Within two months of the end of Camp David the Palestinian Authority birthed the second intifada – a terrorist war against Israel, but giving Israel a continual bloody nose would not yield the result desired. Israel defeated the second intifada moving the Palestinians back to square one. Present Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has a different tactic in mind: to get the UN to step in and impose a solution on Israel. Then US Secretary of State John Kerry restarted negotiations on July 29, 2013. Israeli and Palestinian negotiators met in Washington to restart formal negotiations after a more than three year void. A nine month deadline was set which ends on April 31st 2014.
How are the talks going? What is being worked out behind the scenes? No one is talking, at least not to the press. US Secretary of State John Kerry made clear at the outset of the talks he labored so intensively to restart that he would be the only one authorized to speak on their progress. “The negotiations”, he said, “would only succeed if held far from the bright camera lights.” Only if the negotiators were not forced to play to their own domestic audience after each meeting did the talks have any chance of succeeding. Therefore, he said, he would be the only one discussing progress. But he hasn’t really said much beyond platitudes about the need for peace and the courage both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas showed in deciding to reengage.
Recently the Israeli state has been subsidizing nonprofit organizations that advocate the building of the Third Temple atop Jerusalem’s holiest site. Over the course of the last decade, the Israel Education and the Culture Ministries have transferred substantial amounts of funding to a non-government organization known as The Temple Institute. Should this be an indication the Palestinian Authority will need to make certain major concessions to get what it wants? Perhaps the trump card Abbas will need to play is to gain access to the Temple Mount for Jews, a partition to allow Israel to build a Temple on the Temple Mount, until the Palestinian Authority plays this card Israel may move no further.
Add to the mix the present Israel-Vatican negotiations over the Holy Basin and this is the move that the whole world is waiting for, peace between the three great Abrahamic faiths, sealed by equal access to the Holy Basin and the most holy site of all, the Temple Mount. The term “Holy Basin” refers to the area of the Temple Mount, the Mount of Olives, Mount Zion and a variety of Christian holy sites which the administration of former U.S. President Bill Clinton recommended be administered under a “special regime.” Pope Francis, celebrating his first Christmas as the Roman Catholic leader, prayed for a “favorable outcome” to the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians, and called for dialogue to end the conflicts. Though John Kerry is not talking we can observe the parties as they jockey for position. And recognizing Bible Prophecy, knowing that we are on the verge of the Mark of the Beast One World Money System, we can also anticipate the Temple Mount play about to begin.
For years we have exposed the fallacy of the counter-reformation futurist eschatology of the seventieth week of Daniel as a completely unbiblical interpretation. Most of the Evangelical and nominal Christian world has totally bought into this view through Seminary/Ministry indoctrination and Corporate Christian Media exposure, and not because of sound biblical interpretation. Because they see the world stage shaping to fulfill what they have been led to believe is sound interpretation, a “Left Behind” type scenario, this false eschatology is reinforced in the mind of not only the adherents but those who have been merely exposed to the specific media.
Is it possible that false prophecy can be fulfilled? The rapture theories have always been in dispute: pre-trib, mid-trib, post-trib disputes have risen up in exclusively evangelical circles of recent history, so that when “true believers” don’t suddenly disappear this element will easily go by the wayside when all see the Jewish Temple begin to be rebuilt. Will this be a part of the great delusion that will come upon the whole earth? It seems that this great prophetic delusion has already overcome practically the entire Evangelical and Christian World!
Let me quote the Jewish Israeli writer, Joel Bainerman from his article:
The Vatican Agenda: How Does The Vatican View The Legitimacy of Israel’s Claims To Jerusalem?
“The institution of “The Vatican” is not understood by Israelis and Jews. The conventional wisdom you get from the spokespersons in Israeli government ministries and the conventional Israeli media is “both sides have great intentions to do good” and that’s about it. When it comes to Israel’s bi-lateral affairs, nothing much gets investigated by the Israeli media. Thus a secret deal could be done between the Vatican and the State of Israel and nobody in Israel would ever find out about it. In fact, that is exactly what happened.”
What Does The Vatican Want?
It can’t be that the Vatican is only interested in “access to their Holy Sites” in Jerusalem. They already have that as well as legal jurisdiction under Israeli law for their institutions and assets in Jerusalem… It is something else, which the Vatican wants… to have certain versions of events be played out for them to stand in front of mankind and proclaim: our Messiah has returned.” Of course, to the Jews, this Messiah will be as false as the first one was supposed to be. Don’t matter. This is the goal of the Vatican and this is what all Israelis need to worry about.
