TRUMP AS ANTIMESSIAH

It is with deception that the AntiMessiah comes…

This is my argument that Trump is the AntiMessiah…

ONE: Who the Antichrist is not…

The Prophecy teachers of the seventies worked off of some very false assumptions and in a vacuum of information. They could not have even imagined the world we live in today. Unfortunately, most Christians today have taken those teachings to heart, as if they were Scripture.

These people were firm believers in a Rapture that would remove all American Christians from the scene before the first hint of suffering could occur… They were, to a man, committed believers in a PreTrib Rapture. They were wrong.

While they might have been reticent to state it plainly, they all believed that the United States was the Kingdom of God on earth and that America would continue to represent the God of Heaven until the day of the PreTrib Rapture.

They believed that all of the descriptions of end times bad guys were speaking of one man whom they called Antichrist. The fact that one of these men came from Assyria and the other from Rome did not matter at all… they just ground them all up like hamburger, stuffed them in a mold and baked up an Antichrist. From this comes all of the silly arguments about how this verse says he is an Assyrian and this verse says that he is from Rome and my verse is right and your verse is wrong nonsense…

The Antichrist they baked up was a very bad man… He attacked and conquered Israel. He was so evil that no one who ever went to Sunday School could be deceived… He came on the scene as evil incarnate. But the Bible says that the Jews will accept him as Messiah and that the deception will be so good that without celestial intervention, even the Elect would be deceived… (How the Elect who were raptured and in Heaven might be deceived, I have no idea.)

TWO: The AntiMessiah is a Messiah.

John 5:43 “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him…”

2 Thessalonians 2: 3 … the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. /// 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false…

Ezekiel, Obadiah, and other prophets are in agreement that when the nations, and their evil leaders, attack Israel, God himself will destroy them. Obadiah tells us that “Esau will be left with no descendants. Edom will be destroyed… It is also very clear that the one who defeats Edom (generic for the enemies of Israel) will be from the Ten Tribes and not from Judah… The Jewish site, Chabad.org, says “”The House of Jacob will be a fire and the House of Joseph a flame, and the House of Esau for stubble.” (Obadiah 1:18): “the progeny of Esau shall be delivered only into the hands of the progeny of Joseph.” (Ten Tribes) This would mean that a Jew from the house of Josef destroys Edom…

According to 2 Thessalonians, the Man of Sin (Apollo) will sit in the Temple and call himself God. This forces us to understand that the Temple is built and the Antichrist has access to it. I believe that this is at the three and a half year mark. Up to this point, the Jews have accepted him as Messiah… Now, they realize that he is evil, they run to the wilderness where they are hidden by God and the AntiMessiah starts his war against the Saints…

THREE: Two Messiahs

If we understand that the AntiMessiah is to be Israel’s Messiah, it is helpful to understand who the Jews are looking for. When Jesus came, they rejected him because their Rabbis had long taught that Messiah would ride into Jerusalem on a horse, raise an army, defeat all of Israel’s enemies and rule the world from David’s throne… They are still looking for that guy, only they have split him into two Messiahs. You might understand their concept better if I called the first Messiah an Anti-John the Baptist, and the second Messiah the King of Israel and the Son of David…

This is from Chabad.org and tells us of Mashiach Ben Yosef… Whom they have openly identified as Donald Trump.

The principal and final function ascribed to Mashiach ben Yossef is of political and military nature. He shall wage war against the forces of evil that oppress Israel. More specifically, he will do battle against Edom, the descendants of Esau.5 Edom is the comprehensive designation of the enemies of Israel,6 and it will be crushed through the progeny of Joseph. Thus it was prophesied of old, “The House of Jacob will be a fire and the House of Joseph a flame, and the House of Esau for stubble..” (Obadiah 1:18): “the progeny of Esau shall be delivered only into the hands of the progeny of Joseph.”

This ultimate confrontation between Joseph and Esau is alluded already in the very birth of Joseph when his mother Rachel exclaimed, “G‑d has taken away my disgrace” (Genesis 30:23): with prophetic vision she foresaw that an “anointed savior” will descend from Joseph and that he will remove the disgrace of Israel. In this context she called his name “Yossef, saying ‘yossef Hashem – may G‑d add to me ben acher (lit., another son), i.e., ben acharono shel olam – one who will be at the end of the world’s time,’ from which it follows that ‘meshu’ach milchamah – one anointed for battle’ will descend from Joseph.”

