A Faked Armageddon?

Could the AntiMessiah even fake a battle of Armageddon where he appears to defeat those whom Christians would label as “evil”?

Could the AntiMessiah even fake a battle of Armageddon where he appears to defeat those whom Christians would label as “evil”?

This morning, I listened to Gary Wayne speaking at the 2020 True Legends Conference. Gary builds an almost bullet proof case for the “Gap Theory”. His case is so strong that I would suggest that we start calling it the “Gap Doctrine.” This is the teaching that I have long held to be true… The word translated “was” by the KJV Translators in Genesis 1:2 is much better translated as “became.” There was a huge gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. This gap included a preadamic race that was destroyed by fire when Lucifer rebelled. The earth became formless and void and God remade the earth following that.

That is an argument that Gary takes almost three hours to build. I cannot prove anything here, but that is not new to me… What shook me up was when he suggested that the deception regarding the Antichrist will be so great that he even fakes an Armageddon, appearing to defeat the forces of evil in a great battle!!!

Trump and his forces seem to be working hard at building that deception… the lie which a delusion sent by God, will cause those who “have not received a love of the truth” to believe…

A Large group of Evangelicals, “United in Purpose” or “UIP” has endorsed Trump and is working to convince Christians to reelect him. “THE COVID VIRUS has been a gift from God,” began Ken Eldred, the group’s leader. “The kingdom of God advances through a series of glorious victories, cleverly disguised as disasters.”

The group is decidedly Dominionist, teaching that the church must conquer the world, by force if necessary, (think Roman Crusades). Only when we have physically established the Kingdom of God on earth… Only when Christians rule the world can Jesus return to rule the kingdom we have established for him.

This is the Doctrine of the Antichrist and he will promise to support them and to lead them to victory. They will love him for the same reasons they love Donald Trump.

Speaking of the President, DONALD TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN to change the subject from the coronavirus pandemic took a bizarre turn on Thursday, as the president paused during a speech at a Ford Motor Company plant in Michigan to praise the “good bloodlines” of the family descended from the firm’s founder, Henry Ford, a notorious anti-Semite and favorite of Adolf Hitler.

In an apparent ad-lib, Trump looked up from his prepared remarks — which praised the firm for teaming up with General Electric to produce ventilators and face shields for medical workers — to observe that Henry Ford’s descendants, like the current chairman, Bill Ford, who had introduced the president, have “good blood.”

Yes, read your history… Henry Ford was one of Adolf Hitler’s idols…

To the Christian who does not know the Scriptures, the AntiMessiah is going to look like Jesus Christ himself… The deception is being laid now. They have been working on the deception for centuries. It is getting deeper and more believable by the hour.

Yes, the AntiMessiah will come to save us from the godless Left. He will preach morality and promise wealth, health, and peace. He will be so good that Christians will gladly overlook his vanity, his profanity, and his blasphemy… “My God!” they will exclaim, “He wants to protect the Church… he hates Liberals and Atheists and he is going to save Babylon, my job, my position and my stuff!!! Why wouldn’t I follow him?”

That I knew… but even faking a Battle of Armageddon? That is a new one! Somehow, I cannot help but believe him…

When Scripture Contradicts Your Doctrine…

To perform Eisegesis, you must stick with what you already believe… No matter what the cost.

I am constantly confronted by people who are horrified that they have found (or worse, I have shown them) Scripture that contradicts and debunks their favorite doctrine…

Don’t panic! There is an answer! It is called…

EISEGESIS

This is a skill taught in the finest of Christian colleges and seminaries. Denominations have used it to “prove” their own distinctives… It is, however, a simple concept and quite easy to grasp…

To perform Eisegesis, you must stick with what you already believe… No matter what the cost. You are right and you know it. The Scripture is right but misunderstood. You go to the Bible with great determination and you find verses that prove that you are right and the common understanding of the passage in question is obviously wrong.

Having found at least two verses that prove that you are right, you must begin to think. (That is the really hard part.) If the painful and contradictory verse does not mean what it says, what does it mean? You must, by twisting logic and dumping common sense, come up with an explanation as to “what it really means.”

