The mystery of iniquity

What is this mystery, if Paul calls it a mystery, then we should not believe the simple interpretations that we have been taught.

When Paul speaks the word mystery it’s not a statement he uses lightly.

There are two main interpretations of this in the church. The reformers believed that this was the Roman Catholic Church; and the man of sin was the pope.

This has shifted more recently with the establishment of the state of Israel.

Large parts of the church now believe that these events will take place once the temple is rebuilt, in which triggers the revealing of the man of sin.

Paul calls him the man of sin. This word man that he uses, is the same word in the Greek as he used when he says.

The first man, Adam, became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 1 Corinthians 15-45

The first man is from the earth, earthy; the second man is from heaven.

As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly.

And just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 1 Corinthians 15-47,48,49

Adam the man is a racial representation of a type of humanity.

Christ the man is also a representation of a kind of humanity.

When Paul is speaking of the man of sin, he is using the same kind of language as he uses in 1 Corinthians.

I believe Paul was not alluding to an individual character called the man of sin.

What I believe Paul was speaking of was a type of humanity.

The seeds of this humanity were already planted in the days of the Apostles.

John called it the Antichrist.

The leaven of this type of humanity was already in the early church well before the Roman Church came into being.

When the Lord was asked about the tares in with the wheat, Jesus didn’t say pull the tares out, he said let them grow together until the harvest, harvest time is when the difference will be known.

The Lord was asked were did these tares come from; the Lord said that the evil one planted them among the wheat.

So this leaven has been apart of the church since the time of the apostles.

What the end of the age does is, it matures the two kinds of humanities that are in the church.

These two types of humanity are not localized in one expression, they are scattered throughout the whole body of Christendom.

They grow together as one family until harvest time.

Then comes the end when the Lord sends his angels to separate the two, notice its not until the end of the age until we truly know what is what.

So in the main stream of the true church family is this kind of humanity, it looks like the real thing, acts like the real thing, even has spiritual power to show great signs and wonders, but inwardly they are false.

But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed. 2 Peter 2, 1-3

Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have come from God. For there are many false prophets in the world. This is how we know if they have the Spirit of God: If a person claiming to be a prophet acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a real body, that person has the Spirit of God. But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here. 1 John 4, 1-3

The problem is, they don’t know this, they think they are the true, they think that what is being manifested through them is truly the power of God.

But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them. But we belong to God, and those who know God listen to us. If they do not belong to God, they do not listen to us. That is how we know if someone has the Spirit of truth or the spirit of deception. 1 John 4, 4-6

The sad thing is the true sheep usually get fooled by them, Not knowing that Satan can, and does transform himself into an angel of light. 

These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve. 2 Corinthians 11, 13-15

John said believe not every spirit, you have an anointing from holy one that should alert you to the thing if it truly is of God, or the evil one.

The really sad part is that there are so few who really question the things that are taking place in the name of Christ today.

We are in a state today, that if we feel some kind of supernatural power, then it must be of God.

This is the same condition that the Jews were in when Jesus was among then, always looking for signs and wonders, remember what the Lord said, a evil and adulterous generation seeks these things.

The word that the Lord gave them then, is the same word he is giving now, the only sign that will be given is the sign of Jonah, the word of the cross, this is the place that we truly find the power of God, this is the place of true reality.

Babylon, the city of the nations?

And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth dismay among the nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the wave, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Luke 21-25,26,27

Speak to Zerubbabel governor of Judah saying, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. And I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations. Haggai 2- 21,22

The coming of the Lord is the event, that triggers the shaking of the powers of this age, from their high places authority over the nations.

Everything that we presently know as reality will be turned upside down.

The natural expressions, which will be convulsive in nature, is the invisible reality of war in heaven.

And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there has not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great a earthquake was it, and so mighty.

And the great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And Babylon the great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of his fierce wrath. Revelation 16-18,19

And the woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth. Revelation 17-18

This harlot figure of the book of revelation, is first the powers who rule this world, then secondly it is the earthly expressions of this power. It’s not some institution, it’s everything that expresses this heavenly reality.

Many biblical expositors try to make this harlot of revelation something, which has a fixed point in this world.

