Exposing the Millennium Reign – Part 4

 “Reigning With Christ – God’s Plan for All”

 The real reign with Christ spoken about in the Scriptures is the one that has every man ruling and reigning in His kingdom within us having dominion over sin and the lusts of our flesh.  This is our focus and our prayer that this rulership, our being risen to reign with Him in righteousness comes.

Mat 6:10 Your kingdom [and our ruling and reigning with Him] come. Your will be done on earth [G1093 – the land within] as it is in heaven

Lord willing, this gigantic plank of false doctrine regarding an outward Millennium Reign on the physical earth/world is completely removed from our spiritual eyes.  The entire lie comes from the father of lies and our bowing to Satan who promises us this outward rulership if we only serve him.

Luk 4:5  And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world [kosmos] in a moment of time. 

Luk 4:6  And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. 

Luk 4:7  If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. 

Just think of the huge false doctrines that have fallen away as we have come out of the lies and deceptions of Spiritual Babylon.

  • No longer denying the Second Death, knowing this spiritual experience, which is the lake of fire [the cross] and the only way we will be saved

 

  • No longer denying the “resurrection of damnation” [Joh 5:29, Dan 12] as belonging to those lesser Gentiles. Now we see this as the only way to get to salvation. Day 3 is only found by living through this Day 2 experience!

 

  • We clearly see there is no spiritual event called the “second resurrection” in the Scriptures — it does not exist. There is only ONE blessed and holy FIRST resurrection that comes to all men in the two harvests of men.  It is not a pattern of sound words to refer to the second harvest as the second resurrection.

 

  • We have also been delivered of our exaltation of the Elect and our being given more respect from the Lord than other men and deserving of greater rewards and lesser punishments.

 

  • The significance of the flesh profiting itself NOTHING [Joh 6:63] has taken on expanded comprehension. Now our focus can be returned to its proper place and we know the road is narrower and few there be shall find it.

 

  • We continue to learn to not think above what is written [1Co 4:6], having learned a big lesson by this experience. We now know there are many things not written; including the details on how the physical earth comes to an end and how humanity and living flesh will cease to exist.

The flock has lost some who walk no more with Christ not being able to bear the loss of carnal profit and carrying our cross to the second death.  This winnowing and sifting will continue as it is a precious few who will be given to lay down their lives and endure the walk of faith all the way to the end.  The pursuit of the fishes and loaves i.e –  the knowledge needs to be turned into our pursuit of love [obedience].  There are few who will be given to move on and finish the race.

Mat 24:12  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 

Mat 24:13  But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 

While more studies could be done to expand upon all the connected errors propping up the Millennium Reign doctrine,  it is time to move on and turn our eyes inwardly to the kingdom of God and where He is at work.

We Walk by Faith Not by Sight

We will continue to comfort one another with the promises of the Lord and the comfort given to us in the Scriptures.

Rom 15:4  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. 

There are many details about the next age the Lord has not provided to us.  He has not revealed all things to us and we know that the Lord [the truth, the way] will not be found in what the Scriptures do not reveal.  We must be wise to not follow after such deception and the wanton spirit within our flesh that wants to know everything.  Let’s stick to what is revealed in His Word.

Mat 24:23  Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 

Mat 24:26  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 

The good fight of faith means we walk not on what we see [physically or spiritually revealed to us in the Scriptures]; but by faith. The very essence of faith is believing in what one cannot see.

Heb 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Rom 8:24  For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 

Let’s look again at these verses that warn us to be content and not be wanton in seeking riches including the spiritual kind.  We are to flee such lusts and idols that ensnare carnal minds in huge error as we have witnessed ourselves.

1Ti 6:8  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 

1Ti 6:9  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 

1Ti 6:10  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 

What are we to focus on and pursue if not spiritual riches as we wait on the Lord?  Paul answers.  It is all about love, which is our obedience [1Jo 5:3].

1Ti 6:11  But thou, O man of God, flee these things [wantonness, seeking to be rich, chasing knowledge, etc]; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. 

1Ti 6:12  Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. 

To those given much [knowledge, riches], much more will be expected [Luk 12:48].  All riches are given by the Lord to the edifying and benefit of the Body of Christ that will be manifest in good works in service to the Lord.

1Ti 6:17  Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, [WALK BY FAITH] who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 

The sign of our maturity is the growing fruit of righteousness [obedience, charity, agape] which shall never fail us.  Predictions of false prophets within and without ourselves will fail, our learning new mysteries [tongues] about the Lord will fail as our focus is turned back to the Lord and the love of God.

1Co 13:8  Charity [obedience] never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 

The love of God is better than wine says the love book of Solomon, which is a type for our relationship with Jesus Christ our husband.

Son 1:2  Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love [obedience] is better than wine [knowledge]. 

Rom 14:17  For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

If we study the Epistles and writings to the early church, we will  see an absence [lack] of focus on future mysteries and outward events, but instead a constant focus on the battle for truth and obedience within us. This is the struggle of flesh and Spirit we all battle and where our focus must always remain as only the queen of Babylon within us [Rev 18:7] thinks she needs nothing and has already arrived.

The Lord’s True Plan for Reigning on the Earth

Being raised up with Christ and occupying a new Temple in which He dwells takes a three-day process with some little seasons to be enduring in the transition between the days.  The Times Study is covering those details and their spiritual significance.  There is simplicity and order to all that the Lord is working in His plan for the salvation of every man.  God’s plan and order never changes.  First spiritual death, then spiritual life.  First the flesh then the spirit. First the reign of death [flesh] then the reign of righteousness as we must live both experiences as His Two Witnesses.

1Co 15:46  Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 

1Co 15:47  The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 

1Co 15:49  And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 

Bringing the complexity of the signified times and seasons of our Lord back to the simplicity that is Christ, both reigns beginning with the reign of death and damnation [Day 2] and the reign of eternal life and righteousness [Day3] are crucially important and are lived out in the specified order.

Rom 5:21  That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Rom 15:12  And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that [Christ] shall rise to reign over the Gentiles [rest of the dead within us]; in him shall the Gentiles trust.

