WHAT GOD IS DOING NOW IN HIS CHURCH - Part 2
IS CHINA NOW THE SUPER POWER AND WHO IS THE ANTI-CHRIST?
My heart was bleeding when this pandemic that started in Wuhan China became a global affair as the scourge swooped into nations of the world killing human beings and bringing a twist to the economies of the whole world. Many people including clergymen and women, other religious leaders, politicians etc, all over the world began to give out their fake messages saying, “thus says the Lord when the Lord had not spoken”. Some went as far as quoting dates as what the Lord told them when the scourge will be over. Many even cited the predictions of Nostradamus. I was flabbergasted as I could not come to terms that we ministers of the gospel have resorted to using predictions of an avatar or occult grand-master which is what Nostradamus was, to understand what the Lord revealed to us in the scriptures. We began to neglect the leading of His Spirit to follow shadows and many who have been waiting for the downfall of United States of America started hailing China as the next super-power.
In the midst of this devastating confusion, many people both the unbelieving world and even the Christendom are asking questions about the end of age, the coming of the anti-Christ and the much talked about rapture of the saints, with great fear as not to be left behind. I am therefore led by the Lord to use the scripture and put some of these records straight so that he/she who has ears should hear what the Lord is saying.
THE GAME OF SUPER POWER DOMINATION
I read an article in which somebody was talking about how America and China have been fighting a cold war over who will be the super power. He narrated how America fought the same battle with Russia for forty (40) years and they eventually subdued Russia by dismantling what was formerly known as Union of Soviet Socialists Republic (USSR) as they instigated and helped in granting independence to many nations that make up the strong USSR. By this act, they weakened USSR militarily and economically like they did to Germany after the Second World War dividing them into East and West Germany, thus weakening her both militarily and economically. Though they are back together as Germany, but don’t possess the kind of solid power they had before and during the Second World War. Another article I also read by a Chinese soldier suggested that China knows they cannot defeat America militarily, so the only option is to find a way to defeat them economically. With the introduction of crypto-currency, the Asian giants China, Russia etc, wanted to use those Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripples, etc., to weaken the world dominance of Pound, Dollar and Euro in the international market. But again America and their Europe allies conspired and pulled out their business billionaires who had swung into action with their dollars, pounds and Euros to make crypto-currency a global trend. So instead of dollar, pound and euro crashing, crypto-currency crashed before the world took serious note of it and those Asian giants are the worst hit. So in retaliation and in their continued quest to dominate the world, China invented and gave the entire world “corona virus” targeting majorly at United States of America and their Europe allies, and thereby almost bringing the economies of this countries and the world to a halt. It is no more news to the world that it is not a common virus in China called Corona that causes flu like common cold, cough and catarrh etc, that they are battling with but a powerful bio-chemical virus that kills with reckless abandon. With this they say, China has succeeded in gaining control of the world economy as America and their Europe allies cannot easily bounce back and that will also reflect in them being the next super power having overthrown America and their allies. Well this is mere permutations from man and wishful thinking for God did not make such provision in the scriptures. And China had not only opened their businesses since, but invented an anti-vaccine to tackle this virus which they intend to sell to the rest of the world and boost their economy. The truth remains that God named His super powers before the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will be established on earth for God to bring to an end this historic panorama. This is not to say that China is not one of the world powers that the world knows about, but she is not a super power and can never be.
UNVEILING GOD’S SUPER POWERS
God made sure He gave us no room to doubt Him if we are seeking Him in spirit and truth as He began to show the world who the super-powers that will rule this world were and will be by first revealing it in B. C. 603 to a heathen king who He called His servant. Before this revelation, God had instituted the “times of the Gentiles” which He revealed to prophet Jeremiah and that is “the Gentiles domination and subjugation of Jerusalem”. All the kings and kingdoms that fought and defeated Israel were never able to overwhelm Jerusalem. King Sargon of Assyria who came close carried the “ten tribes” of Israel without Benjamin and Judah into captivity in B. C. 721, because they were still another nation. However, prophesying to Jehoiakim the son of Josiah the king of Judah, Jeremiah in chapters 25, 26 and 27 of his book, told him of the seventy (70) years captivity of Jerusalem, with all the souls, all the vessels, etc, by Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon who God had divinely chosen as His servant to execute that divine mandate. And so in B. C. 606, the seventy years captivity of Jerusalem by Babylon prophesied by Jeremiah began. Nebuchadnezzar as the war lord but not yet the king, until the death of Nabopolassar his father, who was the king in B. C. 605, led the armies of Babylon to destroy Jerusalem and took captive many of the Jewish youths like Daniel, Shedrack, Meshach, Abednego, etc., as slaves.
