THE QUESTION OF THE AGES by Jeff Wingo

5-24-15-bill-j

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas! It really is a very beautiful time of year, and something always happens at this time that I think is just amazing. As you know, many stores and radio stations play wall-to wall Christmas music, and many people go about their business trying to ignore it. After a while it just becomes more noise in the background.

But, if you listen to the old songs, the familiar tunes of Christmas, fill the air with the good news about the newborn Christ child. It’s truly the only time of year that immerses the secular world in the gospel! People who otherwise wouldn’t listen to a sermon or a gospel message will listen (even if forced at the mall because it plays in the background), to the Christmas music played in every store and mall in the nation, and most of the old tunes declare the Glory of God through the birth of Christ in the music of the season.

Just consider the words of one song, Hark The Herald Angels Sing:

Hark the herald angels sing                      Christ, by highest heaven adored
“Glory to the newborn king”                     Christ the everlasting Lord
Peace on earth, and mercy mild               Late in time behold him come
God and sinners reconciled                       Offspring of the favored one
Joyful all ye nations rise                            Veiled in flesh, the God had seen
Join the triumph of the skies                    Hail the incarnate deity
With angelic host proclaim                       Pleased, as man with men to dwell
“Christ is born in Bethlehem”                  Jesus, our Emmanuel
Hark the herald angels sing                      Hark the herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn king”                     “Glory to the newborn king”

Hail the heaven born prince of peace      Born that man no more may die
Hail the son of righteousness                    Born to raise the sons of earth
Light and life to all he brings                     Born to give them second birth
Risen with healing in his wings                 Hark the herald angels sing                                                                             Glory to the newborn king

Lyrics by Charles Wesley, 1739.


On my Contact page I received a very good question from Jason, which I would like to post here. As I stated in the post above during the Christmas season, if you go to the stores or the mall your probably going to hear some Christian Christmas music. I believe that may cause many people to think–is Christ real?  Was there a virgin birth?  If Christ is God, why did he come to Earth as a baby in Bethlehem?

Those are good questions posed by real people searching for truth. Many in our culture say there is no truth, or, your truth is not my truth; or, they deny that truth exists at all! Before His crucifixion, when He stood before the Roman Governor Pilate, Jesus declared His reason for coming to the world:

“To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice” (John 18:37).

The sly Governor looked at Jesus and retorted,  “What is truth?”  Unfortunately, Pilate could not recognize truth even when it came from the One who declared that He is “the way, the truth, and the life,” and the only way to the Father (John 14:6).

I admire those who are willing to consider the Christian message. Some will accept the Word, and some will not, and yet there are others who will hear the message and think about it. That provides the necessary time for the Holy Spirit to minister God’s truth to their heart.

My only advice would be don’t wait too long. The Bible says that, “Today is the day of salvation,” (2 Cor. 2:6),  none of us have a promise of tomorrow in this world.

Here is Jason’s question followed by my response:

“If god created us, who created god? Did he create himself?”

Ah, the question of the ages! Thank you Jason for your question, I hope I can answer the question to your satisfaction. The Bible never seeks to defend the existence of God, it just states as matter of fact that God is. Even the name of God revealed as the LORD (יְהֹוָה Yᵉhôvâh) declares that He is the sole Creator and initiator of all that exists, and that He is “self-Existent or eternal.”

As for the question, “Who created God,” we must recognize that the question contains a flaw because it presupposes that God, in order to exist, required a start or beginning. We know that the universe had a beginning, yet to create or bring into being such an immense universe would require an enormous amount of power and energy. Yet, God is beyond the universe, an uncaused self-existent Being, eternal and beyond nature, who creates space, time, and matter, at will by the power of His spoken Word alone. He is incomprehensible and beyond human understanding because He separate from Creation and exists outside of time and matter. The Bible declares His eternality:
“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God” (Psalm 90:2).

The beauty and mystery of the universe declares His glory, Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork…”

And yet, even though the universe and nature itself declares His power, majesty, and glory, man still refuses to acknowledge God. Science believes BY FAITH that the universe came into existence all by itself, and that life on Earth sprang into being from nothing–a primordial stew, or a chemical pool, which contained the right ingredients; and that by chance, this self-existent chemical mix was hit by a bolt of lightning or jump started in some amazing way by another energy source of some kind.

Yet the Bible faithfully declares that we did indeed have a beginning, and that beginning wasn’t by way of a pool of random chemicals, which coalesced over time (billions of years), and random chance. Our beginning was the Word from God: In the beginning (time), God created the heavens and the earth (space and matter).

To this answer I might add that Jesus, being the eternal God in flesh (John 1:1, 14), also declared His eternality before the Jews by stating, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30). The Jews listening to Him fully understood what He was saying, and in response they said “You, a mere man, claim to be God” (John 10:33), and took up stones to kill Him.

Later Jesus said unto them, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” With this claim to eternality Jesus used the very name of God “I am,” which God gave to Moses (Ex. 3:14). The name, “I am that I am” refers to Gods eternal, self-existent nature. In other words, there is nothing “behind” God, He is self-sustaining and self-existing. He exists from eternity to eternity, meaning that He is not subject to time–He always is existing. From our perspective God exists in the present, and the future–yet in truth, He is God,  without beginning or end.

