking about not just your flesh life, but your eternal soul. So, at the end finally this false Christ will be the devil, or son of perdition, as here in:
Thessalonians 2:1 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto Him,"
II Thessalonians 2:3 "Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition."
II Thessalonians 2:4 "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself the he is God."
II Thessalonians 2:8 "And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:"
II Thessalonians 2:9 "[Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all powers and signs and lying wonders." (KJV)
So right here you are told that before, not after or during, the Lord, Jesus the Christ returns, there will be a falling away. The son man of sin, the son of perdition, the devil, will be sitting in God's Temple on Mount Zion in Jerusalem claiming to be God. He is after the working of Satan because he is Satan. There is no one else in the Word that is named to perish from within as here in:
Ezekiel 28:12 "Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; [Thou] sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. "
Ezekiel 28:13 "Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone [was] thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created."
Ezekiel 28:14 "[Thou art] the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee [so]: thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire."
Ezekiel 28:15 "[Thou wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee."
Ezekiel 28:16 "By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire."
Ezekiel 28:17 "Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee."
Ezekiel 28:18 "Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, [it] shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee."
Ezekiel 28:19 "All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never [shalt] thou [be] any more.'‘" (KJV)
Right here you see the role Satan had before his fall. He was one of the cherubims that covered God's Mercy Seat until he decided to take God's Place and sit in the seat! So his outcome is to burn from fire from within and be no more. To perish, as if he never existed. Satan will fool lots of people with the supernatural abilities to do signs and wonders. He will perish and wants lots of people with him. Will you be fooled like the millions of people on this earth that will be, or will you listen to dear God? Your choice, it's your life. Let's go on here:
Luke 21:22 "For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled." (KJV)
So what are the days of vengeance. This is from:
Hosea 9:1 "Rejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as [other] people: for thou hast gone a whoring from thy God, thou hast loved a reward upon every cornfloor."
Hosea 9:7 "The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; Israel shall know [it]: "the prophet [is] a fool, the spiritual man [is] mad," for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred." (KJV)
visitation (Strong's 6486) visitation (in many senses, chiefly official); (pass participle of Strong's 6485) to visit (with friendly or hostile intent), to oversee, muster, charge, care for, miss or deposit, avenge, do judgment, overseer, punish, or (call to) remember or visit.
This is dear God's day of vengeance and the word visitation same thing, hostile or friendly. How will it be for you? Will you follow the world after the devil thinking it is Jesus the Christ, or wait for Him? This "a whoring" is idolatry. Anything that pulls you from time spent with dear God is an idol. When the instead of Christ, anti-christ, Satan sits in dear God's spot in Jerusalem and the whole world whores after the devil, how do you think that will make God feel? Just by Him calling it a whoring should give you an
idea! There are many false prophets out there and people saying they are spiritual. Are they going by the Word of God? Let's continue here in:
Luke 21:23 "But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people."
Luke 21:24 "And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem [shall be] trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled." (KJV)
So right here Jesus is telling woe to those that are accepting the one world system and worshipping the devil and nursing along his work when he returns claiming to be Christ. Imagine how dear God feels through His Son returning after a long time for a spiritual virgin bride and then finding here whoring with someone else–Satan! He is not too glad. Let's see where this is written here in:
Revelation 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (KJV)
So right here it is spelled out to you so you cannot miss who it is. It is Satan, the Devil, the serpent from the beginning in the Garden of Eden, who will deceive the whole world with his fallen angels and one world system. It will not be very hard for him to do since many people today have no idea of what dear God's Plan is what it says in the Word. Many systems teach the people you do not need to know what Revelation says or the Old Testament since you will be out raptured out of here. The word "rapture" is not in the Word, check me out. Dear God lets you know how He feels about his teaching here in:
Ezekiel 13:17 "Likewise, [thou] son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy People, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them."
Ezekiel 13:18 "And say, ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the [women] that sew pillows to all head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of My People, and will ye have the souls alive [that come] unto [you]?"
Ezekiel 13:19 "And will ye pollute [Me] among My People for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to My People that hear [your] lies?"
Ezekiel 13:20 "Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘Behold, I [am] against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make [them] fly, and I will tear [them] from your arms, and will let the souls go, [even] the souls that [ye] hunt to make [them] fly." (KJV)
It is very clear He is AGAINST those that hunt souls to make them fly and cover His outstretched arms! As He tells you right here they teach these lies so they can make some money off the people. Jesus the Christ tells you Himself He came here not to change one sound of one letter of His Word here in:
Matthew 5:18 "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."
Matthew 5:19 "Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." (KJV)
And then He goes on to say those that break the commandments, and teach men so they are against Him. Let's see where else He feels about people changing His Word. Let's go to:
II Thessalonians 2:10 "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved."