The Calvinists are masters at this. They know that Calvin was right and no Scripture that even hints at free will, can really mean what it really says… Problem is, there are a lot of those verses! They came up with a simple solution… redefine the words. Whosoever means Elect. All means Elect. None means Elect. Once you understand the concept, it is easy… Of course, Calvin was right!!!

Then, there is Romans seven. You know that Paul was perfect and could not sin… In Romans seven, Paul says that he sins… You spend months trying to explain why Paul could not have meant that he was a sinner when he said that he was a sinner. You come up with a five thousand word essay explaining how Paul did not mean that he was a sinner when he said that he was a sinner. Yea! You did it… And then, in a reply, someone quotes Paul again… “The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.” (1 Timothy 1:15) Woops, this calls for another 5,000 word thesis… after all, we know that Paul was not a sinner.

When we have again proven that Paul was mistaken and that he really meant to use the past tense, that same pesky commentator comes up with another one… “If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10) He notes that if Paul were to say that he was not a sinner, he would be calling God a liar…

What to do now? Simple, just keep at it… With good eisegetical skills you can prove anything…

THE DEATH OF AMERICAN CHRISTIAN ARROGANCE

For years, I have wept over the self-inflated pride and egotism of American pastors and their deceived little sheep…

In the first weeks of 2020 I sat down with a Pastor and tried to tell him what was coming. Some of the Scripture I shared with him actually shocked him. If he had ever read those words, he had skipped over them, certain that they did not apply to him, his church or America. He argued with me, actually saying that we would never face the kind of persecution faced by Christians in the Middle East and Africa. They were, he maintained, suffering for thousands of years of sins. America would never see that kind of persecution.

Just a few weeks later, America, along with the rest of the world, was locked down by the Corona Virus. The judgment of God had begun and, surprise, surprise, neither America nor American Christians were exempt. That Pastor found his church closed and himself holding drive in services in the parking lot. Imagine that!

For years, I have fought against this American Christian Arrogance… For years, I have warned of judgment coming to America. For years, I  have wept over the self-inflated pride and egotism of  American pastors and their deceived little sheep…

Thirty years ago I was a missionary, working in the backwoods of a third world nation. I heard, even then, what they thought of the United States and the American Christian. It was not pretty. The American Government used money and might to blackmail their government into doing things that were very bad for their own people. The American churches would come on Short Term Mission Trips and teach things that did not work there. Name it, claim it does not work in a third-world jungle. These Christians would promise to send support and money for the Christians there… They never, ever, sent a penny.

The Church in the third-world faces death, pain and suffering every day. Miracles come in little packages… a couple of eggs in the hen’s nest or a neighbor sharing a little meat from an animal he butchered because he could not feed it. There were miracles… lots of healings! I saw my own son’s legs move and his feet reform in front of my eyes as God healed his severely clubbed feet. Demon’s fled and people were freed… but Christians we prayed for suffered and died. The idea of claiming a new car or a house in a gated community was inconceivable.

When we returned to the States, I was overwhelmed by the arrogance and the inflated egos in the church. A Pastor in a working class church, full of people making it day to day, called out his whole congregation to admire the new Lincoln SUV “the Lord” had bought him!!! He spent at least ten, sometimes twenty minutes every Sunday morning talking about tithing… It was the sacrifice of these poor people that paid for that car… but he never mentioned that.

Then, there is the idea that we can manipulate God… God, according to the American church, exists to make them rich, healthy, and happy. They are at ease in Babylon. Somehow, we can be totally ignorant of Scripture and history, existing in a happy bubble. The overwhelming belief in both Pentecostal and Charismatic churches is that by cherry-picking a few happy-verses out of the Bible and quoting them over and over, and over, we can build our faith and that faith can force God to do what God never wanted, planned or even thought of doing.

The United States has been in a moral and spiritual freefall for as long as I can remember. The answer was to quote 2 Chronicles 7:14 ten billion times. We do not actually have to repent or change our ways… No, all we have to do is quote that verse enough times and God will be forced to save America. What utter and absolute foolishness!

