ON PERSONAL REVELATION
This book and its title I have hand written it out, over and over and yes even on my computer many times before I decided on this title of beware of the coming days pass the word that would tell the full purpose for gaining knowledge of the coming days for time is running out. The reasoning for this opening statement is to stress the point about revelation that comes from God to teach or instruct us to be aware what we may encounter today and in the coming days. Yes, taking it a step further that my opening with “on personal revelation” is more of my personal introduction to why this book is being written; and it is because this writer believe that it needs to stated early that any individual can write much about the subject of the Revelation of Jesus Christ in various ways. However, in all truth within the modern-day evangelical church today, that more than ever before do we need to have the knowledge of revelation and especially personal revelation on the Bible. However, I do also believe that we Christians that make up the modern-day evangelical church especially need a personal revelation of the book of Revelation so, that we the church may make ready for the coming days and the Lord’s return.
The research for the writing of this book was done from studying many commentaries on the book of Revelation and from many translations of the Bible. Yes, there are two main translations to be quoted during the writing of this book will be taken from the King James Bible and the New King James Version of the Bible. Yes, I will from time to time quote other scriptures from other translations to stress my point of logic.
“Beware of the coming days pass the word” is a book about how the Spirit of God keeps revealing many personal revelations about the things of the coming days by dreams and visions, Joel 2:28 and Revelation 1:1. In addition, how that the evil hand of Satan is still working in the Body of Christ or the servants of Christ to destroy the Lord’s prophetic word and the Divine Revelation of Jesus Christ regarding the coming days. While reading out of the Revelation of Jesus Christ or the book of Revelation here in the past year the Holy Spirit has begun to unveil many things that I had never seen before in the book of Revelation about the coming days and that we the Body of Christ or the modern-day evangelical church; that there is the true need to make ready the coming days and the Lord’s return. In addition, and note this well that the prophecy of the books of the New Testament clearly states the serious problems within the Body of Christ regarding passing the word of the coming days especially the prophecy in the book of Revelation and its prophecy. Yes, I can say that even today while I study this prophecy of the book of Revelation it still brings me fear that will I be strong enough to face the coming days and to pass on the prophecy of the book of Revelation. Therefore, if we do not take heed or pay attention to the prophetic word of our Lord recorded in the pages of the book of Revelation, we will find our lives full of uncertainties about the coming days. In addition, the Spirit of God has revealed unto me that as I write I must keep bringing into people’s mind the remembrance that today is the time to repent for it is stated many times during all of these terrible events and days there will be those who are of the world will not and did not repent.
I can state with all honesty there are many writers who are writing about the book of Revelation and the prophetic word of the book of Revelation and I am just another one of these writers. Each of them as well as myself relates the prophetic word or revelation of what the Lord has showed unto them about the Revelation of Jesus Christ by the Spirit of God. However, I will tell you that I am no television evangelist or even a best seller writer; however, after reading some of the writings that other writers write about the book of Revelation, I see even more clearly that there is a need to further write about the coming days from the book of Revelation or the Revelation of Jesus Christ maybe in a new understanding. In addition, each and every writer has their style of writing and they have their own style of introduction to what they are going to write.
Most writers begin their writings with the way one should interpret the book of Revelation or The Holy Scriptures, however, let me begin this writing by making this statement about the Body of Christ with this astonishing truth that the Body of Christ does not teach the prophetic warning about the coming days enough. Yes, I can also state this which is a bold statement, however, during my years of ministry, where that I have heard many comments about why men and women who do not study or much less read the book of Revelation. The biggest comment is I do not have time or that they are afraid of the content written in the book of Revelation.
Let me tell you that for many years before I went to being a preacher of God’s word I searched for the truth in the world and failed to find it. Therefore, now going back in time in to the year of 1953 when on the night that the Lord God’s Spirit spoke to me on that mountain top in West Virginia I have been searching for the truth for what is spiritual and what will take place in the last days for my own personal understanding to proclaim the word of God. It was at this time of my calling that I began to search for the truth of what is spiritual in the word of God and that took this kind of a searching for the truth and it came in this manner, it was through going to many different denominations.
