Bible Believers' Newsletter #215
"We focus on the PRESENT Truth -- what Jesus is doing NOW . . ." ISSN 1442-8660
Welcome once again in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for fellowship in God's unchanging Word.
Satan has impersonated all things bright and beautiful and deceived all creatures great and small to build the totalitarian one world government he offered Jesus if He would do obeisance. Satan's Old Testament prototype was Babylon where his ancient priest-king ordered secular and religious affairs. Under the First Seal Jesus foretold Satan's plans to build a New (Testament) World Order -- Mystery Babylon -- ruled by a priest-king -- an incarnate pope of Rome worshipped by all the world (Revelation 13:1-8).
1,900 years after Jesus spoke these prophetic words even the wayward and fools know the climax of Satan's deception is at hand. Yet the congregations in Satan's churches impersonating Christ's Church are so completely hoodwinked and blindfolded they fail to realize that Satan's day and the day of the Lord share the same time-space. Too late will they realize they have enlisted in the enemy's army.
The carefully orchestrated events of September 11 intended to enable the Council on Foreign Relations and other elements of the totalitarian One World Government to bring their secret into the open have succeeded. Although Congressmen and Senators were the last to find out and still don't know the locations of their secret underground cities, Judaeo-Communist President Eisenhower's shadowy 'Continuity of Government' plan for a parallel government is now in open operation.
The National Program Office operates the Continuity of Government Project, which has been an ongoing secret to maintain command, control, communication and intelligence executive centers during extreme National Emergency by operating clandestine, secure, underground cities staffed by surrogates for above-ground national leaders; FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is their private army, a black project which operates federal preventive-detention camps often located on military bases or federal Bureau of Land Management lands, and secure underground shelters for the elite during cataclysms, etc..
Your country, whether its government be Islamic, pseudo-Christian or self-styled "Jew," its government is a series of criminal 'front' organizations which history shows is always the start of totalitarianism. It is part of the conspiracy, as are its religious institutions. The only government we can trust is that which rests on the shoulder of Jesus Christ. We vote it in with our feet (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 10:7), and with our heart (Mark 12:30).
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith and whosoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible. . . Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony
Congress Not Advised of Shadow Government
March 2, 2002 -- Key congressional leaders said yesterday the White House did not tell them that President Bush has moved a cadre of senior civilian managers to secret underground sites outside Washington to ensure that the federal government could survive a devastating terrorist attack on the nation's capital. . . Regardless of whether Bush had an obligation to notify legislative leaders, the congressional leaders' ignorance of the plan he set in motion could raise the question of how this shadow administration would establish its legitimacy with Congress in the event it needed to step in for a crippled White House.
At least some members of Congress suggested yesterday that the administration should have conferred about its plans. Full story: washingtonpost.com
Pentagon Hunt the Boeing and Test Your Perceptions!
As everyone knows, on 11 September, less than an hour after the attack on the World Trade Centre, an airplane collided with the Pentagon. Associated Press first reported a booby-trapped truck had caused the explosion. The Pentagon quickly denied this. The official US government version of events still holds. Look at these photographs and try to find evidence to corroborate the official version. It's up to you to hunt the Boeing!
Comment: Just as strategically placed explosives are said to have been responsible for destroying the WTC, it appears timed charges had been planted in the targeted wing of the Pentagon. There is no sign of a plane in official US government photos and the path of Flight 77 does not appear in CNN's diagram.

The Unholy Alliance: Christianity & the NWO Part II
America's leading evangelicals, Rev. Sun Moon, and the US Intelligence community seem strange bedfellows until you discover their links to the Council on Foreign Relations and similar institutions through which the Committee of 300 control our governments. Such an unholy alliance exists to bring life to the (once) Protestant image unto the beast via Rockefeller's pagan World Council of Churches. It came up out of the Earth, the US, and had two horns like a lamb signifying separation of church and state powers. But after a time it began to speak like the Dragon, declaring, 'You are either with us or you are our enemy.' We are presently witnessing the reunion of those two horns to establish and enforce Satan's one world government. Full story: rense.com
General Agreement on Trade in Services: GATS
GATS is an international World Trade Organization (WTO) General Agreement on Trade in Services that will put all government-supplied services out to international tender. The lowest tender must be accepted.
