Thus, God said "LET SEVEN (7) TIMES PASS OVER IT".( Dan 4:16). This "seven times" in case of Nebuchadnezzar represents just seven years of which his kingdom was interrupted, but since Nebuchadnezzar is not the lowliest one of which God promise he will give the kingdom of the world in verse 17, so the seven times is prophetic regarding when Christ will be given the kingdom after the seven times ends.

Till When Did Shiloh Come?

The same vision of Nebuchadnezzar hold the answer,.

God said that the tree will be cut down but it root will remain bond or restricted to grow. Because God used Nebuchadnezzar to destroyed the kingship of David in Israel, that is why the initial fulfillment of this prophecy applied to him. Thus, God said "LET SEVEN (7) TIMES PASS OVER IT".( Dan 4:16).

This "seven times" in case of Nebuchadnezzar represents just seven years of which his kingdom was interrupted, but since Nebuchadnezzar is not the lowliest one of which God promise he will give the kingdom of the world in verse 17, so the seven times is prophetic regarding when Christ will be given the kingdom after the seven times ends. We will have to learn how long this prophetic seven times is, when it begone and ended?

When it ended was when Christ was enthroned as the legal one to rule on the throne of David forever.

Before going ahead, let us summarize the major points already discoursed.


1. After Adamic sin, God promised a deliverer who will latter rule and undo all the effect of sin.
2. To understand when he will be given the kingship, we must understand Daniel 4. In that prophetic vision, God reiterated that he will set up the promised one over the kingdom of the world.
3. The tree in that vision represents God's eternal sovereignty over the earth which the kings in Israel symbolized. When God allowed Nebuchadnezzar to destroy Jerusalem, that world power was conferred on him, that is why the initial fulfillment applied to him.
4. After a prophetic Seven (7) Times passed, God will restore the ruler ship represented by the root of the tree. In the case of Nebuchadnezzar, it was a literal seven years but in the case of the promised one, the number is prophetic.
5. To know the year the promised one was given the kingdom by God, we have to know how long the Seven times is, when it began and when it ended.

When Did The Seven Times Began?

The ruler ship in Israel,the means God used in punishing other nations was put to a stop when God allowed Nebuchadnezzar to destroyed Jerusalem. That was the year the tree in the vision regarding the throne of David was cut down. God now decree that no more human king on that throne until the promised one, Shiloh comes.

Read Ezekiel 21:25-7.

It Says " a ruin, a ruin, a ruin i shall make it (the throne of David), it will certainly becomes no one's until Shiloh comes, and i must give it to him". (NWT)


The seven times began when Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Israel and took them to Babylon for seventy years as decreed by Jehovah. And after the seventy years, they will return says Jerem29:10. and Dan 9:2.
History tells us that the Jews returned from Babylon on 537 B.C. That means seventy years back is on 607 B.C-that was the year Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the kingship of David in Israel. So that marks the beginning of the seven times that will pass before the kingship of David will be restored.

Note: Secular historian disagree on 607 being the year Jerusalem was destroy, instead putting it on 587 B.C. a 20 years different. Making the 70 years in Jerem. 29:10 a 50 years instead of 70. But the year 607 is calculated directly from the bible by summing the life age of bible character from Adam till the destruction of Jerusalem. So either the bible is wrong or the historians are wrong. But the bible can't be wrong, it is in harmony with accurate history.

So starting from 607 B.C, how long is the seven times?

Calculating The Prophetic Times

THE bible shows that in counting prophetic times, a day is represented by a year. (Ezek 4:6. Num 14:34-Read). So how many days are in seven times or seven years?
Rev 11:2,3 shows that 42 months i.e 3 1/2 ( three and half years) is equal to 1,260 days. Therefore seven (7) times, i.e 84 months will equal to twice 1,260 days. Which is 1,260 multiply by 2 =2,520 days.

Applying the principle of "a day for a year" rule. 2,520 days will be 2,520 years.
So when God said, "let seven times pass" at Dan 4:16, he meant let 2,520 years pass before Shiloh will be given the throne of David. This means that the gentiles will dominate the ruler ship till 2,520 years is passed.

Jesus Christ himself confirmed this at Luke 21:24, Jesus said: “Jerusalem will be trampled on by the nations until the appointed times of the nations [“the times of the Gentiles,” King James Version] are fulfilled".

This mean that by the time Jesus was on earth, the Gentiles were still holding on, on the ruler ship and the seven times has not ended yet. This is true considering that the world power at that time was not the Jews but the Romans, a Gentile nation. That is why Jesus apostles asked him:

"Lord are you restoring the kingdom to Israel at this time?", the answer Jesus gave them proved that he was fully aware of Daniel's prophecy regarding the 'seven times'. (Read Acts 1:6-8)
This domination of the gentiles began with Nebuchadnezzar in 607 B.C.E. So counting backward, this is the calculation;

From 607 B.C.E minus 606yrs brings us to 1 B.C.E.