Then it was about these many denominations and of their church doctrine; and their teaching of that doctrine, as well as about their spiritual teaching and understanding about the last days. What is the sad thing to state that what I heard and on my part was what I took for grant while I was a young Christian in the Body of Christ and still learning and searching for the truth of what would take place in the last days and how would I be personally involved in any part of it? Yet deep down within my inter-being of my search or within side of my spirit which kept saying that there hast to be more truth than what I have been hearing from the pulpit and from teachers within the church of today.
Maybe the best honest answer is that within my own personal understanding of what the Spirit of God was saying that there has to be a more complete truth about the revelation of the last days than what I had been hearing. Therefore, the personal point which I am trying to make is that I could not completely agree with what I heard being taught or what I was hearing when the book of Revelation said something completely different. However, the truth is at that stage in my life I just accepted what was being taught.
Then in the days and years to come as I grew in faith spiritually then a completely new and different reality set in or a new revelation set in. Yes, this reality of truth that set in to me personally was this that there is only one place where I could find the complete truth about the last days was from what has been recorded by all of the prophets of Old Testament and the apostles from the New Testament and the Revelation of Jesus Christ meaning the complete books of the Holy Scriptures. Furthermore, it was out of this new truth and revelation from the Spirit of God; which brought about a great challenge in my understanding and it is to this point, where it began to challenge me even further my own personal understanding to look even more deeply at what I had taken for grant for many years of what I heard and what was being taught by many.
Then to my great surprise even yet another real hard reality set in, where I became even more frustrated, and where it even brought about bewilderment, that all that I had taken for grant could not be supported by the Holy Scriptures about the coming days and what was spiritual of which I had believed for many years. The real truth is that I had to begin my search even more diligently to find answers to my own personal quest in my own questions about the coming days and what was spiritual and where would the church be during the coming days. In addition, the more I search the scriptures of how God told His prophets or instructed them on how to state His prophetic word to Israel and then what the Lord taught in His parables to Israel that the kingdom of heaven was like unto the more I found out that what I believe was inconsistent with the Holy Scriptures of what the prophets of old wrote regarding the last days and the kingdom of heaven and about eternal life.
Furthermore, yet another reality of truth set in and it is this reality to where it even came as a greater shock unto me and that is that out of the Lord’s teaching His Father’s will, in His Father’s old commandments or the law of Moses that by the Lord’s teaching they even became more, stricter under His Divine teaching unto His disciples. These are a couple of examples of the realities that set in my personal understanding and walk of faith sent me searching for how do I overcome my own personal weakness and walk more fully in the revelation of God and in will of God.
It is sad to say however, what I personally found in the Holy Scriptures was not what I had heard while I was yet a young Christian for now the Spirit of God is bringing a whole new understanding or revelation about the last days or the coming days and what is spiritual living in the coming days. Furthermore, in this new-found revelation that the Spirit of God brought unto my understanding which would truly open up my eyes and ear to remove the spiritual blindness as well as my spiritual deafness’s which opened my ears with a new spiritual hearing for regarding the prophetic word of the Holy Scriptures of the last days. To be very honest with this new revelation of God’s prophetic Holy Word to say the least was nothing less than exhilarating. In addition, I gain a whole new sense of God’s Holy Word and His prophetic message where that it brought me to the point to truly understand why God was about ready to pour out His wrath upon mankind in the coming days. Nevertheless, it was out of this revelation that I began stripping away the things which I had believed before as well as the popular teaching or the traditional teaching in order to gain and further my understanding of the events of the coming days.
From that time forward, it became, the time of which I began searching for the deep spiritual truth, about the coming days and let me say this unto you that it began with countless hours of searching from every means and every resource I could find to give me the truth pertaining to the coming days and yet I find that the best resource is the Holy Scriptures and again it is my best resource for truth and the truth of the coming days. One of the most astonishing truths of which I had honestly was that I had to come to grips with was with this fact that most churches today as well as many individuals believe and teach that the Old Testament has no relevance and that it does not pertain to the church today for, they say that we the church are under grace. In addition, there are many individual Christians who further believe that the coming days recorded in the book of Revelation is a long way off and that they have plenty of time to get their life in order and therefore I feel that I would be safe in saying they have fallen asleep. As you read further in this book you will find various issues on the book of Revelation that will bring you to understand why there are various opinions regarding the prophecy of the book of Revelation.
