America The Perversion; HEY CHRISTIAN! You are NOT An American FIRST… You Belong to An Everlasting Kingdom That is Bringing Dominion to This Entire Universe..READ and REMEMBER
Since the late 1700s and early 1800s there has been a nationally mortifying infection via men like Thomas Jefferson (rewrote Gospels in the Bible without miracles), John Dewey, Charles Finney and more recently Lyndon B. Johnson and Barack Hussein Obama into our leadership. This nation has been covertly conditioned and upon the infection taking hold, blinding the targeted populace to the Truth of righteousness and wickedness;
Isaiah 5:20 (NASB) 20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
…. From childhood they have been overtly prepared for the blaspheming, belittling, subjugation, compartmentalization and finally the hatred and worse, of our God in Jesus Christ our only Savior. This objective was and is undertaken, espoused and promulgated by the minds at the pseudo-controls of this nation’s political then theological then educational apparatus & helm. In the face of so called men of this nation this infection of wickedness has spread.
Isaiah 5:23 (NASB) Woe to those….. 23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!
From the tombs of the public schools rise the walking dead, young males which are self serving, unconcerned with the responsibilities God Created them for. These wraiths, unwilling to lay down their wants, needs and desires …even their lives for the ultimate Grace that can fall upon a man…. to serve the One who created him in order to carry out that blessed and humbly glorious role which he was formed as a male human being in God’s image to live out unto God; in carrying out his majestic part in the holy plan….. offering his strength unto the promulgation of Righteousness . They have bought into the lie that the world has something to offer them and thus they orderly file into the schools, colleges, businesses , pseudo-churches, fleshly families …… The spiritual slaughterhouse of the United States of America…..
They enter the tomb filled with dead men’s bones in the kindergarten built by John Dewey in the early 1900s. Do we traveled the world, China, Russia and other centers of communism such as the Communist faction in France which were replete at that time because humanism had claimed that man could solve all of man’s problems and create a utopia on earth; the diametric opposite of the Truth the Bible graciously provides us from our Creator and Sustainer. God has removed our mighty men, our warriors, our wise men (diviner); God has removed our judges and given us in judgment, jailers on the bench of anti-law, trapping us in their power to alter, unto service of their own perversion and hatred of God, the righteous notions and Truths which the laws of this nation once carried; God has removed the true prophets of this day who need no miracle to establish the truth of God’s Word but have the Bible righteously translated to establish each Righteous, True, Just and Loving Word; God has removed the true artisan who…. In each stroke of the brush, each pressing of the clay to shape, each chisel stroke to chip away the image within the rock, each line of poetry, each scene of the play, each chapter of the book…. Glorifies God in all his Majesty, reflecting his glory in the talent of the artisan granted by his Maker , to whom be glory forever and ever Amen; God is taken from our churches, preachers who teach Truth in Love according to the Bible’s declaration of an Absolute Sovereign and Victorious King saving his people unto adoption as Family and cleansing all the universe of sin in the subversion first of all evil under His feet and replaced them in judgment, with the propagators and promulgators of man worship in the form of pseudo-Christianity…. Arminianism and liberalism and psychology from the pulpit claiming like in the Satan’s circus days of Charles Finney “You walk that aisle and command Jesus Christ to save you on your terms and he will obey !”. Billy Graham himself used to voice in his crusades when those getting ready to tell Jesus to save them were walking down the aisle to the front “You could have prayed for these people before they started walking down the aisle and you can pray for them as they make their way back to their seats but now as they are making their decision .. NOT YOU, NOT ME AND NOT GOD HIMSELF can do anything to these people while they make their decision”… I know many of you do not know the magnitude of what was just said because of the dead Christianity in this nation so I’ll clear it up… What Billy said was that MAN HIMSELF is absolutely SOVEREIGN over his own salvation and makes his decision without any link to God Almighty who created everything and sustains everything and nothing that is ever was, it is or will be without Him..
John 1:3-4 (NASB) 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
Colossians 1:16-17 (NASB) 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
NOTHING happens that was not decreed by God Almighty children! NEVER fall victim to the damned fools who sell you a god that does not exist…. a god they meet every morning….. In their mirror.
