Doctrines of Devils

Doctrines of Devils

By Daymond Duck

The apostle Paul said, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (I Tim. 4:1).

The Holy Spirit has an important message especially for those who attend church: Pay attention. Be on guard.

When the last days of the Church are winding down on earth, many who call themselves Christians will abandon what the Bible says. They will depart from the Scriptures because they are allowing themselves to be led astray by satanic spirits espousing satanic doctrines.

Satan doesn’t walk up to his victims in a red suit with a pitchfork in his hand. He has filled the atmosphere with demonic spirits that present themselves as ministers of righteousness (II Cor. 11:13-15).

They are cunning. They know who is vulnerable. They know how to lead people astray. And it is real. Few would deny that Satan tempted Jesus many times. This is important because the Church in the U.S. is in decline.

Articles about church members becoming inactive and churches closing their doors are becoming very common. There are more church closings than new churches openings. The percentage ofU.S. citizens who have no affiliation with church is rising. And on and on it goes. Satan and his demons are very active.

Members of the Satanic Temple recently announced that they have opened their international headquarters in Salem Mass. Their website says, “The fact that we have a home in Salem is a testament to the progressive mentality of the people there, and the local government’s support for plurality.”

The Satanic Temple has now opened after school Satan Clubs in several states. A 2001 U.S. Supreme Court ruling allows them to do this.

It is well known that the re-creation of an arch at the Temple of Baal was recently and temporarily erected at City Hall Park in New York City. Baal worship led to God’s destruction of Israel in Old Testament Times, but Roman Catholic Mayor Bill de Blasio thinks he has done a good deed.

Authorities in the Roman Catholic Church in Italy and the U.S.recently said there has been a “sharp rise in people dabbling in Satanism and the occult.” According to them demonic possessions are rising and there is now an urgent need for more trained exorcists.

These authorities blamed the rise in Satanism and the occult on the direct activity of Satan and the decline in faith and values in the world.

The article about this is posted at:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/09/26/urgent-need-for-more-exorcists-as-increasing-number-of-people-da/

Here is the good news: This Satanism and the decline of the Church are two important signs that we are getting close to the Rapture.

On Sept. 28, 2016, christianpost.com posted an outstanding article on their website titled “Globalism Is Anti-Christ, Demonic, Theologians Argue.”

The article is about globalism (world government) and a global value system (a world religion).

The author, Brandon Showalter, does an excellent job of pointing out the demonic aspects of globalism, its opposition to the kingdomof God and the danger of removing our borders.

The article points out that one of the candidates for Pres. of the U.S.opposes this demonic globalism and the other fully embraces it.

Many people don’t seem to realize (is this strong delusion?), that the coming world government will be headed up by the Antichrist and he will be a Satan worshipper (Rev. 13:3-4). They don’t seem to understand that demonic activity will lead to the battle of Armageddon (Rev. 16:13-4).

Anyway, one of the prophecies of the Tribulation period is a day of darkness and gloominess. Spiritual darkness is flooding down on the U.S. (Zeph. 1:15).  Please vote.

Black Lives Matter Exposed

Black Lives Matter Exposed – By Daymond Duck –
http://raptureready.com/featured/duck/dd235.html

Many of the comments that I have heard about the shooting of 12 police officers (5 were killed) at the Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas on July 7, 2016 contained expressions of concern about the future of the U.S.

Considering the fact that the police are investigating the possible motives of the murderer, Micah Johnson, and searching for connections to activist and terrorist groups such as Black Lives Matter, I have decided to note some of the important facts that I have read and heard about the group.

Pres. Obama is one of the most powerful supporters of Black Lives Matter. He has held meetings with them at the White House. Logs show that one of their leaders, DeRay McKesson (Google him), is a frequent visitor to the White House and he has even attended one of the White House Christmas parties. Pres. Obama has praised him and his associates as people who “are going to take America to new heights.”

George Soros, a radical globalist who occasionally visits the White House and wants to destroy the sovereignty of America, has given more than 30 million dollars to Black Lives Matter and groups that pay people to protest and demonstrate.

Hillary Clinton has had problems with Black Lives Matter, but she has catered to them by repeating the words Black Lives Matter in her speeches and by blaming the death of young black men on whites and the police.

The Democratic National Committee has officially endorsed Black Lives Matter.

Wealthy donors to the Democratic Party and some large corporations such as Google have given large donations to Black Lives Matter.

Black Lives Matter often calls for violence against the police with chants of: 1) “What do we want? Dead Cops! When do we want it? Now!” 2) “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon!” and 3) “Hands up, don’t shoot!”