Again, if I may be so bold to make this statement: If the New Testament has no relevance for today in the modern-day church. Then one must consider this point that Jesus and His Disciples would have been living under a false teaching or error of what the Lord’s Father told unto the Lord to teach form the old covenant or Old Testament of which He made with Israel at Mount Sinai. Furthermore, to make such a claim is saying that the Father’s word and will is in error, therefore, if our Lord was teaching His Father’s word and will from the Old Testament to them which came to hear about the will of God then as one of His servants why should I not be doing what my Lord was doing when He taught them of God’s will. Therefore, according to the Wisdom of Solomon where he stated in the book of Proverbs that a man should not lean unto his own understanding Proverbs 3:5.
From all of the prophets of the Old Testament I can say with all honesty that their prophetic word has given me the understanding of what I have today even more so today that I can state you this truth that time is running out. The more I write about the Holy Scriptures and its instruction about the coming days the more the Spirit of God brings into my understanding the things which He wants me to write and reveal about God’s Holy Word and the Revelation of Jesus Christ and about the coming days in these terms for Israel, the church, and the last days. Moreover, the more I read the prophetic words of the book of Revelation the Lord God by His Spirit keeps increasing His Divine revelation of the coming days from the Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave unto His Son to show unto His servants the things which must shortly come to pass. Again, I can say with all honesty that in the revelation of the Lord’s revelation which He said that He would bless those who read, and hears, and keeps the words of this prophecy Revelation 1:3.
Again, as I began to search for an answer about writing about beware of the coming days pass the word, I ask the Lord’s Spirit first about what to write about the last days or the coming days and how to pass the word. My very first thought which came to me was from Paul’s writing to Timothy about perilous times will come found in 2 Timothy 3 verses one through seven which is about how people will act the last days which I will state more about further in the writing of this book. The complete purpose of this book is to tell unto you the Divine prophecy of God which He gave to the prophets of old and the words of the apostles, however, the most important part of writing is in regards of the Revelation of Jesus Christ which he told the apostle John to write a book on the things he was about to see and send to the churches in Asia Revelation 1:11. The Lord has made it clear from the very first verse or text of scripture in Revelation 1:1 that the book of Revelation is about what must shortly come to pass meaning the coming days and that He is showing His servants these things recorded by John in Revelation one through twenty two. In the twenty-two chapters in the book of Revelation is all about revealing the things that must shortly come to pass in the coming days. The point I am making is from the opening text in Revelation one to the final text in chapter twenty-two is how the Lord is unveiling His revelation unto His servants about the coming days to bring them unto the kingdom of heaven.
The red flag of warning from the Spirit of God keeps bringing into my mind and for us as the church or the Body of Christ to take heed of the Revelation of Jesus Christ for we are closer than we were than the day we first believed or the day that the Lord walked among us on this earth. As for me the writing of this book beware of the coming days pass the word is the Lord’s assignment which He has given unto me to write about the coming days. In addition, to tell unto all the world about what is coming is from God and He is revealing it through the revelation which He gave unto His Son to show unto His servants. Again, repeating myself the writing of this book is solely about beware of the coming days and to pass the word how Christian should take heed of the Lord God Almighty’s warning that He is about to pour out His wrath upon this earth. In addition, each and every Christian should consider all of the facts which are recorded in the book of Revelation for the Lord reveals what will take place before His Second Coming as well as what will take place in the final days before His return to claim His Bride.
