TO RULE INSTEAD OF CHRIST

The Pope is the “Vicar of Christ.” Vicar means to rule in the place of or instead of. Dave Hunt, a Catholic, tells us that the word “Anti” as in Antichrist, means “against” AND “instead of.” He says that Antichrist will oppose Christ, while pretending to be Christ.” That, to me, is a damning statement.

All eyes were on September 2015. Well, not all eyes but the eyes that were opened by the Spirit of God and the eyes of the Pharisees and Professional Debunkers who were waiting to pounce, should nothing obvious happen.

Those of us who were watching, moved by observations of God’s Calendar, historical precedent, and the unmistakable signs in the Heavens, wondered aloud about the possibility of a worldwide financial crash or a major attack on Israel. We were all very careful to warn our audience that there remained the greatest possibility that nothing obvious would happen and that events could follow those dates by several months and still fit into the historical patterns.

The Pharisees and professional debunkers, based not on what we said and wrote, but solely on their own imaginations, accused us of prophesying the Rapture or the end of the world. But those of us who were watching, never prophesied at all. We merely pointed out easily verifiable, historical patterns and stated that, based on the testimony of Scripture and demonstrable historical patterns, it was very likely that something of earth-shattering importance would happen, in or around the month of September 2015.

When nothing obvious (to the spiritually blind) happened, the Pharisees and Professional Debunkers pointed in glee and accused us of falsely predicting the Rapture and the end of the world, forgetting that it was they, themselves, who put forth those ideas.

With all the signs that pointed to September 2015, the spiritually awake and the Watchmen on the Wall must go back and carefully look at that month and honestly ask what, in fact, did happen. We must assume that, as hard as God worked to bring attention to that month, something important, something that God wanted us to take note of must have happened.

Because the Rabbis, 2,000 years ago, were looking for Messiah to come riding into Jerusalem on a white horse, raise an army and defeat the Romans, the birth of a Savior in a stable in Bethlehem went unnoticed. Did Scripture tell them that Messiah would be born in Bethlehem? Yes. Were there signs in the Heavens? Yes. Did Scripture talk of a Suffering Servant? Yes. Did they recognize him? No. Why did they not recognize him? Because, Rabbis had taught for generations that when Messiah came, He would ride into Jerusalem on a white horse, raise an army and defeat the Romans. What the Scripture said did not matter anymore. Obvious signs in the Heavens… signs clearly understood by the magicians of Babylon, were blatantly ignored by the Rabbis and the leaders of the Jews. The highly venerated Rabbis were wrong and Israel missed the Messiah.

The same thing is happening today. The Church leaders, convinced, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the venerated pastors and teachers of yesterday were correct and that they know what will happen, are ignoring plain Scripture and obvious signs in the Heavens and in the earth because these signs are not big enough or bright enough and they do not line up with what the venerated teachers have taught for generations on end.

More than that, for the last 150 years or so, the venerated teachers and writers of Christian Fiction have been teaching that the Rapture would happen first and that there was nothing to look for because we won’t be here anyway. Scripture tells us exactly what to look for and Jesus commanded us to watch but never mind, there is nothing to look for, just keep busy and don’t think.

Contrary to the writings of today’s Pharisees and Debunkers much did happen in September of 2015, you have your list and I have mine. Was there one thing that happened that month that was worthy of all that attention? Even those of us who were spiritually sensitive were looking for something almost as obvious as the Messiah riding into Jerusalem on a white horse, looking for an army. What we got was as subtle as the birth of a baby in a stable in Bethlehem.

Jesus once looked the rulers of Israel in the eye and declared, “I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.” (John 5:43)

In September, between the end of the Shemitah and the last Blood Moon of a once in forever Biblical Tetrad, the Vicar of Christ, the one who “Rules instead of Christ”, a man, accepted as God by his followers and applauded by men, stood before the largest group of world leaders ever assembled, opened his mouth and said, “In my own name…”

“In my own name”

If it were not for the end of the Shemitah and all the historical events surrounding that date and if it were not for the last Blood Moon of a once in eternity tetrad, I would not have heard that, and neither would you.

Do not be concerned that the Doctors of Theology, Pastors, Pharisees, and Christian leaders have missed the revelation of the Man of Sin, The Jews missed the birth of Jesus, looking for a man on a horse.

Deception, powerful and supernatural deception is coming. May I quote Jesus? “Therefore, watch!”

David…

      1. I have read every proof for every stand. I have been told by people in every group that, if I was a “Real Christian” I would know they were right… In the end, they just shuffle around the same verses, elevate some, demote others and explain some away, so that their list supports their stand… I am a bit tired of it all…