Jesus stepped into time, lived a perfect life, died on the cross for our sins, arose victorious from the dead, and ascended to heaven. Believe the gospel and be saved. For whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13).

I hope that helps, and thanks for asking.

2016: A WORD OF HOPE AND A WORD OF WARNING by Jeff Wingo

Christ and the Rich Young Ruler by Heinrich Hofmann, 1889.

Christ and the Rich Young Ruler by Heinrich Hofmann, 1889.

For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:16

Happy New Year everyone! It’s the beginning of a new year and it is my hope and prayer that the Lord will continue to bless us with His peace and hope. The peace of God peace comes only through Christ by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27).

The Lord also gives us hope, a deep abiding trust that God will be with us no matter the circumstance.

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost (Romans 15:13).

Of course the ultimate expression of our hope from heaven is the return of the King of Kings.

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13).

It is my hope that you will find your true peace in Jesus Christ. If you are looking forward to this new year with fear or uncertainty then know that Christ can calm your fear and bring peace in the midst of turmoil.

I am just like you, I do not know what the future will bring in this new year. God looks at our world and He must weep at all the sin, degradation, and unbelief. Most of the turmoil we see on the news is caused by human sin and selfishness. Behind it all humanity is pushed forward into even greater sin by the Fallen Dark Powers that rule the world from the spiritual dimension.

I often wonder why the Lord allows it to go on, but I also know that He has reason for allowing things to progress as they are. He sees the evil that goes on behind the scenes, among both humans and fallen angels; and although they may think they have the upper hand, it is the Lord who rules over the affairs of both men and angels.

Our ultimate battle though is with the Fallen Ones who operate behind the scenes. That is why the apostle Paul said we should be “strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might” (Ephesians 6:10). Paul goes further by instructing us to “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (Eph. 611).

It is important to know that when Paul made use of the word “wiles” he used the Greek word methodeia which refers to the cunning arts used by the Devil and his fallen angels. It refers to satanic crafts and methods of trickery devised by Satan to lead humanity away from God and Christ, and into the darkness of sin and depravity.

Think about one of the main methods employed by the Fallen Ones: the sin of idolatry. The sin of idolatry, or the worship of false gods, destroys more souls than any other sin on earth. Indeed, idolatry is designed to move humanity far away from the true God into all kinds of evil activities and beliefs.

The main focus on this blog is the sin of alien idolatry. If the Fallen Ones can lead someone into the worship of alien gods his work is done. Ultimately, the sin of alien idolatry will lead to destruction. For proof of this we need look no further than the Heavens Gate cult , which in 1997 resulted in the mass suicide of 39 people. What was their goal? To join a UFO they thought was following the Hale-Bop comet. Their leader, Marshall Applewhite, said “it was the only way to evacuate this Earth.” Later two former members of the group also committed suicide.

Everyone who follows the lie of the alien gods will be destroyed in the end because this sin, like all sin, leads to the Broadway of eternal destruction: a Christless eternity, forever cut off from the presence and blessings of God.

According to the book of Revelation during the Great Tribulation billions of souls will follow the Beast: this is the ultimate UFO cult which will find its expression in worldwide worship of alien gods: the Beast and the Dragon, an alien reptilian image by the way.

Rev.13:4: And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

The Greek word for dragon is drakōn, defined as “a dragon, a great serpent, or a name for Satan.” According to Strong’s it is also a “a fabulous kind of serpent (perhaps as supposed to fascinate).” This is interesting when you realize that the root word of  drakōn  is the Greek word dérkomai which means “to look, to see.” It refers to the keen eyesight of the serpent.

This is an allusion to the Serpent in the Garden of Eden who was more “subtle” or “crafty” “than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made” (Genesis 3:1).

The Serpent we deal with today is the same creature that confronted our first parents in the Garden. His eyesight is very keen as he works his subtlety or craft on each of us. He knows our weaknesses; and he works night and day to lead us away from Christ into the dark depths of the knowledge of good and evil.

As we enter the new year of 2016 let us commit our ways unto the Lord. As the Word says “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:6). In that way, and by faith through the power of the Holy Spirit, the Lord will enable us to stay on the narrow path, “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:14).

THE KEY TO RECOGNIZING SIGNS OF THE END OF DAYS by Jeff Wingo

The Siege and Destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans Under the Command of Titus, A.D. 70, Oil on canvas, 1850, David Roberts.

The Siege and Destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans Under the Command of Titus, A.D. 70, Oil on canvas, 1850, David Roberts.

During the recent blood moon eclipse, it was brought to my attention that a certain well-known pastor had predicted that Christ would return September 27-28th. Obviously it did not happen. Earlier in the month we had the Shemitah, which supposedly occurred on September 13; this also spurred a string of predictions regarding the imminent collapse of the American economy. That didn’t happen either. Not that it couldn’t happen, but it didn’t happen like some people had hoped and predicted. In other words, the end of the world predictions were all wrong once again.

