THE WORLD IS TO BE JUDGED

By S.R. Shearer

"He cometh [this Judge] who flies on the wings of the wind with fire in His eyes and darkness under His feet, whose pavilion round about Him is dark waters and thick clouds (Psalm 18:8-12), for He cometh to judge the earth: He shall judge the world with [pure] righteousness, and the people with [absolute] truth." (Psalm 96:13)


The word, "Judgment," conjures up fantasies of old, bent, black robed figures glowering down with solemn, pitiless faces from lofty heights; cavernous halls with high ceilings and polished marble floors; echoing footsteps and hushed whisperings. It is a word around which swirls vague feelings of sorrow and distress, dread and foreboding, alarm and fright. And always, there is about the word a gloomy and oppressive pallor; a dull, aching sense of impending doom.

The Scriptures anticipate a day of coming judgment - one that will make men's hearts stop beating in fear and their blood run cold with terror. The Bible refers to it over 150 times in both the Old and New Testaments. In the Old Testament, the Psalmist writes:

"... for He cometh [this Judge, who flies on the wings of the wind with fire in His eyes and darkness under His feet; whose pavilion round about Him is dark waters and thick clouds (Psalm 18:8-12)], for He cometh to judge the earth: He shall judge the world with [pure] righteousness, and the people with [absolute] truth." (Psalm 96:13)

 And in the New Testament, Paul exclaims:

"... He hath appointed a day in which He will judge the world..." (Acts 17:31).

Doomsday

In the vernacular, or common language of the people, this day of horror has been referred to as Judgment Day - and perhaps even more to the point, as Doomsday. Its anticipation has always struck fear in the hearts of men and women. Indeed, so great has been man's dread of Judgment Day that in the year 999 a paralyzing terror gripped all of Europe in anticipation of the turn of the Millennium. It was commonly believed by prince and peasant alike that Judgment Day was New Years Day, 1000 A.D. The ordinary cares of life were given up. The land was left untilled. Houses and buildings of every type were allowed to fall into disrepair. Throngs of common people slept in the porches and in the shadows of holy buildings and churches. Kings and emperors begged to be admitted to monasteries. A wild and uncontrollable dread and sense of foreboding seized the entire continent.

And make no mistakes about it, that same terror is still alive - lurking just beneath our Twenty-First Century veneer of sophistication and science. It comes to us when we are alone - at night; it's in our music, our movies, our art. It is a phantom that defies the scientist's efforts to dislodge it, and the psychologist's attempts to explain it away. [Please see our article, "Witchcraft and the Paranormal."] [PRESS HERE]

THE TRIBULATION: A TIME OF TESTING

THE WORLD SYSTEM OF MANKIND PUT ON TRIAL BEFORE THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE

But beyond our fears, beyond our foreboding, what does the word "judgment" really mean? Judgment is the act of DECLARING the worth of something, of ANNOUNCING its value. We do it every day, in countless ways. When we shop, we make judgments as to which foods are best for us, which coats are warmer for the winter, what car is best suited for our needs, where we should live, the house we should live in - all these decisions are or will be products of a judgment we have made or will make. And all these judgments (which have been manifested or DECLARED in our purchases) were preceded by some form or process of TESTING.

True, the testing may have only occurred in our minds at a very rudimentary level, but it occurred nonetheless. The judgments or decisions (which is another word for judgment) that were made as to which products to purchase were the results of that testing. A JUDGMENT IS ALWAYS PRECEDED BY SOME FORM OF TESTING.

This brings us to the matter of the Tribulation. The word, "Tribulation," means test. It is derived from the Latin word, Tribulum, which means to press and subject to stress as in a test. But the word means more - it means to SEVERELY test, to press to the point of ANGUISH - much as a test pilot tests an experimental plane and presses it to its very limits of toleration.

A ROMAN TRIBUNE OR JUDGE

The Roman word, Tribune, is also derived from the Latin word Tribulum. A Tribune in ancient Rome was a magistrate or judge appointed to hear civil and criminal proceedings.

It is the word from which our modern English word, "Tribunal," is derived - which means a seat of judgment. In all these instances, the word Tribulum (from which, once again, the English word "Tribulation" is derived) had a legal sense attached to it. It meant - in the sense that is appropriate here - pressure and stress applied to an object in order to test it.

