Please call me a Christian Patriot. I did no work to earn that – but Jesus did it all for me.
Like the lies promoted by the Mormons and men’s church and government religions introduced by Nimrod 4,500 years ago, pagan christianity was originated by Constantine the Great in c 423AD. His god was JeZeus, and his trinity was Zeus (Godhead); Athena and Apollo. Bacchus ( Zeus) was molded on all his coins. The pagan Roman christians introduced Iesous, Greek for JeZeus, the son of Zeus, and John Wycliffe noted the Anglicized JeZeus as ‘Jesus’ in 1383 at the height of the pagan christian Inquisition. The Acts of the Apostles clearly showed the followers of Immanuel the Messiah were all “Followers of the Way” who John noted at Revelation 6:10,11 were all ‘murdered’ as heretics the same as Immanuel was. Matthew 24:15 notes the Lord’s followers need to ‘discern’ Daniel to understand who and what the “Awful Horror” is, ‘standing in the Holy Place’ which is essential understanding for our penultimate ‘time of the end’ that Daniel has clearly identified now in the + 7 1/2 Billion copies of the Bible. Matthew 1:21 is a complete ‘Lie’ unless you believe that Gabrielle a major Angel countermanded the major Prophet Isaiah noting His name at Isaiah 7:14 to this day, as given to him by the SUPREME CREATOR GOD and HEAVENLY FATHER who named HIS Son as “Immanuel” c 732BC. Acts 11:26 is also a complete lie, also unless you deny what the Apostles wrote at Acts 9:1,2; 18:25,26; 19:9,23 24:14-22 and 2Peter 2:1.2.3. Sadly, History has shown the ‘Christian’ religions have continued murdering their own people and others from 33AD to our day and more so in the last 100 years after Crusades and the christian Inquisition with 2 Christian World Wars with Christians killing + 80 million of their own men, women and children in the name of their god JeZeus, being Jesus in English from 1383AD. Obviously now is the time to clearly promote “God’s Kingdom” as spelt out by King David at Psalms 2, which very clearly notes the destruction of all of men’s religions with the kings and church hierarchies who are the real prostitutes of the beast Apostle John noted at Revelation 17:5. To ignore the 330 condemnatory judgements against Babylon with its trinities and phallic crosses with Xmas and Easter from Genesis to Revelation can only leave adherents to confront Matthew 7:21-23.
If you are interested in comprehensive Bible Chronology that relies on Daniel as the Lord admonished to “discern” I am more than happy to communicate notes I have been able to compile.
There are many names given to the Promised Messiah – some of course are primarily descriptive. Christians prefer to use the Aramaic name Yeshua (ישוע) which means “salvation.” Then there is “Yehoshua”, which turns into Jesus when you go to English via Greek Iesous, which literally means “Yahweh is salvation.” The Joshua in the old testament is referred to as “Son of Naue” to distinguish him from Jesus the Christ, as the Greek form of both Jesus and Joshua is the same. Where oh where did you dream up JeZeus and tying it to the Pagan Greek temples? Seems to me you are somewhat confused, frankly. The original Hebrew and Aramaic texts are far older than Pagan Rome’s brand of phony “Christians” who worship the Sun God. Furthermore, I know from very personal experience that there is indeed great spiritual power in the name Jesus Christ – even Jesus of Nazareth.
Thanks for posting.
Thanks for your comment on Immanuel’s name. In His first comments after coming in from His 40 days meditation and refusing to accept all the kingdoms of the World offered by the Devil, the Lord ( who like you knew his own name) read from the scroll of Isaiah who had announced his name some 730 years earlier, as well as the name of Cyrus. Today Cyrus is still Cyrus. Good to check the names you say He answered to in Young’s Concordance, along with all the names of the Apostles and the Heavenly Father’s true prophets who all had Hebrew names. When you check ‘Jesus’ it is only Greek as Iesous, so that his mother obviously never used it even as Matthew notes to this day He was named Immanuel ….”to make what the prophet had said come true”….which was not ‘Iesous”. Where does ‘JeZeus’ come from??…check it on Google along with Constantine. Every aspect of the Lord’s life was according to what the Prophets had written, so that is where I got His name from. You have readily woken up to Joe Smith… well keep going, because you are full on promoting the same god the Mormons and all the 500+ christian religions that now have produced the “bad fruit” documented to be “thrown into the fire” , clearly obvious over the past 2,000 years, which the King of Kings, who you say is not sure who his name is has published His Decree that agrees with Matthew and John that they will all be destroyed by Him as the King of Kings appointed by His FATHER…Psalms2. You will note it is not just the branches with the bad fruit but the entire “tree”. The ‘Jesus’ religions and nations are directly responsible for the mass murders of their own christian brothers and sisters starting with the Lord and all His Followers from 33AD and particularly over the past 100 years to some 260 million, and continuing. Simply in the Bible, easily understood, but not by pagan christians who are getting more concerned the Islams are rising fast who will avenge what the christian king Richard I did to them.
Richard wasnt a christian. he was catholic. he was before henry. True and I had started this; we’re not called to be ‘christians’.not anywhere in the new testement are we told to take the mockery name that the enemy had jews and mockers hurl at those who believed in the way of the Lord, and yes, Immanuel, the Annointed one. we’re called to be sons of God; the Lord is the first born among many brethren. In Acts ‘christian’ is the mockery term that the writer of acts mentioned was used to insult believers. Agrippa by the time Paul was in front of him, knew the mockery term that had had a number of years to be used by the devil and minions to follow those who were coming to and following the Way of the Lord, and some becoming the later brethern that Paul says will come and are now manifesting in this time, the days of Noe, as the Lord said to disciples when they asked what would it be like at His appearing; He was sitting there with them. the word ‘appearing’ was referring to the time when those in whom He would appear, as Sons, and Bride and overcomer, would manifest Him in fullness, but it’s the Holy Spirit in we the earthen vessels in this time, with the Treasure – the Lord – as the overcomer who overcame all sin and death in an earthen vessel, a bodyof elements. This is our identity. even when Peter mentioned the word ‘christian’ he didnt say take that name upon ourselves.
Recall that name denotes nature. We’re in union with the Word, we’re not in union with a term of mockery and manifesting that. we’re manifesting that which is overcomer, not that which the catholics stil have by way of their statues handing on the cross.
True , great material however on the Reinhard Gehlen bastard child.
Understand that the reich was/had a concordat with the holy see, still then and now looking to and for restoration of the holy roman empire. there now is a jesuit pope; the vatican is worried and now has a henchman at the top. the reich however along with jesuit witchcraft during and at the military end of the ww2, did a psi-OP witchcraft mindcontrol targetting on the Rockefeller, US – 1% to beguile them that we needed to fear the bolsheviks, a german export to russia on the behalf of the rothschilds and the rockfellers and other wallstreet kazar ‘jew’ money.
the nsa and cia were to be 5th column against america, britian and russia, to engage in the inner commercial and cultural war on the peeople an don the voters’ wallets to cripple those soceities for the benefit of germany and the vatican. notice that after german reunification, the US agreed to de-industrialize and many of the countries into which the US entered into the treason of ‘free’ trade are catholic countries. and perhaps also were former colonies of germany and/or were neutral countries in which the 3rd and 4th Reich had had activities.
The mindcontrol is so that the people including those among the elect – remember the Lord has to shorten the days because the elect are at risk for being deceived. those deceptions are by way of the lying wonders. We’re there. these are like the days of Noe. violence abounds. see what the Lord gives to us in Genesis 6 where he mentions about what the earth was like before He purged the earth using the Flood.
same as today. same attitudes of violence and vanity. We’re either like Noah finding grace in the Eyes of God or going to get washed away in the Flood. The relationship with the Lord is the beginning, but many will not inherit the Kingdom of God. not certain if they’d known Him but failed to address that which had them in gross darkness, but there is no mystery in His word about having libery with Him.
