Who is the antichrist?

The antichrist has not come yet!

The coming end of time on this earth, the last years of time, will be known by the indisputable events taking shape when there will come in that time a rise to power of one ruler over this whole earth (Daniel 9:16, 11:45).

“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time” (1 John 2:18).

Jesus foretold of this period of great trouble not since time began or ever will be again, “And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days” (Mark 13:20).

“When ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judæa flee to the mountains” (Mark 13:14).

End Of Days

 

Believe the word of God

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:16-18).

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:19).

“For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (1 Corinthians 1:21).

Power is only of God

“God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God” (Psalm 62:11).

“The Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power; that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” (1 Corinthians 4:20, 2:5).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:16-18).

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

World Peace?

The headline “World Peace” continues to be pronounced as an end goal of many among us. But, is there ever going to be peace on this earth?

When Jesus was here he said: “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division. For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law” (Luke 12:51).

Therefore, do not be deceived by pronouncements of world peace because the prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan knows he has a “…short time…” (Revelation 12:12); and he is using every possible means to deceive the whole world into thinking that one day there is going to have peace here on earth (Revelation 13:14).

“For when they shall say, peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

“For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:35-36).

Peace in Jerusalem?

Why will there never be lasting peace in Jerusalem?

God made a covenant with Abraham saying: “Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites” (Genesis 15:18-21).

Furthermore, in later generations God commanded Moses and then Joshua to drive our all these nations. However, all these nations could not be driven out because the generation of the children of Israel after Joshua’s death soon forgot their covenant with God that they must not mingle with the people of these nations and to served their gods. As a result the angel of God reminded them of the word of God as spoken by Joshua before his death. As a consequence of the rebellion of the children of Israel God did not drive out all the nations as he promised their fathers with the covenant made with Abraham.

“And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and he said, because that this people hath transgressed my covenant which I commanded their fathers, and have not hearkened unto my voice; I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of the nations which Joshua left when he died” (Judges 2:20-21).

The nations which remained that lived among the children of Israel were the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites (Judges 3:5). Today, many countries lay claim to Jerusalem, and after years of peace negotiations, there has not been any resolution. Many people hope that one day there will be lasting peace in Jerusalem. However, by the word of God there will never be lasting peace. In time past, the word of God came unto the prophet Ezekiel saying:

“Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts; ‘Hear ye the word of the LORD; thus saith the LORD God; woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing. To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, [AND WHICH SEE VISIONS OF PEACE FOR HER, AND THERE IS NO PEACE],’ saith the LORD God” (Ezekiel 13:2–3, 16).

The Lord’s Prayer is not open to any interpretation

Jesus was very clear when he expressed “that men ought always to pray, and not to faint” (Luke 18:1).

“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:6-8).

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen (Matthew 6:9-13).

The word of God is not open to any private interpretation.

In a recent article it was written:

“Pope Francis wants to change line of ‘Our Father’. Specifically, the Catholic leader said in an interview Wednesday he would prefer to adjust the phrase “lead us not into temptation,” saying that it too strongly suggested that God leads people to sin.
“That is not a good translation,” the pope said, according to Reuters.
The phrase “do not let us fall into temptation,” which the Catholic Church in France has previously decided to use, would be a more appropriate alternative, Francis said.”

Absolutely, no person has the power or authority to change any word of God because the word of God is not open to any private interpretation.

“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2 Peter 1:19–21).

“Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him” (Proverbs 30:5).

“Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

What is the key sign of the coming of Jesus and the End of the World?

What is the key sign of the coming of Jesus and the end of the world?

Jesus says: “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, ‘I am Christ;’ and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4–5).

What then is the key sign?

Jesus says: “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)” (Matthew 24:15).

“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judæa flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled” (Luke 21:16-22).

“And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory” (Luke 21:24-27).

End Of Days

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord” (Matthew 23:37-39).

“AND Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matthew 24:1-3).

Time is ticking away

Time as we read this word is ticking away; literally ticking away. As a movie clicking away at the last frames which will soon end, or as water pouring out of a glass which will become empty, so too one day time will run out and this earth will pass away (1 Peter 21:33) (Mark 13:31) (2 Peter 3:10).

There is no stopping time, changing time, or reversing time because at the set time, habitation on this earth will end (Revelation 11:18). Since God has appointed the time of habitation of this earth and that of every life on this earth, we would be best to seek to obtain that which God has hidden for us before the beginning of time. This is the most important decision of our life, which we need to be on time for in our lifetime, because one day time will come to a full end (Revelation 10:5-6).

“Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof” (Isaiah 24:1). “And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, ‘It is done.’” (Revelation 16:17–18, 20–21).