The Vatican/Roman Catholic’s version of events is this:
They know this isn’t the end of the story that the Jewish G-d had in mind, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try and engineer their own ending to the story. So what if it is fraudulent. Doesn’t matter, that is their game plan and that is what matters and that is what Israeli Jews need to be better informed about. It is important for everyone to know what The Vatican has up its sleeve because it directly relates to our existence and our future destiny as an independent nation. This, a very powerful force is scheming to get control of the Old City of Jerusalem so you better know why and how the Vatican intends to do this.
For them to convince the world that the Messiah they put on the world’s stage is going to be accepted as genuine, they need to perform this play in the Old City. The story of this production is that this “Messiah” will merge the three monotheistic religions, usher in peace and harmony in the world, and solve the Middle East conflict. The location for this “production” will be in none other than the Old City of Jerusalem.
Evangelicals today are waiting with bated breath for the Jewish Temple to be rebuilt and the animal sacrifice to be resumed. They have no problem with this wrong sacrifice for sin taking place, but reserve the title, Abomination of Desolation for the “Left Behind” Anti Christ character moving into the Temple and proclaiming himself to be God. Something similar to this may or may not happen.
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 seventieth week of Daniel. 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 pseudo prophecy. This Anti-Christ character will follow the popular view close enough to be accepted by the adherents of this “Futurist/Left Behind view” to be misidentified 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 which includes the building of a New Jewish Temple.
To follow the script, three to four years into this Treaty the deal will begin to unravel and have to be abandoned because a conflict may arise out of opposition to the 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 or threat 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 conflict. Because he fulfills the false prophecy and vanquishes the first treaty breaking pseudo 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 propose the building of a Synagogue for the Jews and a Catholic Cathedral to represent Christianity to accompany Islam’s Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount to unite the Three Great Abrahamic Religions of the world as one, thus bringing peace to the region and the entire world.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (Mat 24:24)
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 demonized for all the ills that have plagued the world and precipitated the present crisis, 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 extended periods of time, so the final Mark of the Beast Inquisition may even go on for decades. How comforting the thought of relegating tribulation to a mere seven or three and a half year period which then may even be escaped by a “pre-tribulation rapture” based entirely upon a false seven year tribulation period prophecy. However it may take this long for the Final Inquisitors to just get warmed up while the elect to learn how to live thru it if possible.
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. (Rev 13:15-17)
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 World Social-Economic 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 exposing here without due investigation. If Daniel’s seventieth week is truly past then every prophecy that is based on this seven year period being future is tenuous at best. I challenge all to find that gap between the sixty-ninth and seventieth week for themselves – it is not there. This revelation changes everything prophetic. Be not deceived.
The Rapture Will Be Canceled
Well not really canceled, perhaps we’ll just have to postpone it a couple of times before it’s called off altogether! The starting point for our little examination is a present day building of a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount, and unless you’ve been hiding under a rock you know that millions of dollars worth of preparation have already been made towards this end. When it begins you may want to lay down all of your presupposition, because I’m sure of one thing, that there will be plenty of surprises for all concerned.
However this starting point will need something bigger than money, it will need a treaty of some sort, because Jerusalem with the Old City has been declared an “International City” and that means it belongs to the Nations. Jesus said, “…and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:24) And that word ‘Gentiles’ is the same word that may be translated ‘Nations’ from the original Greek, so he could have said, “until the times of the Nations be fulfilled.” I believe this is a reference to the same event described at the end of Daniel Chapter Two where the Mystery Babylon Image is obliterated at His Appearing.
The rebuilding of the Jewish Temple and re-institution of the Priest Temple Sacrifice System have been foretold numerous times through the Old Testament. But, every instance of this prophecy has been followed by its fulfillment with the Rebuilt Temple after the Babylonian Captivity and the seventy years Desolation. Does this mean there wont be another attempt to build the Jewish Temple and restore the Priest Temple Sacrifice System before the Messiah returns? It is very likely that there will be an attempt to build a Third Jewish Temple, but it may or may not be completed, because the Bible does not have one prophecy of the rebuilding of this Temple that was given after the actual Second Temple was completed as chronicled at Ezra chapter six. This fact and the omission of specific language detailing a ‘Third’ Temple may lead us to safely conclude that such prophecies have been completely fulfilled and any attempt to build another Temple may or may not reach fruition.
