TESTING THE ALLEGATION THAT SOME MIGHT BE ‘LEFT BEHIND’ TO GET ‘A SECOND CHANCE’
We can be certain that, whether Jesus comes to take His sincere disciples home through natural death or on the clouds at His return, “It is appointed for all men to die once [and/or be changed into undying bodies at His return,] and after that the judgment,” (Heb. 9:27; 1 Cor. 15:35-58.) No one will get a ‘second chance’ to repent either after death or after Jesus’ return on ‘That Day.’ Thus, to teach that Jesus will return ‘twice,’ leaving some behind to ‘get a second chance,’ is merely a Protestant imitation of Purgatory, the false ‘temporal’ hell of the Roman Catholic Church.
¨ The best example to utterly refute this “left behind” dogma remains Jesus’ parable of the five foolish virgins without oil in their lamps, who will be refused entrance to the one and only marriage feast at “the Midnight Cry,” (Mt. 25:1-13.) When Jesus’ bride, the five wise virgins in this parable, “went in with Him to the Wedding, the door was shut. [When the other virgins came and demanded entrance to the Wedding, He did not say, ‘Okay, wait, I will return later to fetch you!’] Instead, He answered them, “Assuredly I say to you, I do not know you.” These terrifying words echo in Jesus’ warning in Matthew 7:21-24, “[So-called ‘born again’ people] will say, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied, cast out demons, and done many wonders in Your Name?’ But He will declare to them, ‘I... never knew you. Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness… For [those] who hear My Word and obeys Me, I will liken them to a wise man who built his house on the rock…’”
¨ Scripturally, we will not ‘have’ Jesus Christ when it suits us, but when He calls us. “Today,” Hebrews 4:7 and 10:31 warn, “If you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts… It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
“THAT DAY” WHEN JESUS RETURNS FOR HIS ONE AND ONLY BRIDE, HAS ALWAYS BEEN KNOWN AS HIS “GATHERING TOGETHER OF HIS SAINTS,” “JUDGMENT DAY,” AND “THE END OF THE WORLD BY FIRE”
Jesus Himself said in Matthew 24:29-31, “After the tribulation… all the tribes of the [whole] earth will mourn as they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. [Only then,] will He send His angels with a great sound of [the Last and seventh] trumpet to gather together His [one and only bride] from the four winds, from one end of [the earth under] heaven to the other.”
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout [so loud it will raise the dead all across the planet,] and the [Last] trumpet of God…” No ‘rapture’ here or anywhere in the Truth of Scripture.
Revelation 11:15; 19:1, 6-9, “The seventh angel [will] sound and loud voices in heaven [will] say, ‘The kingdoms of this world have [now] become the kingdoms of our Lord…’ After these things I heard a great multitude in heaven… saying, ‘Alleluia! The Lord God Omnipotent Reigns… For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.’ And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints… Blessed are those who are called to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb!”
2 Thessalonians 1:7-10, “…[Jesus will be] revealed from heaven [singular] with His mighty angels in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the Gospel of Christ.”
No more mercy at His return. No follow-up returns. This is The Day in which the bride, the “wise virgins who are ready,” go to heaven for all eternity “in the twinkling of an eye, (1 Cor. 15:51-55.) Then, “the door is shut,” (Mt. 25:1-13.)
So, That (One) Day when Jesus “comes on the clouds [just as He ascended into heaven, Acts 1:9-11,] every eye shall see Him, [even they who pierced Him, Rev. 1:7] every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that He is Lord,” (Phil. 2:10-11, KJV.) Thus, “all the tribes [or all people] of the [whole] earth will mourn when they see Him coming on the clouds,” (Mt. 24:30.) Those who are ready will cry for joy to see Him; those who are not ready will mourn with unthinkable sorrow because they will know that this is Judgment Day.
Exactly as at death, when the Bridegroom returns for His bride on That Day, He will simultaneously execute judgment on all sinful people, unbelievers as well as believers, (Heb. 9:27; Lu. 16:19-31.) “[Believers] must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men…”
“…Every man will give an account… on The Day [singular] of judgment…” (Mt. 12:36.) Acts 17:31, “…He has appointed A Day [singular] on which He will judge the [whole] world…” Revelation 6:17, “The Great Day [singular] of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” Isaiah 13:9-10, “The Day of the Lord [singular] will come. Cruel, with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the [whole earth, 2 Pt. 3:10-14,] desolate. And He will destroy its sinners from it.” Joel 1:15; 3:14, “The Day of the Lord is near, and as destruction from the Almighty it comes… Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision! For The Day of the Lord [singular] is near in the valley of decision...”
