City Against City
Ezekiel 22:3 KJVS
“Then say thou, Thus saith the Lord God, The city sheddeth blood in the midst of it, that her time may come, and maketh idols against herself to defile herself.”
This next phase of Egypt is the Latter Half of the Five Month Hour of Temptation, in which citizens of a city that is from above (Heavenly Jerusalem) will destroy themselves.
In the latter time of the Beast kingdom at the sounding of The Sixth Trump, the Lion (Third who are Christians,) will partake in Satan’s deception, and share that deception with each other, and as a result of that giving and taking in deception ( Matthew Chapter 24 verse 19) they will have their part in killing each other spiritually.
Galatians 4:26 KJVS
“But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.”
The Third who are Christians that defile themselves, and will lose their freedom that is from above (Galatians 5:1,) and will be subdued in ultimate bondage, thus changing them from a bride of Christ to a harlot, and from a citizen of a city that is free to a citizen of Babylon.
Heavenly Jerusalem is a City upon a hill.
Matthew 5:14-15 KJVS
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”
This is a city that is supposed to hold the Light of Christ, that shines into Darkness.
John 1:1-5 KJVS
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
This city that is from above is made up of those citizens who will have the Light of Christ which is Eternal Life and who will carry our Heavenly Fathers Truth (the Light of Men.)
However, many will lose their citizenship and destroy each other with Satan’s deception and will lose that Light. As they lose their Light, there will be those who remain part of the Heavenly Jerusalem, which is above, when Satan’s darkness fills the land at The Sixth Trump. Satan’s darkness will fill many, but those who remain free from Satan’s bondage will be used to bring our Heavenly Fathers Light to their darkness.
In the Latter Half of the Five Month Hour of Temptation at the sounding of the Sixth Trump, there will only be a Few Servants that will keep their citizenship to that City, and hold the True Light of Christ .
Daniel 8:23 KJVS
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.”
Transgressors = Rebellions( Plural) see notes for verse 23 on page 1196 in the Companions Bible.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 KJVS
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
This man of sin is the king of Fierce Countenance, that will stand up at the Sixth Trump.
This king with a fierce countenance will become an Idol to the Third who are Christians who make up The Lion.
The Transgressors ( Rebellions) will at that time come to full, and it will cause a Holy People to be polluted , defiled, and destroyed .
Daniel 8:24 KJVS
“And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.”
This is the Sixth Vial that will be poured out upon land.
Revelation 16:12-14 KJVS
“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
At the Woe of the Sixth Trumpet three Unclean Spirits will come out of the mouth of:
The Dragon = Satan ( Vile Person. )
The Beast = Satans 7,000 Fallen Angel’s, which includes 10 ( Horns) Fallen Angel kings.
The False Prophet = Satans role of the king with a Fierce Countenance( the false Christ.)
All three Spirits represent the fulness of Satan( Unholy Trinity. )
Satans appearance as this king will stand up in the midst of Daniel’s 70th Week ( Five Months) at the Woe of the Sixth Trump. He is also known as the last King if Babylon.
This is when total Babylon( Confusion) will come through Satan’s Evil Spirit of deception, and spill over into Egypt which is the whole world at that time. Satan’s deception will turn the world upside down .
We can see through many instances in our Heavenly Fathers Holy Word, that Jesus Christ is the only true way out of bondage
(John Chapter 14:6,) and especially this bondage with Death( Isaiah Chapter 28:15.)
Jesus Christ is the only one that can heal those that will be possessed with Satans deceptive Spirit during the Woe of the Sixth Trump.
Matthew 12:22-23 KJVS
“Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.  And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
Our Heavenly Father, through His Son, will use His Holy Spirit , to work through His Servants, to begin delivering many out of Satan’s dark bondage thus bringing them back to a city that is free, the Heavenly Jerusalem that is above.
The Holy Spirit will begin an Exodus for many out of Satans kingdom.
Our Heavenly Fathers Servants who are predestined to receive the Holy Spirit include the 232 Very Elect, and after they awaken the 144,000. Like Moses they will be used to deliver many out of this ultimate phase bondage during 666, and even many of those who come out, will be used by the Holy Spirit also.
Matthew 12:24 KJVS
“But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.”
Unfortunately there will be many who will refuse that deliverence from the Holy Spirit at that time , and remain in the confusion of that great city Babylon.
Isaiah 5:20 KJVS
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
Those who remain ( hardened hearts) will believe Satan as the Antichrist is a true bringer of light.
2 Corinthians 11:14-15 KJVS
“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
Matthew 12:25 KJVS
“And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:”
During the Woe of the Sixth Trump, many with freewill, will begin accept the Exodus provided by the Holy Spirit, and escape from Satans city of confusion ( Babylon, )
Gods Holy Spirit will begin to cause a division between those who will , and those who won’t come to the Light.
Matthew 10:34-36 KJVS
“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.”
This division will begin to end this phase of ultimate bondage, and I believe Satan at that time in his role of the false prince of peace will try to stop that Exodus from his kingdom from happening.
I believe like Pharaoh ( Exodus Chapter 14,) Satan will send in his chariots against those who exit.( Ezekiel Chapter 38, and 39.)
Matthew 12:26 KJVS
“And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?”
In the next study we will look at how Satan can be against Satan.
To be continued.
