THE BIBLICAL BLOOD MOON AND THE DAY OF THE LORD by Jeff Wingo

 

This past weekend we saw the final “blood moon” of a tetrad (a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses), which happened to fall on several of the Jewish Feasts, in particular Passover, and Tabernacles.

Since the Jewish calendar is based on lunar cycles, the fact that a total lunar eclipse fell on a Jewish Feast day is not an uncommon event. According to Earthsky.org, in 21 centuries a tetrad fell on Passover and Tabernacles 8 times. Here is the chart from the Earthsky website:

1. 162-163 C.E. (Common Era)
2. 795-796 C.E.
3. 842-843 C.E.
4. 860-861 C.E.
5. 1493-1494 C.E.
6. 1949-1950 C.E.
7. 1967-1968 C.E.
8. 2014-2015 C.E.

So, it is not as uncommon as John Hagee and Mark Biltz make it out to be. To compound the issue, as far as this series of tetrads have to do with Israel, 3 of the 4 lunar eclipses were not even visible from Israel. The last lunar eclipse, which occurred Sunday, September 28, 2015 was only partially visible in Israel, “which may be observable for a short while before sunrise.”

The problem I have with all of this is that some Christians were predicting that the rapture was going to take place on Sunday, which obviously did not occur.

But, the question remains, could this series of tetrads, falling on Jewish feast days, actually point to end-time events? Its possible, and I would not discount that. The Bible does mention signs in the heavens as a precursor to the Day of the Lord. However, I do believe we should be careful tying these events to the return of Christ until it is abundantly clear that something strange and unusual is going on. To do so can cause irreparable harm to the cause of Christ, and possibly damage the faith of some.

Just using common sense and logic we can see that before the rapture, or the our gathering together with Christ, several things must occur first.

  1. The great apostasy must take place.
  2. The Man of Sin (the Antichrist), must be revealed.
  3. The restraining influence of the Holy Spirit must be released so that the Mystery of Iniquity can be revealed (the revelation of Antichrist, and total lawlessness on the planet).
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (2 Thess. 2:1-3).

As Paul writes here, don’t be shaken by false words. I fear that many people may be turned away from Christ, or their faith may be shaken, because of  fear mongering, and the false hope of a rapture of the church before the time.

As Paul states, the gathering of Christians, which is the rapture, and the Day of Christ (or, Day of the Lord), will NOT take place until the falling away occurs, and the Antichrist is revealed to the world. It’s that simple.

I hold to a post-tribulation understanding of the rapture, but even if you believe in a pre-tribulational rapture, this verse still stands true: the rapture will NOT happen until after the apostasy occurs and the Man of Sin is revealed.

The Bible is clear that strange unusual signs will be seen in the heavens before the return of Christ, but these may be supernatural signs designed by God. I am of the opinion that these signs may be so clearly beyond the normal course of nature that it will be abundantly clear that something out of the ordinary is happening.

And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven (Luke 21:11).

As you can see, Jesus ties events we have now, earthquakes, famines, and disease, with supernatural signs in the sky. The Greek word for fearful sights is phobētron which refers to something in the heavens that causes terror, and strikes fear in those who see it.

Furthermore, the great signs referred to here is “a sign, prodigy, portent, i.e. an unusual occurrence, transcending the common course of nature.” It also refers to “signs portending remarkable events soon to happen.”

I don’t know about you, but the lunar eclipse the other night, which occurred on the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles, wasn’t a fearful, frightening sign in the heavens. Indeed, it was a sight to behold, a bit of beauty in the darkness of night that pointed to the glory of Almighty God, who set the whole course of nature in motion.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork (Psalm 19:1).

Just something to think about.

THE GOOD SHEPHERD VS THE IDOL SHEPHERD by Jeff Wingo

“Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened” (Zechariah 11:17).

The Good Shepherd by James Tissot, Brooklyn Museum, 1894.

The Good Shepherd by James Tissot, Brooklyn Museum, 1894.

One of the titles of Jesus is the Good Shepherd (John 10:11). As the Good Shepherd He saves and protects His flock from the Idol Shepherd, who is clearly a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Many theologians over the centuries have attributed the above verse from Zechariah to the final end-time Antichrist, the great enemy of both God and man.

