The Rebellious or Last Days Generation
A scripture study only.
Test every word and spirit against the word of God in your Bible.
I encourage that any scripture here included be considered within context of related scripture throughout, also verify translation from original Hebrew and Greek for accuracy.
So I have included this study within my other articles for public view, but strongly suggest much prayer and guidance of the Lord before reading.
br> Much of religious biblical history is being rewritten concerning the Covenant people of God, often with apparent purpose to deceive. Among these will be heard stories of political division and worldly intrigue concerning Sephardic, Ashkenazi - Khazarian, and Canaanites. In part declaring Ashkenazi being origin from Northern Turkey and Europe are not even semantic peoples, and certainly Sephardic are semantic in origin. This study presented below will forgo new world teachings of truth and fable, mixed with apparent purpose to mislead, instead this study will rely upon a book passed among generations of peoples remaining true (spiritually discerned) as God inspired, called the Bible. Important but little known by most Gentile, about the Chosen called Jewish being true in faith devoutly obedience to Torah and God, these have suffered greatly for their rejection of secular and political mindset of rebellious Jewish naming themselves Zionist Congress, and their purpose with Rothschild help establishing a man made secular State of Israel. Also true covenant believers have in prayer sought the prophesied regathering in the last days, however faithful to God as told in Heb 11:15-16 "If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. Instead, they were longing for a better country a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them." These times and places of this earth that we take such pride, as imposing and amazing as they are, are described as but a shadow of the everlasting never to be destroyed nor created by the hand of man, and as assured are found in heaven. Christ now promises He has prepared a place for us, and that it is not of this earth, yet spiritually within us certainly as the HS. Do you know where in the Tanakh (complete Old Testament) God tells about the conditions of (yet this earthage) when He will bring the scattered first into new covenant, and after purging the rebel in revolt against God, bring the remnant back into the eternal Israel. Read Gods word for yourself, Ezek 20:32-38 "'You say, "We want to be like the nations, like the peoples of the world, who serve wood and stone." But what you have in mind will never happen. As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I will rule over you with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with outpoured wrath. I will bring you from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with outpoured wrath. I will bring you into the desert of the nations and there, face to face, I will execute judgment upon you. As I judged your fathers in the desert of the land of Egypt, so I will judge you, declares the Sovereign Lord. I will take note of you as you pass under my rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant. I will purge you of those who revolt and rebel against me. Although I will bring them out of the land where they are living, yet they will not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord." Do you see the House of Israel and the House of Judah living in peace within the man made State of Israel today, Jeremiah 3:14-18 describes the remnant temporarily of hardened heart called faithless, that are together brought back as Israel to Zion, here Zion of promise is accomplished by annointing their Messiah Christ Jesus as Lord. To begin this study first must be clarified the book of Daniel chapter-9 concerning the 70-week prophecy given to Daniel. This prophecy begins describing three periods that total are 70-weeks, described in Dan 9:24 "Seventy 'sevens' are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy." Next is described the first two periods (7x7 plus 62x7) as 69-weeks during which the city of Jerusalem was to be rebuilt (earlier it had been the temple to be rebuilt), Dan 9:25-26 "Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven 'sevens,' and sixty-two 'sevens'". This is commonly accepted as the period leading up to the first advent of Christ who was to be anointed as the Most Holy. After the sixty-two sevens (7x7 plus 62x7 = 69 weeks), begins the third and last period (or) 70th-week, now Satan is released from the abyss (as ruler of earth) prophetically describing wars until the end, Dan 9:26"After the sixty-two 'sevens,' the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed." The people of the ruler (Satan) would likely be Gog and Magog, identified being as numerous as the sand on the seashore. Also important in Daniel 9:25-27, it is not a temple destroyed but the city of Jerusalem and a sanctuary (OT6942 'godesh' - a sacred place) destroyed, concerning this verse saying on a wing [of the temple]... this "of the temple" is not found in the original Bible text... so Daniel is clearly describing "on a wing" that describes an edge or border area. Sacrificial