The Lord of Glory, The Second Coming of Christ Jesus

The Coming of Christ in Glory

Book of Revelation Chapter 19 Verse 11 through 21

The one event that much of the world has been talking about and waiting on from the beginning is the “Coming of the Messiah”.

Most every religion has some sort of a messiah!

For the Church we know that the Messiah has already come to this earth and He first came to die to bring a means of salvation to everyone if they would just believe Him before they died.

For the Church we know that the Messiah would return!

His return is in two stages!

1) He will first come to take His Church away because of the promise that His Church would not see His wrath poured out upon those who rejected Him. He would come as a thief, in a cloud, unseen to the human eye.

2) He would then return in full view with the armies of Heaven and rid this earth of sin, and to fulfill certain promises He made to the Hebrew children, the Jews.

This time had come!

We know the Messiah is the Lord Jesus Christ and to us, He is the Lamb of God, the Husband of the Bride.

The Church is the Bride and since the Church was caught out from this earth, the Judgment Seat of Christ has taken place, the wedding of the Church, the Bride of Christ, has taken place, and the Church has accompanied the Lord to begin a one thousand year honey moon upon this earth that will be remade after the wars of Armageddon.

How had the Lord first come?

Mat 21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
Mat 21:6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
Mat 21:7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.
Mat 21:8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.
Mat 21:9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
Mat 21:10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
Mat 21:11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

In our lesson today we will witness the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

He will be coming as a victorious King!

Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

King of Israel as told to King David, and as King of His creation exposing the lies of Satan!

Why are so many things happening upon this earth that seem to cause harm? All His creation is right now groaning in anticipation of His Second Coming.

Rom 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

*Rev 19:11 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.

How do we know this is the Messiah?

He is called “Faithful”. The Lord Jesus Christ is “Faithful”! He will do exactly what He says He will do, every time.

The only thing that moves the hand of God away from His wrath, is repentance!

We can rely on the Lord to do as He says!

He is called “True”. There is no one and nothing that are more true, than the Word of God and our Lord and Savior!

Truth is the complete opposite of false!

Rom 3:3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
Rom_3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

There is nothing in the hands or the heart of man that can overcome the truth of God!

Every evil and wicked person can count on the Lord to be true whether they believe or not!

He will be true in His “judgment” and He will be “faithful” to His Word!

He is returning to this earth to “judge” all those who have rejected Him and to make war with Satan and those with Him who want a war!

It should be obvious that the liberals including the liberal media want a war and a war they will have, but they are on the losing side!

Why will the Lord make war? Because it is the right thing to do to appease Himself for the mistreatment of His followers and because He said He would.

He will be fulfilling all remaining prophesy when He returns this Second Time!

*Rev 19:12 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.

We should clearly understand that when we see Jesus, we will not be confused about who He is!

It will be obvious that we are in the presence of the Almighty God!

His eyes speak of His omniscience.

He wears many crowns, but these are not the garland crown of the rider in Chapter 6.

These are the true crowns of power as the Lord Jesus is the ruler of all nations and He comes as the Supreme King of this earth.

And He had a name written that no one upon the earth knew.

As Christians we know Him as “Faithful” and “True”.

He comes as King of this world and the true King of Israel!

He comes in “righteousness” because this is His unchanging character!

Before He sits as King, He must first be Judge and Executioner!

The Apostle Paul wrote by the Holy Spirit:

Act 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
Act 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
Act 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Because He is the Almighty God, He is beyond the reach of human intellect.

It is inconceivable that such a God as He can truly exist, until you have known Him!

None of us truly know just how “Great Is Our God” nor can we know!

Our greatest treasure of the description of our God is the “Written Word of God” that He has given to us!

*Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

The war the Lord Jesus has caused to happen is like no other war that has ever taken place!

His vesture is dipped in blood because it is He who fought the battle.

We will notice in the next passages that the clothing of the armies of Heaven are still wearing their white fine linen.

Rev 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Psa 58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
Psa 58:11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.

Isa 63:1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
Isa 63:2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?
Isa 63:3 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.
Isa 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.

The Lord does not need an army to fight the Battle of Armageddon!

He alone will fight this battle.

He will bring us along as Judges and to be kings and Priests in the nations that remain.

The angels come because they will be needed.

The Hebrew children will take care of the rebuilt Temple and serve the Lord.

He is called the Word of God because every bit of the information in the Bible has proven to be true and our Savior, King Jesus is the truth.

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus is the only one wearing bloody garments!

*Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

Does anyone want to know what our clothing requirements will be in Heaven.

Fine linen, white and clean.

Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

The Bride of Christ is on a honeymoon all our battle garments left behind when the Lord took us home to be with Him forever.

Wherever He goes we go!

Jud 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
Jud 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

I believe these horses to be literal as animals that exist in Heaven.

The Lord on the other hand has some special things that go with Him in the times of His wrath.

*Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Back in Chapter 16 we read about the seven last plagues. This sharp sword is the tool used by the Lord and it means that when the Lord speaks things happen.

In has been that way since the beginning of time!

