Fables Circulated Among Self-Declared Prophecy Scholars

The time has come that deception has entered even among modern prophecy scholars reported to be well versed students of Bible Prophecy. The books authored by these individuals once caused controversy among students of biblical understanding, now are being hailed as great discoveries in prophetic circles concerning the events of the Last Days. While we have witnessed this same movement among the Churches of the spiritually dead and scripturally ignorant, it was rather unexpected to observe this among those recognized as scholars. It calls one to task when discecting what led to this event yet we must first examine the foundation of these fables. The books now being ciculated are Isralestine by Bill Salus as well as The Islamic Antichrist by Joel Richardson.

The book Isralestine makes reference to Psalm 83 being a modern battle taking place against Israel also called the inner ring of Arab/Islamic enemies against Israel by this author. Bill Salus also makes reference to Ezekiel 37:10 in claiming that this prophecy indicated that Israel will prevail against their enemies in close proximity and expand their borders as an exceeding great army. The Bible clearly identifies Psalm 83 as a prayer for divine deliverance against the many enemies of Israel. The Prophet Ezekiel in chapter 37 clearly identifies Israel as once being scattered among the nations depicted as their graves, to again be placed in the Land of the Living and to be multiplied and increased in the Land of their Fathers. The interpretation being circulated by Bill Salus goes against the context of scripture and the events concerning the Last Days.

Joel Richardson allied with Walid Shoebat a reported former Palestinian terrorist drummed up a fantastic fable titled the Rise of the Islamic Antichrist. Within the pages of this book is the belief that the Antichrist will be of Islamic origin and will form an global Islamic Caliphate or world order. Included in my personal discussion with this author is the belief that Israel will be conquered by Islam. Serious students of the Bible know full well that the Battle of Gog/Magog of Ezekiel 38-39 led by Russia accompanied with an Islamic confederation consisting of Iran, Libya, Sudan and many others have a date with destiny on the mountains of Israel. Islam will no longer be relevant as their armies are buried by Israel for 7 months. The Bible also clearly disputes this author's claim identifying it clearly as another poorly constructed fable.

While I am aware that scripture at times can be misinterpreted without careful study, this however is a case of clear deception with cunning and wise fables our Lord did warn us about even to the point of deceiving the very elect. Bill Salus refuses to acknowledge that Joel 3:2 clearly identifies that the Land of Israel will be up for international auction up until the time of the Battle of Armegeddon. Their will be no permanent expansion until the time Yeshua sits upon the royal throne of David in Jerusalem. While Joel Richardson expands on the idea of an Islamic Antichrist also known as the Mahdi which is to appear out of an abandoned well, he seeks to give Islam equal status with Bible Prophecy. The belief in the Mahdi or Islamic messianic figure is a modern Islamic fable not found within the Quran or widely accepted by the followers of Islam.

The many authors of fables that permeate Christendom today have found a new audience among so called prophecy scholars, the motivation for turning away from the truth is remains to be the love of money. The problem that also exists is that these fables are not taken to task, they are not debated within bible prophecy circles publicly. Most of these self-titled prophecy scholars such as Hal Lindsey, Jack Van Impe, Dr. David Reagan, J.R. Church, and many others are unapproachable, they flee from controversy when it comes to Biblical truth, yet they will stand boldly against social issues of the day. The Church has become apostate because of the failure to rebuke and correct those in error and hold preachers of men who embrace fables accountable. Many supposed leaders of the Church and prophetic understanding have led the wolves into the pastures to devour the sheep, simply refusing to acknowledge the danger in the acceptance of fables and the perversion of doctrine, everyone having a new revelation.

MENE, MENE, TEKEL: Message To America

America, a nation that has chosen the road to destruction as so many before her time, once an exalted and favored nation now has become a haven of corruption. The Church in America has become as Laodicea, lukewarm and nauseating, lovers of materialism and full of serpents, trusting in the foolishness of man while their once bright light continues to diminish. I have also trusted in these things and have my own failures yet I now know the great harm it can cause individually and collectively. The nation as a whole has lost its' soul and is decaying without and within, the stench is becoming stronger by the day.

While we appear to be dragged kicking an screaming into the pit where the nations and kingdoms of the past exist, what could have brought us to this moment in time? The condition of the Church is obvious today, yet what of the political, economic, and social environment, can you also see the rampant corruption and abandonment of principals we once held as being accountable unto God? A nation once the envy of the World, has now become as leprosy to several nations who are presently seeking to sever economic ties, dumping U.S. treasuries like stolen merchandise. I believe it is more than a mere diversification effort or protectionist approach.

