    Servant of Jacob's

    Are you calling Yeshua (Christ) the Anti-christ? That is what it seems by your post, or am I misunderstanding something?

    Are you Orthodox by any chance?
  • Servant of Jacob for verse 27
    the servant of Jacob is an ordinary man Messianic of the loins of Judah who has known who the man of perdition is from his first office[was] then removed[was not] returning by smooth words[was again]31 March 2009 without the honour of kingship as he lost the election but promised to bring Peace- he lied.His name/ number is 666 in Hebrew counting-gematria.I have spoken publically about this man who magnifies himself equal to the commander of the host i.e. Jesus Christ-king of the Jews.I believe the last week started from his return; concluding 31 March 2016 which is time[God measures in days-24 hours] times [24 hours] & X 1/2 divided time[God divides into 70 weeks of 7; 1/2 one is 3.5years]=24 x24 x3.5=2016a.d. the one time scale you will understand as 'no man shall know the month day or hour' but 'I will says YHWH' reveal then WHEN [Dan 12,7] at endtime-now.I have been called a 'mental case' for my view but in light of the fact I speak on behalf of a man who says He is the son of God & even YHWH incarnate[I believe Him] I am not so crazy.I am Isaiah 46,11.
    Maranatha, Shalom.