In the second year of his reign (i.e. B.C. 603), God showed him for the very first time in a dream about the kingdoms, the super powers and the kingdom of our Lord Jesus being established on earth. He neither remembered nor understood it and so in Daniel Chapter 2 after the dream he assembled all his astrologers, sorcerers and Chaldeans, to remind him the dream and the interpretation. None could until Daniel was brought in and he told him the dream and the interpretation by the divine inspiration of God. And the dream was:
THE DREAM OF NEBUCHADNEZZAR
“Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee: and the form therefore was terrible. This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, his legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors: and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth” (Dan 2:31-35).
THE INTERPRETATION OF THE KING’S DREAM
Daniel the prophet said to Nebuchadnezzar, “thou art this head of Gold”, and so Babylon which is Iraq today through Nebuchadnezzar’s reign was the first super power beginning “the seventy years of Jerusalem’s captivity or the “times of the Gentiles”. The arms and the breast were the Medo-Persian Empire under Cyrus who was from the root of Queen Esther and King Ahasuerus, that was the second super power and then came the belly and the thighs of the image that Daniel interpreted as the Grecian empire, and which was fulfilled under Alexander the Great, as the third super power. Note that Persia is Iran of today and Grecia is Greece. And then the next super power was as Daniel put it, “strong as iron: for as much as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise”. The fourth super power mentioned here that has iron leg was the Roman Empire. There is a significant thing that happened here; apart from the iron leg, part of the feet and toes of the image were iron while the other part was clay.
Daniel went further to explain, “and whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potter’s clay (democratic governance), and part of iron (iron curtain or governance of communism), the kingdom shall be divided. But there shall be in it of the strength of iron, for as much as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom (Roman) shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” The old Roman Empire truly was divided into two; the clay and iron. Clay represents the part that operates democratic principles of governance while the iron represents the iron curtain countries of Europe that operate communism as principles of governance. Just as it is not possible to physically mix iron when melted with clay because when it gets cold, they will separate showing they were never meant to be together. This is how communism and democracy can never work together in the governance of any nation. So all their efforts to confederate with nations not practicing the principles each use in governance have failed and will continue to fail. And then that iron kingdom which was Roman Empire at its inception later lost its power or supremacy to Britain and it became the British Empire but still under the original Roman Empire. Then the British Empire gave birth to America and America defeated them and later unified many nations, islands and states and chose to answer United States of America but still under the old Roman Empire. The old Roman Empire became revived and christened themselves Europe League first of all after the Second World War, and then later European Union; so the European Union formed a strong ally with United States of America economically, politically, militarily and even religiously because they are all the sons of Japheth.
For this reason China dreads them, Russia dreads them, North Korea dreads them, the Arab League led by Iran and Syria dreads them because they (revived Roman Empire – i.e. European Union and United States of America) are still the super power until the man of sin comes up from his own kingdom as the little horn.
Daniel did not interpret the little horn (i.e. the kingdom of the Antichrist) here because it was not shown to Nebuchadnezzar, and so he went ahead to interpret the Stone or the Millennial kingdom of Christ by telling king Nebuchadnezzar, “And in the days of these kings (i.e. ten toes of the ten kings which will take political name of United States of Europe or Europe League Nation) shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed, and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.” This is the coming kingdom of Christ from millennium.
