The Anti-Christ Peace Deal?

I have shown you before that Daniel 9:26 says nothing about a 'peace deal' with Israel. This is the way the Septuagint (the most accurate copy of the OT we have) says:

Dan 9:27 And one week shall establish the covenant with many: and in the midst of the week my sacrifice and drink-offering shall be taken away: and on the temple shall be the abomination of desolations; and at the end of time an end shall be put to the desolation.

Clearly there is no "he" in there, so "he" aka the anti-christ isn't establishing a covenant with anybody in Dan 9:26. The bible says ONE WEEK, or 7 years, establishes the covenant with...MANY, not Israel.

Now that we've debunked the idea of the bible saying there will be a 7 year peace deal between the anti-christ and Israel, lets debunk that idea some more, shall we?

Rev 6 shows us what's going on during the opening salvo of the tribulation, and what do we see in Rev 6? I see war, death, hell, and famine, but gosh, I see NOTHING about peace, how can that be? Have'nt we been told that the anti-christ will destroy many by peace?

Well, the bible does'nt say that either, here's what it does say:
Dan 8:25 And the yoke of his chain shall prosper: there is craft in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by craft shall destroy many, and he shall stand up for the destruction of many, and shall crush them as eggs in his hand

You see anything there about 'peace?'

Back to Rev 6 which shows us clearly how the tribulation starts. The word peace is NOT mentioned anywhere, what is the first thing mentioned?

Rev 6 1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2 And I saw, and behold 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.

I don't know what bible other people are reading, but this bible says 1. The anti-christ shows up, with a BOW in his hand. 2 He's given a crown 3. He goes forth CONQUERING and to conquer. That sound like 'peace' to you?

If the first thing we see anti-christ doing, is going forth CONQUERING, and to conquer, even if he made a peace deal, would'nt the people signing the deal be looking over anti-christs shoulder saying "hmm, wow, look at all the dead bodies from all the conquering...that won't be us too will it?"

The bottom line is this: The anti-christ shows up and the first thing he does is go to WAR, that's what conquering, and to conquer means. In case you had any doubts, the guy has a BOW in his hand, that is a WEAPON OF WAR, or at the minimum a symbol of war. But he does'nt have any arrows they say, to which I say, what general do you know that takes his sidearm to the front lines and shoots? His soldiers fight for him, he does'nt even need to string the bow, much less have arrows.

The next things to happen are the escape and WAR. Through CRAFT the anti-christ destroys many, not through peace. The bible says "who can make war with the beast?" and "he destroys wonderfully." I have read alot about this anti-christ figure and I see nothing, absolutely ZERO about some great peacemaker. I do read alot about how the anti-christ is good at deceit and war. Does that surprise anybody? The devil is a superior liar and war maker? Where does this 'peace' schtick come from? It's more deception, to keep your eyes looking one way, while all the action is going on somewhere else.

After the escape, when many so called christians are left behind, the devil will have a lie ready to tell them they were'nt left behind. When the anti-christ is making war, war and MORE war throughout the earth, he'll be telling so called christianity to keep looking for a peace deal because that's how they'll 'really know' who the anti-christ is. More deception, and they'll buy it hook, line and sinker.

At what point do you decide you are sick and tired of being lied to by churchianity? Every day, a new layer of deception is pulled back to see how rotten and sick so called christianity is in this world. 2 out of 7 churches were found in a place acceptable to Jesus in Rev 2-3. Only one of those churches will be able to 'be kept from the hour of trial coming on all the earth' Rev 3:10.

The teachers and preachers of churchianity tell you that homosexuals, the disobedient and faithless will all get to go in the escape. Is that what being counted worthy means in Luke 21:36? Does Matt 7:14 indicate to us that 'many' will escape or a FEW? Did all the virgins get to go to the wedding in Matt 25, or just the ones with "oil in their lamps?" People need to figure out what it means to be "IN CHRIST." A good place to start is John 15 which clearly lays out what the deal is with an explanation of the vine and the branches. It could not be any clearer.

Have you ever heard the saying "forewarned is forearmed?" Well, you've been forewarned.

As an aside to all this let me remind you, that I am warning myself as much as I'm warning you. I take this all very seriously.

So called christianity is busy telling you that homosexuals will escape in the rapture, while the bible is giving you an entirely different perspective on how high the bar is set. Consider this:

Luke 18:18 And a certain ruler questioned him, saying, 'Good teacher, what having done -- shall I inherit life age-during?' 19 And Jesus said to him, 'Why me dost thou call good? no one is good, except One -- God;

Jesus rebukes this guy for calling him good! Instead, Jesus points to the Father and says "He's good." This is Jesus Christ himself, our Lord and Master saying "why do you call me good?" and Jesus was PERFECT in all his ways. That's how high the bar is set.

I'll go back to it again, you MUST ask yourself WHY will only a FEW make it through the narrow gate (Matt 7:14)? WHY?

grace and peace