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

God spoke His creation into existence and when He speaks things just take place just as He directs them to take place!

We know that there will be those who refused to take the “Mark of the Beast”.

We know that many of them became martyrs but not all.

We know the Lord has protected the Hebrew children throughout the Great Tribulation.

The Bible mentions some who helped these Hebrews some say Jews.

There will be many alive when the Battle of Armageddon is over, though many multitudes will die.

All those who took the Mark of the Beast, and all those who worshipped his image will all have been slaughtered.

These that are left will live and multiply during the one thousand years that King Jesus will rule this earth.

We see that King Jesus will rule with a “rod of iron” which means those who are alive will follow the written Word of God exactly as God intended.

There will be no deviation.
There will be no other laws of man.

But there will be no Satan to cause problems.
There will be no temptation to sin.

There will be a remade earth where there will be all things supplied that are needed.

There will still be work to do because the Lord will still hate laziness!

The Lord will rule all nations.

The Saints will sit in places to judge, places to guide, and places to worship to assist all people.

By the way there will be no discrimination!

Once the wrath of God subsides, we will all see our loving Savior!

Isa 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
Isa 11:5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
Isa 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
Isa 11:7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
Isa 11:8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.
Isa 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

*Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

As long as Jesus has been in Heaven, He has been our Advocate and he still wore the garments of as the Highest of High Priest.

As He returns to earth, He will wear the garments of a King, in fact King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

There is no higher authority than the Lord Jesus Christ.

We see the King of Kings and Lord of Lords as He has completed His battle.

The blood showing that the war of Armageddon is over, and the victorious King of the Jews is returning but also the High Priest who has made the sacrifice for sin.

Isa 63:3 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.

The feast prepared for the beast and the fowl of the earth has been made ready!

*Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
Rev 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

This day was foretold by most all the prophets:

Eze 39:17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
Eze 39:18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
Eze 39:19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

We might ask, How could we see an angel standing in the sun?

I believe this is the Lord for there is none more glorious than the Lord. The Sun is dim when compared to the glory of the Lord!

Isa 34:8 For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.

Remember the blood will flow as deep as the bridle of the war horse, so many of the armies of the Beast have been slaughtered.

The appointed kings of the Beast will be with their armies.

The Lord has controlled the air and all air power was His own!

The Lord has stopped all sea power as the blood of the waters had caused all in the seas to perish including the ships and submarines.

It is only the land-based militaries that could come to Armageddon for destruction.

Remember the Lord has told us of these things for more than 2000 years.

These armies were mere puppets led to their death by the Antichrist.

Remember the False Church had been crushed by the Beast and he assumed the power of the false church.
The political system has failed, and some kings had left, and the Antichrist had placed new kings in their place.

The Apostle Peter said because we know all these things it should affect the way we live today.

2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2Pe 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2Pe 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
2Pe 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
2Pe 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

We must reject any and all sin in our lives!

We have no right to take advantage of the “Grace of God”, knowing the end of all these who reject the Lord.

We must be ever thankful for a Lord Jesus who took such pain just so we could miss out on the wrath of God!

The war of the Antichrist ended before he realized it had started!

*Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

When John saw the army of the Antichrist he would have been astounded. Remember this army is so large that at their death the blood will flow as deep as the bridle of a horse in this valley, where this war will take place.

Rev_14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

A furlong is an eighth of a mile. Six thousand and six hundred furlongs is 825 miles.

We know that just one nation had a 2 million-man army and all the armies of the world are gathered against Israel.

Satan thinks he brought this army but in fact it is the Lord who has gathered this army!

Have you ever heard that saying “too many chiefs and not enough Indians”?

We have the greatest “human” (empowered by Satan) military commander who has ever lived, the Anichrist.

He has brought with him his own spiritual leader (the false prophet).

He has brought with him his (ten) hand-picked kings of the earth and their armies.

There are stories in the Bible of what happens when there are too many leaders.

They have come for one reason. To eliminate Israel and all the Jews from the face of the earth.

The Hebrew children have Jehovah’s promise that He would fulfill the promise made to King David.

2Sa 7:10 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,
2Sa 7:11 And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.
2Sa 7:12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.
2Sa 7:13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.
2Sa 7:14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:
2Sa 7:15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.
2Sa 7:16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.

Psa 89:3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,
Psa 89:4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.

Psa 89:27 Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
Psa 89:28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
Psa 89:29 His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

Psa 89:33 Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
Psa 89:34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
Psa 89:35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.
Psa 89:36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
Psa 89:37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.

Since this unbreakable Covenant was made by Jehovah, who cannot lie, then the outcome of this war is already known!

The first thing the Lord does is remove the Beast.
The next thing the Lord does is remove the False prophet and both of them are tossed “alive”, into the Burning Lake of Fire.

The next thing the Lord does is to begin the slaughter of these 10’s of millions in these great armies, with most of them killing each other.

Joe 3:12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
Joe 3:13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
Joe 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
Joe 3:15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
Joe 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

*Rev 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

It will be a very short war!

We get no written account accept, for the beginning of this battle and the ending of this battle with the Lord having victory.

