To Understand End-Time Prophecy;
Prophecy is the clear evidence that God inspired the Bible, that is why it is called: the Word of God. This is what distinguishes the Bible from all other religious writings. For no other book has or can foretell events BEFORE they happen, with 100% accuracy! Then as with the Bible, often hundreds or thousands of years in advance, sometimes with exacting detail.
The Lord declared that he alone can prophesy the future AND bring it to pass.
So how can we correctly and confidently interpret the prophecies of the Bible?
Answer is: E. None of the above.
Though these things I mentioned can be helpful, they definitely are not reliable!
What we must do is develop an intimate relationship with the Author of the Bible, the Holy One who wrote it. For there is only one person that God will reveal himself to. That person is found at John 14:21...
Then also verse 23...
Remember, an intimate relationship does not develop in a day, a week or a month - it takes time and builds.
For you see, God has two thrones; one in the highest of Heaven, and the second in the humblest and meekest of hearts.
Though a person may be Born-Again, saved by the Blood of Jesus Christ, and on their way to Heaven, does NOT mean that God sits on the throne of their heart. In fact, God is not on the thrones of most Christian’s hearts, as we ARE in the age of Apostasy [falling away from the true, pure faith] a.k.a. the End-Times. Prime verses to reference for this age of Apostacy are; II Thessalonians 2: 3, I Timothy 4: 1, II Timothy 3: 1 and 4: 3-4 then the rhetorical question Jesus asks in Luke 18: 8 - "when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?".
Most all Christians today have a man, a commentary, a bible college or self-interests (themselves) on that throne. In fact, most all Christians of today do idolize men, degrees and arrogance! Therefore, God Himself can not show them the way nor teach them, as He promised in His Word. Verses such as;
You must, you must abide in the Holy Spirit and have Him on your throne. Otherwise you silence Him and are then at the mercy of man and satan’s influence. In the books of -- John chapters 14 to 16 and Acts chapter 1 -- Jesus instructed His disciples to lean on the Holy Spirit for Truth, JUST AS they had leaned on Him! [This is not an influence nor reference to the ungodly tongues-speaking Charismatic movement.]
Also, if you want your prayer’s answered, it is the same formula:
Now moving on to II Peter 1:19-21 KJV - "We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation."
This important passage explains that prophecy is significant to the Bible-believing Christian in several ways.
The important principles are;
Let us focus now on verse 20: "knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation"
As to this verse, every bible college or institute will tell you that "private interpretation" in this verse, means that if ‘your interpretation’ is not within the realms of their majority interpretation, it is heresy.
But Biblically speaking, verse 20 means this;
That no prophecy, doctrine or statement in scripture will stand alone outside of; the Bible as a whole or contradict any scripture within it. In other words, all correctly interpreted prophecy or doctrine will stand in harmony with the Bible in whole and in part. An improperly constructed prophecy or interpretation will be at odds with some portion of scripture, thereby making it a…private interpretation.
Remember this also; the O. T. prophets were NOT of the majority opinion in their day either.
Following are a couple examples;
It is commonly taught that the Antichrists end-time kingdom, the ten-toes of Daniel Chapter 2 verses 39 to 44 KJV, are ten nations of the European Union of the old Roman Empire. But this is a private interpretation, for it defies (contradicts) the context.
The context is found at the end of verse 39 - "… which shall bear rule over all the earth." This is in conjunction with Daniel 7:23 - "… the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth…". Also, all 4 kingdoms mentioned, include Israel. Therefore there has to be a dividing of the whole earth into 10 super-nations. Besides, if the 10 nations were just of the European Union, then the other nations on this globe - Russia, China, Australia, Americas, etc. - would put the number well over 10; making the Bible false!
So how does the iron, which is the old Roman Empire, fit in? By study of history you find that the Roman Catholic Church began with and by the Roman Emperor, Constantine. Though he held the title of Caesar, Constantine also held the title, Pontifex Maximus of the Empire’s pagan priesthood, known as the Pontifical College. The Popes of the Vatican are not the successors to the Apostle Peter, as some claim. But, the Popes are however the successors to Constantine and the old Roman Empire.
Roman Catholicism has "mingled themselves with the seed of men" (verse 43), all over the entire globe. Notice also that the leg changes angle at the foot, transforming from leg to foot with no ‘break’ in the transition, continuing from the Grecian Empire all the way through to the ‘End Times’. Therefore this reflects the transformation of the Roman Empire from a primarily political entity to one that is primarily religious, the Roman Catholic Church, with no ‘break’ in transition. God does not miss details. Also, the Vatican is a government and nation all its own. It sends and receives ambassadors as well.
