In Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians, he spends time correcting the misunderstanding that the Lord had already returned. So, in the second chapter verses 3 and 4 (NASB) he says, “let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come [...]
Here is a shortlist of scriptural references. Matthew 24:5 - For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Matthew 24:24 - For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the [...]
In 2 Thessalonians 2, the man of sin persecutes those who love God and the truth. What are those persecutions?
Who is the Man of Sin? The Man of Sin is Papacy - the Roman Catholic system and the position of Pope, but not the particular individual in that position. This might seem harsh and judgmental, however, Papacy is a falsifier which sought to [...]
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 makes desolate.” Jesus refers to this in Matthew 24:15-16, “When you see the [...]
Christ's continual sacrifice was not actually canceled or abolished by Papacy, but it was set aside by a false doctrine - which completely set aside the merit of Christ's sacrifice as a continual and ever-efficacious one. This false doctrine is known as the Mass, or Sacrifice of the [...]
Revelation is a book of symbols - some of which are identified in scripture, and others are left for us to interpret. Here are the main points. The context of Revelation 13:8 begins in verse 1, where the beast, having seven heads, ten horns [...]
What do the 10 toes represent in the book of Daniel, and what are the names of the 10 nations they're speaking of?
“Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with [...]
Nimrod is an Old Testament personage from Genesis 10:8 “Now Cush (the son of Ham) became the father of Nimrod; he became a mighty one on the earth.” He was the great grandson of Noah and would have had first-hand knowledge from his parents [...]
What is the beast itself? Looking to the lessons found in Daniel chapters 7 & 8 we discover that the beasts are picturing Gentile, earthly powers, governments or empires. At various times and places, these powers would exercise dominion over the Lord’s people acting [...]
The word antichrist comes untranslated from the compound Greek word antichristos; “anti” meaning "in opposition to,” or, “in place of” and “Christ” meaning "anointed." Consequently, in order to understand what anti-Christ means —“a position in place of Christ”— we need to determine who the [...]
Will it be a one-world government composed of united European nations ruled by the Antichrist prior to the return of Christ? Would the rapture of all Christians be at that time?
We are not of the opinion that there will be one-world government ruled by the antichrist, prior to the great time of trouble spoken of in Daniel 12:1. The term antichrist is mentioned in 1 John 2:18, 22; 4:3 and 2 John 7. But [...]