There is not one word of the fighting or the engagement because there is no power on earth that can compare to the omnipotence of our Lord!

Remember the Lord has “all power”!

In the end we humans are nothing but dust!

Psa_103:14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

Ecc 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
Ecc 12:8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.

All that humans can do in the face of the Almighty God, will be in vain!

The remaining chapters deal with the victory of the Lamb.

Amen

Trouble Is Coming The AntiChrist

The Coming Time of Trouble

Book of Daniel Chapters 11-12

As we continue in these lessons in the Book of Daniel, we have seen that the Holy Spirit gave Daniel a realistic view of world history, before it was history.

Next, let me say up front, I am not qualified to go this deep into prophesy so we will go as far as we can.

We have seen since the time of Nebuchadnezzar the accuracy of these Scriptures.

In these two Chapters in the Book of Daniel we will meet the Antichrist.

The term Antichrist is used in two ways in the Scriptures.

1) An antichrist is anyone is anyone who denies that Jesus has come in in the form of a human. In fact 100% human and 100% Jehovah God!

1Jn 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is Antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
1Jn 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
1Jn 2:24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

2) Then we have the antichrist, the man of Sin.

2Th 2:3 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;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

The Beast of the Book of Revelation:

Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

Satan, who is the true Antichrist, will arise in the end times of our history and seek to become the supreme ruler of the world.

In the Book of Daniel Chapter 11, this King of the North, this evil man, is a type of the Antichrist!

*Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

As true Christians, we have very little doubt that the Antichrist will stick his evil head out in public soon, even though there are many Antichrist in the world today.

He is the little god of this world and he has only one purpose.

2Co 4:4 In whom “the god of this world” hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Now this does not mean he is sometime sort of god. He is just treated and worshiped like he is some sort of god when he is just a rebellious creation of Jehovah the true God, who Jehovah uses in the act of temptation!

When the Church is taken out of this world, he will get a brief opportunity to rule his supporters and all the world will see his evilness, his wickedness, and his deceitfulness, until, by the end of seven years, Jehovah will destroy all traces of those who give themselves to him and it will not be by water as in the days of Noah, but it will be by fire as in fire and brimstone similar to that which destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

He is so deceitful he will rise to power as the person who will bring peace to this world rather than destruction.

After given power by foolish people, he will then do as he pleases! He will be focused on his own ambitions! He will fulfill his own desires! He will be totally focused on his own works as all these things will finally go to his head!

He will be the last evil ruler to ever have been elected by the people of this earth!

The people will be convinced that this man has the answers to every problem upon this earth!

They believe he will have the answers to climate change.
They believe he will have the answers to lasting peace.
They believe he will have the answers to money problems.
They believe he will have the answers to religion.
They believe he is an intellectual genius.

2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

They will believe that he can explain why the Church is no longer upon this earth and all false, manmade religion will also endorse him.

The truth is, he is the man of sin!

Remember he is also a sign to the Church that the Lord is about to return to claim His creation.

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2Th 2:3 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;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember the Church has been removed and have met Jesus Christ in the clouds!

1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

This evil man will show himself to be atheist, but he will exalt himself above all gods, even Jehovah, making himself out to be god himself!

He will curse God the Father.
He will curse and reject the Holy Spirit.
He will curse the Lord Jesus Christ.

This evil, wicked, deceitful man, who is only Satan in the flesh, will be used by Jehovah to bring judgment upon all those who have rebelled against the Lord Jesus Christ.

You see this wicked Lucifer, will be very successful, until the world sees the wrath of God upon all this wickedness!

This tyrant nor his followers will even realize that they are being used by the Lord to cleanse this earth of wickedness!

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The man is so in love with himself, that he hates everyone else!

*Dan 11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

Because this is Satan in the flesh, the anti-god, he does not regard any god!

The word “regard” means to esteem, to hold in respect and affection.

Satan is so swelled up about himself, he has no regard for any human being, nor any of God’s creation!

He has no desire for women and certainly not a female co-ruler!

Does this mean he is a homosexual? It could, but in reality, he has no desire to please anyone but himself!

He magnifies himself above all.

He has only one desire and that is the desire for power over all human beings and all things in Heaven.

He has no soul, so he has no regard for the things of God.

He totally rejects the things of God! What do the Scriptures say about this?

Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

He rejects that he is an instrument of Jehovah God, he is so full of delusion.

*Dan 11:38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

In his estate means, this evil man will only give his allegiance to his own government and his own financial platform. He trusts in no one but himself and money and the power he thinks he has over the world!

He worships the state that he has created by force and deceitfulness.

Remember those who do not follow him, during those 7 years, will be murdered.

Rev 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

He will rob and plunder all nations, to purchase more military and police power. Those will give their allegiance to him!

This will be a vast change from his first, 3 1/2 years, when he gave the appearance of being the Messiah.

Trying to do good, eats at him like a deadly cancer, he hates it so much. We see this in his followers today!

Everything this man does is full of deceit! He will use every method available in that evil world to gain more power.

