Psalm 78:49-50. (7) He cast upon them the fierceness of (7) his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by (5) sending evil angels among them. (7) He made a way to his anger; (7) he spared not their soul from death, but (7) gave their life over to the pestilence.
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 (7) And then shall that Wicked be revealed [Man of Lawlessness, Son of Perdition, Beast, 8th King, Prince, First Rider / White Horseman, Antichrist], whom the Lord shall (7) consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall (7) destroy with the brightness of his coming [Christs second physical coming to earth at the end of the Great Tribulation]: Even him, whose coming (7) is after the working of Satan with (7) all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all (7) deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they (7) received not the love of the truth, that (7) they might be saved. And for this (7) cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that (5) they should believe a lie: That they all might (7) be damned who believed not the truth, (5) but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (Emphasis added, mine.)
These seven (7) verses indicate that a ‘strong delusion’ will be sent to men sometime during the seven (7) year tribulation. We know this because the first three (3) verses deal with the time period when the Holy Spirit (that holds evil at bay) is removed from the world and the ‘wicked’ man of sin or lawlessness rises up on the world stage. Verse 8 indicates that this is the same wicked man that will be destroyed at Christ’s physical, second coming to earth at the very last day of the seven (7) year tribulation. Men, during the seven (7) year tribulation are deceived because they don’t love the truth God gave mankind in the form of Jesus Christ.
They are deceived spiritually (mystery religion) and are unrighteous (not saved) and perish because of this. They don’t want anything to do with the truth offered to them by Christ’s salvation. They deny Christ and his offer of salvation. They don’t love the truth (Christ) and the whole idea of needing salvation. They don’t want to be saved and don’t like the idea of having to be saved. They have pleasure (joy) in following their own false religions, practices and hedonistic joys and are damned because they forcefully and willingly reject Christ.
As such, God will send them a ‘strong delusion’ (fallen angels in the deluded guise or form of ‘aliens’). There is nothing new under the sun. Fallen angels existed before the creation of mankind, and have worked for Satan, ever since his fall, into deceiving men over the course of many ancient civilizations (on into this current epoch.) God sent Christ to save mankind. Men reject Christ. God sends fallen angels to damn men. Men accept fallen angels (aliens). Men die. Simple. It is not a great mystery, as some would believe or think impossible.
Revelation 12:7-12 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. [‘Angels’ are referenced three – 3 times, emphasis and intensity. Yes, there are evil, fallen angels, sons of God, or ‘Watchers.’)
The Coming ‘Strong Delusion’. Same ‘Lie or Delusions’ for 6,000 (6) years and during EVERY EPOCH, including the coming seven (7) year tribulation. ‘Because they love not the truth or the word of God, God will send among them a ‘strong or great delusion’ so they can be damned.’
A short Biblical (7) look at (5) ‘Fallen Angels / sons of God:’
There is no such thing as ‘aliens.’ Fallen angels in defiled, false, counterfeit, deceptive, grotesque satanic flesh appear as ‘aliens.’ Satan has made a mockery of ‘the imagers (human body) of God’ by attempting to duplicate God’s created body of man into a defiled, unclean, fleshly form that is a sick imager of Satan. Different ‘caste or ranking’ of angels manifest in different physical defiled forms. Just as the human spirit must dwell in flesh to exist in the physical world, some lower rankings of the demonic spirit realm must dwell in defiled flesh to exist in the physical world or physical dimension outside of the spiritual dimension. Once holy and bright in spiritual appearance, fallen angels are now grotesque, ugly and dark because of iniquity (just like Satan) and manifest as such. They now represent the likeness of Satan and some of his attributes, including lies, deception, advanced knowledge and a willingness to accept the ‘worship’ of men (as in antiquity). These particular ‘fallen angels’ in Satan’s army are the ‘foot soldiers’ who work on demand and at the bidding of Satan and/or other fallen angels in higher orders. They are the ‘lowest’ of the angelic realm in terms of rank, power, attributes, exercising of will and influence over men. They do NOT have power or influence over nations, states, cities, weather or other aspects of God’s physical creation (higher ‘ranking’ fallen angels carry out these functions). They carry out the ‘grunt’ work of Satan’s master plan. In Satan’s plan, those fallen angels (believed to be ‘aliens’) are sent to deceive men (a ‘great or strong delusion’).
