The Stand

 

THE STRENGTH TO STAND

Well intentioned teachers have long taught that Satan is to be feared as one who will torture and imprison you. They believe this so greatly that they teach that Christ will secretly take you to Himself before this happens to the unbelievers. BOTH OF THESE TEACHINGS ARE FALSE, AND CANNOT BE FOUND ANYWHERE IN GODS WORD.

If you cannot accept this now, believe it when you see the events of Rev chapter 11 come to pass. Anyone with an ounce of common sense who will read Isa 14:12-14, Eze28:12-17, Matt 24, Mk 13, Lk 21, and 2 Thess 2:1-5 can see that Satan comes as false Christ and expects to be worshipped as God. Jesus says that MANY will think he is Christ, and will be decieved. (Probably because the well-meaning teachers have taught them that "ANY MOMENT DOCTRINE" a doctrine of MAN;) The False one comes first, (2 Thess 2:1-5) thus deceiving many. Thats why the Churches are not fighting against him in Rev. They are here alright, but deceived.

No one would worship as Jesus someone who persecutes people, or causes wholesale grief on the world. Satan is much more intelligent than that. No, Satan will be slick enough to decieve "if it were possible, even the very elect" (Matt 24:24, Rev 13:12-13). If you will read Lk 21:12-15, Eph 6:10-18, You will know whay Christ expects of His people at that time.

The Word clearly teaches that false messiah will come in peacefully and prosperously to a world on the brink of disaster. The one-world peace system will have failed (received a deadly wound to one of it's "heads", or nations, Rev 13:3). Perhaps the nation who falls away will be threatening nuclear world war. (Luke 21:26) Poverty, famines and trouble will be everywhere. (Matt 24:7) Appearing at this time, false messiah will be welcomed by a hopeless world. As false Jesus, satan will come disguised as an angel of light (2 Cor 11:14). He will come in the clouds (Isa 14:14), showing great signs and wonders (Mark 13:22): he will be coming with many of his angels (Rev 12:7), and even bringing down fire from heaven. (Rev 13:13) He will feed the poor, and cause them to share in the riches of the world.(Dan 11:21-45) Satan will fulfill his dream of being worshipped by many decieved Christians.

After all he would have proved to be the "prince of peace"! Thus the "tribulation" of antichrist is really a tribulation to only those Christians who know who he is. Read about two of them in Rev chapter 11.

To the unsuspecting world, it will be a big revival and party (see Rev 11) Don't make the mistake that Satan is a flesh and blood man. Satan would not let anyone stand in for him. He wants to be worshipped as God. (2 Thess 2:1-4 and Rev 13:8) No, satan is not flesh. He is THE most beautiful and intelligent creature of God's creation (Eze 28:12-15)

He posesses a beautiful spiritual body, just like any of the angels that visited in the old testament, and he has supernatural powers.

Furthermore, he is coming FIRST (before Jesus returns, 2 Thess 2:1-4) Do you now see why this "any moment doctrine" is such a trap?