The Spirit of God keeps saying unto me do not to write a traditional commentary only that I am to write a book about the coming days and to proclaim that time is running out and that the Body of Christ needs to make ready to overcome all of the events of the coming days as well as what Satan will try to do by trying to keep you from gaining the Revelation of Jesus Christ which will give you victory unto eternal life. Since the church began on the Day of Pentecost to be very honest the messages of God have not changed only mankind and the way they believe what the message of God is as well as what the Revelation of Jesus Christ is. Therefore, there is a great problem within the Body of Christ today of which the Lord addressed in His message unto the church of Laodicea where He makes it clear that because they are lukewarm and neither hot or cold and therefore, He will spue them out of His mouth. Then the question comes to mind are we that kind of people in the Body of Christ that makes the Lord Jesus Christ sick enough at His stomach that will make Him vomit us out of His mouth? Yet even another question that comes to mind even for me personally about what I am doing, and what the Lord wants me to do or am I making Him sick? However, to be very honest I can say that I am and believe that I am alright, yet when I look at myself, I ask are you living up to the full standard and principle of what God has instructed me to do.
In each of the epistle the writer usually opens his epistle or writing with a greeting from him and the Lord to whom they are writing unto before they get to the main reason why they are writing. However, in what the Spirit has spoken unto me that I must begin with the preface of the Lord’s Revelation to reveal unto His servants the things which must shortly come to pass Revelation 1:1.
The Spirit of God said you will find the preface to the book of Revelation in verses one through three and write this preface unto my servants. The preface unto the Lord’s servants shows seven major elements or principles about the book of Revelation and the coming days. The first is the authority and the second is the Revelation of Jesus Christ. The third is to show unto His servants and the fourth is the things which must shortly come to pass and the fifth is to bear record of God’s word. The sixth is the testimony of Jesus Christ and the seventh is the blessing from the Lord for reading, hearing, and keeping the words of this prophecy.
From the opening text here in the book of Revelation it should become very clear that it is all about the revelation that God gave unto His Son to show unto His servants the things which must shortly come to pass. From the night of my calling on that mountain in West Virginia I came to understand this about the work of the Lord God Almighty and about my calling that is the work of which God gives was my assignment or my commission to go and proclaim His Holy Word and the writing of this book is another one of my assignment from the Lord to write about the coming days and to beware of the coming days and for me to pass the word. One should always remember or consider this fact about the Revelation of Jesus Christ that He is unveiling the fact of what is going to take place in the coming days as well as each and every servants assignment to show the things which must shortly come to pass. One might even interpret the book of Revelation as the Lord’s unveiling of the final days before His return to claim His bride or His Second Coming.
As a pastor and teacher of the Holy Scriptures one of my personal concerns is that too many people feel and thinks that the book of Revelation is a book that cannot be understood or interpreted by them and that it takes a scholar or theologian to interpret the book of Revelation. Then my question is then why did the first verse of scriptures here in Revelation 1:1 state that it was to be showed unto His servants the things which must shortly come to pass? To be honest I cannot help but feel that this was a clear indication that we as individuals in the members of the Body of Christ that we are to read, hear, and keep the words written within this prophecy meaning His servants.
I write these words of encouragement to everyone that the book of Revelation is just not for the biblical scholars and theologians or the highly educated, in addition, it is not unapproachable by the average person. In addition, let me add this thought that the book of Revelation is not written for just a select group of people for it is for all the members called into the Body of Christ as their guideline of understanding how to make ready for the kingdom of heaven in the coming days. Therefore, as members of the Body of Christ it is with this utmost importance that we do not neglect or lose touch with the prophetic words of Christ written in the book of Revelation that stresses the facts of the coming days. Yet even another important element we as members of the Body of Christ must keep in mind is this key element that the Revelation of Jesus Christ speaks to a time and age of which is progressively drawing nearer where we will need the full reality of the power of Jesus written instructions in the Revelation of Jesus Christ of how we are to overcome the world and the evil hand of Satan in the coming days.
