Sources of Truth

(To see the truth about the virus agenda of 2020, as well as where we are now heading, see my new book System of the Beast.)

Where do you go for news?

Do you watch Fox? Maybe ABC? Lord forbid, you might even watch CNN or MSNBC. Or, perhaps you simply rely upon the local news stations to enlighten you.

Chances are, whoever you are trusting to inform you about world events is unreliable. In most cases, you are receiving outright lies and propaganda. There was once a time when you could turn on any of the news outlets listed above and receive at least some modicum of truth.

That seems like ages ago.

The mass media sources waved goodbye to facts, truth, and honesty long ago. Now, they simply regurgitate a unified—and typically fallacious—narrative that trickles down to them through the many tiers of corruption that shape public perception: the “reality” that so many errantly accept as genuine.  In virtually all cases, there can be only “one narrative to rule them all.” Just watch this video clip to see an example of what occurs nearly every day, concerning nearly every important issue.

Despite having a few individuals—like a Tucker Carlson or a Laura Ingraham—who at least sometimes report things honestly, even “conservative” outlets like Fox can no longer be trusted. At least, not as a general rule. Even when they are telling you the truth, they aren’t telling you about what really matters.

Accept it or not, the so-called “mainstream/legacy news” is largely poison to the ears.

If you are interested in the real truth about world events—and as a Christian, you certainly should be—then there is really only one place to turn these days: alternative or independent news sources.

Here, I want to share with my readers several places where you can obtain reliable news. I am not simply talking about assessing world events, either. While that is vitally important, what’s equally important is how these events are described. In other words, the lens through which one interprets the daily happenings of our world will determine what is reported. In all the cases below, these individuals or outlets not only accurately describe reality but are able to properly interpret it.

That, my friends, is the magic recipe that truth-seekers should be looking for in their news sources.


The first source I want to share is one that many of you have probably never heard of. If you have, then you are already aware that you have stumbled upon a real gem. James Corbett, of The Corbett Report, is an independent investigator who has been at it for more than a decade and a half.

Corbett’s attention to detail and refined investigative instincts are world class, as are his research abilities. He has a weekly video called “New World Next Week,” where he and his equally astute co-host, James Evan Pilato (of Media Monarchy) share the most important events of the recent days. I guarantee that you will not see the things discussed on this program virtually anywhere else—save for maybe the other sources below—and they are often vitally important.

Corbett’s wheelhouse, however, is the hundreds of videos he has made. If it truly matters, Corbett has examined it. Whether it’s the truth behind World War I, the creation of the Federal Reserve, the Covid-19 “scamdemic” (as he calls it), or myriad other things, James is on it. Personally, I think his four-part documentary on Bill Gates—called “Meet Bill Gates”—is stunning. It’s a must-watch documentary for all people, especially believers.

Trust me, you cannot go wrong with Corbett; he simply gets it, and I have no reservations whatsoever in pointing my fellow Christians toward his capable hands. Check out the many archived videos on his website and regularly take in New World Next Week. Better yet, subscribe to his mailing list so you never miss a thing.


Next up is TruNews. Admittedly, this is the most debatable source on this list. The reason why is simply how many hit pieces you can find about Rick Wiles, the founder and CEO of TruNews. The left-wing media—and even some on the political right—has lambasted Rick for the better part of twenty years. Of course, that only verifies that he is doing something right. While Rick can occasionally wander into the weeds, he is almost always on the right trail.

TruNews covers the events of our time with great accuracy, describing things that you will never see on other news outlets. I appreciate two things about them the most. The first is that they see the entire global picture. That is, they share news stories from Russia, Israel, China, and every other place on earth. It’s not simply about the United States every day. Moreover, they are able to decipher which stories matter, so you aren’t getting irrelevant material.

The second thing is how unashamedly Christian they are. Rick Wiles and his co-host, Doc Burkhart, incorporate powerful spiritual messages and teachings into virtually every show. They sincerely care about pointing others to Christ, and that task clearly takes priority for them. Without question, they are gifted in diagnosing world events as they pertain to the Christian faith. For the Christian, this should be the most vital aspect of keeping up with world events.

The best compliment I can give to TruNews is that it’s the one program worth watching every day. This is partially because they do five shows a week (Monday-Friday), whereas Corbett Report is not a daily news source. But it’s also because it’s simply a great place to get your news. If the folks at TruNews aren’t covering it, then it probably doesn’t truly matter. One more thing should be mentioned. Their upcoming documentary, called “The Greatest Reset,” looks extremely promising. It will document the Covid-19 agenda and include rare interviews with some of the most powerful voices out there.

Watch TruNews on a regular basis and you will be far better informed than 99% of the people walking the planet. You might even want to consider helping to fund them, as part of your yearly charitable contributions.


The next outlet I would like to share is really comprised of several that, when viewed together, function as something of a family of resources. LifeSite News, Vaccine Impact, and Health Impact News are all outstanding sources for truth that incorporate many issues of faith into their reporting.

LifeSite News comes from a distinctively traditional Catholic background and covers much of the truly relevant news of our time. While it does emphasize the current affairs surrounding the Catholic Church and the Papacy, they have also been onto the Covid-19 agenda and the associated corruption from very early on.

Both Vaccine Impact and Health Impact News cover the most up to date matters regarding global health and the various schemes that are constantly being run by our government institutions (like the FDA and CDC). They have covered the Covid-19 scamdemic from very early on, drawing particular attention to how deadly the so-called “vaccines” have truly been. In addition to health-related news, both outlets also cover matters of serious spiritual significance and are a great source for pressing news in general.

Next up is The Stew Peters Show. I will point out my one caveat with affirming this show, and it’s that it has historically been more political than I would like. That may sound odd coming from me—a man who used to (I explain here) strongly support Trump and still completely despises the political left—but I now believe we are “post-political” in 2022; that is, no party or persona can fix our woes (I plan to fully explain my position in another article, don’t worry).

However, Stew Peters has (of late) become increasingly skeptical of U.S. politics. He sees the same corruption at work in both political parties that I (and many others) do, particularly as it pertains to the crises generated by the global deep state. This includes things related to Covid-19, the mass injection campaign, the propaganda (exposed here) surrounding the war between Russia and Ukraine, and the Central Banking cabal, to name a few. Stew constantly has whistleblowers and expert guest on his show that you will seldom hear on other platforms, such as Karen Kingston and Dr. Jane Ruby.

More than anything, I appreciate Peters’ righteous anger about the mass global genocide that is currently being held under the guise of “vaccination.” He has helped to uncover the mile-long list of crimes against humanity that have transpired, and he is absolutely incensed by it. Good for Stew, and good for all of us who listen to him.

The last source for news on this list may be the most unlikely. In fact, I know he is. JP Sears was once something of a liberal comedian who made his living cracking jokes about breakups, social situations, and self-help gurus. He took all comers, and never particularly took any of it seriously; he was purely a comedian, after all.

But this is no longer the case. Sears—whose YouTube page is ironically called “Awaken with JP”—was himself awakened by the COVID-19 scamdemic: what I believe is the great Lie of our time (if not all time). It is clear that God has spoken to JP in the last several years, and he has now become a powerful source of insight for millions around the world. His information is always on point, and his humor certainly adds to the truth bombs he drops on a weekly basis. You will laugh and be highly informed at the same time.

AwakenWithJP – YouTube


There are others that could be mentioned who are certainly worthy of our attention. Steve Kirsch (on Substack), Whitney Webb of Unlimited Hangout, and News Coup (affiliated with TruNews) are three such examples. All these sources will provide genuine news that you will rarely (if ever) hear on legacy news stations or even on your local media outlets.

As Christians, we have a duty to be informed about world events. Not only is this necessary if we are to make proper decisions about our own lives, but also if we are going to take the truth to others. The latter, I believe, is every bit as imperative as the former.

Turn off the mainstream news poison and turn to these sources of truth.

Donald Trump: Savior or Charlatan?

In this article, I am stepping outside of my typical wheelhouse of biblical and theological issues. Some may feel that I am simply stepping outside of my lines, for that matter. However, I feel compelled to address something that God has laid on my heart for some time now.

Having closely followed the Trump phenomenon from the beginning—since he threw his hat into the political ring, that is—I have carefully evaluated both his character and his job as president. Now that we have been without his leadership for a little over a year, I have spent much time evaluating his tenure, as well as his actions since the 2020 election.

More than simply contemplating these matters, I have consulted my most trusted Christian brothers and sisters about them. Through much time, discussion, and reflection, I feel that I am ready to offer my overall assessment of Donald J. Trump.

For those who are interested in this matter, I hope my thoughts can help to inform your own perspective on this rather enigmatic figure.

I want to offer a few disclaimers before getting into this. The first is that I supported Trump for most of his presidency, and I voted on him in both 2016 and 2020. The second is that, if you came to this blog expecting to find only a hardcore defense of the man, then you will be sorely disappointed. At the same time, if you came to read only a savage attack, then you may also be disappointed.

Unlike most people with greater clout, I am not beholden to anyone accept Christ himself; I simply try to tell it as it is. At least, I make every effort to describe the facts as I understand them. I will do the same here and, again, some readers may not like it. Oh yes, I supported Donald Trump’s presidency. Now, I have utter disdain for the man.

Stick around and I will tell you why. But first, let’s be fair and start with the good. And there was good to be found in Trump’s presidency.


The Good

As I mentioned earlier, I voted on Trump in both elections (2016 and 2020). I was not in love with him during the primaries, but I became an ardent supporter when he won the Republican primary and emerged as Hellary Clinton’s chief opponent.

While I no longer consider myself to be a Republican—because most of them are feckless, dishonest, or outright corrupt—I have, do, and will always oppose the political Left. Their agenda is anti-God, anti-Christian, anti-human, and despicable beyond all belief. That’s all I will say here about this matter.

Like many conservatives, I was captivated by Trump for one primary reason: he opposed the Left and, more to the point, what I perceived to be the globalist agenda. His “Make America Great Again” slogan spoke directly to this mission, which was chiefly about making sure things are going well in our country before meddling in other countries’ affairs. In a lot of respects (not all), Trump fulfilled this promise. Even many of his detractors would begrudgingly admit that, up until the scamdemic came along, the economy was booming, unemployment was extremely low, the lives of average people did largely improve, and we managed to avoid entering into new wars overseas. With war hawks like John Bolton (discussed momentarily) advising him, the last of these accomplishments was rather astonishing.

Throughout all of this, the political establishment (the “swamp,” as he called it) threw a never-ending temper tantrum and did everything it could to eliminate the man that George Soros called “a danger to the world.[2] In one unified voice, the political Left, the media, a fair number of Republicans, and globalist elites throughout the world screamed about the need for Trump’s political elimination and prayed to the one-eyed god for his ruination.

For nearly four years, these individuals literally spent every second of every day spewing hatred toward Trump and concocting fraudulent schemes to sabotage him. It began immediately after the 2016 election with “Russian Collusion,” where an insanely expensive and drawn-out investigation resulted in what was apparent from the beginning: there was no collusion, only the possible “obstruction” of an investigation that never should have existed to begin with. Still, that didn’t stop the “Russia, Russia, Russia” banter, and many remain convinced that collusion occurred.

After this debacle—which clearly did “obstruct” Trump from leading the country in many respects—they moved their merry way onto a different “crisis” with a different country: Ukraine. This time, Trump had supposedly attempted to extort the Ukrainian government into digging up dirt on Hunter Biden, the son of his political competitor, Joe Biden. Based on the transcript of a single phone call that was “leaked” by a mysterious “whistleblower”—and was almost immediately released to the people to read for themselves—Trump ended up being impeached by the House of Representatives. He was not convicted by the Senate, however. It didn’t matter that there was no discussion of money or applied pressure, and that the Ukrainian government said as much.

Nevertheless, those who hated Trump will forever be jubilant that he was “impeached.”

That’s not all, of course. Trump was impeached again on his way out of office for “inciting an insurrection” on January 6th, 2021. Questioning the election results and rallying a legion of dismayed supporters to march to the Capitol building to “peacefully and patriotically make (their) voices heard” constituted inciting an insurrection. The truth is that Trump was right on the former point: the election was a complete carnival act that smelled in every way imaginable. I discussed the problems with the election at length in this video. Also, never mind the fact that the “insurrection” involved a largely unarmed group of citizens, that the only lethal shot fired was by an officer on an unarmed Trump supporter (Ashli Babbitt), and that the entire event wreaked of a set up.[1]

Along with these unprecedented impeachments were a slew of lesser charges. Trump was physically unfit to be president. Trump was so mentally unfit to be president that we might need to invoke the 25th amendment to get rid of him. Trump destroyed the electoral process. Trump destroyed people’s faith in the media. Trump was even responsible for hurricanes. I’m not kidding. Let’s not forget the most repetitive charges of all; Trump was a homophobic, misogynistic, masochistic, racist, bigoted bully.

And he was really mean, too!

Yet, at almost every step, he defied them and continued to erect one of the greatest economies the world has ever seen. When the Democrats remained ambitious about allowing all people to enter the country through our shattered southern border, Trump was steadfast in saying that “without borders, we don’t have a country.” Accordingly, he did increase border security and built a portion of the southern border wall (though not nearly to completion). While the globalists decreed it necessary to ratchet up our efforts against the lie known as man-made climate change, Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accords. He even halted sending U.S. funds to the World Health Organization (WHO) mainly because, well, they’re completely dishonest half the time and are actively creating corruption the other half. At that point, the U.S. was the organization’s top benefactor, followed by none other than Bill Gates. It was a big deal, and an even bigger statement.