Note: Before the coming of Christ, years were minus instead of adding, (B.C.E is before the common era and C.E is common era. Some call it before Christ era and Christ era)

This means that we have only misused 606yrs from 2,520yr, (seven times) remains 1,914yrs.

Then from 1 B.C.E to 1 C.E= 1yrs, remain 1,913yrs. ( Since there is no zero year, 1 B.C.E to 1 C.E is 1 year)

Then from 1 C.E + 1,913yrs= 1,914 C.E.
I.e 606+1+1,913 yrs=2,520 yrs.

Therefore, the Seven times of Daniel's prophecy ends on near October 1914 C.E, Christ the king was enthroned in heaven above. The same time period the world war 1 began.
That is exactly the year Satan and his demons was cast out of heaven and down on earth by Christ and that marked the beginning of the "last days".

If you disagree with Jehovah's Witnesses on the above chronology, don't worry.

As I have earlier promised, I am going to discourse the date of Christ enthronement from another direction, without mentioning any historic or chronological date so that you will know that there is a definite date that the bible indicate Christ was enthroned after his ascension even as we have examined.

At the end of the discussion that will now follow, you will be left on a stage to either agree on the chronology regarding 1914 or you tell us when it was.

Chronology

Do you agree or disagree on the above biblical chronology?

 I agree. I think the biblical evidence is enough to believe it
 I disagree. I think it lack biblical evidence to believe it to be true
 There are as much evidence to support the historic date of 587 as there are also to support the 607 chronology, I still don't know which to go with

When Did Christ Ruler ship Began?

Without going through any chronology, history and calculations about the seven times of Daniel prophecy, we can still know the time period that "seven times" of Daniel prophecy came to an end. How? By looking into the pages of the bible direct.

Let us go back to some scriptural verses we have mentioned earlier.

First. Before Jesus birth, the angel Gabriel emphasis that 'God will give him the throne of David his father'. Luke 1:32-4.

We only need to ask; was the kingdom given to Christ while he was on earth? ( about 2 or 4 C.E to 33 C.E)

We surely no the answer is no considering the question his disciples asked him at Acts 1:6. So we have to look for the answer in another time period.

Was the kingdom given to him after his resurrection, immediately he ascended to heaven? (from 33-70 C.E) The answer is still no. We must now reason from the scriptures.

The prophecy of Daniel regarding the seventy weeks involving the Messiah's appearance and being cut off shows that the Messiah will, "keep the covenant...in force for one week" even though he will be cut off in the half of that week. Dan. 9:27. (one week is seven 7yrs when counted a week for a year, a week for a year, and half of the week is three and half years)

Jesus was 30 years when he began his ministry in the fall of 29 C.E (Luke 4:23) and he served for only three and half years before his death in 33 C.E. But he kept the covenant* in force for the Jews till the end of the one week, that is about 36 C.E, after that year God no longer accept animal sacrifice on the bases of the old covenant, since Jesus has offered a better sacrifice.

Thus, till 70 C.E when the seventy weeks ended, the Davidic throne was not given to Christ even as he ascended. You ask why?



* The covenant Jesus kept in force for the Jews till the end of the week is the animal sacrifice made by the Jews for their sins. Since Christ gave his life for mankind sins such sacrifice was no longer acceptable to God, so it ended at the end of the seventy weeks.

Sit At My Right Hand

Since God did not give Jesus the kingdom immediately he ascended, what role then did Jesus started playing from year 33 C.E when he ascended? In fact, how did we know that God did not gave Jesus the ruler ship immediately he ascended?

The answer can be seen in Psalms 110:1, a prophecy regarding the Messiah. As he ascended, Yahweh gave him a role;

" sit at my right hand until I place your enemies as a stool to your feet".


How do we know when this prophecy began to fulfill, after or before Christ ascension?

Apostle Peter in Acts 2:31,32 shows that it was at Jesus' ascension on 33 C.E that this prophecy began to have its fulfillment.But what is this 'siting at God's right hand'? it is not a literal siting but a role to play. what is this role? Is it that of ruling as the king over the heaven and earth?

No. It was not yet time at that point. How do we know?

Acts 2:33 tells us what the role when it says that 'Christ received the promised holy spirit...he poured to his disciples'. Thus at his ascension, Jesus was keenly interested in helping his newly founded congregation on earth, and that is the role God granted him the authority to begin taking care of as can be seen in Colossians 1:13, 18, not ruling as king of the heaven and earth.

