What is the Reason Christ Told us to Learn

"The Parable of the Fig Tree"?

 Revelation, the 6th Seal!
The seals of revelation, remember, unlock, i.e. give access to the knowledge (His Word) that is necessary for one to have stored in his/her forehead in order to remain a "virgin" until the true Bridegroom comes at the sound of the 7th Trump, the final trump.

When both Messiahs return (the false first at the sixth trump and then the real Christ at the seventh trump) they bring "stars of heaven" with them. This should not be mysterious sounding to anyone who has studied Revelation with us up to this point, because we learned in the first chapter what "stars" are symbolic of: us, they are angelsi.e. we sons of God.

"The parable of the Fig Tree" therefore, gives us our guide as to what to watch for;
Telling us when this season is upon us,
i.e. when to anticipate Christ will soon return and 
how long before that, will it be when Satan shows up here on earth claiming he is God.

If you're waiting for your wedding day to be married to your fiancée, the Bridegroom, Jesus, then don't go crawling in bed and losing your virginity to someone else.
  Paul's analogy is to the spiritual seduction evidenced by verse 3.
2 Cor. 11:3
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
So Mark 13:17 should be a "no brainer" also. Christ is simply saying that when He returns, at the seventh trump, to take His virgin bride, i.e. pro-claiming Christian bride, and finds she is already spiritually nursing a baby, Satan's spiritual baby, guess what?

He knows she's already "been had" by the spurious messiah! She has been SEDUCED. "Woe unto them" means He's really angry. Let's use a figure of speech,"He's not a happy camper!" 
How would you feel?
Mark 13:18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
Don't be taken out of season! Harvest time is NOT in the winter! Wait on the Lord, the true one not the fake!
[19] For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
The word "affliction" means "tribulation". Here is part of the key to understanding the 6th seal.
When the son of perdition stands in the Holy Place showing great signs and wonders, performing miracles in the sight of men, deceiving the whole world into believing he's Jesus Christ, that THAT time will be the greatest "tribulation" of all time.
[20] And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
In fact, Satan is sooooooo good at deception that Christ has rescheduled this actor's 3 1/2 year personal appearance and performance as "The Messiah is Here" soon to be playing in the Temple, to a shorter run, the length of which we will learn in chapter 9.
[21] And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
So, if someone tells you Jesus has returned, just perform the "pinch test". Pinch yourself really hard with your sharpest fingernails (if you've chewed them off, use your teeth), and if you draw blood,
 BELIEVE HIM NOT. Say to him "That's really something isn't it, er.. I'm bleeding... look see... would you excuse me? Do you know where I can find a Band-Aid?"

You see, when the true Messiah returns we who are alive and remain will instantly, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the snap of a finger, be changed from our flesh bodies into our spiritual bodies.

Have you not read of this "mystery" by Paul in 1 Cor. 15?  The flesh age ends when Christ returns.
[22] For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
When Satan is kicked out of heaven in Revelation 12:7-9 and comes to earth as the false messiah, you'll read that his angels are cast out with him.  These guys are really good too! These are the same fallen angels that seduced the daughters of Adam in Gen. chapter 6.  We just read that they are coming to SEDUCE again. How do we know? It's recorded in Matthew's account in chapter 24 concerning this same seal.
These are the words of Jesus Christ:
Matthew 24:37
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
It's going to be just like it was in the days of Noe (Greek for Noah). What were they doing back then?
[38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Who was doing the seducing? The sons of God, the fallen angels who left their first habitation, i.e. their heavenly abode (see Jude), and came to earth and seduced the daughters of Adam, the union of which produced giants and for this reason God flooded the land in Noah's day to rid the land of these hybrids.
Live Link to- Just as it was in the days of Noah!

And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
They were unaware of the impending flood about to sweep them away and so they WERE TAKEN in the flood.
[40] Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
This up and coming seduction by Satan's fallen angels will not be "physical seduction" as it was is Noah's day; It will be the "spiritual seduction" of your minds with Satan's lies about who the real Christ is
or should I say,
is not!

