I began the process of writing this book with a great deal of trepidation and fear. Not fear of God, but fear of myself. In my 45+ years as a Christian, I’ve gotten a lot of things wrong. But, it’s one thing to struggle with error. It’s something far, far worse to cause other people to be in error.
If I communicate something wrong and cause harm to your spiritual life, I cannot imagine too many things worse than that. It would be better for me to go off the rails and commit abominable sin, than to lead you into spiritual error. It would be better for me to commit adultery and live a debauched life, than to damage your spiritual life.
It really is that serious.
But, that’s just one of the reasons why I have been so careful in how I wrote this book. The other reason is that I wanted to make sure that I had not deceived myself. I needed to double check what I believe to be true, and make certain that I have been misled because events are moving closer and closer to the fulfillment of far too many prophecies.
Furthermore, this has been a valuable exercise. I’ve been able to correct some mistaken assumptions, and I’ve seen things in ways that I had not seen before. I’ve also gained a greater distrust for translators. If you are reading this conclusion before reading the rest of the book, you are missing out on a lot of outrage.
I am so mad at how translators have corrupted the Bible, I could scream. In fact, I did. And, my poor wife had to sit through some of my ranting and raving. (The poor woman is a saint, for having to sit through all that.)
The good thing is that the conclusion is pretty clear:
The salvation of Israel and the coming of Gog and Magog must come quite a while before the rise of the Antichrist.
Maybe not decades, but at least years.
This is an inescapable conclusion, once you have assembled the facts in their proper order. There just isn’t any other way to look at this, if you are actually looking at all of what the Bible says on this subject.
Remember that we are not allowed to cherry pick from the Bible. We are not allowed to just choose those truths that we like. If we are to be true sons and daughters of God, we must accept all that the Bible says. All of it.
And, the first thing that we discover, as we look at the passages about Gog and Magog, is that the coming of that vast army cannot coincide with the rise of the Antichrist. In Ezekiel and Zechariah, Gog and Magog is defeated. Massively. And, that defeat proves something else:
Gog cannot be the Antichrist.
Because Gog is buried east of the Sea of Galilee.
The Antichrist is thrown alive in the Lake of Fire.
We also have another ‘problem’ with Gog and Magog. That alliance comes from a subset of the nations of the world. They aren’t ALL of the nations, which is how Armageddon is described. In fact, when Gog and Magog comes, a lot of countries will be outraged that this army is invading the Middle East.
Gog and Magog is not all nations.
Therefore, Gog and Magog cannot be Armageddon.
Then, there’s the issue of faith. And, this has been a huge reason for why I have objected to many of the theories about how the Children of Jacob will return to God. The only way to be saved is to have faith in Jesus Christ. There is no other way to eternal life. None.
Yet, many theories about Israel’s Return, remove this need for faith. Most of the theories imply that the Jews in Israel will see Jesus on the Mount of Olives and will then accept Him as their Lord and Savior. And, that is NOT what the Bible describes.
I know that there are passages that appear to describe them ‘seeing’ Jesus and then attaining salvation, but those passages do not describe ‘sight’ as in seeing through the eyes. It’s the vision of the heart that those verses and chapters refer to. But, I understand the confusion that many people have over this. And, I believe that God has made this issue deliberately difficult, and it’s not the only thing that God has obscured.
Think of this as a test.
If you pass, you get a chance to survive and continue to serve God.
If you fail, you will probably die in the worst way possible.
(And, I wish that I was using hyperbole here)
Then, to add certainty to our conclusion, we have the 144 thousand that are sealed by God in Revelation 7. Those are Israeli Christians. And, they can ONLY be Israeli Christians. Children of Jacob, Israeli Christians. And, they MUST be a part of a much, much larger group of Israeli Christians.
You cannot, CANNOT have the sealing of the 144 thousand before Armageddon, if that’s when the Children of Jacob return to God. You just cannot make it fit, and you shouldn’t try. After all, God is NOT going to seal these 144 thousand before they have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. And, there’s no reason to make that assumption, anyway.
The bottom line is that all of this… ALL OF IT …means one thing, and one thing only :
Gog and Magog must come long before – years before – the rise of the Antichrist.
And, the reason why this should be of vital interest to you, is the massive cataclysm that will destroy much of civilization as we know it:
Please read that book. I do not want you to be numbered among the billion – or more – who will die during that terrible time. Our civilization, as it works right now, cannot survive a superflare like that. It just can’t.
There will be parts of the world that WILL survive. Civilization WILL return. And, I personally believe that the Antichrist will gain his power by helping bring the world back to some kind of prosperity. But, that’s a story for another day.
Just be ready for what is coming, and do your best to help other people be ready.
NOTE: If you cheated and read this before reading the rest of the book, go back to the beginning and read everything that you missed. You owe it to yourself to see all the evidence laid out properly – assuming that I’ve done that.
