The servant was not greater than his master, nor the apostle than his Lord, as on general principles they knew, and as they had been specifically told. They that hated them hated the Christ; and they that hated the Son hated the Father; great shall be the condemnation of such. Had the wicked Jews not closed their eyes and stopped their ears to the mighty works and gracious words of the Messiah, they would have been convinced of the truth, and the truth would have saved them; but they were left without cloak or excuse for their sin; and Christ affirmed that in their evil course had the scriptures been fulfilled in that they had hated Him without a cause.
Many things which Christ yet had to say to His apostles, but which they were at that time unable to understand, the Holy Ghost would teach them. He shall glorify me: All things that the Father hath are mine: Turning again to the matter of His departure, then so near as to be reckoned by hours, the Lord said, in amplified form of what He had before affirmed: Jesus knew of their perplexity and graciously explained that they would soon weep and lament while the world rejoiced; this had reference to His death; but He promised that their sorrow should be turned into joy; and this was based on His resurrection to which they should be witnesses.
He compared their then present and prospective state to that of a woman in travail, who in the after joy of blessed motherhood forgets her anguish. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: The Lord again solemnly averred: Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: In the same connection He told them that before the night had passed every one of them would be offended because of Him, even as it had been written: In conclusion of this last and most solemn of the discourses delivered by Christ in the flesh, the Lord said: In the world ye shall have tribulation: The impressive discourse to the apostles was followed by a prayer such as could be addressed to none but the Eternal Father, and such as none but the Son of that Father could offer.
In it Jesus acknowledged the Father as the source of His power and authority, which authority extends even to the giving of eternal life to all who are worthy: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. Of them but one, the son of perdition, had been lost.
In the fervor of devoted supplication, the Lord pleaded:. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
The Scripture Verses
Sanctify them through thy truth: As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: When they had sung a hymn, Jesus and the Eleven went out to the Mount of Olives. Jesus and the eleven apostles went forth from the house in which they had eaten, passed through the city gate, which was usually left open at night during a public festival, crossed the ravine of the Cedron, or more accurately Kidron, brook, and entered an olive orchard known as Gethsemane, b on the slope of Mount Olivet.
Eight of the apostles He left at or near the entrance, with the instruction: And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: This part of His impassioned supplication was heard by at least one of the waiting three; but all of them soon yielded to weariness and ceased to watch. As on the Mount of Transfiguration, when the Lord appeared in glory, so now in the hour of His deepest humiliation, these three slumbered.
Returning to them in an agony of soul Jesus found them sleeping; and addressing Peter, who so short a time before had loudly proclaimed his readiness to follow the Lord even to prison and death, Jesus exclaimed: Aroused from slumber the three apostles saw the Lord again retire, and heard Him pleading in agony: A third time He went to His lonely vigil and individual struggle, and was heard to implore the Father with the same words of yearning entreaty.
Peter had had a glimpse of the darksome road which he had professed himself so ready to tread; and the brothers James and John knew now better than before how unprepared they were to drink of the cup which the Lord would drain to its dregs. When for the last time Jesus came back to the disciples left on guard, He said: The thought that He suffered through fear of death is untenable.

Death to Him was preliminary to resurrection and triumphal return to the Father from whom He had come, and to a state of glory even beyond what He had before possessed; and, moreover, it was within His power to lay down His life voluntarily. It was not physical pain, nor mental anguish alone, that caused Him to suffer such torture as to produce an extrusion of blood from every pore; but a spiritual agony of soul such as only God was capable of experiencing. No other man, however great his powers of physical or mental endurance, could have suffered so; for his human organism would have succumbed, and syncope would have produced unconsciousness and welcome oblivion.
In some manner, actual and terribly real though to man incomprehensible, the Savior took upon Himself the burden of the sins of mankind from Adam to the end of the world. Modern revelation assists us to a partial understanding of the awful experience. In March , the glorified Lord, Jesus Christ, thus spake: From the terrible conflict in Gethsemane, Christ emerged a victor.
The further tragedy of the night, and the cruel inflictions that awaited Him on the morrow, to culminate in the frightful tortures of the cross, could not exceed the bitter anguish through which He had successfully passed. It is probable that the determination to make the arrest that night was reached when Judas reported that Jesus was within the city walls and might easily be apprehended. The Jewish rulers assembled a body of temple guardsmen or police, and obtained a band of Roman soldiers under command of a tribune; this band or cohort was probably a detachment from the garrison of Antonia commissioned for the work of the night on requisition of the chief priests.
They were equipped with lanterns, torches, and weapons. While Jesus was yet speaking to the Eleven whom He had roused from slumber with the announcement that the betrayer was at hand, Judas and the multitude approached. Friend, do that for which thou art come. The armed band hesitated, though their guide had given the signal agreed upon. Mitchell won't be down here living through the trib, he will be up there with us, probably even sitting at our table: On the serious side though, someone said the other day that maybe the "great deception" will be that there won't be a pre-trib rapture, as many of us today believe, including me, and that that will be how many get pulled into the anti-christs web.
Even if that turns out to be the case, no pre-trib rapture, I believe that we are all knowledgable enough about the Bible to be able to recognize the anti-christ and not follow him or take his mark.
Nathan Jones said… " SeanOsborne, interesting theory. That's how I interpret that particular passage in Revelation These verse speak expressly to the antichrist's human body. I beleive that passage you cited in Revelation Interesting theological point you bring up, Sean as always! Will it be spirits consigned to Hell, or resurrected bodies?