There are many fixed points, which express this reality of Babylon, but the power of Babylon lies with the heavenly powers, who are the rulers of this age.

If we try to point to something in the world and say, this is Babylon, it becomes a headless body.

Babylon is very much alive in this world, but we have to realize that it is only an expression of the heavenly cosmic, spiritual reality.

Babylon is first the world spirit. Behind this spirit is the prince of the powers of the air. He is the one who works in the children of disobedience. He is the energizing force that is released into the nations.

We hate to believe this, but we live in a world, which is dominated and expressed by his image.

This world in its present state and condition, is the image of Babylon.

Humanity is now only just racing into the full development of this Antichrist spirit.

Antichrist is not something that is coming. Antichrist has been with us since the beginning.

What we are witnessing today is the full development of this figure, we already worship the beast.

The number 666, is the full development of this man of sin.

He dwells in the life of Adam. This is his arena of operation. If you live in the Adamic life, then you are under his authority.

Adam is the slave to this spirit. It’s like Adam is in union with this man of sin now.

This world outside of the life of Christ, is chained to this man of sin. They are forced into doing his will, they can’t break free from the chains that hold them.

The only escape, is through the cross, which means regeneration into the new humanity, who is the Christ.

Mankind has now become a beast, he is something totality other and different than what God created.

We are living in a time when we are calling evil good, and good evil.

This world spirit is now growing in leaps and bounds. God only knows what the full expression will look like when fully developed.

I remember a brother speaking to me one day. He said, the world is looking and waiting for the man of sin to arrive on the scene, but he said, don’t you know? he lives in you now?

After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority. And the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried with a mighty voice, saying fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! And she has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. For all the nations have drunk the wine of her passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her my people, that you may not participate in her sins and that you may not receive of her plagues. Revelation 18-1,2,3,4

The end of all things are near?

We are fast approaching the end of all things.

There is a great transition coming to this earth.

There is a completely different reality coming to this world, which is so other to what is now.

This whole world system, which we presently are related to, is in a state of complete rebellion against the God of heaven.

When we see as God sees this world, it is a devastating event for us.

When one is given, and brought into the realm and reality, of the truth of the condition of this world, then one is completely shocked at the truth of it.

This world is an enemy of God, but also everything, which represents the truth of God.

This whole world system is built on a foundation of lies.

The very atmosphere, and air we breathe in the world, is charged with hostility, rebellion, and evil.

When we truly see, as God sees, then we begin to believe what the Bible teaches, about the condition of this present evil world.

All that is in this world is hostile, and in state of rebellion, against the truth of what God says about it.

The real rulers of this present evil age, they are the real gods of this system, and order and reality.

Humanity is cradled in this reality, and the dominion of the fallen powers, who rule in this evil age.

To see the truth of what is lying behind this world, is a shocking event once witnessed.

It is very hard to believe the truth of this world, until the veil is lifted, and then we see as God sees reality.

love not this world, neither the things of this world, If we love the things in this world, then we make ourselves the enemy of God.

This world is under the judgment of God.

It is a terrifying seeing of what is coming to this world.

If the righteous are scarcely saved, then what is ahead for those who know not God?

The truth is, that the bible means what it says, and says what it means.

To love this world, is not to believe, in the coming calamity, which the bible teaches, is coming to this world.

But when one is born of God, and then God gives you seeing, as he sees, then you know why its so true, and is not a lie.

Jesus always said, I tell you the truth.

When we see as God sees, the real condition of this world, then we start to believe, why the coming wrath of God is truth, and just?

Prophetic reflection

This morning I felt the Lord saying. As the days escalate into the time of the coming of the Lord, there is coming events that will mirror the book of Daniel.

I believe we are about to be visited and helped by angelic beings, in the role as helping us with the coming calamities and events, which are related to the return of the master.

I believe that angelic beings will again become a more and more present reality in the midst of his people. They will be sent to assist the church of the end days to help release the power of the age to come.

Like the chief prince Micheal, in the book of Daniel, he was sent to protect the chosen of the Lord.

They will be sent as to assist the end time church into the proclamation of the return of the king, with mighty signs and wonders, which we haven’t witnessed since the times of the Apostles.

