Jesus Christ Or Anti Christ, Who Will You Serve?
Dear saints of the LORD the army of Jesus Christ. I would like to present to you for your consideration what I believe the LORD is teaching me about the present doctrines of the manifestation of the anti Christ. Over the passed several hundred years the theologians and bible scholars in their zeal to get GODS people interested in the kingdom of GOD, have ran out ahead of GODs timing concerning end times revelation. The LORD does say though Isaiah 43:19 "Behold I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it?" In the history of Israels association with her prophets there seemed to be a multitude of prophets that she surrounded her self with, that spoke to her things that suited her religious life and traditions. When the LORD GOD would send a prophet or two either to warn them of judgment for sins or wanted to do a new thing they were so entrenched in traditional teaching passed down from their scribes and religious leaders that they believed these prophets and there message was false. And to their sorrow they severely mistreated these sent ones, and bringing upon them selves they’re own destruction.
History is repeating it self in this present day traditional church. Human nature in its worldly identification will go with the flow. If every one is going that way it must be the way to go after all, there is a well-trodden path from those that have gone before us. Mt. 7:13 Jesus instructs us."For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many go there at. Enter ye in to the straight gate, and narrow is the way unto life and few there be that find it." There is a multitude of voices out in Christiandom and now in 1999 I’m throwing my hat in to the webring. We are all looking to those that have similar understanding. For my self I continually cry out to the Spirit of Truth to hear what the Spirit of Jesus is saying. So as not to walk this path way blindly, the condition of the heart is very important, Jerm.17: 9 say, "The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it." Well you might say I have a new heart I have been born again. Yes your right but you also have a heart that is the spirit of your mind or soul. If this is not totally subject to the WORD of GOD an washed with the word and purged with fire (trials & testing) it will remain in darkness shutting out the light of the Holy Spirit that dwells with in your spirit. I said all that to make a statement. There is a dark side to all of us even after we are born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. This is why we see so many of our brothers and sisters stumbling into sin and why so many do not see were they’re walking.
Jesus says in Mt.13: 14&15"And in them is fulfilled in Isaiah, which says, by hearing you shall hear and shall not understand, and seeing you shall not see and shall not perceive. For this peoples heart (mind) is waxed gross, and there ears are dull of hearing and their eyes THEY have closed, lest at any time they should see with there eyes and hear with there ears and should be converted, and I should heal them." Sounds like they don’t want to change their minds. We would rather fight any thing we are not used to. I’m a creature of habit I don’t like change especially when it touches my comfort zone.
I believe we can all agree that life around us is different, the world
and its inhabitants. Jesus spoke of these times and gave us
warning to watch and pray to escape all these things that are coming upon
the earth. Many are looking and preaching more on the anti Christ
than trying to show forth Jesus Christ. I bet they would not know
either one of them even if they fell over them.
Today we need to let Jesus in us walk out the word of GOD through experience so we are not being deceived by the dead letter of the law. For these will crucify Jesus again as He comes in His chosen to lead His people out of the Eypgt of bondage. I am totally convinced that Jesus has raised up deliverers in this last of the last days. Obaddiah 1:21 says, "And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the LORDS."
Jesus is coming in Spirit to be revealed in this body of over comers.
In order to bring in something new there has to be a discarding of the
old. In my previous letter I wrote about the persecution of the (I
C) institutional church.
I would share with you a dream I had in 93. I was standing beside Jesus and another man was to our left. We were looking at a brick wall.(bricks represent man made doctrines) And Jesus walked up to the wall and pulled a support beam away from it causing it to fall. The man to my left went running to the wall trying to keep it from falling all the while shouting GOD told me GOD told me. What is being portrayed here is, Jesus is going to knock out any support for false doctrine. It’s all going to be brought under the magnifying fire of the ALMIGHTY GOD.
With Jesus first coming the condition of the world and church were similar. Lk.13: 1&5. The Galilaeans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. This represents government distroying or interfering in religious activity. V2 Jesus said suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans because they suffered such things? I tell nay, but except you repent, you shall all like wise perish. Jesus is talking to his own people. V4&5 He declares the same thing about the unsaved people of the world. We are exhorted to watch and pray so we can escape what is coming upon the earth. This is the day when we need to make time for the LORD. We need through the Holy Spirit to over come the world before the world over comes us with all of its sorrows and plagues.