Men want to believe in aliens, are lustful of advanced technology and knowledge for military purposes, and are ‘deluded’ into thinking that aliens are here to save them (or at least to offer them ‘help’) in tackling the various crisis occurring over the seven (7) year tribulation. The idea or belief that aliens could really be something entirely evil, biblically speaking, is ‘preposterous’ to men. To those who do not love the truth, God will send a ‘strong delusion.’ The fallen angels come, not as man’s saviors, but for man’s destruction. Only Christ saves men spiritually and physically. Aliens are a lie or a delusion that men lustily believe in because they don’t want to believe the truth about this particular aspect of God’s creation that rebelled against the established order of created, spiritual beings. Yet, God still is in control of His creation, even over the fallen angels and Satan. God can, and does, use fallen angels to carry out His will, depending on His purpose. ‘A broken tool can still have some use.’
Rankings of both Holy and Fallen Angels (Highest to Lowest). Fallen angels were once holy angels, until they rebelled with Lucifer/Satan against God and His established order:
Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time (5) past ye walked according to (5) the course of this world, (5) according to the prince of (5) the power of the air [Satan, Dragon, Devil] (5) the spirit that now worketh (5) in the children of disobedience:
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle (5) not against flesh and blood, (5) but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of (5) the darkness of this world, against (5) spiritual wickedness in high places.
Romans 8:38 For I (7) am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor (5) angels, nor principalities, nor powers, (7) nor things present, nor things to come,
Ephesians 3:10 To the intent (5) that now unto the principalities (5) and powers in heavenly places might be known by (7) the church the manifold wisdom of God,

Colossians 2:15 And (5) having spoiled principalities and powers, (7) he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

The Coming U.F.O. Disclosure.
Jeff Monday, May 15, 2017 UNSEALED.ORG
English speakers have forged the term “godsend” to use in situations whenever someone receives a sudden, unexpected blessing or gift at just the right time. While having mostly a positive connotation, it’s not usually spoken of in a negative sense…that is until one considers 2 Thessalonians 2:11:
For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false” (HCSB).
Now here’s an interesting turn of phrase—God sends a strong delusion to those who are perishing in order to believe what is false. Yes, many who are left behind after our departure (2 Thess. 2:1, 3) will welcome the coming lawless one as heaven-sent…a true godsend.
Piggybacking off of Gary’s post last month and many others who have focused their efforts on exposing the alien (extra-terrestial) deception and UFO phenomenon, I will add my two cents and incorporate some passages of Scripture that, hopefully, will shed further light on this pertinent end-times topic.
Intergalactic vs. Interdimensional War
As many alert, perceptive believers have noticed, the prince (5) and ruler of this world (Jn. 14:30; Eph. 2:2) has bombarded the masses with extra-terrestrial ideas and movie plot lines driven by the usual premise—the earth is in grave danger from either an inside or outside threat; alien saviors arrive just in time to help mankind; sometimes they are good…sometimes bad. On and on it goes, through film, books, television, and, especially, video games. My goodness, the video games. Do you know what you’re children are watching/playing/absorbing and then adopting into their worldview?
Even the New York Times has decided that the exponential rise of UFO sightings is “news that’s fit to print” (see here). Almost daily I spot a headline where NASA has found new planets that have potential for intelligent life. And wouldn’t you know it, in a year where many of us are expecting the Lord to do the unexpected in 2017, Ridley Scott is at it again this month with Alien: Covenant. How odd…how fitting a title given what many of us expect coming soon in the form of a deceptive covenant of peace between Israel and the nations.
Much of the world is primed now to welcome extra-terrestrial saviors. In the aftermath of the resurrection/rapture of the body of Christ, the spiritual vacuum created will open the door for desperate people to make desperate attempts at peace and security. One of the trailblazers in exposing the alien deception and sounding the alarm has been L.A. Marzulli. If you have been following him, you might have heard him say once or twice, “When we go up, they show up. When we go up, they come down” (see here). I think he’s spot on.
Before the unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ to the world, there will be another unveiling…a disclosure of another sort. Contrary to the lies and anti-biblical agendas being promoted by academia, mass media, and a number of alien enthusiasts, these beings that show up to save the day will not be extra-terrestrials from another galaxy; they are inter-dimensional beings—rebellious angels who are going to be kicked out of heaven and thrown down to earth…
Revelation 12 Sets the Stage
We go up. They come down. Here at Unsealed we have written numerous articles concerning this amazing chapter in the book of Revelation. This chapter really sets the stage for the end-times and reveals all the major players, including the body of Christ being “birthed” and raptured up to the Father’s house (Rev. 12:5). However, a word of caution: In regard to the timing of events—even the literal signs in the sky—we need to acknowledge the overlapping style of John’s visions and not try to strain out a gnat when we read the chapter, verse-by-verse.
