COMING JUDGMENT
« on: December 12, 2011, 08:02:31 PM »
This paper sets forth a clear picture of the essentials of coming judgment, and should be a help to many.  It surely appears to some of us that the end is fast approaching. One may write me personally if they wish further info. on this subject.

- Seriousseeker
oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooo

AN  OUTLINE  OF  GOD'S  COMING  JUDGMENT

   Prophecy was given at different times in different ways to meet different needs, so these references cannot be shown here in scriptural sequence, but seem to be in the approximate order in which they occur prophetically.  Other verses might be given, but these will suffice to show the general order of important events in God's coming judgment:     - R. L. DeWitt, rev. 7/95

Latter Days
*  Near the end of the present church age many will not endure sound doctrine (II Tim.4:3-4).
*  Pleasure seekers and false worshippers will abound as this age of God's grace approaches the end (II Tim.3:1-5).
*  Scoffers and irreverent men will be heard more and more (II Pet.3:3-4).
*  Some professors of Christianity will give it up and give heed to doctrines of devils (I Tim.4:1).
*  The divine hope for real believers has always been the crucified Christ raised and ascended, then believers caught-up to be with Him before judgment falls on the world (I Cor.15:12-58;  Matt.24:37-39; Rev.22:20).

The Translation
*  The "day of Christ" will begin with the sudden calling-up of His redeemed people to "ever be with the Lord" (often termed, the rapture or translation of the church ---I Thess.4:16-18).
*  The Judgment Seat of Christ above is for rewards for "born again" believers only (John 3:3;  Rom.14:10), then shall follow the marriage Supper (Rev.19:9).
*   After the translation of the church, this door of grace shall be shut to people of the world (John 10:9; Luke 13:23-27).

The Tribulation
*  Between the translation and the second appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ, there shall be a seven year tribulation period known as Daniel's seventieth week (see Dan.9:24-27; II Thess. 2:1-12).
*  A ten-nation kingdom will rise out of the old Roman Empire (possibly the present European Common Market), and the Beast (great political leader) will come forth out of them (Dan.7:23-25; Rev.13:1-3).
*  In fear of her enemies Israel will make a covenant with the Beast for peace, religious liberty, and safety seven years (Isa.28:15; Dan.9:27).
*  Israel will accumulate wealth, re-build the temple, and establish her religion for a time (Dan.9:25-26; Dan.12:11).
*  The apostate church (unified world religion---ecclesiastical Babylon---mother and her harlots) will exercise influence over the Beast for a time, then he will overthrow her (Rev.17).
*  The Beast will break his covenant with Israel in the very middle of "the week"---the seven years (Isa.28:18; Dan.9:27).
*  Satan shall be cast down onto the earth in the middle of the seven years (Rev.12:7-17).
*  A king (the False Prophet and Anti-Christ, also called the Second Beast) will rise in Israel, and come forth by Satan's power doing great wonders, give the mark of the Beast (666), and require all men to worship him (Dan. 11:36-39; Rev.13; Rev.14:9-11).
*  The image of the Beast will be set up in Israel's holy place and great tribulation shall fall on Israel (Dan.12:11; Matt.24:15-21).
*  There shall be 144,000 people of the tribes of Israel sealed by God (the preservation of Israel), and "two witnesses" shall preach the kingdom gospel, so that "a great multitude" who have never known and rejected the Savior God, shall be saved, though they face martyrdom (Matt. 24:14; Rev.7; Rev.11:3-12; Rev.20:4).
*  God shall send plagues on the earth to every one that has not the seal of God in his forehead;  but even so, those that do not die will not repent (Rev.8,9,16).
*  The King of the South (presumably Egypt) will push at Israel (likely for personal gain), and the King of the North (historically the Assyrian---presumably Syria or Turkey with her allies) will then attack, driving through Israel and on south to defeat Egypt, and then unite loyal Arab countries against Israel (Dan.11:40-43; Psa.83).
*  The second appearing of Christ (the "day of the Lord") shall come suddenly as a "thief in the night", and He shall meet the Beast coming forth (presumably to help the Anti-Christ in Israel) and armies from the East (likely the Moslems or China), and He shall destroy them, casting the Beast and False Prophet alive into the Lake of Fire (I Thess.5:2; Rev.19:11-21).
*  The King of the North, hearing that Israel's God is fighting for them, will go forth from his Egyptian conquest in great fury and shall be destroyed (Dan.11:44-45).
*  Magog (presumably Russia) with all her allies, hearing the over-powering Beast is gone, will move against Israel at Armageddon and shall be destroyed, save the sixth part (Ezek.38 & 39;  Rev.6:16).
*  Satan shall be chained and locked in the abyss (bottomless pit) for a thousand years (Rev.20:1-3).

