The Kingdom (18 April 2014)
Of course we know that there are thousand great years between our return from heaven with Christ and the throne of judgment for the unbelievers. And this Kingdom Age, this great millennium is the true reward of the church. We should go back and examine it. The Kingdom will be quite a different age than we have now. Things will be socially "upside down. It will be sophisticated to be a Christian then, and downright foolish to not to be. The King Himself shall reign in Jerusalem with his Queen. WE must go back to the Old Testament for knowledge of the kingdom, since that's where Jesus got His teachings. There was no New Testament, of course at the time the Lord taught the disciples " the things pertaining to the kingdom", but the passages of Isaiah and the other prophets make clear this age of God's triumph. The New Testament assumed that everyone understood the kingdom, since it had already been explained int eh Old, and it virtually began with the Sermon on the Mount-the explanation of how one gets into the kingdom and how the law of the kingdom will be. The Beatitude (Matt. 5, etc) continue to inspire us as to that idyllic age of God's total sovereignty over the earth. "Butt with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and He shall smite he earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and faithfulness the girdle of His reins. 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. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. (Isa. 11:4-9) No where in the Bible is the kingdom ore concisely and more beautifully described than in Isaiah;s very brief chapter 12. "And in that day thous shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though that wast angry with me, thins anger is turned away; and thous comfortedst me, Behold, God is my salvation: I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song: He also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon His name, declare His doings among the people, make mention that His name is exalted. Sing unto the Lord: for He hath done excellent things; this is known in all the earth>Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee." Isaiah 9:6-7 will fully be realized ("Unto us a child is born..."). I could go on and on in the other prophets with the wonderful descriptions of life on earth in the presence of the King. The theme of it will be the constant company of Jesus, the total triumph of the saints, and absolute justice and mercy throughout the earth. This again, is the reward of the true Church.

The Return (April 2nd 2014)
The Return Part 11 (7 April 2014)
The Old Testament saints will be regathered as well as the beginning of the kingdom age, and so the kingdom will get under way with mixed crowd all having in common a sincere belief in the Messiah and King.. There will be the faithful of the Old Testament, who waited so long for this grand age, the believers of the Church Age and finally the believers of the Tribulation Period, (Jews) which will enter the kingdom in their natural bodies. Since they were sealed during the Tribulation Period. Unlike the Saints that was rapture they were not changed and they remain as they are, will be marrying and giving in marriage, unlike the believers of the Church Age. These people will be giving birth during the 1000 year period. It is these few on earth, who will disobey God commands and make it necessary for him to set penalties for failures of worship or sanctity (Zech. 14:16-19) They have multiplied and will rally with Stan who was release after the thousand year period for the last battle as the end of the 1000 years. (Read ( Rev 20:7-9) This last rebellion of Satan is unsuccessful and the Great White Throne of Judge is set up for all those who were confined with him, and the unbelievers of all ages. (Rev 20:11-15). This is the second death the, is that which avoided by the believers in Christ. Next Writing (The Kingdom)
The return of Christ to the earth is given in glorious terms in the Bible. John's details becomes breathtaking: "And I saw heaven open and behold a white horse; and He that stat upon hiw was called Faithful and True, and in righteeousness He doth Judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns: and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself. And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, cloth in fine linen, white and clean. And out of His mohth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He 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. And He hath on His vesture and His thigh a name written, King of kings and Lord of Lords.' (Rev 19:11-16). It is the church that is viewed in verse 14. We temporarily come as an army in order to put a stop to the battle of Armageddon, which will be in progress on the earth when Christ and the Church returns. Once Armageddon is taken care of, we shall see the judgement of those who lived during the tribulation period, and the rewarding of those (Jews) who refused the Mark of the Beast, but instead martyred for the faith in Christ. Read Rev 20: 4-6. More details were given by Jesus during His earthly ministry about this judgement, which serves as an immigration office into the kingdom. He means to take care of every single soul who existed during the seven years on earth, when the Tribulation Period was going on. Jesus is so perfectly far. All of the nations will gathered before Him, and He will separate the believers from the unbelievers "as a shepherd divideth his sheep from goats." Read Matt 25:31-34. I relpy, the beliers will express surprise that they had so honored Jesus during the Tribulation period, but He will make matters very clear to them: Matt 25:40) If the people of the nations of the rold, even during the Tribulation Period, demonstrate faith in Christ by caring for brethren (the 144,000) of Israel who witness during the hard time, they will be savee. But the judgementt is equal and devasting upon those who failed to honor Jesus during the reign of the Antichrist: The shall He answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to Me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment; but the righteous into life eternal (Matt 25:45-46 (Part two will benext writing)
The Marriage (Mar 27 2014)
