“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed …” (2 Thessalonians 2:7).
I have been reading and researching articles sent to me by family and friends. As I put the information together, a prophetic picture became much clearer with all of the events happening today. This prophetic puzzle includes the Beast in Revelation and the mystery of ‘lawlessness’ that is becoming less of a mystery every day in the streets of America and around the world.
Over the past few years I have come to realize that Black Lives Matter (BLM) is nothing more than a renewal of the Black Panther movement, a black supremacist ideology that became well-known in the 1960s. According to what I read in encyclopedia.com, my beliefs were substantiated. BLM is part of the new Black Panther black supremacist movement along with the Nation of Islam (NOI). Both groups have leaders who are Islamic and both include hatred for the Jewish people and Isra’el – anti-semitism. Reading the article were many names that I recognized not just from the past, but also from the present.
I honestly believe that the Beast, the world religious system in Revelation, will be Islam. The word Islam literally means ‘submission’ and that ‘submission’ is to Allah. Islam is derived from the Arabic word for ‘peace’ and thus implies it is a religion of ‘peace and tolerance.’ Unfortunately, the Koran, Islam’s holy book, doesn’t promote peace or tolerance with anyone who does not ‘submit’ to Allah.
How does submission to Allah look? It is done with lying prostrate on the ground at the sound of the call on a mosque. But, it all begins with kneeling. The most famous recent ‘kneeler’ is Colin Kaepurnick. Many believe he was kneeling to protest racism, but few realize he had also converted to Islam because his girlfriend, Nessa Diab, is an Egyptian Muslim and supported Black Lives Matter. Now we have chaos going on in streets in the United States and people of all races kneeling before their ‘captors’ in the guise of being first, against racism, and second against police brutality (also another tenet of NOI and the new Black Panthers.
“Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy [falling away] comes first, and the man of lawlessness [anti-christ] is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).
Please note that according to Scripture a ‘falling away’ must come first. Apostasy is ‘the abandonment of a religious (and even political) belief.’ Thus, the ‘falling away’ from an honest Biblical faith and a free republic based on life and liberty for all must occur before the anti-christ, the ‘man of lawlessness’ is publicly revealed. He is the ‘son of destruction’ (and we are seeing a lot of destruction) whose father is haSatan who masquerades as an angel of light (enlightenment?) and comes only to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10). Hs goal will be to exalt himself and become an object of worship. The process he uses will be a false peace and submission to his will.
“All the king’s servants who were at the king’s gate bowed down and paid homage to Haman; for so the king had commanded concerning him. But Mordecai neither bowed down nor paid homage” (Esther 3:2).
Another article I read was written by some rabbis in the Breaking Israel News. These rabbis discuss bowing to men over God. There are instances in Scripture where men bowed to each other – Abraham to his guests and Moshe to his father-in-law – but it was not a sign of submission but mutual respect. The bowing that was required by Haman was in submission to his authority, an authority that included hatred for the Jewish people. Mordecai understood the difference as did Esther who only bowed before the King’s scepter, but never bowed before a man who required her ‘homage’ or ‘feudal allegiance.’
This is the place where BLM has the country and parts of the world today. Though they want to make it appear as though people are joining them in their fight against racism and police brutality, there is an underlying SPIRITUAL purpose – to make everyone no matter what race SUBMIT to THEIR authority. And, what authority is that? Ultimately, it is to Islam (the Beast), to Allah (the false prophet), and Islamic Law or Sharia (what will bring false peace). It is quite fascinating how many young people who are anti-religion and have been raised without an understanding of the Creator of the Universe are so easily submitting to a religion of ‘peace’ while being ‘silenced’ with their mask-wearing faces.
Of course there are those who will never submit to Islam and bow before any ‘man of lawlessness.’ For now, there is some liberty in doing so, but the day will come when standing as Mordecai did will no longer be tolerated. It may be that those who refuse will either be taken captive or murdered.
Another friend posted some information on the idea being circulated about replacing police forces with a ‘Committee of Public Safety.’ First, it sounds like average people will regulate safety which could become vigilante and very dangerous.
Example, another interesting piece of news has to do with Elmer Fudd. There is a remake of this cartoon and it no longer has Elmer with a gun. He will either wield a machete or an axe (scythe) neither of which have any regulations for use. In other words, guns which have so many regulations for buying and selling will be replaced with murderous weapons that anyone can get and use at a local hardware store. Vigilantism.
