"Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to [CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS]: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time." (Daniel 7:23-25)

Changing the times and laws does NOT refer to the "change" of a Saturday Sabbath to a Sunday Sabbath; it is glaringly obvious that this (i.e., "change of laws") is part and parcel to what is now going on today (Pro-choice/Abortion, LGBTQ, etc.), and leading to the time of the end (v.25). It is perfectly fine for women to murder their unborn children, and it is perfectly fine to be a homosexual or a lesbian and engage in deviant practices which leads to deadly diseases as a consequence; but if you steal an item at a grocery store, you are liable to go to prison for committing this crime. Stealing is a sin, murder is a sin, but defiance to the Moral Laws of God, which Commands everyone NOT to PARTICIPATE in gross sexual conduct with someone of the opposite sex, and such is an abominable act; but to murder an unborn child is NOT considered heinous and immoral?. Do you see the hypocrisy in all of this? 

The Antichrist will OPPOSE God's Moral Laws in every way he deems appropriate; this is why he is referred to as the man of [SIN] or [LAWLESSNESS], and he is "death" personified, as he will lead many down the broad path to utter destruction and ruin: for he can ONLY SIN; i.e., "there is NO TRUTH in him" (cf. Jn. 8:44; 2 Thess. 2:3-4; Rev. 17:8). God and Christ is LIFE, and His Commandments are PURE and UNDEFILED; following Satan will only lead to the destruction of the soul in Hell and Eternal Damnation. Satanist Aleister Crowley’s motto was "do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the LAW." (i.e., you are free to choose to commit any evil act under the sun). The Bible says that we are to Love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind, and to love your neighbor as yourself are the two Greatest commandments, and if you can keep those two, then you can keep the rest.

"And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: [this do, and THOU SHALT LIVE.]" (Luke 10:27-28)

"But the same day that [LOT WENT OUT OF SODOM] it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even [THUS SHALL IT BE] in the day when the Son of man is revealed." (Luke 17:29-30) 

The Devil is a counterfeiter, but in the worst possible way; his commandments are to keep the Antichrist's first two "commandments": to worship him as God, and to do what you will; and if you can keep those two, then you can live your life FREE from any restraint of evil. The world will be as the days of lot in the time of our Lord's Return to Judge the world in Righteousness. Sodomy will be the norm, and men, women, and even children will engage in sexually perverse acts of Sodomy. All will not be well for them, and as the Lord said, they will say "peace and safety", and sudden destruction will come upon them (1 Thess. 5:3). It is no wonder why the entire deceived world will worship the Antichrist as God, because in that time of the end, the whole world will be filled with wickedness as the days of Noah and Lot. The Bible makes it very clear that the [restraining] power will be removed, who is the Holy Spirit; He will allow the wicked to go all out with their immoral lifestyles without any restraint of evil and wickedness, and they will be handed over to their reprobate minds.

"And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as [THE FACES OF MEN]. And they had hair as [THE HAIR OF WOMEN], and their teeth were as the teeth of lions." (Revelation 9:7-8)

"And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall [HE] regard the God of his fathers, [NOR THE DESIRE OF WOMEN], nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all." (Daniel 11:36-37)

These are creatures that are possessed by demonic spirits, but notice how their appearance have certain qualities of BOTH gender. Now this is NOT to say that the locusts are symbolic of homosexuals and lesbians, but they are a sign of just how perverse and distorted the world will be at that time, and [the natural order] of things which God has designed (e.g, "Husband and Wife") will be completely subverted (cf. Gen. 1:26-28; 2:24-25; Jer. 33:25-26; Mk. 10:6; Rom. 1:27; 1 Cor. 7:1-3). 

Men are not to fashion their hair like women (1 Cor. 11:14), because how often do we see bald women? and why is it that men are known to grow bald? Most men WILL eventually grow bald, but there are men who go to extreme measures to remove hair from other parts of their body and stitch it to the top of their heads. . . . really? Get over it, baldness is a masculine trait; just look at Mr. Clean! God has designed men and women by giving them the hormones designed to shape their physical features (i.e., "Testosterone and Estrogen").