II Thessalonians 2:11 "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:" (KJV)
So back to when the son of perdition returns, many will follow him because they have not been taught, or didn't care or have the time to find out. Those that believe the lies of man, like flying away or you don't need to understand the Bible, will be given even more strong delusion. As you read right here it is from dear God so HE WILL send even more delusion! He does not like this! Let's check out more about how dear God feels about fake teachers. Let's go to:
Jeremiah 23:1 "Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture! saith the LORD."
Jeremiah 23:2 "Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed My people; [Ye] have scattered My flock, and driven them away, and have not visited [them]: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD."
Jeremiah 23:10 "For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force [is] not right."
Jeremiah 23:11 "For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in My house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD."
Jeremiah 23:12 "Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery [ways] in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, [even] the year of their visitation, saith the LORD." (KJV)
visitation (Strong's 6486) visitation (in many senses, chiefly official); (past participle of Strong's 6485) to visit (with friendly or hostile intent), to oversee, muster, charge, care for, miss or deposit, avenge, do judgment, overseer, punish, or (call to) remember or visit.
So dear God is showing you His emotions and how He feels about false pastors, teachers or prophets calling them adulterers leading the children down the wrong path right to Satan. T he time addressed here again is the visitation or day of vengeance. Who's side will you be on? Let's go a bit further here:
Jeremiah 23:14 "I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that one doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto Me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah." (KJV)
So dear God is calling this time when He returns when the whole world is in bed spiritually with the devil thinking that he is God, worse than Sodom and Gomorrah. Now how did He feel about those cities? Let's go to:
Genesis 18:20 "And the LORD said, "Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;"
Genesis 18:21 "I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according tot the cry of it, which is come unto Me; and if not, I will know."
Genesis 18:24 "Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;"
Genesis 18:25 "And He overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground." (KJV)
So dear God burned both cities down to nothing. What do you think He will do to those fake prophets and teachers? We already know what He will do to Satan after he makes his appearance claiming to be God here in:
Revelation 19:19 "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gather together to make war against Him That sat on the horse, and against His army."
Revelation 19:20 "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." (KJV)
Will you be someone in dear God's army standing up for Him, or following the false prophet, Satan, claiming to be Jesus? So when Jesus the Christ returns the role of false prophet and the one world system will be thrown into the lake of fire. The mark of the beast is accepting the devil as Christ and
buying into his one world system. The catch is you must worship him in order to do so. How easy are you bought off? This world will pass away, but dear God is forever and His Word as here in:
Mark 13:31 "Heaven and earth shall pass away; but My words shall not pass away." (KJV)
So who are you going to believe? Dear God or man? It's your decision. Let's finish up here:
Jeremiah 23:19 "Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked."
Jeremiah 23:20 "The anger of the LORD shall not return, until He hath executed, and till He have performed the thoughts of His heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly." (KJV)
Dear God is talking directly to you. You are in these latter days and He is telling you the Word will go down as written. Let's go on:
Jeremiah 23:21 "I have not sent these prophets, yet [they] prophesied:"
Jeremiah 23:22 "But if they had stood in My counsel, and had caused My People to hear My words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings."
Jeremiah 23:25 "I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed.'‘"
Jeremiah 23:30 "Therefore, behold, I [am] against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal My words every one from his neighbor."
Jeremiah 23:31 "Behold, I [am] against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, ‘He saith.'"
Jeremiah 23:32 "Behold, I [am] against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause My People to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet [I] sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this People at all, saith the LORD." (KJV)
He is telling you right here many lies that are out there. For example, the "rapture" theory based on a mentally ill woman dream. It got going when two pastors picked it up to get more people into churches. It is not in dear God's Word and HE is against this. People coming and saying that they are prophets and say that God says this or that, He is against this! If it is not written in His Word, it is not from God, but the enemy, the devil. Satan is relying on people's weaknesses and knows everyone's. So laziness, lack of interest whatever the case he is using and will use it. That is why it will be very easy for the whole world to be deceived. Dear God is bringing His kingdom back here, but first His wrath here in:
Revelation 14:7 "Saying with a loud voice, "Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him That made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." (KJV)
This hour is the Lord's Day right after the hour of temptation when Satan sets up his kingdom here on earth here in:
Hebrews 3:1 "Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;" (KJV)
So the subject here is consider what the High Priest, Jesus the Christ, wrote in the Word to you. Let's go on:
Hebrews 3:7 "Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, "Today if ye will hear His voice,"
Hebrews 3:8 "Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:"
Hebrews 3:9 "When your fathers tempted Me, proved Me, and saw My works forty years."
