Main reference: Mt 24:3 (2Thes 2:1-12, Rv 13)
What are the signs of the end of age mentioned in the main reference? What are betrayal, destruction, and salvation? After fulfilling the prophecies of the Old Testament, Jesus spoke of these things of the New Testament which he will fulfill. The end of age is the end of the churches, and the signs are the signs of the betrayal, destruction, and salvation that will appear at the time of the Lord’s second coming.
In other words, Jesus said that the churches of all nations will crumble because of their betrayal, like the time of Noah and Lot. At this time, people who betray like Adam appear (Rv 13, Rv 18), and false pastors of the dragon who enter the tabernacle of heaven and devour the chosen people (Rv 2, Rv 3, Rv 13), like the snake (devil) during Adam’s time, appear as well. The end of age of the churches occurs as the entire world becomes the world of Satan. The destroyer conquers the tabernacle of the chosen people and stands in the holy place. When this happens, the male child born of the woman of the tabernacle of heaven in Rv 12 receives the revelation of heaven (Rv 1, Rv 10). He fights and overcomes the group of the dragon, and through this victory there is God’s kingdom and salvation. These are the prophecies of the New Testament and a reality that will fulfill. These things must take place for the Lord to return. That is why he compared this era to the time of Noah and Lot (Lk 17:26-30). Those who claim that they are the orthodoxy and had already received salvation when these events did not yet take place are speaking words of deception.
Let us examine the signs of the end of age in Matthew 24, the entire books of Revelation, and 2 Thessalonians 2.
Matthew 23 and John 5 are about events that took place during Jesus’ first coming. They speak of the fulfillment of the prophecy in Ezekiel 37. The content in Matthew 24 is a prophecy that will fulfill at the time of the Lord’s second coming.
In Matthew 24, the disciples heard Jesus say that the temple will crumble. In response, they asked, “When will this happen and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of age?” Jesus answered starting from verse 4.
First, he warned to not be deceived, for many will come in his (Jesus) name and deceive. Those who deceive are not unbelievers, but pastors who testify to Jesus. At this time there will be a war. Nations will rise against nations, kingdom against kingdom. The war is between God’s nation and Satan’s nation: God’s temple, pastor, and congregation against Satan’s churches, pastors and church members. These two organizations wage in spiritual wars, in heated debates using ecclesiastical authority and church doctrine. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other. There will be increase of wickedness, and the abomination that causes desolation will stand in the holy place and reign. In this war, the devil’s pastors and congregation members rise as the victor, while the pastors and congregation members on God’s side get defeated and become enslaved. Their defeat is expressed as, “the sun, moon, and stars will be darkened and will fall from the sky (Spiritual Israel that belonged in heaven)” (Mt 24:29; Rv 6:12-13). Like Adam, they return to dust and become mere flesh; though they were once the people of heaven, they become the people of the earth. Jesus spoke of these signs of the end of the churches. These are the signs of the Lord’s second coming that make known of the destruction of the world of the former-heaven that became corrupt. Can you believe in this?
After this, Jesus and the angels appear in that world and begin gathering the sons born of God’s seed from the north, south, east, and west. This is the work of harvest. Harvest takes place in the churches where God’s seed had been sown. However, the churches have lost their lights under Satan’s power, so Jesus and the angels come like a thief in the night to call out the people in secret (after the sun, moon, and stars are struck, darken, and fall). God seals those who are harvested with the word of revelation from heaven in Revelation 7 and creates His nation of 12 tribes.
Who are the betrayers, destroyers, and the saviors at that time?
The betrayers are the pastors and the members of each church. Why are the pastors and congregation members the betrayers? They once belonged to heaven before the destroyers appeared, but because they get destroyed by Satan and his pastors, they fall from heaven to earth. Like Adam they return to dust.
Who are the destroyers? As written in Matthew 23, Matthew 24, Revelation 2, Revelation 3, Revelation 13, Revelation 17, and Revelation 18, they are the pastors belonging to the devil. They force the betrayers into submission using their ecclesiastical authority and church doctrine.
At that time, the chosen people of God betray, because they get deceived by the pastor of the hostile enemy by receiving their doctrine. Because of their betrayal, they receive destruction from the enemy. At the end of age, God’s churches betray as they get deceived by the group of the devil, the same way Adam and Eve betrayed as they obeyed and worshiped the deceiver. Like Adam and Eve, they get destroyed because of their betrayal. In other words, the chosen people’s duty within God comes to an end, and they fall away from Him to side with Satan, because they have obeyed and worshiped Satan’s pastors. This is the destruction of the chosen people.
A person is a murderer if he murders someone. Following this logic, a person is a destroyer if he invades and destroys God’s chosen people.
In this end of age, the churches have been destroyed because of their betrayal. They are no longer God’s nation, pastor, and church members, for they have become the possessions of Satan. During this time, the messenger (promised pastor, savior) sent by the Lord comes according to Revelation 1, 2, 3, and 10, and leads a movement of repentance, seals the people of God with the word of revelation, and creates the new nation. These two worlds are the first heaven and first earth and the newly created heaven and earth—new heaven and new earth—found in Revelation 21. One world ends because of betrayal while the other is created into a nation of people born of God’s seed.
What happens to those who are not harvested and sealed in this era? Who are they? They are one of the two seeds that are sown in the field (Mt 13:24-30). They are the devil’s weeds that are left in the field. They will receive destruction and burn in the fires of hell.
At this time, the one whom God sent will speak the word of God and proclaim the fulfillment of Revelation. The one who received the word of revelation overcomes Satan, receives the food of eternal life, the authority to judge, and the iron scepter to rule all nations. God, Jesus, and heaven come down to him, and together, he governs all nations. He brings cessation of war and fulfills peace so that this world becomes a world of peace where God reigns (refer to Rv 2, Rv 3, Rv 19:6). This is the end of age and recreation, and the reality of betrayal, destruction, and salvation.
I am the messenger of Jesus, and I have come to make this known to the churches. The one who believes will receive salvation.
