The Book of Ezekiel

                 Chapter 13

Prophets & Prophetesses

     This is a great chapter because it will tell you exactly what our Father thinks about the “fly-away doctrine” and the “rapture theory”. Those doctrines are a lie and have been since their inception, so if you think that this was your “escape route” from the tribulation of the final days, you will be disappointed.

     And why should you be worried about the events of the last days anyway? Father has told us time and time again that if you have His seal in your forehead, the knowledge that the fake messiah, Satan/Antichrist, comes before the True Christ, He will protect you to the point that not one hair on your head will be moved out of place during that time.

     And He gave us an example of how He would protect us by relating the story of the three Hebrew children being thrown into the fiery furnace in the book of Daniel. They put three people in the furnace to start with but when they looked inside, they saw FOUR, and the fourth one was our Lord Jesus Christ.

     He was there with them and not one hair on their heads was singed when they came out. That furnace being heated seven times hotter than necessary and they didn’t even smell like smoke when they came out.

     Do you believe or not? You must have a foundation of truth in your mind before Satan/Antichrist comes or you will be deceived along with the rest of the world. And you receive that foundation by studying and reading this Word that He sent to us.

     Time is running out.

     Alright, Ezekiel chapter 13…..

     Ezekiel 13:1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

     Remember that the original manuscripts were without chapter and verse breaks or divisions, so Father continues from chapter 12:28….

     Ezekiel 13:2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lord;

     These are false prophets that prophesy out of their own mind, their own heart. Oh, they’ll say…hear ye the word of the Lord…but it’s not Father’s Word that they speak, it’s their own.

     Boy, that sounds so sincere and authoritive..hear ye the word of the Lord. Who wouldn’t listen to what he says? Those that have read and studied for themselves, they might know if what this guy is saying comes from the Father or not.

     How about you? Would you know the difference between men’s words and our Fathers’?

     I’ll tell you what…a false preacher will judge the crowd before he even speaks the first word. He’s looking around at people, looking for the smart ones and if he sees any, he might just change the way he preaches but when a pastor has a captive group of people in his church, sitting there every Sunday morning, he can teach pretty much what he wants and know, from past experience, that it will be accepted and taken as truth.

     “Well, this is what OUR church teaches. We’re different than other churches, we teach the truth, so you should come over here and give your money to us.”

     There can only be ONE truth among EVERY church and that is the correct interpretation of our Father’s Word. Not taught by three or four verses every Sunday morning but precept upon precept which means chapter by chapter and verse by verse. How else can you get some sense of continuity with what Father is trying to teach us?

     Ref: Isaiah 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: KJV

     Isaiah says that it’s like teaching little children a new language. You do it a little at a time. First one sentence and then add another sentence and so on. Teaching full chapters verse by verse will bring understanding eventually but one verse here and one verse there, mostly to back up the subject and point of some sermon, will never give anybody understanding.

     It may make people feel good for a few hours after church is over, but it will soon be forgotten. Many times before you even reach the parking lot.

     Church systems will take a lot of people right up to the edge of hell and that is truly sad. Every preacher that stands behind the pulpit and preaches from his own interests should rot in hell but that’s not the way Father’s Plan works, but they will be the first in line to be judged on Judgment Day..

     Ref: 1st Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? KJV

     Verse 3.

     Ezekiel 13:3 Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

     They stand up there and act as though they are full of wisdom but the only thing that they’re full of is themselves and horse manure.

     Ezekiel 13:4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.

     You have to go to the Song of Solomon to understand what this means about the foxes.

     Ref: Song of Solomon 2:15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes. KJV

     Foxes means jackels…

     Foxes_ OT:7776 shuw`al (shoo-awl'); or shu`al (shoo-awl'); from the same as OT:8168; a jackal (as a burrower):

     A reference to the Kenites that bump the grapevine and make the flowers fall off, thereby stunting the truth from the very beginning.

     Ezekiel 13:5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord.

     We’ve moved to the Lord’s Day here, the beginning of the second Advent. What it’s saying here is that they have no defense for the onslaught of Satan/Antichrist. The analogy being that they have holes in their wall of defense that surrounds the city and it allows a flood of lies to come in, first by the false prophets of today, preparing the way for that false one, and then the Antichrist.