Now we are ready for the marriage to Christ It is fascinating to compare the vents in heaven with the tradition of Israel in the time of Christ. There was a seven day "honeymoon" in the bridal chamber for the bride and groom, preceding the reception or marriage supper. This pertains exactly to the seven years in heaven and the judgement seat of Christ, leading up to the marriage with Him. John covers the marriage for us in two glorious verses. "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to here was granted that she be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints." Rev. 19:7-8 The white linen bridal gown, that the bride will wear when she marries the Lamb fulfill a fascinating Bible type that reaches back to the Tabernacle of ancient Israel (Exodus 25-30). In the Tabernacle, plain white linen was associated with pure righteousness. The linen curtains around the entire Tabernacle, the tent, as it were, were pure white. No one could enter through the sides of the rear, they would have to have been perfectly righteous to pass through the white linen. The door of the Tabernacle, however was sewn with the colors of Christ, scarlet, purple and blue threads, indicating sacrifice, royalty and heaven. All the Israelites had to enter by the door, of course the implication was that they were entering by means of the Messiah. Jesus said. "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pastures (John 10:9). The Priests of the Tabernacle were obliged to wear the messianic colors in their dress, and the colors also appeared in the hangings of the various courts and on the coverings that made up the roof. But now, the Bride (church) shall wear white! Fine linen, clean and white, for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints? " The very fact that we can now appearing white-glowing, as it were, as did Christ after His resurrection-testifies to our final perfection. Paul compared earthly marriage to this great marriage of Christ and the Church (Eph. 5:2133). In heaven , we will see the final fulfillment of the apostles' patient exhortation of the infant church. When our marriage to Christ is accomplished in heaven, we will be ready to immediately return to earth with Him to occupy His kingdom. This is exactly the manner in which, int he Israeli wedding, the bride returned with the bridegroom after the marriage to housing he had arranged for them. They did not remain in his father's house, but instead departed for their own abode." (Next writing (The Return)
Heaven Part # 2 (Mar 18 2014)
Once the Bride (Church) arrives in heaven with Christ, we have important matters to transact. We are not issued wings and harps, but instead we have a serious conference with Jesus, aimed at preparing us for our wedding. We are, at this time, The Bride Of Christ; In heaven we will become the Bride of Christ. The first event is a kind of review of our life of service for the Lord while on earth: For we all must appear before the judgement seat of Christ: that everyone may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad," (ll Cor. 5:10). It would appear that each of ud meets individually and privately with Jesus at this "judgement seat" in order to evaluate with Him our lives on earth. The emphasis is not on our sins, of course, which were forgiven a long time ago at the Cros, but own our works. We are saved "unto good works" and had a responsibility asa disciple of Christ. It it were not that we were appointed to certain tasks on earth-as workers in a field, soldiers in the spiritual battle, and so on=we could all have gone to heaven the moment we were saved. As it is, we have accomplished, or failed to accomplished, certain assignments given us according to our gifts. Paul expounds quite specifically on the standards in the judgement seat of Christ and how our works are to be reckoned: For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stone, wood hay, stubble; Every ma's work shall be made manisfets; for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fir; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is ( l Cor 3:11-13). Here Paul has established that no foundation for this life can be laid outside of that of Jesus Christ. Good works doen outside of Christ-those done by unbelievers-do not come into this scripture, because, the unbeliever will not be going to heaven. What good works, and sins, the unbelievers gathers in this life will be presented at the Great White Throne of Judgement after the kingdom. After Paul established that the believer has laid his foundation in Christ, he now divides the work into two categories, calling them gold, silver, and precious stones", on one hand, and wood, hay, stubble.." Obviously, those two very different rankings of quality. The Lord will try all our works in fire. The image is very clear, since fire will certainly show the difference between the gold, silver, and precious stone works and those of wood, hay and stubble. The precious metal and stones would not be harmed by the fire, but the wood, hay and stubble will be burned away, and that is the purpose of the judgement seat. Obviously, each Saint hasa life of great variety to present to Jesus, and we cannot be sure just which works of ours are considered of high value in heaven, and which are worth more that those flammable materials. Remember in the Gospel the story of the man who prayed and fasted so much and thanked God that he was not of the class of the poor beggar who lay on his face at the back of the synagogue.The beggar at the same time, was only pleading, ":Have mercy on me, a sinner". As Jesus explained the story. It was found the the beggar's humility and pleas for mercy were the real gold, silver, and precious stones, and all the holy protest of the supposedly righteous one in the front were the worthless hypocrisy of wood, hay and stubble. Paul now specifies that we shall be rewarded for the works that survive the fire: "If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. (l Cor. 3:140 We shall receive jewels for our crowns for the good works we have done in this life. It is well to remember that the rewards of the christian come at the edn of this life in heaven and bot on earth.. Paul also specifies that we shall suffer loss for the works that do not qualify-the wood, hay and stubble: "If any man;s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved: yet so as by fire (1 Cor. 3:15). We must notice in the passage above."but he himself shall be saved." God is very clear on the point that salvation is a free gift, not an earned prize. We cannot lose our salvation by bad works, and certainly not by sins, which were forgiven the moment we accepted Christ as our Saviour. we shall suffer loss of our rewards, in effect, for our bad works, but we shall not fall back out of heaven. Peter though the heavy net of fish which he "caught up" might break, and some fish might fall back into the water (John 21:11) However Jesus had selected the fish on this occasion, and none were lost once they were caught up.. The fire of course, is not meant to consume the Saints. God has fire that does not burn, such as the burning bush and the lake of fire. The fire is only for purify away the bad works, as fire sterilizes away bacteria from foods. The sense of the judgment seat of Christ is to prepare us as a spotless bride for Jesus (ll Cor. 11:2) If wew ere to go to our wedding with jesus with the consciousness that our sins are forgiven, but with the memory of many bad works we did in our lifetime, then we would not be the pure virgin the Lord wants for His Bride. Thus the judgement seat of Christ is the final preparation for the marriage supper of the Lamb, Just as any earthly bride adorns herslef in the finest garments, so we will go before Jesus cleansed of all bad works, forgive of all sins, and now as perfect as Christ Himself. Is n't it wonderful to know that we will be the equal of Christ in purity, in the future. But this is our destiny: the scripture is very clear, Christ could not marry less a bride than He Himself is and of course, we shall reign with Him in the kingdom as the Queen on Earth. This, then is a true Christianity, a transcendence of this worldly mind and this entire worldly labor-we trade it all for a state of eternal bliss in the presence of God Himself in Jesus Christ. Next writing will be the Marriage
The Rapture Part 1
The questions that came about the Church are (1) What is it? and (2) When is it?
