Pope Francis Sides With Muslim Activist Groups Over Declaration Of Jerusalem As The Capital Of Israel

“Concerns about the prospective for peace in the region are the object in these days of various initiatives, among them meetings called urgently by the Arab League and the Organization for Islamic Cooperation,” the communiqué read.

On Sunday the Vatican issued a communiqué appealing for cooperation with groups like the Arab League that are concerned with the recent decision by the United States to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Before Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Pope Francis prayed that it would remain forever divided. In the aftermath of Trump’s decision, he now expresses support for the Arab League and the Organization For Islamic Cooperation. Can you guess which side the pope is rooting for?

“Concerns about the prospectives for peace in the region are the object in these days of various initiatives, among them meetings called urgently by the Arab League and the Organization for Islamic Cooperation,” the communiqué read.

“The Holy See is attentive to these concerns, and recalling the heartfelt words of Pope Francis, reiterates its well-known position concerning the singular character of the Holy City and the essential need for respecting the status quo, in conformity with the deliberations of the international community and the repeated requests of the hierarchies of the Churches and Christian communities of the Holy Land,” it said.

The statement came just days after U.S. President Donald Trump announced his decision to move the U.S. embassy to Israel from its present location in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as well as formally recognizing the Holy City as the capital of the Israeli state. The communiqué was released in both Italian and English.

On Wednesday, Pope Francis appealed for respect for the “status quo” in Jerusalem, after the United States announced the transfer of its embassy in Israel to the Holy City.

“My thoughts now turn to Jerusalem,” the Pope said in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall after his weekly General Audience. “I cannot remain silent about my deep concern for the situation that has been created in the last days.”

“At the same time, I would like to make a heartfelt appeal for everyone’s commitment to respect the city’s status quo, in conformity with the pertinent United Nations Resolutions,” he said.

On the same day, the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano published an article titled “Trump Inflames the Middle East,” describing U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel as igniting a powder keg in the region.

The article spoke of an increased “risk of terrorism in the region” as well as “mounting fears of possible demonstrations of protest and unrest.” The announcement has given rise to “profound perplexity” even within the Trump administration, the Vatican daily declared.

In its communiqué Sunday, the Vatican reiterated its “conviction that only a negotiated solution between Israelis and Palestinians can bring a stable and lasting peace, and guarantee the peaceful co-existence of two states within internationally recognized borders.”

The statement said that the Holy See “follows with great attention the developments of the situation in the Middle East, with special reference to Jerusalem, a sacred city for Christians, Jews and Muslims from all over the world.” source

Biblical Numerology and Torah Codes Reveal Messianic Trump-Cyrus Connection

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 11, 2017 , 12:30 pm

“Thus said Hashem to Cyrus, His anointed one— Whose right hand He has grasped, treading down nations before him, ungirding the loins of kings, opening doors before him and letting no gate stay shut.” Isaiah 45:1 (The Israel Bible™)

Many have seen similarities between the Biblical King Cyrus and President Donald Trump. (Breaking Israel News)

Connections between the US president and Persian King Cyrus, recently strengthened by President Donald Trump’s landmark speech acknowledging Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel, have deep roots in Bible Codes and Biblical numerology which link both men to the coming of the Messiah.

President Trump is similar to Cyrus in a number of observable ways, rabbis and commentators have noted. Though separated by 2,500 years, both men rule the greatest nation of their respective eras. Cyrus, like Trump, was powerful and rich but not at all devout. And like Cyrus, Trump supports Jewish national aspirations. Now, a Messianic connection has come to light.

The mysterious ties between Trump, Cyrus, and the Messiah are revealed through two mystical methods of understanding the Torah. Hebrew numerology, known as Gematria, gives Hebrew letters and words numerical values which uncover hidden meanings, while Bible Codes search the Torah for secret patterns and connections.

Cyrus’s connection to the Messiah is found in the Book of Isaiah. The Persian king is the only non-Jewish leader to be referred to in the Bible as Moshiach, literally ‘His anointed one’. The word for ‘anointed one’ in Hebrew is ‘Moshiach’ (משיח), which means “Messiah”.