Death reigns on our earth when we hear the law but have not the power and overcoming to rule over sin.  Hearing the gospel and the commands of Christ revives sin in us, the result being spiritual death reaping the wages of sin.

Rom 7:9  For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died

Rom 7:10  And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. 

 

Heb 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 

Heb 9:28  So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. 

It is only when the Lord comes the second time, with power and fire, that the rest of the dead within us [the Gentiles] are raised to life as death is destroyed in the lake of fire.

Rev 20:5  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 

Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. 

His coming to us with power on high, at Pentecost, brings the Spirit of life that is setting us free the law of sin and death, little by little, as we abide in the fire carrying our cross by faith, crying out for deliverance.

Rom 7:24  O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 

Rom 7:25  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. 

Rom 8:1  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 

Rom 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death….

The reign of death is transformed into a reign of righteousness by the process as the heavens and earth within us continue to be purified.

Dominion and Rulership Comes by Death

We die daily to death in the lake of fire as our carnal mind is destroyed and we dispossess the land of all things that defile.  This is reigning in righteousness and we grow into it as we mature in the faith thru great tribulations.

Rom 6:7  For he that is dead [to death] is freed from sin. 

Rom 6:8  Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 

Rom 6:9  Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion [rulership] over him. 

Rom 6:10  For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 

Rom 6:11  Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Rom 6:12  Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 

This fulfilling the plan of God was given way back in the beginning.

Gen 4:7  If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him [sin]. 

 The Lord’s plan was set from the beginning of time and He has never wavered or changed.  God made lights in the inward heavens, to rule over the times and divide light from darkness in His process of remaking each and every man.

Gen 1:16  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 

Gen 1:17  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 

The Lord is the Lord of heaven and the earth and in the process of remaking us [“Qal” ongoing tense like Aorist in Greek], that is being accomplished by His three-day process in rebuilding the temple of God which temple we are [1Co 3:16].  Gaining dominion is gaining rulership and that dominion is over our own personal earth, air [heaven] and over everything that lives within us.  The plan was stated and has not changed from the very beginning.

Gen 1:26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 

Gen 1:27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 

Gen 1:28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth

This transition into the reign of righteousness, for the signified thousand years; signifies the third day, also known as the last day or the day of the Lord in which all men are perfected in Gods plan.  The number three signifying the process [the three days] of how we are perfected by the hand of the Lord.

Mat 12:40  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 

Joh 2:19  Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

The kingdom of Jesus Christ and His Christ has never been and never will be about ruling the physical kosmos [Joh 18:36, Joh 6:15, Luk 17:21].  The words of Scripture, which are all spirit, tell us the earth represents our bodies, emotions, and actions … our entire life experience which is also known as the promised land that is given to Israel [Elect, Spiritual Jews] to possess.  We possess that land and learn to rule over it only through judgment that comes when Christ brings the fire to our earth.

Deu 4:1  Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you. 

Isa 26:9  With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth [the promised land], the inhabitants of the world [kosmos] will learn righteousness. 

The entire history of flesh Israel and all failed and immature kings is there to show us our Day 2 experience and the reign of death and our flesh and the futility we experience in overcoming sin and being obedient.  A divided kingdom is a double-minded man who deceives himself and is ensnared in death having made a covenant with death.  This is all part of the Lord’s plan to bring us to our wits end where we cry out for a savior.

Isa 3:4  And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them [first before the kingdom is established in righteousness with a true king] 

Php 3:3  For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. 

When we are in the flesh before Christ comes in the Spirit with power, our ruling was all in vain and there was never any lasting righteousness or overcoming.  Which is why Christ comes to us the second time [Day three] to bring the fire that saves us and establishes true righteousness on the earth.  We look towards and focus on this.

2Pe 3:13  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 

The true reign with Christ is the result of our coming through the Lake of Fire and dying to death which is the Second Death.  When death is dead within us, we have power in the Spirit and are reigning over and possess the land in holiness.  This is salvation and the plan of God for every man in the appointed times for each.

Rev 5:10  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. 

Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Being like Christ will have us ruling like Christ and being the servant of all and lording over no man.  The outcome we should seek is the exact opposite focus the false doctrine of an outward Millennium Reign brought to those that believed it.  Reigning with Christ is serving the dead within us and without us, preaching the gospel and teaching all the commandments of the Lord.

Mar 10:42  But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. 

Mar 10:43  But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: 

Mat 5:19  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 

We can praise the Lord for His mercy in bringing us out of our deceptions and turning us back to the message of the gospel.

Exposing the Millennium Reign Doctrine – Part 3

“The Destruction of Satan”

The focus of this study is to expose and correct a twisting of Scriptures regarding Satan that is necessary to support the false doctrine of an outward Millennium Reign.

When one fails to keep the sound principles of rightly dividing the Word, a lie such as an outward millennium reign by Christ on a physical earth is easily spewed forth from our carnal lusts.  When this leaven creeps in, it brings with it even more lies and false doctrines including denying the Second Death, perverting the two resurrections all men experience and twisting the plan of God for the ages into another gospel entirely.

2Ti 4:3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; [tickle their ears, tell them what they want their flesh love to hear]

2Ti 4:4  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 

Many fables have been invented about the Book of Revelation by failing to hold to sound principles we covered in earlier studies.  Some mistakenly view Revelation including chapter 20 by the letter, thinking outward and completely forgetting the repeated and clear instructions that all these things are within us, spoken of in signified language and will shortly come to pass.

Living by every word ensures that all of us will be first be snared by those lusts.  It is only by His mercy, that a few [Mat 22:14] in this age, will be drawn out of the error of chasing Christ in the secret or hidden places.  Christ who is the Word and the Truth, will not be found in what He has not revealed in the Scriptures no matter how many carnal men continue to search.  The Lord Jesus Christ is not in the things His Word does not reveal to us.  We are commanded not to pursue such lusts and deceivers.

Mat 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 

Mat 24:25  Behold, I have told you before. 