*Dan 11:39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

What is the truth? Every place of worship where the Saints have gone home to be with the Lord, many of those same places will still be having worship services.

By deceit this Antichrist will cause worship to continue. In other words the Luciferian congregations will grow at a rapid pace and this Antichrist will cause worship to Satan.

There will be the great false church where worship will continue and the Saints that are gone will be quickly forgotten with the help of some lie.
There will be the great worldly system in place for all others and the land divided according to the power given toward the rule of the Antichrist.

Rev 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

And all these things will fall according to the wrath of God!

Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

There will be great battles fought before the Kingdom of Christ Jesus becomes a reality!

What did Jesus say?

Mat 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Mar 13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.

Luk 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

*Dan 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

These are some things that will take place just before the return of Jesus Christ (at the time of the end). We know it is Jehovah God who appoints all time to fulfill His own plan.

The Antichrist will declare himself to be the supreme ruler of all the world but even many who are also wicked will take sides against him. Near the end, evil will turn on itself.

Rev 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
Rev 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
Rev 9:17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
Rev 9:18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

Upon victory the Antichrist, he will enter into the promised land and it may be at this time he will rebuild the Temple on the temple mount that exist today, not the Temple as described by Ezekiel during the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah.

*Dan 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
Dan 11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

This maybe the time that all the disputes of territory of the Middle East are solved and the Antichrist will give Israel all lands in question today and at the same time make peace with the Muslim world allowing the third Temple to be built, possibly alongside the Mosques that are already there.

Many things are written about Antiochus being this king of the North. What we realize is that Satan has had his Beast, His Antichrist in place in every generation.

He does not know when the Lord will fulfill the Words, He has given to us by His prophets.

Many thought he was Antiochus during his day. Some have said it was some of the Caesars, we know that Hitler also fit the profile of the Antichrist, so we can take these historical things with a grain of salt, and just pay attention to what “Thus sayeth the Lord”.

1Jn 2:18 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.

All these things will take place during the 7 year Tribulation Period and King Jesus will put a stop to these things at the end of those seven years.

What do we know for certain?

2Th 2:3 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;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

When the third Temple is built and the Antichrist enters that temple to sit on the throne of David claiming to be God, those will be some of his last words or maybe even his last words.

He may have control of all the money in this entire world. He will have to murder many a fool who have been trying to get control of all the money before him.

All this money will not be able to save him.

He cannot by enough power to overcome the power of King Jesus.

What did Jesus say?

Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

If King Jesus has all the power of the earth and of Heaven, then the Antichrist will certainly not have enough power to defeat King Jesus and His Saints and all the Angelic Hosts of Heaven.

Satan has already offered Jesus that puny power he may have, because in reality the thing he wants the most is for Jesus to fall down upon his face and worship him and this will never happen.

Mat 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
Mat 4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
Mat 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Just when the Antichrist has reached his peak in power and control, he will be swayed by rumors just like every other foolish man who has tried to rule the world.

This will be the beginning of his ending!

*Dan 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
Dan 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

With all the places in the world he could try to rule this world, why in the world would he choose Jerusalem, other than his hatred for the things of Jehovah mentioned in the Scriptures?

We know Satan reads the Bible and he may know more than the greatest Bible Scholars but he cannot be filled with the Holy Spirit so he cannot understand the Spiritual things of the Bible, but he can certainly read the historical parts of the Scriptures.

We know from our lessons that this is the same place that King Jesus will rule this world!

Zec 14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
Zec 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

Maybe he read the Book of Psalms.

Psa 48:1 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
Psa 48:2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
Psa 48:3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.

We know that this is the reason!

Satan can no longer go into Heaven, but we know he has set his sights on Jerusalem.

Isa 14:13 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:
Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Satan(dragon), the Antichrist (beast) and the (false prophet) will all come to an end when King Jesus shows up with His Saints!

Rev 19:11 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.
Rev 19:12 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.
Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
Rev 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Rev 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Daniel told King Nebuchadnezzar that all these things would come to be the truth.

John the Apostle saw all these things come an end just has Heaven revealed them to him.

We can rest assured that all those who have place their faith in the truth of Jesus Christ, will be on the winning side!

Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Amen

The Coming Time of Trouble

Book of Daniel Chapters 11-12

As we continue in these lessons in the Book of Daniel, we have seen that the Holy Spirit gave Daniel a realistic view of world history, before it was history.

Next, let me say up front, I am not qualified to go this deep into prophesy so we will go as far as we can.

We have seen since the time of Nebuchadnezzar the accuracy of these Scriptures.

In these two Chapters in the Book of Daniel we will meet the Antichrist.

The term Antichrist is used in two ways in the Scriptures.

1) An antichrist is anyone is anyone who denies that Jesus has come in in the form of a human. In fact 100% human and 100% Jehovah God!

1Jn 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is Antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
1Jn 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
1Jn 2:24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

2) Then we have the antichrist, the man of Sin.

2Th 2:3 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;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

The Beast of the Book of Revelation:

Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

Satan, who is the true Antichrist, will arise in the end times of our history and seek to become the supreme ruler of the world.

