This message from Paul to his disciple, Timothy, was written for us, upon whom the fulfillment of the ages has come, and the instructions given to Timothy by Paul are applicable to the body of Christ today in a greater sense and application than ever before, because we have come to the time: when they will not tolerate sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance with their own desires,…(denominationalism and specific popular false prophets)…and they will turn their ears away from the truth and will turn aside to myths.
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.
What we do not want to hear or believe is that it is the "head" nation of ISRAEL, the nation that birthed our Lord, that will be the world headquarters of the Beast Kingdom during GREAT TRIBULATION.
This is the joy of our relationship with the Lord that He desires for each and every one of us to routinely experience in all that we think, say, and do.
"Head" in prophetic scripture refers to an authority, and in the end times scenario the "head" nation of Israel, having been "killed" in 70AD by Prince Titus of Rome who sacked Jerusalem, tore down the temple with not one stone left on top of another, and sent the Jews into diaspora among the nations is the "head" with a deadly wound that came back to life in 1948 and will be the "head" nation from which the Antichrist Man of Sin will rule the world with an iron rod.
Any honest examination of the world economic systems, governmental systems, educational systems, environmental systems, agricultural systems, and communication systems, to name a few, will reveal that man’s “wisdom” is inadequate for delivering us from disaster. Yet, many in the church today are totally dependent on those systems for their future well-being, their fulfillment in life, and their security.
Strangely a majority of the present day body of Christ have completely ignored the prophetic understanding concerning end time events held by a majority of the FAMOUS prophets, pastors, and teachers in the body of Christ, including the Lord's own immediate disciples. As an example, Matthew 24 and 25 completely denies any possibility of a pre-tribulation "rapture" of the church prior to "tribulation" and/or the 3.5 years of "great tribulation."