If we ever speak of the sufferings of Paul or his death, or the death of Stephen, Peter, James and the rest… If we were to mention Timothy’s stomach troubles… that would ruin everybody’s faith and they would stop making so much money, and the offerings would decrease… If we talked about the Judgment of an angry God or taught on the destruction of Jerusalem… people would abandon our church altogether and go find a pastor more willing to tickle their ears…

Those days are over. Some American pastors will repent and weep over their error. Most will burn in Hell, cursing God for all eternity for not bending to their will and doing what they told him to do… “After all, God, I quoted that verse 1,572 times… Why didn’t you do what that verse said you would?” I can hear God laughing now… The absolute arrogance of one who pulls verses out of context, ignoring 98% of the Bible and insisting that God must perform “according to his Word.” He is performing exactly according to his Word… It is not his fault that you never read it and had no idea what it really said.

May God have mercy on the American Pastor and the American Christian… Perhaps COVID-19 and the coming judgments will prove God’s mercy by bringing them to their knees.

David…

And the Rapture is on…

Tribulation is a promise of God, straight from the lips of Jesus Christ!!

In Matthew 24, the Disciples asked Jesus “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” In that context, speaking of the signs of His coming and of the end of the age… The day in which we live, Jesus answered them, “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.

Tribulation is a promise of God, straight from the lips of Jesus Christ!

Find me one Scripture, any Scripture that says that the rapture will be pretrib. Pretribbers list a hundred or more Scriptures together (not one of which says that the Rapture is pretrib) and tell us that, if we could read between the lines, we would understand that, although God never actually said that the Rapture happens before the Tribulation, that is only an oversight and He really meant to…

Yes, I saw the movie… The Rapture must happen before any American Christians have to suffer!!!

Wishful Thinking Does Not Make Good Doctrine…

The PreTrib Rapture is the biggest, and quite likely the deadliest Hoax ever to be foisted on the Church of Jesus Christ… Those who have believed it, are not watching because there is, in their minds, nothing to watch for… We are going to be out of here before any of that stuff the Bible takes so much trouble to warn us about happens anyway! If we aren’t going to be here, why watch?

This has opened the Pretribbers to deception, delusion and the fires of Hell…

2 Thessalonians 2:1 NOW CONCERNING the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM: We ask you, brothers, 2 not to be easily upset in mind or troubled, either by a spirit or by a message or by a letter as if from us, alleging that the Day of the Lord has come. 3 DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU in any way. FOR THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS the apostasy comes first and THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED, the son of destruction. 4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s sanctuary, publicizing that he himself is God.


NOW CONCERNING… OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM… DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU… FOR THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS… THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED, the son of destruction. 4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s sanctuary, publicizing that he himself is God.


…Are you deceived?

…Are you a deceiver?

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

The Destruction of Edom

“Like the Egyptian Tank Commanders who went before them, they will be totally and absolutely confused…”

Does anybody remember the Six Day War? If you are too young, you need to read up on it. That war was a miracle straight from God. The entire Arab World, Islam en masse,  lined up on Israel’s borders.

The night before the attack, the Egyptian Air Force threw an anticipatory victory party… While they were partying, Israel destroyed all their planes, as they sat unguarded on the tarmac…

Egypt’s tank commanders and a thousand tanks stood in the hills overlooking Israel. When the time to attack came, they stood still… they had lost radio contact with headquarters, and they had no idea what to do…

When it was over, Israel was twice the size it had been just a week before and soldiers stood and wept at the wailing wall in a united Jerusalem.

When you hear the media speak of “Israeli Occupied Territory,” understand that they are speaking of the land the Arabs lost in a war they started…

I want you to think about that because it is a foreshadow of things to come. This time, Russia and China and North Korea are lining up with the Arabs against Israel and America. This looks more serious than the Six Day War. This could be the end of Israel…

BUT GOD….

You will advance against My people Israel like a cloud covering the land. It will happen in the last days, Gog, that I will bring you against My land so that the nations may know Me, when I show Myself holy through you in their sight.