I have made these statements to further your understanding to this point of what is recorded in the book of Daniel, where you will find that that the prophet states that in the last days knowledge will increase Daniel 12:4. Therefore, if you are a good Christian and studying the words of the Holy Scriptures then it would be in order to ask you is your knowledge of the Holy Scriptures is increasing, therefore, the more you study this prophetic word of God? However, here is yet another fact that we must also remember that with this ever-increasing knowledge that it is recorded that many will not repent with all of the terrible events taking place around them and to them. Therefore, let me bring to your attention for even the apostle Paul writes about how people will be in the last days and its perilous time in 2 Timothy 3:1-7. Probably one of the most important elements written in chapter one of the book of Revelation that we as servants of the Lord must remember is that when the Lord spoke unto John the Lord made it clear that John was to write a book and send to the seven churches in Asia the things which he heard and saw Revelation 1:11.
The point of logic is this that John was to record all that he seen and heard and of the imagines he would see in his visions regarding the coming days or the last days of that which he witnesses firsthand of what the Lord Jesus Christ would reveal. The members of the Body of Christ are reading these prophetic words of the Revelation of Jesus Christ which John was told to write in a book. Let me add this bold statement about what John saw and heard that I personally cannot believe that John wrote it all in symbols and allegories of which many states today, however, some of it had to be taken literally by the apostle John in his visions of the coming days. Moreover, with all honesty I believe that the Revelation of Jesus Christ is a living, breathing, prophetic word of the events that will unfold during the coming days and to let it be known unto his servants or unto His bride that He will return to claim His bride. Furthermore, it was written by the Lord’s apostle and servant to be given unto the servants of the Body of Christ needs to understand what the Lord’s revelation was for predicting the events of the coming days and His return to claim His Bride. If there is one book in the New Testament that is dictated to be the prophetic words of the coming days, I would feel safe in saying that it is the book of Revelation.
In addition, as the events of the coming days progressively come together, many people and Christians will perceive that the prophetic word of the book of Revelation and the end of time is fast approaching or our time is running out. The book of Revelation when it comes to interpreting it has always been a difficult task because of the vital lessons that the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ wants their servants to know and to understand fully all of the events of the coming days or the things which must shortly come to pass. Let me give you also this thought for your understanding, even though the book of Revelation is difficult to interpret it is also my own personal fear that it is one of the most neglected books to be read in the entire Old and New Testaments.
Furthermore, the sad result about the book of Revelation is this that it remains a closed book for many good Christians today. Therefore, the Spirit of God said write a full prophetic word of which will come unto you to write about pass the word and beware of the coming days. The Spirit of God also instructed me that because there are so many events which will fall upon the earth in the coming days you will have to write much of what I will show unto you which may involve writing many books about the coming days. In addition, it is well to take note that the book of Revelation was written after all of the other apostles had died, except the apostle John. The Spirit of God said unto me remind the people that the scroll or book in the prophecy of Daniel the Lord God told Daniel or instructed to close up the book until the end of time or the end of days Daniel 12:4.
The book of Revelation is a book that holds life to them that overcome their sins and the world; in addition, it holds rewards and promises of which the Lord will give to them that overcome. Nevertheless, the most important fact is that the book of Revelation holds all of the terrible events that will fall upon mankind and the world if they do not turn from their wickedness and return to the Lord God Almighty according to what is written within the pages of the Holy Scriptures as well as book of Revelation. The writing of Beware of the Coming Days Pass the Word will be taken from many translations of the Holy Scriptures to reveal the full reality of what the Revelation of Jesus Christ prophetic word states unto Israel, the church, and the last days. However, you find in the New Testament when the apostles write about the prophetic message that the Spirit of God has revealed unto them, they describe many of the uncertainties and insecurities that will take place in the last days for the Body of Christ.
I have stated before that the book of Revelation is considered to be to most people a book of literature that is a class of its own full of codes and symbols from their basic understanding of Revelation. However, there are those individuals who see and understand that this book of Revelation designates as the supernatural power of the Lord God and His Son by them unveiling the revelation unto Their servants the events which must shortly come to pass or the coming days. It is also well to note that the book of Revelation holds or distinguished the many key elements of the coming days as a time period in the near future when God will break forth into the world with all His fury to pour out His wrath upon mankind for their disobedience.