It speaks of the coming judgment on the Antichrist Beast. Jesus said, “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive” (John 5: 43).

The Idol Shepherd will come in his own name, and his name is Destroyer (Rev.9:11). This is in contrast to Jesus, whose name means “Jehovah is salvation.” The Idol Shepherd “comes to kill, steal, and destroy” (John 10:10); this is in contrast to Jesus who comes to  “save His people from their sins” (Matt.1:21). Jesus gave his life for the sheep, and the Idol Shepherd will take life from the earth.

Jesus is the True Vine (John 15:1), and the Idol Shepherd is the Vine of the Earth (Rev.14:19). Those who worship the Good Shepherd do so in spirit and in truth, but those who worship the Idol Shepherd worship the Lie, in the spirit of Strong Delusion. In fact, the Idol Shepherd will demand the worship of the world. Instead of the Son of Man, the world will embrace the Man of Sin. Instead of the Son of God, the world will accept the Son of Perdition.

The world has turned its back on the Light of the World, and instead embraced darkness. John said, “light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19).

So, in keeping with the spirit of the world, which is the spirit of antichrist, the world system has chosen the Idol Shepherd over the Good Shepherd. Instead of the gospel of Christ, the world has embraced the gospel of Antichrist. Instead of Christ, the world will clamor for Antichrist. Instead of the True Prophet, the world will demand the False Prophet. Instead of the True Gospel (1 Cor.15:1-4), the world will embrace Another Gospel, the gospel of the Serpent (Genesis 3:4-5; ye shall be as gods).

“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:6-8).

The Good Shepherd is from Heaven, the Idol Shepherd is the Beast from the abyss. He will be received by the world with open arms, will institute another gospel and system of worship (the image and mark of the Beast), and bring to humanity another spirit: the full manifestation of the spirit of antichrist.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thess. 2:3-4).

 

While I do believe it is entirely possible the Antichrist will walk into a rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem, could it also be that he will walk into the individual hearts of billions of people by the power of the spirit of antichrist once the restraint of the Holy Spirit is removed? The human heart is also called the Temple of God in the New Testament.

  • Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are (1 Cor.3:16-17).
  • What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own (1 Cor. 6: 19)?

The Idol Shepherd is called “Idol” for a reason: He will become the idol in the sanctuary of the human heart. Billions will receive him by the power of the spirit of antichrist in much the same way that people today receive the real Jesus Christ through the new birth, and the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit!

Don’t wait for the Strong Delusion to overtake you: open your heart today to the real Jesus Christ, the true Good Shepherd!

SUPERNATURAL DECEPTION IS COMING by Jeff Wingo

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves (Matthew 7:15).

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves (Matthew 7:15).

There is one aspect about the Great Tribulation that we should seriously take into account; and that is, it will be a period of time when the full expression of the mystery of iniquity is no longer a hidden mystery, but out in the open. This will be a remarkable deception, and it is something that billions of people will quickly embrace.

The supernatural power of the mystery of iniquity will be attributed to God, when in fact, it will be a manifestation of dark satanic power.  Paul said, “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work…” (2 Thess 2:7). In other words, hidden, or secret lawlessness, which had already taken hold of the world, and was beginning its evil work, will be revealed at the End of Days in its fullest expression. When will this happen? John saw the beginning of the end with the resurrection of an ancient evil:

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy (Revelation 13:1).

Because we live in a fallen world already tainted by sin and evil, this aspect of the satanic plan for mankind is not easy to detect, nor understand. But I believe we should realize that the mystery of iniquity, or hidden lawlessness, will continue to build to a great crescendo until the entire world is under the heel of the Great Red Dragon and the Antichrist Beast (Revelation 12:3; 13:1).

The Apostle John called the mystery of iniquity “the spirit of antichrist,” which was already present in the early church in his day.

“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time” (1 John 2:18).

The many antichrists that emerged in Johns day are energized by demonic powers, and are an expression of the mystery of iniquity, or hidden lawlessness. They still work in the world, and in the church, to this day. Indeed, they are so prevalent today that I could name a dozen of them off the top of my head that have daily or weekly programs on worldwide TV and radio. But the most striking aspect of this is that many of them are “stars” on several Christian Television networks–and Christians send them millions of dollars each week!

