What we are seeing today is the beginning of the fall of Babylon (Jezebel) and the rise of the nation of the Antichrist, which is the spirit of Islam (Ishmael), the flesh that the spirit of Antichrist will indwell. We know this by a deep study of Genesis 21.
Genesis 21:8-20 Hagar and Ishmael Sent Away
8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast. 9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, 10 and she said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.”
11 The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned his son. 12 But God said to him, “Do not be so distressed about the boy and your slave woman. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspringwill be reckoned. 13 I will make the son of the slave into a nation also, because he is your offspring.”
14 Early the next morning Abraham took some food and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar. He set them on her shoulders and then sent her off with the boy. She went on her way and wandered in the Desert of Beersheba.
15 When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes. 16 Then she went off and sat down about a bowshot away, for she thought, “I cannot watch the boy die.” And as she sat there, she began to sob.
17 God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. 18 Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.”
19 Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. So she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink.
20 God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the desert and became an archer. 21 While he was living in the Desert of Paran, his mother got a wife for him from Egypt.
In verses 8-9, Sara saw Ishmael mocking. It was this that caused he and his mother, Hagar, to be cast out.
This was the spirit that drove them away from Abraham. Look at the curse attached to this spirit. It drove them away from the bloodline of Christ.
But when you first look at this you think that Sara is being a bit harsh. Kids will be kids, right? What you have to understand here is that Isaac is just a baby between 2-3 years old and Ishmael is between 14-16 years old. It is not natural for a teenager to be mocking a baby. There is a maliciousness to this.
verb (used with object)
to attack or treat with ridicule, contempt, or derision.
to ridicule by mimicry of action or speech; mimic derisively.
to mimic, imitate, or counterfeit.
verb (used without object)
to use ridicule or derision; scoff; jeer (often followed by at).
a contemptuous or derisive imitative action or speech; mockery or derision.
something mocked or derided; an object of derision.
The Hebrew word for mocking here is metsachcheq. It implies “always mocking.”
Therefore, this was not something that happened just this one time. Mocking indicates an evil spirit. This was an attack on the anointing of Isaac. Remember it was through Isaac’s descendants that Christ was born. Therefore, Ishmael was mocking the seed of Christ by mocking Isaac.
Family Tree: Isaac & Rebekeh=Jacob & Leah=Judah>David> Jesus.
God was with Sara in this although it appears Ishamel’s actions were insignificant and that Sara did a cruel act, the Spirit of God confirms the opposite here and we are given proof of this in Genesis 21:12 (above). This passage illustrates perfectly Jesus v/s Antichrist and Spirit v/s Flesh.
Jezebel comes before Antichrist to prepare the way but will actually be destroyed by Antichrist before his rule.
Revelation 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
The nation of the Ishmaelites will birth Antichrist. This is what is described in Revelation 12, Jezebel is the woman…the ‘devour her child’ part means ‘possesses him’ (descendant of Ishmael) with the spirit of Antichrist.
We see this mocking again in II Kings.
II Kings 2:23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here, baldy!”
The timeline of Daniel 7 is actually spelled out in II Kings 2.
The first part of the chapter is prophetic of the return of the spirit of Elijah as one of the two witnesses at the mid-tribulation mark in Revelation 11:3 And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.
2 Kings 2
Elijah Taken Up to Heaven
2 When the Lord was about to take Elijah up to heaven in a whirlwind, Elijah and Elisha were on their way from Gilgal. 2 Elijah said to Elisha, “Stay here; the Lord has sent me to Bethel.”
But Elisha said, “As surely as the Lord lives and as you live, I will not leave you.” So they went down to Bethel.
3 The company of the prophets at Bethel came out to Elisha and asked, “Do you know that the Lord is going to take your master from you today?”
“Yes, I know,” Elisha replied, “so be quiet.”
4 Then Elijah said to him, “Stay here, Elisha; the Lord has sent me to Jericho.”
And he replied, “As surely as the Lord lives and as you live, I will not leave you.” So they went to Jericho.
5 The company of the prophets at Jericho went up to Elisha and asked him, “Do you know that the Lord is going to take your master from you today?”
“Yes, I know,” he replied, “so be quiet.”