Ezekiel 38: 16 (HCSB)

This war will be like the Six Day War on Steroids…

God lists the Nations now aligned against Israel… Russia and Turkey and Syria and Iran. Scripture speaks of the war that is to come… When you finish reading Ezekiel 38, you can reach only one conclusion…

God says that He himself will destroy them in the mountains of Israel… He will bring an earthquake and a hailstorm… When the survivors stand up, like the Egyptian Tank Commanders who went before them, they will be totally and absolutely confused. In their confusion, they will take up battle, one against the other… There will be no one left… No one…

Obadiah tells us that Esau will have no (zero) descendants…

For the first time in History the Borders of Israel will match the description given by God… and the world will, for a moment, understand that it is the God of Israel who has done this thing…

The Antichrist will offer his treaty and the survivors of Edom will sign anything… absolutely anything…

Read the Scripture. Then, read the news. Then, read the Scripture again…

Think about it…

The Death of Faith

“Let God be true and every man a liar…”

Recently, I have seen books and read articles by seminary trained men who have educated themselves out of belief in the Gospel. Men who, having entered seminary as true believers came to the point, based on the things they had studied, where they no longer believed. There is a difference between seeking an education and seeking truth, between seeking knowledge and seeking wisdom. Those who seek knowledge for its own sake, or worse yet, to gain degrees, acclaim and the acceptance of their peers, will often find themselves educated to the point of disbelief. There is no chance that one seeking truth and wisdom should ever come to such an end.

There is one central truth and that is that God is Truth. Both Jesus and the written Word are truth and the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth. If the facts that one learns seem to contradict that truth, they are either lies misrepresented as truth or partial truths twisted by the enemy of your soul and made to appear as if they oppose the Truth of God. There are no facts that oppose the Truth of God, only misinterpretations of either the “facts” or the Word of God.

For the sake of this article, let me site two examples that have led to the loss of faith in some. First, we will discuss the massive evidence that there was a pre-adamic civilization  and secondly that there are stories of the virgin birth that predate both Judaism and Christianity. These ideas have led men and women to renounce the Gospel. Perhaps these things have bothered you or caused you to question God and the Bible.

There are large volumes that have been written which address both of these quandaries. If it interests you, let me suggest that you study further. For the sake of this short article, allow me to answer the objections in the shortest manner possible.

Some, who insist on a literal six-day creation, have suggested that all of the evidence that would seem to support a Pre-Adamic civilization may be understood in the light of the flood of Noah. They suggest that stratified layers are not the result of millions of years of build up but that they were formed during the runoff from the flood as larger and heavier objects sank deeper into the mud.  This is possible and satisfies some but certainly not all students of these things. There seem to be, in fact, a good number of exceptions which cannot be properly explained by a global inundation.

So, what if science should prove that a pre-adamic civilization did exist? What does that do to your faith? The answers to those questions, respectively, should be, “So what?” and “Nothing.”

 Genesis starts with these words, “ In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth WAS without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” (Emphasis mine.)

The little word “WAS” in that passage is troublesome because it has caused a lot of confusion, has carried over into most translations and it is wrong…

The word translated “was” here is הָיָה (hayah). Hayah is a verb. It appears 76 times in the King James Version. It is translated, [to be, become, come to pass, exist, happen, fall out]. It is translated as “WAS” exactly once, in Genesis 1:2. It is an obvious mistranslation, but it is so popular that no other translations have dared to correct the error. It is never, with this single exception, translated “WAS.”

The verse, by all rights, should read, “And the earth BECAME without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

If you understand that one simple fact, no argument concerning the existence of a pre-adamic race could ever shake your faith…

Next, there have been stories of the virgin birth of gods and god men since the beginning and they predate the story of Jesus by thousands of years.

This fact has led some to believe that the early Christians simply mixed old pagan stories with the Hebrew Scriptures and came up with a new version of an old story… This has caused some to lose their faith.

Yet there remains a much better way to resolve the conflict. One must first concede that the Bible does not give us every detail of every story. We do not have full architectural plans for the Ark, and we do not have a list of names of all those who died in the flood. We just are not told everything and, practically speaking, we would not want to know every little detail.

What we do know is that God had a talk with Satan after the fall and told him of his future and the curse that now hung over his head. Scripture gives us a hint as to the content of that conversation, but it is certain that not every detail and every word is recorded.

In Genesis three, we read these words.

14 So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,

“Cursed are you above all livestock
    and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
    and you will eat dust
    all the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
    and you will strike his heel.”