In the Book of Daniel Chapter 13, this King of the North, this evil man, is a type of the Antichrist!

*Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

As true Christians, we have very little doubt that the Antichrist will stick his evil head out in public soon, even though there are many Antichrist in the world today.

He is the little god of this world and he has only one purpose.

2Co 4:4 In whom “the god of this world” hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Now this does not mean he is sometime sort of god. He is just treated and worshiped like he is some sort of god when he is just a rebellious creation of Jehovah the true God, who Jehovah uses in the act of temptation!

When the Church is taken out of this world, he will get a brief opportunity to rule his supporters and all the world will see his evilness, his wickedness, and his deceitfulness, until, by the end of seven years, Jehovah will destroy all traces of those who give themselves to him and it will not be by water as in the days of Noah, but it will be by fire as in fire and brimstone similar to that which destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

He is so deceitful he will rise to power as the person who will bring peace to this world rather than destruction.

After given power by foolish people, he will then do as he pleases! He will be focused on his own ambitions! He will fulfill his own desires! He will be totally focused on his own works as all these things will finally go to his head!

He will be the last evil ruler to ever have been elected by the people of this earth!

The people will be convinced that this man has the answers to every problem upon this earth!

They believe he will have the answers to climate change.
They believe he will have the answers to lasting peace.
They believe he will have the answers to money problems.
They believe he will have the answers to religion.
They believe he is an intellectual genius.

2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

They will believe that he can explain why the Church is no longer upon this earth and all false, manmade religion will also endorse him.

The truth is, he is the man of sin!

Remember he is also a sign to the Church that the Lord is about to return to claim His creation.

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2Th 2:3 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;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember the Church has been removed and have met Jesus Christ in the clouds!

1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

This evil man will show himself to be atheist, but he will exalt himself above all gods, even Jehovah, making himself out to be god himself!

He will curse God the Father.
He will curse and reject the Holy Spirit.
He will curse the Lord Jesus Christ.

This evil, wicked, deceitful man, who is only Satan in the flesh, will be used by Jehovah to bring judgment upon all those who have rebelled against the Lord Jesus Christ.

You see this wicked Lucifer, will be very successful, until the world sees the wrath of God upon all this wickedness!

This tyrant nor his followers will even realize that they are being used by the Lord to cleanse this earth of wickedness!

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The man is so in love with himself, that he hates everyone else!

*Dan 11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

Because this is Satan in the flesh, the anti-god, he does not regard any god!

The word “regard” means to esteem, to hold in respect and affection.

Satan is so swelled up about himself, he has no regard for any human being, nor any of God’s creation!

He has no desire for women and certainly not a female co-ruler!

Does this mean he is a homosexual? It could, but in reality, he has no desire to please anyone but himself!

He magnifies himself above all.

He has only one desire and that is the desire for power over all human beings and all things in Heaven.

He has no soul, so he has no regard for the things of God.

He totally rejects the things of God! What do the Scriptures say about this?

Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

He rejects that he is an instrument of Jehovah God, he is so full of delusion.

*Dan 11:38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

In his estate means, this evil man will only give his allegiance to his own government and his own financial platform. He trusts in no one but himself and money and the power he thinks he has over the world!

He worships the state that he has created by force and deceitfulness.

Remember those who do not follow him, during those 7 years, will be murdered.

Rev 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

He will rob and plunder all nations, to purchase more military and police power. Those will give their allegiance to him!

This will be a vast change from his first, 3 1/2 years, when he gave the appearance of being the Messiah.

Trying to do good, eats at him like a deadly cancer, he hates it so much. We see this in his followers today!

Everything this man does is full of deceit! He will use every method available in that evil world to gain more power.

*Dan 11:39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

What is the truth? Every place of worship where the Saints have gone home to be with the Lord, many of those same places will still be having worship services.

By deceit this Antichrist will cause worship to continue. In other words the Luciferian congregations will grow at a rapid pace and this Antichrist will cause worship to Satan.

There will be the great false church where worship will continue and the Saints that are gone will be quickly forgotten with the help of some lie.
There will be the great worldly system in place for all others and the land divided according to the power given toward the rule of the Antichrist.

Rev 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

And all these things will fall according to the wrath of God!

Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

There will be great battles fought before the Kingdom of Christ Jesus becomes a reality!

What did Jesus say?

Mat 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Mar 13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.

Luk 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

*Dan 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

These are some things that will take place just before the return of Jesus Christ (at the time of the end). We know it is Jehovah God who appoints all time to fulfill His own plan.

The Antichrist will declare himself to be the supreme ruler of all the world but even many who are also wicked will take sides against him. Near the end, evil will turn on itself.

Rev 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
Rev 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
Rev 9:17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
Rev 9:18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

Upon victory the Antichrist, he will enter into the promised land and it may be at this time he will rebuild the Temple on the temple mount that exist today, not the Temple as described by Ezekiel during the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah.

*Dan 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
Dan 11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

This maybe the time that all the disputes of territory of the Middle East are solved and the Antichrist will give Israel all lands in question today and at the same time make peace with the Muslim world allowing the third Temple to be built, possibly alongside the Mosques that are already there.