6 Then Elijah said to him, “Stay here; the Lord has sent me to the Jordan.”
And he replied, “As surely as the Lord lives and as you live, I will not leave you.” So the two of them walked on.
7 Fifty men from the company of the prophets went and stood at a distance, facing the place where Elijah and Elisha had stopped at the Jordan. 8 Elijah took his cloak, rolled it up and struck the water with it. The water divided to the right and to the left, and the two of them crossed over on dry ground.
9 When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, “Tell me, what can I do for you before I am taken from you?”
“Let me inherit a double portion of your spirit,” Elisha replied.
10 “You have asked a difficult thing,” Elijah said, “yet if you see me when I am taken from you, it will be yours—otherwise, it will not.”
11 As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind. 12 Elisha saw this and cried out, “My father! My father! The chariots and horsemen of Israel!” And Elisha saw him no more. Then he took hold of his garment and tore it in two.
13 Elisha then picked up Elijah’s cloak that had fallen from him and went back and stood on the bank of the Jordan. 14 He took the cloak that had fallen from Elijah and struck the water with it. “Where now is the Lord, the God of Elijah?” he asked. When he struck the water, it divided to the right and to the left, and he crossed over.
Verse 8 is prophetic of the 12,000 sealed in Revelation 7.
Verse 17 shows this is the timing of the beginning of persecution of the Church by the mocking spirit of Ishmael (Islam). This is the rise of the Ishmaelites (the nation of Islam).
Verse 11 indicates the timing of the pouring out of the double portion of the Holy Spirit (spirit of Elijah). This will cause a split prophetically detailed by the separating of the water. This division is manifesting as the fruit of the covid vaccines. The USA, specifically Donald Trump, was who “fast tracked” these vaccines to get them to the public and world. (See Daniel 7, the Lion is Jezebel and represents the USA. The two wings that were ‘ripped off’ were the Democrat AND Republican parties. I predict Trump will be reestablished as a key player in the 7 year peace treaty at some point in the near future. (And I suspect he is the Anointed One of Daniel 9.) At the 3 1/2 year mark, something will happen and the treaty will fail. What will follow will be literal hell on earth.
The dividing of the waters is the falling away…the division of the nation and also the fall of Babylon follows…the right and left are symbolic of east and west…this indicates the rise of the next ruling power.
The waters are divided 5 times in the Bible. We are living out II Kings 2 right now.
A double portion of The Holy Spirit is now being poured!!!
The nation is dividing, do not turn to the right or the left…those who have the Spirit of God, (which is the Holy Spirit) will cross over on dry land!!
15 The company of the prophets from Jericho, who were watching, said, “The spirit of Elijah is resting on Elisha.” And they went to meet him and bowed to the ground before him. 16 “Look,” they said, “we your servants have fifty able men. Let them go and look for your master. Perhaps the Spirit of the Lord has picked him up and set him down on some mountain or in some valley.”
“No,” Elisha replied, “do not send them.”
17 But they persisted until he was too embarrassed to refuse. So he said, “Send them.” And they sent fifty men, who searched for three days but did not find him. 18 When they returned to Elisha, who was staying in Jericho, he said to them, “Didn’t I tell you not to go?”
Healing of the Water
19 The people of the city said to Elisha, “Look, our lord, this town is well situated, as you can see, but the water is bad and the land is unproductive.”
20 “Bring me a new bowl,” he said, “and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him.
21 Then he went out to the spring and threw the salt into it, saying, “This is what the Lord says: ‘I have healed this water. Never again will it cause death or make the land unproductive.’” 22 And the water has remained pure to this day, according to the word Elisha had spoken.
Elisha Is Jeered (Mocked)
23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered* at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here, baldy!” 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys. 25 And he went on to Mount Carmel and from there returned to Samaria. *The mocking spirit. Notice it comes twice as does Babylon is fallen. The animals (bears) symbolize the nations that reign for 42 months (3 1/2 years) of the tribulation, etc. See also Daniel 7:5.)
Mount Carmel is where Elijah and Jezebel had their battle…it’s symbolic of the fall of Jezebel and Baal’s prophets. Following this, Antichrist will sit in the temple and declare himself God (the abomination that causes desolation in Daniel 9:27). This will lead us into Judgement Day.
See Acts 19 on how to receive the Holy Spirit. It is your only ‘escape’ for what’s coming…