Mat 24:26  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not

Satan is not a single being that can only be in one place at one time as many of us have been taught and may believe to this day.   Satan represents evil spirits the Lord created and controls in working His work in bringing salvation to all men.  The lake of fire, the spiritual event that is God’s judgment was made for the destruction of the devil and his millions of messengers [angels] which are the carnal thoughts of men and all the world [the 200 million lies of the great harlot – 9:16].  The very purpose of the lake of fire is for the destruction of the adversarial spirit and the lies [carnal thoughts] contrary to faith.

Rev 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. 

Abiding in carnal thoughts is abiding in death [Rom 8:6-7] being at enmity with the Lord and operating contrary to faith. Such ones do not, in fact they cannot feed, give drink, cloth or bring freedom to men so imprisoned.  Thus, the Lord puts them all into the fire when our day of the Lord is at hand.  This is how all things carnal which is death, is destroyed in us in the Second Death that is the lake of fire.

Mat 25:41  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels [messengers]

Mat 25:42  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 

Mat 25:43  I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not

The spirit of Satan is the spirit of the world and is integral to the Lord’s plans in creating all men and then remaking those same men [pieces of clay] by way of destruction [Jer 18:4]. An adversary and tempter was needed to try the faith of the saints and teach us obedience through an experience of evil.

Gen 3:1  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 

The heaven and the earth that begins the Bible at the Lord’s creation in Genesis 1:1 is within all men.  That is where Satan is operating in the kingdom of God within every man.  The parable of the sower shows us Satan at work within our hearts and minds deceiving and being a liar to our mind from the very beginning.

Mar 4:15  And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

Satan is “in there”, in your heaven [mind] and earth [heart/walk] and he is put there purposefully by the Lord to be used for our good and be an adversary and tempter, through which the Lord will bring salvation and destroy our flesh and carnal-mindedness.

Isa 54:16  Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. 

The good fight of faith requires God’s people to do battle against Satan and all offspring of the father of all lies.  The battle rages in heaven and on the earth as the sum of the word tell us but it’s all made of God and used for good in the end.

Eph 6:11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 

Eph 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heaven [high places].

 

Rev 12:17  And the dragon [Satan] was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. 

Until burned up in our day of the Lord, Satan is in the kingdom within us roaming about our earth seeking whom he may devour.  Which is why we need to stay on guard always.

1Pe 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 

All demons [lying spirits] are considered to be Satan. You can see that in the story of Christ being accused of being under the power of Beelzebub when casting out devils.

Mat 12:24  But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. 

Mat 12:25  And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: 

Mat 12:26  And if Satan cast out Satan [evil spirit casting out an evil spirit], he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? 

Mat 12:28  But if I cast out devils [Satan] by the Spirit of God [Fire from heaven – the Word of Truth] then the kingdom of God is come unto you. 

When we walk contrary to faith, we are walking in the spirit of the god of this world who is Satan, who is the father of all lies who is also known as the prince of the power of the air.

Eph 2:2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 

1Jn 5:19  And we know that we are of God, and the whole world [kosmos] lieth in wickedness.

The spirit of Satan is destroyed in every man only in the lake of fire. Getting this spirit and enmity against God removed is the last milestone of our salvation. The one holding the power of death in us must be destroyed and that is what the Lord is doing when spiritual fire falls from heaven onto our earth bringing and truth and righteousness that burns up the adversary.

Rev 20:9  And they went up on the breadth of the earth [G1093], and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 

Rev 20:10  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. 

The burning up of Satan, in whom there is no truth [Joh 8:44] is the destruction of all lies and establishment of the truth upon our earth.  Revelation 20 is the transition to our hour of judgment which is a new day [one day is as 1,000 years] that is the day of the Lord that establishes truth as Satan is destroyed by spiritual fire.  This is all taking place within us, where the fire of God is making the new heaven and earth wherein will dwell righteousness.

Joh 4:23  But the hour [of our judgment] cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 

Some have made arguments to us that those in the third harvest cannot live by every word as they do not even have a tempter [devil/Satan] to tempt them when they go thru their judgment in the lake of fire.  Such false doctrine was supported by outward thinking, literal by the letter, reading of Rev 20.  Here is a paraphrase of that false teaching some have been exposed to that shows the errors of taking a literal approach to these Revelation 20 verses.

“The third harvest of men will not have a tempter to try and test them as Satan would have been destroyed earlier at the end of the millennium [Rev 20:10].  When those men are raised in spiritual bodies and enter into their judgment, there is no longer a Satan around to try and tempt them.  That means there is no longer even a wicked one for any of them to overcome.  Therefore, the final harvest of men will not experience the same trials and temptations as God’s Elect that overcome in this age simply because Satan is no more.”

This is all a big pile of lies.  Satan aka the devil and the dragon will be around as long as there are men still needing to be judged.  There is no Scripture that confirms this false teaching except for the carnal misread of Rev 20 outwardly and forgetting all His words are spirit and signified [Rev 1:1, Joh 6:63].  Such perversion twists and negates God’s plan for saving all men at many turns.

It is ALL, not some men, who will worship the beast who is given power by Satan aka the dragon.

Rev 13:4  And they [all men being called of God out of the sea in their appointed time] worshipped the dragon [Satan] which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 

Rev 13:7  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 

Rev 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

This leaven [false teaching] leads to even greater error and a complete butchering of God’s plan for saving all men.  We have witnessed this carnal and outward teaching of Revelation 20 leading to another lie of then denying that all men live by every word God spoke.  The false reasoning was if Satan was no more having already been destroyed in the outward fire and fulfillment of Rev 20:10; then Matthew 4:4, 1Co 3:21, Ecc 9:2 and other scriptures that witnesses to the one event for all, must now be “qualified”.  WOW. A little leaven does indeed lead to even bigger error and a complete miss of the gospel!

Such interpretation is literal and outward, completely missing the spiritual lesson that it is Satan who is a spirit and is in the hearts and minds of all men.  Every man is first a carnal man and is, therefore, is a liar [Rom 3:4] and has as his father the devil who was put there purposefully to be adversary and tempter to God’s people. All men commit sin thereby proving they are of the same mind as their carnal father called Satan aka the devil.

