Revelation 11:2 continued
The Courtyard and The Beast Who Stalks It
Go to the index page for: The Revelation of Navi Y'shua
We pray to HaShem, the Holy One of Israel, to fill our hearts with wisdom and understanding as we continue this study into the Revelation of our chief rabbi, Navi Y'shua.Revelation 11:1 A reed like a rod was given to me. Someone said, "Rise, and measure God's temple, and the altar, and those who worship in it.
11:2 Leave out the court which is outside of the temple, and don't measure it, for it has been given to the nations. They will tread the holy city under foot for forty-two months.
We add this overview on identifying the Rex Mundi here because he is like a vicious beast stalking the very courtyard of the Beit HaMikdash. The courtyard is "left out" of Navi Yochanan's calculations for precisely this reason. As the Scripture says:I Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour.
As the Tribulation Period begins hope will be on everyone's mind and heart. The dark days will seemingly be over and a new enlightened age will be dawning... or so it will seem to those who do not correctly understand the prophecies.
As construction begins and progresses on the Temple Mount, as peace treaties are being signed around the globe, as food and medical shortages are giving way to plenty and diseases are being "miraculously" healed, as new and amazing technologies are released, as the nations destroy their weapon caches in seeming fulfillment of Isaiah 11 and other prophecies.. it will appear that the human race will have finally established global unity, security and peace. For the adherents of all religions it will appear that Moshiach, however conceived, has arrived! Understand that the vast majority of the world will believe the lie (II Thessalonians 2:11). Don't be among them.I Thessalonians 5:3 For when they proclaim, "Peace and safety," then sudden destruction will come upon them, as birthpangs upon a woman and they will not escape.
The Beast now stalking the metaphorical courtyard will stalk the literal courtyard and even enter into the newly re-built Temple and its Holy of holies. There he will commit the abomination of desolation spoken of by Navi Daniel, Rav Yochanan, Rav Paul and Rebbe Y'shua. We need to be studious and vigilant if we are to understand what's coming! It will not be obvious as many suppose.
Rex Mundi Must Be Jewish
First, the "Son of Perdition" must be Jewish because Jewish authorities would never accept a Gentile as haMoshiach. This obvious fact seems to allude many prophecy teachers. For instance in the "Left Behind" series the Anti-Christ "Nicolae Carpathia" is presented as a Transylvanian Caucasian from Cluj County, Romania. If he's not Jewish he's not the "Man in Opposition to Torah."
Rex Mundi Must Appear to Fulfill the Prophecies
Not only must the coming despot be a Jewish male, he must also be able to validate his ancestry according to the detailed requisite messianic lineage. Following the destruction of the Temple in 70 C.E. most Jews lost demonstrative knowledge of their tribal lineages because that is where the records were kept. The use of historic surnames like Levine, Katz, Cohen and so on is not enough to establish his lineage as names are often adopted and/or changed.
How then can anyone other than our Rebbe be accepted as haMoshiach today? There are many theories however the Orthodox authorities will have to determine what they will accept as valid evidence.
Some suggest that hidden beneath the Temple Mount (or possibly elsewhere) are genealogical records that will enable haMoshiach and the elders of Israel to confirm his lineage. There certainly is a lot of excavation going on and they may unearth something. This is plausible.
Mary Magdalene's Important Role
There are also the partially substantiatable reports of the Merovingian adoption of Mary Magdalene and the daughter she allegedly bore with Rebbe Y'shua. It is theorized by those who hold this view that the wedding feast at Cana was theirs (John 2). In defense of this, we note our Rebbe's mother's involvement in the event and the presence of our Rebbe and his talmidim. Rebbe Y'shua performed his first biblically recorded miracle at this event as he changed barrels of water into wine. On this point we also note that the Pharisees accepted Rebbe Y'shua as a rabbi (John 1:38 etc.) and that rabbis are required to be married by Rabbinic law. While this requirement is not specific to rabbis, all Jewish men and women are required to marry and have children (Genesis 1:22). Rabbis are required to be especially Torah observant and so it seems certain that Rebbe Y'shua would not have been accepted as a rabbi by the orthodox Jewish hierarchy had he not been married with at least the halachic possibility of having children.
