|This website comprises the Abrahamic Expression of faith, which goes to the Jew and the Gentile, with a Messianic slant. I affirm the fullness of biblical truth, embracing the cross of Calvary. I reject Babylonian paganism in the church and the legalistic excesses of the Messianic Movement. This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My interest in Bible prophecy was instant. My calling came soon afterwards. It is to share this great drama, to stand watching and to glorify my God.|
►We have now reached 44 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Eternal worlds to come."
►Coming soon: Future editions and Sabbath Reports will contain some or all of the following, not necessarily in this order. I have so much exciting material to share:
●The power of standing with Israel and the weakness and failure of not. ●How to "shoot" yourself in the foot. ●Attacks on Bible prophecy. ●Dangerous heresies. ●Eagles, vultures, lions and baboons. ●The arising of the antichrist. ●Prophetic difficulties explained. ●All may be interrupted by any breaking prophetic events of importance.
•Live "Breaking News" tickers - click the button top left, or Here.
●We are in prophetic limbo, with nothing of major prophetic importance on the go right now. But we do have an enormous amount developing in the Middle East and Israel that could break onto the stage at any time. So we will not be complacent! Syria, Iran, Gaza, Hamas and the Palestinians are all waiting in the wings, for their prophetic fame!
●New Australian Prime Minister, a Christian, says he may move their embassy to Jerusalem. Arab states throw a tantrum!
●Germany: Anti-racism rally calls for the destruction of Israel! German bank opposes Israel’s existence. Germany refuses to call Jerusalem, Israel’s capital! (I wonder what spirit)
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.
Edition 108. February 8th 2012
The cursed Interfaith movement
News events and comment.
►The Prophetic Scroll has now reached over 3 million regular visitors and members. It continues to grow exponentially. It is growing the fastest in Asia and the old nations of Eastern Europe. The USA is also seeing fast growth. We have almost no interest from Europe. This ministry has been extremely well received by many churches, with numerous testimonies of churches changing direction as a result. Many inform me that they use excerpts in their sermons.
It's particularly gratifying to see that so many churches have re-aligned themselves with Messianic faith. This ministry is also hated by the traditionalists, but I suppose that's not surprising.
A very special thank you to all the regulars...may you grow in God's grace and blessings. Shalom you all!
●Iran unveils its own brand of laser-guided smart missiles.
●Israeli intelligence says Iran has material for 4 nuclear bombs and seeks delivery systems that can reach the US! Both Israel and the US warn that war with Iran may not be far off. Some say by May.
●Iran warns the world of a coming great event. Spiritual leader, Ayatollah Khamenei says that the "great Satan" (America) and the Israeli Zionists will soon be destroyed. He says that this is a promise from Allah. This was part of a recent address to the youth of Iran.
●Iran's Ahmadinejad has just called for a "New World Order" uniting nations that love "justice, peace and affection" In the same address he slammed Western nations and their cultures and customs. It's worth bearing in mind that when Muslims talk of peace etc. they mean the absence of resistance to Islam! Everything outside of Islam is for war!
●Syria heads closer to the abyss! If you corner a mad rabid dog its very likely to attack you. Their leader, Assad is becoming increasingly pressurised and cornered even by some Muslim nations. As I've said before, this is likely to all go bang before Iran goes bang. (See edition 99 titled Iran and Syria in prophecy.)
●Saudi Arabia has offered to step in and boost oil output if supply is cut off from Iran and Syria. This may well prevent the oil price from going into orbit, but it will not prevent a massive spike in the oil price. All countries have their oil supply from the various sources bound by contract. This will cause chaos in the oil markets of the world. Bear in mind that there is a direct relationship between the oil price and world GDP
●Russia and China veto the UN resolution calling for Syrian leader Assad to step down. This ends the UN resolution. But a sneaky little item that most have missed is this: As Russia did it's thing at the UN, it also prepared a large military Rapid Reaction strike force to be deployed in Syria for Assad's use. China says it will back Russian forces in Syria. This could well be the forerunner to the war in which Damascus is destroyed. Bear in mind that prophecy reveals that Russia and China will be key allies against Israel and the West in WW111.
●Now that the UN has stood in favour of Syria, it will most certainly encourage Israel to go it alone in dealing with Syria and Iran for that matter.
●Interestingly Putin will be back in the driver's seat of Russia in March 2012. Will he be the fateful "Gog" of Ezekiel 38:2? Maybe. We need to watch for anything that identifies Putin with this section of prophecy.
● Abbas to become president of Palestinian interim government in waiting. The UN statehood bid failed as a UN event, but this shows that nothing has failed!
