In the 24th chapter of Matthew, the disciples of JESUS asked HIM when will the end of the world come and what will be the sign of HIS coming back to earth (Matthew 24:3). The most important command and sign of HIS coming back to earth is to watch out for false prophets, to be cautious of liars. This sign is so important that JESUS mentioned it first of all the signs (Matthew 24:4). HE said, “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in MY name, saying, I am CHRIST; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5).
The Antichrist shall say he is CHRIST, and shall deceive many.1 JESUS warns of this five times alone in Matthew chapter 24, because Satan is such a deceiver that he deceives the whole world.2 Then JESUS told of wars and rumors of wars, of nations rising against nation and kingdom against kingdom, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes everywhere (Matthew 24:6-8).
“Then shall they [the fourth and last evil world power3] deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you [saying they are doing GOD service for murdering born-again Christians4]: and you shall be hated of all nations for MY name’s sake. [The name of JESUS is the WORD of GOD5—and you will be hated for preaching HIS WORD.] And then [because of the fierce persecution] shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another” (Matthew 24:9-10).
“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:11). JESUS, for the second time, warns of false prophets. Verse 12 states that there will be so much sin in the whole world that “the love of many shall wax cold.” In verse 13, JESUS promises those of us that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved. But many that are saved will not endure, so they will not be saved.6 They will fall away. “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place [which means stay in the SPIRIT keeping the LORD’s commandments7]” (Matthew 24:14-15).
“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is CHRIST, or there; believe it not” (Matthew 24:21-23).
Again, JESUS tells of false Christs and false prophets. This is because if you believe them, you will spend eternity in Hell in the Lake of Fire.8 This satanic false government’s secular prophets will tell you that if you take the mark of the beast, they will set you free from prison, even if you have long prison sentences. They will give you government jobs, which relieve you of many taxes. You will have no problem getting food or paying any bills—just bow to the Beast (the world government rules). Take his mark, and you will be spared. You will be able to buy and sell; but remember, if you take the mark, you will have blasphemed the HOLY SPIRIT, and there is never forgiveness for this horrible sin.9
“Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, HE is in the desert; go not forth: behold, HE is in the secret chambers; believe it not” (Matthew 24:26). Here again JESUS warns us all regarding false prophets. Because of man-made miracles, they shall deceive the very elect.10 JESUS tells us how we will know when it is really HIM: “For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the SON of man be” (Matthew 24:27). “For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together. [An eagle is a scavenger, like a vulture. Whenever a church is destroyed by propaganda, Satan will be there. Satan does it, and the people of the church believe it.]
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then [not before, but then—immediately AFTER the tribulation] shall appear the sign of the SON of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the SON of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And HE shall send HIS angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together HIS elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” (Matthew 24:28-31).
Now the LORD told Satan and us as well that man does not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of GOD (Matthew 4:4). Therefore, we are not supposed to allow the prophecies of the great tribulation in Matthew chapter 24, Daniel chapter 7, and the book of Revelation to frighten us into the arms of Satan, but we are to live by every WORD of GOD, such as Psalm 37: “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and HE shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in HIM; and HE shall bring it to pass. And HE shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for HIM: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
“For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The LORD shall laugh at him: for HE seeth that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation. Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
“A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous. The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth. For such as be blessed of HIM shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of HIM shall be cut off.
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in HIS way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with HIS hand. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore. For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not HIS saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. The law of his GOD is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
“Wait on the LORD, and keep HIS way, and HE shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off. But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: HE is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: HE shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in HIM” (Psalm 37).
The bottom line of knowing “the depths of Satan, as they speak” is the beast (the world government) and the mark of the beast (Revelation 2:24). Anyone who sins willfully cannot enter Heaven.11 Anyone taking the mark of the beast for any reason cannot enter Heaven (Revelation 14:9-11). Read and study the WORD of GOD.12 The whole duty of man is to “Fear GOD, and keep HIS commandments” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
Accept the LORD JESUS CHRIST by saying this prayer, and thou shalt be saved (Acts 16:31):
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
