A possible scenario for End Times

Posted by appolus on August 2, 2014

This subject can be very difficult to approach today because there have been so many crazy people claiming when the end of the world would happen. The below scenario reckons on the saints going through the great tribulation. Therefore there is no particular day or hour that is looked for, rather a season, birth pangs if you like. We are told by Jesus that we should be able to discern the signs of the times, not the day nor the hour of His return. In any event, most Peoples of the world and the church have a difficult time imagining a time where Christians would be hunted down and killed for the mere fact of being Christian. They may be able to imagine this in a Muslim world setting, but not in the West. I do not claim that the scenario below is prophetic, I merely wish to show you a logical procession of events that could lead to a world-wide persecution of the true saints.

I think we may all agree that Jesus is coming relatively soon. Where we may disagree is on the subject of rapture. Lets assume there is no rapture and Jesus is coming soon, then the saints will go through the great tribulation. The Scriptures tells us that it will be worse than anything that has ever happened before in history, in fact the Lord must shorten those days for the elects sake or we would all be dead.

Just 70 years ago, in the heart of educated and cultured Europe, in a country that pronounced itself to be Christian, an evil man arose and in six short years, killed six million Jews for the mere fact of being Jewish. He shoved them into gas chambers and then burned them in furnaces, men, woman and children, sparing none. Now this is not some Biblical genocide from the ancient world, this is something that happened just 70 years ago. Now what kind of events would need to unfold for the world to turn on Christians and for their to be a coming together of the world religions into one religion?

Lets say tomorrow there is an attack by Muslim extremists on multiple cities. New York, Washington, London, Paris Rome and Moscow are hit simultaneously with nuclear suitcase bombs. Rather than the three thousand dead of 9/11, there is one hundred thousand dead in each city. The world is repulsed and is brought together because of this great tragedy. Fundamentalists of all stripes are universally condemned and outlawed. To state publicly that there is only one true religion, only one way to heaven, becomes illegal. Such people are denounced as those who have caused all the troubles in the world. They are seen as a cancer on society which society must rid itself of.

So society gives them a chance to renounce such believes. At the same time, the major religions of the world have a summit. Islam, Christianity and the Jewish faith come together for a summit in Rome. Pope Francis leads the summit because he is universally respected. When the meeting is over they announce that they can all trace their roots back to Abraham. That they all worship the same God just in different ways. They announce that there are multiple roads to heaven and that to say otherwise is merely hate speech. They agree to drop Jesus and Mohammed from their literature and only speak in terms of God and His prophets, agreeing to stand upon what they agree on and bringing a historic unity that will usher in a new day, a new order for the world where there is equality for all.

The vast majority of the world hail this and rejoice in it. A small minority resist it and in the shadow of the multiple hundreds and thousands of deaths, the world hates them with a perfect hatred. They hate them more than the Germans hated the Jews. The minority cannot find work and are ultimately arrested for continuing to ” share the Gospel.” While they are a minority, they are still in the millions and camps are set up to imprison them because the prison system cannot contain them. An ever-growing hatred by the general public and resentment that they have to be fed and kept eventually leads to the decision to make it a capital offense punishable by death to be a fundamental Christian.

If I had time and space, I could weave into that scenario the rise of the anti-christ who orchestrates all of those events and performs signs and wonders and miracles in front of the whole world to legitimize what he and the Pope and the religious leaders are teaching and saying about the minority, the remnant who refused to bow their knees to such a world religion. I want you to imagine such a man, before the camera’s of the world, healing a man blind from birth, or raising a man from the dead. The whole world will follow after such a man, and the world religious leaders who are now one would verify that he is in fact, God returned.

    Well, brother I beg to differ with you, I think this is prophetic and Revelation 17 the woman who sits upon the beast with seven heads is a symbolic picture of this. I am blown away right now because a dear brother and I have been for probably a year now bouncing thoughts and insight off one another, just the other day came up with this very same scenario. Wow!! what a conformation.