 1Jn 3:8  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 

An adversary created by the Lord on purpose to try and tempt us must be overcome for salvation.   The adversary the devil is there roaming about our earth, the land within us as the story of Job tells in our day of judgment.  All men will have their Job experience.

Job 2:1  Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. 

Job 2:2  And the LORD said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth [H776 – land, earth], and from walking up and down in it. 

It is the Lord who works all things, even evil things [Isa 45:7], even our very sins to work His purposes in every man whose end will be salvation. The adversary the Lord creates and puts into our earth treads down the sanctuary thus giving the Lord the occasion to come again for salvation.

Isa 63:17  O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants’ sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. 

Isa 63:18  The people of thy holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary

 

1Co 3:17  If any man defile the temple [sanctuary] of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 

Satan is one and the same known as Leviathan who lives in the deep, the bottomless pit, which is the sea which is symbolic of the flesh of every man.    Only the Lord can draw out this dragon and destroy that which He created and puts DEEP into our hearts and minds.

Isa 27:1  In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. [in the LOF]

The teaching of Satan being a single being that can only be tempting one person at a time is an invention of the carnal mind.  The first heaven and the earth must be done away with by fire; as a new heaven and new earth is being established [Rev 21:1] within every man in their day of the Lord.

Heb 10:9  Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 

The battle in heaven precedes the battle on our earth as true doctrine needs to first be established.

Rev 12:7  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 

Rev 12:8  And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 

Rev 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 

But the war and fight of faith continue in our day of the Lord as we overcome Satan within us by dying to the carnal mind [Second Death, dying to death] that is all taking place in our lake of fire experience.

Rev 12:10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 

Rev 12:11  And they overcame him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 

The defeat of Satan within every man is essential for death to be destroyed in every man.

Heb 2:14  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil

Heb 2:15  And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 

Satan being cast into the lake of fire, where our beast and false prophet already abide completes the Lord’s plan of salvation and burns out all the remaining wood, hay and stubble.

Rev 20:13  And the sea gave up the dead [Satan, Leviathan operate in the deep] which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 

Rev 20:14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 

Like all Scriptures, the events of Revelation 20 are not to be avoided but instead are to be hastened unto [1Pe 3:12].  Living through the spiritual events of Revelation 20 is the way salvation is completed in us and the only way Satan is purged from our earth the result being all things made new.

Rev 21:1  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 

It takes the second coming of the Lord, with fire to show us the Wicked and destroy him with the brightness of His coming.  A day comes to every man when the Lord implements His salvation plan and the end of the carnal age [world] within and puts down all rebellion and carnal enmity [2Th 2:3-9].

As long as there are men who have not completed their day of the Lord there will remain an adversary, a Satan, at work in their earth doing what the Lord has commanded be done. Satan is used to incite the Lord to finish His work and usher in righteousness by kindling this fire within all His people [Zion].

Lam 4:11  The LORD hath accomplished his fury; he hath poured out his fierce anger, and hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof. 

Lam 4:12  The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy [i.e. Satan] should have entered into the gates of Jerusalem. 

The result of our partaking of the lake of fire is the raising up of our new man to reign with Christ is our overcoming and resurrection to life.  This is the blessed and holy first resurrection. When death is no more, the carnal mind that is death is no more and all things are alive to Christ.

1Co 15:25  For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 

1Co 15:26  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death [the carnal mind which is death by fire that falls from heaven].

Rom 8:6  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 

While there are deeper things to be learned regarding Satan and his messengers, my hope is everyone is clear of web of lies we once were taught regarding the end of the physical earth and humanity and the whole concoction called the outward Millennium Reign.

Let’s not be deceived from the simplicity of the gospel and the truth that all men will live by every word God spoke.  Even those in the third harvest will be tempted and tried by the same adversary and spirit that tempts and tries us in this age.  There truly is one event that comes alike to all.

Ecc 9:2  All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath. 

We have learned some valuable lessons from our trials.  Those that lust after spiritual money [which is all of us], which is KNOWLEDGE also are snared into the root of many evils and merchandise [Eze 28, Spiritual Babylon] the Lord’s treasures for carnal gain and profit.  Our learning contentment and waiting on the Lord to give us our spiritual food and bring the increase is a huge lesson we have been taught.

1Ti 6:8  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 

1Ti 6:9  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 

1Ti 6:10  For the love of money is the root of all evil: [knowledge, spiritual riches] which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

“Fire From Heaven Destroys All Flesh”

Exposing the Millennium Reign Doctrine – Part 2

 

Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

We are learning to look within and not without to see what the Lord is doing and where He is focused.  Thankfully, the Lord is opening our spiritual eyes to see the carnal lusts we so easily ran after in being deceived into believing false doctrines on the end times and particularly the so-called Millennium [1,000 year] Reign.  We learn spiritual truths by our first erring in truth, being seduced by false Christ’s who bring false doctrine to tell our flesh what it likes to hear.

Mar 13:22  For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

Our flesh desires to profit and be blessed for our walk with Christ.  Yet we are learning more each day, that is not the Lord’s plan.  His kingdom is not of this world [Joh 18:36] and we need to repent of these lies and desires that had us looking down upon others less blessed than ourselves.  This experience of evil is shown us in the Scriptures through the experiences of the chosen disciples who moved onward to maturity in time.  Christ speaks about death but our self-absorbed focus is what is in it for our flesh.  What do we gain the carnal mind will be asking.

Luk 9:44  Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men. 

Luk 9:45  But they did not understand this saying, and it was hidden from them so that they did not perceive it; and they were afraid to ask Him about this saying. 

Luk 9:46  Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. 

Luk 9:47  And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, 

Luk 9:48  And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great. 

Those in Christ will be ministering meekly to babes, they won’t ever be lording over men.  Not now or in the age to come as the Lord changes not [Heb 13:8].