I was recently discussing Trump with a good Christian friend from Australia—who largely shares my view of this issue—and it was difficult to adequately describe just how brutal Trump’s opposition really was. While he knows much of it, I feel that it took living in the U.S. to fully see the carnage that took place for four years. This wasn’t your typical partisan, presidential bashing. This was nothing short of a personal and political lynching. Day in and day out, Trump was vilified and demonized. If you listened to the media and many government officials, Trump was ruling hell and using Satan as his lava pool boy.

Throughout what was easily the harshest and most vitriolic political onslaught ever seen in the United States, Trump managed to keep a lot of his promises and steer the country in an overall positive direction, particularly economically. That is truly remarkable.


The Bad

I will not delve far into Donald Trump’s past. That is, into his life before politics. Any honest person should be able to admit that he was a rich playboy with a rather dubious record of behavior. If you are looking for proof of this, just take a look at Jeremiah Cohen’s video on Trump.

Here, I am only concerned with his presidency and what has transpired ever since.

Not only did I vote for Trump twice, but I spent the better part of his tenure defending him. I regularly spoke to his detractors, armed with facts to extinguish the mainstream narratives about him. I was probably annoyingly supportive of Trump to those around me. I believed in his mission and supported him. As I mentioned in the last section, there were reasons for this.

I do not regret voting on Trump, nor do I regret having defended him.

But obviously there’s a “bad” section for a reason, too. I truly lament saying this, but there is an incredible evil associated with Trump. I will get to that after I describe some of his lesser, but still important, problems.

One complaint I had with the former president was that many of his hirings were dreadful, and this was obvious from the very start. Trump nominated former Alabama Senator, Jeff Sessions—a man who was supposed to be one of his most ardent supporters—to be his Attorney General. This proved to be perhaps the most disastrous decision of his presidency. Goaded into believing that he had been compromised by his former dealings with the Trump Campaign, Sessions decided it was necessary to recuse himself from the entire Russian collusion matter, which occurred immediately after the 2016 election results were clear.

In doing so, he opened the door for the Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein (another Trump nominee), to appoint a special counsel and begin a two-year witch hunt for something that had literally no basis to begin with: something that was founded on a contrived “dossier” that was bought and paid for by Hellary Clinton and her esteemed associates. Make no mistake about it: the Russia collusion investigation effectively mired Trump’s first two years in office. It was a constant distraction that also destroyed his reputation among the gullible masses.

The short of it is, hiring Sessions cost Trump in unspeakable ways. However, even Trump’s next pick for AG, William Barr—who effectively did nothing positive in his time as AG and was another fixture of the Washington machine—lambasted Trump after the events of January 6th. Considering that other AGs of the past have spoken of themselves as the president’s “wingmen,” Trump’s selections were clearly top notch.

Then there was Anthony Scaramucci. Trump hired him to be the White House Director of Communications, a gig that lasted a whopping ten days. In no time flat, Scaramucci needed to be relieved of his duties because he’s simply unhinged, but specifically because he attacked the administration that had just hired him. After being fired, Scaramucci continued his tireless crusade to defame Trump, appearing on any media outlet that would host him, calling Trump a traitor to the country and suggesting that he had severe mental problems.

John Bolton was perhaps the worst hire of all, simply because Trump knew exactly who he is and still chose to empower him as the United States Security Advisor. Bolton is known by both sides of the political aisle as one of the biggest war hawks in D.C. politics. As such, he literally epitomizes the “swamp creatures” that Trump promised to get rid of. Bolton tirelessly pushed for conflicts overseas, and Trump finally gave him the axe in September 2019. Like Scaramucci, Bolton proceeded to go on a crusade against his former boss and the nation’s Commander in Chief. His tell-all book, The Room Where it Happened, received praise only from those who shared his hatred for Trump, of course.

I would even argue that hiring his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to be a Senior Advisor was a terrible decision for several reasons. First, a president hiring his son-in-law to a high position in government is in poor taste, and it set Trump up for much unnecessary political scrutiny. More problematic is that Kushner is completely beholden to the Israeli government and pushed Trump toward backing every single agenda that Israel could come up with, whether good or evil. If you don’t see this as a problem, please see my blog titled “Is Israel God’s Chosen Nation?” Things in Israel aren’t what many of us have been told, but I digress.

The point is, many of Trump’s selections were not only terrible but were detrimental to his presidency.

Getting back to Bolton and the “swamp” issue, this brings up my second biggest problem with Trump’s presidency. The man who campaigned on “draining the swamp”—oathing, pledging and promising to do so—did absolutely nothing to drain the D.C. swamp of its corrupt bureaucrats. Far from it. Instead, Trump helped to fill D.C. with swamp creatures. Besides the people previously mentioned as bad hires, someone needs to explain to me why Trump allowed Anthony Fauci to call the shots on the scamdemic (the COVID-19 “crisis”). Not only is Fauci another prime example of a swamp creature—he has served as the head of the NIAID since the 1980s—but he is one of the most corrupt monsters on the planet. It is true that Fauci was already there upon Trump’s arrival, but Trump willingly permitted him to help lead the Coronavirus Task Force. I have written about Fauci and his connection to the origins of COVID-19 (and the greater narrative) in my recent book, System of the Beast.

(But don’t take my word for it; RFK Jr. just wrote a tome—The Real Anthony Fauci—exposing this political and pharmaceutical gangster for the demon that he is.)

Trump knew about most (if not all) of Fauci’s dark accolades. Did that urge him to get someone from outside the swamp—like Dr. Peter McCullough, as one example—to lead the Coronavirus Task Force in its initial construction? No sir. Instead, he stuck with Washington’s highest paid and arguably most satanic figure: a man who is attached to Bill Gates’ hip and is totally beholden to the global pharmaceutical enterprise.

Unacceptable, to say the very least.

The simple reality is that Trump did not drain the swamp. He in fact made no effort to do so. Worse, he helped to fill the swamp with more despicable creatures.


The Heinously Evil

Fauci takes me to my last complaint with Trump, which by no means suggests that I do not have others that could be mentioned. This, however, is by far my biggest grievance. This is something that—and I cannot emphasize this enough—is the very definition of evil. Trump is in on this evil, from its foundations to its many machinations.

Those who are familiar with my recent works probably know exactly what I’m getting at. For those who aren’t, I am talking about his vaccine obsession. From the very moment it was suggested that we could magically whip up so-called “vaccines” to crush the COVID-19 scamdemic, Trump was in. All in.

Trump has been calling the creation of the vaccines a “medical miracle” since day one. In fact, he said it’s “one of the greatest miracles of the ages.” He has called himself the “father of the vaccine.” He has suggested that people should call these injections “Trumpcines,” in honor of the only man on earth who could have made it all possible. He has tirelessly peddled the vaccine gospel—along with the blind guides of today’s so-called “evangelical” church—every time a microphone is shoved into his face. Since the election of 2020, he has even berated his own supporters if they express even an inkling of concern about his miracle cure.

All this, when these injections have already proven to be by far the deadliest “vaccines” ever to be administered to the public. The CDC and FDA’S own Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has presently recorded well over 20,000 deaths associated with the jabs. For comparison, this is more deaths than were caused by all FDA approved vaccines over the last 30 years, combined!

Just look at this chart of the VAERS data, which has only continued to extend upward since it was made.

Clearly, the number of reported deaths to VAERS skyrocketed when the COVID-19 kill shots were introduced to the public.

EudraVigilance—the EU’s vaccine adverse event reporting system—has recorded nearly 40,000 deaths (and countless injuries) due to the vaccines. Even life insurance CEOs are speaking up, saying that we are now seeing a 40% increase in deaths among working age people (18-64), which is beyond unprecedented. Worse, this number could be as high as a 65% increase among 18-49 year olds.

As if these numbers were not damning enough, we actually know that the real figures are much higher. Several independent studies have been done (here’s one), evaluating the accuracy of VAERS. The results are consistent: VAERS only captures between 1-10% of the actual vaccine-related adverse events. The same is almost certainly true for EudraVigilance and similar systems.

This means that the actual number of deaths in the U.S. from the “miracle” shots are at least in the hundreds of thousands, and they would globally be in the millions.

Yes, the “Trumpcines” have been exactly what Dr. Peter McCullough said they would be: “It’s going to go down in history as the most dangerous biological, medicinal product rollout in human history.”[3] 

It would be literally impossible for Trump to not know most (if not all) of this, yet he continues with his vaccine crusade. In this, Trump is without question an integral part of the globalist death machine that desires complete governance over the earth. He has boastfully called these shots “miracles,” and he is right; they are false miracles.


The Bottom Line

In truth, I have had more trouble trying to “peg” Trump than I have with anyone else I can think of. In some respects, he remains a mystery to me.

However, I am not sitting on the fence on this one. I can definitively tell you where I stand on the 45th president of the United States and can answer the question posed in the title of this article: Is Donald Trump a savior or a charlatan?

Let me definitively affirm that, from my perspective and based on the previous points, he is certainly no savior. This is true politically, ideologically, spiritually, and in all other meaningful ways. Though I mentioned his many positives, the fact is that Trump did not drain the swamp, clean up D.C., restore justice within the country, fix the electoral process (clearly), or anything of the sort.

(Granted, with the incredible state of decay we find our government in, perhaps most of this is simply impossible for any mortal being to accomplish. But again, he didn’t try to fix a lot of it)

Further, Trump did not lead the country into any type of spiritual renaissance, despite his vague handwaving about God and his love for the Bible. If you think he meant these things, I again urge you to watch Jeremiah Cohen’s video here.

The more difficult question is, was he a complete charlatan? Put another way, was he simply one of “them”—that is, one of the globalist elites—from day one and only pretended to oppose their interests on specific points?

The truth is, I simply don’t know. As I have pointed out multiple times, Trump remains something of an enigma to me, despite my best efforts at understanding him. However, let me offer my personal theory—my spiritual “hunch,” as it were—before closing this out.

The two primary options with Trump—as I see things—are as follows:

  • 1) He was, as previously mentioned, always one of the globalists who was masquerading as the leader of a counter movement.
  • 2) He was not initially a part of the globalist establishment but became part of it at some point late in his presidency.

Though I would not bet so much as a bag of animal crackers on this take, I believe the latter is the most likely scenario.

My primary reason for rejecting the idea that he was always “one of them” was laid out in the first part of this article. The absolutely insane and unprecedented spewing of hatred and the unbridled commitment to ousting him that was demonstrated by the political Left and the globalist elite just doesn’t align with the view that Trump was secretly on their side. Now, I fully believe these people are capable of massive conspiracies and political misdirection: creating “order from chaos,” so to speak. I detail in System of the Beast that this very thing has occurred with COVID-19 and the world’s reaction to it.

However, even I cannot fathom that the four years of endless political and character assassinations were all simply a smokescreen. I could be wrong but it’s difficult to imagine that type of overall planning and acting occurring so bilaterally, with such a tremendous number of players involved.

Obviously, this means that I think Trump likely started out on the “right side” of the globalists vs. the world power struggle but was taken in by their malevolent agenda.

But how could that happen? In a word, COVID. The virus scamdemic was the Great Lie of our time (perhaps of all time). It fooled the ungodly—which Trump always was—into giving their weight and power over to the globalist’s Beastly System, which is chiefly about depopulation and total world control. In fact, I think there is a clear “spirit of stupor”—a mass Delusion—that was sent upon those who bought into the Lie.

“For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie . . .” (2 The. 2:11).

This is a spiritual matter far more than a health, technology, or economic matter.

Playing on Trump’s incredible ego—which even his most ardent supporters must recognize that he possesses—Fauci, Gates, Collins, the NIH, the CDC, the WHO, and other powerful voices, completely snookered him into the entire agenda. To this very day, Trump believes that his actions in promoting the experimental injections saved millions of lives and prevented a complete world collapse. He endlessly preaches the vaccine gospel, berating his own supporters if they show even the slightest concern about its safety or efficacy. Remember, Trump dubbed himself “the father of the vaccine.”  

He could provide a miracle cure. He could save the world from the virus. In short, he ultimately saw the COVID-19 “crisis” as an opportunity to “Make Trump Great Again.”

The worst part is that Trump knows—he must know—about the incredible number of adverse events and deaths that have already come out of these little “miracle” injections. But he hasn’t let those details get in his way, even when it comes to having children desecrated with these experimental gene therapy injections. 

There can be no more scathing an indictment than this. This alone should urge all followers of Christ to get off the Trump train and seek to expose his corruption. In my estimation, if you understand the data I presented earlier and are still for these death shots, then you are also of the spirit of antichrist.

Trump is not a savior and it’s difficult to tell how long he has been a charlatan. What I can say is that, now, he has become an enemy of life, truth, and the very people that he claimed to defend.

This was not an easy conclusion for me to reach, but it was the inevitable one.

Thank you for reading this lengthy article. I am especially curious to hear your thoughts on this assessment and on Trump in general. Please leave a reply in the comment section below.

They covered up the identity of Ashli Babbitt’s murderer for more than a year. Many of the “protestors” were seen at Antifa and BLM rallies in other locations, meaning they were there simply as posers to fan the flames. The whole thing smelled to high heaven.


