“And he shall change the SEASONS and the TORAH.”
Even most so-called scholars do believe this is the ‘anti-christ’ that Shaul, Kefa, and Yokhanan all wrote about.
[Paul, Peter, and John]
They did not invent the idea of a “Liar Messiah.” This future human is prophesied about quite at length in the Torah and the prophets.
But Daniel ‘calls him out.’
He tells us several things about him:
“He shall speak words against Elyon [G-d Most High]”
“The K’doshim of Elyon he shall abuse.” [Set apart ones, dedicated ones of Elyon]
“He shall CHANGE the SEASONS and the TORAH.”
Shaul affirms this in 2 Thess 2:5-12
“Do you not remember that when I was with you I told you these things? And now you know what has prevented him from being revealed in his time. For the mystery of INIQUITY is ALREADY at work, until that which now hinders is taken out of the midst of them. Then shall the WICKED ONE be exposed, that one whom Adoneinu Yeshua shall consume with the breath of His mouth, and shall destroy with the revelation of His coming, even he whose coming is due to the working of HaSatan, with all power and signs and LYING wonders, and with all DECEITFULNESS of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they received not the love of the TRUTH, that they might be saved thereby. For this reason Elohim shall send them [those who did not love TRUTH] strong delusion that they should believe THE LIE, that all who did not believe in the truth, but preferred unrighteousness, might be condemned.”
Iniquity and Unrighteousness in the mind of the Jewish Shaul is BREAKING TORAH. Not the least of which commandments is KEEPING THE SABBATH, the PERPETUAL sign of the people of G-d.
Yokhanan [John] tells us that MANY LYING MESSIAHS have ALREADY COME! Just as Shaul said the ‘mystery of iniquity’ is ALREADY at work [above].
Again, iniquity is a Jewish term for breaking Torah. Breaking the Sabbath is one of the first ‘signs’ that one has turned from G-d. The Sabbath was given to ALL MANKIND in Gan Eden.
[Gen 2:1-4, Mark 2:27, “The Sabbath was made for MANKIND, and NOT mankind for the Sabbath.” Yeshua]
1 Yokhanan 1:18 ::
“My children, it is the last time; and as you have heard that a false messiah shall come, EVEN NOW there are MANY false messiahs, and from this we know that it is the last time.”
[Messiah means ‘anointed one,’ MANY false ‘messiahs’ are ‘many lying anointed ones,’ ie FALSE ‘Christians;’ ‘christian’ is a derived word from the greek for ‘anointed,’]
He further shows us that denying that Messiah IS right now in flesh is the true test of whether someone is from G-d, or from HaSatan.
Ask any catholic theologian, and he will tell you that ‘christ’ is NOT, RIGHT NOW, in a human body, but that the father and the son and a ghost share a body. These are the ‘lofty words’ against the Most High that Daniel predicted! Study John’s three little letters and see that he was exposing false BELIEVERS in the Kahal [church]. NOT pagans who were still pagan. Do we think John and Paul were just whistling Dixie? Did they not predict BAD DOCTRINE.
“Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the teaching of Mashiakh DOES NOT HAVE ELOHIM. He who abides in HIS teaching has both The Father and The Son.” 2 John 1:9
Messiah upheld and taught the Torah. HE said so. NOT me. Matt 5:17-19
Shaul upheld and taught the Torah. HE said so. NOT me. Rom 3:31, 7:7, 12- 14, 25.
Yokhanan upheld and taught the Torah. HE said so. NOT me. 1 John 2:6, 3:4
Ya’akov [James] upheld and taught the Torah. HE said so. NOT me. James 1:25
So, Shaul and Yokhanan BOTH declare that the son of perdition’s INIQUITY was ALREADY rampant in the CHURCH! WAY back in the 1st century! And they were trying to CORRECT IT!
“CAST THEM OUT.” “COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM.” “HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM.”
Each of these ‘them’ statements is about ‘professed’ believers, written to SET APART ONES.
“Set them apart by YOUR TRUTH. YOUR WORD is Truth.” Yeshua, Yokh 17:17
Many LYING ‘anointed ones’ have ALREADY COME! INDEED! And they oppose the FACT that Yeshua is STILL a Man, still a JEW! STILL a Sabbath Keeper, and still honors HIS TORAH.
They abuse the SET APART ONES. Check history on who has been persecuted for KEEPING FAITH with scripture, and by whom.
They indeed CHANGE the SEASONS AND the TORAH.
These were the first acts of Constantine and his minions. HE destroyed the Sabbath among BELIEVERS, created the worship of the ‘church’ on the great day of Sol Invictus [his pagan god for the rest of his life], and allegorized the Torah, CHANGED it. HE changed the very nature of it to ALL who would follow after, including ‘scholars’ who ALL view it through HIS IMPOSED lens. He and those after had to begin to KILL anyone who spoke with this voice, what has been expressed here today. It will happen again.
Look now how faithful people are marginalized, and people of faith are being sifted. Twenty years ago I was absolutely ALONE in ‘seeing’ this, but now Messiah is truly waking up the remnant, HIS BRIDE. He has allowed the wheat and the weeds to grow together, and because of false shepherds, the weeds have all but overrun the wheat. But, HE is now revealing HIS TRUTH, HIS WORD, to those who would dare to read it! Without pretense and preconceived doctrines by which to interpret it. And HE is calling them OUT from among ‘them.’
“OH, that my people would only HEAR ME! And walk in MY WAYS.”
“Thus says יהוה, ‘Stand in the ways, and see, and ask for the OLD paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls.’ But they said, ‘We will not walk therein.’” Jer 6:16, 1 John 2:6