The entire book of Revelation is speaking of things the Lord is working within us when our appointed day and hour for judgment is at hand.  It is not “out there” in the future, it is happening in the kingdom of God which is the hearts and minds of those the Lord has appeared the second time for salvation [which day is today for the Elect in this age]. His appearing and all these acts being lived out or kept is the greatest blessing that will fall to every man when their time is come.

Rev 1:3  Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep [live them] those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. 

Rev 22:7  Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings [lives them out] of the prophecy of this book

The further we walk with Christ and He pulls us further upward in Spirit, the greater the gulf between us and the carnal world.  The greater truth we have been given to see will be mocked and ridiculed as foolishness by those on the other side of this great gulf.  Our understanding of the Lord’s absolute control over who is spiritually blind, deaf or dumb, has been sharpened by our recent trials with former brethren.

1Co 2:14  But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 

The exposing of the outward Millennium Reign doctrine removes a giant plank from our spiritual eyes.  Our discipleship for Christ comes not with special rewards and privileges other than being the first group of men to be blessed to know the Lord in Spirit and in Truth.  Our flesh loves the idea that the outward world would bow before us and we would be exalted over the entire human race. This verse has never been brighter as it plainly tells us that our flesh profits nothing:

Joh 6:63  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Our walk with the Lord is an unprofitable walk for our flesh.  That life is being lost in order to gain a new one in Christ.  We work and toil because we love God as the Holy Spirit grows in our hearts [Rom 5:5] doing our reasonable service knowing we are unprofitable servants [Luk 17:10, Rom 12:1].

We are fleeing this carnal idolatry that has us puffed up, thinking more highly of ourselves over the rest of mankind.  Our blessing is not to rule the outward, but it is to rule inwardly in His kingdom and be the first group of men [the second harvest] to sit with Him in heaven having dominion over our earth [our spiritual bodies].  Drinking the wine of the New Testament is both the blessing and the event that is destroying our flesh as we partake of His death inwardly as we become living sacrifices for one another.

1Co 10:16  The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 

We all first follow Christ for the carnal benefits, being fed of the fishes and loaves, being filled with knowledge but not truly having faith which is the work of God within us.  We first pursue Christ for the carnal gains to the old man.

Joh 6:26  Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 

Joh 6:27  Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. 

Our blessings from the Lord are not outward, they are inward and come forth from the Kingdom of God.

The true Christ, the living Word, is unattractive to flesh.  Learning there is no carnal benefits and the elect in this age will not be lording over men in an outward physical world will cause many to depart and walk no more with the Lord.  Many are offended in hearing the truth that their flesh is not being blessed and there will be no carnal profit to our walking with Christ and following Him to death.  These truths winnow down the flock and separate the true disciples of Christ from the false as it truly is a few that shall endure to the end.  It is a hard saying, offending all carnal to know there is no profit in this walk for flesh.

Joh 6:53  Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. 

Joh 6:60  Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? 

Joh 6:61  When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? 

Joh 6:62  What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? 

Joh 6:63  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. 

Joh 6:64  But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. 

Joh 6:65  And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 

Joh 6:66  From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 

The Millennium Reign doctrine is just another variant of a “prosperity gospel” of Babylonian orthodoxy that teaches the Lord is blessing His people in the flesh.  As we have grown to see, it is only through death that new life comes forth.  Any outward flesh blessing or carnal gaining gospel is no gospel at all.

Gal 1:6  I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 

Gal 1:7  Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 

The Scriptures do not tell us the details of how the Lord will bring an end to the outward world and bring about a cessation of physical life.  Reverting to the letter, forgetting that all “My Words are Spirit” has led many to make up their own private interpretation of these signified words and verses [Rev 1:1, Rev 1:3] regarding the end of the carnal age which is the destruction of the old earth [spiritual land] within us.

Rev 20:7  And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 

Rev 20:8  And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 

Rev 20:9  And they went up on the breadth of the earth [G1093], and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 

Rev 20:10  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. 

Not only are all these words and events “signified”, but they have also always been shortly to come to pass in every generation since John wrote them.

Rev 1:1  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 

We have many things to relearn rightly dividing the Word, as the leaven of an outward Millennium Reign is removed from our spiritual eyes.

The death the Lord focused on doing away with is being carnal minded. That is the last enemy to be destroyed, not physical flesh.  The Lord is not bound by physical flesh and considers those not alive in physical flesh to be “sleeping” rather than dead.  The focus of Revelation 20 is not on the outward and the physical. The focus of His spiritual words is inward and speaks to the destruction of Satan and his messengers, our carnal thoughts with fire.  This is the death and the one having power over death that the Lord is intent on destroying in these verses.

Rom 8:6  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 

Rom 8:7  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 

Rom 8:8  So then they that are in the flesh [acting carnally] cannot please God.

The works of the devil is this carnal mindedness that works in all flesh.  Those works and that death is destroyed when Christ comes a second time to redeem us from sin.

1Jn 3:8  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works [carnal mindedness – death] of the devil. 

Heb 2:14  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 

Our Lord’s appearing in our hearts and minds … IN HEAVEN …, brings the spiritual fire that destroys and consumes our carnal mind.  That is what the signified words for fire consistently represents in the Bible and it changes not when we get to Revelation 20.  Fire is the Spirit of God, it is His Word which is, was and will be burning up all things that defile us in the day we are given to hear those words.

Heb 12:29  For our God is a consuming fire. 

Eze 22:31  Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads,” says the Lord GOD. 

When the Scriptures speak about the outward physical earth, the Greek word Kosmos or G2889 is used that is almost often translated as the “world”.

G2889, κόσμος, kosmos

Total KJV Occurrences: 188

world, 185

adorning, 2

world’s, 1

It is the outward world [G2889 – kosmos] that Satan promises us we will be given to rule over if only we will bow and serve him,

Mat 4:8  Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world [G2889 Kosmos], and the glory of them; 

Mat 4:9  And saith unto him, All these things [THE WORLD] will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

It is the carnal mind, the mindset of death, of the devil, that has us twisting the Scriptures to seek gain and exaltation over other men.  This is not the way of the Lord whatsoever!  The Lord seeks to serve, not to rule over men outwardly.  His words and deeds are the examples we follow.  Christ withdrew from carnal followers when they were about to force Him to be their king.