False Beliefs about the End Times (Part 2)

[Be sure to check out my new book on the most important issue facing believers (and all people) today. Check out System of the Beast by clicking this link.]

In part one of this two-part series, I discussed two beliefs (with a bonus view) about the end times that I feel are false: the belief in a secret Rapture, wherein believers are stolen away from the earth prior to the period of Tribulation, and the view that there will be a literal thousand-year reign—called the “Millennial Reign”—upon Christ’s return. When closely examined, the Bible does not support either of these notions.

Instead, Scripture consistently reveals that the Second Coming will completely and emphatically mark the end of our current age. The dead will be judged, the forces of evil will be destroyed, believers will be given their new “spiritual bodies,” and God will establish the new heavens and a new earth. As C.S. Lewis famously said: “When the author walks on to the stage the play is over.”

Here in part two, I want to discuss three views that are closely related but are inconsistent with the teachings of Scripture. Nevertheless, these beliefs are still held by many Christians who are interested in eschatological matters (those things pertaining to the “last things” that will occur in our world). The three views are as follows:

  • The belief that the re-establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was a critical part of the end time prophecies
  • The belief that a third temple must be built in Jerusalem before Christ can return
  • The belief that there will be a mass conversion of Jews to Christianity in the last days

Since all three views are related to how the current nation of Israel is connected to the end times, they are obviously closely connected to one another.

Before going on, I strongly encourage you to read my earlier article called “Is Israel God’s Chosen Nation?” It specifically addresses how we can view the overall place that the modern-day nation of Israel (again, modern-day) holds in God’s Kingdom. The information presented may be difficult for many to cope with, but it is equally difficult to refute.

With that said, let’s get to evaluating the three beliefs at hand.


Unlike part one, I am going to first describe the three beliefs of this article and then corporately evaluate them. Again, the reason why I am taking this approach is that the views are so closely related—even though they are technically distinct—that rebuking them individually will inevitably lead to much redundancy. It simply makes better sense to evaluate them simultaneously.

The first belief is extremely prominent among Christian Zionists[1] from all denominations and backgrounds. For many, the establishment of a new State of Israel in 1948 was a tell-tale sign that the last days are at hand.

John Hagee is well-known for putting forth this view. Over the last 20 years or so, one can scarcely count the number of times that Hagee has championed Israel as being the linchpin of God’s final plans for the world. For a clear example, he said this concerning the city of Jerusalem:

“God has made that (Jerusalem) His habitation. And He is going to set up his throne there. And He is going to rule the world from there, with a rod of iron for a thousand years . . . Jerusalem is the place that God calls home.”

Notice that Hagee also incorporated the view that Christ will reign in Jerusalem for a literal thousand years. I covered this in part one and, yes, this belief is also in serious doubt (putting it mildly). It is worth mentioning that Hagee—in the same sermon referenced above—went so far as to say that he had instructed Donald Trump that, if he would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, he would “step into political immortality.” Well, we all know how that prophecy turned out . . .

Moving on, perhaps another contributing factor is that Revelation 20 describes the forces of evil encircling the “camp of God.” The biggest problem here is that much of this chapter seems most logically to be a metaphorical description of things. I described in part one that the “thousand years” certainly fits this mold, as does the very language of “beast,” “dragon,” and “false prophet”; all three symbolically stand for something else (a global empire, Satan, and a corrupt religious system). With that said, taking the description about enemies surrounding the “camp of God” to literally pertain to the current State of Israel is several steps too far.

But I will withhold further comments until I later assess the three beliefs.

The second belief is that, after Israel is “restored,” a third temple must be built for Jesus to return. The foundations of this view are almost exclusively derived from the Old Testament, in texts like Amos 9:11, Isaiah 2:2-3 and, as I mention momentarily, the Book of Daniel. The pastoral team at Endtime Ministries have said: “The Bible prophesies, in many places, that a Third Temple will be built in the near future.” They say “the near future” because they feel that the Lord’s return will be soon, a point I agree on (though for different reasons).

Like the “secret Rapture” theology, third temple theology is largely the product of the dispensationalist movement. As an example, consider Simon Downing’s words in his book, World Empire and the Return of Jesus Christ:

“Dispensationalism also accommodates into its teaching the belief that the Jews must rebuild their Temple” . . . “The building of the ‘Third Temple’ is therefore at the heart of Dispensationalism; even though it recognizes that the Beast will desecrate it before the coming of Christ and the Millennium.”

(Those interested in the origins of dispensationalism can see Witherington’s discussion here on the Rapture, and I discuss the Rapture at length in this article.)

Some have even gone so far as to suggest that the third temple will be built for the Antichrist, and that a fourth temple will need to be built before Christ’s return. This is based on certain interpretations of the OT texts, specifically the suggestion that the Antichrist will “put and end to sacrifice” (Dan. 9:27). As those who believe this interpretation posit, that could only happen if there was a (third) temple where sacrifices were being made.

Overall, this belief is part-and-parcel with the notion that the reestablishment of Israel is a predicted (and necessary) end time event. If there is an Israeli nation, there needs to be a temple also. Such is the thinking, anyway.

The third belief is that there will be a mass conversion of Jews to Christ before his return.

A major area of the Bible that is used to support this view comes from Paul’s epistle to the Romans. There, he discusses the identity of Israel as seen through the lens of the new covenant. Concerning the Gentiles being “grafted in” to the tree that is Israel, Paul says:

“I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in, and in this way all Israel will be saved” (Rom. 11:25-26).

To some, this suggests that the Jewish people will—at some point in time—come to Christ and no longer experience the “partial hardening” that Paul spoke of.

Without question, the premise of having a restored Israeli nation and a temple to match feeds into this view. If one believes that Israel being a sovereign nation that possesses its own temple is an end time expectation, then it would make sense that it would be inhabited by many Jews who “come around” and profess Jesus as Lord. Again, that’s if the first two beliefs are true.

There are many more examples that could be used to illustrate these three beliefs, but this provides the necessary foundation to assess them. As you can see, all three of these views are connected. I would almost say that they are, for all intents and purposes, interdependent.

But are they true? Does the Bible really teach any of these beliefs?



In my estimation, the strongest impetus for accepting all these beliefs comes from the fact that Israel was God’s chosen nation throughout the OT. This is an irrefutable and important fact, to be sure. As Jesus said, “Salvation is from the Jews.” However, it is something else altogether to believe that the nation of Israel—that is, a particular group of people who happen to live at a particular location on Earth—continues to hold this status.

In all sincerity, affirming this is a genuine case of living in the past. There are many reasons why we should reject this interpretation of Scripture.

For starters, let’s consider what this means historically. Do the Jewish people of the last two thousand years get to immediately “pass go” and collect eternal life? Have they been ushered into God’s Kingdom simply by virtue of their being born in the right place or to just the right set of parents? Put succinctly, does geography and/or ethnicity determine salvation?

According to the apostle to the Gentiles—and a man who professed that he was a “Hebrew of Hebrews”—the answer is no. In fact, Paul made this very plain:

“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Gal. 3:28).

Clearly, this is the New Testament view of things. However, I would go a significant step farther and state that the Old Testament reveals the same message: being born a Jew—in and of itself— has never merited an individual salvation. Scripture is replete with examples where Jewish believers were cut off from God and the community for their lack of faith and their disobedience. As a startling example, God did not spare an entire generation of believers from dying off in the wilderness: “The LORD’s anger burned against Israel and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until the whole generation of those who had done evil in his sight was gone” (Num. 32:13).

We could also look at 14,700 who died on account of the plague God sent (Num. 16:49), those who died in “Korah’s Rebellion,” and the many times the Jews were given over to destruction by groups like the Babylonians, Persians, Philistines, and the like.

For that matter, God did not even spare the rebellious angels from a destructive fate (2 Pet. 2:4).

On a final note concerning this issue, Paul even went so far as to say that he simply hoped to “arouse some of (his) own people to jealousy and save some of them” (Rom. 11:14). If his hope were to save some of them, it logically follows that not all of them were saved simply by virtue of being Jewish. Being Jewish, in and of itself, does not merit salvation. It never has.

Another major problem with these three views—and specifically the view that a third temple must be erected—is that the formation of such a structure is wholly unnecessary in every possible way. Nowhere does the Bible state that there must be a third temple before the Messiah can return. Concerning the previously noted idea that a temple must exist so the Antichrist can “put and end to sacrifice,” nothing could make less sense. Here is a newsflash: Jesus’ death on the cross did eliminate the need for sacrifice! Among other things, the Book of Hebrews spells this out clearly. All of chapter 10 speaks to this, but specifically note verses 11-13:

“And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet.”

Christ’s sacrifice rendered the entire sacrificial system obsolete. There is no need for a temple to perform sacrifices ever again, nor does there need to be one so the Antichrist can “put an end to sacrifice.”

Paul did say in 2 Thessalonians 2:4 that the “man of sin” will “set himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” This also indicates to some that a third temple will be necessary. However, given the fact that the temple of Paul’s day was the same one that was later demolished in AD 70 by the Romans, there is a much more rational interpretation of what he meant here. Elliot’s Commentary explains the likely meaning well:

“(The phrase) ‘taking his seat in the temple of God,’ is a poetical or prophetical description of usurping divine prerogatives generally: not the prerogatives of the true God alone, but whatever prerogatives have been offered to anything ‘called God’.”

Paul’s expression was not about the “man of sin” sitting in a literal temple structure within Jerusalem. Rather, it was an expression showing that he will attempt to usurp everything connected to God, in all ways. To those living at the time, this could not be stated more strongly than to say that this dark figure will seek worship in the very structure that housed God’s presence within the OT.

The temple’s central purpose was to house the presence of God. It was perpetual evidence that Yahweh reigned amongst His people. When Jesus died, the temple veil was torn (Mt. 27:51), representing an end to the old system of things. Jesus was the Son of God incarnate in human form. With Jesus “tabernacling” on earth, God was no longer reigning from a house of stone but was walking among us! Further, God’s Spirit now resides with each of us who believe in Christ; WE are the temple of God (1 Cor. 3:16).

No matter how you look at it, there is no need for a third temple. Not now and not ever. Even if one were to be constructed, it will not be “God’s temple” but man’s. Further, it will have nothing to do with fulfilling prophecy.

While these points are certainly important, let’s get to the heart of the issue (as I see it). Perhaps the primary reason why all three of these beliefs are wrong is that Jesus and the apostles—particularly Paul, who spoke directly to this issue—were clear that God’s salvation narrative had moved beyond the land of Israel and past one ethnic group of people.

Jesus certainly understood that he was fulfilling the OT prophecies about the Messiah, one of which being that he would be a “light to the Gentiles.” The Gentiles—that is, those who were not ethnically or religiously Jewish—were to be the beneficiaries of Christ’s coming, since the Jews were already in a covenant relationship with God. Since those who are ethnically (or even religiously) Jewish make up a miniscule part of the Earth’s population, Jesus chiefly came to open up salvation to the entire world. This is clearly depicted within many passages of Scripture.

Of course, the very nature of Paul’s apostleship was also built around this mission. Paul was sent specifically to preach to the Gentiles.

Concerning the idea that there will be a mass conversion of Jews to Christ, as supposedly explained in Romans 11:25-26 (and misapplied OT texts), this does not take into account the greater context of Paul’s words. He says that Israel has “experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.” However, he adds that “in this way, all Israel will be saved.” What “way” is that, though? He describes that in the previous section. The Gentiles are being “grafted in” to the “tree” that is Israel. In other words, the Gentiles who follow Christ are being accepted into the fold of salvation, right along with the Jews who had been saved.

All people who are saved are now “Israel.”

Paul says this plainly earlier in Romans. “It is not as though God’s word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel” (9:6). Paul’s words say nothing about a mass conversion of Jews to Christ in the end times, nor does anything else in Scripture.

All this proves an important point: The contemporary Zionist movement is misguided because its adherents have missed (or dismissed) the central purpose of why God called Israel to begin with. Simply put, Israel’s purpose was to bring about the fulfilment of the “descendants” promise that God made to Abraham (Gen. 17:1-5). With all-due respect—yet with the brutal honesty I am always compelled to operate with—this is also what the Jewish people have failed to (or chosen not to) understand since the time of Christ.

God did not call Israel to alone comprise His Kingdom of saints and those whom were purchased back from Satan.

I would go so far as to say that it was never about that particular group of people, but about God’s plan to reach all people. When God called Abram—who was later renamed “Abraham”—He did so with a universal purpose. That is, Abraham would begin God’s process of restoring all of humanity. Don’t take my word for it, but listen to how Paul put it:

“For this reason it is by faith, in order that it may be in accordance with grace, so that the promise will be guaranteed to all the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all” (Rom. 4:16).

It’s also worth noting that numerous parts of the OT declared that God was open to accepting non-Jews into the fold. Isaiah 56:6-7 describes God’s invitation to “foreigners” (Gentiles) to serve Him and participate in salvation. Exodus notes that “a mixed multitude” left Egypt with the Israelites (Ex. 12:38). Gentiles who were willing to be circumcised and follow God’s covenant were often permitted to join in Israel’s blessings (Ex. 12:48-49).

If you had only the Old Testament to go on, it would still be obvious that Israel was not God’s only interest. Affirming this does not make one anti-Semitic, or anything of the sort. Rather, it simply means that they understand what the Bible describes as the overall purpose of the nation of Israel. To be sure, God made His covenant with the ancient Hebrews (Ex. 20) .