PS, on what they will waste money also is astonishing. Catherine Fitts while HUD found the black Ops budget, the trillion dollar perloining of the voters’ wallet for black and white operations or making certain that ‘white’ ops go to suit their creepy, evil policies…. but back to nsa wast – i think they have a DARPA mouse in my apartment. it’s smaller than a normal mouse. I think it’s a DARPA type of clone because it as petite as it is, and/or it can leap onto one of my cooking setting ups that I think ordinarily would be impossible for a normal mouse or a ‘sickly’ mouse of that tiny size to leap and clear the lip of a plate on top of a pot. meanwhile clones often age more quickly than the real thing. but then again, my living room, phone line and now I think my kitchen also are bugged. additionally they monitor my yahoo emails. a few days ago, emails I had sent to myself didnt appear for more than 2 hours and my email was very slow. when the nsa got the information that I was realizing my emails were being monintored and perped, suddeny the drag on my system lightened up and my emails begain flowing better.
we have to take the land and abide in the Lord to know that with the Lord and the Father we have victory against all giants and enemies in the Land. Like Joshua to boot the enemies off our land, off of our sun and rain, which the enemy is attempting to darken in our time. we have the power in the Lord Jeshua to take authority over the enemy that controls these people. they are children o f satan and belial. children of belial are violent, have voilent natures. children of light have nature reflecting the Lord and the Father.
Brien, you’re leaving out Grace.
I know Jesus Christ as Jesus Christ. others know him as Yeshua, and similar names.
the same Spirit bears witness between them, may the Lord rebuke you for this legalism. Russ Disdar for example, finds no difference between Jesus Christ, Yeshua, Yahweh, Jehovah, and i think he mentioned one other. But of course it is the Spirit of God in Russ Disdar that the devils are afraid of!
There are also many humans on this planet who know God, but not by his name. a casual search of various spiritual websites you will find testimony of the same Spirit driving the legitimate sons of God to repent of their sins and bear fruit in keeping with repentance, as well as kill the flesh. But without knowledge of “every spirit that confesses Christ came in the flesh is from God” these people who know God but don’t know him by name are probably still in the feeling their way to God” (acts 17:27) there are also Christians who are feeling their way into the Lord’s will for their life.. rather than directly asking. this is also where Grace comes in, because our righteous deeds are but rags.
This entire last 1980+ years since 40 days after the ascention, falls under Acts chapter 17 verse 30.
Thanks for your comments, however you are loaded with philosophy based on bastard Greek pagan christian belief. At best they had fallen away from the apostate Jews identified at John 8:44-47 following their god the Devil. Thomas, Bartholomew and Thaddeus took the ‘Good News’ of the resurrection of Immanuel the Messiah to Assyria where it was adopted wholesale, and taken all round the World by the “Followers of the Way” in their tens of thousands historically noted being gathered as the “First Born 144,000″ that was bigger than the Greek and Roman pagan christians combined who murdered all of them (Revelation 6:10). Paul confirms the extent of their activity ” this gospel has been preached to everybody in the world” Colossians 1:23…Paul wrote this in 61AD. The christian Greek nonsense with all the Babylonish trash of phallic crosses, robes, monstrance crap that sprung from the god JeZeus followed by Constantine from 324ADC. Check Google and the church of Adessa. Like the apostate Jews, who are still looking for the ‘first appearance of the Messiah’ the pagan christians have missed ‘His second appearance’ when He gathered the 144,000 by 1406. How so?? Read Daniel as Matthew advises in Matthew 24:15. Simply without Daniel you have no way of understanding the Lord’s Decree published at Psalms 2 in the 7 1/2 Billion copies in over 2200 languages for those who would be considered the “Other Sheep” who gain life from the King of Kings in the published “New Earth” society of Revelation 21:1-4; Isaiah 65:17-20. Hebrew 11:1 & 6 shows “No one can please GOD without faith”. Your reference to Joshuah is fitting as he showed he relied totally on his faith just as he had demonstrated by applying himself with Caleb and not following those claiming to be ‘true followers’. If you would like a discussion paper on the systematic analysis of the Chronology of HISTORICAL & BIBLICAL TIMELINE referencing Daniel and the Apostles, email me. As you have noted Joshuah, it is the case that the detail of his success is summed up by him when he said “Then get rid of those foreign gods that you have.”….. Note he was talking to GOD’s people not the pagan nations….. He explained it was not their spears and swords but the LORD GOD who gave them possession of the promised land, as Psalms 2 now reaffirms with HIS Son riding with His Bride being the resurrected 144,000 and the 200 million Angels noted by John at Revelation 9:16. Remember 1 angel wiped out the 185,00 troops of Sennacherib in 1 night, and hence the now 80 million total troops with the kings and governments can be wiped out in 1 day. Do not misuse the “Grace” you refer to, as it is rapidly running out, and all of us need to be taking note of “All Scripture” not religious mambo jumbo (2 Timothy 3:16) just as Paul wrote to Timothy of the “deceitful liars”. (1 Timothy 4)……who else but the pagan christians with their god Jesus Christ who the Pope you comment on worships as you do, as well as the 500+ religious harlots clearly defined at Revelation 17:5, as with the 330 condemnations in the Bible of Babylon, the source of “All men’s hopeless religions (government & church)” from Nimrod and his tower of Babel.
the Lord has not yet returned.
we are not yet under Hebrews 8-11 yet. that has not yet been fulfilled.
grace doesn’t run out until the Lord returns or until He places you under judgement. i have been there.
In a certain extent Hebrews 8-11 is fulfilled for the Christian. as a general rule it is sin for me to prophesy unless the Lord tells me to for example. sometimes he overlooks it i think, but to say the Lord already returned and the dead have already been judged, and all of the wicked were removed from the earth at his return.. uh, when did that happen again? i’ll have to check the corrupted history books and take a better look at that date you gave..
The Ashkenazim & Zionists also say in His First visit the Lord was not Immanuel the Messiah as prophesied by Isaiah and as noted for the time when He came for His “Little Flock” at Daniel 2,8 & 12.
\PART 2 REVIEW OF DANIEL’S PROPHECIES
Comments by Brien Goninan November 02
In approaching the subject of Daniel’s Prophecies we are admonished to have complete respect for what The Heavenly Father is about to reveal to us through His Holy Spirit. This means that praying for His guidance is required for understanding. Daniel has clearly set this pattern. In his prayers he was eager like us to know “how will it end?” 12:8 His concern was not just personal as he was deeply concerned for his people “LORD, forgive us. LORD, listen to us, and act! In order that everyone will know that you are GOD, do not delay! This city and these people are YOUR’S.”
Many have come forward with the explanations of Daniel’s prophecies, which were sealed until the ‘end of the world’…. “And now Daniel, close the book and put a seal on it until…  the end of the world. Meanwhile, many people will waste their efforts trying to understand what is happening” Daniel 12:3. From this verse those who would be given understanding are :  At the time of “the end of the world” , and further on in verse 10 “Many people will be purified. Those who are wicked will not understand but will go on being wicked;  only those who use discernment will understand” 12:10
CONSIDERING THE QUALIFYING FACTORS
 THE RIGHT TIME:
In our pondering Daniel’s comment that the time for the understanding of the prophecies he was given, as being “a long time before it does come true” 8:26….and to close the book until the “End of the world” [Daniel 12:3], we can note Daniel gave his prophecy some 2,500 years ago. In terms of recorded history it is reasonable to consider a “long time” has transpired from now back to the time of Daniel in the 6th century BC. We also note through history, particularly over the past 150 years the “End of the World” topic has certainly maintained its fear and urgency not just for religionists giving their dire warnings of ‘Hell Fire’, but also the catch cry has seen popular science promotions from worldly writers concerned with the destruction of Earth, popularised by Hollywood movie makers. Halley’s Comet tail, full of the poisonous gas Cyanogen was to end life on Earth as scientists had predicted prior to 1910, causing fear around the World. Daniel shows that at the “End Time” God would be allowing the understanding to be known to “many people”, where he writes “Many people will be purified. Those who are wicked will not understand but will go on being wicked, only those who are wise will understand.” Dan 12:10.