Joh 6:15 Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself.

Seeking to gain the whole world [kosmos] is the work of the carnal mind and is a sure-fire way of remaining lost in this age.  It is a huge deception we have mercifully been delivered from.

Luk 9:25  For what is a man advantaged [profited], if he gain [rule over] the whole world [G2889 – outward “kosmos”], and lose himself, or be cast away? 

Desiring the world and to rule over it, is loving the world which is following Satan and his temptations.

1Jn 2:16  For all that is in the world [G2889], the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world [G2889]

The word G1093 or “GE” on the other hand represents “the earth” and is also spoken of as “the land”; representing the spiritual land promised to spiritual Israel.

G1093, γῆ, gē

Having dominion over “our earth or land” is salvation and that is what comes about via the three-day process of the Lord working righteousness through judgment in our personal earth in the appointed times for all.

Mat 12:40  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth [G1093]

The Lord comes to save men by destroying their first earth, not the outer world of kosmos, but their carnal existence [end of their carnal age] with fire.

Luk 12:49  I am come to send fire on the earth[G1093]; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 

We do not pray for the world [Joh 17:9] which is speaking of the world or Kosmos.  Yet we are to pray for the earth and for overcoming to come upon our earth.

Mat 6:10  Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth [G1093], as it is in heaven. 

It is not in the plan of God to profit the flesh/carnal mind by giving physical rulership over the whole world [G2889 –the Kosmos].  This physical rulership is an insidious lie of the evil one [Luk 4:5-7] designed to entice the many called who bow and serve Satan unknowingly.  The profit to our new man is the death and destruction of our beast and false prophet in the lake of fire within us.

Rev 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Spiritual Fire Falling from Heaven Consumes the Carnal Mind

Fire being poured out on the earth in Rev 20:9 is spiritual speak for judgment being poured out upon our carnal existence [mind and body] that is the earth.   Our salvation comes by way of the destruction of the first Temple [the land, the earth] and that BY FIRE from heaven.

1Co 3:15  If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

1Co 3:16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 

1Co 3:17  If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy [with spiritual fire] for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 

Spiritual fire from heaven remakes a new earth wherein dwells righteousness, which is our obedience to Christ.  The new earth is the result of our reigning with Christ in Spirit for one day, which is the same as 1,000 signified years which ushers in our day of the Lord bringing the spiritual fire and heat that destroys death [the carnal mind] in us and remakes a new heaven [mind] and a new earth [walk/deeds].  Peter spoke in similar spiritual language as John.

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 

2Pe 3:11  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 

2Pe 3:12  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 

2Pe 3:13  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth [G1093], wherein dwelleth righteousness

The Lord is not a liar nor a hypocrite.  He strongly rebuked the disciples when they wanted to call literal fire to consume unbelievers.

Luk 9:54  And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? 

Luk 9:55  But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 

Luk 9:56  For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them 

Literal fire “killing” [same Hebrew word as smite] all of mankind, would make the Lord’s covenant with Noah [mankind] a false promise.  The Lord spoke to Noah and said He would never again smite all living on the physical earth.

Gen 8:21  And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. 

Many have first erred in not looking to the Lord, but instead seeking profit and power over men as a reward for following Christ.  It is from such an exalted place men concoct all kinds of abominations including burning God’s creation with literal fire.

Jer 32:33 And they have turned unto me the back, and not the face: though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction. 

Jer 32:34 But they set their abominations in the house, which is called by my name, to defile it. [=Abomination of desolation standing in holy place]

Jer 32:35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

Any doctrine that makes God a liar and contradicts His example is coming from the evil one who roams our earth seeking whom he may devour [1Pe 5:8]. The Lord burning His creation with literal fire has never come into His heart.

Jer 7:30 For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith the Lord: they have set their abominations in the house which is called by my name, to pollute it. 

Jer 7:31 And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.

We now know that any teaching that takes Revelation 20 literally, is a false doctrine as it turns our Lord into a monster doing the very abominable acts He forbids.  Literal fireballs killing all mankind on the kosmos is another strong witness that the entire teaching of an outward Millennium Reign is built on a house of lies.  This false doctrine is a repackaging of the Babylonian false doctrine of eternal hellfire that the more blessed Elect get to avoid.  It is high time to awake out of our sleep and receive His instruction in our minds and hearts (the high place) and stop looking out there.

Walking by faith includes accepting we don’t know all the details about the end of the world and how humanity will cease to exist.  Our focus needs to be put back on things of the Spirit within the Kingdom of God.  The new man will be reigning over our earth [the promised land] as as a result we will be gaining dominion over sin as our carnal mind is being destroyed with spiritual fire.

Rev 5:10  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth [G1093 GE, not the kosmos]

Our time to reign over the inner earth is now as we die with Him to death which is the Second Death.  To do so, we suffer the destruction of our old way of life and thinking.

2Ti 2:11  It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: 

2Ti 2:12  If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: 

Lord willing, spiritual fire is falling from our heaven right now.  This fire is destroying the old man, the first man Adam, the flesh in all of us.  This makes way for the second Adam, the Lord from heaven to emerge.

1Co 15:47  The first man is of the earth [G1093 – GE], earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 

This fire from heaven is putting to death our carnal mind and devouring the spirit of Satan within that is roaming our inner earth.  The result of this fire falling is a remaking of a new heaven and a new earth and consuming up of the spiritual sea that is our flesh.  Getting past the chapter break we see the blessed result.

Rev 21:1  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea [the carnal mind, flesh, the deep where Leviathan dwells]

The Lord and all the apostles warn His people of many deceivers who will come to them as angels of light and put our focus “out there” in the world.  Lord willing, our eyes are being turned back inside of ourselves, into the Kingdom of God where we are being diligent in watching and working the work of God.  It is there we shall seek the treasures in heaven and learn to follow the Lord.

