On the Isle of Patmos. John received the “command of Christ” to write what he saw.
“Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.” (NIV)
The preachers who are not lukewarm about the vision of Jesus revealing to John through his angel the things that are imminent are blessed as also the hearers of these things.
To the seven churches in the province of Asia:
Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.
To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, 6 and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.
7 “Look, he is coming with the clouds,”
and “every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him”;
and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.”
So shall it be! Amen.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” (NIV)
Those seven churches as most scholars agree, from the words in the original Greek agree these represent the various characteristics of the church through the entire church age. Jesus gives exhortation, rebuke and commands for each church period. Which still apply to the churches of Jesus Christ who was and is and is to come.
We are clearly at the end of the church age. Israel is back from 2483 years of desolation, as prophesied (Isaiah 66) with precise specificity. Jerusalem retaken in the Six Day war started by Islam’s servants, as also precisely prophesied (Isaiah 66). The stage being set for the final showdown between Merciful God the Father (2000 years of mercy and grace), the Son and the Holy Spirit with this world. World? Yes, Israel as called “the elect” on account of Abraham, the Gentiles and their nations, the wicked and the fallen angel, Satan and his minions.
Jerusalem declared the capital of Israel, in 2017 by President, Donald Trump. Israel recognized 11 minutes after they declared independence May 15, 1948 by President Harry Truman. Nixon whose momma had told him when young, “Promise me, ‘If you ever have a chance to help Israel, do it.'” Nixon sent arms and supplies to Golda Mayer and Israel during the Six Day War. Clearly the Lord uses imperfect people to accomplish his purpose.
To be lukewarm about Jesus “setting us free from our sin by his blood” to “make us a kingdom of priests to serve his God” is sin bigger than sin. To reject this gift of God is eternal destruction
To be lukewarm about his coming in the clouds which every eye will see, even those who pierced him leaving all peoples on the earth to mourn is a waste of his blood in lukewarmness.
To the Seven Churches:
“Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.” (NIV)
Church in Ephesus was the Apostolic Period. Command of Chris
To the Church in Ephesus @ Revelation 2: 1-7:
2 “To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:
These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands. 2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.
4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. 6 But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
7 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.” (NIV)
I am told, the church in Ephesus represents the apostolic period in church history, and then Smyrna the persecution period. Also we are told that the other churches represent the remaining periods in the last 2,000 years of church history. I started here with I am told. Most of what men call knowledge in our day rest on that foundation, I am told.
While I studied engineering physics, in my thirties, due to injury Professor Carnaze (Car-Nayz-ee, self titled Crazy Carnaze) said to me, “You don’t just take things at face value.” He went on to say, “It is refreshing.”
Then in Senior Design Analysis the entire group of 12 students started in to analyze a simple double side trussed two wheeler hand truck. The two “take charge” guys in the group, there destined to be supervisors, due to these “let’s kill some rats” character defects; wanted the group to analyze every weld and joint.
I spoke up, being 10 years their elder and said, the failure modes are: 1) the wheels; 2) the pan; 3) and, the axles. The supervisors gathered consensus and then said, “Let’s go ask Professor Reese. The professor after looking at me and what was said, said, “Mr. Queen exhibits uncommon sense.” Pretty much!
So let’s look at Jesus’ words, him now glorified as the Son of God, to John concerning the church age:
To the Church in Smyrna
8 “To the angel of the church in Smyrna write:
These are the words of him who is the First and the Last, who died and came to life again. 9 I know your afflictions and your poverty—yet you are rich! I know about the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 10 Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.
11 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who is victorious will not be hurt at all by the second death.” (NIV)
This language about the synagogue of Satan is not a blanket expression of God’s hatred for Jews. God loves the Jews on account of his promises to Abraham. There are a lot of religious leaders who lack uncommon sense over the two thousand years, including Popes and governors.
This had to do with behavior of Jews in Smyrna betraying Christians into Nero and other Emperors’ hands. The Jews were exempt from burning incense and worshiping Caesar in the city where this Caesar worship was invented. These Jews turned Christians in for failing to worship Caesar.
