The Antichrist Star Rises

Creator Peter Beck stands next to his "Humanity Star"


It's just a three-foot wide geodesic sphere made of carbon fiber and reflective materials—more or less a stunt, but what Peter Beck's "Humanity Star" symbolizes is so much more.  This artificial star ascended into the heavens aboard an Electron rocket launched from New Zealand on January 21st and is now circling the earth once every 93 minutes.  The Humanity Star apparently serves no other purpose than as a testimony to the "greatness" of mankind and its unwavering drive to reach Heaven without God and to defy His loving boundaries.

Of course there is nothing inherently wrong with rockets or satellites, but what this particular project shows is that mankind, just as in the days of the Tower of Babel, is seeking to reach Heaven in a sinful, godless state.  Mankind's new focus is unity and technological "progress" regardless of the moral and spiritual consequences and it will take nothing less than seven years of judgement for the world to finally return to its senses—and to return to the God who made it.

In the meantime, we can catch a glimpse of a spiritual struggle playing out behind the scenes because these things are a testimony to God's absolute sovereignty.  These are symbols of the truth that "as in Heaven, so on earth."

How you have fallen from heaven,
   morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
   you who once laid low the nations!
You said in your heart,
   'I will ascend to the heavens;
I will raise my throne
   above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
   on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon.
I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
   I will make myself like the Most High.'
But you are brought down to the realm of the dead,
   to the depths of the pit.

Those who see you stare at you,
   they ponder your fate:
'Is this the man who shook the earth
   and made kingdoms tremble,
the man who made the world a wilderness,
   who overthrew its cities
and would not let his captives go home?'
- Isaiah 14:12–17


Since the beginning of Creation the wayward cherub Lucifer (aka Satan) has sought to supplant God's rightful rule on earth and in the heavens through the use of willing human intermediaries, and to a certain extent he has been successful.  He swindled Adam and Eve out of their inherent right to rule as sons and daughters of God and quickly brought humanity under his dominion.  Since then he has dominated the kingdoms of the world (Matt. 4:8–9; Jn. 14:30).

Yet at the Cross his dominion suffered a mortal wound and his de facto rule came crumbling down because all of those "born of God" (Christians / Believers) were freed from his clutches (1 Jn. 5:18) and he was cast out (Jn. 12:31).


Yet his being "cast out" is an "already but not yet" kind of thing.  He still has access to Heaven and is still trying to accuse and bring the world back under his control, but his hold on those who now trust in Christ has been entirely destroyed and soon and very soon he will be literally cast out of the heavenlies once and for all:

Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.  But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.  The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

'Now have come the salvation and the power
   and the kingdom of our God,
   and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
   who accuses them before our God day and night,
   has been hurled down.
They triumphed over him
   by the blood of the Lamb
   and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
   as to shrink from death.
Therefore rejoice, you heavens
   and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
   because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
   because he knows that his time is short.'
- Revelation 12:7–12


The actual casting out of satan from Heaven is something yet future as described in Revelation 12, but it is a foregone conclusion because of the Cross.  Christ's death on the Cross and subsequent resurrection became an irrevocable down payment on the future resurrection, transformation, and rapture of all believers.  And when we go up, satan comes down.  He knows this very well.

On September 23rd and 24th last year, an astronomical alignment appeared in the sky that perfectly/flawlessly/unmistakably matched the description given in Revelation 12:1–2a.  That passage of Scripture points directly to the nearness of the rapture, because the context is the future birth and rapture of the Church to Heaven (see here, here, and here).  While the alignment is now a fact of history, all speculation as to the timing of the rapture is just that—speculation.  That being said, we can't lose sight of the fact the Church's exit sign has now appeared, which means the rest of Revelation 12 is coming down the pike and fast.


If the Revelation 12 Sign served one purpose above all else, it was to tell us to look up and get ready because we'll be leaving soon according to God's irrevocable promises (Jn. 14:2–3; 1 Thess. 4:16–18; Rev. 3:10; Zeph. 2:1–3; Isa. 26:19–21).

Remember that the Revelation 12 Sign occurred some 9–10 months after Jupiter, representing the male child, entered Virgo's womb.  It was the perfect picture of pregnancy.  Other signs occurred around the same time that mirrored Christ's first advent (see here), which made the picture that much more perfect.

The Humanity Star is a reminder to me that satan is always one step behind God.  The sign God made has already been seen and now, several months later, a fake star—the Antichrist Star—rises into the heavens in preparation for satan's short-lived world resurgence through his puppet, a world ruler who will soon appear called the antichrist (1 Jn. 2:18; 2 Thess. 2:3).  The Humanity Star will orbit the earth for the length of a human pregnancy, de-orbiting and crashing back to earth some nine months later in September or October of this year.