Thus said Hashem to Cyrus, His anointed one— Whose right hand He has grasped, treading down nations before him, ungirding the loins of kings, opening doors before him and letting no gate stay shut. Isaiah 45:1

Trump’s connection is found through Gematria. Using the method to break down the value of Hebrew letters, Donald Trump’s name in Hebrew (דונלד טראמפ) equals 424 – which is also the numerical equivalent of ‘Moshiach for the House of David’ (משיח בן דוד).

Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, a Bible codes expert, also discovered Trump ties to Cyrus and Messiah within the codes. One week after the 2016 elections, Rabbi Glazerson produced a video in which he described clues found in Leviticus.

Rabbi Glazerson found the words ‘D. Trump’ and ‘president of the USA’ adjacent to the word ‘Koresh’ (‘Cyrus’ in Hebrew). All of these words were adjacent to the word ‘Moshiach’, used in that instance explicitly as a characteristic of an anointed priest.

And the anointed (moshiach) kohen shall take some of the bull’s blood and bring it into the Tent of Meeting. Leviticus 4:5

“Definitely Trump is not Moshiach,” Rabbi Glazerson cautioned, explaining the unique connection.

“Koresh was called Moshiach because he helped the Jews to settle Israel and to start building the Second Temple. Trump is like Koresh because he is supposed to help the Jews in Israel, maybe to build the Temple.”

The Trump-Cyrus connection was acknowledged even before the election by many Evangelical Christians who supportedTrump’s campaign promise to establish Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Evangelical speaker Lance Wallnau wrote a best-selling book on the subject titled God’s Chaos Candidate.

“It’s not a normal election and so we almost need a different kind of candidate,” Wallanu said in an interview with CBN News just before the election. “Trump has the Cyrus anointing to navigate in chaos. [Cyrus] came in, this king, as a secular ruler and decreed for the building of the house of the Lord. He literally made it possible for the Jews to end the captivity.”

Wallanu pointed out that as the 45th president of the United States, Trump would embody the 45th chapter of Isaiah, in which Persian King Cyrus rebuilds the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

Trump has personally embraced the connection with the Persian king. In March, President Trump issued an officialstatement on the occasion of Nowruz, the Persian New Year, in which he quoted King Cyrus.

“[F]reedom, dignity, and wealth together constitute the greatest happiness of humanity. If you bequeath all three to your people, their love for you will never die,” the quote read.

After President Trump’s historic announcement last Wednesday, approximately 250 Israeli rabbis signed a letter of gratitude initiated by Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, Chief Rabbi of Tzfat. In an interview with Israel National News, Rabbi Eliyahu explained that his motives for sending the letter were actuated by comparisons between the American president and Cyrus.

“We mentioned to him in the letter that when [the Prophet] Nehemiah came to Cyrus, to establish Jerusalem, to strengthen and fortify its position, all kinds of people of little faith stood among the gentiles and – to our shame – from the elite of our own people, and sought to stop this,” Rabbi Eliyahu said.

“But [Cyrus] was determined to do God’s will and the designs of the other people collapsed, and eventually they too understood that God’s will would be done.”

Rabbi Hillel Weiss (Facebook)

Last year, the nascent Sanhedrin felt the connection between Trump and Cyrus was so strong that it sent a letter to the newly elected president calling on him to build the Temple. In light of Trump’s recent declaration concerning Jerusalem, the Sanhedrin acknowledges this connection has materialized, but is cautious of how this will play out in the current political environment.

“Cyrus’ actions would have been pointless, would have been forgotten in history, had they not culminated in the Second Temple,” Rabbi Weiss pointed out to Breaking Israel News. “Trump did not do this.”

“If he leaves us without the Temple Mount then his grand announcement amounts to nothing and will actually cause great harm,” the rabbi warned. “The United Nations and the Palestinians cunningly refer to East Jerusalem in order to hide their true intentions of leaving Israel without their true capital. President Trump said he was establishing the capital of Israel, and this absolutely must be based around the Temple.