For example, Revelation 12:5 comes immediately before 12:6, and verse 6 is immediately before verses 7 through 12. The timing of these events is not strictly sequential in order. There appears to be overlap between the catching up of the male-child in 12:5 and the outbreak of war in heaven in 12:7-12 (another layer/overlap occurs with 12:6 and 12:13-17). Israel’s hideout in the wilderness, we know from other passages of Scripture, occurs during the middle-to-latter half of the Tribulation. According to Isa. 66:7-8, we know that the timing of our departure comes before Israel’s labor pains (see Gary’s post). So, don’t be discouraged, for instance, if you haven’t hammered out all the details regarding the sign of the dragon (Rev. 12:3-4); the uncertainty surrounding this particular sign should take nothing away from the immense significance (7) of the great sign appearing on September 23, 2017!
Ok. Now then, I got to get back on track. We go up, they come down. According to the overlap mentioned above in 12:5 and 12:7-12, our departure and arrival to God’s throne appears to coincide with the expulsion of Satan and his entourage of rogue angels. In a few words, “…there was no (7) place for them in heaven any longer” (Rev. 12:8).
Hmmm…what could possibly tip the scales this time around, when Michael and his angels are able to fight and prevail over Satan and his angels? Could it be the presence of the newly glorified Church, an army of believers who had just been resurrected, transformed, and transferred to heaven? I think so. Consider also the conspicuous absence of the accuser in the throne room scene in chapters 4 and 5 of Revelation, whereas in visions past, the adversary is an ever-present antagonist in God’s heavenly court (Job 1:6-12; Zech. 3:1-4).
Let’s look at a few other Old Testament passages that reveal the true identity of these fallen “alien saviors” who will deceive earth-dwellers after the Rapture.
O’ How the Mighty Have Fallen!
First, we’ll start with Psalm 82, and while we’re at it, I’ll also plug Dr. Michael Heiser’s book The Unseen Realm. He has done a great service to the body of Christ by writing this book. For one, unlike most pastors and scholars, he doesn’t break out in hives and run for the hills when asked about Genesis 6:1-4. Coming from the academic arena, he has opened the door for many other Christians who were once skeptical of the so-called “fringe groups” within the Church. You know, those who keep yammering on about Nephilim, Watchers, and the book of Enoch.
If you aren’t going to get his book, then please just read the first couple of chapters (here). He shares a personal testimony of having his eyes opened and world rocked upon reading Psalm 82:1 one day before church. Consequently, he discovered that any interpretation that denies that God [Hebrew, elohim] is holding court and judging among “the gods” [Hebrew, elohim] suppresses the truth and strips the passage of its supernatural, heavenly context.
Sure, Psalm 82 is uncomfortable for those who rigidly hold to an anti-supernatural bias, or perhaps they don’t want to be accused of teaching polytheism. But as Heiser indicates throughout his book, we shouldn’t be protected from our Bibles, explaining away difficult passages in favor of those that fit into our tidy theological systems. As good students of the Word, we need to let the Bible be the Bible and seek to understand the Scriptures in its original and cultural context.
Ok. If you are on board with Psalm 82 describing a scene in heaven, where our Triune God is issuing judgment on “gods,” or heavenly beings also called elohim, then I want to focus on verses 6 and 7. Concerning these two verses, Heiser writes:
A quick read of Psalm 82 informs us that God has called this council meeting to judge the elohim for corrupt rule of the nations. Verse 6 of the psalm declares that these elohim are sons of God. God says to them: I have said, ‘You are gods [elohim], and sons of the Most High [beney elyon], all of you” (pg. 27).
(5) Corrupt rule of the nations? Where is this idea coming from? Check out Deuteronomy 32:8-9, especially the ESV or NET versions (also the LXX). I’m sorry to burst any bubbles here, but other English translations get this one flat-out wrong. Verse 8 should read that God set the boundaries of the nations [after dividing them at Babel] according to “the number of the sons of God,” or in the Greek, “the angels of God,” not any human rulers like “the sons of Israel.”
On page 322 in The Unseen Realm, Heiser comments further on the LORD’s rationale for judging the sons of God placed over the nations in Psalm 82:
Though originally given their dominions by Yahweh, the ‘lesser’ elohim had governed corruptly and had not maintained loyalty to the Most High. Instead, they embraced the worship that should have gone only to Yahweh (Deut. 17:3; 29:25).”
And now with this insight, read Psalm 82:7 carefully:
Nevertheless, you will die like men and fall like any one of the princes” (NASB).
