A58)  False teachings that will enter the church, (S. Dobbs, 2006).

(This links to words No’s A55, A48, A46, A56, A57, A43, A25, A40, A45, A24, C23, C45, C27, C38 and also end of word No C15).

Introduction: The Lord ministered this word to me by His Spirit in July 2006. It identifies the following false teachings which although not prevalent in the church at present will become major infiltrations from the kingdom of darkness in the future. The Lord wants us to be prepared for these in advance. Because of the subject matter involved I would like to underline that this did not come about as a result of any rational analysis on my part, none at all; instead it came to me unexpectedly, and quickly, as a series of visual impressions, each with a very clear interpretation, which is the way the Lord usually ministers to me. I’ve attempted to put these into words that best reflect what I was shown. I chose the scriptures below myself though, to give context, as many Christians today are unfamiliar with the book of Revelation. Please note that anything else that the Lord did not actually show me Himself, or that is based on my own opinions, has been put in brackets to separate this from the word itself.

False Teachings: Firstly I was shown that false teachings are usually more dangerous to Christians than when a believer mistakenly moves in the wrong spirit. I saw that this was because moving in the wrong spirit was like slipping on oil which would often be a more temporary mistake. A false teaching however involved a permanent error in a person’s mindset which would almost always cause that person to go off in the wrong direction in a permanent way.

The Holy Spirit then revealed to me some of the false teachings that are going to enter the church in a major way in the future, especially the church of the western world.

The Thousand Year Reign of Christ: I saw that false teachers will distort the scriptures relating to the thousand year reign of Christ. [It may be helpful if you read all of Rev Chapters 19 and 20 as I’ve only included extracts below]:

Rev Ch 19 v.11 to Ch 20 v.6; v. 11” behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True”, v.13His name is called The Word of God...”, v.15 “Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron...” v.16 “on His thigh a name was written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” v. 19and I  saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse” v.20 “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence,  by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast...”Ch 20 v.1 “Then I saw an angel..” .v.2 “He laid hold of the dragon,...who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years...  v.4 “Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus ... who had not worshipped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands...  they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”.v.5 “But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.”  v.6 “Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power”, (N.K.J.V).

I was shown by the Holy Spirit that these false teachers will claim that this is the rule of the church over the entire world, for a thousand years, in this age, before the end times even start.

I saw that they will also promote an erroneous earthbound view of Christianity, combining and confusing this with western civilisation. They will claim that when the church and western civilisation govern the entire world this will be the start of the thousand year reign of Christ. I saw that this false teaching will be pan American, i.e. centred on the USA and its western allies, instead of on Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God.

I was shown that the nations of the western world will start linking in more closely with a deceptive, apostate, counterfeit form of “Christianity” that will become increasingly prevalent within them, full of all sorts of deception.  

Many of the “Christian” leaders who become influenced by these apostate “Christian” teachings will seek, and be given, leading positions within the interfaith movement as well. Over time the two will start to merge as a result as this counterfeit “Christian” movement starts dominating and governing the global interfaith movement. The false teachers will then claim that Christ’s thousand year reign will be based on this interfaith belief system.

As the western powers gain an even greater hold over the rest of the world, as I saw they will, they will start promoting this western based, interfaith, counterfeit form of “Christianity” around the world as well.

I saw that the false teachers will also say “we are not in the end times, there is a thousand years before the end times will start” but this will all be a lie from the devil based on deception and this distortion of the scriptures.

The First Seal and the Rider on a White Horse:  I was shown that another false teaching will centre on “The Rider on a White Horse” following the first seal in Revelation Ch 6.

Rev 6; 1 - 3 “The lamb opened one of the seals... And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. When he opened the second seal...”

False teachers will claim that this also symbolises the reign of this counterfeit church combined with the western powers over the earth for a thousand years. They will offer this false teaching as evidence from the bible that this thousand year reign comes before the end times. They will claim that this is because the first seal and the rider on a white horse comes before the other three seals which all relate specifically to end times events. They will say that the thousand years must therefore take place before the end times even start. This teaching will also be based on error though.

I felt to include this scripture here;

 2 Tim 4; 3, 4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables”.

I understood that many people who claim to be Christians are presently caught up in spiritual adultery; they are worldly and unfaithful to God in their hearts. Many of them will therefore be unwilling to suffer for Christ or the true faith in the future and will be repulsed by the idea that we may be approaching the end times as this will threaten their worldly aspirations. As a result many will revolt in their hearts against this and in so doing will revolt against the truth of scripture.

The New Roman Empire: Most/many scholars believe that the feet of iron and clay in Daniels vision, (see Dan 2; 33, 41-45), symbolises the re-emergence of the Roman Empire as a New/Revived Roman Empire. I was shown in the Spirit that this is the case. I saw that there will also be a false teaching promoted about this which will be almost a reversal of this truth.

The Lord showed me that the New Roman Empire is already emerging now, as it did before, in the form of western civilisation, [the old Roman Empire was centred in Western Europe]; the New Roman Empire in Daniels vision is the re-emergence of the dominance of western civilisation. I understood that the New Roman Empire also includes the USA. [Today the USA is the most powerful nation within western civilisation; it was also settled mainly by Western Europeans]. As the Catholic Church ended up dominating the old Roman Empire after it compromised and acquired great influence within that system so the new counterfeit “Christian” movement will gain great influence within the western world. A false teaching will state that the thousand year reign of Christ will be the global rule of this false “Christian” movement within the New Roman Empire .

