D12 - The Great and Dreadful Day of the Lord

  Detestable Last 30 year

Malachi 4:5-6  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse."
   Before that dreadful day, Elijah must come back to turn the hearts of the children to their fathers. This was fulfilled by the coming of John the Baptist as Elijah and this was confirmed again and again by our Lord Jesus (Mat 11:14, 17:12, Mark 9:13).
Luke 1:16-17  "And he (John the Baptist) will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, 'to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,' and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
Devout Jews were Saved
Luke 1:76-77  "And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest; for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways, to give knowledge of salvation to His people by the remission of their sins,
    Once a Jew repents and keeps the Mosaic law, he will be able to know and understand the salvation provided by our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of his sins.
John 5:46  "For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. "

Priesthood knew Jesus was the Messiah
Mark 12:6-7  Therefore still having one son, his beloved, he also sent him to them last, saying, 'They will respect my son.' But those vinedressers said among themselves, 'This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.'
   The Jewish Priesthood knew that Jesus the Son of God was sent by the Father to be their Messiah. Out of the fear of man (Roman) and the loss of their highly respected positions, these faithless Jewish leaders denied their Messiah and shed innocent blood by convincing the Jews to crucify Jesus as the false Messiah.
John 11:48  "If we let Him alone like this, everyone will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation."

"Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse."
Mat 27:23, 25  Then the governor said, "Why, what evil has He done?" But they cried out all the more, saying, "Let Him be crucified!" ...And all the people answered and said, "His blood be on us and on our children."
The great and dreadful Day of the Lord for the Jews was the Day they cursed themselves, crucified their Messiah, shed innocent blood and denied the Word was made flesh. Immediately, YHWH left and destroyed the temple of God thereby making the Old Covenant (Judaism) obsolete.
   Only the new covenant of the blood of Jesus for the salvation of all mankind can save them.
Mat 27:50-51  And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,  

Synagogue of Satan
1 John 4:2-3  By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
    After the Jews had rejected Jesus as the Word made flesh, their God is no longer the triune YHWH but the Antichrist or Satan. Their synagogues are called the synagogue of Satan
    Christians must not participate in any of the Jewish feasts, celebrations or functions, otherwise they may lose their salvation for worshipping Satan or the Antichrist.
Rev 3:9a  "Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—

D11 - YHWH the Triune Godhead

  'Detestable Last 30 years'

Triune Godhead Revealed
1 John 5:7  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three (Trinity) are one. (KJV)
   The Lord God Almighty who created the heavens and the earth known as YHWH (Yahweh, Jehovah, Elohim) the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob is One. He reveals Himself to man as the Triune Godhead, so that we can appreciate and learn from the perfect love displayed in the harmonious relationships of the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit.
Isa 48:16  "Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, I was there. And now the Lord God and His Spirit have sent Me."

Trinity in Creation
Gen 1:2-3  The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
    In the OT, we can see the Triune Godhead working together in Genesis as the Spirit of God, the Father (God) and the spoken Word of God.
Gen 1:26a  Then God said, "Let Us (Trinity) make man in Our (Trinity) image, according to Our (Trinity) likeness; "

Mat 28:19  "Go therefore  and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,"
    After the Word was made flesh at the first advent of Jesus, God reveals Himself as 3 persons in the Triune Godhead - the Father, the Son (Word) and the Holy Spirit (Helper) so that we can learn from Him how to be a loving father, an obedient son and a helper or comforter to others.

Father's Love and Protection
   From the OT, we have a fair knowledge of His attributes of love, mercy, provision, delivery, salvation, teaching, protection, healing, comfort and care.
    A good, holy and faithful Father whose unfailing love and great patience blesses His children by teaching and helping them to reject and overcome sin, walk in righteousness, live in holiness and partake of Jesus' sufferings until they achieve perfection.
    Whoever comprehends and practices God's perfect love, he too will be able to find the unity and harmony within his own family and also in the family of God.
    From the OT, many cannot understand God, who seemed cruel and unreasonable for wiping out many nations, till we see Jesus protecting His people from being destroyed by deceptions, idolatry and abominable practices of the wolves and the wicked.
    For Jesus cursed the depraved and covetous Jewish leaders who were wolves in sheepskin and hypocrites for they were the devil's agents out to destroy the faith of His people and lead them to damnation.
Note remove all wolves from your chat groups and churches.
Mat 23:13-14  "But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in."

Jesus as the Son
Phi 2:5,8  Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus... And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
    As Son, Jesus obeyed the Father even in the horrific death on the cross.
    Similar, as God's children, we must obey Him by keeping His commandments.