      I do believe the Lord has given me wisdom in these matters brother. Everything seems to be in place, we await the catalyst and prepare our hearts. Only the lovers of truth will stand in these days…………….bro Frank

    Brother Appolus, I am in agreement with so much of what you have said here, we have been witnessing the Whore of Babylon coming together so quickly in the last two decades. she being – the Apostate Church mentioned in – Revelation 17 – I also believe the False Prophet very likely is this new Pope whom is calling for the merging of all religions for the betterment of World Peace. He is very influential with world leaders and believes in many ways to the Father. One MUST have a steadfast and unshakable faith in our Lord Jesus Christ a true cross bearer, surrendered to our Lord, keeping a real intimate relationship with our Lord, saints of God he does manifest his presence, he has promised if you seek me with your whole heart you shall find me, he has promised if we open the door he will come in and sup with you.. It is this that ruins us for him. He truly is a relational Savior.

    Many will die for their testimony of Christ, during the Great Tribulation passing on from this earth only to be under the alter of God and given white robes – Praise God – even our precious young children if martyred because we refuse to deny Jesus shall be counted among these martyred and under the alter of God and if we are martyred we shall join them. I believe it is so important to keep this prospective in mind and settling it now praying for strength to stand in these days of persecution, trusting in the one whom loves us and saved us and whom will keep us.

    It is so important we his true disciples his end of days witnesses try to reach as many as possible for Christ. Other than our relationship with Christ this is our first priority. Keep in mind Jesus at the cross was the victor over sin and death. We saints will overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our Testimony! He is our rock our shield our salvation, those whom are his, he will never leave nor forsake. Let us pray daily for the Remnant of Jesus Christ.
    Blessings, lynn

    • appolus said

      Amen sister Lynne. We should pray daily for the remnant of God. We should prepare ourselves now and have it settled in our hearts. The Lord did this in the Garden of Gethsemane. He settled in His heart to follow the will of God all the way to Calvary. We , His remnant children , are lovers of the truth.

      “They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.” (2 Thes 2:10)

      “People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy.”(2Tim 3:2)

      “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth.” (2Thess 2:9)

      The love of the truth is something that we receive as genuine saints from God. It is a fire in our bones, it is as much a part of us as our arms are legs, in fact more so for we could live without our arms or legs, but the fire in our bones comes from our spirit which comes from God. In every century God’s people have suffered and died for the Truth and their love of it. As it was in those days, so it is today. People love many things , themselves, money, position their spouses and their children but the one great love of the saints life, that eclipses all other loves is their love of the Truth in the person of Jesus and His word……………..bro Frank

    Hi Brother Frank,
    This is a plausible scenario but what of the Jews? Most Jews I know are cultural Jews and would just fold to the secular state. However, we know from God’s word that they will realize the Messiah and mourn that He was pierced. From my reading and searching I believe the Jews will be instrumental in the last days doing what God had intended all along – blessed to be a blessing. How will the Jews stand out as different in your scenario? Do you think there will be only a remnant that repent?

    • appolus said

      Hi KMH. I believe that the state of Israel will not be a party to the end time persecution of the saints. I believe that this will enrage the other nations of the world, along with other matters ( failure to give up the nuclear arsenal and so on) and that at some point all the nations of the world will come against Israel. I believe that many in Israel will witness the mass slaughter, worldwide, of genuine saints and they will be repulsed by it, and that it will be a witness to them, a people especially sensitive to genocide, and that however many of them shall be saved…………………..br Frank

    WHO IS ISREAL – and Gods Plan of restoration
    posted Oct 25, 2011 by Lynn

    QUOTE – from Derek Prince
    “Almost limitless understanding ignorance and distortation have infiltrated the church for many certuries concerning the true idenity of Israel”
    He also went on to say “the minds of many christians seems to be clouded in reguards to the application of the name Israel”

    So today we see so strongly – “Replacement Theology” taught within the church – claiming Israel has been replaced by the church
    .
    All the while Gods word says in Romans 11 – as Paul so clearly writes:

    “Concerning the gospel – they are enemies for your sake – but concerning the election they ( Israel ) are beloved for the sake of the Fathers ( Patriots )
    FOR THE GIFTS AND CALLING OF GOD ARE IRREVOCABLE.”

    Did you see this what Paul has just claimed? – God’s unconditional Covenant to Israel and her Patriots are Irrevocable!

