The War In Heaven

posted by PrayerWarrior

Satan Thrown Out of Heaven
I want to address the war that will be taking place in heaven, at the midway mark of the 7 last years. At that time at the 3.5 year time mark, the antichrist will stand in the temple and call himself God. I am quite sure as well that this is when the war in heaven takes place and I plan in this article, and video to show just why I understand it this way.The war in heaven is not a huge amount of information but it has all the points we need to pay attention to, in it. Jesus makes reference to it in Matt 24 and also makes reference to Daniel’s prophecies. I will show how they correlate with one another.For most bible references I use the NKJV, and the KJV. I have used the Amplified bible and the NASB.

 

Matt 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. See Jesus says the same exact thing as Daniel, about this being a time like has never been before.

 

This is all when Michael stands up. I want to look at this from Pauls perspective as well. He was also taken to heaven and shown the end He tells us this in 2 Corinthians 12. 2. But let’s look at  Thess 2:3-7 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; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. Or till Michael stands up to satan and throws him out of Heaven. Until the time of the war in heaven the antichrist will not be revealed. No one will know for sure who he is. Let’s go on with Rev 12.

 

Revelation 12:7-9 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. So now satan is come to the earth at this time. Will he inhabit his antichrist? I am Not sure really, but we know that there is great power in the antichrist, he deceives many, and we know he comes back to life around this time too. I imagine it is a parody of Christs resurrection as well. Knowing that satan loves making a mockery of all God has done, helps me to believe this is the case.

 

Revelation 13:11-14 let’s look at the deadly wound healed on the beast. 11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.<<<(The false Prophet, looks like a lamb the Hadith = book of eschatology of Muslims, calls this person Jesus) 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. This is all at the halfway point of the last 7 years. The oblations or sacrifices are stopped when the armies surround jerusalem, then the antichrist calls himself God in the temple.

 

Let’s go on though as we were, and finish up with Chapter 12 of Revelation. Rev 12:10-12,  Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” In this I see Jesus words to flee from Jerusalem when the a/c stands in the temple calling himself god and demanding worship.

 

The Woman Persecuted Rev 12:13-17
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child (Unbelieving Israel). 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God (To love Himself and each other) and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.This is also spoken of (the protection of this woman) in verse 6 of chp 12 of Rev. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

 

I also believe that is when the seals begin to be opened. The antichrist will be in power for a short 3.5 years, or 1260 days, the same amount of time that the Jews are nourished and hidden in the wilderness. The antichrist the rider on the white horse, seems to be a man of peace and for non Christians he will be, but for Jews and Christians woe to us woe. The antichrist comes on a white horse with a bow and no arrows in his quiver.  He comes conquering and to conquer, he will have that power only when he is resurrected from the dead by satan. He will have that power only because Michael is no longer holding back satans power. Once the war in heaven happens Michael is no longer restraining evil, or keeping it at bay.

 

Now in that set of verses  Rev 12:6 and 12:14 I see clearly a remnant being hidden and protected in the desert, or wilderness, or wherever it may be that God has in mind to hide the remnant, for the 3.5 years of the great tribulation, as is seen clearly in verse 6, and 14 she is cared for. God has always had a remnant of Jews always has and always will, till there is no need. It all has to do with the promise to Abraham to make more people than the sands of the sea, through him. Then the rest who hold the testimony of Jesus, that is Christians that satan goes to make war with. This is when the mark of the beast will be implemented, and carried out with deadly force. We will look at those other verses that explain all of this a little later. Many say no the Jews cannot be alive and or will have come to Christ. No not those hidden away in the desert my friends. When they see Christ coming on the clouds with power and great glory their eyes will be fully opened.

 

I have a point to make here and it is about the two commandments God has for us in the new covenant.  (Jesus tells us that love covers a multitude of sins in, Matt 22:37-40 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” See just two covers it all. because if you Love God your going to do all you can to please Him and if you love your fellow man, you are doing what you are commanded to do as well. Love will not bring harm of any kind to another.)

 

I have seen that many people cannot make a distinction here in this set of verses, Rev 12:6 and 14, but to me it is very clear and simple to understand. God allows the saints those who accepted Christ, and who follow His commandments to love God and others as we love ourselves, these are they who are Christians, as we began to be called in the book of Acts. What does Christ-ians mean? It means little Christs. We were first called Christians in Acts 11:19-26. We will go through fiery trials to be chastened and purified. Paul tells us this truth, that through much tribulation will we enter the KINGDOM OF GOD. Acts 14:22

 

There are plenty of verses that tell us the Jews will mourn as though over their first born.  Zech 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced , and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. They will repent at that time. Then also we know from many verses that the Jews will be those who mostly repopulate the earth in the millennial kingdom. Look at this set of facts. Jews will not be raptured because they do not believe in Christ. God told Abraham it was his direct seed who will populate the earth to more than the sands of the sea. Someone has to be alive for this, and whom God has blinded on purpose, (which we know till the times of the gentiles be fulfilled they are blinded) He will not hold them as accountable as if they were allowed to see and totally rejected Him anyway.