As to the question one , of course, the Rapture of the Church describes the moment when the Lord will come and take His bride the Church with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. This the great promise of Christianity and the great difference between Biblical faith and the worldly religions. Buddha will not be making another appearance and Mohammed will not return for his followers. The various cults that come and go for a season, sometimes only as long as their original founder exists on the earth. But the followers (The Bride) of Christ can arrest assured of a great deliverance to come, a true deliverance of the Chosen People (The church) to the promise land. It is so sad that many Christians Churches who have and will not disclosed the doctrine of the Rapture of the Rapture to its members. The liberal churches who have put away the original King James Bible and have added man verses and have thus lost the prime promise of Jesus Christ, and live in a pathetic "Christian Ethic"- a meaningless and powerless copy of what they think the life in Christ might be..The Believers who understand the Rapture and await the coming of the Bridegroom, on the other hand, live a steady hope and a powerful faith based on the reality of a new kingdom in an ongoing eternal life. The word Rapture is borrowed from the Latin Vulgate Bible, and appears in the English Bible as "caught up", in 1 Thess 4:17. The final three verses 1 Thess contain the prime promise of the return of Christ for his church. "For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 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. "Wherefore comfort one another with these words, (1 Thess 4:16-18) Verse 18 above is not quoted as much as the other, but it certainly should be. What is more comforting than to think that we will go beyond this life and then "ever be with the Lord"? Jesus first indicated that he would be departing from the Church and then returning again on His final Passover night. In the nerve racking scene in the upper room He gave His disciples the momentous message: "Let not your heart be troubles; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father house are many mansions: If it were not so, I would have told you so, I would have told you. I go to prepared a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you. I will come again, and receive you unto myself: that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:1-3) After his resurrection and the forty days with the disciples in which He taught them "The things pertaining to the kingdom of God" (Acts 1:3), the Lord rose to His Father, and the promise of his return was repeated. "And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld. he was taken up; and the clouds received him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold two men stood by in white apparel Which also said, Ye men of Galilee why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have see him go into heaven. (Acts 1:9-11). It is interesting that Jesus, having forty days left with he Church, thought to teach them not so much how to behave but the things of the kingdom to come. His final message was about the kingdom and about witnessing to all men. His final words on earth were; "But ye shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 1:8) The two men in white apparel were angels of course, who had come to reassure the disciples that in just manner they had seen Jesus go up-that is upward into heaven- He would return. They would one day see Him come back from his clouds of heaven.. This time he will not return in a spiritual way or within the heart, but literally in the manner in which He left. Lets look at Paul addressing the Rapture. 1 Cor 15:22-23 "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming." Here Paul is saying that every man born of Adam, every human being, dies, but those in Christ will be resurrected. It also indicates that we have an order ("every man in his own order) This ties in with "the dead in Christ first". Jesus is called the first fruits since He is the first man permanently resurrected. First Fruits is the proper name of the third Jewish feast, Resurrection Sunday, which has become known as Easter. If we refer it to the First Fruit then we realize that there is second, a third and so on. In point of fact, we all have a number, and we will rise in that order in the Rapture of the Church. Naturally the dead in Christ will rise first since they have lower numbers. Jesus' number was one. Let us hope that when he returns the numbers will be in the millions. The most interesting facet of the Rapture of the Church, is the believer will undergo a metamorphosis: we will be changed in a way that will outfit us for eternal life. The bodies we have now will not be good for that: most of them are barely good enough for this earthly life; Behold I shew you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump' for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and the mortal must put on immorality (1 Cor 15:51-53. Death is the common fear of all people, and everyone being stand in fear of it-except a true christian. Paul when faces death; O death where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory?, The sting of death is sin- and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 15:55-57) Once the Rapture of the Church is accomplished, then we are ready for the exciting event of our seven years in heaven while the Tribulation Period takes place on the earth below.

Is The Rapture going to take place at sign of the red moon in 2014-02015 (Mar 10 2014)
Gaining in popularity today is the teaching that a series of blood-red moons in the next two years will be , the coming of Jesus for his Bride-the Church-the rapture. as a a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. Astrological charts show four lunar eclipses will occur from 2014 to 2015. Because a full lunar eclipse often makes the moon look red or orange, it is referred sometimes as a "blood moon" or "blood-red-moon" . Some teachers of prophecy say that this tetrad of blood moon will fulfill end time prophecies in Joel and Revelation. What makes this so interesting is just not the number of lunar eclipses in the next two years but the timing of both the eclipses in 2014-2015. A full lunar eclipses will happen on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles). In additional to the lunar eclipses of 2015, two eclipses will also occur. Similar lunar eclipses in back-to-back years have happened seven times since the time of Christ. These have occurred in years significance for the Jewish people, such as 1948 (When Israel was granted statehood) and 1967 (when the six-Day War was fought) Reference to a moon like blood are found twice in the Bible. Joel 2:3-31 says, "I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." In Revelation 6:12 "I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned red, and the stars in the sky fell to the earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and very mountain and island was removed from its place. Others passage refer to the moon being "darkened" (Matt 24:29, Joel 2:10) A tetrad of lunar eclipses-and the timing of these eclipses in the Jewish calendar-is fairly unusual, but not unprecedented. So the fact of these eclipses, while in no proof that Jesus will coming for the Church in 2014-or 2015. Furthermore, John;s and Joel's descriptions of the signs of the Rapture could refer to solar and lunar eclipses, butt here are other possible explanations for those phenomena, such as changes in the atmosphere (mention in Revelation 6:12) The blood-red-moon may be just a theory, but it come close to doing what the Bible say what will happen. But no one know the day or the hour of His coming except the Father. But what if these are some of his signs??
