Having lived all of my earthly life in the Era of Antichrist, it is relatively obvious why so many believers are incredulous at the revolutionary prophetic assertion that the contemporary state of Israel is the manifestation of the prophesied Little Horn found in both testaments. This is largely because the idea of the Jewish people as the “chosen” people has been with us for a couple of centuries, so it has long since developed into a tradition.
Part of the tradition is the fact that many who conclude the Jews are associated with the dark power have been vilified as filled with hate – with the now routine chorus claiming they must be anti-Semitic -- which is never the case with the true believer in JESUS CHRIST. However, if one is guided by the Scriptures, the connection between the Little Horn and the political state of Israel is relatively obvious.
In fact, some careful research in the Word of God finds that the party that exhibited the most egregious amount of sheer hate is actually seen to be the Jewish opponents of the Gospel. As an indication of this, many believers, steeped in the false doctrine of Rapture Cult generated Jewish Supremacism, are somewhat baffled by the level of vitriol aimed at the Apostle Paul by the Jews. This is well documented in the New Testament.
The historical record shows that when the Israelite Paul again went back to Jerusalem after his mission work among the Gentiles, the hostility leveled against him by the Jews brought the entire city into an uproar.
“Then Paul…entered into the temple, to signify the [Jewish ritual of purification]…and when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him” (Acts 21:26,27).
Bear in mind that the supposedly “devout” Jews had already killed young Stephen, as they were infuriated with the fact that he was able to effectively show how Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies of the Saviour.
“And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake…and they stirred up the people…and they stoned Stephen” (Acts 6:10,12;7:59).
This is the same spirit that claims the intellectual high ground of free speech, but actually seeks to silence any voice that contradicts the mob narrative.
“That the [body of Antichrist] should…cause that as many as would not [embrace] the image of the beast should be [destroyed]” (Revelation 13:15).
Later when the Apostle Paul, as a former Israelite priest, was solemnly keeping the Old Testament custom of purification – another contingent of Jewish people (of Asia) was determined to incite a mob to the degree that they would again break their own laws against murder.
“And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple…and as they went about to kill him, tidings came about unto the chief captain of the [Romans], that all Jerusalem was in an uproar” (Acts 21:30).
Here we see the beginning of another round of the stirring of the spirits which we’ve previously addressed, so I must digress a bit at this point. In many previous examinations of the Spiritual Architecture in the heavens, we’ve shown how the “house” of the devil is divided into two factions which are revealed to be “Death” and “Hell.”
“If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand?” (Luke 11:18).
JESUS CHRIST conquered that “divided” power at the cross, and testified as such.
“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).
He further stated that He would give unto the Apostle Peter these “keys,” which are linked to the identity of the aforementioned “Death” and “Hell.”
“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 16:19)
It is because of this statement that the Apostle Peter has been given the “keys” of heaven, that the legend of Peter as the figure standing at the gates of heaven has been perpetuated. Typically in these false traditions, Peter is reduced to a physical figure deciding who enters heaven. This diverts attention away from the profound truth that is embedded in these veiled verses – as the Bible tells us about how the divided spiritual factions of Death and Hell were “stirred up” as the “house” of the Devil collided with the Life of Jesus Christ.
In fact, there are multiple Scriptures where the LORD “stirred up” these spirits, so we can examine the context of those episodes, in the hope they will shed some light on their identity in the Spiritual realm.
“And the Lord stirred up an adversary unto Solomon, Hadad the Edomite” (I Kings 11:14).
This particular episode was part of God’s stated agenda to punish Israel for turning away to other gods. Later, the Lord “stirred up” the spirit of the Assyrians, who were destined to carry away the Northern tribes of Samaria as a chastisement for following Jeroboam.
“And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria, and he carried them away” (I Chronicles 5:26).
Notice there are “two parts” that the Lord moved to influence as the text tells us it was Pul and Tiglath-Pileser.