As can be seen in Psalm 110:1, Jesus is to sit "until"......

What does that denote? That after the period represented by "until" ends, and by then his enemies (Satan and the demons) will have been cast out of heaven, then Jesus will be granted another role in conjunction with the one he is playing already, isn't it?

But peter only quoted verse one of Psalm 110 about the role Jesus began playing in heaven from 33 C.E but he left open the second role.

So what will happen as the period marked by "UNTIL" ends? Let us see.

GO, Rule In The Midst Of Your Enemies

As the period represented by "until" ends, Satan and his demons were foot-stool to Christ's feet as they were cast out of heaven to the earth. See Isai 66:1 and Rev 12:9.

Then comes the command:

"Go, rule in the midst of your enemies" (Satan, the demons and Human rulers) Psalm 110:2

Then comes the voices;

"now have come...the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ". Rev 12:10 (see the first article in this series to learn who have the voices)

Thus, as can be seen from Psalms 110:1,2, it is after the period of time represented by "until" ended was Christ granted the authority or power to rule as king, the legal one or Shiloh spoken by Daniel Prophecy in chapter 4:17 who is 'set up' at the end of the "seven times".

Thus when did the time marked by "until" ended?

Is The End Near? Why Did God Waited?

Now we ask; When will the period of time marked by "until".... from 33 C.E when Jesus ascended to heaven till the command "Go rule in the midst of your enemies" bring us to in the streams of time?

In accord with all the prophecies considered, the end of the "until" from 33 C,E will still bring us to the end of the "seven times" or 2,520 years of Daniel prophecy (from Jerusalem's destruction) the end of the Gentile's time or domination over the ruler ship of God before Shiloh takes over.

If you disagree that 1914 is the end of the seven Gentile's time from Jerusalem destruction in 607 CB.C.E, please calculate the length of "UNTIL" from 33 C.E and tell us WHEN it will bring you to in the stream of time, then that is exactly when Christ was enthroned, Satan cast down, thus the beginning of the "last days of this our present system of things.



Thus, the end of the world is very closer than you ever think as long as Christ has been enthroned in the heavenly kingdom of God, Satan cast to the earth, this mean the end is at hand.

There are historic evidences that really proves that 1914 was exactly the year the Gentile's time ended and the ruler ship of the world was taken away from them as it was taken away from Nebuchadnezzar, and given to Christ.

Yes, I know the question on your mind.

If the ruler ship of the world had been taken away from the Gentiles and given to Christ, why are the Gentiles still governing the world till now?

I Know The Year Jesus Was Made King. Part 2

Prophecies Pointing To Christ Ruler ship


Adam sinned, God promised a deliverer who will come to undo the effect of Adamic sin. (Genes 3:15)

. He will come through the linage of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Genes 22:18: Numb 24:17,18: genes 17:19. Rom 9:7)

He will be a descendant of king David and will finally rule on the throne representing David in heaven forever- ps 89:3,4. Isai 9:6-9. Ps 72.

But when will he be given this kingship? The vision of king Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4 contains the answer. The vision of the immense tree involves Christ and when he will be given the kingdom of the world. The tree represents the SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD OVER THE EARTH as symbolized by the kingship of David in Israel. But when God allowed Nebuchadnezzar to destroy Jerusalem, the ruling power now rest on Nebuchadnezzar, but in the same vision, God promised that he is going to give the ruler ship to someone else who will represent him forever. Read Dan 4:17.

It Says: "To the intent that people living may know that the most high is RULER in the kingdom of mankind and.....he gives and set up over it the LOWLIEST ONE OF MANKIND".

So finally, God will set up over his kingdom the lowliest one of mankind- Christ. But when?

All the king who ruled in Judah of Jerusalem represents God and his ruler ship according to 2king 24:17. But God stopped choosing human king starting from the ruler ship of Zedekiah the last human king on David throne, God allowed Babylonians to conquer Israel, from that year on, there were no human king representing God again, UNTIL the legal one or Shiloh comes.

Text
Till When Did Shiloh Come?
The same vision of Nebuchadnezzar hold the answer,.

God said that the tree will be cut down but it root will remain bond or restricted to grow. Because God used Nebuchadnezzar to destroyed the kingship of David in Israel, that is why the initial fulfillment of this prophecy applied to him. Thus, God said "LET SEVEN (7) TIMES PASS OVER IT".( Dan 4:16).

This "seven times" in case of Nebuchadnezzar represents just seven years of which his kingdom was interrupted, but since Nebuchadnezzar is not the lowliest one of which God promise he will give the kingdom of the world in verse 17, so the seven times is prophetic regarding when Christ will be given the kingdom after the seven times ends. We will have to learn how long this prophetic seven times is, when it begone and ended?