So, Paul prophesied in 1 Timothy 4:1, “I charge you before God… Who will judge the living [all believers who are physically alive, (2 Cor. 5:10; Rom. 14:11-12,) and those who already “died in Christ,”)] as well as the dead, [Christians and unbelievers that are “not ready” at His return, and those who already died without Jesus,] at His [once off] appearing…” “Appearing” means when everyone will see Him return on the clouds On That Day, (Mt. 24:30-31.)
In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Paul gave the details of “the just in Christ” that will rise first at Jesus’ return. Paul was not excluding the “unjust dead without Christ,” who will also rise to be judged on That [Same] Day. The context of 1 Thessalonians 4:16 is, “Ignorance concerning those who have fallen asleep, [died physically,] lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.” Paul’s focus here is on believers, not on unbelievers and disobedient believers. He taught, “The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, [so loud it sounds across the whole world,] and with the [last] trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we will always be with Him…”
Next, Jesus will judge the unjust and destroy the whole earth with fire! (2 Ths. 1:6-10.) 2 Peter 3:10-14, “The Day of the Lord [singular] will come as [unexpectedly not secretly, Lu. 21:34-36; Mark 13:35-37; Mt. 24:44-46,] as a thief in the night, in which [Day; One Day,] the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are on it will be burned up. Therefore… what person aught you to be in conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the Coming of The Day [singular] of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat.”
Þ Jesus our Master declared in John 12:48, “He who rejects Me and does not receive My words, has that which judges him: the Word that I have spoken will judge him on The Last Day.” And in John 6:40, “…Everyone who… believes in Me may have everlasting life, and I will raise him up at The Last Day.” 1 Corinthians 4:5, “When He comes, He will bring to light the hidden things… and the councils of the heart…” 2 Peter 2:4-9, “For if God did not spare the angels who sinned… or those in the days of Noah and Lot, then He knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for The [Last] Day of Judgment… [singular.]”
¨ Mathew 24:37-38, “As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be… [Singular.] They did not [take notice of Noah’s warnings] until the flood came and took them all away…” As with the foolish virgins who, at the last moment, will cry for entrance to the Marriage Supper, God Himself will “shut the door” and say, “I do not know you,” (Mt. 25:1-13.) So also was it when, at the last moment, those of Noah’s days wanted to enter the ark when the rain came, “but the Lord shut Noah in,” (Gen. 7:16.)
¨ “[That Day there will be] two people in one bed: the one will be taken [to meet the Lord in the air,] and the other will be left, [not “Left Behind” to get a second chance at His so-called ‘third return,’ but left to eternal destruction with all the other ungodly people and the whole earth, 2 Pt. 3:10-14.]”
¨ Jesus Himself declared in Luke 17:28-30, “...It was also in the days of Lot [as it is now.] They ate, drank, bought, sold, planted, and built. But on The [same] Day that Lot went out of Sodom, [which is a symbol of the bride of Christ being called from the sinful world and the earth at Jesus’ return,] it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so, will it be in The Day [singular] when the Son of Man is revealed [from heaven.]”
¨ That Day, [singular,] he who is on the housetop… and he who is in the field, let him not turn back, [or be torn between Jesus and anyone or anything he must leave behind when he hears the Midnight Cry.] Remember Lot’s wife. [It is certain that these are not the ones who will allegedly ‘be left behind at the rapture.’] Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life [for Jesus’ justice and truth,] will preserve it,” (Lu. 17:28-37.)
¨ This warning ‘not to look back’ or waver when Jesus’ bride hears the Midnight Cry and when the last trumpet sounds (Rev. 11:15) to summon the angels to gather together the bride from the whole earth, (Mt. 24:31,) refutes the entire doctrine of the “rapture,” (the so-called stealing, snatching, tearing away, or abduction of the saints, as well as Jesus’ so-called “third return to fetch those who were left behind.”) Even at the Midnight Cry, [singular,] God will not override the gift of free will that He had entrusted to every person. He will call and His bride must follow. Lot and his family did not get a ‘second chance’ to decidedly flee from the burning Sodom. Jesus warned in Mt. 24:42, “Watch [and be ready,] for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.”
WHAT DOES SCRIPTURE SAY ABOUT “THE ONE-MAN ANTICHRIST” AND THE “7-YEAR TRIBULATION?”
I always repeat the following because, to interpret Scriptural contextually, it is vital to understand under which Testament or Covenant of the Bible believers live. Hebrews 8:13, “[When Jesus] says a New Covenant, He has made the First [Old Testament Covenant] obsolete [to establish the New Testament Covenant in His own blood.]” Sadly, Messianic Judaism or Christian Zionism ignores the Jesus of the New Covenant and denies His Name, Divinity, and completed work on the cross to steal the salvation of believers, as people can only be saved by Him, (Jn. 14:6.) The rapture and it’s interconnected Israeli Timeline dogmas, which so many other churches also believe, form a maze of deceptions that focus on the ousted Old Covenant with Israel, instead of on the New Covenant body of Christ and the dangers of the false church system. So, these teachers misplace and twist Old and New Testament Scriptures to brainwash believers with their false doctrines.