DANIEL’S OWN VISION
“I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of the heaven (four spirits that operate in the heavenlies) strove upon the great sea (nations of the world). And four great beasts (super powers) came up from the sea (i.e. world or nations), diverse one from another. The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they (the Heavenly watchers) said thus unto it, arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads, and dominion was given to it. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue (the other beasts) with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns, plucked up by the roots, and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool. His throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire as a fiery stream issued and came forth from before him, thousand, thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. I beheld them because of the voice of the great words which the horn spoke: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed and given to the burning flame. As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. I saw in the night visions, and behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed” (Dan 7: 2-14)
THE INTERPRETATION OF DANIEL’S DREAM
“These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever. Then I would know the truth as of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, break in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet: And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before who three fell: even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them. Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High; and the time that the saints possessed the kingdom. Thus he said, the fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise, and another shall rise after them, and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the Most High and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws, and they shall be given into his hands until a time and times and the dividing of time (3½ yrs ). But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.” (Dan.7:17-27). God used the vision He showed Daniel here, to confirm the one he showed Nebuchadnezzar about that great image, and also to prove that China was not listed among the super powers. Not then and definitely not now, when you study the names of those kingdoms he has ordained to be super powers. The lion kingdom then according to Daniel was the Babylonian Empire under Nebuchadnezzar as portrayed by the colossal figures of lions, with the wings of an eagle, and the face of a man, that adorned the palaces of Nineveh and Babylon. It also corresponded to Nebuchadnezzar’s “Head of Gold” of the image he saw in his dream. Lion is the king of beasts while Eagle is the king of birds and so the combination of lion that has Eagle’s wings indicate “absolute monarchy” of Nebuchadnezzar and his conquering power or flight over the nations he subdued. For his wings to be plucked indicate that as the power of his conquest weakened the glory of his Empire began to wane. And it was lifted up and caused to walk on two feet like a man instead of four that a lion is supposed to walk with, and a man’s heart was given it while still a beast. By this act, it stopped using teeth and claws to overrun his enemies but intellect as a man. The “plucking of the wings” may likely be referred to as “the insanity of Nebuchadnezzar”, and “the standing on two feet like a man, and receiving of a man’s heart”, likened to his recovery from the nature of a beast and his attitude as human. I know that some school of thought may say or believe that the lion is Britain because her national emblem is lion and the Eagles United States of America as one that sprang up from the lion, but far be it because by then the Roman Empire where Britain and other European nations emerged from were still far from coming up as a world power and so Britain cannot spring up or give birth to herself.
The second beast in Daniel’s vision was the bear, and which was Medo-Persian Empire under Cyrus. He allowed his uncle Darius to oversee the affairs of the kingdom when as a bear and the second strongest animal after lion he was still devouring other kingdoms. He later governed Persia the bigger of the two kingdoms leaving Darius his uncle to rule the smaller Media. And this beast corresponds to Nebuchadnezzar’s “right shoulder and arm” that was silver, showing as silver is inferior to gold, so was the bear inferior to lion and Nebuchadnezzar’s gold kingdom superior to Cyrus silver kingdom. Don’t forget that Cyrus traced his roots from the marriage between Queen Esther and King Ahasuerus and he was the one that issued a decree for the rebuilding of Jerusalem during the time of Nehemiah.
Then the third beast was like a leopard that had four wings of a fowl while the beast had four heads. This was Greece or the Brass kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar’s “abdomen and thigh parts of his image” dream that governed the whole earth under the rulership of Alexander the Great. But the four heads the beast had showed that after Alexander the Great, the empire was divided among his four notable generals that governed the kingdoms of Thrace, Macedonia, Syria and Egypt. These were the four kingdoms that make up Grecian Empire under Alexander the Great the third world super power after “the Times of the Gentiles” began with Israel’s “seventy years of captivity”. And one of those kingdoms as we continue in this study, will produce the antichrist.
The fourth beast which was dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly that had great iron teeth, nails of brass, ten horns corresponds to Nebuchadnezzar’s iron legs of the image that had ten toes. Therefore this beast was the Roman Empire that metamorphosed to European Union of today. They began with Rome being their head, later it shifted to Britain or British Empire but she did not have a full control over other members of European Union. And so Spain, Portugal, Germany, France, Holland and even Belgium all colonized many countries indicating that Britain were not hundred percent in charge. Then came the Americans who broke the colonial dominance of Britain, had her independence through them and later defeated Britain and so other European nations including Britain formed allies with them. Apart from forming allies with the Europe nations, United States of America also formed another alliance they called North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). So the revived Roman Empire called European Union, with one of their brothers United States of America still remain the super power until the little horn springs up from the ten horns. Therefore the People’s Republic of China can never be a super power because God did not ordain them to be.
