Before I start today I want to assure you that the Lord has wonderful plans for His Church.
Jesus made a powerful statement about His Church in Matthew 16:18. “And I also say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Did the Lord build his Church upon Peter himself, of course not, Jesus will not build His Church upon anyone other than Himself. If you read verses 15-17 you can see what Jesus was talking to Peter about. Jesus was telling Peter that He would build His church upon revelation knowledge just like He gave Peter that day.
A key word in that verse is the “gates” of hell. In looking up gates in that verse in the original Greek it states “likened to a vast prison.” So we can understand the verse in this manner. Jesus said I will build my Church and the “vast prison of hell” will not prevail or overcome the Church.
Church, we are entering into our finest hour of human history. Jesus is building a mighty Church and although the gates of hell will try to overcome the Church it will not happen on the other hand THE CHURCH WILL GREATLY PREVAIL OVER THE VAST PRISON OF HELL.
Some people, bless their hearts, they get all tripped up when you start talking about Bible prophecy and say well you need to be positive and my answer to them is that they need to read their Bible.
You see Bible prophecy has always and will always come to pass and no one can ever stop it. If we can’t trust Bible prophecy then God would be a liar and GOD IS NOT A LIAR. (Numbers 23:19)
Let me ask you a question, do you think the Lord had all of the prophets to make predictions of things to come that would never take place, well that’s just how silly that statement is? God is the very essence of integrity, He’s our Heavenly Father and we need to take after Him as much as we can with the Lord helping us. “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children.” Ephesians 5:1
I am currently reading through the Bible once again and I am now in the Book of Daniel. What a coincidence since I will be referring to Daniel, coincidence yah, right.
In Daniel 2:29-43, Daniel is called upon to interpret Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, he was a powerful king of Babylon that took many of the Jews in captivity for 70 years because of the unrepentant sins of the Jews, one of which was idolatry and Nebuchadnezzar had his army destroy Solomon’s Temple.
Daniel talks of 4 beasts which are actually kingdoms that had world power. God gave Daniel an interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and it was a statue of a man. The first is the Babylonian Empire with King Nebuchadnezzar as the head of the statue that Daniel saw and he represented the head of gold. The next kingdom that was going to be a world power was the Medes and Persians (modern day Iran) they were represented by the breast and arms of silver on the statue that King Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream. The third beast or kingdom with world power was Greece headed by Alexander the Great represented by his belly and his thighs of brass. The forth beast was Rome and represented actually by legs of iron and his feet part of iron and part of clay of which the feet represent the European Union which is in existence now.
Actually there were 2 world kingdoms before those 4 and they were Syria and then Egypt.
The 4 beasts or kingdoms in Daniel 7:3 are the same kingdoms Daniel talked about in Daniel 2:29-43 they are just described in a different way. The 4th beast or kingdom in the Book of Daniel 7:7-8 foreshadows the Roman Empire in the last days or it is called the European Union and the little horn that rises up out of the 10 kingdoms in Daniel 7:8 is the anti-Christ. The 10 horns are 10 kings and the little horn is the anti-Christ and he will defeat 3 of the 10 kings so there are only 7 kings left.
The fourth beast or kingdom is the same as the Apostle John talks about in the Book Revelation 13:1-18, it foreshadows the revived Roman Empire and the anti-Christ.
The Ancient of Days in Daniel 7:9 is God Himself. The Son of man in Daniel 7:13 is Jesus Christ. Daniel 7:25 talking about the time and times and the dividing of time is the 2nd half of the tribulation which is 3 ½ years where the anti-Christ will make an all out attack on the Jews and all of mankind that are left on the face of the earth.
To make it simple to understand there are currently 28 member nations in the European Union however there will be 10 left in this future time then anti-Christ will come out of and get full control of and then there will only be 7 kingdoms left.
During this time no one that is left on the face of the earth both small and great, rich or poor, free or bond will be able to buy or sell anything without the mark of the beast in their right hand or their fore-head. Of the people left on the earth once they take the mark of the beast they cannot ever come to God they are destined for hell. (Revelation 13:16-18 and Revelation 14:9-11)
I am talking about choices we must all make to either be born again or not, to be saved or lost. I will not ever be politically correct and lie to you, it is our eternal destiny I am talking about and it is the most important decision you will ever make, or not make. (John 3:3 & Romans 10:9-10)
When we look at the fact the European Union already exists and between the G-8, G-20, the United Nations and the European Union pushing everything toward Bible prophecy of the mark of the Beast and the anti-Christ taking over these kingdoms it is just another powerful proof that the prophetic clock is very close to the rapture of the Church. Because the rapture must happen BEFORE the time of tribulation. I will talk more about that next Monday.
Next week I will look at some other factors showing us WHAT TIME IS IT?
I promise that it will not be this in depth but it is hard to explain what I have just stated unless I pull a lot of pieces together. It will be much simpler.
Nita and I have been called to an evangelistic/teaching ministry. Some of the areas that we teach on is The Precious Holy Spirit, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, His gifts and how to walk in the supernatural, how to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, Bible prophecy, the privilege and blessing of giving tithes and offerings to the Lord and most important of all leading people to the Lord Jesus Christ.