     Teaching lies and traditions, keeping everyone in a state of confusion, not knowing the truth of His Word.

     Sometimes I feel like it’s not enough to simply judge them first and then send them to the Lake of Fire to turn to ashes from within, if you take into account the millions of deceived souls that may follow after them. The punishment doesn’t seem to fit the crime but that’s just my opinion and I’m not the one in charge or doing the judging. Father is.

     Ezekiel 13:6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The Lord saith: and the Lord hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.

     Vanity_ OT:7723 shav' (shawv); or shav (shav); from the same as OT:7722 in the sense of desolating; evil (as destructive), literally (ruin) or morally (especially guile); figuratively idolatry (as false, subjective), uselessness (as deceptive, objective; also adverbially, in vain):

     As you can see, it doesn’t mean love of one’s self but rather to be morally ruined and evil. Lying divination means to say things that make people feel good about themselves, divining things as from the spiritual world. Speaking oracles of truth from places where truth does not abide. Their minds. The root word means devastation, as in false teachings from behind the pulpit.

     Root Word_OT:7722 show' (sho); or (feminine) show'ah (sho-aw'); or sho'ah (sho-aw'); from an unused root meaning to rush over; a tempest; by implication, devastation:

     The lies taken in by willing souls with willing ears, not taking the time, themselves, to see if what they’re being taught is truth or not.

     So, that really places the blame on both parties, doesn’t it? Those that lie and those that don’t check him out, even though their very soul is at risk. But never forget, that Father will protect those that He loves by placing that spirit of innocency over them, thus allowing the truth to be taught to them during the Millennium.

     Are you willing to take that chance? That you are a part of that group? Or would you rather have the surety of knowing where your soul is going today, by studying on your own?

     And the Lord hath not sent them. Father surely didn’t send them. So, how are you going to know if what these people are saying is the truth or not? It’s going to be pretty hard if you don’t know anything about the Scriptures to begin with. You won’t have any way of comparing Father’s Word to their word.

     Which makes it doubly important for you to study on your own or, on the other hand, listen to what they say during their sermon, take notes, and then pull out the Word when you get home and read those verses for yourself. See if it matches up with what they’ve said.

     That takes a little work on your part but then your very soul is at stake here. Is it important to you? Even finding a good bible-teaching church, which is a rarity, you need to check out everything you hear, take nothing for granted.

     Even if you study here, don’t take my word as gospel. Check me out and do it thoroughly. Even though I would never intentionally mislead anyone it’s still a good idea to fact-check what I write.

     To hope that they would confirm the word. That’s believing in them WITHOUT checking them out. Hoping that what they say comes from God and not their own mind. That is dangerous ground to stand on but a lot of people will not take the time to research on their own. They will take his words and believe them.

     And if someone deliberately does this, you cannot expect to be saved during the Millennium. You will have made a conscious choice to believe what these preachers say, no matter what and now the responsibility falls directly on you.

     The rapture theory can be discounted so quickly that it defies the mind that many still believe in that nonsense. But it creates a feeling of safety and human beings like safety. Taking responsibility for your actions is not something people take to kindly.

     Especially in today’s world. A world in which you can almost do anything you want and have society forgive you for it by simply saying:

     “I’m sorry”.

     Sentences have been reduced by the courts by the perpetrator simply showing remorse. Either false or sincerely. And if your time in prison can be reduced by five or ten years, a person can get really sincere, real quick.

     Ezekiel 13:7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The Lord saith it; albeit I have not spoken?

     One preacher trying to make himself look better than the competition. One-upmanship. One will say..

     “Well, God spoke to me this morning.”

     And another will say:

     “Well, God speaks to me throughout the day. He told me what tie to wear on Sunday.”

     Frivolous, lying divination. And if you cannot lay a good dose of spiritual discernment on these guys, you’ll be taken in by them.

     Ezekiel 13:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God.

     If you’re going to a church and they’re always doing something to raise money, bake sales or what have you, maybe the truth isn’t being taught there because it’s my belief that if the Good Book IS taught there, with some sort of continuity, people will come from their own desire to learn and hear the truth and along with them will come their tithe.

     Now, there’s nothing wrong with having a bake sale, to raise extra money for some project, something that may not be in the church budget, but doing such to be able to pay the bills is entirely different.