GATS becomes final in Australia in November 2002. Australians will have had no say in the agreement because we have not been advised about it. A British, French, German, Russian or North Korean cartel operating from India, Indonesia or some other country could be running any number of services including the Police because they had the lowest tender.
The only jobs that will be available will be at rates of pay equal to those in the country of the tenderer. A bowl of rice a day is now in the offering. International cartels run by the Money Power will be making huge profits and the world's people will be their slaves. (See Protocol 3 and Protocol 6).
Our governments paved the way for this massive change by allowing the international cartels to gain control of major service industries: banks, communications, distribution, and utilities: water supply, electricity, etc., Information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Strategic Functions of US Aid to Israel
Since 1992, the US has offered Israel an additional $2 billion annually in loan guarantees. Congressional researchers have disclosed that between 1974 and 1989, $16.4 billion in US military loans were converted to grants and that this was the understanding from the beginning. Indeed, all past US loans to Israel have eventually been forgiven by Congress, which has undoubtedly helped Israel's often-touted claim that they have never defaulted on a US government loan. US policy since 1984 has been that economic assistance to Israel must equal or exceed Israel's annual debt repayment to the United States. Unlike other countries, which receive aid in quarterly installments, aid to Israel since 1982 has been given in a lump sum at the beginning of the fiscal year, leaving the US government to borrow from future revenues. Israel even lends some of this money back through US treasury bills and collects the additional interest. In addition, there is the more than $1.5 billion in private US funds that go to Israel annually in the form of $1 billion in private tax-deductible donations and $500 million in Israeli bonds. The ability of Americans to make what amounts to tax-deductible contributions to a foreign government, made possible through a number of Jewish charities, does not exist with any other country. Nor do these figures include short- and long-term commercial loans from US banks, which have been as high as $1 billion annually in recent years.
Total US aid to Israel is approximately one-third of the American foreign-aid budget, even though Israel comprises just .001 percent of the world's population and already has one of the world's higher per capita incomes. Full story: wrmea.com wrmea.com thenation.com
Israeli Army Faces Defeat in War against Palestinians
London, March 4, 2002 -- Israel's leading military historian has a bleak message for the country's generals: the army is winning the battle against Palestinian armed groups, but the final result can only be defeat -- and perhaps civil war at home.
Martin van Creveld, professor of history at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, believes that the might of the Israeli army is proving to be "99 per cent irrelevant" in the battle now in its 17th month.
More important, he believes, will be the morale of the Israeli army, which is showing signs of strain at the burden of keeping millions of Palestinians under control to prevent terrorists entering Israel.
Already 280 Israeli reserve officers and NCOs have signed a petition refusing to serve in the occupied territories on grounds of conscience, and the first two "refuseniks" were jailed for 28 days on Monday. They are sergeants in the paratroops and the armoured corps. Full story: London Telegraph
Association of Ultra-Orthodox Jews of Greater NY
We are a new organization, representing ultra-Orthodox Jews of Greater New York, which will in the next several months arouse and sensitize the American public to the machinations of the Zionists and secular Jews living in our midst. We are out to destroy the reputation of those wicked Jews because it is a Torah commandment (mitzvah) to defame and degrade them.
We will become the largest organization in the US fighting the evil of Zionism. Our next email bulletin of 6,000 words will detail the names and the extent of the involvement of secular jews in fraud, corruption, espionage and pornography in Western countries. . . Notwithstanding that the Israeli army has the most powerful and sophisticated weapons in the world, the Palestinians with their simple guns and firebombs are exacting a severe beating on the Israeli soldiers. Furthermore, the relentless Palestinian guerrilla attacks within Israel have crippled the Israeli economy and caused the near-collapse of Israeli society.
Zionism is not only the antithesis of Torah-true Judaism, but also the cancer of humanity. Either the Zionists destroy Jews and Judaism, or ultra-Orthodox Jews eradicate Zionism. Full story: jewsnotzionists.org
Rift Between US Government and US Special Forces
Before September is out, the American Federal Prosecution will have signed confessions which "prove" some of the men held in Cuba personally helped to train in terrorist techniques, with others possibly providing flight instruction, bomb making, and so on. All lies of course, but the US Government doesn't care about that. Think about it people, think about it! What other possible reason can there be for importing these Afghans and Arabs into Cuba, after kidnapping them them overseas? If they were the "very, very dangerous" men claimed by Rumsfeld, they would have been left to the tender mercies of the drug-running warlords recently restored to power by the CIA. Believe me when I say that justice would then have been incredibly swift, incredibly terminal, and no drain on the American taxpayer at all.