God has taken from our nations municipal and federal representatives, our media outlets, our churches Righteousness and Truth and Love and Justice … All in judgment, for if these do not reside in the halls of power and in the halls of influence what resides?
Proverbs 8:36 (NASB) 36 “But he who sins against me injures himself; All those who hate me love death.”
What resides in this nation’s halls of power and influence is death itself and the murder of every man woman and child unto eternal damnation for the glory of man and his appetites…. From Babylon to Greece to Rome all laid down at man’s feet So that a homosexual, a murderer, a liar, an adulterer, a pedophile can hide his guilt and be damned in public view as he glorifies his own sin and your children are forced to go to a dead Church and listen to a preacher who’s gay lover is sitting in the front pew claiming the Bible espouses the whole blasphemous, apostate, rotting, dead scenario.
Yeah….. “God Bless America” and he will
WITH JUDGMENT in precious RIGHTEOUSNESS ….. The line was broken in the early 1800s from those who, in the hope and Righteous Faith of the Reformation, brought forth this nation in what to the world were impossible circumstances; a group of farmers, tavern owners, teachers, pastors and congregants brought to submission by the Grace of God they claimed as their absolute and only source of sustenance, hope, purpose and victory. America’s been stripped of these men and their families’ legacy because America stripped our children of righteousness, so that the wicked perverts America worships could fulfill their perverted appetites with the whole nation hooked and ripped into hell with them.
Here’s a look at another apostate nation who did the same thing with the same consequences coming down upon us unless repentance and the Reformed Truth of the Reformation and thus Apostolic Christianity is taken up again…
Isaiah 3:2-5 (NASB) 2 The mighty man and the warrior, The judge and the prophet, The diviner and the elder, 3 The captain of fifty and the honorable man, The counselor and the expert artisan, And the skillful enchanter. 4 And I will make mere lads their princes, And capricious children will rule over them, 5 And the people will be oppressed, Each one by another, and each one by his neighbor; The youth will storm against the elder And the inferior against the honorable
This Nation surviving or not surviving has nothing to do with the nation that we belong to as Christians if you truly know the Sovereign God. This Earth is being regenerated and the Husband of the Bride His Church, is NOT going to let his bride be overrun and has proven over and over again that the beast of the sea, apostate political power, and the beast of the land, apostate religious power or the false prophet which propagates worship of the beast of the sea, have been destroyed. First the Roman Empire – beast of the sea = Roman Emperor – beast of the land = Emperor worship cult, then the Holy Roman Empire BOS= holy Roman Emperor –BOL = papacy, then the third Reich under Hitler-BOS = Hitler’s government – BOL = the SS cult, and on and on through Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot etc. etc. The media and the Arminian postmillennialists will say hell is rising ….What does the Bible say ???
Eschatology of Victory
Man must rescind his allegiance to theological sloth which means he must not forego the time to use the Scripture to interpret Scripture, for Scripture is a single unit describing the gradual revelation of God’s plan of Regeneration of His Creation of the course of the History He has Sovereignly facilitated for this very purpose. It is simple and effective to manifest “wonder and fear”, to draw analogies between relatively current events and Scripture, these “events of prophecy” standing alone and apart from comprehensive and sequential recognition of the entire stream of Truth. These colorful stories are clothed in supposed “scholarly” exegesis, given the misnomer “Literal Interpretation” and amount to forcing God’s Word into the context of any given generation’s own temporal, political and moral frame of reference to incite the Flesh’s natural response of excited fear and focus, even in the Reprobate posing as a “Christian”; these are the words and wisdom of men. LOOK upon the WORLDLY success of the Left Behind series. This feeds any given “theologian” or “pastor” power within their time as they seem to claim, under the power of their own interpretive acumen, truths of Scripture straight from the headlines. Premillennialism also gives an excellent excuse NOT to live out the “Great Commission” as what’s the use? Evil will Triumph in this world UNTIL GOD COMES AND WIPES IT OUT after jettisoning the True Christians off to Heaven as an escape pod. Satan has orchestrated an excellent plan with the rise of Premill and Amill Eschatologies since the early 1900’s as a result of America’s fall in wickedness. This environment in our Apostate Churches minimizes desire to follow Christ’s commands with the vigor and absolute commitment which is commanded by Christ in His Reign as King, unto the Regeneration of ALL (as you will see), and it was a brilliant satanic move. Christ has commanded our taking of the earth, in His Righteousness, not our being taken FROM the world :
John 17:15 (ESV) 15 I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.
Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV) 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
John 17:21 (ESV) 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
John 15:14 (ESV) 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you.
John 15:16-17 (ESV) 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17 These things I command you, so that you will love one another.
John 15:7-8 (ESV) 7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.
Matthew 13:31-33 (ESV) 31 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. 32 It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” 33 He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.”
Luke 17:20-21 (ESV) 20 Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them, “The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed, 21 nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.”
John 14:12 (ESV) 12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
Greater Works?! The Resurrection to His Throne of Kingship and Husbandry to His Bride was only the genesis of the Regeneration and the wonders to come would be magnificent in time. The “millennium” or the “1000 years” spoken of in chapter 20 of Revelation is a GREAT amount of time for the Kingdom is a figurative 1000 years. 1000 years has figured a long period of time and other figures of allusive meaning to a large number in the Bible before. The Rebellion’s victories, under the thrown down satan after the Resurrection, is said to only last a figurative 3 ½ years in Daniel and Revelation, which is half of the perfect 7 which means an abbreviated, finite time. Further, the 3 ½ years of the Beasts’ Rebellions…
Revelation 11:2 (ESV) 2 but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months.
…..is positioned after Christ’s rise to the Throne of King and Husband to His Bride includes therefore Christ is actually glorifying Himself in hidden victory during these times too.
The Regeneration of the earth unto the Glorification of Christ through His Bride, Spiritual Israel (Rom 4), is clarified here by Jesus Himself with the commensurate indications of thriving* for the Righteous as the world advances in regeneration, as you will see in Isaiah 65 later….
Matthew 19:28-29 (ASV) 28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that ye who have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone* that hath left houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit eternal life.
In Christ’s coming, death and resurrection, the defeat of Satan was complete in regard to the Elect of God’s Creation AND unto Creation itself. We are not in a countdown to destruction but are in a “mopping up” process after satan’s defeat.
Revelation 12:9 (ESV) 9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world— he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
Matthew 12:29 (ESV) Jesus Said… 29 Or how can someone enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? Then indeed he may plunder his house.
I assure you, this cannot be seen or even conceived of by those of the flesh, the Reprobate, but gaze with regenerated eyes…….
1 Corinthians 3:16-23 (ESV) 16 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? 17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple. 18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness,” 20 and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.” 21 So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, 23 and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.
There are many who claim defeatist and neutral Eschatologies in the face of God’s repeated allusion to His cleansing the earth in gradual dawning of Christ’s Righteousness upon the entirety of Creation, as the Covenant of Grace is worked out in time and space under King & Christ Jesus’ Glorious Reign. Darby himself spoke of the burgeoning evil of man in the “Millennium” itself, posited in Premillennialism, “When this obedience is not paid (to God’s Law), excision (execution) takes place, so that all is peaceful and happy.”(Collective Writings, xi., p. 534). The Millennium spoken of here is one where Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, is STILL, post-Second Coming, allowing bondage to a burgeoning evil, of both Creation AND those very Saints apparently living IN A GLORIFIED STATE. This theory also places under bondage to evil the very creation said in Romans 8:20-21, to be freed unto regeneration at the revelation of the Sons of God (At Pentecost Sanctification starts and finishes in their Glorification at Christ’s Second Coming) . As we know from Genesis 4:10,
Genesis 4:10 (ESV) 10 And the LORD said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground.
…with evil present and violations of wicked sin such as murder occurring in this “Millennium” of Premillennialism, even with Darby’s “excisions”, physically, of the sinners under the iron rod rule of Christ, the creation will be re-tainted with the wickedness of sin as the Blood of the murdered taints the ground which was Glorified* according to the Bible at the revelation of the Sons of God or at the time of the Elect’s FULL glorification through the infusing to them of Christ’s FULL Righteousness and their Glorified Bodies at His Second Coming which said to happen PRIOR to the “Millennium” of Premillennialism….
*Romans 8:19 (ESV) 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.