The Thousand Years
*  The Lord Jesus Christ, having come down with His redeemed people, shall reign a thousand years (often termed, the millennium) where all is at peace and all men shall submit to Him (Isa.4:2-4; Isa.11:6-9; Isa.32:1; Matt.24:29-31; Matt.25:31-46; Rev.1:7; Rev.20:6).  
*  At the close of the thousand years Satan shall be loosed on the earth for a little time (the final testing of man), and he will gather the nations together against the Lord, and God shall devour them with fire (Rev.20:7-9).
*  Satan shall be cast into the Lake of Fire to remain forever (Rev.20:10).

The Last Judgment
*  The "day of God" will begin with fire from heaven so as to melt the elements, purging the earth (II Pet.3:12).
*  The Judgment of the Great White Throne shall be set to manifest God's holiness and righteousness, and pronounce sentence of Hell (the Lake of Fire) on all people whose names are not found written in the Lamb's Book of Life (Rev.20:11-15).
*  The judgment of Hell shall fall on people who died without the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, and have been held in Hades until that day (Luke 16:19-31; Rev.20:13-14).

Eternity
*  God shall form a new heaven and a new earth for both His heavenly people (the bride), and His earthly people (Israel) to dwell in forever (II Pet.3:13; Rev.21:1-5; Rev.22:1-5).

  Now, dear reader, would you be in the "translation" if Christ called His church home today?  It could be today, for all things are now ready.  Judgment is surely coming.  Have you received the Lord Jesus Christ as your own Savior?  Read I John 5:11-12.

One will hear teaching and diverse ministry along our pathway from many sources.  One should always test it by the Word of God (see John 5:39; Acts 17:11; II Tim.2:15; II Tim.3:16; Titus 1:9).  Whether it is profitable often depends, too, on our state of soul.  This paper is prepared with much care and prayer to be a help and honor the Lord.  Comments and questions are welcome.  - RLD: from BibleCounsel.homestead.com

Referring to the end times, Jesus said that "many wil be deceived".
It is sad that SO MANY people have already been deceived by Satan.

There will NOT be a Pre-Trib Rapture.

Maybe, but Paul said we which are ALIVE and remain shall be caught up together with them of the dead.

So that proves that many will not die via antichrist, whether that means pre great trib or mid great trib or post great trib.

 and the King of the North (historically the Assyrian---presumably Syria or Turkey with her allies) will then attack,..

ANSWER:

The key to understand these endtimeprophecies is to understand
who is the endtime ASSYRIANS or their leader the ASSYRIAN ?

The ASSYRIAN is the endtime Antichrist.

Isa.10,5

"O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation..".

The assyrian is God rod against the nation of Israel. He will punish Gods People (Israel) in the endtime.
After the Assyrian has fulfilled Gods plan,he will be punished.

Isa.30,31
 "For through the VOICE OF THE LORD shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod.

The assyrian will be destroyed when Messiah return  as also written in 2 Tess.

" And then shall that Wicked  (assyrian)be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming".

 Mica 5

"And this man shall be the peace, when the ASSYRIAN  shall come into our land: and when he shall TREAD IN OUR PALACES"

Daniel 11,31 also talks about this assyrian-King of Nord that he will pollute the temple.

"And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall POLLUTE THE SANCTUARY of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
[32] And such as do wickedly against the covenant "

Its this act Yeshua talks about in Matthew 24 -  "the abomination of desolation"

Jacobs trouble or the nation of Israels trouble will come when this assyrian beat them.

"Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, BE NOT AFRAID OF THE ASSYRIAN, he shall smite thee with a rod" Isaiah 10

If you compare the Scripture you will see that thisa assyrian is the exact same person av GOG or the king of Babylon.

Isaiah 14

"That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased"

Ninive was the capital of Assyria.
In revelation you have this same picture.

Babylon the great city.

Isaiah 47

Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.
[2] Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.
[3] Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen....

...And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.
[8] Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me;...."