Is there a counterfeit spirit in the church? Lets look at Rev.6: 2 "And I saw a White horse; and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him; and he went forth conquering and to conquer." The speculation among bible scholars is that this is Jesus. I believe that this is Satan. He has only one crown and the bow he holds is a bow of deceit Ps 78; 58. The white horse cauld be the worldly or I.C. Church. Deception is the main weapon of satan besides guilt and fear. The one on the white horse in Rev. 6 is a far cry from the description of Jesus In Rev. 19: 11.
I would like to share with you what I believe about the doctrine of
the anti Christ. Mt.24: 4&5. Jesus said "Take heed that
no man deceive you"v5. "For many shall come in my name saying, I
am Christ; and shall deceive many." The angles of light standing
in the pulpit saying all the right things that Jesus is the Christ and
proclaiming twisted doctrines which Peter said in 2 Peter 3: 15&16
"they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other
scriptures, unto their own destruction." It is a sad thing that many
are deceived and are deceiving others. Then in Mt.24: 23&24 Jesus
says, "then if any man shall say unto you, Lo here is Christ, or there,
believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets,
and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch, that If it were possible,
they shall deceive the very elect." Satan counterfeits every thing
GOD does. I believe his purpose is to bring about confusion (Babel)
and discouragement which in turn undermines faith. Where there is
the counterfeit you need to search for the real thing. Jesus said
"If it were possible, they should deceive the very elect." This statement
or warning should not be taken lightly in this day that we have entered
into (The day of the LORDS vengeance) it could very well mean our survival.
Bible schools of different denominations teach their adherents their particular
brand of doctrine and they are only excepted in their own pulpits.
Is Christ divided? Is this the church He died for? Jesus is
going to separate the sheep from the goats and will have a unified body
here on earth. The devil has done a good job of dividing and deceiving
a large segment of the church in one area or another to which you could
say he has set up his throne in the midst of it. In 2 Thess.2: 4
Paul writes, speaking of the anti Christ. "Who apposseth and exalteth himself
above all that is called GOD, or that is worshipped, so that he as GOD
sitteth in the temple of GOD, showing himself that he is GOD." The church
at large is looking to see with the natural eye a physical temple built
on the old site of the temple mount in Israel and looking for a Anti Christ
person to come and commit some sort of an abomination and to rule the world.
We are a spiritual temple and supposed to dwell in a heavenly Jerusalem.
Is there an anti christ in your life bringing defiled sacrifices in Gods
Any organization or individual that is not living by faith but by the world mentality will follow the wrong voice. In Jn.5: 43. Jesus says, "I come in My Fathers name and you received me not. If another shall come in his name, him will you receive." The popular teaching in the church realm to day is, "This is the anti Christ." This is what I believe it means. Jesus before His physical return to earth is going to manifest Him self and His ministry in the Elect saints that have been tried in the fires. These saints will minister outside the organized church. Rev. 17: 14 " for He is LORD of lords and KING of kings and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful." These will come proclaiming "The Kingdom GOD is at Hand" and showing signs and wonders. The religious church will not receive these, but if one of their own comes showing counterfeit signs him will they receive in their pulpit.