*Romans 8:21-22 (ESV) 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
To have the GLORIFIED dwelling amongst the Reprobate is not something that is possible in that the Reprobate CANNOT look upon the Glory of God which would be in us in the FULLNESS of Christ; just look at what Moses had to do as the Glory of the Law was NOT fully infused to him but simply communicated to him with God giving him the Grace to understand its implications spiritually. The people could not even gaze at him without terror because they saw in his face the Glory of God’s Character (God’s Law) against the backdrop of their sin:
Exodus 34:29-30 (ESV) 29 When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God. 30 Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, and behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.
Exodus 34:35 (ESV) 35 the people of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face was shining. And Moses would put the veil over his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
*** Interjection – In addition, I will use verses from Revelation and thus a little Greek is warranted to understand the figurative nature of the book:
Revelation 1:1 (ESV) 1 The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show *to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
δεικνύω [See Stg: <G1166>]
deiknúō and δείκνυμι deíknumi; fut. deíxō. To show, used trans
(IV) Metaphorically to show by words, meaning to teach, direct — AMG’s Complete Word Study Dictionaries – The Complete Word Study Dictionary – New Testament.
*** Interjection – One of the most common mistakes in translating the meaning of A DAY OF THE LORD is to, in every circumstance describing “A” judgmental “coming” of the Lord , peg the meaning to the end of the world or Judgment Day. I will show you a consistent method the Bible uses to reveal a judgmental or gracious “coming of the Lord” consistently through the Bible WITH DIFFERENT DAYS OF JUDEGEMENT IN MIND.
Revelation 1:7 (ESV) 7 Behold, he is coming * with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.
The “coming” in this verse means CONTIUALLY COMES or KEEPS ON COMING, in the Greek, throughout the history of the Book and mankind, “on clouds”, which signify God’s majesty. I will show you what I mean…..
1- Literal Establishment of the Figure of God’s Presence or His Power “Coming” in Judgment…
Exodus 13:21 (ESV) 21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night. [the Lord came and stayed with the Israelites through their desert trial as the FIRST occurrence, that the figurative “coming on clouds” was established as the SYMBOL of God’s “coming” or presence.]
Exodus 24:18 (ESV) 18 Moses entered the cloud and went up on the mountain. And Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights. [The Lord’s majesty on Mt. Sinai]
Leviticus 16:13 (ESV) 13 and put the incense on the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is over the testimony, so that he does not die. [The Lord in the Cloud of incense over the Mercy Seat]
Numbers 9:17 (ESV) 17 And whenever the cloud lifted from over the tent, after that the people of Israel set out, and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the people of Israel camped. [The Lord’s Majestic Presence with His People, as He is with the Elect today in the Spirit, was prefigured in the desert trial]
2 – Figurative occurences of God’s Power “coming” in Judgment….
2 Samuel 22:12 (ESV) 12 He made darkness around him his canopy, thick clouds, a gathering of water. [David’s Song of Deliverance]
Isaiah 19:1 (ESV) 1 An oracle concerning Egypt. Behold, the LORD is riding on a swift cloud and comes to Egypt; and the idols of Egypt will tremble at his presence, and the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them. [This was God’s coming to JUDGE Egypt at that time.]
Matthew 24:30 (ESV) 30 Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. [The “coming” of Christ on clouds of glory to judge Israel in 70 A.D. Matt 24:1-34 (also see Luke 21)]
Matthew 26:64 (ESV) 64 Jesus said to him, “You have said so. But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven.” [Jesus’ warning the priests and people at His trial, of the coming 70 A.D. judgment]
Daniel 7:13-14 (ESV) 13 “I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. 14 And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed. [ When did Jesus’ REIGN as King begin? AT THE ASCENSION unto the Right Hand of the Father, not at the end of the World!]
*** Another use of figurative language involves the “moon turning to blood” and the “stars falling” etc., on “A” day of the Lord’s grace or judgment. I will give ONE example because it is so obvious in its clarity that you will spot the other uses of such a theme and its meaning. Just REMEMBER PEOPLE. Do NOT let “theologians lead you down THEIR paths of MIS-understanding. Stick with those who gave up their lives to God in study AND RIGHTEOUS LIFE IN CHRIST…..The Reformers and Puritans. Many “theologians” posit the meaning of such verses with langue as below, ONLY as the END OF THE WORLD and the Second Coming. NO. The Bible is replete with language of this sort alluding figuratively but truly, in its allusion to God’s powerful intervention in REDEMPTIVE judgment in the Bible. Redemptive Judgment is when the Lord judges the wickedness of man as they oppress His people, unto His Elect Children’s good, safety in Christ and the facilitation and propagation of His Word and their number (Grace).