Whoa! That’s right. These mighty sons of God who currently rule over the nations—the very same powers and principalities that the apostle Paul speaks of in Ephesians 6—will die…like men (Hebrew text reads literally, “…you will die like Adam”). I believe that Revelation 12:7-12 captures the moment when the LORD makes good on His decree and these wicked sons of God are cast down out of heaven, just after we have been raised up and elevated as newly-adopted and glorified sons of God (c.f. Rom. 8:19; 1 Cor. 6:2-3; Gal. 4:5-7). Hallelujah, amen!
* I noticed an interesting pattern between Psalms 81, 82, and 83. All three are grouped into Book III within the Psalter and seem to have a strong connection to one another—especially in regard to the prophetic timeline of events at the start of the Tribulation. Psalm 81 is our quintessential “Feast of Trumpets” psalm (Ps. 81:3); the trumpet is blown on the new moon and we are taken up and hidden on that day (c.f. Rev. 12:5). Psalm 82, as previously discussed, corresponds to what occurs after the Rapture and involves the fall of the “gods” down to earth (Rev. 12:7-12). Psalm 83, as many of you know, relates to the invasion of Israel by her surrounding Arab neighbors once the dragon has been release upon the earth to go after the woman (Rev. 12:6; 13-17). Cool, huh?
Falling Stars From Heaven and a Prison Break from The Bottomless Pit
In the past I wrote about the “star language” of the Bible, which usually refers to heavenly beings, especially in the book of Revelation (see post entitled The Real Star Wars). Again, the Scriptures are clear that these beings that fall to earth during the Day of the LORD are malevolent deceivers who masquerade as angels of light and desire the worship that is solely reserved for Yahweh alone (c.f. 2 Cor. 11:14-15; Rev. 19:10).
Our next OT passage related to the fall of (5) Satan and his ruling angels comes from Isaiah 24:21-23. Here’s the text in its entirety with some highlights and bracketed explanatory notes for emphasis:
On that day [Jacob’s trouble/Tribulation] the LORD will punish the host of heaven above and kings of the earth below. They will be gathered together like prisoners in a pit. They will be confined to a dungeon; after many days [at the end of the Millennial Reign – Rev. 20:7-10] they will be punished. The moon will be put to shame and the sun disgraced [heavenly bodies are shaken – Matt. 24:29], because the LORD of Hosts will reign as king on Mount Zion in Jerusalem [Millennial Reign – Rev. 20:1-6], and He will display His glory in the presence of His elders [you and me included! – Rev. 2:26-27; 4:4, 10]” (HCSB).
Another treasure trove in the book of Isaiah! How awesome is the LORD, our God, who even makes the literal moon in the sky blush with shame [lunar eclipses] and the sun go dark [solar eclipse] before the great and terrible day of His wrath (c.f. Joel 2:30-31; Rev. 12:1-2).
Alien saviors from another planet in the cosmos? No, not at all. May those who are left on earth to witness the coming disclosure look to the Scriptures for guidance. Yahweh has mercifully exposed the identity of these rebellious angels—and as we see in Isaiah, He has given advanced warning.
It’s also interesting to note that once “the hosts of heaven” are judged and thrown down to earth, they are gathered together along with “the kings of the earth.” The world stage during the Tribulation then becomes a fishbowl of God’s wrath as the fallen angels are stripped of their immortality and kicked out of the heavenly realm to join the rebellious sons of Adam below. I believe these fallen angels will definitely retain some of their strength and power after their fall to earth, but it will gradually fade and diminish, possibly on into the Millennium when they are bound and imprisoned (think diminishing strength and lifespan of Adam’s subsequent children post-Fall).
*Any Marvel Comics superheroes coming to mind as you ponder what this will look like to the unsuspecting inhabitants of earth after the fall of these sons of God?
Not only will there be powerful and terrifying creatures falling from heaven above, there will also be even more frightening sights coming up from below—seriously hellish, angelic monsters will be released from the deepest, darkest parts of the underworld to wreak havoc on the surface of the earth.
On this matter I will suggest several Scripture passages for comparison and study: Gen. 6:1-4; Joel 2:1-11; 2 Pet. 2:4-5; Jd. 6; and Rev. 9:1-11. Let’s see if I can trace and connect the dots here, starting with Joel 2:
—The supernatural army described in Joel 2:1-11 are not human agents of divine wrath; they’re not even benevolent angels, either. Contrary to the claim that Joel’s army is a form of the Church militant (see here), this band of destroyers who appear at the onset of the Day of the LORD are also mentioned in Revelation 9:1-11. Notice the immediate context of the book of Joel—a literal locust plague has devastated the land of Israel (Jl. 1:4) and the prophet also sees a day when “locusts” of another kind terrorize the inhabitants of the earth.
