In my lifetime, there has been many failed predictions of the end and coming of Christ. In 1981 by Chuck Smith, 82 by Pat Robertson, 85 by Lester Sumrall, 88 by Edgar C. Wisenant, 91 by Menachem Mendel, 92 by Rollen Stewart, 93, by David Berg, 94 by Herold Camping, 95 by Herold Camping again, 99 by many people including Phillip Berg and James Gordon Lindsay, 2000 (which was the mother of all mess ups) was the predicted end by many people including Jerry Falwell, Ed Dobson, Lester Sumrall again, and Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins (authors of the Left Behind Series still vastly sold today), 2007 by Pat Robertson again, two different times in 2011 by Herold Camping for a third time, and the 2012 Mayan apocalypse.

All these different predictions and not a single one comes true. Why is this? Not, why did the end not come? That's a given - it wasn't the time. The question is, Why are all the predictions wrong? Two answers - the easiest first. Yeshua said, No one knows the day or the hour except God (Matt 24:36).

The second answer is a bit more diabolical and can only be understood when one understands prophecy. Think about that. The facts that end day predictions is wrong is located right within prophecy. Let me rephrase that for those who maybe didn't get it the way I said it. Prophecy, in a round about way, gives prophecy of the bad end day predictions. How is this.

When Old Rome was falling, it was divided into ten kingdoms. From those ten kingdoms a small powerful religious kingdom arose destroying three of the ten kingdoms. That small and powerful religious kingdom killed more Christians than any other empire in history. Some may have already figured out that the religious kingdom that arose out of Old Rome was Roman Catholicism. It's the empire that would have power over the saints for a time, times, and half a time in Daniel 7 and the seven headed beast that would have the power to persecute the saints for 42 months (same time period) in Revelation 13. But, it's not the Catholic kingdom you have to worry about.

The Reformers read how Christ left the riches of Heaven to come down to poverty for the service of sinners, the service of widows and the poor. The Catholic empire flourished in riches and power while treading down the poor. They taught a false gospel of maryinism, purgatory, confession, and relic's for salvation. The reformers looked at the Catholic kingdom and knew they were not representing the image of Christ; and therefore pulled away.

Many people started pointing the finger at the Catholic kingdom and called them the beast of Revelation, the great whore of chapter 17. So, under the order of the Catholic Church, Fransisco Ribera (a Jesuit priest of the Catholic Church) purposely distorted the way that end day prophecies were understood. For the first time, the beast of Revelation 13 were men instead of kingdoms, a seven year peace treaty theology was born along with a seven year tribulation period, a man to rule the end called anti-christ was born into end day prophecy, along with many other distorted interpretations.

The teachings of Ribera were widely rejected and thus put in storage by the Roman Catholic Church. They resurfaced as notes in the Bible called, the Scofield Bible. Later they were written in a book by Clarence Larkin, called Dispensational Truth. The book, Dispensational Truth, is considered to be the Bible of End Day prophecy in almost all Bible Colleges in America today and the majority of the teachings of the church, when talking about the end days, comes from this book.

Follow this pattern, the end day teachings taught in the majority of Christian circles today originated with a document that was intended to distort Biblical truth in end day prophecy. So, how is this prophesied in the Bible?

After the rise of the roman catholic church, another empire will arise. While the first empire, the catholic church, would persecute the saints militarily, the second would deceive the saints. Since satan could not kill off the Christians, he would prove that those who profess to follow God would love the world more than God. The second empire would rise up out of the vastness of the land and look like a Christian empire; yet this empire would speak lies. The people of this empire would build an image of the first empire. You see, it would be a professing Christ following empire by name only because they would be the richest people in all of history while ignoring the poor. They would teach a false gospel of "asking Jesus in your heart" and "saying a prayer" for salvation. The people of this empire would claim to follow a Christ who gave all for the service of man to bring salvation and yet live in their affluence while ignoring the majority of the world who is lost and dying of hunger related diseases. They would live in their false gospel while falling for a false teaching of the first beast on how to determine, so called, end day prophecy.

The book of Revelation is sandwiched between a promise that He who reads, understands, and follows the writings in the book would be blessed. The phrase "He who reads" is saying "ANYONE who reads", which means the book is relative to all people through all time. You see, the Bible tells us that it's hard for a rich man to go to Heaven, that to store up is foolish, to ignore the poor is unloving. We are told that we can not serve both God and riches. And, Revelation is warning us of the two most major empires that profess a following of God while living in the lap of luxury and vastly ignoring the poor. It would look like, and be called God's country but be the first republic of satan; because, in the satanist religion, the goal is to have as much things and pleasure in life as you possibly can - and that is America. And this second empire is following the distorted end day teaching of the first empire, the catholic church.

Here we are again. It more than a week past the climax of the predicted shemitah, which was popularized by Jonathan Cahn in two books he’s authored, and nothing has happened. We are a week past September 13, 2015 and people are still talking about shemitah, and still waiting for it’s end. We are a week past and people don’t even realize it. They don’t realize it because they just followed a popular teacher like cattle to the slaughter.

Get this. If you bought one of Jonathan Cahn’s books, you might as well burnt your money instead. The only thing you succeeded at was making his books a New York Time best seller and making that man rich. Think about this. If you were really that concerned about the end, if the end is really that important, then you would have spent God’s money on trying to reach the lost rather than using it to purchase a book of false predictions.

If you didn’t purchase a book but just regurgitated the popular message without ever examining Scripture, then you are just as much the problem. Stop blindly following people and stop blindly following every popular teaching that comes down the religious pipe; get off the TV, get your head out of the sports and Facebook, and stop working your life away to pay for a bunch of toys that your family gets to use while your at work. Get into the Word of God. It’s the only way you will really be able to know the Character of God and be able to prevent yourself from being deceived.
