The Kingdom Of Heaven And The Kingdom Of God Compared, Contrasted And Rightly Divided

The gospel of the kingdom as preached by Jesus Christ and the Apostles and the gospel of the grace of God as revealed by Jesus Christ to the Apostle Paul are not the same. In fact, they’re not even close to being identical.

The gospel of the grace of God’s free gift of salvation by redemption in Christ death, burial, and resurrection to save sinners from Hell. It is the FINISHED blood atonement that imputes GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS to sinners.

The gospel of the kingdom as preached by Jesus Christ and the Apostles and the gospel of the grace of God as revealed by Jesus Christ to the Apostle Paul are not the same. In fact, they’re not even close to being identical. They are two completely different gospels preached to two completely different groups of people with two completely different messages.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4 KJV

The scripture is very plain and direct concerning this. This foundational doctrinal truth is not difficult to comprehend or understand, you’ve simply have to believe the Bible. If you are a new born babe in Christ and this is your first time hearing this, you’d do well to follow the example of the Bereans:

“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10-11 (KJV)

People who reject this doctrinal truth of the differences between the two gospels do so because they are either too lazy to run the references or heretical blasphemers. Most of the ones that I have dealt with personally have been lazy. They would rather submit themselves to their emotions combined with how they were raised to believe what their religion teaches before they submit themselves to simply believing God’s words.

“Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.” Proverbs 13:13 (KJV)

Now let’s go into detail breaking down both gospels beginning with the gospel of the kingdom:

“And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.” Matthew 4:23 (KJV)

In order to gain full clarity on the gospel of the kingdom, you must first heed God’s promises to the Jewish Nation of Israel in the Abrahamic, Mosaic, and Davidic Covenant.

ABRAHAMIC COVENANT:

The promise of LITERAL land – (Genesis 12:1). God called Abraham from Ur of the Chaldees to a land that He promised to give him. This promise is once again reiterated in Genesis 13:14–18. The land aspect of the Abrahamic Covenant is expanded in Deuteronomy 30:1–10, which is also the Palestinian Covenant. What is especially critical to note is that the land grant God promised to Abraham and to his seed was also promised to be an EVERLASTING COVENANT:

“And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” Genesis 17:7-8 (KJV)

The promise of kingly descendants – (Genesis 12:2). God promised Abraham that He would make a great nation out of him. Abraham, who was old and childless (Genesis 12:4), was promised many descendants. This promise is amplified in Genesis 17:6 where God promised that nations and kings would descend from Abraham. This promise (which is expanded in the Davidic Covenant of 2 Samuel 7:12–16) would eventuate in the Davidic throne with Messiah’s kingdom rule over the Jewish Nation of Israel.

MOSAIC COVENANT:

In Deuteronomy 28, God gives Moses along with the Jewish Nation of Israel the commandments, statues, and judgements for staying alive, wealthy, safe, and healthy in the land. God also gives them the horror of what will happen when they disobey God’s commandments, statues, and judgements in the land. BUT what is critical and often overlooked in the Mosaic Covenant is what God introduces to the Jewish Nation of Israel through Moses in Exodus chapter 4:

“And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee. And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand: That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee. And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow. And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.  And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first SIGN, that they will believe the voice of the latter SIGN. And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two SIGNS, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.” Exodus 4:1-9 (KJV)

LITERAL, VISIBLE, EARTHLY, SIGNS TO UNBELIEVING JEWS TO LEAD THEM TO THE PROMISE LAND AND OR REVELATION FROM GOD:

1 Corinthians 1:22 KJV For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

From Exodus chapter 4 through the rest of the entire Bible, God gives the Jewish nation of Israel LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY, SIGNS, to lead or guide them to their promised LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY, LAND, to fulfil the prophecy of the LITERAL, PHYSICAL, PROMISED, JEWISH MESSIAH, reigning from a LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY THRONE, in LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY JERUSALEM from where He will establish his LITERAL, PHYSICAL, EARTHLY KINGDOM.

Are you beginning to understand now why the gospel of the kingdom is titled the gospel of THE KINGDOM??

DAVIDIC COVENANT:

“And it came to pass, when the king sat in his house, and the LORD had given him rest round about from all his enemies; That the king said unto Nathan the prophet, See now, I dwell in an house of cedar, but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains. And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in thine heart; for the LORD is with thee. And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD came unto Nathan, saying, Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the LORD, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in? Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle. In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar? Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth. Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime, And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house. And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.  I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.” 2 Samuel 7:1-17 (KJV)

God promised David that the promised Jewish Messiah would come through his seed and that his throne would be established forever. This is why Christ is often referred to as the son of David.