A study of the New World Order (NWO) defines the 10-nations as;
Please recognize the Biblical truth that the kingdom of Antichrist will be established gradually, through conspiracy or cabal to re-organize the World into 10 super-nations for the express purpose of staging Antichrist. Then handing over to him their power.
Many people in this world will automatically
reject something that they see or hear that does not go along with
what they want to believe, or what they have been taught
to believe, or what they are comfortable with.
Another scripture that needs to be understood to properly
interpret End-Times prophecy, is Psalm 2:1-3 KJV-
Mankind has been in rebellion against the one true God ever since Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit. Mankind has its own systems of morality and ethics, which allows them to do as they please without being confronted with the warnings and judgments of God - or so they wrongly believe.
Much of this rebellion is imposed on the masses of humanity by the masters of this world. They "imagine" to find ways to rid mankind of God. They "set themselves", which literally means that they take their stand against the God of the Bible, against Hebrew-Christian morals and ethics, which they call the Old World Order. They want to rid themselves of God’s "cords" and "bands", the restraints that the true Godhead through the Bible imposes on them and society. This is so that they can establish the New World Order - the kingdom of Antichrist!
The phrase we need to focus on in Psalm 2, is "and the rulers take council together, against the Lord". Rulers taking council together means; to conspire, to plot a conspiracy, to create a cabal.
Conspire they have, the kings and rulers of this world have plotted over the last couple hundred years to overthrow the Old World Order, so they can bring in their New World Order (globalism) with a One-World ruler and a One-World religion. This is why all the media outlets ridicule ANYONE who uses the C-word, conspiracy. This is designed to lead people away from this truth, so as to not search for it.
But if you look back through all of history, men have counseled with men, to overthrow rulers. Men and nations have plotted against other men and nations to overthrow rulers and governments. Even today, terrorists and their countries counsel together against each other, AND against "non-terrorist" nations.
There is a word for all this, and that word is: conspire,
or conspiracy. This word is used 30 times in the Authorized King James
Bible. But even pastors and bible college professors use that great hidden
weapon; ridicule, to blind us from that C-word: conspiracy. The ultimate
conspiracy is as we have already stated in Psalm 2:2-3 "The kings
of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against
the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder,
and cast away their cords from us."
Woodrow Wilson, President from 1913-1921, admitted that
there was a giant conspiracy, yet he became involved in it. He wrote in
his book, 'The New Freedom'...
Also, as far back as 1812, the President of Harvard
University, Joseph Willard -- who retired to preach in Vermont -- took
the occasion of his retirement speech on July 4, 1812 to express his concern
over the events of the day. He declared, "There is sufficient evidence
that a number of Societies of the Illuminati, have been established in
this land of Gospel Light and civil liberty, which were first organized
from the grand Society in France. They are doubtless, secretly striving
to undermine all our ancient institutions, civil and sacred. These societies
are closely leagued with those of the same order, in Europe; they have
all the same object in view."
Today, this conspiracy or cabal uses terms such as "One-World", "Globalism", "A New Order" and the most recent term "Global Governance". We have all heard George W. Bush, his dad, Bill Clinton, other politicians and members of the United Nations using these terms on TV, in newspapers and in magazines.
Henry Kissinger stated back in 1975, "Our nation is uniquely endowed to play a creative and decisive role in the new order which is taking form around us." - Seattle Post, April 18, 1975.
A world government is being formed. The United Nations was established in 1945 to eventually consolidate power to one entity. But the vast majority of Americans refuse to believe that a world government has been forming, right before our very eyes! Even Christians are being deceived; wanting to believe the Tribulation is several decades away, so they can chase fortune and fame, just as the world!
THIS, is the "Mystery of Iniquity" that the Apostle Paul discusses in II Thessalonians 2:3-9 KJV.
The basic tenets of Christianity -- which were basic for the Old Order -- have to be and are being eliminated, one by one. They are being replaced with the tenets of the New Order; abortion, gun control, public nudity, drug culture, situation ethics, sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, bisexuality, white and black magick witchcraft, New Age Movement, etc. This has been done by a series of planned nibbles at the established Hebrew-Christian foundation.
Through unprecedented delusion; bible colleges and institutes, pastors and churches have been promoting their illusions and scoffing at an alleged conspiracy. People simply can not and do not want to believe that an absolute totalitarian dictatorship, based on satanic mystic pantheism will soon rule every human being on earth. Most of the German people didn’t see it coming at them in the days of Adolph Hitler, either!!
While most Americans and Christians deny it, world government is forming and being implemented by the U.S., Europe, Russia, China and throughout the United Nations.
Former president George Bush addressing the US Congress on September 11, 1990...
