The Spirit of Antichrist in End-Times!
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
How do we know we are living in the Last Days? Aside from negative effects of sin being unleashed and amplified across the planet thank God that there is His Word – the Bible as a testimony to the times in which we live. Did you know? It was only very recently – just over 3 decades ago - during our generation in 1983, that researchers had begun to assemble the "network of networks" that became the modern Internet. The "Online" world then took on a more recognizable form only in 1990, when computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. And, even DNA was first used in 1986 and that is remarkably only very recent just over 30 years ago!
"…But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase." - Daniel 12:4.
Just consider what mankind has accomplished in the last 100 years, let alone 70; 50; 40; 30; 20 years ago – and even just recently? But now its technology is increasing at an alarming rate! In the recent past we have learned how to harness the power of mighty rivers by building dams to produce electricity; soaring bridges across great channels; drilled deeply into the earth to tap its stores of oil and gas to transport ourselves from place to place with technically advanced air-travel, cars, trains and to heat our homes, and fuel our factories. Man has put satellites hundreds of miles into the heavens and placed men on the moon. We can watch the astronauts on television though they are very far away! The list of our technological accomplishments just seems endless even in Medical as well! Technology, though, is NOT the answer to mankind's problems! Each new technological stride merely fascinates us for a while but fails miserably to give a sense of meaning to our lives. Technology cannot rid us of competition and inordinate desires. Instead, it only seems to accelerate the plunge toward meaninglessness oblivion …and sink lower in the Great Tribulation especially under the coming “man of sin” – the Antichrist! As children of God we will be safe because true believers would then have been Raptured!
To understand more about this, we must look at the entire chapter of Daniel 12 as it begins with a look at "the Tribulation" (the time of great distress) and Judgment Day (names written in the Book of Life and the resurrection of the dead). After this, the angel tells Daniel to; "close up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end." Right after this it is said that people will go here and there (to and fro) and that knowledge will increase! Daniel was instructed to conceal these words and seal up the book until the End of Time! The terms "conceal" (Hebrew, "satam") and "seal" (Hebrew, "chatam") do not mean Daniel is to conceal these prophecies …but rather, because the prophecy is now complete, he is to "keep it intact" and "carefully preserve" the prophecies for future generations of his people."
The "spirit of antichrist" is operating in our world today and is going to intensify the closer we get to the End of the Age! Let’s examine the real meaning of the term "antichrist;" The word "Christ" is from a Greek word "Christos," which exactly corresponds to the Hebrew word "Mashiach" - from which we get Messiah. When we say "antichrist," that actually means "anti-Messiah!" "Anti" is a Greek preposition and it has two meanings and both of them apply; Firstly, it means "against." So, the first operation is "against Messiah" and the Second meaning is; "in place of!" The ultimate purpose is to put a false Messiah in place of the true Messiah. So, we see that the total operation is in two phases. When we begin to recognize that, we will even see that the "spirit of antichrist" is already extremely active today, even in churches who have increasingly become lukewarm to fit in with the un-godly world. But, bear in mind that that is not the end of Satan’s purpose as his purpose is to replace the true Messiah by a false Messiah (1 John 4:2–3) and if we look at this along with the passage from 1 John 2:18-19… Then we can see three forms of antichrist;
(1) There are many antichrists. In the course of human history, MANY antichrists have appeared and been manifested.
(2) There is THE Antichrist who is one specific person. That is the final manifestation and the final product of "the spirit of antichrist" which has not as yet been revealed in human history. We believe that his shadow has already fallen across the stage …but we have not seen the actual person as he has not yet been revealed to us. However, at the End of this Age, Scripture makes it clear, there will be one final, supremely evil, supremely powerful ruler, who will dominate the human race for a brief period, who will be the Antichrist. According Daniel 9:27, the Tribulation begins with the signing of "a peace treaty" between the Antichrist and Israel, intended to be for one "seven," that is, a set of 7 years. But the "seven" is divided into halves: midway through the 7 years, the Antichrist breaks the treaty. The phrase "in the middle" indicates that the 1st half of the Tribulation lasts for 3½ years (1,260 days, using a "prophetic year" of 360 days). Likewise, the 2nd half of the Tribulation lasts another 1,260 days (another 3½ years), for a total of 7 years.