—Compare Jl. 2:4-5 with Rev. 9:3, 7-9 (see the connection?). In Revelation we are given more detail concerning the origin of this ghastly, overpowering army (Rev. 9:1-3).
—Both Peter and Jude confirm their identity and origin:
And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day…” (Jd. 6, NKJV).
For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but held them captive in Tartarus with chains of darkness and handed them over to be kept for judgment…” (2 Pet. 2:4, LEB).
—”Tartarus” is an adopted term from Greek-thought concerning the lowest place one could go—even further below hades [or, “hell,” in KJV vernacular]. Brothers and sisters, if you consider hell to be a real place (and you should, because Jesus did too – Matt. 5:29; 10:28; Lk. 16:22-23), then you should also consider Tartarus, or the abyss [Greek, abussos], to be just as real a locale (the demons that Jesus’ encountered considered it a real place too – Lk. 8:31).
—Finally, the brief yet profoundly important passage of Gen. 6:1-4 explains the origin of these imprisoned spirits who will be released during the Tribulation. The same “angels who sinned and did not keep their proper domain” are the same “sons of God” who took “the daughters of men” and begat gigantic offspring [Nephilim] with them (Gen. 6:2, 4).
A Hollywood Ending
All right. Now here’s the kicker: What if we haven’t been reading books like Daniel and Revelation in the proper light? What if those of us who care about bible prophecy have been expecting a mere human ruler to step onto the scene as an Antichrist candidate, when he may not be entirely human?
I’m still wrestling with this, so I offer this as final food for thought. I’ve been re-thinking Daniel 9:24-27, especially in regard to the two contrasting “princes” mentioned in the prophecy. I think it’s time for a fresh look at familiar territory for those of us who have been at this a while.
Considering the context of the book as a whole, what if “prince to come” in Dan. 9:26 is a supernatural being, or some sort of hybrid creature? Is it so far-fetched given what we know about Christ, “the prince” (Dan. 9:25), who has supernatural beginnings? Compare these “princes” with Michael, “a chief prince,” who fights against (7) “the prince of the kingdom of Persia” as well as the other supernatural “kings” mentioned in Dan. 10:13. Heck, while we’re at it, maybe we should revisit “Gog” of Ezekiel 38-39 fame—he’s also a “chief prince” just like Michael (c.f. Ezek. 38:1-2; Dan. 12:1; Rev. 12:7-12).
Also, consider that the apostle John never uses the term “antichrist” in Revelation; instead, he identifies Paul’s “man of lawlessness” (2 Thess. 2:3) as “the beast that rises from the bottomless pit” [Greek, abussos] — the Abyss! (see Rev. 9:11; 11:7; 17:8). I find it intriguing that “the beast” of the Tribulation period is given a short reign with ten other kings (Rev. 17:12)…could these also be fallen sons of God who are jockeying for power among the human race? After all, even though they have been kicked out of heaven and exposed for all mankind to see (c.f. Isa. 14:16-21), they aren’t going to give up without a fight and will continue to use any means necessary to deceive and enslave humanity (I’m looking at you, harlot religions of the world – Rev. 17:1-6, 16-17).
*Another link in the chain: In 2 Thessalonians 2:8 the apostle Paul refers to the prince of Daniel 9:26 as “the lawless one.” He may be borrowing language from the writer of 1 Enoch and, therefore, hinting at his supernatural identity. See 1 Enoch 7:6 where the Nephilim are called “the lawless ones.”
We know the fallen have been working behind the scenes, especially in (5) regard to the alien/extra-terrestrial deception. During the Tribulation they will pick up where they left off and use false signs, miracles, and wonders (2 Thess. 2:9-10; Rev. 13:13-14) as a means to enslave (hence, the holy angel’s warning to John in Rev. 19:10). When the “alien saviors” arrive, mankind will be seduced into creature-worship once again, just as Paul stated in Romans 1:25:
For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen” (NASB).
The earth had better get ready for a real-life, Hollywood blockbuster. It’s all coming to a world theater near you…

Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Commentary; the rider is the ‘beast’ or ‘antichrist’. His being clothed in white suggests ‘3’ false righteousness, false peace and false authority. He has a bow, but no arrows. He rules with lies and threats, but no military or arms. He conquers and subjugates, not with force but with ‘5’ lies, deception, false covenants and false agreements and false promises. He is the world’s greatest ‘political’ leader and deceiver. He is the one who ‘confirms the false covenant of seven years with Jacob’ which starts the tribulation. You should know now of who I speak. His ‘crown’ represents authority, rulership and position. It even literally represents his ‘position’ as Crown Prince, once the tribulation begins. My discernment is that the ‘white horse upon which he sits’ is symbolically a white Arabian stallion.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:23-25)
Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people [Palestinians, Arabs/Muslims] of the prince [Beast, Antichrist] that shall come shall destroy the city [Jerusalem] and the sanctuary [Third Temple]; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he [Prince, Beast, Antichrist] shall confirm [verify] the covenant [‘Normalization’, Abraham Accords] with many [MENA, Arabic/Muslim Countries] for one week [7 years]: and in the midst [3.5 Years] of the week [7 Years] he [Prince, Beast, Antichrist] shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate
Isaiah 28:14-19 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Matthew 24:15: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place(whoever reads, let him understand) then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”
Daniel 11:36 Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.
