BEWARE THE LAMB

THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST

Anti-christ

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

the beginning of the end
THE BEGINNING OF THE END…
  • The Rapture => The world is thrown into chaos.
  • The Antichrist rises to power (in Europe ???). Leads a 10 government confederacy
  • Russia and other nations invade Israel. Gog / Magog…
      • To take a spoil – Oil ??? Before or After the covenant is signed ???
  • God defends Israel and destroys all but 1/6th of the invading force.
    • 1/4th of the world’s population die as a result of this war.
      • Rev 6:1-2 Riders on the White and the Red Horse
        • Anti-christ comes to power enforcing peace – but soon there is War on the earth….
  • A covenant (or treaty) is confirmed by the Antichrist with Israel (and others).
    • Confirmation of this covenant with Israel begins the time period know as the “Tribulation Period”;
  • Daniel’s 70th Seven begins. The Tribulation is 7 biblical years; divided into 2 halves.
  • 1,260 days, 42 biblical months (30 days each), 3 ½ biblical years
    • 1st half: The Time of Jacob’s Trouble / The Beginning of Sorrows
      • Forms and reforms His political power base pulling down 3 of his 10 ‘horns’
      • Is ‘assassinated’ and restored to life – The 2 Witnesses are ‘killed’
      • Destroys the ‘Old Religions’ and substitutes worship of himself as God…
    • Midpoint: “Abomination that causes desolation”
    • 2nd half: The Great Tribulation / The Wrath of God is poured out
      • Anti-Christ still has political troubles and wars to fight; enemies to subdue
        • Targets Israel and the New Believers
  • Nations move on Israel to put down Anti-christ’s rule but seeing the impending return of the Lord Jesus Christ; ally themselves to fight the Lord. The armies are destroyed at Armageddon.
  • Jesus judges the nations - The Millennium begins

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

check your watches at the door
Check your watches at the door…
  • The “Tribulation” does not begin immediately following the Rapture.
    • Note: Following Rev 3, there are no more admonishments to the Church to “Watch” – Why ??? Rev 4 ushered the “Church” to the Throne in Heaven.
  • The beginning of the Tribulation is signaled by some sort of covenant (or treaty, or agreement) being confirmed. The Antichrist, Israel, and others are involved –
    • Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
  • Before this covenant can be confirmed (signed or agreed to), the Antichrist must be revealed (come onto the world scene) and establish himself as a world leader.
    • Rev 6:1-2 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
    • How long from the Rapture to the confirmation of the covenant between the Antichrist and Israel?"

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

how much longer daddy
How much longer Daddy ???
  • How long between the “Rapture” and the beginning of the “Tribulation” ???
    • …somewhere from one day to perhaps several years.
  • Jesus gives us a clue in Matt 24:
    • Mat 24:32 - 36 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

Anti-Christ

The 1st Seal

Rev 6:1-2 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

God allows a man to appear on earth who will pose as a "savior of the world.“

the Man of Sin: Anti-Christ see 2 Thes 2”The Restrainer” is gone…

Matt 18:18

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

(Matt 16:19)

Harpazo

The Covenant with Death

Tribulation

The Man of Sin Revealed

Cf: Rev 6:1-2

Gog / Magog & Company

Cf: Ezek 38-39, Rev 6:3-4

The Day of the Lord

The Restrainer Removed

The Apostasy

For that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first v.3

He who now [restraineth] will [restrain], until He be taken out of the way v.7

And then shall that Wicked One be revealed v.8,

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

2 thes 2 1 17
2 Thes 2:1-17

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and byour gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

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; 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 that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

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: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 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. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

time out a note on 2 thes 2 3
Time Out !! A Note on 2 Thes 2:3
  • G646 apostasia ap-os-tas-ee'-ah
    • departure from, “apostasy”: falling away, forsake.
  • Only twice in KJV: 2 Th 2:3 = falling away, Acts 21:21 = forsake,
    • Acts 21:21And they are informed of thee, that thou teachest all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs.
  • “the falling away”, “forsaking” or “apostasy,” Who is forsaking what?
    • Matthew 24:10-12 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. [11] And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. [12] And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
    • John 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
      • These describe decisions and conditions not forsaking of previous positions
  • Could this event we have called the ‘apostasy’ and thought was associated with a ‘forsaking’ and ‘falling away’ from truth really refer to the ‘forsaking’ of the earth by the Church; the ‘departure’ of the Church from the earth ???
  • Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,
    • except there come a falling away first, ….

