"Are We At The End?"

Chapter 2, Part 2a

As we continue in our study on last day events and the signs of the end of this earth age, let’s summarize what we have learned so far:

A.  The church of Jesus Christ are the only chosen people of God, and in order to become a part of this chosen family you must be born again or born from above. {See John 3:1-18}

B.  The blessing of God is on the church of Jesus Christ, and in order to receive the blessing you must receive Jesus as Lord and Savior. {See Galatians 3:13-14}

C.  The church of Jesus Christ are God’s elect people, and in order to be a part of the elect of God, you must be washed in the blood of Jesus Christ. {See 1 Peter 1:2}

D.  The true Israel of God is the church of Jesus Christ, and in order to be a part of Israel you must be born again. {See Galatians 6:15-16}

E.  Being a part of God’s chosen people has absolutely nothing to do with biological race; you must know Jesus as Lord and Savior in order to have a relationship with God, our heavenly Father. {See Galatians 3:26-29}

F.  There is only one way to God our Father, and that is through Jesus. There is no other way. {See John 14:1-6}

G.  The master plan of satan is to manifest a false messiah (antichrist) empowered by the spirit of deception, and take the whole world captive. {See II Thessalonians 2:7-12}

One of the greatest deceptions that I once believed and taught, because I accepted it as scriptural was that when the state of Israel was established in 1948 that it started God’s countdown to the end of this age. However, after much prayer and meditation I found this also to be a false teaching. Before I go into much detail, allow me to simply state this truth:  God’s countdown, His working, His Kingdom and Will, His way of demonstrating His desire in the earth is through the Church that has been washed in the blood of Jesus:

"Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in Himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will: That we should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ.” {Ephesians 1:9-12}

"And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:” {Ephesians 3:9-11}

The reason this issue is so important is that if you accept this teaching and belief concerning the natural state of Israel, you will also be looking and watching what is going on in this geographical region rather than looking and watching what is happening within the true church of Jesus Christ. Within this area of belief, many still hold to the erroneous teaching that natural Israel is God’s chosen people, and whatever happens there is a sign to all mankind.

In the early church they clearly understood who God would work through; would speak through; would show forth His signs and wonders through; and would work His eternal purpose through: the blood bought church. When Jesus had the Apostle John pen the revelation that Jesus wanted released in the earth, those letters were written to the seven churches, not natural Israel. Matter of fact, if you would read those seven letters, you would clearly see that the revelation of who Jesus is; what Jesus wanted believed and declared; what would be the rewards of the consequences of disobedience and rebellion; what would be the rewards to the faithful and obedient; what to do in the midst of persecution and adversity; how to overcome and walk in His victory; ALL OF THESE DECLARATIONS WERE MADE TO THE CHURCH, NOT NATURAL ISRAEL.

What this clearly tells us is this: the Kingdom of God and the will of God would be manifested through the Church of Jesus Christ, and the only way that natural Israel could be a part of this is by receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior; not by claiming to have an ancestral heritage that made them special in the sight of God our Father. Hear me well: natural Israel can only experience a relationship with God through Jesus, and can only be a part of God’s royal priesthood through the shed blood of Christ Jesus. {I Peter 2:9}

In order to see it for what it really is, I put Part II of chapter 2 in this section, because upon being released from incarceration, I had serious questions on how natural Israel became a statehood to begin with in 1948. I knew that the Holy Spirit was leading me to research this matter in depth, because so much of what is taught as eschatology and last days teaching is based on this premise. My suspicions were proven to be accurate, because by doing just a little research and not accepting what I had been previously led to believe, I found the following:

**The attempt to restore natural Israel since 1948 is a Zionist movement by Marxist/Communist false Jews who are led by the international banking cartel.

**The Illuminati by war and bloodshed put Israel back onto the map in 1948 as a vehicle to control the kings of the world.

**The way that Israel would rule over the kings of the earth would be through the international banking cartel; religious deception; educational deception; and governmental deception. {Don’t forget these 4 very important areas.}

**One of the official headquarters is The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR).

**The Illuminati was organized by Adam Weishaupt, who was born Jewish, then converted to Catholicism and became a Catholic priest. At the newly-organized House of Rothschild, he defected and organized the Illuminati. It was the Rothschilds that financed this operation and every war since then, beginning with the French Revolution, and has been promoted by the Illuminati operating under various names and illusions.

**The word “Illuminati”is derived from “Lucifer” and means “holder of the light."

**In 1945 the conspirators achieved the “United Nations.” This organization’s true agenda is to bring forth a one-world government through a New World Order.

**The ruling family and money behind establishing the natural state of Israel is the Rothschilds. It has been well documented that the Rothschilds own 80% of Israel. [DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.]

**The Rothschild's Zionist family owns Israel, after the infamous Balfour Declaration of 1917, and they are behind today’s massacre of the Palestinians.