1,260 days...1,290 days (2 6 Feb)
If you've done your arithmetic found in this text, you may be wondering how the angels come up with 1,260, then 1,290 days and then 1,335 days. Again, the Word of God is always meticulously correct on and on schedule. With this mind, an announcement is made that soon the millennial Kingdom will be establish, but that a time of consecration is first necessary. In 2 Chronicles 20:2-4 where we read, "The king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month. For they could not keep at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together in Jerusalem. And the thing pleased the king and all the congregation." King Hezekiah said that there could be no passover because there was no need to consecrate the priests-something that would take thirty days.. This is a beautiful picture of why an additional thirty-days period will be necessary for God's people to prepare themselves spiritually to rule and reign with Christ for the greater event in history. So, we look at the additional number 1,290, instead of seeing discrepancy, we simply need to investigate other portions of Scripture as just did, to see the reason. But there's another 45 days period in our text. Here's why? When Christ returns. He Judges the nations and their people, and His decree, decides whether or not they're qualified to enter His glorious kingdom for a thousand years (Matt 15:31-46). This judgement undoubtedly takes an additional 45 days! Thus, we end up with a total of 75 days in addition to the 1,260 days. There is no contradiction.Here why-45 days are needed to determine who enter the millennial period and 30 days are need to train God's people for kingdom service for administering the laws of the Kingdom, as described in Matthew chapters 5-7. now as we come to the final verse of the Book of Daniel, this great man of God is in his 90's. The angel tells him "go his way till the end be; for he shall rest, and stand his lot at the ends of his days.' The angel is simply saying there will be a soon approaching moment when Daniel will die and rest for his labors. But the angel adds that a glorious day coming when Daniel and all believing Jews shall stand up and be raised from the dead to rule and reign with Christ. One group of saints( Jews) who lived through the Tribulation period, are selected in Matt 25:31-45 and enter the kingdom in their natural bodies. Then there's another group of believers who died during the Tribulation (Jews) hour and are resurrected at the approximately the same time as the Old Testament saints are raised. These resurrected Old Testament saints and Tribulation believers will dwell in the Holy City in glorified bodies and will together, rule and reign with Christ for a thousand year along with the raptured saints, who return with Christ. That's why the names of the twelve Jewish patriarchs and the twelve apostles are mentioned upon the gates and the foundations of the Holy City. They represent all resurrected believers form among the Jews and Christians (Gentiles). There will be four groups sharing the thousand year kingdom. 1. The believers (church) who were raptured and who return with Christ 7 years later in their glorified bodies (Jude 14. 2. The believers who were selected at Christ's return and are invited to enter the kingdom in their physical bodies (Matt 25:34) 3. The Old testament Jewish believers covering a period of 4,000 years who are raised from the dead at Christ's return to enter the kingdom in glorified bodies similar to the raptured of #1 (Dan 12:2). 4. The believers both Jews and Gentiles, who died for Christ and walking in the light they knew and raise at Jesus' second coming. (Rev 20:4) At this point the angel is saying to Daniel. "Hallelujah! You will be there among them! You have a hard life Daniel, and faithful to the end, and Daniel you will be rewarded greatly. I personally believe that Daniel will be one of the rulers during that 1000 year reign of Christ on earth, He certainly had the experience serving under six kings.
"The Wrap up"
If you are of one of the followers who is soon coming (Jesus), you can be assured that you will not have to suffer or endure the pain of the Greta Tribulation. Such cannot be said who turn their back on God, and who schoose to live out their lives on their agenda. Ow is the time of salvation. Jesus is coming soon. His bride -The Church will be caught to meet Him in the air-to later return with Him as He establishes millennial kingdom.There are too many signs pointing to His soon coming and the end time is upon us. Please take this message to heart. It is my prayer that you have read this and taken ot to heart and not just for a history lesson. This is to plead with you to accept the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, today while there is still time. When the plan runs its course. it will be evident be the end as we know it.As Christ said, "Till Heaven and Earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled (Matt 5:18) To which I add, Come quickly. Lord Jesus. Maranatha!
Next writing we will focus on. The Rapture and it the questions concerning it
Time, Times and a Half Time 22 Feb 2014
Again Daniel is joined by two angels who came to give him further insight into historical matters concerning the time of the end. Now Daniel want to know what is going to take place in the long run- and especially as to what happen to his people, the Jews, during the latter days before the Messiah appears.. The one angel responds by saying that time, times and a half will bring all these things to an end. The angel is referring to the terrible battle that takes place in Daniel chapter 11 when the king of the South (Egypt) ultimately invades Israel, leading an Arab federation and joined by the king of the north (Russia). The first wave of troops was discussed in chapter 11. Next, China enters in the battle with her two hundred million soldiers, accompanied by the remnants of the Russia's previously defeated army, for the second wave of the Armageddon campaign (Dan.11:44). This what Daniel received, but it was not what he wanted to hear. But what about this seemingly cryptic phrase that time, times and a half time will bring all things to an end?Remember Russia begins her move into the area in the middle of the Tribulation hour-just after the Antichrist breaks his peace treaty with Israel. Time =1 year: times= 2 year more years: and a halt time=half a year, which totals 3 1/2 years-precisely the concluding portion of the Tribulation Period. The 42 months of Revelation 13:5 are translated as 1,260 days in Revelation 11:3 and 12:6. These terrible battles will occur for 42 months, right up to the exact moment that the beast and his armies battle Jesus Christ as recorded in Rev 19:11-21). This the third and final portion of the Armageddon campaign as thoroughly explained in the previous chapter. The as Christ appears, the words of Isaiah 2:4 become reality: " He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." But is going to take the real Prince-The Lord Jesus Christ-to bring history to this final, tranquil conclusion, the one whose name is the "Prince of Peace " (Isaiah 9:6). At this time, because of the mayhem and terror that's taking place in the Holy Land, the people will flee and be scattered (Matt 24:16-21 says, "Then let them which be in Judea fell into the mountains: let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of the house: Neither let him which is in the field return to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day; For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever will be." Imagine how Daniel must have felt as he once again heard the prophecies of gloom and doom coming from the mouths of two angels who informed him that everything he had heard was for the end time. The angel said one more thing. It was about many being purified or make white, people who would have understanding and also about those who were wicked, and who, in their wickedness, would not be able to understand the things of God. 1 Cor 2:14 says the natural man, the own who is unsaved, does not understand the things of God. To such people they are foolishness. They can't understand them because they have no spiritual discernment. On the other hand-God's people-especially those who who've gone through the mill-will have divine insight into those things because they, as God's faithful servants, have experienced such trials and have been purified through these times of testing. The Apostle Paul said that tribulation works patience within us. It makes us into something. Therefore those who have been through pain and suffering- but who, in the process, have remained close to the Lord, and have read His Word, and prayer in faith, believing.