To discover exactly how the "disappeared" will be made to "confess", we need to go back in history to the seventies. . . Full story: Joe Vialls
The White Horse Rider
The kingdom of heaven or kingdom of God derives from Daniel 2:44 and 7:13-14, 27 and is the kingdom of Messiah presently in its Spiritual and invisible phase of faith in the Word and its future realization on Earth in glory, when finally heaven and Earth are renewed (Revelation 21; 22). This Spiritual kingdom called the new birth was preached first to Israel who rejected It. Next It was ministered to we Gentiles, but now our people are rejecting the revelation.
Luke 8:10, "Jesus said, To you it is given to understand the MYSTERIES of the kingdom of God but to others they remain parables that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand".
Luke 9:2, "And he sent them to PREACH the kingdom of God. . ."
Luke 17:20-24, "The Pharisees demanded of Jesus, when the kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: neither shall they say, Look! Here it is here! or, See, it is there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is WITHIN you".
"And He said to the disciples, The time is coming when you will long to see even one of the days of the Son of man, and you will not see it. And they will say to you, Look, He is there! or See, He is here; but not do go out or follow them. For as lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other, so will also the Son of man be in the day of His parousia".
The kingdom of God is within the elect New Testament saints by the REVELATION of the Word for THEIR day (Luke 17:21). The parables and sayings concerning the kingdom of heaven all concern election and revelation or faith from Above. Jesus said He would build His Church on the rock of revelation, against which the gates of hell shall not prevail (Matthew 16:17-18).
Matthew 23:13: Jesus said, "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces: for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who would enter to do so." By denying and scoffing at the faith they committed the unpardonable sin (Matthew 12:32; Luke 17:2; Hebrews 6:4-8).
The natural material kingdom here on earth will be preached by two witnesses to Israel during the tribulation after the translation of the Bride. It will be set up in the Millennium (Isaiah 9:6-7; Acts 1:6-7).
John 12:20-31: Certain God-fearing Greeks who had embraced the one true God and the Messianic hopes of Israel approached Philip in the court of the Gentiles saying, "Sir, we would see Jesus".
Jesus, having just been proclaimed King of Israel, presupposing His final, open rupture with the Hierarchs, the very presentiment of imminent death having already entered His soul, answered saying, "The time has come for the Son of man to be glorified and I assure you, except a corn of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone: but if it dies, it produces much fruit".
"He who loves his life shall lose it; and he who hates his life in this world shall keep it unto Life eternal. If any man would serve Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there shall My servant be also. If any man serves Me, the Father will honour him".
"Now My soul is troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour? but it was for this very purpose that I have come to this hour that I might undergo it to fulfill My role as Kinsman Redeemer".
"Rather I will say, Father, glorify Your Name. Then there came a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. The crowd of bystanders in the temple, heard the sound and said that it thundered: others said, An angel spoke to him".
"Jesus answered and said, This Voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes. Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out".
Although He had just been glorified by the Voice of a thunder from heaven consequent to His conference with the Hellenes before the crowd in the temple, this was to be the last day of Jesus' public ministry. Within three days Israel would put his newly proclaimed king and vindicated Messiah to death.
The close of Israel's dispensation under the Law with a high priest as mediator types the close of the Church Ages of PART-Word with Christ's mediation as High Priest. God spoke with the Voice of a thunder at the close of each dispensation, glorifying His Name in the Son of man, and concluding both in unbelief across a breach without a mediator for their incomplete and imperfect revelation.
From the foundation of the world the Bible was sealed with seven mysteries Jesus would reveal to the seventh angel after the close of Laodicea (Daniel 12:4, 9; Acts 3:19-23; Revelation 1:1; 10:4, 6-7). But he had to remain a Mediator until the last predestinated saint of the Laodicean Age (Revelation 3:14-22) of PART-Word was born-again.
In Revelation 4 John who represents the end-time Bride was caught up to heaven in the Spirit of revelation to see things that would come to pass after the Seven Church Ages. The Mercy Seat had become a Judgment Seat and John saw that the seven portions of the Spirit which had anointed the Church Age saints had left the Earth.