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

1 Cor 15:51-21 1 Thes 4:16-18

1Co 15:51-52 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Th 4:16-18 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 8 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

matt 25 1 13 who s going with us
Matt 25:1-13 > Who’s Going With Us ???

When the Rapture happens, there will probably be many people not taken that thought they would be.

1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

rev 2 18 29 thyatira into great tribulation
Rev 2:18-29 > Thyatira…into great tribulation

18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. 25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star.

29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

rev 3 1 6 sardis watch for me or be suprised
Rev 3:1-6 > Sardis: Watch for me or be suprised

Rev 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Rev 3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Rev 3:4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Rev 3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

rev 3 7 13 philadelphia keep you from the hour of temptation
Rev 3:7-13 > Philadelphia: …keep you from the hour of temptation

7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

rev 3 14 22 laodicea don t get too comfortable or self satisfied
Rev 3:14-22 > Laodicea: Don’t get too comfortable or self satisfied…

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

luke 13 23 30 it s not what you ve done but who s you are
Luke 13:23-30 > It’s not What you’ve done – but Who’s you are…
  • 23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved?
    • And he said unto them, 24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
  • 25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
  • 26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
  • 27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
  • 28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

matt 7 13 27 who you gonna believe
Matt 7:13-27 > Who You Gonna’ Believe ???

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

the coming world leader
The Coming World Leader
  • Most of what we know is from the Old Testament.
    • Many of the references are rather subtle .
  • Some believe this leader will be a Jew:
    • Eze 21:25-27; Eze 28:2-10 (of the circumcision);
    • Dan 11:86,37; John 5:43 (allos, not heteros: thus, a Jew, not a Gentile.);
      • He is easily received by Israel, John 5:43;
  • The Leader will be the seed of Satan:
    • Gen 3:15; Isa 27:1; Eze 28:12-19; Rev 13.
  • Some believe he is Judas Iscariot reincarnated: Psa 55:11-14;
  • Death & Hell: Isa 28:18, Rev 6:8; Matt 12:41-43; John 17:12;
          • 2 Thes 2:3; Acts 1:25, with Rev 11:7

antichrist who is that masked man
Antichrist: Who is that masked man ???
  • SATAN...MASQUERADES AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT
    • 2 Cor. 11:14 … for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
  • Anti-christ: son of Satan, THY SEED - (literal or figurative???)
    • Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
    • Also check out Genesis 6 again – ‘sons of God’ / ‘daughters of men’, etc.
  • Jesus returns at the close of the Tribulation on a white horse.
    • Rev 19:11-13 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

    • Daniel 2:40-43 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. [41] And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. [42] And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. [43] And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

Surprises come because you don’t expect them…1 Thes 5:1-11

1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord JesusChrist, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

    • a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
    • And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and
    • he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and
    • shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
  • And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand;
    • and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and
    • by peace shall destroy many:
    • he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
  • 26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.
  • And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.

antichrist confirms the covenant the tribulation begins
Antichrist Confirms The CovenantThe Tribulation Begins
  • This day (day one of the Tribulation) is a special date.
  • Some form of a covenant, treaty, or agreement will be confirmed for seven years.
  • The two main parties involved that are mentioned in the Scriptures are Israel and the Antichrist.
    • Others will also be included, but who they are is not certain.
      • The provisions of this agreement are not made clear in the Scriptures, however, it appears, it may be some form of peace treaty of protection agreement.
  • The exact day that this covenant is confirmed, or enforced, is the first day of the Tribulation.
  • Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
    • Isa 28:14-22 …15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:….

