Entertain if you will the idea that there are powerful forces at work in this world with the motivation to take advantage of this very compelling and popular, but false view of prophecy, a juxtaposed 70th week of Daniel. Yes I did mention Counter-Reformation, and that does implicate the Vatican. At the time for the building of a Third Temple a figure will arise who fits the bill of the Anti-Christ of the popular false prophecy. This Anti-Christ character will follow the popular view close enough to be accepted by adherents to this “Futurist/Left Behind view” to be identified as the “true Anti-Christ” while at the same time he will through popular media manipulation be accepted by the world as a Peacemaker when he makes a mid-east peace deal to include the building of a Third Temple.
Perhaps three to four years into this Treaty the deal will begin to unravel and have to be abandoned because a conflict will arise out of opposition to a Third Temple. The deal will be broken! Islam will not have a Third Temple so any deal with their leadership to allow it is doomed from the start. The Vatican cannot allow it to be completed because any sacrifice other than their bloodless sacrifice of trans-substantiation is unacceptable. Only Orthodox Jewry desire the Third Temple as true believers. Evangelical Adherents are true believers with a different motivation, which is to bring about events that will precipitate the return of Christ, however they are unwitting puppets of the counter-reformation eschatology that they hold so dear, false prophecy.
These events will most likely be accompanied by a major multilateral military conflict in the mid-east and the world will cry for peace as usual. Then will step onto the scene the True Anti-Christ bringing peace to the world. Because He fulfills the false prophecy and vanquishes the first treaty breaking False Anti-Christ He will be accepted as the fulfillment of the popular prophecies of the return of Christ proclaiming that He is The Vicar Of Christ, His Replacement on Earth and the true meaning and fulfillment of Bible Prophecy. He may, as our Jewish writer suggests, propose the building of a Synagogue and a Catholic Cathedral to accompany the Dome of the Rock on the Temple mount to unite the great religions of the world as one thus bringing peace to the region and the entire world.
The fulfillment of this false prophecy will delude the entire world and even the Elect, if it were possible. True bible believers will suddenly be the majority dissenters and will be blamed for all the ills of the New Social Order and eventually Social Justice will require that they be put to death for the good of the whole. This has happened before, it was called The Inquisition, and The Bible tells us that it will happen again. Past Inquisitions have lasted hundreds of years, so the coming Crusades may be no different. How comforting the thought of relegating tribulation to a mere seven year period which then may even be escaped by a “pre-tribulation rapture” based entirely upon a false 7 year tribulation period prophecy. How many hundreds of millions of bible believing martyrs would have benefitted from a “rapture” escape?
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
The Bible tells us about the mark of the beast which will be necessary so “that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark.” Receiving this mark will be the test of whether you are or are not a part of the New Social Order. True Bible believers will need to discern exactly who or what is this beast and what is or does this mark represent. For that we must turn to The Bible and true prophecy. If you are a true Bible believer you will not just dismiss the things that I am saying without due investigation. If Daniels 70th week is truly past then every prophecy that is based on this 7 year period being future is tenuous at best. I challenge all to find that gap between the 69th and 70th week for themselves – it is not there. This revelation changes everything prophetic. Be not deceived.
Peace be with you all///
