Will You Recognize Jesus!?

MOST people who profess Jesus Christ will not recognize Him when He returns!

Joseph Farah – an American author, journalist, and editor-in-chief of the conservative website WorldNetDaily – correctly doesn’t believe so:
“Who is Jesus and how is [H]e going to come back?” Farah asked. “You know, a lot of people missed Jesus the first time He came. Most of the Jews did not recognize Him as their Messiah. They had a misunderstanding of how the Messiah was going to come. And they were going a lot by man’s teaching rather than going back to the Scriptures. And I wonder, when Jesus does come back, if many people in the church are going to miss Him too.” …

Farah believes the form of Jesus' return is going to surprise many Christians. And he warned in the interview how believers need to be educated about what to expect so they are not misled into following a disastrous deception. …

Are they going to recognize him? Or are they going to be fooled by an imposter that we call the Antichrist who is going to do all kinds of signs and miracles, et cetera?” …
He mourned the average Christian's lack of knowledge about the Millennial Kingdom and the earthly rule of Jesus. …

"If you ask the average Christian about that, they have no understanding," he explained. …”

Indeed, very few who profess Jesus Christ actually believe in a Millennial Reign of Christ – even though His living word teaches it (cf. Revelation 20:4-6; see also A Book of the Past – And The Future). The majority who are looking for Jesus believe that He will be a “sweet” Jesus. As in "looks like a lamb" - cf. Revelation 13:11. But in fact, He will not be so sweet – as the apostle Jude announces –
“’ Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him’” – Jude 1:14-15.

For ’ He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’! – Revelation 2:27.
Sadly, even fewer people in this world understand the Good News of the soon-coming kingdom of God!

What about the Roman Catholics – with an estimated 1.2 billion worldwide, according to the Vatican figures!?

Well, officially, they do not believe in a Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ – in spite of the fact that many of their “saints” taught the millennium. The Vatican strongly condemns this doctrine of the Church of God as blasphemous!
“676 The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the ‘intrinsically perverse’ political form of a secular messianism.”

Note – according to the Roman Catholic Church, this is the only doctrine of the Church of God which is associated with the Antichrist.  Certain Catholic writings and prophecies propagate that the Antichrist will –

  • Quote Scripture as proof of His Messiahship.
  • Keep and teach the seventh-day Sabbath.
  • Teach against idols and the Mass-of-Christ.
  • Teach that Catholic (which means all-embracing, or globe-girdling, universal) Christianity is false.
  • Teach “Jewish practices.”
  • Teach against the Trinity.
  • Preach and teach the Millennial Reign of Christ in the kingdom of God.
  • Teach that there is coming a future opportunity for salvation.
  • Be triumphant in the “Battle of Armageddon.”
  • Come after the destruction of The Vatican, Rome, and the “Holy” Roman Empire.
  • Claim to be Jesus Christ.
  • Have those who claim to be the resurrected saints of Jesus Christ.

Our Lord Jesus Christ in John chapter 5 verse 39 said that Scripture itself’ testify of Me.’” He kept and taught the keeping of the seventh-day Sabbath. He taught against the keeping of idols. He taught and WARNED against receiving a mark on your right hand or on your forehead – which is truly the giving of the sign of the cross across your chest or forehead, along with venerating the symbol and image of the cross with the wearing of crosses or the placing of the image of the cross above your doors or on your shield of armaments.  Our Lord Jesus taught that those who held to church tradition (the ‘doctrines of men’) above His living word are but worshiping Him “’ in vain, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men’” – cf Mark 7:6-13. Our Lord Jesus taught the keeping of all the Ten Commandments – “’ Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called the least in the kingdom [from] heaven’” – Matthew 5:19. Which means they will have a degraded and contemptuous position in the kingdom of God. And I like the way the Jamison Fausset and Brown Commentary writes it – “they shall be reduced by the retributive providence that overtakes them, to the same condition of dishonor to which, by their system and their teaching, they have brought down the eternal principles of God’s Law.” 1 Our Lord Jesus was a Jew – cf. Matthew 1:1-16; Revelation 5:5. Our Lord Jesus kept “Jewish practices,” teaching us to teach all nations the things which He commanded, setting us an example – cf. Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Peter 2:21-25. God’s living word does not teach of the false concept of a Trinity – cf. John 10:30; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 1 Peter 1:3. God’s living word and our Lord Jesus’ true servants teach of His soon-coming Millennium Reign on Earth! – cf. Revelation 11:15; Revelation 14; Revelation 20:1-6. There truly will be a future opportunity for salvation – cf. Ezekiel 37; Revelation 20:11-13. Truly, just prior to our Lord Jesus’ Second Coming – there will be a great earthquake (surely the likes of which the history of this world has never witnessed) “’ the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light’” – meaning the prophesied Two Witnesses will be prophesying and witnessing for 3½ years, given power from God Almighty to shut the atmosphere so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; … and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire” – see also Revelation 8:7-12, and End-Time Prophets - a seven-part series.

Our Lord Jesus Christ prophesied that just prior to His Second Coming – the stars of the atmosphere (speaking about Satan the devil and his demons) will fall to the earth. Meaning that Satan and his minions will not even be allowed in the atmosphere of the earth! “Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up” – truly meaning that just prior to our Lord Jesus Christ’s coming the atmosphere of the earth will be cleared of all the volcanic ash clouds and the residual radioactive material propelled into the upper atmosphere following nuclear blasts. “’ Then,’” as our Lord Jesus says, “’ the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven [in outer space], and then all the tribes of the earth [all the nations] will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory’” – Matthew 24:29-30.

Then those dead in Christ will be resurrected, and we who are still alive will be “caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air” – 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; see also verse 31 of Matthew 24. God’s holy saints are resurrected – the SEVENTH TRUMP HAS BEEN BLOWN!!

Then, “the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every [bond servant] and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains” – Revelation 6:15.


Because of what our Lord Jesus Christ said, “’ they will see [in outer space] the Son of Man [who they will mistake as an invading alien force] coming’”! “Fall on us and hide us,” they will scream, “from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from THE WRATH of the Lamb! For the great day [the Day of the Lord] of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” – vs. 16-17.

Sadly, it appears as if certain private Catholic prophecies – and according to Sandy Hooper, a former Catholic nun, Bible reading is not part of their curriculum – see The Testimony of a Former Roman Catholic Nun in which she stated, “We never read the Bible together outside what we had to do for morning prayers when reciting the Psalms, but even that wasn't in the Bible. The Psalms were in a book by itself” –  warning that when Jesus Christ returns He will be the Antichrist. This will be the main reason why the nations will be angry and will make war against the Lord of lords and the King of kings! –
“’ The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, …’” – this why it is said, “’ Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light’” – Ephesians 5:14. “ … ‘And that You [Jesus Christ] should reward Your servants the prophets [the very possible twelve end-time prophets, culminating in the end-time Two Witnesses] and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth’” – Revelation 11:18. 

“And I saw the beast [the seventh and final revitalization of the “Holy” Roman Empire], the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse [a brilliant white horse] and against His army [who also sat on white horses] – Revelation 19:19.
So, friends, not only are these false prophecies being propagated across the world, so also is the idea and belief in alien UFOs! This truly is the plan of our enemy – Satan the devil. □