Then, to my utter amazement I discovered another prediction! Another Christian leader predicted that the end of the world was going to happen on Wednesday, October 7th. The funny thing was, I didn’t discover this failed prophecy until the next day, Thursday, October 8! WRONG AGAIN!

If another Christian leader sets a date for the end of the world, or the return of Christ, mark that person as a false prophet. Most of them won’t apologize, they just try to spin it like they didn’t do anything wrong. This reminds me of the kid with his hand in the cookie jar; he was caught, but he won’t admit a thing.

Predictions like these are always going to be wrong! How can I be so positive in that statement? Because these predictions come from the minds of prophetic wannabe’s who aren’t really satisfied with Bible prophecy as it is written, and so they have to embellish circumstances, and in the end they always prove to be wrong. The result is that real Bible prophecy is tarnished and discredited, and thousands of people end up with damaged faith. That is the fruit produced  by the prognostications of the false prophets in todays church.

There is an answer to this madness: stop it and read the Bible.

REAL BIBLE PROPHECY

Joel 2:30-31:  And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

Notice that Joel says that there will be a “blood” moon, but it comes when the sun goes dark (or begins to go dark, since the moon reflects sunlight). But the key here is that the blood moon happens right before the Day of the Lord; a day called “great” and “terrible.”

Jesus added to Joel by saying:

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  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” (Matt.24:29-31).

 

Notice that the celestial signs, which are a harbinger of the Second Coming, happen after the Tribulation. Not before, but after. This time the moon will not reflect light because the sun will be darkened.

THE TIMING OF THE ARRIVAL  OF ANTICHRIST IS FORETOLD IN SCRIPTURE

In the late 1980’s I heard a prophecy teacher say that the Holy Spirit revealed to him that Mikhail Gorbachev, former leader of the Soviet Union, was the Antichrist. I also heard a Pentecostal minister say that the Holy Spirit revealed to him that when Richard Nixon died, the Tribulation will begin. Well, old Gorby is not the Antichrist, that is plain to see, and Nixon died in 1994, 21 years ago, and the Tribulation hasn’t started yet.

AGAIN, FALSE PROPHECIES FROM THE MINDS OF MEN WHO DO NOT KNOW THE MIND OF GOD!

So, what does the Bible say regarding the appearance of the antichrist? As it happens, Paul gave us a series of events regarding the time when the of Man of Sin will be revealed to the world. Did you know that?

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 Th. 2:1-3).

Notice that just as Paul admonished the church at Thessalonica not to be shaken or troubled in their mind about these things, we too are not to be rattled by false prophecies coming from some of these well-known Christians.  Just because a person is in some kind of Christian leadership position, that does not mean that they also make a good prophet, especially if they ignore the clear teaching of Scripture not to set dates; all that does is tarnish the name of Christ, and upset the faith of many people.

Secondly, Paul ties the gathering of Christians with the Second Coming of Christ. The gathering is the rapture, but notice that it does not happen until four clear and distinct signs appear in the world.

  1. There will be a great apostasy. This is different from the general apostasy we see in the church today. The Greek here reads “the apostasy,” referring to something unique. Some render it “the falling away.” It refers to a total abandonment from Christianity by those in the church. It comes from a root referring to a bill of divorce. In other words, mankind will divorce the very heart of our faith: God the Father, Jesus Christ, and biblical salvation by faith in Christ.
  2. The revelation of the Antichrist, the Man of Sin.
  3. An open display of satanic supernatural power unlike anything so far seen in the world, from the beginning of time, to this day.
  4. The Man of Sin will present himself to the world as God, and demand worship. He will set in a Temple-like structure and commit the Abomination of Desolation predicted by both Daniel and Jesus (Matt. 24:15; Daniel 9:27; 11:31; 12:11).

When we see these four things we will know for certain we are near (or in) the time of the Great Tribulation, and the Second Coming of Jesus. Don’t be shaken by the prophets of today. Let them blow and huff as they spew out their “prophecies.” Don’t lose your peace and be disturbed by any of it.

You now have four distinct signs by which you can understand the times. Have faith in Christ, and stand on the firm foundation of His Word.

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost (2 Peter 1: 19-21).

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!

JESUS WARNED US ABOUT THE COMING STRONG DELUSION by Jeff Wingo

All of you are acutely aware that our world is in grave turmoil. The troubles seem as if they are insurmountable, and they keep coming as they pile one on top of another. As time goes by it seems as if the troubles keep crashing onto the shores of our world like waves of a violent hurricane; and the shores are quickly eroding. In the end there is nowhere to turn, and nowhere to escape.

But all of this was predicted by Jesus. He warned us that the conditions of the last days would be filled with violence, racial strife, economic turmoil, and deception.

But the first warning He gave to His disciples on the Mount of Olives was about a powerful deceptive religious force that would be so compelling, it would captivate the minds of almost everyone.

Matthew 24: 4-5, 11, 23-24, 26:  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….And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many….Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect….Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

The world has always been filled with false prophets and deceptive religious leaders. I read a lot of news, and almost every week I read about a new false prophet somewhere. In fact, Christian television these days is filled with them. All of them have one thing in common: they all claim to be “anointed.” Interestingly, Jesus warned us that they would claim a false anointing, and that is what the word “Christ” means: to be an anointed one. But Jesus said they would not have a real anointing from the Holy Spirit. While they may claim to be an “anointed one,” what they actually turn out to be is a  ψευδόχριστος— a pseudochristos, or false anointed one.