I believe the heavens and earth are about to come together again, when these events start to take place, and I believe have already begun, we will be witnesses to unbelievable and profound events on this earth.

I believe a door in the heavenlies has been opened up for the church to enter. The Lord says come in my people, and I will show you the things that are happening, but and also the things that are about to come.

Is the rapture of the church biblical?

I am starting to be more and more convinced that the event of the coming of the Lord, is very much different than what has been taught.

We have been taught that the Lord is coming to take his church out of the world, and then send his wrath on the nations. Either pre, mid, or post, the so called tribulation period, which really isn’t found in the bible.

The bible speaks about a time, which is called great tribulation, but this is not a seven year time frame.

I am beginning to have some questions on this theology, which is taking out the Church and then sending wrath and judgment.

Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.

He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.“As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. 42 They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear. Matthew 13, 36-43

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Matthew 24, 37-42

The more I go through the words of the Lord in the gospels, the more it looks and sounds, that its not the believes who are taken out of the world, but its the wicked who are removed? The bible talks about outer darkness, which sounds like a place away from this world of creation?

The story of the flood is very interesting, it says that the flood came and took them all away. After the judgment of the flood, only Noah and his family were the ones who remained in the world.

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 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. 1 Thessalonians 4, 16-17

Paul doesn’t say that the Lord takes us out of the world and back to heaven, all he says is that we will meet in the air? This event is the second coming of Christ, he doesn’t leave and go back to heaven again.

Since everything around us is going to be destroyed like this, what holy and godly lives you should live, 12 looking forward to the day of God and hurrying it along. On that day, he will set the heavens on fire, and the elements will melt away in the flames. 13 But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness. 2 Peter 3, 11- 13

When I look at these verses from 2 Peter. Peter says that everything around us is going to be destroyed. It sounds like we will be witnesses to the transformations of the heavens and the earth. One order of heavenly and earthly reality will melt away and be removed, and another reality will be revealed. Peter does not say that we will be gone. All he says is that everything around us will be transformed. A new reality of heaven and earth will be revealed, as the old order and all who belong to it, vanish away in the judgments of God.

What I believe is that when the events of the coming wrath and judgment of God are revealed. This will be the event of the transformation of the creation. From the old of what we see and feel, to the new, which is invisible to us by nature, but very real if one has eyes to see it?

This is the hope of the creation, that the Lord comes and removes all the evil and hostility from his creation, which I believe also involves the present rulers of this age, who are the invisible gods of this world, which are ripe for the coming judgment of God.

Tell Zerubbabel governor of Judah that I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. 22 I will overturn royal thrones and shatter the power of the foreign kingdoms. Haggai 2, 20-21

See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”[e]27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Hebrews 12, 25-27

The shaking of the coming Judgment and wrath of God is to remove the things, which can be shaken. The things that will remain are the things that can not be shaken, which is the Kingdom of the new creation, which is in the midst of us?

Israel and the powers of this age

This is the last piece of the eschatological puzzle before the return of the Lord.

The restoration of Israel under Christ is the event of all events.

This final last day’s return of the natural branches to Christ, as a nation, is the trigger that releases the spiritual into the natural.

History has seen an inflow of Jews to Christ on an individual level, which is the election of grace.

But we have not yet been witness to a rebirth of the entire nation.

This Isaiah says, that a nation shall be born in a day.

This single last eschatological event releases the Messianic kingdom from the heavens to the earth.

The fullness of all the messianic promises waits for this moment in history.

If there is no nation then the promises are of non-effect.

The powers are very aware of this reality; this is why the last day’s antagonism against this nation will be greater than history has yet witnessed.

We have already witnessed the sad plight of the Jew throughout history.

This event is what the bible calls the time Jacobs’s trouble, but Jacob will be delivered from it.

But we really do not know the full extent to this trouble; some believe it is on a level greater than the, I can’t even say the words. My heart breaks to even fathom such an event.

If we didn’t see it in the scriptures we wouldn’t dare say it, but it is there.

It’s a reality that I can’t even fathom.

The only thing that will save this nation from this final last days devastation is the return of the Lord.

The scriptures are very clear on this, there is a persecution that is coming, which we have not yet witnessed.