●According to WND.com Iran has laid out legal and religious justification for the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of all Jews worldwide! This well written and researched article is a shocker indeed! While on the page, have a look at the Iran produced video at the bottom of the page titled "The coming is upon us." It shows in no uncertain terms why Islamic conflict with Israel and the Western world is inevitable and near. Here it is: http://www.wnd.com/2012/02/ayatollah-kill-all-jews-annihilate-israel/
The cursed Interfaith movement.
This is an extremely important edition. It will result in the eternal destiny of some being changed.
We are already beyond the dawn of darkness and a nightmare future. Many unsuspecting Christians are being sucked into a seemingly innocent and great movement, all in the name of peace, love, unity, tolerance and coexistence.
The Interfaith movement will be extremely successful. The Bible prophecies it, but it will be with Satan at the helm and will all end in hell.
This movement will become part of the Biblical "false prophet", the sidekick of the antichrist himself. It will become the religious side of the political New World Order, which today has become such a well-used phrase it's become quite acceptable to the majority of people.
Don't try and stop it. The purpose of this edition is to inform you so that you can warn others and "come out from among them" yourselves.
2 Corinthians 6:17-18 "Come out from among them and be separate says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord almighty."
The birth of interfaith.
The Interfaith movement was born in Babylon. The people of pagan mixed religions of that day decided to build a tower right into the presence of God to find peace. "What could be wrong with that," you say? Simple, it was not God's way, so He destroyed it all. God's way is never ever the way of mixture or tolerance with other religions. Satan's way is the way of mixture. God will never allow people to enter His presence that are not His.
Think about this: After the resurrection, our Lord and saviour appeared only to those who were His.
It's very important to understand what Babylon means.
●It represents the destruction of paganism false religion and man's attempt to reach God without going God's way.
●It represents captivity for God's people. This was for the Children if Israel and all of the orthodox churches.
●The word Babylon means confusion. It can also be translated mixture. When you put sugar in coffee it gets confused into, or mixed into the coffee. The word was used originally to indicate the scattering of the people into different languages, so that they could no longer have a pagan based unity.
●Babylon was also a place of rampant homosexuality.
●It represents all that man could do in engineering and construction
●It was the birthplace of the modern banking system and therefore has an association with banking and money controlled by evil people.
So, way back in Genesis we find ungodly mixture being cursed and destroyed by God. Right at the end of the Bible in Revelation 2 we find a church called Pergamos. The word means mixture. This represents the church mixing truth and error. It is strongly condemned. The name Babylon is also associated in the Revelation with the immoral, adultery and whoredom.
"Mystery Babylon" in the Revelation is a reference to religion, but it's the evil religious mixture originating in Nimrod, Semiramis and her son Tammuz. This was the start of mother and child worship and a host of other evil satanic traditions, which were later adopted by Constantine and the Catholic church. This religion is called "the mother of harlots."
In the Revelation we see end-time "Babylon the great" coming to a bitter end under the judgement of God.
It's not surprising then that the Catholic church is at the forefront of the Interfaith movement today.
"Babylon the great" as the great enemy of God
Babylon was destroyed by God because it's people tried to reach God to find peace, but not God's way.
Babylonian paganism again surfaced as Satan's ace trump card to bring down the early church, which up to about 300AD was Messianic in character. Constantine, and then the Catholic church totally changed the entire character of the early church with pure satanic paganism, which still exists in all the orthodox churches, including the Calvinist churches.
Is it surprising then that as we head towards the tribulation period and the second coming, that Babylon is again Satan's tool to bring down the church.
Unity and peace.
Ezekiel 22:26-28 "Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and the unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they've hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them."...Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar, seeing false visions and divining lies for them saying, :"thus says the Lord God," when the Lord had not spoken."
Ezekiel 13:10-11 "Because indeed, because they have seduced My people saying, "peace when there is no peace, and one builds a boundary wall, and they plaster it with untempered mortar - say to those who plaster it with untempered mortar that it will fall. There will be flooding and rain and you, O great hailstones shall fall; and a stormy wind shall tear it down."
In Genesis 11 we see that people came together to build a tower to the heavens, to find God. But they made bricks with asphalt for mortar. That is not a good mixture meaning it will not stand when the storms come.
Genesis 11: 6 " And the Lord said, indeed the people are one and they all have one language and this is what they begin to do: now nothing they propose to do will be withheld from them."
The verse above is often used by the universalists to prove how powerful unity is. They are right, unity is powerful, but the work of this unity was not God's will or way, so He destroyed it.
Can you see how powerful unity is? Just look at the bolded parts of the verse above again!
But shock of all shocks...here's God's way with and for unity.