and have understood the things of God through the Holy Ghost'd enlightenment-will have all theses predictions revealed to them. But those who have hardened their hearts through wickedness will go to the tome of the end totally ignorant of and carelessly indifferent to the latter day predictions.

Not A Pretty Sight (Feb 18 2014)
We are now entering the Horrible Tribulation and now it begins to unfold.. To those who disagree with what I am about to write, I would like to say this: I am only a messenger of what is stated categorically in God's Word. These are no my thoughts, but rather the words of God taken from the Bible. So during the time of the Tribulation, great numbers of both Jews and Gentile will be killed for no taking the Mark of the Beast. (Revelation 13:15) Revelation 20:4 adds, "And I saw thrones, and they that sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them, and i saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, nether had received his mark upon their forehead, or in their hands, and they lived and reign with Christ a thousand years.": This is the resurrection for those who endured the Great Tribulation hour-those that were saved through the preaching of the 144,000 converted Jews of Revelation 7:4-6.. Because of those faithful servants, millions of Jews-invite Christ into their live. These are the ones who've come out of the Tribulation and who have washed their robes, making them white in the blood of the lamb.
In Matt 25:31-46 Christ returns to judge the nations and to begin His thousand year reign, allowing those Jews who were sealed to enter the millennium in their natural bodies. At this point Christ returns with the rapture saints (Jude 14) He returns king of kings and Lord of lords. (Rev.19:16) The armies of heaven follow Him to the descending Holy City-the new Jerusalem which hover above earthly Jerusalem-for one thousand years. This city contains twelve gates, honors the twelve Jewish patriarchs of the Old Testament by inscribing their names on the gates. How do the Jews arrive at this scenario?-The resurrection of Jewish believers in this chapter verse 2. Millions who dies during the tribulation period, of Jews-Gentiles plus the Old Testament Jews covering a period of 4,000 years , are raised to live with Christ for a thousand years (Rev 19:16: 20;4. These Old Testament Jews strongly believed in and looked forward to the Messiah's first and second coming anf founded their faith in him as the redeemer-based Isaiah 53 and psalm 22. These resurrected Jews who loved a holy life, such as Daniel, receive rewards just as the Bride (church) did at the the judgement seat of Christ (2 Cor. 5:10; Romans 14:10; 2 Tim 4:7-8; Rev 4:10-11). so whether Jew or Gentile believers there will be rewards for all the faithful. Remember saints assemble at this time for one reason only; to live and reign with Christ for a thousand years. I you do not believe that Jews and Christians rule equally in Christ's kingdom on earth. I urge to study Ephesians 2:14-22 and Rev chapter 21, the basis for the glorious promise. All-this-although not in such detail- is what Daniel is being told in his vision Read Daniel 12;4-13 . Shut the Words... Seal Up the Book" Daniel is told in no uncertain terms that his vision was not for his day- and that his revelation will not be understood only at the tome of the end. For this reason many prophecies dealing with revived Roman Empire, mention in Daniel chapter 2, in the form of the image, as well as the 4 beasts so accurately described in Daniel 7, would not be understood until the time of the end when the book would be unsealed and revealed. Historically, none of Daniel's vision made sense to Bible scholars until 1890, when Dr. Gabaelein began to teach that a revived Roman Empire would come into play during the tome of the end. So. the terminology "shut up the words until the time of the end" only became operative in and unprecedented way at the beginning of the twentieth century. This is when we began to understand clearly that a great nations would march against Israel (Ezekiel 38 and 39) and that this enemy would attack from the North. We've already seen in Daniel 11:40 how the king of the south (Egypt) and the king of the North (Russia) would unite to engage in a blitzkrieg, the likes of which the world has never seen before. No one could make much sense of Daniel's vision until certain world events began to reveal themselves to God's servant. Today we now understand how it will happen. But when does it happen? "When many run to and fro and knowledge is increased." There is a dual interpretation in this text. First, travel is reaching unparalleled proportions, and knowledge is doubling very 12 months. The second meaning is that during the time of the end and inordinate fascination for knowledge about latter-day predictions would increase with people running "to and fro" to learn everything possible concerning the prophecies about the return of Jesus. This where we are at today in the sequence of end-time events. Soon Jesus will call His church away to be with Him, after which He returns 7 years later, with His Bride (Church) to rule and reign. It's beginning to take shape (Today Headlines tells us that-Just as the Holy Ghost, through Daniel. said it would. Next writing Time, Times and a Half
Finally Mysteries Unsealed 12 Feb 2014
What we have referred to as the "fourth " vision of Daniel that began in chapter 10. now reaches its grand climax in chapter 12 with its prophecies about the Great Tribulation, the resurrection of Old Testament saints, the sealing of prophecy until the time of the end, and the abomination of desolation. Everything that we have studied to this point has been prologue to the magnificent conclusion of Daniel's prophecy. We being chapter 12 with reference to Daniel's people-the Jews-and to the archangel Michael, the protector of the nation of Israel-an assignment that has already been a full time job for him throughout the ages and, is some ways, has only begun Read Daniel 12; 1-3) While Michael has been the protective overseer of the Jews throughout their history, his work will become more critical in the days ahead.. The end-time reality for the Jews, according to the prophecy, will deteriorate into something worse than anything anyone has ever witnessed in world history. Therefore, when you and I think we have it difficult at any given time, we must remember that the pain and sorrow we may be suffering will pale into insignificance when compared with the trials and tribulations yet to come to so many. Jeremiah 30:7 says, "Alas for that day is great, so that none is like it; even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it." Jesus confirmed Jeremiah's prophecy in Matt 24: 21 when He said, "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be," However Jesus says that Michael the protector will also be there