Pseudo, meaning false, and christos meaning Christ: a false Christ.

While there is a true anointing of the Holy Spirit that comes upon a person as they testify, teach, or preach the Word of God, there are many who come in the name of Christ, and, who demonstrate by their false doctrines, that they are in truth a manifestation of pseudochristos. In this way they also act as a mediator between God and man; something only the real Jesus Christ can do (1 Timothy 2:5), which further proves that they are a pseudochristos.

That is why it is imperative that we know the Word of God for ourselves. A true minister of Christ follows the leading of the Holy Spirit, pointing others away from himself to the biblical Christ. He leads others to Jesus, not to miracles or money, and certainly not to himself.

John 16:13:  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

But Jesus also spoke about a powerful deceptive religious force that would begin to capture the minds people everywhere. Indeed, this religious force will prove to be so dynamic and persuasive that it will lead humanity straight into the arms of the Man of Sin, the Antichrist, who is the Beast from the Abyss.

The coming Strong Delusion will be that force. More than false doctrine (although the pseudochristos will be great teachers of lies and false doctrine), they will also possess real supernatural abilities to perform great signs and wonders. They will capture humanity not just with false doctrine, but with power. Furthermore, they will appear as gods because they will have the power to affect humans, not just in a physical way, but in a deeply spiritual way as well. That’s what makes a miracle impressive anyway, it alters the course of nature, and deeply affects the human spirit and soul.

Since Jesus is God in the flesh (KJV 1 Timothy 3:16) , it is my opinion at this point that the coming pseudochristos will also claim to be God, or, gods in the flesh. In other words, they will claim to be a revelation of the Christ, or, the “anointed one.” This may be perceived in the minds of many people to be the return, or Second Coming of Christ. Truly, this will be the full-blown expression of the pseudochristos and the disclosure of Antichrist.

One of the biggest lies we will be presented with will be that the aliens are our creators; and their coming will appear to be the return of the ancient gods who created man in the likeness of God.

There is another salient point I would like to bring out of the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 24. And that is the way the pseudochristos will pretend to lead the people of Earth to find the Christ (in reality the Antichrist).

Matthew 24:26:  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

I find it very fascinating that Jesus warned us not to believe those who claim to find “Christ” in a desert place, or from a secret chamber; either here on Earth, or (possibly) near Earth, perhaps in our atmosphere, or space near-by (an inter-dimensional portal??). The reason I find this absolutely intriguing is that according to John the Revelator, the Beast from the Abyss, who is the Antichrist, will be released FROM A DESERT PLACE OR A SECRET CHAMBER opened by an angel, a supernatural being!

Revelation 9:1, 3a, 11 :  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit… And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth…And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

As I wrote in my book Alien Antichrist, the revelation of the Antichrist Beast to the world will occur when Satan is given a key to the bottomless pit (the abyss). At that time he uses the key to release the imprisoned locusts (genetically hybrid beings), and their King Apollyon/Abaddon, who is the Antichrist, a powerful fallen angel, from a secret chamber either deep in the Earth, or near Earth.

Truly, Jesus warned us ahead of time.

He warned us of the appearance of many pseudochristos who will possess supernatural power to do great signs and wonders. And He also warned us not to be taken in by the deceitful lies of those who will claim that Jesus (or a Messiah/Savior type being), will come from a SECRET CHAMBER.

The real Jesus will not come from a hidden place. He will come at a crucial point in time after the bowls of wrath are poured out upon the Earth (Rev.16). Once the wrath of God is poured out, the entire Earth, and the visible universe near us, will be darkened. Then, and only then will the sign of the Son of Man appear in the heavens. That sign will signal the return of the real Jesus Christ as He becomes visible to the entire planet.

Matthew 24:29-31: Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 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.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

WHY DOES GOD SEND THE STRONG DELUSION? by Jeff Wingo

Satan before the Lord by Corrado Giaquinto, 1750.

Satan before the Lord by Corrado Giaquinto, 1750.

The spirit of antichrist is a powerful force in the world. Its purpose is to blind the mind in order to prevent the reception of godly truth, especially truth regarding personal salvation through Christ as found in the Bible.

Spiritual blindness is a principle in Scripture.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4: But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

The god of this world of course is the Fallen Cherub, Satan, who uses spiritual power to his advantage, working in the minds of all people to blind them to the truth. That is why we have so many lies in the world.

That is also why we have so much evil: the human proclivity toward evil is driven in part by the spiritual blindness imposed by Satan and his fallen angels. The main power behind human evil though is personal sinfulness; we cannot discount that. The only remedy for both, satanic interference, and natural human sinfulness, is forgiveness and redemption which is found only in Christ.

Salvation through Jesus opens the blinded mind, sets free the sinful captive, and provides power to overcome personal sin. Christ also provides healing and deliverance from the dark powers who rule the current world system.

