Rev 14: The Lamb and Proclamations

One of the biggest points that this text drives home is that God is GOD and there is no other! The fact that things are done according to God’s timing and for His glory often make us question His involvement in the affairs of humanity. However, it becomes exceedingly clear from Scripture that God is not only involved in our affairs (in our lives, locally, statewide and federally as well as globally), but in the affairs of all people throughout the globe! Our God not only holds all these things in His extremely capable hands, but nothing escapes His notice. Nothing.

Blasphemy Openly Increasing

We should actually rejoice at a person who becomes angry at the truth we present! That sounds odd, but if they are angry, they are actually still dealing with the issue of God because their conscience still works. Once they’ve pushed beyond it so that their consciences become seared and God literally gives them over to the lies they have chosen to embrace (Romans 1:24). At that point, they have no trouble with actual truth anymore, fully convinced the lies they believe are truth.

An Eternity of Regrets

I cannot imagine it. Living here one moment then being caught away through death into eternity where the truth is unavoidably clear and present. There is no trying to squeeze out from under it. No chance of pushing it away. It is stark and foreboding in its consistency and presence for all who await their judgment. It will not be denied as was so seemingly easy for so many to do in this life.

Revelation 12: Satan Out, Woman Persecuted

Part of the reason (if not the main reason), Satan is literally beside himself with tremendous wrath is due to the fact that he knows his time is short and since he knows the Bible better than any human being alive today, he knows how it will end for him. He also knows he has no chance of receiving the salvation that God has only offered to those made in His image. It simply will not happen. He knows it and knows full well where he will end up. I’m sure though he would like to take as many human beings as he can with him to that Lake of Fire. So, he continues his war against God, His Creation and His believers.

Revelation 12: Woman, Child and Dragon

So we are introduced to the following: a woman, who turns out to be pregnant, a red dragon with numerous heads and horns along with a crown on each head. As far as the dragon is concerned, we also learn that this same dragon is one who swept 1/3 of the stars of heaven (angels), so this is an obvious reference to Satan himself. Satan stands before the woman who is about to give birth because Satan’s intent is to totally destroy this child. Satan clearly understood who this child was to be so he intended to stop Him who would eventually become the King of kings and who would reign with a rod of iron, a reference to the coming Millennial Kingdom.

Revelation 11: Two Witnesses and 7th Trumpet

The big question that often arises related to these two men is who are they? Well, the short and best answer is that we do not know! There is absolutely no sense in trying to figure it out either. God has not told us therefore He doesn’t think we need to know. All kinds of guesses have been made but I tend to agree with Dr. Thomas Constable who essentially says that it is likely God will simply raise two unknown men for this particular ministry when the time comes. Certainly, God empowers them as He did Moses, Elijah, Elisha and others, but to suggest that these will rise from the dead is a bit of a stretch. Of course, God can do this if he wishes, but I’m more included to think He will simply prepare two men at that time for that ministry.

Always Trying to Cancel God

The prophet Micah was rebuffed and rebuked for daring to tell the people what God wanted him to tell them, but what the people preferred not to hear. The kings, priests and average Israelite tried their best to “cancel” Micah because of his message. They pushed back by demanding that he stop telling them what he was telling them. In essence, they were ultimately trying to cancel God.

Consider Your Ways!

Christian, is your house in order? Are you focused on God, not the issues of this world? Sure, feel free to notice what is going on but do so through the lens of Scripture. God wants our hearts. He wants us to worship and adore Him, to give Him thanks for everything that comes our way. Are you doing this? If not, please repent of that and get right with God.

Euthanizing Common Sense

Today, the Left sees themselves as virtuous “servants” but in reality they serve the lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11), which ultimately means they serve themselves. They do whatever it takes to make themselves feel good, but in actuality, they are literally walking dead, having terminated common sense via wokeness long ago. This is part of God’s judgment on them as Paul clearly delineates in Romans 1. The saddest part is them thinking they have taken the high road when in fact, they are actually taking the low or wide road that leads only to more lies, heartache, despair and ultimately, eternal separation from God.

Micromanaging Mayberry

There are numerous dictators highlighted in Scripture that evidence so much evil, corruption and a desire to control that they stand out as types for the coming Antichrist. One such individual is Antiochus Epiphanes IV. We actually read about this unnamed historical figure several places in the book of Daniel, but it is far more pronounced in Daniel 11:1-35. Here, Antiochus Ephiphanes didn’t seem to care about money, but gathered it for use as a tool. He’d bribe people with it and got folks to do his bidding. Beyond this, he could flatter the clothes off your back with his words and demeanor. He had a habit of coming alongside of someone, taking them into his confidence and making them feel extremely important and needed. Once he had gained their respect and admiration, he thought nothing of throwing them under the bus.