Following the death of five Dallas police officers, supporters of Black Lives Matter celebrated and Tweeted expressions of joy and satisfaction.

Videos show that many of the demonstrators at Ferguson, MO., Baltimore, MD. and other places are the same people. At Ferguson, MO. there was rioting, looting and property destruction.

Assata Shakur is a convicted cop-killer (Google her). She has been accused of bank robbery, armed robbery and kidnapping; she has escaped prison and fled to Cuba; she is on the FBI’s most wanted terrorist list; and more. She is often quoted and praised by DeRay McKesson, Pres. Obama’s frequent White House visitor.

Following the August 2014 rioting in Ferguson, MO., the Congressional Black Caucus, the ACLU, several labor unions (the AFL-CIO and SEIU) and several members of Hollywood called upon Pres Obama to nationalize the local police forces and to put them under the Dept. of Justice.

Pres. Obama responded by creating a task force on “21st Century Policing.” He appointed at least two Black Lives Matters leaders (Brittany Packnett and DeRay Mckesson follower of Assata Shakur) to be on that task force.

At a celebration of Black History Month, Pres. Obama praised Brittany for leading many of the demonstrations in Ferguson, MO. and DeRay Mekesson for his outstanding mobilizing work in Baltimore, MD.

On Mar. 18, 2016, it was reported that many of those that helped with the demonstrations in Ferguson, MO. and Baltimore, MD. were planning more demonstrations in 2016 and in some cases they would target Donald Trump and some of his events.

Another report said protesters were being paid 10-15 dollars an hour with money that was originating with George Soros.

In addition to nationalizing the local police, it is being reported that Black Lives Matters wants U.S. citizens to be disarmed. And Pres. Obama has used most of the violence and killing to talk about Gun control.

On July 8, 2016, according to a report by Stefhan Standford, a writer for All News Pipeline, the Baltimore Sun reported that DeRay McKesson’s Twitter account has been hacked. It is Mr. Standford’s opinion that McKesson messages that were made public show that Black Lives Matter and the Obama Administration are working together to stop the November elections and to keep Donald Trump out of office. Mr. Standford even thinks the Obama Administration may be planning to declare Martial Law.

On that same day, Alex Jones, a nationally syndicated radio host, called Black Lives Matter a “domestic terrorist organization” that is part of a “plan to destabilize America and bring in the UN to take over.”

On the next day, Dave Hodges, host of The Common Sense Show, expressed a similar opinion, “George Soros’ organizations are organizing protests, which will soon escalate into violence all across this country. This will provide this administration with the justification to enact marital law.”

On July 9, 2016, DeRay McKesson was one of 30 people arrested at demonstrations in Baton Rouge, LA. The demonstrations were described as tense, two firearms were confiscated, but a reason was not given for why Mckesson was arrested.

There is much more and readers should be able to Google most or all of these things. Sadly, there appears to be a connection between the Pres. of the U.S., racial violence, gun control, the Democrat Party and perhaps even Martial Law.

Finally, many of those in Congress that should be working to protect the U.S. from anarchy and things like this are tied up with ways to protect the U.S. from Donald Trump. Pres. Obama’s co-conspirator on many issues, Paul Ryan, is even threatening to sue Donald Trump.

I ask your forgiveness Lord. There should be repentance and prayer in every church in the U.S., but it is hard to find a handful that believes and cares.

Please Lord! Help America. If you don’t, she will soon be gone.

The Coming Snare

The Coming Snare – By Daymond Duck –
 
In the past few months, the world has gone through some of the most far-reaching and consequential events in the history of mankind and most people-including most church goers, are unaware of these developments.
 
Concerning His return, Jesus said, “Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, andso that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth” (Luke 21:34-35).
 
Our Lord was saying beware of getting so preoccupied with the cares of this world that you fail to watch for His return. Beware of getting so distracted that you fail to watch the signs or you will be caught by surprise.
 
Below is a short list of recent historic developments (monumental events of great prophetic significance) that only a few are paying attention to.
 
In June, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is legal and their ruling is a clear sign that the days of Lot and the days of Noah have arrived. Whether or not people agree with the court’s decision doesn’t matter. Their ruling is an indisputable sign that the end-of-the-age has arrived (Luke 17:26-30).
 
In June, Pope Francis released an encyclical calling for a reduction in the world’s population, regulating global climate change, establishing a global constitution, establishing a global court and establishing a one-world government. Doing this will make the rule of Antichrist possible during the Tribulation period (Dan.7:23; Rev.13:7).
 
In July, a Pew Study found that more Christians are being persecuted today than at any other time in the history of the church (Matt. 24:9). The world is a dangerous place for Christians especially those in the Middle East.
 
