Foreword

Just as God visited earth almost 2000 years ago and lived in a

body that we call Jesus, the Bible tells us Satan is likewise going to

visit earth and live in a body that we call the Antichrist. The Bible

also tells us that Jesus is coming again to earth. So we have two very

important visitations: one by God and the other by Satan. The very

important question is: which one comes first?

This book will separate fact (Bible) from fiction (man's theories).

It will help you discover that God told us who will come first and

how to recognize the impostor from the real Christ.

The purpose of this book is to point you to the truth of the

end times revealed in the Bible which has been misinterpreted. If

we are truly living in the last of the last days as many proclaim, the

information contained herein is vitally important because of what is

shortly to come upon the earth. If this is not the time of the end, it is

still important to pass these truths on to future generations.

There are different interpretations about how the end of this age

will unfold. The emphasis in this book will be on God's plan as laid

out in the Bible. His plan was widely accepted by the great scholars

of the Bible such as Matthew Henry, Charles Spurgeon, Adam Clarke,

John Wesley, George Whitfield and many others. These men believed

and taught God's plan which will be examined here.

Just as creative minds of the last two hundred years have successfully

redefined Jesus for millions, some going so far as to strip Christ of His

Deity, others have chosen to alter the end-time teachings of the Bible as

taught by the greats of Christianity, like those mentioned above. It will be

demonstrated that Henry, Spurgeon, Wesley, Whitfield and many others

were not wrong in their beliefs and teachings about this subject.

x n

Questions should be asked such as: "Why are we discarding what

these great men of Christianity believed and taught?" "What new

evidence do we have that they did not have?"

Many beliefs, widely held today, were not supported in the

sermons and writings of these great men of God. Why? Because those

same beliefs had not been created during the lifetimes of these men.

We need to follow Paul's advice: Prove all things; hold fast that which is

good. (1 Thessalonians 5:21).

C.I. Scofield (1843-1921) is largely responsible for changing the

established end-time beliefs held by the aforementioned theologians

and many other giants of Biblical knowledge, all of whom, came

before Scofield. He said in the Introduction to his first edition of

THE SCOFIELD REFERENCE BIBLE published in 1909, "... that

all of the many excellent and useful editions of the Word of God left

much to be desired".

Scofield decided that the King James Bible was inadequate to reveal

God's message in the English language. It needed his help. On the title

page, below the words "Authorized Version" of THE SCOFIELD

REFERENCE BIBLE, he placed the following words: "WITH A

NEW SYSTEM OF CONNECTED TOPICAL REFERENCES

TO ALL THE GREATER THEMES OF SCRIPTURES WITH

ANNOTATIONS, REVISED MARGINAL RENDERINGS,

SUMMARIES, DEFINITIONS, CHRONOLOGY, AND INDEX

TO WHICH ARE ADDED HELPS AT HARD PLACES,

EXPLANATIONS OF SEEMING DISCREPANCIES, AND A

NEW SYSTEM OF PARAGRAPHS".

With his new Reference Bible, Scofield changed what people had

believed. These SUMMARIES of Scofield have been read and elevated

to the status of being "divine", pioneering the way for the widely held

view that the Antichrist will make a seven year peace treaty with the

Jews and then break it after 3.5 years. It will be demonstrated, herein,

that that view and others, widely held today, propagated by Scofield

can not be substantiated by the text of the Bible, only by the notes of

Scofield. C.I. Scofield turned that teaching and others into "gospel",

not Christ, not Paul, not Peter nor John.

William Tyndale (1494-1536) was burned at the stake for

n xi

translating the Bible into the English of his day so that common

people could read the Word of God. Much of Tyndale's work is found

in the King James Version used today. What would Tyndale think

of Scofield's statement that Tyndale's translation "left much to be

desired". Tyndale gave his life for that translation. More importantly,

what would Tyndale think of Scofield's summaries? He probably

wouldn't agree with much of it.

A story goes that a government employee, whose job was to detect

counterfeit bills, was asked if he spent a lot of time studying the bogus

bills. His reply was no. He spent his time studying the real ones. Then

it was easy to spot the counterfeit ones.

Likewise, we will study God's Word, and then it will be easy to

detect that which is contrary to His Word.

An eternal debt of gratitude goes to London-based missionaries,

Dirk Wood and Steve Same, who introduced Bible reading to my

wife Sandra and me. Their method is very simple: start at page one

and read every page until the last page and then start again at page

one. In preparing for this task, I have read every Word in the Bible

from Genesis to Revelation at least ten times using their example.

I have followed the words of Jesus in Matthew 7:7-8. I have asked

and it has been given to me. I have sought and I have found. I have

knocked, and I believe, doors in the Word have been opened.

This book is the product of ten years of diligently searching the

scriptures for answers to questions about the end of the age and

Christ's return. You will see many passages quoted from the Bible.

This is done for two reasons. First, no one can improve upon what

God has written. Second, if you disagree, you are not at odds with

me, but with God.

God is the author of this book. My pleasure has been to serve as

editor. It is a must-read because many of you will not read the Bible,

but you will read much of the "Bible" in this book. Don't remain a

vegetarian, devour the meat that can only be found in His Word.

We will gather evidence from the Bible about the "end of the

age" and how we need to prepare for those events to come upon the

earth before the "coming of the Lord". Today, more than ever before,

xii n

we need to know, with certainty, what God told us long ago about

how the end of this age will unfold. We are living in the days Paul

described here:

For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine.

Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great

number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will

turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 2 Timothy

4:3-4 (NIV)

Many of you will be offended just as the scripture says: Have

I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? (Galatians

4:16(TNIV)).

Also, the Apostle Paul said: ..., Satan himself is transformed into

an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be

transformed as the ministers of righteousness .... 2 Corinthians 11:14-

15.

Take no man's word for anything, mine included. Prove everything

from the Bible. Yes, there are wicked men passing themselves off as

ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The purpose of this book

is to get you to study the book that really matters, the Bible. "All

Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting

and training in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV).

God has only one scenario for the end of the age and His return.

He described it in great detail in His Book. Truth in His Word must be

sought with a hundred times more diligence than the pursuit of money.

Truth worth seeking comes from the Creator of this universe.

My desire is that when our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ comes

after the trying days of the tribulation, I can say to Him, "I did my

best to warn them not to worship the impostor".

Who Comes First:

Jesus Christ or Antichrist

1

William Bell Riley (1861-1942) was known as "The Grand Old

Man of Fundamentalism". Dr. Riley began his ministry as pastor of

the First Baptist Church, Minneapolis and served there for forty-five

years, and another five as pastor emeritus. Dr. Riley wrote a number

of texts on Christian Evangelism and founded the Northwestern Bible

Training School along with an Evangelical Seminary.

Dr. Riley said, "It is my candid conviction that no more serious

obligation rests upon any living preacher of the present century than

that of so clearly and carefully interpreting prophecy as to enable his

people to distinguish the Antichrist from the Christ" (206).

How many sermons have you heard explaining how to distinguish

the Antichrist from the Christ? The Apostle Paul, in his sermon to the

church at Antioch, said:

Acts 13:27 (NIV) The people of Jerusalem and their rulers did not

recognize Jesus, yet in condemning him they fulfilled the words of the

prophets that are read every Sabbath.

This is an example of the importance of understanding. The Jews

did not recognize Jesus as the promised Messiah, although they read

about Him every Sabbath. The Jewish priests had the Words of the

prophet Micah, who predicted that the long-awaited Messiah would

be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2). They had the Words of the prophet

Isaiah who predicted the Messiah would be born of a virgin (Isaiah

7:14). Isaiah, provided in chapter 53, the most detailed description

of the promised Messiah.

2 n Set Up To Worship The Antichrist

Isaiah 53

3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted

with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and

we esteemed him not. 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our

sorrows: 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised

for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with

his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have

turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the

iniquity of us all.

10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; ... because he hath poured out

his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and

he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

The Words of Isaiah above do not describe a King coming in

great power and glory to setup a worldly kingdom. No, they describe

a suffering servant, who came to earth, to take upon Himself the sins

of the world. His kingdom was not of this world. The guilt for not

understanding and believing that Jesus was the long-awaited Messiah

is put at the feet of the educated: the priests, the teachers of the law,

the Pharisees and the scribes. Why did this educated group, who had

the honor of seeing our God in bodily form, miss the truth written

by Isaiah? The lay people of that day did not have the Words of the

prophets, for the most part, or the ability to read them. They only had

the words coming from the mouths of the educated group.

The guilt for unbelief and false beliefs, today, rests

totally with those who have the Holy Words of God. We

must take responsibility ourselves .

As mentioned earlier, William Tyndale died so that we could have

the Word of God in our English language. He is one of many who

have paid an enormous price in order that we could personally have

access to the Word of God. Included in this group are the many, who

have sacrificed much, in order to deliver the Words of God in so many

different languages other than English.

Just as it happened with the coming of Jesus, you will see that the

Word of God tells us the same thing is going to happen again, but this

time, the one many people, even some Christians, won't recognize is

the Antichrist, the impostor of Christ.

The Bible tells us in great detail:

Jesus Christ or Antichrist n 3

The Antichrist will make his appearance before Jesus Christ

returns for His Followers.

How to recognize the impostor, so you will not be deceived.

The Apostle Paul tells the church at Thessalonica, in his second

letter to them, that the Antichrist will make his appearance before

our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ comes and gathers together His

believers.

2 Thessalonians 2:1 (NIV) Concerning the coming of our Lord

Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, 2

not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or

letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord

has already come. 3 Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that

day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness

is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.

Paul told his brethren that "the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and

our being gathered to him" will occur on the "day of the Lord". The term,

"day of the Lord" was well understood in Paul's day. Paul had taught

them about it using the words of the Old Testament prophets: Isaiah,

Ezekiel, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Zephaniah, Zechariah and Malachi.

The phrase "day of the Lord" occurs 18 times in the Old Testament

and 5 times in the New Testament. It occurs a sixth time when you

include "day of Christ" in 2 Thessalonians 2:2, which you should. We

must all agree that Jesus Christ is Lord.

Joel 1:15 (KJV) Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand,

and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. Joel 2:30-32 The sun

shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and

terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever

shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion

and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the

remnant whom the LORD shall call.

The prophet Joel's prophecy above is repeated by Peter in his

message on the day of Pentecost. Peter substantiated that salvation to

all followers of Christ would come on the "day of the Lord".

Acts 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into

blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: 21 And it shall

come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be

saved.

4 n Set Up To Worship The Antichrist

The Life Application Bible, describes "day of the Lord" as follows:

"The 'day of the Lord' is a future time when God will intervene directly

and dramatically in world affairs. Predicted and discussed often in the

Old Testament ..., the day of the Lord will include both punishment

and blessing.&rdq