But to what end? That is the key question.

As the previous passages illustrate, the Bible reveals Israel’s purpose very clearly. God called Israel to be His vessel: the instrument by which He would bring salvation to the world and restore what was lost through the Fall.

Tying the end time expectations to a physical nation of Israel, the construction of a third temple, and the conversion of modern-day Jews to Jesus—as though they are more valuable to God than any other group—not only misses the point of Christ’s coming but destroys the core teachings of the biblical narrative. The same can be said of any view positing that the physical plot of land called “Israel” still possess some type of mystical or divine power: that the soil itself is intrinsically holy.

Both the Old and New Testament teach that God was, is, and always will be interested in the salvation of all people (who will believe). This is true regardless of ethnicity, gender, social status, geographical location, or any of the like; “For there is no partiality with God” (Rom. 2:11). In fact: “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Gal. 3:28).

The bottom line is that, in the work of Jesus, God’s plans for humanity extended beyond the land of Israel and the Jewish people. These matters are not the focal points of the end time discussion, as much as some would insist that they are.

For more about Israel’s place in history, the NT, and the present day, I will once more point you to my article “Is Israel God’s Chosen Nation?


[1] In essence, Zionism is the worldview that the nation of Israel held—and more importantly, continues to hold—the unique status of being God’s “chosen nation.” As such, the Jewish people have a divine right to the land and must be supported regardless of how they go about occupying and maintaining it. Typically, there can be no deviation from this belief on virtually any point.

False Beliefs about the End Times (Part 1)

[Check out my brand-new book, System of the Beast. It reveals the real agenda behind the coronavirus pandemic and how it is being used to institute Satan’s final plan of global governance.]

In previous articles, I have discussed certain expectations that the Bible describes as accompanying the end of our age. I have written about the identity of the “beasts” of Revelation 13, and how we might understand the “mark of the Beast.” I also described Paul’s discussion in 2 Thessalonians 2, concerning both the Lie and the “strong delusion” that will precede Christ’s return. I divulged the nature of the apostate church and identified some of its key figures and characteristics. Further, I covered a variety of important beliefs in the article “End Time Essentials.” 

As important as it is to grasp the key biblical teachings about the last days, it may be equally critical to understand the false beliefs that are commonly associated with them. In this two-part series, I want to describe five views that, despite being widely taught and accepted, simply cannot be derived from Scripture. If that is indeed the case, then these beliefs have no place in the life of a genuine believer.

Here in part one, I am going to cover the following topics:

  • The view that Christians will be taken away in a secret, pre-Tribulation “Rapture”
  • The belief in a literal, 1,000-year “Millennial Reign”

In addition to these, I am going to throw one more in as sort of a bonus. Though the “bonus” belief is far less consequential than the other two, it is still worth exploring.


Let’s take these in turn, starting with the so-called “Rapture.”

Here we see masses of believers being “raptured away” from the earth to live with Christ at his return.

Though I spoke extensively about this matter in another article, I will highlight several important things. The first is that the word “rapture” is never mentioned in the Bible. This, however, does not mean that we can immediately dismiss its existence. Plenty of words are not specifically used in the Bible that nevertheless speak spiritual truths. Among these are words like Trinity, Eucharist, and even Easter (except, oddly, in the KJV!). The Trinity is synonymous in thought with “Godhead,” just as the Eucharist and Easter are synonymous with the Lord’s Supper and Resurrection Day, respectively.

The problem with the Rapture is not its name, but in how it is taught. Chiefly, the problem lay in the teaching that believers will someday be taken away to live in heaven, and that this will take place prior to the great “Tribulation” (the time of suffering and chaos at the end of the world). The belief is that these “raptured” believers will then return again with Christ some period of years later (3-1/2 or 7 years, typically), after the Tribulation period has been raging.

This entire notion is primarily derived from 1 Thessalonians 4:17. Following his description of how Jesus will return from heaven, Paul says this: “After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever” (my emphasis).

The word translated as “caught up” is a form of the Greek harpazō, and this is the term that would later be translated into Latin as rapturo. As you might have imagined, from rapturo came the English term “rapture.”

This generally describes how the term came to be, and it most essentially means to “catch,” “steal,” or “carry off.” However, the form of harpazō used in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 literally reads, “we will be carried off.[1] Specifically, Paul intended it to mean that believers—at the Second Coming, or the Parousia—would be lifted into the sky to meet the King of kings as he once again enters our world.

In fact, this meeting will serve as something of a welcome home party. The term Paul used in 4:17 for “to meet” is apantēsin. It is used only three times in the NT, and each time it refers to meeting someone and then returning with them.[2] Again, the purpose was to return with them. This is like going out to meet a newly arrived official so you can travel back together. Believers will be what Ben Witherington III calls “the royal entourage,” or the divine escort party.

If we are properly understanding the context and the language Paul used, it becomes clear that this passage has nothing whatsoever to do with being swept away from the earth to live in heaven. Rather, it is about welcoming the One from heaven back to earth. In fact, the grand goal of the Christian faith and the climax of human history is about God making a new heaven and earth (2 Pet. 3:13, Rev. 21:1).

Being zapped away to heaven—either at death or at Jesus’ coming—is not part of the plan, and the Bible is emphatic about this.

[In order to avoid redundancy, I provide more proof for this in the second false belief (below)]

While 1 Thessalonians 4:17 has clearly been key in propagating this false teaching, a contributing factor is Jesus’ words in Matthew 24:40-41. There, he discusses the events surrounding the end and uses examples from everyday life to make his point:

  • “Two men will be in a field; one will be taken and the other left.”
  • “Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.”

To some, this suggests that people are taken away to heaven before the Tribulation while the rest of the world is left to endure it. Here again, this is a flawed interpretation. In this text, Jesus is referring to both the unexpected nature of his return and the speed with which these events will occur. His return—and the subsequent separation of the righteous and the wicked—will come as a surprise to many and will occur and in a flash. We know this because Jesus’ basis for comparison was the Great Flood:

“ . . . they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

In an instant, one person is taken and the other is left. Just as Noah and his family were lifted off the earth—later returning to a “new earth,” of sorts—so shall believers be caught up to meet the Lord at his return and then return to a new earth.

As Jesus explained through his Flood analogy and Paul clearly states in 1 Thessalonians 5:4, this day should not take believers by surprise but will certainly do so for nonbelievers.

Like the events described within 1 Thessalonians 4:17, those in Matthew 24:40-41 have nothing to do with the righteous being expedited off to heaven before the time of Tribulation. That will already have occurred; as Jesus said, “the one who endures to the end is the one who will be saved” (Mt. 24:13), and “if those days had not been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short” (24:22).

Elsewhere, Jesus further clarifies exactly what will be occurring when he comes back. In the parables of the Sheep and the Goats and the Wheat and the Tares, he explained that the righteous and the wicked are separated at his return, when the Judgment is at hand.

This means that Jesus is not coming to snatch believers away only to return again (some years later) to judge the world. There is one return, and it marks the very end of our age. At that time, the living and the dead are judged, the forces of evil are destroyed, and the new earth is forged.

There is simply the Second Coming (the “Parousia”), and there will be no need for a third or fourth.

The unfortunate truth is that many within the church have been sold a false bill of goods on all this. They have errantly been told that dying and going to heaven is the end-goal of the faith and that a butchered view of the Rapture is the endgame of our world. Escaping before the earth descends into chaos has become the focal point, even though all the saints of the past—including the apostles themselves—were not spared from suffering, persecution, and even death.

A pre-Tribulation Rapture is a belief that is propagated and embraced because it is emotionally appealing but not because the Bible supports it. When this motivation is exposed, it becomes evident that modern-day Rapture theology is nothing more than theological comfort food.

For those interested in how this false view of the Rapture came to permeate so many churches—despite being devoid of biblical evidence—see my article here.


The next false belief I will cover in part one involves what is often called the “Millennial Reign,” which is the period spoken of in Revelation 20:1-10. Specifically, I want to explain why I believe a future 1,000-year reign of Christ is both unscriptural and illogical.

Here, Christ reigns (supposedly) for a literal 1,000-year period after his return.

In general, there are three primary views that can be held regarding how the millennium is viewed: 1) premillennialism, 2) postmillennialism, and 3) amillennialism. The premillennial view holds that Christ returns to earth prior to the millennium—“pre” meaning before—where he will gather the faithful for a literal 1,000-year period. At that time, he will proceed to rule over believers while Satan is “bound” in the Abyss and, well, something happens to the unsaved masses (discussed later).

The postmillennial view—“post” meaning after the millennium—typically holds that the thousand years is a symbolic period that marks something of a golden age of Christianity. Whether it is viewed to begin with the resurrection of Jesus or at another point later on, the world gradually improves as time unfolds and the gospel is preached. In this sense, Christ ultimately returns to a world that has gradually become heaven on earth.

Not only is this view rather unpopular, but it’s counter to all the biblical descriptions that the state of the world actually worsens prior to Christ’s return (Mt. 24, Eph. 5:16). Further, Hebrews 2:8 states that “at present we do not see all things subject to him (Christ).” It’s also clearly not how our present world is operating, as we don’t observe things getting better and better. Far from it.

For these reasons, I will not discuss more about the postmillennial view. I believe it to be the most unlikely of the major views, and probably by a landslide.

I will discuss the amillennial view more at the end, but it suggests that the millennium is also a symbolic period. However, amillennialists hold that the world declines prior to Christ’s return and that the millennial reign began with his resurrection and ascension.

This is a general explanation of the three, and there are various points of divergence within them. For example, there are premillennialists who don’t believe in a literal thousand-year reign, even though most tend to. There is grey area, to be sure. In fact, this issue has been debated since the early days of church history among thinkers like Irenaeus, Justin Martyr, Papias, and others. For more on this point, I refer you to Dr. Thomas Schreiner’s video here

Of the three, it is the premillennial view—just like the “pre-Trib” Rapture view—that has arguably become the most prominent among mainline Protestants (and a fair number of Catholics). As stated at the beginning of this section, this is the view I am specifically targeting here.

If this is such a debatable matter, how can I view premillennialism and its future 1,000-year reign of Christ to be false? The reason is simple: if you interpret Revelation 20 in this way, then the text will be at odds with everything else in Scripture.

If we were to set Revelation 20 on the shelf for a moment—not dismissing it, but merely pausing our evaluation of it—then I would suggest that one could not find virtually any evidence for the premillennial view elsewhere in the Bible.

Jesus and the apostles were rather clear about what will occur at the end of our age: Jesus will return, the living and the dead will be judged, the powers of evil will be thrown into Gehenna (hell), and the new heavens and new earth will be established. This is all seen as one corporate event and not as a piece-meal that Jesus puts together over the course of several return visits.

I cannot show every piece of evidence here and now, for the sake of time, but just consider these examples:

  • Jesus’ parables of the Weeds and the Tares and the Sheep and the Goats explicitly state that the righteous and the wicked will be separated—in the everlasting sense—at his return.
  • 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10 clearly states that the wicked will be punished with everlasting destruction—not with years of earthly tribulation—when Jesus returns. As Paul said, this will happen “on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people” (1:10a).
  • Jude likewise placed these events at the return of Christ (1:14-15).

Even consider other parts of Revelation itself. In 22:12, Jesus said this: “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to reward each one as his work deserves.” This strongly suggests just what the passages above do: that the Judgment and separation of the righteous and the wicked occur at Jesus’ arrival, and not over the course of several visits.

All these examples reveal that there cannot be multiple returns and a series of judgments. Jesus returns just once; ONCE! As the Nicene Creed states: “He (Jesus) will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.” Those who constructed our great creeds picked up what the biblical authors were laying down; there is one return and one Judgment.

With this said, the key question is this: should we evaluate Revelation 20 in light of the entire canon of Scripture, or should we evaluate all of Scripture in light of Revelation 20?

The answer should be obvious. One of the few incontrovertible rules of biblical interpretation and hermeneutics is that we cannot take a verse or passage in isolation but must view it alongside the rest of the biblical teachings. We cannot “cherry-pick,” so to speak. As I try to point out as often as possible, so much disagreement—and even heresy—could be avoided if we all dedicated ourselves to this principle.

Allowing one particular interpretation of Revelation’s “thousand years” to determine our entire eschatological perspective—usurping all other texts in the process—is a complete abuse of Scripture and any sincere attempt at interpreting it. Sadly, I feel this is exactly what many have done. A literal 1,000-year reign, which begins at the Second Coming, just doesn’t mesh with anything else in the Bible. In fact, it turns most of what Jesus and the apostles said on its head.

More than that, there are also serious logical problems to contend with in the premillennial view. To me, the most glaring issue is that there is no way to make sense of what occurs during that time. For the saved, the explanation boils down to something like this: “They will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years” (Rev. 20:6b). In the existential words of Porky Pig, “that’s all folks.” Absolutely nothing else is known.

However, the issue of what happens to the unsaved during the thousand years is far more perplexing.

Satan is supposedly bound in the Abyss—that is, the infinite and unfathomable depths—and believers are reigning with Jesus, but what is everyone else doing? What of the aforementioned “unsaved masses,” which will unfortunately exist at the end? Are they going to work, raising kids, grocery shopping, hosting or attending parties, and posting videos on TikTok? If so, being unsaved doesn’t seem to be all that bad. Were they left out of the Kingdom, just to continue living in a world much like the one that has always existed?

