Archive for the ‘– End Times Time-Line’ Category


We know from Scripture that satan loves to copy the things of God (ie: when Pharaoh’s magicians copied and performed the same signs and miracles that Moses performed — Exodus 7:11-12) and so we know that in the End Times, satan will be copying the things of God in order to deceive the world … and the Church! … into thinking that he is God.

Even as Jesus is currently preparing for Himself a Bride, holy and pure, who loves Truth, who lives in the power of the True Holy Spirit, and who is readying herself for Christ’s Return, we can see that satan is also preparing for himself a false bride.  A false bride who is not concerned with holiness, who is rebellious to the commands and the Word of God, who doesn’t love the Truth of God, who operates in witch-craft and lying signs and wonders, and who is being prepared for anti-Christ’s appearing!

This satanic bride is a false bride, springing up from the midst of the True Bride, even as foretold by the Apostles in the New Testament.

Yes, There Will Be A Great End Time Revival …
but it will be Satanic, as foretold in 2 Thessalonians

1 – Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him (= the Rapture!), we ask you, brothers, 2 – not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.
3 – Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion (the “apostasy” NASB; the “falling away” KJV) comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 – who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.  5 – Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 – And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. 7 – For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. 8 – And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. 9 – The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 – and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 – Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, 12 – in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
– 2 Thessalonians 2

The Man of Lawlessness will not be revealed until there is a great “falling away” from Truth, within the Church … a deliberate rejection of revealed, basic, and orthodox Truth … and as many are aware, this great falling away from the basic Truths of the Word is currently taking place within every denomination of the Church!

Satan is not so concerned with getting the world to fall for his deceptive ways because he already has them bound up in deception: the deception of liberalism, or socialism, or atheism, or islam, etc.  Yes, he will deceive the entire world into believing he is the man of the hour, the one to bring world peace, and the prophesied coming Messiah according to many of the world religions, but first, he must get the True Bride to fall for his deceptive lies!

He needs a weak and disobedient Church who cannot discern between right and wrong any longer.  He needs a Church who is not concerned with the Word of God, but who is a lover of self.  Such a Church will fall easily for his sweet and seductive lies!  Such a Church, who is more concerned with self and comfort and ease, will allow an “anything goes” doctrine to infiltrate the Church and take the Church over.   And it is this breaking away from Truth which allows sin and lawlessness to grow and abound, not just in the Church but also in the world.

Apostasy IS here and apostasy is growing and many are departing from the Truth of Scripture, and this great apostasy that is growing reveals to True Believers that the revealing of anti-Christ … and the Return of Jesus … is drawing near.

When Truth … which is Jesus (John 1:1) … is removed from Christ’s Church, a vacuum is formed leaving room for another to take the place of Jesus, and it is anti-Christ himself,  the Man of Lawlessness, who is getting ready to take the place of Jesus.

For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 – who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.
– 2 Thessalonians 2

Apostasy IS in full-swing but something worse is coming!  

The Man of Lawlessness is preparing for his appearance and he will appear to be adored and to be praised and to be worshiped by all people … even amongst those who call themselves Christians!

He will bring the answer to world peace:

2 – For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 – While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
– 1 Thessalonians 5

He will come with magnificent signs and wonders:

9 – The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 – and with all wicked deception
– 2 Thessalonians 2

And he will come and deceive many:

 24 – For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
– Matthew 24

Where will anti-Christ come from?

According to Scripture, it appears that the anti-Christ will come out of the Church:

18 – Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. 19 – They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.
– 1 John 2

Notice how John states, “They went out from us”?

Also, when comparing Scripture with Scripture, we see that the term “son of perdition” (KJV) or “son of destruction” (ESV) was only used one other time in Scripture, when speaking of Judas, a false disciple:

While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
– John 17:12, KJV (or “son of destruction”, ESV)

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
– 2 Thessalonians 2:3, KJV (or “son of destruction”, ESV)

It seems that the anti-Christ could be a false disciple and come from the very ranks of the Church!  A person who LOOKS like a True Christian, who TALKS like a True Christian, and who even performs signs and wonders … like Judas! … yet who is a deceiver!

The outcome of the End Time apostasy will be a Harlot Church, ready and eager for her false christ!