on the scene, doing battle with Stan in the heavenlies (Re. 12:7-8). In Daniel 12;1 we see Daniel "standing for the people of Israel." Why will Michael be there? So that the Jews might be saved physically. That's Michael's job, and the Jews-at the time of the end-will never need assistance more that during the time of "Jacob's trouble"- that period during the tribulation hour when Russia marches down to the Middle East after the Antichrist has broken his peace contract with Israel-42 months after the contract has been in effect. Everything will be relatively smooth sailing up to that time, the epitome of economic and political sweetness and light, and then . Bam! Everything is smashed to piece at the midpoint of the Tribulation period (Dan. 9:27) as Russia goes up against' the land of unwalled villages...so them that are at rest, after dwell safety, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars or gates' (Ezekiel 38:11). This is the beginning of the great persecution for the Jews as Satan is cast out of heaven, with his primary assignment to obliterate the Jewish people from the face of the earth. (Rev. 12:13). For all these reasons, Michael will be there to stand up for his people, as reveled to Daniel in the first verse of chapter 12. "Those who Sleep" If you are a Jew, I want you to know that your Old Testament teaches the promise of a resurrection and that there will be life beyond the grave. Unfortunately, many Jews do not know that Daniel 12:2 is in the Bible. This end-time event is something one should look forward to if one has come to recognize that the expected Messiah is the Lord Jesus Christ and has received Him as their personal Savior. If your are a Gentile (which if you not a Jew . your are) who loves the Jewish people, it is paramount that you share this with your Jewish friends and encourage them to understand that there will be a place for them during these end-time events. Here's the way it will go- and it is a critical one for us to understand ins some detail. It all begins withe resurrection of the righteous at the time of the Rapture. We read in John 5: 28-29, "Marvel not at this, for the time is coming, that all there are in the grave shall hear his voice, And all shall come forth: they that have done good, , unto the resurrection of life." That is the Rapture. then "they that have done evil, into the resurrection of damnation," that is when the lost are raised as the end of the thousand years-to stand before Jesus Christ at the Great Whit Throne judgement (Rev 20:11-15). Rev 4;1 says, "After this I looked, and behold, a door opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me, which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter." At this time, we who are in the Lambs Book of Life- are gone-caught away to be with Christ. That is confirmed in 1 Thess. 4;16 which say, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first." Then we who are alive and remain-those who've lived up to this hour and are in the wedding (The Church) shall be caught up together with them-the dead- in t he clouds to meet the Lord in the air.

Midpoint of the Tribulation (Feb 7)
Russia now invades " the land of unwalled villages against that are at rest' (Ezekiel 38: 11). Israel became a nation in 1948 but has never been at rest since that day. Daily newspaper, T.V. are constantly portray ing the unrest in Israel. Soon a western leader out of the European Union will arise and confirm "the covenant" of peace for 7 years (Dan. 9: 27). However, even this final contract is short-lived between the Antichrist and Israel, lasting only 42 months, after which Russia strikes, aligned with Egypt and her confederation of Arabs. This, I repeat, is that first wave of military force marching against Israel in the Armageddon campaign. The china and the remnants of Russia's fallen army join in the fray for the second wave of Armageddon, as two hundred million soldiers move against Israel- not a difficult assignment for a nation which, in the next decade, will boost a population of more than 1.4 billion people. They will march out of the Orient downward across the areas of Iraq and Syria. Rev. says in 16:12 " The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates: and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of kings of the east might be prepared'". The second wave of gigantic military power eliminates 1/3 of earth's inhabitants (Rev. 9: 18). In spit of this colossal power, China and Russia are also defeated. Finally, in the third and closing scene of the Armageddon campaign, the Antichrist and his armies battle Christ in what becomes the war to end all wars. Armageddon or Har-Megeddo, is the gathering place (rev 16:16). From there the armies march into the valley of Jehoshaphat (Joel 3:2). The Zachariah 14:2 occurs as "all nation gather against Jerusalem to battle." The Antichrist has been doing everything in his power during the 42 months to pout our venom on his enemies, but now he speaks the ultimate blasphemy by saying, "I will stop the Kings of Kings from coming to power." Egotistically, he believes he will also be victorious against the Lord of hosts. Rev 19:19 sets the stage for this apocalyptic event: " I saw a beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Christ that sat on the horse, and against his army." In Rev 19:11, Christ appears on a white horse to rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. But stubborn and rebellious to the end, the Antichrist insists he will never be defeated by any enemy, including Christ. But this t he's wrong, because Christ destroys him by the brightness of His coming. (2 Thess. 2:8) Christ then takes the beast-the global dictator-along with the false prophet who headed up the world church- and casts them both alive into the lake of fire (Rev 19:20). A thousands year later, when Satan is thrown into the same lake of fire, the beast and the false prophet are still existence, suffering torment of hell for-ever and ever. Again this final reminder: If God proved himself 135 times in the earlier portion of Daniel chapter 11, He will surely fulfill these remaining prophecies-and not just some day, but in our day. When will this event happen? At the time of the end. (Dan 11;4; 12-4) Its later than you think. Her;s why. Th ancient Jewish writing-Avodah Zara 3B states; "The war of Gof and Magog (Russia) will be one of the key events to usher in the Messianic era." The Rev. Jerusalem Targum added, "At the end of the days, God and Magog shall march against Jerusalem, but perish by the handof the Messiah." Ezekiel 39:6 verifies this. The stage is now set for the Antichrist to appear. The seven years after the evil one's dominion of the international scene, Jesus Christ returns to rule on earth in majesty and great glory for one thousand years-the explosive finale to this great Book of Daniel, and out focus in chapter 12..