When an agreement or treaty does arise which includes the building of a Temple, for many in the Christian and Evangelical World this will be the starting shot for what they believe to be a Seven Year Tribulation Period which is based upon a non-literal interpretation of the Daniels Seventy Weeks prophecy. The text simply does not support this supposition, because it is based solely upon conjecture, taken literally the events of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks were allotted a four hundred and ninety year time period within which to be fulfilled and history shows that it has been completely fulfilled.
Nevertheless it is more than likely that a Third Temple will commence to be built to the end of restoring the Priest Temple Sacrifice System. And when this happens all of the Rapture enthusiasts will become very excited, but their enthusiasm will be quickly tempered when they do not begin to fly away. All of the Pre-Tribulation Rapturists will suddenly join the Mid-Tribulation Rapture camp and hunker down for another three and a half years.
The Politician who is assigned to bring this Treaty or Agreement will be identified by the adherents of the Left Behind/Seven Year Tribulation scheme of Eschatology as the Anti-Christ character commensurate with those fictional books. They will not be disappointed in the fact that the treaty will be broken and it is unlikely that the Temple Sacrifice System will even be instituted. Whether the Sacrifice actually begins or not, just the end of the agreement will be enough to qualify as “putting an end to the sacrifice” as required by the script.
The script calls for this to happen in the middle of the Pseudo Seventieth Week and will be followed as close as possible so that when the first three and a half years pass the Rapture adherents will once again be ready to float into the air to meet Jesus and the dead in Christ! But they will be disappointed once again requiring a last grasp to the Post-Tribulation Rapture position. Of course this last three and a half years will pass in desperate anticipation by those who have now been disappointed twice. Surely this final wait will be absolutely secure in its expectation because in the minds of those indoctrinated in the Left Behind-Seven Year Tribulation Deception there is no other position to move to.
By the end of this Counterfeit Seventieth Week enough of the attributes of the Fictional Series will be accomplished to satisfy its true believers. The Puppet False Anti-Christ↑ who makes and or breaks the treaty will be deposed or worse. This will also be the final blow to the Rapture and the death of hope for a resurrection event that precedes the grave. The New World Social-Economic Order with its main features: Social Justice, Charity in Truth, Financial and Religious Equality (Social-Commu-Facism) will be introduced to the world by a team of New World Leaders.
These leaders, with the True Anti-Christ who will assuage their disappointment by proclaiming, ‘I Am the Vicar of Christ, the true fulfillment of the prophecy and now begins a Millennial Reign, an Evolution to a New World Social-Economic Order of Peace.’ A Jubilee will be proclaimed, National Debts will be forgiven to kick off the New Fair and Equal Monetary System. The Three Great Mono-Theistic Religions will be united in peace. It will be like heaven on earth! The requirement of forced peace, like Pax Romana will tell the tale, as the Messiah warned, “the violent take it by force.” No one will ever be forced into the true Kingdom of God, this would violate the very principle of the Gospel of the Kingdom which requires voluntary repentance. This is why Social-Commu-Facism is an abomination.
All of the Ecumenical Evangelical Religious leaders will affirm to their congregations, “that there has always been a debate about the Rapture,” pre-mid-post, so that we should not be disappointed because what is sure is the gospel that we have learned for the last hundred years. “Don’t you know, we get to go to heaven when we die?” And all the people will exclaim, “Oh Yea! We get to go to heaven when we die!” However this too is a subtle deception because Jesus never said, “Repent for you get to go to heaven when you die.” Rather He did warn of bad preachers who would “shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.” Mat 23:13
His Gospel was different, He said, …Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (Mat 4:17) and the Bible clearly teaches that we go to the resurrection when we die only if we are already in His Kingdom for He also proclaimed , …he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. (Mat 24:13) Nowhere does the Bible teach that the Resurrection is preceded by a seven year tribulation period or follows Daniels seventieth week. When you see the Temple begin to be rebuilt it will actually initiate a seven year countdown to the overt reign of the True Anti-Christ and the beginning of the New World Social-Economic Order with its companion Mark of the Beast Monetary System. Please do not be so quick to dismiss this almost unbelievable but very carefully crafted great delusion exposed here.
How are we respond to these things? We should continue to walk in the Spirit and be led by the Spirit, our Creator calls His Elect to obey to His commandments, allow His Holy Spirit to bring forth the fruit of repentance in your life, “the good works which God has before ordained that we might walk in them.” If you cannot obey Him now, how do you think He will lead you when the time is critical? Learn to trust and obey Him now and you will be able to hear and obey Him through this Global Great Depression, coming world conflicts and Mark of the Beast Inquisition. Cross the Border into His Kingdom, obey the King and live forever, nothing is more important!
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. (Mat 23:13)
