PREPARING TO RIDE – THE SEALS OF THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder …” (Revelation 6:1).

At this point in the Revelation narrative, we have seen the Church Age come and go in the Seven Church Ages in the Dispensation of Grace. This Age of Grace concluded with the departure of all true born-again believers in Christ off of the earth in Revelation 4:1 before judgment strikes.

THE REVELATION 4:1 RAPTURE: THE CERTAINTY OF OUR DISAPPEARANCE

All of those who personally received Christ while on Earth during the Age of Grace are now in Heaven receiving (or in some cases losing) reward for their service performed (or not performed) for the Lord while on Earth during the time they were in their earthly bodies …

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

With that understood, it is most interesting to observe the divine and supernaturally influenced structure of the Bible that displays a providential fingerprint of authenticity. We see that fingerprint of authenticity on clear display when reading the judgments of the book of Revelation. As such, it should make it that much more certain in anyone’s mind that these judgments are certain to come to pass according to God’s prophetic plan as displayed in this most fearful and important book. This is what I shall take a quick look at before delving into the judgments of Revelation itself and the signs that are emerging of their soon arrival. That said and understood, it is extremely interesting to see this display of authenticity in the peculiar observation that the 22 chapters of Revelation correspond to the meaning of the 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet in their respective order. It is, therefore, fitting that the meaning of theThe golden letter Vav from the Hebrew alphabet. gold letter font Hanukkah. vector illustration on isolated backgroundvav, the 6th letter of the Hebrew alphabet corresponding to the 6th chapter of Revelation where the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride forth, be examined.

In scripture, the number six is a number that denotes physical completion. The creation of the physical world was completed in six days and a complete self-contained object consists of six dimensions: above and below, right and left, before and behind. In this primary meaning, we can begin to understand why the six days of creation became a prophecy of the following six millennia (see the article titled “THE END AFTER THE END OF 6,000 YEARS: HAVE WE ENTERED THE 7,000TH YEAR?” in the “Recommended Reading” section at the end of this article. Completion will come at the end of 6,000 years. In Revelation 6, the process of completion begins as Christ breaks the seals.

THE KEPLER STAR SUPERNOVA AND THE PROPHETIC BIRTH OF AMERICA

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years (Genesis 1:14). 

In 1604, a new star appeared in the night sky that was much brighter than Jupiter and dimmed over several weeks. The event was witnessed by sky watchers including the famous astronomer Johannes Kepler. Centuries later, the debris from this exploded star is known as the Kepler Supernova Remnant. The year, grouping of specific planets involved and the constellation of it’s occurrence suggests a providential announcement in the heavens of the fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy of the birth of the United States of America.  Continue reading “THE KEPLER STAR SUPERNOVA AND THE PROPHETIC BIRTH OF AMERICA”

GOD’S ANCIENT PLAN FOR LUCIFER’S DEFEAT

Adam was not an afterthought. Contrary to popular opinion, God did not create man because he was lonely. Furthermore, Adam’s transgression was not the original sin. Lucifer’s rebellion preceded the events of the Garden of Eden. Heaven must have been in turmoil after his fall. A third of the angels were effected. Some wonder why God didn’t just evaporate his foe and be done with it. Why does Lucifer continue to operate to this very day. He has created so much heartache and chaos. He has spoiled everything he touches. Why has God continued to put up with him and let him continue to exist? Continue reading “GOD’S ANCIENT PLAN FOR LUCIFER’S DEFEAT”

AMERICA THE VINEYARD AND THE YEAR 2020: THE 400 YEAR PROPHETIC CYCLE

This article is a continuation of the previous two articles in this series titled:

AMERICA AND A PROPHETIC FOUR DIMENSIONAL TRIP THROUGH THE TABERNACLE OF MOSES

THE KEPLER STAR SUPERNOVA AND THE PROPHETIC BIRTH OF AMERICA

In observing the prophetic picture set before us as it relates to the signs of the end times and how near to the return of Christ in the rapture event and the onset of the judgment of the Tribulation period is, numbers and nations are an obvious piece of the puzzle within the framework of the last days narrative. One can accurately say that God is a God of numbers, especially in dealing with the birth, purpose, life cycles, life spans and destinies of nations.