The Abrahamic, Mosaic, and Davidic, Jewish Covenants God established with his people encapsulate the gospel of the kingdom:

“These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:5-8 (KJV)

When Jesus preaches the gospel of the kingdom during his earthly ministry, he is the son of David (Davidic Covenant) of the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Abrahamic Covenant) with the literal, physical, earthly Jewish signs that accompany his Messiahship (Mosaic Covenant).

NOTICE: So far, no where in the gospel of the kingdom is belief in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection for sinners mentioned or preached. NOWHERE in the gospel of the kingdom is the mystery of Jew and gentile in one body mentioned or preached. NOWHERE in the gospel of the kingdom is ‘walk by faith, not by sight’ mentioned or preached. NOWHERE in the gospel of the kingdom is salvation by grace through faith mentioned or preached. The gospel of the kingdom is a Jewish gospel preached to Jews that accompany literal signs, miracles, and wonders to lead the Jewish nation of Israel to the promise land or to give give revelation from God to the JEWS.

GOSPEL OF THE GRACE OF GOD:

“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:24 (KJV)

The gospel of the grace of God was revealed to the Apostle Paul neither from men or Old Testament prophets. The gospel of the grace of God was revealed to the Apostle Paul by revelation from the ascended Lord Jesus Christ:

“But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.” Galatians 1:11-12 (KJV)

What exactly is the gospel of the grace of God? Does it have to do with Christians spreading a Jewish earthly kingdom? No. Does the gospel of the grace of God have anything to do with Christians doing signs, miracles, and wonders for unbelieving Jews to lead them to the promise land? No. Does the gospel of the grace of God have to do with Christians walking by SIGHT and not by FAITH? NO. Does the gospel of the grace of God have anything to do with Christians keeping God’s commandments, statues, and judgments to receive eternal life? No. Does the gospel of the grace of God have anything to do with water baptismal regeneration? No. Well then what exactly is the gospel of the grace of God that the Apostle Paul preached?

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV)

“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” 1 Timothy 1:15 (KJV)

“Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” Romans 4:4-8 (KJV)

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV)

“Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.” Romans 5:14-15 (KJV).

The gospel of the grace of God’s free gift of salvation by redemption in Christ death, burial, and resurrection to save sinners from Hell. It is the FINISHED blood atonement that imputes GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS to sinners.

“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Romans 3:24-26 (KJV)

BEFORE the Apostle Paul straightened out Peter’s doctrine in Acts 15, the Apostle Peter NEVER preached that Christ died for ANYBODY. From Acts chapter 1-14 the only thing that Peter preaches to the Jews is water-based baptismal repentance for KILLING THEIR MESSIAH:

“Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:” Acts 2:22-23 (KJV)

“And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.” Acts 3:12-13 (KJV)

“But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.” Acts 3:14-15 (KJV)

“Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.” Acts 4:8-10 (KJV)

“And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us. Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.” Acts 5:27-30 (KJV)

New Children’s Book ‘The Baptism Of Jesus’ Painting The Spotless Lord As A Sinner Who Needs Baptism ‘To Wash My Sins Away’ Is Pure Heresy

Published

on

childrens-book-baptism-of-jesus-paints-him-as-a-sinner-is-heresy
SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Jesus got baptized by John the Baptist to fulfill God’s righteousness, not to wash away any sin because He was sinless

The children’s book ‘The Baptism of Jesus’ teaches that “John the Baptist lived a simple life. He went around sharing his important message and persuading people to let him wash their sins away. He told people to live better lives and prepare for someone who could baptize not with water but with God’s love. This someone was Jesus and he did come and he asked John to baptize him.” The photo graphic has Jesus saying “I have come to the river to wash away my sins”. Umm. No. Full stop. Jesus was and is sinless, on every level, teaching that He had sin is a Laodicean heresy that we are nipping in the bud right now. But as long as we are on the subject, let’s take a look and see why Jesus was baptized.

“Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.” Matthew 3:13-15 (KJB)

First of all, Jesus is submitting Himself to the baptism of John because He is fulfilling a type as He presents Himself to Israel as the ‘suffering servant’ of Isaiah 53. Second, John the Baptist is shocked, and doesn’t want to to it because he knows Jesus is the sinless and spotless lamb of God. But Jesus gently rebukes him, and says it needs to be done to ‘fulfill all righteousness’. Jesus is showing the people that He is the Lamb, without spot or blemish. But Jesus is only doing this ceremonially because He has no sin to either wash away or repent of. So we can safely conclude that the writer of this book did this out of ignorance of scripture, or did it intentionally to try and make the Lord look bad. All this is ‘par for the course’ here in the lukewarm Laodicean end of the Church Age.