Or, are they living (and dying) as hell breaks loose for 1,000 years? If so, what is the purpose of that? How are people continuing to populate the earth for the duration of the millennium, when the world would supposedly be in unparalleled turmoil? Why are those children being born destined for damnation, when those living before that time were not?

And there’s more . . .

If Satan is not out deceiving the nations (20:3), then would the nations be living righteously? If so, why are they not saved and living with Christ? If they are still corrupt, then what is the purpose of binding Satan, and what does that say about his role in our world? In my way of thinking, he wouldn’t seem to have any real influence at all.

Are people able to come to faith during that time? If so, why not allow the world to go on as it was before the thousand-year reign began? Why not continue to allow the “weeds and the wheat to grow together”? If people can indeed be saved, then what was the point of the Second Coming? Clearly, it wouldn’t represent some type of “cutoff” for salvation.

The questions are seemingly endless. “Illogical” is far too tame of a word, in this case.

When you get into the details of a literal millennial reign that commences upon Christ’s return, none of it makes sense. This may be why so few premillennialists offer any type of thorough explanation of what occurs during the thousand years or why it exists. Not only is there virtually no biblical information to go on, but there seems to be endless logical problems to contend with.

As for me, I fall closer to the amillennial view. Despite it being poorly named—as the term literally means “no millennium”—this view is the only one that aligns with the rest of Scripture. It affirms that the thousand years is a symbolic period, and that it occurs prior to Christ’s return rather than after. On this view, the thousand years—which is simply code for “an extended era of time”—began when Christ conquered sin and death through the Crucifixion and Resurrection.

In this event, Christ’s once-and-for-all sacrifice on the cross destroyed the damning power of sin (for those who follow him), thus also hampering—or “binding”—Satan’s power. After being raised from the dead and ascending into heaven, Jesus has since reigned over the church from the heavenly throne (Heb. 8:1; 9:11, 24). In other words, the church age had begun and the power of the Spirit—working in God’s people—functioned as a restraint on Satan and the forces of evil; Satan was “bound to the abyss” for a time (20:3).

To be clear, this simply restrained Satan’s power but did not eliminate it. As Elliot’s Commentary accurately describes (20:7): “The binding of Satan implied restraint put upon his power and freedom of action; the loosing means the removing of these restraints.”

Satan remained the “god of this world” and continued to have a very real (and often devastating) effect on the earth. This means that, had Jesus not conquered sin and death and then sent the Spirit into the world, things would have been much worse.

In my estimation, we are now seeing what “much worse” looks like, and this fits the view. Toward the end of the “Millennial Reign,” Satan is released from his prison to deceive the nations and unite corrupt humanity against God.

Friends, I believe this is exactly what we have seen over the last several years.

Yes, it seems to me that Satan has been released from the Abyss.

If this view of the millennium sounds farfetched, consider just one more thing: there are other parts of Scripture that describe a “thousand” somethings in a symbolic way. Psalms 50:10 says “the cattle on a thousand hills” belong to God. 91:7 says “A thousand may fall at your side,” referring to the protection God provides the righteous. 90:4 says “A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.” More familiar to most readers is 2 Peter 3:8’s allusion to the previous verse, which reads almost verbatim.

Along the same lines, Joshua 23:10 seems to use this number as a reference to a mass number of men: “One of your men puts to flight a thousand, for the LORD your God is He who fights for you, just as He promised you.” This is similarly seen in 1 Samuel 18:13, 2 Chronicles 1:6, and is especially obvious in Job 9:3 and 33:23.

Clearly, there is a sufficient precedent to interpret Revelation 20’s “thousand years” as a symbolic period. Given the choice between a view that contradicts most other parts of Scripture (premillennialism) and a view that fits rather naturally with it (amillennialism), the decision should be easy.

Revelation 20’s “Millennial Reign” is best understood as a symbolic period that began with Jesus’ death, resurrection, and ascension and ends when Satan is unleashed from the Abyss.

As I described, I fear that the latter has recently happened.


Bonus Time!

As previously mentioned, the final false teaching is not as pervasive or damaging as the previous ones but is certainly worth addressing. Unlike the Rapture, this matter precedes the return of Christ and will signal that it is near.

Scripture reveals plainly that, in the end times, a magnificently devious figure will appear to deceive the world and persecute believers. It calls him the “man of sin,” the “son of perdition,” the “little horn,” and even describes him simply as the “mouth” of the Beast from the Sea (Rev. 13:5). While the Bible does not call him the Antichrist, this has become the most popular term associated with him (and that’s OK, I think). We know that he will be the opponent of God and His people, and will be controlled by Satan (2 The. 2:9). Further, John revealed that the “spirit of antichrist” was already in the world in the first century and that many lesser antichrists existed (and still do).

The major flaw I see with how many understand this figure concerns how he will be perceived. Put succinctly, it is often taught that the Antichrist will be a wildly popular and much adored figure. As the well-known pastor, Skip Heitzig—of Calvary Church (NM)—told his large congregation, the Antichrist will be the “most interesting man in the world.” This, of course, was a play on the Dos Equis commercials that were popular several years back. Skip even had a cardboard cutout of the man from the commercials, which he referenced throughout the sermon.

Heitzig is far from alone in this belief about the Antichrist. The prolific Christian author, John Phillips, made these comments about this evil figure:

“The Antichrist will be an attractive and charismatic figure, a genius, a  demon-controlled, devil-taught charmer of men. He will have answers to the horrendous problems of mankind. He will be all things to all men: a political statesman, a social lion, a financial wizard, an intellectual giant, a religious deceiver, a masterful orator, a gifted organizer.”

Certainly, some of this will necessarily be true of such a figure. But I wonder: can all these descriptions really be gleaned from the Bible? Will he be attractive, a “charmer of men,” a “social lion,” and so forth? Such statements lend themselves to the view that the Antichrist will be adored by the world.

Unfortunately, no verse or passage of Scripture tells us that the Antichrist will be adored by most people, much less by all people. In the instances where he is discussed, we can only glean the following things:

There is nothing to suggest he will be remarkably good looking, charming, an unparalleled problem-solver, or anything of the sort.

Now, it is true the Revelation 13 says that many will follow (and even worship) both the dragon (Satan) and the Beast from the sea (13:4). That is, if they are not believers. However, it does not say that the world will adore (or worship) the “mouth” that comes from it. This parallel is as close as one can get to finding a biblical basis for the belief that the Antichrist will be loved by all the unsaved world, and even it doesn’t get us there.

It’s also true that a great many people will buy into the Antichrist’s schemes and deceptive appearance, just as they do now with demons like Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates (who very well might be the Antichrist). But both logic and history tell us that no person—regardless of their social, political, or religious stature—can be adored by almost the entire world. It simply doesn’t work that way, particularly in our time. Name one president that was loved by both sides of the aisle. Name a prominent figure of any type that was, for that matter.

If you think you have come up with one, research the person and you will find that public perception was/is pretty well split.

To that point, I would argue that Nero Caesar served as the initial manifestation of this figure in Revelation 13, and he most definitely was not loved by everyone in the Roman Empire. He may have been feared and forcibly revered by most, but he was certainly not loved and adored.

The world is comprised of good and evil people—the righteous and the wicked—and the two groups always see the world and its “great figures” differently. No person can, in principle, be celebrated by all ­or even by most. After all, the world’s most powerful and influential figure (Jesus) is easily its most polarizing. If this is true of Christ, then it’s probably safe to say that the Antichrist will be rather polarizing, too.

Sorry Skip.

Don’t forget to check out System of the Beast! I sincerely believe that it may be the most important and pressing thing I have ever worked on.

New Book Release: “System of the Beast”

I am releasing a new book that succinctly details the incredible events of the last two years, as well as how they relate to several vital prophecies of Scripture. This is not only a time capsule of the insane procedures that have characterized the world’s response to the “pandemic,” but the book explains the much broader (and darker) agenda that spawned it.

System of the Beast should be eye-opening for any reader who is open to receiving the truth. Below is the book description, for those who would like some additional explanation. Grab this book now by clicking here or on the title above; you’ll be glad you did.

The System is here. Are you ready for it?

What if a globally coordinated effort to control humanity has been in the works for years, if not decades? What if the “system” produced by this joint effort was taking shape before our very eyes, right here and now?

The hard truth is that it is taking shape right now, and in the plain view of the public.

In System of the Beast, Brian M. Rossiter navigates through the sea of lies and deceptions involved within the virus agenda of 2020 and reveals the startling truth behind it all. Far from being a seemingly endless series of errors and coincidences, there is clear intentionality in nearly every detail of the world’s first (and only) truly global crisis.

More than a mere transitory phenomenon, the events of the last two years are proving to have everlasting significance. God revealed long ago that there would someday be an end to our current age. The Bible explains that the last days will involve a great apostasy, a grand Lie, and the arrival of a Delusion that will seal the fates of many. Likewise, it warns about an emerging system that will “mark” the people of the world as members of Satan’s counter-church. As Rossiter carefully details from both Scripture and the unique events of our time, all these prophecies are becoming realities.

The World Beneath (Part 3)

Though I had intended the last installment to be the final one, I have been compelled to write just one more article on this theme. As I will show, I recently came across something that must be presented to others.

In part one, I described the background of the world’s hidden religion, which is indeed only hiding in plain sight. Freemasonry—Satanism’s “magic cloak”—has infiltrated the church, the entertainment industry, politics, and was even a vital influence in the founding of the United States. The novus ordo seclorum—the “new order of the ages”—is clearly displayed on the one-dollar bill, along with the all-seeing eye. If you have been following my blogs, you would know that the “great eye” unquestionably symbolizes Satan’s gaze upon the world.

In part two, I showed the connections between Freemasonry and Satanism in great detail, doing my best to make my case while pointing readers to Altiyan Childs’ mind-blowing video. As much as I do believe that the blog proves the link between the two religions, his documentary leaves no doubt. No remotely honest person can watch it and ignore the innumerable examples that are shown.

Believe it or not, it was a trip to my hometown’s rather large and renowned festival a couple weeks back that convinced me that The World Beneath (Part 3) is a necessary conclusion to the first two acts. While viewing the yearly arts competition gallery, I was taken aback by what I saw. In fact, several friends and family members approached me about it, having noticed the same macabre themes.

Here, I want to show you something powerful and tragic. This is where the rubber meets the road, so to speak. Not only has Satanism—largely through Freemasonry—infiltrated our governments, the many corrupt people of Hollywood, and those who decide much about what our culture will be, but it has trickled down through the many tiers of corruption and landed in our backyards.

Our children—the most precious and innocent part of our world—have finally been infected with this dark virus. Satanism is the real virus of our time, and it’s far deadlier than anything else humanity has ever faced. Contracting it means that one will die the second death.

What follows are pictures that I personally took from the art gallery. I will make an explanation below each one, clarifying the problems with it. So, be sure to read the captions below each set of pictures. Afterwards—just to drive it all home—I will show their connection to some of the hideous signs and symbols put forth by those in Hollywood, which were covered extensively in part two. If you aren’t alarmed by the artwork of our youth, then maybe you will be when you see what they are imitating.

With that said, let’s get to it. And bare this one thing in mind: all these pictures were created by people between the ages of 14 and 18. All of them.

Clearly, these two images are getting at the same point. Covering the eye—with a mask in this case—is a prominent way of darkening it. This emphasizes the one-eye symbolism in Freemasonry and Luciferianism. It hearkens to the “all-seeing eye” of Satan (sometimes called the “eye of Horus”).
In their own unique ways, all three pictures emphasize or darken one eye. Whether it’s a hand, a mask, hair, paint, or anything else, the meaning is the same. Note the picture on the top right. The other half of the person’s face is a yellow serpent. I wonder . . . why a serpent?
These pictures don’t simply emphasize the “eye” but explicitly portray it. Note the picture on the left, specifically. You have a great eye shedding a bloody tear onto a blood-soaked world, above what appears to be the U.S. Capitol building. For good measure, notice the serpent to the right of the building. Yes, another serpent. Who do you suppose this is alluding to?
More homage to the great “eye,” with other interpretive images.
A black figure gazes out from within the eye. Is this some type of spirit being, like a demon?
Here, we see some very creative ways of emphasizing the “all-seeing eye.” Is there any doubt that it’s the focal point of these paintings?

Clearly, each of the teens responsible for creating this “artwork” had a common goal. There can be no refuting that they were attempting to emphasize the “all-seeing eye.” This is the same eye depicted on the U.S. one-dollar bill and a host of other things. This is the eye of Satan.

The question must be asked: where are our young people getting this obsession? Why are they creating such macabre artwork?

Well, they say that “art imitates life” (and vice-versa). I have no idea if this is universally true, but it is certainly true at times. This is one of those times. Take a look at some comparisons between their artwork and the people our teens are trying to emulate. Recall that I covered these examples (and more) in part two.

Asia Argento, Neil Young, Grimes, Marilyn Manson, and Kesha all clearly emphasizing or darkening one eye. Also note the satanic symbolism at work. Crystal clear, right?

See any similarities now?


How about in these images?

Jefree Star and Mr. 007 himself (Daniel Craig) show us exactly what covering the eye is all about. Do you doubt that it’s the same thing being portrayed in the children’s artwork above it?

If it’s still not clicking, consider this connection:

Katy Perry demonically boasting the one-eye symbolism in just about every way possible.

Do you see it now? The “eyes” in Perry’s pictures are the same as the “eyes” above. It doesn’t get any clearer than this. Trust your own eyes and accept what you are seeing.

