The Book of Daniel

Chapter 11__The People Tried

     What a book this has been so far. If I had to pick a favorite book of prophesy, it would be Revelation, but Daniel sure comes in as a close second.

     We’re at chapter 11 and there are a couple of things I need to point out:

     First, verses 1 through 4 are already history, as far as this man Daniel is concerned.

     Second, verses 5 through 20 will be future to Daniel but not to us.

     Third, verse 21 through the end is future to us as well.

     So, verses 5 through 20, we will treat pretty much as history and kind of cruise through them and they will deal with the Ptolemaic and Seleucid kingdoms/dynasties.

     Daniel 11:1 Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him.

     This first verse is parenthetical and lets us know what the speaker, the archangel Michael, had done two years prior.    

     Daniel 11:2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.

     Three kings in Persia. These would be Cyrus, Cambyses, the son of Cyrus and Darius Hystaspes

     The fourth shall be far richer than they all. That would be Xerxes.

     Daniel 11:3 And a mighty king

     This is where Alexander the Great comes in.

     shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.

    He conquered most of the known world in under seven years. As long as the peoples that he conquered kept his army fed, he pretty much left them alone, although he was quick and ruthless to put down insurgency.

     One interesting point to make…when he went up against the people on the island of Tyrus, they defended themselves quite well so he began to move dirt to the edge of the water on the mainland, to build a ramp over to the island.

     It was pretty successful but the final victory came from his fleet, which finally took the south wall of defense on the island. To this very day that land ramp connects that island with the shore, taking away its status as an island.

     One more verse for history.

     Daniel 11:4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

     He’s going to lose it all and die at the age of 32 from Choler or cholera, as we found out in chapter 8.

     Any time the four winds are mentioned it always points to the end of the world and it refers to the four corners of the earth, which means, the entire earth. There’s a great shaking going on, on earth and in heaven, and it will culminate in mass confusion when Satan, in his role as the Antichrist, convinces the whole world that he is the messiah.

     Now we go into the future for Daniel.

     Daniel 11:5 And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

     We leave Asia and Greece and go to Egypt and Syria, which brings much trouble for Israel because they lie between those two countries.

     The king of the south would be Ptolemy Lagus, the ruler of Egypt, under Alexander. The king of the north would be Syria.

     Daniel 11:6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king's daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times.

     In the end of years. The time when all would come to a head. When Satan, as Antichrist, begins his tribulation.

     Just remember that Ptolemaic is Egypt and the Seleucid is Iran. Back in the 10th chapter Daniel was taken to the river Hiddekel, which is the Tigris River, and that pretty much runs between Iraq and Iran.

     These two countries never did get along all that well.

     Daniel 11:7 But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail:

     During the Iraq/Iran 8-year war, Egypt had more troops on the line and any other outsider.

     Daniel 11:8 And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue more years than the king of the north.

     Talking about the Shaw…the ruler…Khomeini…he would come to America for medical treatment but would settle in Egypt, with the king of the south.

     Daniel 11:9 So the king of the south shall come into his kingdom, and shall return into his own land.

     Verse 10.

     Daniel 11:10 But his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces: and one shall certainly come, and overflow, and pass through: then shall he return, and be stirred up, even to his fortress.

     Some of you may remember Anwar el-Sadat of Egypt. I remember watching the evening news one evening and they had a parade and one of the trucks made a bee-line to the platform where he was sitting and the troops opened fire and dozens of people died that day.

     This happened somewhere around 1980-1981. One of the leaders of that group turned out to be the doctor that was always with Osama Bin Laden.

     There’s always trouble in that region and always will be.

     Daniel 11:11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

     Verse 12.

     Daniel 11:12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.

     The Iraqi/ Iranian war was pretty terrible. Half a million people died in that conflict. And it really got bad when they used little children to walk through the mine fields and let them get blown up so the troops could safely navigate through that area.

     And, like always, it accomplished nothing. The king of Syria, today, Bashar al-Assad, has killed millions of his own people with chemical warfare and it accomplishes nothing except pain, misery, heartbreak and death.