The nations that once prospered under the wings of this Eagle known as the United States, now appear to realize her exalted position is about to be thrown down to the ground. This should bring alarm to the remnant of believers that remain in this country that without true repentance and acknowledgement of God our days are being numbered. The Lord God is giving us warning, he is preparing the nations to continue without America. Political, social, and economic blocks are being formed, military alliances forged as if the U.S. is already dead and in the grave. We only need to examine the recent B.R.I.C. (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) and S.C.O. (China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan) also known as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, these exist to counter U.S. involvement in World affairs.

The voice of many nations today are echoing, looking for a new world order without America, while they respect our military power, they know at the same time with our skyrocketing debt this too will collapse. Failure to broker a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians only adds to the loss of international recognition as a Super Power. Our position of hierarchy in the assembly of nations by the Hand of God was only due to two factors, which have today been abandoned, the spread of the Gospel of Yeshua and our alliance with Israel. We are now a nation about to experience freefall as we find our place among the beasts of the field as King Nebuchadnezzar did experience because of his pride and foolishness (Daniel 4:1-33).

The Prophet Daniel records this instance and indicates that King Nebuchadnezzar repented from his fallen position and was restored at the acknowledgement that God rules in the kingdom of men and exalts and debases whom he will. Belshazzar, son of Nebuchadnezzar, later became King of Babylon and defiled the vessels of the Temple of God during a pagan feast and was warned of God that the Kingdom of Babylon was to be no more, and he was later slain. Then was the Kingdom of the Medes and Persians established. The pride of America has allowed it to offer Israel up for international auction and for this, our days our numbered and we have been weighed in the balances, soon, we will be removed from the table of nations.

Department of Homeland Security: Christians Labeled Right-Wing Extremists

It should be apparent today that we are witnessing the beginning of a planned agenda to attack Christianity at it's core. The belief in End-Time Prophecy or a bold stand against abortion is just a portion of the criteria labeling us as extremists according to the recently released Homeland Security Report. The principals of Christianity are being attacked today on every front, apostate preachers and churches have joined with the media in projecting us as a danger to their humanistic utopia. Those which embrace infanticide or abortion also attack the historical accuracy of the Bible and the moral principals contained within it's pages. The preparation of this siege against the Lord Yeshua and his sheep can be seen increasing in intensity.

The belief in End-Time Prophecy identifies those which are believers from those who are but christians by name only, for it was commanded by the Lord for the faithful servant to watch and to be aware of the signs of his soon approaching that we be not deceived. For to those that join themselves mocking the Second Coming and the events heralding his glorious return are labeled correctly as unbelievers. The entire Bible reveals the purpose and plan of God for his people and is the testimony of his great love by the sacrifice of his son Yeshua, the Word of God made flesh.
The testimony and faith of those who went before us is also contained within these scriptures, their trials, persecution, torture, and even their deaths.

The Satatic plan to slaughter the child yet in the womb of their mother's is an attempt to cast off the gifts of God which is the fruit of the womb. For as scripture clearly indicates, all children are a gift from God, fearfully and wonderfully made, as a child is made in our image so to are we made in the image of God to bring glory and honor to his name. Children are an inheritance from the Lord, if trained according to the will and purpose of God they will bring honor to their parents and joy within their hearts. It is a shame that so many are willing to murder their children in the pursuit of their fleshly lusts, having spit upon the great Love of God. As in the days of old they have sacrificed their children to Molech.

While we may be labeled Right-Wing Extremists, we whom yet remain in the faith will not betray our Lord nor the inherent truth of his Word that lives within us. We faithful who die daily in the flesh yet live by the Spirit and in truth will continue to warn an unrepentant world filled with sin and depravity to depart from darkness into the light. Though many willingly chose the darkness today there are yet remaining those that do so out of ignorance not having heard the glorious plan of salvation and the promise of eternal life. For these we diligently search for willing to give our lives if only one should be saved from eternal damnation or seperation from God, even at this one, will the Heavens rejoice and the voice of gladness be heard.

Persecution is coming, will we abandon the faith because we are considered enemies of the state, or will we chose to stand and fight with the Sword of the Spirit and Truth. Though we may be imprisoned, beaten, tortured, betrayed, and slaughtered as sheep we must never forget, the servant is not greater than his Lord. Our Lord and Redeemer suffered at the hands of his natural enemy yet willingly gave his life to save even theirs. This world we now live in is threatened by the truth for it reveals the darkness and evil within the hearts of natural man, we who are born of the Spirit exist as enemies and therefore must be eliminated. And so it begins.