And so just as it was in the days of Noah, those who are unaware WILL BE TAKEN in the flood of lies and be seduced and impregnated with deception. There is absolutely no other way to interpret what is being said here unless you pluck these verses out of context and twist them to appear to say something they don't.
That is how Satan, the illusionist, "un-rightly" divides the Word of God.
Note: Many ignorant and the unlearned preachers, believe, and teach us, that the first one taken is raptured by Jesus Christ. They along with their entire congregations are going to get screwed and lose their virginity! Too graphic? I think not! Eternal life is at stake here!
[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
All were taken except Noah, his wife, his 3 sons and their wives.

Just like it was in the days of Noah! We are without excuse! How so? Remember Christ's words back in Mark 13:23? He told us everything, exactly how it is going to be!
Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
We are now ready to return to verse 12 of Revelation chapter 6 and begin the 6th Seal.
I know we are spending considerable time on chapter 6 and each of the seals, but when you think about their importance and the fact that you must have this knowledge "sealed" in your mind so as not to be taken in the flood, then a little extra careful "dividing" is more than justified.

What is it that Jesus Christ would have us learn from the 6th Seal? For one thing, there are TWO TRIBULATIONS! We'll find out more as we continue in this Book of Revelation!

When is the last time you heard your preacher or minister, or for that matter anybody else's preacher or minister, talk about the Two Messiahs? Who has told you that there are Two Jesus Christs? Who has told you how to tell the Two Jesus Christs apart, from one another?  And who has told you that there are TWO TRIBULATIONS? In other words, who has explained the 6th Seal to you?

Have you ever observed how the cause of the tribulation is always portrayed as some human flesh "man" who is "probably" alive right now on earth somewhere and is just waiting to be revealed? "Guesses" by the unlearned (those who don't know what the Bible teaches and guess at what it says) include figures such as Saddam Hussein, the Pope, the President, or some Jew living in Israel, and on and on and on!
Would you like to see deception at work?
Just go into a religious book store and see all the books written about the tribulation! Babel, Babel, which means Confusion, Confusion! Satan, the rider of the white horse in Seal 1, just loves it! You can bet he gives his horse an "apple" for a treat every time someone buys that trot!

That which we MUST LEARN from the 6th Seal is that there are Two Tribulations and we MUST KNOW not only what they entail but the sequential order in which they occur.  And it is very simple: There is the tribulation of Satan when he comes to earth first as the false-christ and it is followed by the tribulation of Christ, the wrath of Almighty God.

We read much about the tribulation of Satan, the "seduction" as in the days of Noah, the consuming flood that takes those (first ones) who are unaware (have not the seal of God in their foreheads), etc.
We shall read much more about this period of time before we finish this great Book of Revelation and about the spiritual devastation it (which is actually a time of peace) brings upon the souls of men, the likes of which can only be compared to the slaughter of warfare and the consuming of flesh by beasts.

Let us now examine the 6th Seal, unveiled by the Lamb of God, taking verses 12 and 13 together as they complete a sentence.
Rev. 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

[13] And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

When both Messiahs return (the false first at the sixth trump and then the real Christ at the seventh trump) they bring "stars of heaven" with them.

This should not be mysterious sounding to anyone who has studied Revelation with us up to this point
, because we learned in the first chapter what "stars" are symbolic of: us, they are angels, i.e. we sons of God. We know Jesus brings the saints with Him (1 Thes. 4) when He returns.

When Satan is cast out of heaven
in Rev. 12:7-9 to this earth, his angels are also cast out with him.
So he brings "stars" too! 
Rev. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Now notice in 6:13 that they are cast out as a fig tree casts her "untimely" figs when violently shaken. Untimely figs are figs out of season, i.e. not ripe. Remember, we read that Christ said "pray that your flight be not in winter", out of season. These stars, angels of Satan, appear out of season, BEFORE harvest time which is when Christ returns.
Be sure you're not deceived and "harvested" by them, at the 6th Seal

what about the sun becoming darkened as sackcloth of hair?
Doesn't the sun darken when Jesus returns? Yes it does, but by reason of His brightness, not like black sackcloth of mohair.

