THERE ARE CERTAIN CONDITIONS THAT MUST HAPPEN BEFORE JESUS CAN RETURN, HE CANNOT HAPPEN ANY-SECOND, UNTIL THESE THINGS HAPPEN:
1. His enemies are made his footstool.
Heb 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; (KJV)
Heb 10:13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. (KJV)
2. THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS
Acts 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
3:20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. (KJV)
3. THE UNITY OF THE BELIEVER.
Eph 4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
4:13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
4:15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-- Christ--
4:16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. (NKJ)
4. THE FRUIT OF THE LATTER RAIN
(compare Joel 2) James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. (KJV)
The theme of the scriptures is that our salvation will bring us to a place of maturity and victory. Nobody wants to grow up, but the heirs are grown up sons (huios). We cannot reign in immaturity, in adolescence without breasts. The Church is immature and divided, we are not ready to meet Him.
God has given us His whole armour, telling us we need it against the devil in the evil day. Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. (KJV) We'll stand through it and not be overcome. God will keep us during the hour of trial just as He protected the Hebrew children, Daniel and Paul.
THE MARK of THE BEAST (KV)
Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, Rev 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. (KJV) Strong's # 5480 charagma (khar'-ag-mah); from the same as 5482; a scratch or etching, i.e. stamp (as a badge of servitude), or sculptured figure (statue): KJV-- graven, mark. (DIC)
THE FOREHEAD REPRESENTS THE WISDOM OF MAN.
THE MARK and number of man 666. The ultimate offering in the Temple of Solomon was also 666. The ultimate action of man. God also marks our heads for Himself.
MAJOR POINTS CONCERNING HOW GOD WANTS TO ESTABLISH HIS KINGDOM UNSHAKABLY
Heb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: (KJV)
IT WILL BE A WONDROUS KINGDOM
Zech 14:8 On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter. 14:9 The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.
HE IS KING
2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. Isaiah 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. (KJV) Isaiah 2:4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. (KJV) Amos 5:20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it? To those who do not believe, that day shall be utter darkness.
Amos 5:23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
6:1 Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!
6:3 Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near;
6:4 That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;
6:5 That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David;
6:6 That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph. (KJV) Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. great for some, terrible for others.
2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
3:1 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, (KJV)
Psalm 110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. Jesus is sitting at the Right-hand of the Father until I get His and my enemies under His footstool.
Psalm 110:2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
110:3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. (KJV) Again we see that the Lord intends to defeat the enemy for ME. Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool. 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. (KJV)
We are now under the spiritual rule of Christ, awaiting His earthly rule and the defeat of all His enemies when He returns to reign.
The Flood. The universal Flood of Noah's time was an expression of God's hatred and judgment of sin. In this event, He plunged His creation back to its original state of darkness and chaos with the waters covering the deep. as YOU CAREFULLY STUDY THIS PORTION, ask these questions. Who left the earth? Who was destroyed? Who kept safe? Who ruled on the earth?
Gen 7:19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 7:20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet. (NIV) Then He began again with a new head of the human race-- His servant Noah. The Flood became a sign of the future wrath of God, 2 Pet 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 3:7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 3:8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. 3:11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 3:12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 3:13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. 3:14 So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him. 3:15 Bear in mind that our Lord's patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. (NIV)
The first heaven and earth will eventually fall away and be replaced with the new heaven and earth. THE FLOOD defined the end-time judgment of His return in terms of the Flood and Noah's generation
Matt 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. (KJV)
There is no reference to the time of the coming, only to the manner of it. No one really knows about the end times. Everyone thinks they do. If someone has a date, don’t believe it! The Books will open at the end and we will know. 400,000 are born each day. The Global challenge for each believer is that only 100,000 are born again worldwide. Jesus came the first time to save, He comes the second time to judge.
THE KINGDOM IS ESTABLISHED BY JUDGMENT
Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. (KJV)
Joel 3:1 `In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, 3:2 I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. (NIV)
GOD OPPOSES DIVIDING UP THE LAND
3:3 They cast lots for my people and traded boys for prostitutes; they sold girls for wine that they might drink. 25:31 "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 25:32 "All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 25:33 "And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 25:34 "Then the King will say to those on His right hand, `Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (NKJ) Acceptance based on how they treated brothers of Jesus
NOT A THIEF IN THE NIGHT TO THE BELIEVER
DAY OF THE LORD, THIEF IN THE NIGHT
THIEF: kleptes ^2812^ is used (a) literally) metaphorically of "false teachers," <John 10:8>; (c) figuratively, (1) of the personal coming of Christ, .The unbeliever will be unaware, and in the dark. The use of the present tense instead of the future emphasizes the certainty of this glorious coming.... The unexpectedness of the coming of the thief, and the unpreparedness of those to whom he comes, are not ready.
