=======================================

THE LORD JESUS AS MESSIAH, HE TEACHES ISRAEL ABOUT HORRIBLE TRIBULATION TO COME. HE STATES ...

=========================

( 1 ). { V. 1 } Scripture: "Behold, the 'day of the LORD [ Tribulation Period' ] comes, and 'your [ Israel's ] spoil [ that was taken from you' ] shall 'be divided [ among the victors ] in the midst of you.'

( 2 ). { V. 2 }: For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses 'rifled [ burglarized' ], and the women 'ravished [ raped' ]; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and 'the residue [ rest' ] of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

( 3 ). { V. 3 }: Then shall the LORD go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle. Read { Zechariah 12:2-4, 10; } read also { Joshua 10:14; - & - 2- Timothy 4:8 }.

( 4 ). { V. 4 }: And 'His [ MESSIAH's ]' feet shall stand in that day upon the 'mount of Olives, which [ lies ] before Jerusalem on the east', and the mount of Olives shall 'cleave [ split, be divided' ] in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

( 5 ). { V. 9 }: And the LORD shall be KING over all the earth: 'in that [ one thousand year' ] day shall there be one LORD, and His name one, { Zechariah 14:1-4; - & - 9 }." Read also { Isaiah 64:1-2 }."

=========================

( 6 ). COMMENTARY ... As you can see, the prophecy of the two Angels reaches their fulfillment in the above verses. At the moment of the LORD's return, there will be a large earthquake which will cause the Mount of Olives to split in two different directions, the valley in the center of the mount will go from east to west and from north to south. At the return of MESSIAH, there will be much publicity because of Him being seen by the populace.

( 7 ). This is one reason you can be assured that no false christ's will be able to fool you if you use your faculties in the right manner. By remembering the above Scriptures, you will know that He cannot return to the earth until the end of the Tribulation Period. The only way MESSIAH will come back is when He is seen by those on earth which will be noticed on public television by the whole world.

( 8 ). Therefore, when someone states that he is the CHRIST before the end of the Tribulation, you will know that, that person is a false christ. Thus, even by the miracle working powers of any man, you will know that he is not the LORD. Matthew states ...

=========================

( 9 ). { V. 24 } Scripture: "For there shall arise false Christ's, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

( 10 ). { V. 25 }: "Behold, I have told you before.

( 11 ). { V. 26 }: Therefore if they shall say to you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth: behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

( 12 ). { V. 27 }: For as the lighting comes out of the east, and shines even to the west'; so shall also the coming of the SON OF MAN be.

( 13 ). { V. 28 }: For wherever the carcasses is, there will the eagles gathered together.'

( 14 ). { V. 29 }: Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the STARS shall fall from heaven, and the POWERS of the heavens shall be shaken.

( 15 ). { V. 30 }: And then shall appear the sign of the SON OF MAN in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the SON OF MAN coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory, { Matthew 24:24-30 }."

=========================

( 16 ). The above { Vs. 24-30 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 17 ). { 24 } Scripture: "For there shall arise false christ's, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive [ and lead astray ] the 'very elect [ The saved chosen Remnant of Israel and the saved out of the Gentiles' ].

( 18 ). { 25 } Behold, 'I have told you [ and warned you ] before [ hand,' that these false apostate deceivers will fail in all their endeavours ].

( 19 ). { 26 }: Therefore if they shall say to you, Behold, He is in the [ wilderness or in the ] desert; go not forth [ to that place ]: 'behold [ take notice' ], 'He [ MESSIAH' ] is in the 'secret chambers [ i.e., secret places or in hidden rooms' ]; believe it not.

( 20 ). { 27 }: For [ just ] as the lighting comes out of the east [ flashes ], and 'shines [ and is seen' ] 'even [ at great distance' ] as far as the west; so shall also the coming of the SON OF MAN be.

( 21 ). { 28 }: For wherever the 'carcase [ dead corpse' ] is [ found ], 'there will be the eagles [ vultures and other ravenous birds' ] be gathered together. ... Read { Revelation 19:17-18; - Ezekiel 39:17-20; - Job 39:26- 30; - Luke 21:25-26; - & - Revelation 16:18 }. Part of this next verse is the key to the fact that it takes place right at the last of the Tribulation Period,

( 22 ). { 29 }: "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light ... and the STARS shall fall from heaven, and the POWERS of the heavens shall be shaken. Read { Joel 2:30-32; - 3:15; - Ezekiel 32:7-8; - Isaiah 13:9-10; - Luke 21:25-26; - & - Matthew 24:9}.

( 23 ). { 30 } And then shall appear the sign of the SON OF MAN 'in [ the sky of the atmospheric' ] heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth 'mourn [ and beat their breast and lament in anguish' ], and 'they shall see [ MESSIAH the CHRIST' ] 'the SON OF MAN coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory [ in brilliancy and splendor' ], { Matthew 24:24-30 }." Read also { Daniel 7:13-14 }.