"And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For [the mystery of iniquity DOTH ALREADY WORK] (i.e., the discerning Christian can see the increase of wickedness in today’s world): only he who now letteth will let, [UNTIL HE BE TAKEN OUT OF THE WAY]. 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] (Grk. energeian planes; lit., "an energy of deceit"), [THAT THEY SHOULD BELIVE A LIE]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but [HAD PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS] (i.e., Sodomy, Abortion, Lawlessness, etc.)" (2 Thessalonians 2:6-12)

These wicked men and women have a false sense of security and freedom, and they they have the "god-given" right to commit every act of fornication and sexual immorality according to their perverted lusts and carnal desires, and if it results in pregnancy, then just abort the baby, right? This is how SICK the world is in this present day; they have PLEASURE in UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. GOD HIMSELF will send them STRONG DELUSION because they refuse to repent of their immorality. Those who willfully and defiantly reject the Gospel Message and its warnings against such abominable acts will have no more Sacrifice for their sins, and they will pay the due penalty when they stand before the Holy God of Scripture (cf. Matt. 12:31-32; Heb. 6:4-6; 10:26-27; Rev. 20:11-15).

"And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, 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. These are murmurers, complainers, [WALKING AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS]; and their mouth [SPEAKING GREAT SWELLING WORDS] (i.e., cursing those who stand for the Truth of Holy Scripture through their willful defiance to the Immutability of God’s Moral Laws; and utter contempt for those who oppose their Sodomy and perverse sexual acts), having men's persons in admiration because of advantage." (Jude 14-16)

In Closing:

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? [BE NOT DECEIVED] (Grk. me planasthe; present imperative): neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [effeminate] (Grk. malakos; "girly, delicate, or male prostitute"), nor [abusers of themselves with mankind] (Grk. arsenokoites; "the dominant male partner, or Sodomite"), Nor thieves, norcovetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

The city of Sodom was plagued with sexual perversity before its utter desctruction as a consequence of God's Burning Wrath towards the willfully defiant; these men and women were so sexually depraved that they even made an attempt to the rape angels who were sent to escort Lot out of this city awaiting destruction, and the Sodomites who were struck blind by them did not deter them from fulfilling their perverse lusts as they continued to grope their way in their state of darkness.  

"But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt." (Genesis 19:26) 

Lot's wife turned into a pillar of salt due to her unwillingness to forsake her sexually immoral lifestyle. Salt has been used a preservative for ages; this should serve as a contunual reminder of the consequences to those who remain determined to carry out their sexual perversity in spite of the direct Commands of the Moral Lawgiver. Sodomizers should take heed that wilfull neglect and defiance to God's Natural order of Creation will result in the Judgment of Almighty God if not repented of; for such detestable behavior warrants the due penalty of their sins, and the ramification are Eternal.

"[REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE]. Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it." (Luke 17:32-33)

"But Jesus said unto him, FOLLOW ME; and [let the dead bury their dead]." (Mattew 8:22)

It is never too late to turn from such wicked and deplorable behavior, and anyone can receve the Mercy and Forgiveness from God through His Son, Jesus Christ; nobody is "too" wicked that the Grace of God cannot abundantly pardon; but there does come a point in the life of every person where their stubborness to the warnings in Holy Scripture to turn from iniquity will result in the hardening of their hearts, and from that point, it will be too late. Our Lord came into this world to save even the most wretched of sinners, and there isn't a soul that has ever lived on this planet who did not deserve the Divine Wrath of Godl but Christ died for the ungodly (i.e., "all of us"), and if we render our hearts to Him, we receive His Mercy, Forgiveness, and Eternal Life. Those who continue in their rebellion, and take delight in their Sodomy and sexual immorality will not see the newness of life, but the Divine Retribution in Hell and the Eternal Lake of Fire.

"Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?" (Ezekiel 18:23)

"Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die? . . . " (Ezekiel 33:11)

God Bless!

