In Part 3 of our series on the end times prophet Malachi, Sheldon Emry completes his discussion of the return of Christ, the destruction of the enemies of Israel, and the establishment of his kingdom on earth — a complete refutation of the “Rapture” doctrine preached today by the majority of so-called “judeo-Christian” pastors and churches.
Sheldon Emry continues:
Since there is so much false teaching about Christ’s return from men who get their information about Christ’s return from the New Testament, let’s turn to 2 Peter 3:
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
This sounds like a dreadful time, especially to those who do not want Jesus to return, and do not want his Kingdom — and it does not sound anything like the silent, secret “Rapture” that is taught and promoted by so many of the fundamentalists.
Those unfamiliar with the New Testament could think this is about some other time — but going back to the first verse of 2 Peter, you’ll see what the time is here that he’s talking about:
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
So the rest of this chapter is about the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the end of the age — because the scoffers — these humanists — do not believe that Jesus is going to return — so they will say where is the promise of his coming? They will question Jesus ever returning:
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
There is going to be an entirely different event coming upon these two classes of people — those who hate him, and those who look forward to him. 2 Thessalonians 1:1 does sound quite a bit like Malachi:
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
Paul is warning Christian people that they should be careful in this future time so that they don’t get fooled about the day of Christ — whether it’s right at hand — or not:
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
He’s explaining what must happen first before His return. The “falling away” is usually the falling away from the truth — or it’s an apostasy from the Greek word. But the falling away causes something to happen — that man of sin be revealed. I’m inclined to believe it’s from a Greek expression that means a falling away of the scales from one’s eyes. There shall come a falling away first, then something is revealed — you can now see it.
The fundamentalists and Rapture preachers say there is going to be a turning away from the truth, then Jesus is going to come and take away all Christians — and after he is gone with the Christians, then the Man of Sin is revealed. But according to Paul here, the Man of Sin is revealed before Christ comes.
Every person who’s been taken in by the Rapture doctrine should read these verses because he’s saying,
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
They say that “Man of sin” is their “anti-Christ”. We believe it is something else — but it has to be revealed before Jesus comes.
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
These verses are enough to bring into question the teaching that the so-called “anti-Christ” will not be revealed until after Jesus returns.
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
John saw heaven open and a figure we can identify as Jesus Christ coming out of heaven — and he’s going to judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
So this would be Jesus, the word made flesh.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
This would be Jesus coming with wrath and anger and making war. This is not the Jesus of the silent, secret Rapturists.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
Here is a great battle — so terrible that he’s going to call the fowls of the earth to eat up the flesh of those who die in this great battle upon the return of Jesus Christ. This battle is practically identical to the one described in Ezekiel 39.
19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; 20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
Jesus will not return — according to this New Testament passage — until it is God’s time for the restitution of all things. This nonsense that is constantly preached that Jesus is going to come and take all the Christian people off to heaven is the exact opposite of the truth.
Jesus is going to come here to establish his followers in his kingdom here on the earth. And a good share of that re-establishment apparently is going to be done before he returns — and his saints will be involved in a great battle at the time he returns. And then he will judge and make war — and destroy the enemies of his people and establish his kingdom.
And there is no place in any of the prophets for any “seven year reign” of the anti-Christ while the followers of Jesus Christ are not here. It simple does not exist in any of the prophets in the Old or New Testaments.
3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. 4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.
The offering that was refused was the offering of Levi — because they offered a polluted sacrifice. Now the one that will be received will be the offering of Judah — and that is Jesus Christ, who was born out of Judah. Jesus is physically and spiritually out of David and the Tribe of Judah, and he is our offering.
5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.
He’s going to be a against the sorcerers — the druggers — those mind controllers and health destroyers. He will be against the adulterers who are worshipers of false gods. Against the false swearers — today’s so-called ‘men of God’ who preach against God and the true Israel people. And he is against the economic oppression of the Babylonian system.
6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
We will not be destroyed even though we have sinned and committed iniquity against God because we are under a covenant. God has sworn to our fathers —Abraham, Issac, and Jacob — that he will deliver Israel from all her enemies.
So many of our people who are in churches who preach only the New Testament — they read some of these things, and almost invariably they cannot be explained from the New Testament, so then they apply them to them personally or in a spiritual manner — and destroy the true meaning of it.