The powers of the air will release their full final last days furry against this people, through the agency of their earthly rulers and servants.

We are now witnessing this event take shape.

The isolation of Israel is beginning to form.

I don’t believe this event will be confined to the middle east, I believe it will be through all the nations, but the center of it will be in the land of Israel.

Art Katz said that the issue of Israel is the issue of the nations.

The nations will continue to be in rebellion against God, until this chosen nation comes inline to their chosen destiny, which is to be the theocratic rule of God to the nations.

This has been their national calling from the beginning.

They will be the light that enlightens the rebellious gentiles.

But this event waits for their reinstatement into the covenant tree, which is Christ our Lord.

They must be reborn, not as individuals but as a nation.

This the powers know much better than we, they are very versed in the prophetic scripture.

But what the powers are blind to is the wisdom of the cross, they can’t grasp this mystery, it is a foreign wisdom to them.

In their last day’s evil lust of casting this nation into the sea, they at the end of this event are the ones that are destroyed.

They like Haman, hang on their own gallows, which they have prepared for this people.

I personally believe this last day’s event births the resurrection from among the dead.

I believe the two events are one in nature.

The first resurrection, which is the church, when we meet the Lord in the air, triggers the natural resurrection of the nation.

I can’t see how one can happen without the other.

The nation cannot be reborn until the powers are defeated, the defeat of the powers by Christ is the event the triggers their national rebirth.

This time they will say, you are our God; we have waited for you.

Then the Lord will say those wonderful words, you are now my true people, you name is no longer Jacob you are now Israel my servant.

The judge is at the door

So, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. Matthew 24-33

I believe that the creation is rapidly escalating into the event of all events, when the Lord, who I believe is now standing at the door of history waiting for the time, when the father releases him back into the theater of the visible history of this world.

The Lord has for the last two thousand years been standing behind the door of history. Jesus has been ruling and reining in the heavens over Gods creation, but the time is fast approaching and now is, when the Lord will once again enter the arena of the history of this world.

It is the day when he comes in flaming fire, as the judge and king, over his creation.

It is the day of his great justice, when his judgments will be visibly witnessed by the nations.

I will declare the decree: The Lord hath said unto Me, ‘Thou art My Son; this day have I begotten Thee.

Ask of Me, and I shall give Thee the heathen for Thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for Thy possession.

Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel. Psalm 2:7-9

One can almost feel the heavens bursting at the seams in climatic anticipation of the coming of the King, riding on a white horse over the armies of heaven.

Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. 13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in[a] blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. 15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule[b] them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:11-16

And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Revelation 6: 15-17

We are entering holy days, days that no human has witnessed before. Days that are written by the prophets, which are epic in nature. The days when the heavens invade the earth. When the elements of the creation are altered and bent in ways that will shock us.

Many scholars believe that two thirds of the prophetic proclamations of the Messiah are yet to be fulfilled.

The days ahead, I believe will continue to rapidly escalate in scope and scale, every coming event will be more epic and dramatic in nature.

We are entering apocalyptic times and seasons in the history of creation.

The things that are coming, and are at the door, will stun and stagger our sensibilities.

Vision of the wrath to come

The lord brought me into an experience that was terribly terrifying.

I believe it was related to the wrath that is coming to this world.

This event was with me for about five days. It escalated day by day to the place that I thought that I couldn’t bare much more.

What I believe is coming is so beyond human understanding. It was sheer terror. It felt like the whole world was naked and bare in the reality of it.

I felt that every fiber in me was naked and guilty in the presence of it.

No words can do justice to what I believe was a unveiling of what is coming to this world.

The whole atmosphere was changed. There was no place to hide. No place to run. Its like the whole state of present reality changed form.

Its hard to put it into words the experience. All I know is if this is what is coming to the world then its going to be a terrifying event.

It was such a feeling of absolute guilt. Nothing but deserved wrath.

I felt it was what I was deserving of. The guilt was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. A sense of an absolute rejection of God. And I felt it was completely deserved.

I had nothing in me that I felt was of any value or good. Every ounce of my being was guilty before God.

I’m not one who talks much about the wrath that is coming, but if this was an initial revealing of what is coming, it will be a terrifying day.