The Question Now Is Who Is That Little Horn That Had Eyes And Which Sprang From The Ten Horns?
If we must have to decode who the little horn is, we have to compare the first vision Daniel had during the first year of the reign of Belshazzar king of Babylon and the one he also received during Belshazzar’s third year reign. Daniel’s first vision was this one of the beasts in which the fourth beast has iron teeth, brass nails, ten horns and a little horn that had eyes and which came up from the ten horns, and his second vision where another beast precisely a ram which had two horns with one horn higher than the other and in which the higher one came up last. Daniel said in the interpretation given to him that the fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom or fourth super power upon the earth which shall be diverse from all other kingdoms or super powers, and shall devour the whole earth, tread it down and break it in pieces. The ten horns of the beast are ten kings which shall come up later, but another king which is the little horn shall arise after them and shall be different from the first, and shall triumph over three out of the ten kings of the ten horns and the rest seven kings will surrender to him thus withdrawing from their alliance with United States of America. The little horn is going to be the last super power before the Stone kingdom of our Lord Jesus and it is where the antichrist is coming from.
Another vision from Daniel reads:
‘Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw and behold, there stood before the river a ram (Media/Persia) which had two horns: and the two horns were high (Media) but one was higher than the other and the higher (Persia) came up last.
I saw the ram (Media/Persia) pushing westward (Lydia), and northward (Babylon), and southward (Egypt) [the interpretation of these dreams and nations are based on where the writer was when the vision or the dream was shown to him, and the position each of those nations is to Israel or Jerusalem as the main theatre in this historic panorama]: so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand: but he did according to his will, and became great. And as I was considering behold an he goat (Greece Empire) came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground and the goat had a notable horn (Alexander the Great) between his eyes. And he came up to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power. And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler (rage) against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns (Media/Persia) and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand. Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn (Alexander the Great) was broken (died): and for it came up four notable ones (Thrace, Macedonia, Syria and Egypt) toward the four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came forth a little horn, (this is talking of one of the four notable ones which is likely going to be Syria as where the little horn will spring up from) which waxed exceeding great toward the South (Egypt), and toward the east (Babylon) and toward the pleasant land (Jerusalem or Palestine). And it waxed great even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host (Jews) and of the stars (Saints) to the ground, and stamped on them. Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host (the Lord Jesus), and by him (antichrist) the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, (i.e. the Jews were given over for the transgression against the daily sacrifice) and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practiced, and prospered” (Dan.8:3-12).” Having connected the two visions of Daniel in the first and third year reign of Belshazzar king of Babylon, we have discovered that the little horn that sprang up after the manifestation of the ten (10) European Union Federated states likely going to be called the United States of Europe (666), and which fought and defeated three of their federated states according to Dan.7:7-8, is going to be the new Super Power.
And since it is coming out of an Arab Country like Syria, there is a possibility they are going to be in league like the Arabia League Nation (666) or United States of Arabia (666). This can easily be made possible as soon as Britain which broke off from the European alliance in order to continue her romance with America, decides to go back to that confederation with other European nations so as to form a political union called United States of Europe (666). They are forming a confederation to stay on their own and be a United political nation will weaken them as they will no more get military and economic support from United States of America who will continue their alliance with Israel.
