Studying God's Word in these last days sure is exciting?
Here we are, present when many Biblical prophecies are coming to pass!
The prophets like
Ezekiel and Daniel and all the disciples of Christ
wanted to know what it would be like in our day,
in the final generation,
the generation of the fig tree which was planted in 1948,
the first born of whom are nearly 70.
Do you realize
how blessed we are that our Father saved you and me to be born now, to witness the
birth of a new age?
At this time, 6,000 years since the creation of the individual man (Adam) and his wife (Eve), i.e. The two eighth day individuals God formed, through which their descendant Jesus Christ (God in the Flesh) would be born, also of flesh and blood, in order for God to make it possible to salvage His children from the same fate as Satan's (Which is to die in the "Lake of Fire, and be no more)
Do you realize how exciting things will be shortly?
Why? We get to
face the Dragon and his locust army!
(I said exciting, not easy!)
The Book of Revelation
tells us about it, and no matter what you may have been told is actually very easy to comprehend?
Once we take the time to understand the symbolism
that the Holy Spirit uses to paint vivid pictures for us,
the meaning becomes self evident.
Often it just requires the application of common sense more so than "doctoral like" scholarship.
Now let's study the revelation of the "Acts of the Dragon" in Rev. 13:5.
Rev. 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies;
and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
Rev. 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God,
to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Many people when they read these last two verses imagine that the dragon, Satan, the antichrist, when he comes to earth as the spurious messiah,
is going to say evil things against God.
But he's not going
to be speaking "bad things" about God.
He's going to be speaking AS GOD,
i.e. everything that comes out of his mouth is blasphemous
because he is claiming that HE IS GOD.
Remember what Paul told us would happen BEFORE our gathering back to Christ?
2 Thes. 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means:
for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first,
and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
The "falling away" is the great apostasy which
we will read of in a few verses in Rev. 13:8
whereby the whole world worships the dragon,
the son of perdition,
the son who will perish, i.e. Satan,
because of the next verse in 2 Thessalonians.
2 Thes. 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,
or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God.
There is your blaspheme of Rev. 13:6!
Blaspheme of God's "name and His tabernacle and all that is in heaven".
Satan sits in
the temple of God claiming to be the Messiah
and all those Christians who didn't have enough oil in their lamps,
i.e. were Biblically illiterate and were not sealed with the knowledge of His Word,
are bowing to the dragon, worshipping Satan, believing he is Jesus!
The dragon is
really good at deception.
Just wait a few verses and we'll see him perform "miracles" to dazzle the troops!
Rev. 13:8 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.
There it is, the Great Apostasy!
If you don't know
ahead of time that there are two Christs,
if you don't understand 2 Thes. 2 and the 7 Seals real, real good,
then you will worship Satan as Jesus.
You see, from
Ezekiel 28 we know how beautiful and marvelous
and wonderful and charismatic this guy really is!
And from Daniel
we know he enters in peacefully and prosperously
with a booming economy,
meaning big bucks for everyone ("It's the economy, stupid!")!
And from the previous
chapter in Revelation, chapter 12,
we know that he drew a third of God's children away from God in the first earth age!
Live Link to- Revelations 12
Folks, he's really,
really good at swooning people!
They just love him to death (both figuratively and literally)!
And do you want
to know something that's a mystery to most,
yet it is real simple?
Remember in chapter
12 we saw the woman, clothed with the sun,
with her 12 stars standing there facing the dragon and his own?
Live Link to- Revelations 12
She was standing
there "ready to go" in the first earth age,
before the foundation of this earth age!
It is those who
stood against the dragon in that first earth age,
before the foundation of this world,
who already had their names written in the Lamb's Book of Life when they entered this earth age of flesh and blood man and woman, born through the womb of a earth woman.
But Maybe you are not one of those who stood against the dragon, Satan, when he drew 1/3 of us into his camp, against God, during the first earth age. If that is the case there is still time to get your name entered in the book of life, by grace, in this earth age, if you believe Jesus is THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD, and repent of your sins in His name! That is "God's Plan" for His children. To salvage as many of our souls from perishing in "The Lake of Fire", those individuals who will accept His offer, as possible.
But, you must enter into "The Book of Life" by the name of Jesus Christ!
Have you repented of your sins and ask forgiveness, claiming the blood of Christ as your covering.
your name entered there, in the "Book of Life"?
Rev. 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
In Revelation chapters 1 through
3 Christ took the apostle John, in
the spirit, 2000
years into the future to this 21st. century,
and showed him
is/will be happening on EARTH
and in the seven "END
of TIME" churches on the day of Lord, the first day of the
a time even yet
future, but very, very near since
we are already nearly 70 years
into the "Fig
Please keep in mind as you read these accounts in Revelation that our Lord took John spiritually into the future (this is prophecy) and many of these events that he describes haven't happened, as yet, in real time even though John has seen them.Now we are going to read The seven SEALS of Christ's Revelation and "see" what He showed John is/will be happening in HEAVEN at this same time.