"We stand at a unique and extraordinary moment. This crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers us a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our objective -- a New World Order -- can emerge...A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today, that New World Order is struggling to be born -- a world quite different from the one we've known."
But if you look more closely and observe more carefully the happenings of history -- especially since Israel became a nation in 1948 -- you will see that there is a gradual and continuing pattern.
Thomas Jefferson warned that when you see a pattern of behavior on the part of leaders over a period of time, it is proof of a conspiracy:
"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery." - The Works of Thomas Jefferson, (Vol. 1, page 130)
If you are a thinking person and have been alert, you have noticed that it doesn’t much matter for whom you vote. Things keep continuing in the same general direction "through every change of ministers" whether democrat or republican, no matter what they promise.
Since 1913, the Illuminati plan to globalize the world politically, economically and religiously so that their New Age Masonic Christ can be staged, has continuously moved forward. Initially, their plans were conceived in the early 1600's, then put to action from 1773 to the present.
How are they pulling it off?
Ultimately the process of discovery will lead you into the esoteric world of secret societies and their concealed symbols. I am convinced that the average Christian will find it difficult to accept these conclusions, but you must search it out for yourself.
We live in a society that relies on the other guy’s opinion. Relying on the media outlets and news room personalities for truth, rather than experiencing the realities and searching out the truth by our own research as individuals.
Abraham Lincoln back in his day stated that if you can control the media, you can control people’s opinions. Do not jump on the media’s bandwagons. Jump instead on your own, one built of your own research and study into the Bible and world events. By proper research you will be able to recognize the influence of the occult puppet-masters in modern politics, finance, business, industry, education and religion.
Jesus himself warned us that spiritual deception was to be the Hallmark Characteristic of the End of the Age - Matthew 24: 4, 11 and 24.
The occult secret societies as with any religious system has its share of eccentrics, but they also boast members who are people of high social standing. Many of the famous historical personalities of the last 400+ years include military leaders, government and religious leaders, royalty, scientists, inventors, financiers, educators and writers, who were or are actively involved in occult and mystic practices.
There are many of these societies under the umbrella of the Illuminati a.k.a. Moriah and Great White Brotherhood. Names of these secret societies include, but are not limited to; Rosicrucians, Freemasonry and Shriners. Also, Skull and Bones, Bohemian Grove, Bilderbergs, CFR, Jesuits, Tri-lateral Commission, Club of Rome, 56 Round Table, etc. Many are they, who are members of more than one group. ALL of them are as sections of an orchestra being conducted by none other than, Lucifer-Satan himself!
In George W. Bush's autobiography, A Charge to Keep, published in 1999, page 47, it states:
"My senior year I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society, so secret I can't say anything more."
The roots of the secret societies go back to the Ancient Mystery religions of Ancient Babylon. This takes us back to Genesis chapter 11, where we find Nimrod building the Tower of Babel in his attempt to consolidate all political and religious power to himself. Of this pagan idea of Nimrod’s, God Almighty was not well pleased, and so God destroyed it.
But now mankind has come full circle, and is again attempting to consolidate all political and religious power into a One-World full scale global model, with the Antichrist -- King of Despots -- and the False Prophet in control of it all.
Mankind now finds himself picking up history at Genesis chapter 11, and God this time is again going to destroy it. But this time at what is known as: the Battle of Armageddon.
Revelation 16:16 -- "And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon."
Also, the religious root of the Roman Catholic Church can be traced back to the Ancient Babylonian religion.
So in other words, as David Bay of Cutting Edge Ministries states; ‘You need to have a thorough understanding of the Bible on one hand, and a knowledge of black magick witchcraft on the other, to truly understand End-Time Bible prophecy and the nearly here, One World Order and its Antichrist.
The religion of the Antichrist is black magick witchcraft. In the book of Daniel 8:23 it states; "… a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up." Then verse 25 - "And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand…" In the occult they have always called their religion, the Craft. Then turn over to Revelation 13:4 - "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…" Then Revelation 9:21 - "Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries…".
We need to fully understand that our warfare is not against mankind, but that it is spiritual warfare. The Apostle Paul states this very clearly; "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12 KJV
Now think about it a moment, if these secret societies were so laughable --as some would have you to believe-- why over the centuries have they attracted some of the most brilliant minds and prominent industrialists, financiers, scientists, educators and (dare we forget) politicians?
The answers must lie in the inner teachings of these societies, which are seldom discussed in public and almost never in the media which they have in their hip pocket.