This great nation,the queen will fall because of her adominations.

Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
[3] For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the MERCHANTS OF THE EARTH ARE WAXED RICH through the abundance of her delicacies.
[4] And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
[5] For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
[6] Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
[7] How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I SIT AS A QUEEN, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
[8] Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
[9] And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,"

Before she is destroyed God ask his chosen people to leave this area. If they dont they will have the same experience as in Sodom and Gomorra.

Jeremiah 50 says:

"How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
[24] I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD.
[25] The LORD hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans.
[26] Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left.
[27] Slay all her bullocks; let them go down to the slaughter: woe unto them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation.
[28] The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, the vengeance of his temple.
[29] Call together the archers against Babylon: all ye that bend the bow, camp against it round about; let none thereof escape: recompense her according to her work; according to all that she hath done, do unto her.

I thought you said Bush was the antichrist.

Even your own theory proves that this is not the case.

You must wait until the next election to see - end of 2012.

If BUSH is this number 8 as I think, the events will unfold  the next year.

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
[11] And the east that was, and is not, even HE IS TEH EIGHT, and is OF THE SEVEN, and goeth into perdition"  "Revelation 17

Seriousseeker,

Please address this one point.

In your very beginning, you stated,

"Near the end of the present church age many will not endure sound doctrine (II Tim.4:3-4)."

Let me quote 2 Timothy 4:3-4...

2 Timothy 4:3-4 - 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;  
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
 

Please notice that it says nothing of your "present CHURCH age."

In fact, the same Apostle Paul tells us that the CHURCH AGE is without end and does not have an expiration, as follows:

Eph 3:21 (KJV) - Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.  

Eph 3:21 (ESV) -  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.  

Eph 3:21 (ASV) - unto him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus unto all generations for ever and ever. Amen.

Eph 3:21 (WEBSTER) - To him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.


Your foundation is faulty.  You have springboarded from an assumed and false foundation.

It is not the church age that comes to an end.
It is the old covenant age of Judaism that comes to an end.

That age ended almost 2,000 years ago.
What was soon to them can not possibly be soon to us.

And along this vein, why is it that MOST Christians believe that in the beginning MINUTES of the church at Pentecost they also believe it was the LAST DAYS fulfillment of Joel 2:28.

If only you folks could realize that it was not the church which Christ came to establish that would end, but that it was the old covenant physical temple system (Judaism) that was coming to an end.

We (Christians) are the new living temples in Christ!!!

There will NOT be a Pre-Trib Rapture.

ANSWER:

Thats true.
ITS A BIG LIE.

The only rapture is that which occur when Messiah comes.


And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints (ANGELS),
[15] To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

The same event:

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:
[30] 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.
[31] 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.

The same event:

For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
[3] Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
[4] And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
[5] And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints (ANGELS) with thee.
[6] And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
[7] But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
[8] And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in

There are several things I will address here, Edward, then leave the matter between you and God. 
1) I am not the judge of anyone;  and this matter is not essential truth, though I believe it is very true;  2)  I don't know what qualifies you as a Teacher, but I am not only showing in the paper I posted what esteemed Bible scholars down through history have shown, and that which has been upheld by others quite informed, but I have studied it and prayed and also believe it is true as expressed;  3) You can write to Bible Truth Publishers in Addison, IL if you should be truly interested in finding the truth of this by those who have more understanding than either of us;  4) I will say without intending any offense, that you are scrambling the Word of God, rather than "rightly dividing the Word of Truth" as God enjoins us;  5) Within your statement below I will add some thoughts you might pray about. 


Seriousseeker, 
Please address this one point.  In your very beginning, you stated,
"Near the end of the present church age many will not endure sound doctrine (II Tim.4:3-4)."

Let me quote 2 Timothy 4:3-4...

2 Timothy 4:3-4 - 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;  
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
 

Please notice that it says nothing of your "present CHURCH age." 
First I should say it is not my "church age", but God's, since this present age  which the Lord Jesus set forth, is indeed all about the church --the bride of Christ.  All studies of the church show it is one of the many ages (or dispensations) that God has provided to test man and prove God's assertions in Romans 3 about our ruin, etc.

In fact, the same Apostle Paul tells us that the CHURCH AGE is without end and does not have an expiration, as follows:  Eph 3:21 (KJV) - Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.   Eph 3:21 (ESV) -  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.  Eph 3:21 (ASV) - unto him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus unto all generations for ever and ever. Amen.
Eph 3:21 (WEBSTER) - To him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.