There is no other power available in the universe that can free a man or woman from sin other than Christ. No ritual, religious belief, or personal effort can set a human being free: God has provided the only remedy, and that is found only in Jesus Christ:

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11).

 

All beings in the universe, both human and spiritual, must bow the knee to honor and reverence the person of Christ. All must yield to His authority, “in devout recognition of the name which Jesus received from God” (Thayer).

That is why the Christian can use the name and power of Christ to overcome sin, and fallen spiritual powers. Only Christians can repel and stop a satanic attack through the name of Christ. Non-Christians do not have this authority; they can however call upon the name of Jesus. His grace provides for all.

But a demonstration of the power of His name is intended to lead the lost one to Christ, His name is not a toy to be played with, nor are we engaged in a game: the battle is real and fallen entities are real. Satan does not play games–he plays for keeps, and that my friends is eternal hell.

The conspiracy we face is real. The god of this age has spiritually blinded most of the human race. An unfortunate truth is that most of humanity will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven because they refuse to accept the truth about Christ and the redemption He provides. They are “blinded” by the allure of the world, the desires of the sinful nature, and the god of the current world system (1 John 2:15-17).

This is why so many people believe in aliens, false religions, and the many other lies that permeate the current world system. If we refuse truth when presented with it, we open ourselves to even more lies, and in the end, the last lie will be the strong delusion.

Shockingly, the biggest lie in the world will come to the people of Earth from God; it will come through the unveiling of Antichrist, and will be a strong judgment against an unbelieving, rebellious world. Although that is a hard truth to accept, it is a deep spiritual truth presented in His Word. The lie of the Man of Sin, the Antichrist, will be presented to the world because they refuse His truth. It’s that simple.

Once the restraining power of the Holy Spirit is removed the revelation of Antichrist will come.

“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thess.2: 8-12).

 

Paul wrote: “and for this cause God will send them energeia plane or strong delusion. The delusion is sent “because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” This makes it clear why God sends the strong delusion.

Don’t believe the lies of this world. Don’t believe the lies coming to you from the media, and certainly don’t fall for the alien lie. The illusions of UFOs and aliens are lies created by the god of this world to lead you from the truth of Christ. God, through Christ created the world and everything in it (Colossians 1:16), not aliens, or evolution (which is another big lie).

The coming lie that will flow from the mouth of the Arch Deceiver to the world is that our creator is not God, but an advanced race of extraterrestrial aliens. The lie will be convincing because it will be very difficult to dismiss the aliens, and their lies, when they are standing right in front of you.

Seek the truth of Christ. Read His Word, and allow the blessed Holy Spirit to lead and guide you into all truth (John 16:13).

Do not walk according to the lies of this world. Walk in the ways of Jesus, He will show you the way because that is who He is: He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6).

Ephesians 4:17-18: This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.

THE WORLDS RISING STAR AND THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST by Jeff Wingo

Lifting the First Seal of Apocalypse and the White Rider of war. Illuminated page from the 17th century Tolkovy Apocalypse, Moscow

Lifting the First Seal of Apocalypse and the White Rider of war. Illuminated page from the 17th century Tolkovy Apocalypse, Moscow

The world loves its “stars,” those in pop culture who appear to be “champions.” They seem to have it all: money, fame, and worldwide appeal. This is actually a biblical principle in operation: Jesus, speaking to His disciples, told them that the world will hate them because they are not of the world: “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you” (John 15:18). But of the world, and its love for its own, that would be self-evident: “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own” (John 15:19).

There is one rising star the world will love: as ironic as it sounds, the Beast. Yes, pop culture, and most Christians, call the Beast the Antichrist; but the Bible describes him as a Beast, and not just any beast, but a wild Beast.

There are three places in the Bible that reveal the true identity of the Antichrist Beast. Many people do not seem to like it when I show them these verses because it blows apart any illusions that the Antichrist is a human being: he is not. To be perfectly clear, the Antichrist is not a human being at all: he is a Fallen Angel, and he is currently being held in the dark cage of Tartarus, also called the abyss, or the bottomless pit.

  •   Rev. 11:7: And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
  • Rev.17: 18: The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
  • Rev. 9:11: And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. Note: it is at the beginning of this chapter an angel descends and opens the bottomless pit, verse 1, called in Greek phrear the “well” of the bottomless pit.

These three verses reveal that the Beast is from the bottomless pit. The Greek word is abyssos phrear, and it actually describes a type of cistern, or a well going deep into the Earth; it is a well in Tartarus, even deeper than Tartarus itself. It is the well of the abyss, or the lowest place in Tartarus. This is why the devils that Jesus encountered on Earth were terrified of being sent to the abyss; as evil as they are, even the devils are deeply fearful of the place.

In Luke we see an example of this. Jesus encountered a demonized man called Legion. The Legion was fearful of Christ, and begged not to be sent to the abyss:  “And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep” (Luke 8:31). The word deep is the Greek word, abyss, which again, refers to the well of Tartarus.

Could it be that the Beast and his locust army are so evil that even Earth-bound demons are afraid of going to the abyss because they realize they will be in the company of these imprisoned beings?

