REVELATIONS: It’s Practical Truths for Now. If we look at a picture we don’t just look at the corner of it, but the whole picture. Likewise, if there is an object being viewed, say a house or mountain, each viewer may have a different view, but their different views are not mutually incompatible. These principles apply to the Book of Revelations.
If something can be used, it can be misused; the Apocalyptic book of Revelations is no exception.…Indeed lots of people are busy misusing it: the Illuminati (for trauma-based mind control scripts & the manipulation of the masses—it is not an accident Hollywood & the tabloids are focused on Armageddon), by the Jesuits (against the Protestants), and since the Reformation by the Protestants, esp. SDA, (against the Catholics, whose Pope– pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey style– gets to be “The Antichrist”, and who supposedly runs the Illum. & the World Order), and last but not least…those who want to bury the treasures (talents) Christ gave his Bride, and sit around cheering on the world as it goes to hell, because,…because someone in their church gave them a free rapture ticket.
Christ told a parable about an employer who had to go away on a trip. He gave money to 3 different servants to hold in trust for him. The first two went & made profits for him, the third buried his in the ground. The point of the story is that the faithful servant will use what God has given him; the unfaithful person will not gain anything from what has been given him by the Lord. There are too many Christians sick with rapture fever, they are detached & wallowing in a helpless hopeless apocalyptic state of mind. 1 COR 4:2 also speaks about us having a treasure (spiritual treasure) in earthen vessels (the Bride of Christ). We need faith to overcome & keep our freedom in Christ, and righteous deeds, not more rapture creeds. (In my life, I’ve seen perhaps a dozen of such embarrassingly fail, including the book 88 Reasons Why the Rapture is in 1988.)
Listen to the tone of the Word here: “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” (a) “Rejoice!”…”All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”(b) Christ said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”(c)
a. PS 110:1-2 b. MT 28: 9, 18 c. 2 COR 12:9
In Revelation, I enjoy seeing the people singing the Song of Moses celebrating God’s triumph, & singing the Song of the Lamb celebrating Christ’s triumph, & hope myself to be an overcomer. Yes we can overcome evil w/ good; He has us here for a purpose. We will go from glory to glory. One message of Revelations is that the age old conflict between the seed of the serpent (evil) and the seed of the woman (the Creator) is ended.
Final thought: Who is going to use your talents but you?? While people want to improve their circumstances, they don’t prepare, they don’t improve and move forward on faith so that they can achieve. Throw your worthless rapture ticket away, and serve your purpose in life. (One final thought: Put your faith in God not the lottery.)