When it ended was when Christ was enthroned as the legal one to rule on the throne of David forever.

Text
Before going ahead, let us summarize the major points already discoursed.


1. After Adamic sin, God promised a deliverer who will latter rule and undo all the effect of sin.
2. To understand when he will be given the kingship, we must understand Daniel 4. In that prophetic vision, God reiterated that he will set up the promised one over the kingdom of the world.
3. The tree in that vision represents God's eternal sovereignty over the earth which the kings in Israel symbolized. When God allowed Nebuchadnezzar to destroy Jerusalem, that world power was conferred on him, that is why the initial fulfillment applied to him.
4. After a prophetic Seven (7) Times passed, God will restore the ruler ship represented by the root of the tree. In the case of Nebuchadnezzar, it was a literal seven years but in the case of the promised one, the number is prophetic.
5. To know the year the promised one was given the kingdom by God, we have to know how long the Seven times is, when it began and when it ended.

So starting from 607 B.C, how long is the seven times?

I know The Year Jesus Was Made King I Heaven.-Part 1

Was Christ Really Made King In Year 1914?

In fact, was Jesus really made king in heaven on 1914?

Jehovah;s Witnesses teaches from the bible that Jesus Christ was enthroned in heaven as king of God's kingdom in 1914. Many do not understand this bible teaching. Some think its a mystery. But through this article I will prove to you that Christ enthronement in 1914 is a biblical fact, a sacred secret of God not a falsehood nor mystery.

This is the continuation of the article titled The Last Days Enigma On 1914: A Mystery Or A Holy Secret? (please read first)

The following are the main points already considered.

The last days of any system of things (ages) is always before the destruction or the end of that system.

The first century Christians lived in the last days of Jerusalem's destruction which evidently began in 33 C.E (Joel 2:28-32. Acts 2:17)

Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy, where he made mention of "in the last days" while the last days of Jerusalem destruction had already begone, making his word to have a future implications. If he was not referring to a future last days, he should have said 'in this last days' instead of "in the last days" (2 Tim 3:1)

The length of the "last days" of this our system of things, corresponds to the length of the 'short period of time' left for Devil before he will be made inactive. Thus both started and will end at the same time period-Armageddon (Rev 12:9, 10, 12. 16:14-16)

To know when the "last days" or end time started, we have to first know when Satan was cast down to the earth and restricted from having access to heaven, thus the beginning of the short period of time.

Satan and his demons were hurled down to the earth at the same time period God's kingdom (the heavenly ruler ship) and the authority of his Christ ( Christ's enthronement) went into effect, thus the start of the Satan's short period of time.

Thus the "last days" began when Christ's authority as the king of God's kingdom in heaven began, that is when he was enthrone by God as the rightful king of that kingdom even as the angel have stated to merry in Luke 1:32-4.

Just as I said in that first article, I repeat again that am going to present to you the bible chronological calculation used by Jehovah's witnesses to arrive in year 1914 as the year Christ became king.

Second, I will then discourse the matter purely from the bible discarding any historic or chronological date, in other to prove to you that actually there is a pivotal, definite date in the bible when Chris was enthroned in heaven.

At the end you will be left with just two options; Either you accept that 1914 is scriptural as the date Christ was enthroned, or you tell us when it was.

Hypnosis: Should A Christian Practice It?

The Day And The Night Veraion



Listening to hypnosis message

According to the claim of the so-called hypnosis cassettes makers, 'one side of the cassettes contains the day version and the other side, the night version. The day version contain music composed for your particular problem and should be played often', says the manufacturers, 'even when a person is not consciously listening', why? "it purpose is to make the mind more receptive to the message of the night version" claims the makers.

The night version, it is suggested, should be played only when one can relax, preferably while retiring at night. After a short time, the voice of a hypnotist will lull you into a deep sleep. Your subconscious mind never sleeps, says one advertisement, so it will be receptive to his message even while you are asleep.

However, contrary to the above claim, Alan Baddeley, director of The British Medical Research Council's Applied Unit in Cambridge, England, once wrote that the subconscious mind is limited in what it can accomplish. He said that texts disprove the effectiveness of the so-called sleep-teaching systems.

He then drew his conclusion by saying: "it appears then that if you wish to learn, it is advisable to be conscious at then".

The More Important Aspect To Consider


So we ask, what exactly is the link or connection of such cassettes with hypnotism? This is an important aspect to consider. Surrendering one's mind and will to another person, in this case, the hypnotist, can be very dangerous. Since the answer to overcoming weaknesses does not lie in allowing our mind to be manipulated by music and the voice of an unknown people.

Where The Answer Lies


The fact is that the answer lies in our gaining the accurate knowledge of our maker, the creator. Following the leading of his spirit and his book. if not, one will be surrendering his mind and will to the evil spirit to be controlled.

