II Thessalonians 2:3-4, 7-12 speaks of these things.
3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first(people leaving the church because of its false doctrines and hypocrisy), andthe man of sin(the body of Satan) is revealed, the son of perdition(the diabolical opposite of the body of the Son of God),
4 who opposes and exalts himselfaboveall that is called God or that is worshiped, so that hesits as God(did Satan not declare he would do this?) in the temple of God(I Corinthians 3:16 says, whose temple we are), showing himself that heisGod. (Isaiah 14:14 I (Satan) will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will belike the Most High.’)
7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
8 And thenthe lawless one will be revealed(Satan through his body), whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth(prophetic praise, prophetic prayer, the apocalyptic message concerning the end times, insight to the scriptures) and destroy with the brightness of His coming(through His illuminated, 8th day children of oil, His body).
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders(this is again the body of Satan, his people),
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish(My people die for lack of knowledge God says), because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this reasonGod will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
12 that they all may be condemned(Old King James says be damned!) who did not believe the truth but had pleasurein unrighteousness.
I John 3:4
4 Whoevercommits sinalsocommits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness(the lawless are automatically on the wrong side).
I John 2:18
18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even nowmany antichrists(plural, not one man)havecome, by which we know that it is the last hour. (Paul thought it was bad in his day, he should see the immensity of today's sin!)
There are also many people out there that are so involved in daily life that they could care less about what is going on over the rest of the earth. The trumpets are blowing alarm to awaken these lukewarm ones to see what is happening before it is too late!
38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark(too late),
39 and did not knowuntil the flood came and took them all away, soalsowill the coming of the Son of Man be. (Wake up people!)
11 Put on the whole armor of God, (why?)that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. (People must understand the plan of their opponent or they will end up blaming God for what happens in this world and for sure end up on the wrong side. Remember God is not part of this world!)
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (It is a spiritual battle.)
II Corinthians 13:5informs us,
5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith(operating in truth). Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified. (This scripture desecrates the doctrine once saved always saved and the false teaching, God is in everyone!)
The knowledge Adam and Eve asked for continues to misguide mankind through both the world's schools that obviously perpetuate this knowledge as well as her churches making sure humanity continues to be shaped and molded to the image of their unseen mentor.
II Corinthians 4:4
4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old(another false doctrine exposed, Satan was the serpent in the garden), called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Let us read fromRevelation 17:1-6.
1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,
2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a womansitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns(symbolic of all authority in this world).
4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet(she looked holy yet powerful), and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls(she is beautiful to see), having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. (She will fool you with her quiet little churches and her gorgeous edifices, something for everyone!)
5 And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (So everything God sees as an abomination has its roots in religion!)
6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
Satan also functions through his wealthy hierarchy to control the world's individual governments, and is forcibly pulling them rapidly into a one world government with the idea of making the people they govern slaves of his kingdom. This combination is referred to as the beast. The two, Babylon, who is quickly becoming a one world religion and the beast, hold hands, to rule and fight against the Lamb, to rule the world, but like all evil powers will end up fighting each other!
Let us continue readingRevelation 17:7, 12-16.
7 But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. (7 is the number of the perfected and 10 the number of completion. Satan's world has perfected evil, Satan's plan for world takeover is about completed and ready to fight the Lamb.)
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet(waiting for the kingdom of darkness they are to rule to overcome the Kingdom of Light), but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. (Everything Satan can throw into this final battle for the earth and its inhabitants will be implemented!)
13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authorityto the beast(everything will be at Satan's disposal).
14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.” (This is who I want to be among, how about you?)
15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues(she rules over the majority of the world).
16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these(Satan's royalty, his sacred seed) will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire(power will always challenge power!).
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
What is her end?
8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine(Wow! Sure do not want to be a part of her!). And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.
And the beast? What is that end?
Revelation 19:11-18, 21
11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun(we are about to see the end of those that serve the enemy, that helped build his kingdom); and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,
18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.” (I pray all will come out of the world's churches, have no part in supporting the world's governments, her schools and turn their backs on the world's pleasures before this happens.)
21 And the rest were killed with the sword (the truth they refused and rejected would judge them and find them guilty and condemned to die) which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
The King of Kings, the Lord of Lords is victor through His Body. His will, His law is lovingly carried out by His Bride.
Hopefully some of the questions concerning the world have been answered, but there remains several personal questions only we ourselves can answer! Who really do I love? Do I love the God of the universe, our Creator, our Father and Greater Husband or the god of the world church as defined by those taught by the knowledge of the enemy? Have I done the best I can to pull away from the world and her government, religion, banking and educational systems? Is my life visible evidence I have chosen the Kingdom of Light and serve the one true God I fully believe is King over all kings and Lord over all lords?
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, comingdownout of heaven from God (she was designed by heaven), prepared as a bride adorned for her husband (matured by God, she will replace Babylon for what is left of mankind).
3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God(we are His house) is with men(on earth), and He will dwell with them(not Satan and the evil hordes he leads), and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