     And if you look at the guy when he’s on TV, he looks just like everyone else on this planet. You would expect a monster like that to look different somehow, be grotesque in some way that was noticeable on the outside, but I guess not.

     Where are those sunglasses when you really need them?

     Daniel 11:13 For the king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after certain years with a great army and with much riches.

     The king of the north….Syria.

     Daniel 11:14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.

     Who is the they? The Kenites. Haven’t heard much about them in Scripture lately but they haven’t gone anywhere.

     Daniel 11:15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.

     The king of the north has now become Antiochus the Great.

     Daniel 11:16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.

     This glorious land is Jerusalem, of course, and that includes the building known as the Dome of the Rock. Construction was completed in 691 A.D., and it sits on the old foundation of both Jewish Temples. A lot has happened in that area over the centuries and the Muslims will keep control of it until the Lord returns and then it will be removed, I have no doubt.

     Daniel 11:17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side, neither be for him.

     Ever heard of the Wahhabi? It’s a sect of the orthodox Sunni Muslims and is still the predominant religious force in Saudi Arabia.

     And speaking of Saudi Arabia, our wonderful president, Donald Trump, made us all proud this afternoon when he spoke before 60 national leaders from around the Middle East, pledging support from the U.S. in the fight against ISIS, HAMAS, and other religious forces that promote violence and terrorism.

     You could really tell that Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the king of Saudi Arabia, was pleased with what President Trump had to say.

     Obama pretty much destroyed all relations with these countries, with his open support for Iraq over the eight years of his presidency, and you could tell that everyone, for the most part, welcomed the message that President Trump brought with him.

     And he stressed that they will have to be the ones to lead in this fight against the terrorists but we will back them up all the way. His next stop on this tour will be Israel and his meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu, who also welcomes him with open arms.

     They too felt the disrespect coming from Obama, at times being made to enter into the White House through the servants’ entrance at the rear of the building. President Trump is well on the way to forging a new and better relationship with that country.

     He will also stop at the Vatican City and meet with Pope Francis.

     President Trump’s first tour outside the U.S. and he visits with the leaders of the three most prominent religions of this world: Islam, Catholicism, and Judaism. How special and dedicated is that?

     While they work collectively to defeat terrorism around the world I can’t help but think of the words in 1st Thessalonians:

     Ref: 1st Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. KJV

     If this tour that President Trump is making is not a glaring sign of the end times, I don’t know what is.

     Daniel 11:18 After this shall he turn his face unto the isles, and shall take many:

     Libya and the others.

     but a prince for his own behalf shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon him.

     He shall cause it to turn upon him. It’s going to fall.

     Daniel 11:19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.

     It’s not going to work out, nobody can get it together.

     Daniel 11:20 Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.

     This raiser of taxes would be Seleucus Philopator, the oldest son of Antiochus the Great. He’s just going to be put out of office.

     You know, on the subject of taxes, we buy a considerable amount of oil from these countries at a cost of billions and billions of dollars every year and were it not for the environmentalists back in the 1970’s and 1980’s, we would be drilling for more domestic oil and not depend on the Middle East.

     That, in itself, poses a major problem because we haven’t built a refinery in decades and the ones that exist could not handle the production of the raw materials if we were to produce the petroleum from our own land.

     Now, we go to the future.

     Daniel 11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person,

     This vile person is one of the many names that Satan uses as he goes about causing his spiritual destruction.

     to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

     Many, many so-called Christians have been taught that when the Devil shows up there will be blood running down the streets, and all kinds of chaos and destruction. Is it any wonder that they believe in the rapture theory or the fly-away doctrines? No, it’s not. Even I would want to avoid such a situation if it were true.

     But these preachers, as ignorant as they are, keep the congregation scared to death and there is no reason for doing so, IF you read and understand the Word of our Lord.

     Satan’s game is to steal as many souls from our Father as he possibly can and have them walk into the Lake of Fire, right along with him.