This vulnerability will open the door of attack or serious war between them (i.e. EU formed political States) and the Arabia League of Nation or the United States of Arabia led by Syria and three (3) of the ten (10) Nations forming the Federated States will fall and the rest of the seven will quickly form another alliance with the Arabs so as to protect themselves. I have the witness in my heart that it is strong nations like Britain, France and Germany among those ten nations that will fall because of their already compromised state with the Arabs politically. Britain is already gone because almost seventy (70%) of the governance of their country are under the influence of Muslims (Moslems). As for France and Germany, they are halfway gone, almost to totally gone because of the manner in which they let their borders open to those Arab nations who were displaced because of war in Syria, Iraq, etc. Their time has come to pay the price for being merciful to sons of Ishmael whose swords are against every man and nation. The other seven nations that are not as strong as those regarded – world powers, will quickly give up their standards and surrender. Therefore the Arabia League Nation (666) or the United States of Arabia (666) is coming up just after EU confederates as United States of Europe and as the little horn, the next and the last super power through which the antichrist will come from as both their king and the king of the world before the Stone kingdom of our Lord Jesus will manifest.
The eyes that the little horn has are the eyes of the antichrist, the man of sin, a king of fierce countenance understanding dark sentences, a cruel lord, a man of lawlessness, the willful king, the son of perdition, the beast, the prince that shall come.
WHO THEN IS THIS MAN (I.E. THE ANTICHRIST)?
This question has thrown the church and so many theologians into great confusion for many centuries now, I myself inclusive. Some forerunners of the anti-Christ have all been termed as the anti-Christ and later people will discover they are not. Antiochus Epiphanes, Nero Caesar, Hitler, Napoleon and more recently some are even looking at Barack Obama. Well all these are as a result of not really asking the Lord to direct us to where it is written in the Bible because every move of God is in the Bible. Many renowned theologians know that the antichrist is coming from the Middle East or better still one of the Arab nations judging by the Arab hatred for the Jews. Some of us for thirty years now have the knowledge that he is going to come from Israel.
WHY DID I THINK AND SAY ISRAEL?
Daniel said in chapter 11:37-38 “neither shall he (the antichrist) regard the God of his fathers (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), nor the desire of women (churches and Christian religious organizations throughout the world which is to worship and sacrifice unto God)), nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate (in place of God Almighty) shall he honour the God of forces (Ammunitions of war): and a god whom his fathers (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) knew not shall he honour with gold and silver and with precious stones and pleasant things”. This shows he has link with the patriarchs (i.e. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) who were all Syrians, but himself will not be a Syrian. Why? It is because though the patriarchs including Jacob were Syrians, but God used Jacob to start a new nation different from where he came from so that He can covenant Himself with them as a holy nation and kingdom of priests unto Himself and for this reason, He surnamed him Israel. So the antichrist being a descendant of Jacob is coming from Israel. From vs 21-34 of Dan 11 is talking about a vile man by name Antiochus Epiphanes who ruled Syria and the antichrist will come exactly like him but from Israel. He did almost all the things the Antichrist will do but not to the level the Antichrist will do his as there were no Christians during his own time. So the Antichrist’s persecution will go global. Another reason I and many other renowned theologians are saying Israel is because when the children of Israel were planning on how to kill their brother Joseph because of their father’s special love for him, his dreams and because he was revealing their secrets and misdeeds to Jacob their father, Reuben the eldest heard it and delivered him out of their hands; and said, “let us not kill him”. He said further unto them, “shed no blood, but cast him into this pit that is the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him: that he (Reuben) might rid them out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again. And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they strip Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him. And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it. And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold a company of Ishmaelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt. And Judah said unto his brethren, what profit is it if we slay our brother, and conceal his blood?
Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites and let not our hand be upon him: for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content. Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver and they brought Joseph to Egypt” (Gen 37:21-28). This idea or suggestion of Judah to sell his brother Joseph was visited upon his generations for many years, though he had opportunity to repent with his siblings and make amends as you can see in Gen. 44:1-34, when he offered to be taken as a bondman or slave in place of his younger brother Benjamin in whose sack Joseph’s men hid his silver cup. Joseph had wanted to detain Benjamin and make him his bondman when his cup was found in his sack to test his brethren who up to this time have not discerned that Joseph was that their brother they sold. Therefore with Judah’s statement in verses 30-34 pleading that Benjamin be released to go with the rest siblings back to their father so that he will not die, but let him be kept as a bondman, Joseph was heartbroken and decided to make himself known to them having seen that of a truth they have repented and were sorry for what they did. Like I said earlier that this act was visited upon Judah as his two sons died without having any issue because of their wickedness. Therefore in order to prevent the same death befalling his last surviving son, he lied to his daughter in-law who in turn disguised as a prostitute and got Judah to get her pregnant without knowing it was her. In a nutshell, despite all the blessings of God upon Judah, Satan found his way again many years after into his tribe as one of his descendants dented his good reputation when he sold the Pride and real roaring Lion of Judah (the Lord Jesus Christ) to the chief priests and the scribes or better still the Pharisees to be killed like his fore father Judah did.