However the Lord showed me that in the end times the antichrist and his Beast empire, (see Rev Ch 13), will use these same dominant western nations as an earthly powerbase from which to control the rest of mankind. In reality the New Roman Empire will therefore be the control centre of the beast empire not the reign of Jesus Christ:

The Antichrist and the Resurrection: False teachers will promote an alternative saviour; they will claim that this man will rule the world during [part of?] the thousand year period instead of Jesus Christ reining directly Himself. However once this other leader, this false messiah, has gained political power and control over the entire world he will emerge as the antichrist.

False teachers will claim that this man, the antichrist, is offering the resurrection life that the bible teaches us about. They will claim though that the resurrection is just the increased influence and restored government of a form of western “Christianity” over the secular world.

The Lamb that was slain: I was shown by the Holy Spirit that false teachers will confuse the symbolism used for the Lamb of God, (i.e. Jesus Christ), with that used for the beast from the earth, (who will deceive mankind into receiving the mark of the beast). Compare, for example, the following verses which represent these two separate things. If you have time reading the complete scriptures will be clearer than reading just these extracts:

Rev 5; 6 -13 “in the midst of the throne... stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes... the twenty-four elders fell down before the lamb ... And they sang a new song saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood...”Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power...”Blessing and honour and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!”

[The above scripture clearly refers to Jesus Christ but this next image doesn’t. One can see how dangerous such a deception could be, confusing the Lamb of God with the following beast.]

Rev 13; 11-18 “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon... he... causes the earth and those that dwell within it to worship the first beast... He performs great signs... and he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs... and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all... to receive a mark on their right hand or their foreheads, and no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name... His number is 666”.

God showed me that false teachers will claim the word “slain” in “the Lamb who was slain” symbolises the temporary decline that we’ve seen in recent history in the government of the church over secular society within western civilisation. They will state that when the church increases in influence once again over secular society through a revival, this will be the resurrection from the dead that the bible predicts.

These false teachers will not promote genuine Christianity but instead the influence of the increasingly apostate, counterfeit form of New Age, interfaith “Christianity” that will appear in the west. I saw that this false “Christian” movement will be given much political power by the western nations. I saw that this will be similar to the way in which the Catholic Church had received great political power from the Roman Empire many centuries ago.

I saw that eventually this false “Christian” interfaith movement will persecute all genuine followers of Christ who will all be in complete disagreement with it. This persecution will ultimately lead to the introduction of the mark of the beast.

The Mark of the Beast: Lastly I was shown that these false teachers will encourage people to receive the mark of the beast claiming that it is the mark of the Lamb. They will confuse the scriptures that relate to these things. For e.g. Rev Ch 7 refers to the mark of God and Ch13 to the mark of the beast:

Rev 7; 3“Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”

Rev 13; 16 -18; “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name... His number is 666”.

False teachers will therefore appear within the church and twist the true teachings and prophecies of scripture, telling people that the end times are far away and encouraging them to follow after the antichrist and his beast empire stating that this is the Lamb of God. They will use what will be a new, increasingly apostate, new age influenced “Christian” movement linked to a global interfaith belief system to deceive many, ultimately encouraging believers and unbelievers alike to receive the mark of the beast.

Other False Teachings:

An Adam likeness: Some time later God showed me another false teaching that will emerge.  False teachers will claim that we will ultimately be transformed into an “Adam likeness” instead of into a “Christ likeness” and being in Christ. [This will also be an earthbound teaching, suggesting that we will ultimately be transformed back into the state that Adam was in before the fall. I was not shown this part in brackets but it seems to me that all sorts of earthbound teachings could spin off from this, for e.g. that our faith will completely overcome illness so we will never die, or that modern science will advance to a point where we can live forever, replacing the bibles teaching on receiving the gift of eternal life from God. As we know though the scriptures state that at the resurrection we will become like Christ, who was raised from the dead by the power of Gods Holy Spirit and that believers will received new resurrection bodies like His, not just the ability to prolong the life of our present bodies].

A variety of false teachings: On another occasion, (sometime between 2006 and 2007), the Lord showed me that a wide variety of deceptive teachings will flourish in the church, (especially the church of the western world), as we head towards the end times, varying at first from denomination to denomination and from one individual to another; but that over time these will be drawn together by the devil to promote a more unified counterfeit belief system. I saw that many of those who get deceived will be willing to compromise on the first false teachings that they have been deceived by and later on adopt new false teachings that line up closer with the beasts emerging end time’s belief system. So false teachings will vary widely to start with, with no clear pattern but will polarise as time goes by into a recognisable counterfeit belief system which will ultimately lead to the worship of the antichrist.

A counterfeit religion: [As it was the Lords Holy Spirit who revealed all of the false teachings above I expect that these particular teachings will therefore form the bedrock of false doctrine that will form the core of the antichrists final counterfeit belief system. See links at top of page for other words which relate to this].