“If Trump, like Cyrus, helps reestablish the Temple, it will strengthen America, just as Cyrus established a powerful and flourishing empire after taking part in building the Temple.”

 

  Zec_12:2  Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling…

Image result for jerusalem

I would like to establish the historical fact of how Jerusalem came under the Israelis’ possession in a few out of dozens of selected verses of Scripture.

Jos_18:28  And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem, Gibeath, and Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.

1Ki_2:11  And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.

1Ki_3:1  And Solomon made affinity with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and took Pharaoh’s daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the LORD, and the wall of Jerusalem round about.

2Ki_21:4  And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name.

The Word of YAHWEH attests that from the early days [Joshua’s leadership], Jerusalem  belong to the Israeli. You might say that is ancient history!  

However,  let us now learn from a short historical fact in modern history as quoted from Worthy Brief of December 06, 2017:

Begin quote

He never slumbers or sleeps!

Psalms 121:4 Behold, he that keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

As U.S. President Donald Trump prepares to announce Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, it comes at a historical time as it will be 100 years (2 Jubilee cycles) nearly to the day when Jerusalem was liberated from the Ottoman Empire by the British in 1917. And in 1917, when the British entered into Jerusalem, it was 400 years (8 Jubilee cycles) to the day of when the Turks initially entered Jerusalem in 1517. So this month will mark 500 years (10 Jubilee Cycles) since the Ottomans first captured the holy city. Historically, it will also mark 50 years (1 Jubilee Cycle) since Jerusalem was liberated in the Six Days War in 1967.

We’re living in a unique time in history, as once again Israel finds herself surrounded by enemies with few friends willing to stand with her. So often we are asked, and we wonder, how things will turn out … we’ve found it’s usually foolish to try and predict; but one thing is absolutely certain; the God of Israel is watching over this tiny nation!

I want to share a brief history lesson about the liberation of Jerusalem. Early in 1917, John Hilton, a mechanic in the British Royal Flying Corps, attended church one Sunday morning. Noticing Hilton’s uniform, a clergyman approached and told him, having read Isaiah 31, he believed that airplanes would be used by the English air force to deliver Jerusalem into British hands. He was right…but only partly…

Months later, General Allenby was seeking advice from London as he prepared to liberate Jerusalem from 400 years of Turkish rule. He received a wire from London. The wire quoted Isaiah 31:4-5, “For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof. As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem, defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.”

After receiving the wire, Allenby called for planes to fly low over Jerusalem, dropping leaflets warning the Turks of his coming. When the Turks picked up the leaflets and read the name Allenby, they heard, “Allah en Nebi”, which, in Arabic, means “Prophet of Allah”, so they surrendered Jerusalem without firing a shot!

A tenth century Islamic poet with which they were familiar, had written, “The man who will conquer Jerusalem and redeem it from the infidel for all time to come will enter the Holy City humbly on foot, and his name is God’s prophet.”

In respect for the city of his savior’s death and resurrection, Allenby dismounted his horse and walked into Jerusalem on foot. The liberation of Jerusalem took place the first day of Chanukah, the feast of dedication, in 1917.

The creative providence of our God is astounding in its details, and sometimes even reveals His sense of humor. He is not asleep, and His resources are far beyond our ability to comprehend. Who could have imagined that the name of an English general and the verse of an Islamic poet, would be the combination for a bloodless victory which would also fulfill an ancient Hebrew scripture?? So, we believe, in our present situation, again, God’s deliverance will come in the most unexpected ways. How He will do it this time? Watch for the unexpected ways He will work…even in your own situation!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love,