“And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him for they feared the people. Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money”.
(Luke 22:2-5). This was how the same spirit that manipulated Judah towards suggesting that his brother Joseph be sold to Ishmaelites so that his blood will not be upon them, also enticed Judas of the same tribe with Jesus to sell Jesus to the Pharisees so that they can kill Him thereby preventing him (Judas) from shedding the blood of his brother Jesus. Therefore when John the divine was describing who will be the man of sin, he made some striking statements as he said, “the beast that thou sawest was and is not, and shall ascend out of bottomless pit, and go into perdition” (Rev. 17:8). With this statement, I had thought and even preached that the same scenario will take place as the spirit that manipulated Judah into suggesting that Joseph should be sold, and which came out and entered a descendant of Judah with the name of Judas Iscariot to sell his brother Jesus Christ of the same tribe and country, will also come out of bottomless pit where the spirits not souls of those that died without Christ are reserved for eternal judgment, and enter another descendant of Judah again to be the antichrist. However during this much talked about lockdown when the Lord instructed me to do this write up, He showed me that the spirit which will ascend out of bottomless pit and who is going to be the antichrist will judge and not sell or betray his brethren. The message became very strange to me and I asked the Lord why? Is it not John the divine that wrote “the beast thou sawest was (and truly Judas was) and is not (by the time John was writing this, Judas was no more as he committed suicide) and shall ascend out of bottomless pit, so how can there be sudden change? And the Lord said, “it is the spirit that used them John was talking about and truly it is coming out again but will use another tribe to judge. He asked me, “doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?” “Will Judah produce both the Saviour and anti-saviour?” Before I could say anything, He said again, “Go to Gen. 49 and see Jacob’s blessings to his children and who he said will judge his brethren”. Wao-oo, I rushed to Gen 49 and when I came to verses 16-18, I shouted and I said, “Lord I have seen him-ooo, the tribe of Dan”. Then I was downcast and asked Him, “Lord why did you surname me Daniel when the man of sin is going to come out from the same tribe and bear the same thing?” And “He calmly answered me and said no, you are Daniel (God’s judge) but the wicked one is from Dan (Judge)”. I asked but Dan is still Daniel only that it is a short abbreviation? He said, “it is not, the full name is Dan because he can never be my judge, he will judge his brethren and the church who has rejected Me”. He now began to show me line by line from the scripture about Dan and his descendants and what Jacob said when he was blessing his children. He said, “Dan shall judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel and this is exactly what antichrist is coming to do to the brethren of the Lord (both in the flesh and in the spirit). Dan shall be a serpent by the way (Dan along the way will change to become the devil), an adder in the path ( a viper or rather a treacherous and spiteful person along the way), that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward (horse heels represent the strength of those that follow him when he turns to become a serpent or a viper). I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord” (Gen 49:16-18). The old man Jacob at a very ripe age of one hundred and forty seven (147) years concluded that he has waited for the salvation of God upon Dan. Why did he say so? He gave birth to all of them and had lived and watched all of them grow in his presence, kept on praying and atoning for their sins as a good father and the priest of his household. He knew how often he had interceded for Dan and his siblings, so he knew this attitude must surface or manifest in his descendants. And it really happened for after many years, the tribe of Dan allowed Jeroboam the son of Solomon’s servant to introduce idolatry in Israel by erecting false place of worship in Dan. All these and the sins of all other sons of Jacob that make up the twelve tribes of Israel, the blood of Jesus cleansed when He resurrected. And yet Dan through the antichrist is going to be found in this sin again which will make him to lose his name been among those that got inheritance in the kingdom of God as written by John the divine in Rev. 7:4-8. The tribe of Dan for producing the antichrist will be replaced by Manasseh the first son of Joseph, thus making Joseph to have double portion thereby taking over from Reuben the first son who lost his double portion for sleeping with his father’s concubine but still got a portion having been atoned for by the blood of Jesus. Even Moses called Dan a lion’s whelp in (Deut. 33:22) just like Jacob called Judah a lion’s whelp in (Gen. 49), so as Judah is a young lion that produces the main Lion of Judah, the Lord Jesus who will protect his brethren, Dan is also a young lion that will produce an opposite of Christ to fight and judge his brethren. Jeremiah the prophet summed it up when he said of Dan, “the snorting of his horses (the noise of the antichrist’s coming) was heard from Dan: the whole land (Israel) trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land (Israel) and all that is in it: the city (Jerusalem) and those that dwell therein” (Jer. 8:16). This is frightening for Israel, the church and the world because of the rage he is coming with.
