“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” 2nd Thessalonians 2:1-4

There are many who are running here and there, in attempt to prove just how close we http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Global_warning%5E_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1719373.jpgare to that great and notable Day of the Lord.

.

After all, don’t we now see a great interest in the church-world about Bible prophecy concerning these things? Prophecy seminars, and popular international television and radio ministries dedicated solely to Bible prophecy?

But there is a general consensus among all these Bible teachers concerning 2nd Thessalonians, which warns that The Day of the Lord cannot come, until two certain signs are first witnessed in the world…

TWO EVENTS MUST FIRST HAPPEN!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jesus-in-Jeans-by-Peter-Royle.jpgYes, the above passage from 2nd Thessalonians, 2:2 makes very clear… “for that day shall not come, except there come 1. a falling away first, and 2. that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” 2nd Thessalonians 2:3, 4

.

Now here above is seen that two things must first occur, prior to the Day of Christ: “a falling away first” (an apostasy), and the “man of sin be revealed…that he as God sits in the temple of God”.

THE MAN of SIN ALREADY REVEALED

.

Now in the last installment of this series of devotional titled “Apocalypse NOW!”, it was presented that the “Man of Sin” has already been revealed. Yes, contrary to today’s popular consensus in the church-world, Satan has already come in the form of the Antichrist Beast.

But it was not discussed in the first devotional, regarding the other sign that must also be seen, before that day can come…

.

Listen…for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first…” 2nd Thessalonians 2:3

.

Now, this above verse speaks of a falling away which must first come.

WHAT IS “A FALLING AWAY”?

.

Well, to find the answer to this question, the Bible is the only place to search for the answer…

.

Listen…“They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these (who built their house on sand) have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation FALL AWAY.” Luke 8:13

.

So here is seen the meaning of the words, “fall away”.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

FURTHER BIBLE CONFIRMATIONhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg

.

And for further confirmation, the Book of Hebrews says…“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened…If they shall FALL AWAY, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame.” Hebrews 6:4, 6

.

And also, the words, “falling away” in Strong’s Concordance are actually defined as an “apostasy”, or “a forsaking”.

ANY DIRECT PROPHECIES? 

.

So then, the next question is, “Does the Bible ever prophesy of the day when the churches will all fall away?”Evangelist Preaching - Church - Audience hands - Wikimedia - Public Domain

.

Oh yes! Listen again to Paul as he foretells of the day when the churches will fall away…“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; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

.

So here is seen that the Christian churches will turn away from the truth, and from sound doctrine.

ARE WE THERE YET?

.

Now the next question to be asked is this… “Have we arrived at that day, when the great apostasy foretold in Scripture has already occurred?”

.

Well, just about any biblically well-versed conservative Christian understands that a great portion of the churches have now embraced a prosperity-driven, pleasure-focused gospel.

.

.

ARE SOME CHURCHES STILL FAITHFUL?

.

But these same conservative Christians will also affirm that there are still many faithfulhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wv-country-church-morning-snow-storm-pub.JPG churches which still teach from the Bible.

.

So then, these so-called conservative Christians will by no means acknowledge a total apostasy in the church-world. They insist that their church is still faithfully preaching the Bible-only!

.

Well, this website gives many proofs and evidences that the great apostasy has already occurred, both in the so-called “liberal” churches, but also in the so-called “conservative” churches.

.

BOTH EVENTS FULFILLED

.

Now whether the Reader agrees or not concerning the totality of today’s apostasy, it is generally acknowledged that the current apostasy concerns at least half of the churches: those churches who have embraced the prosperity/pleasure gospels.

.

And so, the bottom line to all this is, we can now finally see the two events transpiring before our very eyes: the apostasy of the Christian world, and the revealing of just what is and who is the Antichrist Beast, foretold of in Scripture.

AND SO, ARE WE THERE YET?

.

And so, the signature question of today’s devotional remains, “Have we arrived at the day which is called, The Day of the Lord?”

.

Well, these two devotionals have shown that the two conditions which must first come to pass, are already present on the world stage. And so, there is nothing standing in the way of Judgment Day arriving. 

.

Well, this website offers much more information on these things. And so, please keep reading these devotionals (and “Signs Of Heaven.org”) to gain a fuller understanding of just where we are in time!

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Help me to study, study, study, that I may know for a certainty about these things. Hide me from the fiery tempest which is now coming upon the earth. Help me to put away any worldly traits and affections and lusts which I may still be clinging to. Let me take refuge under the shadow of Thy wings…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

7 HEADS, 10 HORNS, & 7 CROWNS OF THE DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Revelation 12:3 

.

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon Constellation up in the night sky does not.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

But God has faithfully created the wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically composed of ten stars.

.

The main body of the wave has seven stars (#‘s, 1 thru 7). And the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars (#’s, 8, 9 & 10). So we have this 7 and 10 numbering. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).
