The End of the Age.
Editorial by Kenny Brownlee (TheFinalGate.COM Ministries)
Let us read from Matthew chapter 24.
24 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.
23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.
26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
Are you being deceived?
In the scripture above from verse 3 Jesus answered there question with Take heed that no one deceives you He said that many will come in his name, many will pretend to be Him, but not to believe them. Jesus said later that he would come as lighting in the sky. Jesus said that we would see wars and rumors of war, kingdom against kingdom, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes. We have seen all theses things in my generation. We just made it through covid-19 that killed millions, what is happening with our southern border is killing hundreds of thousands of those coming in and those within the US from drugs and crime. There should be no doubt that we are living in the end times.
Verse 9 thru 12 is very interesting, let us take a deeper look. Verse 9. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. What is going on in this country right now? What is the most moral issue of our day? Abortion has taken center stage with the Supreme Court’s decision to allow each State to set abortion laws. This has sparked pro-abortion activist to spread hatred toward the Church, and any pro-life organizations and Christian help centers trying to save the un-born. While pro-abortion Politicians spear head protest and hate toward our Supreme Court Justice who is protecting and following the constitution. Maxine Walters is quoted as saying “The hell with the Supreme Court” Do you see the passion to kill un-born babies within the voices of the left liberal politicians from Nancy Pelosi,
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Kamala Harris, among others. They are so enthusiastic about it they are willing to ram abortion down every Americans throat no matter what State you live in or what your faith in God is. They will stop at nothing to gain more power and control of government even at the expense of the un-born who have no voice. That my friend is "hated for my name’s sake". That being the name of Jesus. When is the last time you heard one of theses politicians talk about the rights of the un-born? We all will stand before Jesus and give an accounting for what we did for the un-born.
Verse 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. Many will betray and hate one another; do you see that happening in our country? I am 65 years old, and I have never seen a more divided nation and more hate toward conservative Americans than right now. It is not just conservative but hate toward the Church (Christians). Hate toward our country and founding fathers, hate for anything that requires focus on our constitution.
Do you see in verse 12 that lawlessness will abound and the love of many will grow cold? We see this all over the place, crime is out of control. Do you think “the love of many will grow cold” because of the evil that man has become? How much love would it take to be concern for the un-born?
Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel
In verse 15 we read “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel" Let us read what Jesus is talking about:
31 And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation.
8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what shall be the end of these things?”
9 And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10 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.
11 “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. 12 Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.
13 “But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.”
Basically, the “abomination of desolation” is the event in which antichrist will setup his image to be worshiped in the Israelite temple, which will be located in current Jerusalem. In history, this abomination was an idol. But in the case of the end of days, the antichrist will set himself up as the idol for the people to worship.
The emperor known Antiochus IV Epiphanes. by his nickname Epimanes (madman), Antiochus would attempt to oppress Israel unlike any other empire before. Reigning between 175 BC to 164 BC, this Seleucid King was known for trying to spread Hellenistic influence throughout Israel.
So much so that he oppressed the Jewish people in a number of ways:
- He erected an altar to the Greek god Zeus in the middle of the Israelite temple and sacrificed a pig, both items strictly forbidden in Jewish law, according to this article from Encyclopedia Britannica.
- He regarded himself as Zeus, a manifestation of a god, and thus wanted Israel to worship him (foreshadowing what the antichrist would do, force everyone to worship a false god).
- He outlawed circumcision under penalty of death and forced the Jews to sacrifice to the Greek gods.
- He killed a great many of the Jews and sold many into slavery when they protested his abomination of desolation. Not only did he suppress Jewish culture, but he attempted to stamp it out.
Daniel 11:21-35 perfectly describes Antiochus. He invades during a time when everyone least suspects it. For instance, the Israelites had rebuilt the city and temple after the time of the Babylonians; he will loot his people (he ends up looting the temple); he will act deceitfully — especially true in the case of the antichrist — and will desecrate the temple and abolish the daily sacrifice. In other words, not only does he defile the temple, but he also forces the Jews to stop their daily, religious rituals. Those who know God will resist him, as we see in the case of the revolt. This same event will take place in the future of the antichrist that will be very similar to Antiochus.
Jesus is telling those who are living during this time to flee to the mountians, not to go back to the fields or housetops to get anything or anyone. Hide because you will be told to worship this image or be killed.
Rev 13:14-17 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Look, we can clearly see that Godly values and morals are being removed and replaced by evil. We see increased demands from the few yelling the loudest to make everyone the same and equal in character and abilities when we know that is not possible. We are all created as unique individuals and with different personalities, moral values, and faith. We cannot all be the same unless we are living in this end times spoken of by Jesus in Matthew. When all will be required to worship the image of antichrist.
Can you see where we are headed? Jesus also talked about being deceived or mislead by false prophets that will rise up and lead many away from the truth. Do you see or recognize any false teachers or politicians today that are selling this new world utopia for all? These same false leaders are pretending to be prophets and Godly leaders as they champion abortion (killing of the un-born). They claim to show compassion and love as they watch and allow thousands to be raped and die from drugs and crime at our southern boarders and do nothing to stop it or put into place a solution. But only with the hope of being able to create new voters one day for their party.