THE REVELATION 4:1 RAPTURE: THE CERTAINTY OF OUR DISAPPEARANCE

“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne” (Revelation 4:1-2).

Beginning with these verses, the Apostle John opens a new vision after the vision of the Seven Churches of Revelation 2 & 3 discussed in the previous nine articles. He takes us on a journey from this earthly existence into a heavenly sphere.

Through the pen of the aged apostle, we are given a view of the rapture and resurrection at the close of the Church Age. Continue reading “THE REVELATION 4:1 RAPTURE: THE CERTAINTY OF OUR DISAPPEARANCE”

EARTH’S DISPENSATIONS: A PROPHECY OF THE SEVEN CHURCHES OF REVELATION

In having just completed the eight part study of the prophetic time era prophecy of each of the Seven Churches of Revelation, as sort of an appendix article added to the end of this series, it is interesting to now observe and note that the Seven Churches of Revelation in chapters 2 & 3 are also a prophecy of Earth’s Dispensations. Not only do they address the concerns of certain local and historic communities and present a prophetic overview of the Church Age, they also seem to allude to the entire history of mankind as well. Continue reading “EARTH’S DISPENSATIONS: A PROPHECY OF THE SEVEN CHURCHES OF REVELATION”

THE SEVEN CHURCHES IN TIME AGES OF PROPHECY FULFILLMENT: CHURCH CANDLE 7 – THE AGE OF LAODICEA

This article is a continuation of the previous article titled:

THE SEVEN CHURCHES IN TIME AGES OF PROPHECY FULFILLMENT: CHURCH CANDLE 6 – THE AGE OF PHILADELPHIA

“And unto the angel of the church of Laodicea write …” (Revelation 3:14).

In these studies of the Seven Churches of Revelation 2 & 3, we have learned that the Apostle John picks up certain types and symbols that lie scattered throughout the Old Testament and traces them to their final conclusion. This series is currently exploring these metaphoric threads in the tapestry of time in order to give you a more comprehensive view of the Savior’s crowning achievement and ultimate victory.

As noted earlier, these letters to the seven churches set forth a pattern of church history, written in advance, a prophecy to guide us into the throne room of the omniscient (all knowing) creator – the one who declares “the end from the beginning” (Isaiah 46:10). Continue reading “THE SEVEN CHURCHES IN TIME AGES OF PROPHECY FULFILLMENT: CHURCH CANDLE 7 – THE AGE OF LAODICEA”

THE SEVEN CHURCHES IN TIME AGES OF PROPHECY FULFILLMENT: CHURCH CANDLE 6 – THE AGE OF PHILADELPHIA

This article is a continuation of the previous article titled:

THE SEVEN CHURCHES IN TIME AGES OF PROPHECY FULFILLMENT: CHURCH CANDLE 5 – THE AGE OF SARDIS

In the continuing eight part study of the prophecy of the Seven Churches in Revelation 2 & 3, we now come to part seven in a study of the sixth church mentioned in Christ’s prophecy to the Apostle John regarding these seven churches. This study will look at the Church of Philadelphia – the church of brotherly love. It’s prophetic significance reveals that the Philadelphian church represented the era of great revivals, beginning about 1727 and extending through the development of modern missions – as missionaries traveled around the world, taking the Gospel of eternal salvation through Christ alone to all nations. However, the door that was opened 300 plus years ago is about to close. Continue reading “THE SEVEN CHURCHES IN TIME AGES OF PROPHECY FULFILLMENT: CHURCH CANDLE 6 – THE AGE OF PHILADELPHIA”