    And Paul goes on to have said:

    Romans 11
    1 I ask, then, has God rejected his own people, the nation of Israel? Of course not! I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham and a member of the tribe of Benjamin
    .
    2 No, God has not rejected his own people, whom he chose from the very beginning.

    and

    11 Did God’s people stumble and fall beyond recovery? Of course not!

    They were disobedient, so God made salvation available to the Gentiles.

    But he wanted his own people to become jealous and claim it for themselves.

    12 Now if the Gentiles were enriched because the people of Israel turned down God’s offer of salvation

    think how much greater a blessing the world will share when they finally accept it.

    13 I am saying all this especially for you Gentiles. God has appointed me a ( Jew ) as the apostle to the Gentiles. I stress this,

    14 for I want somehow to make the people of Israel jealous of what you Gentiles have, so I might save some of them.

    15 For since their rejection meant that God offered salvation to the rest of the world,

    their acceptance will be even more wonderful. It will be life for those who were dead!
    ( Ezekiel’s dry Bones )

    16 And since Abraham and the other patriarchs were holy, their descendants will also be holy—just as the entire batch of dough is holy because the portion given as an offering is holy. For if the roots of the tree are holy, the branches will be, too

    17 But some of these branches from Abraham’s tree—some of the people of Israel—have been broken off.

    And you Gentiles, who were branches from a wild olive tree, have been grafted in.

    So now you also receive the blessing God has promised Abraham and his children,

    So both Natural Israelite Jews and Gentile believers whom because of unbelief on Israel’s part have been grafted in and are now recieptants of the blessings of Abraham, God had promised Abraham.

    From the seed of Abraham came Jesus/Yeshua the promised Messiah from the Tribe of Judah – he the seed that would bless the whole earth – the promise God made to Abraham – he would have many children as many as the sand of the sea.

    We gentiles have having been grafted in – having been made partakers of the Root that is holy – that being Jesus Christ are now part of Abrahams seed.

    BUT

    we have never replaced Israel – see God has a better plan and he will fulfill that very plan no matter how much many want to replace Israel with the church.

    SEE GOD DOES NOT HAVE A PLAN OF REPLACEMENT – BUT A PLAN OF RECONCILLATION.

    Paul describes here in Romans 11 – what God shall will bring forth:

    12 Now if the Gentiles were enriched because the people of Israel turned down God’s offer of salvation

    think how much greater a blessing the world will share when they finally accept it.

    Paul said the whole earth shall be greater blessed when Israel is grafted back in and salvation comes to Israel.

    HOW WILL THIS BE??? – what has God got planned – what is the greater blessing?

    Might I subjest the whole earth shall see the greatest evangelism ever witnessed on this earth when Gods two witnesses (both Jew and Gentile ) go throughout the whole earth.
    Zechariah 4

    Many whom risk their very lives during the Tribulation for the gospel of Jesus Christ many martyred – but only to immediately be under the alter of God in his very presence.

    LET US TAKE A LOOK AT SCRIPTURE – to further see Gods plan for Israel and the church.

    I believe the scriptures showing the joining of Naomi a Jew and Ruth a gentile – that the Jews need the church and the church needs the Jew.

    It was Ruth’s need after her husband died to join herself to Naomi her widowed mother-in-law and to leave and go with her to her Israelite reletives.

    Now God has said when a man joins himself to his wife and the wife joins herself to her husband they become one.

    So it was fitting Naomi chose to go and live with her mother- in – law a Jew whom she loved – not to mention this was God’s will that she do so for out of this Naomi met Boaz a Jew and they were to marry

    Obed – as a result of this marriage – was the Grandfather of King David – fulfilling the prophecy the Messiah – would be a descendant of King David.

    When Esther identified herself as a Jew at the cost of her own life – the Jews were saved from destruction and she married a gentile King – the book of Esther shows many gentiles became Jews and believed in God.
    Esther 8

    Somehow God had a way even in the Old Testament of joining the Jew and Gentile together and he will in the New.

    I believe this to be his final plan – see in the days in which we are now living – it is true the Jews according to Romans 11 – have been blinded in part to the gospel because of their un-belief – BUT GOD HIMSELF -will save them from their blindness and Zechariah 12 says they will have their spiritual blindness removed and they will begin to recognize and see the one whom they have pierced was/is their Messiah and they will deeply morn and be saved from it.
    Zechariah 12

    What so many seem to not recognize today even as I type here -the gentile church – so many it seems too have also fallen into a form of blindness – and disobedience – just look at how most of the church today is in such unbelief and deception!