     Ezekiel 13:9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord God.

     Father knows who they are and He keeps His eye on them.

     They shall not be in the assembly of my people. They will not hold office in His church, they will not be important in His synagogue.

     Neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel. Their names won’t even be written in the books of the people, as citizens.

     Neither shall they enter into the land of Israel. They won’t be allowed to enter into the city of Jerusalem to worship either. They will be cast outs.

     Some people have the ability to spot these fakes the minute they lay eyes on them. They just stand out like a sore thumb.

     This brings to mind a TV preacher I watch occasionally, just to see what his new con is. The thing about him is that he’s extremely likeable, he has a great personality, and he has his spiel down pat. I mean, this guy is really fluid, convincing.

     But he’s a con artist and you almost have to love him for it or in spite of it. Always looking for that seed money and had I not been studying the Bible for so many years, I probably would send him money, that’s how good this ‘ole boy is. I’d do it just because I like him.

     Satan/Antichrist will be more convincing than that. He will portray himself as the Messiah and he will do it better than any other soul ever created by God. He will suck in even the Elect if Father had not shortened that time from 3 ½ years to 5-months.

     How are you going to stand up under that kind of seduction? If a TV preacher can seduce you, how can you stand firm against Satan/Antichrist? And the answer is really simple…YOU CAN’T. Not with out the help of the Father and the Holy Spirit.

     Ezekiel 13:10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:

     They seduced them, they lead them astray with false promises, false hope.

     Others daubed it with untempered morter. What they say is akin to building a wall that will not stand up to the storm. Like pouring concrete without reinforcing it with rebar. Sand without lime, mud without straw. And as they build this wall of religious lies, they whitewashed it to make it look pretty, to look like the truth, and when that storm does come, the storm from our Father, that whitewash will run off like cheap paint and the lies will be exposed.

     Ezekiel 13:11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.

     Father is that storm and He will tear that wall down. He’s angry because they are deceiving His children and He doesn’t like it one bit. And there will be hell to pay eventually.

     Maybe these preachers will retire with enough money to live well but it’s all on borrowed time.

     Ezekiel 13:12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?

     The lies have been exposed, where is the whitewash now? Where’s all that pretty paint now? It’s on the ground and washed away. It’s like putting vinyl siding on an old house…it sure makes it look nice but the rot and the termites are still active behind that outer covering.

     Lies always have a way of being exposed, I don’t care who you are or what your profession is. Remember that old saying….what’s done in the dark will soon come to light? That’s as true an axiom as you will ever hear.

     Ezekiel 13:13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.

     Father Himself is going to tear that wall of lies down, with a strong wind and hailstones. Remember the hailstones in Revelation?

     Ref: Revelation 16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. KJV

     They’ll weigh about 100 pounds each and what is it that they will destroy? The rudiments, the elements. Everything that is evil will be destroyed. And when it happens, men will curse our Father because they’ve been had.

     Do you have to worry about that? Not if you have the seal of God in your forehead. How do you get that? By studying His Word and understanding what it is that you are reading. You cannot just read the words, you must know the meaning of what’s being read.

     You have to know that the false christ comes first. Before the True Christ. That’s what puts the seal in your mind.

     Ezekiel 13:14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

     Father is telling you that these preachers aren’t going to get away with it. HE will expose those lies because HE is in control. They may think that they’re getting away with something for many, many years but the judgment will surely come soon enough.

     “But we cast out devils in your name!”

     Remember those words?

     Ref: Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

     Ref: Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. KJV

     Depart from Me, those of you that lie for personal gain. There was no foundation under that fake wall. It was built on sand without lime, mud without straw.

     Ezekiel 13:15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it;

     That gets it said right there…the wall will be no more nor the ones that built it.

     Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall. Father hates it when preachers, men or women of the cloth, lie to His children! How much easier would it be to just teach the truth but then, there is no love of our Father from some of these. Personal gain, notoriety and fame mean more to some than saving the souls of those that look to them for instruction.

     Ezekiel 13:16 To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord God.

     They promise the people peace during the end time and it’s just not going to be that way. But for some, it’s just too difficult for them to have enough faith in our Father to believe that He will protect them.