Working For God or Workers of Iniquity? Part III

Reasons Why You Must Be Careful of Church Leaders and Those Performing Signs and Wonders Today.

This is the part III in the series article titled "Working for God or Workers of Iniquity?"  Each part begins with the question bellow;

Have you ever tried to understand the main reason(s) why any  who calls himself (in this articles masculine gender "he, himself" is used for easy reading but it applies to both genders) a 'man of God' today struggles very hard to make sure he performs mirracles?

The following are their three major aim and objectives.

1. To convince the masses that he is a true man of God, anoited, called or chosen by God to do his work.

2. To attract prospective followers who is convinced on his calling.

3. To become wealthy. Either you take it or not, that is the ultimate reason why many of the men of God globaly today are doing all they can to perform signs and wonders.

While it is true that they are achieving this goals well arranged to accomplish their aim. However, it is a lie that because one performs mirracles proves he is called and chosen by God to work for him, and thus a true follower of Christ.

This brings us to a very important question;

Is Mirracle A Fruit (sign) To Know or Identify True Christianity During End Times?


There is no two ways about it, in Nigeria and around the world today, the majority of people will rather prefer to be part of a denomination that the pastor performs mirracles (mirracle as used in this article includes prophesying, speaking in tongues and others) or at least claim to do so.

Just as Jesus stated;

"an evil and adulterous generation seeketh a sign"-Mathw 12:39.

The majority of our Church leaders today, both penticostal and new generational Churches all are seeking to perform signs.


the pharisees and Sadusees demanded for a mireacle
Thus, the Christians in verious Churches today, have become like the Pharisees and Saducees who demmanded a mirracle from Jesus before they could believe him as the son of God- Mathw 12:38.

Jesus knew that mirracle is a poor method to proving his identity and becsuse he had no selfish interest (to get rich), he refused to yield to their demand.

Unlike Jesus, the so-called men of God today exploits and misleads the majority of so-called Christians today by performing signs and wonders, of which their ultimate goal is to attract more members and become rich through them.

By performing or at least claiming to do so, they seek to convince people that they are working for God, called and sent by God.

However, it shouldn't supprise you to know that this people aren't working for God rather they are as Jesus will latter identify them as "workers of iniquity". Not even one among the so-called mirracle performers in this end times are working for God. In this end times, mirracle or signs and wonders is a sign to identify not true Christianity but the imitation Christianity.-Mathw 24:3, 24-26.


'mirracle is a poor method to identifying the true followers of Christ in this end 
times'. 

I know the question that may be ringing in your mind as you read this. 'If mirracle is not a fruit to know who the real followers of Christ are today, what then is the major fruit they produce that can be used to identify them in this end times?'

Before looking at what the bible says about that, think about this first;

Why Are We Deceived?

Why are the majority of people who called themselves Christians today deveived into believing that the mirracles or signs and wonders being performed by the so-called men of God today is from God and that it is his will, despite the strong warnings in the bible about mirracles or signs and wonders proclaimers?

If you are convinced so strongly that God still uses men to do signs and wonders in this end times, like divine healing of physical illness, raising the dead, foretelling the future, divine prophesies, speaking in tongues, divine dreams and explaining dreams etc.

If you do, then this will warrant you to believing in that your man of God. Surely that is the reason you are convinced that even if some men of God doing such mirracles are false, but their is still some that their mirracles is from God. Is that not?

Now ask yourself;

Could I be one of those the bible called " them that perish" and it adds "because they received not the love of the truth" and that "God shall send a strong delusion that they should believe a lie"?-2 Thess. 2:10,11.

Look at the phrase "strong delusion". That is to say that the measure of your strong conviction in todays mirracles, pastors are performing should tell you the measure of the 'strong delusion' God have sent to you, because you love lies than the truth.



Why that conclusion?


Remember that the warning in 2Thesselonians cited above, was giving by Paul when he was revealing the identity of the "man of iniquity" (see part I and II) and those who will believe his signs and wonders.

Are you perhaps one of them? Could it be you have been deceived all this while?

If you don't think so yet you strongly believes that God still use humans to do divine mirracles in this end times, and you still strongly believes in the so-called men of God proclaiming signs and wonders today, then am sory to say; you are deceiving yourself upon being deceived, that is the 'strongest delusion'. -2  Thess. 2:10,11.

Let me echo again the warning from our lord the Christ when warning his followers about this so-called men of God. He said;

"look I have warned you".-Mathw. 24:25.

In part IV of this series, I will answer the question I earlier raised that is in your mind. That is, if mirracle is not a fruit to identify real followers of Christ today, what then is the major fruit?

