Revelation 7: Interlude

Revelation 7 is the slight pause before the Seventh Seal opens (Revelation 8). During this time, God seals 144,000 Jewish evangelists and multitudes are saved, who either die naturally or are martyred for their faith in Jesus.

Life Is Bittersweet

As I look to the horizon, seeing as far as I can see (which isn’t that far), I realize that life has seriously changed and not for the better and will continue on that path. We are experiencing extremely high fuel prices, which of course, affects everything else and the result is serious inflation. The folks in DC appear to be doing absolutely nothing to help the situation at all, but seem intent on allowing things to worsen. Who knows where it will end? Since I am not a prophet, I certainly have no way of knowing. God has not clued me on on the end result of this situation.

Hopeful or Hopeless?

So, while on one hand, it is fairly easy to become discouraged and feel somewhat hopeless about what is happening in the world, it is very clear that God is still moving, working in hearts and calling people to Him for eternal salvation. Evil cannot override God’s will. This is really what it’s all about. It’s not about politics and by focusing too much on that area, nothing will rob you of the hope that you have in Christ faster. His ways are not our ways. His timing is all His own. He is either sovereign all the time or He is not sovereign at all.

Less Than 8 Years and Counting…

Agenda 2030 is in the works. What is it? Everyone has an opinion and of course, conservatives who see the agenda as something that grants greatest control to globalists by removing freedoms for individuals are normally seen as “conspiracy theorists.” Those who support Agenda 2030 simply play the whole thing off as guidelines to promote a more sustainable world, which they support. This of course includes the reuse of the earth’s resources instead of wasting things. Frankly, I don’t know many people who ignore the fact that at least some form of conservation and recycling is important. We should be careful how they use the earth’s resources and not abuse.

Revelation 6: First Six Seals

The world is marching toward God’s judgment and that will not be averted. I wish it was, but if we consider that God’s righteous judgment not only judges all things evil, but gives people an opportunity to come to Him in repentance, then it is worth it in the short and long run.

Revelation 6 opens the seven-sealed scroll and we begin to the see its contents from the very beginning of the Tribulation. As each seal is opened, more of God’s judgment pours out onto an unsuspecting world that wants nothing to do with God.

Most Important Thing You Can Do

The goal of each Christian is to grow in our love for God. I believe as we grow in love for God we gain a strong desire to not do those things which will offend Him, thus we will be living in a way that causes us to fear (offending) the Lord. In essence then, loving God and having a fear of offending Him are really two sides of the same coin. They work hand in hand, in my opinion.

Loving God and the resultant fear of offending Him can only happen when we make the effort. It is effort in this life because of our inherent sin nature that always wants us to move away from God. We must instead use our effort and faculties to move toward God.

Narrow Your Prayer Focus

I’m suggesting we change focus so that the focus is more on things closer to home; family, friends, church people and those around you that you know are unsaved. It is far easier for me to believe that God hears those prayers and will respond favorably, as opposed to prayers to change the course of this world. His Word teaches us that this is not going to happen until everything has played out according to the perfection of His will.

Spirit of Antichrist Rising

The digitization of global society via 5G Internet/WiFi network is a major step in putting things in place that will ultimately allow the coming man of sin to not only gain control of this entire world, but will effectively be able to mold the way people think in real time.

Revelation 5: Lamb Takes the Throne

What we are seeing in Revelation 5 is the transfer of power to Jesus because He was found worthy due to the fact that He overcame every obstacle placed before Him without ever succumbing to the temptation to sin. Once the enthronement of Jesus is established and completed, a new song is sung (v9). There is always celebration after a monarch has been installed to celebrate that occasion. How much more will we see all of Creation praising the Lord for the fact that He is the only rightful King? John sees all of Creation offering praise to God in Christ (v13). This looks ahead to the day when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess (Philippians 2:10-11). There will not be one creature who will not offer praise to our rightful God. Think of all the people today who choose to ignore, denigrate and even deny that God exists. These people will – of their own volition – offer praise to the Lord. Their mouths will not remain quiet. They will have no option.

Perspective: Because He…

So where do we go from here? What does the Christian do to overcome the negativity, the bad news, the effects of Satan being allowed to control more and more of global society? There is only one thing I am aware of and I will admit I’m not great at putting it into practice…yet, but I am working on getting there.