We also know, from the book of Job and others, that Satan continued to have access to Heaven and conversations with God. What was contained in those discussions we cannot even guess, but God’s future plans were certainly mentioned. Satan knew part but not all. That he knew that a virgin would conceive and give birth to the Son of God is certain because it shows up repeatedly in the old stories of the gods…

First, Satan told men that in her sin, Eve had recreated herself as a “Free Woman.” As such, they should consider Eve to be Virgin Born… She, according to the Devil, created herself. Then, the pagan gods were virgin born and the pagan goddesses were all “Virgin Born” and “Virgin Mothers.” But the stories are crude and ugly… nothing at all like the story of Mary and Jesus… The Bible story just sounds like something that God would do. The pagan stories all sound like the Devil wrote them, and he did.

Look at Isis. Isis fell in love with her brother, Osiris, and married him. Before they could have sex, their jealous brother Set, killed Osiris and cut him into fourteen pieces and threw him into the Nile. Isis searched and found everything but his private parts which had been eaten by a fish. She sewed him back together, manufactured the world’s first dildo, sat on it and impregnated herself, making her the virgin mother of the god Horus. Horus was her son. He was also Osiris reincarnated. Isis married him when he was twelve years old. Horus was then god, the son of god and the husband, brother, and son of Isis…

I guess that was the best story Satan could think up. It made him, instead of Yahweh, the father of a virgin born god… Satan always wants to mimic God…

Compare that crude and ugly story with the story of Mary and Jesus in the Bible. Even though the story of Isis and Horus came first, it is obvious, to the Christian, that one story is demonic and the other heavenly. Which one came first is insignificant.

The same is true with every conflict. We must make the extrabiblical material fit the Bible and not the other way around. Most conflicts can be easily resolved. If there remain any conflicts that cannot be resolved, we must have the faith to believe that the conflict is based, not in fact, but in our own ignorance… We must always start out with the assumption that God and his Word are correct.

“Let God be true and every man a liar…”

On Toyshtan and America

There is a nation called Toyshtan. The people in Toyshtan follow a god named Albert. Their religion is known as Toyshtaner…

IMAGINE:

There is a nation called Toyshtan. The people in Toyshtan follow a god named Albert. Their religion is known as Toyshtaner. Their lives center around toys, or the lack of them.

Albert, through his Prophet, Muttnjeff, has informed all his followers that it is their duty to kill all nonbelievers…

Unfortunately, the religion of Toyshtaner is divided into two groups, the Yesters and the Nosters. The Yesters follow a prophet who has told them that they should own all the toys they can afford but they are never to play with them. The Nosters follow a different prophet and he has forbidden them to own or even gaze on toys. The possession of toys, he says, is a sin worthy of death…

For many years now, a civil war has raged on. Each group fully convinced that members of the other group are nonbelievers, worthy of death. They have managed to kill off about eighty percent of their population. Survivors huddle in basements under the ruins of what once must have been beautiful homes. They are refugees in their own land.

But, there is a beautiful land across the sea called America… It is, by all reports, Heaven on earth… If you could just get to America, you would have work and money and beautiful houses. Everybody, Yesters and Nosters alike wants to go to America…

America is really evil though, they make, sell, buy and even play with toys. Not only that, they have sent Toynaries who have brought toys to the children of Toyshtan. They have even built playgrounds and taught the children how to play!!! Most of the Toynaries have been killed or chased back home and all of their converts have been killed or forced to flee Toyshtan… Some of them have even gone to America!!!

The Yesters and the Nosters have come to an agreement that they will work really hard to get as many Toyshtaners as possible into America. They have a lot of friends in the United Nations who can pressure the American President.

They have promised to live in Toyshtaner communities in America, and never to become like the Americans and certainly, never to play with toys…

The Toyshtaners in America have followed their own agreement. They have bought up hundreds of blocks in American cities and chased all the Americans out… Still Albert keeps telling the Yesters to kill the Nosters, the Nosters to kill the Yesters and all of the Toyshtaners to kill Americans…

And so, they do…

Imagine that…

THE DONALD

“Nay, Ivan,” said I kindly, “I know no such word as cruelty although I do confess that right seems harsh at times, but thou wert born to serve and I to command…”

Trump and the making of an Antichrist

 A RADIO PRESENTATION OF END TIME THINKER

 “Nay, Ivan,” said I kindly, “I know no such word as cruelty although I do confess that right seems harsh at times, but thou wert born to serve and I to command…”

 ON BARON TRUMP’S MARVELOUS UNDERGROUND JOURNEY and THE LAST PRESIDENT, BY INGERSOLL LOCKWOOD

 I became intrigued when I saw the first write-ups on these books. When Fox News did a story on them, I bought them on Kindle. I have now read both books. Let me share with you what I have learned.