In case you are wondering, I can assure you that this type of artwork is not exclusive to any one festival or exhibit. It’s also not simply attributable to one local school or a set of students. Since taking these photos, I have already seen others like them in various locations. I would wager that the same themes would be discernible at nearly any art show across the country, if not the world.

It is my opinion that our youth—for the most part—do not understand what these signs and symbols mean. In general, they are not knowingly paying homage to Satan through their artwork. Rather, they spot their beloved idols doing these things incessantly. I mean incessantly. The young and impressionable see these signs on album covers and billboards, at concerts, in their favorite films and TV series’, and most definitely on social media pages. Their worlds are literally inundated with it.

Just take a look at some of the more popular album covers they would come across online or in a department store.

Kesha’s album cover features the eye and nude body. Bieber covers his eye. Perry’s familiar image covers both eyes and emphasizes the one in her mouth. Eilish’s white eyes cast her as being possessed. The Weekend drips blood from his mouth like a cannibal. Halsey emphasizes the one eye, which was mimicked in the earlier photos by an adoring student.

Satanism has so devoured our culture that one cannot help but see it everywhere, even if they don’t comprehend its dark meaning.

The people whom our kids now celebrate are devils: soulless creatures made so by their wicked and perverse master. The “god of this world” owns them. He is not the lord of the cosmos, but he is the lord of our culture and most of its people. There just can’t be any denying this point. The Bible told us and the world is proving this brutal reality. I have tried, in my own small way, to illustrate the dire situation that we now find ourselves in. Others have as well, Altiyan and Jeremiah Cohen being the two best examples I know of.

Pardon my French, but this should scare the literal hell out of you.

In 2021, the kids across the street—or even down the hall—are making Satan’s dark kingdom known to us. If you don’t find this to be both horrifying and extremely alarming, then you must accept that you are part of the problem. No man or woman of God can gaze upon these monstrosities without feeling physically ill. These demonic signs and symbols are being ingrained into our children’s minds!

I will say this just one more time: the world is not what you think it is, and it’s not run by who you think runs it.

Where else do you need to see this, and who else needs to show it to you? If you don’t awaken to the state of things now, then will you ever?


I now want to conclude this three-part series with a sincere plea. I ask that you watch Altiyan Childs’ extensive video revealing the nature of Freemasonry. I do not say this lightly: The Holy Bible is the most important thing you will ever read, and Altiyan’s video may be the most important thing you ever watch. The original was removed from YouTube long ago, and it exists now on the platform only through re-uploads (but for how long?). Thankfully, it has already reached millions around the world and is available on other platforms (like BitChute).

Furthermore, I strongly urge you to look into the works of Jeremiah Cohen. Start here and then follow the very long (and dark) “rabbit trail.”

And one more thing: keep both eyes open.

Missing Verses: 15 Beliefs the Bible Doesn’t Teach

The Blind Guides of the Apostate Church

The Bible told us this day would come.

“Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, regarding the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,  that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit, or a message, or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.  No one is to deceive you in any way! For it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction . . .” (2 The. 2:1-3)

“At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,  but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved” (Mt. 24:10-13)

“For the time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance with their own desires, and they will turn their ears away from the truth and will turn aside to myths (2 Tim. 4:3-4).

As these verses clearly illustrate, the last days will involve a great apostasy. Many will defect from the faith and teach others to do so. Many will turn away from the truth and embrace lies. Many will be deceived.

In case it wasn’t apparent throughout the last several decades, the events of the last two years have clearly exposed the brutal reality that the church is falling away. More appropriately stated: it’s in freefall. Over the course of time, the spirit of antichrist has infiltrated our religious establishments to the point that little remains of orthodoxy; much less of wisdom and discernment. In evaluating the way that the world’s most respected church leaders have responded to the great Lie of our time—being themselves taken captive by the Delusion that has come upon the earth—this fact becomes unavoidable. Allow me to show you a few examples of what I mean. Let’s start small and work our way to some more egregious exhibitions.

Max Lucado, the highly respected Christian author and pastor, contracted Covid-19 in July of 2021. Despite being full vaccinated with the now “approved” Pfizer shots in the spring of the same year, he proceeded to become very ill. In his words, “I don’t think I’ve ever been this sick.”[1] Did this experience cause Lucado to doubt the power and efficacy of the vaccines? Not hardly. Instead, he concluded that his experience was “a case study on the power of the vaccine.”[2] Even though the shots did not prevent him from getting the virus, or even from becoming dangerously ill, he was still singing their praises. Since the vaccines “saved his life,” Lucado has been diagnosed with an ascending aortic aneurism, a potentially life-threatening problem. But don’t worry, this cannot be vaccine related; nothing ever is. It’s also worth noting that Lucado supported Jen Hatmaker—a woman known to promote all manner of sexual debauchery—and even gave “woke” sermons over the last two years concerning the false narrative of systemic racism.[3] Other than all this, he should be regarded as an icon of the Christian faith.

T.D. Jakes, the megachurch pastor and prominent author, was busy spreading the vaccine gospel everywhere he went in 2021. In January, Jakes sat down with Anthony Fauci and other scientists in a virtual panel discussion to address vaccine hesitancy among Americans in general and communities of color specifically.[4] Nothing gives you credibility like partnering with the biggest liar of the entire Covid-19 narrative: a man who admitted as far back as 2012 that he was involved in gain-of-function research and that it was “worth the risk” of a pandemic. Jakes further bolstered his credibility in late February (2021) with an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal, titled, “Prayer and Science Led Me to the Vaccine.”[5] There, he said the following: “The vaccine has been proven to diminish the chances of people like me getting the virus. To date, the vaccine’s side effects have been minimal or nonexistent.”

He was absolutely right: the vaccine will help to keep you from getting the virus (just ask Max Lucado) and has almost “nonexistent” side effects. That’s why the deaths likely number in the hundreds of thousands in the US alone and “breakthrough cases” pretty much became the norm across the globe by the late summer of 2021.

As the highly esteemed cardiologist and epidemiologist, Dr. Peter McCullough, explained concerning the injections: “It’s going to go down in history as the most dangerous biological, medicinal product rollout in human history.”

Unfortunately, Jakes is but one important part of the greater movement of ministers who set out to “save their communities” by preaching the “vaccine gospel.”[6]

Let’s move on to someone who is even better known around the world: Franklin Graham. Besides being the son of the legendary Christian evangelist, Billy Graham, Franklin is the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and of Samaritan’s Purse. Graham not only supports the vaccines but has plainly said that Jesus would participate in this mass genetic experiment: “I think if there were vaccines available in the time of Christ, Jesus would have made reference to them and used them.”[7] Graham’s statement is akin to suggesting that the Son of God would subject himself to an experimental gene therapy to stay alive. Because, you know, Jesus can die from a virus. Clearly, Graham knows nothing about these so-called “vaccines,” how they differ from genuine vaccines of the past, or how much damage they are inflicting upon the world in myriad ways. Forget the fact that he apparently doesn’t understand that Jesus’s divinity makes such a suggestion absurd.

Elsewhere, he did tone this view down a bit, only saying that Jesus would “advocate” that others be vaccinated: “Based on the parable of the Good Samaritan in the Bible, I would have to say — yes, I think Jesus Christ would advocate for people using vaccines and medicines to treat suffering and save lives.”[8] Clearly, the Great Physician would need his disciples to rely upon modern “science” for their survival. Because, you know, Jesus cannot heal others from a virus.

Besides, who needs the Great Physician when you have the great physician (Fauci).

Then there is Robert Jeffress. Jeffress, who is another extremely prominent evangelical pastor, made many claims about the vaccines throughout 2021. For one, he repeatedly stated that the vaccines are a “gift from God.”[9] That’s odd, because the radical left-wing Governor of New York, Kathy Hochul, also said that the vaccines are “from God to us and we must say, thank you, God.”[10] It sounds like the same mentality is at work in both people, to me. My personal favorite, however, is when Jeffress compared Jesus’ death on the cross to the abortion of children whose fetal cell lines were used in either the research or testing phases of our latest injections (and many others). I’m not kidding. Read his words for yourself:

“If we are talking about something from babies that were already aborted, I would just remind people that the whole Christian message is that Christ—who was innocent—died for us and brought something good out of that unjust death.”[11]

If we already have aborted fetal cells, why not make good use of them? Since Jesus willingly gave his life for the sins of the world, it only follows that those children who were unwillingly murdered should give their lives for the health of the world. In the apostate church, this message makes perfect sense.

It’s also worth noting that Jakes, Graham, Jeffress, and Lucado are collectively worth at least $60 million. Just humble servants of the Lord. I cannot help but ask a rhetorical question: are there any financial incentives involved in preaching the vaccine gospel?

To this point, I have only discussed the response by Protestant leaders. So, what about the Pope? I’m glad I asked.

Perhaps no religious figure has been more on board with the injection campaign than Pope Francis, as he has ferociously pushed the vaccine agenda to all four corners of the earth. He has led like-minded cardinals and archbishops in a resounding call to get vaccinated as an “act of love.”[12] This, of course, means that it’s not about saving yourself  but about saving others. Does that message sound familiar? Pope Francis also said that, “ethically everyone should get the vaccine” and even went to far as to say that those who refused to take vaccines—knowing they are safe and effective—possess a “suicidal denialism.”[13] But what if they aren’t safe and effective? That would be a nonsensical question; of course they are!

Here, we can see Francis echoing the very same talking points that have been handed down to all within the Covid Cult. This mentality—which is evident in all the figures previously discussed—is what spurred those in Brazil to light up the Christ the Redeemer statue with the words “Vaccine Saves” rather than “Jesus Saves.”[14]

I guess a picture really is worth a thousand words.

When you come down to it, that is the message coming from those who have either preached or supported the vaccine gospel. Many professed Christians have replaced the gospel of our Lord with the gospel of the world or, worse yet, have grafted the vaccine gospel into the gospel of Christ.

The message has become that Jesus would have you get injected and that vaccines are our salvation. All who refuse to fall in line with the narrative are hateful, nasty, and murderous, and have pitted themselves against Christ. This reveals a startling reality. As in most other aspects of life, the church has succumbed to corruption and is defecting from the true faith.

The apostate church is here, and it has plenty of blind guides to light its path.

The World Beneath (Part 2)

(To see the truth behind the evil agenda that is now bringing about Satan’s dark system of governance, see my new book, System of the Beast. Also see my extensive video on the subject, System of the Beast: Unveiling the Final World Order. I assure you that they are both eye-opening. )


“A troublemaker and a villain, who goes about with a corrupt mouth, who winks maliciously with his eye, signals with his feet, and motions with his fingers, who plots evil with deceit in his heart—he always stirs up conflict” (Prov. 6:12-14).

Freemasons love their signs and symbols. They love to “wink,” “signal” and “motion.”

While I cannot begin to cover this vast ocean of signs and symbols now—much less the many variations that have come to exist—there are several that should be known. When you understand these, you will literally see them almost everywhere you look. And I do mean everywhere.

Chiefly, it is important to know the following: the hidden hand, the devil’s horns, the all-seeing eye, the vow of silence, and their obsession with the number six.

  • The “hidden hand” is also called the “Master of the Second Veil” in Freemasonry, and it involves placing one’s hand in their coat or jacket to show they are “in the club.”
  • The “all-seeing eye” is the same one I discussed in part one and symbolizes the eye of Satan. This is mimicked by covering (darkening) one eye to emphasize the other.
  • The “vow of silence” displays their loyalty to keeping the oaths they take and their pledge not reveal any information to others. This is shown by covering the mouth with a finger (or similar gesture).
  • Neither the “devil’s horns” nor the number 6 needs any explanation (I should hope).

As you look through these examples, note the obvious connection that exists between the Satanic symbols and the Masonic signs that often accompany them.

Don Cheadle puts his signs together rather uniquely in these pictures. Can we be sure that the vow of silence (pictured right)—which is unquestionably a Masonic symbol describing the oaths they take—is somehow connected to Satanism? He answers that for us in the first two images:

666 hand sign, darkening the eye with the 6 die, and vow of silence.

Fellow Freemason, Drake, also shows his support for Cheadle’s master.

The “eye” tattoo and 6’s galore

The eye inside the six on Drake’s album cover is the same one modelled below by Madonna.

Notice that Madonna’s pyramid is the exact one we see on the U.S. dollar bill. On the right, she teaches her poor children to follow in her footsteps.

Let’s look at some other musicians. Having decided that his own musical abilities could not elevate him into stardom (no surprise here, have you listened to him?) Bob Dylan decided to call upon a little supernatural help. He admitted here to “making a bargain with the Chief Commander” of “this earth and the one we can’t see.” Let’s put this another way: Dylan sold his soul to the devil.

How about another man of very limited musical ability that became massively successful via a similar deal? Observe Mr. Neil Young.

Obvious one-eye symbolism

I agree with Lynyrd Skynyrd: “A southern man don’t need him around anyhow.”

The legendary “Christian” artist, Katie Perry, didn’t just “kiss a girl and like it” but went a bit further into depravity. Well, maybe a lot further.

She’s not emphasizing the “eye” or anything . . .

Still think there’s nothing wrong with Perry? Take a peek at the morbid world that her poor child will grow up in. This video is truly frightening.

Fellow Mason, Pink, has no problem revealing her ties to Freemasonry publicly at her concerts.