In Revelation 5 Christ advanced from the intercessory and took the Title Deed to all He had redeemed. When Jesus opened the First Seal in Revelation 6 John heard a heavenly announcement like the voice of a thunder, which is the Voice of God. One of the four living creatures bid him "Come," and he was shown six visions symbolizing the first Six Seals. But when the Seventh Seal was opened he saw no symbols, and heard no Voice, there was just silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
The import of these symbols and the Words of the Voices of the Seven Thunders were not revealed to John until the vision of Revelation 10:1-4, and then he was commanded to seal up their Messages because they were not to be revealed until the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, here on Earth in 1963.
Back on Earth in Revelation 10, John sees Christ descend from His Father's throne to take possession of His Own throne (Acts 1:7-11; I Thessalonians 4:16, Revelation 1:7; 3:21). As the legal Owner he holds the Title Deed open in His hand and places judgment upon those totalitarian one world government-NWO usurpers, the Judaeo-Roman beast from the sea and the Judaeo-Protestant beast from the earth, asserting with a loud Voice His absolute Sovereignty. As Lion of the tribe of Judah He is King of kings, and as Son of man He is Judge (Genesis 49:10; John 5:27; Revelation 5:5). In response, seven thunders, that perfect number, echo God's assent to His decree, distinctly revealing the mystery of how He redeemed Adam's righteous sons that constitute His Kingdom; who they are; their rank and station in the Kingdom, and how He will restore Earth to Edenic perfection and splendour. This alone, the revelation of the Voices of the seven thunders and the symbols under the Seals was the Message of the seventh angel.
John heard Jesus swear by Himself there shall be no further delay in the restoration of all things. It was time for God's Name to be glorified AGAIN in the Son of man (not Son of God). Time to call His end-time Bride by faith in the seventh angel's Message. Unlike Eve who received knowledge from Lucifer and life from the Serpent, she receives her understanding direct from the hand of Christ (Revelation 10:8-11). She feeds from the Scroll to Life eternal, coming under pre-eminence to the Word so when the Spirit is waved in the end-time Bride at the manifestation of the Sons the Son of man will be glorified again in His wife to honor God's Name (I Corinthians 11:7; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 10:1-7).
Every time a Seal opened it partially unfolded a mystery. When the angel to the Church Age caught the revelation he declared a Spiritual war. But once his ministry was fulfilled and the elect of that Age were all redeemed, his Message denominated. A Church Age opened and God poured out a vial or temporary judgment upon all who had rejected It. Since Calvary, natural Israel has borne the blood of Messiah while God has blinded them to the faith so that every time a Seal opened and a Messenger brought the Word of Life a Trumpet of political disturbance or natural war judged them. Names came off the Book of Life, and a plague befell those scattered tribes for rejecting the Message under that Seal (Isaiah 6).
This cycle repeated until the last angel. He gathered together the faith that was lost or never fully revealed and finished the mystery of God. His Message was the fullness that brought Christ back to earth in WORD form (I Corinthians 13:10; Acts 3:21; Revelations 10:1-4).
"God Having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which from eternity He purposed in Himself: that at the climax of the Church Ages He might gather together His manifested Word, both those in heaven and those on the earth under Christ (Romans 8:28-30; Revelation 5:13): in Whom we too were made God's heritage and obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who works all things in agreement with the counsel of His Own will: that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. In whom you also who have heard the PRESENT Truth, the Gospel of YOUR salvation, and believed, were marked with God's seal of the Holy Spirit long-promised to Abraham's Seed" (Ephesians 1:9-13; Galatians 3:29).
From the foundation of the world God's secret will and purpose was that Adam and his offspring should display His Own glorious Attributes by subjecting their free will to the sovereignty of His Spirit so His Word could live through them to the glory of His Name. After the Laodicean Church Age, He planned to show Christ's end-time Bride how He redeemed the saints in each Age, and who they were, so we would see our position in the Body and by our revelation in the fullness of the Word manifest the Sons of God to call the Church Age saints to glorification and change our own bodies. This is God's way of gathering together all of the manifested Attributes of His Own Will to the Wedding Supper in the Sky, and the Millennium.
Each elect was begotten with the Word of Truth for HIS day that he should be a kind of firstfruits of God's creatures (James 1:18). For we are God's heritage in Christ through Whom we have obtained our inheritance in the Kingdom Jesus will deliver to the Father after the White Throne Judgment.