Jerusalem Is About To Become A Cup Of Trembling As Trump Considers Historic Move

News Image By Michael Snyder/End Of The American Dream December 01, 2017


Is President Trump about to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel?   If so, this would be one of the most historic events to happen in the Middle East in a very long time.
Needless to say, the government of Israel would be absolutely thrilled by such a move, while the Palestinians and Israel’s neighbors would not be pleased at all.
In fact, some Palestinians have suggested that if the Trump administration actually moves the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem that it could spark widespread violence or even war.
But Donald Trump promised that he would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel during the campaign, and it looks like he intends to keep his word…
A senior U.S. administration official said on Thursday that President Donald Trump is considering recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel without moving the embassy to the Israeli capital, at least for the time being.
Trump wants the recognition of Jerusalem to be a gift to Israel on the occasion of its 70th Independence Day, and he may even announce this recognition by means of a statement to be made by Vice President Mike Pence, who will visit Israel in December.
Pence will be visiting Israel next month, and he is scheduled to deliver an address to the Knesset.  If the Trump administration is going to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, it is believed that it may happen at that time.
Israel became a nation in 1948, and so 2018 will be Israel’s 70th anniversary.  There will be independence celebrations throughout the year, and recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as we approach this highly significant time would be considered a great gift to the Jewish people.
For the moment, however, the Trump administration will not be moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.  The White House recognizes that such a move could spark violence in the region, and so administration officials are treading carefully…
President Donald Trump and his senior aides are mulling a plan to eventually move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a decision that could derail Trump’s attempts to restart peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
A leading option under consideration: temporarily keeping the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv while also outlining a longer-term strategy to begin the process of moving the embassy to Jerusalem, according to two administration officials. The plan is meant to strike a middle ground on the politically treacherous issue.
We shall see how this plays out, but Vice-President Mike Pence sure sounds optimistic that moving the embassy will actually happen.  Earlier this week, he posted the following message on Twitter…
While for the past 20 years, Congress and successive administrations have expressed a willingness to move our embassy, @POTUS Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. #70toIsraelUN
Of course moving the embassy would have very serious ramifications, and without a doubt many those surrounding Trump are advising against such a move…
American intelligence circles may caution Trump against the move, warning of the security-related ramifications that could ensue and danger that it could pose to American embassies around the world.
Rumors of Trump’s planned announcement were met with warnings from Jordan’s King Abdullah II, who said during a visit to the US that “the transfer of the American embassy to Jerusalem at this stage will have repercussions in the Palestinian, Arab and Islamic scene.”
I will be even more blunt.  If the U.S. embassy is moved to Jerusalem, there will definitely be violence, and it could potentially move us closer to armed conflict in the Middle East.
But U.S. policy should never be dictated by threats of violence.  Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem is the right thing to do, and we cannot allow anyone to intimidate us.  In 1995, Congress passed a law that requires the U.S. embassy to be moved to Jerusalem, but ever since then presidents have used “waivers” to delay the move.
The current “waiver” expires on December 1st, and Trump is expected to sign another one at that time.
But even if the U.S. embassy is not moved to Jerusalem any time soon, the truth is that the next major war in the Middle East seems to be getting closer with each passing day.  Just check out some of the things that have happened over the past week…
-Saudi Arabia just intercepted another ballistic missile that was fired from Yemen.  The civil war in Yemen is essentially a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and the Saudis hold the Iranians directly responsible whenever a missile is fired toward their territory.
-China has announced that they will be sending “elite troops” into Syria to fight alongside the Syrian army in the ongoing civil war that is raging there.
-Just a few days ago, the Pentagon acknowledged that there are approximately 2,000 U.S. troops currently in Syria working with forces that would like to overthrow the Syrian government.
The Middle East is a tinderbox that could literally erupt at any moment.  Most Americans have absolutely no idea how close we are to a major regional war, and let us pray that one does not happen any time soon.

Morning Joe Calls For 25th Amendment To Be Invoked To Have President Trump Removed From Office By Force

The hosts of Morning Joe are using their show to rally members of Trump’s cabinet remove the president from office. This cabinet-led coup could happen via the 25th Amendment, host Joe Scarborough said Friday. That amendment to the Constitution, adopted in 1967, deals with replacing a president who is no longer able to “discharge the powers and duties of his office,” which these hosts say applies to Trump due to his apparent mental incapacitation.