Have you ever noticed how liberal politicians of our day are always telling you that our democracy is at stake and is under attack by the conservative GOP party? Have you noticed that the democrats are stopping at nothing short of completely disbanding or abolishing the Republican party with all this January 6th circus trail drama played out on TV like an ABC reality show? Have you noticed how protest and assaults against conservative Americans and politicians are treated different than those against Liberal democrat’s or followers of the democratic party?
The biggest and loudest false information and lies are the ones concerning the United States Constitution and our Democracy. Why do I say that? What are the key issues that the liberal democrats are running on for November?
- Pro-Abortion (it is not in our constitution, which is why the Supreme Court ruled the way they did over abortion), So they attack the Supreme Court which is a branch of our government and constitution. (Jan 6th was the end of the world, but attack on the Supreme Court is just protesting) They wish to pack the court with more liberal thinking ideology judges to control the supreme court instead of preserving it based on the constitution.
- Gun-Control (Is nothing less than attack on our second amendment rights under that same constitution.) They simply wish to do away with the 2nd amendment. Instead of protecting the 2nd amendment rights to bear arms, they are trying to re-write the description of what that means, and re-write the descriptions of firearms.
The is the first page of the HR 1808 Gun Control Bill being introduced as of today, 07/26/2022 by the house. Democrats confirmed this morning that they are just one vote shy of the support they need to pass HR 1808 on to the Senate. This Bill if passed through congress would ban the sale of most every type of gun in existence today. Do you see the key words "is not unlimited" and "for other purposes" in the title of the 1808 bill. It is very clear to me that this bill is setting limitations to the right to keep and bear arms.
The second amendment reads like this:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
One of the key phrases within the second amendment is “shall not be infringed.” That is totally contrary to “not unlimited”. And “for other purposes”. What is "other purposes"?
This bill is trying to add to the second amendment by adding limitations to what is considered “arms” in modern times and the other purposes are anything else (parts, magazine etc...) that they may think of to also set limitations too.
If the democrats can gain total control of all three branches of our government – White House, Congress, and Supreme Court, they will totally demolish it and replace it with a new republic style government with new documents. They will call that a "new age democracy" sorted like "build back better". It will NOT have the 1st or 2nd amendments.
I am sick of Benedict Arnold democratic politicians telling me that they are protecting the United States Constitution and our Democracy. They are liars. This party is doing any and everything except protecting the United States Constitution and our Democracy! Sorry, I got carried away with my personal ranting.
In verse 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! This is a very distributing verse; it seems to say that it will be bad news for woman who are pregnant or has just given birth or at least nursing her young baby. What else is going on right now that would be a sign? Baby Food Formula shortage.
The FDA under the Joe Biden administration shut down one of the biggest baby food manufacturing companies Abbott. The FDA closed the plant after federal inspectors found Abbott failed to maintain sanitary conditions and procedures there — sparking a cascade of crippling effects on the supply chain. It is not the fact that they shut down the plant, but the failure of the Biden Administration to ack on getting something to replace the lost supply.
In siting this event that to my knowledge has never happen before, it seems to me that something else could have been done to prevent this, unless it was under direct orders from those in power.
I found this chart very interesting, the fact that Southeastern states are the least in breastfeeding than the Northern States. Are mothers getting away from breastfeeding and becoming more dependent on baby food formula. This will certainly play a major role during these last days of tribulations or at least on the 7th hour. (Sabbath) or during winter. This indicates that it will be a horrific thing for a mother to watch as her baby dies of mild nutrition and starvation.
Jesus repeats or emphasizes the idea or message not to trust anyone claiming to be Christ. He said if anyone says “I am Christ” come here or there. Do not believe them. Because Jesus repeats this tells me that He is very concerned for those who may be around during this period of time. It seems to me; it will be very difficult to keep the faith without facing death during this time. False prophets, false Christ, false world leaders, false teachers, lying politicians and many with deceiving spirits will be all around, so much that people will believe and follow for lack of knowledge and faith. It will be much easier to just follow the crowd.
As it is today, people follow what they hear and see on TV, they follow the advice of leaders and hollywood personalities, pop singers and pop culture, pro athletes, and drug prescriptions among other things. People will be far from knowing who Jesus is anyway,
If you are living during this time in the future? You may have to give your life up to save it. Will you be ready?
The thing is you must know who Jesus Christ is and accept him as Lord and Savior to understand this message or editorial. You can do that today if you like, just select the Salvation Link at the top of this page.
Jesus gives us (the church) special instructions on the end of days and how to manage it if we are living during that time. Not only for living during that time but to have understanding that all theses things must take place for God the Father to send His Son Jesus Christ to complete His plan for the new heaven and earth. He indicates that evil will abound leading up to and during this time, you do not want to be left out to go through this. Make yourself ready by accepting Jesus and pray that your faith can carry you through this time if required.
Remember that the disciples ask Jesus “what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” The answer is for us to be ready and not to be asleep or naive or so willing to run to or accept everything that seems right from the worlds point of view. But make sure it is Christ like, is it something that is from God or from Satan? For example: Is abortion from God or Satan? You see so many will say that they are Pro-Life but believe a woman has the right to abortion. The thing is all things are possible with God if given the chance. Abortion does not come from the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
God, I pray for our country, and I pray that you allow more time for salvation by helping the people of this great nation replace the un-Godly leaders with Godly and Spirit filled leaders through democracy and freedom of our elections and turn this ship around. But let your will be done not mine. Amen.