When Christ has won the final battle with all of His enemies, and death and hell, and whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life has been cast into the lake of Fire, God will resettle His heritage under a renewed heaven on a renewed earth (I Corinthians 15:23-28; Revelation 20:7-15; 21:1).
From the beginning, God's original right-hand man, Lucifer the sum of wisdom and beauty, had conceived a secret plan and purpose of his own. Whereas God planned to incarnate Himself into His creation by Adam's faith, and to build an eternal kingdom under the fullness of His Word in Jesus our Redeemer, Lucifer determined to incarnate himself by deceit in a kingdom under his headship.
God is the eternal Spirit but Lucifer is subject to time. God chose to create Himself into an eternal Family foreknown as manifesting His spoken Word by their faith, Lucifer, who is only a created spirit being, had no option but to take and pervert God's existing creation into another form that is not His Word, and by intellectual reasoning contrary to faith incarnate his kingdom in the children of disobedience to God's revealed Word.
Jesus Christ was the beginning of the creation of God less than 2,000 years ago when the fullness of God's Attributes took bodily form in the virgin Mary's baby born of God's Word spoken by an Angel. The continuation of this creation is Christ's Bride, the elect Church taken from His side in the form of the Holy Spirit when God put Him to sleep on Calvary. The Old Testament saints and 144,000 elect Israelites serve in His household and government. His subjects are the "saved," granted in to eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. This is the kingdom of God which began with the Word (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1; Revelation 1:11).
Satan's kingdom began with deception: the deception of Eve who conceived Cain through adultery with a man-like creature called the Serpent. According to the law of reproduction we take the nature of our parents. This explains why we must be born-again in order to understand the kingdom of heaven, and why Cain was a liar and murderer like his vicarious father, and not another Son of God like Adam.
If Satan is a liar and a murderer then his children, both natural and spiritual Serpent's seed, are liars and killers like their father. They murdered Jesus Christ and in all Ages they have murdered the Church. Jesus called those who infiltrated Christian circles and organized Roman Catholicism liars (Revelation 2:9-16).
Speaking to the Pharisees who wrote the Talmud that makes the Word of God of no effect to themselves, Jesus said, "If you were Abraham's children, you would exhibit supreme faith like Abraham. Instead you seek to kill Me, a Man Who has told you the truth which I have heard from God: this is unlike Abraham. You do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We are not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus replied, If God were your Father, you would love Me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you misunderstand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to listen to My Message. You are of your father the Devil; and it is your will to practice the lusts of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stood not in the truth because there is no truth in him. Lying comes naturally to him, for he is a liar, and the father of all that is false" (John 8:39-44; I John 3:8-12).
When Satan incarnates his subjects they do his very works. Jesus called the Pharisees hypocrites, serpents, the offspring of vipers, "May all the righteous blood shed upon the earth -- from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar come on you" (Matthew 23:33-35).
When he becomes incarnate amongst the people he is shrewd. Search the Bible and see if God ever dealt with intellectual people. It's always the intellectuals who are devil-possessed. Follow the children of Abel and of Cain, see which lineage was intellectual and which was humble. When Satan became incarnate in the temple and synagogues their priests and congregations went to murdering because Satan is a killer and a liar in the first place. When he becomes incarnate in the third temple, soon to be built, he will force the mark of the beast, and as Herod decapitated John the Baptist, "behead those who witness Jesus and stand for the Word of God, and who refuse to worship the beast and his image, or to receive his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands"
From Pentecost to the close of the Pergamean Church Age the church was made up primarily of converts from the Law. Gentile numbers increased from the Thyatira Age which commenced in AD606 and they became the majority from the Sardis Church Age to the present. The Roman Catholic false church organized in AD325 as a political strategy of emperor Constantine. But was it more so the product of a "Jewish" Hegelian dialectic employing the followers of two heretics, Arius and Athanasius, and their false doctrines? Subsequent canons of their councils and papal bulls, like many edicts and actions of the Jesuits, certainly represent Talmudic thought. Rome is also called "Mystery Babylon," she grew from the same root as the Babylonian Talmud, and her impersonation of the "Jew's" temple worship and Babylonian dogma is paganism dressed in Christian livery.