This is the exact sense that the translators of the King James version of the Bible were trying to convey when they translated the Greek word, Thlipsis, as Tribulation in Revelation 7:14. As with the Latin word, Tribulum, the Greek word, Thlipsis, means pressure and stress applied to an object for the purpose of testing.

It is this sense, then, of the word, "Tribulation," which the translators of the King James version of the Bible wished to convey to the readers - A TIME OF TESTING!! This is substantiated by Revelation 3:10 when Jesus referred to the Tribulation as "the hour of testing."


THE NECESSITY OF TWO WITNESSES

The Bible says –

  • "A single witness shall not rise up against a man on account of any inquiry or any sin which he has committed; on the evidence of two ... witnesses a matter shall be confirmed." (Deut. 19:15)
  • "On the evidence of two witnesses ... he who is to die shall be put to death; he shall not be put to death on the evidence of one witness." (Deut. 17:6)
  • "... no person shall be put to death on the testimony of one witness." ((Numbers 35:30) 

Throughout the Scriptures and permeating all of God's dealing with man, God has adhered to an iron-clad principle that He himself laid down, THAT NO MATTER BEFORE THE LAW SHALL BE ESTABLISHED WITHOUT THE TESTIMONY OF TWO WITNESSES.

This principle is central to all of God's dealings with man: there were two tables of testimony (the Law) in the Ark of the Covenant; two cherubim that covered the Ark; two witnesses were necessary for a fair trial; the disciples were named in pairs and sent out two-by two – not that they might keep each other company (as some naively suppose), but that the testimony of the one could be substantiated by the testimony of the other according to the Law.

AND FINALLY, TWO WITNESSES SHALL TESTIFY DURING THE TRIBULATION. IT IS FOR THIS PRECISE REASON THAT IT IS SO NECESSARY FOR SATAN TO "KILL-OFF" AT LEAST ONE OF GOD'S TWO WITNESSES: EITHER ISRAEL OR THE CHURCH.

THE SEMBLANCE BETWEEN REV. 11 AND DANIEL 12

We have discussed on the pages of this web-site over and over again the relevance that Revelation 11 has vis-a-vis the TWO WITNESSES; that plus the attempt by Satan to prevent these Two Witnesses from giving testimony. [Please see Chapter VIII of the New Antipas Papers, "TRIBULATION AND JUDGMENT."] [PRESS HERE]

However, this is not the only time the Scriptures discuss this matter; some 600 years prior to the passage on the "Two Witnesses" given in the New Testament (Rev. 11), a second less known prophecy concerning these two enigmatic figures was given in the Old Testament: specifically, Daniel 12:6-10. The similarity between these two passages of Scripture is truly remarkable.


Then I, Daniel, looked and saw TWO MEN on each bank of the river. And one of them asked the man in linen robes [ie., Christ] who was standing now above the river [ie., hovering over it] How long will it be before the terrors [of the end times] end? And He [Christ] replied with both hands lifted to heaven ... that they will not end until three and a half years after the power of God's people have been crushed.

Daniel 12:1, 3, 5-10

"... and there will be a time of anguish for God's people greater than any previous suffering in their history...

"And those who are wise shall shine as brightly as the sun’s brilliance, and those who turn many to righteousness will glitter like stars forever.

"Then I, Daniel, looked and saw TWO MEN on each bank of the river. And one of them asked the man in linen robes who was standing now above the river (hovering over it). 'How long will it be before the terrors end'?

"He (i.e., Christ) replied, with both hands lifted to heaven ... that they will not end until three and a half years after the power of God's people has been crushed.

"I heard what he said, but I didn't understand what he meant, so I said, 'Sir, how will this come out'?

"But He said, 'Go now, Daniel, for what I have said is not to be understood until the time of the end (i.e., until the latter days).

"'Many shall be purified by great trials and persecutions. But the wicked shall continue in their wickedness, and none of them will understand. Only those who are willing to learn will know what it means." (Daniel 12:6-10)

"And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

"These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them."