    Also look at the misguided teachings that have spread concerning the church and claiming to now be Israel.

    Saints – this lie has to be dwelt with and strongly rebuked – for it is of satan himself to try to thwart the PLAN OF GOD in these end days.

    PLEASE DO GO AND LOOK AT THE SCRIPTURES CONCERNING THIS:

    Ezekiel 37 :16 – God very clearly shows if you read the whole of scripture here is speaking here of Israel – NOT THE CHURCH – God calls -BOTH – Judah and Ephraim – Israel here in scripture promising to reunite their dry bones together once again in the Land of Israel he had given them and their forefathers- which has been a fulfillment Prophecy in 1948.

    A Jew is from Judah and the Israelites are from the Ten Northern Tribes – all Natural Jews from the Seed of Abraham – Paul whom was a Jew from the Tribe of Benjamin – called himself a Jew – an Israelite and a Hebrew – all three being interchangeable.

    The church is not natural Israel – a natural Jew or Hebrew.

    The Ten Tribes are not lost – God knows exactly where the are, God has said he would return them to Israel – his own words – God has never said he would return the church back to the physical land of Israel during the church age – and he has brought many Jews and is still bringing may Jews back to Israel.

    He names these Natural Jews in Revelations 7 and where they are being sealed by his Holy Spirit of promise just as we have been in Ephesians 1.

    This jealousy among the church against Israel – is demonic – and is an abomination to God – for it is the church who God had purposed to make the Jew jealous.

    The parable of the prodigal son is a wonderful example of showing the prodigal has to come back to the father in order to have the special supper the banquet.

    The marriage supper of the Lamb will not take place until the Jew is – re-grafted back in – and God has – restored his original order of things and created for himself one glorious Bride for his Son.
    Luke17 – will have then been fulfilled – AND SAINTS WE ARE IN THE END OF DAYS – PRAISE GOD – God is going to restore back his church – ONE NEW MAN IN JESUS CHRIST – from both Jew and Gentile – becoming one – Jesus the head cornerstone – and he will come with a shout and we all shall rise to meet our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the air many call the rapture and be together with him forever i-Amen, so be it Lord.

    Given in the Love of God, Lynn

    Hi, brother:

    I don’t have any firm ideas where or how, but it would seem any end-time scenario would have to allow a major role for Mormonism. Although they are numerically somewhat of a “minority religion” (currently claiming 15 million members worldwide), there are good reasons to consider Mormons could be key players in the enemy’s anti-Christ deceptions.

    Mormons say they worship Jesus Christ: even though their own President/Prophet declared to an international LDS conference in 1998 that “…the traditional Christ of whom [Christians] speak is not the Christ of whom I speak.” (http://www.ldschurchnewsarchive.com/articles/print/31188/Crown-of-gospel-is-upon-our-heads.html)

    Mormons claim their “scripture” is God’s perfected word, although it contradicts the Bible.

    Mormons style themselves “the Church of Jesus Christ (of Latter Day Saints).”

    Mormonism is indeed the only other world-religion that absolutely claims the Name of Jesus Christ: falsely claims, to pervert. That seems to manifest the essence of what “anti-Christ” means, in a way Islam and Judaism cannot.

    How that might all play out, I have no idea. But I’d fully expect that satan will make maximum use of the counterfeit “Christianity” he already has in place, when he strikes out against the true believers in Christ.

    In Jesus, Steve

      I believe that the Mormons and every other cult and church will be swept into the great whore church of end times……………bro Frank

      • wakarusaguy said

        Hi, brother: that’s probably true. So Mormonism’s counterfeit of Christianity is probably designed to have its primary deluding impact before then, in the run-up to the end-times…i.e., today?

        In Jesus, Steve

        • appolus said

          Yes I believe so brother. Most ” Christian” cults today began in the 1800s and have this in common, the denial of a literal eternal hell and a belief in a Jesus that is not Biblical. This will certainly play into end time delusion……………bro Frank