(3) The third form is the "spirit of antichrist." The "spirit of antichrist" is the spirit that operates through every antichrist. And, the Apostle John has given us certain marks of the "spirit of antichrist" which are very important. First of all, it starts in association with God’s people - as we read in 1 John 2:19 John writes concerning the antichrists; "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 they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us." So, antichrist always begins in some way in association with the people of God …but, it does not really belong there …and in due course that will be made manifest and that is one mark of the "spirit of antichrist." Secondly is that it denies that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah, as we see in 1 John 2:22. And, then John continues with the third mark tells us that he is antichrist and one who denies the Father and the Son. This is very important! Antichrist does NOT deny the existence of God just as Islam does NOT deny existence of Yeshua (Jesus) in fact, he claims to be God’s representative. What he does deny is the relationship of the Father and the Son within the Godhead. And, the fourth mark of "antichrist" that is given in 1 John 4 is that it denies that the Messiah has come!
So here we see a timeline: • Sometime after the Rapture of the church, the Antichrist WILL enter a treaty with Israel and this begins the 7-year tribulation. • At the midpoint of the tribulation (1,260 days later), the Antichrist breaks the treaty, desecrates the temple …and begins to persecute the Jews. • At the end of the Great Tribulation (1,260 days after the desecration of the temple), Yeshua (Jesus Christ) returns to earth and defeats the forces of the Antichrist. • During the next 30 days (leading up to 1,290 days after the desecration of the temple), Israel is rebuilt and the earth is restored. • During the next 45 days (Daniel 12:12) (leading up to 1,335 days after the desecration of the temple), the Gentile nations are judged for their treatment of Israel. • The Dispensation of the Millennium begins, and it will last for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:3, 5-6).
The most common belief about the identity of the "Antichrist" is that he will come from a revived Roman Empire… However, it is quite extensively possible that the "Antichrist" will come from the Middle East and be a Muslim …since the plain reading of Daniel 12:4, 9 is that Daniel was to "conceal / hide" the meaning of the prophecy until the End Times. The traditional meaning of who the Antichrist would most likely be is wrong! Christians have believed that the Antichrist would be a Roman for nearly 2,000 years and not taken into account that it may be the "Islamic Antichrist!" To go along with this idea is Matthew 24:15 the meaning of Daniel 12:4 has to be preserved because Yeshua (Jesus) tells us to understand the book of Daniel; "So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel – let the reader understand…" So here Yeshua is speaking about Jerusalem …and today who occupies the Temple Mount? Yes, you see it! It’s the Islamic Al-Aqsa Mosque an "abomination" on top of Mount Moriah!
This can’t mean that Daniel was to preserve his book... since the idea that Daniel was to "conceal" his book - means that "knowledge" about the meaning of the prophecies would grow over time and not that all of it would be hidden until the End-times. People during the time of our Lord understood that the Antichrist was coming …but that did not mean that they had a full understanding of him. The full meaning of the prophecy was still hidden from them and clearly since it was not fulfilled during their lifetimes! We must look at what is happening in our times since there was NO Islam during Daniels time! This is why so many believers must re-interpret the "concealing of the book" to mean that it was "to be preserved!" If the true meaning of the prophecy was not to be understood until the End Times (the days of the Antichrist) this would mean that no one will know who the Antichrist is …or where he will come from until the time of the end was very close. Since so many Christians have believed that the Antichrist would be from Europe and that this idea came along - way before the End Times …then it is probably wrong and that the true understanding of the Antichrist would NOT be understood until the actual End Times – after the "Rapture!"
So, the phrase "knowledge will be increased" is a direct reference to the PROPHECY itself, that is, knowledge of the prophecy will be increased! Many would seek to understand it between Daniel's time and its fulfilment, but its message MUST be revealed and it will be! However, its revelation will NOT occur until the people of God need to understand it for their well-being and God's glory. What are the chances it will be revealed in its fullness today, in our generation, as the "Times of the Gentiles" draw to a close? So where are we on God’s timeline? We are today living in a time when the battle between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan is heating up as never before! It’s a fight between good and evil! This is because we are nearing the return of Christ …and the ultimate destruction of Satan’s kingdom. We as believers were forewarned what it will be like in the Last days - 1 John 2:18–23.