Acts 17:11 1 Thes 5:21

isa 28 14 20 god warned israel the agreement will not stand
Isa 28:14-20  God Warned Israel — The Agreement Will Not Stand
  • God tells Israel, regarding the covenant with the Antichrist,
    • Isa 28:14-20 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem! 15 Because you have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol (the place of the dead) we have an agreement -- when the overflowing scourge passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and in falsehood we have taken shelter.
  • Check the promise of God in vs 16-17.
  • The agreement that Israel thought would be their protection is going to be their downfall.
    • Isa 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol (the place of the dead) shall not stand; when the overwhelming scourge passes through, then you will be trodden down by it. 19 As often as it passes through, it [the enemy's scourge] will take you; for morning by morning will it pass through, by day and by night. And it will be utter terror merely to hear and comprehend the report and the message of it [but only hard treatment and dispersion will make you understand God's instruction].
  • For those that understand what has happened, for those that can understand the report (or message), it will bring sheer terror. The fulfillment of this prophecy appears to happen at this point.
    • Isa 28:20 For [they will find that] the bed is too short for a man to stretch himself on and the covering too narrow for him to wrap himself in. [All their sources of confidence will fail them.]
  • Their covenant with Antichrist represents the bed they’ve made for themselves. The bed is too short. It will not accomplish the purpose that Israel thought it would. It will not save them. It cannot protect them. The covering that is supplied by the Antichrist is too narrow. A person cannot wrap himself in it for protection. The only true protection a person can really have is Jesus. All other beds are too short, and all other coverings are too narrow. All other coverings will pass away.

antichrist takes over
ANTICHRIST TAKES OVER
  • An extremely proud, boastful, intimidating, imposing person. He is unique.
  • He arises out from from among ten kings, rulers, or representatives who yield to him their authority and power.
    • Most believe these kings represent the European Union or at least what it will become…
  • He takes over and becomes the confederations leader.
    • This puts him in the position to confirm (or sign) the covenant (or agreement, or treaty) with Israel and others.
  • At the time he is taking over or at some time shortly thereafter, he plucks up, causes to fall, or overthrows three kings (rulers or representatives of nations).
    • ??? because they oppose him in some way ???
  • The ten kings, or rulers, have not yet received a kingdom and have not yet begun to rule, but will receive authority as kings for ‘one hour’ with the Antichrist.
    • They hand over their power or authority to the Antichrist.

    • [5] And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.
    • [6] After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

(Eze 37:9) Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

(Dan 7:2) Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.

(Dan 8:8) Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.

(Dan 11:4) And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

(Zec 2:6) Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the LORD.

(Mat 24:31) And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

(Mar 13:27) And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

(Rev 7:1) And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

    • Satan, the ‘great dragon’ is furious. He knows that he has only a short time left. Satan makes war against the saints.
    • The ‘abomination of desolation’ occurs. An image of the Antichrist is set up on a wing of the temple. Those that will not worship it will be beheaded. The temple is defiled or made unholy.

The Book of Daniel
  • Often with the major prophetic events, God will provide a miniature or a sneak preview of the event in history.
  • Jesus in Matt 24:15 does that…he refers to the prophecy in Daniel 9:27 that in His day is yet to take place and references it to an actual event in Israel’s history – which was also still future event when Daniel was written. Jesus looks back to that historical event calling it by name to describe and use it as a recognition point for the future event that is still yet to come…

Antichrist Stops The Sacrifices And Oblations
  • During the first part of the Tribulation, a temple will be built in Jerusalem. Sacrifices and oblations will begin as in olden times.
  • In the middle of the tribulation week, the ‘risen’ Antichrist moves into the newly built temple in Jerusalem and stops the Judaic sacrifices and oblations.
  • IN THE MIDST OF THE [70th seven] WEEK [which is the Tribulation] HE [the Antichrist] SHALL CAUSE THE SACRIFICE AND THE OBLATION [or offering] TO CEASE [or end] - Dan 9:27.
  • Oblation:

The Abomination of Desolation
  • The sacrifices and oblations cease: 2 Thes. 2:4.
    • To cease they must begin again. This requires a Temple (or at least a Tabernacle) to be available and consecrated in Jerusalem.
      • (Preparations have already begun, the furniture, clothes and worship utensils are ready now!)
  • Historical precedent:
    • 167 BC, Antiochus IV ("Epiphanes") desecrated the Temple, sacrificing a sow on the Altar and erecting a pagan idol in the Holy of Holies;
    • It incited the Maccabhean Revolt, which succeeded in overthrowing his rule and in rededicating the Temple.