The hosts of Morning Joe are using their show to rally members of Trump’s cabinet remove the president from office.

“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.” The 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution, Article 4

EDITOR’S NOTE: How desperately sad and pathetic it is when all the Liberals can do is call for impeachment and military coups to try and stop President Trump from draining the swamp. Libs would do well to remember that Trump beat 16 Republican opponents in the primaries, beat a bought-and-paid for by the fake news media candidate Crooked Hillary, and continues to win or battle to a draw every fight he has had in the year he has been president. So rage on, little snowflakes, rage on. Trump will mop you up after you’ve melted. #maga

This cabinet-led coup could happen via the 25th Amendment, host Joe Scarborough said Friday. That amendment to the Constitution, adopted in 1967, deals with replacing a president who is no longer able to “discharge the powers and duties of his office,” which these hosts say applies to Trump due to his apparent mental incapacitation.

“If you’ve been around mental health issues in your life … the pressure heightens, it gets worse,” Donny Deutsch said Friday. “And we should be frightened right now. We should be — there is nothing glib about it.”

“At what point do you go to article 25? [sic]” Deutsch asked.

Deutsch said he’s able to diagnose a change in Trump’s mental state: “I have known him for 20 years and I’ve spent hours and hours with him, everything from negotiating leases to at-school functions to hours and hours of interviewing him on my old show. He’s not the same guy. You can see it in his eyes and in his speech pattern, and most frighteningly his behavior. I think there’s something else happening here. If you’ve been around mental illness and whatnot, I think he’s feeling the noose around his neck tightening with Mueller.”

“So take a guy who is mentally unstable,” Deutsch continued. “Now put a gun closer — metaphorically, closer and closer to his head, and I think that’s what you’re seeing this week. I think there’s a new level, and I think we’re going to see it heightened as these two stories are coming together. His mental health and the Russian inquiry are coming together and it’s going to crescendo in even more insane behavior.”

Scarborough also predicted Trump’s mental health would deteriorate.

“My mom has dementia,” Scarborough said. “She had pre-dementia for several years. My father’s death, the pressure of that, is when we really lost her. And so it got exponentially worse very first. The more pressure you’re under in this — if this is, in fact, the problem, the worse it gets.”

Scarborough said that Trump confidantes agree with him that Trump has “mentally devolved.”

“There is no doubt mentally, and maybe it’s the pressure of the campaign and this, everybody that’s known Trump for years says he has mentally devolved, and I just want to know when it’s safe to start talking about it and writing about it,” he said.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson said mental health experts warned him that Trump’s behavior would get worse.

“I mean, it’s just extraordinary. How much worse can it get?” he asked. “I fear it can get worse, and the people who are professionals in mental health frankly tell me this doesn’t get better. This probably won’t get better. It’s not going to resolve itself somehow. And as you said, he tends to want to escape the people who could keep him on the straight and narrow, so maybe we need to shut down Mar-a-Lago.”

During a conversation about Trump’s retweets that caught the ire of British lawmakers, Deutsch went further, declaring that this behavior shows he’s a “sociopath.”

“And you know who does things without any thinking about repercussions?” he asked. “A sociopath.”

On Thursday, Scarborough said the 25th Amendment was created for situations like this.

“He is completely detached from reality, we had a New York Times and Washington Post piece saying so a couple of days ago, and the question is Mika,” Scarborough said, “if this is not what the 25th Amendment was drafted for, I would like the cabinet members serving America, not serving the president” to act accordingly.

“He is completely detached from reality, we had a New York Times and Washington Post piece saying so a couple of days ago, and the question is Mika,” Scarborough said, “if this is not what the 25th Amendment was drafted for, I would like the cabinet members serving America, not serving the president” to act accordingly.

On Friday, Scarborough was more circumspect, though still advocating for removing Trump from office.