 

I believe because they repent and mourn to the very core of them, those whom the Lord has hidden away in that time, will be forgiven and taught the ways of the Messiah. God blinded them on purpose until the time of the gentiles be fulfilled. Romans 11:25-27: For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. Paul also warned the Romans against being lifted up in pride because they had been favored by God with salvation. He explained the mystery that the blindness of Israel would not last forever. He told them that this condition would only last until “the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” Then he explained that all of Israel, that existed when the fullness of the Gentiles was completed, would be saved. He went on in the chapter to explain that God first concluded the Gentiles in unbelief so that He might have mercy on the Gentiles. He then explained that the Jews are now consigned to unbelief, so that He might have mercy on the Jews. He summarizes his discourse in Romans 11:32 – For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. Revelation 1:7 also speaks of they who pierced him mourning.

 

I want to give a little background on who is the antichrist what area he will come from and it is not Rome! First of all the Romans did rule for a long time a very large tract of the middle east, but it was not they who destroyed the temple, it was the Flavians. In Daniel, it speaks of the man who will come and he is a northern middle east personality. So Turkish, Assyrian area is how I see it. The Assyrian from the tribe of Dan is how it is explained by some people, and this just rings true in my spirit. We are told in Genesis that Dan is a snake an adder, and comes from the North. Let’s look at that. “Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. 17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. 18 I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord.” (Genesis 49:16-18)

 

Then let’s look at some more verses that explain this a little further. “There is one come out of thee,[Nineveh] that imagineth evil against the Lord, a wicked counsellor.” (Nahum 1:11) Then “And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.” (Micah 5:5) then in Daniel we see he comes from the North.”Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and from it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.” (Daniel 8:8-9)

 

The Prophet Jeremiah also said that the antichrist would invade through the tribe of Dan. “The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.” (Jeremiah 8:16) We know this has not ocurred as of yet, it shows up nowhere in History. Also many people believe that the war in heaven has occurred already, but it has not as satan still goes back and forth accusing the brethren before God. Also the book of Revelation none of it has occurred as of yet with the exception maybe and this is just a maybe, as we do not know for sure as of yet, if the Judgment of the Ekklesia, the house of God, has begun. I personally think that it has been happening over the last year as all of the hard core true Christians I know, have been going through the toughest times of their lives. Physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial woes have plagued those who seek the Lord diligently. Those who study to show themselves approved and who know that there are wolves in sheeps clothing leading the many straight down the path of hell.

 

I am continually astonished at those who refuse to see the word of God just for itself, but instead seek out men and their interpretation of the word. I have had an argument with a man recently on youtube, who just cannot get it through his head, that I refuse to listen to men, and when I gave him the verse in 1 John 2:27 which says that we have no need that men teach us, he wrote a whole entire article on his blog, trying to disabuse people from knowing that they were anointed with the same Holy Spirit as any of the teachers in this modern day so called church. I have disdain for the word church because it is a misinterpreted word. Ekklesia is the word used for church and the word Ekklesia in Greek means called out ones chosen, or the elect.

 

We are all to be anointed and made into disciples as the apostles were doing. They were first discipled by Christ, then they were told to go out and make disciples of the nations, that is our great commission. Each and every person who is in the Lord and believes on the truth, are disciples, and it is all of our job to go out and make disciples of the world. How can we do that if we are not imbued with the power of the Holy Spirit, the power that raised Christ from the dead, ourselves? The dictionaries of today make no distinction between apostle and or disciple. The Greek language however makes a distinction. Strongs Greek for Apostolos #652 a messenger, envoy, delegate, one commissioned by another to represent him in some way, especially a man sent out by Jesus Christ Himself to preach the Gospel; an apostle.

 

Then we have the Greek word for Disciple, Strongs Greek #3101 mathétés a learner, pupil. These in turn go about learning the ways of the Lord and then go out teaching others the same things they learned. Healing casting out demons speaking in other tongues, prophesying, words of knowledge wisdom discerning spirits, and so on and so forth. We have a wonderful brother in Christ named Torben, Torben is taking brand new disciples and making them into disciplers themselves right away. You can find Torbens amazing truth speaking teaching videos on you tube at The Last Reformation channel. In the times coming Daniel tells us 12:3 Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. Again I have to say that we none of us can be disciples nor make disciples if the Holy Spirit is not here in the end times.