Know this. God is coming to judge the earth, after removing his church, and much of that judgment will fall on those who mistreated the Jews in the desolation and dispersion. Jesus is a Jew, as were all the apostles. Christians are grafted into Israel.
The ten days has to do with ten emperors from Nero to Diocletian, persecuting the church speaking of the church in the days of the Roman Empire.
Pergamum was the church/state period with Constantine, claiming his blasphemous title, as Pontificus Maximus. Commands of Christ for Pergamum. Revelation 1: 12-17:
To the Church in Pergamum
12 “To the angel of the church in Pergamum write:
These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword. 13 I know where you live—where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city—where Satan lives.
14 Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: There are some among you who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin so that they ate food sacrificed to idols and committed sexual immorality. 15 Likewise, you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. 16 Repent therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it.” (NIV)
When I was new to the scriptures I asked who are the Nicolations? If Jesus hates them I want to know who they are. I was told, no one really knows. I found this incredulous and an enigma.
Nicolatians is a compound word from the Greek (original language of the Bible along with Hebrew and Aramaic) which means in its essence “the leadership overbearing/overcoming the laity.” Popes and priests claiming the inside track the revelation from God and directing things from central locale in top down manner.”
Jesus had told his disciples “you are not to lord it over one another.”
Thyatira is the Rise of the Roman Catholic church. The ultimate “teaching of the Nicolatians.” Commands of Christ in Revelation 1: 18-29:
To the Church in Thyatira
18 “To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:
These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. 19 I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.
20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. 22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. 23 I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.
24 Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets, ‘I will not impose any other burden on you, 25 except to hold on to what you have until I come.’
26 To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— 27 that one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’—just as I have received authority from my Father. 28 I will also give that one the morning star. 29 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (NIV)
Notice here we start with praise for the love, faith and deeds. Clearly with all the politics, greed sexual immorality, indulgences and murders etc., these words of praise do not extend to the the leadership in the main. I like the truth.
Transubstantiation? Might as well have a baloney sandwich and a beer. It’s bread not dead flesh of the eternal sacrifice of Jesus whom died once for all and then rose from the dead and wine to symbolize his blood all done as a memorial to his sacrifice, resurrection and imminent return. As the primary point in the adulteries we hear Jesus condemning those involved in the intrigue of this church age.
Further history proves this did not come to being until around 500 A.D. Peter’s throne my foot.
It was a parable. “Come to me and feed from me.” Jesus taught at John 16: 12-14 he speaks to the individual believer by the Holy Spirit. He does not speak to priests exclusive of the Spirit within individuals, because as he also prays at John 17 he sanctifies us because he lives in us. He prayed this prayer for ALL believers.
We cannot remain one and ride trains that have fallen off the tracks because those demanding leadership roles and worship have lost connection with the head as Paul (Apostle to Gentiles Acts 9: 15) said. Peter himself will indict you.
Sardis was the Reformation where the reformers wanted to reform the errors of the Papacy but remain united, but left when the church in Rome refused to become reformed. Christs Commands at Revelation 3: 3-6:
To the Church in Sardis
3 “To the angel of the church in Sardis write:
These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. 3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.
4 Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. 5 The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels. 6 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Uh Oh. Seems like the reformation is one receiving a serious sentence, “YOU ARE DEAD.” and “WAKE UP.” “Your deeds unfinished.” The curse of this “deformation” Lord? Is the thief in the night coming at a time when they do not know.
Yes, burning people and more of the same as that (new and improved) clergy in the driver’s seat with the vast knowledge of the universities giving way to a total mess with more and more division and in general a wandering and meandering.
Jesus there also has his remnant who have not soiled their clothes as in everyone of these church age types still in existence across the splintered menagerie.
Philadelphia was the Missionary Period in church history where many missionaries were sent out into the world with great results. Commands of Christ at Revelation 3:
To the Church in Philadelphia
7 “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 8 I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9 I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (NIV)
The missionary period featured many going to the world to preach the good news of Jesus Christ to remote areas of the world, from the west where the church was prophesied to grow. Most in their leadership seem not to understand what is actually prophesied.