2,500 years ago in Daniel’s time, the Babylonian Empire was in power. Since then the World powers Medo Persia; Greece; and Rome; have risen and fallen. Daniel’s prophesy specifically names the world powers that were to come, hundreds of years future to his time in the cases of Greece and Rome. In chapter 8 Daniel had described the activities of world powers symbolised as “a ram that had two long horns”….”a goat rushing out of the west,….He had one prominent horn….I watched him attack the ram….The ram had no strength to resist…The goat grew more and more arrogant, but at the height of his power his horn was broken. In its place four prominent horns came up, each pointing in a different direction. Out of one of theses horns grew a little horn whose power extended toward the south and the east and toward the Promised Land.” Daniel 8:1-9. Such a vision then and now could only be meaningless without knowing what the animals represented. Daniel’s comment was “I was trying to understand what the vision meant, when suddenly someone was standing in front of me. I heard a voice call out over the Ulai River ‘Gabriel, explain to him the meaning of what he saw.’…..He said to me, ‘Mortal man, understand the meaning. The vision has to do with the end of the world.’ While he was talking, I fell to the ground unconscious. But he took hold of me, raised me to my feet, and said ‘I am showing you what the result of GOD’S anger will be. The vision refers to the time of the end. ‘The ram you saw that had the two horns represents the kingdoms of Media and Persia, The goat represents the kingdom of Greece, and the prominent horn between his eyes is the first king [Alexander the Great]. The four horns that came up when the first horn was broken represents the four kingdoms into which that nation will be divided and which will not be as strong as the first kingdom. When the end of those kingdoms is near and they have become so wicked that they must be punished, there will be a stubborn, vicious, and deceitful king. He will grow strong-but not by his own power. He will bring destruction on powerful men and on GOD’S own people. Because he is cunning, he will succeed in his deceitful ways…..He will even defy the greatest King of all, but he will be destroyed without the use of any human power.’ I was depressed and ill for several days. Then I got up and went back to the work that the king had assigned to me, but I was puzzled by the vision and could not understand it.” Daniel 8:15-27
We today can align the historical world powers, Babylon and Medo Persia; with Greece giving way to Rome as “a stubborn ,vicious, and deceitful king” with what Daniel wrote in the 6th century BC. Tying this to “the end of the world” and “the time of the end” it can be seen that it was the Roman general Titus who bought the end of the world of God’s Nation at the seat of Government Jerusalem, when he destroyed the Temple and burnt the historical records of the Jews’ land allotments that God had given the 12 Tribes of Israel through Moses. The judgement notice was given by the Lord ”Jerusalem, Jerusalem ! You kill the prophets and stone the messengers GOD has sent you !….And so your Temple will be abandoned and empty” Matthew 23:3.7. Matthew also added “Jesus left and was going away from the Temple when His disciples came to Him to call His attention to its buildings. ‘Yes’, He said, ‘you may well look at these. I tell you this: not a single stone here will be left in its place; every one of them will be thrown down.’” Matthew 24:1,2. The destruction of the Temple and National records occurred in 70 AD as shown from Google.
History shows Rome gave way to the Holy Roman Empire which in turn led to the British Empire; the League of Nations and the United Nations with its rulership usurped by the Anglo American duo that we now observe forcing it’s control over the nations it chooses.
 GAINING DECERNMENT FOR OUR DAY
History has shown that ‘the end of their world’ has occurred for the World powers Medo Persia; Greece; Rome, as Daniel had prophesied. It follows that for our day we can follow Daniel’s example to gain understanding from Bible prophecies of the present world powers.
The 8th World power is noted in Revelation 17:11 And the beast that was once alive [as the league of Nations] but lives no longer, is itself an eighth king who is one of the seven and is going off to be destroyed.”
World War I in 1914 from the Bible Chronology timeline occurred 2,520 years from 607BC when Solomon’s Temple was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar. The peace document that set out the terms for the formation of the League of Nations was the Treaty of Versailles which was signed on the 28th June 1919 by 44 member States. Australia; New Zealand; South Africa; Canada and the Irish Republic were made members by King George V changing their national status from a Colony, and signed the Treaty. The US neither ratified the Charter or joined the League.
1914 marks the time of the “End of the Gentiles” from Luke 21:24 (AV). With the end of the period of the “Gentiles” for the Devil to give World rulership to whoever he chose as noted in Luke 4:1-5 “It has all been handed over to me , and I can give it to anyone I choose.”. It follows that because the Devil’s time was up, the way was clear for God’s Messianic King to take control. The Lord’s action is significantly stated in Revelation 20:1-3. “Then I saw an angel coming down from Heaven, holding in His hand the key of the abyss and a heavy chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent- that is, the Devil, or Satan- and chained him up for a thousand years. The angel threw him into the abyss, locked it, and sealed it, so that he could not deceive the nations any more until the thousand years were over.” Christian religionists do not connect the Lord’s action to remove the Devil, using His power and authority that had been given him when he was resurrected in 33AD.
The Good News Bible gives weight to the Devil passing over his power and authority to revive the beast that had been wounded. Revelation 13 :2-4 states that the devil gives “his own power, his throne, and vast authority” to the wounded beast. John continues saying “One of the heads of the beast seemed to have been fatally wounded”. Apostle John in writing the Revelation that was given to him in signs , stated the Lord “sent forth His angel and presented it in signs” Revelation 1:1 (NW). Considering how Al Capone continued to operate his criminal empire from inside Alcatraz when he was imprisoned has similarity to the Devil giving “his own power” to activate the International beast, because he was imprisoned in the “abyss”.
Revelation 13:3&4 adds The whole Earth was amazed and followed the beast. Everyone worshiped the dragon because he had given his authority to the beast.” The invigoration of the first beast is then upstaged by what John describes as “another beast”. “Then I saw another beast, which came out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb’s horns, and it spoke like a dragon……..This second beast performed great miracles; it made fire come down out of heaven to earth in the sight of everyone. And it deceived all the people living on earth by means of the miracles which it was allowed to perform in the presence of the first beast. The beast told them to build an image in honor of the beast that had been wounded [first beast] by the sword and yet lived. The second beast was allowed to breathe life into the image of the first beast, so that the image could talk and put to death all those who would not worship it.” Revelation 13:13-15
Considering the making of the ‘image of the first beast’ after World War II by the ‘two horned beast’, it can readily be applied to the Anglo-American world power directing the formation of the United Nations which is readily seen acting out the role of the “image of the first beast” that was formed after the end of WW II officially on 24th October 1945.
Some 2,000 years after the ‘end of the world’ for Jerusalem and God’s Temple that had come under the control of apostate Pharisees, there is now much talk of the ‘Last Days’ of our present world in religious and worldly publications.
Hence if we can apply the same respect for the Heavenly Father that Daniel did and also appeal to Him in prayer, it can follow that with an open mind, and with our diligent search into World History that aligns with prophecies in Scripture, with God’s blessing, we can be led to being counted with “those who are wise will understand” Daniel 12:10
WHAT CHURCH RELIGIONS HAVE PREACHED
Apostle Peter has been grossly misquoted by “Hell Fire” religionists from where he spoke of “End of the world”. 2 Peter 3 : 4-7 speaks of how the “Old world was destroyed” by the Flood of Noah’s day. The point is ‘The World’ or ‘The Earth or Planet’ is still here. In verses 6 & 7 Peter comments on scoffers, who say “Everything is the same since the creation of the world”. Peter gives explanation of God’s activities “The Earth was formed out of water and by water, and it was also by water, the water of the flood , that the world was destroyed. But the Heavens and the Earth that now exist are being preserved by the same command of GOD, in order to be destroyed by fire. They are being kept for the day when godless people will be judged and destroyed.”2 Peter 3:4-7
Burning by fire results in total destruction. Gehenna was the garbage dump outside of Jerusalem where trash was burned. Murderers, and those considered not to be worthy of the resurrection, had their bodies thrown into Gehenna which was fuelled with sulphur. Apostle John in the Revelation clearly shows the meaning of what Peter is saying when talking about the total destruction of ‘ The Beast’ and ‘ The False Prophet’ who are both “thrown into the lake of fire” Rev 20:13-15 . Even ‘Death’ and the ‘World of the Dead’ are destroyed as it says “ Death and the world of the dead also gave up those they held ….Then death and the world of the dead were thrown into the lake that burns with fire.” Rev 20:14. As noted the Revelation was given to John “in signs” Rev 1:1. Hence “the lake that burns with fire” that destroys ‘ death and the world of the dead’ in ‘sign’ form clearly relates to total destruction, or simply, being reduced to a state of non-existence. It reasonably follows that the “the Heavens and the Earth” that existed in Peter’s time were simply awaiting “the same Command of GOD” as given by God for the Flood of Noah’s day, for their destruction. The World dominated by the offspring of Cain, ran for 10 generations. God only found Noah and his 3 sons with their wives, worthy of salvation. They were the offspring of Seth , born to Adam, who also had 10 generations to Noah. By comparison, God’s command was for the Flood to destroy ‘the sinners of Cain’s offspring’, along with those of Seth’s generations who did not worship God. The debauchery, or Sin of Noah’s day is likened to the rapidly growing International crime in the World today: “When the LORD saw how wicked everyone on Earth was and how evil their thoughts were all the time, HE was sorry that HE had ever made the Earth.” Genesis 6:5. Sin is understood from Adam’s accusation that God made him sin because of Eve. Thus he demonstrated his gross Arrogance, and instead of appealing for his wife being misled, accused her, effectively involving her in breaking the Law he had been given directly from God. It is the same arrogance and accusations that have become common by World leaders and their bureaucrats with their lies in our present time. Religionists by contrast blame the Devil for their sins.