Col 3:1  If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 

Col 3:2  Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 

We are not told how the outward earth comes to an end.  That was never the intent or subject of Revelation 20.

Next week we will look at the verses [Rev 20:9-10] specifically regarding the destruction of Satan in Part 3 as we further brighten our spiritual vision and ensure we completely remove the lie of an outward Millennium Reign.

Introduction.

1Th 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

1Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

 

Dan 2:19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

Dan 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

Dan 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, […and their kingdom..] and setteth up kings: […in a new kingdom] he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

Dan 2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

The secrets of the Lord are revealed to those that are His throughout all generations, showing them all things that must shortly come to pass.

Psa 25:14 The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

The revelations of Jesus Christ are with those that keep His sayings:

Amo 3:7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

In this study, we will be focusing on the times and seasons of God’s work which He reveals to His own at the appointed times. There is a time that it is not for any to know these things and the understanding remains hidden, and we must each tarry a little season for it to be revealed.

Dan 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? 

To truly comprehend these times and seasons in Scripture, the “end times”, “the last hour”, “last times” mentioned throughout by the Old Testament prophets and the apostles of the Lord, we must remind ourselves the Father’s single purpose from the beginning of time, have been determined already before the foundation of the world [Isa 46:10].

Act 15:18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

Failure to hold fast and keep this singular purpose at the forefront of our minds will lead to Scripture remaining sealed to us, leading us to become puffed up against others, boasting against where the works of God is at in others, and thereby remaining spiritually lost ourselves.

It is our hope and prayers that we continue to repent of these idols of the natural man regarding the times and seasons of all the works of God and be caused to grow in virtue and escape the corruption that is in the world through the knowledge of His works.

2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

All the works of God and their timing have been kept secret from the foundation of the world and are being revealed to His own at “the end times” as we are raised with Christ to life.   Those being saved declare His works with rejoicing.

Psa 118:17  I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. 

Psa 145:4  One generation [His chosen ones in every age] shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. 

We will be rightly dividing the word of Truth about these times and season, that our knowledge and obedience be increased to continue escaping the lusts that are in the world.

Mat 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

The Father’s purpose.

There is no other Way under heaven to know and comprehend the Father’s age lasting purpose, except through the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Eph 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

Christ is in the Father, and the age lasting purpose of the Father is all hidden in Christ Jesus.

Joh 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, […and His times and seasons..] he doeth the works. 

Joh 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

 

Eph 3:9 And to make all men see […at the appointed time in due order..] what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

Therefore to know “the times or the seasons which are hid in the Father, Jesus Christ (in whom all is purposed) must first be revealed to us, for He and the Father are one.

Joh 10:30 I and my Father are one.

Eph 3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

All the apostles’ writings were the revelation of Jesus Christ inspired of the Holy Spirit of the Father.

Paul:

Gal 1:12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Peter:

 1Pe 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

John:

 Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

The Father’s end purpose in all His times and seasons is:

Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love [obedience – 1Jo 5:3]:

1Pe 1:14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 

1Pe 1:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

This state of perfection is signified as being in the new heavens and a new earth.

2Pe 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; [= not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts…] and there was no more sea.

Prior studies have already looked closely how this perfection is achieved…through fiery trials (Peter), dying daily (Paul), lake of fire (John)…

Jud 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

 

Jas 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

Jas 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

Jas 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

All these New Testaments writings telling us of God’s purpose to mold man into His image, were hidden from the beginning in the Old Testament types and shadows:

Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our [express] image, after our likenessand let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

The express image of God the Father is the Son, through whom all times and seasons are in:

Heb 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all thingsby whom also he made the worlds; [Greek word “aions” = ages] 

Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his personand upholding all things […times and seasons, the ages..] by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

As disciples, when we lose sight of the outcome of all the ages that the Father is creating us in His express image (the New Man established in true holiness and righteousness in the Father’s kingdom); we remain blinded to the heavenly vision and go spiritually astray. Many have been spiritually wounded by their own earthly lusts, and many strong in knowledge have been spiritually slain by their idols of times and seasons of the Lord.

There is a time and season appointed where every purpose and every work of the Lord is revealed, showing us His beautiful works to the children of men.

Ecc 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

That most beautiful of the Father’s work is briefly comprehended in this secret:

Col 1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, [= the Love / fullness of God..] the hope of glory:

Col 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: 

Col 1:29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

Contrary to our old idolatrous belief, the Gentiles who do not know God at this time also only have one hope, which is in Christ Jesus.

Eph 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

No man that truly comprehend and knows the Truth will dare argue that the elect overcomers, those who are first given to overcome all that is in the world of any age are not special.  They are special, a peculiar people, a beautiful people, not of themselves, but by the reason of the Spirit of Jesus Christ dwelling in their new hearts.

1Pe 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him [God does the work] who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 

1Pe 2:10  Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 

Those elect overcomers were once not a people of God, being spiritual Gentiles themselves [Eph 2:11-13] will also be given the honor of showing the glory, the exceeding riches of the Father’s grace through Jesus Christ to the rest of men that will be gathered in Christ in due time.  These are the greater works the Lord [Phi 2:13] is working in those He chooses in each generation to bring all mankind to Himself in the appointed harvests.

Joh 14:12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

The elect overcomers who are made faithful to the end [Rev 17:14] are not being made God’s handiwork now just so that others less spiritually fortunate [spiritual Gentiles now] can remain permanently in the lesser state.

It is not the Lord’s end purpose or intention to parade His elect of the ages before the rest of men just to show how special to Him they are. We are learning in our judgment that we are nothing of ourselves [Joh 15:5] and no flesh or carnal mind will be sharing in God’s glory.

Rev 14:7  Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. 

Contrary to the false doctrine of the world, God is not a God of just the few because He manifests to a few first. He is the God of the whole heaven and earth, and all will be glorified in Him and will live in the Spirit unto Him at the end of all ages.

Jer 32:27 Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

Luk 20:38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

Mat 13:33  Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures [three harvests] of meal, till the whole was leavened. 