Many things are written about Antiochus being this king of the North. What we realize is that Satan has had his Beast, His Antichrist in place in every generation.

He does not know when the Lord will fulfill the Words, He has given to us by His prophets.

Many thought he was Antiochus during his day. Some have said it was some of the Caesars, we know that Hitler also fit the profile of the Antichrist, so we can take these historical things with a grain of salt, and just pay attention to what “Thus sayeth the Lord”.

1Jn 2:18 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.

All these things will take place during the 7 year Tribulation Period and King Jesus will put a stop to these things at the end of those seven years.

What do we know for certain?

2Th 2:3 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;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

When the third Temple is built and the Antichrist enters that temple to sit on the throne of David claiming to be God, those will be some of his last words or maybe even his last words.

Mat 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Just when the Antichrist has reached his peak in power and control, he will be swayed by rumors just like every other foolish man who has tried to rule the world.

This will be the beginning of his ending!

Satan(dragon), the Antichrist (beast) and the (false prophet) will all come to an end when King Jesus shows up with His Saints!

Rev 19:11 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.
Rev 19:12 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.
Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
Rev 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Rev 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Daniel told King Nebuchadnezzar that all these things would come to be the truth.

John the Apostle saw all these things come an end just has Heaven revealed them to him.

We can rest assured that all those who have place their faith in the truth of Jesus Christ, will be on the winning side!

Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Amen

Let’s Pray!

A Faithful Walk With The Lord

Following Faithfully

2 Thessalonians 3:1-18

We have reached the end of our study of the two books to the Thessalonians. These letters were written to the Church at Thessalonica but the Apostle Paul insisted that they be circulated throughout to every church as they are today.

God has now given us the complete canon of the Bible.

There are 39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament that are considered to be the Inspired Word of God.

In 303 AD the Emperor Diocletian demanded that all sacred books to be burned. It was at this time that the books that were considered the Inspired Word of God, including the New Testament, some called the Apostles Doctrine, were collected into what we now call the Bible and are the preserved Word of God.

What did God say?

Isa 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: “but the word of our God shall stand for ever”.

What did Jesus say?

Luk 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: “but my words shall not pass away”.

What did Peter say to the Church?

1Pe 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And “this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you”.

We have God’s complete Word to us and this not a book of suggestions, This Is A Book Of Commandments!

Let’s begin:

*****2Th 3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:

Finally after everything we learned in 1 Thessalonians and everything we have learned so far in 2 Thessalonians, Paul said to use our greatest weapon and that is prayer.

I hope that everyone realizes the importance of prayer.

Heb 7:24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
Heb 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost “that come unto God by him”, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

We would lose our salvation without Christ Jesus interceding between us and a Holy God!

Luk 22:32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

We would have no payment for our sin and therefore no Advocate in Heaven without Christ Jesus interceding for us and in our behalf!

1Jn 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, “we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous”.

We could have no contact with our Father in Heaven without Christ Jesus!

Joh 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: “that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you”.

And we are all one “Body Of Christ”.

1Co 12:20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
1Co 12:21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

We must pray for each other and especially for those, like our own Pastor!

But, we see that Paul did not say to pray for his personal needs.

Paul asked for prayer that the Word of God have “free course”.

We should pray this same prayer every day!

Paul desired that his preaching be accepted and applied to all those that heard God’s Word wherever God sent him.

In last weeks lesson we learned that it the Holy Ghost filled Church that does not allow the “Man of Sin” to show himself in the Church Age.

The most important weapon we have are our prayers!

Paul asked for prayer that the Word of God be glorified where he preached the “Gospel”.

Paul sought nothing for himself and no glory for himself for his work for the Lord.

2Co 12:6 For though I would desire to glory, “I shall not be a fool”; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me.

In everything we do we need to give God the glory!

Paul also knew that wherever he preached the “Gospel” he would meet with resistance.

The “gospel” still meets resistance everywhere it is preached and believed.

When the entire truth of God is preached and taught, there will be opposition from the religious, and even from many that call themselves Christians.

People do not want to hear the truth because the truth points out sin that should cause a change.

Most people love their sin to much to change and this is even more evident in the days we live right now!

Those that hate Jesus, those that do not care to hear the truth, and the carnal hearts of evil people all try to hinder the work of the “Gospel”.

Paul also requested for deliverance from such people.

*****2Th 3:2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.

These unreasonable men would be those who opposed the truth and had absurd principles.

These are those who are opposed to truth even when common sense, and sound judgment dictates the reality of that truth.

Today these are those who absolutely reject creation and honor evolution though there is absolutely no proof of evolution.

At least God describes His Own Creation through means that cannot be denied by true science.

These are those who reject the common sense of God’s Word.

These are those who strive to have their own way, regardless of the truth and regardless of the consequences.

These are those that practice evil and evil principles which is everything contrary to the moral law of the Bible.

These are usually those that are dissatisfied with there own miserable lives and want everyone else to be miserable just like they are, such as Stephen Hawking!