The World that Peter lived in was the same as the materialistic world that Solomon showed was useless to pursue, compared to striving to do God’s will. The Heavens of Peter’s day, also frustrated by the Devil’s influences, was scheduled to be terminated by the War in Heaven fought by Michael and His angels against the Devil and his demons, as prophesied in Revelation 12:7 – 13. The result sees the Heavens being cleansed of the Devil and his fallen angels. The time for this was related to the aftermath of the observable increased Woe for the Earth. Such ‘Woe’ has been clearly marked by the increase of Satanic terror by the Catholic church Inquisition escalating from the 13th and extending to the 19th Century, continuing with murderous crusades and 2 World Wars, started and fought by the Christian Nations. Such is now plain observable historical fact.
It follows that with the Heavens cleansed, the Earth awaits it’s cleansing by the same Word of God. The literal Heavens still exist just as the literal Earth of Noah’s day does, as Peter has explained.
FURTHER COMMENT ON  BEING WISE BY DISCERNMENT
Amos the Prophet wrote “The SOVEREIGN LORD never does anything without revealing HIS plan to HIS servants
The Prophets” Amos 3:7. Hence “Being wise by discernment” can relate to checking what the prophets have said in the Bible, that now aligns with History, in order to gain a logical understanding of outcomes the Prophets noted.
At this end of the Age, we are richly, and primarily blessed with accounts of the Lord’s ministry on Earth. The Prophets recorded direct and general information concerning His human life; His sacrifice; His resurrection and His Kingship of His Heavenly Father’s Kingdom that reigns from the Heavens. The Apostles and disciples also recorded their real life experiences with Him as Immanuel the Messiah, fulfilling specifically Daniel and Isaiah’s prophecies relating to His name, and His one and only role as the Messiah , Son of God, the Fine Shepherd for the Followers of ‘The Way’ [Acts 9:1,2; 18:25; 19:9].
Rather than seek to predict fulfilment of Scripture , we are now able to ponder the dates and seasons or events, highlighted by the devoted Prophets, as related to recorded History. Such an opportunity has been deeply desired by God’s dedicated servants, and true worshipers, being shown by their requests for confirmation of what is written in the Bible. Hence we can Scripturally ponder the events Daniel and John recorded as we search for meaning, just as Daniel desired.
READING FROM DANIEL
Egypt and Syria
“The angel went on to explain: ‘The next king of Syria will be an evil man who has no right to be king, but he will come unexpectedly and seize power by trickery. Anyone who opposes him, even GOD’s High Priest, will be swept away and wiped out.’” Dan 11:21,22. Interestingly chapter 11 talks of the kingdoms of Egypt and Syria , while in chapter 7 Daniel is given understanding of his Vision of the 4 beasts as representing World powers, Babylon ; Medo Persia; Greece; Rome and England. Daniel lived at the time the Ram was about to appear. From history we see Greece overthrow Medo Persia, and it in turn was overcome by the “stubborn, vicious, and deceitful king. He will grow strong – but not by his own power. He will cause terrible destruction and be successful in everything he does. He will bring destruction on powerful men and on GOD’S own people” Dan 8:23,24 .
The point is Egypt and Assyria [first & second world powers], referred to in Chapter 11, preceded the World powers beginning with Babylon, referred to in chapter 7 [the third power], which Daniel had prophesied about.
So chapter 11 refers back to Egypt the first World power. From history, Egypt gained prominence from Commerce afforded by the lush farming of the mighty Nile and the accessible extensive fertile farm lands and animal kingdoms. The Nile was the target of God’s first plague when it was turned to blood. The second World power Syria or Assyria [interchangeable references] was historically prominent for military might. Hezekiah prayed for God’s deliverance when the Assyrians had taunted the God of Israel with Sennacharib’s great military strength. The result was God’s angel slew 185,000 Assyrian soldiers in one night. …See 2Kings 19:32 to 36.
Prior to Sennacherib’s army being wiped out, the King of Egypt lost his entire army when Moses listened to God’s instructions. “The LORD said to Moses, ‘Hold out your hand over the [Red] sea, and the water will come back over the Egyptians and their chariots and drivers’ So Moses held out his hand over the sea, and at day break the water returned to its normal level……The water returned and covered the chariots, the drivers, and all the Egyptian army that had followed the Israelites into the sea.” Exodus 14:26 to 29.
Thus both the First and Second World powers had their means of both Commerce and Military Might, that had sustained their rulerships, spectacularly obliterated by God. It can be noted that in both cases of deliverance there was no requirement of any involvement by God’s own people, the Israelites. Hence, the decimation occurring some 3,500 and 3,000 years ago in turn to each World power remains as a model showing the futility of underestimating the forces available to THE CREATOR GOD, and now His Son the King of Kings whose reign “Will never be conquered, but will completely destroy all those empires and then last forever” Daniel 2:44.
Hence Daniel’s reference to Egypt and Assyria in chapter 11 can be viewed as the collective power of man’s Commerce and Military might in principle to consider grander world events. We can be well aware today of the control the World Banks have over the World population. Likewise the massive military strength of the US and the UK who have combined their efforts for their published cause to fight the war of terrorism.
The combination matches the explanation of the 2nd Beast given by John in Revelation 13:11-15. “Then I saw another beast, which came up out of the Earth. It had two horns like a lamb’s horns, and it spoke like a dragon.” Horns in the Revelation represent kings or rulers. Hence the leaders of the US and UK uniting their country’s military forces for ‘lamb-like’ peaceful means of fighting the war on terror can be applied.
Churchill and Wilson conspire to sink the Lusitania
The sinking of the Lusitania, sailing from New York to Liverpool, in April 1915, is attributed to conspiracy between American President Wilson and Winston Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty for England, in the book ‘Creature From Jekyll Island’ by American research author Edwin Griffin.
The ‘Dragon like’ action of the pre-arranged action by leaders of England and America, resulted in the torpedo sinking by the German U boat, of the Lusitania, a British luxury liner, carrying 1,195 passengers, and loaded with 600 tons of gun powder, with 1,248 cases of shrapnel shells, as well as 6 million rounds of rifle ammunition which completely filled the holds of the lowest deck. The conspirators allowed no warning of the cargo of munition, to be given to the 195 American passengers, and the 1,000 English and other people on board, in order to create the hostility in the American public to bring them in to World War I, when the boat was sunk. The book contains an artists impression of an American woman drowning, while clutching her small child, in a News paper article accusing the Germans of the attack on the passenger Liner. The real truth being, the disaster, according to the US author, was the result of the conspiracy between the American and English governments.
Edward Griffin states “The British knew that to draw the United States into war would mean the difference between defeat and victory, and anything that could accomplish that was proper – even the coldly calculated sacrifice of one of her great ships with Englishmen aboard. But the trick was to have Americans on board also in order to create the proper emotional climate in the United States. As the Lusitania moved into hostile waters, where a German U– boat was known to be operating, First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, ordered her destroyer protection to abandon her. This , plus the fact that she had been ordered to travel at reduced speed, made her an easy target. After the impact of one well placed torpedo, a mighty second explosion from within ripped her apart, and the ship that many believed could not be sunk, gurgled to the bottom in less than 18 minutes.” Page 261.
So the “Lamblike” friendly looking combination of the “two horned beast”, easily prefiguring America and England, showed its real purpose as it “spoke like a dragon” to pre-arrange the terrorist plot to murder the English and American citizens who were passengers. The act was condoned by the governments of the Christian nations as a means to defeat the Germans, who the English claimed started the World War, and was thus justified by the “Lamblike beast”.