Holy Spirit as the Helper
John 14:15-17a  "If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth...
    God sent the Spirit of truth as a Helper to teach and guide us into all truth so that we are free from all worldly fears and bondages, and to help us overcome the deceptions and temptations of the evil one.
John 16:13-14  "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come."

D10 - Complete Fulfilment of the Law

  'Detestable Last 30 years'
Mat 5:17  "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill."
    Jesus Christ was sinless at birth for He was the Word made flesh. For Him to fulfil the Law, He must first of all be the perfect sacrifice.

1. Jesus the Perfect Sacrifice
a) Jesus was born in an animal shed meant for cattle, sheep, chicken and other animals
    Though Jesus was born a man, yet God wanted Him to be the perfect sacrificial animal (Lamb of God).
b) Covered in swaddling cloths
   All newly born clean animals suitable for sacrifices are wrapped with swaddling cloths to prevent them from blemishes.
    He was the perfect sacrifice for all clean animals and birds used for sacrifices.
c) In the manger
   The manger is used to hold the produce of the land (cereals, herbs and fruits) to feed the animals.
    He was the perfect vegetation (meat) offering (cereals, olive oil, myrrh, frankincense and bread) to God.

2. Jesus the Sinless Jew
    Jesus kept the Law and submitted to John the Baptist, the last OT prophet. He led a sinless life.

3. Fulfilled the Sabbath
   Jesus was the Lord of the Sabbath and in Him, the Sabbath is fulfilled.

4. Fulfilled the Feasts
A) Feast of Unleavened bread
i)  Jesus was killed on Day of Passover
  After sacrificing the Passover Lamb, all Jews must keep the Feast of the Unleavened bread for seven days.
ii) Jesus was the Bread of life (unleavened bread)

B) The Feast of Weeks
i) Jesus was the first-fruit of resurrection (first-fruit of the land)
ii) On the fiftieth day after His resurrection was Pentecost, where 3,000 devout Jews became Christians (harvest)

C) Seventh Month Feast
i) Jesus' birth was heralded with the angelic hosts blowing of trumpet (blowing of trumpet on the first day)
ii) Jesus was crucified on the cross for the atonement of their sins (Day of atonement on the tenth day)
iii) After Jesus' resurrection, He gave the Holy Spirit to dwell in the physical bodies of His disciples (Feast of Tabernacle starting on the 15th Day)
Note God dwelled in the tabernacle in the wilderness
  The physical body of every Christian is the new temple of God - replacing the cold solid Jewish Temple.
iv) Jesus was glorified into the new incorruptible glorious body (8th day of feast signifying the eighth Millennium - the beginning of the incorruptible and glorious New Heaven and the New Earth.

5. New Commandment
John 13:34  A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
    He replaced the Old commandments with a higher order of sacrificial love for one another - to love one's enemies instead of hating them.
Mat 5:43-44  "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,"

6. Everlasting Ordinances
Exo 12:14   'So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance.'
    In the Old Covenant there were many sacrifices, feasts and Sabbaths with everlasting ordinances.
     Our eternal Lord Jesus Himself fulfilled this everlasting ordinances in the law so that every Jew converted to Christianity has not sinned for he too has fulfilled all these ordinances in Christ Jesus.
Brethren, Judaism was made obsolete two thousand years ago when our Lord God Almighty destroyed the temple when He left it (temple veil was torn in two). Without the temple of God, the Jews were no longer able to make sacrifices nor keep the feasts nor keep the Law. Anyone who tries to observe any part of the Law is cursed.
Gal 3:10  For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them."
  Unfortunately, the Judaizers, trying to be 'holier than thou', are partially keeping the Law and they are not aware that damnation awaits them.

D9 - Keeping the Sukkot or Feast of Tabernacles

  'Detestable Last 30 years'

Lev 23:34,41  "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord.... You shall keep it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month.
    As long as there is an Israelite alive, he will be able to observe the law, keep the feasts and offer sacrifices in the temple of God since this is His everlasting ordinance with the Israelites.
   Recently many Christians sacrificed much in  celebrating the Sukkot in Israel and zealous Christians also celebrated Sukkot in cell groups and churches.

Are the sacrifices of these zealous Christians (Judaizers) acceptable to our Lord?

Jews Rejected the Messiah
Mat 27:23, 25  Then the governor said, "Why, what evil has He done?" But they cried out all the more, saying, "Let Him be crucified!" ...And all the people answered and said, "His blood be on us and on our children."
1. The faithless and wicked Jewish leaders convinced the Jews to reject and crucify Jesus for masquerading as the Messiah.
2. All the Jews were willing to accept damnation for themselves and their descendants in shedding the innocent blood of Jesus.
    So our righteous God had no other choice but to terminate His covenant with these rebellious Jews. At the death of Jesus, God left the temple of God thereby obsoleting the old covenant.