All I know is the helplessness I felt in this seeing. A sense of no hope, but also a sense of what I was experiencing was what I deserved.

As the days of Noah

Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked on the earth and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.

Then God said to Noah, the end of all flesh has come before me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth. Genesis 6-11,12,13

For the coming of the son of man will be just like the days of Noah.

For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, they were marrying and given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took -them all away; so shall the coming of the son of man be. Mathew 24- 37,38,39

For this reason you be ready too; for the son of man is coming at an hour when you do not think he will. Mathew 24-44,

Know this that first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, where is the promise of his coming? For even since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.

For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water, and by water, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water

But the present heavens and earth by his word are being reserved for fire, kept for the Day of Judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as one day.

The Lord is not slow about his promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

But the day of the lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat,

And the earth and its works will be burned up.

Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness

Looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, on account of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat!

But according to his promise we are looking for a new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. 2 Peter 3-3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13

As we see the things that are taking place in the earth today, I wonder if people are still mocking, I think we are starting to get past that, I hear a lot of people saying, what is going on?

The mocking is beginning to turn into fear.

See to it that you do not refuse Him that is speaking. For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned them from earth, much less shall we escape who turn away from him who warns from heaven?

And his voice shook the earth then, but now he has promised, saying, yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also heaven.

And this expression, yet once more, denotes the removing of those things, which can be shaken, as of created things, in order that those things, which cannot be shaken, may remain.

Therefore, since we receive a kingdom, which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12-25,26,27,28,29

The bible says that the last great shaking will be an earthly shaking, but this time it also will be heavenly.

Evil and sin have their origin in the heavenly realms.

The forces of evil, which dwell in the midst of humanity will also be shaken from their places of governmental authority.

The prince of this present world, and Adams race will come to the final rejection of God.

All things outside of Christ will be summoned to the Judgment, which was bore when the Son of Man hung on the cross of Calvary.

And he led him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to him, I will give you all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whom ever I wish. Therefore if you worship before me, it shall all be yours. Luke 4-5,6,7

What really happened at the cross, I don’t think people realize that the Son of god came to this earth, took the absolute blame for mans sin, bore the penalty for human sin, was rejected by the father, judged and put to death. But when he rose from the dead he started a new humanity.

At the cross of Christ the world has already been judged.

Mans fate outside of Christ is already a settled event now.

The kingdom of the heavens has been taken away from the rules of this age.

The prince of this world and his forces are waiting in great fear knowing their long false rein is soon coming to an climactic ending.

There is no hope for Adams race outside of regeneration into the new humanity of the Christ of God.

If we are not living in Christ, no matter what, or who you are, you are under the rule of the prince of this world.

Through Adams disobedience, the prince of the powers of the air has the rights over Adams race.

The days are coming when the prince of this world, and his principalities will be shaken from their places of power in the heavenly realms, then will be cast down into the earth.

Their hiding place will be taken away from them, then man will see who he has been unknowingly, but willfully serving.

And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. And the dragon and his angels waged war, and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Revelation 12- 7,8,9

The ark that Jesus is building began at the cross.

The day is coming when it will be completed, the door will be closed, then the day of the vengeance of God will begin.

The time of Jacobs trouble

The tension is growing in this world toward the Jew; nations are beginning to turn their backs on Israel, you can feel the tension in the spirit realm, the rulers of this present age are bullying the nations to turn on Israel, the powers of the air know full well what the restoration of Israel means for them.

Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah.

And it will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples around; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. In that day declares the Lord; I will strike every horse of the peoples with bewilderment, and his rider with madness. Zechariah 12-2,3,4

And it will come about in that day that I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over him, like the bitter weeping over a first born. Zechariah 12-9,10

For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished, and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city. Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when he fights on a day of battle.

And in that day his feet will stand on the mount of olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the mount of olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south Zechariah 14-2,3,4

And it will come about in that day that living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter.

And the Lord will be king over all the earth; in that day the Lord will be the only one, and his name the only one. Zechariah 14-8,9

We will know when the age is coming to a close by what is happening with the people of Israel, their national reinstatement as a nation into the new covenant, which we the church have been grafted into, releases all previous covenants made by God to this people.