"For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." - Ephesians 6:12. The devil is always behind sugar-coated truth and a slimy tongue and we can be sure of that!
Abortion, homosexuality and Islam are the greatest dangers that the West is facing in the 21st Century and are a clear example of what is happening through Liberalists Socialists and Islamists who use these evils to promote their godless agendas to gain political power. Each of them has opened up demonic portals of entry into our Western Judeo-Christian culture and way of life. These ideologies that have infiltrated the minds of multitudes and are shaped and fuelled by the corrupt and immoral Liberal media.
Abortion is not an opinion about what women have a right to do or not do with their bodies... That's the devil's facade to hide what it really is. Wilful abortion is murder at any point of a woman's pregnancy. It's a demon just like the Old Testament god of Molech to whom people sacrificed babies. It's the same altar where many in – and yes, the Western Nations now worship. We need to think about why are there abortion rights that have killed 60 million babies in the America alone? Not only is it accepted by society, corrupt Media and Hollywood mainly because of fornication and adultery but is now openly on display on Televisions. Yes, there are some cases of rape and so forth, but that's a very small minority. Abortion is one of the main talking points of what people debate on. It's hogwash. Sexual immorality is the biggest reason for abortions …and, people who want this want this as birth-control without the commitment or covenant of a God-fearing marriage and responsibility of the consequences. In fact, what they say by their actions is; "A baby will ruin my happiness or freedom, so kill it!" It’s legalized murder! How much more demonic can it be? The root of this evil is pornography which is an entry point to demonic access and is fuelling the increase of promiscuity and paedophilia, as well as all sorts of perversion? These evils are all linked together. It's Satan's master plan and he is using the worldwide web to deceive people. No baby is just an accident …and our loving God makes NO mistakes. Satan simply hates what God loves!
Sadly, many Churches have most definitely lost its salt - unable to divide between Biblical truth and Political error. At best, it stays silent or at worse today some now even ENDORSE sinful practices. The House of God will be cleaned out. Remember; "For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? - 1 Peter 4:17-18.
How about homosexuality? Why is there such a fear to speak the truth on this subject? Truly we are living in the Days of Noah and Sodom just as the Bible warned us in Matthew 24:37-39 and Luke 17:28--30, Yeshua (Jesus) gave us a clear warning and indication of what this world would be like nearing the time of His Second Coming. Looking at the future time just before His return, Christ saw the scene of this world and it was a mirror of what it was like back in both Noah's and Lot's day! First, we must say that God loves everyone …but he hates the sin! God wants everyone to be saved! Homosexuality is not only acceptable in our Western culture today …but, it's celebrated and legalized. What happened? Demons, through the agency of deceived people and lawmakers, pushed it through and legalized it. When they did so it opened up a larger portal of entry for the release of more demons and the rule of a principality in our nations. As long as the LGBTQ people want their demons, God will let them have them! Why? Because, our God honours the human agency of free will. A debased mind void of judgment will be their most terrible portion (Romans 1:24-28).
Liberals will try to justify their claim that God didn't destroy Sodom because its inhabitants were homosexuals and that He destroyed it because they were inhospitable to strangers; refused to help the poor and because of the Sodomites' greed, pride and adultery -anything but homosexuality! Eventually, homosexuality will destroy the culture of a nation …and bring down the judgment of God as it did in Biblical days of old. Wherever homosexuality is prevalent, and alas, made law, evil rules and reigns and anyone who fights against it will be preyed upon. Let's take homosexuality as an example or as the Bible describes it as "going after strange flesh" (Jude 1:7) like they did in Sodom…. Since 2001, 14 countries have fully legalized homosexual marriage; Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Norway, South Africa, Sweden, New Zealand, Uruguay, France, with parts of North and South America doing the same. And the list is growing all the time! "...For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly." - 2 Peter 2:4-6. Do we see what the LORD is telling us here? He made an example of the wicked people in Noah's day who were filled with evil and showed violence to one another by destroying them with the flood. And, He made an example of the sexually immoral people in Lot's day who practiced homosexuality by destroying them with fire. It is a warning to us that we should not follow in their footsteps by practicing the same sins …otherwise, we too will be destroyed too when Yeshua (Jesus) returns.
"Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision; for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision! - Joel 3:14. God's Spirit is still striving with man, to convict him of sin and to turn to Christ and obey Him and keep His commandments. But, as the verse in Genesis 6 says; "My spirit shall not always strive with man." God will give everyone a chance, which He is doing right now, to turn to Him with all their hearts and to turn away from sin. But, if they choose to continue to ignore the promptings of the Holy Spirit and the warnings from God's Word, then His spirit will be withdrawn and the Day of Judgment will come upon them swiftly and unawares. Sadly, the majority of people on this earth are choosing the "broad way" that leads to destruction! They say you don't need to keep God's Commandments. They say that we can worship God any way we like. They say it is okay to like the things of this world and be a friend of the world. They say that we need to include people from different faiths. They say that homosexuality is okay and God accepts them as they are. Some even say God approves abortion? They say many things that are clearly contrary to the Word of God. Why? Because, they walk after the flesh rather than the Spirit!
The constant indulgence of sin that existed in Noah's day and Lot's day exists today. But, take a look at something else that is true for today; "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." - 2 Peter 3:3-4. This is also pointing to our day today! The world is full of people (sadly even professed Christians) who continue in their worldly lives as if nothing is going to happen. Also, there are many 'scoffers' today who reject the warnings of God and proclaim that; "…all things continue as normal from the beginning!" And, yet the signs are so clear that we are living right at the very End of Times for this world. Yes, we just need to look around at what is accepted today and realize that are clearly living in the Last Days friends!
A main manifestation of the “spirit of antichrist” is ISLAM - the religion of Mohammed… It is very important for Christians to be well-informed about Islam. The Church (with exception of minority few) which is the Body of Christ has today literally become like a whitewashed tomb. It appears to be clean, but inside are dead bones! They have swallowed the Islamic lie that we all worship the same God and that Allah and God are the same! NO! The Islamic religion is under the spirit of something other than the Holy Spirit! It does not acknowledge God the Father! Islam has NO concept of God being a Father, according to Islam any such thoughts are to be accursed and anyone accepting these truths are to be put to death! Mohammed arose in the 7th Century in the Arabian peninsula, claimed to be a prophet, and claimed to receive from an archangel the revelation of the pagan religion which became Islam. He also claimed that Islam was the true fulfilment of the Old and the New Testament and claimed that Jews and Christians and the Gospels had perverted the real truth, but he was restoring it. That is the basic claim of Mohammed. He first believed that because he had rejected idolatry and the claims of Christianity, he thought that the Jewish people would follow him …BUT, when they did NOT follow him, he turned against them and became a persecutor of Jews. It is a tragedy that many Christians in the West have so little knowledge of the dangers of Islam; they misunderstand and underestimate the deception of Islam.
In Moslem countries throughout the centuries, Christians and Jews have been given the title "Dhimmi" - which means second-class people. Islam has a long record of Centuries of murder, suppression and contempt for Christianity and Judaism. Islam bears all the marks of the "spirit of antichrist!" You can talk to the Moslems about Yeshua (Jesus) as a prophet they will give you careful attention. In fact, the Quran acknowledges Jesus as a prophet only …but when you say He is the Son of God, you bring out the most intense, hatred and bitter opposition. On the Temple Mount today stands the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem that is (also called the "Dome of the Rock") built in 1035AD on the site of Mount Moriah and what was once where the Temple of Solomon stood. The Arabic inscriptions around it twice say; "God has no need of a son!" Islam absolutely denies that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Son of God. Now this one will make people angry… The mask to Islam is that it's a nice religion of peace and much of the gullible West has swallowed this lie - hook, line and sinker. Have you ever read the Quran and the ideologies that are written therein? The Quran says: Muslims must not take infidels as friends (3:28); Any religion other than Islam is unacceptable (3:85); Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam (5:33); Terrorize and behead those who believe in Scriptures other than the Quran (8:12); Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels (8:60); The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65); When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5); The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:29); Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood (9:23). So, we can see according to the Muslim’s Quran that Islam is a religion full of hate and that believes it does their pagan god a service by killing all non-Muslims, especially Christians and Jews. Yeshua (Jesus) warned us of such; "They will put you out of the synagogues. Yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he is offering a service to God" - John 16:2.
