The False Prophet, Part 32: “Evangelicalism: The False Prophet?”

To read Part 1 of this series, click here… “JANUARY 26 (The False Prophet, Part 1: Lying Eyes!)”

 

.

.

.

.

.

The Book of Revelation speaks of a beast which is identified in Chapters 13, 16, 19, and 20 as “The False Prophet”.

.

Now, contrary to popular opinion, this false Prophet is not merely one single individual, but represents Satan’s modus-operandi in these last centuries.

.

.

So this is the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13.

.

But just what or who is this 1st Beast?

.

Well, Satan originally came as the 1st Beast of Revelation 13 during the Dark Ages, persecuting, torturing, and killing all those (and sometimes even their family members), who clung to their Bibles in the face of the great apostate Church of that era, which used the civil governments as their enforcers.

THE 2ND BEAST

.

But after this brutal 1st beast received his deadly wound by a sword (the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God: Ephesians 6:13, 14), which was the printing press and all the Bibles it produced, Satan altered his modus-operandi, establishing a new and improved Beast. The new beast, the False Prophet, was actually Satan’s antichrist spirit working in and through the unsaved church and world to deceive the earth’s inhabitants, causing them to worship the 1st beast.

THE TWO HORNS OF THE FALSE PROPHET

.

But before we get into some very tall weeds, let’s back out and focus on just one of this beast’s two horns. Yes, the Bible reveals that this second beast has two horns like a lamb. And of course, the Lamb of God, Jesus has two horns of power, Mercy and Justice.

.

And our focus today is on the Justice horn of this False Prophet.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Now it doesn’t take too much effort to see the two great horns of power out there in the world: the conservatives and the progressives, or the capitalists and socialists. The conservatives/capitalists stand upon the pillars of law and order while the progressives stand on the pillars of mercy and compassion. These seemingly opposing ideologies are a clever counterfeit of the Lamb of God’s two horns…”All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep His Covenant and His Testimonies.” Psalm 25:10

.

Now, these two opposing ideologies are very visible in the forefront of society. They are in the various media each and every day, fighting for dominance over one-another.

.

But if one examines today’s church-world, these two groups can also be seen hard at work, shaping and hewing the minds of parishioners within the various organizations of Christendom.

.

And so, this two-horned antichrist spirit can be seen both in the world and in the church-world.

.

And let’s face, the apostasy of the conservative portion of the churches is much more deceptive than the liberal portion, so much so, that they, “shall…seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” Mark 13:22

.

Yes, the many popular radio Bible teachers we hear each day seem to teach right from the Bible. And yet, the King James Bible (and perhaps even a few other versions) makes a revealing statement about true and false Bible teachers.

.

Listen…Isa 28:10  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little…To whom He said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

.

Here is the true means whereby a Believer can arrive at truth: by carefully comparing the various Bible passages on any particular subject, allowing them all to line up in such a way as to bring them all in harmony.

.

But the Lord complains through His prophet, Isaiah, that His disobedient children refused to enter into His truths which bring spiritual “rest unto your souls” No, but rather, Isaiah 28:13 goes on to say…”But the Word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.” Here we see that the current-day apostasy was foretold even back in Isaiah’s day!

.

And just as Isaiah says, today’s church-world will string together their own set of Bible verses (“…line upon line, precept upon precept…”), all in hopes of allowing the apostate parishioners to continue to pursue the pleasures and ambitious pursuits of the world, while paying mere lip-service to Jesus, even as it is written…”This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me.” Matthew 15:8

.

Thus, the prosperity-driven gospels thrive, not only in those liberal churches and denominations, but likewise in the so-called conservative churches as well.

.

And even though there are a myriad of false teachers in the church-world today, the Bible refers to them collectively as “the False Prophet” as spoken of in Revelation, Chapters 13, 16, 19, and 20

.

The Good News is, that God is calling His people to separate themselves from the overpowering influence of these false teachers, even as it is written…Rev_18:4  And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, Come out of her (spiritual Babylon), My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

.

Yes, God Is now calling His faithful ones to engage in an end-time exodus, lest we suffer the various plagues soon to be poured out upon this False Prophet which the evangelical churches have finally become…”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

.

The day has finally arrived when this above prophecy is now fulfilled!

.

The question that remains to be answered is this: “Will you also come out of her, this spiritual Babylon?”

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.” Rev. 12:3 

.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

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. 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).