Jesus said Rome is where Satan dwells because when Babylon fell to the Medes and Persians, Attalus the priest-king relocated to Pergamum with his priests and sacred mysteries. There he set up his kingdom outside the Roman empire, and thrived under the care of the Devil. A succession of priest-kings followed until Attalus III, who died without an heir, willed the kingdom to Rome. Julius Caesar then took the kingdom both physical and spiritual, for he became Pontiff Maximus of the Babylonish religion and was therefore priest-king. This title passed on to his successors until Gratian, who refused it. Pope Leo I took the headship the emperor rejected and today there is still a pontiff in the world, and he is truly Pontiff Maximus. He wears a triple crown and resides in Rome. And in Revelation 17 God no longer refers to Pergamos as Satan's seat nor does he say that is where Satan dwells. No, the throne room is no longer in Pergamos, it is in MYSTERY Babylon, a city on seven hills. Its head is antichrist for he has usurped the position of Christ Who alone is mediator and Who alone can forgive sins. Yes, Pontiff Maximus is with us today.
As apostate "Jews" once united with pagan Rome to kill Jesus Christ and destroy His Church. Today they have united with Rome in the second crucifixion of the Word and to establish one world government to be ruled from Jerusalem by a Jewish pope. They already have an agreement with Israel that can be confirmed for seven years following the going Home of the Church. Then Satan will be cast down to Earth to incarnate that pope (Daniel 9:26-27; Revelation 12:7-9; 17:1-11).
After the Church goes Home Satan becomes the beast and his people, bound by his power, are given over to strong delusions to believe his lie and be damned by it, denying the Word for a form of godliness. During the tribulation Satan's children will kill the 144,000 elect Israelites, the foolish virgin and other classes of the "saved".
Revelation 6:1-2, "And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the Seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four living creatures saying, Come. And I beheld a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer".
The invitation, "Come," was not addressed to John but to "whomsoever will" in the dispensations under the first four Seals. In Revelation 22:17, the end-time Bride born under the Fourth Seal issues the same invitation, "the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that thirsts come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely".
As Christ incarnates His Church by three stages of grace in justification, sanctification and the baptism with the Holy Spirit, Satan incarnates his church in three stages of disgrace. He is the deceiver, the rider of all four horses of the Apocalypse who began his ride on a white horse impersonating the ideal Christ mounted on a white horse leading an invincible army of saints to the battle of Armageddon.
Satan rode his white horse from Pentecost to the close of the Pergamean Age. He began as the antichrist spirit among the children of disobedience carrying a bow with no arrows. He was a bluff as John asserted, "As you have heard that antichrist will come -- opposing Christ in the guise of Christ -- even now there are many antichrists." (I John 2:18). Many left their first love, the Word, and Satan established a hierarchy among the clergy that ruled over the laity; the churches were infiltrated by those claiming election but Jesus called them "the synagogue of Satan".
The white horse rider had no crown but in the Pergamean Age the "deeds of the nicolaitanes" became "doctrine" at the First Nicean Council where Balaamism -- the substitution of false teaching over faith -- climaxed in the organization of the Roman Catholic church. The antichrist spirit became embodied in a man, the false prophet or pope of Rome, and a triple crown was given to him.
Soon he held spiritual power as supreme pontiff. Jesus had prophesied, "I am come in My Father's Name, and you receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive" (John 5:43). In the final stage of his incarnation Satan embodies the false prophet who is thereafter called the beast.
The First Seal of Revelation is also found in Matthew 24:4-5 where Jesus warned His disciples, "Take heed lest any one deceive you. For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am anointed; and shall deceive many".
We find the same admonition in II Thessalonians 2:1-3, "Regarding the 'parousia' of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together unto Him, we beg you, brethren, don't become unsettled in your minds, or anxious by some pretended revelation of the Spirit, by word, or by letter allegedly from us implying that the day of the Lord has already arrived. Let no man deceive you in any way: for that day shall not come, unless there is an apostasy first, and that man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition" (I Timothy 4:1). It was not to be for another 1,900 years.
The identity of the man of sin whom Satan will incarnate was revealed to us through the Seals. The presence of the Bride prevents him from uniting his Catholics and his Protestants until the Holy Spirit leaves this Earth in the translation of the saints. This then will be Satan's own appointed time wherein he will publicly reveal himself with all power and signs and lying wonders (II Thessalonians 2:1-12). nl215.htm