=========================

( 24 ). Commentary ... Many Bible verses have a double meaning which it seems this verse has. The last part of verse { 29 } where "stars are mentioned seems to apply to the middle of the Tribulation Period, where Satan and his wicked angels will be cast out of the second and third heaven down to this earth. Angels are many times depicted as stars. Read ... { Matthew 2:2; - Mark 13:25; - Jude 13; - Revelation 6:13; - 12:3-4; - 20:20; - Isaiah 13:19; - 34:4; - & - Zephaniah 1:12-18 }.

( 25 ). As you can see, every person is going to see the sign and the appearing of the KING MESSIAH at His return. One thing we must mention again here, if you go into the Tribulation Period and some man comes on the scene and states that he is a prophet, don't ignore him because he may be what he says he is! I know that I am repeating what I have stated before!

( 26 ). Remember, there will be 1,44000 Jewish prophets called at that time to witness over the earth, so you should study your Bible and make sure these men are authentic if one or more contacts you { Read Revelation Ch. 7 }. Just ask the man if JESUS CHRIST is The SON OF GOD and the MESSIAH of Israel, if He says no, he is a false prophet.

=========================

( 27 ). { V. 4 } Scripture ... "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power to the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

( 28 ). { V. 5 }: And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given to him to continue forty and two months.

( 29 ). { V. 6 }: And he opened his mouth in blasphemy: against GOD, to blaspheme His name, and His tabernacle, and they that dwell in heaven, { Revelation 13:4-6 }."

=========================

( 30 ). The above { Vs. 4-6 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 31 ). { 4 }: "And they worshipped [ and paid homage to Satan' ] the dragon 'which gave [ dominion, authority and ] power to the beast: and 'they worshipped [ and praised ] the beast [ Antichrist' ], saying, who is like [ or can match or stand up' ] unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

( 32 ). { 5 }: And there was given 'unto him [ the Antichrist' ] a mouth speaking great things 'and [ uttering boastful ] blasphemies [ against GOD' ]; 'and power [ and freedom to exert his authority and to exercise his will over the earth,' and 'it also ] was given to him to continue [ another 3 1/2 years' ] 'forty and two months. [ of thirty days each,' Which will bring him to the end of the seven year Tribulation Period ].

( 33 ). { 6 }: And 'he [ the beast' ] opened his mouth 'in blasphemy: [ in slanders and mockery' ] against GOD, 'blaspheme [ blaspheming, cursing' ] His name [ i.e., Antichrist will be slandering the LORD ], and [ slandering ] His ... tabernacle, and they that dwell in heaven."

============

( 34 ). Commentary ... After Satan is cast out of heaven, the Antichrist becomes completely controlled by Satan, and the Antichrist desecrates everything in his scheming power, and everything his filthy hands will touch. ...

=========================

( 35 ). { V. 7 } Scripture: "And it was given to him to make war with the Saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindred's and tongues and nations.

( 36 ). { V. 8 }: And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, Whose names are not written in the book of life of the LAMB slain from the foundation of the world.

( 37 ). { V. 9 }: If any man have an ear, let him hear.

( 38 ). { V. 10 }: He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he which kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the Saints, { Revelation 13:7-10 }."

=========================

( 39 ). The above { Vs. 7-10 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 40 ). { 7 }: "And it was given to him to make war with [ 'the LORD's earthly holy people ] the Saints, and to overcome them': and power was given him over 'all kindred and tongues [ languages' ] 'and nations.' [ He will wish to destroy all Christians, and because of Satan's power over him, he will especially try to destroy all the Jews that exists on this earth. He classifies himself as a self -made Deity ]. Read { Daniel 7:21, 25 }.

( 41 ). { 8 }: And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, 'Whose names [ of the unbelievers' who ] are not written in the book of life of 'the LAMB [ that was murdered and sacrificed on the Cross' when 'He was ] slain from the foundation of the world.'

( 42 ). { 9 }: If any man have an ear [ and is able to hear and understand what the LORD teaches ], let him hear [ plainly and comprehensibly ].

( 43 ). { 10 }: He that 'leads [ others' ] 'into captivity shall [ himself ] go into captivity': 'he which kills with the sword [ or any weapon of destruction' ] 'must [also'] be killed with the sword. 'Here is the [ call for the ] patience and the faith [ and fidelity' ] of the Saints,

{ Revelation 13:7-10 }." Read { Jeremiah 15:2 }. [ The Apostle Paul stresses this type of thing in { Galatians 6:7 }.

============

Concerning The False Prophet ...

=========================

( 44 ). { V. 11 } Scripture: "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.

( 45 ). { V. 12 } And he exercised all the power of the first beast before him, and he caused the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed, { Revelation 13:11- 12 }."