The first epistle of John ch.2: v 18 states "Little children, it is the last time; and as you have heard that antichrist shall come; even now are there many antichrists; where by we know that it is the last time." The LORD is going to separate the sheep from the goats. He is also going to reveal the real Christ and lift them up to expose the counterfeit (antichrist.) In Exodus The Hebrews were in bondage to Pharaoh (Satan) Dwelling in Egypt and in much affliction. But the more they afflicted them the more they grew. They cried unto the LORD and he heard their cries and sent them a savior. We can say that this is the same condition the saints are in to day. We need to cry out for the Son of righteousness to arise with healing in His wings. There were also in Pharaohs court magicians that duplicated Moses signs and miracles. This is a good example of what is going on in the church of Jesus Christ the goats are duplicating the works of Jesus. Now Jesus is going to bring forth a work that will not be duplicated by Satan and his magicians. By understanding what GOD was doing through Moses and Aaron we will understand what Jesus is doing through His Prophets Priests and Kings in this day. Deut. 18:15 "The LORD thy GOD will raise up unto thee a prophet from the mist of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; (Moses) unto him shall you hearken;" The LORD our GOD will distroy Satan and his armies and those who would not obey Jesus and make a blood covenant with Him. Paul speaking of the church says in Romans 11:26, as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob; The old and new testament scriptures are full of types and shadows, allegories, (to express by story a meaning using symbols,) and metaphors, use of analogous (something similar). Also similitude of visions and dreams by the prophets. Let us look at Isa.19 in this light. Literal and spiritual, and keeping in mind the story of Exodus. In all these events our God is Sovereign. When He puts forth His hand to do His will no one can turn it back. Satan through the minds of disobedient and lawless men tries to distroy the works of God. When the Almighty God brings forth judgment it is meant for the wicked and not for the righteous. Isa.19 if there is coming forth a man of sin or son of perdition this chapter is what I believe would come close to describing him V: 1 "The burden of Egypt (world) Behold the Lord rideth on a swift cloud, (rev. 14:14) and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence. (Zeph. 2: 11. Says, "For the Lord will famish all the gods of the earth".) Isa. V: 2 and I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians. (Mt.24: 7). V: 3 and the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the mist there of (fear). I will destroy the counsel there of (wisdom). V: 4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce (Pharaoh) King shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts. V: 14 The Lord hath mingled a perverse spirit in the mist there of ; and they have caused Egypt to err in every work there of, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit. V: 15 Neither shall there be any work for Egypt. ( financial collapse of the worlds economy.) In order to make humans to want to change is to bring discomfort or discontent. When this earth is shaken with wars of great destruction some may look for the Prince of peace. To bring in the Kingdom of God were there is no greed or competition only righteousness cooperation, and the inhabitants of the world are not able to make their economy work then maybe they will except Gods economy. Satan will not give up the title deed of this earth to Jesus and his people with out a fight, but our heavenly Father is watching over us, "For its your Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom O little flock."
Today if we are watching we can see a shaking going on in every area of the worlds system. I would now share with you what I mentioned in my first letter about judgment coming upon America. America for its pride and its self reliance on her own might and not in God, shall be brought low, but will not be brought to a complete end, not like the goat nations as it is recorded in Mt. 25:32.
Back in the early 80’s a bro. Frank S. had two dreams and the Lord gave me the interpretations. I did not write them down so I’ll be drawing from memory. The first dream was this. Frank was standing out side his house at night, and he saw what looked like some thing flashing and silhouetting the mountains in the distance, end of dream. The interpretation was this. The flashes of light were bombs falling on the cities of America. I would come home from church and go to my room to pray and seek God, and as I did this the Lord began to show me visions of Russian TU 95 Bear bombers. I saw the capital hill building or white house crumbling. I kept hearing, Ezek. 38&39 over and over again, indicating I was to study these scriptures. Also Rev.9 was impressed upon me that this scripture about the 200Mil army of the Kings of the east would be fulfilled at the same time. I saw in a vision the Russian leader at that time with a hook in his jaw. His face looked like a pig. Ezek. 38: 4, "And I will turn thee back and put hooks into thy jaw, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army." What I perceived to be the trigger to this event, would be a war between Israel and Syria. Ezek.38: 8 and 10-11, These scriptures reveal two Israel’s , v 8 is the Israel in the middle east , v 10 and 11 is America , v 13 a young lion. America is the only allied nation strong enough to defend Israel. For any one that would come against and conquer her would have to remove America’s arm of protection. V-13 says that, They would come to take a spoil, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take away a great spoil. Only America has cattle and goods that would be a great spoil.