Hebrews 3:10 "Wherefore I was grieved with that generation; and said, They do alway err in [their] heart; and [they] have not known My ways."
Hebrews 3:11 "So I sware in My wrath, They shall not enter into My rest.") (KJV)
which is from:
Psalms 95:6 "O come, let us worship and bow down: Let us kneel before the LORD our maker."
Psalms 95:7 "For [He] is our God; And [we] are the People of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. To day if ye will hear His voice."
Psalms 95:8 "Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, [And] as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:"
Psalms 95:9 "When your fathers tempted Me, Proved Me, and saw My work."
Psalms 95:10 "Forty years long was I grieved with [this] generation, And said, "It [is] a People that do err in their heart, And [they] have not known My ways:"
Psalms 95:11 "Unto whom I sware in My wrath That they should not enter into My rest." (KJV)
So right here just like the Children of Israel taken to the promised land and led by God, wandered around in the wilderness. So because of their disbelief, they did not enter. You are in that final generation and the promised land is coming, through Jesus the Christ, when He returns. Before that, the false-Christ, the son of perdition, Satan, will return. Will you get lost in the wilderness or stick with God's Word? These things are written for you to learn by example and for our warning especially in these last days as here:
I Corinthians 10:11 "Now these things happened unto [them] for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come." (KJV)
So where will you be? Will you be like these here in:
Revelation 13:4 "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, "Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"
Revelation 13:5 "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months." (KJV)
All prophesies regarding the devil are with moons, like here with months, but we know right here this time was shortened as here in:
Revelation 9:5 "And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment [was] as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man." (KJV)
So you see here the time has been shortened to five months as Jesus foretold here in:
Matthew 24:22 "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." (KJV)
So after this goes down, let's see what happens here in:
Revelation 14:9 "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand,"
Revelation 14:10 "The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:"
Revelation 14:12 "Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." (KJV)
So if any one worships Satan and takes part in his one world system, so in his forehead, in his mind, and does the work of Satan, or in his hand, will drink the cup of God's wrath. Are you someone that will keep God's commandments and know that the false Christ is coming first or get caught up like everyone else on earth and worship the devil? It's your life! Let's finish here in:
Revelation 17:1 "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, "Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters." (KJV)
So the angel is explaining this to us. Let's go on:
Revelation 17:7 "And the angel said unto me, "Wherefore didst thou marvel? [I] will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns."
Revelation 17:9 "And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth."
Mountains always are nations and horns representing powers. The woman is the city Jerusalem. Let's go on:
Revelation 17:10 "And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, [and] the other is not yet come; and we he cometh, he must continue a short space."
Revelation 17:11 "And the beast that was, and is not, even [he] is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition." (KJV)
The final one we are concerned about is the son of perdition. The five kings are kingdoms in the past that ruled over location where Jerusalem is. When this was written one was not yet come, Israel as we know it today since 1948. The next, seventh, beast Satan when he returns on earth instead of Christ. Then finally, after this earth ages he is released a short time after the milenium when Christ returns here in:
Revelation 20:7 "And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,"
This is the Lord's Day as here in:
II Peter 3:8 "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." (KJV)
Revelation 20:8 "And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number o whom [is] as the sand of the sea."
Revelation 20:9 "And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them."
Revelation 20:10 "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." (KJV)
So right here Satan in the role of false prophet bringing his one world political system to earth is the seventh. Let's go on:
Revelation 20:11 "And I saw a great white throne, and Him That sat on it, from Whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them."
Revelation 20:12 "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book of] life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."
Revelation 20:13 "And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works."
Revelation 20:14 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."
Revelation 20:15 "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (KJV)
So here Satan again is the eighth and will be released only as himself to see who will follow him or God at the end of the thousand year period, and those that follow him all will experience the second death which is final or perish from ashes from within and no one will remember them.
Let's go back to:
Revelation 17:15 "And he saith unto me, "The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nation, and tongues."
Revelation 17:16 "And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire."
Revelation 17:17 "For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil His will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, unto the words of God shall be fulfilled."
Revelation 17:18 "And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth." (KJV)
So the one world system will come out of the people. The horns represent power and will be the fallen angels cast down from heaven with Satan setting up his one world system and the woman the city Jerusalem. Where will you stand in all of this?
Finally, His day is coming. God has waited a long time for all this to go down, but He does want His kids to come to repentance as here in:
II Peter 3:9 "The LORD is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." (KJV)
So do you want to be someone that He will be glad to see when He returns, or someone that wants rocks to fall on them for being so ashamed that they were deceived by Satan himself, as here in:
Revelation 6:15 "And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;"
Revelation 6:16 "And said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him That sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:"
Revelation 6:17 "For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (KJV)
Will you be standing? The choice is yours.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Word,
