In spite of numerous conspiracy theories, most of which have at least some basis in the truth, our understanding about who or what is in control is not easily discerned. Many Christian believers are observing with their intellects, and sensing in their spirits, that things are going terribly wrong in the world, and that whatever kingdom of God influence has existed in the world through the body of Christ is now losing ground rapidly. But our understanding in this regard is vague, and it is time for us to “see” with spiritual eyes and “hear” with spiritual ears what the Spirit of truth wants to reveal to us concerning this issue so that we will understand and respond appropriately, by faith, to the voice of the Lord during these difficult days.
Our division into hundreds of denominations and millions of rabbinic interpretations of scripture demonstrates a massive disconnect from the Spirit of Truth who was sent to guide us into all truth. We have normalized this division among us, but the Lord has given us specific instructions concerning how we are to receive and respond to His truth, covenant promises, and commands if we are to walk by faith as intended by the Father.
Satan, the Father of Lies, has conspired against the people of God from Adam forward, and he does this through the introduction of false doctrine, and especially false doctrine concerning the time of the end, into the body of Christ by unknowing Christian leaders through the ages who have been deceived concerning all doctrine. Yet, the most dangerous false doctrines for this present generation concern the END TIMES. And according to the Lord's own prophecy a MAJORITY of His people will fall away from faith during the 4th, 5th, and 6th seal events because they were misled by popular, but false, prophecies introduced into the body of Christ by deceived men.
The intent of God for the body of Christ is for us to be fully engaged in the warfare of the Kingdom of God against the Beast Kingdom as we bring the lost to faith and teach them to obey everything that He has commanded us. We are also COMMANDED in Ephesians 6:18 to engage in spiritual warfare with Satan and his beast kingdom as we bring the lost to faith and as we protect our fellow believers against the continual assaults of the beast kingdom against our fellow members of the body of Christ.
Ephesians 6:18 is like a CODE RED message from Paul as he defines prayer in militaristic terms after telling us in verses 1-17 that we are engaged in continuous warfare with spiritual forces of evil intent on killing, stealing, and destroying as revealed to us by the Lord (John 10:10).He doesn’t see this warfare as an occasional raid by terrorists. He sees it more like constant trench warfare. Kill or be killed. But it seems like many in the church are scarcely aware that this warfare is taking place, though it is evident all around us, and many are already suffering as POWs with subsequent consequences for themselves, their families, their friends, and their church fellowships.
So, who is this mysterious group having endured the 4th, 5th, and 6th seals of “tribulation”? Are they 12,000 literal Jewish male virgins from each of twelve tribes of Israel? If so, what is their purpose, and how did they suddenly appear on the scene without any identifiable relationship to the events taking place prior to their appearance? The truth concerning this prophecy has been unsealed and revealed for the benefit of the generation of the body of Christ who will experience it.
If I had to single out one end times prophecy that is more important than all the rest, I would pick the parable of the ten virgins that the Lord used to illustrate important details of His answer to the disciples’ question, “When will these things happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
The Lord’s stinging message for the Laodicean “type” of church seems to apply to much of the church today. But who will confess it? And do we really know and understand what the metaphor of “lukewarmness” means so that we can respond appropriately to it?
Daniel's 70 Weeks prophecy perfectly and completely confirms that Christian believers who persevere during "tribulation" (a.k.a. the "wise virgins") will be sealed during the interim between the 6th seal and the 7th seal, and that it is these who will bring in the multitude during the 3.5 years of "great tribulation" in the face of the worst Satan can do through his beast kingdom. For these, then, "great tribulation" will be a glorious time to be heralded throughout all eternity. It is for these that the Lord has given me the revelatory understanding presented herein.
Paul's exhortation to his beloved disciple, Timothy, was given to him by the Lord and written for OUR instruction upon whom the fulfillment of the ages has come. Yet, many born again believers today are primarily responding and conforming to the expectations and traditions of their denomination, their church, or their intellectual understanding of scripture. Yet, our relationship with the Lord Himself is to be HIS disciple, HIS bondservant, hearing and understanding His rhema truth, His covenant promises, and His commands in a direct personal sense.