Marrying at the beginning of his active ministry would have been appropriate to establish his rabbinic eligibility and Mary would have been a perfect choice considering his ministry. According to ancient tradition Mary Magdalene was the prostitute our Rebbe defended from the rabbis (as recorded at John chapter 8). Contrast this interesting tradition with the life of Navi Hosea. At the beginning of his ministry HaShem commanded the prophet to marry a Prostitute as a judgement against Israel:Hosea 1:2 ADONAI's opening words in speaking to Hoshea were to instruct Hoshea, "Go, marry a whore, and have children with this whore; for the land is engaged in flagrant whoring, whoring away from ADONAI."When we read Rebbe Y'shua's criticism of the rabbis at Matthew 23and elsewhere the parallels are to clear to miss. He judged them thusly:
3 So he went and married Gomer the daughter of Divlayim, and she conceived and bore him a son.Mark 8:38 For if someone is ashamed of me and of what I say in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man also will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels.According to many of the anti-biblical "Dark Prophecies" (such as The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln) Mary Magdalene is an occult high priestess through whose lineage the final global redeemer will soon arise.
While this may sound far-fetched to some, we have lots of independent testimony that following the execution and burial of Rebbe Y'shua, Joseph of Arimathea fled Judea by ship with others, including Mary Magdalene, and ended up in England where he was later buried. The ship landed or capsized (accounts vary) at Marseilles, in the Vienoise province of the Gauls (i.e. France). The injured Mary Magdalene was taken in by the local Mer community while Joseph continued on to England. It is said that Mary was nurtured back to health and remained sequestered in a Bavarian Mer castle Of this we read:In Christ in Britain we established that a man named Joseph of Arimathea was the Virgin Mary's's uncle. It was he, along with St. John who buried Jesus after the crucifixion. Joseph, in the tin trade, made a lot of trips to Britain, where being a rich merchant made close contact with British Royalty; namely Kings Beli, Lud, Llyr and Arviragus, who gave Joseph and his companions some 2000 acres of land, tax free [in perpetuity]. On these trips to Britain, Joseph took Jesus, as we showed through many geographical, historical and traditional references. The details of this study are taken mainly from "The Drama of the Lost Disciples", by George F. Jowett....There is a lot of similar research that we wont go into here, however the accuracy of this essential history is well established. The direct link between Merovingian and other European royal families is equally certain and documented. Charles "The Hammer" Martel (AKA "Carolus Martellus," ca. 688 – 22 October 741), the grandfather of Charlemagne, is the known founder of the Order. This is the origin of Merovingian Dynasty.
... In his "Ecclesiastical Annals", Cardinal Baronius, Curator of the Vatican library, gives this account. "In that year the party mentioned was exposed to the sea in a vessel without sails or oars. The vessel drifted finally to Marseilles and they were saved. From Marseilles Joseph and his company passed into Britain and after preaching the Gospel there, died" (source: asis.com)
The marriage of Mary Magdalene and Rebbe Y'shua, the birth of a daughter and their life in France and Bavaria among the Merovingian elite, while supported by known facts, remains at this point a matter of some conjecture. If the alleged accounts regarding Mary after she separated from Joseph in Marseilles can be further documented, then the proposed events that are quite plausible.
According to certain "Dark Prophecies" Rex Mundi will arise from Western Europe through the lineage of Mary Magdalene, Rebbe Y'shua and their sequestered daughter's descendents. According to this belief a covert order known as the Bavarian Illuminati has cared for and selectively bred the San Grael (the "sacred bloodline") ever since the birth of Rebbe Y'shua's daughter. Through their efforts genetic research and related technologies were advanced as they sought to produce a genetically perfect human being. The fulfillment of these efforts will be the Rex Mundi, the great leader of the Novus Ordo Seclorum. Knowledge of these scientific breakthroughs have been limited to a select few but are now being made through groups like the Human Genome Project and so on. This is NOT to suggest that those involved in such projects are directly involved or even necessarily aware of the Bavarian designs and connections to their research.
