Daily Sacrifice - Man of Perdition

 

What about the teaching that Israel will build a temple and start sacrificing a Red Heifer just before Jesus comes back to establish His kingdom here on earth? Is this concept of a new temple and animal sacrifice for the end times prophesied in Daniel as many have been taught?

The fact is that many have been misled by ministers teaching what they learned in Ambassador College and never took it upon themselves to check out the facts on this issue. The question is do you want to know what they missed from scripture that shows they are in error? My comments will be in (      )  - (Notice in the first part of Daniel chapter 12 it records the description of the last days and the coming kingdom. It states….) "At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt."

(Notice it is the time of trouble that has never been since there was a nation and that many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake which happens just before Jesus comes to bring His kingdom so we have a timeline here. Also the trouble referred to here is what's known as Jacob's trouble which can be found in Jer 30:5-7 and states in part. ) "For thus says the LORD: 'We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask now, and see, whether a man is ever in labor with child? So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins like a woman in labor, and all faces turned pale? Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it."

( Now let’s continue.) “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase." ( Notice the fact that the book is to be shut TILL the TIME of the END. Very important to understand and to bring these statements to our day.)

( Notice in the next paragraph that Daniel states “that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time” This means 3 ½ years and is the same time the beast power will be ruling the earth as we read in Rev. 13 and is the same 42 mounts (31/2 years) the two witnesses will be preaching the coming kingdom and warning that the Christian religion is a pagan religion and people need to repent and come to the real Messiah.)

(Now it states.) “Then I, Daniel, looked; and there stood two others, one on this riverbank and the other on that riverbank. And one said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, "How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?" Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished. Although I heard, I did not understand. (The comment that{{the power of the holy people has been completely shattered}} can be tied in with Revelation chapter 13:7 that states… “It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.”

(Now we see in this next portion of Chapter 12 that none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the{{ abomination of desolation}} is set up.” ( Now brethren this abomination of desolation is the very warning by Jesus Himself recorded in Matt. 24:15 when He referred to the 'abomination of desolation,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" The 'abomination of desolation Jesus spoke of is also the man of perdition referred to in II Thess. chapter two and is very important to understand the connection. )

(Now let’s continue ) “Then I said, "My lord, what shall be the end of these things?" And he said, "Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand. And from the time that{{ the daily sacrifice is taken away,}} and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. "Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. "But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days."  Dan 12:1-13

This prophecy in Dan 12 is about the end of the age so therefore the covenant referred to in Daniel is the New Covenant and the daily sacrifice is Jesus who became our daily sacrifice which compares to II Thes. chapter two because we find that they both will be taken out of the way.

The reason many have missed this is because they believed a man’s teachings and that man was very involved with Israel and he believed a new Temple would have to be built for there to be a sacrifice to be taken away however he did not understand that the prophecy was for the end time but because it was written in the Old Testament he made a bad assumption concerning the daily sacrifice. As you see from this study the prophecy clearly states TILL the TIME of the END and that Jesus referred to this prophecy as a future prophecy and that II Thess. chapter two reveals that He who restrains shall be taken away which is Jesus the Messiah.

Just how will true Christians know who the man of perdition is when he comes to rule the world?
Yes the bible warns that many will be deceived and not understand who he is; so what are we to look for?

Please understand I'm not stating this as Gospel or God breathed but to give a rounded view of what we need to understand about the man of perdition that is described in Revelation 13. Remember it is recorded that the whole world will wander after him except those written in the book of life. The question is why? The answer is because he will make millions feel safe from the many threats around the world and many who thought they would never have much more than they do will be able to become successful beyond their dreams. He will cause the many powerful leaders around the world to not only love him but fear him as well. This man that is coming will cause peace to come around the world in a way that no one ever thought possible.

The main thing the man of perdition will hunger for is POWER and will desire the people to Reverence him. The thing that will cause him to go to war is those that will not. It is possible that because many will love and reverence Jesus over him and that my friend will not be acceptable to a person that wants not only power but the admiration from the people so it would not be a stretch to say he very well may put in prison and destroy anyone that will not denounce Jesus the Messiah over him. Watch for this in the near future.

It is also very possible he will be very smooth and talk with a golden tongue speaking what people want to hear because they are hungry for the lust of the flesh. He will not look evil and he will have a great smile and say things that sound very good for every person. His plans for us will seem very much like loving our fellow man as he reaches down to help the down trodden. He will want to make sure that the rich don’t bully the poor so he will be viewed as someone like Robin Hood. Yes the man Jesus warned His called out ones to beware of will come as a helper of all mankind who will solve many world problems.

Yes the man of perdition will be all things to all people so he may win the hearts of the young and the minds of those that are deceived by his tactics. The man of perdition will want to make peace between Christians, Muslims and Jews so all religions can come together with one mind. He will use our wealth to help others around the world become more wealthy and this act will take your freedom because as I have stated in other writings there can't be any dictators nor can there be a free Nation where the people have the kind of freedoms America has enjoyed.

Keep a very close eye on the next few years brethren because the Apostasy in the Churches and the cooperation of the many leaders around the world in unison with America will set the stage for something very big and very dangerous for true Christians that want to follow the true Messiah. The big question is why did Jesus state that if anyone denied Him He would deny them before the Holy Father? This question is the most important point for all that lives in the end times and who wants to be in the Kingdom of God to understand.

How can true called out children of the Creator know who the man of perdition is? Because he will be deceptive in all his ways as is his master… The father of lies.

BEWARE OF THE MAN OF PERDITION!!!