Those that say they have faith in only themselves are liars because “true faith” is a gift that can only come from God!

Any faith they claim is only temporary and changes with the circumstances in their lives.

But not that of the Lord!

*****2Th 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

Faith on the part of man answers to the faithfulness of God!

For this reason the Word of God will never change!

Those that try to change and modernize the Word of God show their lack of faith!

When we walk by faith and not by sight, God will help us through all the events in our life because God is faithful!

When we fail Him, God will forgive us immediately when we repent because God is faithful.

When temptations overwhelm us, God will provide a way out because God is faithful.

When we are discouraged, God will comfort and encourage us because God is faithful.

Since God is faithful then the Word of God shows His faithfulness to us.

Num 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

This is why we can be so confident in the Inspired Word of God.

*****2Th 3:4 And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.

Where is our confidence?

If we have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ we will be saved!

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

It is a fact of the Gospel, when we place our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ we will be saved!

The fact that the Holy Spirit of God comes to dwell in each believer is good reason for our confidence.

What commandments was Paul referring to?

1Th 4:1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.

Our walk with God “after salvation” is our most important witnessing tool!

And this walk can only begin with our “faith”!

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

And with that faith we will be looking for that “Blessed Hope”, the return of Christ Jesus to take us home.

*****2Th 3:5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

Paul has given us the 5 things that we need in our walk with God.

1) Prayerfulness. Our greatest weapon.
2) Preservation. Deliverance from sin.
3) Protection. God is faithful to His promises.
4) Perseverance. If we trust the Lord, He will save us.
5) Patience.

Heb 10:36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
Heb 10:37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

In order to have patience we must “be set” in our hope of a better future.

This takes confidence, hope, and belief in our still future but perfect redemption!

But we must also be obedient to the Word of God and be humble in the things of God.

It is a privilege to be given such an opportunity to serve God!

Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

And notice that we are to be waiting on the appearance of Jesus Christ and not be waiting to see when the Antichrist will show his ugly face!

Since we know all these things we must protect our ability to witness to the world and be examples of Christ Jesus to others.

*****2Th 3:6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
2Th 3:7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
2Th 3:8 Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:

What are the two greatest threats to the Church in our age? The same as it was in the days of Paul.

A disorderly walk with God and idleness!

Disorderly means confused. We cannot allow false teaching in the House of God because it will only bring confusion.

We must avoid those that cause confusion!

Disorderly means lawless. We must obey the Word of God. We must take God’s Word literal. God does not offer suggestions, God gives commandments.

We must avoid those that do not walk the walk of Jesus Christ!

Disorderly means unruly. We are sheep who know the true Shepherd, not a bunch of cattle on a cattle drive.

We must avoid those that are unruly!

There must be discipline in the House of God!

Notice this is also a command and not a suggestion.

Paul, Silas, and Timothy had presented themselves as examples of how to walk the Christian walk.

Were they perfect? No.

But they did not preach confusion, they taught the entire Word of God.
They preached the “Gospel of Jesus Christ” and not some other gospel.
They live holily.
They lived justly.
They lived unblamably.
They behaved themselves and they were never disorderly among those of the Church.
And they did not live an idle and inactive life among them!

They were always busy about the things God gave them to do!

These things were very important to the Apostle Paul and these things should be just as important to each believer.

1Th 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

Paul even gave up his right to expect financial help from this young Church so that he could be an example to these young believers.

In the synagogues of the Jews, the people were expected to support the preacher but these new Gentile Churches knew nothing of these things and they were very poor to begin with.

A truly dedicated leader will use his rights to build up the people and not try to build up himself!

The greatest influence we can offer is that personal sacrifice to the Lord.

Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

*****2Th 3:9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
2Th 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

From the beginning, God has ordained that men should work for their own food.

Gen 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Gen 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

This became even more necessary when sin entered this picture.

Gen 3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
Gen 3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
Gen 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

We will even continue to work serving the Lord after we move into our mansion in Heaven.

Rev 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and “his servants shall serve him”:

It is inexcusable for Christians, when they are no longer children, to expect others to provide the things that sustain physical life, while they stand idle and have the ability to provide for themselves.

In fact it is inexcusable for anyone not to try to provide for their own selves in a legal and moral manner.

There is no spiritual excuse for this type of thinking.

But our government’s policies influences this type of behavior.

All of us may need some help sometimes, I can attest to that myself.

But God says those that refuse to work, when they able, then neither should they eat.

Again liberals refuse this Word of God!

Why? Idleness causes problems in society but especially in the Church.

Why are there so many protesters when something happens?

Most of those people do not have a job to go to.

They are idle and refuse to work!

*****2Th 3:11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

What is a busybody? This is someone who does not look to their own business but they are overdoing in the business of others.

They are real busy about everyone’s business but their own!

The word disorderly is used 4 times in the letters to these Thessalonians.

The disorderly are those who refuse to obey civil laws and in this case also the laws of God!

In America today, we see a government that will not obey it’s own laws. This shows up in it’s people!

More than one fourth of people who call themselves Americans are perfectly willing to live off the backs of the taxpayer, those willing to work!

