Eschatology Part 2

Sermon By: Dick Webster

Review last week:

No man has a complete understanding or pure 100% about the visions written in the bible, than the holy spirit. As so, while you are reading this, be under the understanding that this is an interpretation and not concrete right or wrong.

Pre-Points:
-This is a vast subject and a deep subject. You as the reader must get into your bible and study it for a complete learning of it.
-Primary focus is the book of Daniel.
-Daniel is now having the dreams. He's living the dream where his visions written come from.
-Today we can see many things becoming realized from these prophecies.
-Remember these were written thousands of years ago. The things they are describing are based on the only way they themselves can describe it. They've never seen a helicopter, or a nuclear warfare.
-Daniel was seeing some awesome things that we could not imagine, or even wish to see.
-The little horn is not part of the 10 horns. He arrises in the midst of the 10 horns.
-We see the Ancient of Days.
-The Lord sits down and the fiery chariot arrises. The point of the throne comes. The judgement God comes down on Little Horn.

II Corinthians 5:10
-10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Revelation20:11
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The Ancient of Days. God is outside of time. He sits in eternity. He's the ancient of what we know as days. The way He judged the city of Israel, He will judge us in the end of days. If you were not judged the same way, He would have to apologize to Israel. The same God that was in the old testament is the same God that is in the new testament. Nothing has changed in his eyes.

Are you Ready?
The Ancient of Days, the judge of the past, will be the judge of today.

Day1:
Know Jesus Christ deeper and deeper.

Daniel7:9-14
9 ¶I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. 10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. 11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. 12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. 13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

The beast comes out of the sea.

Revilation20:13
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

The sea raised up the dead. Could be the land. The beast will be very charismatic, loving, popular, somebody you want to be around. Somebody that will mesmerize you with his speech.

Sea can be interpreted in many ways. Land or water or group of people.

Daniel7:17
17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

Four beasts, Four kings. They all will have dominion over the nation of Israel. God will return it, but they will take over for a period of time.

The 4 Beasts:
1st Beast: Babylon head of goat: Lions with wings. Jeremiah 49:22/4:7
2nd Beast: Meeds of the Persian:
3rd Beast: Greek of army: Leopard with wings and fast. 4 heads and 4 wings.
4th Beast: Rome: Identified as arms legs and feet. Indescribable.

Many countries have always wanted Israel. Satan has always wanted it and pushed to claim it. Every nation today is influenced by Rome. Rome may have never been defeated.

Roman Catholic Church. Protestant are protestors of the catholic church. Rome is sleeping and will rise again.

Daniel 7:28
20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. 21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; 22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. 23 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. 24 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. 25 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.

Daniel7:20-25 talks about the Little Horn. Description: two eyes and a mouth, spoke boastfully, utter great things, speaks against God, blaspheme God, get people to worship him as God Almighty.

Daniel7:22 speaks of the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ.

When you see the day of the Lord it's the second coming not the Rapture. No matter what you face, what comes at you, what troubles you, whatever will come against you. If you continue to support and worship and walk with Jesus Christ, you will win.

The devil is going to impress you, come against you, do whatever he can, to draw you from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Daniel7:25, Joy of the Lord comes in the morning.

Roman Empire. They did not practice crucifixion, they perfected it. They were destroyers. This is the empire the Beast wants.

The 4th Beast is little horn.

Daniel7:7
After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

Daniel7:24
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.

The beast he saw is the 4th beast, that daniel could not describe was the antichrist. He could not even describe what he was seeing.

Day 3:
Other names for little horn:
-Man of lawlessness, man of sin.
-The beast.
-AntiChrist: The antichrist that paul said in acts that antichrist was there. Paul was talking about the spirit of the antichrist. The antichrist is here today. Any action, any word, any action against the Word of God is the antichrist. Sad part is people look at church today and see antichrist sitting in church. People being afraid to preach the blood of Jesus Christ because it may offend people. But we are lost without the Blood of Jesus Christ.