Joel speaks of the Judgment of the wicked, ALL the wicked, Israel and the nations over the course of ALL history, AND here He speaks of those who in the midst of that Consuming Fire, will receive the great “Pouring out of the Spirit” at Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was first poured upon the Beloved of Christ….the Elect in Jerusalem AND ALL OF CREATION, BOTH began in regeneration unto the New Heavens and the New Earth under the Reign of Jesus Christ described throughout Isaiah, Ezekiel and all the prophets.
Joel 2:28-32 (ESV) 28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. 29 Even on the male and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit. 30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. 32 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the LORD has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the LORD calls.
Now the Fulfillment; and as we know from ALL reliable sources, none of the catastrophic celestial and earthly cataclysms described, happened. These words are used THROUGHOUT the Bible to mean a “coming to bear” in the world, of God’s Redemptive Judgment.
Acts 2:16-22 (ESV) 16 But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel: 17 “ ‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; 18 even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. 19 And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; 20 the sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day. 21 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’ 22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know—
You see, at the death and resurrection of Christ, this REGENERATION BEGAN; not just of the “Sons of God” (called such because we ALL receive as Elect, the heir status of the First Born Son (JESUS) and receive the Best of the Father’s “estate”) but the ENTIRE CREATION itself began to move toward Regeneration unto New Heavens and New Earth by the infusion of the Righteousness of Christ, just as the Righteousness is infused to the Elect, but in the extended timing of God’s Plan for the Covenant’s unveiling (to God 1000 years = day & vice versus-2 Peter3:8). EVERY attempt by Satan to extirpate the Church, with the greatest and strongest of his Beasts of Daniel for example (The Roman Empire) ….
Daniel 7:7 (ESV) 7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.
…..HAS FAILED. The “Beast” or the “Antichrist” are NOT some SINGLE INDIVIDUAL who will be the “worst of the worst” but are clearly revealed in history:
1) The Beast from the Sea – Apostate Political Power* under the control of the Dragon**, the defeated Ruler of the reprobate minions of evil….Satan (“The Prince of the Power of the Air)
*Revelation 13:1 (ESV) 1 And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads.
**Revelation 12:8-10 (ESV) 8 but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world— he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.
2) The Antichrist was handled by John (Antichrist was NEVER used in Revelation by the way) as was the Man of Lawlessness Paul Pointed to in 2 Thessalonians –
Antichrist-Man of Lawlessness— NOT a person but a series of revolts to the rise of Christ’s Kingdom, which are tools of the devil…(Rome was the first with its rivers of Christian blood, then the Roman Catholic Blood bath from the Papal Apostasy was the second “Beast or Antichrist or Man of Lawlessness”…now there is the rise of the apostate US Government and apostate God-less, Arminian-Humanist-Unitarian-Satanism “Christianity” glorifying everything BUT the One True God…and it WILL FALL too by the “Sword from the Mouth of Christ” wielded by His Church as we pick up the weapons of the Reformation’ advance in theological Righteousness of Christ again….
1 John 2:18 (ESV) 18 Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour.
1 John 2:22 (ESV) 22 Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son.
1 John 4:3 (ESV) 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.
The rule of God in righteousness and justice is absolute, not based upon God’s ability to put down the rebellion or opposition but based upon God’s ability to entirely extirpate sin from his creation at will. The Premillennial “Millennium” associates of glorified Christ, bathed in absolute righteousness and glory, along with his siblings of the same constitution, with the sin and death which, according to Romans 8, should have been cleansed away forever in the presence of such glory. We have a Bible, especially Isaiah, replete with allusions to a time commensurate with the realization of the commandment of the Great Commission, the subversion of Christ’s enemies under his feet (Psalm 110, 1 Corinthians 15) and the destruction of the first Beast (apostate political power) and the second Beast or False Prophet (false/apostate religious power) to an increasingly ineffective state under a burgeoning Righteousness.