For instance, the incredibly abused Chapter of Daniel 9 is not about the antichrist of the end-time; it is all about Jesus Christ. Yet, the Illuminati/Jesuit agents who spread the “Israeli Timeline” and its connected dogmas, turned everything upside down by focusing on only the last verse in this chapter, (Dan. 9:27.) In this way, they corrupted the whole chapter to present it as a so-called “one-man antichrist,” sitting “like God in a third temple in Jerusalem” during the so-called “7-year tribulation.” Even if they do build another temple, the real aim of the “New Apostolic Reformation/Reconstruction” is to lure the entire world away from Jesus Christ and back to Judaism to rule the world through Christian governments, or Dominionism. They are in cahoots with Jewish societies, and building the “third” temple is their priority as the so-called “one-man” ruler of the whole world will allegedly sit there. Blood sacrifice will be institution again, as well as the physical, Levitical priesthood, and maybe, they make themselves believe they will rule the world together with the Jews.
¨ The Matthew Henry Commentary explains this chapter perfectly. It declares in Daniel 9:1-19, “This is about Daniel's prayer for the restoration of the Hebrews who were in captivity. He confesses their sin and acknowledges the justice of God, but pleads God's promises of mercy which God had yet in store for them. Daniel is then assured of the speedy release of the [Old Covenant] Hebrews out of their captivity, (v. 20-23.) He is also informed concerning the redemption of the world by Jesus, (of which this captivity was a type, 1 Cor. 10:11;) what it’s nature is, and when it should be accomplished, (v. 24-27). This is the clearest, brightest, prophecy of the Messiah in all the Old Testament.” Yet, the evil pervertors of this wonderful passage turned it into the global rule of the “one-man antichrist!”
¨ Concerning the ‘rebuilding of the third temple,’ Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the first (Solomon’s) temple in Jerusalem in 587 B.C. The Second Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D., (Mt. 24:1-2.) The everlasting “Third Temple” is Jesus blood-bought body, which He erected after He had risen from the grave, (Mark 14:58.) This temple will never be in the likeness of the two old temples in Jerusalem, (Heb. 8:13.) This temple is the New Covenant body of Christ: the Temple of the Holy Spirit, (1 Cor. 6:15-20.) Jesus will never preach the New-Reformation lie that He will, after His return, occupy another temple that will again exist in the city of Jerusalem here on earth. Jesus’ true Word states that real believers “are looking for a heavenly country and city, the heavenly Jerusalem,” (Heb. 11:14-16; 12:22-24.) The New Covenant in Christ is all about the eternal and the spiritual, not the physical and the temporal.
However, Illuminati agents linked these misinterpreted Old Testament verses to selective New Testament verses to confirm their doctrines of the “one-man antichrist,” “7-year tribulation,” etcetera. But everything Jesus and the apostles taught and prophesied in the Gospels and Epistles, is about the New Covenant Body, Bride, and Temple of Christ, (1 Cor. 10:11.) Jesus, during His life here on earth and on Golgotha, fulfilled the entire Old Testament Law, (the ceremonial temple law as well as the Moral Law,) so that all His sincere disciples can be spiritually birthed from, and follow Him according to His New Testament Covenant, (Mt. 5:17; Heb. 8:13; Jn. 1:12-13; 3:-3-5, 1 Cor. 6:15-20.)
¨ Thus, the entire context of Scripture makes it plain that, as the theologian Polycarb explained, “Anyone teaching false dogma is the antichrist,” (1 Jn. 2:18.) Antichrists are Satan’s human agents, who replace the truth with lies to exalt themselves to the status of so-called “christs and gods.” Paul said in 2 Thessalonians 2:7-10, “The antichrist” is the spirit of “the mystery of lawlessness,” or “the god of this world.” New Covenant Scripture always refers to the antichrist spirit, not to a “one” antichrist “man.” Satan is the “adversary;” the “lawless one” who withstands, opposes, and twists Jesus’ truth to “turn himself” into a ‘christ and a god,’ (2 Cor. 10:14-15.) Thus, Scripture refers to Satan, (supported by the demons and humans under his command,) when speaking of “the man of sin,” (1 Jn. 5:19.)
¨ Satan’s human agents could never correctly interpret the Bible’s end-time prophesies of the Old Testament, (Daniel Chapters 7-12,) or the relating prophesies in the New Testament, (Revelation Chapter 13, etcetera.) This is so because God commanded in Daniel 12:4, “...Seal the [visions] until the time of the end; [during the latter part of the tribulation, the “great tribulation,” Mt. 24:15-31,] when many shall run to and fro, (following false teachers and prophets, Mt. 24:4-28,) and knowledge shall increase” like never before. These prophesies can only be interpreted now in the context of the astounding advancement in science and technology during the 20th century, in the recent history of global politics, (“the beast from the sea,” Rev. 13:1-10; Dan. Chapters 7-12,) and the rise of evil in the global church system or (the worldwide “beast from the earth,” (Rev. 13:10-18.)