David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, addressing their meeting in June, 1991 -
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings, and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world, if we had been subjected to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated, and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries. "
In order to establish how deep these societies have penetrated international politics, it is necessary to understand how these hidden power groups have molded the history of the 20th century. These groups are not aligned to either the left wings or right wings of political power structures. They operate within both capitalistic and communistic systems and have as their ultimate goal: a political-spiritual vision, which transcends all materialistic systems.
Interpretation of their activities must usually be confined to an analysis of the outward signs of their influence within the overall pattern of international politics.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, a 32nd degree Mason, Shriner, and Rosicrucian, who saw many monumental events occur during his 3-terms as President, has been quoted as saying; "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way."
Though there have been a few who have come out of these organizations -- usually by way of Salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ -- and have written books. There are also books that members of these organizations have written, to communicate with each other - if you know which ones they are and where to find them. Also there have been dedicated people who have done extensive research on various aspects of these groups.
But the sad reality is that there are an infinite number of books filled with mis-information and dis-information. The ones with dis-information are the ones that were written to intentionally mis-lead you and to disseminate confusion. Many of these books are written by supposed Christian authors.
Yes, these occult organizations control many churches and most all of the bible colleges and institutes, definitely ALL the large ones. How else do you think Satan brought about this Age of Apostasy?!
Example 1: Senator Strom Thurmond a 33rd degree Freemason, along with other Masons have controlled Bob Jones University for decades, sitting on its Board of Directors and among it’s staff. Now you know why politicians frequent the place…they feel comfortable there. Also, Dr. Bob Jones 3rd, who is involved with the University of Notre Dame, is also a member of the Rev. Moon sponsored organization; Council of National Policy, which was founded by Tim LaHaye in 1981.
In addition, from its inception in 1927 till recently, Dr. Bob Jones’s policies would not allow ‘blacks’ on his campus. Some of God’s people – Black Christians – were not ‘good enough’ to set foot on Dr. Bob’s property! BUT, when the federal government decided to take some of Dr. Bob’s money, by pulling his tax-exempt status for his ungodly racist practices, Dr. Bob hired a Catholic law firm to defend his unbiblical racist abominations. When all was lost and he realized how much money he would lose, Dr. Bob reluctantly relented. Christ’s admonition to "love the brethren" can always be explained away by men full of pride and arrogance, along with other Biblical admonitions, by way of their "educated" discriminations.
Bob Jones University's 'Hallmark' has always been, setting Christians at variance, one against another -- by straining at gnats and swallowing camels. To get Christians fighting against Christians, instead of using their energies to win the lost of this world.
Example 2: CROWNE CENTRE at Pensacola Christian College, built in 2002. It has 4; three-dimensional 'lighted' obelisks (standing image: forbidden in Micah 5:12-13 and Leviticus 26:1) out in front of this building. The facade of the building itself is distinguished by 3; two-dimensional glass obelisks, making it in appearance as: CROWNE of BAAL. It cost over 75 million dollars as the last of 300 million dollars in projects, a HUGE waste of money(!) -- how many missionaries could have been sent, churches built, ministries developed, Bibles, books, and videos given away?! But ungodly carnal men 'will spare no expense' at glorifying themselves. Then a search of their library turned up one book against Mormonism, but none against Catholicism, the New Age, the Occult or Secret Societies. WHY!! They did have their library loaded with questionable books by questionable authors. SO, just where DO they get all their millions of dollars to waste?! It obviously is not the True LORD GOD of the Bible.
Example 3: Probably the most blatant example of pagans de-constructing the course of Christianity in these End-Times, is a man by the name of Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, B.A., B.D., M.A., Th.M., Ph.D. He is President of Pensacola Bible Institute and Reverend of Bible Baptist Church, Pensacola , Florida.
So what magnanimous insights can this self-proclaimed; ULTRA giant of the faith, give to us in these last days?!
(All emphasis are Dr. Ruckman's)
Let us begin at the resurrection of Believers. This man claims that God, at the moment of the resurrection puts the women through a trans-sexual process, whereby females become -- sexual males…
Dr. Ruckman states in his 'Genesis' commentary; reprint 1995 from 1969 original…
"Although the woman… she will be male in the first resurrection (see commentary on Matthew, Matt. 22:30)" - page 70
So, going now to Ruckman's 'Matthew' commentary; reprint 2000 from 1970 original, we find…
"Every saved woman has a man inside her. At the resurrection, this man conforms the person, in whom He dwells, into His own image, and bodily shape and form. This bodily shape and form is a 33-year-old MALE." - page 582.
Yes, angels are described as men in the Bible. But NEVER as males. The words man and male are not the same, male is a sexually explicit term and the Bible uses both, the KJV-Bible is a very specific book! Just for a point of reference; a woman can look like a man, but NEVER can a woman look like a male - at least not without a sex-change operation!