Even Skimming “THE LAST PRESIDENT”, you cannot miss the note on the title page that reads,

“THIS IS A WORK OF MEMETIC OCCULTISM”

(This note may have been added to the current edition)

MEMETICS is defined as, “a study of information based on an analogy with Darwinian evolution. Proponents describe memetics as an approach to evolutionary models of cultural information transfer.”

Thus, Memetic Occultism is mixing Darwinian theory with Occultic Practice as a way of predicting the future. I am glad that I saw that before I started reading “Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey.” Had I not seen that, I might have passed off the Baron Trump book as a wild fairy tale… simply children’s literature…

BARON TRUMP’S MARVELOUS UNDERGROUND JOURNEY is passed off as children’s literature but it would be a hard sell today. It is the first-person account of a magical journey taken by a boy I would imagine to be in about the sixth grade. However, although the story is age appropriate for sixth graders, today’s High School Graduates would have a difficult time reading and comprehending it… This is due, I am certain, to the intentional collapse of the American Education System… Any Sixth Grader, in 1890 could have read this…

Secondly, Darwinian Theory, Pagan Religion and Occultic Works, form the basis for the entire story. I do not know how much of that would have been absorbed by a child, but to an adult who has been forewarned, it is only too obvious.

 

Thirdly, and lastly, ittle Barron Trump has the egocentric personality that only a Trump could muster. This little aristocratic brat is Donald Trump on steroids… Everything he does and says echoes Donald Trump. This boy is everything I could picture in Donald Trump as a sixth-grader… He has the attitude down. You would honestly think that the author went to elementary school with the President! I tell you the truth!

THE LAST PRESIDENT:

The remarkable thing about the book called “1900 or THE LAST PRESIDENT,” is that it immediately follows the book on the adventures of Baron Trump. The only standout might be the mention of the name Pence, the name of our Vice-President, as a member of the last President’s Cabinet… but then, as Secretary of Agriculture. The man is only listed and takes no part in the story.

President Bryan is a young Populist, a Democrat and probably a closet communist. This is really a short story that centers on the politics and promises of the 1890s. We get to look at what the President and the congress do, but we get little to no insight into their persons or their lives. The book uses the aforementioned Memetic Occultism to predict that the Republic would collapse in the year 1900. Evidently, there was a good deal of speculation that the world, or at least the United States would collapse in the year 1900… something that most of us can relate to a century later.

It is pretty obvious that Mr. Lockwood was a wealthy Republican. As an Occultist, he firmly believed in the “Divine Right” of Kings. The heroes in his books are snobbish aristocrats and wealthy businessman. The bad guys in THE LAST PRESIDENT, are Democrats and socialists… it is they who bring an end to the Republic in his story. The Last President, it turns out, is much more like Obama than Donald Trump.

So, what stands out here?

Ingersoll Lockwood:

  • Was an Occultist.
  • Believed in Darwinian Evolution
  • Combined Occultism and Evolution in an attempt to tell the future.
  • Failed Miserably, as the Republic did not die in 1900.
  • Taught Magic and Evolution to children through his Children’s Books.
  • Was an Aristocrat and a Republican.
  • Heard from Lucifer in ways he never understood.
  • Telegraphed the Devil’s plans more than a hundred years into the future…

Little Barron Trump:

  • Was the perfect picture of Donald Trump as a Middle Schooler.
  • Was self-absorbed, Ego-centric, wealthy and aristocratic.
  • Had a huge connection with Russia and Russians, having many connections among the rich and powerful there. Much of the story takes place in Russia.

