The Revelation Road

Worthy Is The Lamb That Was Slain

We are presently living in the closing days of the church age. The next great event in God's prophetic schedule is the Rapture of the Church. The Lord Jesus Christ himself will come to remove his Church from the Earth just prior to the coming seven years of Tribulation. There are two primary indicators that show us where we are in the Lord's process of events. Israel is regathered into in the Promised Land (Ezekiel 37:1-9). And, the Church is hastening into apostasy, departing from the faith (2 Thessalonians 2:3).

The Church rapidly and eagerly is withdrawing from the Bible and thus from God. People don't have time for the Lord who loves them. "And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." (Ephesians 5:2)

Yet, there is hope. The Blessed Hope is that the Lord will come one day for his own. "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ." (Titus 2:13) He will rescue them from his wrath that he will pour out upon the Earth. The Church, which is the Body of Christ and the Bride of Christ, is not destined for wrath. The Tribulation is God's wrath and he will rescue the Church before the seven years of Tribulation. "And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come." (1 Thessalonians 1:10; see also 1 Thess. 5:9 ) 

Christians need to be prepared to meed the Lord. This means working for Christ while we wait for him. "For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come." (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10)

Those who yet don't know the Lord as Saviour also need to get ready; "Prepare to meet thy God". "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."
(1 Timothy 2:5) 

May you benefit from these studies as you make a move closer to the Lord. "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded." (James 4:8)

      Bible Interpretation
Can't we make the Bible say whatever we want it to mean?

The Bible is God's Book. This book takes on his qualites. God cannot lie. The Bible is truth. Jesus is God in the flesh. The Bible was penned my men but inspired by God. God says what he means and means what he says. The Bible must be prayerfully and reverently approached. Words have meanings within the context in which they were written. The Lord uses figures of speech. Some of these use the words "like" or "as". These word indicators show us that those phrases may have a meaning that proceeds from the literal meaning. We cannot make the Bible mean whatever we want.

Pastors And Churches

The Church of Ephesus had lost her First Love. This was the first step toward apostasy. Apostasy means stepping away from doctrine, leaving Bible truths which once were held.  Ephesus had walked away from her preminent love. That love is for the Lord Jesus Christ himself. The beginning of church apostasy had its origins even before the New Testament was finished being written. Ephesus had the Apostle Paul as their pastor for a three years. Later Paul sent faithul Timothy to minister there. John is said to have taught there. Ephesus had the best Bible teachers and still that church fell from where it started. It must have had an impeciple doctrinal statement. It could have had busy church programs. Maybe it was a great missions-minded church. Still it lacked something. Leaving one's First Love of the Lord Jesus is the first one giant step of apostasy. Doctrine, polity and practice are ready to follow. They had steped away from their fervant faith in Christ and in the Words of Christ, the Bible. Their relationship with their Lord had been neglected. We can look good on paper, view good on video, boast in numbers of missionaries, people, programs and finances; and still not have a true heart after God. It is obvious we cannot stay in our First Love while giving second pleace to the words in the Bible. Yes, we can carry our Bible to church, look good and act nice on a Sunday morning and be cold and not pure on the inside. Love for God, love for the Bible, love for one another, and love for the lost should flow from Christ through us. Read about issues affecting churches today.