These same busybodies are those that refuse the truth of the Word of God.

Not only this, but they refused to work but they were perfectly willing to eat at the hands of the Church.

In verse 6 the Church, each believer, is commanded to withdraw from all such people.

We as the Church are not to entertain such people!

We of the Church should not get discouraged by the conduct of those that do not obey the Word of God!

Sin in the life of any believer will always affect the work of the Church!

These are some that are a plague to the Church and also to their own nation.

1Ti 5:13 And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.

*****2Th 3:12 Now “them” that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

These busybodies were now the “Them” of the Church.

Every Church has a “them”.

Every nation has a “them” and a “they”!

As always, these people know who they are and what they are doing!

Remember they have rejected the truth and have made up in their own mind what the Word of God says.

God’s Word is settled whether It is believed or not!

What does God say?

2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

When God inspired the writers of the Bible, He did not expect them to completely understand what they were writing.

So even when we do not completely understand the reason for God’s commands, we are still to obey God’s commands!

It was “those” who did obey by faith the Word of God that were to give “them” who did not obey the Word of God, this message and to all busybodies.

In other words, “here is God’s command to you (the them) and we will not have any part with you until you repent”.

1Th 4:11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

It “is not” our job to feed those that refuse to work and are able!

I saw a picture of a shoe store in Ferguson, Missouri that had been looted and not one pair of work shoes had been stolen but most all other shoes were completely missing.

It “is” our job to help those that have a real need!

Eph 4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

We just cannot allow these things to wear us down in our labor for the work of the Lord.

*****2Th 3:13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

Not to the “them” but to the rest of “those that gather”, not forsaking the assembling for the Lord, we need to be busy about the work of God.

In contrast to those “disorderly busybodies” who only God can fix, we are to give “our” very best to God.

Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Gal 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Gal 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

When we are able to help others, the first priority is to be given to those that are poor within the Church and then those in the world, as we are able.

But suppose these busybodies still reject the Word of God after they have received the warning from God’s people, what then?

*****2Th 3:14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.

These are those who have rejected the preaching of the “Gospel”.

They have been observed in their wrong doing and have been warned by the Church.

They have even rejected that warning and also rejecting the written Word of God, which is full of God’s truth.

Now the entire Church is to have no part with that person!

Each individual child of God will have to decide if they will obey the Word of God or remain in the company of this disorderly walking busybody!

We are to mark him in our mind as one to be avoided!

We are not to be busybodies ourselves!

Why?

That he may be ashamed. Sometimes when these people are shunned by godly brethren, they will come to their senses.

This person may have already been talked to by the Pastor or the Church Elders but the body of Christ must also be obedient to the Word of God and this verse exists just as all those that teach us about salvation.

But thank goodness we have a God of the second chance!

*****2Th 3:15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

We must still go to this person and explain why we can have no part with him or her!

Church discipline to the church member must be administered as a family would discipline a child!

Church discipline is not the pastor and some official board acting like God’s policemen to trap a sinning saint of God and kicking him out of the Church.

When the Church disciplines a “Born Again” child of God who has made a serious mistake and living in sin, “we are not to be like a judge punishing a criminal” but only as a father may punish his own children.

Mat 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

Only if that person refuses to settle the matter should any other saint of God be involved.

Php 4:3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.

When we can help each other, especially in these latter days, the Church can remain strong until the Lord returns.

Only God knows whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life!

And only the Lord is the “Lord of Peace” within the Church.

*****2Th 3:16 Now the “Lord of peace” himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.

This is the only place in the New Testament that Jesus is called the “Lord of peace”.

He is called the “God of peace” in 5 other places, this next verse being just one of them.

Php 4:9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

It is the Lord Jesus who “creates” peace.

It is the Lord Jesus who “sustains” peace in each believer.

How?

He is not just the “Lord of Peace” and the God of Peace but He is also the “Prince of Peace”!

Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

He is also the Author of Peace.

1Co 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

He is also the King of Peace.

Heb 7:2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

Jesus Christ is our only means of true peace!

Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

And one day in the not so distant future after the Rapture of the Church, Jesus will “speak peace” to all the heathen.

Zec 9:10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.

And in the very end of time, as we know it, and our own new beginning, there will be complete peace!

Isa 9:7 “Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end”, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

True peace can only come through God, the Lord Jesus Christ!

*****2Th 3:17 The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.
2Th 3:18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Possibly because of bad eyesight, Paul normally would dictate his letters to be written by those that traveled with him such as Luke but also others and maybe Silas or Timothy in this case.

Many times Paul was behind bars and had to dictate his letters.

Paul would place his personal signature on these documents but he may not have always mentioned this.

To these Thessalonians, Paul wanted them to be sure to know that this letter was from him and they were to always look for his personal signature.

They had already been deceived by someone writing to them, claiming to be Paul.

And Paul always reminded the Church that if not for God’s “Grace” there could be no Church!

Grace comes by the Lord Jesus Christ!

This will end our brief study of the Letters to the Thessalonians and next week we will begin in the Book of Psalms.