2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
NWN; Count 1,290 days to the Second Coming of Christ, from when the ‘Abomination of Desolation’ occurs. ALL timelines lead to the Second Physical coming of Christ to earth on the last day of the entire 7 year tribulation.

Revelation 17:8-11 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
‘Seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.’ = NEOM Babylon sits on the seven (7) tallest mountains in the Midian Mountain range in the Tabuk region of Saudi Arabia. Tallest mountain is Mount Sinai. These mountains are scarlet and purple colored due to volcanic origin and related minerals deposited in rock. NEOM is a $500 (5) billion technological/hedonistic paradise. No mention or acceptance of Christ.
Proof of the ‘line of’ of the 8 kings.
Kings of Saudi Arabia (1932–present)
1. King Ibn Saud. 9/22/1932 – 11/9/1953. Kingdom founded by conquest. Had six (6) sons that became Kings of the Kingdom. Six (6) is the number of evil man/men. The ground work for this kingdom was being created at the same time as the ground work for the State of Israel. Satan started establishing his ‘chosen people’ (those who worship the dragon and beast) at the same time God was re-establishing his ‘chosen people’ (the Jews) over the 1930’s to late 1940’s. 1 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
2. King Saud. 11/9/1953 – 11/2/1964. 2 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
3. King Faisal. 11/2/1964 – 3/25/1975. 3 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
4. King Khalid. 3/25/1975 – 6/13/1982. 4 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
5. King Fahd. 6/13/1982 – 8/1/2005. 5 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
6. King Abdullah. 8/1/2005 – 1/23/2015. The king ‘that is.’ This is the 6th king revealed by the Holy Spirit to John the Apostle. He is the signpost for the ‘season of the times’ of the latter days, prior to the tribulation. A sign for the evil Gentile nations.
7. King Salman. (King 2015 – ?). 1/23/2015- (2022) This is the 7th and ‘future’ king revealed to John the Apostle who will reign for a ‘short time or while’. If his reign lasts for 7 years, from 2015 on into 2022, it will truly reflect a short reign and denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for the seven kings, including the seventh king. King Salman is the LAST of the six (6) sons of Ibn Saud to be King of Saudi Arabia.
8. Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed Bin Salman. He is the 8th and final ‘future’ king revealed to John the Apostle. He is the ‘beast’, comes from seven (7) kings/lineage before him and goes to perdition. His reign is over the seven (7) years of the tribulation. Born 1985, he will be 35 (7×5) years old in 2020. Seven (7) denotes God’s divine completion to His plan or purpose. Five (5) denotes Satanic influence of men and kings. God’s influence over men in greater than Satan’s influence over men 7>5. Notice that MBS will be the FIRST king who is NOT a direct son of founding King Ibn Saud in 1932. Becoming the 8th king, MBS represents a ‘new epoch’ a ‘new future’ for the kingdom that forms an ideological break from the past. Eight (8) denotes a new beginning, new timeline, new season, new plan. God is addressing the evil status quo of the House of Saud (bottomless pit of evil, wealth, influence, power, corruption) and ushering in the time of great wrath, the tribulation for Gentile nations. From a spiritual perspective, MBS not being one of the six (6) sons of the founding King Ibn Saud, now holds claim to being the son of perdition under the power and influence of the dragon (Satan). MBS has no allegiance to his family tree, tradition, other family princes and historical political protocol. Only an extremely evil, pathological soul manipulated by Satan would turn on his own family. In Satan’s plan, he used the ‘bottomless pit’ of evil House of Saud to raise MBS, the beast, the son of perdition to be in the positions he both currently and in future, will hold. Just as Jesus Christ had an earthly family tree and lineage, Satan used the House of Saud as the earthly family tree, lineage for his son of perdition, the beast, the coming Antichrist.