     And how many people do you think he can convince to follow him if he brings death and destruction along with him when he comes? The answer to that question is NONE. Would you willingly follow someone that leaves a trail of blood and destruction behind them? I don’t think so.

     And so it is with the number 666. You cannot run around and work for Satan and convince souls to follow him if you have 666 tattooed all over your head. It’s not a number that causes the fall of your soul, it’s a belief in the wrong christ that destroys your soul.

     But he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries. Satan is going to imitate Christ and when Christ went into the city of Jerusalem, on that small donkey, did He leave death and destruction and blood in His path?

     Of course not! Satan/Antichrist will look just like the true Christ; he will sound just like the true Christ. If you follow the teachings of Islam, he will look and sound just like the prophet Muhammad. If you happen to be a Buddhist, he will look and sound just like Buddha.

     He’s an imitator, a fake, an impostor. Christ didn’t kill people to get them to believe that He was the Messiah. He came with love and sincerity and kindness.

     So will Satan/Antichrist. He will come in peaceably and with flatteries. He’s going to tell you how great you are, how he’s going to take care of all your problems and all you have to do is worship him. And if you do, you will have committed the apostasy.

     You will have willingly transferred your love for the true Christ over to the false christ and that is one of the two things that Paul said MUST HAPPEN before the true Christ returns. The FIRST THING has already occurred and that is Satan in Jerusalem claiming to be the risen Christ.

     These three sixes’, 666, represent the TIME that Satan, as Antichrist, will come. It will be at the 6th seal, the 6th vial, and at the 6th trump. It’s not that complicated. Stop listening to fools and idiots.

     The tribulation of Satan/Antichrist will last for five months, not 7 years, not 3 ½ years but 5 months. And if you know that he is a fake and not the true Messiah, you will have the hand of our Father placed over you and not one hair on your head will be moved out of place.

     Why is that so difficult for many to believe? I think I know the answer to that question. They understand that they won’t be touched during that time, they just don’t want to be there at all. Protected or not. And the rapture is their way out of the whole situation.

     Sadly, they’re going to be here anyway. There is no rapture of the saints. It’s like putting up with the pain of a toothache, rather than going to the dentist. They know the dentist will numb the area before he works on it, they just prefer not to go to the dentist at all. It’s the anticipation of the unpleasant event.

     Daniel 11:22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.

     A flood of lies.

     Daniel 11:23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.

     Those small people are the Kenites, his own blood. They are called the gowy

     ✡  People_OT:1471 gowy (go'-ee); rarely (shortened) goy (go'-ee); apparently from the same root as OT:1465 (in the sense of massing); a foreign nation; hence, a Gentile; also (figuratively) a troop of animals, or a flight of locusts:

     Daniel 11:24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.

     A time, a times, and a half times. But that’s been shortened, by our Lord, to a time and that’s five months.

     What will it take to make you unafraid? What will it take to make you believe that our Father will protect you? Are you banking on the once saved, always saved, protected by the rapture? How our Father must wish that you loved Him enough to believe in Him.

     How weak we are in these flesh bodies. He even gives us an example of the three Hebrew children that were thrown into the fiery furnace and came out without one hair singed. Didn't hurt them one bit. Do you think the rapture theory was on their mind? Of course not!

     Daniel 11:25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they

     They? The gowy. The Kenites.

     shall forecast devices against him.

     Peace, peace, peace. That’s all they talk about but there will be none until the Prince of Peace returns.

     Daniel 11:26 Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain.

     There are many that are going to die a spiritual death because they’re going to worship him but there’s only one unpardonable sin and that’s for one of God’s Elect to worship him and refuse the Holy Spirit to speak through them but that’s not going to happen because I know God’s Elect, they’re ready to stand against him, they’re ready to war with him spiritually.

     Daniel 11:27 And both these kings' hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.

     No matter what, it will still happen at the time appointed.

     Daniel 11:28 Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant;

     That’s to say, real Christians.

     and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land.