Note the all-seeing eye, her replaying her initiation (w/checkered pant leg), and the vow of silence.

Kesha also has no problem showing us her allegiance to Freemasonry, while at the same time proving its link to Satanism. See her adorably boasting the one-eye symbolism and modeling her hatred for Jesus with an upside-down cross?

Elon Musk’s girlfriend, Grimes, not so covertly reveals the “god” that both she and Elon revere through their involvement in Freemasonry.

“Grimes”. . . appropriate name, know?

All-time famous actor, Brad Pitt, can also clearly show you the connection between Freemasonry and Satanism.

Likewise, Daniel Craig pulls no punches in telling you that he is both a Mason and a Satanist. First, he perfectly displays a key sign in Freemasonry: the “hidden hand” or the “Master of the Second Veil.”

Now, Craig shows us what else he is involved in. It doesn’t get more obvious than this.

All-seeing eye and self-explanatory message on shirt.

Aussie actor, Chris Hemsworth, shares Craig’s affinity for Freemasonry and Satanism.

One-eye symbolism (left) and vow of silence (right), complete with triple 6 shirt (middle)

Now, we really take it up a notch. Enter one Marilyn Manson. No explanation needed here, but the simple fact that he is a Freemason speaks volumes.

Masonic ring and a whole lot of darkness.

But can we be sure that Manson is indeed a Freemason, as well as a renowned Satanist? In addition to his Masonic ring, he illustrates the hidden hand for us below (while doing his best Nick Cage impression, I might add)

Do you wonder if most of these Freemasons hate Christianity? Manson—while showing the one-eye symbolism—removes all doubt.

(As an aside, I am completely certain that the “man” is not human.)

Amazingly, Manson has some very stiff competition these days for the contest of who can be the most demonic. Who’d have thought that to be possible years ago? Jefree Star is one of the many demoniacs who is giving Manson a run for his money.

So is Billie Eilish . . .

Freemason, Billie Eilish, sporting the triple 6 and dressed as a fallen angel in her music video, “All Good Girls Go to Hell.”

For good measure, let’s really show the Masonic-Satanic connection once more. The Order of the Eastern Star (OES) is the female branch of Freemasonry. Notice any similarity between the Baphomet and the OES emblem?  

Pentagrams all around.

Pretty clear, right?

Freemason, Asia Argento—former girlfriend of Freemason, Anthony Bourdain—imitates this same ghastly figure for us, once more proving the link between Freemasonry and Satanism.

Apart from its pervasiveness in our macabre and deeply disturbed culture, Freemasonry was critical in the very inception of the United States. In part one, I discussed the dollar bill. Of course, many presidents throughout history have been more than happy to announce their part in Freemasonry. Some even view it as a greater honor than being president. Take Harry S. Truman, for example.

The Harry S. Truman Library reveals an impressive list of other presidents who were Freemasons. These include names like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and many others.

This is simply a relic of the past though, right? There’s no way that more contemporary presidents are Freemasons . . .

Nah, no way at all.

Gaze upon little Georgie W, complete with “the cat that ate the canary” grin.

As Whistler remarked on the movie Blade, “You have to understand, they’re everywhere.” I am not referring to vampires here, as he was. But I am talking about something in that vein: Freemasons.

If you have read this article (and hopefully part one, too) then you may be wondering if everyone who is involved in Freemasonry worships Satan.

It was recently revealed to me (by a very reliable source) that even the 33rd Degree Masons are not all knowingly Satanists. There are two “streams” that exist at the 33rd Degree: “active” and “honorary.” It is only the “active” members in this category that descend into the religion of Luciferianism. This break exists to further conceal what Freemasonry really is: Satanism in disguise. This source clarified the purpose of the two “streams” for me: “In this way, even a portion of 33rd’s do not know the actual reality that lives at the very core of their beloved Fraternity.”

The “active” 33rd Degree Mason joins an elite club for those who are willing to forsake everything to gain success and power. They’ll even joyfully hand over their souls for it.

With that said, many of our most esteemed musicians, actors, politicians, and other people of great influence are either “active” 33rd Degree Masons or are involved enough to utilize the same demonic signs and symbols. As Altiyan often notes, they wouldn’t be in these positions if they weren’t Freemasons.

Yes, this means that most of our world leaders and celebrities belong to this secret fraternity and probably came to possess their high ranks in society because of it.

Further, I described in part one that even the very initiation process into the “club” requires sick and morbid acts of obedience. Some may not be actively worshipping Satan, but they are indirectly involved in fueling an order that promotes the practice throughout the world. The vast majority are lower ranking “foot soldiers” for the society who have no real idea what it is concealing (or what they are supporting). But again, they should.

If you ask me, there is no excuse for a Mason—of any rank—to not see at least some parts of this.

As I said in the beginning, the world is not what you think it is. It is not run by who you think runs it, either. There is a world beneath the one that most of us see as “reality.” Since there seems to be a theme here, I will again quote the movie Blade: “The world you live in is just a sugar-coated topping. There is another world, beneath it.”

I would argue that organized Satanism (i.e. Freemasonry) is exploding before our eyes, like a swarm of cockroaches crawling out from the dark recesses of the earth.

Now that you know their signs and symbols, you might start to see them all over the place. You may see them in commercials, in department store pictures and clothing, in your favorite artists’ music videos and album covers, and even in the books and movies your children enjoy. You may literally see the entire world differently.

I certainly do.

The World Beneath (Part 1)

~ What follows is part one of a two-part discussion about a critical issue. My hope here is merely to introduce readers to this matter, and then point them forward to Altiyan Childs’ amazing video and other resources that will fill out the broader picture ~

From January 2020 to the present day, events have transpired that have awakened many to the reality that our world may not be what they thought it was. From a spiritual perspective, we are living in an enemy kingdom. Though many remain either asleep or in complete denial of the agenda playing out in front of us, those with eyes and ears are seeing and hearing more effectively than ever. As I have personally traveled further and further down the “rabbit hole,” so to speak, the sheer volume of wickedness at work in our society has left me completely stunned.

I believe that virtually all people of faith have failed to grasp the true condition of our world, as well as who runs it. However, it may well be that we couldn’t fully understand until now. Much was hidden under the surface that is now coming to light. In a very real sense, there is a world beneath the one that most people recognize.

There is so much darkness around us: so many plots and schemes. The most shocking thing of all is how obvious this has become. Those perpetrating the nefarious activity make almost no effort to conceal what they are doing anymore. It’s evident in commercials, in elections, on billboards and store posters, in everything that Hollywood touches, and even in Disney movies and children’s books. Once you see it, you can hardly avoid seeing it . . . in everything.

Remember these pyramids and “eyes” as you read.

To me, this poses a sincere and critical question: what binds it all together?

When you peel back the many extravagant and artfully hidden layers of corruption, what is that evil “thing” behind it all? What is the foundation that supports the pillars, the quilt that contains the patches, and the driving force of the entire enterprise? When you trace the evil back to its origin, who (or what) do we find operating the controls?

The simplest and most succinct answer to this question is Satan. Satan is the “god of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4) and the “prince of the power of the air” (Eph. 2:2). He is the dragon that gives power to the two beasts of Revelation and all the wicked people of the earth.

But Satan is not a mortal being. He is, as Bob Dylan declared, the “Chief Commander.” Satan is the ruler of “this earth and the one we can’t see.” I will discuss that interesting statement more in part two. The fallen angels (demons) are not mortal, either. Still, they (and Satan) are our true adversaries. Paul told us about this two thousand years ago: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Eph. 6:12).

Though the evil forces of the spirit realm are the architects behind the madness, earthly emissaries are necessary to construct the dark monuments; there are human forces that fulfil this mission. The devil and his angels work through the people of this world to bring about chaos and condemnation, just as God works in His people to bring about order and redemption.

Odds are, you are probably on board with what I am saying to this point. But what if I told you that there is a “synagogue of Satan” in our midst today?

What if I said that there is an institution that was founded as a satanic “church” and that it is—as Altiyan Childs repeated in his mind-blowing video—“hidden in plain sight?” Would it surprise you to know that there is one of these assemblies near you, and that they exist all over the globe?

Whether you would accept it or not, there is a church driven by the “spirit of antichrist” just down the road from almost all of us. Unlike the apostate church that has so powerfully emerged today—and, in some respects, overlaps with the one I am now speaking of—you certainly won’t find a cross on these “churches.” You won’t see a cute little sign out in front saying something like, “God accepts knee-mail.”

Instead, you will see a symbol like this:

You see, I had long suspected that Freemasonry was concealing something evil. But I knew very little about the organization. Truth be told, I was approached by a gentleman (whom I knew) in the summer of 2020 who asked me about joining my local lodge. My small town does have a local lodge (just about every city or town does). In retrospect, I now realize that the timing was not coincidental.

This man was willing to give me the necessary recommendation for entering the lodge; he could “get me in the club.” All initiates need a sponsor, after all.

I don’t believe the man who was trying to recruit me is a monster or a devil worshiper. At least, not knowingly. In fact, I don’t think he has any real idea what his precious lodge is concealing within its many signs and symbols. The overwhelming majority of people who belong to this secret society don’t really know what they’re involved in, as very few ever achieve its highest “honor” (the Honorary 33rd degree). I would argue, however, that these individuals should know what its about from the very beginning.

Remove your wedding ring. Take off your crucifix. Strip down, initiate! Blindly bow before your “Most Worshipful Master”!

Even during the initiation process (the “entrance” into Freemasonry), the candidate must vow never to reveal anything about the secret arts they would become privy to. Doing so renders one “void of all moral worth.” And so, they agree under the penalty of “having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by the root and buried in the sand of the sea at low water mark . . .”

“So help me God,” of course. Hmm . . . God?

Needless to say, I rejected the man’s offer and did not become a Mason (not that all this was revealed to me). Now, the prospect is utterly unthinkable.

Yes, I had a vague idea that something was off with Freemasonry. But never, never, did I know how nefarious this organization really is. As I mentioned at the onset, others awakened me to this reality quite recently. Sure, Freemasons serve pancake breakfasts and sponsor all manner of awards. They run major charities like the Shriner’s Hospitals for Kids, and who can refuse an adorable child offering you a “love to the rescue” blanket for your donation?

On the surface, there doesn’t appear to be many negatives about this secret fraternity. As someone recently wrote to me—having watched Altiyan’s video“Freemasonry is just an old fear of the Catholic Church.”

Nothing to see here; move it along.

I understand the sentiment, as the group is far from new and some throughout history have warned about it. But I am afraid Freemasonry is rather more than that: a lot more than that. As I said, it is the pillar holding the building up; the foundation of the entire evil enterprise.

But recall the charities and sponsorships. Think about the gentle Shriners tooling around in their little cars at your local parade. In order to be a Shriner, of course, one must first be a highly successful Mason. As Shriner’s International puts it: “All Shriners are Masons, but not all Masons are Shriners.”

The Few. The Proud. The Shriners . . .

But understand this: “God” is at the center of everything they do. A Freemason absolutely must believe in “God,” in order to be accepted into the society. As an indication of how pervasive the group is, allow 33rd degree Freemason, Danny Thomas, to tell you about God’s place in their royal art:

“Our Order teaches . . . ‘the brotherhood of man under the Fatherhood of God’ and this is great!”

You may be wondering, who is Danny Thomas? It might surprise you to know that he is the founder of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Shriners and St. Jude: make that two for two. Surely, he’s just another God-fearing Mason though. He did start a charitable organization for kids, right?

The organization bows to the “Almighty Father and Supreme Governor of the Universe,” often making special divine requests for their initiates:

“Endue him with a competency of Thy divine wisdom, that, assisted by the secrets of our Masonic art, he may the better be enabled to unfold the beauties of true godliness, to the honour and glory of Thy Holy Name” (my emphasis).

Freemasons possess such reverence for “God” that they deem the atheist to be an unparalleled fool. The Encyclopedia of Freemasonry is clear about this. It describes the atheist as: “One who does not believe in the existence of God. Such a state of mind can only arise from the ignorance of stupidity or a corruption of principle, since the whole universe is filled with the moral and physical proofs of a Creator.”

Further, the Mason is charged that “he will never be a stupid Atheist.”

Make no mistake about it, Freemasonry does not hold atheism in high esteem. They may be instrumental in peddling atheism to the dumb and ignorant masses—that is, you and me—but they understand that the outright rejection of “God” is the height of lunacy. Even Charles Darwin—the man that Richard Dawkins declared “made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist”—believed in this “deity.”

He had to; like his grandfather, Erasmus Darwin, Charles was a Freemason. (Not that he was willing to reveal anything about it)

But “Darwin’s God”—as charlatan, Kenneth Miller wrote—is the very issue at hand. Who is this “God” that the Freemasons shower with praise and adoration? Is it Allah? Is it Vishnu, Zeus, Artemis, Hades, or the like? Is it Jesus Christ or God the Father?

Not hardly.

The “God” of the Freemasons reveals himself in obvious ways that somehow evade our attention. You know, in things that are “hidden in plain sight,” like the pyramid on the U.S. dollar bill. This one:

And what do the words Novus Ordo Seclorum mean? They translate to “A New Order of the Ages.” A New World Order . . .

The same “eye” can be seen in Masonic Lodges around the world, and even on the sacred objects they adorn themselves with.