     Live your life according to His Commandments and statutes, pray and talk to Him constantly, study His Word, and faith and peace will come to you. Satan and that ‘ole human brain will still instill doubt in your mind occasionally but shake it off, remember what you’ve read, reread it again if you have to, but stay strong in your faith and He will never let you down.

     Ezekiel 13:17 Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them,

     Why prophesy against them? Because Father hates it when men and women preach from their own thoughts and not His Word.

     Now, these last six verses will let you know what He thinks about this fly-away doctrine. Read it closely.

     Ezekiel 13:18 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?

     What is being said here? These women sew pillow cases to cover up Father’s outstretched, saving hands, they make His Word void, and instead preach their own words of lies and deceit. Make no mistake about it, these preachers may look just like you and I, but they have Satan standing right beside them every time they get behind the podium.

     This word armholes actually means knuckles, the joints of your fingers:

     Armholes_ OT:679 'atstsiyl (ats-tseel'); from OT:680 (in its primary sense of uniting); a joint of the hand (i.e. knuckle); also (according to some) a party-wall :

     Some even make a party out of it, it’s a good time for them to deceive the souls created by our Father.

     This word hunt doesn’t even come close to what’s written in the Manuscripts. Let’s look at the Hebrew:

     Hunt_ OT:6679 tsuwd (tsood); a primitive root; to lie alongside (i.e. in wait); by implication, to catch an animal (figuratively, men); (denominative from OT:6718) to victual (for a journey):

     They lie in wait, to ambush the unsuspecting souls that come to them expecting to hear and be taught the truth and instead they are trapped like an animal. They entrap His souls by deception. They hunt them down like one would do an animal.

     Why? To put them into the grasp of Satan himself. They work for Satan. How can they save a soul through these kind of practices? They cannot. They make these souls spiritually dead with their lies. And most times it sounds soooo religious.

     Ezekiel 13:19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?

     For handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread. They preach for the money! And they’re not even well paid because only poor people ate barley, the rich ate the better grains like wheat.

     They spiritually kill the souls that seek the truth from them and the dastardly souls, that should die a spiritual death, because they are lazy and no account, they keep them alive through their lies. They have no foundation, they’ll believe anything.

     Do you want to spend eternity with a bunch of souls like that? I sure don’t.

     Ezekiel 13:20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.

     There is your rapture doctrine. There is your fly-away doctrine. Father is going to rip them from their grasp and save them.

     How many times have you been told that you don’t need to worry about the end times because you’re going to be raptured away, you’re going to fly away and go up with Christ.

     Well, let me ask you something…if the eternity is going to be spent right here on Mother Earth, what are they going to fly away TO? Are they going to fly up to heaven only to turn right around and come back with our Lord when He returns? Anyone that believes that nonsense is just plain desperate.

     People are so afraid of getting hurt or enduring a little hardship that they will believe any lie that tells them that they’re going to be safe during the end time. Guess what? Father and our Lord are telling them THE SAME THING, but they ignore His Words and believe a lie.

     If you have the seal of God in your forehead you will be completely safe. The problem is that they have to exert a little effort and study yo understand and receive that seal, while they can remain lazy and go to hell by simply believing a lie. It doesn’t take a lot of studying to get taken in by a lie. It’s just the opposite.

     Margaret MacDonald, in the year 1830 A.D. started this rapture nonsense because it was never taught before that time. And, if it was Scriptural, why didn’t the church teach it over the last 1900 years? Because it’s not in the Bible.

     Once this theory became popular, the Scriptures WERE twisted to try to give credence to it. Let’s go to 1st Thessalonians, chapter 4, and read what St. Paul had to say about this rapture and fly-away doctrines. Can you pick up on what the subject is that Paul is talking about? Let’s see….

     Ref: 1st Thessalonians 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

     Concerning them which are asleep. And there is the subject, which is, where are the dead. Concerning those that are already dead because asleep is a euphemism or figure of speech, for dead. They lie there motionless, appearing to be asleep, when they are actually dead.

     Asleep_ NT:2837 koimao (koy-mah'-o); from NT:2749; to put to sleep, i.e. (passively or reflexively) to slumber; figuratively, to decease:

     Paul is telling us that he doesn’t want us to be ignorant like the heathen are. They have no hope because they don’t believe in the resurrection of the soul. They think that they are still stuck in that coffin in the ground.

