Among those who await end times events, it is surprising how many of those events are inventions of man’s mind.
But–in some cases, CENTURIES of false teachings–(particularly among the church folk) and STORIES of what will happen during the end times prove more popular than the accounts from God’s Word (which is TRUE and is what WILL happen).
There are a number of false teachings which circulate and bubble among the ignorant.
Therefore, we list a few of the imaginary events which will NOT take place as taught because these events are INVENTIONS BY MEN.
1- There will be a GREAT REVIVAL during the end times.
There will NOT be.
Instead of revival, God’s Word promises REBELLION AGAINST GOD AND HIS ANOINTED (Jesus Christ).
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”
The ONLY ‘revival’ promised in God’s Word is the nearly-universal worship of Satan by all those who dwell upon the earth.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
REBELLION, NOT REVIVAL.
The reader can see the pieces of this puzzle being moved into place even today.
2- EZEKIEL 38 and 39 describe the Battle of Armageddon–NOT some fictitious conflict before then.
The 38th and 39th chapters of Ezekiel describe a conflict which is ANOTHER VIEW OF THE Battle of Armageddon.
HOWEVER, there are false teachers which have taught that the conflict in Ezekiel 38 and 39 is a DIFFERENT battle altogether–supposedly, YEARS before the Battle of Armageddon.
There are SEVERAL WAYS to know that Ezekiel 38 and 39 are referring to Armageddon.
HOWEVER, most men are NOT interested in what God’s Word has to say on ANY subject.
“And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD. And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.”

strong>3- One of the world leaders will suffer a deadly head wound.
This story is the purest fiction.
It is a COUNTRY which APPEARS to be crushed by its supposed enemies, NOT a leader.
The Word of God speaks of the coming man of sin (false prophet, false Messiah).
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
It is revealing that the ‘beast’ of Revelation 13:14 had a wound “by a sword.”
“And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
‘The sword’ or ‘a sword’ is OFTEN used in God’s Word as a way of writing, “WAR.”
So, the beast (which is an end times COUNTRY) APPEARS to suffer a grievous wound by a war (real or imagined).
There are MANY, MANY more end times events which will NOT happen as foretold by MAN.
God willing, we will address more of them in a future article.
DOES the reader have any end times events he initially believed because they were told to him by a ‘trusted’ source?
It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
