Total devastation before the Messianic age

Some preaches say there will be no dooms day before the second coming of Jesus, but a rapture. They skip warnings about the rule of anti-Christ.  They claim we wont be there.

You still have a choise. Surrender to Jesus the Messiah if you want to live.

The apocalyptic events that will bring back the Messiah, are going to bring total destruction on Earth. That is why a new Earth, and even a new Heaven is needed.

For people who believe in the Pre-tribulation rapture, this kind of total devastation will come as a surprise. For them, martyrdom in the coming days are almost unthinkable. Their pastors has simply not prepared them for the truth about the end and the age.

The best pre-Messianic-rule prophecy, about the coming total devastation prior to the second coming, is found in Isaiah 24.

It is just like the pre-tribulation rapture preachers have forgotten this chapter. It is very convenient to say that the Church shall be on the wedding banquet in Heaven when the Anti-Christ rules and total devastation strikes the Earth. Their pastors tells them, that when the horrors are over, the Church will return to Earth and rule in the Messianic age.

The true Prophet says the opposite. We will be here when the horrors strikes, and we will rejoice and praise Him. Walking inside the Great Tribulation.

Isaiah 24
The LORD’s Devastation of the Earth
 1 See, the LORD is going to lay waste the earth
   and devastate it;
he will ruin its face
   and scatter its inhabitants—
2 it will be the same
   for priest as for people,
   for the master as for his servant,
   for the mistress as for her servant,
   for seller as for buyer,
   for borrower as for lender,
   for debtor as for creditor.
3 The earth will be completely laid waste
   and totally plundered. The LORD has spoken this word.

 Isaiah writes:

 2 it will be the same
   for priest as for people.

It is strange that all the “priests” will be left behind, and the “Church” taken to Heaven.

  14 They raise their voices, they shout for joy;  from the west they acclaim the LORD’s majesty.

 16 From the ends of the earth we hear singing: 
“Glory to the Righteous One.”

Who is going to sing like this, if the “Church”is taken away?

The people on the Earth will perish, and experience the first death. Few will survive the horrors.

Isaiah writes that only a few will survive. The rest will burn.

 6 Therefore a curse consumes the earth; 
its people must bear their guilt. 
Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.

In the darkest hours of mankind, the Messiah will return to save those who are waiting for Him.

Since there are few survivors, most likely only believers, Jews and gentiles who obeyed the Messiah. No doubt that Paul got the revelation:

“Every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess, that Jesus the Messiah is Lord.

Not all the believers will survive the terror. They will face martyrdom, in the biggest blood bath on the face of the Earth ever.  The children of the Anti-Christ will kill and slaughter believers, from wherever they can be rounded up and detained. Than they will be bunt alive.

But the days of Great Tribulation have been shortened for the sake of the elect. If not, no one would have been able to survive.

But behold. The second death will have no power over those who faced martyrdom. Those who have been beheaded, will rise and reign with the Messiah for a thousand years. They washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb, and came out of the Great Tribulation.

 Revelation 7:14
I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

The rest of mankind who face the first death, will raise from the dust and face eternal condemnation. They will face the second death, from where there is no exit, no escape.

 Daniel 12:2
Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.

 1 Thessalonians 4:16
16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

Paul saw dooms day. The Apostle John also saw the coming destruction. He was told about the second death. The lake of fire.

 Revelation 20:6

 Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.

 Revelation 20:14

 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.

 Revelation 21:8

 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

In the Messianic age there will be peace for 1.000 years. Because all the troublemakers faced the first death, when God’s wrath stroke the Earth. But they will all rise. The World will be ruled with an iron rod, by the Messiah ruling from Jerusalem, a new city that is coming down from Heaven. Now, the final separation of the sheep and the goats will take place.

Despite peace, there will come a final rebellion. Satan will be let loose from captivity, and deceive souls all over again.

But at the very and of his games, He and all who were deceived by him will spend eternity in the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:15
Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Confused American TV-preachers claims Jesus went to Hell

Benny Hinn, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland and Andrew Wommack have one thing in common. They preach that «Jesus died spiritually», and went to Hell. From there, their copy-cat Jesus will never be able to escape.