Rev. 9: 16, China is the only nation at this present time that has a 200 mil. army. This is what I perceive will cause this scripture to be fulfilled. Russia and China at this writing has an alliance, but I believe when Russia begins her campaign against us she will double cross China. What will cause Russia to take such risk? Desperation for spoil. Sink or swim so to speak. After several weeks of these revelations I woke up one morning about 4:30 am. I went to the kitchen to get a glass of water. As I was standing there the presence of the Lord’s Holy Spirit manifested Himself to me. I was asked a question, "When would be the best time for an enemy to attack America?" Then in vision I saw little children opening presents, I began to weep profusely. "Yes said the Lord to me on Christmas between midnight and 8 am and these innocent are the ones who are victims of this evil generation.’ That was the culmination of the first dream. Satan Claus the materialist god of this age. Lifted up and paraded through this nation starting on Thanks Giving day. The second dream is this. Frank S heard a knock at his front door. When he opened the door there stood a bear. He slammed the door shut in the bears face. Frank went and got his gun. He went to the window and opened it, there was the bear in a Russian uniform which he did not have on before. Frank stuck the gun out the window to shoot the bear, but the gun was knocked out of his hand. Interpretation—The bear ( Russia ) came the first time in peace (glausenoff parastroyka.) The second time the bear appears to us is to make war but our defenses will be knocked out of our hands. I was not shown what year this would happen.
It has been almost two decades since we received these revelations. In the spring of this year 99 I had an interesting dream, it went like this. There stood before me a Chinese man. He took my bible from me. Then he said to me, " If I catch you with a bible again I will put you in jail." My interpretation is this and I pray I have the mind of Christ in this matter. Just to speculate on things such as important as this is dangerous. You have heard the story of the little boy that cried wolf. To much speculation of prophecy interpretations will cause the saints to reject the truth when they do hear it. We can start by examining scripture. As previously stated in Ezek. 38: v8 & v’s 10-16. Gog the chief of Meshech and Tubal come against Israel v18 Gods fury against Gog v21, and I will call for a sword against him through out My mountains (nations), saith the Lord God; every man’s sword shall be against his brother. Here we see GOD using some one to fight against Gog. Who is this sword God uses against Gog? Rev. 9: 13 and the sixth angle sounded (the worlds trumpet judgments ). V13 and number of the army was 200 mil. Rev 16:12 the sixth angle poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water there of was dried up, that the way of the Kings of the east (China ) might be prepared. What it sounds like to me is that Russia invades Israel east at the same time invades Israel west (America). China is also our enemy and will take advantage at that time to invade the west coast of the U.S.while Russia invades the east coast. The Lord our God to insure that we will not be completely annihilated will turn them against each other. In Ezek. 39 Russia is turned back which may mean that China turned them back. Here we have a possibility of that cruel lord in Isaiah 19 to rule over Egypt (world). The U.S. the most powerful nation in the world is reduced to nothing will not be able to resist there conquerors. This would make China # 1 and the rest of the nations submit to him. I would not be surprised if Mexico joined in the looting like Moab did to Jerusalam when she was over run by the Babylonians.
The judgment we see happening here in the states and all over this world is a wake up sign, and they shall continue to increase in rapidity and intensity and closer together. The finale crescendo of the judgments of God would be Ezek. 38. What is the purpose for all this destruction? What can we look forward to? The first question has a twofold answer.
#1 is Isa. 2: 4 "And He shall judge among many nations, and shall rebuke many people; and they shall beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." That deals with the world.
#2 Jesus is coming for a church with out spot or wrinkle. Isa.
1: 25-28 The Lord speaking to His backslidden people. "And I will
turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away
thy tin, and I ‘ll restore thy judges as at first, (deliverers) and thy
counselors as at the beginning ; afterwards thou shall be called , the
city of righteousness, the faithful city, Zion shall be redeemed with judgment,
and her converts with righteousness. And the destruction of the transgressors
and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall
be consumed." Zeph.1: 6 "And them that are turned back from the Lord; and
those that have not sought the Lord, nor inquired for Him.’’