"And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly would was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 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?] And there was given unto him [a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies]; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months." (Revelation 13:3-5)

The entire unbelieving world will rejoice after the Beast and cheer him on, and he will be their god, because he gives them "freedom" to take "pleasure" in their unrighteousness. The Beast will also kill the two witnesses, and this is one of the reasons why the wicked will worship him. Furthermore, the wicked world will glory in their shame, and they will take pride in the blasphemous words spoken by the Beast, who blasphemes and challenges the One True God.

"And men were scorched with great heat, and [blasphemed the name of God], which hath power over these plagues: and [they repented not] to give him glory. And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And [blasphemed the God of heaven] because of their pains and their sores, and [repented not] of their deeds." (Revelation 16:8-11)

"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is [Six hundred threescore and six]." (Revelation 13:18)

Message added by *Light*

*Light*

Many theologians have made attempts to decipher just what exactly is the number of the Beast? I believe that the mark of the Beast will literally be "666". First we have to understand that the Power that restrains evil on the Earth will step aside, and allow the wicked to do evil without any restraint. Knowing this, the unbelieving of the Earth at that time will be none the wiser (God sends them strong delusion; 2 Thess. 2:7-12), and they will be absolutely clueless of the Beast's "true" motive, and all will be deceived by him.

"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]. And their dead bodies shall lie in the stree of the great city, which spiritually is called [SODOM] and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And [they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry], and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth." (Revelation 11:7-10)

The entertainment industry (e.g., "Hollywood and Music, etc") are full of men and women who flaunt the number of the Beast as if it were something "cool", as they wallow in their Sodomy and Sorcery. The entire deceived world will despise the two witnesses (i.e., "Moses and Elijah) who confront the unbelieving world, and exposes their wickedness and fornication done on the Earth. John the Baptist was supposed to be the Elijah to come before the Great and Terrible day of the Lord, but since the Jews did not receive him as the Elijah to come (cf. Jn. 1:21; Rev. 11:5-6), then it would stand to reason that Elijah MUST come before [THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD] (i.e., Clearly not referring to the first advent; this is referring to Christ's coming in Power and Great Glory to judge the world in righteousness; cf. Mal. 4:5). And as we follow the narrative in the Book of Revelation, we see the Second Coming of Christ after the death and resurrection of the two witnesses. The other witness is Moses, as Moses and Elijah BOTH appeared on the Transfiguration on the Mount (Matt. 17:1-5). Christ unveiled His flesh and Peter, James, and John saw a glimpse of the future Glory of Christ (i.e., the prefiguring of the 1,000 year reign of the Lord) and the two witnesses who would appear on the scene before the Coming of the Lord to Judge the World in Righteousness.

And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, fomr one end of heaven to the other." (Matthew 24:30-31)

Days of Lot

Hello Family of God,

"Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But in the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." (Luke 17:28-30)

There is rise in sexual immorality in today's world, and its rapid increase is unprecedented; but should we be surprised? that is, should Genuine and Discerning Christians be caught "off-guard" by this wickedness? What are most Christians doing today? Most of them are warming the pews at their local churches just waiting to leave as soon as the "worship" service is over; they are too cowardly to defend Biblical Morality and expose the wickedness and perversion of sexually immoral acts, why? Because the fear of imprisonment and retaliation from LGBTQ activists who give "hearty approval" of their rebellion to God's Moral Laws (Rom. 1:32). 

Romans Chapter One discusses what happens when God abandons a nation or society; their hearts become darkened with impurity, and they receive the "due penalty" for their sins (e.g., "AIDS, STD's, etc." v.26-27). These acts of Sodomy are so disgusting and perverse, that the mere mention of it is shameful (cf. Eph. 5:12); such unabashed men and women have abandoned the Moral Laws of God set in stone, and suppress the Truth; therefore, God abandons them and gives them over to the depravity of their sexually promiscuous acts to dishonor their bodies (v.28; "Pornography, Pedophilia, Homosexuality, Lesbianism, Sadomasochism, Bestiality, etc.").