In July, the Temple Institute announced that the architectural plans for a rebuilt Temple are complete and ready to use (Dan. 9:26; Matt. 24:15; 2 Thess. 2:4; Rev.11:1). The Temple will be rebuilt after the Rapture so the finished plans are a sure sign that the removal of the church is drawing near.
 
In August, the global economy took a beating (Rev. 6:5-6). Puerto Rico defaulted on its debt payment, the EU’s credit rating was downgraded from stable to negative, China devalued the Yuan three days in a row, Zero Hedge said 23 stock markets were collapsing and the CBO said America’s national debt is unsustainable. These are meaningful reminders that an economic collapse is on the horizon.
 
In September, the greatest mass migration of people since WW II started and a major factor is the fighting, killing and persecution (kingdom against kingdom) that Jesus said would be a sign of His coming (Matt. 24:7). It is no small thing that multitudes abandoned everything they possessed and risked their lives (and the lives of their children) to flee to safety in other nations.
In September, Russia and Iran moved into Syria. Their presence there is a sure sign that the battle of Gog and Magog could be close and that would mean that the latter days and the latter years have arrived (Ezek. 38:1-5, 8, 16).
 
In September, 193 nations voted unanimously to create a one-world government in connection with their 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. God can speed this up or slow it down, but if He leaves it like it is, the world is less than 15 years away from the Rapture.
 
In October, the World Bank asked all of the nations to get together and come up with one inexpensive way to identify and track everyone on earth by 2030 (Rev.13:16-18). This group of globalists want every nation on earth to use the same system, same kind of equipment, compatible data bases, etc. Their tracking system will lead to the mark of the beast and the death of multitudes.
 
In October, twelve nations completed the negotiations on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). These nations cover 40 percent of the world’s economy. Others want to join, including China. When all of them get in the result will be a one-world economic system (Rev.13:16-18).
 
In October, dozens of Palestinian terrorists attacked Jews in Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu promised some of the victim’s families that he would install surveillance cameras on every road in Judea and Samaria and on all of the major roads in the area.
 
U.S. Sec. of State, John Kerry, visited the area and called for surveillance cameras to be installed on the Temple Mount for 24-hour a day monitoring of activities there. 
 
The PA rejected his suggestion, but Mr. Netanyahu said the cameras will be installed in a matter of days and they will eventually be hooked to the Internet so people can view the events that are taking place 24-hours a day.
 
This is important because the Bible mentions the Two Witnesses that will prophecy for 3 ½ years during the Tribulation period (Rev.11:1-13). The Antichrist will kill them and the entire world will see their bodies lying in the streets of Jerusalem. No one will bury them and all of their enemies will celebrate their death. After 3 ½ days, God will raise them from the dead, call them up to heaven and everyone on earth will see this miracle take place.
 
Surveillance cameras on the Temple Mount in East Jerusalem and in the surrounding area means that people will soon be able to sit in their homes and witness what is going on there. Many who are alive today may witness their resurrection from the dead and their rapture up to heaven.
 
So the return of Jesus is going to come upon the world like a snare, just as he forewarned. If we pay close attention we can know where we are on His prophetic clock.

Surely it Is Near

Surely it Is Near – By Daymond Duck – http://www.raptureready.com/featured/duck/dd191.html
 
There are no words to describe how bad the Tribulation period is going to be; one-fourth of earth’s population will die (Rev. 6:7-8); one-third of those who are left will die (Rev. 9:13-21). Satan will be cast down to this earth, having great wrath because his time is short (Rev. 12:12), and more.
 
It will be a time of trouble such as the world has never seen and there will never be anything like it again (Dan. 12:1; Matt. 24:21). No one would survive except for the fact that God has limited the Tribulation period to seven years (Dan. 9:27; Matt. 24:22).
 
Even though multitudes will die, good comes to those who love God (Rom. 8:28) and a great number, greater than anyone can count will be saved. These new believers will stand before the throne of God in heaven praising Him and His Lamb Jesus (Rev. 7:9-10). Heaven will be filled with rejoicing, shouting and worship (Rev. 7:11-12).
 
But sin will still be rampaging on earth and despite the fact that God will provide 144,000 Jews to evangelize the world (and despite the fact that billions have died), multitudes will still refuse to repent of their sins (Rev. 7:4-8; 9:20).
 
And the Holy Spirit identified the main sins that they will commit: devil worship, idolatry, murder, sorcery (the Greek word is pharmakeion or drugs and most can be legally purchased at pharmacies), fornication and theft.
 