Favorite quote: Let me set this up. Little Baron Trump, was going into dangerous territory in Northern Russia. His driver had signed on for a hundred miles and has gone that far. Little Lord Trump has told him that he will pay him double if he continues but will have him beaten by the magistrates and sent home with no money if he refuses… The poor fellow is complaining but little Trump silences him and says,

“Nay, Ivan,” said I kindly, “I know no such word as cruelty although I do confess that right seems harsh at times, but thou wert born to serve and I to command. Providence hath made thee poor and me rich. Do thy duty, and thou wilt find me just and considerate. Disobey me, and thou wilt find that this short arm may be stretched from Ilitch to Petersburg.” (The man lived in Ilitch and the Czar and other friends of Trump lived in Petersburg.)

I stand amazed at the likeness of attitude in Little Barron Trump and Donald Trump. Little Baron Trump’s fascination with and connections in Russia are amazing, considering the present-day connections between the President and Russia.

 

To follow that up with a book called “THE LAST PRESIDENT,” seems outside the realm of coincidence. It seems like the Devil was using this man who actively sought his knowledge to send a message to us… I take out of this that Donald Trump being President in this last decade of human history is not chance but the fulfillment of a plan hatched in Hell and known in Heaven a very long time ago…

I think that strong and biblically sound Christians should read these books. I am convinced that Satan shared his future plans with this man through his occultic works… Weak Christians may lose their faith reading these books… If you don’t know who you are in Jesus and / or you are not grounded in the Word of God… DO NOT READ THESE BOOKS!

 From fiction to fact

 I have started with fiction, but I shall now move to fact. I titled this show “THE DONALD,

Trump and the making of an Antichrist” Let us be clear of two things here:

  1. I am not saying that Donald Trump is the Antichrist.
  2. I am saying that history, prophecy and current events would present him as a logical candidate for the position.

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 more true in some cultures than others, but even today, we should examine the names of the powerful…

Donald is Scottish Gaelic for World Ruler.

WORLD RULER

Not everyone named Donald will be a world ruler, but when a man named Donald becomes a world ruler, one might take notice….

Then, in particular with Donald Trump, we have a strange title that has been used for many years and in many places to identify Donald Trump… THE DONALD.

 The word “the” placed in front of a noun makes that noun singular, one of a kind and separate. Even if you are not a grammar major, you understand the difference between Donald and The Donald… The Donald indicates that he is different, set apart, or one of a kind.

Put that together with the clear meaning of the word Donald, and it makes a huge difference!

We go from “World Ruler” to “The World Ruler…” Can you hear the difference there?

Many men have been world rulers but only Nimrod and the coming Antichrist can claim the title of “The World Ruler”

Let us speak of ANTICHRIST AS MASHIACH

In the Christian world, we are expecting the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The Jews are expecting two Messiahs, Mashiach ben David and Mashiach ben Yossef. The Jewish descriptions of the two Messiahs match, exactly, the description of the Antichrist and the False Prophet in Christian writings and Scripture.

The very word “Christ” is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word Messiah. Therefore, it is quite valid to write the title Antichrist as Antimessiah… it is the same exact word.

In Jewish thought, the two Messiahs work together to bring the whole world into subjection to Israel and to Yahweh. It is a very big part of the Jewish story that one of the two Mashiachs will be killed and resurrected by the other… Strange but true. Scripture speaks of the Antichrist as being wounded in the head with a fatal blow yet living… How can you miss the connection?

The Jews do not accept the Christian interpretation of the two distinctly different descriptions of the Messiah found in Zechariah. Christians see one Messiah coming twice, the first time as the suffering servant and the second time as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The Jews see two different men, one the suffering servant and the other the Great King. By the way, they see them as very human, not God at all… According to Jewish tradition, after their conquest of the world, both of them will grow old and die in Jerusalem.

“Jewish tradition speaks of two redeemers, each one called Mashiach. Both are involved in ushering in the Messianic era. They are Mashiach ben David and Mashiach ben Yossef.

‘The term Mashiach unqualified always refers to Mashiach ben David (Mashiach the descendant of David) of the tribe of Judah. He is the actual (final) redeemer who shall rule in the Messianic age. All that was said in our text relates to him.

‘Mashiach ben Yossef (Mashiach the descendant of Joseph) of the tribe of Ephraim (son of Joseph), is also referred to as Mashiach ben Ephrayim, Mashiach the descendant of Ephraim. He will come first, before the final redeemer, and later will serve as his viceroy.