Here's how the sun darkens by the false Jesus:
Rev. 9:1-2
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. [2] And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

I know we haven't covered the symbolisms contained in this verse yet, but simply notice that the sun is darkened by reason of the "smoke of the pit".

Let's look again at verse 12.
Rev. 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
The phrase "the moon became as blood" means that the whole, or full moon became as the color of blood. (See note on "moon" in verse 12 of the Companion Bible)

Now let's continue with the 6th Seal. But first we'll repeat verses 12 and 13.
Rev. 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

[13] And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

Rev. 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
This is the beginning of the birth of a new age which signals the return of the true Messiah, the second advent.
[15] And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
Do you know why these people from every walk of life want to hide themselves?
It is for the shame of realizing they've been seduced and even caused others to be "had" likewise!
We have an expression in English that aptly describes this, they will have "Hit Rock Bottom"!
[16] And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
"Hide us from the shame and embarrassment! I'd rather die than face Him!" People just don't want to face reality, do they?
Well guess what? He's real!
[17] For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
The second tribulation is come!
That's enough

The question is ... "Who shall be able to stand?"

And the answer is... Those who have endured, until the end, with patience and maintained their virginity by wearing the full suit of gospel armor (Eph 6) and have 'stood against the fiery darts of Satan'.  Yes, they will still be standing. The rest will have fallen short in ignorance and deception and missed the 1st Resurrection and the double portion of inheritance that comes with it. Don't let that happen to you. Learn the Seals and then unroll the Scroll.

Let us now finish the 6th Seal as Christ gave it in the Book of Mark, chapter 13.

Mark 13:24
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

[25] And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

Untimely figs shall be shaken out. The only time the "powers of heaven" are shaken is when Satan and his cronies are booted out. Then there is silence in heaven (Rev. 8:1), but woe to those on earth when he comes.
Rev. 12:12
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Continuing in Mark 13.

Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
And THEN (AFTER), after the tribulation of Satan when he comes as the spurious messiah
, they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds with GREAT power and glory. (Ooops, another puncture in the Rapture Balloon.)

And then shall He send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

[28] Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:

If you don't want to be harvested out of season then you better do as the Savior instructs: Learn the parable of the Fig Tree.
Log unto- The Parable of the Fig Tree

 [29] So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

 If you're educated in the Word of God and you see these things come to pass, then you will know what's happening! No guesswork!

But here is the bottom line:

If you don't know ahead of time that the False Messiah is coming first; if you believe Jesus Christ can return at any moment; if you don't have the Seal of God in your forehead, then it will be next to impossible to convince you that the First Rider of a White Horse, when he appears in person, is not Jesus Christ. For he/Satan is most charming and beautiful (see Ezekiel chapter 28) and he will bring peace and prosperity to the world and he will perform great signs and miracles in the sight of men and his ministers, appearing as angels of light, will be sweet as pie as they seduce you.
When will all this happen?

Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.

The generation referred to here is the generation pertaining to the subject being discussed, i.e. the Fig Tree. When you learn the parable you will find that both the good and the bad figs (Jer. 24) were set out on May 15, 1948 when the United Nations sanctioned the State of Israel.

So there will be those of the Baby Boomer generation (which officially began in 1946) who will see the return of Jesus Christ.

[31] Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

You can count on it! And isn't it incredible to know that the "Word of God" has now been declassified, no longer under seal, available to understand clearly to anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear? Isn't that wonderful?
It's all there in the "Book of Revelation" for all of us to now read with understanding!  

In Revelation chapters 1 through 3 Christ took the apostle John, in the spirit2000 years into the future to this 21st. century, and showed him what is/will be happening on EARTH and in the seven "END of TIME" churches on the day of Lord, the first day of the Millennium, a time even yet future, but very, very near since we are already 66 years into the "Fig Tree"  generation.
Live Link To-Revelation chapter 1 through 3

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.
We are going to actually see the throne of Almighty God and what is transpiring beyond the veil that separates the two dimensions, flesh and spirit, "behind the scenes" so to speak.

