I pray you have been blessed and in peace during the close of 2011. I am excited to see what the LORD brings in 2012! If you have not read "The Ten Minute Tribulation" please click here and get it now as we move closer each day to "The Final Seven Years".
1 Corinthians 3:2 (KJV)
I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it,......
Although those of us that believe the voice of the bible, and NOT the voice of the world, know that December 21, 2012 will NOT be the end of the world as many seem to be starting to believe, we do know that end time prophecies are quickly moving into place to prepare the way for end time events! Now if you are a Christian, that should NOT frighten you but actually it should make you leap for joy!
A pastor recently said to me in a conversation here in Texas "If you don't look at the tribulation correctly, you are already in it." Hard to deny the truth in that statement and Praise the LORD for that! For us the end of this age is only the beginning that we have been looking forward to for a very long time and I sincerely pray that you are holding fast to your faith as we approach it!
2 Peter 3:3-4 (KJV)
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers,
walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming?
for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
Please don't let another wrong prediction for December 21, 2012 touch your faith in the slightest!
Paul tells us clearly as Christians what to look for and how we will KNOW when the time is at hand!
2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJV)
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed,
the son of perdition;
It is very clear that this falling away MUST take place first BUT be sure it is well underway at this time!
A very interesting contract was signed by the churches in 1994 and was actually a reversal of the freedom of the church that came about 500 years ago. At that time many Christians lost their life as they tried to escape religious pressure being forced to believe what men were teaching for doctrines and began to seek the freedom to preach the Word of God as it really is!
It was only about 500 years ago when the catholic church was killing anyone that fought against it and preached what the bible had to say and NOT what the doctrines of the catholic church was saying. The
war that took place at that time when Christians broke away was a bloody bath but many were set free to learn what freedom in the knowledge of Jesus Christ really meant. The inquisition was so bad that when the torture that was taking place in the basements of some churches was discovered, they decided to blow the church up rather than to let any type of memory remain in it!
The intention here is NOT to bash catholics but rather only doctrines that are NOT biblical which take place in many denominations other than in the catholic realm. Unfortunately, many of these doctrines tend to originate in the Vatican.
One of the seven angels that holds the last vials that will wipe out this present world as we know it came to John in Revelation Chapter 17. This is a powerful chapter on what the angel calls "The Great
Whore" in verse 1. The woman that the bible speaks of here is a religious system that fornicates with the doctrines of God. If you feel a couple of horns starting to pop out on your head already, PLEASE hold on now, because we are ONLY talking bible and truth here and as always I am open to your comments as long as they don't come with one of those little pitch forks!
And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials,
and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the
great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
You will be glad to KNOW that you don't have to take MY OPINION on the mystery of this "Great Whore" because ALL of the answers are in the Word of God itself and if we continue to go through chapter 17 we will unfold the mystery of the "Great Whore".
Revelation 17:3 (KJV)
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness:
and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast,
full of names of blasphemy,
having seven heads and ten horns.
From the two verses above it is clear that this woman sits on many waters and is carried by a seven headed beast. So let's continue in the SCRIPTURES to understand the mystery. At first sight this all seems like a puzzle with so many missing pieces that there is no way to put it together but let's start putting this together and see how simple it really is. In verse 9 we learn that the seven heads are NOT exactly heads but rather mountains.
Revelation 17:9 (KJV)
And here is the mind which hath wisdom.
The seven heads are seven mountains,
on which the woman sitteth.
So now we know the seven heads are seven mountains where the woman sits but we still need to know who the woman is.
Revelation 17:18 (KJV)
And the woman which thou sawest is that great city,
which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
We also need to know about the waters that were spoke of in verse one.
Revelation 17:15 (KJV)
And he saith unto me,
The waters which thou sawest,
where the whore sitteth, are peoples,
and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
When we put all of this together we see that we have a city sitting on seven mountains that influences people of all nations and tongues. The rest is actually pretty simple! We just have to start checking "Cities on Seven Mountains" BUT REMEMBER THIS, this city on seven mountains HAS TO have religious influence and reign over the kings and presidents of the earth! I have already heard it said "Why can't it be San Francisco or some other city built on seven mountains because there are others, BUT, none of the others have this type of influence upon the religious system as we know it.
Yes that FOURTH BEAST of Daniel is still pushing it's way through the earth according to the scriptures! In fact, that FOURTH BEAST is the one that John spoke of that existed as he was given the
vision for Revelation 17!
Revelation 17:10 (KJV)
And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is,
and the other is not yet come;
and when he cometh he must continue a short space.
It is very easy to learn that the order of these Kingdoms are as follows.
1) Egypt 2) Assyria 3) Babylon 4) Medo-Persia 5) Greece 6) Rome 7) Not Yet
By the time of The Book of Daniel, Egypt and Assyria were already fallen and Nebuchadnezzers' dream and Daniels' vision of the Four Beasts begin with Babylon in Chapters 2, 7 &8. The interpretation of these four beasts are ALL given inside the same chapters IF you continue to read each chapter and look for the interpretations inside there! I find it very interesting that the symbol for Babylon is a lion with eagles wings but I'll let you figure that one out!
I pray you have a blessed close to 2011 and that the LORD bless you mightily in 2012 as we continue to search what the SCRIPTURES say and NOT what the people say!
God bless you and be sure to tell someone on the job about JESUS!