The devil knows his time is short and he knows, better than perhaps most, that the Revelation 12 Sign in September was a big indicator that the clock is quickly counting down.  He'll have one more go at world domination after the Church leaves, but his rule will be brought to a violent end.

You were the seal of perfection,
   full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
You were in Eden,
   the garden of God;
every precious stone adorned you:
   carnelian, chrysolite and emerald,
   topaz, onyx and jasper,
   lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl.
Your settings and mountings were made of gold;
   on the day you were created they were prepared.
You were anointed as a guardian cherub,
   for so I ordained you.
You were on the holy mount of God;
   you walked among the fiery stones.
You were blameless in your ways
   from the day you were created
   till wickedness was found in you.
Through your widespread trade
   you were filled with violence,
   and you sinned.
So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God,
   and I expelled you, guardian cherub,
   from among the fiery stones.
Your heart became proud
   on account of your beauty,
and you corrupted your wisdom
   because of your splendor.
So I threw you to the earth;
   I made a spectacle of you before kings.
By your many sins and dishonest trade
   you have desecrated your sanctuaries.
So I made a fire come out from you,
   and it consumed you,
and I reduced you to ashes on the ground
   in the sight of all who were watching.
All the nations who knew you
   are appalled at you;
you have come to a horrible end
   and will be no more.
- Ezekiel 28:12–19


Soon and very soon we will go to Jesus and the world will turn to satan.  He'll have his dominion back, but only for a few short years.  When that time is up, we'll return with the LORD to execute justice on the usurper:

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.  With justice he judges and wages war.  His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns.  He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.  He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.  The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.  Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations.  'He will rule them with an iron scepter.'  He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.  On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
- Revelation 19:11–16


And after that, he'll be locked away to face an absolutely certain judgment:

And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain.  He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.
- Revelation 20:1–2

    2. Gary, One point I would like to add that I often think we overlook in Revelation. As you point out, soon and very soon, we go to Heaven and Satan will have his dominion back . . . But. We fail to realize the conditions under which he will "enjoy" this period of time is by experiencing the absolute wrath of the Lamb and the Father! It will certainly be horrendous for those who remain who come to a Saving knowledge of Christ through the Kingdom Gospel and most will lose their lives, but this will be no picnic for the Man of Sin or the Son of Perdition. The entire time he is on earth promoting his supremacy, God will be cracking the earth wide open, causing stars to fall on his head, turning water to blood & bitterness and casting volcanoes and meteors into the sea. He will be aware, and so soon will others, he is fighting a force which is merely toying with Him until his time is up. Blessings - Sherry

    5. @Sherry, exactly right. When he does finally get his way, so-to-speak, it will be *while* the wrath of the Lamb is being poured out. He'll get a dying world and only for a short time and only under dire circumstances. He loses.

  2. The Fields of the Wicked are Ripe for the Reapers of the Proud..They've done their work well. Oddly, as they populate their kingdom, they do God a great service. We've borne witness to them all throughout the Ages so they'll have no defense when it's time to round up what's left of them, upon our return, with the Power of Almighty God. It will take nothing less than Jesus and all made like Him to get the job done, because they number in the billions..if not trillions, considering the multiverse..should keep us busy for at least 1k yrs. ..Peace. Love. Joy. Exciting! ;)~

    2. Interesting thoughts. A world to rule here with Christ, but also the heavens. I'm reminded by Paul:

      "Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!" - 1 Cor. 6:3

      Delete
    3. Gary, somebody led me to verse 1 Cor 6:3.. I'm not quite following this... does this mean we, the Church, will be judging over the angels? Or the fallen angels?

      Delete
    4. Dear Suzanne, you're absolutely right: not only will the church judge angels but the WORLD (verse 2)! You see, we will not only watch God to judge or just some witness in the court but be judges ourselves (Daniel 7:10). MARANATHA!

      Delete
    5. ..Yes Suzanne. The Angels in Heaven will Serve us, and the fallen angels will Bow Low before us, as we'll be like Him, undistinguishable to them. Think Big, do not doubt Him, and He will reveal His Truth, to whatever capacity our ability to Believe Him will allow. That Truth, is personal in many cases, not necessarily always for everyone, because not everyone..is able to Believe..BIG! ..So remember, no matter how BIG we Believe, or how BIG we Think..It Is Written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that..Love Him..Imagine that! WOW! :)

      Delete
    6. @Suzanne, the implications of the verse are astounding. In any case, I don't think the Bible specifies if we judge the good angels and the bad ones, or just the bad ones, but I've always assumed it will be the bad ones since it was they who have interfered in our God-given dominion and are the ones who have rebelled against God.