The Rise of "Messianic" Christianity
Sadly the "Messianic," "Jews for Jesus," "Hebraic Roots," "Ebionite," "Two House" (etc) Christian sects and ministers may unwittingly be integral in this deception spreading throughout Christendom. While we obviously encourage Christians to delve into and embrace the Jewish roots of Rebbe Y'shua's teachings, there is a grave danger if one does so while maintaining or developing anti-Torah understandings.
According to the Bible, the Rex Mundi is going to convince the world that he, a mere mortal, is God incarnate, the "Second Coming of Jesus." Those who are not clear about the absolute Oneness of HaShem declared throughout the Bible will find this heresy much easier to embrace than those who embrace biblical religion. If HaShem became a man as Jesus, they will conclude, He may do it again as the "Great Leader." Likewise those who believe the Jews have been replaced as the Elect will find this new Nicolaitan religion desirable as they witness the elders of Israel surrendering Torah to this imposture.
Until the Rex Mundi directly claims divinity the Jews will accept him, however once that happens they will rebel (Revelation 12). Prior to that point they will overlook the "confusion" of others who believe him to be a god, assuming the leader will clarify this in due course.
From what is known from the Bible and other sources we can see the overall structure of the New Order of the Ages (or "Novus Ordo Seclorum") coming into place however there remains a great many details that are unknown. However he does it, Rex Mundi must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the world's leading Orthodox Rabbis that he meets ALL of the qualifications to be haMoshiach. He must demonstrate to the world's political leaders that he has a viable plan and political connections that are harmonious with their plan for the establishment of global governance and that his plan will include and empower them. He must also convince the religious leaders and practitioners of the various religions that his goals are harmonious with theirs and will further their causes.
Whether the Rex Mundi will actually be a blood descendant of Rebbe Y'shua and Mary Magdalene or not, it seems very likely that he will at least claim the San Grael ancestry and produce solid evidence supporting the claim. Too much effort has been expended in setting this up for it not to be a factor.
Antichrists and Antichrist
We are told the following:I John 2:18 Little children, these are the end times, and as you heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have arisen...
There will be one man who will be the Antichrist and that man has yet to appear on the world stage even though we have witnessed antichrists throughout history.
A Few Names of the Coming World Ruler:
- Antichrist: I John 2:18
- Son of Perdition: II Thessalonians 2:3
- The Wicked One: II Thessalonians 2:8
- Little Horn: Dan 7:8, Dan 8:9
- The Beast: Rev 13
- The Man of Sin ("He who opposes Torah"): II Thessalonians 2:3
- Rex Mundi: A name used by the Illuminati Elite and others.
- Dijal: Islamic name for the coming global despot
- Imam Madhi (the 12th Imam): The foretold Islamic depot who is to reign for seven years and destroy all other religions.
His Lineage and Birth:
To be accepted as haMoshiach the coming despot will need to demonstrate that he meets the following criteria (as Rebbe Y'shua has):
- That he is descended from Adam (Genesis 22:18)
- Through Noah's son Shem (Genesis 9:27)
- Through Abraham and Sarah -- i.e. not with Hagar through Ishmael -- and through Isaac (Genesis 17:19, 21:12)
- Through Jacob (Numbers 24:17)
Note the wording: I see Him, but not now. I behold Him, but not near. Moshe penned this around 1400 B.C.E. This verse states that a great descendant (haMoshiach) would one day arise through the lineage of Jacob (Ya'akov) in the then distant future.
- Through Abraham and Jesse (Isaiah 11:1, 10)
- Through King David (Isaiah 11:1, Jeremiah 23:5)
- Must be a great political leader (Jeremiah 23:5)
- Through King Solomon (1 Chronicles 22:8-10) but not through Y'khanyahu (Jeremiah 22:28)
- Must be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2)
- Must be well-versed in Jewish law and observant of its commandments (Isaiah 11:2-5)
- Jewish Orthodoxy accepts the following as indisputable Messianic Prophecies:
In order for the rabbis to accept the coming despot as haMoshiach he must either meet all of these qualifications at a minimum or convince them why they are not required.