For even as Christ is preparing His True Church whom He will Return for, so satan is preparing his false church whom he will appear for!

Both the True Christ and the false christ have brides!

One is spotless and holy and filled with the Holy Spirit and the other is filthy, and lawless and filled with the apostate spirit which stands against God’s Holy Truth:

1 – Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons
– 1 Timothy 4

1 – But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 – heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 – treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 – having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.
– 2 Timothy 3

The False Church will be filled with love-of-self and greed and idolatry, empowered by witch-craft (lying signs and wonders) and will persecute and kill those who belong to the True Church! (Revelation 17 & 18).

Heads Up Saints!  Keep your eyes on the prize of Jesus Christ, our soon to Return conquering King!  Keep reading and obeying the Word of God so that you can avoid this great End Time deception!  And keep yourself pure and spotless:

but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. 3  – And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.
– 1 John 3

7 And they asked him, “Teacher, when will these things be, and what will be the sign when these things are about to take place?” 8And he said, “See that you are not led astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’ and, ‘The time is at hand!’ Do not go after them.
– Luke 21, ESV

Note:  Jesus said, “See that you are not led astray”

It seems that the matter of being deceived is up to us!  Therefore choose carefully which preacher you listen to, and please continually read your Bible so that you can weigh all teachings against the Word of God!

 

10 Then he said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. 12But before all this they will lay their hands on you and persecute you …
16You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and some of you they will put to death. 17 You will be hated by all for my name’s sake. 18But not a hair of your head will perish. 19By your endurance you will gain your lives.
– Luke 21, ESV

Note:  Jesus said, “But before all this they will lay their hands on you and persecute you“.

Persecution will come to the Body of Christ, world-wide, before the great and fearful wars and earthquakes predicted here, in Revelation and elsewhere.  Some of our brothers and sisters are already experiencing this persecution in the Middle East and in Africa.   Pray for them today … to remain faithful to the End, to have the grace to forgive their persecutors, for miraculous intervention should the Lord will, and for them to speak boldly the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His coming Kingdom to their persecutors … for tomorrow you may need such prayers yourself.

20“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not those who are out in the country enter it, 22for these are days of vengeance, to fulfill all that is written. 23 Alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! For there will be great distress upon the earth and wrath against this people. 24 They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive among all nations, and Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
– Luke 21, ESV

For those who are left behind and miss the Rapture (the Rapture is revealed in Matthew 24:31 and discussed HERE), they will see Jerusalem surrounded by armies and they will witness the most terrifying rage and anger being poured upon Jews that the world has not seen before.  It will be the time of the “Gentiles” trampling Jerusalem underfoot!  God uses armies of the world to do His bidding (see HERE and HERE) so the natural eye will see armies of men surrounding Jerusalem and slaughtering the Jewish people.  Do not think that there is no spiritual connection to such devastation!  This will actually be God’s doing … His Wrath being poured out, as He told usas He purifies His people from the sin of rejecting His own Son, and as He gets them ready to receive Messiah Jesus in His Return to rule the Earth.

 

34 – “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
– Luke 21, ESV

Question:  Can you see that you are actually able to avoid … or “escape” … “ALL these things that are going to take place” on the Earth?

“How?” you might ask.

By obeying the Word of God and doing what it says to do; by watching that you are Rapture Ready and not letting yourself become side-tracked or “weighed down with dissipation or drunkenness or the cares of this life”…

dis·si·pa·tion

noun \ˌdi-sə-ˈpā-shən\

: the process of slowly disappearing or becoming less

: the act of using all or a lot of money, time, etc., in a foolish way

: behavior that shows you are interested only in pleasure, money, etc.

… and by watching that you are not deceived into believing God is something other than what the Bible tells us about Himself.

Watch out for deception, dear readers, and watch out for a carnal or sin-filled heart which loves the pleasure of this world more than loving God and His commands and purposes for our lives.  Love God with all that is within you, and your neighbor as much as you love yourself.  And pray that you will be “counted worthy to escape (or avoid, or miss) all these things that shall come to pass” (the KJV, Aramaic Bible in Plain English, Jubilee 2000, AKJV, Douay-Rheims, Darby Translation, Webster’s, World English Bible, and the Young’s Literal Translation all state “counted worthy to escape“)

Please pray this also for me.  Thank you.