    8. The angels judged in 1 Cor 6:3 means also to rule and reign. In reading notes by John MacArthur he points to 2 Peter 2:4 and Jude 6 as God himself judging the fallen angels.
      I see that the fallen angels Satan are locked in the pit during the millennium. Those in the millennium are not re-generated people and by the end of this time period there will be those who do not believe. Satan is released to deceive along with his minions as he is not omnipresent and all of this is to show the sinfulness of man as they have been living in a perfect environment.

      Delete
    9. Cathi, the millennium will START with ONLY regenerated ("born again") people, see the judgement of the living in Matthew 25. But as the FLESH is still struggling with the Spirit this will be the (only) temptation to sin. Satan is bound until the end of the era and the 'world' is ruled by Christ and his glorified saints so there's in fact just the FLESH making people sin. Thats the reason why there will be death penalty and daily executions. Sounds harsh but is scriptural (Psalm 101:8 / Isaiah 65:20 + 66:24 etc). That will belong to our duties by the way then to execute these. But you're right, towards the end of the 1,000 years period Satan will have a greater chance to stir up final battle as the people seem to have forgotten their first love again like the church of Ephesus did...

      Delete
    10. Annabel.. It may be there'll be no need to execute, as they'll probably just die, when brought before those that Judge, from their own attempt to deceive, as happened before Peter..

      Delete
    11. Hi Annabel, yes, thanks for correcting me about the entrance to the millennium. I did not make that clear but I meant that believers only enter and later on not all believe. But, they all are unregenerated in that they were not raptured or had died.

      Delete
    12. Uncle Jimmy - I don't see this happening that they will just die like I think you are referring to Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5:1-11.
      This was during the NT and was never repeated again that I know of. It was to show the seriousness of lying against the Holy Spirit. I don't understand all this, but in any case, this millennial period I believe is handled differently.

      Delete
    13. Hi Cathi, you may be interested in Ananias and Sapphira, in-depth study shows that they were not Christians, in fact they were lying to God in order to make a mockery of God. Acts always introduces characters by saying "There was a certain believer..." to indicate they are Christians or "There was a certain man..." to indicate they are not Christians. In the case of A and S they were introduced as nonbelievers.

      They are also a picture that grace + law = death:

      Ananias = "hanania" = "the grace of God"
      Sapphira = "sapphire" is a picture of the stones on the urim and thummin - the breastplate worn by the old testament priests ministering under law. Paul talks about the "ministry of death that was written on stone"...also referring to the 10 commandments, the law that Jesus fulfilled. "For Christ is the end of the law to them who believe" in Jesus' finished work!

      Mix hananiah/grace and sapphire/law and it results in death. In the same way that A and S were not Christians, (Christians are not subject to God's wrath as the Bible says), it is also a picture that those who mix the old and new covenant do not know God.

      This is a brilliant teaching that I heard from my pastor Joseph Prince out of Singapore.

      God bless you.

    14. Cathi G.. Very good point Cathi! :) And! Steve oh! God bless you both!

    15. Steve Oh, I have not read about A & S being unbelievers. I think I have to respectfully disagree with your pastor. They were in the church and publicly said they would give all their proceeds from selling their property at some point. But, they didn't bring that amount to the Apostles feet and led them to think they had. They lied. It was their money to do as they will, but they instead lied about it. So, it was sin that caused them to fall dead. They sinned against the Holy Spirit. Which if they were unbelievers, wouldn't make sense. In looking up notes by John MacArthur just now, he believes they were filled with the Holy Spirit. They were hypocritical. Death can be the consequence of sin (1 Cor 11:30-32, 1 John 5:16. In other resources, the context is about believers and it was a lesson for them.

    16. We see through a glass darkly so I'll wait to find out (after the rapture) what our roles will during the Millennium era exactly be. I find the idea of judging people kind of wild. I truly believe that it is a role/task that only belongs to the Lord even in the Millennium era. Regarding the Great White Throne Judgment, I believe so that it will be solely the Lord's act! Also, there's a promise to the tribulation believers that they'll rule with Christ in the Millennium, so... we'll see what the Church, His royal priesthood will do.

  3. And at 120 days from the Rev 12 Sign—this star serves as a reminder that we are on plotted course.

    Replies
    1. Yes, perfect timing!