There was another era, however, when a ‘Committee of Public Safety’ was introduced into society. It was in France – a country now with a very large Muslim population.
According to history.com: “On July 27, 1793, Robespierre was elected to the Committee of Public Safety, which was formed in April to protect France against its enemies, foreign and domestic, and to oversee the government. Under his leadership, the committee came to exercise virtual dictatorial control over the French government.” Please note it was a DICTATORSHIP. “Robespierre encouraged the execution, mostly by guillotine, of more than 17,000 enemies of the Revolution. The day after his arrest, Robespierre and 21 of his followers were guillotined before a cheering mob in the Place de la Revolution in Paris.“
The guillotine was used to destroy enemies of the Revolution. In former president Barak Obama’s Town Hall talk last week he encouraged protests as an example of the American Revolution without discouraging the violence. He was ultimately inciting a revolution that includes terrorism. Please understand that Barak Obama is a Muslim whether or not he is public about his faith. Louis Farrakhan was and still may be Obama’s spiritual mentor and he is the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI). Even if Obama rejects this man as his spiritual leader, he was raised Muslim. I have known several Muslims who say they know without a doubt that Obama is a Muslim because that was how he was raised.
“And with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).
Each piece of the prophetic puzzle begins to come together with BLM and its foundation along with submission by kneeling to Allah as a false prophet. With police departments being defunded and abolished (and what that really means) and the idea of creating Committees of Public safety, this world may be looking at global beheadings! Is that so far-fetched? Could Islam be the conduit for beheadings?
“Then I saw thrones, and those seated on them received authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for testifying about Yeshua and proclaiming the Word of God …” (Revelation 20:4).
All prophecy revolves are Isra’el. Until 1948 there was no Isra’el. Until 1967 Isra’el had no control over Jerusalem. In 2018 the United States recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Isra’el. So though there have been upheavals and revolutions and wars raging among countries and civil wars among peoples as prophesied by Yeshua in Matthew 24, there was not a nation of Isra’el until our generation. What is happening on a global scale has also not ever happened before even in the World Wars, again occurring without a nation of Isra’el.
In the past few years, a growing hatred has developed against the Jewish people. I had a Jewish friend comment the other day that he doesn’t know how suddenly anti-semitism became part of this massive racist revolt against the police. Not only has there been a resurgence of anti-semitism with neo-Nazis, but within the tenets of BLM and NOI and the new Black Panthers, Jews are also the targets of their intolerance and hatred. Why?Because everything that is happening has to do with the return of Messiah Yeshua and his return to Jerusalem. Without an Isra’el, without a Jerusalem, and without the Jews crying out for his return, ‘the man of lawlessness’ has nothing to worry about. But as the prophetic picture is put in place, his fury, his anger rises and he takes control of all those who also hate and despise the nation of Isra’el. In turn, those ideologies are now out in the open so to speak and are causing the masses to sumbit.
As Yeshua’s return draws closer, several things will happen and I don’t claim to know what order. The ‘man of lawlessness’ will become a public figure. He will promise peace to a chaotic world and the world will ‘bend the knee’ quickly.
There will be those who stand against this ‘man of lawlessness’ and will most likely ‘lose their heads’ while those who have fallen into the ‘great apostasy’ celebrate their deaths as a victory for removing the God of Isra’el, His people, and His Torah from the earth. They will willingly take the ‘mark of the Beast’ because they have already submitted to its leader.
According to Hosea 11:10, the people of Adonai, the Jewish people along with those who love Isra’el will come to the Land of Isra’el from the west trembling when they hear the ‘roar of the Lion of Judah.’ Yeshua will have had enough and he will call his people home in order to judge ‘the man’ and his followers.
There is so much more about endtimes in the book of Revelation and about how this all plays out with the ‘man of lawlessness’ and his global control. Of course, there will always be scoffers and mockers and deniers to the Truth because they have succumbed to the lies.
BUT, there is always a BUT. Yeshua is coming in the clouds and every eye will see him and every knee will bow to His Name and with the breath of His mouth He will slay the ‘man of lawlessness’ and destroy his global kingdom by the glory of His return.
Until then, keep your discerning eyes open and do not fall into the Great Deception. Keep following current events as they unfold and fill in the missing puzzle pieces.
Bo Mashiach. Come Messiah.