Concerning devil worship, many Christians are shocked because a New York group called the Satanic Temple has been allowed to erect a statue of Satan (Baphomet) in Detroit, MI; they have tried to erect one in Oklahoma City, OK (this may be on hold); they are holding “Friends of Satan” forums, etc.
 
But an increase in Satan worship is just one more sign of where the world is on God’s prophetic clock. Multitudes are going to make it their religion of choice (Rev. 13:4).
 
Concerning idolatry, worshipping idols and images has been a great sin throughout history (in Israel during Old Testament Times, in ancient Greece, in the Roman Empire, in the Roman Catholic Church, in other religions, etc.).
 
But worshipping idols should be expected if humanity is approaching the Tribulation period because all of the lost will worship the image of Antichrist during that awful time (Rev. 13:15-18).
 
Concerning murders, many Christians are shocked because approximately 25 law enforcement officials have been murdered in the first eight months of 2015, Planned Parenthood has become a slaughterhouse that butchers babies and sells their body parts and children have been shot at schools (Columbine, VA Tech, etc.).
 
We are shocked because so many people are being killed in Chicago, Baltimore and other cities; shocked because Christians have been shot in church (the South Carolina church, etc), and because of the on-air WDBJ-TV shootings, etc. But this societal degeneration should be recognized as another important indicator of the coming Tribulation period.
 
And just this past week, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, whom U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning placed in the custody of U.S. Marshals who took her to Carter County jail for contempt of court; for refusing to uphold a court order to issue marriage licenses to gay couples due to her faith as an Apostolic Christian.
 
Concerning sorcery (drugs), marijuana has been legalized in two states and there is a good chance that it will soon be legalized in several other states. There are federal laws that forbid this. But the U.S. Department of Justice has decided not to enforce those laws. 
 
America is groaning under the curse of sin and big part of the problem is people who ignore sin and refuse to prosecute it (Gen. 3:17; Rom. 8:20-22).
 
Concerning fornication, many Christians were stunned for days when the U.S. Supreme Court ignored the Word of God and legalized gay marriage. Many marriages broke up when husbands and wives learned that their spouse is on the Ashley Madison cheat list.
 
Many pastors, Sunday school teachers, deacons and others were forced to resign when their name appeared on the list. These things show that society is rapidly descending toward the fornication of the prophesied Tribulation period society.
 
Concerning theft, viewers were shocked when the Director of Community Relations at the University of Wisconsin-Madison suggested that police should stop prosecuting people who shoplift from Wal-Mart and Target.
 
And as if that isn’t bizarre enough, two professors called for the police to stop patrolling certain areas of the city. Light is being exchanged for darkness.
 
The bottom line is that there is a strikingly unusual uptick in sin and it has a strange resemblance to Tribulation period events.  Surely the Rapture is near and there is no reason for God’s people to despair because Jesus is preparing new homes for His people.
 
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 
 
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know” (John 14:1-4).

The Kurds Are Rising

The Kurds Are Rising – By Daymond Duck –

http://www.raptureready.com/featured/duck/dd184.html 

The great seminary professor and Bible prophecy scholar Dr. Charles H. Dyer said, “Most events prophesied in the book of Isaiah came true during the prophet’s lifetime… But the events concerning Babylon described in the thirteenth and fourteenth chapters of Isaiah were not fulfilled in Isaiah’s lifetime. They have never been fulfilled (The Rise of Babylon, p.162).

In chapter 13, Isaiah was prophesying about Babylon (Isa. 13:1) when he said, “the day of the Lord is near” (Isa.13:6), “the day of the Lord cometh,” (Isa. 13:9) and he talked about “the day of his fierce anger” (Isa.13:13). The prophecies in this chapter begin when the Tribulation period is near and they continue on into the seven-year time of trouble.

When these prophecies are fulfilled God said, “I will punish the world for its evil” (Isa. 13:11). He will do that during the Tribulation period (Zeph. 1:14-16; 2:8; Dan. 12:1; Rev.6-19).

Notice that God said He “will stir up the Medes (not the Medes and Persians) against them” (Isa. 13:17). Babylon “will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah” (Isa. 13:19). Babylon will “never be inhabited” from generation to generation (Isa. 13:20). And satyrs (demons) shall dance there (Isa. 13:21-22).

The Medes and Persians didn’t destroy Babylon by fire and a few people live there today so every jot and tittle of this prophecy hasn’t been fulfilled.

But Babylon will be destroyed by fire, it will become desolate and it will become the home of demons during the Tribulation period. All of that is prophesied in the book of Revelation (Rev.18:2, 8, 10, 19). They are events that will take place just before the Second Coming of Jesus.