alter's were always found in the center of a temple, not in a border area, but found before the stairs leading up into the Holy of Holies. Within the remnant called Herods temple today there is what is called a Wailing Wall. This wall (wailing) is agreed by experts not a remnant of the Temple, but instead a remnant of Ft. Antonia, a Fort and garrison where the Roman army occupied while totally destroying Herod's Temple. Christians need remember the Temple past, of which Christ foretold not one stone would be left standing upon another. This is what is said in Dan 9:24-26 "Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven 'sevens,' and sixty-two 'sevens.' It (Jerusalem) will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. After the sixty-two 'sevens,' the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed." The last part of this prophecy tells of Satans 70th-week (7-years) rule over earth divided into two parts saying, Dan 9:27 "He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing [of the temple] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him." It takes no imagination to identify this sanctuary (or sanctified place), as an area near what is today called the Wailing Wall. As Satan is prominent in the issue of rebellion, I will start with Satan cast out of heaven (this happens only once) being bound and sealed in the abyss, the inspired word of God describes in Isaiah 14:12-15 "How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High." But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit." Here the grave is 'Sheol' (commonly called Hell or Hades), and the pit is the 'abyss' (within Grave/Sheol/Hell/Hades). Some say that Satan will not be cast into the Abyss until Christ returns a second time for final judgment, however the New Testament assures salvation by Christ begins after Satan cast (only once) first into the Pit/Abyss, verse telling of Satan bound in the Abyss before the salvation ministry of Christ is told in Rev 12:9-10 "The great dragon was hurled down-that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down." Christ during His ministry on earth described to those around Him of having already seen Satan fall, saying in Luke 10:18-19 "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven." Paul assured his followers of Satan now held back (in Abyss) until the last days when Satan will be revealed, this told in 2 Thess 2:5-6 "Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time." It is very important to understand God in creation did not make man evil nor sinful, instead after creation sixth day and night saying 'all was very good'. What is described of man is that the 'flesh' is weak, flesh as week thus deceived being bent to sin, this eventual sin of all men properly described in Romans 5:12 " Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned..." Sin is the 'one man' who is Satan, and of Satan as adversary by deceit and lies, leads eventually all men (weak of flesh) into sin. From this with man now dead in sin, is understood salvation, this through Christ for those of faith being born again, also called made alive again or resurrected from death, these called saint that endure will reign with Christ for all eternity. To continue, a time or generation is to come described by Apostle Paul, when there will be a rebellion or great falling away. Paul describes two important events that saints need not have worry, the first is the 'coming of the Lord' for those passing in death, and later those yet living will be gathered to be with all of the saints described in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 "...and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air." This also described in 2 Thessalonians 2:1 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him..." Paul then concludes concerning his previous teaching about the Return of the Lord also called the Day of the Lord not occurring until first must occur the apostasy and revealing of Satan the lawless one, saying in 2 Thessalonians 2:2-4 "... that you may not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. " Two more important points were made by Paul within the above verse, the first concerning Satan now in the abyss, and during this time the Lord restraining Satan from deceiving all nations as he had done before, Satan restrained today described in Rev 20:3 "He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time." Again read the bible account of Satan cast out of heaven to earth, next thrown into Sheol and the abyss or pit, described in Isaiah 14:15 "But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit.", The grave is called Sheol, within also called Hell, Pit (deepest, darkest), abyss,Gehenna, Hades and others, it remains that here we are told Satan was cast from heaven and next by an angel directly into the 'grave' as Sheol, within the pit which is also called the 'abyss'. The importance of Satan now cast as bound and sealed in the abyss begins as described in Revelation 12:10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down." Paul continues warning that although Satan is now restrained in the abyss he remains as spirit active in the world, this spiritual kingdom described in Eph 2:2 "...of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient." Paul also warning of the time to come when Satan will be released for a short time to conquer and rule over this earth, reminding of this previous teaching in 2 Thessalonians 2:5-8 "Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already (spiritually) at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed... " This strongly indicates that when Christ rescues the last of the living from earth, happening within the 70th week when Satan is released to rule over the earth, after gathering the last saint yet living peace being Christ leaves this earth. Satan then for a short time as ruler shall conquer all that remain on earth, this apparently includes saints described in Rev 3:16-17 "So, because you are lukewarm neither hot nor cold I am about to spit you out of my mouth." Christ as Peace within the very last days will gather the very last saint yet living, Daniel 12 describes these saints remaining faithful 1290 days (first 3-years called the Great Tribulations) reaching 1335 days (into the second 3½-years), these described in Rev 7:14-15 "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." This leaves Satan having already been released as ruler over all of the earth to fulfill the remaining 70th Week prophecy. Satan is not revealed at the very beginning of the 70th week prophecy, eventually revealing himself by declaring himself to be God. Christ had certainly warned of the spiritual forces (Satan, fallen angels, and possessed) now at work on the earth, yet when Satan is released from the abyss to be ruler he will lead all astray of those remaining on earth until Christ in judgment destroys all of the wicked, described in 2 Thessalonians 2:6-8 "For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming." This important assurance was that saints still living that remain faithful during the first half (3½ years or 1290 days) of Satan as ruler over this earth, these faithful will be gathered after remaining faithful into the second part of the 3½ years beyond the Great Tribulations (or 1335 days later), this described in Daniel 12:11-12 "From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days." This remnant of the elect also described in Revelation 7:14 "...These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." These will be the remnant elect yet living gathered into the heavens previous to the Wrath of God and Return of the Lord for final judgment, this we know from verse Romans 5:9-10 "Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!" Within these verses is assurance we need not fear the time of Gods wrath, the saints described above having already been removed from the earth, after this at the Return of the Lord He sends His angels not to earth or Sheol to gather all of the saints, but instead to the heavens gathering all of the saints described in [KJV] Mark 13:26-27 " And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven." Within the Old Testament when these 'four winds' are mentioned, it speaks of the four winds within heaven, being evident that the saints are gathered not yet into Gods Paradise but into the heavens or spiritual realm of this earth, and this to happen before Gods wrath and final judgment. This made more clear in [KJV] Matt 24:30-31 "And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." Here the spiritual place of 'earth' is within the heavens, as described 'one end of the heavens to the other'. There is only one time in the New Testament that these four winds are mentioned on earth, and this is during the prophetic apocalyptic events concerning angels as described in Revelations. Returning to the great falling away or 'Rebellion', this is a sign of the last of end times, after which Christ is revealed. Christ is revealed according to scripture when He is seen coming in the clouds of the sky, this is commonly called the Day or Return of the Lord not to bear sin again, but for final judgment. This rebellion then begins the last generation when during the first 3½ years there remains only a remnant of the chosen or elect still living upon the earth, yet it is during this event God sends or releases a Great Delusion so the generation in rebellion will believe their lie as told in 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 "They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness." What is believed certainly will be their own lies as they serve their father of lies, as seed of their father they do the work of their father, and in wickedness they delight in believing their own lies. The 'Millennium' of Revelation-20 (bellow) is a Latin word found only in the Catholic Vulgate bible, and not found within our English Bibles. The original Greek 'Chilioi' found here is much misunderstood being a complex alpha numeric (number) and not a word, used uniquely in symbolic form, grammatically plural pronounced in the era as 'Thousands'. There also being two separate 'Chilioi' found described within these verses as related to indicate a single 'period' or 'earth age' for these two special events. I would suggest later if question arises that you read about this Thousand/Millennium study and explanation by clicking here.
