Whoso digs a pit will fall therein:
They that roll a stone, it will return upon them
Liars hate their victims
flatterers sabotage trust
The antichrist himself takes over the Jewish temple.
2 Thessalonians 2:4 tells us that
he “opposeth & exalts himself above all
that is called God, or that is worshipped;
so that he as God sits in the temple of God,
showing himself that he is God.
New edicts are issued from the temple.
For example Revelation 13:16–17 tells us
that the false prophet “causes all,
both small & great, rich & poor, free & bond,
to receive a mark in their right hand,
or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell,
save he that had the mark,
or the name of the beast,
or the number of his name.
Spiritually enlightened people recognize
the ominous portent of the hour
they flee to the mountains
God however is still very much in control.
He has set a time limit of 1,290 days on
the activities of the Satanic trinity
Daniel 7:25; 12:6–12
So the age of terror lasts that long
then retribution comes.
Christ returns & seizes the antichrist & the false prophet;
He hurls them headlong into the lake of fire
Satan is incarcerated in the abyss
for a thousand years & afterward is
flung into the lake of fire where he
joins his fellow conspirators
If there is only one thing we learn from the book of Revelation, it is this:
God is still on the throne!
Like the person in Proverbs 26:27,
the false prophet digs a pit & falls in it;
the antichrist rolls a stone & it hits his own head.
As Longfellow phrased the old adage,
The mills of God grind slowly,
yet they grind exceeding small