Now going back to Ruckman's 'Genesis' commentary, we find on pages 298-299, these statements…
"God becomes the author of racial discrimination… God's 'plan' for 'peace on earth, goodwill to men' is segregation"
Also, on pages 168 and 197, Dr. Ruckman tells two N-jokes.
Then on page 108, we find this statement…
"…but the only question about the colored race is who gets to run them? When they run themselves they wind up starving and eventually eating each other. They will serve no matter who says what."
Turning to Ruckman's book, 'Segregation or Integration?' reprinted in 1994 from 1962 original, we find…
"God has spoken, plainly, flatly, authoritatively, and finally on the matter of Segregation and Integration. A man who refuses to recognize this may be a professing Christian… but a born-again Bible-believer he most certainly is not." - page 33.
Then on page 41, we find…
"…and you may as well face up to it: there isn't any such thing as a Bible-believing Christian who believes in racial integration."
So, is Dr. Ruckman claiming Salvation requires racial segregation (?) or that you can lose Salvation by racial integration?! Inquiring minds need to know!
Racial hatred is one of the oldest sins of mankind(!) - It directly involves pride and arrogance!
Proverbs 8: 13 KJV, "The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate." And Proverbs 16:5 KJV, "Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished." The same goes for Dr.Bob Jones Sr. and Dr.Bob Jones Jr.
Oh, on page 30 of this same book, we find this statement by Dr. Ruckman…
"Since our original color is defined as 'Adam' ('red-brown'), the original color must have been red-clay, as we find it in Georgia. This itself accounts for a curious Negro custom, which close-hand observers have had time to watch - the eating of red clay by the spoonful out of the clay banks of North Alabama, BY NEGROES."
Moving on to his book, 'Ruckman's Bible References' published in 1997, we find on page 33…
In reference to Leviticus 20:13 which reads; "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." KJV
Dr. Ruckman states, "Leviticus 20:13 - Note that David could not have anyone executed because if he got what he had earned, he would have been executed."
So here we have Dr. Ruckman goose-stepping with the Liberals, Modernists and Pagans, insinuating David to be homosexual!
I have heard many of Ruckman's secret and proclaimed disciples/dupes declare - "Ruckman is the greatest mind the world has ever known!"
In actuality, Ruckman is just a mental-midget who stupefies his clientele by way of Nazi psychology and mirrors.
We live in a world semi-controlled by unseen forces that have plagued and manipulated humanity for 6,000 years, and are now taking near total control.
It cannot be denied, for in the Bible, Satan is called;
"the prince of this world" - John 12:31, 14:30 and 16:11
"the prince of the power of the air" - Ephesians 2:2
"the god of this world" - II Corinthians 4:4
The World's attitudes and values are sufficiently
anti-Christian and occultic to allow Antichrist to arise!
The next item we will discuss, to understand End-Time prophecy is the paragraph marks. Unfortunately many Bible publishers did not print them.
But at any rate, when you see a paragraph marker, it means that the previous thought has completed, and that a new thought or statement is beginning. DO NOT continue a thought through a paragraph marker. This is basic English 101, but it is amazing all the Dr. so and so’s who have not figured this basic fact out and rebel against it when brought to their attention (these prideful chaps would then have to admit they erred -- can’t have that!) This is especially important to understanding Matthew chapter 24, Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 and also Genesis chapter 1.
Likewise, carefully watch for colons, semi-colons, and periods. When studying your Bible, remember to not assume that at the end of a verse there is a period. Bible study involves being cautious, careful and being detail oriented, and especially having your heart and mind opened and focused on the Holy Spirit within you.
The next item up to bat, is that prophecy by a Hebrew in the Old Testament ALWAYS has a double fulfillment. Either, near-present and future -or- its future and farther future to the time it is stated -or- part of it is fulfilled at one time and the rest at another time to complete it.
The next item is the words - ‘like’ and ‘as’ or ‘like as’ -- these words are comparing something to something else. Many people new to Bible study miss this. Also, you can never get a proper handle on Bible study with anything but an Authorized King James Bible! For only in the King James Bible can you do word studies and also all the ‘types’ are missing in all the other versions. God wrote only one Bible, all the rest have Satan’s claw prints in them.
The next items are the phrases; "that day", "in that day", "in the latter days", "the day of the Lord", "in those days", "in the last end", "the time of the end": these phrases all, are referring the prophecy to the End-Times.
There are many more subjects we could discuss and loads of examples, but we’ll leave it here on this article - THANKS for reading, hope we helped in your understanding of End-Times prophecy!
Again; II Corinthians 2:11, "Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices."