The immediate results of this war will be disastrous: Mashiach ben Yossef will be killed. This is described in the prophecy of Zechariah, who says of this tragedy that “they shall mourn him as one mourns for an only child.” (Zechariah 12:10). His death will be followed by a period of great calamities. These new tribulations shall be the final test for Israel, and shortly thereafter Mashiach ben David shall come, avenge his death, resurrect him, and inaugurate the Messianic era of everlasting peace and bliss.[i]

This is who they are looking for, and this is who they will get. They have been firm and repetitive in their belief that Donald Trump is Mashiach Ben Yosef. I believe that they are right…

FOUR: Donald as Messiah

THE DONALD: Let us start with the very name. Names are usually appropriate to the person identified with the moniker. That was especially true in the Bible. It is truer in some cultures than others, but even today, we should examine the names of the powerful.

Donald – Scottish, Gaelic: World Ruler.

When he is called “The Donald” That becomes much more specific… THE WORLD RULER.

Donald calls himself Messiah…

Donald looked up at Heaven, pointed and said, “I am the Chosen One!”[ii]

A few days later, he tweeted, “Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God…”[iii]

This is accepting and reveling in titles that belong only to Jesus Christ. Donald Trump is claiming to be the Messiah. But why did Wayne Allyn Root say those things? Because they are true… The Jews in Israel are openly calling him Messiah and assigning titles like “King of Israel” and “Second Coming of God”. To the man, they are convinced that he is the one they have been waiting for…

The deception is strong… We have an arrogant, blasphemous man, who calls himself the Chosen One and revels in the titles Second Coming of God and King of Israel, who is being accepted as Messiah by the conservative Rabbis in Israel. This man commands the most powerful military in the world, he is pro-Israel, he recognized Jerusalem and the Golan, he moved the embassy, (Miracles on a par with Moses, according to the Rabbis) he kissed the wailing wall and he is known to support the building of the Third Temple. Add to that, he is offering the Peace Treaty of the Century to bring “Peace and Safety” to Israel. With all that, Christians, still buried in the nonsense taught by their highly acclaimed prophecy teachers, continue to follow him and to assert boldly that “he cannot be the Antichrist because my Bible teacher said…”

It is with deception that the AntiMessiah comes… Perhaps it is time for you to throw out those old prophecy books and see how Donald Trump actually does fit the Biblical description of the AntiMessiah… He is neither the Assyrian nor the Roman but he is the Man of Sin and the AntiMessiah…

Who Are the Bene Elohim?

Some would still prefer to believe a forced humanistic, but not so rational fairy tale than to accept the Bible as the Word of God…

I had an evidently well trained Rational Theologian arguing the Sethite theory of Genesis 6 and insisting that the Nephilim in the Bible were produced when the good men of Seth forced themselves on the wicked women of Cain and that their offspring was simply more evil than others and fear of them caused the people to exaggerate…

Numbers 13:33 “There also we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

According to him, the giants in Numbers 13:33 were just evil men and the Bible was in error and the spies were exaggerating out of fear. The Bible also lied and exaggerated the size of Og’s bed and the stature of Goliath…

I Pity the Rational Christian who has been taught to explain away the supernatural and force illogical and humanistic interpretations on Scripture.

So the “Good” sons of Seth slept with the “Evil” women of Cain and that union produced people so evil that the fear motivated people exaggerated and called them giants?

Really?

The only reason you would insist on that idea is that you refuse to accept the supernatural.

Job 1: 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. 7 The Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”

The Sons of God in Genesis 6 are the same Sons of God found in Job…

To believe that fallen angelic beings mated with human women and produced a race of giants and superheroes makes sense… but you have good human men forcing themselves on evil human women and producing the Nephilim who were so evil that the writers of Scripture exaggerated and called them giants.

First of all, if they were good, why did they take evil wives? Secondly, What would make the progeny of Seth and Cain more evil than either of the purebred races? That makes no sense at all and only a person well-schooled in rational theology could even imagine such a fairy tale…

Yet some would still prefer to believe a forced humanistic, but not so rational fairy tale than to accept the Bible as the Word of God…

Security of the Believer

There are verses that speak to the security of the believer. There are also verses that speak of losing your Salvation.