So let’s reach this prophecy by Zacharias, who was a priest in Israel, the father of John the Baptist, given shortly before the birth of Jesus Christ:
67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, 68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
The act is redemption, and now we are going to read what redemption is — because this is often misunderstood:
68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, 69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; 70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: 71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
Very few of the church-goers in America that God has promised to save us from our enemies. They see this world anti-Christ system — they see all its power — and they see the humanists taking over their government and educational system, and establishing their anti-Christian religion, and they recognize those people are enemies of Christians, but they do not know they are under a covenant involving Jesus Christ that they should be saved from those enemies — and it’s in the New Testament, but they don’t read it — or understand it. Luke 1:
72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; 73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
What have the New Testament writers based their prophecies of our deliverance at the end of the age on? They base it on the oath that God swore to father Abraham — and that’s what Zacharias is prophecying here:
74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, 75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
That is what the kingdom is all about — deliverance of Israel from her enemies, eternal life, and to serve God all the days of our eternal life. But we have to be delivered from our enemies — and that’s what we’ve been reading about in Malachi is that deliverance and the turning to God before the establishment of the kingdom.
And here we see it’s verified in a prophecy about Jesus Christ before he was born.
6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
No, you’re not going to be snatched off to heaven — you are going to be delivered from the hands of your enemies right here on the earth during the time of the consuming of Jacob’s enemies.
But then he begins with another rebuke:
7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?
This is always the call of God through his prophets to Israel — return unto God and God will return unto you. But look in this case — Israel asks the question: “But ye said, Wherein shall we return?” Israel does not know how to return to God. So even in this time, apparently Israel is going to be asking how they can return to God. And here is the answer that would amaze most New Testament Christians:
8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me.
God says you’re robbing me — but he didn’t answer the question yet. Then Israel asks again:
But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. 9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. 10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. 11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
What are the enemies of Israel doing today? They are robbing Israel of everything they work for, but God says “I’ll rebuke the devourer.”
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
Predicated upon what? Quit robbing God. And then he tells Israel what he will do if they give the proper tithes and offerings — he would take away the curse, open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing, and rebuke the devourer. And when is this supposed to happen? Right in the time, in the day of the Lord, before Jesus’ coming when God is preparing to destroy all the enemies of Israel.
Now, many Christians have been taught that God has put away the laws — including the law of tithing — by Jesus Christ and the New Covenant. But one thing is positive — Israel is not tithing today.
A man told me a story — he said, “You know, I learned about tithing that hard way. I attended church very diligently and I gave rather generously, I thought, and I finally ended up tithing, God finally reduced my income until it was ten times my tithe.” God reduced his income every year until it got down to the money he was giving in his church. And once he realized what was happening, he began giving more money, and his income began to go up again.
The first time we find tithing discussed is in Genesis 14:
18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. 19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: 20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
Abram gives tithes to the priest of the most high God. Hebrews 6:
13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, 14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. 15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 16 For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. 17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: 18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
God stated his promise to Abraham — and then he confirmed it several times. Remember, the covenant at Sinai had two parties — God and Israel — but Israel broke the covenant, but under the Abrahamic Covenant, the two parties are God Almighty. That covenant does not depend on Abraham or his descendants. It depends on two immutable things — God and his word.
19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; 20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
So here is the connection between Jesus as the seal of the New Covenant — our high priest. Hebrews 7:
1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; 2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
He is identifying who Jesus is here:
3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
Melchisedec was Jesus. Abraham gave tithes to Jesus. There is a connection between Christians giving tithes and Abraham, the father of all Israelite Christians.

Thanks for the link to the church website, finding a church that follows the Bible and not the corrupted version of Christianity is very difficult these days. So much degenerate behaviour that seems to be quite acceptable to the corrupt Church but not at all acceptable to God in the Bible, unless it’s a changed judeo Christian version of the Bible and God will punish those who add to, change or take away from his word and punish severely too.
I was lost and had no knowledge but I was given a Bible to read that wasn’t corrupted and I have found God. It is only due to God’s will that I have the chance to be saved. I am holding fast to God’s word and taking no notice of the scoffers.
The Lord is coming.
And He is coming to redeem us.