     He’s going to, in a sense, make people turn against themselves, if they’re not careful but it won’t happen.

     Daniel 11:29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.

     Why? Things are going to change at this time. This is when the false christ really steps up. What is the main problem though?

     Daniel 11:30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.

     Those that he has deceived, those that have turned their back on the true Christ and are following the false.

     Who are these ships of Chittim?

     This word Chittim means bruisers. The bruisers are bruising him.

     One of the very first prophesies of the Bible came from the book of Genesis 3:15:

     Ref: Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. KJV

     To bruise His heel would be to nail Him to the cross, the spike that held His feet to the wood, Jesus being the product of the woman’s seed, which was Eve.

     The bruisers are our Father’s Election. They will bruise Satan by speaking before his councils, the Holy Spirit providing the words that they will speak.

     Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

     How is it that they take away the daily sacrifice? That’s where animals were sacrificed in the morning and evening of each day. When Christ died on the cross that sacrifice was done away with forever because it was His blood that was now the sacrifice.

     That was the cutting off of the Messiah.

     The abomination that maketh desolate is Satan saying to the world that he is the true messiah. You will never overcome him if you don’t read and study and build your own foundation before he arrives.

     He comes first and there is no doubt about it. Sadly, too many Christians either don’t know that or don’t believe it.

     Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

     He’s going to tell people everything that they want to hear to convince them that he is the Messiah. And it’s going to be so strong that if the time were not shortened, even His Elect would succumb to the lies.

     If you’ve never read or studied, how on earth are you going to fight back? You’re only saving grace will be the protection provided by the cloak of innocency put over you by the Father and going through the Millennium.

     How pitiful is that going to be? You had every chance in this life to learn the truth and you were too lazy to take advantage of it. My own personal opinion, if you could care less throughout this life, I don’t see why He should care so much on His side.

     You will have literally no works to take with you because they can only be earned during this lifetime, not during the Millennium when ALL temptation from Satan will be taken away, his being locked in the pit and all.

     And you’ll even know the bible from start to finish during that time as well. How pampered can our Father make it for you?

     There are many of us that do know the truth and we put up with the temptations of Satan each and every day that we live. We don’t live according to the will of the world, we live according to the will of our Father and Satan makes us pay for it every day.

     Daniel 11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.

     They witness as often as they can, at every opportunity, letting people know that the false one comes first.

     Daniel 11:34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.

     They may fall for a little while but with the help of our Father and relying on His strength, they’ll get up and continue with their work. Satan will always lose, we will always have the victory.

     Daniel 11:35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.

     Satan will do his best to make the Elect stumble and fall, right up to the time of the end, but they won’t give up.

     Daniel 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

     You might as well write it down because it is going to happen.

     Daniel 11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women,

     The bride of Christ.

     nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

     Had the direct authority to guard the Mercy Seat and then pride filled his heart and that was his downfall.

     He’s going to stand there, he’s going to claim to be God above all gods and he’s come to fly you away to his own little kingdom. I got some bad news for you…his kingdom is a hot place. Be careful. Listen to your heavenly Father, not the traditions of men.

     Daniel 11:38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

     He’s going to be a sweet papa to everybody, every religion on earth…..things desired, is what it is. Whatever your desire is, he’s got it. He’s got it for you, that’s what he’ll tell you.

     Daniel 11:39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

     That is to say, for a price and that price is worshipping him. You can have anything you want as long as you worship him. You can have all his money, as long as you receive his mark, that is to say, to worship him but you have the seal of God in your forehead and you’re not going to fall for that monkey business.

     You know better, you’re Father loves you, you stay true to Him, don’t be deceived and don’t take part in the great apostasy.

     Daniel 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

     This is one-worldism.

     Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

     Those that love Him, they escape anything contrary or chastisement. Why? Because he’s already got them. Already got them eating right out of his hand.

     You must equate this to one-worldism or you’re going to get hung out to dry in this. And these wars are spiritual wars, in a sense, if you’re one of God’s Elect you’re one of the warriors on the good side, witnessing against the falseness that Satan tries to put upon our people. And will. He shall.

