Question: Will you please explain why you say the antichrist/satan comes to earth at the sixth trumpet? I do not understand how Satan arrives with the 200 million horsemen.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Barb, thank you for the question and comment. The 200 million or “two hundred thousand thousand” (Revelation 9:16) horsemen do not arrive with Satan. I believe they are a part of the locust army that is partly in action in the Middle East at this time. While the Kenites are also a part of the locust army their role would be better defined as the Generals of this locust army with the horsemen being the foot soldiers.
Satan’s number is six, his mark is all over the sixth seal, trumpet and vial.
Please turn your Bible with me to,
18 “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
Naturally, Satan is the great imitator, you already understand Satan is coming to play the role of Christ. So when does the true Jesus Christ appear? At the seventh trumpet, let us document that.
5 “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.”
Not to over simplify it, but six comes before seven so Satan must come before Christ in order to deceive mankind, in order to play the false Christ role.
In order to properly document this in detail we need to start at the fifth trumpet and we need to understand the events listed under trumpet five do not all belong to the fifth trumpet. I will explain.
1 “And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.”
2 “And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”
Essentially, these two verses conclude the events of the fifth trumpet. While verses 3-12 offer details of the sixth and seventh trumpet. How can we be certain of that? Because verse 5 documents once the locust come out of the pit they only have a five month period to operate. That five month period is the shortened Tribulation Jesus Christ spoke about (Matthew 24:22). Obviously, the Tribulation has not yet started, but I believe verses 1-2 have begun. Take a look at the events in our world today, look at all of the lies which are the smoke that attempts to cloud the truth.
6 “And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.”
This verse belongs to the very end of the sixth trumpet and just before the return of Christ at the seventh trumpet. You can read of this event in Revelation 6:15-17 which speaks of the sixth seal. In Revelation 11:13 where the Two Witnesses have just been raised from the dead which essentially marks the return of Christ and finally Matthew 24:30 where the tribes of the earth mourn when they see the coming of Christ. Why do the people of the earth wish for rocks to fall on them and mourn?
Because they realized at this moment they have been deceived by Satan, they realize they bought into his lies and deception and now have to face the True Jesus Christ.
We should understand there is a king of the bottomless pit we read of in Revelation 9:1-2. Let us document who that king is.
11 “And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
Abaddon means “a destroying angel.” While Apollyon means “a destroyer (that is, Satan).” Satan is the king of the locust army and the angel of the bottomless pit.
Please turn your Bible with me to the final events of the sixth trumpet. The subject is the Two Witnesses.
7 “And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.”
This is one of the events of the sixth trumpet and what happens? The beast that came out of the bottomless pit, that is the king of the locust army, that is the angel of the bottomless pit, that is Abaddon in the Hebrew and Apollyon in the Greek, that is Satan himself. Satan kills the Two Witnesses right before the return of the True Jesus Christ absolutely documenting Satan is cast to earth at the sixth trumpet.
Christ made it abundantly clear to us in Matthew 24:20-30 that the false one would come right before Christ. That false one is Satan who appears at the sixth trumpet.
Question: How do you know if Isis is really a deception, and where could I go to verify? Thank you and be blessed.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Angelika.
ISIS is a deception, there is no doubt about it in my mind. In order to explain that we are going to cover several things so bear with me. First you should understand that the United States also funded Saddam Hussian in Iraq and then eventually removed and killed him. This has been done over and over again and ISIS is no different.
I need you to recall last year around this time. The U.S. was ready to launch military strikes on the Government of Syria because of their supposed use of chemical weapons against the “Syrian rebels“. We documented extensively via news articles that the “Syrian rebels” were in fact foreign fighters. They were not true Syrian natives and further they were and are being funded by the U.S.
Here are two articles to document that last statement.
“The United States has given $278 million dollars to the foreign rebels in Syria. The Obama Administration is not only giving $27 million of your tax dollars to the Syrian rebels, they are acknowledging this “council” as the “legitimate representatives” of Syria. This is absolute forced regime change.”
“U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Thursday that the Obama administration was giving an additional $60 million in assistance to Syria’s political opposition and would, for the first time, provide non-lethal aid directly to the rebels.”
The goal of the U.S. was to fund the rebels in order for them to oust Syrian President Basher Assad. That plan failed, so then the idea that Syria used chemical weapons against the rebels came to the forefront and in the end that plan failed as well. There ended up being more evidence the rebels were using chemical weapons than the Syrian Government. That was per the United Nations.
“UN human rights investigators have spoken to the victims of Syria’s civil war and gathered medical testimonies which point to the Syrian rebels having used sarin nerve gas, while any allegations of its use by the government remain unsubstantiated.”
Russia´s UN Ambassador, Vitaly Churkin said:
“I have just passed the analysis of the samples taken at the site of the chemical attack to the UN Secretary General. It was determined, that on 19 March the rebels fired an unguided missile Bahir-3 at the town Khan al-Assal, which has been under government control. The results of the analysis clearly show that the shell used in Khan al-Assal was not factory-made and that it contained sarin”.
In the end the world did not buy the story of the U.S. and their allies. The imminent U.S. led attack on Syria was aborted. Months later we were told about a new terrorist group called ISIS who had taken over large portions of Syria and Iraq. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel stated,
“They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of … military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we’ve seen.” – You Do Realize that the U.S. Funded and Trained ISIS, Right?
So where did this terrorist organization called ISIS come from and where did they acquire their massive armaments?
- Syrian rebels pledge loyalty to al-Qaeda. Senate votes to approve Obama’s plan to fight Islamist militants.
These armaments have come from the millions of American tax dollars that the United States Government has given them.Listen to the Words of Christ for a moment, “He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad,” (Matthew 12:30). The “Syrian rebels” are not on our side, they are against us and should not be funded by our government. There is effectively no difference between the so called “Syrian rebels” and ISIS.
As we documented in an article the other day titled, “As The World Turns: U.S. and Allies Strike ISIS in Syria. Putin: No Airstrikes Without Assad Approval. Attack Kills Civilians.”
“Rand Paul will describe in this video, 600 tons of arms were given to the Syrian rebels to overthrow the Syrian Government. Yet, during the past year the Syrian rebels have gotten weaker, while ISIS has gotten stronger. How is that possible unless ISIS was actually receiving these weapons… ISIS is simply a different road to the same destination. The destruction of Damascus.“
We should note, NATO admitted that Basher Assad had an astounding 70% approval rating from his people on June 16th 2013. So the United States had no business intervening in a sovereign state with the support of its people.
Further, Assad was just re-elected winning over 88% of the vote with a voter turn out of 73%. To put that in contrast the United States voter turn out reached just 57% in the last two elections. So why is the United States so bent on regime change in Syria?
The United States is controlled by the globalists who partly consist of the children of Satan. Not every nation on earth is controlled by the globalists. Syria and Iran are just about the last hold outs and they must be taken out and placed under the global umbrella in order to usher in the appearance of their father, Satan. I say and mean that quite literally.
In summary: Last year under the pretext of protecting Syrian civilians the United States was going to remove the Assad Government which failed. The lie called ISIS was created and exactly a year later American bombs are falling in Syria. Do not forget Obama already told Assad before yesterday’s attack that if the Syrian Government takes action against American assets in Syria Obama will order the destruction of Syria’s Government.
Angelika, we very well could be witnessing the next phase of Isaiah 17:1 and the spreading of the locust army we mentioned in Question 1…