 

Also let’s look at Daniel 12:1 “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book. So I want to understand completely and I want all of you who hear to understand as well. Michael is the restrainer, there is no doubt in my mind, because as soon as he stands up, there will be times of trouble the likes of which has never been before. Michael we know from Daniels earlier writings, is a great prince he is the most powerful arch angel, and it is his job to watch over the people of the Lord, that does include Christians people.

 

As soon as we become born again, we are grafted into the olive tree. We know when He stands up when the antichrist shows himself as god and demands worship the mark will be implemented on the earth. There will be no buying or selling without that mark of the beast, we will be hunted down and many killed. We will know that the war in heaven has occurred because satan comes down and takes out his wrath on the inhabitants of the earth. He chases after the Israeli’s first and when that does not work, because they are supernaturally protected, then the saints who hold to the testimony of Jesus Christ will be in the sites of satan. This is very important to us as we will certainly be here for it.

 

Normally I like to find all of the old testament scriptures to go along with the New testament scriptures to my amazement though there really are no Old Testament scriptures to go along with the book of Revelation and the war that takes place in heaven. I know that the war in heaven has not taken place as of yet for a couple of reasons, but the biggest reason is that Jesus told John that these are things which are yet to take place and that was after Jerusalem and the temple were already destroyed. John was given the Revelation sometime after all the other apostles were dead and that has to have been after 86 AD. Some say he died around 100 AD some say he died around 90 AD. We know it was a while after the others. Rev 1:1-3 1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, 2 who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

 

See those things to come!!! But notice something else in those verses. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy. The only book in the whole bible that comes with a blessing. It must be awfully important to the Lord that we read and adhere to it. We must know the end from the beginning or we will not be prepared and or ready for what is to come. Prophecy is the most important aspect of the word of God, for it is our hope contained in the prophecies. Not only that but we are told in Revelation also that 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 

If you take the spirit of prophecy and eat it up as John did literally, it tastes sweet but makes bitter the tummy, but you will not easily forget it! We tend to remember those things that hurt our bellies. Normally though we stay away from those things, let us never stray far from the prophecies contained in the word for there in lies the spirit of Jesus the spirit of prophecy. I have people ask me all the time but how can you just study prophecy so much and only that? But honestly how do you only study prophecy? I mean in order to study the prophecies you must study the entire word! It is impossible to study only prophecy. In order to get to the prophecies you must study from one end of the word to the other! So you get to know everything in between as well.

 

Also there is some new false garbage going on by of all people John MacArthur and Brannon Howse, that you can take the mark of the beast and still go to heaven and have eternity with Christ! I beg to differ as does the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation in chapter 14:9-11 clearly states,9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

 

Blessings  to you all in Christ,

Endurance And What It Means In The Bible.

posted by PrayerWarrior

Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Wars rumors of wars, pestilence, famines, earthquakes in diverse place, All coming to pass before the end, it is not yet! This is all just the beginning of sorrows folks. The great tribulation will not come till after all of this.

Now let’s look at the word endure and what that means, because so many just seem to skip right past this word and yet it is prominently posted here and there in the word. He who endures till the end shall be saved. What is the end of anything but the end? Really why is the end called the end? Because there is nothing more to happen after the end. Jesus says he comes after the tribulation.

Anyway Endure = 1. to hold out against; sustain without impairment or yielding; undergo: 2. to bear without resistance or with patience; tolerate: 3. to continue to exist; lasts: Ok so let’s say it another way, Jesus said he who holds out, he who sustains without yielding,he who tolerates, who bears without resistance, he who continues to exist,he who lasts, till the end shall be saved! We see here endure means to continue to exist, to hold out against and not give in, under goes persecution till the end will be saved. There is no mistaking anything here we are to do all that till the very end.

Luke 21:19 By your patient endurance gain your souls. Gain here means keep.Heb 3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we behold the beginning of our confidence be steadfast unto the end; Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;).In Acts14:22 we are exhorted to remain in the faith or endure, Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
See that through out the word we are told we must through much tribulation enter the kingdom.

Let’s go further on into Matt 24.
The Great Tribulation
15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

The great tribulation according to Jesus the, Lord our God, our savior our everything, who knows better than any man anywhere, what He is talking about says, when the abomination that creates desolation is seen, then only then does the great tribulation begin. The great tribulation is only 3.5 years. It is not for 7 years, the treaty that brings in the 3rd temple, and brings back sacrifices for the Jews which will be in Jerusalem. At that 7 year half way point there is war in heaven, satan comes down and then really that is when all hell breaks loose.

