Today will be the toughest Bible study I am most likely to ever record. In addition and also tough to talk about. Will be one of the dreams I believe I was given from God in accordance to Acts 2:17. Which also serves as verification that we are living in the end times.
If you have been following my teachings. You will remember the offer the Glorified Jesus Christ made to the church of Laodicea. To surrender the gold of the earth for heavenly gold. As well as covering their nakedness with garments of white.
Why do I mention this?
Well there is other places where there is a mention of white garments or robes in Revelation. Here is one of them:
Revelation 7:9 – 10 – After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands. And they were shouting with a great roar, “Salvation comes from our God who sits on the throne and from the Lamb!”
Many do not understand what is going one here.
I have been studying the end time prophecies most of my life. I realize there are multiple views on this. However, of all the commentaries I have read. Then through analyzing these studies by looking into the Greek. I have found the John Walvoord Prophecy Commentaries to be the one that follows a true logical formula to not only the book of Revelation but as well as the books of Mathew, Daniel as well as First and Second Thessalonians.
As a result of my own studies and taking into account the Walvoord commentaries. I have come to the following belief. And Yes I say “belief,” because I do realize many will not accept what I am going to say.
There are multiple raptures throughout the Tribulation period. As a result there are going to be a lot of people that are going to find themselves not in heaven standing before the Throne of God after the first rapture, but still here upon this earth.
This is actually fortified by the verses I just read, which I feel is a depiction of the second rapture, which occurs in the middle of the Tribulation.
Why I say this is due to the preceding verses in which the elect of the Tribulation receive the seal of God. These are named as members of the tribes of Israel. There is no way around this description. It clearly names 12,000 from each tribe of Israel and shows that these are the true 144,000 and that they are Israelites otherwise known as Jews. This is done just before or while the altar to the last Temple is defiled by the antichrist. Why they are sealed is something to be handled at other time.
Right now we are concerned about the number uncountable standing before the Throne of God in verse nine wearing white robes.
Six times there is a reference to white robes, linen or garments in the book of Revelation. The first is when Christ ask the seventh church to wear them (Rev. 3:18). The second refers to the twenty-four elders (Rev. 4:4). The third time they are given to the martyrs below the altar (Rev. 6:11). The fourth and fifth deal with the multitude before the throne (Rev. 7:9 and 13). And the sixth deals with what the armies that follow Christ upon His return to earth wear (Rev.19:14).
Now the majority of times white clothing is mentioned a theme is established.
Revelation 6:9-11 – When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of all who had been martyred for the word of God and for being faithful in their testimony. 10 They shouted to the Lord and said, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you judge the people who belong to this world and avenge our blood for what they have done to us?” 11 Then a white robe was given to each of them. And they were told to rest a little longer until the full number of their brothers and sisters—their fellow servants of Jesus who were to be martyred—had joined them.
Revelation 7:13-14 – Then one of the twenty-four elders asked me, “Who are these who are clothed in white? Where did they come from?” 14 And I said to him, “Sir, you are the one who knows.” Then he said to me, “These are the ones who died in the great tribulation. They have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb and made them white.
The theme is that of martyrdom. In chapter six those under the altar ask why they must wait and their answer is that not all the martyrs are accounted for. While in verse 7:14 we are told they are all the martyred. This too adds a chronological order to the book of Revelation. So those that stand before the Throne of God are all that is left of those upon the earth that turn to Jesus Christ after the first rapture, which takes place between the last verse of Chapter 3 and the first verse of Chapter 4. During the ensuing time of tribulation when the events of Mark 13:9-13 occur is what leads to the last of the martyrs enduring to the end.
This tells us that those left upon the earth after the first rapture are those that live in sin and Israel.
This must be said. There is a clear understanding of those that are counted amongst them are the “lukewarm.” They will not be in the first rapture, for they have been spit out of the body of Jesus Christ per His own words.
Now the question that needs to be asked is this:
Will all those that are the lukewarm then become martyrs?
That is not in my job description as teacher. I am not a prophet.
Can I speculate? Yes I can.
