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.
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."
Do we want to hear, “Well done My good and faithful servant?”, or not. Knowing that even if we escape hell, we have basically failed to walk out His specific gifts and will for us in this life? The difference ENTIRELY DEPENDS on whether or not we have successfully overcome the influence of the flesh (the natural man apart from the presence of the Holy Spirit).
The Promised Covenant: The most important understanding needed regarding the prophetic future of the body of Christ
"Dispensationalism," is the Zionist doctrine of Jewish supremacy in the covenant intent of the Father. And the pre-tribulation "rapture" of the church was invented by Zionists claiming that the body of Christ will be removed prior to the resurrection of ALL the saints (why?) in order for the Father to test the Israelites during the 3.5 years of "Great Tribulation," and then redeem the remaining, overcoming "saints" of Israel on the "last day" resurrection of all the saints of all time who will then be grafted in to the Father's covenant fulfilled to national, ethnic Israel on that same day. (Or some other fantasy driven, Satanically inspired scenario).
Paul's prophetic instructions to his disciple, Timothy, though they applied to Timothy's generation, are revealed to be specifically and prophetically related to the end times body of Christ who have been, are now, and will be powerfully impacted by whether or not we hear and respond to these instructions.
The answer may not be what you think, and those who qualify may not be whom you might expect to qualify... Those who are "friends of the Lord," are, in the Lord's own words, those who hear, understand, and obey His voice spoken into their hearts (spirit-mind connection) by the Spirit of truth. What this produces, then, is the correct "rhema" understanding of the truth, covenant promises, and commands of the Lord resulting in the manifestation of acts of faith. Thus, it may be helpful to be trained in Hebrew and Greek, but no amount of intellectual training apart from "hearing" and "seeing" by the Spirit of truth will produce faith in our thoughts or our actions. It is, then, those who "hear" His truth, His covenant promises, and His commands" and, in intimate obedience, do what they hear by faith, His "bondservants" and "friends."