He is the upcoming scenario.The Antichrist will sit in Jerusalem-in the Jewish temple at the midpoint of the Tribulation hour-the second three and one half years, calling himself God. Since he knows that he only has a short time to do his global mischief while incarnated with Satan, he spews forth wrath and hatred. When he hears that Russia and the Arab federation are invading the region, he moves at neckbreak speed and puts an end to the militaristic activity of Russia, Egypt, and her hoards. The European Union has taken a position in the conflict and the Antichrist has subdued and driven back the first wave of Russian and its allies. At this point Russian has fled to Siberia (Joel 2:20). now the second movement of troops is about to move into the Middle East for another invasion of Israel. Dan. 11:44 states: "Tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy." The Antichrist is now on a bloody rampage. He's heard that great oriental armies are moving down into the region to do battle accompanied by the leftover rag-tag army of Russian that have previously been pushed back to Siberia. This frustrates him as he wonders how he'll be able to fend off two hundred million troops who are out to destroy him (Rev.9:16). He's now afraid and fears he will be unable to maintain enough power base to defend himself. During this time, the Antichrist is killed by Gog of Russia (Dan. 11:45). But, as we learned earlier, he suddenly comes back to life, duplicating the resurrection of Christ-something no one in history has ever done (Rev 13:3) He flaunts this demonic miracle and uses it to again position himself as a god among men, reestablishing himself when he needs it most-when his reputation and strength are on the line. Because of his miraculous resurrection, all the world worships him (Rev 13:8). Verse 45 of this chapter says, "And he shall plant the tabernacle of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him." The Bible Teaches that the Antichrist is going to plant himself between the seas-the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean. The holy mountain, which is Jerusalem, is here he will live for 3 1/2 years after his resurrection, usurping the Jewish throne as he sets himself up as God in the Jewish temple. Second Thess. 2: 4, says "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that worshipped: so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

If one took the name Meshech back to its origin, it would be Meshech, then Mosach, then Mosoti, then Mpscovi, and finally Moscows.
The Seventieth Week is just about here. In verse 4o we read, 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 w whirlwind, with chariots a,d with horsemen, and with many ships: and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and passover." This king of the South Egypt, combines with a federation of Arab nations that will unite with Egypt. These countries are listed in Ezekiel 38:5-6 as Persia ( modern day Iran and Iraq), Ethiopia, Lybia, and Togarmah (Turkey). Syria is mentioned in Isaiah 17:1, and the listing continues in Psalm 83:4-8 as Edom. Moab, Ammon (Jordon), Gebal and tyre (Lebanon, and the Philistines (Palestine). The king of the north, Russia, also appears on the scene, coming form the North as prophesied in Ezekiel 38:15 and 39:2) Similar reference to these northern military movements can be found in Jeremiah 1:13, 6:22, 10:22, and Joel 2:20. In fact one draws a line from Palestine of old-Israel today-to the north pole, one must go through Russia, and actually intersect the city of Moscow. Furthermore, Gog, Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are all cities indentifiable within Russia today. The prophecies of Daniel's fourth revelation are on the edge of fulfillment. The message of verse 40 is taking shape. Since God kept His promises 135 times in the first 35 verses of Daniel chapter eleven, there can be no argument that he will keep the promises He made in verse 40 to 45. Here Comes The Antichrist. Three will be there attacks against Jerusalem at the time of the end. The three military advances mentioned will be observed and explain as we move along in our discussion of the 42 month Armageddon campaign. While Russia heads south to do battle, she will be a mighty force to reckon with as she comes against the Antichrist's army with chariots, horsemen, and many ships. This is the first wave of the three pronged Armageddon campaigned. mentioned in Daniel 11:40 when the king of the south and her Arab federation and the king of their north Russia begin their drive. Ezekiel 38:16 says, :"And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud covers the land: it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, When I shall be sanctified in thee, O God, before their eyes.' Once Russia has made her move, the Antichrist will be furious. He will enter the "Glorious land," Israel. Next writingThe Scenario
The Antichrist ( Jan 24 2014)
Not only is the Antichrist a great opponent of Almighty God and His people, but he is also a great deceiver. He comes as a man of peace, making a binding covenant with Israel at the beginning of the seventieth seven of years. This pact will tie Israel so tightly to the Antichrist that Israel will, for all practical purposes be an "arm" of this revived Roman ruler in the Middle East. Therefore, any attack on Israel will be regarded as an attack on the Antichrist himself. But later when Israel is attacked Russian and Egypt (kings of the South and the North) we will see the pact with Israel for the sham it really is. How deceitful will the Antichrist be? Dan. 11;38 says, "He shall honour the God of forces; and a god whom his father knew not shall be honour with gold, silver, and with percious stones, and pleasant things." The Antichrist will get his own way because of his ability to beguile virtually all the nations of the earth with his smooth tongue and New Age-like thinking, wresting the entire world under his control. The gods he honors will be the New Age gods, people, and personalities, all minor gods of whom he, the Antichrist, is chief. It will be a Robin Hood scenario where he takes form the rich and gives to the poor-an activity for which he will receive uncritical, rave reviews. He will heap masses of money and an abundance of material things upon the have-nots of the world and they will honor and follow him as so many fall over the precipice until he gets what he wants, But watch out, because at this point this European Union Pied Piper will rid himself of his most ardent followers. Revelation 13:1-18 is an important reminder of the global extent of this dictator. It is import for you to open your Bible and read these Passage in Revelation, because of its detailed predictions of what this "beast" or Antichrist will resemble. Notice, Here is a beast who ill be killed and then resurrected as Christ was (Dan 11;45 ; Rev. 12:3). To ensure that his power base remains unchallenged, he will make all take this mark 666 rich, poor, free and bond and either on the forehead or the right hand (note it seems that if you don't make the rapture or one of the 144,000 Jews that are sealed, you are doomed). This mark is mandatory for buying or selling, something simple as a loaf of bread. Unknown to most people these numbers in various forms are already being put in place.. Things are moving as a speedy pace toward that mark of 666. Next writing the Seventieth Week in detail