At the time John the Apostle was in the Holy Spirit and given a ‘vision’ of the future, 5 of the Saudi Kings were already dead (fallen). He was shown the sixth king, and told that a future 7th and 8th king were coming. The sixth king was a ‘sign post’ of the beginning of the ‘end times’ prior to the tribulation. The 7th King ‘short while’ in current King Salman, the last son of founder Saud. Mbs, Mohammed bin Salman is ‘Crown Prince’ and will become the 8th king (goes into perdition). MbS is the ‘Beast’ who rules during the seven (7) year tribulation and great tribulation (last 3.5 year period.) MbS (Beast now), becomes the Antichrist midway during the 7 year tribulation, at the occurrence known as the ‘Abomination of Desolation.’
King Salman brought his son, MBS into the kingdom’s political arena in 2015. 2015-2020 is also a 5 year period of Satanic influence on MBS, as he has grown in power and worldwide influence and stature among not only Western countries, but among ‘Kings of the East’, and those who worship the dragon and the beast throughout Middle East / North African countries (MENA – the ‘many’ Arabic and Islamic countries).
Mohammed bin Salman (named Crown Prince, June 2017). He is referred to scripturally as both a Prince and as a King. This is extremely unique and mentioned for a very real reason. He plays a prophetic role as Prince (when he confirms the false peace covenant among many nations throughout MENA regarding Israel and the Palestinians). Please consider that many, if not all, MENA countries are either Arabic and/or Muslim and are financially and politically beholden to Saudi Arabia in one form or another. Religiously, all these countries are beholden to the House of Saud, because it is the ‘custodian’ of Islam’s ‘holiest’ sites in Saudi Arabia. All Muslims must come for Hajj in Saudi Arabia at some point in their life, if capable (those who worship the dragon and the beast). Satanic influence is woven together and throughout ALL of these counties. They will agree to MBS’ confirmation of the covenant, as Crown Prince. They dare not come against the Crown Prince’s wish and confirmation. Thus, they will abide by his confirmation. They have every reason to accept his confirmation, because of their political, financial and religious vested interests with Saudi Arabia. ‘Who can make war or come against the Beast?’
MBS also plays a prophetic role as Saudi Arabia’s 8th King. This will likely occur before he enters the rebuilt Jewish 3rd Temple and causes the Abomination of Desolation (claims to be god and demands to be worshiped as such). Poor man wants to be rich, rich man wants to be prince, prince wants to be king, king wants to be god and rule everything. As such, MBS will likely be the Saudi’s 8th King once he sets foot in the rebuilt Jewish temple half way through the tribulation. After all, he is already the focus of ‘those who worship the dragon and the beast.’ He now wants the Jews to worship him along with the rest of the world (via the destruction of his previous accommodation and approval of the worshipping of the false mystery religions.) It’s not enough that Satan has deceived almost 2 billion Muslims. He now wants to be worshipped by the rest of the earth by Hindus, Buddhists, et.al. Satan destroys the false ‘mystery religion’ being propagated by the False Prophet, so he can be the only focus of mankind’s worship. These false religions served their satanic purpose by deceiving men and leading men away from Christ, now is time to throw these other false religions into the fire so men are forced to worship Satan, through MBS exclusively.
Hence, MBS’ role will have changed from beast/prince to king to Antichrist at this point. He is indwelt by Satan in order for Satan to satisfy his claim that he will rise to be like the true God and to be worshipped as such. As a spiritual entity, Satan can only possess and indwell a flesh and blood human man. Satan has done everything in his power to raise MBS up through the evil bottomless pit of the House of Saud, to become a Crown Prince, to become a King, and now that Satan has possessed him to become the world-wide Antichrist. At this point, MBS is completely under Satan’s authority and power and ensues to blaspheme God and Jesus Christ.
The timing of when MBS became Crown Prince is known (June 2017). When he becomes king is when his father succumbs the throne to MBS (this could be through death or a short political reign for one reason or another – health?). The actual timing is unimportant, all we are told is that the 7th king’s reign is for a ‘short time or while.’ His term could be 5, 6, 7 or 8 years.
Where else is there a family/political dynasty on earth that has had seven (7) consecutive kings that rule a country from the same genetic line? In the Middle East? During the time of Israel’s rebirth from a valley of dry bones to a budding fig tree? Saudi Arabia’s current 7th king and future 8th king fit the Biblical narratives set forth by the Word of God. 7th and 8th kings from the bottomless pit of evil, money, power, influence, corruption (5 Satanic influences). MBS is prince when he confirms the covenant. MBS becomes an Antichrist when he is worshiped as a mujaddid by Muslims, and then becomes the worldwide Antichrist when he is indwelt by Satan.
The timing of John the Apostle’s vision regarding the 8 Kings from the bottomless pit of the House of Saud – 5 ‘fallen’, 1 ‘is current’, 2 ‘are future’.