¨ Additionally, Jesus does not speak in the Gospels of a “7-year tribulation.” He warns of one, continuous, escalating tribulation on all levels of life, which becomes “great” during the end of the end-times,’ (Mt. 24:1-21.) This ‘great’ part of the tribulation will become “as such as has not been since the beginning of the world, nor ever will be.”
¨ It is, therefore, very convenient to believe in the rapture doctrine, which promises ‘an instant, easy outcome’ from all the unbearable things that are already clamping down upon the whole world. However, the Holy Spirit always takes us “through the water and the fire” to cultivate His Godly character in us, (1 Pt. 5:10.)
WHAT DOES SCRIPTURE REALLY SAY ABOUT “THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION IN THE HOLY PLACE?”
“The Tribulation” era is a multilevel fulfilment of the end-times, and building another temple is not impossible, (Mt. 24:6-8.) But the prophecy of the “abomination of desolation in the holy place” is not a literal fulfilment concerning the temple of the Jews. Jesus was not referring to the Illuminati’s so-called “one-man antichrist,” sitting in a “rebuilt temple in Jerusalem.” Neither was Jesus referring to the pope of Rome heading the Catholic Church, the so-called ‘one-man antichrist’ ruling the United Nations, or a one-man antichrist in the guise of Prince Charles, Harry, or anyone else.
¨ Nevertheless, Illuminati agents, diverting believers from Jesus to Judaism, skillfully linked the spiritual, New Testament manifestation of “the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place” to a “rebuilt Jewish temple” and the so-called “7-year, one-man antichrist rule during the Great Tribulation” “after the rapture.” To pull this off, they butchered Daniel’s prophecy concerning Jesus in the Old Testament to focus on only one verse: Daniel 9:27. With this masterly move, they wired Jesus’ believers to accept all the false dogmas of the Israeli Timeline, ( Mt. 24:15-30.)
Here follows the context of the “abomination of desolation, [spiritual death, emptiness, and darkness caused by destruction through precisely engineered deception,] standing in the holy place.” Jesus is omnipresent, but Satan is not. Yet, in 2 Corinthians 4:4, Paul called him “the god of this world.” John agreed by saying, “The whole world is in the power of the evil one,” (1 Jn. 5:19.) That refers to a powerful, revered ruler and deceiver in the spirit world.
¨ So, Paul firmly stood on Jesus’ teachings when he unmistakably explained in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 that Satan is ‘the abomination in the holy place…’ as “he sits as God in the temple of God...” (Verse 4.) Where is “the temple of God where this antichrist spirit rules as God?” Under Jesus’ eternal New Testament Covenant, it is the sincerely believing, born again temple of the Holy Spirit! So, Paul solemnly warned, (Verse 3,) “Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ [singular] and our gathering together to Him... [at His once-off return,] let no one deceive you…
¨ (Verses 9-10,) “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, [here Paul exposes Satan as “the antichrist god” that rules the deceived world,] with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved…”
¨ (Verse 3,) “That Day [of Jesus return, singular] will not come unless the great falling away [from Scriptural Truth] comes first, and the man of sin, [not a physical man but “the god of this world,”] is revealed; the son of perdition,
¨ (Verse 4,) who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God and all that is worshiped, [this is how the perfectly created Lucifer fell from glory,] so that he sits as God, [in demon possessed “christ and god” clergies,” in the temple of God, [the Holy Spirit’s temple of born again believers…] showing himself that he is God… [No sincere believer can argue that this spirit has been at work in humanity through all the ages, and is finally clearly revealed in our day through the abominations that are being committed by church clergies, and globally by other lawlessness.]
¨ (Verse 7-8,) For [Satan is] the mystery of lawlessness… [because his evil is so great it is incomprehensible,] and is already at work… Whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming or [His return to earth...] (Mt. 24:4-5, 11-12, 23-26...)
In Matthew 24:1-3, Jesus’ disciples asked when the end will come and what the signs of the end will be. Jesus answered in Matthew 24:4-14, “Take care that no one deceives you. For many will come in My Name, [from the midst of true believers,] saying, ‘I am the christ,’ and will deceive many.” Pentecostal/Charismatics openly declare they are ‘manifests sons of god’ or god in the flesh:’ “christs and gods...” So do Old, New, and other “apostles,” etcetera.
¨ The next verse, Matthew 24:15-26 seriously warns, “[When you see the abomination of desolation... spoken of by Daniel, standing in the holy place...” Jesus, knowing what a fanatical fallacy the Illuminati would make of this
