A Revelation of the Deeper Things of God on how the worst of times can be the best of times. An encouraging message for people of faith from God’s Word. In the last days, “…the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.”(A) Meanwhile, “the Foundations of the earth do shake…”(B) Dear friend, it is not out of adversity & hard times, but rather during adversity & hard times that God’s faithful servants have learned the deeper things of God.
DEEP ARE THE WORLD’S WOES & DEEP ARE THE KINGDOM’S JOYS. The Psalmist sang, “Out of the depth have I cried unto thee, O Lord.” (PS 130:1) But what depth does the man of God refer to? The man of God was deep in trouble on a carnal level and deep in God’s truth on a spiritual level. The carnal man may run to the rocks to hide, the spiritual man to the Rock of all Ages, i.e. Christ. The psalmist was calling out from a position deep in the Spirit! “I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in His Word do I hope.” (PS 130:5) And his waiting on God was blessed. As the Word teaches us, “…neither…principalities [Illum. kingdoms empowered by fallen spirit princes], nor powers [materialism, greed, the collective spirit of an area],…nor depth…shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”(C) It doesn’t matter how deep we are in, if we are also deep into God.
IS OUR FUTURE OUR HOPE OR DESPAIR? We were taught to pray, “Father, give us our daily bread.” Hold onto that thought for a moment. Christ (by the way he used Scriptures) repeatedly taught us that God’s revelations in the Scriptures often have deeper profound levels of understanding. Christ gave his beloved John a divine revelation of 4 horses (a white, red, black & a pale greenish horse) each with a different kind of apocalyptic rider.(D) Then the Word makes it clear that these 4 represent in order: conquering power, war, famine, disease & death. This indeed is the pattern that the Illuminati has structured. They take control of things; then they create war, which causes famine which in turn causes disease & death. The third horse is black with a rider carrying scales; & the Lamb’s voice says, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and 3 quarts of barley for a denarius; & do not harm the oil & the wine.”
If we view REV 6:6 on the surface it is easy to realize that REV 6:6 speaks of basic food (bread) being expensive (inflated prices for basics), and oil & alcohol (non-essentials to life) still cheap. Obviously this is a time when food is so limited it is strictly measured (perhaps rationed).(E) Another thing people have remarked is that when the black horse comes, then everything is commercialized with inflexible precise controlled prices. Indeed, one of the World Order’s deceptions about commodity prices is that they follow impersonal economic laws that like natural laws can’t be stopped. The symbolic use of scales to picture famine is also used in other verses.(F) Another common observation is that the more luxurious items are still available for the rich. The wealthy are not hurt.
A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING. Yes, the wealthy are not hurt in REV 6:6…they can still get their oil & alcohol. But if we look spiritually deeper at REV 6:6, we see a message of hope! There are the carnally wealthy & the spiritually wealthy, and the message holds true for both in different ways. There is a dead sea scroll that writes about a believer’s Feast of Oil & Wine. The wording in verse six is “me adikeses”—literally don’t touch (don’t hurt) the wine. But what does wine & oil symbolize spiritually? We begin to see the meaning when we realize that the good Samaritan poured wine & oil onto the man he was consoling & healing. In Joel 1:10-12 we see the same symbols: wheat, barley & wine…and wine represents joy. In PS 104:14-15, we get these symbols again: “That He [God] may bring forth food from the earth, And wine that makes glad the heart of man [Joy], Oil to make his face shine [the anointing of God’s Spirit], and bread which strengthens man’s heart [faith].” So wine, oil & bread are symbols of joy, the anointing, and faith. The spiritually wealthy (during the time of the Black horse’s famine) do not have their joy & anointing touched!! REV 6:6 is a prophetic pattern, and while no one can find a specific point in history that exactly matches it, the pattern has repeated itself in general terms many times. Another deeper meaning is that it is God’s voice quoting the price for basic bread. God plays a role in famines & daily food prices.(G) In PHIL 4:22, Paul writes, “All the saints salute thee, chiefly they that are of Caesar’s household.” At times we lose track where God works…even in the middle of the World Order’s palaces!
DYNAMICS OF GLOBALIZATION. The World Order is an oppressive harlot just as in the beloved John’s day. They are fraud spin doctors & fraud managers. People think they are free as they are given the “freedom” to believe any religious lie as truth. The global religiosity has personalized designer religions to choose from, just as long as you give the World Order their proper authority…as Rome demanded. In Rome, the farms got bigger & bigger, as rich men used more slaves to get things done. Today, we have substituted machinery for slaves, but ag-business follows the same trends as Roman times…money, not health. The Roman elite preferred making luxury items like wine, rather than growing wheat for the masses. This same greedy trend can be seen today, and is hinted at by REV 6:6’s wording. But why should anyone care about you…without God as your Creator…you are merely a freak of nature that happened to have happened due to genetic copying mistakes. You only have economic value—no dignity, no intrinsic worth…you are a consumer, and in the economic troubles ahead, just like in the Great Depression, luxury items will still be in abundance for the rich, while the poor wonder where their next meal will come from. They may limit our food, but never our spiritual food, for we will always have the power to look to our heavenly Father.
THE FAITHFUL SERVANT OF GOD. The Word says, “The end of all things is at hand; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.”(H) Yahshua told a parable of the faithful & sensible servant…who gave the Master’s household “food at the proper time”. This is parallel to the prophecy in REV 3:21, “He who overcomes, I will grant to sit…” Responsible servants of God will be good stewards of His gifts & resources. They will continue to bless the Master’s household until he returns as in the parable. And they will not have their joy (wine) nor their olive oil (anointing in the Spirit) touched. They will continue to share their living water. Spiritual food will come during the time of trouble at the proper time. It will not be out of adversity & hard times, but rather during adversity & hard times that God’s faithful servants will learn the deeper things of God.
MAY OUR HEAVENLY FATHER RICHLY BLESS YOU MY FRIEND.