THIEF COMES AT END OF THE DAY, CLIMAX IS SUDDEN
1 Thes 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
We know the conditions will be as those of Noah, we know the marks of the season. 5:2 For yourselves (believers) know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 5:3 For when they (the unsaved) shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail (birthpangs, earthquakes) upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5:5 Ye are all the children (huious or mature sons) of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch (be alert) and be sober. 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. Deluded with a false security and not alert.
1 Thes 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. With this armor we can comfort one another in death.
7 TRUMPETS Other foreshadowing of the wrath of the Day of the Lord are the downfall of Jericho with its seven trumpets, which announced the presence of God above the ark <Josh. 6:13>, and the seven-trumpet judgments of the book of Revelation <Rev. 8:2-21; 11:15-19>. These various destructions of Israel's enemies looked toward the final destruction of all of God's enemies in the Day of the Lord.
ONLY GOD’S KINGDOM IS UNSHAKABLE WE MUST BE BIRTHED INTO GOD'S KINGDOM, NOT DIE INTO IT.
1. SIMULTANEOUS CLIMAX OF GOOD AND EVIL WHEAT AND TARES
Matt 13:27 "The owner's servants came to him and said, `Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?' (NIV) A weed is an undesired uncultivated plant that crowds out desirable plants. Many times we wonder why there are so many false brethren in the church. Why do so many disappoint and betray. Where did they come from, why does God allow them to be in here. They choke my life. I’m good soil watered by God. The ground is stable, not hard hard. The birds can’t eat the seed. Why are there evil ones?
Matt 13:28 "`An enemy did this,' he replied. "The servants asked him, `Do you want us to go and pull them up?' (NIV) Let’s excommunicate them and have a pure church!! 13:29 "`No,' he answered, `because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. (NIV)
Matt 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'" 13:37 He answered, "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. (NIV) There is good seed in Me.
Matt 13:38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, (NIV) The root of refection can still be in the ground. The miserable tap root that causes bitterness to spread. Sometimes we give our life to dead issues and become discouraged. I must overcome this effect, unknowing that God will put it away at the end. 13:40 "As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. Everything that can be burned will be, all the chaff will be gone. That will expose us, cut us deeply, divide the bone from the marrow. 13:41 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. 13:42 They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear. (NIV) Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. (KJV) 2 Tim 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, :2 For people will love only themselves and their money; they will be proud and boastful, sneering at God, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful to them, and thoroughly bad. (TLB) 3:3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 3:4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-- (NIV) 2 Tim 3:5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. 3:6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 3:7 always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. (NIV)
CORRUPTION IS IRREVERSIBLE GOD'S SOLUTION IS A NEW CREATION
Rev 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (KJV)
TARES ARE WHAT THE ENEMY DID UNTIL THE END OF THE AGE
BOTH HAD SAME CLIMATIC CONDITIONS THAT RIPEN EACH
Final Judgments. In the end times, a basic order of judgment will prevail as the conflict between God and Satan comes to an end. There will be a time of great TRIBULATION <Matt. 24:4-26>, followed by the SECOND COMING <Matt. 24:27-30> and the judgment of the nations <Matt. 25:31-46; 1 Cor. 15:20-24>.)(NIB)
BIRTH PANGS WILL BE INTENSE AND WORLDWIDE
GREAT TRIBULATION SECOND COMING JUDGMENT OF NATIONS (MAT.24-25)
Isaiah 24:1 See, the LORD is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants-- 24:2 it will be the same for priest as for people, for master as for servant, for mistress as for maid, for seller as for buyer, for borrower as for lender, for debtor as for creditor. 24:3 The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. The LORD has spoken this word. 24:4 The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the exalted of the earth languish. 24:5 The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. (NIV) Isaiah 24:6 Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth's inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left. 24:17 Fear and the pit and the snare are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth. 24:18 And it shall be that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit, and he who comes up from the midst of the pit shall be caught in the snare; for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth are shaken. 24:19 The earth is violently broken, the earth is split open, the earth is shaken exceedingly. 24:20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall totter like a hut; its transgression shall be heavy upon it, and it will fall, and not rise again. 24:21 It shall come to pass in that day that the LORD will punish on high the host of exalted ones, and on the earth the kings of the earth. (NKJ) Isaiah 24:22 They will be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and will be shut up in the prison; after many days they will be punished. 24:23 Then the moon will be disgraced and the sun ashamed; for the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem and before His elders, gloriously. (NKJ)