Two Witnesses Being Prepared

The time we now find ourselves in is reminiscent of the days prior to the first advent of our Moshiach Yeshua, Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The gentile powers now present on this earth have brought great pressure upon the House of Israel, though they do not physically occupy the land they use diplomacy to place chains of bondage upon the people and their leadership. The leadership of Israel is divided as is the land, the people are bargaining chips for international agreements used to appease her Arab/Islamic enemies. Israel has become a haven for injustice, children yet in the womb are slaughtered, settlers doing what is right in the eyes of the Lord God are forcibly removed from their ancestral homes. The iron grip or Rome can still be felt in the land of Judea and Samaria, many leaders of the people embrace the destructive policies of European and U.S. interests even to the point of dividing Jerusalem.

The enemies of Israel grow in numbers and influence, even aided by Western powers, who provide financial aid and military hardware, openly they challenge the sovereign authority of the Lord God and the covenant promises. These nations ignore the declared warnings of judgement for dividing the Land of Israel for gain, these reprobate leaders shake their fist in open defiance against the Lord of the Universe. As the nations prepare to come together forming an economic alliance under this orchestrated and planned global economic collapse, a global dictator is also being prepared to come to power who will also openly challenge the authority of the Lord God.The rise of this Roman Prince known also as the Son of Perdition or Anti-Christ will come quickly, yet his rule will be challenged early by two messengers sent by God.

Though at present their remains much speculation of who these messengers will be, they will receive power and authority by the Holy Spirit as Prophets declaring the Word of God. While this seed of Satan seeks to bring the entire globe under his authority and blasphemes the name of the Most High a remnant in Israel will be prepared to carry the message of Yeshua. The Temple will be built and the Lord God will be worshipped standing as a testimony against the enemies of both Israel and God. These Two Witnesses will stand against this dark prince and his followers who will seek to destroy this remnant who bear witness to the authority of God and the testimony of his Son, Yeshua our redeemer and inheritance. This remnant also known as the 144,000 will be selected as ambassadors of the gospel from every tribe of Israel, 12,000 from each tribe. The Two Witnesses will provide security for them until the time of their sealing.

The world has laid the foundation for the arrival of these Two Witnesses who will use not only the truth of the gospel but signs and wonders to convince their brethren of the might and authority of the Lord God. The Anti-Christ and the world will hate these messengers who will bear witness of the truth to a people that have embraced delusion and lies. Though their time is but a short 3 and 1/2 years they will fulfill their mission as provided by the Holy Spirit and will be killed and their bodies left unburied. While the World celebrates the victory of the Anti-Christ over these two men who tormented them, the Spirit of God will again bring them upon their feet in the site of all men. As these two messengers ascend a great earthquake will take place killing seven thousand men and destroying a tenth of the city. Their great message will then be carried by 144,000 sealed jewish servants of the Most High God protected against the judgements being poured out upon an unrepentant population.

Laodicea:Last Days Church

The corporate church today exists as its former congregation under the direction of Laodicea. In the time of the Apostles, Laodicea located in the region of modern-day Turkey rested along the Meander River. The city was a wealthy trade center with heavy demand of a unique, rich, black wool and special eye ointment throughout the Roman empire. The Church of Laodicea surrounded by wealthy patrons injected a "prosperity gospel" which focused on wealth, spiritual pride and personal needs and desires. This congregation of believers embraced a hybrid worship of materialism believing their success was evidence they were pleasing God while remaining spiritually blinded to their true condition. Laodicea was but one of the Seven Churches listed in the Book of Revelation who received direct words from our Lord Jesus Christ as recorded by the Apostle and Prophet John. While some of these churches exhibited serious spiritual faults, the Lord commended something in every one with the exception of the church of Laodicea. The Lord Jesus declared "I know thy works, that thou neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art luke warm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked..."Revelation 3:15-17. The condition of this church is reminiscent of this present age under the direction of paid clergy and staff.

The church today embraces and equates wealth as an example of spiritual maturity and holiness, the selfish desires of many rises well above the needs of others. The apostles provided examples of true Christian living even while under the threat of persecution, torture and death. In the first century church the believers were of one accord caring for the needs of each other with brotherly love, comforting one another, exhorting one another even to the point of selling their possessions to provide for the poor and the widows. This was our example yet as we can clearly see this has been abandoned in the pursuit of wealth and worldly recognition, where preaching is an occupation rather than the calling to serve. The Word of God is not preached in truth but fables have entered in, making merchandise of whole congregations and destroying the flock under the direction of false shepherds or hirelings. Dominion Theology is preached in many congregations whereby they earnestly believe that they have the authority to insert a social Christianity within government office to establish a kingdom for themselves without the King. Replacement Theology is preached from the pulpits of Satan which endorses that the Jew is forsaken by God and that Israel has no future redemption or restoration as clearly promised in scripture. Prosperity gospels prevail in many churches today calling upon congregants to enlarge the personal kingdoms of their perspective preacher's in exchange for promises of financial blessings. This is the reality we are faced with today, a spiritually dead fellowship coupled with the scripturally ignorant who refuse the truth and embrace the lie.