They are key to the promises of the theocratic rule of the God of Israel over the nations.

The fullness of the messianic promises will be released when Israel as a nation receives their King.

That is why the powers of the air are so opposed to this people, they know the prophetic scriptures much better than we. They know what the restoration of this nation means for them and their long rule of terror over the nations. They know that when Israel as a nation calls on their messiah the game is over, their destiny as the gods of this age comes to a sudden ending, they are cast out of the vineyard of Gods world.

Israel’s existence is a prophet reminder, that the Lord will return and rule this world. The full furry of the enemy will be unleashed towards them before the return of the king. Their very presence in this world embodies the future reign of Christ over the nations.

I believe the rulers of this present age know that their time is short. The manifestations of hatred that are coming through the instruments of this present evil world reveal their great anxiety, you can almost feel the panic in the atmosphere, its like a raging antagonism is coming against the people of Israel.

I believe we are beginning to enter the time the bible calls Jacobs trouble, but on that day the Lord will deliver Jacob.

All that is in the world

The Apostle John said that this whole world is dominated and ruled by the evil one?

This present world, and system of reality, is under the dominion of the invading force called sin death and the devil.

The evil one, as he is known, is the present ruler of this hostile, to the God of heaven system, of what is reality in this present space and time in which we live in.

The layers of this truth run into the very depths of everything, which is of this present world system, of how things operate in this life.

This world is under the greatest deception of history. It is living under the great lie of the darkness, which hides this truth, that this world is dominated and ruthlessly ruled, and manipulated by a supernatural cosmic evil, which is of epic proportion and reality.

This sphere that broods over the nations is called by Jesus a kingdom, who Paul called the prince of the powers of the air, the spirit that now works in this system of reality, who are called the children of disobedience.

These deep bible truths are hidden in the realm of deep darkness, which is the natural atmosphere of this present world. It is the covering of the nations who live under this cloud?

It is a stunning event when the Lord opens our inner eyes, to see the depths of this calamity of the present reality of the truth of the condition of this world.

The depths of this union of sin death and the devil, in union with this world, run deep into the very foundations of all the systems of this anti God union, of humanity and the powers, who are the gods of this age.

This invisible sphere of reality, which has the reins to all the systems of this life, jerk and manipulate the nations into doing maddening things of extreme evil.

This unholy union goes into the very depths of our humanity. Its hard to see where one ends and the other begins.

This is the great lie that mankind does not want to believe, that he is under dominion of another. Humanity thinks that he is free, but humanity is a slave, a salve to a ruthless dictator, who’s very nature is evil at its being?

The return of the king

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 1 Thessalonians 5

The days are beginning to change. I believe we are fast approaching and have now entered days that we have not seen before, days that are rapidly escalating into apocalyptic times and seasons.

The sense from the Lord is that we have now entered into the time where there is no going back. A new day is dawning, a day that we have not seen, nor witnessed before.

We have become so accustomed to the evil of this world, that its hard to get the sense of the holiness of God. One needs to be brought into the heavenly tabernacle to see as God sees, to feel as God feels, to grieve as God grieves. The place where the true light of his glory shines as a lamp under our feet.

The wickedness in this world is ascending to the throne of God. The cup of iniquity is getting full. Multitudes upon multitudes are in the valley of indecision, the day of the Lord is coming, it is very near.

A day of the wrath of his jealous anger for his people. A day when he will bring his justice into the nations. The day when the cup of his anger will overflow, against all the injustice of a world that has gone mad in sin.

The day when Babylon the great harlot city, who rules over the nations, will be cast down from her high places of wickedness. The day when the rulers of this present evil age, are be cast down from their thrones of influence over the nations.

I believe there is a new sound coming from the throne of grace, It is the sound of the coming justice any mercy for the broken, the sound of healing and deliverance for the afflicted and crushed.

It is a wonderful day that is coming, the day when those that long for his great appearing have been waiting for, the day that generations upon generations have longed for.

We are nearer now than ever before, to the epic return of the king from his throne of glory.

“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that [e]it is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. Mathew 24

For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what [g]hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what [h]hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. Mathew 24