He who lets in Thessalonians, I do honestly believe it is Micheal who is holding back evil till that time. It cannot be the Holy Spirit for no man can be saved except the Holy Spirit be there to call out to us. The holy Spirit convicts us of our guilt and calls us to repentance, no man could be saved if the Holy Spirit is not here any longer. And the bible tells us in Daniel, that many will be purified and their garments made white in the tribulation trial by fire so to speak.

This is why I believe it is Micheal who is holding back the evil, “At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” Daniel 12:1. We know also Micheal and the angels with him fight against satan and his minions in Heaven.

Rev 12:7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Some say this occurred back in the beginning, but that is not true, because think about it when Job was tempted over and over to turn against god everything that could go wrong was allowed by God through satan to be done to Job. He has been accusing us before God since the start, and is allowed to do so for now because the evil is being held back. It is being held in check, until Micheal and his angels and satan and his, have war. Then and only then can satan be ejected and then evil is full force on the earth. I believe this occurs simultaneously with the abomination of desolation.

He satan is coming to make war with the children of God the saints, why would he fight against his own people? Those who do not even know they are satans own children. They are the liars and the immoral and idolaters and all manner of sinners, and they belong to their father satan. So many people say no I am not satans child, but neither am I God’s. Never realizing that you are either one or the other. There is no such thing as any other way, it is choose God or choose satan, these are the only two choices. There is no other option available.

There are two more parts that I will be writing that has to do with this subject but different. The Holy Spirit and all about Him. And why we must go through the tribulation. The Lord has been working these in me.

Blessings and Merry Christmas to you all!!
Love in Christ, Tammy

Jerusalem To Be Divided, When?

posted by PrayerWarrior

In Light of the President of the United states declaring that he will ask Israel to go back to it’s pre 1967 borders, I thought this article perfectly appropriate.

First of all let me say Israel would be absolutely stupid if they did this. They fortunately are not stupid though, and know better than any persons on earth, that this is a no no. First of all, if they were to do such an asinine thing, they would be leaving themselves vulnerable to the attacks of Syria, and Turkey, and anyone who would wish to attack them from the Golan Heights. Those are indefensible borders. The West bank and the Golan Heights are high ground. He Who has the high ground has the advantage and the way things go for Israel giving their enemies a high ground overlooking Israel is a bad idea.

What our president is envisioning has been proven not to work. He (BHO) does not understand that to give any kind of ground to any in the Arab world is like giving them the green light to kill all the Jews. All we have to do is look at when the Gaza strip was given to the Palestinians to see what they use their ill gotten gains for. That is to lob rockets over into Israel. Every time Israel makes any kind of concessions it has ended up being to their detriment. Besides when has any country who has won land in a war, given back their winnings?

Would America hand over the land they stole from the Native Americans? This is an occupied land if ever an occupied land there was. Would America hand over any land they won in any of the many wars they had to fight? Of course not! This would be foolishness of the highest order. No one would be asked to hand back over the lands they have won in a war. So why ask cajole, and or push Israel to do the same? It is just ridiculous. We took land here in America when we fought the Spanish. We took land from Mexico in the war between Mexico and America. I do not see anyone demanding we return the land we won in those wars.

This is all about supposed peace. There will not be any peace in the middle east. It is not possible, because the Arab world wishes to see Israel decimated. Syria wants the Golan Heights and they just keep stalling any kind of peace process, and then everyone including the American President blame Israel for not wanting peace. They have said time and again they would negotiate for peace. But being intelligent about it is the problem everyone seems to have with Israel. They verbally punish Israel for protecting itself, and yet the rest of the world is applauded when they protect themselves.

God says In Micah 4:1, the prophet said that the Temple mount in Jerusalem would become the focal point of the world. This prophecy has not yet been completely fulfilled. But, it is interesting to note that Jerusalem is, and has been for centuries, the world’s most important religious site. Christians and Jews regard the city as the world’s most important, and Christians and Jews comprise about one-third of the world’s population. No other city in the world is a religious focal point to as many people. Every one keeps talking about Jerusalem being divided. This will not occur for quite some time to come. The bible says clearly that the dividing of Jerusalem and the major land concession will come during the last part of the Antichrist reign of terror.

In Revelation 11:1,2) 1 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. 2 But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. This verse is very specific and while it doesn’t say Jerusalem is being split, it is talking about the Temple Mount being partitioned off.

Currently while the Temple Mount is legally Israel’s, control over it remains in the hands of the Muslim religious council called the Waqf. Jews are not even allowed to pray on the Temple Mount. When Jerusalem is split, I think it’s a fair assumption to say control over the Temple Mount would also be a factor fulfilling Revelation 11:2. Daniel 11:39 Thus he (Antichrist) shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain. This verse talks specifically about what the Antichrist will do. He will divide the land for gain. Maybe that’s political gain or financial gain but the important part is that he will benefit from this evil act of taking land from Israel and giving it away.