We do know that the unjust will be resurrected at the end of the Millennial Kingdom for the Great White Throne Judgment and then consigned to Hell. Resurrection involves getting a rebuilt body.
The Last Supper
Because even the unjust get resurrected bodies, I would have to conclude that the False Prophet and Antichrist when sent right to the Lake of Fire must then also have their bodies, and would not be mere spirits. Reagan wrote a great article on resurrections and judgments that's well worth the read. Nathan Jones said… " Interesting theological point you bring up, Sean as always! The original question posed deals with events during the 7 years of Daniel's 70th Week. It deals with what I believe is the human body of the man who will be the "beast", the antichrist, the "in lieu of messiah" deception fostered by Satan.
I believe both a demonic spirit out of the abyss Luke 8: As a side note, I think but cannot theologically prove that that demonic spirit which comes up from the abyss might be the same demon who possessed the body of Antiochus IV Epiphanes. I based this condintionally upon Revelation At the conclusion of Daniel's 70th Week Revelation How does a physical human body survive for years in that environment?
The GWT judgment occurs 1, years later exactly as Dr. Reagan points out in the article you linked. Junbuggg, the way I see it is that if a Christian is expecting to meet Christ any day and is maintaining a close relationship with Him based on that expectation — then that person will not be deluded. Moreover, given that position, God will give that person the strength to cope with any persecution that may occur prior to the tribulation. I have little time for people who put forward the satanic delusion canard against opposing viewpoints, whether regarding the rapture or any other eschatological subject.
These are two separate places although some say that the LoF is in the center of Hell; i. Hades is the place of the dead. Remember the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man? Both were in this place, but one was suffering and the other wasn't. And they could see one another. Notice there is no mention of a resurrection or new bodies. The LoF, on the other hand, is a place of eternal torment for physical, ressurected bodies in the post-GWT universe.
Revelation: What It Is and How It Is Received
And, you know, I really hope believers don't have to go through the Tribulation. I'm barely holding on now: I couldn't imagine having to go through worse. To ever say that the antichrist will be resurrected, or suffer a fatal headwound and be brought back to life by the devil is complete HERESY, plain and simple. Only God is the giver of life, and if the devil could ever perform such miracles then he could have pretended to be a Christ and deceived us all. By your definition the Mormons and other cults do not teach heresy hartdawg. And I do not believe that God would allow the evil one to ever possess the power of creation or of life.
The Word says that the deception will be so great that even "the elect" might be deceived. This deception is apparently beyond human comprehension and speaks to great satanic deceiving power. When the deception happens in full force it will be obvious to the elect because we keep the true Word of God within us.
That is why we will not be deceived. We know the Truth. If it were possible the elect would be deceived, but it is not possible for the elect to be deceived. If it does refer to man being brought back to life then this is because God is permitting it. Reagan did some articles on this and you may be right about God not letting the evil one posses that power and sean, i may be mistaken but i believe the term "elect" in some contexts refer to christians and other contexts matt 24? The Beast that was: The Roman church began in ad and continued until Napoleon sent in General Berthier in ad …and is not: Evidence "Vigilius…ascended the papal chair A.
As in death for a peroid of time..
The dna of gene manipulation and stem cell regeneration technology is not that far off… gives one something major to ponder. This miracle may fool some.. Our Father which art in heaven…. I haven't seen anyone given any thought to Osama Ben Laden, didn't he supposedly die from a head wound? I have so many questions about Revelation yet never seem to find answers. The Bible says that men will seek death and not find it. I take that to mean that they CAN'T die even if they try for awhile.
Finally, the head wound of the antichrist must really be a bad one to make all the world except the wise wonder after him. Could he get beheaded and then healed during a time that people can't die? I'm just speculating because there's no way that I want to add to the words of Revelation or say the wrong things instead of taking it very seriously.
Mitt Romney was in a terrible car crash in France where his car was hit head on by a Catholic priest. Yes, a Catholic priest! The police pulled Mitt from the car and wrote "he is dead" on his passport. He, of course is alive now. This has so many implications. Did you see the image of Tupak Shakur that was "resurrected" on stage before a live, disbelieving audience. If that technology got just a little bit better, why couldn't a government "resurrect" a dead leader and make him say and do what they wanted him to?
The AntiChrist could be digitally brought back to life after his deadly wound. To the last first: Apocalyptic Prophecy is a topic which is less open beforehand than such topics which are already no longer beforehand but fulfilled. As to resurrections around Millennium, we take as Catholics Millennium to be the age of the Church, generally "first resurrection" as that of souls by baptism and confession.
Does anyone see a connection here to the young girl, Malala, who the world has been watching and 'rooting for' to receive the Nobel Peace Prize? Could she possibly be 'one' of the seven heads of the whole? The media is calling her 'head wound healing' miraculous — and the way the bullet traveled in her head as if it were being divinely directed. I don't see any connection to this girl who I find most annoying.
Even the neighbor who murdered her, she has known since he was seven years old. There are some who are uneducated, idiots, but they exist everywhere in the world. A second suspect was also arrested by police. On Tuesday morning, a French judicial source said the two suspects had been charged with the murder.
Police said Mireille Knoll had previously called police and complained that the neighbor had threatened to kill her.
