Antichrist, The Beast Rules 3 1/2 Years, Part 6

Posted in Antichrist/Beast, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , on February 22, 2015 by paulthepoke

Revelation 13:5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him.

How long will the beast or antichrist rule? Scripture makes it perfectly clear, 42 months…

In the original Greek it states: tessarakonta (40) kai (and) duo (two) men (months). Definitions provided by Strong’s Concordance.

Revelation 11:2 Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread underfoot the holy city for forty-two months.

The temple will need to be built and operational for the antichrist/beast to overtake. The gentiles or non-Jews will be in charge for the same time period, 42 months.

This same time period is restated elsewhere in Scripture.

Revelation 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days. The woman is Israel and she is fleeing from the dragon or Satan. She is protected by God during this time period. God operates on a 30 day lunar calendar. 1,260 days divided by 30 days = 42 months.

Revelation 12:14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

… a time and times and half a time…This is another expression of marking 42 months. The Greek word for time is kairos. It means: due measure of time, hence: a fixed and definite time, the time when things are brought to crisis, the decisive epoch waited for, opportune or seasonable time, the right time, a limited period of time.

This expression is noted in Daniel 7:25. He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.

It is also in Daniel 12:7 I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, as he raised his right hand and his left toward heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time; and as soon as they finish shattering the power of the holy people, all these events will be completed.

In the original Hebrew it states: mow`ed (time), mow`edim (times), chetsiy (half or middle). Time or mow`ed is defined: appointed place, appointed time, meeting, sacred season, set feast, appointed season; appointed sign or signal.

… a time and times and half a time… 1 + 2+ ½ = 3 1/2

In the last half of the seven year tribulation, all Hell will officially break out for…1,260 days = 42 months = time, times, and half a time = 3 ½ years… Take your pick.

Trend Update: Famine/Ebola, October 2014

Posted in Pestilence, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2014 by paulthepoke

Revelation 6:8 I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

This is the fourth horseman of the Apocalypse. As of October 2014, we are not into the Revelation seals. Currently, we are not the Tribulation. The antichrist has not been revealed. He is the first of the four horsemen. There is no international man on the scene who is a peace broker (Revelation 6:2). There is no Middle East peace treaty. There is no Jewish Temple.

Ebola is making major headlines all over the globe. Another outcome of Ebola is an emerging famine. Estimates have hundreds of thousands of people at risk for starvation and malnutrition.

Kanayo Nwanze, president of the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development, said up to 40 per cent of farms have been abandoned in the worst-affected areas of Sierra Leone. Food shortages in Senegal and other countries in West Africa have occurred because regional trade has been disrupted. People are losing their income as fields, markets and goods are inaccessible. Citizens are being pushed further into poverty. People are afraid to go to the market. People are afraid to go and farm their land. There is less local food in markets. Food is becoming more expensive. Cost of food has increased from 30-150% pending the area. In these areas of West Africa, food was already hard to come by. The Ebola crisis has eliminated years of progress after the area had been struck by civil wars.

Here is the order of events per Revelation 6 and the four horseman of the Apocalypse:

1) Antichrist revealed

2) War

3) Food prices inflate

4) More death by war, famine, disease, and animals

End result of the four horseman of the Apocalypse: a fourth, one quarter, 25% of the population will be affected. The math says approximately 1.8 billion (1,800,000,000) people will perish.

Daniel 12:4 “But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

Resurrection…Next Stop, Lake of Fire

Posted in Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2014 by paulthepoke

One way or another, we are all eternal. Some of us are going to Heaven and some of us are going to Hell. The prophet Daniel makes this pretty clear. Daniel 12:2 Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting contempt.

There are two groups of people here. Previous posts focused on the positive. This will be about the negative. Look at the adjectives that describe Hell, disgrace and everlasting contempt. How else are those words translated in the original Hebrew?

In the Hebrew, the word for disgrace is “cherpah”. It could also mean: reproach, scorn, or taunt.

In the Hebrew, the word for everlasting is “`owlam”. It could also mean: long duration, antiquity, futurity, for ever, ever, everlasting, evermore, perpetual, old, ancient, ancient time, long time, always, continuous existence, indefinite or unending future, eternity.

In the Hebrew, the word for contempt is “d@ra’own”. It could also mean:aversion, abhorrence. Definitions provided by Strong’s Concordance.

Hell is a repulsive taunt and it never stops.

The resurrection of the dead takes place after the 1,000 year reign of Christ. Satan has been released and organizes an uprising that gets torched. All the dead who have not been resurrected to life are brought before the Great White Throne in Revelation 20:11-15.

This is something for the “moralist” to consider. For the critic who says, “Man is ultimately good.” Or, “We need to consider all of the good things they have done.” If a person has rejected Jesus’ cross work and payment for sin, man will be judged according to his or her deeds.

Be careful what you wish for, it is stated twice that man will be judged according to his or her deeds. Revelation 20:12b…and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.

Revelation 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.

The eternal destination for those not found in the Book of Life is the Lake of Fire. Scripture describes this as an actual physical place. It is noted in Revelation 19 and 20.

Jesus teaches about Hell more than anyone else in the Bible.

To the critic, the stakes are high, ante up. “Something” is eventually right and “something” is eventually wrong.

Psalm 53:1-3 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God,” they are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; there is no one who does good. God has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there is anyone who understands, who seeks after God. Every one of them has turned aside; together they have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