The King of the time of the end. (Jan 2o)
Up to this point in Chapter 11, the 135 prophecies that deal with Persian and Grecian empires have been fulfilled with minute precision-every event verified and documented by the rigors of both the religious and secular history, and culminating with the "end days" of the wicked Antiochus Epiphanes (164 B.C.) No, however-beginning with verse 36-we find ourselves in new territory. Here we suddenly confront prophecies that have not yet been fulfilled.. We are now stepping into a rear that speak of yet of things yet to be fulfilled-specifically the life and times of the Antichrist who will wield hos worldwide influence for seven years as his worldwide reign lead up to the second coming of Christ. As the Antichrist of the Great Tribulation is described in Daniel's revelation, we learn again that he does as he pleases, magnifies himself above every god, speaks terrible things against God and prospers until the "indignation" is finished (Rev 14:10). He will be an absolute dictator who, like a child, demands his own way and expects to accomplish all his objectives on his own terms. The Antichrist will blaspheme the one true God and will do monstrous things against God of gods. You'll recall that the same thing was said of his predecessor-the little horn of Dan. 7:25). In simple terms, the Antichrist will be a madman who claims he is deity, one who will run the "end time show" in and attempt to obliterate Israel. The Scripture also adds that he will not ' regard the desire of women" ( Some scholars believe that this may mean that he may be a homosexual. But this does not fit the context. more in line is that this is a specific urge or craving the women of Israel had to become the mother of the Messiah, fulfilling Micah 5:2 and Isaiah 9;6-7. Therefore the Antichrist hates God-and hates Christ. He has no regards for Christ, the desires of women for centuries to bear and deliver the Messiah. The Antichrist will hate Jesus so much, and become so violently opposed to everything for which He stand for, that he not only refuses to bow down and worship Christ, but executes those who do (Rev. 13:15; 20-4) Some believe that the Antichrist will be a Jew who has departed for the God of his fathers, Yakweh. I don't believe this is possible because according to prophecy he must come form the revived Roman Empire and must therefore be a "son" born within the European Union. I believe that we can expect the Antichrist to be a Gentile who defects for his religious upbringing and avowed believer in the New Age movement. Remember the New Age thinking is much more harmful that a few innocent crystals, shamans, incense-burning bookstores, Tarot cards, and some mystical, put you to sleep music. Pay attention to those ministers, who say "you are little gods", or "you can be like a god", or, "you can make your own happiness, " or "you need to do nothing more than center your self in your own consciousness" or, "There are many paths to god". They set themselves as being as good as God.. These words are a blasphemy against the true God. and create an apostate atmosphere in which the Antichrist will feel much at home. We have ears to hear must remember that God is revealing these final truths to Daniel. Today this Book is now open and unsealed, The predicted events are happening and the "End time of the end" has arrived

North and the South War (Jan 17)
From verse 5 we began to see a powerful struggle between the kings of the South-Egypt and the kings of the North Assyria today's Syria, They were always at each others throats, alternating victories. It was a seesaw world of power grabbing, place intrigue, and battle fatigue for supreme command of the region. Finally a scheme was devised to put and end to these constant wars that were taking its toll on the people and their respective governments. This is the plan. Ptolemy II had a daughter , Berenice and it was decided that she would marry Antiochus II of Syria a union design to create a long and lasting peace. However the best laid plans of kings and princess often do meet expectations, and since it was a forged marriage, Antiochus II hated the arrangements. However he chose to live with what he disliked. But when the king of Egypt died, Antiochus seen he had an opportunity to get rid of his spouse-which he did. He divorced her and took back his original wife, Laodice. The soap opera continue to play out a when Laodice overcome with jealousy, had Berenice poisoned along with most of her family. In the end, the hoped for peace between Egypt and Syria did not hold. In fact, this was only the beginning of the shedding of blood between Egypt and Syria. Other well know names began to surface the next four century men such as Prolemy Euergetes, Seleucus Callininicus, Antiochus III, and Ptolemy Philopator, along with the wicked Antiochus Epiphanes who upon returning from Egypt after having amassed great wealth, began to show his hate for the Jewish people, and attitude best described by the phrase, "His heart shall be against the holy covenant'. (Verse 28). This beast of a man would also be a precursor of the persecution of an end-time global dictator exercises against Israel during the Great Tribulation hour. We have seen earlier that Antiochus was the designated archetype of the "future man of iniquity"-the Antichrist yet to come. I believe that he is alive and about ready for his appearance on the world scene and bring us to the end-time. It is impossible to do justice to history that takes place between verses 1 and 35 without writing an major compendium on the prophecies and their actual fulfillment. There are already many commentaries available that deal with such issues. For our purpose, however, the most important, underlying message of these first 35 verses is this: They contain 135 Bible prophecies that have been 100% fulfilled. There is no supportive evidence in history to contradict any of the 135 prophecies. Everything prophecies has come true.. They provide a convincing introduction to end-time events- a period of time in history that is rapidly approaching. Prophecies still to come in this chapter can be expected to be fulfilled in the same manner of the 135 prophecies were in the first 35 verse of chapter 11.
