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 take the honor of the true anointed, the true Christ and [...]

What is the daily sacrifice and the abomination that makes desolate in Daniel 11 verse 31?

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 abomination of desolation, spoken by Daniel the prophet, stand in the [...]

What is the Mass?

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 Mass. Protestants in general totally misunderstand this so-called sacrament. They suppose [...]

Please briefly explain Revelation 13:8.

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 with crowns, and the name of blasphemy on his heads, rises [...]

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 clay. As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so [...]

Explain about NIMROD. Is he the antiChrist, the son of Satan?

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 about the Lord. He had also been told how God saved [...]

What is 666 and what is the mark of the beast?

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 in a beast-like manner. The “Lord’s people” would include the natural [...]

Who is antichrist in the Bible?

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 real “Anointed” is. Clearly, Jesus was “anointed” with the holy spirit [...]

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 some other references to “antichrist” are “the man of sin,” “the [...]