Calvin would tell me to trash, undercut, explain away or ignore every passage that speaks of losing your salvation.

Arminius would tell me to trash, undercut, explain away or ignore every passage that speaks to the security of the believer.

Having seen through the foolishness of both sides, I choose to understand that the believer is neither so secure as Calvin would have me to believe, nor on such shaky ground as Arminius would lead me to believe.

The truth is that Scripture speaks both to the security of the believer and to the very real possibility of losing your Salvation.

The same bible that quotes Jesus as saying, “No one shall pluck them out of my hand.” Says “You have been severed from Christ… you have fallen from grace.”

The same Bible that says, “you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise”, says “Do not be conceited, but fear; for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either.”

Both Calvin and Arminius chose to trash bible passages that disagreed with their preconceived theses… “This I believe, this I will prove, where is my Bible?”

The Calvinist chooses to accept Calvin as his authority and to force all Scripture to agree with Calvin’s hypothesis. The Armenian accepts Arminius as his authority and forces all Scripture to agree with Arminius’ presuppositions. The Christian says “God speaks both to the security of the believer and the possibility of losing one’s salvation…” “Is there Scripture,” he asks, “that explains how the believer, who cannot be snatched out of Christ’s hand and has been sealed by the Holy Spirit should fear and tremble lest they be severed from Jesus and fall from grace?”

Of course, there is… but both Calvinists and Armenians flatly reject all Scripture that might even possibly resolve the conflict. It seems that their hero and the founder of their sect is far more important than God, Jesus and Scripture combined…

Yet Paul’s insisted that those believers who had come to trust in their own obedience to the Law for justification, had been severed from Christ and had fallen from grace. You cannot fall from where you are not, neither can you be severed from that to which you are not attached. Nor can you pretend that one who has been severed from Christ and has fallen from grace is saved and going to Heaven.

Both Calvin and Arminius seem to have believed that the loss of salvation would be centered on sin. In this, Calvin, who insisted that one was not saved by ceasing to sin and therefore could not be lost by committing sin was correct. Arminius, who seems to have believed that one is lost every time they sin and saved again every time they repent was wrong. I am most certainly a Christian and not a Calvinist, but on this point, Calvin got it right.

Galatians 5:4 addresses a particular group of people, those who “are seeking to be justified by law”. Had they fallen from grace and been severed from Christ because of sin? No. They were now lost, because they no longer believed. The faith God had given them was removed from Christ and placed in their own ability to follow the Law.

We are saved “by grace through faith in the Son of God” We are not lost when we sin and resaved when we repent. That is unscriptural. However, if we withdraw our faith from Jesus and place that faith in anything else. The Law, our own righteousness, not eating pork, going to church on the Sabbath, Calvin, Arminius, the Pope, or Donald Trump… We are lost.

Both the Calvinist and the Arminian reject this Scriptural truth, but Christians see it, accept it and rejoice in it…

Think about it…

Undoing Babel

It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him. (Revelation 13:7)

“Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them…” —Jehovah God

Apostle or Roman Agent?

Joseph Shellim commented on my post, “Paul’s quote is pointless, clearly indicating he was a Roman agent…”

Joseph Shellim commented on my post, “Paul’s quote is pointless, clearly indicating he was a Roman agent. Everything is created by God [Gen.1/1]. Paul’s attempt to fulfill away the laws of God marks the single greaest failure in biblical history. The Romans and Christianity also failed this attempt, to the extent not a single Christian country can stand without the Hebrew laws. Even God cannot change His covenant and laws, because God is Truth.

Ps 105/8 He hath remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations; 10 And He established it unto Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant.”

To which I replied, “And you sir, are a Hell bound pagan, having rejected the Word of God.”