     The thing is that you must prepare yourself to know that a majority of people will follow him but that doesn’t mean that it’s right. The majority is most always WRONG. When you follow God’s Word, His instructions, you’re righteous, meaning always right.

     Daniel 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

     He will take it all. Why? One-worldism, again. He will be all gods to all people. He becomes all things, all things desired. You want it, he’ll get it for you. And many people will grab it, they’ll go with it.

     Daniel 11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

     All of Africa. One-worldism. Worldwide and taking advantage of those that would.

     Now, let’s recap where we are, for just a moment. We had history to Daniel from verse 1 to 4. We had future to Daniel but history to us from verses 5 through 20.

     And verses 20 and 21, we had the vile one appear, that’s to say, the false christ. After that, the reason that he can enter peaceably is because he comes in RELIGOUSLY and becomes the religious head of all religions.

     This is what makes the one-worldism complete, they will all worship him that are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, that is to say, those that truly love the Lord and are of God’s Elect, know and understand what is about to befall.

     And our heavenly Father will have this come to pass at the right appointed time and exactly as it’s written. It isn’t that difficult to follow.

     And then we see much chicanery when we came to verses 25 and 26, that they’ll go to a table but they’ll lie to each other, mislead, one grabbing here and one there but don’t worry, big daddy will smooth everything over and give everybody everything that they want.

     No quarrels because he’s there but yet at the same time, man shows his OWN WICKEDNESS by insulting but big daddy will smooth everything over. The god of forces. He’ll force everything upon everybody and they’ll love it if they worship him.

     We that do not worship him, he will not say very flattering things about you but that’s all well and good. Do you know why? Because GOD will love you. Much better to be loved by the Living God than by Satan.

     The reason that I’m recapping a little bit is the choice is yours, you are the one that has to make the choice, whether you’re going to believe God’s Word or man’s, man’s traditions. Man’s traditions are that you don’t have to understand God’s Word, the prophesies of the end times, you’re going to be gone.

     Now, hold on a minute, that’s not what Paul said in 2nd Thessalonians 2. He said that our gathering back to Christ will happen AFTER the tribulation of Antichrist. AFTER he stands in the holy place claiming to be God.

     What are you going to be doing during that time? I know what you’re going to do if you’re unlearned, you’re going to think that it IS Christ come to fly you out. And you’re going to worship the Antichrist. That’s Satan. What a miserable, sad, state of affairs.

      Our Father loves His children BUT He doesn’t love what they do many times because they won’t listen to the simplicity of which He teaches. They prefer the traditions of men.

     The sameness of human beings is so remarkable it just blows my mind. The Hebrew children, with Moses on that mountain, inside that cloud with the presence of our Father Himself, having His finger chip out the granite and write the words of the Ten commandments.

     And they were down at the foot of that mountain, giving all their gold earrings and gold bracelets and gold necklaces to Aaron, WHO REQUESTED THEM, and they put it all in a smelting pot, melted it down and made a golden calf to worship, and when it was completed, they got drunk and partied and had orgies galore and stuffed themselves with mutton and flagons of wine.

     They couldn’t even have faith for a mere forty days. They started boo-hooing and crying and wailing to Aaron…

     ”We think that Moses done took off, I mean, he’s been gone for so long! Why don’t we just get drunk and screw around for a couple of weeks till he gets back.”

     And today, with the Word of God available to them, all those prophesies assembled into one book, written over just a few years, by the hand-picked prophets of our Father, and rather than taking the time to read it and try to understand it, would rather take the easy way and let their preacher TALK to them, TRASH-TALK them, feed them lies, I mean, they didn’t have to put forth the energy to pick the Book up and read it, they were so lazy they just sat there and LISTENED.

     I know some people today that will hear something so outrageous on television, let’s take a news story on the Nightly News, for instance, and BELIEVE it and if I ask them how they could possibly take what they heard as the truth and their answer will be:

 

     “Well, that’s what they said.”