Why is this even a topic worth mentioning? What is the point? Is there a point? Yes, there is a point. And it is VERY important, from a prophetic viewpoint. In that, it is a ‘viewing point’ of the latter days, leading up to the tribulation. How so?
First, as Christians, we know that the Triune God gave John the Apostle a vision and knowledge of many things pertaining to the days leading up to and into the tribulation and after. The Holy Spirit carried him into the future, from his particular life in time, to witness things that he then explained in his Revelation of Jesus Christ. One of the visions he was given, while in the Holy Spirit, was of the 5 kings that were fallen, a 6th king he was being shown, and that of a 7th king who had not come (but would rule for a short while at some point in the future). Lastly, he was shown a future and last 8th king known and described as the Beast who would be sent to perdition, udder destruction, the lake of fire and brimstone, the second death … alive.
I have attempted to confirm who the 7th and 8th kings are from our point in space and time, relative to the ‘season of the times.’ What about this mysterious sixth king, the king ‘who is’. Why is this king important that John the Apostle was directly being shown? And what possible prophetic importance can he have? Of the 8 kings, why would God single out this particular man?
Consider that God, through the Holy Spirit, could have shown John any or all of the Kings in future ‘real time’. He was not permitted to see the 7th or 8th kings, but only the sixth. What perhaps was God’s reason for this?
The reign of 6th King Abdullah was from 2005 to 2015. This snapshot of time and space is important because it suggests that this time frame is important for us, for Gentiles alive in the final generation. To know that we are indeed in the ‘final season’ prior to our harpazo/rapture and the onset of the tribulation, without any doubt or hesitation. We know that Israel’s prophetic time clock began in 1948. God’s prophetic time clock for the tribulation of Gentile nations suggests that it started during the time of this sixth king. It is beyond the scope of this letter to go into details about what has occurred throughout the entire earth during the time of the sixth king’s reign. Many prophetic things started being revealed over the 5 year period from 2010 to 2015. The time of the sixth king’s reign is a sign post, a flashing light, a notice of when the final season begins and is upon the earth for Gentiles. God has given signs in scripture and the heavens for Jews, and Gentiles alike. The September 23, 2017 occurrence of the ‘great sign in heaven’ is an example of a sign for the Bride of Christ. The 6th Saudi king is a Gentile and a member of the House of Saud and the bottomless pit of evil. His reign (along with all the other past 5 kings and 2 future kings) has been orchestrated by Satan during the growth of this kingdom and the discovery of its bottomless wealth (oil). To a logical mind, clear and sober, this would indicate that God is saying that the age of grace for all Gentiles on earth is coming to a close. It is not important that we don’t know if God considers 2005 or 2015 to be the beginning of the ‘season of the time before the tribulation.’ Just as God spoke generically about the rebirth of Israel, as when you ‘see the fig tree bearing fruit’, he was referring to a time frame or process developing over time. In His divine plan, things develop and take time to grow until their divine timing is ripe to be revealed. Those who can discern can watch this occur, as it happens in ‘real time’ and understand appropriately and accordingly. As God gave a general timeline for Israel, commencing in 1948, he gives a Gentile timeline commencing in 2015. This of course is BEFORE the arrival of the future 7th and 8th kings who would indicate perhaps the middle and end of the ‘Fall Season’ or Season of the Times’ prior to the rapture/harpazo for the Bride and the onset of the tribulation.’
The 7 year period from 2015 to 2022 does indeed represent a 7 year period denoting God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for the modern kingship lineage (line of) of Saudi Arabia. Time for the ‘Age of Grace’ has almost ended. As I write this letter, there is exactly only three (3) months remaining in 2019 before the world enters 2020 and a ‘new’ decade. Time is running out before the time begins of God’s great wrath on mankind and Gentile nations. We can know this with certainty by looking at the time frame witnessed by John the Apostle of the 6th king from the House of Saud. Six (6) denotes evil man/men. Seven (7) denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose. Eight (8) denotes new era, new epoch, new season, new time span, new series of events. The 7th Saud King indicates that God is finished with Satan’s status quo in Saudi Arabia and of the evil Gentile world. The 8th Saud King indicates that God is ushering in a new time of tribulation and trial for mankind, Jews and Gentiles. Remember, the seven (7) year tribulation is also referred to as the ‘time or week of Jacob’s trouble.’ A week being seven (7) years and Jacob being a reference to Jews and Israel. God is turning his attention back onto Israel, the redemption of the Jews, wrath towards the Gentile world and arranging the coming Millennial Reign of Christ on Earth.
But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” Romans 10:14