Just stay righteous and keep preaching the (true) Gospel to fellow Israelites and He shall protect you from all what the Devil is causing.
Stay idolatrous and sinful, and He shall crush you with the soul!
None of this stuff ever made sense to me, thats why I follow the old Celtic/Druid traditions, before the Romans shoved Christianity up their ass.
Celts and Druids were Israelites, and they were not “forcefully” converted to Christianity–they accepted it because many of its precepts were already in their beliefs, especially the Druids, a priesthood who believed in a messiah.
The lore that European pagans were forced to convert to Christianity by the sword makes no sense–some surely were, but not the majority. They would have rebelled and rejected it over time, but they didn’t — and they didn’t because it wasn’t a “foreign” religion but rather the way of their ancestors before they migrated up into Europe.
Jews encourage paganism because it provides no defense against them. Don’t fall for it.
Fair enough, but I’ll stick with the old ways. With all due respect Christianity has’nt provided much of a defense against them. They control our money, our media, our educational systems, our politicians, our health system. Keep on keepin on brother, my best to you.
It’s true that so-called “Christianity” hasn’t provided “much defense against” the Jews, as you rightly pointed out, but that’s because real Christianity has been subverted and replaced by a fake judeo-friendly version that is impotent in the face of the Jewish agenda.
If White Europeans would practice true Christianity, which is indeed racial, and obeyed the commandments, the Jews would have never gotten a foothold in our societies–nor could they have ever gotten any power over us.
Real Christianity is pretty hardcore–there’s no “turning the other cheek” to racial aliens who want to destroy us–that’s not what real Christianity teaches. Christ told his disciples to go get swords to defend the faith and the race.
What protection against the Jews does paganism offer you? Why don’t Jews ever complain about pagans or accuse pagans of being “antisemites”? If Jews don’t call you “antisemites”, it means you aren’t a threat to them, nor do you oppose their agenda in any appreciable way. Something to think about….
But please consider this — Celtic culture is wonderful, we agree. But where did the Celts come from? The Celts were Scythians — as is attested by the original Scottish Declaration of Arbroath in 1320. The Scythians were descendants of the Cimmerians, who were Israelites. The Celts were/are the true Israelites, not these Jewish pretenders. That is why the Celts readily converted to Christianity when they heard of it–Christ was their promised messiah. Look at the symbols and heraldry of the Celts–it’s based on the symbols of the Israelites. That’s where your “pagan” culture comes from:
Renegade Tribune likes to use this same “Straw Man”. But we haven’t had true Christianity for a long, long, long time.
Sure…………………small pockets of true Followers have always existed in History i.e., the remnant. But in reality, “historical” c.hristianity has been the Broad Road — Matthew 7:23
It is ironic that our “critics” are baffled by this reality. If they would just read the bible —
“I know that after my departure, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number, men will rise up and distort the truth to draw away disciples after them.”
“Truth” was attacked and Twisted during the first Century!!!
2000 years later and everyone just assumes the christianity on Tv must be the real deal. LOL
Look, dude, I’m a carpenter, not a college professor, if what you believe works for you, God bless. You guys toss convoluted jargon around and then don’t understand why regular people don’t embrace it. I’m embracing the ways of my ancestors, who took no shit, not some rich fag in the Vatican.
I doubt you will find anyone here who supports any “rich fag in the Vatican”. For the last 1,000 years or more your ancestors were Christians, not pagans. And your pre-Christian ancestors were Israelites who had lost their identity through the ages. How “convoluted” is that concept?
And most of the people here work for a living just like you do–no need to pull the b.s. class card on people who are just trying to open your eyes and heart. I recall that Christ himself was apparently a carpenter just like you.
You post an anti-Christian comment about an article about a Biblical prophet that you know nothing about on a Christian site, and then you get all bent out of shape when people try to help you have a better understanding of what real Christianity is? And then you insist that we follow a “rich fag in the Vatican”? Sounds like you’re the one pushing people’s buttons.
CHRIST IS KING
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:…
Dennis, I politely say to you, to listen to His call. 🙂
When trouble comes–and it will–pray to your pagan gods and see what kind of help they offer you:
“But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah. ”
— Jeremiah 2:28
The giving of tithes today is a difficult proposition, especially for those who adhere to the Kingdom Identity doctrines. There are very few legitimate ministers today who promote that message — and how many of them do you trust enough to give 10% of your gain? And just because some promote that message doesn’t mean they are living the life of a true Christian, as a sincere example for those around them to follow as Sheldon Emry clearly did.