Some believe the verses above describe God sending a lie, instead it clearly says God is sending one that is a Great Delusion, and each of the deceived will then be able to believe their own lie. Concerning delusion or deceiving of all the nations and people, we should remembered Old Testament scripture describing when last this occurred, when all of the nations and people were deceived into rebellion. Within the New Testament we are now told this will happen again as described in Revelations 20:7-8 "When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth..." But when does this rebellion begin or occur, I believe today we see a man made State of Israel in rebellion of God although fulfilling the prophetic purpose of God, and this foretold in Jeremiah 14:18 "Both prophet and priest have gone to a land they know not." I believe spiritual maturity is needed to discern the signs of the times evident in the man made State of Israel today. About this man made State of Israel under a Zionist government of Zionist Congress (Legislative-Parliamentary-Knesset) and Zionist Supreme Court, scripture describing this egregious fruit is accurately described in Ezekiel 20:32-33 "'You say, "We want to be like the nations, like the peoples of the world, who serve wood and stone." But what you have in mind will never happen.'" How many are aware, atop the Supreme Court building constructed by Rothschild, is also constructed the Rothschild Masonic Pyramid? Jewish religious leaders taught from the Torah that God had imposed three vows upon those scattered among the nations, very important was the first vow that they should not attempt re-establishing Israel in Palestine. History shows that this vow was honored by all for 2000 years, long before Zionist Congress first appeared. However also important is that not all of the chosen fled during the scattering beginning in 70AD, also over the following centuries small Jewish group's formed by various leaders returned to begin a Homeland Settlement, before the Crusades the population was over 300,000. A number of these did fail from natural or economic and religious/political reasons, yet of the many that stayed none ever rebelled by attempting to begin a State of Israel. Some may believe all within the State of Israel today are in rebellion, not so of the devout and religious Jewish within this Homeland living in peace with their Palestinian neighbors. Some at this point will say 'but surely there is a State of Israel today', however forgetting that God is slow to anger, as when God said 'do not eat of the forbidden fruit or you shall surely die'. And so concerning a State of Israel today we are dealing with a prophetic time concerning the Last Rebellious Generation. Concerning a Generation itself, in the Bible from Old to New Testament's are described different period's within which different men live different longevity or lifetime/generation. Methuselah had the greatest longevity of 969 years, there came a time however in mans rebellion that God decreed man would live no longer than 120 years. Since the 120 year decree by God man has lived in periods that a lifetime lasted 30-40 years, increasing in succeeding generations to 80-90 and 100 years, today there are reports of men living to 110-115 years and possibly longer. It appears in this succession that it will not be long before it will be common to hear of men living 120 years, and this I believe is the period of both a literal and figurative or symbolic fulfillment for the Rebellious Generation. This 120 year limit does not mean all mankind will live 120 years, but that man will reach a period or generation when they will be found living 120 years. This prophetic I believe does not relate to Gentile, instead it refers to the Chosen people called Israel, also to a prophetic and symbolic 120 year generation. God does not relate a Rebellious people concerning Covenant to the Gentile people, but always concerns Covenant in relation to the Chosen people. And so I believe this unbelieving or Rebellious Generation will be a sign among the Chosen, although certainly at this time including also the Gentile as either saint or rebel. It is certain the devout chosen within Palestine and many around the world adamantly reject the Zionist State of Israel as a sin against God, and today there is a sign few are aware, the preponderance of population resulting from Zionist immigration into this State are secular in belief and lifestyle. Many believe as during the time of Christ that they will be part of a government ruling over unsaved upon this old order of earth. Instead the prophet Isaiah clearly describes the future creations of a new heavens, new earth, and the creation of Jerusalem where the people are a joy, described in Isaiah 65:17-18 "Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy." The Bible leaves little doubt these are new creations and not the old as greatly destroyed being refurbished or rebuilt.
In the last days the Bible tells of an Israel, it does not say in this Israel are the scattered that God has regathered into new covenant and for eternity. Scripture does give important advice about this land yet of this earthage (I believe symbolically called Jerusalem), warning when Gog and Magog armies surround it, saying in Luke 21:20-22 "When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written."
