Last night as I had drifted off to sleep I was awoken by a strong feeling of panic. As I prayed the LORD began to calm my spirit and I laid my head back on my pillow and drifted off as I mumbled the prayer for the LORD to show me what this fear was and what I needed to know. What transpired next was nothing short of an evening of nightmarish dreams, racing mind and a broken heartache when I awoke.

In my dream my husband and I along with our family and several friends from my lifetime were standing around outside. I know it bounced from hotels to cars to stores, but what I strongly remember was looking up and seeing airstrikes coming against us. In the sky I just remember seeing blimps that signified war.  I remember looking at my husband and saying we are at war. I have no idea how long this portion of my dream continued on. I do remember that at some point I found myself caught up in the knowledge that a large number of Muslim men with connections to ISIS had been released into the US and that they were there to attack us. So many people were running in fear and I knew what to say to them, but at the same time I was left with a ground view of watching these men stand around and plot this attack that they were planning on the ground.

Even still as Daniels 4th Kingdom is rising and Isaiah 17 and Ezekial 38 draw closer, I will keep watching and praying and trusting that the LORD who is in control of all things will use all of this for His glory!

Testing the Spirits

Did you know that there are only two people that Scripture ever references as being sons of perdition and are literally indwelt by Satan? The Anti-Christ and Judas Iscariot.

The Bible first records this description of Judas:

John 13:21-28
21 When Jesus had said these things, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me.” 22 Then the disciples looked at one another, perplexed about whom He spoke. 23 Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. 24 Simon Peter therefore motioned to him to ask who it was of whom He spoke. 25 Then, leaning back on Jesus’ breast, he said to Him, “Lord, who is it?” 26 Jesus answered, “It is he to whom I shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped it.” And having dipped the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 27 Now after the piece of bread, Satan entered him. Then Jesus said to him, “What you do, do quickly.” 28 But no one at the table knew for what reason He said this to him. (NKJ)
It also records for us another detail about Judas in the Gospel of John
John 17:12
12 “While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. (NKJ)
Let’s compare these Scriptures to what the Bible has to tell us in regards to the Anti-Christ.
II Thessalonians 2:1-4
1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 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, 4 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. (NKJ)
Now, knowing this fact about the one who betrayed Jesus during His first coming and the one who will betray Him up until His second coming, it would only make sense that they would both be motivated by the same agenda and similar tactics. Why? Because the spirit the led Judas is the same spirit of the Antichrist.
That being said, we could also assume that their very tactics and arguments would also produce the same results.
Because Judas was a type of antichrist and because 1 John 2:18 tells us that the spirit of antichrist has been around in many since then, let’s take a look at some of the behaviors and signs to see what we will notice about the Antichrist and those who takes captive to do his will.
Before we look at the evidence of Judas’ life, we need to understand the spirit and the agenda that will be prevalent during the rise of the Antichrist to power. The coming of the lawless one (Antichrist) is according to the working of Satan with all power, signs (miracles), and lying wonders”              (2 Thessalonians 2:9)

So, the Antichrist will do what Jesus refused to do in the wilderness, bow down and worship Lucifer. Because he does this he is given temporary power over the kingdoms of this world and that power includes the power to deceive, which is why Jesus warned His disciples in Matt 24:4,  “Watch out that no one deceives you.” Satan’s whole goal through the use of the Antichrist and his seed is to lead as many people to worship him as God and even more importantly to their destruction, just as he did with Judas.

What actions can we note from Judas Iscariots life and the spirit that led him and how that will resemble the spirit of Antichrist in these last days? Well first we need to notice that Judas never referred to Jesus as LORD only as Rabbi, meaning teacher (Matt 26:25 and 26:49-50).  This gives us insight into the fact, that while Judas was part of the inner 12 and to the outside world looked like a follower of Christ, his heart was never really surrendered to Him and he could not accept His divinity or lordship. The first fruit we notice when testing the spirits is that while it may follow God and even acknowledge Him, it never submits to His authority or will. This is why James writes in his letter in chapter 2: even the demons believe and tremble. Such will be the fruit of the Antichrist and those who follow after his ways.

Next we learn from the gospel of Mark 14 that Judas had a perceived concern for the poor and he loved to vocalize it. So much so that he tried to convince others to join him in his rebellious, socialistic agenda for “good” and he was the most passionate of them all for the cause. Lamenting over the choice that this woman made for how to use her OWN bottle of perfume, the Judas spirit needed to legislate or mandate what she should do with it. To the others it seems like such a noble social justice cause.

The problem is his appearance of concern for the poor was really only a cover for covetousness (greed). We can be certain that the Antichrist will carry forth this same outward agenda and garner as many followers to support him, while the reality is the money will only be used to fuel the power and greed of his own pocket and those closest to him. The poor will always live among us as Jesus declared, but the wicked will continue to do wickedly.

Finally we note that Judas himself seemed to not only desire strong political power and control but that he himself was willing to community organize for his agenda and meet in secret to accomplish whatever was going to benefit his pocket (Matt 26). He first starts by following Jesus, apparently believing that Jesus is a political ruler coming to set Israel free from Roman occupation, but when he discovers that Jesus is instead teaching that he is going to die for Israel, he becomes less than ecstatic about Jesus’ mission and instead agrees to rid the world of Him.

As of midnight tonight “change” is coming that will put another piece of the puzzle into place for Daniels beast kingdom and the one who will control all the “change” he brings. Why is it so important all of a sudden to surrender any control of our Internet to a global body? Lest we link arms with the world and sing our peace and security song, let me assure you it’s not headed in that exact direction. Instead the bible warns us that we are rushing headlong for destruction and persecution. Tonight, when the clock strikes midnight, we will just be another step closer.