The mother of all error. A Jesus that was sent to Hell.
Be aware of preachers who claims Jesus went to Hell, claiming this truth to be read out of their King James Bible.

Many Word of Faith preachers, and thousands of Pastors in Charismatic Churches spread lies about Jesus of Nazareth. They have Spiritual fathers that teach the «Jesus died Spiritually (JDS) theology». This gospel comes from the same source as the «Replacement Theology».

This is serious stuff. Lets take a deep look into this matter:

This teaching is basically a result of an error in Biblical Christianity, that has its origin in a faulty translation of one word in the King James version. Its the Hebrew word «Sheol» . In the 1611 A.D version of the King James Bible the two Hebrew words Sheol and Ghenna have been mixed up. The British translators even used the Greek pagan word «Hades» to explain Hell. The result is an English faulty understanding of the true meaning of the lake of fire. Hell, where the wicked will spend their eternity. A place no one can escape from.

Here is one example of this error in King James version of the Bible:

2. Sam 22: 4-7. (King James)

I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid; The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me; In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.

NIV correctly translate Sheol as grave: «the sorrows of grave compassed me about»:

Another example:

Psalm 16:10
For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. (King James)

The soul of the Holy One is not going to Hell.His soul will not even rest in Sheol. (the grave).

A third example:

Jonah 2:2
And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice. (King James).

Jonah was surely not in Hell. He speaks from his possible tragic «grave» Sheol, in the belly of the Fish. Also I would have cried from such an close to «impossible» tomb of silence.

An translation error from Hebrew and Greek into English:

Anglicans, who do not share a concept of «hades» with the Eastern Orthodox, have traditionally translated «sheol» (and «hades») as «hell» (for example in the King James Version). However, to avoid confusion of what are separate concepts in the Bible, modern English versions of the Bible tend either to translated the word sheol or to use an alternative term such as the «grave» (e.g. the NIV). Roman Catholics generally translate «sheol» as «death».

The Gideon Bible, the New King James and the NIV-versions have all corrected the faulty original English translation in the King James version. This error in the King James version has resulted in many misunderstandings about what the Spirit of Jesus did in the three days his body was in the tomb of silence.

What is the Hebrew meaning of Sheol?

From the Jewish encyclopedia:

Sheol is underneath the earth. Hence it is known also as «Dumah», the abode of silence. Return from Sheol is not expected (II Sam. xii. 23; Job vii. 9, 10; x. 21; xiv. 7 et seq.; xvi. 22; Ecclus. [Sirach]. Eccl. xii. 5). It is “dust” (Ps. xxx. 10; hence in the Shemoneh ‘Esreh, in benediction No. ii., the dead are described as “sleepers in the dust”).

God’s rulership over it is recognized (Amos ix. 2; Hos. xiii. 14; Deut. xxxii. 22; I Sam. ii. 6 [Isa. vii. 11?]; Prov. xv. 11).

What is the Greek meaning of the pagan word Hades?

The Greek God (ruler) of the underworld is called Hades. God of the Bible has prepared a place for Him and his dark angles at the end of time. That is in Hell, the lake of fire. Hades is not hell.

What is the correct Hebrew word for Hell?

From the Jewish Encyclopedia:

The place where children were sacrificed to the god Moloch was originally in the «valley of the son of Hinnom» to the south of Jerusalem (Josh. xv. 8, passim; II Kings xxiii. 10; Jer. ii. 23; vii. 31-32; xix. 6, 13-14). For this reason the valley was deemed to be accursed, and «Gehenna» therefore soon became a figurative equivalent for «hell». Hell, like paradise, was created by God (Soṭah 22a); according to Gen. R. ix. 9, the words «very good» in Gen. i. 31 refer to hell; hence the latter must have been created on the sixth day. Yet opinions on this point vary. According to some sources, it was created on the second day; according to others, even before the world, only its fire being created on the second day (Gen. R. iv., end; Pes. 54a). The «fiery furnace» that Abraham saw (Gen. xv. 17, Hebr.) was Gehenna (Mek. xx. 18b, 71b; comp. Enoch, xcviii. 3, ciii. 8; Matt. xiii. 42, 50; ‘Er. 19a, where the «fiery furnace» is also identified with the gate of Gehenna).


