    Yes. I won't lie and say I'm looking forward to it, because it will be a terrible time of persecution when most Christians are slain. Technology won't permit any success "hiding in the mountains". The drones will find us wherever we run and I'm too out of shape to run far anyway.

    Good thing the rapture will have occurred prior to that.

    Will this "Adonikam" be resurrected? Will he to be the "son of perdition". Judas Iscariot "went to his own place" according to Acts 1:25. It is my belief from what little I have studied, that Judas Iscariot will be the beast of Revelation 17:8

    I never heard that about Judas.
    The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to rise from the bottomless pit and go to destruction. And the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel to see the beast, because it was and is not and is to come.

    Hello Cygnus, dirtfarmer here

    Jesus said in John 17:12 " While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name, those they thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled."
    John 6:70-71 " Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil. He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve."

    In John 12:6 it is stated that Judas was a thief and this after being chosen by Jesus. In 1 Corinthians 6:10 it is stated that thieves shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

    Revelation 13:18 "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."

    Wisdom comes from knowledge, and all wisdom is from God, from wisdom comes understanding. We were told to "count the number of the beast". This was written in Greek, and the Greek word means more then counting numbers. You simple can't understand this meaning if you don't understand this Greek word. The word is #5585 in Strong's Greek dictionary, and it means to "calculate by counting the stones that are warn smooth over a long period of time."

    What stones? We were told in chapter two, we would receive a new stone with a new name written on it. This word "count" originated from that word "stone" of chapter two of the book of Genesis. These are the only places in the Bible this word for count, or stone is used. So we must enumerate, or calculate these stones worn smooth over a long period of time. "Their rock is not our Rock, and his stones are not our Stones," is what the overcomers will sing, as the "Song of Moses tells us in Deuteronomy 32. God is our Rock, and Satan is the false rock, but which stones are we to count?

    The stones are the number of man, that man is Satan, and if you know Satan you will know his children. Those stones are his children [offspring]. The "mark of the beast" number [6-6-6] then is to count, or know Satan's children over a long period of time. They are the "Kenites", the offspring of Cain, who was the child of Satan, through Eve, who was "beguiled in the Garden of Eden".

    Jesus said in Revelation 2 and 3 that the Churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia were the only acceptable churches to Him, because they knew who the Kenites were. The Kenites were "those who said they were Jews, and lied; because they were of the synagogue of Satan". The seven churches are the seven types of churches existing in these last days. Five are not acceptable to God, while the two are.

    In other words, subtracting 1 from 667 to calculate the number of the beast 666.

    "The above are the verses that speak of antichrist .. None of which speak to a world
    leader or setting himself up in a temple. Nor is antichrist spoken of a single person..
    and not capitalized ."
    __Reba

    Amen to all that.

    Reba,

    You might be interested in reading a passage on the antichrist out of Gentry's
    great and mighty work titled "He Shall Have Dominion."

    Says Gentry:

    "[Benjamin B.] Warfield provides helpful insights into John's teaching on the antichrist;
    [Warfield] makes three declarations concerning antichrist . . .
    (1) He transposes antichrist from the future to the present [of the 1st century]
    (2) He expands him from an individual to a multitude.
    (3) He reduces him from a person to a heresy."
    [These 3 are powerful truths.]

    continuing . . .

    "John's readers are hearing that through antichrist is not yet on the scene, he
    nevertheless is coming. But John informs them that this antichrist is 'now already
    in the world'
    (1 John 4:3) . . . [and in] 1 John 2:18 'As you have heard that the
    antichrist is coming, even now [1st c.] many antichrists have come.'"

    JAG Note: I typed in the above quote from Kenneth L. Gentry's He Shall Have Dominion,
    page 377
    Gentry's section titled The Antichrist [pages 374 - 379 totally destroys the ever popular,
    fantastic, overly-dramatic, incorrect, and highly exaggerated "end times" predictions
    of a coming world leader setting himself up in the temple etc etc etc . Its pure fantasy.

    I thought you might find that interesting, so I put it here for you to read. (Now if I can
    just manage to "ease on out of here" without "stirring up a hornet's nest" I will do exactly
    that :) )

    Subtraction is not "counting", only Addition. When I count sheep, as they jump over the fence, one side is added to, the other subtracted from. Its all "counting sheep."