This of course makes them less useful to the Lord as watchmen on the walls, as prophets were called. Many of these, however, focused their attention in Christ and went to China, Asia, Africa and South America to peach the gospel.
Jesus Christ born of a virgin ministered, taught, healed illness, restore sight to the blind, made the lame walk delivered many from demons and prophesied. Then, as precisely predicted he was handed over to be crucified and was crucified dead, buried and raised from the dead the third day.
That his death was a suffering for the sins of the whole world as prophesied and attested by John the Baptist, whom Jesus named as Elijah. The apostles then testified and gave their lives standing firm in their testimony they fellow-shipped with Jesus after he had been dead, then raised again to life. The count now is estimated to be 2.4 Billion.
Lukewarm! Laodicea Commands of Christ at Revelation 3: 14-21.”
To the Church in Laodicea
14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (NIV)
These churches all, still exist in one form or another and all these exhortations, rebukes, revelations and instructions revealed to John in the vision Jesus gave him still apply in our day. The days of the Laodicean church age.
An age of lukewarmness now, as he prophesied and which makes the Lord, Jesus Christ, sick and on the verge of vomiting. He views the church in General, in our day like “bad meat” in a container in your refrigerator. I get it!
Paul was appointed by Jesus, himself as the apostle to Gentiles, their rulers and the people of Israel. Acts 9: 15 is in red letters. Jesus did this just before Israel and the temple and the law were destroyed as he prophesied.
Paul received his gospel by revelation from Jesus Christ. There are gobs of alleged preachers who know John 3: 16 (they don’t read 17) and the short excerpts from James (later self corrected, “faith without works is dead” and then reverting to Moses, James writing the letter in Acts 15 and you’d better read it … all of acts 15).
Jesus appointing Paul because he had not come to export the confused teaching of a brood of vipers who’d promoted themselves as superior to everyone else through misusing the law and their position.
My Laodicean Vacation
Saved at age 22 I walked into a church and of course not being one of those brand of the superior, from birth legacy entitled, I got the pat on the head.
The day I was born again, I was living in my dad’s house where he examined my new life up close and personal. Was I instantaneously perfect? No. Was I transformed? You bet. A few months after I was saved, I invited my mom and dad to church with me.
A preacher I knew, who is on fire, visited my dad a week or so after the visit. I watched as he led my dad to Jesus, my own dad, thank you Lord. On his knees in our living room, I had the unusual pleasure of watching my dad declare Jesus as Lord and receive salvation by faith in Jesus Christ.
That’s called bearing fruit. But that’s not good enough for Laodicea. They’ll make the excuse , “well there are all sorts of fruit.” Like teaching in seminaries and producing others who don’t either bear any fruit? More self help Christian books to help explain the words in the book the Lord has given us. Then more books?
This while I was being taught to be as lukewarm as these were so I’d become a complacent member of “THE AUDIENCE.” Don’t forget your checkbook! Remember we used to have missionaries but now we struggle to pay bills in out million dollar white flight mansions on the edge of town in the lucrative neighborhoods.
The Lord has ways of cleansing the smell of rotten meat off of his servants. And after accurately foretelling the future to one thousand of them (Isaiah 46: 8-13) and returning as hardly any AUDIENCE POTATO, any longer, they set out to make me lukewarm for them again.
No Prophet Has Honor In His Home Town
Thank God, I read and learned the things actually in the Bible; rather than the moldy bread of commentaries and the words of the church fathers or even the preachers I’d met, with their commentaries (useful for many of them as) replacement for the Holy Spirit.
Reading the Bible thereafter with a focused attentiveness on the prophetic fore-telling of the Lord, proven to me personally by Jesus himself, I have out-shined them all as a mechanical engineer solving word problems God boasted are there and which will stop Jewish Rabbis in their tracks proving beyond any doubt OBJECTIVELY Jesus Christ is their messiah.