      Delete
    2. The "plotted course" is given to us in Daniel 9:2 and Daniel 9:24 as "70 years" that began on March 21, 1948 OR May 14, 1948 that count out in "70 years". Now do the simple math!

      Also lets not forget that in Genesis 6:3 God said He would strive with man only 120 Jubilee cycles of 50 years totaling 6000 years that SHOULD HAVE ENDED on March 21, 2000.

      Why didn't it? Remember King Hezekiah of the "seed of Jesse/David" had NOT fathered a 'SON' to continue his line to Yeshua, SO God returned backwards the ecliptic or path of the sun 18 years, fulfilling 2 signs from 2 Kings 19:29-31 of '3 years' and extended King Hezekiah's life '15 years' in 2 Kings 20:6-10 who then did father a son who did reign after his death.

      These "returning 18 years of Hezekiah" started returning on March 22, 2000 and count out as a second witness to Daniel 9:24! Lest we forget Ezekiel laid on his side 390 days, as a 'day for a year' for the sins of the House of Israel, Ezekiel 4:3-5. They did not repent so God extended 7x or 2730 years punishment on them, that began in the 14th year of Hezekiah's reign in 712 BCE and counts out in 2018! Yes indeed, the days are short and time is fleeting.

    8. Hi Peahummer I just spent the last hour studying 2 Kings 19-20 and Ezekiel 4 in comparison with Daniel 9. I am blown away!!! Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and revelation here. I appreciate you as an elder brother who has gone before, you have 34 years on me! How cool that you saw Israel form as a nation. I believe in faith that we will experience the rapture. God is wonderful and His knowledge and wisdom are unsearchable!

      I have been making notes in my Bible for the one(s) that I've asked God about who will find it once I am harpazo'd and will become tribulation saints. I hope you don't mind if I added your notes in.

      Please share anything else you feel comfortable sharing. Is there significance to the sundial moving back 10 steps in 2 Kings 20:10? Why is it 10 steps?

    10. Correct Gary, Let's not forget that there are NO references other than to a "time, time and dividing of time" in the Old Testament, recorded in Daniel 7:25 and Daniel 12:7. It is also found in Revelation 12:14 but HAVE YOU NOTICED it is referring to the SAME EVENT in Revelation 12:6 that references 1260 days?

      Now CHECK THIS OUT, the same event of the antichrist being given charge of the saints in the original, for a "time, time and dividing of time" in Daniel 7:25 is referenced as "42 months" in Revelation 13:5.

      In other words the 1260 days, and 42 months ARE NOT timing events still future but are a "time, time and dividing of time" that should count out sometime between today and March 21 to May 14, 2018?

      What has happened in the past 40 years is that the "prophecy gurus" have never let go of Sir Robert Anderson's book, 'The Coming Prince' and his '483 years + 7 yet future years' prophecy of 490 years, even though he died 35 years BEFORE Israel declared statehood!

      The sad fact is English Bibles edited it into there commentary and there readers NOT STUDYING to show themselves to be approved believed what they read and were told and today are looking at a "short time" that could be at its most 106 days! Thank you, PH

    12. So Peahummer - I have a story for you. Yesterday while I was sitting in a bookstore called Chapters that we have her in Chapters, studying Daniel 9 (when I posted the message that is 4 messages above this one).

      God hilighted a lady beside me and said that He wants me to tell her about Jesus. It is 15 minutes to close and I told Jesus, no way there is not enough time. I struck up a conversation with her and told her the gospel - same as in my YouTube video about salvation. She said her aunt was "religious" and keeps talking about "the 70 weeks about something or other". I show her that I'm studying Daniel 9 and I'm studying this exact thing!

      Long story short, the Lord brought salvation and I prayed the prayer of salvation with her in the parking lot. I have never seen the Lord work so quickly before, He was an expert surgeon, He was in and out precisely like a scalpel. We were standing there in the parking lot and tears streamed down her face as God absolutely rocked her. I was emotional as well.

      I invited her to church this morning but she mentioned her aunt again and she didn't come to my church, but she said she would call her aunt this morning and let her know what God has done.

      God is so wonderful. I love how He leads us so that when it is time to witness, we witness and He never fails.

      God bless you.

    13. Wow Steve Oh!

  4. Stopping for just one minute, if we were to say, "LORD, tarry please, come in your good time" -- that in the meantime we may be diligent in tending His vineyard; I believe we would find opportunity in the opening of space as an industry and place to work and live in. Wherever men travel, so too does the LORD. And wherever they travel there we too should be found.

    These generations would need shepherds (pastors) and all those who are called to ministry service. I for one would not mind ministering to these adventurous people.