A BASIC INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOK OF REVELATION
To start this basic introduction, I have gone back to some of my notes and books I study while I was attending college and doing my seminary work on the book of Revelation. I thank our Lord God for the insight He exposed unto me during these days of study; therefore, in this task I now take to for the writing this book Beware of the Coming Days Pass the Word. It has been stated many times by other writers that there has been a great misunderstanding as well as a misinterpretation regarding the book of Revelation regarding the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Therefore, I will not claim that I will interpret the book of Revelation any better than any of the other writers or interpreters of this book of Revelation regarding the coming events. However, what I will try to do is this as I will try to write on a level that everyone can understand. If I may be so bold as to use this context as an example it is no wonder that many do not understand the Revelation of Jesus Christ regarding the coming days we have as members of the Body of Christ not pick up the blueprint of instruction and read the Divine and Holy Blueprint of our Lord’s Revelation.
Yes, I will even go so far to state that the book of Revelation is one of the most, rare composition that has ever been written for which it speaks to the mystery of God moreover regarding the deep spiritual mysteries of the coming days and in addition the mystery of the coming days holds many vital elements that are for Israel, the church, and the last days. Therefore, I believe that there are three major key elements which should be considered by the Body of Christ and its members. The first of these elements is most important fact we must consider and remember of which many do not agree, however, recorded here in the book of Revelation that it contains a literal prophecy of the future events of the coming days. Secondly, the next key element is the definitions of the prophetic word of Revelation of Jesus Christ are very significant: I state this significant because that the prophetic word should be taken as the Lord’s prediction of the coming days should be taken literally by the members of the Body of Christ. Thirdly, how does this prophetic words or pattern pertain to Israel, the church, and the last days or one might say or interpret is as the coming days.
Furthermore, all of the book of Revelation is therefore the Lord’s prophetic word and should also be consider as the Lord’s perspective given to Him by His Father and that it holds a critical analysis that only He can provide for Israel, the church, and the last days for it hold the antidote that can heal our spiritual sickness. However, I can say with all honesty that within the Body of Christ today there are those individuals who hold extensive discussion over the book of Revelation and its apocalyptic literature and its meaning for the coming days. You will find that much of their discussion is over whom the author of the book of Revelation and the tribulation and the rapture. Therefore, again with the help of God’s Spirit I will try to bring a standard of everyday language regarding the Revelation of Jesus Christ and how the Lord is revealing unto His servants the revelation of the coming days. In addition, it is well to that that the apostle John was in the Spirit when he recorded and wrote the book of Revelation what he saw and heard to send to the seven churches in Asia.
MY BASIC UNDERSTANDING OR INTERPRETATION OF REVELATION
To begin my basic understanding of what I believe regarding the Revelation of Jesus Christ is not the understanding of most scholars and biblical theologians or even Christians. Therefore, it is well to let you know what the Spirit of God has brought unto my understanding about the book of Revelation. Where I would like to begin with my own personal understanding is that there are a number of principles and standards that must be made known first in my writing of beware of the coming days pass the word. First of all, you who read this writing must understand that the book of Revelation is full of numbers and each of these numbers hold vital key elements for the events of the coming days and these numbers each and every one of them contains or holds an understanding of God’s mysteries written by the prophets of old and by the apostle John. It is also well to note or make known that many writers call this book of Revelation as the book of seven.
Therefore, let us begin with the number seven for this number is used more that all the other numbers found in the book of Revelation. When you begin your study, you will find recorded in Revelation chapter one where that it begins with the seven Spirits before the throne of God Revelation 1:4. Then in Revelation 1:11 you find that Jesus tells John to write a book and send it to the seven churches in Asia. Next you find the seven golden candlesticks in Revelation 1:12 and then in verse 20 we find the seven stars and the seven angels of the seven churches.
The next number seven is found in Revelation 5 and the seven seals written on the inside and outside; in this chapter you also find the seven horns and the seven eyes of the Lamb Revelation 5:6. The next number seven is the seven trumpets in Revelation 8 moving from this chapter we now move to Revelation 10 we find the seven thunders or the voices of the seven thunders. Moving forward to Revelation 12:3 we find the seven heads of the dragon and the in Revelation 13:1 we find the beast with seven heads. In Revelation chapter 16 we find the seven last plagues, seven bowels, or seven vials of God’s wrath.