- Isaiah 2, 11, 42; 59:20
- Jeremiah 23, 30, 33; 48:47; 49:39
- Ezekiel 38:16
- Hosea 3:4-3:5
- Micah 4
- Zephaniah 3:9
- Zechariah 14:9
- Daniel 10:14
Furthermore, as Meshiykhiyyim we understand that the coming global despot will be accepted as haMoshiach by Jewish Orthodoxy (John 5:43) making the above requite for both haMoshiach as well as his imitator.
Where he will appear:
- Must come from Nazareth (Isaiah 11:1,2)
- Must come out of Egypt (Hosea 11:1)
- Must enter Jerusalem with great pomp and circumstance hailed as haMoshiach (Zechariah 9:9)
- Must arise in the EU (Daniel 7:8, 8:9)
- Must arise from Assyria and hence possibly Southern Greece that is both Western Europe and part of the ancient ancient Empire (Isaiah 10:5, 24; Micah 5:5)
- Will be accepted as Second Coming of Jesus by Christians: (I Thessalonians 2:4
- Will be accepted by people of all religions (Revelation 13:3)
- Will appear after the Nicean Church becomes irrelevant on the world stage due to apathy and hypocrisy. This event is known as the 'great falling away (II Thessalonians 2:3, Revelation 3:15-20
- Will arise during a time of global chaos (I Thessalonians 5:3, Jeremiah 31:15-17; Matthew 24:21
- Will wrongly be accepted as a peace bringer (I Thessalonians 5:3
- Will utilize or establish a global economic system based on "the Mark of the Beast" (Revelation 13:15-18)
- Will be head of a global union of nations
This is confirmed through the study of Daniel and the Revelation of Y'shua.
The fourth world kingdom foretold by Daniel, i.e. the Roman Empire (Daniel 7:23), as foretold divided into the essential nations of Europe (Daniel 7:24). From among these nations, today known as the European Union, the "Little Horn" or Antichrist will arise.Daniel 7:25 "He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time."
II Thessalonians 2:4 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.
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was furious with the woman [Israel], and went to make war with the remnant of her seed...
- Israel will be a nation when he rises (Matthew 24:32, Rev. 12)
- The Beast will be the last global ruler, other than the real Moshiach: (Daniel 2:44, Matthew 24:35)
- He Will rebuild the Jerusalem Temple and establish Israel ( Maimonides on Deuteronomy 30:3-5)
- The Sanhedrin will be re-established in an independent Israel (Isaiah 1:26) -- [partially fulfilled in October 2004]
- Once he is King, leaders of other nations will look to him for guidance (Isaiah 2:4, 11:, Zechariah 8:23)
- Evil and tyranny will not be able to stand before his leadership (Isaiah 11:4)
- Knowledge of God will fill the world (Isaiah 11:9)
- He will include and attract people from all cultures and nations (Isaiah 11:10)
- All Jews will return to Eretz Israel, the eternal homeland (Isaiah 11:12)
- He will swallow up death forever (Isaiah 25:8)
- There will be no more hunger or illness, and death will cease (Isaiah 25:8)
- All of the dead will rise again (Isaiah 26:19, I Thessalonians 4:16)
- The Jewish people and all others will experience eternal joy and gladness (Isaiah 51:11)
- He will appear to be a messenger of peace (Isaiah 52:7, I Thessalonians 5:3)
- The nations will recognize the wrongs they did Israel and repent (Isaiah 52:13-53:5)
- "For My House shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations" (Isaiah 56:3-7)
- The peoples of the world will turn to the Jews for spiritual guidance (Zechariah 8:23)
- The ruined cities of Israel will be restored (Ezekiel 16:55)
- The weapons of war will be destroyed (Ezekiel 39:9)
- The Temple will be rebuilt (Ezekiel 40), resuming the suspended mitzvot and sacrifices.
- He will lead the world into perfection in the service of the God of Israel(Zephaniah 3:9)
- All Jews will know the Torah without Study (Jeremiah 31:33)
- He will satisfy all desires of his servants(Psalms 37:4)
- He will take the barren lands and make them abundant and fruitful (Isaiah 51:3, Amos 9:13-15, Ezekiel 36:29-30, Isaiah 11:6-9)
Rav Paul explains how the Rex Mundi will "sit in the Temple of God showing himself that he is God" at II Thessalonians 2:4. Daniel speaks of this same event at his Daniel 9. All biblical prophets are completely consistent and we can see their prophecies coming to pass today as never before.