His is however, the logical end to the beliefs of the legalist and Judaizer… You cannot believe that Paul was an Apostle and at the same time insist on placing gentile Christians under the Law… Every Hebrew Roots believer, Legalist and Judaizer will eventually be forced to either trash their doctrine or make Paul a reprobate… There is no other honest choice…

I once had a Hebrew Roots “Pastor” send me a 4,000-word essay on why Paul was not an Apostle and it was only by a Roman Catholic plot that his books were included in the Bible… Seriously, that is the only… the very only answer that one can come up with that can possibly justify the attempt to place Christians under the law of Moses…

You cannot believe that Paul was an Apostle and his writings are the Word of God and believe that Christians are forbidden to eat pork and shellfish and that they are required to go to church on Saturday… That is an oxymoron on steroids…

But none, absolutely none of the Judaizers will accept that they are bound by the whole law. They are bound only to dietary laws and the Sabbath… The rest of the Law can and should be ignored… You cannot preach that with Paul’s Epistles in your Bible…

I wrote, “While you are enforcing Leviticus 11, why not enforce Leviticus 15? Who gave you permission to enforce one chapter and ignore the rest of the book? When you come into full compliance with all of Leviticus, I might even listen to that garbage you selectively pick out of a single chapter… You are going to insist that rules regarding food are still in force but rules concerning blood are trashed? Good luck explaining that one to God!

Leviticus 15:19 ‘When a woman has a discharge, if her discharge in her body is blood, she shall continue in her menstrual impurity for seven days; and whoever touches her shall be unclean until evening. 20 Everything also on which she lies during her menstrual impurity shall be unclean, and everything on which she sits shall be unclean. 21 Anyone who touches her bed shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. 22 Whoever touches any thing on which she sits shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. 23 Whether it be on the bed or on the thing on which she is sitting, when he touches it, he shall be unclean until evening. 24 If a man actually lies with her so that her menstrual impurity is on him, he shall be unclean seven days, and every bed on which he lies shall be unclean.

25 ‘Now if a woman has a discharge of her blood many days, not at the period of her menstrual impurity, or if she has a discharge beyond that period, all the days of her impure discharge she shall continue as though in her menstrual impurity; she is unclean. 26 Any bed on which she lies all the days of her discharge shall be to her like her bed at menstruation; and every thing on which she sits shall be unclean, like her uncleanness at that time. 27 Likewise, whoever touches them shall be unclean and shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. 28 When she becomes clean from her discharge, she shall count off for herself seven days; and afterward she will be clean. 29 Then on the eighth day she shall take for herself two turtledoves or two young pigeons and bring them in to the priest, to the doorway of the tent of meeting. 30 The priest shall offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. So the priest shall make atonement on her behalf before the Lord because of her impure discharge.’

31 “Thus you shall keep the sons of Israel separated from their uncleanness, so that they will not die in their uncleanness by their defiling My tabernacle that is among them.”

So throw out 80% of your New Testament and declare Paul a reprobate or throw out your Demon Doctrine that forces that decision down your throat…

GOD AS THE AUTHOR OF EVIL

“The way that people are misusing this verse would make God the executioner of seven million Jews under his man Hitler, and twenty million Christians under his appointed king Stalin.”

Daniel 2:21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings…

The way people rip this single verse out of context and use it in ways contrary to the record of the whole Bible is amazing… People use this verse in a way that makes God directly responsible for every evil thing done by every king who ever lived…

This verse, ignored while Obama was president, is now being used to lift up and support Trump as God’s man on earth and the savior of America and all things American…

The way that people are misusing this verse would make God the executioner of seven million Jews under his man Hitler, and twenty million Christians under his appointed king Stalin.

God complains about the Kings of Israel and says that they, not He, were to blame for the fall of Jerusalem. If He sets up every king and deposes of all the bad ones, He alone is responsible for all of the evil done by every king who ever lived…

You cannot build a doctrine or base your beliefs on a single verse ripped out of context… That is a deadly error…

This is a war. Kings are ruled and used by Satan in his attempt to overthrow Jehovah God and retain his position as god of this world…

That verse must be compared with the rest of Scripture and its meaning defined by the massive weight of Scripture that opposes the particular weird and strange interpretation that is being forced upon it by Trumpettes, Trumpites, and the other Christianesque peoples of this land…

MIXTURE: The Babylonian Gospel

The Babylonian Gospel and mixture is the only message I ever heard. Even five years ago, if you had asked me to tell you what I believed, much of what I told you would have had its roots in Baptist Denominational Distinctives, the Masonic Religion and the Great American Lie. Even after years abroad, where I was confronted by a Gospel not mixed with American Patriotism, much of what I believed was more American than Christian.

My Grandfather was a 33rd Degree Mason and a “Lifetime Deacon” at First Baptist Church in West Palm Beach, Florida. I do not know how many of the men on that board were Master Masons, but I would imagine that it was a clear majority. This was an upscale church… a church where the Rich and Famous could feel at home.