But why this rage one may ask? It was because Dan being the first son of Bilhah the handmaid of Rachael and the fifth son of Jacob, lived a life of sorrow because of the shame the mother brought unto him and his brother Naphtali by opening her legs to his elder brother and first son of Leah Reuben. The treatment meted to his adulterous mother who was quarantined to put a check on her acts of immorality, the despisement, mockery and shame he went through in the hands of his brothers and people, made him to be cold and was keeping himself away from his brethren. He lived a solitary life and was isolating himself from his siblings. All entreaties by his father and intercessions did not make him to change. He had vengeance in his heart towards his brethren and was more comfortable with outsiders and enemies of Israel. He hated his father Jacob and his siblings with passion. He had only a son and never cared about having other children as he was negligent of his wife. Everybody around him irritates him, his few friends were outsiders who have no knowledge of this shameful act of his mother. This his attitude had great impact on his descendants who never lived up to its promise as they were not many like other tribes. They were unable to conquer much of the territory assigned or allotted to them. The areas allotted to them were Aijalon, Ekron, Eltekeh and Zorah in the west central part of Canaan and then stretched to Joppa on the Mediterranean sea. The Amorites who were the original inhabitants kept them confined to the hill country of Ephraim and Benjamin. Some left the territories allotted to them and moved farer North into an isolated city of Laish conquered it and renamed the city Dan. The tribe never supported other tribes and so other tribes never assisted them, and for this the foreign neighbours who they have things in common with, were their friends. Do you now see that Dan is full of rage and vengeance and so he will meet his match in the sons of Ishmael who have vengeance in their hearts also because of the way Abraham sent away their big grandmother Hagar and their father Ishmael.
In conclusion, Israel hear it now your brother Dan will judge you for seven years, together with the church who will be left behind after the man-child is caught up to the throne of God. He will gain prominence through Syria who he is fraternizing with. Bill Gates, the Rocker Feller Hauton family that controls the financial institutions in the world and few others will play an active role in the ascendancy of the antichrist after all they are Jews from the same place, but none of them is the antichrist. Obama established ISIS in Syria and was even paying the members recruited but he is not the antichrist as some are already ignorantly claiming. Look at how he comes to the throne according to John the divine:
“And the angel said unto me, wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman (The Catholic Church), and the beast (antichrist) that carrieth her which had the seven heads (7 hills of Vaticanus where St Peter’s Bassilica in Rome is situated) and ten horns (the ten federated states named United States of Europe). The beast (the spirit that incarnated Judas Iscariot) that thou sawest was, and is not (when John was writing because at the death of Judas, the spirit returned into bottomless pit where the spirits of those that died without Christ go to), and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (signifying that it is an evil spirit), and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth (on which the Roman Catholic Church is situated). And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come: and when he comes, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighteth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition”. (Rev. 17: 7-11) John saw it all and said it all too, the papal church will also plcw cay a major role towards the ascension of the antichrist to the throne that is why she is seen sitting or riding the beast which simply means influencing the beast. At the beginning, the beast takes off from Vatican city Rome, but soon moves over and takes Jerusalem as that has been the long dream of the papal church when they sponsored Mohammed to capture Jerusalem for them. And so what Mohammed could not achieve because Europe led by the Romans fought him through the holy crusade war when he began to deviate from their agreement, and because it was also not time for Jerusalem to fall for the last time, the antichrist will achieve within few months of ascendancy through diplomacy and because as a Jew, they will listen to him as their brother. John mentioned in vs 10 that there are, “seven kings, five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come”. In this, John was talking about seven notable emperors that were known in history to govern the Roman