Call it the eye of Horus, the “all-seeing eye,” or whatever you’d like. As Tolkien so cleverly revealed in the Lord of the Rings series, the “eye of Sauron” is the eye of evil. More accurately, it is the eye of the evil one. Brilliant as he was, Tolkien did not dream up this imagery. He did, however, accurately utilize it.

Millions around the world pay homage to this one-eyed god. Now more than ever, they do it openly. Some cover their eye with their hand or an object, and some simply wink. It’s all the same.

Wait a minute; the deity in Freemasonry can’t really be, “you know who” . . . can it?

Well, look again.

Are those . . . horns, Jen? I don’t know, maybe Anton LaVey—Freemason and founder of the Church of Satan—can tell us.

They’re horns alright; devil horns.

Yes, “you know who” is the “god” of Freemasonry: Satan. Freemasonry is Luciferianism wrapped in a candy-coated shell. Enter now “From darkness to Light.” As their own “scriptures” reveal, that “light” is darkness absolute. Lucifer is the light that illuminates the Freemason’s world. Darkness is light, wrong is right, and evil is good. The signature black and white, checkered floor of their lodges symbolizes this very thing. Good and evil are blurred concepts in Freemasonry.

If you doubt what I am saying, please allow one of the most respected and acclaimed Freemasons in history to plainly affirm this. Albert Pike gave an address in 1889 in France to the highest levels of Freemasonry. This was later reprinted on January 19, 1935, by the English journal The Freemason. In this address, Pike declared:

That which we must say to the crowd is, we worship a god, but it is the god one adores without superstition […]. The Masonic religion ought to be maintained in the purity of Luciferian doctrine by all of us who are initiates of the highest degrees. If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay [sic] [the God of the Christians] whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion of science, would Adonay and his priest calumniate him? 

“Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two gods: darkness being necessary to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive… the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophical religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil.

Do you see now? Can there be any doubt?

Altiyan described it best: “Freemasonry is Satanism in disguise.” It is Satanism’s “magic cloak.” And it really is.

Yet, somehow, it’s even worse than that. As he said elsewhere: “What do you get when you cloak Satanism with Christianity? You get Freemasonry.” That’s right: Freemasonry masquerades as Christianity, just as Satan “masquerades as an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14).

So, when you see your favorite celebrities or musicians sporting a jacket with the all-seeing eye or sitting upon checkered flooring, you can be sure what you are seeing. Don’t doubt your eyes; the colors are used deliberately, and they’re Masonic. As such, they are also Satanic.

As I said in the beginning, this is only the tip of the iceberg. The flooring is appropriately just the foundation that all the other signs and symbols rest upon. The world beneath is a vast labyrinth of underground passages, each branching off into an almost infinite number of rooms and tombs. As a friend recently told me: who can fathom the depths of Satan?

In my next article, I will show some of the literally innumerable examples that exist, proving that Freemasonry (Satanism’s “magic cloak”) is everywhere you look. Everywhere.

If you want to get a glimpse at how far this goes, proceed now to part 2.

A Tale of Two Churches

Hell in the Bible

In a time when the apostate church is in full swing, it is now more pressing than ever to defend obvious biblical teachings. At least, what ought to be obvious. You know, the sorts of things that even those with a basic commitment to Scripture should accept. However, the unbelief that now characterizes many churchgoers and “Christian” leaders is utterly astonishing. While paying homage to the Bible, they fiercely reject much of what it has to say.

Anyone familiar with my writings knows that I have a massive axe to grind with those who directly dismiss clear biblical teachings, choosing instead to fill their “itching ears” with the doctrines of men.

The topic at hand is definitively one of those instances.

With that said, let me cut to the chase and state that hell is real. It’s vividly described in the Bible, and not simply as a metaphor or a cute teaching tale. Furthermore, it’s certainly not something that “we create here on earth,” nor is it some kind of synonym for “evil” or “sin,” as scholar Tim Mackie—with the Bible Project—has recently (and heretically) taught.

I repeat: hell is a real existence. Or, I should say, it will be a real existence. But I’ll get to that.

The doctrine of hell is without question one that is founded upon the words of Jesus. Biblically speaking, Jesus introduced the full-blown view that the wicked and unrepentant will suffer in the afterlife. Certainly, the OT contains some references to this reality (like Dan 12:2) but they are scarce; God simply had not revealed much about the issue to that point. The same could be said about demonic activity, the nature of the resurrection, many of the end time events, and others.

It was Jesus’ entrance into the world that really shed light on what hell is and what it’s going to be about. The unavoidable truth is that Jesus spoke about hell far more often than most biblical “authorities” of the 21st century would ever care to admit.

When he discussed hell, Jesus’ term of choice was “Gehenna.” This term comes from the Hebrew Ge Hinnom, meaning “valley of Hinnom.” It was originally located southwest of Jerusalem, and was utilized by the Ammonites as a place to sacrifice their own children to the god Moloch. It is likely that even the Israelites participated in this heinous practice over the centuries! It later became a garbage heap where refuse was seemingly always burning. Jesus referenced this location as an indicator of the kind of place that will await the ungodly after judgment. It is a place of evil, terror, suffering and fiery destruction.

In all, Gehenna (geenna) appears twelve times in the NT and Jesus is responsible for eleven of them (James 3:6 is the other). While many translations and believers of our time tend to equate Hades with hell, it is not accurate to do so. (I speak about Hades in this blog, when dealing with the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.) Theologian Robert P. Lightner correctly points this out for us, saying: “Whereas Hades is the intermediate state, Gehenna is eternal hell. Wherever it is used in the NT, it always means the place of eternal damnation.”[1] Hades is the realm of the dead, and Gehenna is hell.

Of course, I disagree that there is any such thing as an “intermediate state,” where deceased people roam as disembodied spirits before the return of Christ. That belief forms the basis of The Death Myth.

But let’s press on . . .

For easy reference, this link will show you all the places where Jesus used the term Gehenna and how he did so.

Jesus—and other biblical characters—spoke about Gehenna in other ways as well. Gehenna is the “lake of fire,” the place of ultimate destruction, or the place where there will be “weeping and gnashing of teeth.” The Book of Revelation calls a sentence to Gehenna the “second death.” It’s the only avoidable type of death, and we should do so at all costs:

“But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death” (21:8)

Jesus spoke about the same reality in Matthew 10:28: “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” Yes, “hell” here is—you guessed it—Gehenna (not Hades).

What is hell like?

As I already touched upon, the Bible describes hell as a place of fiery torment. It is seen as a “lake of fire and brimstone”:

“And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever” (Rev. 20:10).

Jesus adds in Mark 9:47-48 that the fires of hell are never “quenched” or “extinguished” (sbennumi). Regardless of what happens to each individual, hell will stay lit endlessly. If nothing else, for Satan and his minions. (I discuss more about the duration of hell later on.)

On top of involving fiery destruction, the Bible also reveals that hell is a place of absolute darkness, where one remains permanently estranged from God.

Jude 1:13 and 2 Peter 2:1 describe this aspect of damnation by adding a different wrinkle to the concept. Take the Jude passage, which discusses the fate of the ungodly (some of whom were masquerading as believers):

“They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever.”

Notice also that the “blackest darkness” is said to have been reserved for the wicked. The term for “reserve” is téreó, and it suggests that this darkness is being “guarded” or preserved for a later time. Sounds like when Jesus said “the place prepared” for Satan and the demons, right?

When discussing the issue of believers who continue in sin, the author of Hebrews makes a powerful contribution to this discussion:

“If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know him who said, ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ and again, ‘The Lord will judge his people.’ It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (10:26-31, my emphasis).

This illustrates that some who claim to follow God, only in word but not in deed, will experience the same punishment as the unrepentant. In fact, perhaps a worse punishment (2 Pet. 2:20)! This of course means that nonbelievers will also be condemned.

In 2 Thessalonians, Paul echoed the teachings of Hebrews and adds an interesting detail about the nature of hell:

“He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might” (1:8-9).

Besides affirming that the unrepentant will be punished and “shut out from the presence of the Lord,” Paul specifically notes the duration of this existence: it is “everlasting.” Some translations render this term as “eternal” instead, being that the Greek word used here (aiónios) can be viewed that way, too.

This leads naturally to the question, how long does hell last? In all honesty, this opens up into a rather large and intricate discussion; one that I cannot cover in full detail here.

What I can say is that, in general, the term carries with it the idea of something happening in an “age-long” way. That is, a perpetual occurrence that may never cease OR will only cease when it has accomplished its task. “Everlasting” anything is largely a contextual idea. In the case of the many places where Scripture talks about inheriting eternal life or salvation (like Mk. 10:30 and Jn. 3:16), the context suggests a never-ending duration. We are saved for all time.

Likewise, the addition of the phrase day and night “forever and ever”—literally, “to the ages of the ages”—in Revelation 20:10 certainly suggests that hell will never cease to burn for the unholy trinity of Revelation. That is, for the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet.

Personally, my view is that the “everlasting” nature of hell involves a punishment that 1) Always fits the crime/s (and so varies from being to being) and 2) Lasts as long as necessary (to complete its course). This view eliminates the possibility of strict annihilationism, whereby “hell” is reduced to the person simply ceasing to exist or being “burned up in a flash.” At the same time, it allows for a more moderate form of annihilationism, which would be the idea that punishment varies between entities and that it may not always last—as salvation does—“forever and ever” or endlessly.

Both the duration and the severity of the punishment each (unsaved) person will endure in hell is dependent upon their individual deeds and rebelliousness.

I think this is also consistent with the clear biblical teaching that all human beings will be judged according to their deeds (Rom. 2:6, Mt. 16:27, Rev. 22:12). We can be sure of this much: At the Day of Judgment, God will render to all people a totally just verdict of either punishment or reward.

When will hell be experienced?

The Bible unequivocally describes hell as a future existence. That’s right: no one—not Hitler, Pol Pot, Jeffrey Epstein (if he’s dead?), or any demon—is currently living in hell. Here are a few reasons why we can be sure of that.

First, Jesus encountered demons who flatly confessed that their destruction lay ahead of them, at an “appointed time” in the future: “What do you want with us, Son of God?” they shouted. ‘Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?” (Mt. 8:28).

Second, Jesus specifically told us that hell is a place “prepared”—that is, not currently in use—for Satan and the demons: “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (Mt. 25:41). Earlier in the passage, Jesus makes it clear when this will occur: “When the Son of Man comes in his glory” (Mt. 25:31a).

Unless the “secret Rapture” already occurred and took far fewer people than its advocates advertise (note the sarcasm), Jesus has not returned. Hence, Satan and the demons are not presently living in hell.

Third, Jesus’ Parable of the Weeds (or Tares) explicitly tells us that no one is going to be sentenced to hell (or anywhere) prior to the Great Judgment:

“Just as the weeds are collected and burned up with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and they will throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Mt. 13:40-42).

This is also explained in Revelation 20, where the unrepentant are thrown into the “lake of fire” after  Satan, the beast, and the false prophet are sent there. (For more on the beasts of Revelation 13, see this blog.)

Other examples could even be examined, like the aforementioned Jude 1:13 and 2 Peter 2:17. Again, the “blackest darkness” is reserved for the ungodly.

What do we need to know about hell?

As I have mentioned several times already, one thing we need to know about hell is that it’s going to be a real location for the wicked and unrepentant. Hell is not a metaphor, a symbol, or a parallel expression for some other term (like evil or sin). It’s also not simply mortal death. Rather, it is the inexpressible fate of the evil spiritual forces and the ungodly people who followed them in life.

With this said, it is also important to note that neither Jesus nor the biblical authors were “hell obsessed,” or anything of the sort. They took absolutely no pleasure in talking about the issue, because Jesus came—at least in part—to ensure that hell does not need to be our end.  

That leads to the second critical thing to know: hell is completely avoidable.

Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross enabled those who believe to be pardoned and spared—yes, I said spared—of the wrath that would otherwise be set upon us. Romans 3:25 reveals that Jesus was “displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith” (NASB). By “propitiation,” it means “a sin offering, by which the wrath of the deity shall be appeased.” Jesus’ atonement enables the faithful to avoid the wrath that is coming upon the rest of the world. This is not about escaping the world before the great Day of Tribulation, as “secret Rapture” proponents assert. Instead, it is about ensuring that we do not “perish” through the “second death.” That is the end-result of rejecting Christ.

Natural death must come to all who die before Christ’s return, but spiritual death will come only to those who reject God and refuse to follow Him.

Unfortunately, the plain truth is that many people have, are, and will always choose not to follow Jesus. In doing so, they will be unable to avoid this most grievous penalty for their sins.

In closing, there is another point I would like to note, and it’s something I fear a lot of people have almost no grasp of. Because of that, they do not understand why the Bible speaks about hell or why it will be necessary. There are evil people in this world, and some almost incomprehensively so. Our world is filled with pedophiles, murderers, rapists, sex traffickers, those who sacrifice children (yes, do some digging and you’ll see), and every other vile thing imaginable (and unimaginable).

Many are unable to see the horrific nature of such things because they are not directly affected by them.

But I ask you: should there be no recourse for these heinous acts? Does mortal death sufficiently account for the “repayment” that God has promised for those who have killed and persecuted His people? I have heard many say that they “can’t believe in a God who would send someone to hell.” My reply is always the same: I can’t believe in a God who wouldn’t.

Hell is a biblical certainty that, while terribly unfortunate, is utterly necessary. To believe otherwise is to reject what is abundantly clear in Scripture.