     Ref: 1st Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

     Do you believe that Jesus rose from that tomb, that sepulcher? We know that He did because there were hundreds of people that saw Him walking around and talking. All four gospels attest to that fact.

     Even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. Those also, that have died and their souls have gone back to Paradise, will Father bring with Him because THEY ARE ALREADY THERE IN PARADISE.

     “Well, how do we know that their soul and spirit is up there in Paradise?”

     Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 will tell you where the soul and spirit is..

     Ref: Ecclesiastes 12:6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.

     Ref: Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. KJV

     The body returns to that from which is was made originally, that is, from the minerals of the earth, and the soul and spirit goes back to Paradise to be with the Father. Now, that doesn’t mean that they will go into the eternity because, as we have studied in the past, Paradise is divided into two parts, both parts being separated by a gulf that cannot be crossed over, from one side to another.

     Ref: 1st Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

     Now, there will be some of us that will still be alive and walking around when the Lord returns. This planet will not be empty of people, not everybody will die before His return. At the present time, there are about 7.3 Billion people still living on this earth and THEY are the ones that will be alive and remain when He returns.

     Shall not prevent them which are asleep. This word prevent does not mean to stop or impede someone, it means to precede or come before

    Prevent_ NT: phthano (fthan'-o); apparently a primary verb; to be beforehand, i.e. anticipate or precede; by extension, to have arrived at:

     In other words, those of us that are still alive at His coming cannot precede or get there before them which are dead because their souls and spirits ARE ALREADY THERE. Can you understand that? How simple can our Father make it?

     So, they can twist these verses any which way they want to, to justify their lies, but it just won’t fly with our Father. Truth is truth and it’s right there in the English and the Greek languages.

     Ref: 1st Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

     Notice that there is a colon after the word God. This indicates that what follows is not a continuation of the previous words. The dead in Christ shall rise first because they already have, they are already in Paradise and those on the right side and those under His altar will be the ones that come with him.

     There will be no resurrection of souls from the ground because they aren’t in the ground.

     Ref: 1st Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

     What happens when our Lord returns? Instantly, we all change from our flesh and blood bodies into our spiritual bodies and this is the condition that we’ll be in when we meet Him.

     This word air doesn’t mean sky or atmosphere, it means breath or pneuma. Our spirit. We will meet our Lord in our spiritual bodies, not up in the sky somewhere.

     Air_ NT:109 aer (ah-ayr'); from aemi (to breathe unconsciously, i.e. respire; by analogy, to blow); "air" (as naturally circumambient):

     What about the words… caught up together with them in the clouds? Paul spoke colloquial Greek or street Greek and he used the word “cloud” in a few places to indicate a large number of people as he did in Hebrews…

     Ref: Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, KJV

     Meaning that there will be a large number of souls meeting with the Lord as He returns.

     Now, are we going to stop here? No. When the Thessalonians read this first letter from Paul many were confused by some of the things that he wrote, so he wrote a second letter to them, quickly, and let’s read of what he said in 2nd Thessalonians, chapter 2.

     Ref: 2nd Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

     Paul is saying that they should listen to him, concerning the return of our Lord, that the second advent had not already started. What is the subject of this part of the letter? Our gathering back to Christ.

     Ref: 2nd Thessalonians 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

     Don’t be confused by either some spirit, not the Holy Spirit, or by listening to some conversation, some preacher, or by the first letter that he sent to them.

     Ref: 2nd Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

     Paul just said that there are TWO events that MUST happen BEFORE the return of our Lord. Number one….

     Except there come a falling away first. What is this falling away? It’s called the apostasy. And what is that? It’s the transferring of a belief in one entity over to a different entity. Before I explain that, let’s read of the second even that MUST happen, because these two events are interrelated to one another.

     and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.

     Who is this son of perdition? It’s Satan/Antichrist, posing as the true messiah and that’s where the apostasy takes place.

     Satan/Antichrist is coming first, before the true Messiah. But he is the master of deception. He will look, speak, and act just like the true Christ and when people believe that he IS the true Christ, they have unknowingly transferred their belief in the true Christ over to the fake christ. That’s what the apostasy is.

     “Well, how do we know that the son of perdition is Satan?”

     Good question. We know that from the word perdition, which means to perish.