Paul and Peter offended people. Not in a bad way, but to show people they are lost and wake them up. If you can't call Sin Sin, then how will people know.

Little Horn will change time and laws. You won't be able to come to church and have communion. Our religion system is already being changed. Pastors will be thrown in jail. It's already happening with homosexuality protesting and not marrying homosexuals.

In Orissa India. They are killing christians, burning houses, they are being forced into jungles. It's beginning to calm down, but some 60 people are already dead. America is not far behind.

Revelation 6:2
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.

First of 4 comes alive. A white horse. The man on it is wearing a crown. Only one wearing a crown. Little Horn. He is antichrist. He'll be arising from the remade Rome. Political genius, social genius, a religion genius. Riding on the religious system. He's going to be TOO good, and still, he is pure evil. Evil and Intelligent, the most dangerous.

Antichrist doing to the saints. Daniel7:25 “wear them out, the saints”. Some people believe it's the Jews that believe in Jesus Christ, or the actual saints. The bible always says it's the one's who follow Jesus Christ. So you as a follower are a saint.

Jesus Christ will not come back after the church. Nowhere is it in the Bible. He will come back for his Bride. Sitting in church Sunday, Wednesday, morning or night, singing, preaching, waving your hands; does not make you the Bride. Knowing and following the Lord Jesus Christ does.

Daniel7:27 They are of the most high, are the saints.

Satan uses many things to stray people. He will use you, your friends, your family, sickness, worries, things of the world. We need to help one another, love one another, raise one another.

Satan has been doing evil things for over 6000 years. He's good at it. In heaven he spoke the Five “I Wills” (Isaiah14:13). When he was casted out (Luke 10:18)(Ezekiel 28 is the spoken judgement upon Satan). He took millions of angels with him. In an Angelic perspective. Seeing all that the Angels seen, they were deceived by Satan. He's very good at what he does.

We have Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. There's nothing above them. What will you do when everyday things we do as Christians is outlawed. What will we do if we are faced by the same things that are happening in India.

None of it should effect your Christianity. You're not tied down to anything; Christmas, Easter, Church, etc. You can have preaching anywhere, you can pray and praise anywhere.

3 years. Tribulation time. Peace and the rising of Antichrist. Then the trumps and judgement of God comes.

Different Tribulation Beliefs:
Pretrib: Rapture before the 7 years.
Midtrib: Rapture at the midpoint after the 3.5 years.
Posttrib: Rapture when Judgement comes down.
Historic: Post tribulation.
Millennial: Believe in a reign as in 1000 year reign.

There's a believe that God put in the 7th day of rest for the 1000 years of rest.

Pretrib believers are in the minority. Majority believe in Mid/Post tribulation.

We live now, God comes and gets his bride, raptured would be in heaven for 7 years, everyone else will go through the tribulation. If you live for Jesus Christ during that time, you will lose your head for Jesus Christ. After 7 years, the battle of Armageddon. Bible says “The Word was spoken and it will be over” it will be no long battle. 1000 year millennium will be rest, no sin at all. Reigning on the earth with Jesus Christ. Temple will be in Jerusalem.

Daniel 7:25 Saints will be handed over to the beast. The saints will be the ones that get changed over after the rapture. 144,000 are the Jews of the 12 tribes. They will be in charge of spreading the world. Some believe it's people that realize they were wrong when the rapture comes.

If you don't take the mark of the beast, you will be beheaded. If you don't have it, you will get no food nor water. It will be a requirement for purchasing. But taking it means giving your soul to Satan. This is speculated as being a microchip or barcode made upon the skin or implanted.

Revelation14:9-10
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

A lot of this is speculation. Some questions may never be answered until we get up to heaven. The one thing we do know however for certain, the blood of our Lord God and Savior is the only way to redeem us and save us. He loves us and died for us. He created us and knows every strand of hair on or head. Give your life to Him and you will not be alone.

“No matter if it ends up being pre, post, or mid trib. All I know is that God will see me through.”