The global tyrant will reign over the earth for seven years
His reign will begin with the signing of a certain treaty with Israel as e read: Daniel 9:27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week [i.e. for seven years]; But in the middle of the week [i.e. after three and a half years] he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.
This "week" (seven days = seven years: for the biblical principle compare "a day for a year" or "one week" at Ezekiel 4:6, Numbers 14:34 and elsewhere) refers to duration of his reign. From all available evidence this will be a literal seven year period beginning with the signing of a certain treaty with Israel. While seven years does not seem that long, consider the damage cause by Adolph Hitler during his reign from January 30,1933 - April 30.1945. With modern technologies seven years can seem like "forever."
The Novus Ordo Mundi ("New World Order") has existed for many years. Its oft stated aim is the establishment of the Novus Ordo Seclorum or "New Order of the Ages," which they hope will last for a thousand years (as Hitler intended for its Third Reich predecessor). The Novus Ordo Seclorum will be the seven year reign of the Beast.
Through the diverse globalist movements the foundations of this New World Order is established even now with politicians in every nation and party knowingly and/or unwittingly pushing it forward.
Once the Rex Mundi signs the treaty with Israel that will be hailed as the final event establishing global peace and the Global Union. As Israel signs that document the seven years of Tribulation will begin.
Roughly three and half years later, at about the half way point, the leader will violate the treatise or covenant and commit the abomination of desolation inside the Jerusalem Temple.
Following this abomination, or as part of it, he will declare himself to be God incarnate and for the next (second) three and half years various plagues and curses will be poured out upon the earth until, at the end, HaShem will send haMoshiach and establish the long awaited Israeli Theocracy. If Moshiach fails to come life on earth will cease (Matthew 24:22). The human race will destroy itself.
During the initial three and half years the Rex Mundi will appear to be a "Prince of Peace," but during the second half of this period his true nature will be witnessed by all:I Thessalonians 5:1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you.
2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
3 For when they say, "Peace and safety!" then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
The global despot will declare global peace has been achieved.
He will declare himself to be the Moshiach of Israel and savior of the world.
He will declare himself to be God Incarnate
He will declare himself to be the Second Coming of Jesus.
He will declare himself to be the 12th Imam or Madhi
Could the Antichrist Win?
The Global Elite are not naive nor suicidal! As one studies the "Dark Prophecies" it is clear that the Globalists expect to win!
According to Rebbe Y'shua there is only one way the New World Order Elite can win and they have been pursuing this goal since the beginning:Matthew 24:22 And unless those days [i.e. the final 3 1/2 years of the tribulation Period] were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.
.... for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.
One of the most damnable teachings fostered by many Christians (including many that refer to themselves as "Messianic" in one form or another) is "Replacement Theology" and/or the "Two House Theory." This is anti-Torah belief that HaShem has abandoned his eternal covenant with Israel and accepted another group as His elect. Torah is clear:Genesis 12:1 Now Adonai had said to Abram: "Get out of your country, From your family And from your father's house, To a land that I will show you.
2 I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."
Israel, the Elect of HaShem is THE KEY.
IF the New World Order, Merovingian Elite can genocide the Jews they will win and haMoshiach will not come! This is the real cause of anti-Semitism.
People Israel is the only thing standing between humanity and the Great Abyss.
Israel is THE KEY.
This is why anti-Semitism. and "a final answer to the Jewish Question" has ALWAYS been job one for the Globalists and is clearly so today. It is a prime focus of people on both the right and the left sides of the political spectrum in every significant country. It is why al Ikhwan is so determined to drive the Jews into the sea. It is what motivated the Hitlers throughout the ages. The influences of the Globalists are everywhere present.
If you wish to recognize the Antichrist as he arises, to know the blessings of the one true God even now, then you must decide and you must stand with Israel. This is your decision to make.Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve Adonai, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve Adonai!