“Moreover, the Lord stirred up against Jehoram the spirit of the Philistines, and of the Arabians” (II Chronicles 21:16)
We also see God “stirs up” the Spirit of His vessels of honour.
“And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the Lord’s offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation” (Exodus 35:21).
One clue to what this is telling us is in the recognition that it is the Lord who stirs up the Spirit of those who moving in His will.
“The Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus, king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of the Jeremiah might be fulfilled” (Ezra 1:1).
The New Testament reveals the mystical identity of Satan’s divided house is comprised of “Hell” and “Death,” and both are destroyed in the Lake of Fire, after they give up their dead to be judged at the great white throne judgment of God.
“And death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works” (Revelation 20:13),
Conversely, when the Jews “stirred up” the people to oppose the Gospel, we see they had become a channel which was receiving their spiritual input from the fallen one.
“But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas” (Acts 13:50).
Throughout the text of the Bible, we see it is the Spirit of Hell, which has taken the world captive through their sin, which incites the secondary Spirit of Death to kill.
In this revealing verse, the “Hell” Spirit in the Jews sought to bring forth the Spirit of “Death” in the “devout women” and the “chief men.” The target was the Life of God in Paul and Barnabas in the Flesh, but in the Spiritual realm, the Death that Hell sought to invoke was actually aimed at the “devout women” and the “chief men.”
In multiple works, we have shown that Hell and Death are allegorically seen as the “two parts” (Zechariah 13:8) that are imaged as the serpents and the scorpions in the book of Revelation. The Spiritual “scorpions” are associated with the False Prophet, who “causes” the world to embrace the “serpents,” the Spirit of Death in Antichrist.
The Scorpions do not kill, they take the vessels they influence captive, and incite them to “worship” the Antichrist Spirit, which does kill them.
“And it was given to [the scorpions] that they should not kill [their captives] but that they should be tormented” (Revelation 9:5).
Conversely, the Spiritual “serpents” are given the authority to kill.
“And the [serpents] were loosed, which were prepared…to slay the third part of men” (Revelation 9:15).
Compare the previous verse in Revelation with the prophecy in II Thessalonians.
“[The restrainer of] the mystery of iniquity…[will] be taken out of the way” (II Thessalonians 2:7).
We have repeatedly shown that the twin spirits of Death and Hell exchanged positions when Christ stirred up the Spirits at His emergence. In the Old Testament, the Spirit of Hell was in the Jews, even as the Spirit of Death was in the Gentiles. When Jesus drew from the components of the flesh and blood Jews as well as the flesh and blood Gentiles to create the third, “new creature” (Galatians 6:15) in Christ, the spirits were obviously in disarray.
“Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man…that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross” (Ephesians 2:15,16).
Not only did JESUS fulfill the prophecies which said he will “bring in everlasting righteousness” (Daniel 9:24) with His crucifixion and resurrection, the “powers of the heavens” were “shaken” (Matthew 24:29), when he “spoiled the goods” in the “house” of the “strong man” (Matthew 12:29).
As the world and Jerusalem was turned “upside down” (II Kings 21:13), the Lord’s curse on Israel was fulfilled.
“And when he saw a fig tree in the way, and found nothing thereon but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever” (Matthew 21:19).
When the Jews summoned the power of Death at the Crucifixion Collision, “the fig tree [of Israel] withered away” (Mark 11:21).
“Then answered all the people, His blood be on us, and on our children” (Matthew 27:25).
Meanwhile, the spirit of Hell -- associated with the False Prophet of Revelation – was flushed out of Jerusalem because it had been “shaken” (Luke 21:26) by the spirit of Life in Christ. Ultimately that wicked spirit, after wandering in “dry places,” determined to return to its ancestral home which he found vacant.
“Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth [the leavened/lukewarm portion of the “Church”] empty, swept, and garnished” (Matthew 12:44).
Thus, the second timeline of the Christian age (AD) began, as the Sequential Recapitulation manifested in the second of three cycles, was initiated.