Why did Jesus fulfill the Law and not destroy it?
Mat 5:17  "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill."
    Since Jesus the Son of God had fulfilled the Law and the Prophet, then all the Israelites (Jews), who have believed and accepted Him as their Messiah and Saviour, have not broken the Law for they too in Christ Jesus have kept the Law, which is their everlasting ordinance.

Sins of the Judaizers
Gal 5:4  You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.
    Any Christian who still keeps any part of the Law has not believed that Jesus had fulfilled the Law and the Prophets and thereby reduced our Lord Jesus to be a liar and a sinner.
   If Jesus is a sinner, then our sins cannot be cleansed by His blood and the gospel of His grace is reduced to a lie.

Keeping of Law Forbidden
Act 15:1  And certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, "Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved."
   God called Paul (Saul) of Tarsus, a Pharisee and a devout Jew to be the Apostle to the Gentiles. He was bold, fearless and faithful to God's words. He showed extreme zeal in his mission to arrest Christians, whom the Jewish leadership considered as deviant or heretic.
  Having known that salvation is by grace for both Jews and Gentiles, he stood firm on the word of God. He rejected the unbiblical commands of some leaders to circumcise the new Gentile converts.

Condemnation of Judaizers
Acts 15:28-29  For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality.  If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well.   Farewell.
Note - the above is the Noahic covenant (Gen 9:3-4)
   The Council of elders in Jerusalem forbade new converts to observe the Jewish laws, feasts, beliefs, culture, practices, etc. which our Lord Jesus had fulfilled at His death and resurrection otherwise they will fall from His grace and await damnation.
    Today, Judaizers are practiced in the Hebrew Roots Movement. They have rebelled against the words of God and the Jerusalem Council's command from God. Unless these Judaizers repent, damnation awaits them.

D8 - Pope proposes to bless the abominable Same Sex Marriage

  Detestable Last 30 years

VATICAN CITY October 3, 2023 — Pope Francis has suggested there could be ways to bless same-sex unions,
   The Pope rejected the sound biblical advice of the 5 Cardinals by submitting to the demonic UN Human Rights of the mighty West in permitting the Priests to bless same sex marriages in the Catholic church.

The New Testament Church
Mat 16:18  "And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it."
    Apostle Peter, the fisherman was appointed by our Lord Jesus to build His church. St Peter Basilica in Vatican City was one of the holiest sites of Christianity and Catholic Tradition, it is traditionally the burial site of its titular, St. Peter, who was one of the twelve Apostles of Jesus and, according to tradition, the first Bishop of Antioch and later the first Bishop of Rome, rendering him the first Pope.
   Vatican City is a sovereign state located within Rome. Rome was the centre of Christianity after the destruction of Jerusalem. The church witnessed the conversion of nearly the entire Europe to Christianity. Sadly, heresies and the worship of Mary defiled the Catholic Church. The Pope then reigned over Christian kings during the period of Inquisition, where many churches were serving Satan with idolatry.
    Today, the Pope no longer controls the world. In his stead, the US has replaced Rome with its wealth and power. US churches were the champion of Christianity in the last century so much so that the gospel was spread far and wide. Contrastingly, in these few decades, they have committed many abominations which are sins leading to death. They blaspheme the Holy Spirit, reduce the bible to history or myths, commit sodomy, legalized gay marriage, and teach heresies.

2 The 2:3  Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day (Rapture) will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition
     Since US President Bill Clinton brokered the PLO-Israel Peace Treaty in 1993 (30 years ago) and his approval of homosexuality, the West (former Christian nations) led by the US has fallen away to become nations of Satan and the antichrist.

Fear of the Administration
John 11:47-48  Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said, "What shall we do? For this Man works many signs. If we let Him alone like this, everyone will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation."
    Unfortunately, most of the church leaders in the West (just like the Jews feared the Romans and killed their Messiah), feared the demonic laws of the administration and accepted homosexuality thereby killing His church by destroying their faith and salvation. Christians, today, find it difficult to live in the West by the constant indoctrination of homosexuality upon their children as well.
    With the Pope usurping God's words by approving the abominable homosexuality and same sex marriage, millions upon millions Catholics will be condemned to damnation.
1 Cor 6:9-10  Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

D7 - Since World War 3 is just round the corner, what must a Christian do?

   Detestable Last 30 years

Since US President Bill Clinton brokered the PLO-Israel Peace Treaty in 1993 (30 years ago) and his approval of homosexuality, the West (former Christian nations) led by the US has fallen away to become nations of the antichrist and Satan.