The deceptive JDS (Jesus died Spiritiualy) teachings (gnostisism) that is preached by men like Benny Hinn and Kenneth Copeland, is often defended by a mixed up understanding of Gehenna, Hades and Sheol as Hell, found in the King James version.

The Spirit of Jesus did not «die», its an eternal Spirit. The Spirit of Jesus did not enter into Hell. While His body was in the tomb of silence, the Spirit of Jesus preached to the spirits in prison, who had been taken captive by the Kingdom of darkness. That kingdom is a present Kingdom. Hell is to the very contrary, prepared for Satan and his dark angels at the end of time.. And the «ruler» of the Kingdom of darkness is not in Hell, not yet.

1.Peter 3.18-19:
He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison. (NIV)

Also in King James this becomes very clear in this verse:

«Being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison» (King James)

From where did Jesus rise after three days?

Jesus did not rise from Hell. He rose from the grave, from Sheol. Jesus rose from the tomb of silence. Also our body, if we are not raptured before our body ends up in «a grave» or the belly of a fish, like Jonah. Our soul will be resurrected, and we will enter into our new heavenly bodies.

From where will people rise on the last day of Judgment?

Since the body of Jesus was in the grave, (Sheol) for three days, it might be the body of people who are in their, first, second or third day in Sheol who are going to be raised from the graves on the final day of Judgment. Thats going to be an awesome display of the Power of God. Even the sea shall give up its latest dead bodies on that day.

Will anybody be raised from Hell on the last day of Judgment?

Word of Faith teacher Benny Hinn
Word of Faith teacher Benny Hinn

The Rich man who was sent to Hell (Gehenna) is not going to be raised. Abraham confirmed that there is no way, anybody will be able to escape that place of horror.

What about the people who came out of the tombs in Jerusalem, the day Jesus died on the cross? From where did they come?

The people who came out of the tombs of the graves in Jerusalem (Matthew 27:52) and appeared in the city, all came from Sheol. Another example is Lazarus, who Jesus raised from Sheol on the fourth day. In John 11:39, Martha warned Jesus about the bad odor, expected after four days in Sheol, also called the dust of the Earth. If the soul of Lazarus had departed for Heaven, his flesh in Sheol would literally have returned to dust. Thats what is expected to happen with all flesh in Sheol. Jesus called Lazarus back in flesh and spirit from Sheol, not from Heaven or Hell (Gehenna).

Was Jesus ever tortured by Satan in Hell?

Kenneth Copeland is in a league of his own. He once preached that «Jesus went to Hell to be tortured by Satan». Thats another gnostic «Jesus» from a gnostic gospel. Why? Because Satan has not even been in Hell, not yet. He and his dark angels roams around feeding the children they have deceive with more deceptions. But Satan surely will end up in Hell, the day Jesus of the Bible will throw Him into the lake of fire.

Where did the Spirit of Jesus go in the three days He spent in the grave?

Word of Faith teacher Andrew Wommack

When Jesus was crucified, Jesus communicated with His Father:

Luke 23:46
Jesus called out with a loud voice, «Father, into your hands I commit my spirit»
When he had said this, he breathed his last.

If you think the Father of Jesus was Lucifer, who now tortured him in Hell for some time, than sent him back to Earth to deceive us, you have been deceived by the father of all lies.

This error in the Charismatic Churches, has lead this movement into several other errors and occult and gnostic practices. The latest is «soaking».

God is good, and will gives us all we need. And all true Christians are cheerful givers. But Jesus is not a fleshy God, that will make you a slave of your own fleshy prayers and expectations. Many American TV-preachers are false apostles of «Jesus- the-ATM-machine». They preach and teach the false «prosperity gospel». They try to deceive us into believing that a man can demand anything from God, and even expect monetary returns like brokers promises us from the Stock Exchange. The brokers never return their commission, when their promises fails.

Word of Faith teacher Joyce Meyer
Word of Faith teacher Joyce Meyer

Hey, stop, you might say: «These men and women walking in an «anointing» of signs and miracles. How can you say that their teachings are faulty?

Lets see what Jesus said:

Mathew 24:4-5:

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ, and will deceive many».

In whose name would these deceivers come?

Matthew 24:24
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.