The reason I ask the question is that it seems reasonable to conclude from the biblical text that the opposite reaction will actually occur on Earth among human beings. According to Revelation when the Beast is released from the abyss the world will not run in fear, but marvel with great admiration and wonder at the Beast. In other words, the world will find another “star” to follow and fall in love with!

Rev. 13: 3c: …”and all the world wondered after the beast.”

The word wondered means to admire, or marvel at. Thayer says it means, “to be wondered at, to be had in admiration.” Evidently the world will fall in love with the Beast. They will admire him with the same hypnotic devotion and admiration they give to celebrities and stars of the world. I hear the ringing of Jesus words so loud it is almost deafening:

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own.

The essence of the world is driven by the sinful desires of human beings, the supernatural sinful nature of the Fallen Ones, and the spirit of the age which promotes both: the zeitgeist, or the innate growth of the spirit of antichrist driven by the self-centered proclivities of both humans and fallen angels. Christians around the world are suffering under an explosion of the spirit of antichrist, most have been for years, but within the past ten years especially, it seems as if the spirit of antichrist is gaining more power and influence.

As a result, we see the beginnings of the full-blown nature of Antichrist manifesting around the world. This may be the beginning of what Paul called the Great Falling Away (2 Thess. 2:3). It is interesting to note that once the Falling Away occurs, the Man of Sin, or Antichrist is revealed.

The word for love that Jesus used in the above quote, “the world would love its own,” is a Greek word, phileo (imperfect tense according to Bullinger), which means “would love, and continue loving!”

Oh, the world will love the Antichrist Beast: they will admire him, love him, follow him, and be amazed at him. He will be the new star of the world. But, given what he is, how is that even possible? His nature is totally evil and given to destruction; his whole kingdom, Babylon the Great will be built on lies, mind control, and human sacrifice; and this doesn’t even include the fact that he will rise from the abyss? How can it be?

That, my friends, is the power of the great falling away, and the deeply spiritual influence of the strong delusion which will be released on the world.

According to Jesus, the world will love its own, because the world will have the same desires as the Beast. What are those desires? To shake off the rule of God and His Son Jesus Christ. It’s always the same: those who reject Christ cry out, “crucify him!;” and, “We will not have that man rule over us!”

He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.  And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.  But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us….”  (Luke 19:12-14).

Jesus of course is the Nobleman who went into the far country of heaven. He received His Kingdom from the Father, and at the right time, He will return. At the end of the parable Jesus said, “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring them hither, and slay them before me: (Luke 19:27).

Jesus will physically return, and when He does, the Beast, the False Prophet, and all of the enemies of Christ will be slain. He will rule the earth with a rod of iron, and all of the nations of the earth will submit to His rule (Rev.19:15). Only Christ can cleanse the Earth of the influence of the spirit of antichrist. Only those who accept Christ, and submit to His rule will be able to shake off the drunken slumber of the spirit of the age caused by the influence of the spirit of antichrist and the strong delusion.

Seek the Lord Jesus. Submit to His righteous rule now, before the full manifestation of the strong delusion, and the star power of the Antichrist Beast. When that time comes, those who are saved and under the authority of Christ may suffer, or even be martyred, but they will be free from the supernatural influence of the spirit of antichrist and the strong delusion.

But those who refuse Christ now, may not have a chance: we don’t know when the strong influence of the Antichrist will begin. And if you refuse Christ now, you may not have another chance. You may be caught in the web of lies that will flow over this world like a tsunami.

Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near (Isaiah 55:6).

DON’T BE DISCOURAGED AT THE END OF DAYS by Jeff Wingo

Christ healing the blind, by Nicolas Colombel, 1682.

Christ healing the blind, by Nicolas Colombel, 1682.

With all that is happening in the world it is easy to be down and discouraged, if not frightened. I don’t need to give you an unending laundry list of problems to prove my point. All of you know what is going on in the world. All of you read the news, and you are probably asking the same questions I am, especially the why question. The questions are natural, and there is nothing wrong with them. All of us are seeking answers because we are all in the same boat. Truthfully, our planet is reeling under tremendous pressures at this moment as we move forward, getting closer to the fulfillment of prophetic time.

revelation-620x407

What do I mean by prophetic time? By that I am referring to the period of time when God begins to directly intervene in the affairs of the world. It is His time to deal with the nations as He works to bring the world under total submission to His rule. For this to happen though we must go through the trials of the Great Tribulation. The good news is, all of the troubles of the world will come to an end at the Second Coming and the Millennial Reign of Christ.

Meanwhile, God is directing the course of events, of that I am confident. Looking at everything going on though, it’s almost as if He has forgotten us. It’s not that He has abandoned us to the woes of our planet as we spin around the sun. He is with us, and will be with us till the end of time. So don’t be discouraged at the End of Days because there is hope; although it is not found in the empty promises of politicians, or pie-in-the sky proclamations of the religious prophets of the world. Our hope is found in Jesus Christ, and the Bible here and now, and ultimately, at His return.

Lord I want to see!

Luke 18:35-43:  And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:  And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.  And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.  And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.  And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him, Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

Jesus healing the sick by Gustav Dore, 19th century.

Jesus healing the sick by Gustav Dore, 19th century.