Yawn. That was their lukewarm response. Everybody knows, I guess, the Pope is the antichrist (no he’s not, but he is one of those prophesied players) although currently he reads the writing on the wall and tries to bring all faiths together, especially Muslims, under the catholic church, a disaster for billions of deceived in the making) an antichrist but not the antichrist. The lukewarm protestant leadership remains silent. As usual Lord, I have to carry the ball.
Chapter One in my soon to be released book proves beyond any doubt, mathematically as God foretold; and, my mentor Isaac Newton tried to prove. From Newton’s seat in history before the May 15, 1948 restoration of Israel and the other key being the June 6, 1967 retaking of Israel, Newton could not solve the math. A few solved it. I got wind of it. So I am passing the gas along.
Our lukewarm clergy yawn and think this is a mere novelty, however, the angel said this to Daniel in 12: 3, 4:
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” (NIV)
So being far from lukewarm myself, I will continue in attempt to “… shine like the brightness of the heaven and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. …”
Here is the Objective Evidence for Jews, Christians and Muslims. Escape the coming wrath before it is too late. Seek the Lord with your whole heart and you will find him.
Jesus, Making The Indictment Stick
Because He Did It.
COMES Now the Lord by and through his undersigned attorney (a talking donkey) and brings this objective evidence to convict his Son as Messiah and Lord:
Abomination Of Desolation
Exhibit A: Matthew 24: 15, 16, Jesus speaking:
“So, when you see standing in the holy place the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of through the prophet Daniel – let the reader understand – 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house.” (NIV)
So, Jesus points to a mysterious part of the Scriptures, telling us we must understand something contained in the book of Daniel where the abomination that causes desolation was foretold in chapter 12:
Daniel 12: 9-13:
“He [Angel Gabriel] replied, ‘Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.’
11 “From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of 1,335 days.”
13 “As for you, go your way til the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive you allotted inheritance.” (NIV)
We have a word problem. Trust the engineer, BSME, it’s a word problem. It even foretells that among others, there would be people like myself coming along and showing what it means to you; called the wise (I Corinthians 1: 20-32) They all thought he was kidding:
Daniel 12: 3, 4:
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” (NIV)
So, let’s solve the word problem. The statement of the problem: 1, 290 days will pass from the sacrifice being abolished until the “abomination of desolation is set up.” It’s a structure. An altar? That is what the angel Gabriel said to Daniel.
Let’s find out. During Daniel’s lifetime, Nebuchadnezzar abolished the sacrifice in 583 B.C. (BCE if you like). Daniel lived before the Julian (45 B.C. Caesar’s Calendar was Eleven minutes too long) and Gregorian (Pope Gregory fixed the 11 minutes, giving rise the Sabbatarian Heresies (LOL)) (anything to rightly DIVIDE THE BODY OF CHRIST) Calendars under the ancient lunar calendar(s) of Israel and Babylon. Lunar calendars give 30 days per month. Gregorian solar calendar is what we use now and it is 365.24 days long.
So=> 360/365.24 = 0.9857 our conversion factor to reconcile things for correlation with the calendar in our day with the ancient calendars for our understanding.
Now taking 1, 290 days as years per the Lord’s words to Ezekiel in Ez. Chapter 4: 5:
“I have assigned you the same number of days as the years of their sin. So, for 390 days you will bear the sin of the people of Israel.” (NIV) [Example of God’s instruction to Ezekiel]
So: 1, 290 X .9857 = 1271.5 Now 1271.5 -583 = 688.5 A.D. (a very significant date that miraculously matches what Jesus’ and John’s words (Mt. 24; Rev. 11) are from long before the events perfectly. Watch! First, let’s look at John from Revelation 11.
Exhibit C: John in Revelation 11: 1, 2:
“I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, ‘Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. 2 But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.’” (NIV)
We know, from recent history, when the 42 months ended. June 6, 1967 when the Jews retook the temple. John wrote after the Julian Solar Calendar.
John’s months are 365.24/12 = 30.44 days per month.
