CHRISTMAS IS FOREVER (Mt. 16:18, 24:35, Rev. 11:15, Jn. 5:16-30, Rev. 4-22)
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” Jesus told me. Again, I am John, the disciple Jesus loved and I was privileged to see who Jesus really was and what He had done for humanity. What He had begun on earth continues in far greater glory in heaven. The more He would be opposed on earth, the more He would conquer the hearts of men and women, young and old. Whenever a people will close one door, He will open another among another people. Hell will not prevail against His Church or Kingdom because they are as eternal as He is. His followers shall celebrate Mass on earth and in heaven. Even God, the Father, has bestowed the highest honor on the Son.
The greatest of all honors is the power to bestow eternal life on carnal man. Jesus had and still has that power. He left us this assurance that all could hear. “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, to your amazement he will show him greater things than these. For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it to. Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, that all my honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.”
“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For, as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.”
“Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out – those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned. By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.”
The King of Glory will not be unseated by the forces of evil under the direction of Satan, the beasts and all his false prophets. Heaven and earth will pass away, but not the Words of the Son of God. He will return to judge every one, great or small based on what they have done. Before that day of reckoning, God will give mankind every opportunity to repent. That is the reason I was chosen to record the signs and predictions that shall precede the Day of Judgment and the time when eternal life will commence. Woe to those that shall disregard or alter the message of this disclosure. My Lord Jesus instructed me to write this scroll and send it to the seven churches where the final drama of this world will take place.
Satan, the destroyer (Abaddon – Apollyon) will muster his forces against Christ and His followers. Power hungry persons (white horse) shall use war (fiery red horse) and food (black horse) to kill (pale horse). The people of the God of the Bible and the followers of Jesus the Christ shall be blamed for Satan’s failures and shall be annihilated. Their prayers shall cry out to God for justice. Satan shall create a religious simile to the Christian Christ and His Church in order to confuse and replace faith in Christ and the true Creator. The chaotic conditions created by bloodshed of the innocent will result in natural disasters and in plagues and woes the world has never seen before. In spite of the evidence evil shall be doing, humans shall refuse to repent and they shall continue to blame the Hebrew -Christian God for their own sinful ways.
The world will unite behind Satan under the name of Babylon and exercise absolute authority over everyone on planet earth. This body of world leaders shall be taken in by a religion that shall require assistance. Ten nations will be allowed to grow strong and these ten shall unite and topple Babylon. For 1260 days, the world shall be at their mercy. Then the Lamb or King of kings (another rider on a white horse) with His heavenly army (on white horses) shall slay Satan’s forces and imprison him for a thousand years. During this time, Christ will reign in peace with those at His side that lost their earthly lives because of Him. The other dead shall be raised after the thousand years and after Satan has been granted a brief time to repent. His failure to do so, will end him in eternal incarceration in hell and those whose names shall not appear in the Book of life shall join him.
The place that our Lord Jesus promised to prepare for us shall be much more than a place in a mansion. It will be a new heaven with a new earth and a New Jerusalem with God and Christ at the heart of everything. Nothing unclean or evil shall ever again tarnish the image of God or destroy what He has made. We asked our Lord when the end would come and His replay was that it would commence with “the abomination that causes desolation of the House of God and the Holy City, spoken of by the prophet Daniel.” It shall begin in my generation and in Revelation, the person with the number 666 and his followers shall dominate Jerusalem for 1260 days. At the end of these days, chaotic and devastating events will result in massive suffering and destruction of the area surrounding the Holy Land. At last, Israel will welcome the Messiah and Christ will forever vanquish evil. Remain faithful during your time and you shall be present at the first resurrection. For us to participate in the hereafter we must earn the right to celebrate Christ in this life.
Epilogue: The word “generation” used to define a human lifespan can also imply the time frame of a religion. This provides us with some very interesting statistics. From the days of John to the time of the beast’s prophet in the 666 AD, plus 1260 years (rather than days) and plus the time Rome destroyed Jerusalem and Israel are 1945 years. Israel became a new nation in 1945. Another interesting statistic is that a hostile religion began in 666 AD and it trampled on the Holy City and ground for 1260 years, until 1945. A third statistic is that Christians have also suffered the severest opposition for 1260 years from the same hostile religion that has its origin in 666 AD. In my humble opinion, our Lord Jesus’ fig tree is budding and the message in Revelation is becoming more fearfully relevant.