Looking closer at Daniel’s notes of his ‘Second Vision’
“In the third year Belshazzar was king, I saw a second vision. In the vision I suddenly found myself in the walled city of Susa in the province of Elam. I was standing by the Ulai River, and there beside the river I saw a ram that had two long horns, one of which was longer and newer than the other. I watched the ram butting with its horns to the west, the north, and the south. No animal could stop him or escape his power. He did as he pleased and grew arrogant. While I was wondering what this meant, a goat came rushing out of the west, moving so fast his feet didn’t touch the ground….The goat grew more and more arrogant, but at the height of his power his horn was broken. In its place four prominent horns came up, each pointing in a different direction. Out of one of these horns grew a little horn,  whose power extended toward the south and the east and toward the Promised Land.  It grew strong enough to attack the army of Heaven,  the stars themselves, and threw some of them to the ground and trampled them. It even defied the Prince of the Heavenly army,  stopped the daily sacrifices offered to Him, and  ruined the Temple Dan 8:1-11
As noted the Angel Gabriel in Chapter 8 shows the Ram is Medo Persia, and the Goat is Greece. The ‘little horn’ that grew out of the 4 horns from history shows it as Rome, the World power that aligns easily with :  the growth in power ‘toward the south and the east and toward the Promised Land’.  ‘It grew strong enough to attack the army of Heaven’  ‘threw [some of the stars of Heaven] to the ground and trampled on them.’  ‘stopped the daily sacrifices offered to the Prince of the Heavenly army,  ‘ruined the Temple
The strength and power Rome achieved is legendary, and the destruction of God’s Temple is well documented as being carried out by the Roman General Titus in 70 AD.
Rome’s well recorded effects on True Worship
“People sinned there instead of offering the proper daily sacrifices, and the true religion was thrown to the ground. The horn was successful in everything it did. Then I heard one angel ask the other [a] ‘How long will these things that were seen in the vision continue? [b] How long will an awful sin replace the daily sacrifices ? [c] How long will the army of Heaven and the Temple be trampled on ? Dan 8:12-14
“He will bring destruction on powerful men and on GOD’s own people. Because he is cunning he will succeed in his deceitful ways…He will even defy the greatest King of all, but he will be destroyed without the use of any human power. Dan 8: 25. Hannibal was outstanding as one of the ‘powerful men’ who potentially could have overthrown Rome, but he too succumbed to the relentless power of Rome’s consistent military might.
Rome as the World power to follow Greece, exhibited power that resulted in terrible “destruction on powerful men and on GOD’S own people”. The British Empire has succeeded the Holy Roman Empire which grew from Constantine’s amalgamation of the ‘church’ and ‘state’ following the Council of Nicaea in 324 AD. Charlemagne figured in the rise to power of the Holy Roman Empire. From Google the article “Charlemagne King of Franks and Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire [742 – 814]”, gives the comment “In 768, when Charlemagne was 26, he and his brother Carloman inherited the kingdom of the Franks. In 771 Carloman died, and Charlemagne became sole ruler of the kingdom. At that time the Franks were falling back into barbarian ways, neglecting their education and religion. The Saxons of northern Europe were still pagans. In the south, the Roman Catholic church was asserting its power to recover land confiscated by the Lombard kingdom of Italy. Europe was in turmoil. Charlemagne was determined to strengthen his realm and to bring order to Europe. In 772 he launched a 30 year military campaign to accomplish this objective. By 800AD Charlemagne was the undisputed ruler of Western Europe. The flow on of the religious expression of the Holy Roman Empire, finally gave way to the British Empire. As a World power, the rising British Empire applied the concept from the Roman Empire of removing the power of its kings to make way for the Senate it created usurping the power of the Crown. This has led to man’s ultimate power built on the Parliamentary concept, proclaiming Democracy as the ‘government of the people by the people’, and using it as the catch cry to support the glut of the conglomerate bureaucracies that have immerged in the Western World. Governments have massively increased taxes to pay for their own profusion, subduing the masses by increasing their burdens which in turn adds to the government’s control “But not by his own power”. Kingdoms, prior to the concept Rome developed, relied on the strength of their King and his ability to control his armies, which gave him his authority, and even his existence as king. The murder of the original Caesar and his subsequent usurpers, saw the Senate remain in control, unlike the rulership pattern of previous kings and rulers administering their own authority until they and/or their controlling powers were terminated.
The debauchery of Rome, as well as the Roman Catholic church’s Inquisition, are well documented, with notorious bloody history of wanton waste of human life, along with the worship of Greek and Babylonian ‘gods’, and man made religious idolatry with the worship of their Greek God named, Iesous Kristos, for Constantine’s god Je-Zeus being Bacchus the Sun god and translated into English, 1,000 years later, as Jesus Christ.
Considering the Questions
[a] How long will these things seen in the vision continue? The question is answered “It will continue 2300 days, during which evening and morning sacrifices will not be offered. Then the temple will be restored.” Daniel 8:14 The Bible is giving the direct reply to this aspect of the composite question, which also has to apply to [b] & [c] as far as the time frame is concerned.
In Chapter 8, the Goat, i.e. Greece, or its offspring ‘a little horn’, does not continue for 2300 days, and certainly not for 2300 years, when a ‘year for a day’ from Numbers 14:30-34 is applied. So the questions asked by one angel to the other in verse 13 regarding ‘these things’ have answers relevant to sacrifices in the Temple, and trampling on ‘the army of heaven’.
[b] “How long will an awful sin replace daily sacrifices?” It is more likely the 2300 years of the ‘awful sin’ is being referred to. Hence we need to ponder what is ‘the awful sin’ that replaces the daily sacrifices. The Lord clearly showed the Pharisees had replaced the pure worship of the Heavenly Father with their own religious beliefs that originated from the Devil. “You are doing what your father did…..You are the children of your father the Devil, and you want to follow your father’s desires. From the very beginning he has been a murderer and has never been on the side of truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie he is only doing what is natural to him, because he is a liar and the father of all lies….I tell the truth, and that is why you do not believe Me. He who comes from GOD listens to GOD’S words” John 8:41-47. The condition of the quality of the sacrifices, and the commercialism of the Temple, was exposed when the Lord accused the priests of the Temple, for turning it into a den of thieves [Matt 21:12,13]. This was around the year 33AD.
Apostle Paul also warned that the ‘teachings of demons’ [1Timothy 4:1; Colossians 2:8] would be taught by some people who had been followers of the Lord in 56 AD as noted in 1Tim 4:1-3 “The Spirit says clearly that some people will abandon the faith in later times; they will obey lying spirits and follow the teachings of demons. Such teachings are spread by deceitful liars, whose consciences are dead, as if burnt with a hot iron.” This shows people acting on demon “teachings” are clearly identified by the Lord and the Apostles. Murders by governments being demon inspired “deceitful liars” explain UK and US gun ships killing countless innocent Iraqis, while justice awaits the murdering nations in apostle Peter’s prophecy for “the day when godless people will be judged and destroyed” 2Peter 3:7. Revelation 16:13 shows the same “expressions inspired by demons…gather the kings [and their armies]to the War of the great day of GOD ALMIGHTY”.
Hence the ‘awful sin’ continuing for the period to see finality would seem to be well applied to beginning at the culmination of the debauchery in the Temple that bought on its destruction by God using Titus.
[c] “How long will the army of Heaven and the Temple be trampled on” Like [b] the trampling on the Temple became literal when Titus destroyed it with his pagan Roman legions in 70 AD.
Backdating the 2300 years to begin in 457 BC, according to the Seventh Day Adventists, to run out in 1844 leaves the problem that the cleansed condition of the Christian churches claiming to be God’s true representatives, or His Temple on Earth, fails when it is clearly observed that Babylonish doctrines of the Cross; Christmas; Easter; the Trinity; Idolatry of church hierarchies and their pastors, are clearly evident to our present day.
Actually adding the 2300 years to 70 AD comes out as the year 2370 AD. This opens the way for Bible scholars to reason together on Daniel’s instruction that the fulfilment would be “a long time before it does” 8:26 and “And now Daniel , close the book and put a seal on it until the end of the world” Dan12:4. To focus on the time period of ‘the end of the world’, we can go to Bible chronology showing Adam being created around 4185 BC, and Eve sometime after, with the two living in a paradise world for a period. Sadly, Adam and Eve’s world was changed when Adam broke God’s law not to eat from the tree of knowledge of ‘Good and bad’ when his lawlessness was related to Satan’s influence [Genesis 3:1-24]. The world that began is the world of sin as Apostle Paul noted “Sin came into the world through one man [Adam], and his sin brought death with it. As a result, death spread to the whole human race because everyone has sinned.” Rom5:12. The ‘Sin’ amounted to disobeying God’s simply stated unilateral law about eating a certain fruit from a tree in a garden that was abundant in a multitude of desirable fruits.
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT SIN ?