There are also many other numbers you will find in the book of Revelation which are very important part of understanding Jesus prophetic word about the coming days numbers like four, six, ten, 12, and 24. Going back to Revelation chapter six we find the four horsemen of the apocalypse in Revelation 6:1-8. Then you find the twelve gates, the twelve apostles, the twelve tribes of Israel. Then the next important number is 24 where you find in chapters four and five the twenty-four elders around the throne of God. Then the next important number we find is where God is sealing the 144,000 of His servants, next you find the number of 12,000 of each of the twelve tribes of Israel.
My reasoning and logic for listing all of these numbers in this basic introduction is of course to reveal unto you how the Lord God covers all of the issues of the Revelation that He gave unto His Son revealing the things which must shortly come to pass that our Lord is to reveal unto His servants. Therefore, the second reason is to point out especially that the number seven represents the perfection and completeness of God’s works and the fulfilling of the Revelation of Jesus Christ in the coming days. In addition, what the Spirit of God has revealed unto my own personal understanding that what the apostle John wrote or recorded of this prophetic word of Christ was given for Israel, the church, and the last days that the Lord’s servants may convey His unveiling of the coming days.
In this basic introduction and at the time of year when we coming remembering Jesus death and resurrection of how He our Lord brought life and brought it more abundantly, in addition, it was on the night of Passover that Jesus inaugurated the New Covenant that redeems us from our sins and makes us heirs unto the kingdom of heaven. From that day and that hour that our Lord Jesus Christ hung on the cross till this very day there is still that redeeming power of the Lord God to forgive sin and transform people’s lives.
Furthermore, when the Lord Jesus Christ to His disciples in Matthew 24 He told unto His disciples that no one knows not even the angels in heaven knows the day of His return. For what the Lord did say that it would be like the days of Noah when they were eating and drinking, they were marrying and given in marriage when the flood came. Therefore, this should be a clear picture of what is going to that place in the coming days. Nevertheless, as members or servants of the Body of Christ we should be able to see what is transpiring right before our very eyes the events that are taking place are the warning signs of the return of our Lord is at hand.
Our Lord also spoke unto His Disciples and gave them instruction how to be alert for no man knows about the Lord’s return only the Father Matthew 24:42. What I feel and believe what the Lord is stating unto every Christian is that we are to make ready and be watching for His return, and, therefore, I further believe that the book of Revelation holds all of the key elements to unveil or reveals unto us how we are to prepare for the coming days. For the Revelation of Jesus Christ makes it clear that our Lord’s Father is at the door getting ready to come down and pour out His wrath upon this earth. One of the key elements or key scripture that the Lord states in Matthew 24 is that when we see the abomination of desolation stand in the holy place spoken of by the prophet Daniel and he who read let him understand Matthew 24:15. What we the Body of Christ must take into consideration is when the Lord brought back the prophetic word of the prophet Daniel was to let us know that this was His way of unveiling the antichrist and the day and time of great tribulation.
Yet another way of addressing this abomination of desolation that Satan is standing in the temple or holy place and proclaiming that he is God. In addition, this chapter in the gospel of Matthew also makes it clear that there will come many false Christ and false prophets in His name so beware and take warning that there is many among us today. More and more today you hear about the words of the Lord recorded here in the gospel of Matthew and the role it plays in the Body of Christ today. To make my point we today use words like prophetic, revelation, and all of these words that we use are directed at the future or the end times.
It is well to note before I write any further that I believe that Matthew 24 also in addition holds and introduction to the prophetic word of the coming days before we get to the book of Revelation. Therefore, as we study the prophetic word of Revelation we will also need to refer back to this introduction of the Lord in the gospel of Matthew. Yes, from time to time I will be referring back to the gospel of Matthew as well as to the writings of the apostle Paul regarding the coming days. Chapter One