Joel 3:1-2 1 In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, 2 I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. Here Joel defines the time of when this will happen. When the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem are restored seems to relate to what has been taking place since 1948 and the restoration of Israel. Since then, Israel has become an extremely productive nation prospering in many ways. We are seeing this time of restoration right now and God will judge the nations that scattered his people and dividing his land.

Zechariah 14:1-2 1 A day of the LORD is coming when your plunder will be divided among you. 2 I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. The first line says that Israel’s plunder (or spoils in other versions) will be divided ‘among you’ or ‘in your midst’. So Zachariah is stating that something Israel has won will be a part of this divided land and it will happen as Israel watches. In 1967, Israel recaptured the old city or East Jerusalem and it was spoils of war.

Today the UN, and the United states are not only pushing to divide Jerusalem, but they are doing it in front of the world. It will not succeed, not until the Lord says it is time. Everything is always done in the timing of the Lord. He knows the perfect timing for everything to take place. This writer through much study, has interpreted this to be the last half of the tribulation. There are two ways to show that the 1,260-day period is representative of the second half of the 70th Week: 1) Jesus said, So when you see standing in the holy place “the abomination that causes desolation,” spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

Matthew 24:15,16 Let’s compare what Jesus said with passages written by Daniel and by John. Firstly, Jesus was referring directly to the following prophecy in the book of Daniel: He will confirm a covenant with many for one “seven.” In the middle of the “seven” he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. (Daniel 9:27)From this prophetically significant verse, we can see that the “abomination that causes desolation” will be set up in the middle of the final seven-year period (the 70th Week).

Secondly, John wrote about the latter-day fleeing of the Israelites, of which Jesus had spoken: The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days. (Revelation 12:6) We can see that everything matches. Thus, Jesus spoke of a time when some type of “abomination that causes desolation” will be set up in the “holy place” (presumably, inside the Third Temple) in Jerusalem. This would be in the middle of the 70th Week: the final seven years of this age (prior to His return to earth to rule and reign).

Jesus then warned those in Judea (the region in which Jerusalem is located), at that time, to flee. Those who will heed the warning (very possibly to escape to the mountain-desert location of Petra, in western Jordan) will be protected for 1,260 days, which also is 42 months or 3½ years—the second half of the 70th Week. Why would the people, in Jerusalem at that time, need to flee? It is at the midpoint that there will be a great battle in heaven, with Michael and his angels booting out Satan and his angels (Revelation 12:7-9).

Presently, although Satan’s throne is not in heaven, he continues to have free access to it, as shown in Job 1:6,7, 2:1,2. That will end at the midpoint of the 70th Week, causing him to be filled with fury on the earth, knowing that his time is short (Revelation 12:12). He will have “a time, times, and half a time” (1 year + 2 years + ½ year = 3½ years) remaining (12:14), which is 42 (Hebrew) months of 30 days each, or 1,260 days. Satan will pursue the remnant of Israelis, who fled at the midpoint of the 70th Week. However, they will be protected by God for the next 1,260 days or 3½ years (Revelation 12:6,14). It also is at the midpoint that the “beast” or Antichrist will gain global power, setting himself up in the Third Temple and proclaiming himself to be “God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

He will “utter proud words and blasphemies” and will “exercise his authority for forty-two months” (Revelation 13:5): the second half of the 70th Week. Incidentally, there has been a great deal of speculation as to what might constitute the “abomination that causes desolation.” I think it may have a very simple explanation, gleaned from Scripture. Daniel 9:27 indicates that this “abomination” will be “set up” on a wing (of the temple). 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4 shows that the “man of lawlessness” (Antichrist) will “set himself up in God’s temple” and proclaim Himself to be God. Therefore, the acts of this rebellious man (who will not be a priest), entering the Third Temple and setting up his headquarters there, and deceiving many into believing that he is “God,” easily could be an outrageous abomination before the true God. “Desolation”—as in unhappiness, misery, despair, and anguish—very well could follow for those who mistake and accept this false christ as the true Christ.