So => 30.44 x 42 = 1, 278.5 => 1967- 1,278.5 = 688.5 (again)
Exhibits A, B and C prove these FACTS: Jesus, Daniel and John all speaking of the temple site correlate through word problems spoken before and after Jesus who pointed us to them correlating to 688.5. It was the year in history when the temple mount was cleared to found the Dome of The Rock. The “abomination that causes desolation was ‘set up.’”
Explain to us, Dr. Bart D. Ehrman, Evolutionists, Unbelievers, Jews, Muslims, tell us, how did Jesus know this math problem was there in Daniel? It could not be solved until after the 1967 retaking of the temple was fulfilled otherwise, I would not know how to decipher the count. But Jesus did know it was there and pointed me, among others, and all people for two millennia, exactly to it.
Jesus points exactly there in about 32 A.D. forward to an event foretold 600 years before he was born, as a man, and that would not reach fulfillment until 688 A.D., but would be a mystery until 1967 and this is confirmed by the prophet/apostle (John) speaking also with the angel [of things not possibly to be understood and confirmed until 1967]. John hearing the angel 60 years after Jesus’ earthly life with his disciples, also correlating perfectly. It is miraculous and incredible.
Exhibit D: The Dome of the Rock is covered with the blasphemous things predicted, by Paul. 2 Thessalonians 2: 2-12”
“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.” (NIV)
On the Dome of the (wrong) Rock, a threshing floor is a perfectly smooth rock:
“O People of the Book! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor speak concerning allah save the truth. The Messiah, Son of Mary, was only a Messenger of allah, and his word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in allah and his messengers, and say not Three-Cease! It is better for you! – allah is only one god.” “Far be it removed from his transcendent majesty that He should have a son.”
“Maintaining his creation in justice, there is no god save him, the almighty, the wise, Lo! Religion with allah is islam. Those who formerly received the Book differed only after knowledge came unto them, through transgression among themselves. Whoever disbelieves the revelations of allah will find that Lo! Allah is swift at reckoning.”
Clearly fulfilling Paul’s prediction “…the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”
Daniel 9: 27 confirms this (unless you read the KJV, interesting):
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” [Incoherent to the modern mind]
Daniel 9: 27 from NIV and all other major translations confirm this abomination set up at the temple:
“He [“…people of the ruler who will come…” verse 26] will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven’ … And on a wing of the temple, he will set up an abomination that causes desolation … .”
The Dome has Declarations, denying Jesus as the Son of God all over it both inside and out. It sits in the outer court called the Court of the Gentiles, exactly where Jesus, Daniel and John in correlation said it would sit after their earthly lifetimes. Add the math Jesus also pointed directly too which is laid out above and is a mathematical proof worthy of Sir Isaac Newton’s in physics. We have taken this out of the realm of subjective to the realm of Objective Evidence Jesus is in fact Almighty God.
God demonstrated this, in this fashion for Jews showing you that Daniel and John (humans) received their revelation from Angels whereas Jesus, without words from any angel pointed to this math in Daniel 12, which correlates with John in Revelation 11. Children can understand this. (See: Isaiah 46: 8-13).
In Islam it is claimed the scriptures were corrupted but that is utter nonsense, we know Daniel’s words existed from around 200 B.C. (BCE if you like) from the Dead Sea scrolls (95% accurate to modern text) the scrolls discovered in 1947. (Did Christians and Jews rewrite the Bible between 1947 and 2002? Muslim scholars?)
We know for certain the gospel according to Matthew and Revelation existed, in their current form, before 610 A.D. (Dr. Bart Ehrman would agree) when the alleged revelation of Islam came forth. None of the Bible has been re-written since 610 A.D. So, these claims are complete and inaccurate nonsense. There are 5800 extant Greek Manuscripts and many other manuscripts in other languages.
John, apostle of Jesus: I John 2: 22, 23:
“Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist – denying the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.” (NIV)
John MacArthur (not endorsing him, nor criticizing him) has a very good coherent video presentation of all of this on Youtube. Search: The Mahdi is The Antichrist – Pastor John MacArthur. Find it here: AntiChrist
Chris Queen Quote: “I can objectively convict Jesus as the Son of God in any reasonable court of law.”