But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.” Hebrews 10:12-14 (KJB)

Throughout the Old Testament, we see the types set up by God to show you the coming final sacrifice that would take place. That is why the lambs sacrificed were without spot, without blemish, they were a perfect type of the only ever perfect Person, the only ever born sinless human being, that was qualified to “take away the sin of the world”. Now do you see why Jesus was baptized? He’s showing the Jews the Lamb has arrived, and on their behalf, and ours, He submits to what God has established, fulfilling all righteousness in the process.

“And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.” Acts 8:36-38 (KJB)

Lastly, in the Church Age, baptism is no longer connected to your salvation, it is part of your sanctification, your testimony to a lost world that you have become born again. The first man saved in the Church Age, the Ethiopian eunuch, asks Phillip what is stopping him from getting baptized. Phillip tells him he has to believe first, get saved first, and then you can be baptized. If you’re trusting in your baptism to ‘wash away your sins’, I have bad news as they are still intact and on you. But if you have trusted the sinless Saviour Jesus of Nazareth who made a payment for you in God’s blood on the cross, then you are every whit clean and whole. Jesus saves. Not Mary, not the saints, not baptism, not the sacraments, not the eucharist, and not anything other than the sinless and spotless Lamb of God. Are you saved? Find out before you go, you’ll be glad you did.

There Are 7 Raptures In Your King James Bible, And The Pretribulation Rapture Of The Church Before The Start Of Jacob’s Trouble Is Only One Of Them

Published

on

pretribulation-rapture-of-the-church-7-raptures-in-your-king-james-bible-nteb-ministries-doctrine-matters
SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

There Are 7 In Your King James Bible starting In Genesis and going all the way clear through to Revelation, we’re looking for the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church

I was just on X a moment ago, and saw that the word ‘rapture’ was trending with lots of people putting their ‘2 cents’ in. Unfortunately, due to the dearth of bible doctrine ‘rightly divided’ being taught today, most Christians are vastly underinformed as to the meaning of that phrase. When people ask me about the Rapture, my usual response is ‘which one’? Your King James Bible shows a minimum of 7 raptures that I can see, with 7 being a perfectly appropriate number for that topic.

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (KJB)

A quick peek into Webster’s 1828 dictionary shows us that the word ‘rapture’ means ‘a seizing by violence’ and a ‘transport; ecstasy; violence of a pleasing passion; extreme joy or pleasure.’ In other words, when the Lord raptures someone up, He is not asking permission first but it’s going to be great. Better than you could ever imagine. The greatest example of this is the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church at the end of the Church Age, but as you’ll soon see, it is far from the only rapture in the Bible.

With that, I present for your scholarly consideration the 7 Raptures In Your King James Bible:

1.       Enoch – This rapture is a wonderful type of the Church being removed before the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble and the great Tribulation. You will notice it takes place immediately prior to the original Days of Noah. Slam dunk.

“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24 (KJB)

2.       Elijah – Another one of the one-man raptures that shows the ‘catching up’ without the Lord asking first, a hallmark of the rapture process. Conclusion? Be ready!

“And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.” 2 Kings 2:11 (KJB)

3.       Jesus – Even the Lord Himself was happy to demonstrate the rapture process by doing it Himself. In this case, He was caught up into the clouds, which is exactly how Paul says you and I will be caught up when it’s time for the Church to go.

“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.” Acts 1:9 (KJB)

4.       The Church – Here it is, ‘that blessed hope’ with all the trimmings. Come get us, Lord Jesus! One of the main differences between the Rapture Paul talks about and the one Jesus describes in Matthew 24, is that Jesus comes for the Church personally, He doesn’t send angels. Also, it is His Voice that acts ‘as a trumpet’, but no trumpet is present. Matthew 24 shows angels doing the rapturing whilst blowing actual trumpets. Things that are different are not the same. Doctrine matters!

“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” Revelation 4:1,2 (KJB)

5.       144,000 – The 144,000 we see sealed on Earth in Revelation 7 are now up in Heaven with Jesus in chapter 14. How did they get there? You know.

“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.” Revelation 14:1 (KJB)

6.       The Two Witnesses Moses and Elijah go up for a ‘second time’ each.

“And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.” Revelation 11:11,12 (KJB)

7.       Tribulation Saints – The Jewish remnant being caught up from Selah Petra.

“And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matthew 24:31 (KJB)

The one that concerns you if you’re saved is the fourth one, the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, the body and bride of Jesus Christ. This Bible doctrine, taught by both Paul and John, as well as shown in type by King Solomon in the Song Of Solomon, is perhaps the most highly-debated and contested doctrine in the Church today. Amazingly, a majority of low information church goers are in a row against it. When you stop preaching Bible doctrine, as Paul warned would happen in 2 Timothy 4, and this is what you get. Detractors will say that this did not exist until John Darby and CI Scofield taught it in the 1800’s, but that is just Laodicean nonsense. The doctrine of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church is clearly present in your King James Bible. You would have to work pretty hard to miss it, and many absolutely do. Don’t be one of them, learn how to rightly divide your Bible.