2) Revelation 6:1–10:7 is a chronologically ordered account (see The Chronology of Revelation), with no interruptions, from the beginning to the end of the 70th Week. Note that this account ends “when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet” (10:7). Then John writes, Then I was told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings.” (Revelation 10:11) At this point, John begins a repeat explanation (that is, he prophesies again) of a period of time he already has described, lasting 42 months or 1,260 days (Revelation 11:2,3). But is this the first half or the second half of the 70th Week? It is the second half, because it ends with the blowing of the Seventh Trumpet. We know that this is the end of the 70th Week because, as John describes, Christ has returned to earth to rule and reign:

Eschatology is my ministry. There are simply not enough people out there who do the study of the end times. Oh sure there are plenty who will tell you the lie that tickles your ears. I mean really who wishes to believe they are going to possibly have to suffer, and suffer greatly? Not I for sure, but what I want to hear and what the truth is, are two very different things. I will not stand for lies, and I surely will not spread lies to make people feel better. Sometimes the word of the Lord is hard to hear, and even harder to digest. This is the unvarnished truth you must learn to accept what God in His word is telling you, that you may be prepared for what is coming. If you are unprepared it is because you were either lazy at studying the truth, or you have been mislead and did not try the spirits, against the truth of the word. Or possibly just plain scared to know the truth of the matter.

God did not tell us all of this to scare us, He told us all of this so that we would be unshaken, so that we would be completely ready. He told us all of this to prepare us, so that our strength and trust in Him would be huge. That we would be powerful Christian warriors to stand in the times of the end. He loves us and has prepared us for everything that has been, and that is coming. Will you be blind as the Pharisees were? They thought they knew so well what was coming, when Christ came, and they were the very ones who cried out for Him to be crucified, because they read wrong and understood wrongly.

The very ones He came for were the very ones who rejected and refused Him. Will you be caught up with His true brightened whitened, saints? Will you be one who will stand up under the purifying process? Or will you fall during the time of trying of your faith? Will you praise Him with all your might that you are found worthy to go through the purification, or rail complain and cry out why me Lord? As I said earlier the word is sometimes hard to hear, just look at all the disciples that Jesus had besides the 12, all left Him in John chapter 6, because what he spoke was too much for them to handle. Do not ever walk away from the Lord, because we who endure to the end will gain our eternal life with Him as kings and priests.

In closing no Jerusalem has some time left undivided.Until the Lord decides it is time,it will remain as it is no matter what man says or does. The Antichrist has not shown up on the scene yet. Though things are being put into place for the end times, we still have a little time. How much time no one knows, but it is not too far off in the future. First though we must see the world come together as one government with one currency. We must see a treaty between Israel and many. We must hear of talk about Israel being able to build their temple, and sacrifices being allowed once again. Yes there is much that needs happen, but happen it will, the word says it. It is settled and has been for many years. God does not lie, and His word is always fulfilled.

God Bless and watch over and strengthen you all.

In Christ’s Love, Tammy

Levitical Prophecies And The End Of The Age

posted by PrayerWarrior

The book of Leviticus is loaded with laws that had to be adhered to, to keep the Israelite’s in the constant presence of God. There were so many laws and offerings and sacrifices that had to be made on a daily basis,that the people had a hard time to follow them all. That was the Priests job. The Levite’s were the priests,who had to make sure that the daily sacrifices,weekly sacrifices,and monthly,and yearly sacrifices were adhered to. That’s why they are called the Levitical laws, because the Levite’s had to make sure it was all carried out, the way Moses had informed them they must be carried out.

Here are a few of the different types of sacrifices that had to be made. There were, burnt-offerings,drink-offerings, meat-offerings, and thank-offerings , sin-offerings and trespass-offerings. In the first 7 chapters of Leviticus the drink offering is not mentioned. The reason I am sharing this particular information is I want to show that since Jesus came we are no longer required to do these types of sacrifices to honor the Lord and to atone for sins. Jesus was and is the one time only, needed sacrifice. I will explain this all further later on.

Leviticus is also an explanation for the sacrifices we will be required to make in the millennial kingdom that is to come. I cannot personally as of this time, figure out why we will once again be required to make sacrifices in the millennial kingdom. Since Jesus paid all the price for us already. But I am planning to do, an in depth study on this particular thing, so as to get a better understanding. Once I have an understanding of it, I will happily share my findings with you all.

The reasons I have for assuming the sacrifices will resume in the Millennial kingdom, is Ezekiel chapter 40:39-41 states there are burnt offerings and such in the third temple. I know that these are millennial sacrifices due to the fact that God is ordering them. When in other scriptures the Lord said he will laugh at their worthless sacrifices in the end times. In the book of Malachi it speaks of this. That is because Jesus is the one time only sacrifice needed. There is no other name in which we can be cleansed. He was the drink offering,the blood sacrifice and atonement. The Jews do not recognize Jesus as the messiah. So they will resume their sacrificing once the 7 year treaty is made with Israel,by the beast system or the antichrist. We know in the middle of the treaty that the antichrist will stop the sacrifices from being made.