I believe we are seeing the beginning of the end of brick and mortar churches — and most of those that survive will be whores to the Jews and their subversive and ineffectual sermons of the “universal love of Jesus” — a banal message that the Jews have no problem with because it has no teeth and it doesn’t expose the perfidy of the Jews or the identity of true Israel. So how will Israel tithe in the end times?
Hi John 3,
Curious, you wrote — “….we are seeing the beginning of the end of brick and mortar churches….”
You say the “beginning”. I’ve been looking for a Brick and Mortar for over 10 years now.
Where are these bricks and mortars that you believe have the Holy Spirit? I would seriously consider moving. I miss the Fellowship.
I came out of “judeo-christianity” back in 2003. It is my belief that as far as judeo-christianity goes, there hasn’t been a brick and mortar for over 200 years because they all teach OSAS which is absolute heresy. It is actually “another jesus” — 2 Corinthians 11:3-4.
Where is a Church today that rejects OSAS and teaches Jesus’ True plan of Salvation? Not to mention — is teaching Racial Identity as well.
Curious to know. Thanks!
Mr Westwins – try the LaPorte Church of Christ in LaPorte Colorado; that congregation meets your criteria and broadcasts services over the internet and shortwave so you may attend no matter your location. This is the congregation that was pastored by Peter J Peters for over 30 years ; he is gone now, but the legacy lives on and the current administration is trying hard to preach Jesus, baptism and the identity of the True Israel people. Im sure there are others, but I know of this one.

Adding my Thanks, too, to Westwins, Luke and CFT.
There’s a critical aspect of the tithe which many teachers miss, I believe. A tithe was not just meant to be a tenth, but it was meant to be the best tenth. As it says in Hebrews 7:4, Abraham gave the “choicest spoils”.
Earlier in Malachi 3, it talks about bringing offerings of righteousness as a result of purification. Scripture is filled with examples of sacrifices and offerings not being accepted over the condition of the heart. Tithes aren’t about resources, as He promises if we bring the tithe He will provide (Mal 3:10).
If a tithe is about the condition of the heart, and about give my our best, and we give it to Christ, then why should it be limited to a tenth? It is typical of Israel to think, “How can we give God what is due so that it may go well with us?”
What if we set our hearts and minds to His service, giving our whole lives to Him, casting aside the “passions of youth” and all manner of things which waste our time? Let’s give Him our everything and our best for the sake of His glory. Then the true tithe will be fulfilled automatically.
Christ said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. Let Him be our treasure and our heart, focussing on Him in all things.
That makes sense, especially for those of us who now live within a strict monetary system, rather than an agricultural one. Now it’s the IRS that gets your first crop, the first third, but it isn’t voluntary.
After all, what is your “choicest” pay check when they are all the same? How do you give God your “best” dollar? You can’t. So you have to give him the best of yourself and your life, your talents, your heart, as you say. Great point!

Despite our best efforts to warn him against casting unfounded aspersions against commenters here who do not agree with his dispensationalist doctrines, Russ has chosen to ignore those warnings and has recently left comments claiming that certain commenters here are part of some vast “Masonic” conspiracy to thwart his message.
Not only that, Russ recently attempted to leave comments here under another name in a vain and malicious attempt to trick the moderators into approving his own repetitive and divisive comments. Because he was censored, he now believes that those whose comments are approved are part of some sort of “Masonic” conspiracy.
As such, we have no choice but to ban Russ from leaving comments here from now on. We hope that Russ can find the help he needs to address his paranoid delusions — perhaps he should consult a judeo-Christian minster for the answers he seeks — perhaps he can find solace in their Masonic message of the “universal brotherhood of man” that they all preach, as if Christ himself were a Mason.
We also hope that one day the scales will be removed from Russ’s eyes so that he can finally see how he has been an unwitting part of a genuine conspiracy to keep the lost sheep of Israel lost, unaware of who they are or what their destiny is. As we are engaged to gather those sheep rather than scatter them, we have no choice but to send Russ on his merry way.