“The 25th Amendment, again, Mika, it wasn’t put for a situation like this,” Scarborough said. “It’s hard to wonder — it’s very complicated, but you do wonder.” source

 

DARPA Begins Experiments To Change People’s Behavior By Implanting Microchips In Their Brains

Artificial intelligence in microchip implants will detect and study the brain to know what pulses to send – described by scientists as a “window on the brain”. DARPA has handed the cash to teams form the University of California and Massachusetts General Hospital.
darpa-microchip-brain-implants

Microchips implanted into people’s skulls are being developed by boffins funded by the US military’s research division DARPA.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Just a few years ago, a story like this would have lit up social media, and people would rightly be connecting human implantable microchips with the coming Mark Of The Beast during the time of Jacob’s trouble. But as technology like iPhones with facial recognition are now becoming commonplace, we are losing our fear of invasive technology and embracing it. They don’t even make credit or debit cards without the chip now, no longer optional. ‘Life on a chip’ is exactly what the Bible say coming 2,000 years ago. And oh, ‘boffins’ is British slang for someone who does scientific research

These implants will use electronic pulses to alter the chemicals in people’s brains in a process called “deep brain stimulation”. This will then change people’s moods and is believed to be able to treat mental illness and provide therapy.

Artificial intelligence in microchip implants will detect and study the brain to know what pulses to send – described by scientists as a “window on the brain”. DARPA has handed the cash to teams form the University of California and Massachusetts General Hospital.

Testing suggestions the mood implants can be used to treat disorders such as Parkinson’s. Experiments have been also carried out on people with depression – but the the results are inconclusive so far.

DARPA Implants Chips In U.S. Soldiers’ Brains

DARPA is funding the project with the long-term goal of being able treat traumatised soldiers.

The current work – which includes human testing – was presented at the Society of Neuroscience in Washington, reports Nature.

Neuroscientist Edward Chang said: “The exciting thing about these technologies is that for the first time we’re going to have a window on the brain where we know what’s happening in the brain when someone relapses.”

He added: “We’ve learned a lot about the limitations of our current technology,”

Chang also denied the technology will be able to ready people’s minds, explaining they will simply “have access to activity that encodes their feelings”. Scientists hope the new implant will allow doctors and scientists are window into people’s minds.

This will also personalized treatments for people to better treat illnesses and regulate feelings. Dementia and Alzheimer’s are also hoped to be treated using the implants. source

If Satan Is As Great As He Thinks He Is, Then Why Does He Pretend To Be Jesus In The Time Of Jacob’s Trouble?

You will find Satan’s weeds existing in nearly every culture, counterfeits of the deeds of God recorded throughout time. God even allowed Satan to publish the first book, the Egyptian Book Of The Dead, that predates the start of the Bible. Why would God do this? Simple. God has given Satan every advantage, every angle and allowed him to use every trick in the book so that when the Devil is defeated at the Battle of Armageddon, his fall will be without precedence. It will be the greatest defeat in human history, watched by the entire world, as the Devil and his army get crushed like grapes in a winepress.
lucifer-wants-to-be-jesus-christ-satan-devil-defeated

How it must gall Satan to know that, even after the Rapture of the Church when there won’t be one saved person on the Earth for a period of time, that he still cannot come as himself because even unsaved people really don’t want him. For a creature who is nothing but evil and ego, what a crushing blow this must be!

“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14 (KJV)

While driving my daughter to work this morning, she told me someone made a comment about Jesus she had no answer for. She said that a friend had mentioned to her that he believed there have been “multiple Jesus” throughout time and history, and that they did not see how there could be just one.

Many times in my Christian walk I have heard this before. People will cite the Egyptian virgin mother and child of Isis and Horus, with a father called Osiris who rises from the dead. Sounds a whole lot like Mary and Jesus, doesn’t it? And it appeared in Egyptian and Babylonian sources thousands of years before the actual Jesus was born. To the new believer and the unbeliever, this can be very, very confusing to say the least.