 

 

What is the Caliphate and how does it play in to Daniel’s 4th Kingdom and the leader that is going forth conquering and to conquer. We are going to spend some time digging in to this study, but, we have to start from the beginning. First, what is the Caliphate and what importance does it play in history?

The Ottoman Empire started in what is now Turkey and reached out to parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia. Its primary purpose was to gain land and to spread the Islamic teachings of its rulers. They were the longest continuous dynasty in history ruling from 1301 to 1922mcd_mwh2005_0618377115_p353_f01

Please note: This article is not about how the trumpet has sounded yet, but that the army has begun to gather itself together for that day of battle

 

Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone. 18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed—by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths. 19 For their power[a] is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm.

20 But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk.

 

Because we live in an age where grace and love have been redefined and cheapened, I thought it best to look to Scripture to find out what that looks like in a world full of sin and hypocrisy. It seems in this ever growing age of tolerance and church growth tactics and kumbaya love that when you have a response of righteous anger or passionate frustration that the world and those who are trying to make friendship with it lash out at you and tell you that you are in fact not being loving or reflecting God. Let’s take a look at a few examples of righteous anger and frustration in the Bible and you decide which ones are from those who are following God and those who are not.

 

And Jesus entered the temple[a] and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. 13 He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.” (Matt 21:12-13)

But when John rebuked Herod the tetrarch because of his marriage to Herodias, his brother’s wife, and all the other evil things he had done, 20 Herod added this to them all: He locked John up in prison. (Luke 3:19-20)

But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages. (John 12:4-5)

The first 2 scriptures we looked at today focus on men or were angry at sin. That anger caused them, not to hurt others, but to speak honestly with them about the danger of their sins. At the root of this was their desire to please God and to see others in a right standing with Him. Neither one was received well by the public though. The third scripture we look at, shows a man who is angry, not over sin, but his own opinion of what he thinks should be done with the perfume that belonged to someone else. In essence, he has a socialist agenda here and yet the money was never going to make it to the poor if it was filtered through his hands, but to his own pocket. At the root of this was a desire to control someone else and gain what his heart really desired. In the process of this anger, he tried to incite others: Matthew 26:8 says- But the disciples were indignant when they saw this, and said, “Why this waste?

While Jesus and John and others showed anger at times, they did so, not by bringing harm to others, but truth. Judas on the other had showed his anger through his opinion and trying to sound loving and concerned. In the end the question is…whose righteous anger was pleasing to God and was rooted in a true motive of love?

I find more than ever that the enemy is still about his same old business of using us to rebel against God’s truth and limits. Ever since the Garden (which was Satan’s equivalent of the Utopian state of existence) he has caused us to doubt and rebel against God’s very words and promises by instead offering us something far greater. In the end we always find out that it was merely a lie to ultimately destroy us, but none-the-less it is always packaged, not as direct opposition to God, but as being better for us and making us more like God.

Because the final world kingdom (spoken of by the prophet Daniel) is now rising, we can be sure that history is repeating itself and that Satan’s tactics have not changed, only the people that will play in to his deception.

Rev 13:1-2 tells us, And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Satan, who took control and gained the deed and the power over the earth back in the garden is still in a battle against God and His children. While he has been defeated at the cross over who he can control and separate from God forever, he still has power and will not relent until God regains the title deed back to the earth and cast him and his followers into the lake of fire. Because Satan knows his time is short and he can not accept his fate, he will hand his power over to a leader and rulers over this final kingdom to try and destroy all the God has established. Let’s take a look at how he deceives and tries to cause us to act with rebellion and hatred towards God, but thinking we are actually becoming better human beings for it.

Gods curses and laws to us                          Satan’s plan and our rebellion

1.God made them male and female                   No. There should be no gender

2.Cursed is the ground because of you;  No. We will create things that make toil

painful toil you will eat from it all the days        easier or we will force others to work

3. It will produce thorns and thistles for you  No. Let’s GMO it up! WE will produce it

4. I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth      No. We will just use drugs to reduce pain

5. Your desire will be for your husband and he  No. We’ll create Feminism. No man will

will rule over you                                                          rule over me.

6. You shall have no other Gods before Me         No. We will have religious tolerance

yoke with them through prayers and works

7. You shall not make a carved image                No. We like those things in religion.

8. You shall not take the name of your God       No. We are fine with that in music and

in vein.                                                     movies. We just ignore it or laugh, its normal

9. You shall not murder                             No. We will define what murder is and

if you really even have life to begin with.

10. You shall not commit adultery               No. We should be able to leave our spouse

and be with who makes us happy.

11. You shall not steal                               No. We will legislate how we steal from

people.

12.You shall not bear false witness                          No. That’s pretty normal in politics so we

will just overlook it or justify it.

13. You shall not covet                                                   No. Let’s just call it Socialism and people

will think God wants them to have this

Finally, we see in the Scriptures something very important as we begin to get sucked into this deception to help Satan create is Mystery Babylon, One World Order.

You have set all the borders of the earth: you have made summer and winter (Pslam 74:17)

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. (Acts 17:26)

Open boarders are not from God, as HE is the one who has established them. If God had wanted us to be ONE WORLD and ONE NATION, then the Tower of Babel would never have even been an issue. Instead, Satan once again is drawing many back into his master plan under the guise of God’s love and what He would really want for us. Sadly, it’s just not the truth and the bible tells us what is to become of those who continue to follow after friendship with the world…..

9The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. (2 Thess 2:9-12)