Doing so I will say that there will be those that will feel betrayed by God. Mainly due to a lack of true understanding of the Bible or its teachings within it. However it is not God who has done the betraying. It is they who have done so. Many will decide to receive the mark of Satan and accept the chip into the hand. So they can continue to live their lives in the worldly lusts they desire more than the eternal salvation offered to all. They will do this as those others that are lukewarm awaken to the errors of their ways and turn again to salvation and offer themselves up to the teaching of the gospel so those willing to hear will hear and turn to God through the blood of Jesus Christ. And they will willingly surrender to their fates as martyrs, for they know that in a short time they will at the very least be under the altar and at the most be counted among the uncountable as they stand before the Throne of God in a truly very short time. For they will know without any question or doubt that they are at the beginning of the Tribulation. And it best to die a martyr than to receive the mark or accept the chip.
This brings me to one of my dreams I was given in the late 1980s. In this dream I found myself in chains, which not only held my hands and feet but led to those in front and behind me. All in these chains were glad in grey. Which I now take to identify that we are lukewarm. Neither hot or white for God through Jesus Christ. Nor cold or black for those living in sin.
We were herded into a Walmart. Its shelves rifled and cleaned out. Those herding us were barley glad yet covered in tattoos. They laughed and mocked us as they pushed us to the back of the store, which had become our jail. A monument to our desires to have the riches of the world instead of the riches of salvation, as they moved us toward the back, to be held in this store as if mocking us for our stupidity.
It must be said that in the late 1980s tattoos were around, but they had not become as prevalent as they are today.
One of these people driving us stood upon the now empty racks. Jeering us as his lashed us with the wipe in his hands. As he yelled his insults at us a cheer came up from the back of the line. As I looked back I saw a boy no more than twelve come into view at the end of the isle. He was filthy and the beginning of tattoos was evident upon his skin. A huge grin spread across his face and his eyes were filled with a type of insanity. Just looking upon him sent chills into me. Then I noticed what he was carrying in one of his hands as he thrust it over his head.
Within his hand was a severed head of a woman, as he held it up by her blonde hair. Those herding us began to yell and cheer with delight at the sight of this. I went into shock as once again they began to move us to the back of the store.
Once we were at the back of the store we were given cots to lay upon. Showing us they we were not worth of the luxuries of this world. Then one by one those with me were taken to door at the back of the store. Then my time came and I went through these doors. What happened next I have no idea for at that moment all went black and it was that way from some time until I awoke from my dream. Something that has never occurred before or since in any of my dreams.
Now with that imagery upon your mind. I come to what we can do to change this from becoming a reality to those willing to listen. That being we must all diligently begin to study the Bible. As a foundation I give you these verses.
Acts 17:11 – 12 – And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth. 12 As a result, many Jews believed, as did many of the prominent Greek women and men.
In the KJV of verse 11
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
And searched – G350 – anakrino – to scrutinize, i.e. investigate, interrogate, determine [Strong’s]
The paraphrased interpretation of this word in the TDNT gives this impression:
That these people came at what was said by Paul and Silas with doubt. However they were so determined to find the truth that they found what these two men had said to be THAT TRUTH. So as a result they became saved and accept Jesus Christ as the true Messiah and their Savior.
My point?
That the people did not accept the words given to them without question as many do these days. They went to the scriptures.
The scriptures – G1124 – graphe – a document, i.e. holy writ (or its contents or a statement in it) [Strong’s]
The only complete scriptures at this time was the Tanakh. It is this they searched through and found within, what we call the Old Testament, the Truth. It is not merely the fact that they found the truth. It is that they thoroughly searched.
We are not to take the words given to us a fact, just because it comes from someone who has been given a type of authority over us. Which goes back to the time I mentioned when the Methodist Minister said the book of Revelation was a fairy tale.
We are to not just read the Bible but we are to research the Bible. I use the Strong’s Concordance and the Theological Dictionary of the New Testament. This is something we ALL should be using.
We should not just accept what a Minister, Pastor, politician, professor or new broadcaster tells us. We should never take anything on face value. Not even me. A few episode back I had said the message about Jesus being the vine was after His Resurrection. That was wrong, and I corrected it as soon as possible.
This goes to my point. I made a mistake. Why? Because I am human.
We should always verify for ourselves what is given to us. This is our duty as Christians. To seek out and find the truth and to show what is true to the world. Then if they doubt us they can research for themselves and they may come to the truth themselves.
This is how you end the lukewarm, which is my ultimate goal. For they will know the truth of the Gospel and realize they are living in sin and end it by not just seeking for the truth but who is the TRUTH. That being the true image of Jesus Christ our Savior and Messiah.
God Bless