  • Mat 24:15-20 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

  • The Jews that keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ are told to flee fast, without any hesitation, when they see the abomination of desolation.
    • Those that do not obey this command can expect to be caught, persecuted, and killed.
    • Satan tries to kill them while they are fleeing, but God protects them.
    • God has a place prepared to take care of them, to nourish and feed them, for the last 3 ½ years or 1260 days.
  • Multitudes will be slain for their faith in Jesus; however, many others will shrink back in their faith under this intense pressure. Persecutions against the true believers in Christ will become almost indescribable.

  • Rev 13:18 - Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six
  • In this verse we have the name of the beast given by the symbol of the number 666.
  • The Arabs invented figures; unique characters used to represent numbers; in the 10th century.
  • Before then letters of the alphabet were used for numbers.
  • The Greeks in Homer’s time, or soon after, are believed by some to have assigned to their letters a numerical value corresponding to their order in the alphabet: thus,
  • α was 1, because the first letter; and ω 24, being the last.
  • The greek books of the Iliad and Odyssey are numbered this way and have been marked using this systme by Homer himself, or by some person who lived near his time.
  • The Romans adopted a similar system of representing numbers which wa based on the ancient greek system.
  • The Roman numeral system as we know it today cannot be traced to any very ancient source.
  • What can be proved is, that in Greek writings in Roman times it was in use dating to before before the commencement of the Christian era.
    • There are coins extant marked of the 2d, 3d, 14th, 30th, 35th, 38th, 39th, 40th, 41st, and 42d years of Augustus Caesar, with the numerical letters preceded by L or Λ for λυκαβας , year, thus: LΒ, LΓ, LΙΔ, LΛ, LΑΕ, LΛΗ, LΛΘ, LΜ, LΜΑ, and LΜΒ

Greek alphabet, with the numerical value of each letter

Rev 13:18 - Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six

  • The method of representing numbers by letters of the alphabet, resulted in the practice among the ancients of representing names by numbers.
    • Examples of this kind abound in the writings of heathens, Jews, and Christians.
  • Where this practice of counting the number of a name or phrase first began cannot be determined.
  • It is enough for our purposes to show that it was being used in the apostolic age and there are many histrocial proofs and examples of this.

Having thus shown that it was a practice in the apostolic age, and subsequently, to count the number in words and phrases, and even in whole verses, it will be evident that what is intended by 666 is, that the Greek name of the beast (for it was in the Greek language that Jesus Christ communicated his revelation to St. John) contains this number.

The Latin Kingdom: “Ἡ Λατινη βασιλεια”

Rev 13:18 - Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six

Many names have been proposed from time to time as applicable to the beast, and at the same time containing 666.

The most famous one is from Irenaeus and has been approved of by almost all commentators who have given any sort of tolerable exposition of the Revelation.

‘THE LATIN KINGDOM’

No other kingdom on earth can be found to contain 666.

That the beast is the Roman Empire – or – the Latin Kingdom (as it was called in the period around 100 A.D.) which is reformed and revived in some fashion is proved by several Scriptural descriptions. Now note that the common name by which it was called and which was in use at the time this was written is counted to be the number 666.

Rev. 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

  • The beast, his image, and the number of his name, appear to be distinct - referring to different things. What is meant by the “name of the beast” is different from “the number of his name”.
  • The beast from the sea and the beast from the earth, have the same title.
    • Both function to serve the dragon:
      • – one beast exercises political / secular rule;
      • – the other religious rule
    • Both working in concert to serve the purposes of the ‘dragon’; Satan himself.
  • The name of each is equally “Ἡ Λατινη βασιλεια”, the Latin kingdom.

Rev 13:16-17 And he [the second beast from the earth] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the [first] beast [from the sea] , or the number of his name.