Sometimes we just have to cry out to God for understanding, and the Bible promises that He will hear, and provide insight, wisdom, and guidance. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James 1:5). I have yet seen the moment when I sincerely asked for wisdom and the Lord turned me down. He does freely give wisdom to those who want to listen, and He also opens the eyes of the blind so they may see the truth. But I must warn you: when you ask God for wisdom, He will provide exactly what you need, and if He deals with your heart about an issue you must give heed. That is part of receiving from God, you have to accept the whole package. If you are unwilling to act on His Word, the truth is, He won’t give it: and, you must have faith, and not be double minded.

 James 1:6-8:  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.  For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Faith is important, but not blind faith; that is like walking into a dark tunnel believing the end is near when in reality, the end is sealed up and dark, with no hope of escape. Contrary to what atheists and unbelievers claim, faith in the God of the Bible is not blind. Throughout the centuries God has proven Himself faithful to those who choose to hold to His Word. That is why He gave us the Bible in the first place: for it is in the ancient pages of the Bible that the people of our time, in our place in history, can clearly see how God has worked in ages past, and how He intends to work in the future.

Psalms_16-81

According to Thayer, faith is “the conviction that God exists and is the creator and ruler of all things, the provider and bestower of eternal salvation through Christ.” He goes on to state that faith is “a strong and welcome conviction or belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through whom we obtain eternal salvation in the kingdom of God.”

The Bible states that “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). According to Albert Barnes commentary, the word substance here rendered from the Greek word hupostasis which means “confident, or confidence.” What this means is that our trust in God has a substantial quality, (it is not a heartfelt fantasy), because it is founded on the nature of God as revealed in the Bible. In other words, we have confidence in God through His Word, which develops over time as a firm trust leading to assurance; and assurance in the nature of God builds confidence that He exists and can be trusted because of the evidence found in history and the Bible.

That is why Paul rightly stated, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

Christ walking on the sea, by Amédée Varint, 19th century.

The bottom line is that our faith is a firm confidence in God: we learn to trust Him as we become more familiar with His ways as revealed in the Bible. Even when we are not faithful God remains so. Our faith or confident trust in is in the character of God. We learn that He is one who can be relied on in good times, and in bad. He holds the future of the world, and He also holds my personal individual future.

The Bible declares that God sees the end from the beginning. There is nothing man, or the Fallen Ones, can do that surprises Him. He controls all things:

Isaiah 46:9-10: Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.

That is why we sometimes ask the why questions. We find it rather hard to believe that God allows evil, and evil things to continue, especially when the evil in this world touches us, or our loved ones. We must remember that we live in a fallen world filled with fallen people, and fallen spiritual beings. And reading the Bible we also begin to understand that God has a purpose for allowing the hard difficult things, even if we can’t understand why at the moment. Could that be why Paul said that the sufferings of this world produce in us a kind of glory for an eternal purpose?

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (2 Corinthians 4:17).

According to Thayer the word weight means “a weight of glory never to cease, a vast transcendent glory or blessedness.” I would rather be blessed in eternity, than be cursed, or curse the present world, wouldn’t you? When we  place our faith in the eternal God, no matter the circumstances, He will answer with His presence, power, comfort, and strength. Like many people, I have seen great suffering in this world. But when I choose to place my confidence in Christ, I have yet to see Him fail to provide exactly what I need at the moment. His truth is real, personal, and incredible.

One promise that we should all hold to is that Christ loves and cares for us individually. His Word promises that He will never leave us, nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). He is always present to comfort the broken child, correct the wayward son or daughter, and lead and guide us into the eternal glory of His presence. I can believe Him, I can trust Him, and I can learn to walk with confidence in this sinful world knowing that he will always be there: “Even to the end of the world” (Matthew 28: 20).

Please visit me on Facebook and “Like” the page. I place articles and commentary on the Alien Antichrist Facebook page. Join the discussion! Even more important, I encourage you to share these pages! The world is under such heavy deception right now, imagine what it will be like when the restraining power of the Holy Spirit is removed and the Antichrist is released to fulfill his evil work (2 Thessalonians 2:7-11) . So, share the pages, and expose the deception for what it is!


If you would like to know more about Jesus Christ, and personal salvation from the sin of this present world, then click this link to go to the page, How to Know Jesus Christ.

Without Christ there is no hope. What do atheists have to offer? They can argue reality or science all they want, but when cancer strikes, or a car wreck happens what can they offer? This world is more than the reality we see, there is a greater reality that extends far into eternity. Seek to know Jesus, find comfort in His Word, and in His presence. He is true and real, and right now He is reaching out a nail scarred hand, and He is waiting just for you.

Romans 10:13:  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.


bookcoverimagealien-antichrist1[1]If you would like to learn more about Bible prophecy and the Great Deception of the Last Days the then I recommend my book Alien Antichrist, The Terrifying Truth about UFOs and Aliens, Antichrist, and the End of Days.

The book is an in-depth look at the relationship between UFO and alien phenomena and the Antichrist Beast mentioned by the Biblical prophets such as Joel, Daniel, and the Apostles John and Paul. All of them spoke about the end of days and an invasion of our planet by the Fallen Ones. Joel called them a “great army, ” and Daniel said the Beast would lead the world to worship an “alien god.”