They pretend to be the ministers of Christ, but in reality, they are the “many antichrists” that John said would come. They have always been here, and will continue to labor in the church, and in the world, preparing the fields of humanity for harvest by the final Antichrist. Predictably, their evil works are more powerful today, and their influence is greatly enhanced because of the media–radio, TV, and the Internet.

How do you know if you are being influenced by an antichrist teacher or preacher? There are two things you must do: 1. Watch their doctrine; 2. and their lifestyle. Jesus said, ” Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit…Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them” (Matthew 7:16-17,20).

What will be a turning point in the future is that the many antichrists will begin to demonstrate an incredibly deceptive supernatural power; it will be satanic power, but will be attributed to God, and it will be so convincing that many will believe that God is empowering and blessing them!

For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect (Mark 13:22).

Here, Jesus reveals to us that the pseudochristos (false christs) and the pseudoprophētēs  (false prophets) will infiltrate the church. Because they will possess supernatural power, and their ruse will be so seductive, it is possible that even the elect, or those who are truly saved or born-again, may also be deceived. The word for seduce is the Greek word apoplanaō   which means “to lead away from the truth to error,” and that is exactly what they will do: they will draw away people from the real Jesus Christ to an occult version, a pseudochristos, or false Christ.  

I am of the opinion that this is beginning to happen now! Already there are prophets and teachers in the church who do have a “power,” or an “anointing”–but it is not from God; their lifestyle and accompanying false doctrines betray them. An increase of works of power by those who teach unbiblical or questionable doctrines may be an indication that we are observing the beginnings of the strong delusion Paul wrote about at 2 Thess. 2:11.

I do believe that those who are saved will only escape supernatural deception because of the discerning work of the Holy Spirit deep in their heart.

Pray that the Holy Spirit will help you to be more discerning, and be careful of those who claim an “anointing” to do miracles, or those who seem to have power to receive so-called prophetic words. Be extremely cautious of those who claim to be prophets or apostles in these days, and don’t let them quickly lay hands on you. A multitude of false apostles, prophets, and bishops are running around the church today exercising a false anointing and false authority. In truth, they are part of the many antichrists, and we have been warned.

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5).

THE VATICAN AND ALIEN DISCLOSURE: THE COMING STRONG DELUSION by Jeff Wingo

I was rather surprised the other day when I discovered a video produced by a major world organization which clearly is an attempt at soft alien disclosure. In all reality, I couldn’t believe what I was watching; it is so blatant and upfront with the alien lie, and filled with several layers of subtle meaning.

UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund in Chile recently released a video called “UNICEF Marciano.” I tried several online translators for Spanish, which is the official language of Chile (also, Chilean Spanish), and each time the word Marciano was translated as Martian.  So, what we have here is a video produced by UNICEF in Chile called, UNICEF Martian.

The video also has a subtitle, “No pierdas la oportunidad de aceptar a alguien distinto, no pierdas la oportunidad de que te cambien la vida,” which translates as, “Do not miss the opportunity to accept someone else, do not miss the opportunity to change you(r) life (again, Google Translate).

Here is the video, which will be followed by my commentary:

This video is used under United States laws of Fair Use, for educational and discussion purposes only. It remains the property of UNICEF.

As you can see, UNICEF Chile has chosen to use an alien-looking child, apparently the UNICEF Martian, in the video to teach the acceptance of others who appear different. While that is obviously a good message, they could have taken a traditional approach and just used a human child. But, they chose an alien theme, and used a “star-child”  instead.

The Earth children are shocked at the appearance of the alien boy, and at once begin to tease and taunt him in various ways. That is, until the alien boy uses his spiritual powers to levitate three Earth children who are participating in a play. Once that occurs, the Earth children accept the alien child, and he becomes part of the group, and is a central figure in a class photograph. Clearly his “differentness” has set him apart from the others, and the children of Earth fully accept, not only the fact that he is an alien being, but his supernatural abilities as well.

But did you catch the hint of the fall of man? Did you see the forbidden fruit provided to humankind by the reptilian-appearing being? Obviously, our entire race fell because Adam and Eve followed the lies of the Serpent, a fallen reptilian creature, disobeyed God, and ate the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

In the video the human girl drops a pencil. The alien boy picks up the pencil and hands it to the young human girl. She takes the pencil, which is covered with some kind of green substance; this substance appears to ooze from the hand of the alien child. Is this a hint, winking at the Scriptures, which describe an alteration of the human genome through the illicit activity of the Sons of God in Genesis 6?