Question #2, "And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem; when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst there of by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning. And the Lord will create on every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night. And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from rain and storm." The presence of the Lord and His Shekinah glory. Ps. 91. Whether it rains or freezes we need to know we are in the arms of Jesus, not the anti Christ. The mark of the beast, I believe will be spiritual. For example, Ezek. ch. 9, considering the sovereignty of God in all things and Satan is subject to the word of God. What is communally interpreted in Daniel 9:27 as he (the anti christ) is He (Jesus Christ). Jesus shall confirm the covenant with many for one week. This covenant represents the church age of two thousand years. After the church age comes the Kingdom age
Jesus causes the animal sacrifices to cease
be cause He became our sacrifice. He is that lamb of God
that shed His blood once and for all time for our sins. Dan. 9:25
says that Messiah the Prince would come 69 weeks after the commandment
to restore and rebuild Jerusalem. When Jesus began His ministry
it was the beginning of the 70th week. Jesus fulfilled three
and a half years of the 70th week. Jesus declared His ministry in
the synagogue Lk. 4:18&19 referring to Isa. 61:1&2 leaving out,"
and the day of vengeance of our God." The last three and a half years
of the 70th week of Jesus ministry will be fulfilled by Jesus in His manifested
sons(overcomers)Rom.8:29. They shall declare the day of vengeance and the
Kingdom of God is at hand with power and authority. Mt.24:15, Jesus
says "when you there fore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken
of by Daniel the prophet, stand In the holy place,(who so readeth, let
him understand;) Dan. V:27 says, "and for the Over spreading of abominations
he (Titus) v26b shall make it (Jerusalem) desolate." What is an abomination
in the eyes of God? Jeremiah 6: 13 –15 idolatry. The present
day IC is an abomination unto our God, because of idolatry and the anti
christ dwelling in the midst of it, has made it desolate. Carnality
and the old Adamic mind set trying to build the church, by trusting in
worldly systems is not of God. With out faith it is impossible to
please God. Dan. 9:24 says, "Seventy weeks are Determined upon thy
people (those of Gods people before and after the cross) and upon thy holy
city, to finish transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make
reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in ever lasting righteousness,
and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy."
Acts 3: 19 "repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that the times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, v20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, v21whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of ALL things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began." We see here that Jesus will remain in heaven till times of restoration. This is probably why the apostles thought that Jesus would return in there day, because of the apostate condition of
Gods people the Jew. Acts 15: 16&17, "After this I will return, and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; v17 so the rest of man kind may seek the Lord. Even the gentiles who are called by My name, says the Lord who does all these things." In acts 3 it says that Jesus would remain in heaven till all things are restored. Acts 15 says He (God) would return to rebuild and restore His habitation (Church-Tabernacle). These scriptures do not contradict them selves, both are right. Jesus will be glorified and admired in His saints ROM. 8: 18. The elect over comers will manifest the life and ministry of Jesus to look for and gather the lost and scattered sheep of the house of Israel. These will manifest the presents and will of God on the earth before the physical return of Jesus. Isa.49:5-6 Now the Lord says,(there is one Lord, and His name is Jesus) "who formed me from the womb to be His servant. To bring Jacob back to Him, so that Israel is gathered to HIM, for I shall be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength. Indeed He says, it is too small a thing that you should be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will give you as a light to the gentiles, that you should be My salvation to the ends of the earth." This is the commission of the Christ generation of MT 1: 17, from the 1st century apostles up until now. Romans 8:19, For the earnest expectation of the creation waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God
Isaiah 61, The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and opening of the prison to them that are bound; v2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; v3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called the trees of righteousness, the plantingof the Lord, that He might be glorified. v:4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolation’s, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolation’s of many generations. v:5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks , and the sons of the alien shall be your plowman and your vine dressers. v:6 But you shall be named the priests of the Lord; men shall call you the Ministers of our God; you shall eat the riches of the gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast your selves. v: 7 For your shame you shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion; there fore in their land they shall possess double;
ever lasting joy shall be unto them. v:8 For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct there work in truth, and I will make an ever lasting covenant with them. v:9 And their seed shall be know among the gentiles, and their offspring among the people; all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed the Lord hath blessed. v:10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, He hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments and as bride adorneth herself with her jewels,v:11 for as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all nations.
Be encouraged Saints the Word of God has more good things to say to us than bad things. Isa. 61 alone should be an encouragement to press in to the Kingdom of God. 1Cor. 2: 9‘Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, nor has entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him." v10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God."