1 Pet 4:7-8  But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins."
    In the last days when we come before God in prayer we must be
1. Be Serious for it is a matter of life and salvation or death and damnation. Check your faith against the Apostles Creed whether you are the wheat or the tare for many so-called Christians have believed wrongly the watered down and heretic gospel.
2. Be Watchful of the times and seasons, fulfillments of each prophecy, and what God expects of us.
3. fervent love for one another

1. Be Serious - life and death
   From the Apostles Creed, have you believed:-
i) the Trinity or Triune Godhead.
1 John 5:7  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
   God is one. He reveals Himself to men as 3 persons in the Triune Godhead - the Father, the Word (Son) and the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) so that we can learn from Him to be a loving father and an obedient son.

ii) the Gospel of Christ
I Cor 15:3-5  For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
    Have you believed the Gospel that :-
a) Jesus was the Christ or the Word (God) made flesh
b) Jesus died on the cross pouring out His blood for the cleansing of your sins
c) Jesus was buried but on the third day He rose from the dead and
d) He gave the Holy Spirit of redemption to dwell within all those who believe the Gospel thereby making them to become born again Christians.
If you have not believed the above i)Trinity and ii) Gospel, then you may be in danger of not being born again nor saved. Repent and confess your belief of the true Gospel (Apostles' Creed) to the Lord.

2. Be Watchful - coming End-time signs and events

i) Coming WW3 will kill all the tares. Rest of mankind will suffer greatly from wounds, diseases, hunger, and fear but they will find salvation in the care of faithful Christians (wheat). These wheat having the truth of the Gospel, Jesus' commandments and end-time events will teach and prepare the new converts to become the bride of the Lamb by overcoming the deceptions of the Antichrist.

ii) Period of Tribulations
    During this period of about 4 years, the temple of Antichrist will be built. The mark of the beast (666) will be available. Thank God that He will nourish His faithful children, who have not taken the mark 666.
Rev 12:6  Then the woman (wheat) fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days (42 months).

iii) Period of Great Tribulations
    At the dedication of the temple of God, the Antichrist will appear at the mercy seat declaring himself as god. Many will be deceived to worship him as god.

iv) Rapture when the Lord will come in the cloud to collect His saints back to heaven.

3. fervent love for one another
John 13:34-35  A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
    To be a disciple of Jesus, we must love one another as He had loved us. We have been commissioned by our Lord Jesus to make disciples of all nations by teaching them to observe all His commandments.
Mat 28:19-20  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

D6 - End-time Harvest of Tares

  Detestable Last 30 years

Since US President Bill Clinton brokered the PLO-Israel Peace Treaty in 1993 (30 years ago) and his approval of homosexuality, the West (former Christian nations) led by the US has fallen away to become nations of the antichrist and Satan.

Mat 13:24-26  Another parable He put forth to them, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.
   After World War 2, US sent out the most church leaders to evangelize (sow good seed) the world. By the 60s, US was already the richest and most respected and powerful nation.
    US President Kennedy was highly respected and loved. So when he (enemy of God) took the bible and prayers from the public school and administration and introduced the abominable human rights, Christians blindly (sleeping) accepted them.
    Immediately, the West without the truth of His word resorts to the worldly wisdom (sensual and demonic) making them become tares.
James 3:15  This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.

Sprouting of the Tares
   30 years after God killed Kennedy, US President Clinton brokered the abominable PLO Peace Treaty (sprouting of tares), the UN including Christian nations approved this abomination. However, some godly and knowledgeable pastors (good seed) rejected the treaty and warned Christians of its demonic deception.

Mat 13:29-30  But he said, 'No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn."
    Since the abominable Peace treaty in 1993, God did not kill the tares (heretic, arrogant, depraved, covetous, popular and powerful Christian leaders) but allowed them to grow.
2 Pet 2:3  By covetousness they (tares) will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

Truthless Christians
   2 The 2:10  and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
    Lazy, ungodly and faithless Christians, who do not read the bible nor love His truth by abiding in Jesus' words, will easily be deceived to become tares.
   In the last days, God will first harvest the tares. He will use World War 3, the last war before Rapture, to kill all these tares (carnal, faithless, abominable, depraved and heretic Christian leaders) and send them to the fire of Hades before He begins His greatest end-time harvest of souls (wheat).

Jesus Ministry at 30
Luke 3:23a  Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age,
    Our Lord Jesus began His ministry at the age of 30 (the minimum age for any Levite to serve in the temple of God).
   The sprouting of tares was in 1993, which was 30 years ago. If, 30 years is good enough for the tares to mature, then Jesus will use the soon coming World War 3 to begin the judgment of His Christian leaders and church and then the rest of the world?
1 Pet 4:17  For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God.

So-called Christians (tares) killed in WW3
Mat 13:40-42  Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend and those who practice lawlessness and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