1 Corinthians 1:10 "Now I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. Verse 13 "Is Christ divided"?
2John 9-11 "Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him." (Nor form a big Interfaith movement with them)
Can you see that from the above two verses unity is exclusively based on the truth of God's word. The only valid unity is among brethren and based on the "doctrine of Christ."
Do NOT take this lightly. We are now at a point where a huge mass of deceived Christian leaders are having their eyes opened by Satan to Interfaith. They have sidelined the cross. They're leading untold innocent masses of people down this road of deception. This movement is gaining in popularity at a phenomenal rate. It will end in hell for a great many.
Some of the religions now at the forefront of the Interfaith movement include: Buddhism, Judaism, many Churches including the Catholics and Anglicans, Pagan Druidism, All offshoots of the New Age movements.
Key players in the worldwide Interfaith movement are The Parliament of World Religions, the United Religious Organisation, the World Council of Churches and The Vatican Interfaith Conference. There are many offshoots of these in the nations of the world.
There is also a fast growing Interfaith identity in the cursed Emergent Church movement. The Emergent Church movement is central in the removal of the cross of Christ and even go so far as to remove crosses form their buildings.
Shockingly, many churches that would not have come anywhere near Interfaith in the past are now supporters.
The great danger of Interfaith is that it will join with any others who have a common cause.
The Interfaith movement will fully participate in the coming creation of a new form of World Council of Churches, which will become the final false prophet movement of the end-times. It may take various forms along the way, but that's where it will end.
The Interfaith movement is the Babylon-founded basis for the New World Order.
Interfaith leaders will join and mix with cults and sects and other churches, but they will never mix and join with true cross-bearing believers.
The new universal religion will be non-sectarian with each maintaining their own character as long as it doesn't come against any others. The overall absolute agenda is to create a new world of unity and peace. A universal world religion will emerge and get stronger. Then there will be neither Christian nor Jew, nor heathen, nor Gentile, but one new great body, with all religions merged into one common purpose with a common political agenda.
According to the Interfaith movement, "true Christian theology is love and solidarity with the oppressed and operating in social justice and equality among all people." Salvation and separation from the world, exclusively through the cross of Christ comes nowhere near what they stand for.
●One new world of universal peace was the objective of Adolf Hitler. It was a noble idea, but as with Babel it was not God's way but Satan's way.
●One new world of universal peace is the way of Islam, but they believe this will only come about when all resistance to Islam is gone and the world becomes fully Islamic.
●One new world of universal peace is the objective of the Interfaith movement, the New Age movement and the World Council of Churches.
The churches involved with Interfaith have Jesus, but it's "another Jesus" They have Christ, but it's Christ without the cross.
The leader of the Anglican Church Rowan Williams, recently became a druid. He was fully inducted into this cult.
The picture below shows Ratzinger talking with Rowan Williams. Inset right: Williams at his inauguration as a druid. Inset left: the previous leader of the Catholic church under a Satanic upside down cross.
Please read the following verses. They're all related to this subject and are very enlightening indeed.
2 Corinthians 6:14 "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
Ephesians 5:11 "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them."
James 4:4 "Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God. Whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God."
Matthew 7:13-14 "Enter by the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction and there are many who go in by it because narrow is the gate and difficult (lit: restrained) is the way which leads to life and few there are that find it.
Hosea 4:6 "My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge."
1John 4:6 "We are of God. He who is of God hears us, and he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error."
1 John 5:4 "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world..."
Acts 2:42 "And they continued steadfastly in the Apostles doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayer."
Revelation 18:4 "And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive her plagues."
Revelation 12:12 "Rejoice of heavens and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time."
Evidence of the cross in your life.
You can say that you're a Christian, but if you really are a true believer you will have the evidence of the cross in your very make up and character.
●The work of the cross is separation unto the living God. The word holiness actually means separation. If so, then unholiness and no cross means you are joined together with all that is of the world and it's god.
So then, if the cross separates between the holy and the unholy, dear fellow believer, let me warn you and tell you what will happen if you get involved with Interfaith. You will sideline the cross of Christ. Not Christ, you'll still call yourself a Christian, but with the cross removed, you will become joined with unholy mixture.
Here's a simple easy little formula: The work of the cross in your life = separation from the world. No work of the cross in your life = joined to the world
With the cross obscured, all manner of evils flourish in your life.
Christians in interfaith are not bringing others up, but being brought down by them.
The erroneous theology of the Interfaith movement is one of love peace and unity outside of the cross. They identify in solidarity with the poor and oppressed, who in their eyes become a political entity. Their call to social justice and equality has to be a political one.