When the alien boy picks up the pencil and hands it back to the human female it is covered with a green genetic substance. Does that act symbolize Genesis 6 in this video? For it is in the book of Genesis, where we first learn that the Sons of God took human women and not only rewrote, but corrupted the human genome with their own DNA. This evil act on the part of the Fallen Ones resulted in the creation of the genetically hybrid monstrosities called Nephilim. Is it possible that the fallen pencil represents an alien attempt to correct, or rewrite human genetics; to restore fallen humanity, to pick up the pencil and rewrite the story with a new ending, resulting in a new kind of human: a Neo-Nephilim?

According to this New Age website, the color green, which was on the pencil, hints at healing and fertility, again, shades of Genesis 6. Indeed, this video shouts Genesis chapter 6.

Next we see the alien boy at lunch. He sets down beside a human boy. The alien child then gives his human friend a piece of fruit. Is it a coincidence that the fruit is an apple, which historically represents the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil? Notice also that the apple is not red or green, but an indigo color.

The color indigo is significant because of its symbolic importance in various occult traditions. Indigo, or more specifically blue, is associated various other deities and represents immortality and perfection.

According to one New Age website “Indigo (which I think is the color of the apple in the video), is associated with psychic ability. In healing, use indigo for relaxation, reassurance and promoting psychism. In the aura, indigo signifies a seeker, often of spiritual truth.”

It is clearly no coincidence that after the alien child gives the human boy the indigo apple, the next scene is where the alien child uses his psychic powers to levitate the children on stage. Notice also, in the stage scene, the children are in a play with a wizard, or magician, who is also seen wielding a magic wand (anointing one child with the wand), and the background of the stage has TWO trees–does this represent the Garden of Eden with its two trees, the Tree of Life, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil? Does the magician represent “God” the creator, and the reptilian alien boy with god-like powers, the coming of the Serpent to correct the “mistakes” of God through the way of gnosis, or hidden knowledge; in other words, to lift mankind to a higher level of knowledge or consciousness through occultic god-like powers? After all, the Serpent told Eve that if she ate the fruit she would become like the “gods,” knowing good and evil, in other words, the forbidden knowledge of the fallen angels would be gained through the rebellious act of disobeying God.

What really surprised me about this video is that it apparently has the approval of the Vatican.  On the 21st of April, 2015 at the Vatican, and in the presence of Pope Francis, Anthony Lake, the Director of UNICEF, and the deputy president of CONMEBOL, a South American Football Confederation, signed agreements supporting a Chilean educational program called Scholas Occurrentes; this is all supported by the Pope.

This video was apparently put together by UNICEF and CONMEBOL with the full support of the Vatican. The “alien” content of this should not be a surprise then, considering some of the statements that have come from the Vatican about baptizing aliens, calling aliens “brothers,” etc. Here we have a program supported by Pope Francis creating a video intentionally made to introduce children to the alien lie.

It’s no wonder the Vatican needs more exorcists as this kind of worldview will introduce, and reinforce, a belief in extraterrestrial alien beings, which are in fact, fallen angels; the devils in disguise.

Of course the naysayers will howl and cry that I have misinterpreted this video, or misrepresented its intent. In both cases it is not my intention to misrepresent anything. But, I do think this video, and its subtle message, should be exposed for what it is. In my opinion it is an attempt to normalize in the minds of all people the importance of accepting the alien lie when the Vatican chooses to reveal it to the world.

Jesus told us that many false prophets and false Christs would come to the world with supernatural powers so incredibly capable of deceiving even the very elect, those saved or born-again. We should be aware of this kind of emotionally charged propaganda in these last days.

A WARNING ABOUT THE COMING ALIEN DECEPTION

Here is a video by Pastor Charles Lawson from Knoxville Tn., about the Vatican and alien disclosure. Pastor Lawson is one of the few Christian Pastors that I know of who is warning the Christian church about the alien deception. I do not personally know Pastor Lawson, but I find his analysis intriguing, and right on target. I urge you to watch the video.