“SIN” is the famous word the christian clergy have screamed out to their parishioners in the form of :……..“YOU SINNERS !!…. The Devil is waiting for you in HELL !”, with the only hope for saving their ‘soul’ being the ‘paid for prayers’ of their priests; parsons; elders; etc. How does the Bible describe the beginning of “Sin” ? When Adam ate the fruit that was forbidden he was asked by God “’Did you eat the fruit that I told you not to eat?’ The man [Adam] answered: ‘‘The woman you put here with me gave me the fruit, and I ate it‘” Genesis 3:12. On the basis of Adam’s accusation, the history of christian churches male clergy have downgraded women in their congregations to a life of servitude to male ministers. Christian teachings show Eve [hence women in general] used the power of ‘seduction’ on Adam [hence puritan men].
What was God’s reply to Adam after hearing his story about Eve giving him the fruit ? “Because of what you [not you and Eve] have done the ground will be under a curse.” Apostle Paul also commented “Sin came into the world through one man [Adam] and his sin brought death with it”….”from the time of Adam to the time of Moses death ruled over all mankind, even over those who did not sin in the same way as Adam did when he disobeyed God’s command.” Romans 5:12 & 14. These scriptures clearly charge Adam for introducing Sin to our Human family.
The flow on from the man’s accusation of God is noted from what God said in reply about Adam’s direct action. “because of what you have done…. the ground will be under a curse.”. Carl Baugh PhD in Education, M.A. in Archaeology, in his presentation : “Creation in Symphony” from the “The Creation Evidences Museum of Glen Rose, Texas”, has compiled a video, with scientific back up to the flood of Noah’s day, and shows the break down of human society that had culminated from what Adam initiated : “Because of what you have done the ground will be under a curse”. Baugh refers to Adam in his original state as being in harmony with creation throughout the Universe, stating on his first tape : “The First Cause, Creation in Symphony and Life by Design.”…TAPE ONE.
By his arrogance Adam actually accused God being the cause of his sin, because of “The woman you put here with me”…. Baugh shows Adam personally made the discord that broke the harmony with all life and the vegetation on the Earth. His research also showed that the first man was so unique he was also actually “In concert with the Galaxies”
From the moment of Adam’s creation God intended to produce His human family, in harmony with the Spiritual Universe. “And GOD said ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea , and over the fowl of the air, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth….And GOD said unto them , Be fruitful, and multiply and replenish the earth.” Genesis 126 & 28 AV. Isaiah the Prophet later wrote “So also the word that I speak – it will not fail to do what I plan for it” Isaiah 55:11. Applying this to God’s intention for Adam to fill the Earth, it means that his role was to be the original parent. “Adam named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all human beings.” Genesis 3:20. Had God destroyed Adam and recreated a new man, it could only mean none of the human race, down through time to our day could have come into existence, as we have all come through the procreation process from our common ancestors, Adam and Eve, by means of the Man/Woman gene pool of our parents back to the original humans.
So it is death results from our inherited imperfection to the present time. King David spoke of being conceived in sin “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me…Create in me a clean heart, O GOD; and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:5,10 AV. Here, David was not saying he was conceived out of wedlock, as apostle Paul was later to explain: “Sin came into the world through one man (Adam), and his sin brought death with it. As a result, death spread to the whole human race because everyone has sinned.” Romans 5:12. Today, we as members of the human race, show general contempt virtually for all aspects of the Earth’s essential ECO systems, to greater and lesser degrees. David Suzuki commented “World powers are treating the Earth like a toxic dump.” It has to be obvious that the CREATOR GOD must now act to carry out His unchanged proclamation to have the Earth filled with people from “Every race, tribe, nation and language.” Revelation 7:9. God’s determination clearly states : “Soon the wicked will disappear; but the humble will possess the land and live in it forever;… and enjoy prosperity and peace” Psalm 37:10,11,29. Apostle Paul further explains how sin is removed from God’s family to live on Earth: “So then, as one sin condemned all mankind, in the same way the one righteous act [the sacrifice of GOD’S sinless Son] sets all mankind free and gives them life. And just as all people were made sinners as the result of one man [Adam], in the same way they will be put right with GOD as the result of the obedience of the one man [God’s Son Immanuel]. Romans 5:18,19 also Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6
Hence ‘the world’ that Daniel lived in, with people dying has carried through to ‘the world’ today. This then allows for THE CREATOR GOD to change ‘the world’ or system as He has stated He will, and is in fact proceeding to do so.
THE 1,000 YEAR REIGN OF GOD’S SON BRINGS BENEFITS FOR ALL PEOPLE
The period of the Millennial, for the Lord’s 1,000 year reign restoring paradise on Earth can be factored in, using Bible research and prayer even as Daniel did. Apostle Peter referred to the end of ‘the world’ of Noah’s time, and because of the multitude of Scripture referring to mankind living forever on planet Earth, it is appropriate to define the worldly system of things that existed in Daniel’s time that is to end. Apostle Paul spoke of people who could not believe in the New World and the Good News of GOD’S KINGDOM. “They do not believe, because their minds have been kept in the dark by the evil god of this world. 2Corinthians 4:4
The specific reference to the 1,000 year portion of the reign of God’s Son, with scriptural support for His rulership beginning in 1914, as the time to commence activities of God’s Kingdom is noted at Daniel 4:34 “When the seven years had passed’ said the king, ‘I looked up at the sky, and my sanity returned. I praised the SUPREME GOD and gave honour and glory to the one who lives forever. HE will rule forever and HIS KINGDOM will last for all time.” Daniel had told Nebuchadnezzar 7 years earlier “your power extends over the whole Earth”.[verse 22] as the ruler of the 3rd World power. Daniel had been taken to Babylon in 607BC after Nebuchadnezzar had destroyed Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem, the seat of rulership of God’s earthly power. Daniel’s prophecy for the 7 year gap of Nebuchadnezzar’s rule occurred some time before Babylon was destroyed by Cyrus establishing Medo Persia as the 4th World power. This happened after Belshazar had taken over rulership from his father Nebuchadnezzar, and is recorded at Daniel chapter 5.
Applying the 7 years interruption to the World powers of Babylon and also the seat of God’s Earthly Kingdom at Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem is a most significant application of Prophet Daniel, who Immanuel specifically noted for His followers, and all who desire understanding of the “times”, as He plainly states the need to understand what “the prophet Daniel spoke” in Matthew 24:15. It is then no fanciful application of Numbers 14:34 when applying “a year for a day” to note that 7 X 360 day/years [being 2,520 years] from 607 BC ran out in 1914, and saw World War I as the authority that he had told God’s Son he had been given. “Then the Devil took Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the World….It has been handed over to me, and I can give it to anyone I choose.” Luke 4:6.
With the Devil’s time up, it follows that in 1914 the way was clear for the beginning of The SUPREME GOD’S Everlasting Rulership to come in by His Son, the King of Kings, to last “Forever” as Daniel simply wrote. Christian religions preach Jesus Christ has not yet come and hence hasn’t begun his rule, as it is a rule of peace. Conversely, the Bible shows the King begins His Rule in the midst of His enemies, as in the case of King David. Psalms 2 is 11 verses with the Sub-Title “God’s Chosen King”, and shows how GOD warns all World rulers ‘their kings revolt, their rulers plot together against the LORD, and against the King HE chose ‘Let us free ourselves from their rule’, they say…..[God’s comment] Ask, and I will give You all the nations; the whole World will be Yours. You will break them with an iron rod”:[Psalms 2:2,3&8,9]. Apostle John wrote “The time has come to destroy those who destroy the Earth.” Revelation 11:18. The multitude of Scripture shows peace follows the destruction of the kings and their armies, as in Psalms 37:10,11 and Revelation 19:19-21. Hence Bible prophecy and Chronology, confirmed by History show the period from1914AD to 2914AD marks the time of the Lord’s 1,000 year reign or the Millennium as part of His Everlasting Reign. We can also note the 2300 day/years of Daniel 8:14 from 70AD, being 2370AD, runs out before the end of the Millennial in 2914, with the both periods clearly confirmed as noted from Bible Chronology and World History.