There is more evidence of a future fulfillment. Gentiles will help the Jews return to the Promised Land. Gentiles will serve the Jews. Gentiles will be ruled by the Jews. Israel will have peace (Isa.14:1-3).

The world hates Israel today and Israel doesn’t have peace. But Israel will have peace after the Jews accept Jesus.

Isaiah reveals more coming events, but it is important to note that this future destruction of Babylon will be brought about by the Medes (not the Medes and Persians). Who are the Medes? Dr. Dyer said, “They have been fighting the countries of Turkey, Iran and Iraq in an attempt to establish their own independent country of Kurdistan” (p.173). The Medes are the Kurds.

About one hundred years later, Jeremiah prophesied against Babylon (Jer. 50-51). Many commentators apply his message to the Old Testament attack on Babylon by the Medes and Persians. There are similarities, but there are also differences. There is even reason to believe that Isaiah 13-14, Jeremiah chapters 50-51 and Revelation chapters 17-18 are all about the same thing. And few people doubt that Revelation chapters 17-18 are about the future.

Here is a partial list of similarities: 

1) Isaiah chapters 13-14 will be fulfilled close to and during the Tribulation period and Jeremiah chapters 50-51 will be fulfilled about the time that Israel gets saved (Isa. 6:6, 9, 11, 13; Jer. 50:4, 20).

2) A multi-nation attack on Babylon is mentioned in Isaiah chapter 13 and also in Jeremiah chapter 50 (Isa. 13:1-6; Jer. 50:9, 41-42).

3) A later attack by the Medes (Kurds) in mentioned in Isaiah chapter 13 and also in Jeremiah chapter 51 (Isa. 13:17; Jer. 51:11-12, 28).

4) People are told to flee out of Babylon in Jeremiah chapter 51 and in Revelation chapter 18 (Jer. 51:6; Rev. 18:4). 

5) Messengers announce the fall of Babylon in Jeremiah chapter 51 and also in Revelation chapter 18 (Jer. 51:31; Rev. 18:2).

6) Jeremiah chapter 51 says Babylon dwells upon many waters and is abundant in treasures and Revelation chapter 17 says the Harlot sits upon many waters and is very rich (Jer. 51:13; Rev. 17:1-4). 

7) Jeremiah chapter 51 and Revelation chapter 18 both say Babylon has made the nations drunk on wine (Jer. 51:7; Rev. 18:3).

There is more, but here is a big difference: When Babylon is finally destroyed the walls will be torn down (Jer. 50:15; 51:58). The Medes and Persians diverted the Euphrates River and went under the walls. They didn’t tear them down.

This is the point: The fall of Babylon to the Medes and Persians may have fulfilled part of Isaiah 13-14 and Jeremiah 50-51, but it didn’t fulfill all of it. There is more to come and the Kurds (Medes) will play a major role.

In fact, it has already started. The failure of Iraq and Syria has increased the hopes of the Kurds for their own nation. They are the only group that has fought the Islamic State to a standstill. The U.S. has not given them the weapons they want, but they will get more weapons and the U.S. is giving them air cover.

In Jan. 2015, the Kurds defeated the Islamic State forces in a four-month battle for Kobani. In May 2015, the Kurds captured about 220 towns and villages that the Islamic State had taken in Syria. In early June 2015, a Kurdish supported party won several seats in the elections in Turkey. In mid-June 2015, the Kurds seized an extremely important Islamic State border crossing and supply route from Turkey. 

In late June 2015, the Kurds captured an important military base that the Islamic State has held since 2014 and they were only about 35 miles from the Islamic State’s headquarters in Syria. In early July, they took more than 10 more villages from the Islamic State in Syria.

Some say there is not enough time for Babylon to be rebuilt, but the God who spoke the world into existence in six days doesn’t need decades to rebuild Babylon. When He says something will happen it will happen.

It looks like the Rapture can happen any day, but we don’t know when. There appears to be a gap between the Rapture and the Tribulation period, but we don’t know how long that gap is. Much work can be done in a short period of time.

Rebuilt Babylon doesn’t have to be a big city like New York (and the Bible calls it a city not a nation). Ancient Babylon was just 14 miles on each side and much of that was farm land. Some think global trade can be controlled from just a few buildings with super-computers. Also, the False Prophet won’t need a lot of buildings. Whatever is there will burn in one hour.

Just know that the Kurds (Medes) will destroy the city of Babylon at the end of the Tribulation period and they are rising now. Pres. Obama says it will take ten years to defeat the Islamic State, but God can bring them down in one night (especially if they don’t leave Israel alone). Their defeat and the rise of Babylon could be sooner than many think.
