PostSubject: What is The Book of Revelations About?   04/01/19, 12:20 pm

The Book of Revelations is completely different to any other book in the Bible in as much as it's not in chronological order.

It contains direct instructions from Jesus Christ to John the Apostle through a vision given to him when he was on the Isle of Patmos in exile from anti-Christian persecution under the Roman emperor Domitian, for the last generation living on Earth at signs to look for regarding the lead up to, and what to expect through the last 7 years before the coming of Christ.

The Book starts with Jesus Christ dictated letters through John to the 7 churches in Asia Minor.  Each message to each Church was different.  One Church had become lukewarm, a bit like the churches of today.  Another had become prideful.  Another had been following Christ's teaching perfectly, and so on.  You get the picture.  It was a way of Jesus showing that He saw all, the good and the bad.  Letting them know He was always with them and that he would be keeping his covenant with them.

After John had written down the 7 letters he was then shown all the prophesies for this generation.  For the signs to watch for that would show the coming of Christ to take his throne on Earth for his 1000 year reign is close.

We know that the times are now because since 1948 many of the signs are becoming fulfilled.

We were told that the leading up to the 2nd coming would be like the labour of a woman giving birth.  They would start slowly with long gaps in between events and as the time drew nearer the birthing pangs would get closer together and stronger.

You will be aware that over the later part of the 20th century there have been several predictions of "The End is Nigh" sort of thing.  This is because some enthusiasts could see the signs beginning to happen and falsely predicted dates and ignoring Christ's warnings of....

Jesus Christ said wrote:
Revelation 16:15 King James Version (KJV)

15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

Mark 13:32 says,
Quote :
“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” The disciples asked Jesus the same question just before He returned to heaven. At that time, Jesus told them it was not for them to know the times or seasons which are in the Father’s authority. Therefore, Jesus may come back tomorrow, next month, next year or 100 years from now. So for you and me it means always be ready for the second coming of Jesus Christ. Watch and focus on Jesus because the devil is seeking to distract mankind from understanding the signs and closeness of Jesus’ coming.


My point is, that those that cried the "end is nigh" and giving dates are like a man rushing his pregnant wife to hospital with braxton hicks contractions.  Now we are in 5 minute labour pains.

I will at some point write a post, or may post a decent video instead, of all the signs so far that we have lived through along with those we still need to keep watch for.

The first sign was in 1948 (coincidentally my birth year), when the United Nations voted to give Israel back to the Jews.  Although it wasn't until 1967 that they started to physically return there.

The most recent sign was a week before Christmas just gone, on the last day of hanukkah, when the Jews made the first sacrifice of a lamb after they had finished building the first sacrificial alter in 2000 years in preparation for the building of the new 3rd Temple.

During John's vision he was shown 7 trumpets being blown one after the other, 7 bowls filled with Gods wrath and a book sealed with 7 seals.

Each one of those tells of an event that will happen shortly after each other each event getting closer and closer to the last until like the plaques of Egypt they will follow each other within days or even hours, leading right up until Jesus comes to earth and the final battle between good and evil will be here on Earth.  After which Jesus will then take up his throne in the new Jerusalem for the following thousand years.

The Book of Revelations being the only book in the Bible that isn't in chronological order makes it hard to know exactly when what is called Jacob's Troubles or The Tribulation will exactly begin.  But we do know that one of the signs that it has begun is in the building of the 3rd Temple.  So the fact that the Jews have already erected a sacrificial alter and made a first sacrifice means that they are close to begin building the 3rd Temple.

A quick run down on Jacobs Troubles.  

We do know for certain that Jacobs Troubles/The Tribulation, will last for a dead 7 years.  This 7 years will be in two equal stages of 3.5 years each.  

A lot will happen during the first 3.5 years regarding politically and religiously.  It's almost certain that a world leader will be chosen during that time, along with one world finances and a one world religion.  This future world leader is what Christians call the Son of Perdition. 

At some point how we handle money will be changed. There will most certainly not be any cash existing and it will be likely that rather than use cards we will be asked to allow a chip implant in our hands and in some places they may use scanners for our eye to enable us to do away with keys and security locks.

This will all be done under the guise of security and will at first be voluntary.  At some point of course this will also have the ability to track us along with all other personal details.  Once again, as with all the cameras we now have on every street, this will also be done under the name of catching criminals and terrorists.

At some point this will become compulsory andpossibly anyone that refuses to have it done will find themselves in prison.

Jesus tells us .....

Quote :Revelation 13:16-17 King James Version (KJV)

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.



We have no idea yet if the above chip or eye scanner will be what Jesus is referring to, but it is highly likely that it is because we are also warned that not taking the mark will cause us great hardships and possibly even physical death.

We are also warned that we mustn't take the mark or we will suffer the 2nd death.  No one can either enter Heaven or the new 1000 year kingdom if they have the mark.

One world religion will be created will of course incorporate all three main religions of Christian, Muslim and Jew along with all other religions.  All will agree to this because they will be told that they can all continue with their own practices but share religious buildings and so on all in the name of peace.  

Sunday worship will become mandatory for all just as when the Romans created their own form of Christianity and drew all the pagans in by instead of worshiping Christ they secretly were worshiping Isis and her boy child by just changing her name to Mary.

Already many protestant denominations are re-joining (going back to) the Catholic Church having been promised to be allowed to hold protestant services as normal.

True Biblical Christians, that know their eternal life is at stake will not accept the mark nor the new religion.  In the second half of the 7 years many Christians will be persecuted.

Midway through the 7 years and after the 3rd Temple is complete, something drastic will happen that will set off a chain reaction throughout the world thereby leading to what is called "The Great Tribulation" which will last through the following 3.5 years.

The new world leader will suffer a mortal head wound.  Whether he will actually die and doctors bring him back or whether he will come so close to death that his life signs don't register for a short while we don't know.  But on recovery he will have suffered damage to one of his eyes.

But during the time he is clinically dead something else will happen.  Two important things happened to Jesus, one on his water baptism by John the Baptist, He received His ministry direct from God with the Holy Spirit.  The second thing that happened was that he died and was resurrected.

When the Son of Perdition dies, on his resurrection he will receive his ministry direct from Satan with his spirit.  Satan mirrors everything Christ does.  From there on in he will be the unadulterated anti-christ.

At that point he will create an idol of himself that all will be forced to worship, enter the 3rd Temple and claim himself the Messiah.

As I said above, Revelations is not in chronological order so it's hard at this point to know if the persecution of Christians will come before or after the anti-christ declares himself.  It is likely that it will be after.  

That's a rough outline of the Tribulation but we know a great deal more that has been prophesied which will following in other posts.

Suffice it to say that all the seals will have been broken and all the bowls of God's wrath poured out, along with 6 of the trumpets having been blown by the time it comes for the last trumpet to sound which will give warning of Christ arriving for the final battle and to set up His Kingdom.
