Many great mystery's, and prophecy has been sealed, as Daniels Prophecy was sealed, until these last days, but notice, the book of Revelations was never to be sealed, so we have all we need to understand all that is going to happen in the tribulation, we have the unsealed words of Jesus concerning the birth pains. Matt 24, Mk 13, Lk 21, none of this is sealed. Thessalonians 1 and 2 are not sealed. We have what we need to know.
I have written before, so many non- believers and believers alike, always say, No man knows the day or hour, this as I have taught, deals with the exact day, as the Greek points out a given short time frame, it is the non --believers who do not know, the believer is, should be in the know. The N.T. clearly teaches, we the believer will not be caught unaware, we do not know the exact day Jesus returns, but we are given the unsealed truth of all that leads up to it. LK said when you see all things coming on the earth , lift up your head for your redemption draweth near, so even in the end , right before the second coming we are in the know. Understand this when dealing with nay- sayers, non- believers say, those who do not understand the unsealed prophecy's.
The thing I want to point out is a good word, a comforting word.
Every tear shall be wiped away, the last tear drop to fall in all history is not far off. Think of that , the last tear, that is amazing, all will be made new.
You may be going trough confusion, perplexity, a living hell , trials , tribulations, but we win as you read the end of the story. Our lord will soon come to save us and take us home, and we will have eternal life of joy with no tears.
We shed many tears, but soon we will not. Paul said there is no comparison , the great things he was suffering, in the grand balance of eternal life. We must get to the point where we understand, soon it will be all over.
Think on this, let it comfort you, soon the last tear drop in history will be shed, we must hang on to this word in hard times.
It will be hard, America is going to hell fast, but we are not, if we are his, also, every tear you shed in prayer and sadness, is put in the lords bottle of remembrance, that teaches us not one tear we shed , this side of Glory goes to waist. Your tears beloved go into the bottle of remembrance, as your name is written in the book of remembrance, The lord remembers, he knows right where you are, everything that is putting fear in you, guilt over set backs, all is in the masters hand, we are engraved in his palm, and what a place to be, in the holy lords hand, he has us covered.
It is true very hard days are ahead, but fear not, as we are under the watchful eye of our lord. Let us stand strong in grace, faith, and know, the lord has everything under control. Yes dear reader soon , very soon we will have no more memory of all we are going through, and all tears will be wiped away for eternity, what a blessed promise to know soon, we all will shed the last tear drop in history, it is coming soon, our redeemer lives and he will bless you and keep you in the days ahead, rest in this word, and you can take it to the bank,( The Only True To Big To Fail Bank LOL) it is true, we win, we will be OK, our heavenly father loves us so much, how can we fear, he knows your name, he knows your place you live, he hears your prayers, and he collects every single tear.
Mat 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Watch, therefore ... - This is the scope or design of the whole parable. This is the great truth that Christ wished to inculcate, and all parts of the parable are to be interpreted in reference to this admonition. Like the virgins, many are professedly going to meet the Bridegroom - the Lord Jesus Christ. Like the coming of the bridegroom, his advent will be sudden. It will be to many at an unexpected time.
Many, even professing Christians, will be engaged in the business of the world; thoughtless about eternity; not expecting his approach, and not prepared. They will only profess to know him, but in works they will deny him. So death will come. All approaches of the Son of God to judge men are sudden, and to many unexpected. So many, when they shall see him coming, at death or the judgment, will begin, like the foolish virgins, to be active, and to prepare to die; but it will be too late. They that are ready will enter in, and heaven will be closed forever against all others. The “coming” of the Saviour is certain. The precise time “when” he will come is not certain. As the virgins should all have watched and been ready, so should we. They who are Christians should be ever watchful; and they who are not should lose no time to be ready, for in such an hour as they think not the Son of man shall come.
Note Orthodox end time theology, Barnes says I put it in red, His Advent, his second coming not a secret rapture. Notice in the verse so many use, the main them, his the lords people are on watch, and it will not take us by surprise, amen.
1Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
1Th 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
There you have it, from the word, that , that day should overtake us as a thief, we are in the know, as we are known, so be full of comfort this day and know nothing will overtake you, nothing aside from the will of the lord, he knows best, he knows who will be going to glory and those why are lft behind, the real deal from the word.
I have been doing a lot of weeping, as some of you had, when the lord spoke into my spirit, this grand insight, what comfort and joy it gave me, may it do the same for you today, dear one in Christ