Psalm 110:1-2 (ESV) 1 The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” 2 The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies!
1 Corinthians 15:24-25 (ESV) 24 Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father AFTER destroying every rule and every authority and power. 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
This time alluded to by the occurrences fulfilling the aforementioned vss., will be an indefinite “millennium” of increasing righteousness where the Church of Christ will expand under the sovereign election of those Jesus commands to be evangelized i.e…..
Acts 1:8 (ESV) 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Nature itself will also see a burgeoning of righteousness in that the very animals themselves who were made blood thirsty in the fall, will have a change in the fundamental integrity of their nature, just as man will experience en masse…
–Isaiah 11:6 (ESV) 6 The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them.
—As more of the great rebellions are crushed and become less effective as Christ’s Righteousness spreads with growing ubiquity in man and Creation, there will be evidences which reflect this advance as Jesus enemies are put under His feet …. What evidences?
Isaiah 65:17-25 (ESV) 17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind. 18 But be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy, and her people to be a gladness. 19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in my people; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of distress. 20 No more shall there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not fill out his days, for the young man shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed. 21 They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22 They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 They shall not labor in vain or bear children for calamity, for they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the LORD, and their descendants with them. 24 Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall graze together; the lion shall eat straw like the ox, and dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain,” says the LORD.
Daniel 7:18 (ESV) 18 But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, forever and ever.’
The evil of those condemned will be gradually judged and placed under Jesus’ feet as the reign of Christ through His Bride will be consummated; in time the remnants of Satan’s downfall die out.
Daniel 7:21-22 (ESV) 21 As I looked, this horn made war with the saints and prevailed over them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given for the saints of the Most High, and the time came when the saints possessed the kingdom.
— Those things we see every day which confound and sadden the Christian who is TRUE and grounded in God’s Absolute Sovereignty as the backdrop to his NOTHINGNESS without Him; those injustices where evil is claimed good and righteousness in Christ claimed evil and people blinded in a world with a rapacious infection of sin……will start to change as the balance tilts….as the Regeneration takes hold in a much clearer dominance ……
Isaiah 32:1-8 (ESV) 1 Behold, a king will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule in justice. 2 Each will be like a hiding place from the wind, a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land. 3 Then the eyes of those who see will not be closed, and the ears of those who hear will give attention. 4 The heart of the hasty will understand and know, and the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak distinctly. 5 The fool will no more be called noble, nor the scoundrel said to be honorable. 6 For the fool speaks folly, and his heart is busy with iniquity, to practice ungodliness, to utter error concerning the LORD, to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the thirsty of drink. 7 As for the scoundrel— his devices are evil; he plans wicked schemes to ruin the poor with lying words, even when the plea of the needy is right. 8 But he who is noble plans noble things, and on noble things he stands.
Isaiah 34 reveals the Judgment the wicked kingdom can repeatedly expect, no matter their temporary victory.
Isaiah 35 reveals the Glory and Hope the Elect and the Creation itself can expect as His Righteousness takes hold.
The world will NOT be perfect until the Consuming Fire of Christ’s Righteous Judgment in its finale’, a “Baptism” by Fire Culminates at His Second Coming and melts away the sin and finally DEATH itself that remain….
2 Peter 3:10-13 (ESV) 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. 11 Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, 12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! 13 But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
God did not allow evil to become extant to chase Good out of the world in order to hide in Heaven; God made evil possible, that those chosen to reign with him in submissive glory would know and harbor gratitude for the glorious & righteous state of their eternal station in a capacity superseding all created beings prior; for the glorified human will carry within himself not just a great Gift of being and station but an inextricable tale, each his own, of the rise from a torturous dead existence to the most glorious Gift of Life and a perfect appraisal of the value of that Gift, full and eternal in its provision, in the form of Selfless Love, which is what Jesus meant in saying “I came to serve not to be served.” And thus we will serve our God for eternity, in perfect Joy and inside the Love we all desire. Defeat (Premillennialism) and Neutrality (Amillennialism) are unbiblical and unfaithful to the King, Jesus, whose Authority in Sovereignty WILL be known, forevermore. God Bless You with Eyes to See and Ears to Hear.