Yes, there are some Muslims that are good and peaceful - but when push comes to shove, they will stand with their ideology! The more people understand the entire Islamic strategy to kill and conquer, the more society will wake up to it …and the better it will be for the West and its future! This religious war is filled with deliberately thought-out, methodical strategies to take over every nation Islam enters. It's called jihad. This dark Islamic strategy is so much bigger than the average person realizes. The big plan jihadi’s have devised for America who is the Bastian of the Western Nations is to destroy it from within.
We must take note of the similarities between abortion, homosexuality, and Islam…. Abortion is death to the most innocent. Homosexuality is death to the family, normal reproduction and the increase of confusion and perversion. transgenderism came in right behind homosexuality to pile on more confusion, darkness and death upon the human race. Finally, Islam declares death to all nations who do not worship their false god - Allah.
Now let’s explore further the final manifestation of the “spirit of antichrist” which is “the Antichrist” a man of sin. We believe this is something that is in the near future but maybe nearer than we even think. We are given some very important passages of Scripture so that we are not unaware of what Satan is planning. In 2 Thessalonians 2 …where Paul deals with the appearance, revelation, and the manifestation of the Antichrist. He also addresses preparation for the Lord’s return. And, they are very closely intertwined, because the final satanic act before the return of the Lord’s Second Coming (after the Rapture) will be the revealing of the Antichrist. In fact, Paul says that the Lord will destroy the Antichrist with the brightness of His Coming. In 2 Thessalonians 2:1–2 we read; “Now brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us.” The word “coming” here is the word “Parousia” in Greek, which is normally used for the “Second Coming of Messiah!” Paul wrote, “Don’t be shaken or troubled, neither by spirit, or by word or by letter as if from us” …because he knew that many Christians would be prepared to believe specific predictions as to when the Lord would return! Signs for our times!
Now let’s look at… 2 Thessalonians 2:3 - “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will NOT come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.” The term “falling away” in Greek is “apostacia,” meaning an “apostasy” - a deliberate rejection of revealed truth! This verse offers two titles of the Antichrist. Firstly, he is the “Antichrist” and “man of sin” or “man of lawlessness.” He is the supreme embodiment of man’s rebellion against God and rejection of God’s laws. He is also called the “son of perdition,” the one who is headed for a lost eternity. Judas Iscariot is the only other person in the New Testament who is called “son of perdition” as he was a false apostle.
And, we have one other important name in Revelation 13:1 - “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” This is part of a vision that Apostle John had in this revelation and here we see another title of the Antichrist which is “the beast” - and person who is going to arise to whom Satan (the dragon) will give his power. Why will Satan give his power to this person? Because, that will enable this person to gain dominion over the entire human race and to persuade the entire human race to do the one thing that Satan wants most and that is to worship him rather than Almighty God – the God of the Bible – our God. This is his goal. He has been working on this patiently for many centuries, and he is very near to the achievement of his goal at this time in history. Notice as we read the entire Revelation 13 that one of his heads had been “mortally wounded” and healed! There is a sort of false resurrection here! Nobody knows whether this person will be assassinated - but he will apparently be dead …and he will return to life.