Revelation 11:3-8

"And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

"These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

"And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

"These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

"And when they shall have finished their testi-mony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

"And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." (Rev 11:3-8)

NOTE: In Scripture, the number "2" used in the context cited above signifies the CORPORATE nature of the "Two Witnesses."] The significance of this fact cannot be over-emphasized insofar as OUR (YOUR) part in the events of the "End of the Age"]


The Bible speaks of the Two Witnesses (Israel and the church) that He has chosen (see above) to give evidence against the world system of man – meaning the AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEMthe very system with which the APOSTATE CHURCH of today has allied itself -  the church of  Christian leaders (so-called) from whom the Prophetic Scriptures have been concealed: [Please see Part 7 of Chapter VIII, "Parables and Ciphers" (PRESS HERE) and our our articles, "Luciferic Christianity" (Press Here) and "The God Men of the American New World Order;" (Press Here) please also see "The Superman Theology of the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem." (Press Here)]

FALSE PROPHETS

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT:Alex Jones, Tim LaHaye, C. Peter Wagner, Mike Bickle, John Hagee, Francis Frangipane, Pat Robertson and James Dobson.

Specifically, the Bible says:

"And I will give power unto my two witnesses [ie., Israel and the Church], and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

"These are the two olive trees [Israel], and the two candlesticks [the Church] standing before the God of the earth. {Revelation 11:3} [Please see Part 2 and Part 3 of Chapter VIII of the New Antipas Papers [PRESS HERE]; please also see Part 6 ("The Two Witnesses") (PRESS HERE) of Chapter VIII of the New Antipas Papers.]

Then there is this passage of Scripture found in Revelation 20:4 which bears once again on the attempt by Satan to prevent the testimony of these TWO WITNESSES:

"And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were BEHEADED for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." (Rev 20:4)

Obviously, what Satan is attempting to do here is to prevent the testimony of the Two Witnesses – in this case, the church - by killing them off using the guillotine.

Finally, there are two inferences connected to these passages of Scripture that bear heavily on those of us alive at the "end of the age:"

First, the Scripture says

"Only those who are willing to learn will know what it [they] mean(s)." Daniel 12:4b)

Then the Scriptures say:

"'Many shall be purified by great trials and persecutions. But the wicked shall continue in their wickedness, and none of them will understand. (Daniel 12:10)

With regard to the Scripture above, one needs to take note of the fact that those who remain in the Apostate Church will have little or no understanding of what is occurring. What a damning condemnation of Apostate Christianity. [Please see Chapter XIV of the New Antipas Papers, "Apostasy: The Great Falling Away.] [PRESS HERE]

There are, however – even today - those "willing to learn." The Bible compares such people to THE SONS OF ISSACHAR, a group from the Tribe of Issachar who joined themselves to David and – in the eyes of many - rebelled against what appeared to be the established (God-ordained) authority of Saul. Nonetheless, the Bible commends what the children of Issachar did, calling them -

"... men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do ..." (1 Chronicles 12:32)

The question is, "Are you willing to learn?"


THE TIME OF THE END IS NOW !!!!

I hope so, because whether Christians are willing to admit it or not, we are teetering on the edge of the Tribulation Period. The great majority of Christians are prepared to give "lip service" to this concept, but most are like those about whom the Bible regarded as harboring in their cognizance the kind of thinking discussed by the Apostle Peter:

"Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." (2 peter 3:4)

Naturally enough, one might ask how such thinking is possible given the condition of today's world.

Well, be sure, it isn't the fact that most Christians are not aware of the turmoil that now encompasses the world; but they have lived so long with it, that they are inured to (hardened against) its significance – at least insofar as how it impacts their lives on a practical level.

The Bible compares this kind of thinking (naivety) to the kind of naivety impinging on a woman's pregnancy:

"... when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." (1 Thess. 5:3)

What happened here? The signs of her pregnancy were there for both the father and mother to see, but it had become so much a part of their lives that they hardly noticed it any longer.

There had been so many false alarms; such a lot of senseless running around - and so much so that despite the fact that by the eighth month of the mother's pregnancy she began to look like she was going to explode - they had become inured by it all.

AND THEN IT HAPPENED – THE BABY WAS COMING AND THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO TO STOP IT.

THE BABY WASN’T GOING TO WAIT

MOTHER GIVING BIRTH IN THE BACK SEAT OF HER CAR.


TAKE SPECIAL NOTE OF GOD’S WARNING:
IT IS MEANT FOR YOU !!

God's warning in 1 Thess. 5:3 is VERY clear: It is meant for those "... people whose hearts are waxed gross, and whose ears are dull of hearing, and whose eyes have closed ..."

Obviously, we are speaking here of Christians. Why? – because unbelievers have never been opened to these Scriptures. They are, as the Scriptures say, Christians who have gone through a process wherein their hearts have waxed gross and their ears are dull of hearing.