  • Those whom the false prophet does not excommunicate [by executing] or those who are not put out of the ‘Church of the Anti-christ’, will have to receive the ‘mark’ of the first beast – his name or number
    • They will by choice worship the first beast and have willingly accepted his mark identifying and aligning themselves with the number of his name.
  • A person having the name of the beast evidently means they are a subject of or in subjection to the Anti-christ’s Revived Roman empire – the Latin kingdom. They will carry his ‘Passport’ – his mark; name; and/or the number of his name.
  • Those that have the mark, name of the beast, or the number of his name, are those who have placed themselves in subjection to the Anti-christ’s Roman empire, secular or spiritual.
  • It is possible that all those that are in subjection to the secular - political power are not ‘believers’ in the Anti-christ’ at heart. This would distinguish those which have ‘received the mark’ from those which have ‘the name of the beast or the number of his name’ and are simply under his political secular authority. However, it ultimately results in the same thing…”Convert or die…”

Rev. 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

  • The saints of God are presented as getting the victory over the beast as well as over the image – his idolatrous religion, the mark and the number of his name.
    • The two distinct antichristian empires: political – secular and the religious.
  • That the two-horned beast is the one which is associate with taking the number.
  • Rev. 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.
  • In Rev 19:20, nothing is said of the number of his name, which is so prominently mentioned in Rev 15:2. In Rev 15:2 nothing is mentioned of the false prophet.
    • What is termed in Rev 15:2 as the number of his name, in Rev 19:20 is called the false prophet.
  • The two-horned beast, or false prophet, is also designated by the phrase the number of his name; and consequently it is this second beast which is numbered. Taking the mark or number is to ‘join his church’.

Rev 13:18 : “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath a mind count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is six hundred threescore and six.”

  • It is said the number of the beast is the number of a man;
  • It is not the ten-horned beast, the secular-political empire.
    • This is consistently symbolized by “The Beast” ruled by the single ‘little horn’ that came up out of the 10 horns and who removed 3.
  • It can be no other than the two-horned beast, the new religion lead by the second beast, The False Prophet, to enforce worship of the first beast’s image.
  • It is a new religion, replacing all others that came before it, preaching an idolatrous, antichristian system of doctrines, and calling it Christianity. This is the second beast.
  • Rev 17 details its rise to power…

Rev. 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Rev. 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.

THE PRIMARY ERRORS of ROMAN CATHOLICISMBRACKETED NUMBERS ARE REFERENCES TO THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH TEACHES

2. Initial justification is by means of baptism [1262-1274].

3. Adults must prepare for justification through faith and good works [1247-12491.

5. Justification is furthered by sacraments and good works [1212, 1392, 20101.

7. Catholics guilty of mortal sin are justified again through the sacrament of penance [980, 1446].

8. Salvation from the eternal consequences of sin is a lifelong process [161-162,1254-1255].

9. Salvation is attained by cooperating with grace through faith, good works, and participation in the sacraments [183, 1129, 1815, 2002].

10. Faith is belief in God and the firm acceptance of all that the Church proposes for belief [181-182,18141.

12. The sacraments are necessary channels for the continual infusion of grace. They bestow grace in virtue of the rite performed [ 1127-1129].

13. Grace is merited by good works [2010, 20271.

14. Venial sins do not incur eternal punishment [1855, 18631.

15. Serious sins must be confessed to a priest [1456-1457].

16. The priest forgives sin as a judge [1442,1461].

THE BIBLE TEACHES

2. Justification is by faith alone (Romans 3:28).

3. God justifies ungodly sinners who believe (Rom 4:5). Good works are the result of salvation, not the cause (Eph 2:8-10).

5. Justification is the imputation of the perfect righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21). In Christ the believer has been made complete (Colossians 2:10).

7. There is no second justification. Those whom God justifies, He also glorifies (Romans 8:30).

8. Salvation from the eternal consequences of sin is an instantaneous and secure act of God coinciding with justification (Romans 5:9).

9. Salvation is attained by grace through faith apart from works (Ephesians 2:8,9). Good works are the result, not the cause, of salvation (Ephesians 2:10).

10. Saving faith is the entrusting of oneself to Christ as Lord and Savior (Romans 10:8-17).

12. The child of God is the constant object of the Father's grace (Romans 5:1,2).

13. Grace is a free gift (Romans 11:6).

14. Every sin is punishable by eternal death (Romans 6:23).

15. Sin is to be confessed directly to God (Ezra 10:11).

16. No one can forgive sin but God alone (Mark 2:7).

THE BIBLE TEACHES

17. When God forgives sin, He completely forgives (Colossians 2:13; Isaiah 43:25).

18. Jesus made perfect satisfaction for all sins (1 John 2:1,2).

19. Jesus releases believers from their sins by His blood (Revelation 1:5).

20. Purgatory does not exist. Jesus made purification for sins on the cross (Hebrews 1:3).

21. Those who sleep in Christ need no help. To be absent from the body is to be at home with the Lord (2 Cor 5:8).

22. The believer can know that he has eternal life by the Word of God (1 John 5:13).

23. Eternal life is the free gift of God (Romans 6:23).

24, There is salvation in no one but the Lord Jesus Christ, "for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must he saved" (Acts 4:12).

