The key to working out last days prophecy!
This key will unravel all the end-time confusion about the Antichrist and his destructive post Rapture rule on the earth.
Many people believe there will be Rapture just prior to a time of terror on earth. This terror will supposedly be more horrible than anything previously known. It will be brought on the world by a Satanic world ruler, a human Antichrist figure, who will rule from a newly rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. Well, that's the belief..
But what if this time of terror doesn't exit?
What if there is no time of terror? What if the need for Christians to be physically 'raptured' isn't real? What if all those end-time predictions of Satanic destruction are wrong? What if there is no Satanic destruction?
How can we check?
The wolf will live with the lamb; the leopard will lie down with goat; the calf, young lion and fatling will be together, and a little child will lead them. (Is.11:6)
Since Biblical scholars can't seem to agree, why don't we ask a little child?
Teacher: Who does the lamb on throne represent?
Teacher: How do we know it's Jesus?
Child: Because he died on the cross.
Teacher: What does God give to the Lamb?
Child: A scroll.
Teacher: Who opens the scroll?
Teacher: What happens when he opens it?
Child: Horses come out, people get sick, fish die, stars fall out of the sky, there is a big earthquake and then the world ends.
Teacher: Will any of this happen if Jesus keeps the scroll closed?
Teacher: So who do you think is in charge of all the things that happen?
Teacher: Some people say Satan is in charge of all these things – is that true?
Teacher: Why wouldn't Satan be in charge?
Child: He hasn't got the scroll.
I wept and wept for no one was found worthy open the scroll or look inside. (Rev.5:4)
Then I saw a lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the centre of the throne.(Rev.5:6)
He went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne.(Rev.5:7)
Worthy are you to take the scroll and open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased priests to serve our God. (Rev.5:9-10)
To believe Satan is in charge of all the plague, famine and sword curses which come from the scroll in the hand of Christ, we have to believe God has taken the scroll of judgment out of Christ's hand and given it to Satan. Did this happen? No!
We also have to believe Satan, along with Christ, was found worthy by God to receive the scroll; and we have to believe Satan, not Christ, opened it and called forth the four horsemen to begin the judgments. Did that happen? No! Is it likely to happen? No!
It's dangerous to exult Satan, for attributing the works of God to Satan is blasphemy!
I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. (Rev.6:1)
It is Jesus, the Lamb of God, the only one in heaven found worthy to open the scroll of judgment, who opens every seal on the scroll, one at a time.
Satan has nothing to do with it!
The only role Satan has in these judgments, is to be judged by Christ and thrown into the lake of fire. As for a human Antichrist, well, there is no mention. In fact, the word 'antichrist' is not written at all in the Book of Revelation.
To believe Satan's Antichrist will bring the curses written in the Book of Revelation down hard upon the world, we have to remove all of Chapter 5 of the Book of Revelation which shows that scenario is totally impossible.
To believe Christ is so afraid of Satan he has to swoop down and rapture his bride out of harms way before Satan's Antichrist takes control of the earth is profound and absolute blasphemy.
What do I believe?
I believe Jesus Christ is the only end-time leader appointed by God to be ruler over all the kings of the earth during the last days. (Rev.1:5)
I believe Jesus Christ is the only one found worthy to bring the end-time judgments, written in the Book of Revelation, to the earth. (Rev.5)
I believe the government is on Christ's shoulders and he will reign for ever and ever.
The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever. (Rev.11:15)
The key to understanding end-time judgment is in Chapter 5 of the Book of Revelation! If we simply believe what is written, we will never be deceived by false end-time teaching!
Jesus Christ is KING, forever!

The Book of Revelation holds the greatest hope and the greatest promise mankind has ever known.
When all the false teaching is removed from this wonderful end-time prophecy, what is left is the original blessing, given by Christ, for the encouragement of his beautiful bride, his redeemed, whom he has just bled and died for.
This book places Satan firmly under Christ’s feet. It explains how all the wonderful images of Revelation, including ‘the beast’ and ‘666’ glorify Christ, how safe and protected his bride is from the tribulation of the last days, and why the scary end-time predictions of Satanic power on earth can never happen.