We do not however know what kind of temple, this temple that these sacrifices take place in, is going to be. We cannot for one minute assume that the temple that will be built in Jerusalem in the end times will be a very big one or even a God sanctioned one. The temple in Ezekiel chapter 40 and 43 is going to be a wonderful temple in the millennial kingdom. Any temple made in our times, would not be a sanctioned one of the Lord. Why would it be? When the Jews did not recognize the time of their visitation by their Messiah! That is why Israeli’s were dispersed through out the world after Jesus death and the destruction of the second temple. Because they did not accept their Messiah sent by God.

Leviticus chapter 26:18 tells us, then I will act with wrathful hostility against you, and I, even I, will punish you seven times for your sins. then in verse, 41 which made me hostile toward them so that I sent them into the land of their enemies–then when their uncircumcised hearts are humbled and they have paid for their sin, I will remember my covenant with Jacob. So basically due to their disobedience and their even killing His son the one time sacrifice,they were once again dispersed through out the world. Their sacrifices were no more.

We know that Israel was reborn as a country, as of 1948. We know or have been told in the word that the Lord was going to bring them back to Israel from all over the world. The Jewish people would inhabit their lands once again. They are doing that now. We still have to see a huge exodus of Jews heading back home to their homeland,though there are many there already, it is estimated that a mere 42% of the worlds Jews live in Israel. So another 58% must head back to Israel. I do believe we will see that as more and more of the world turn against Israel in the not too distant future.

So many people do not realize that Israel is at the center of all the end time prophecies. It amazes me how many people, who call themselves Christians, do not understand that we must stand with Israel. God said I will bless those who bless you oh Israel,and curse those who curse you. America is now turning their back on Israel, and I am waiting for calamities to befall us soon. We cannot hope to get away with tearing apart Israeli’s, verbally and get away with it. Now we are apparently according to our president,(and I use that term loosely , President) trying to put sanctions on Israel,and blaming them for the troubles that are befalling them,and trying to make them pay for the troubles that have fallen upon them. It disgusts me no end to watch this. Our president is standing with the muslims who wish nothing more than to see Israel be destroyed.

We need to be praying for Israel,and for our leaders to stop this nonsense of treating Jews like they are a pariah and the cause of all earthly problems. God said them “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it” Zech12:3 We see the middle east in absolute chaos right now, and it is only going to be getting worse and worse until the end of the age. Here is a small article concerning the dividing of Jerusalem. http://signsofthelastdays.com/archives/the-burdensome-stone-the-entire-world-is-pressuring-israel-to-give-up-east-jerusalem-but-netanyahu-says-that-israel-will-never-surrender-it .

Getting back to Jesus as the one time only needed sacrifice. Why did the physical sacrifices cease? Because we can’t be made perfect by animal sacrifices. “For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins” (Hebrews 10:4). Christ’s sacrifice removes our sins, if we repent. Only the blood of Christ can do that—never the blood of bulls and goats. . Christ came to take away the first, the Old Covenant and the physical sacrifices, and establish the second—the New Covenant revolving around Christ and His first coming to Earth. God took the sacrificial system away. “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (verse 10). When Christ was sacrificed, the physical sacrifices became obsolete. The sacrificial system was replaced by Christ’s sacrifice Hebrews 8:13.

Christ gave His precious blood for us! And He won’t accept a lukewarm response to such a majestic, total sacrifice. He sweat blood for His Church and the world before He gave His blood! (Luke 22:44).

Now it is time for us to do some sweating in gratitude for what He did for all of us. “Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin” (Hebrews 10:18). There is “no more offering for sin”—either physical or spiritual sacrifices! “No more” means no more. “By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God” (verses 20-21). We have a new way to live and a High Priest over God’s house.

God in His word tells us in so many many places that we as His own,those who have accepted Christ,them and their household (i.e. Those who live in their home with them) will be protected. Psalm 91 is a wonderful chapter in the word that describes a holy protection over His own. But in order for us, any of us, to receive this Holy protection, we must first accept Christs sacrifice of His blood and life, and understand He is alive to give us the hope and understanding of our own eternal life through him. Repent,come to the Lord and understand you are not deserving of this free gift.

That it is by God’s grace and His willingness to have His own son put to death for our sins. That we could never pay a price to receive this,we could never work or be deserving of this gift. It is not by anything we do, or have done, or could do. This is a gift, and all we can do is accept it. Then your protection and that of your children will be given without reservation by the Lord. He promises us protection if we only believe, that He will do as He says He will do. if you are a Christian in name only, then you will not be afforded this protection. You must accept with all your heart, mind, and body, and be a living witness of being crucified daily. The world must be able to tell, you have been set apart from it.