Actually the 1,000 year reign being considered from the end of the “Gentile times”, which is identified as 1914AD fitting prophecy for the beginning of the Lord’s reign, means 2370AD will occur 544 years [2914-2370] before the end of the 1,000 year Millennial of the Lord. From Revelation 11:3, the Heavenly Temple then has ‘the outer courts’ scheduled for inclusion to fully establish “New Jerusalem” [Revelation 21:2] in harmony with what John wrote “But do not measure the outer courts [to make up the environs of New Jerusalem] , because they have been given to the heathen who will trample the Holy City for forty two months [1260 days]”. This shows God’s Earthly Family born in ‘Sin’ because of Adam, [which will include all the resurrected dead] are able to be cleansed and purified from sin, [being ’the heathen’] during the first 456 years of the Millennial reign of the Lord. The 456 years is from 1914 to 2370 when the 2300 day/years of Daniel 8:14 runs out. This then means the remaining 544 years to 2914 allows for the completion of the ‘outer courts’ of New Jerusalem and the period of absolute joy, prosperity and peace for all the Nations of the Earth to the end of the Millennial Reign where John has said: “I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from GOD…..I heard a loud voice speaking from the Throne ‘Now GOD’S home is with mankind’……There will be no more death, no more grief or crying or pain” Revelation 21:2-4.
Such reasoning gives understanding for the activities up to the end of the Millennial Reign of the Lord, and shows the clear contrast for living in God’s “New World” as opposed to living in Daniel’s and our present ‘World’ where death results as King Solomon wrote “Yes the living know they are going to die, but the dead know nothing” Ecclesiastes 9:5
Continuing History of the 2300 years of the ‘Awful Horror’ of Daniel 8:13,14
Chapter 8 Daniel focuses on the power that grew out of Greece. Gabriel states “The ram you saw that had two horns represents the kingdoms of Media and Persia. The Goat represents the kingdom of Greece….The four horns that came up when the first horn was broken represents the four kingdoms into which that nation will be divided and which will not be as strong as the first kingdom. When the end of those kingdoms is near …..there will be a stubborn, vicious, and deceitful king. He will grow strong – but not by his own power. He will cause terrible destruction and be successful in every thing he does. He will bring destruction on powerful men and GOD’s own people…..He will even defy the greatest King of all, but will be destroyed without the use of any human power.” Dan 8:20-25. This king easily refers to Rome.
Causative factors of the demise of Rome included self destruct from within through it’s own debauchery and idolatry; the bubonic plague; gluttony and general decadence through its own Parliament with the failure of the Senate that it created. The article “The Fall of the Roman Empire Revisited” by Eric J. Goldberg [Google], gives the following comments. “Scholars of Late Antiquity (the period roughly from AD 300 – 600) have long laboured under the shadow of 2 monumental works: Edward Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (1787) and M.I. Rostovetzeff’s Social and Economic History of the Roman Empire (1926). With the publication of A.H.M. Jones’ The Later Roman Empire, 284 – 602. A Social, Economic and Administrative Survey (1964) and Peter Brown’s The World of the Late Antiquity (1971), historians of Late Antiquity began to argue for continuity, transformation, and achievement where Gibbon and Rostovetzeff found only decline and decay.” The article concludes “From the example of Sidonius Apollinaris, it is possible to suggest a correlation between the collapse of the association of Roman identity with orthodox Christianity and the Catholic Church. Just as the Roman Empire had withdrawn from Gaul, so now Gallo-Romans were prepared to withdraw behind the Gallic church and orthodox Christianity.” This can be shown to fulfil “He will even defy the greatest King of all, but he will be destroyed without the use of any human power” Dan 8:25.
As previously noted, from Rome the Holy Roman Empire, seeded by Constantine the Great came into existence. The mastery of Constantine amalgamating the ‘manmade controls of religion’ with ‘the power of state rule’ reflects the concept that originated from the first King/priest Nimrod, who coupled the introduction of religious towers or pyramids with cities to oppose the mandate given to Noah. “You must have many children, so that your descendents will live all over the Earth.” Gen 9:7 Nimrod’s opposition to God is noted here. “They said , ‘Now let’s build a city with a tower that reaches the sky, so that we can make a celebrated name for ourselves and not be scattered all over the Earth.’” Gen 11:4. History has shown religions have built ‘towers’ and buildings to magnify names of their multitudes of gods. Hence what Nimrod started has been seen to be prominent from Constantine’s time on as religious leaders have built themselves towers and conveniently used cities, with their concentration of masses of people, for easy control by their hierarchies. The concept has also benefited kings and now government bureaucrats.
The church-state amalgamation, and its godless persecution of the masses highlighted by the Romans, the Holy Roman Empire and the Roman Catholic Church Inquisition, has also carried forward the apostasy of the Pharisees who rejected the Messiah and acclaimed “We have no king but Caesar” John 19:15
History shows the Romanised religion, with its Greek and Russian Orthodox and Catholic/Protestant sects established its dominance forcing adherence to its religio/state suppression across the World which survived for over 1,000 years to the emergence of the British Empire. We now observe the Anglo American World power following the reunification of the rebellious breakaway colonies from England in the Americas. The combination is neatly seen as the second beast in Rev 13:11-14 “I saw another beast, which came up out of the Earth. It had two horns like a lamb’s horns, and it spoke like a dragon. It used the vast authority of the first beast in its presence. It forced the Earth and all who live on it to worship the first beast, whose wound had healed. The second beast performed great miracles; it made fire come down out of Heaven to Earth in the sight of everyone. And it deceived all the people living on Earth by means of the miracles which it was allowed to perform in the presence of the first beast.”
The present war on terrorism is headed up by the Anglo American duo or World Power doing the things Daniel prophesied to be performed by the 2nd beast “which came up out of the Earth”. He adds further “it made fire come down out of Heaven to Earth in the sight of everyone. And it deceived all the people living on Earth by means of the miracles which it was allowed to perform in the presence of the first beast”. The fire from the bombers at altitudes of 35,000 feet by the US in Afghanistan , and murdering innocent Iraqis with US & UK helicopter gunships, is an example.
It comes clearer as time moves on by what the Prophets, Daniel and Apostle John recorded, in reference to the last days and the end of the world relating to the beasts of Daniel and the Revelation, are most applicable now. It is also plainly obvious the “Awful Sin” in the form of Babylonish idolatry, is upheld by Christian religions claiming to be God’s true church.
The Temple the Lord and the Apostles spoke of
“I will make him who is victorious a pillar in the TEMPLE of My GOD, and he will never leave it. I will write on him the name of My GOD and the name of the city of My GOD, the New Jerusalem, which will come down out of Heaven from My GOD” Rev 3:1. “You are they which have continued with Me in My tribulations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom as My FATHER has appointed unto Me” Luke 22:29.
“Surely you know that you are GOD’s TEMPLE and that GOD’s Spirit dwells in you!” 1Cor 3:16 “Come as living stones, and let yourselves be used in building the spiritual temple, where you will serve as holy priests to offer spiritual and acceptable sacrifices to GOD through Jesus Christ” 1Peter 2:5
Further scripture shows the Spiritual Temple assembles in the cleansed Heavens, with Satan and his demons removed. Revelation 12:1-12 shows Michael defeats Satan, the debased ‘ anointed cherub’ [Ezekiel 28:14,15 AV] with his demon angels, to make way for the new administration of Heavenly New Jerusalem being the King of Kings with His 144,000 Kings as the ‘ first born…..little flock’. Luke 12:32 and 22:28-30. In the same way as Solomon’s Temple set the pattern, being built out of stones being cut and shaped , away from the site, so the Heavenly Temple has it’s human stones shaped, or symbolically ‘cleansed’ on Earth before being positioned as “a pillar in the TEMPLE of My GOD” Rev 3:12. This was the offer made by the Messiah to his Apostles and disciples.
Paul also states “Hagar [Sarah’s servant], who stands for Mount Sinai in Arabia, is a figure of the present city of Jerusalem, in slavery with all its people. . But [Sarah] the Heavenly Jerusalem is free and She is our mother.” Gal 4:25,26
These direct statements relate to God’s third Temple that is discussed in the Bible. The first was Solomon’s, destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar in 607 BC. The second was Zerubbabel’s, destroyed by Titus in 70 AD. The third and ultimate Temple is made up of the resurrected Messiah as foundation corner stone and His 144,000 associate ‘pillars’ the ‘little flock’ of the ‘first born’ as ‘living stones’. The three Apostles Paul, John and Peter, as quoted above, provide evidence of the make up of the New Spiritual temple.