Only the cross brings true equality, peace and justice, but this is inside the kingdom of God.
Of course a believer can be involved in making his world better, but it's only as he is separated unto God by and through the cross and the shed blood of our Lord can he do this effectively without being drawn into the world system by its god.
Those in the Interfaith movement, including the churches, are the true enemies of the cross of Christ.
Galatians 3:13 "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written "cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree."
The above verse is vital. Very simply, our great Lord and saviour became a curse for us on the cross. If you reject the cross of Christ as other religions do, even in all your good works, you are cursed.
Galatians 1:8 "But even if we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed."
Salvation only comes through the cross. The ongoing salvation of the soul comes only through taking up your own cross daily!
On the cross He became a curse for us. No cross and you're under the curse!
The deceptive authority of the Interfaith movement:
This cursed movement is a dangerous deception. The church leaders involved try very hard to generate the impression that they have spiritual authority, while in fact they know nothing of the authority of God, because they have no real fear of the living God.
These evil leaders create the impression that they've been appointed by God to bring peace to the world. When they come together in an organisation like the Interfaith movement they generate collective rebellion and this is passed on to innocent, unsuspecting true Christians.
Collective rebellion with crowd-speak behind it has an illegitimate satanic authority backing it. It feeds off itself creating a great illusion of correctness.
►The Interfaith movement is Satan's church, but he's there camouflaged as a very reverend.
Only the believer who has encountered and been broken and crushed by the cross of Christ and the authority of God's word, has any spiritual authority himself.
●If you've never truly encountered the authority of God, you cannot obey Him.
We need the eyes of our human reasoning put out, before we can enter the presence of God and know His authority. Only then can we really live by faith and not sight. The reasoning of the world leads to hell.
The Interfaith leaders think for God and decide for Him what He should think. They have a worldview based on wishful thinking and a few verses of scripture lifted out of context. The one who has not met or encountered devastation through the cross of Christ, becomes God's counsellor. Have these deluded fools got a surprise coming?
Interfaith ministers are not fit to be God's delegated authorities, because they are not under His authority. True ministers of God are called to represent Him and not substitute His authority with their own.
Only those who've passed from the cross to devastating death and suffering and on to newness of life are recognised by God as His servants. As the cross breaks us it separates us from the dictates of the world, the flesh and the demonic. It also separates us from the dictates of the crowd-speak and the opinions of the masses.
Unless a person has been broken by God he cannot release the Spirit of God and the aroma of God.
To speak for or represent God is a most fearful thing. It's too wonderful and too awesome for us to touch. "We must fear speaking for God as we fear hell itself." "We must speak for God in fear and trembling." said Watchman Nee.
Those who seek to exercise authority should not be given it by anyone.
You absolutely can never interfere with the veracity of the scriptures if you have met our Lord and His authority.
Interfaith on the personal level.
You don't need to join a movement to be part of interfaith. The principles of the Interfaith movement are right in the heart of a growing number of Christians.
I personally know many believers who were once strong in the Lord, adhering to the old faith, who now believe that there are many roads to heaven. They believe that a loving God would never send anyone to hell and all religions are equally valid.
I know some who have now embraced interfaith in their hearts. Their personal lives have become a growing mess. Their lives, instead of getting better are now a disaster.
The tragedy is that these believers have been led astray by deceived leaders.
1Timothy 4:1-2 "Now the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy , having their own conscience seared with a hot iron."
1Timothy 6:3-4 "If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ and to the doctrine which is according to godliness, he is proud knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy strife, reviling and evil suspicions,"
Anti Semitism in the Interfaith movement:
How about this for a common thread:
●Satan tried to kill the Jews as they left Egypt.
●He tried again to prevent Messiah from coming by killing all the young Jewish boys.
●He tried again using the Catholic leaders in the inquisitions throughout the dark ages.
●He tried again using Hitler.
●Now the Bible predicts that he will try again using the Interfaith movement in conjunction with New Age and one world efforts.
The Interfaith movement, by its very nature and definitions has to be a full supporter of replacement theology.
The very existence of a Jewish state can't fit into their goals. God has declared very clearly how He will use Israel, the Jews and Jerusalem in these last days to bring about the destruction of the world powers and then bring back our Messiah.
The Interfaith movement will never accept any of this. They are building world peace their way.
Replacement theology is the root of replacement reality and will lead to a number of great wars and conflicts in which the Jewish people will go through extreme persecution again. God will use this time to bring them to salvation.
You can't stand with Christ in doctrine and with Satan in action and principle. How terribly evil to presume to be doing the Lord's work while perfectly fulfilling Satan's plans. .