This and other issues relating to this matter we will examine in part IV.

Church Leaders: Working for God or Workers of Iniquity? Part II

 Reasons Why You Must Be Very Careful of Church Leaders and Mirracle Working Men of God  Today


 Have you ever tried to understand the main reason(s) why any one who calls himself (in this articles masculine gender "he, himself" is used for easy reading but it applies to both genders) a 'man of God' today struggles very hard to make sure he perform mirracles?

The following are their three major aim and objectives.

2. To attract prospective followers who is convinced on his calling.

While it is true that they are achieving this goals well arranged to accomplish their aim. However, it is a lie that because one performs mirracles proves he is called and chosen by God to work for him, and thus a true follower of Christ.

men of Gods round the world


In part I of this article, the bible helped us to understand that the three (3) names "Man of Sin", " the False prophets", and "Workers of iniquity" refers to our Church leaders today.

We used the bible to identified our Church leaders today to be the foretold "man of sin" that will manifest himself during the end times. Therefore, we noted that the name "Man of sin" refers to our so-called Church leaders and miracle working men of God today.

How then do we know that the name "the false prophets refers to the same Man of Sin? That is the collective group of the falsely called 'Church leaders' today? To answer that question, we have to go back to the scriptural comparisons we started in part I.  

 

ii. The identity of "the false Prophets"


The scripture connect the name the man of sin or son of perdition" to the name "the false prophets" and since we have understood that the 'man of sin' is our so-called men of God today, Therefore, the false prophets is also our church leaders today, that is the collective group of the so-called men of God today who are deceiving people with their so-called signs and wonders or miracles..

Compare 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10 and Mathew 24:11,24.

"Many false Prophets will arise and deceive many...false Christ and false Prophets will arise and will perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive"-Mathw24:11,24

 "the man of sin will be revealed...the man of sin with every powerful work and lying signs and wonders and every unrighteous deception"-2Thess 2:8-10



In Mathew's account, Jesus said; " many false prophets will arise". And in 2 Thesselonians Brother Paul said;
 "the man of sin will be revealed".

Do you think Jesus and Paul were talking about different group of people or the same people?

The word "arise" and "revealed" used by Jesus and Paul respectively shows that what Jesus said before Paul became a Christian will surely come true, so Paul was just confirming Jesus statement. Therefore, there is no argument. Jesus and Paul had the same group of people in mind. Therefore, the Man of Sin is the false Prophets-the so-called men of God and miracle workers today.

For what purpose will the false prophets arise?
It is the same purpose with the man of sin. Jesus said; "to deceive" while Paul said "'unrighteous deception".

What is the mode or method of deception?
Jesus said "they will perform signs and wonders". Paul said "with every powerful work... signs and wonders".

With this similarities, it is unthinkable to argue that the "Man of Sin" is not the same people the bible called "the false Prophets".



Bellow, you  will see how the bible help us to identify the same so-called Men of God of our Churches today as Workers of iniquity and why that name is fitting for our Church leaders today.

Remember, we are still considering the First among the ten (10) reasons why you must be very careful of the Church leaders and so-called men of God today.


III. The Identity of "Workers of Iniquity"

We need not go far before identifying this people. From the name alone, "Man of Sin or iniquity' and "Workers of iniquity" you know the bible is speaking about the same sect of people, our so-called Men of God today.

For the sake of more facts, we will now compare 2 Thessalonians 2:7,8 and Mathew 7:23

It says in part;

 

I (Jesus) will say to them get away from me you workers of iniquity".-Mathew 7:23.

 "This iniquity is already at work....the worker of iniquity whom Lord Jesus will do away with the spirit of his mouth".-2 Thess. 2:7,8

 

Jesus used the name workers of iniquity while Paul called them Man of iniquity and confirm that the iniquity is already at work.

Jesus tells us that 'he will "say" (the spirit of his mouth according to Paul) to them'. So Jesus and Paul are saying the same thing to the same people. Jesus will condemn many of the present flood of so-called Church leaders in Christianity today, given command on their ultimate fate, that of everlasting destruction.

 

 Though they think and believe and are convinced today that they are Working for God,we now understand that this men of God today, "many" of them says Jesus are really not working for God. 

 

What do you think;

 

 Is your Pastor or Man of God among the "many" that believe today they are working for God of which you are so convinced he is,  but whom Jesus will later identified as workers of iniquity?

 

 Why You Need to Think Deeply About The Above Question

 

  A Catch To Miracles....and The Three names


Religion is a very sensitive issue and some view their believe as personal, thus they refused to discourse or look into their religious believe and convictions to see if it is compatible with the truth find in the bible. Therefore, it is very easy for you dear reader to begin to justify your man of God or Pastor or even your denomination.