The Amazing Way That The Letter ‘X’ Is Used In Your King James Bible As It Relates To The Antichrist And His Soon-Coming, Short-Lived 7-Year Kingdom

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Let’s do a quick King James Bible study on the many appearances and inferences of the letter ‘x’ in relation to the Antichrist and his coming kingdom

On our Podcast this afternoon, we had a wonderful time going through our King James Bibles to discover some peculiar anomalies with the letter ‘x’ and verses related to the coming Antichrist and his short-lived, 7-year kingdom. It was so well received that I thought a quick follow-up on the topic was in order. Enjoy!

“And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.” Luke 4:5-7 (KJB)

The main theme of your Bible is the coming King, Jesus Christ, and the kingdom that will soon be given to Him at the Second Advent. Jesus is the ‘volume of the Book’ from Genesis 1 to the end of Revelation 22. But before that can take place, the Devil is going to get a throne for 7 short years, and will try his best to hold onto it. When we look closely at the following passages, some pretty weird things present themselves to us regarding words that either end or begin with the letter ‘x’. Please note the following:

  • Rex – King, this is Antichrist the counterfeit king, a Xerox copy. “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.Revelation 6:2 (KJB). The Latin word for king is ‘rex’, and that’s exactly what the Antichrist is, a king, but with a catch. He’s not the actual Messiah, he’s a counterfeit, kind of like when you make a copy of something with a copying machine like, say, the industry-standard and iconic Xerox.
  • Hex – a curse or magic spell. “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:” Revelation 13:16 (KJB). Now this counterfeit king, let’s call him Mr. Xerox, brings something when he arrives, and we call that a ‘hex’. It is something that curses the one who receives it, please see Revelation 14:9-11 (KJB). The Bible calls this ‘hex’ the Mark of the Beast.
  • Pox – pus-filled, a pustule, blister, ulcer or vesicle. “And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.” Revelation 16:2 (KJB). So King Xerox gives out his hex and what does that produce? It produces a pox in the bodies of the people who received. Is it just me or is there a preponderance of the letter ‘x’? There is, and it gets better (worse?).
  • χάραγμα cháragma – the Mark. “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17 (KJB). I rarely go to the Greek, but today I did and what did I see? The Greek word for ‘mark’, as in the Mark of the Beast, and it’s χάραγμα, or cháragma in English. Do you notice how the Greek word begins with the letter ‘x’? Odd.
  • χξϛ chx stigma – 666. “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:18 (KJB). Here we have the words 600, 60 and 6 written out in Greek as χξϛ, or chx stigma in English. Did you notice what the first letter of that was? Yep, it’s an ‘x’. Amazing.

In math and science, ‘X’ stands for an unknown quantity, perhaps you recall ‘solving for x’ in your high school algebra classes. I cannot tell you the  name of the coming Antichrist, no one can, he is truly Mr. X, but maybe his greatest strength is also his greatest weakness. From an end times perspective, seeing a large amounts of x’s should be setting off your prophetical ‘red flags’, and in 2023 we have buckets of them. Elon Musk just rebranded Twitter as X, and his opening goal is to take over a minimum of 50% of the global financial system. That’s a lot of ‘buying and selling’, don’t you think? Why don’t you mark that down for later? In the meantime, go listen to today’s Podcast on this very subject.

Please continue to pray for us, and for wisdom for me especially, as we continue taking steps to print the NTEB branded King James Bible for our free Bible and Bibles Behind Bars program. It is exciting and intimidating at the same time. If the Lord has prospered your financially, we ask you to donate to help us continue to send out free Bibles at this level, and even higher than we are at the moment. It takes a lot of prayer, and a lot of resources to do all this. Praise the Lord we are doing it, all of us together, labouring in the Lord’s harvest field. TO THE FIGHT!!!

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. We have a Gospel Billboard program. We are now broadcasting Bible studies, Podcasts and a Sunday Service 5 times a week, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. The Lord has given us an open door with a tremendous ‘course’ for us to fulfill that will create an excellent experience at the Judgement Seat of Christ. Please pray for our efforts, and if the Lord leads you to donate, be as generous as possible. The war is REAL, the battle HOT and the time is SHORTTO THE FIGHT!!!