Going to church does not make you a Christian. Living every moment of your life as though the Lord is walking besides you, is showing the world that you are His own. Fearing the Lord not being afraid of Him but revering Him is another way to show you are His own. It fills me with overflowing Joy, to know that God calls me His own, and that He can say that with pride, and I can say I am His with pride, knowing I mean it and am living it. This is a pure and wondrous joy for anyone who truly is His own. Do not get me wrong, we are not any of us perfect,but we are striving for perfection. Daily learning to be more like our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

In the end times,the Jews will be sacrificing once again,but it is for nothing in the sight of God,because He covered the price, the fee for us to be atoned for. Jesus Christ His son was the one time sacrifice needed. There is now no need to sacrifice for atonement. Our sins have been paid for with a hefty price,the life of the Perfect Lamb of God. Jesus lived a sinless perfect life here on earth, so that He would when the time came, be the lamb with no blemish or spot on Him.

That perfect sinless man, became our sin. He did not just take on our sin,He became it. He paid in every way possible for our sins. Physically,mentally,and spiritually did he experience death. He went down to the bowels of the earth, into hell or Hades, because spiritual death in hell is the price for sins. But He is alive, He has set us free and come back to life, and now resides in the place of honor, on the right hand of the Father. Praise Him all you people. But more than that give Him your life in return for His paying the price. This is the ONLY way to eternal life,through the one who died for you,the only son of God. He gave up his kingdom to come walk among us. To feel what we feel,to be tempted as we are tempted. Through it all, He maintained his perfection. What other God has done such a thing? None,there is no other God than the one true God.

Do not be guilty of being a Christian in name only. There is no in between with God, He wants your all or He wants none of you. There is no half way with the Lord. You are all of His, or you are none of His. When you think of standing before Him can you imagine you holding your head up high, knowing you gave everything you had to be more like Him? Or are you one who will hang your head in shame for not trying to be more holy? We can never be perfect on our own, but we are being perfected in Him, (Christ) more and more as we learn about Him. Then one day He is coming back and we will in a moment in a twinkling of an eye, be changed into perfect immortal spirits. We will be perfect in every way,never having to worry about sinning again. I cannot wait for that day!!!

I could, if I died right now, stand before the Lord knowing I gave Him every thing I had to give Him. Knowing that I could not love Him more if I tried. Knowing that I did my very best to be loving, kind, gentle, patient,giving. That I lived with the Holy Spirit guiding me. That I accepted and utilized the gifts the Lord has chosen for me. In short, being one of the church of Philadelphia. The churches are still alive and well and I am definitely considering myself one of the church of Philadelphia,one who will have the protection of the Lord through the end times. Are you? I will when the time comes explain better the churches that are in the book of Revelation.

The end times are going to be crazy,but we who are His own, truly His own, who live every day as though it were their last, who live with God on their mind always, with His pleasure, His will in their heart daily, will be protected and God never breaks a promise. Do you want His protection? Or are you one who says I could never love a God who could and would punish people? God is perfect Holiness and cannot look upon sin. And we are all born filthy sinners. Our littlest tiniest blemish or spot or wrinkle, would look so disgusting and filthy compared to God’s glory,and Holiness. It would be glaringly obvious to us, and we would hang our heads in shame. Do not be guilty of trying to make a god of your own choosing. God does not change for anyone or anything, and I personally would not want Him to. I love Him for all His ways, they are perfect.

Leviticus and the end times have one thing in common, sacrifices. One of those is God sanctioned, God approved atonement. The other is not. It is not wanted or appreciated by God. I feel sorry for those who do not know, that the Lord does not want or ask for it. They are going to be wasting their time for nothing. The end times will be noticeable for a few reasons,but one of those reasons will be that the Jews will have some sort of temple some sort of holy place, (according to them) to make sacrifices and hold temple meetings and such.

Then the antichrist will stop them from sacrificing and even desecrate the temple. The end of, the end times has not as of yet begun. The last seven years is not here yet. Soon it will be how soon no one knows. But when we see the temple being built in Jerusalem, and the 7 year treaty being signed by Israel, and some sort of leader of the world, we will know it is the beginning of those last years. We still have much to see. A one world government, and a one world currency. That has got to take some time, I know we Americans do not want to give up our sovereignty, I imagine other countries will buck this as well, for as long as they can.

God Bless us all, and don’t worry or be afraid, for our hope and promise is coming one day, and not too long from now. If it takes time, that is only because God is allowing for those who will come to Him, to come. He holds off for as long as He can, to get as many as will come to Him to come.

Love in Christ Jesus,Tammy