‘The essential task of Mashiach ben Yossef is to act as precursor to Mashiach ben David: he will prepare the world for the coming of the final redeemer…

‘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. Edom is the comprehensive designation of the enemies of Israel, 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.’” (Chabad.org)

Please note, in many Jewish sources, Mashiach ben Yossef is murdered but resurrected by Mashiach ben David and that is how the Jews recognize him as their Mashiach.

When the Rabbis in Israel say that Trump is preparing the way for the Mashiach, they are saying that Trump is, in their opinion, Mashiach Ben Yossef.

“Ben Yossef is from Ephraim. In Ezekiel 37:15-28 God had Ezekiel explain that the northern and southern kingdoms (called Ephraim and Judah) would one day be reunited into one nation again with David as their king. Therefore, Ephraim does not symbolize some modern entity or nation, but represents the 10 tribes of Israel who rebelled after the death of King Solomon and formed the northern kingdom. They were conquered by and absorbed into Assyria about 720 BC. This prophecy began its fulfillment in the re-birth of Israel in 1948 and will be completed in Israel’s Kingdom Age, known as the Millennium.” (gracethrufaith.com)

It is more than possible that Donald Trump is from one of the ten lost tribes, known collectively as Ephraim.

Could Trump be an Antichrist and the one who prepares the way for the Antichrist or could the Jews be wrong again and Mashiach Ben Yosef morph into Mashiach Ben David or “The AntiMessiah,” against their will? I believe that either of those things is very possible.

Time is right for the AntiMessiah…

In an earlier show I interviewed Doug Krieger. Doug believes that the United States is the economic and national Babylon of end times prophecy. I believed that before he said so and he has added many facts and Scriptures in support of that belief. He also believes that the Antichrist will rise out of the United States. He presents a very strong case for that and I must and do agree that that is the most likely scenario.

But the thing that Doug brings into the discussion that is the most amazing, if not the most controversial is his timing.

  1. Doug says that we are in the year 5,993 Post Adam… That would place us seven years from the return of Christ and the start of the Millennial Reign of Christ.
  2. Doug points out that we are in the seventh year of the Oracle of Damascus. God works in sevens and the conclusion of that war and the destruction of Damascus should be accomplished within the year.

Isaiah 17:1 17 The oracle concerning Damascus.

“Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city
And will become a fallen ruin.
2 “The cities of Aroer are forsaken;
They will be for flocks [c]to lie down in,
And there will be no one to frighten them.
3 “The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
And sovereignty from Damascus
And the remnant of Aram;
They will be like the glory of the sons of Israel,”
Declares the Lord of hosts.

Doug did not note the fact, but I cannot read that passage without a phrase in verse 3 jumping out at me… “And sovereignty from Damascus.”

When President Assad is killed or removed, and sovereignty is removed from Damascus, we will know that the Oracle has been accomplished in its fulness.

 What is important about that? It is the Oracle… the complete and utter destruction of Damascus and the removal of sovereignty from Damascus that brings in the “Treaty of Death and Hell,” the seven-year treaty, forced by the Antichrist. When Damascus falls and the treaty with many is signed… the Antichrist will be revealed…

  1. Trump is the one who moved the first Embassy to Jerusalem.
  2. Trump is the one who first recognized Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel.
  3. The Train Station in the new Embassy District was renamed the “Donald Trump Station.”
  4. The entire suburb where the Embassy sits is now called after Donald Trump.
  5. A new shopping mall has been named after our President.
  6. The Rabbis in Israel have openly identified Trump as Mashiach Ben Yosef.
  7. Trump is the only individual in the world, at this moment, who has both the will and the ability to enforce a treaty that restores Israel to its full boundaries and borders as laid out in the Torah and the only one able to enforce such a treaty.
  8. If this is the year 5,993 Post Adam, (or even close) we are out of time.
  9. If the final fall of Damascus occurs in this year, it would be next year, at the latest when Antichrist forces the treaty on the world.
  10. Whether you think it is from God or from the Devil, with God’s permission, you must concede that Trump has supernatural help…

I believe that Trump, if not the Antichrist himself, is indeed the one who will prepare the way for the AntiMessiah and force the seven year treaty of Death and Hell on the world..

Even if you cannot believe that, I would most strongly encourage you to keep your mind open, keep your eyes on The Donald, and, most of all, THINK!