That is, until you begin to understand the true nature of the creature named Lucifer the light bearer who became Satan, our adversary.

Lucifer got into fatal trouble as recorded in the book of Isaiah, where he asserts that he will “be like the most High”, and take His Throne. We read in the book of Job where God actually allows Satan to accuse Him, and seems to treat the Devil on a near-equal peer level. But haven’t you ever thought it odd that Lucifer had no “new plan” to present? The best he could do is to want to steal what Someone else had already created.

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” Isaiah 14:12-14 (KJV)

Flash-forward all the way to the New Testament and we begin to read about a period of time many call the Great Tribulation, but the Bible calls it the time of Jacob’s trouble.

“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7 (KJV)

If you are a student of the Bible at nearly any level, you know that the star of that time period is none other than Satan himself. But the funny thing is, and it really didn’t dawn on me until just this morning, is that in order to make his arrival successful and be able to “sell it” to an unsaved world in the days after the Rapture of the Church, Satan has to pretend to be Jesus Christ. I mean, we all know why he is called Antichrist, because he pretends to be Christ. But he has to do this because he isn’t good enough, slick enough or talented enough to take the stage as himself.

“Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.” Matthew 24:23-25 (KJV)

For 6,000 years now, Satan has gone everywhere God has planted a flower and sowed a weed that looked like a flower. He has made sure that many of the events recorded in the Bible as historical facts were already planted in other cultures in the form of myths. He hasn’t had one original idea, just an endless litany of taking what God has already done and trying to ruin it.

How it must gall Satan to know that, even after the Rapture of the Church when there won’t be one saved person on the Earth for a period of time, that he still cannot come as himself because even unsaved people really don’t want him. For a creature who is nothing but evil and ego, what a crushing blow this must be!

So yes, you will find Satan’s weeds existing in nearly every culture, counterfeits of the deeds of God recorded throughout time. God even allowed Satan to publish the first book, the Egyptian Book Of The Dead, that predates the start of the Bible. Why would God do this, and let Satan’s junk appear in writing before God’s own word?

Simple.

God has given Satan every advantage, every angle and allowed him to use every trick in the book so that when the Devil is defeated at the Battle of Armageddon, his fall will be without precedence. It will be the greatest defeat in human history, watched by the entire world, as the Devil and his army get crushed like grapes in a winepress.

  • What the prophet Isaiah foresaw and spoke of here in the past:

“I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.” Isaiah 63:3,4 (KJV)

  • The apostle John sees fulfilled here at the Battle of Armageddon which is still yet future:

“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” Revelation 19:11-13 (KJV)

Remember, Satan needs to be a counterfeit Jesus, so he has planted a phony jesus just about everywhere you look. The Mormon jesus is said to be the “brother of Lucifer”, my my, how pandering he is to himself. The Jehovah’s Witness jesus is a pretty good guy, but not God as the Bible says He is. The Roman Catholic jesus can only be accessed through the “virgin mother”, and can only forgive sins through a gay or pedophile priest via the non-Biblical “sacraments” not found anywhere in the Bible.

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they bet hrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” Colossians 1:16,17 (KJV)

The actual Jesus is found in the pages of the preserved word of God, just pick up a King James Bible and see for yourself. The actual Jesus created everything, including Lucifer, and everything consists within the being of Jesus Christ.

Jesus is unparalleled, unprecedented. Do YOU know Him?

He’s enduringly strong. He’s entirely sincere. He’s eternally steadfast. He’s immortally graceful. He’s imperially powerful. He’s impartially merciful. That’s my King. He’s God’s Son. He’s the sinner’s saviour. He’s the centerpiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. He’s honest. He’s unique. He’s unparalleled. He’s unprecedented. He’s supreme. He’s pre-eminent. He’s the grandest idea in literature. He’s the highest personality in philosophy. He’s the supreme problem in higher criticism. He’s the fundamental doctrine of true theology. He’s the only One qualified to be an all-sufficient Saviour.

That’s my King! Is He yours?