Christian Zionists (Those that support God's plan for the Jew and Israel) will ultimately become the enemies of the church joined with the world. They are already the enemies of the Interfaith movement.
Jews out there, please know that the Interfaith movement are wolves in sheep's clothing. They will befriend you, so that you can join them. Ultimately they will be part of the cause of a 2nd Holocaust!
Jews out there, please know that Zionist Christians and Messianic believers are you true real friends. We may be a bit odd and strange, but we love you, and we want nothing from you, except for you to know the truth that you Jewish Messiah is our Jewish Messiah and He will soon do a spectacular work in your midst. Yes He will. He is already starting to lift the veil of spiritual blindness that's been upon you for so long.
Jews out there, please know that you will soon be our brothers and sisters in Messiah.
Change the Bible to suit yourself:
Today the authority of God contained in the Bible itself is being changed and re-written to suit the whims of the world. The NIV was at the forefront of this and is regarded by many, including myself as a counterfeit Bible, with over 66000 errors and omissions all with a constant theme, which is undermine the deity of Christ.
But today there are a lot more Bibles being produced that are just as dangerous and blasphemous.
The Wycliffe Bible Translators, and an organisation called the Summer Institute of Linguistics and Frontiers have recently been producing new translations of the Bible with all terms removed that may be offensive to Muslims.
Some examples include the removal of God as Father, Jesus as the Son of God and many such things.
That's right, in our postmodern world we now have Muslim-friendly Bibles, all created in America.
But can you see why this is so important to the devil. It paves the way for a common world religion where all are equally valid.
Of course you know what the Bible says about anyone who changes, adds to or removes anything from the original Bible texts. They are cursed by God. If you don't believe me go and look it up!
The Interfaith movement can only bring peace to the world by denying the Bible. The Bible declares that a monstrous series of wars are on the doorstep. Two thirds of the world's population will be destroyed. Our Lord and saviour returns to this earth as the Lion of the tribe of Judah and as a divine warrior who will remove every single unsaved person from the world. Then He sets up His Kingdom of universal peace.
A message to church leaders:
You have an enormous responsibility. That goes without saying. Let me warn you that the great deceptions, the great apostasy, the great falling away of many believers in these days, doesn't occur in a vacuum. It's the leaders who lead the flock. Many church leaders have regressed from a shepherd to a wolf to a pure swine. Will you be one of them? Will you lead your flock to be spineless lukewarm traditionalists or will you lead your flock to be on fire for our Lord?
1Samuel 15:23 "For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he also has rejected you from being king.
Matthew 24:11 "Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many and because lawlessness will abound the love of many will grow cold."
The mass murdering leaders of the Catholic church led all those millions into the dark age back then. Right now we're seeing a revival of darkness and it's caused by many leaders.
Praise the Lord for the many who are doing just fine and the many who are being enlightened to the darkness as we go forward.
Praise the Lord for the many who are now becoming part of the "great restoration"!
Satan's aim is to create a universal religion without the cross of Christ.
►The central aim of the Interfaith movement is to bring peace to the earth without the Prince of Peace.
This huge satanically driven and led organisation will not bring peace. They will try, but then Satan will reveal his colours and turn it all into the most terrible series of wars and destruction.
It is Satan's ace trump card and will lead a great many people right into his everlasting dammed arms.
I sense that some reading this, will cast aside the cross, to make way for interfaith and on their way to eternal damnation, will grab violently and ferociously for that cross that they've cast aside, only to be caught up in a vortex so strong they will never get out.
My dear reader, If you are a true believer, don't even entertain this cursed Interfaith movement for a minute. It will gradually lead you to a Christless eternity. If you are a true believer contemplating the Interfaith movement, you need the shock of this verse:
Hebrews 6:4-5 "For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame."
Can you see it? Will you heed the warning? Sorry, you can't crucify Christ twice. If you reject the cross, which you have received once, you are doomed. It's impossible to be twice saved. This isn't referring to the backslider, but to the one who has rejected the cross and God's salvation which he had in his heart. "Joel, you might be wrong about that" you say. Do you want to gamble your eternity on a verse like this?!!!!!
Those in the Interfaith movement are Christians against God. They are against the cross of Christ. They are against God's plans for the Jews, they are against God's word.
If Interfaith is legitimate, the cross of Christ was meaningless!
Don't be an idiot. The Interfaith movement wants your soul! That is the underlying desire of the devil working in this cursed movement.
Revelation 3:11 "Behold I come quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown."
1 Peter 5:8 "Be sober, be vigilant, because you adversary the devil walk about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour."
Here's an woodcut done by Gustav Dore depicting the events surrounding the resurrection.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
