Re: Amy VanGerpen (10 Dec 2011) "For those that believe that Jesus will return in 2015"
"For those that discount the widely held belief in a 7 year covenant that is made with Israel in Daniel 9, how do you reconcile these verses that clearly state that during the global destruction (aka Tribulation) that Israel will make a "covenant with death" because they believe it will make them safe? Sounds like a peace treaty to me."
Isaiah 28:14 ...hear the word of the LORD, you scornful men, Who rule this people who are in Jerusalem, Because you have said, "We have made a covenant with death, And with Sheol we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, It will not come to us, For we have made lies our refuge, And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves."
Isaiah 28:18 & 22 Your covenant with death will be annulled, And your agreement with Sheol will not stand; When the overflowing scourge passes through, Then you will be trampled down by it... Now therefore, do not be mockers, Lest your bonds be made strong; For I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts, A destruction determined even upon the whole earth.
It's actually a security agreement:
On June 11, 2009, Israel made a security treaty with the EU. It has not been "confirmed" yet.
It's the 3rd one down, with the asterix.
2300 days (Daniel 8:14) from 6-11-9 is September 28, 2015, Sukkot. http://www.timeanddate.com/date/dateadded.html?m1=06&d1=11&y1=2009&type=add&ay=&am=&ad=2300&aw=
6-11-9 plus 1290 days (Daniel 12:11) is when the abomination of desolation is set up, on Saturday, 12-22-12. This is a reference to the winter, Sabbath day from Matt 24:
20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
This Israel/ EU agreement indicates the antichrist is probably Prince William, who will sign/ confirm the covenant in the middle of the 7 year tribulation.
On 6-15-09, Prince William confirmed his covenant with the Royal Order of the Garter. 6-15-09 + 1290 days is 12-26-12, Wednesday (breaks the covenant with God in the middle of the week). The Order was founded in 1348. 1348 plus 666 years is 2014.
As for Obama's TV spot indicating he was making a covenant with the many, he is indeed a false Christ/ prophet, but not the antichrist. I wish people would understand that the people ruling the world are Satanists that are in full knowledge of their fulfillment of prophecies. They are actively fulfilling prophecies as rituals to bring about the antichrist. Due to certain prophecies not being clear, often times they will perform "redundant rituals" – the false prophet getting antichrist prophetic fulfillment and vice versa. The October 29, 2008 TV spot was a Satanic "redundant" ritual fulfillment of prophecy.
The US is the false prophet and as such, Obama is currently the false prophet (because Satanists are very literal in fulfilling prophecies, I believe Herman Cain will be the true False Prophet in charge of the monetary system and enforcement of the worship of the antichrist – Cain will hand out the "mark of Cain" /mark of protection to Satan's followers.) When we look at Daniel 6
24And the king commanded, and those men who had maliciously accused Daniel were brought and cast into the den of lions—they, their children, and their wives. And before they reached the bottom of the den, the lions overpowered them and broke all their bones in pieces.
25Then King Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: "Peace be multiplied to you. 26 I make a decree, that in all my royal dominion people are to tremble and fear before the God of Daniel,
for he is the living God,
his kingdom shall never be destroyed,
and his dominion shall be to the end.
27He delivers and rescues;
he works signs and wonders
in heaven and on earth,
he who has saved Daniel
from the power of the lions."
28So this Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
We can see a template for the false prophet here in King Cyrus and a template of antichrist in Daniel.
The whore of Babylon/ apostate church of Babylon is ruled by the antichrist (the Jewish messiah king ruling Israel) and the King of Babylon is the False Prophet, ruler of the land and monetary system that enforces the worship of the antichrist's god.