     Perdition_ NT:684 apoleia (ap-o'-li-a); from a presumed derivative of NT:622; ruin or loss (physical, spiritual or eternal):

     And the root word is NT: 622...

      Root Word_ apollumi (ap-ol'-loo-mee); from NT:575 and the base of NT:3639; to destroy fully (reflexively, to perish, or lose), literally or figuratively:

     Satan is the only entity created by our Father, since the beginning of creation, that has already been sentenced to die a spiritual death. He will never die a physical death because he will never be in a flesh and blood body.

     Why has he been sentenced to die? Because he led the revolt in heaven, in the first heaven/earth age, when he tried to take control of the Mercy Seat. That war in heaven is called the katabole’. And it happened at the foundation of the world.

     He will reveal himself by standing in Jerusalem claiming to be the Son of God but he is a fake.

     Ref: 2nd Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. KJV

     There you have it from our Father. He will be sitting in the temple showing the world that he is the Messiah. And I’m going to give you a little inside information here…there is NO temple in the city of Jerusalem today. That second Temple was destroyed back in 70 A.D. when the Roman army destroyed the city and the Temple. That was the Temple built by Herod, by the way.

     BUT, on the old foundation of both previous Temples, stands what today? The Dome of the Rock. A Muslim shrine. Can you put two and two together? Do you understand who the Kenites are?

     Do you not think that an event as important as the fly-away and the rapture doctrines, one that takes His saints out of having to participate in the tribulation of Satan/Antichrist, if they were indeed going to happen, don’t you think that Father would have told us about them? Yet not one word has been written about them.

     They are a lie and they’re meant to deceive His children who love Him very much. Many Christians spend their lives in church every Sunday morning because they’re taught to observe the Sabbath day. They come expecting to receive the truth of our Father’s Word and what they get is traditional lies of some church system.

     Satan does his best work from behind the pulpits of established religion.

     Ezekiel 13:21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

     Father is going to take care of His own, He’s not just going to sit idly by and let Satan have his way with HIS children, therefore the cloak of innocency will be placed on many souls. The lies of these preachers will have no effect on them. They may believe them, but they will have no effect. They will be taught during the Millennium and then tested for five months at the end of those thousand years, and if they still want to follow Satan after that, then good riddance.

     “Well, where is it written that He will protect His own by placing that cloak of innocency over them?”

     Well, I’m going to show you…

     Ref: 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

     Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. They were too lazy to check out the Scriptures for themselves to see if what these so-called churches were teaching them the truth or not and many of them will not be saved because they will believe the lies of the fly-away and rapture doctrines until their last days.

     Ref: 2nd Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: KJV

     He will protect them by allowing them to believe the lies of the fly-away and rapture doctrines and have them learn the truth during the Millennium and then be tested by Satan for five months at the end of that time.

     Father doesn’t want to lose even one soul to Satan and because they didn’t have a love of the truth that was strong enough to check out what was taught in their church, He will give them their first chance of understanding during that thousand years.

     Personally, I believe that there will be many, many millions that will participate in that Millennium because established, religious deception runs rampant in this country.

     Alright, back to Ezekiel, verse 22.

     Ezekiel 13:22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:

     You cannot promise someone eternal life by teaching them lies and strengthening the hand of the “wicked one” would also be appropriate because he is the one that placed that vision in Margaret MacDonald’s brain and the Brethren, standing by and listening intently, saw this as a device that would bring people into their church so they could take their money.

     Ezekiel 13:23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the Lord. KJV

     People have been taught that they should be the first ones taken and not left in the field to keep working. The first ones taken are taken by the false messiah, not the true Messiah, because Satan/Antichrist comes FIRST.

     He comes at the sixth vial, the sixth seal and the sixth trump. 666. Our Lord doesn’t come until the seventh vial, the seventh seal and the seventh trump. How difficult is that to understand?

     Many times, when Paul was teaching, and he was rejected by the Jews, he said that their blood was not on his hands any longer because he did his best to teach them. Are you going to reject the true Word of our Father and accept the fly-away and rapture doctrines as truth?

     Are you convinced that you can be saved during the Millennium? If that’s what you think then you are in serious trouble because the truth has been presented to you here in this study and now the ball is in your court. What are you going to do with it?

     You can accept it or you can reject it. Your choice.