Empire both old and the revived one. They are Emperor Julius Caesar, Emperor Augustus Caesar, Emperor Tiberias Caesar, Emperor Nero Caesar, Emperor Titus. They were the five John said were fallen (i.e died), the one that is when he was writing was Emperor Domitian, he banished John to the island of Patmos to be killed by wild animals when he refused to die from all persecutions against him. The one that is yet to come is antichrist the Danite from the tribe of Dan in Israel. John said, “he will continue a short space”, and this means he will not rule long as his life will be cut short by an assassin as John wrote in chapter 13:3, “And I saw one of the heads (meaning one of those emperors) as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast?” One more thing John said that is still surprising is this, “And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition”. The closest understanding or revelation here is that antichrist was the seventh notable emperor but when he was shot by an assassin and died, and later resurrected through satan’s power, he became the eighth emperor but was the same person who was the seventh but a different spirit.
He will be a young man of thirty years (30) like when Christ started his ministry. He will become the antichrist or satan’s incarnate at the age of thirty-three years (33). He is a member of ISIS but he will join in the formation of United States of Arabia (666) or Arabia League of Nation (666). They are going to be the next super power taking over from United States of America, and forming a strong alliance with United States of Europe who are also full of rage and vengeance, who will pull out of her alliance with USA to rout the Americans, the Jews, the church and the rest of the world. Only the physical coming of King of kings and Lord of lords will destroy him and his armies. We should closely watch between 2023 and 2026 for his manifestation.
Now let’s see what he is going to do to all these cathedrals we build and call churches starting from the papal church:
“And he saith unto me, the waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns (EEC Federated nations) which thou sawest upon the beast, these (the 10 kings) shall hate the whore (the Roman Catholic Church and her daughters), and make her desolate and naked (they will probe churches starting from Vatican city and reveal all the atrocious things done by churches and fake ministers), and shall eat her flesh (confiscate her wealth and freeze her accounts), and burn her with fire (burn down churches, including those big cathedrals). “For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled” (Rev. 17:15-17). There is no argument about this as John the divine said it is God who has put this action in the minds of those kings to do. So those that are still wasting money and building all these edifice calling it the church of God, they will all soon go in flames courtesy of the antichrist and his cohorts.
Finally, the Lord is warning us for the last time to sit up now, don’t be too confident of this scripture that says, “For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are (spiritually) alive and remain (in faith) unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are (spiritually) alive and remain (in faith) shall be caught up together with them in the cloud, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thess. 4:15-17). This is one of the most deceptive scriptures I have come across because of the interpretation ministers of God or better still the Christian fold have given it. This is the trumpet meant for the spirits that’s why the dead in Christ who are now like spirits will hear it first, then those that are alive in the spirit by following the Holy Spirit wherever He goes, and remain in faith by doing every single thing the Lord asks them to do without turning left or right, will hear the trumpet and join them. So if you are born again, baptized in water and the Holy Spirit, even separated unto the Lord, spend all your money to support the work of God, suffered untold hardship, afflictions, persecutions, but you are not continually led by the Spirit of God or have hidden sins, you can’t hear this trumpet. There are millions of believers who are physically alive, engaged in so many church activities, even perform so many and very difficult miracles in the name of the Lord, but they are spiritually dead and are no more in faith. They will not hear the trump of God and nobody goes to wake up another that the trump of God has sounded, not even the husband or the wife. You may be sleeping or doing another thing when the trumpet will sound, so tell me how many of us are spiritually alive and fully remaining in faith by doing exactly what the Lord through His Spirit is directing us to do? God help us as we strive to do the right thing in the name of Jesus.
