Signs Of The End Of The End (MA01)

Mat 24:3-4  Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you."

At the turn of the last decade before the end of the Millennium when some Christians were expecting the Lord to come back, suddenly Iraq attacked and then annexed Kuwait in August 1990, causing US and the collision forces of UN to liberate Kuwait by March 1991. At that time there were more than 25 serious civil wars or intrusions worldwide. This war kept the Dispensationalist on track of Rapture by end of the Millennium. Our Lord warned that the first sign of end time are false Christs and not wars.

In 1993 US President Clinton officiated the signing of the PLO-Israel Peace Treaty, which happened to be seven years before the end of the Millennium. Immediately after this peace treaty, a huge earthquake in India killed tens of thousands followed by the huge earthquake in Los Angeles causing more than US$ 4-15B damage. These events kept Christians to be godly for fear of missing Rapture.

Until the end of the Millennium, Christians in general were godly and obedient to God's word.
When Rapture was no event, but the destruction of the World Trade Centre in September 2001 and the subsequent attack of Afghanistan in October kept many Christians on the alert. On suspicion of having WMD, US with UK invaded and conquered Iraq by May 2003.

1John 2:19  They (antichrists) went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

By then the faith of Rapture being at the door was over, and the sons of the devil (tares) started to reveal themselves. By the end of 2003, Gene Robinson a gay priest instead of being removed, was elected the Bishop of New Hampshire, USA by 63 bishops of the Episcopal Church.

Sodomy is an abomination to the Lord and a sin leading to death and this was the start of the defilement of His Church. This obvious sign clearly showed that the end of the age had started and the deceptions of the false Christs as warned by our Lord had begun.

Covetous televangelists began their wicked schemes of robbing the congregations by lies, false miracles, deceptions, etc. Faithless pastors and church leaders started to build their own personal Empires by robbing and hoarding God's money meant for His ministries. Some invented 'New movements of the Holy Spirit', which are obvious lies;

Howling like a wolf

Mat 7:15  "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves."

Hissing as a serpent or snake

Rev 12:9a  So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world;

Barking as a dog

Rev 22:15  But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

2Cor 11:13-15  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

Brethren, beware of these false Christs who come as 'anointed apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers' but in reality they are ministers of the devil.

Many Will Be Deceived (MA02)

Mat 24:4-5  And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many."
 
Where are the shepherds and watchmen of God that so many Christians will be deceived?

In 1990, Christians were excited in end times for many expected Rapture at the end of 6000 years of man's history. Unfortunately, as usual, the famous and anointed teachers, who were unlearned in end times, caused more confusions and could not satisfy their hunger for knowledge of end time. So they believe every type of doctrine for they want to please God.

Dan 9:27a  Then he (Antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (7 years);
In 1993 when the PLO-Israel Peace Treaty was signed, Christians were so excited that they did not realize that this treaty was an abomination. With one stroke, President Bill Clinton destroyed the bible as the word of God and reduced Yahweh and the OT to myth.

In 1993: Clinton signs "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," which allows gay men and women to serve in the armed services if they keep their sexuality a secret.

1Cor 5:6  Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
'Love the sinner but hate the sin' was a quote by Mahatmat Gandhi. This was widely taught to love the Sodomites (gays), resulting in many Christians today, not only approve sodomy but also practice it.

Rev 4:10-11  the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: "You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created."

Whenever we worship or pray to God, Who is holy, we must revere Him by bowing down to Him in the privacy of our room.

The counterfeit *'Move of the Holy Spirit'* worships:-

  • In 1994 at the Toronto (blessing) Airport Vineyard church and also;
  • In 1995, at Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, Florida,

reduced the worship of God to rowdy and noisy animal-like behaviour, jumping around in zoos. With one stroke again, this type of abominable worships defiled His churches and destroyed Christian's reverence for Him. Thank God that in such situations God will not be present to witness/receive these abominable worships.

2Pet 2:12-14  But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.

Here we have those depraved pastors, televangelists, etc. (all antichrists) preaching the coming of Jesus to frighten godly Christians to give generously.

Mat13:24-25  Another parable He put forth to them, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.

Since all attentions were focused on end times, Christians were not aware of heresies (slept) by depraved pastors (antichrists). Because godly Christians love to please God, they will accept all these new teachings (heresies).

Deception - The Beast (MA03)

Rev 17:10  There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time.

The 5 former conquerors of Israel:-

  1. Egyptian
  2. Assyrian
  3. Babylonian
  4. Persian
  5. Grecian

Note: The 6th. conqueror (during the writing of the book of Rev) were the Roman; the 7th. conqueror of Palestine (Israel) were the Arab-Muslims (Islam).

Israel has been a nation since 1948 AD

Rev 17:11  The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going into perdition.

The 8th conqueror of Israel (after being a nation again) will be the beast, who is also of the 7th (Islam). He is the Antichrist, who will go to perdition.

Dan 11:41a  He (king of the North) shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown;

The king of the North (beast) will be the 8th conqueror of Israel (the glorious land).

Dan 11:36  "Then the king (king of the North) shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done."

The beast (king of the North) is the Antichrist, the man of sin and the son of prediction.

2Thess 2:3  Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

After the death of Alexander the Great, the Grecian Empire was divided into 4 kingdoms. The king of the North controlled the former Persian Empire comprising of Iran (Persia), Iraq, southern Turkey, Syria and Lebanon. These are the countries in many civil conflicts and wars, where the Shia are gaining control of the whole region to eventually form the 'king of the North' or Persian Empire again.

2Thess 2:9-10  The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, 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.

Always bear in mind that the ulterior motive of Satan is to destroy our faith in our Lord Jesus and in His words, promises, teachings, and prophecies so that he can destroy us. He normally tempt us with heresies and the things of the world, resulting in many depraved, covetous, worldly and carnal Christians, pastors, leaders, prophets and televangelists landing themselves in eternal damnation.

1John 2:15-16  Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-is not of the Father but is of the world.

Brethren, don't ever pray for your material blessings or prosperity but your obedience and submission to His commands, will and words with joy. If God blesses you with prosperity, then you are already serving in His ministry of helps, compassion, giving and mercy to the poor, needy, destitute, strangers, widows, orphans, His various ministries such as mission, charitable homes, etc.