     100% of the time, that’s what their answer will be.

     “That’s what they said.”

     A statement or story that is obviously and patently untrue, and they are too lazy to even think about whether there’s truth to it or not. It’s too easy to just believe it and go on and do something else.

     THAT IS WHY THE WHOLE WORLD WILL BE DECIEVED.  If they will believe a lie from Lester Holt, why wouldn’t they believe a lie from an entity that LOOKS JUST LIKE THE TRUE MESSIAH.

     They will believe his lies. Hook, line and sinker. All of it. Absolutely amazing.

     Too lazy to even think.

     And if you are reading this right now, and obviously, you are, you have a desire to learn the truth and that’s what makes you one of His Elect and BOY, is He going to bless you during the Millennium and the eternity.

     We might be called a rag-tag group of heretics, in this life, but the look on the faces of those that labeled us as such, the look of astonishment that will cover their faces when our Lord DOES come AFTER the fake, will be absolutely priceless.

     And, in this case, we can afford to be just a little bit self-righteous because they had a chance just like we did, they had the same opportunity, and they refused to take it. It was more fun to play church than to take His Word seriously.

     It was more fun to go out to some rave party and rub body parts out on the dance floor, to take a hit of ecstasy, or so they think, and take a chance of some chemical burning up their brain, to take a chance of getting raped out on the street afterwards, than to sit comfortably at home, reading some boring book, about saving a soul that they probably don’t even know exists.

     Daniel 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

     It’s obvious who these troublers are, it’s the bruisers, God’s Elect, because as it is written in Mark 13, what you say will not be you speaking but the Holy Spirit speaking through you. Both sons and daughters and this bothers him because he has everything under control, the whole world eating out of his hand, but then he has this group of bruisers, they don’t bruise anyone but Satan, they are a pain in his side.

      Because truth always outs and as it is written in Luke 21, the reason that he is so upset, and the reason he tries to make away with, is because the true God of gods told him, you can’t harm a hair on their head, and he would say in Revelation 9:4, don’t you dare touch Mine Elect, don’t you try to touch those that have the seal of God in their forehead.

     Ref: Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. KJV

     In other words, Satan can’t touch them and that’s where the pain in his side comes from, that’s why he is ever so troubled. The whole world is worshipping him, he has all the precious things in the world, and HERE are these Elect of God that are nothing but a pain in his side, that they keep being trouble, trouble, trouble.

     And he finally decides he’s going to do away with them. I think if you understand prophesy, probably what he has to do is he slays the two witnesses, or has them killed, that’s his downfall. God told him don’t you dare touch them and three days later the true Christ returns and all things are made right.

     He signs his own sentence when he attacks the two witnesses, as it is written in Revelation 11. They are God’s Anointed and God said touch not Mine Anointed.

     Daniel 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. KJV

     God’s not going to help him, no one else is going to help him, and when the true Christ returns, the very sword from His very mouth will destroy the fake and so it will be.

     How wonderful it is to serve the Living God and to know that we have the victory. This one that is so pompous, this one that is so deceiving, this one that even deceives the whole world.

     So, there is no excuse to be deceived for God helps those that help Him and just a little help from God goes a long, long way.

     I call the Holy Spirit speaking through us, when we’re delivered up before the synagogue of Satan, a lot of help. I consider it a BIG bunch of help but God loves His children enough that even in those conditions, He sees that the true Word of God comes and, naturally, it troubles the wicked one because he really feels he’s good enough, if he can get the whole world to worship him, he’ll just turn himself in to God and it’ll be forever, He’s supernatural but it won’t happen that way.

     Because of the bruisers, because of God’s Elect, but most of all, because of our Heavenly Father and His love for His children. Those that do follow Him.

     When you look around at the world today and you wonder why so few of God’s Elect were chosen in that first earth age, when Satan rebelled and the whole world whored after him and when you see so few people today truly, in depth, study God’s Word, then it becomes pretty obvious why the world will be deceived at that time and why it was deceived in the first earth age.