=========================

( 46 ). The above { Vs. 11-12 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 47 ). { 11 }: "And I beheld 'another beast [ the False prophet' ] coming up 'out of the earth [ out of the nations, making himself known' ] and he had two horns like a lamb, 'and he spoke [ and roared out false doctrine' ] like 'a dragon [ the devil'. This man is Antichrist's lieutenant, and will control the false One World Church system. The Antichrist will protect him for a promise of loyalty and devotion, what a team!

( 48 ). { 12 }: And 'he exercised all the power [ and right of control over all the people' as that ] of the 'first beast [ the Antichrist' and ] 'before him [ that is, in the Antichrist's presence' ], and 'he caused the earth and them which dwell therein to [ exalt and ] worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed, { Revelation 13:11-12 }."

============

( 49 ). Commentary ...The Antichrist will likely receive a wound in his head that will kill him. With the power of Satan, the False prophet, Satan's miracle worker will be able to bring the Antichrist back to life which will be similar to the true Resurrection when CHRIST was Resurrected from His tomb.

( 50 ). As you can see here, Satan is acting like he has full power, the same as GOD the FATHER. The Antichrist is wounded unto death, acting the part of the LORD JESUS when He was murdered on the Cross, and the false prophet brings him back to life, acting the part of the true HOLY SPIRIT of GOD. Again I say, what a dreadful counterfeit team!!! ...

=========================

( 51 ). { V. 13 }: Scripture: "And he did great wonders, so that he made fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, { Revelation 13:13 }."

=========================

( 52 ). The above { V. 13 } paraphrased in commentary form ... "And he [ the False prophet ] did 'great wonders [ signs and miracles' ], so that he made fire come down from 'heaven [ 'i.e., from the atmosphere of this earth, referring to the first Heaven. He will cause this to take place: ] on [ this ] the earth in the sight of men. [ Any good Bible student knows that GOD JEHOVAH used fire to reveal Himself to the Israelites ..., so this false prophet uses fire to imitate the true Miracles of GOD, { Revelation 13:13 }."

============

( 53 ). Commentary ... The trouble is, the largest part of mankind will accept this false trinity as their GOD. Read { Genesis 19:24; - Leviticus 10:1-2; - & - 1- Kings 18:38 }. Remember this, any man can gain a following if he so desires, even politicians such as a President.

( 54 ). Apostates can lie till they are red in the face and many will believe them. Sometimes they lie so often that they even start believing themselves!

=========================

( 55 ). { V. 14 }: Scripture: "And deceived them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

( 56 ). { V. 15 }: And he had power to give life to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed, { Revelation 13:14-15 }."

=========================

( 57 ). The above { Vs. 14-15 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 58 ). { 14 }: Scripture: "And [ the false prophet ] deceived them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of 'the beast [ Antichrist' ]; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make 'an image [ a computer like statue that can talk.' an image that looked like and resembled in great detail this one world leader, ] ... to the beast, which 'had the wound by a sword [ weapon' ], and did live. ... Read { Deuteronomy 13:1-5 }.

( 59 ). { 15 }: And 'he [ this false prophet ] had power to give life [ possibly with computer chips' ] to the 'image [ a statue fashioned in the image' ] of the beast, that 'the image of the beast should [ actually' ] speak, 'and cause that as many as would not [ bow down to ] worship the image of the beast should be killed, { Revelation 13:14-15 }." Read { Daniel 3:5 }.

============

( 60 ). Commentary ... This image of the beast will be placed in the temple in Jerusalem which is strictly forbidden by the LORD. Read { Exodus 20:4 }. Matthew and Daniel the prophet calls the image and what the false prophet is doing with it: "the abomination of desolation" and it will be erected in the temple right in the middle of the Tribulation Period. Read also { Matthew 24:15 }.

=========================

( 61 ). { V. 16 } Scripture: "And he caused all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads, { Revelation 13:16 }."

=========================

( 62 ). The above { V. 16 } paraphrased in commentary form ... "And he caused 'all [ alike' ], 'both [ the ] small and [ the ] great, [ the ] rich and [ the ] poor, [ the ] free and [ the ] bond', to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads.

============

( 63 ). Commentary ... This will probably be an international identification system computer chip. A mark in the forehead symbolizes a type of a profession; in the hand to signify a workman in a certain type of service:

=========================

( 64 ). Scripture: "And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark or 'the name [ inscription' ] of the beast, or the 'number [ 666' ] of his name, { Revelation 13:17 }."

=========================

( 65 ). Commentary ... 666 is the number of man in completeness, even so, "without this mark", no one will be able to buy even a small item! Included in the 'mark [ chip' ] there will likely be the prefix number 666 that will be essential for marketing and purchasing purposes.

=========================

( 66 ). Scripture: "Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six, { Revelation 13:18 }."

=========================

( 67 ). The above { V. 18 } paraphrased in commentary form ... "Here is 'wisdom [ room for discernment' ]. Let him that 'has understanding [ of interpretation and intelligent penetration and insight' enough to ] 'count [ and calculate' ] the number of the beast: for it is the [ human ] number of a [ 'certain ] man'; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