The ruined Temple Daniel speaks of
“the little horn, whose power extended toward the south and the east and toward the Promised land. It grew strong enough to attack the army of Heaven….It even defied the Prince of the Heavenly army, stopped the daily sacrifices offered to
HIM, and ruined the Temple….Then I heard one of the angels ask another, ‘How long will these things that were seen in the vision continue? How long will an awful sin replace the daily sacrifices? How long will the army of Heaven and the Temple be trampled on?’ ” Dan 8:10-14.
Those who were followers of the Lord and were persecuted, even to death as He was, remained in their graves in the earth being “trampled” after “the Temple” had been ruined in 70 AD.
The time for the Lord to prepare for the cleansed Temple
Spiritual cleansing occurs when Sin is removed. Apostle Paul stated that Sin entered the World through Adam “Sin came into the World through one man [Adam], and his sin brought death.” Rom 5:12 The members of God’s Temple in the Heavens are the “Little flock” the Heavenly Father brought to His Son on Earth. The selected Temple stones, called the ‘little flock’ were all Adam’s offspring and as such sinners and ‘unclean’. Their ability to become clean was made possible with the Lord’s human sacrifice when he was impaled. As they waited in their graves, for their promised immortality in their new spiritual bodies, free of sin, they were trampled on as it were, by the “Stubborn, vicious, and deceitful king. He will grow strong – but not by his own power. He will cause terrible destruction and be successful in everything he does. …..He will even defy the greatest KING of all, but he will be destroyed without the use of human power.” Dan 8:23-25. The assembling of God’s Temple, with the cleansed stones, can be understood with the calling or resurrection of the “Little flock of the first born”.
Those that had been killed, after they had been ‘called’ or selected, are referred to by Apostle John at Rev 6:10,11 “How long will it be until YOU judge the people on Earth and punish them for killing us?…..and they were told to rest a little while longer, until the complete number of their fellow servants and brothers were killed, as they had been.” And then Rev 7:3,4 states “’Do not harm the Earth, the sea, or the trees, until we mark the servants of our GOD with a seal on their foreheads’. And I was told that the number of those who were marked with GOD’s seal on their foreheads was 144,000”.
Confirming the calling or ‘marking’ of the 144,000 to be stones in the Temple, John further states “I was then given a stick that looked like a measuring rod, and was told, ‘Go and measure the Temple of GOD and the altar, and count those who are worshiping in the Temple. But do not measure the outer courts, because they have been given to the heathen who will trample on the Holy City for forty two months [42 x 30 = 1,260 days] Rev 11:1,2
1,260 days is the period noted from the time of the Heavenly birth of “the child”.[Revelation 12:5] to the time the Lord used his ‘authority’ as the ‘Messiah’ noted at Matthew 28:18: “I have been given all authority in Heaven and on Earth”. Arriving back in Heaven with His new Authority after being born again at His resurrection, He sits with His father on His Throne as in Revelation 3:21. In His new life He fulfilled 1Corinthians 15:45 where Apostle Paul said He “has become a life giving spirit”[Jerusalem Bible] which also confirms Isaiah 9:6 noting His role to become “Eternal Father, Mighty God”.
Revelation 12:1-9 describes ‘Michael’s’ war 1260 day/years after sitting with His Father. Verse 10 notes when the ‘Messiah’ in the Heavenly role of ‘Michael’ goes into action using His ‘authority’ to throw the Devil and his demon angels out of Heaven and down to the Earth. Equating the period to years [applying “a year for a day” from Numbers 14:30-34, and Ezekiel 4:5,6] and taken from the Lord’s death in 33 AD, 1260 years later comes to the year 1293 being 67 years before the New Temple in the ‘New Heaven’ was established from 1360 to 1405 as per Daniel 12:11,12.
The Apostles and Disciples put to death like the Lord resulted in them being cleansed
Those questioning Catholic church doctrines were labelled heretics and put to death by the inquisitors of the Inquisition which grew in intensity in the 13th century, and continued through to 1824.
‘Heresy’ is defined as “a belief different from the accepted belief of a church” [World Book]. Immanuel answered “I am” to the High Priest’s question “ Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed GOD?’, and was given the death sentence for His ‘religious heresy’ or “Blasphemy” as judged by “The High Priest”, with unanimous agreement of the other priests.
By considering the fulfilment of Revelation 6:11 “until the complete number of their fellow servants and brothers were killed, as they had been.”, it can be seen the timing of the murderous Pope Gregory IX Inquisition operating in 1360 [70AD+1290] and 1405, which ties in with the “1290 and 1335 days” of Daniel 12:12, can be clearly applied to Apostle John’s statement supported by the Lord as noted “Then you will be arrested and handed over to be put to death.” Matt.24:9.
Hence, the facts clearly show, from the Bible and History, that being ‘put to death’ was required for being with the Lord and ruling as a member of the ‘Little flock’ making up the ‘Heavenly New Temple” [1Corinthians 3:16; 2Peter2:5] that administers God’s promised Kingdom of the Heavens. Apostle Paul confirms their cleansing at death “For since we have become one with Him in dying as He did, in the same way we shall be one with Him by being raised to life as He was……For when a person dies he is set free from the power of sin.” Romans 6:5&7. Paul here explains the purification of the ‘Little Flock’ or ‘First Born’ who have made up the 144,000 members of the Temple with God’s Son as the Foundation corner stone. After the Heavens were cleansed of the Devil and his demons in 1293 the way was made clear for the arrival of the live building blocks of the Temple starting 67 years later in 1360 to be completed in 1405, as Paul confirmed Daniel 12:12 in writing to the Thessalonians: “Those who have died believing in Christ will rise to life first; then we who are living at that time will be gathered up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.” 1Thesalonians 1:16,17.
Daniel and Apostle John have given us the Apocalyptic prophecies concerning the end of the present World system of things. The 2 prophecies, being read in conjunction give light to understanding. Religious authors from more modern churches appearing in the 1800’s have published a great deal of their hierarchies’ comments claiming to be inspired of God. Their books predicting fulfilment of prophecy, have had to be rewritten with explanations, claiming the “light has got stronger”.
So in seeking to understand the ‘times’ we are living in now, the approach we need to consider is to allow the Bible to direct us, checking the dates for events spoken of in Scripture with World history. The desire to know the meaning has always been the case with God’s people, and is directly recommended by God through his Apostles and His Son on Earth, Immanuel the Messiah. Both John and Daniel desired to know the outworking of what they had written. We are some 2,500 years from Daniel’s time, and just on 2,000 years from when John wrote the Revelation.
Both prophets spoke of the similar time frames of 2300 and 1290 days, in the case of Daniel, and [500 years later] 1260 days in John’s case, who also referred to the 1,000 year reign which can embrace the 2300 day/years of Daniel. Logic would say meaningful understanding would have to see each of these prophecies enhancing one another.
To have preconceived beliefs in what we have preached, or relied on for some years because of the millions of books written by our favoured church’s Oracles, who we emotionally believe are God’s faithful servants, can unfortunately deflect our reason. God’s Word plainly states “See to it , then, that no one enslaves you by means of the worthless deceit of human wisdom, which comes from the teachings handed down by men and from ruling spirits of the universe, and not from Christ” Col 2:8. “They know GOD, but they do not give HIM the honour that belongs to HIM, nor do they thank HIM. Instead, their thoughts have become complete nonsense, and their empty minds are filled with darkness.” Rom 1:21
Re Brien’s last long comment: I am sincerely touched by your passion, but it reads like a combination of:
–Watchtower cult teaching that “ALL other Christian religions are false/pagan,” etc.; no hell fire/total annihilation, etc.
–Irwin Baxter (historicist+post-trib)
–Hebrew Roots Movement (Judaizers, must use Hebrew names, etc.)
–Replacement Theology (the body of Christ became/turned into Ancient Israel, etc.)
The greatest thing I learned after many years of misapplying scripture was the so simple admonition to always read scripture IN CONTEXT:
>> WHO was doing the talking?
>> & TO WHOM were they talking?
>> & WHAT was the subject of the context?
Asking yourself those simple questions when reading scriptures will cut right through the ball of confusion & any seemingly conflicts/contradictions, & things will become oh so clear.
Nothing makes up for keeping a humble heart and being able to take the Lord’s rebuke.
I read about 10% of what he typed and gave up, I don’t think anything that man reads on the internet is going to wake him up out of his deception.. Jesus has not yet returned!
A careful eye would note that I condemned myself by stating Hebrews 8-11 is fulfilled in part.
and that is why, Scripture is a double edged sword.. you use it on someone else you’re going to find it used on you.
