Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution, Part 5

As noted previously, some commentators place the second and third questions together. The first question is addressing the timetable regarding the destruction of the Temple. The other two questions move ahead in time to the very end of this age. If more people understood this, there would be far less misinterpretation going on here and less arguing over “this” or “that” as Preterists and others are prone to do. They are missing the big picture. But some commentators believe that the “end of the age” occurred when Rome destroyed Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple that stood at the time. These same commentators also believe that Jesus “returned” at this same time, though He returned spiritually in judgment of Israel. To them, this marks the end of the age to which Jesus refers.

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution, Part 4

It is important to grasp the fact that they actually asked Jesus three individual questions here. They wanted to know when the Temple would be destroyed (“not one stone will be left on another”), they wanted to know what signs might be associated with the Second Coming, and finally, they wanted to know what sign(s) might be connected with the end of the age. It is also very important to understand that according to rabbinic sources, there are only two ages: this age in which we currently live and the coming age when Messiah will reign. When this current age ends, it will do so because the Messiah will return and start the new age.

Politics as Usual and the Recent Parisian Terrorist Attacks

As I’ve long suspected, Muslim terrorists are being “used” by the elite to establish their purposes throughout the world. What the average person sees as individual terrorist events that simply occur out of nowhere, are – I believe – controlled events that are designed to unseat certain leaders while creating an atmosphere of fear and panic throughout the world. Once the elite no longer need these terrorists, I believe they will be quickly be dispatched and put down by this same elite.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 19

As we learn in Daniel 9:27, peace is brokered by the Antichrist (the first Seal of Revelation 6) and the world celebrates! True peace for at least seven years! However, by the middle of the “week” or final seventh year, Antichrist shows his true face by replicating what Antiochus Epiphanes IV did in 168 BC. At that point, Antichrist will take his seat in the rebuilt Jewish Temple and desecrate it, recreating an “abomination of desolation” that Jesus spoke about in Matthew 24. This abomination of desolation will be real, it will be physical, and it will be visible. In fact, it is very likely that seconds after Antichrist goes into the Holy of Holies, that act of defiance will be televised throughout the world and across the Internet. At this point, the Jews who put their faith in him (for peace), will realize what they did and run to the hills, where God will protect that remnant for the final three and a half years of the Tribulation. This is all in the book of Revelation.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 18

Verse 41 tells us that this king – the Antichrist – will invade the “Beautiful Land,” which is another term for Israel (see also Daniel 8:9). Antichrist has ultimately wanted to control Israel and the Temple Mount specifically. Notice that the text tells us that “Many countries will fall…” just like countries fell during the time of Hitler. In fact, every time there has been a change of “ownership” from one empire to another, those lands “fell” from the previous ruler’s control into the hands of the new rulers. This coming series of conflicts toward the end of the Tribulation will be nothing new. It’s the way the “game of thrones” has always worked in history.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 13

There have always been small, committed groups of Jews within Israel who stood for the Lord though it would seem that in every generation, Satan has been allowed to trap most Jews in his lies. Today, some of the most ardent opposition of Israel are found within the Jewish community. Part of that is simply due to the fact that they erroneously believe that if Israel was not part of the Middle East, there might actually be peace in the world. This is a complete deception because the global elite needs to keep the world in a state of controlled chaos, with rumors of wars and actual wars. Islam would not rest on its laurels or somehow go away if Israel did not exist in the Middle East. Jews would still exist and Islam hates Jews and Judaism. Moreover, aspects of Islam (ISIS, etc.) are being allowed to believe that they are entering another (and final) caliphate (rule of Islam) throughout the world. Islam is being taught to believe that Allah is with them and is why they are making such tremendous inroads into global society. Of course, that is merely a mirage, created by the global elite. When they are done using Islam, it will be quickly and easily put down.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 12

These faithful Jews had right on their side. They fought to repel Antiochus, his general, and his troops. They were right in doing so because Israel was (and remains) a theocracy, whether that is admitted to in today’s world or not. God Himself created Israel from the Hebrew people He created from one line of Abraham’s ancestry. God created Israel as a theocracy where religious life – first the Tabernacle, then ultimately, the Temple – became the focal point of everything that happened in Israel. Without God, the priesthood, the temple, there was no Israel and by the way, of course all of that pointed to Jesus.