Remarking on this "hardening process," Clark's Commentaries on Daniel make it clear that the term "wicked" as it is used in Daniel 12:10 applies to those whose hearts have been hardened to the Scriptures. In this context, note carefully how those who are called "wicked" are likened to those who "do not understand." These are those about whom Jesus said:

"... it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given ...

"Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

"And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

"For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed ..." (Matthew 13: 11, 13-15)

Clearly, we are speaking about the leaders of today's apostate church and NOT merely about "unbelievers" per se, for what, as I just indicted, do "unbelievers" care about what the Prophetic Scriptures say; no need for Christ to hide anything from them – they don't care.

"... But the wicked shall continue in their wickedness, and none of them will understand." (Daniel 12:10)

WHAT IS THE EVIL SYSTEM OF MAN THAT THE TWO WITNESSES HAVE BEEN CALLED TO TESTIFY AGAINST?

So, exactly what is the IDENTITY of the counterfeit kingdom against which God says:

"I will give power unto my TWO WITNESSES, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days [42 months, 3- 1/2 years - in other words, the first half of the Tribulation Period], clothed in sackcloth [garments worn by mourners]." (Revelation 18:3)

What nation today answers to the description given to "BABYLON THE GREAT."

It is –

AMERICA: SATAN’S COUNTERFEIT KINGDOM

[Please see "THE AMERICAN EMPIRE: IN SEARCH OF BABYLON; WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?" [PRESS HERE] please also see Chapter XI of the New Antipas Papers, "ANTICHRIST: KING OF BABYLON."] [PRESS HERE]

No wonder, then, that the people of the earth, specifically those apostate Christians who support the American New World Order System, will –

"... rejoice over ... [their murder], and make merry; and they shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them ..." (Revelation 11:10)

After all, APOSTATE Christians everywhere – but especially in the United States – have invested their entire lives into the belief that the Kingdom of God can be built upon the foundation of "THIS PRESENT EVIL WORLD" (Galatians 1:4) – and that's exactly what Christian leaders (so-called) have been attempting to do. [Please see Chapter XIV, "APOSTASY: THE GREAT FALLING AWAY;" [PRESS HERE] please see our article, "APOSTASY: CHRISTIANITY IN THE SERVICE OF A RELIGIO-POLITICAL- TERRORIST STATE." [PRESS HERE] ]

It is against the wickedness of this very kingdom (ie., the world) that the Bible says Jesus:

"... gave himself up for our sins, THAT HE MIGHT DELIEVER US FROM THIS PRESENT EVIL WORLD, according to the will of God and our Father." (Gal 1:4)

THE WORLD: THE ENEMY OF GOD !!

The Bible tells us that the world is the enemy of God; specifically, it says:

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? WHOSOEVER THEREFORE WILL BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD SHALL BE THE ENEMY OF GOD. (James 4:4)

The Bible equates the world with DARKNESS. Specifically, the Bible says:

"And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and MEN LOVED DARKNESS [i.e., the world] rather than light, because their deeds were evil." (John 3:19)

Evil spirits – like great birds of prey - pouring into the world. They are the rulers of this present darkness. Are these the evil spirits with whom you want to make your home in eternity??

And that's not all! The Bible goes on to say -

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against  the rulers of the DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, against spiritual wickedness in high places." (Eph. 6:12)

And -

"I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not ABIDE IN DARKNESS [i.e., should not abide in the world]." (John 12:46)

And again -

"Then spake Jesus unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me SHALL NOT WALK IN DARKNESS [i.e., should not have his "living" and "being" in darkness], but shall have the light of life." (John 8:12)

John writes,

"In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and THE DARKNESS [i.e., the world] COMPREHENDED IT NOT." (John 1:4-5) [Please see our article, "Witchcraft and the Paranormal." [PRESS HERE]

And finally, the Apostle Paul exclaims:

"The WHOLE world [kosmos] lieth in the evil one [i.e., the WHOLE world is under the control of Satan]." (John 5:19)

Hence, Jesus says,

"My kingdom is not of this world." (John 18:36)

In other words, no one who has his "living" or "being" in the world can be made a "citizen" of the "Kingdom of God."

NO WONDER, THEN, THAT THOSE CHRISTIANS (SO-CALLED) WHO HAVE ATTEMPTED TO BUILD UP THE KINGDOM OF GOD USING THE WORLD AS THEIR FOUNDATION REJOICE WHEN THE TWO WITNESSES ARE MURDERED.

God bless you all!!