Your foundation is faulty.  You have springboarded from an assumed and false foundation.
No, my foundation is scriptural.  I did not say the church would end, but the CHURCH AGE.  You are misapplying the Word of God.  You need to see what the church is --not an extension of Israel's religion, but a  New Testament in Christ.  When the Lord established the church in Acts 2 and set it forth in the Epistles it was until the Lord returns to claim His bride --the church.  It will be translated up to Himself in Heaven;  then the wrath of God will fall on this world (not on the bride) for seven years, before the Lord returns with His bride to reign for 1,000 years (the Millenium).  I don't have time to give a whole Bible lesson to you here, but you can find the truth of this if you look to sound Bible scholars.

It is not the church age that comes to an end.
It is the old covenant age of Judaism that comes to an end.

That age ended almost 2,000 years ago.
What was soon to them can not possibly be soon to us.

And along this vein, why is it that MOST Christians believe that in the beginning MINUTES of the church at Pentecost they also believe it was the LAST DAYS fulfillment of Joel 2:28.

If only you folks could realize that it was not the church which Christ came to establish that would end, but that it was the old covenant physical temple system (Judaism) that was coming to an end.
Maybe this is something we can agree on --that when the church was established it shall continue, but not on earth;  and the Old Testament covenant was ended at the cross --including the Israelite religion and priesthood.  In Hebrews we can see the Lord promises a New Covenant for Israel when He returns, and Israel will again be restored as God's earthly people, while the church as the Bride will be a heavenly people with Christ forever.
We (Christians) are the new living temples in Christ!!!

You are correct seriousseeker .... don't give the vipers of Hyper-preterism an inch

Those who are deceived on this matter are the preterists and the post-tribulation crowd

The preterist shoves it all into the past [these say it has already happened] and the posties push it all forward to one day at the end of the tribulation period [these say it will all happen on one day .... the entire tribulation and the Lord's return]

Your original post and following comments are very good ..... precise, accurate, and biblical

The preterists and the posties do nothing but scream against the Lord's intents

This behavior is to be expected in these last days .... the devil is anxious

Hello Linker.  You sound like an honest and Godly man, with good discernment.

As I noted in my comments, this is not essential truth, so I can easily leave it alone.  The preterists and posties may still be arguing this among themselves after the church is translated above (unless they happen to be "born again", which I hope they are). In any case we will know the truth of it one day.

My concern about such studies, is that the real believers will be informed and honor God, and enjoy the hope He has set before us.   I hope many will ignore the arguments asserted, and re-read the original post at the beginning here for sound ministry.  Look up always!

This the true believer in Jesus Christ does consistently .... no doubt

Serious: "Magog (presumably Russia) with all her allies, hearing the over-powering Beast is gone, will move against Israel at Armageddon and shall be destroyed, save the sixth part (Ezek.38 & 39;  Rev.6:16).
*  Satan shall be chained and locked in the abyss (bottomless pit) for a thousand years (Rev.20:1-3)."

Serious, you and Linker "keep looking up" and you both are going to walk into the abyss.
By the way Serious....Linker does not believe that "Russia is Magog."
Linker has another theory....you might ask him about it...
Surely, both you "Spirit filled" Millennialist can work out Jesus' return.

OK...after the Lord destroys Russia at Armageddon the church will be "raptured out" this period of
anticipated peace shall prevail. The "wicked dead" in their graves will cause no trouble for sure, and
Satan will be bound.

The gentle, four legged, wooly-backed lamb shall lie down with the vicious, blood-thirsty lion.
Now, there is peace! Wow! for 1000 years lambs and lions running together...sounds like a Disney cartoon.

But wait! The script goes on: Christ will reinstate "Judaism," Christianity will be for those already "in Christ' who
will take shovel in hand (Obamaism) and be the laborers for the returning Jews and rebuild the Temple
 in downtown Jerusalem.
The Jerusalem Jews are now contriving ways of bilking the Christians out of their
"green back dollars" and sending the least of them back to Paducah, Kentucky.

Jesus, now seated upon an earthly throne of 1000 years as decided to take the whole bunch back to heaven
(minus the Russians) and purify their minds to love and obey him...and they did, and lived happly ever after
The End....