Word of Faith teacher Kenneth Copeland
Word of Faith teacher Kenneth Copeland

Also Satan has the power to perform signs and miracles. Friendship with his false-Messiah`s will not help you on your final day of Judgment.

The Jewish Apostle Paul also warns us against false teachers who will come in the name of Jesus:

2 Corinthians 11:4
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.

Therefore: Choose wisely your Bible teacher, brother or pastor.

Bible studies # 31: Walking in the footsteps of Jesus the Messiah

Do you realize that your sins crucified Jesus, and that you deserved to be the one slaughtered on that cross in Jerusalem? Good. You have understood who you are, and what the only living God has done for you.

Many who claim they know the Messiah is not willing to follow Him, to be crucified to the desires of this world.

«How many of us believers are going out and doing exactly what Jesus did for others?»

Jesus told us in plain words that performing miracles and wonders in His name, will not give anyone the «ticket» to the Kingdom of Heaven. You have to do the will of the Father.

Matthew 7:21-23

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Lets take a look on some examples of what separates a true follower of the risen Messiah Jesus from hypocrites and carnal «Christians»


Matthew 6:15
But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Jesus paid for our sins when we were all sinners. So we are called to forgive those who sin against us, with out setting up conditions. Do not say: «I forgive, and I forget». That is not forgiveness. Jesus will never forgive you, and than forget you. True forgiveness gives us a spirit of healing and reconciliation.


Matthew 25:35

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.

True Christians share what they have, and always desire to bless others. They walk the talk. Do not desire and promote blessings coming your way from others. Do never say that poverty is a curse, and bring a curse on your own head.


Luke: 6:38:

Give, and it will be given to you.

True Christians give everything they have to Jesus. They renounce this World as evil. and enjoy blessings in the Holy Ghost. Many people only give him a «tenth», or parts of what they have. They keep for them selves in abundance, an enjoy their life in the flesh. Storing up riches on Earth.


Matthew 28:19-20

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

True followers of Jesus share their faith with others. They always tell the truth about Him, Regardless of the cost of doing so. When you make a mistake, be quick to ask Jesus for mercy. His love is endless for those who fear Him. Do not compromise and corrupt your self, by justifying sin. Do not be ruled by fear of men and society.


Genesis 17: 17-19

Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?” And Abraham said to God, “If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!”

Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.

If you ever met a Jew, do not harm him. The Messiah who scattered Israel, has gathered them again. Do not deny the Jewish people their birth right to return to, live and build in the promised land, Eretz Israel.


Luke 10:3:

Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.

True followers will go to the next village. They will look for a man of peace. We have to follow Him, The Messiah. Do not stay put in your house and watch TV day and night. Do not be of the opinion that simply going to a fellowship or a churches is what the Father requires, and that such attendance will save you.

Everyone wants healing and financial blessings. But were few people want to give up their fleshy desires, make a u-turn and follow Jesus the Messiah.

Since false Messiah`s has been granted the powers to perform miracles and wonders, this kind of manifestation is not always a proof that the Holy Spirit is present. But surely miracles and wonders will follow in your footsteps, when you do the Fathers will.

The only thing that Satan can not copy is true repentance, a fruit that follows those who preach Jesus crucified for our sins, and the only way to Heaven. There is no love outside of the truth. The truth is often painful. Worldly tears are crocodile tears of self pity. The guilt of the sin that crucified Jesus will produce godly tears. This is the only true signal from Heaven, that a person has been born from above.

Thats why John the Baptists said: «You brood of vipers. Show me fruit of repentance». They will follow a person who has been born again.

Catholic priests worship corpse of Saint Ubaldo

The corpse of St. Ubaldo is kept in St Ubaldo Basilica, a Franciscan Cloister in Gubbio in Italy.

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.
Roman Catholic priests venerate, adore and worship in front of a skeleton.

Do you still wounder how Roman Catholic Priests becomes deceased hypocrites, and rape young children?

This must be some of the most brilliant pictures, that expose Roman Catholic priests worship of corpses, skulls and bones.

What kind of spiritual force, can make a man stand an pray in front of corpses and skeletons?

It is a disgrace than any true Christian can brand the Vatican death cult, as a part of the Christian family. Such perverts as we can see on these pictures, prove that this priesthood breeds anti-Christs on the surface of the Earth.