Paul said the strong delusion of the last days will be linked with a strange sight in the heavens that is meant to be observed–and he linked this strange sight in the heavens with the Man of Sin, the Antichrist. John revealed that the Fallen Angels will be cast to the Earth, and this will be linked with fire from the heavens–with that said, did you know that angels are called ministers of fire? Are UFOs chariots of God? Or, are the UFO Chariots we see a type of angel? What are the wheels within the wheel that Ezekiel saw, and are they actually UFOs? I address all of this in the book!

Get the book and be informed, then when the aliens suddenly appear in the heavens and invade Earth you will know the truth of what is going on and won’t fall for the Great Deception. The Lord said that His people perish for lack of knowledge: be armed, be informed!

You can get the book at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. And if you have Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Prime you can download a copy free through that program!

THE FIRST SEAL: HAS IT BEEN BROKEN? by Jeff Wingo

The Lamb opening the book with seven seals by Matthias Gerung, 1530-1532.

The Lamb opening the book with seven seals by Matthias Gerung, 1530-1532.

Has the first seal of the 7 sealed scroll of the book of Revelation been broken? As you may recall, the Apostle John, the author of the book of Revelation, was shown a sealed scroll in heaven that no one was worthy to open (Rev. 5); only the Lamb of God was found worthy to receive the scroll and break the seals. This scroll was given to the Lamb, who is Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God “who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). Jesus takes the scroll, breaks the first seal, and begins to unroll it. Each seal reveals an aspect of the judgment of God upon the Earth. Once the Lamb takes the scroll and the 1st seal is broken, John hears a loud noise like roaring thunder.

Revelation 6:1-2

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 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.

With the breaking of the 1st seal, the noise of thunder is heard, which is an ominous warning of Divine judgment. And with that, John is invited to observe the resulting after-effects. It is then that he observes a rider on a white horse. That the rider has a crown is very significant. In this case the crown is the wreath worn by a conqueror. His power in conquest is also implied by the white horse, signifying his position as a victor. According to Albert Barnes, “the horse was an emblem of fleetness, and, consequently, of the rapidity of conquest.” With his bow and crown he goes forth as a victor, conquering the world.

Who is the rider on the white horse? The rider is none other than the Antichrist, the Beast of Revelation. The opinion of commentators of ages past is that this is a symbol of Christ, going forth, conquering the world with the power of the gospel. While it is true that the gospel has the power to redeem the human heart, and thus conquer the power of sin, Jesus did not come to Earth the first time as a conquering king to subdue the nations of the Earth; He came as the Redeemer of mankind, and He said His kingdom is not of this world:

John 18:36:  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Jesus will subdue the nations at His Second Coming. But before He returns again, the world will experience the judgment of Antichrist. So the king of Revelation 6:2 is not Christ, but the embodiment of the spirit of antichrist, the Beast of the book of Revelation. He is also the Willful King of the prophet Daniel (11:36), and the man of sin, the son of perdition of the Apostle Paul (2 Thess. 2:3).  He has many names in the Bible, but he is better known as the Antichrist, the antithesis of God and His anointed King, Jesus.

Since the Antichrist Beast is released upon the Earth with the breaking of the 1st seal, I think we can reasonably conclude that the seal has not yet been broken. The person of the Antichrist is not yet active on the Earth at this time, however, the spirit of antichrist is. 

A few prophecy teachers today are declaring that the 1st seal has been broken, and they offer their arguments and proofs to substantiate their claims. But, I think if we forget the arguments and opinions, and stick with the biblical text, we can see that the seal is still intact at this point in time. The individual who is the Antichrist is not yet revealed. He is still imprisoned in Tartarus (see Rev. 9:11, and my book, Alien Antichrist).

What we are seeing in the world today is the increasing power of the spirit of antichrist.

At one time the United States was one of the most Christian nations on the face of the Earth. But since the 1960’s we have seen the increasing erosion of the Judeo-Christian standard and ethic that were the founding principles of America. Biblical Christianity is now seen by those in positions of power, such as the media and the courts, as an enemy of the state, and Bible Christians are seen as a threat to freedom and progress. This is why it is so important for those opposed to the Bible to remove displays of the Ten Commandments, public displays of faith and prayer, and other reminders of the Christian faith.

Every religion and voice in the United States is allowed except the Bible and the Christian voice; you can also see this around the world, especially in countries dominated by Islam and various other religions that deny the unique position of Jesus Christ. Think about it: why is the name of every god on Earth allowed, but at the mention of the name of Jesus Christ, the hue and cry of atheists and others is deafening, and absolutely stunning.

This is evidence that the spirit of antichrist is gaining more power and influence; and this trend will continue as we move closer to prophetic fulfillment.

No, the 1st seal hasn’t been broken yet, but we may be closer than any of us can realize. Expect the spirit of Antichrist to gain more power and momentum, and also anticipate the power and influence of deception to increase at a very rapid rate.

As Christians we do have hope, and of course our hope is found in our relationship with Jesus. The Bible instructs us to remain steadfast and continue in our faith:

2 Timothy 3:12-15

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But  evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