While you could reasonably argue that not all religious leaders of all Christian denominations today performs miracle or even believe that the modern miraculous fever sweeping the scene of our Christian Churches today are from God, (though am still to see that denomination that unanimously believe that God do no longer use humans to perform miracles today accept like Jehovah's Witnesses) 


Also, you could reasonably contend that while there  are many Church leaders and miracle workers today who are among the  false Prophets Jesus spoke about, but that there are still some among them today who are true and their miracles or signs and wonders are from God, maybe you believe your man or men of God are really working for God.

But there is a 'catch to miracles and signs and wonders going on among the so-called men of God today that they won't tell you but which you can learn from the bible. In part III of this series of why we need to be careful of the Church leaders today, we will talk about that.

 But consider this now:

  

Rightly, not all the Church leaders today are performing signs and wonders, however almost all still teaches that God still use humans to perform signs and wonders in this end times which the bible disagrees on as we will see later.   So can it still be said that they are included in the group the bible called Workers of iniquity or Man of Sin? YES!

Do not get it wrong, it is not only for what this people are doing (e. g lying sings and wonders, lovers of money) that makes the bible to call them that names, but also for what they are not doing or not doing right (following the actual steps of Christ)

Also among those not performing miracles, you can still notice other things they do that fits the description of one of the three names the bible used for them namely, Man of Sin, False prophets and Workers of iniquity.  

For example:  

In Part I of this article when comparing the attitudes of the man of sin to that of the Church leaders today, we see how similar it is. No wonder, that the bible identified and applies the names to the so-called men of God today.

I hereby confess that the characteristics scriptural identified regarding the identity of the man of sin, the false prophets and workers of iniquity all fits into the characters of our so-called men of God in our Churches today and that we are seeing the fulfillment of the bible prophecies regarding the end times today.

Is it possible that you have been following Workers of iniquity  in the name of men of God?

Church Leaders: Working for God or Workers of iniquity? Part 1

  • Reasons Why You Must Be Very Careful of Church Leaders and Miracles Workers In This End Time.


Have you ever tried to figure out the main reason(s) why any one who calls himself (in this articles masculine gender "he, himself" is used for easy reading but it applies to both genders) a 'man of God' today struggles very hard to make sure he performs mirracles? I mean the pastors or church leaders.

The following are their three major aim and objectives.

1. To convince the masses that he is a true man of God, anoited, called or chosen by God to do his work.

2. To attract prospective followers who will be convinced on his calling.

3. To become wealthy. Either you take it or not, that is the ultimate reason why many of the men of God globaly today are doing all they can to perform signs and wonders.

While it is true that they are achieving this goals well arranged to accomplish their aim. However, it is a lie that because one performs mirracles proves he is called and chosen by God to work for him, and thus a true follower of Christ.

Before I continue..

Let me tell you first that am a Christian. May be you are wondering if I am. Am a believer and also an ardent bible student.

I think the time is now come to expose and to warn. To inform and to sting. To free from spiritual bondage those whose heart are detesting on the disgusting, unscriptural and Demonic operations through our so-called Christian Church leaders around the globe.

  I don't claim that this is a new revelation, though it might be new to you. But the scriptures have done the exposure long ago. Am only here to echo it and share it in a way that you as a Church member can easily see what is going on in Churches today, and even in your denomination, so it may be that those having ears may  hear what the spirit of the LORD had warned, for our own salvation.

The following biblical explainations are the reasons why you have to be careful of the so-called men of God in this end times, including that your pastor.

 We start right from the last number to the first.

#10. "The man of sin"  "the false prophets" and "workers of iniquity" is our church leaders.



If this is true, of what better reason is there to be very careful of our church leaders and those performing mirracle, signs and wonders in this end time?

This is true!

There is strong irrefutable biblical evidences to prove that the above names applies to the same group of people in our Christian Churches in this end time.

The problem is this:

For centuries now, and till date, Christians including the leaders themselves have explained away the true meaning of the name the man of perdition or the man of sin found in brother Paul's prophesy regarding the end time found in 2 Thesselonians chapter 2.

We have consistently refer this man to be a so-called future monster, one man Antichrist who will come to give a literal 666 mark on people's faces and hands.

This is a gross mistake we have been making and wrong explaination we have  been giving. This mistaking view of who the Antichrist is have lead us to believe that the coming of the 'man of sin' and the 'Antichrist' is still in future and have blinded our minds to the real identity of this man. Thus, we have fail to note that this so-called man, this group of people is operating today.

This view have to be corrected and the  bull taken by  horn, and very fast as we are now deeper into the foretold end time.

