His Humble Servant
(Scriptures from Part I applied to Part II)
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ is often referred to as the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord, or the Day of Judgment, or Day of Vengeance. The Prophet Isaiah alone refers to it as the Judgment Day or the Day of Vengeance approximately 56 times. Because when the Lord comes He will put a complete stop to the rule, madness, and reign of the New World Order and Satan’s kingdom on earth and, according to the prophet Daniel, “smash it with an iron fist.” In other words, He is going to completely destroy this last days empire and global government and all those involved with it including their armies and even the people of the world who joined this beast’s kingdom on earth.
But how can we know when this time is near?
The Lord gave us several things to watch for so that we could recognize the times we are in, if the times we are in will indeed be the time of His return. Over the centuries His people have watched and waited to see if He would return during their time.
In Matthew 24:4-14 we are given what are signs, or “labor pains.” These are events that will occur over time becoming stronger and stronger as the last days get nearer and nearer. Take notice how it correspond to the 7 Seals of the Book of Revelation.
1. The many “false prophets” of Matthew 24 corresponds to the 1st Seal, the white horse, in Revelation 6.
|Matthew 24:5 “For many shall come in my name saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Revelation 6:1,2 “And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.|
2. The “Wars and rumors of wars” Matthew 24 corresponds to the 2nd Seal, the red horse, in Revelation 6.
| Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Matthew 24:7a For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom;
Revelation 6:3,4 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
3. The “Famines” of Matthew 24 corresponds to the 3rd Seal, the black horse, in Revelation 6.
|Matthew 24:7b ..and there shall be famines Revelation 6:5.6 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see, And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand, And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.|
4. The “Earthquakes”of Matthew 24 corresponds to the 4th Seal, the pale green horse, in Revelation 6.
|Matthew 24:7c ..and pestilences and earthquakes in divers places. Revelation 6:7,8 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.|
5. The “Persecutions and tortures to the elect” of Matthew 24 corresponds to the 5th Seal in Revelation.6.
|Matthew 24:8, 9 All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. Revelation 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held; And they cried with a loud voice saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.|
6. “Many will fall away… lawlessness… the love of many will grow cold”, Matthew 24 corresponds to the 6th Seal in Revelation 6.
|Matthew 24:10,11 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Revelation 6: 12-17 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and lo, there was a great earthquake: and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth (alien invasion), even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?|
7. “This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed to the whole world“, Matthew 24 corresponds to the 7th Seal in Revelation.8.
|Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Revelation 8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.|
The Lord is returning.
Not to revamp our failing economic system, cleanse the earth, teach people how to ascend to a higher spirituality, revamp our healthcare, or even save our dying ecosystems. He’s not coming to distribute wealth among the poor, form coalitions, or unite mankind.
He is coming to destroy the wicked off the face of the earth.
| “For behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. (not one of them left)But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.
Remember ye the law of Moses My servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
Behold I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
What is the curse? “But with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked.” (Isaiah 11:4)
He gives us a description of what the weather will be like on the day He returns to earth:
| “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes (nations) of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:29,30)
The terms “stars and powers” often symbolically refer to angels. In this instance since they are “falling” it would appear that Lucifer’s armies are cast to the earth. In Revelation chapter 12 it refers to Lucifer casting 1/3 of the stars to earth. We know when he rebelled against the Most High 1/3 of the angels joined with him in his rebellion and that’s what that particular passage is referring to. Stars are symbolic for angels. “Powers” are a rank of angels, a classification, or division of them. The “powers” of heaven are shaken and overthrown.
So before He even reaches the earth to begin His judgment on it, the “heavens” are in chaos. The Fallen Angels are being overthrown and cast down to earth.
And it’s dark. There is no light from the sun or moon. The entire earth is in utter darkness. Why? “And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him that sat on the horse, and against His army.” (Revelation 19:19).
Satan, who is in human form posing as a world dictator and leader, will gather the world’s armies to Israel to fight against the return of the true Messiah, Yahushua, Jesus Christ. He will use every weapon of warfare he has to try and prevent the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The smoke from his warfare will, no doubt, be what causes the sun and moon to cease from bringing forth light.
His miserable attempt to try and stop the Son of God, the one true Messiah from returning to earth will end in complete failure.
The inhabitants of the world will witness the end of the “New World Order” while its armies will utterly be destroyed by the breath of our Messiah. He only has to speak their deaths and destructions and it will be upon them. And that’s all He does. With the words of His lips He defeats them all.
While this New World Order has been planned over hundreds of years for the days we are in, and forcing the world into a one world government and religion, it will all be for naught. They will destroy most of mankind with their rampant murder and persecutions all around the world, but after a short reign they will be defeated and destroyed by Yahushua Himself.
It may look hopeless now, and billions of people will die at the tyranny, ruthlessness and wickedness of this Satanic regime, but they will all eventually be destroyed and spend eternity in the lake of fire.
Will you stay faithful to the Lord during these times? Millions of believers faith in Him will be tested during the reign of the NWO. That is why the Lord is allowing it, to test His people. Will you pass the test or will you sell your soul for an apple during famine?
Strengthen yourselves now in HIM so that when these times come, you are prepared to resist the tactics of the devil and the NWO and stay faithful to HIM, even unto death.
|Matthew 24:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:30. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes (nations) of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
37. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
39. And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be.
40. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left.
41. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