Live Link to- Revelation chapter 12
God has allowed and is allowing Satan, through his children, the Kenites, to make alterations in our Bibles. When I compare some of our most popular new versions of the Bible to the original 1611 King James Bible it is shocking what I've found. Many of them published since the 1970s
Joel1:3 Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.
Live Link to- The Famine is Coming
And because of this, Chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation is to many folks one of the scariest and most misunderstood chapters in all the Bible
By the way, if your father or one of your forefathers has broken this commandment of God in Joel 1:3 to tell your children His words contained herein, then YOU get busy studying His Word and learn the truth and restart the process with your children. John 14:15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments."
Live Link to- Revelation chapter 13
In Revelation chapter 14 we get to see what will be happening on earth when Jesus Christ returns. Good old John is still in heaven and once again he looks on and has already seen it..
Live Link to- Revelation chapter 14
In chapter 14 we saw what will be happening on earth at Christ's return. Now in chapter 15 we are going to see what will be happening from the vantage point of heaven at that same time. In chapter 16 we see the 7 Vials containing the wrath of God pours out upon those who had/will have the mark of the beast in their foreheads (minds) and who worshipped Satan, the false messiah, as Jesus Christ. 
Live Link to- Revelation chapters 15 & 16
In chapter 16 we saw the 7 Vials containing the wrath of God to be poured out upon those who had the mark of the beast in their foreheads (minds) and who worshipped Satan, the false messiah, as Jesus Christ.
We will now see one of those 7 angels who poured out the vials come and give us a "close up" view of the judgment of the "Great Whore". Maybe we should update the terminology a little and call her the "Great Slut" because the Holy Spirit wants us to get a real good PICTURE of exactly how He looks upon the false religious system  that spews forth from of our churches, that great city where the "son of perdition" will sit claiming that he is God (2 Thes. 2).  Also, be it known that our Father deals in reality, so if the terminology used here is offensive then one can always go to a church where they only teach nice things like cute little bunny rabbits and Ishtar eggs, real Biblical gems.
Live Link to- Revelation chapters 17, 18 and 19
We come now to the 20th chapter of Revelation at which point the 7th Trump has sounded and the true Jesus Christ has returned with great power and glory, bringing with Him His army of saints. Babylon the Great, i.e. the one world political system and the great whore along with Satan's role as the false-christ, the spurious messiah, has been destroyed forever and ever. And as we learned in our chapter 19, ALL flesh has been "changed" and everyone, both the good and the bad are in their spiritual bodies.
So it is the first day of the Millennium and John, who remember in Rev. 1:16 was taken there for an eye witness account, gives us another advanced news report, this time concerning the fate of Satan during the Millennium. Can't you just visualize the headlines?


First Edition


John, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was present today as Michael came down from heaven and appeared on Satan's doorstep with a warrant from the King of kings for his arrest. Satan has been residing in the temple for the last 5 months (ever since Michael cast him from heaven) where he has been impersonating Jesus Christ and claiming he is the Messiah come. He also is being held responsible for orchestrating the murder of God's two witnesses, a despicable crime, which he has been actually celebrating with his cronies for the last 3 1/2 days
When Christ returns, Woe to any one He finds spiritually nursing Satan's Baby!
You see, the temple Christ will destroy at His return, is that false temple that exists in  the heart of many/most pro-claiming Christians (Religion), that they've allowed Satan, "The Rider of the First White Horse" to built there; With the help of the strangers, i.e. kenites, who helped him build it (666), crushing all those little stones, not leaving one atop another!
Only those pro-claiming Christians with "The Seal of God" firmly planted in there mind will know it is the false-christ, i.e. the spurious messiah, not the true Christ sitting there in their heart!
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.

We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