    As for this launch, it is the product of a Kiwi developer entering the space race and was announced some time ago. Packing the rocket with this payload grabs headlines and will be in orbit for anywhere from a month to a few months. It strikes me as a way of getting attention in a media world dominated by far larger players.

    The sad truth is that New Zealand is on track as one of the TOP unchurched nations on the planet. Suicide rates among youth (especially Maori) are a terrible tragedy. These trends have not been lost on church planters who are doing good work on the ground there. But NZ is a nation of under 5-million. That number pales in comparison to the number of hearts and minds absorbed in the digital realm of gaming and pornography and instant entertainment available (for the most part) in the palm of our hands every hour of every day.

    This is the god that has been lifted up beyond the stars directly into the hearts and minds of everyone from small children to our senior citizens. Every fantasy instantly satiated with a tap and a gesture held in darkness, the secret spaces we retreat into where no one can see. For my money, the beast that rises from the earth is that which we call AI and technology perverted.

    I applaud efforts at exploration and science, especially for the purpose of glorifying G-d. (Reference Michael Faraday) We are created to be artists and engineers who are made in the image of our Holy Creator. Whatever we do for the sake of growth, learning and the betterment of mankind is an endeavour I think worth pursuing as I believe that such efforts are part of our calling through the Greatest Commandment.

    To marvel and wonder at His creation is a form of worship. It's all a matter of the heart. I think that Peter Beck has good intentions from what I have read about him. I could only hope that the Lord has, or will soon, reveal Himself in a powerful and personal way that Peter pushes the boundaries of space to the Glory of G-d.

    Grace and peace to you,


    Pastor Rich

    3. Dear Richard, I will always remember not having responded to a pen-friend letter from Christchurch (!!) NZ as a teenage because the girl would address me with "God bless you"... I wanted to emigrate to NZ once ago but that was not Gods plan obviously. I hesitated to answer this girl because I was so lost myself at that time and could not stand any "Christian hypocrisy". I have often thought of her meanwhile and prayed she was truly saved as we never met in real life and I even rejected her first letter, I don't even remember her name. That was my only NZ-experience so far... Blessings to you! :)

    4. You are largely correct in some of your summation on NZ Rich. Many years ago in our little town, we had the highest rate of suicide in the entire country. My friends were dropping like flies. So we took our authority, went into overtime with spiritual warfare, held local 'suicide dramas' through the youth programmes and ultimately saw the local witches/warlock coven drop in its membership by around 90% (most of them moving down South), and the suicide rate drop to 0 over a period of around 5 years. And herein lies the problem. The Maori people in NZ dwell significantly in ancestral worship, bringing significant curses to the land. However those Maori that are my brothers and sisters in Christ have spiritual authority like you wouldn't believe. It would be great if people on the forum prayed for a real revival among the Maori people and that they would get stuck into the blasphemous spirits that rule this land. God bless Aotearoa!

      just a p.s. - don't disparage the NZ rocket story too much. The reason why it was followed so closely as it was the fastest rocket production that has been successful in modern history, and the cheapest in the world for payload into orbit. I must admit chuckling however when I read the 'humanity star' comments in the NZHerald and thought that Matt at DailyCrow would have a field day with it.

    5. @Ryan, I have been following news of NZ since 2011 and had hoped that we would have moved there by now. My hope was (and still is) that we would be able to plant in Christchurch or the Greater Canterbury Region or perhaps Southland. Along the way I became an All Blacks fan and ditched American football for Rugby. I also have tried to learn about the Maori and use Maori names in my computer networks. My iPhone is "Irirangi-taumata" and Maori is a language I would very much enjoy learning if we did come to Aotearoa.

      I agree that we should not disparage the New Zealand rocket story too much. That is the reason why I posted my original message. I had originally read on the project in the NZ Herald too.

      Somewhere in my documentation I have statistics from Pew on un-churched populations in Oceania. I really should dig them up again. But if you know anyone looking for a pastor around your parts, let me know eh?! (Assuming you're living in NZ now)

  5. I highly recommend a movie about a Maori family called "Once Were Warriors." I saw it years ago and it is unforgettable.

    1. I will check it out. Thanks! "Whale Rider" was an interesting film as well.

      I also see parallels between the First Nations and the Maori. Colonial rule, for lack of a better phrase, has left (and is) a fresh mark in both of their cases. We are hopeful on the Trudeau government to make fresh outreach initiatives and that the people of the First Nations raise up leaders to engage Ottawa and the Provinces on the needs and future of their people.

      This is an area we have been praying about and are hopeful to be impactful for.