The Bible mentions 666 as the “Number of the Beast” … “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” - Revelations 13:18. This number actually indicates a name. The number “666” is the numerical value of the name of the coming Antichrist. According to John in the Bible, those who are wise can get an insight into the Antichrist's identity by knowing the number of his name. There is coming a time when every person will have to receive “a mark” or “a number,” without which we will not be able to fly in a commercial aircraft, enter a federal building, drive a car, open a bank account, receive health care, or hold a job. The technology is already in place …and it is happening right now. Economic, political, and religious conformity can now be enforced with technology which is already available. Just as the UN pressures “rogue states” into conforming through economic sanctions, a one-world political system, a one-world economy, and a one-world religion will also be enforced through individual economic sanctions. A tiny microchip inserted under the skin can replace the need to carry keys, credit cards and train tickets. Think this is impossible today? No! Thousands of Europeans who have had microchips embedded into their hands are at risk of their personal data being ‘used against them’. More than 3,000 Swedes have microchip implants that let them pay for shopping, enter buildings and book train tickets. According to Revelation 13:15-18 …every person will be forced to have a number, without which they will be unable to buy or sell. If we want to have a job, we would have to have a valid, government recognized ID, and be in the global database. South African’s already produce ID’s for almost everything …but requirement this will be a global system. No job? No buying or selling? When this system is activated worldwide, the mechanism will be in place for implementation of the “Mark of the Beast” that was prophesied 2,000 years ago. It is very important that all of us understand that “the Mark of the Beast” is not a possibility, it is an absolute certainty. We are going to face it! We MUST make sure that our names are in the Lamb’s Book of Life!
In Revelation 13:6–7 we see the Antichrist take action… “Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. And it was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.” He is the open challenger of God and is not a secret enemy as he shakes his fist in the face of Almighty God. And, who do you think granted him permission to make war with and overcome the saints of God? We presume it is God, which is a very sobering thought. Let’s never forget that Christianity is not all easy victory. Now look at verse 8; “All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have NOT been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” What a dramatic statement! The entire human race will worship him except those God has chosen for Himself. Let’s look again at; 2 Thessalonians 2:3 so that we can stay vigilant and awake to the times that we are living; “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day (the coming of the Lord) will not come unless the falling away (apostasy) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed!” Always remember that the church is the bulwark against error and so Satan has to penetrate the church before he can break through with his error. We believe this “falling away” is taking place in the world today and don’t believe this existed in any previous century and that we are already confronted with the apostasy.
If we go back to Revelation 5:5, John had seen a vision of a scroll in the Hand of God, and, there was no one who was found worthy to open the scroll. So, John was weeping. But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to lose its seven seals.”
And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain. John was looking for a lion, but the lion is a lamb... That is a deliberate contradiction. God’s appointed ruler does not have the nature of the beast – the Antichrist. Yeshua (Jesus) has the nature of the Lamb and He alone is highly exalted and seated at the right hand of Abba Father. He above all others as our Saviour laid down His life in humility and meekness even by way of the Cross. He didn’t resist His accusers and persecutors ...but simply gave His life for us freely 2,000 years ago so that we can say today; “because He lives and has prepared a place for us - we live in eternity!” That is our blessed hope (even in these End of Days where it’s growing darker with sin and rebellion against God) …we know what the end will be for God’s children.
We believe the church in these days is going to need to display the same nature of our Lord …and make no mistake that it will surely be tested in persecution! Persecution of Christians has already begun and times won’t be easy. Just as we have also seen that the people in the Tribulation will worshiped “the beast” fully convinced that it was hopeless to make war with him! What sort of circumstances will convince ALL the world” that it is futile to fight back? Fear! When you consider the age of technology and weaponry in which we currently live, it is easy to believe that the situation pictured here could be very close!
We most sincerely believe that God WILL bless you for your faithfulness and love for His land and His chosen people. God’s Word is true! He IS watching to see how the nations are treating His people. God will have mercy on Israel through Gentile believers acting as mediators towards them. This is one of the most amazing revelations ever given to the church – an opportunity to do something that carries the highest priority in the heart of God. Yet, sadly, so few have seen the potential and the rewards of serving God in this manner - as agents of mercy to Israel and the Jewish people! Israel was and still is despised today and a despised nation continually turning away from God BUT nothing ever altered the purpose of God for that nation. The despised element is always a noticeable element in the purpose of God. When the Saviour of the world came, He came of that despised nation; like Israel… He Himself was “despised and rejected by men,” …and there is that despised element; “…things that are despised God has chosen,” 1 Corinthians 1:28. Now, more than at any time is the time to support Israel and the Jewish people - the Lord’s Brethren! We are witnessing the nations and people turning their backs on Israel. Thank you once again for your prayers and generous support!
We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,