It was my Grandfather and his Masonic buddies who planned the new Sanctuary as a Greek Temple, designed and built with strict Masonic Architecture…

We would sing the right hymns. The basics of the Gospel were preached, but it was all about walking the aisle, shaking the Preacher’s hand, repeating a canned prayer and getting dunked in the ornate, marble baptistry. With “Once Saved, Always Saved,” as a core doctrine, what you did after that was relatively unimportant. A strict moral code was taught but more from the Masonic point of view than the Gospel. The thrust being that you need to live right because it is good for your country, society and your community, and living right will make you healthy, wealthy and wise.

It was always assumed that if you had walked an aisle, shaken the preacher’s hand, repeated the prayer and got dunked, you were going to Heaven… No one dared question that formula.

Some of the old men in the church had fought in World War One. Most of the adult men had fought in World War Two and or Korea. The young men were going off to Vietnam and returning, often in a box. No matter what the truth about Vietnam, Korea or any other war, if you were a Christian, you supported America, the Flag and the latest war. The most ungodly and unchristian thing a young person could do was to question America. They probably never said it but we all knew that America was the Kingdom of God and God was an American.

The Methodists could lose their salvation, but they too thought that God was an American. The Presbyterians knew that God was an American and a Presbyterian… We all could agree that to be a good American was very important and that if America did it, it was God’s will and God’s way.

On the Fourth of July, the National Guard Color Guard would march the American Flag down the Aisle and we would all stand and sing the National Anthem as they stood at attention, flags in hand… The Pride was palpable…

At Christmas, the children would perform a passion play, baby Jesus in the manger, under the Christmas Tree…

For Easter, we would hold a Sunrise Service. That was followed, at Sunday School time, by an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids and then the 11:00 Church Service where we would all sing “Hallelujah, He arose!” at the top of our lungs…

Then, I went off and became Pentecostal… I spoke in tongues, prophesied and saw real miracles… But they were still sold on the America thing, Christmas Trees and the Easter Bunny. More than that, they were frightened and legalistic to the max. I could tell how spiritual a man was by looking at his wife. If she was ugly, wore dresses to the floor, kept her head covered and wore neither jewelry nor makeup… that was a Holy and Righteous man!

The question that continually surfaced was, “If I get in an accident and I say a bad word and I die before I can repent, will I go to Hell?” Not pleasant people to be around…

Over the last twenty years, I have watched Pentecostals go through a great change. They started a rapid flight away from legalism. Unfortunately, they passed the truth going ninety miles an hour and slid right into what some have called “Sloppy Agape.” The current, approved term is Hyper-Grace. This is a politicly-correct religion… You NEVER preach on sin or call for repentance. You preach on the importance of accepting everybody and offending nobody. Scriptures to be read and sermons to be preached are carefully scrutinized. If there is any way that a verse could offend anybody, it is not read. If there is an offensive phrase or word in a sermon, it is scratched out and never spoken. Only Happy Verses and Happy sermons are allowed.

It no longer matters what you wear. As a Sailor, a lifetime ago, I saw Pole Dancers better dressed than some of the young ladies in church…

Altar-Calls are for Happy Prophecy, Blessing and Miracles, NEVER for repentance or salvation.

But still, the lie of American Patriotism pervades the American Church. You cannot be a Good Christian if you are not a strong patriot. You cannot have a cross unless it is draped with a flag…

President Trump must be from God… America and the Kingdom of God are one and the same… God is American and Jesus lounges around Heaven in red, white and blue pajamas… Surely Trump is a Prince, sent from God to save God’s Country, in her sin, and grant her time and freedom to sin some more…

I see that attitude, in posts and comments on my Facebook Page…

Jesus asked, “When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?” (Luke 18:8) I am leaning more and more to the negative reply… “No, none or very little.”

If you just go back, with a prayerful attitude, and throwing out everything you were taught, read the Book, you will find that it is very simple and straight forward… I think that you will discover that America is not the Kingdom of God but rather Babylon. Jesus is nothing like what you always thought He was, and being a Christian has nothing at all to do with walking an aisle, shaking a Preacher’s hand, repeating a little prayer and getting dunked in a baptistry…

Not even an ornate, marble baptistry…

David…