Listen. While the man of perdition  can be refereed also as an Antichrist, but the term Antichrist is not limited. There is nothing like the Antichrist as in, one person or
definite.

Also 666 is not the same with the man of perdition. While 666 is political, the man of sin is religious, while either or both of the empires or even an individual can constitute an ati-christ (1 John 2v18, 22)

When compared, the scripture is plain on the identity of the three names above as refering to the same group of people, our Church leaders. Let us see.

i. The identity of the "man of sin".


Compare 2thesselonian 2:3,4 to Mathew 23:2, 6-10.

The scriptures above are all prophecies of what will occur in this end times.
Though many agrees that we are now in end times yet they fail to come to terms with how these prophecies are fulfilling today.

In his prophesy, brother Paul tells us that a man he called "man of sin" will arise in Christianity and deceive many and this will occur during the end times but before the coming of Christ. He warned;

''that man of sin...who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped. So that he as God sitteth in the temple of God showing himself to be God''- 2 Thess. 2:3,4 (kjv)

Who is this man? To help us identify this man, compare Paul's warning to that earlier warned by Jesus Christ.

''the scribes and the pharisees ( Jewish religious leaders) sit in Moses' seat..
and love the uppermost room at feast and chief seats in the synagogues (church) And greetings in the markets (public) and to be called of men ( both men revered or prominent but not a church leader) Rabbi, Rabbi''- Math. 23;2, 6-10 (kjv)

Verses 8 & 9 of Mathew 23 (please read it before you go on) went on to show  how this religious leaders today though ''sitteth in the temple of God'' i.e claiming to be men representing God. The men of God, yet at the same time making themselves God l.

How? By making themselves the object of worship to the church members.

Our church leaders do this by publicly without shame, bearing titles that in a religious settings only applies to the Creator and Jesus.
By calling themselves titles like: Father, Reverend, Most reverend, Dadi, leader, teacher or pastor.

Other titles are Pope, Bishop. Some later ones have even started titling themselves with 'apostle, Evangelist e.t.c this fulfills  prophecy and have lead to Clergy-Laity class. (the clergy exulted and different from the members of the church)

While Jesus said the 'one greatest among you should be your servant', and he also said 'what you all are brothers", but the opposite is the case today- Mathw 23:8, 11.

By going against Jesus clear  warning about the pitfall of giving religious titles,  The men of Gods today, now view and exalt themselves as the spiritual leader
of Christian faith. Some (popes) going as far to claim infallibility (perfection) in decisions and teaching.

As you can note, reading and comparing the above two scriptures have irrefutably identify the 'man of sin.

The same thing we read in Mathew account that the religious leaders of Jesus time were doing that prompted Jesus to warn his disciples not to do is exactly what the 'man of sin' will do.

This proved that after the apostolic era,  Christian leaders deviated and till date never returned. Both history confirms this. No wonder 2Thesselonians 2v3 called it ''the falling away'' or ''apostasy''.


For example;

Mathew account says that the scribes and pharisees  exalt themselves as leaders (seat on Moses seat)
The man of sin is said to exalt himself also.

The pharisees and scribes like to be called by title Rabbi, even other men though prominent and wealthy but not a religious leader have to also call the religious leaders, 'Rabbi'.

Similarly, the man of sin exalt himself even over ''all that is call God'' or revered. That is, other prominent people in society who are also respected, yet this so-called gods have to still pay homage to the religious leaders.

This can be seen in our Churches today. No matter who you are, a politician or wealthy members of the church you must still  revere the Church leaders, you must still kneel for them, call them their self proclaimed and exaltic titles, 'pastor this', 'reverend that' 'and so on and on.

The scribes and pharisees "seats in the synagogue" claiming to serve God's purpose.
The man of sin also 'sit in the temple of house of God" claiming to be men of God serving his purpose.

The Scribes and the pharisees like greatings in public places and always have their special seats in the synagogue.

The man of sin publicly without any regard to God and Christ, claim and uses titles that belongs only to God and Christ religiously.

Aren't our Church leaders putting on special cloths that you can easily recognize who is exalted above others once you enter a church? or can you as a member of the church sit where the pastors seat?

Who will dare argue against the scripture?

As you can see, the charateristics of this so called man of sin fits into the charateristics of our Church leaders today  and we shouldn't be supprise, after all this was the same chereteristics of the religious leaders in Jesus' time.

 Thus, the "man of sin" is our church leaders in this end times.

''Man" is here used in a collective sense.

Are you that blind? Aren't you seeing all this things going on in your Church and in Christendom?

In part II of this series, we will see how the bible have made it plain who the ''false prophets" are.

A farther comparison of another scriptures will make it more clearer to understand that the man of sin is the same group of people Jesus referred to as the "false prophets", that is our Church leaders today.