25. The Last Supper was a Passover meal. Christ's blood was poured out for our sins at the cross (1 Peter 2:24).

26. The bread and wine are symbols of the body and blood of Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-25).

18. Acts of penance make satisfaction for the temporal punishment of sin [1434,1459-1460].

19. Indulgences dispensed by the Church for acts of piety release sinners from temporal punishment [1471-1473].

20. Purgatory is necessary to atone for sin and cleanse the soul [10301031].

21. Poor souls suffering in purgatory can be helped by those alive on earth offering up prayers, good works, and the sacrifice of the Mass [1032,1371, 1479].

22. No one can know if he will attain to eternal life [1036, 20051.

23. Eternal life is a merited reward [1821, 2010].

24. The Roman Catholic Church is necessary for salvation [846].

25. The Last Supper was a real sacrifice in which Christ's blood was poured out for our sins in the cup [610-611, 621, 13391.

26. The bread and wine become the real body and blood of Christ [1373-13771.

27. Christ's body and blood exist wholly and entirely in every fragment of consecrated bread and wine in every Roman Catholic church around the world [1374,1377].

33. The Mass makes Christ present in His death and victimhood [1353,1362,1364,1367,14091.

34. At each Mass, the priest re-presents to the Father the sacrifice of Christ [1354, 13571.

35. The Mass is an unbloody sacrifice which atones for the sins of the living and the dead [1367, 1371, 1414].

36. Each Sacrifice of the Mass appeases God's wrath against sin [1371, 14141.

37. The faithful receive the benefits of the cross in fullest measure through the Sacrifice of the Mass [1366, 1407].

THE BIBLE TEACHES

28. The bread and wine are symbols which help one to remember Christ’s sacrifice for our salvation (Luk 22:19).

29. God forbids the worship of any object, even those intended to represent Him (Exodus 20:4,5; Isaiah 42:8).

32. The sacrifice of the cross is finished (John 19:30).

33. Christ cannot be made present in His death and victimhood, for He has risen and is "alive forevermore" (Revelation 1:17,18; Romans 6:9,10).

34. Christ presented the sacrifice of Himself to the Father "once at the consummation of the ages" (Heb 9:24-28).

35. Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins (Leviticus 17:11; Hebrews 9:22).

36. Only the once-for-all sacrifice of the cross fully appeased God's wrath against sin (Hebrews 10:12-18).

37. Believers receive the benefits of the cross in fullest measure in Christ through faith (Ephesians 1:3-14).

Psalm 10:1-18

Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? [2] The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. [3] For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. [4] The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. [5] His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them. [6] He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. [7] His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. [8] He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. [9] He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. [10] He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones. [11] He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it. [12] Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble. [13] Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it. [14] Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless. [15] Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none. [16] The Lord is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land. [17] Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear: [18] To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.

[3] For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head. [4] He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever. [5] His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him. [6] For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance. [7] For the king trusteth in the Lord, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved. [8] Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. [9] Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them. [10] Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men. [11] For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform. [12] Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them. [13] Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.

 Philip. 2:10-11 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Dan 12:8-13 And I heard,

but I did not understand.

Then I said, O my lord,

what shall be the issue

and final end of these things?

9 And he [the angel] said,

Go your way, Daniel,

for the words are shut up and

sealed till the time of the end.

10 Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be tried, smelted, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but the teachers and those who are wise shall understand. [Dan. 11:33-35.]

11 And from the time that the continual burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days. [Dan. 11:31.]

12 Blessed, happy, fortunate, spiritually prosperous, and to be envied is he who waits expectantly and earnestly [who endures without wavering beyond the period of tribulation] and comes to the 1,335 days!

13 But you [Daniel, who was now over ninety years of age], go your way until the end; for you shall rest and shall stand [fast] in your allotted place at the end of the days. [Heb. 11:32-40.]
