evidence and testimony

types of proof

Proof is simply evidence you choose to accept. In years past, an eye witness account could send a man to the electric chair. Today, a case is build around a collection of circumstantial evidence, eye-witness accounts and forensic evidence. All is necessary, if the jury is to complete the job, but forensic evidence is the nail that seals the proverbial coffin shut.

As we present this case for The Coming Christs, not all the evidence will be presented. You the juror will be responsible to ferret out evidence on your own and do your own discovery. All we can do in this hearing is to help establish the time line and proofs we have discovered.

Additionally, we must remind you that doing this job by your own knowledge is fruitless. At this stage of the game, one must have spiritual insight and wisdom from the Holy Ghost because through all this, God wants us to first be seekers of Himself. The mysteries of the Word will overwhelm the worldly-minded, the scholar and the intellectual so that he will only find frustration. We know there are as many theories as there are people but we also know that there can only be one truth. The mystery of Biblical prophecy exists to prevent the ungodly from knowing the things to come. Hollywood tries to know, but what they wind up with is just entertainment.

the case

Yes, two Christs are Coming, One of Calvary and one of Hell. While one will be returning, one will be making his debut. The signs of Christ's coming as a babe were told by the prophets years in advance. Even a bright star directed wise men to the Christ Child. Before His ministry, a second cousin—John the Baptist preached the message of repentance and of baptism as he paved the road for the Messiah. His promised return is documented heavily in the Bible. He will come this time as a ruling King over the entire earth and all will see His Glory and they won't be able to forget it because His rule will last for a thousand years.

Satan is jealous of the Father and proposes to imitate the coming of His christ—the Antichrist. We see his character revealed with prophets, signs and wonders, a bright star, a type of “John the Baptist” and numerous other copy-cat adornments. He will require worship of his subjects, a type of brand just as Jesus will brand His overcomers with His new Name.

introduction of evidence

In 1982, this writer saved from the Wall Street Journal a full page ad declaring that “The Christ is in The World.” A replication of this ad can be viewed here. I have preached and taught from this ad for decades, that the return of Christ and the Rapture of the Saints was imminent and others have written me that they also saw this ad in papers across this nation for years. These are full page ads, taking away the possibility of a prank.

Recently, (July 22, 2009 and later), The History Channel has aired an announcement that said the same words but that the revelation of “The Christ, Master, Teacher” was very near but would soon follow the appearance of a bright star shining night and day. It encouraged those who were interested to call this number—800-870-6108. Then the website giving further information was given: www.share-international.org. If you examine this recorded message and the information in the website, remember the instructions given jurors. Theoretically, one could see The Beast's “John the Baptist,” in the person of Benjamin Crème, who even claims to have come to “pave the way” for the Teacher, which is a likely scenario one could expect.

Most every teacher of prophecy will say that understanding the words of the Prophet Daniel comes before you will understand the Book of Revelation. We can't complete that study here, but only highlight one or two verses. We can trust Daniel and what he records. Three times in the book, the Spirit of the Lord addresses him to the tune of, “Oh highly favored man, Daniel.” Daniel was a straight-forward guy and the Lord honored him. We too can take his word as the highest form of DNA evidence gathered in the most scientific setting. It is proven, uncontaminated and trustworthy. Every word has purpose even though most are skimmed over for lack of understanding. Daniel tells in chapter seven about the vision he had years earlier concerning the coming of events that make up the end of days. We will fast forward to verses 24, 25, and 26 where he speaks specifically about the Man of Lawlessness, The Fourth Beast—The Antichrist because we have to swallow a lot right now. If you have read the replicated ad, called the 800 number and gone to the website, then you are ready for Daniel's explanation of the ORDER of things to come and even the very deceptions The Beast will put over the people.

While the 800 number, newspaper ad, and share-international website references are not considered as reliable sources, they could well lead to the Antichrist, or could also serve as a distraction from the actual presentation of the Man of Lawlessness. For sure—they are Satanic in nature and a sign of the times.

Daniel 7:23-28

23. “Thus he said: 'The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms, and it will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it.
24. As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings.
'25. And he will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.
26. But the court will sit for judgment , and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever.
27. Then the sovereignty, the dominion, and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.
28. At this point, the revelation ended. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts were greatly alarming me and my face grew pale, but I kept the matter to myself.

The order of events shown in these verses is most important to the Church right now. For many of us who thought we would be removed before the Antichrist appeared can see clearly that The Fourth Beast will first devour the whole earth and tread down and crush it. That means he will dominate, rule and take the very breath out of any resistance against him. He will subdue all international powers as well as unified powers. At that point, we are still here.

Secondly, he will draw a bead on God Himself and hurl insults and blasphemies against the Most High God. We are still here.

Thirdly, he will wear down the saints of the Highest One. Still here.

And finally, Daniel tells us in code language how the Fourth Beast will further glorify himself. It is speculation on this writers part, but knowing how jealous Satan is that after Christ came as King of Kings and from that point on, time was recorded as B.C. or A.D., he will assume to number the years as “before or during his reign. “Time” in Bible prophesy refers to one year, thus “time, times, and a half a time” is equated to three and a half years. Any movie or public awareness of the ending of the Mayan Calendar, (Dec. 23, 2012) for example, would only further his “right” to institute such a change. The “laws” must certainly refer to more that civic laws and even national laws—but surely he will grab the greatest glory for himself as during these times, many changes in our atmosphere and solar system will take place as recorded in Revelation. He will have no control over these things but will claim credit as though he had control. Some physicists are predicting a possible inversion of our magnetic poles as has happened with our Sun in 2001, with the next polar shift in 2012, as it shifts mostly every eleven years. If something such as that occurred, he would be the one to claim power of such things. We can only speculate on what type of law he would change but the our biggest error in doing so would be to underestimate the magnitude of those things he would seek and accomplish to change in order to bring boasts and honor to himself. We are still here.

At the end of three and a half years, “the court will sit for judgment and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever.” We are still here--but only for moments. Then comes the return of Christ and immediately God's wrath upon the ungodly.

Following the thirty day pouring out of God's wrath, the sovereignty, the dominion, and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His Kingdom will be an everlasting Kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him. We are back again, only now, as those who overcame The Man of Sin and are as overcomers and rulers on earth for the Millennial (thousand years) reign of Christ.