It is the Father’s heart that having kindly shown the few first fruits of His creation His great mercy and riches, to then use that little Body [second harvest of men- see Rewards Study] – also called the Church – to be the channel / mediator [Eph 3:10] to show the rest of men His exceeding riches and bring all mankind into the Body of Christ and partakers of the same precious promises.

Eph 3:5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men as it is NOW revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 

Eph 3:6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: 

 

Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Ecc 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: [= to “present every man perfect in Christ Jesus” ] also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

Every thing beautiful in His time.

All the times and seasons of our lives are all in the hand of God in Christ Jesus.

Psa 31:15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.

We spend much of those times and seasons in the kingdom of this world, living according to the flesh, being blinded by the affairs of the world and being entangled in many carnal things in our hearts and minds. We naturally face many worries of life, anxious for such things as;

Mat 6:31 (ASV) Be not therefore anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

These very things are what God first sets in the natural heart, to keep secret His works from the kingdom of men, the kingdom of this world. It is the world in our natural hearts that keeps us in the realm of spiritual darkness, and the secrets of God many throughout the ages have been seeking to remain hidden from us.

2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 

2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world [our carnally minded father the Devil] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Even though kept secret and hidden to many at this time, the end purpose of God’s work is to make all “beautiful in His time”, that is to say, the establishment of the age lasting kingdom of God within “every man”.

Dan 7:13 (ASV) I saw in the night-visions, and, behold, there came with the clouds of heaven one like unto a son of man, and he came even to the ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Dan 7:14 (ASV) And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all the peoples, nations, and languages should serve HIM: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and HIS kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Dan 7:27 (ASV) And the kingdom and the dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High: his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and ALL dominions shall serve and obey him.

Holding fast to the traditions and principles of Christ so as not to be seduced by the error of the spirit of the Wicked, there is nothing new, whether a covenant, a dominion or a kingdom which is established without first partaking of the old dominion and kingdom. 

Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth [=Lam 3:38] out of the mouth of God.

After the allocated time and seasons under the dominion in the first kingdom of men, the Lord Christ Jesus appears to redeem us from this evil kingdom and its many gods to establish the second, the dominion and age lasting kingdom of the Father.

Heb 10:9  Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, [….=the god of this world. There is a time and season for this taking away....] that he may establish the second.

But when shall these things be?  This thought has troubled many throughout time, from the prophets of old to this present day.

Dan 7:28 (ASV) Here is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts much troubled me, and my countenance was changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

1Pe 1:10 Of which [..time of..] salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 

1Pe 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

We are not left to speculate of the “manner of time”, like many do until this present day piercing themselves with many sorrows. The Lord has not left His own without an answer. The Lord answers those who diligently seek the Truth of when these things must be, and when it shall come to pass in our lives.

Luk 21:7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

Mat 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy [second ] coming, and of the end of the world? [Gk:age]

Hidden in Christ’s answer is that the second coming of himself without “sinful flesh” [Rom 8:3, Heb 9:28].  His second coming within us is without the terrestrial body of flesh and blood.

That is the beginning of the end of the kingdom of this world, in that prepared body. It is an inner event, not one to be looking out’ there.

Heb 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, [=in our hearts and minds] he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:

All is not made instantly glorious or beautiful. It is a process unto perfection where we are imputed the knowledge of evil along the Way.

Ecc 1:13 I applied my heart to inquiring and exploring by wisdom concerning all that is done under the heavens:it is an experience of evil Elohim has given to the sons of humanity to humble them by it.

 Let no man seduce you.

What leads many off the path of holiness and righteousness of Christ is the constant focus on eschatology, outward prophecies of end times and many theologies of men about time that is not of God, but is actually the works of the great dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world.  There is no greater concentration of warnings about deceivers than there is about the times of the end.

Mar 13:5  And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: 

Mar 13:6  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many

The times and seasons are also kept secret “in hidden wisdom”, “parables”, all in the Lord to be revealed in due times. It is signified in scripture in several different ways, all covering the same “one event” [Ecc 9:2-3], covering the time and season God puts Man through to remake us in His image. Only those very few, called the very Elect, will be given the understanding by the Lord in this age and mercifully dragged out of these many deceptions.

Mat 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 

As we go unto perfection in Christ, it is crucial that we have at the forefront of our minds that all the times we speak of is simply “the appointed time of the Father” for each man, at each stage.   The times and seasons relate to the Lord’s work in the heavens and the earth which spiritual words are about His work in the kingdom of God that is within us [Luk 17:21].  The Word which is the fire shall declare His work in us in due time [1Co 3:13]

Time in God’s reasoning is not some linear time on an earthly clock. God is not bound by earth’s time zones or literal seasons. They are all signified times! They point to a deeper living and active (Heb 4:12) spiritual realities in the life of Man.

It is worth repeating the words of the apostles of the Lord again:

Rev 1:1 ….from apostle John: The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified […the times and seasons..] it by his angel unto his servant John:

1Pe 1:11 – Apostle Peter confirms its all SIGNIFIED.

Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, […the times and seasons…] when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

The teacher, minister, elder and apostle to the Gentile Paul tells us first its all hidden language:

1Co 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, [….men’s end times theology and eschatology ..] but in the power of God.

1Co 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: [Gk Aorist tense: ‘being perfected’..] yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this worldthat come to nought: 

1Co 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God […times and seasons for His kingdom..] in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

This study will be using the signified times and seasons in the book of Revelation written by John and comparing those with the other spiritual words of apostle Paul, Peter and the holy men of the Lord. Just as the apostles wrote, we are also writing this study on the foundation of the apostles so that no man appearing as an angel of light can continue to deceive us, to shake or trouble us in mind and spirit.

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. […not literal thousands of years away…but “at hand” to Him who understands in every generation.]

 

1Jo 2:26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.

We are first imposed in this time, held under the dominion of the kings of the earth where outward eschatology is the primary focus of God’s time.

Eze 13:2  Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lord; 

Eze 13:3 Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

Being seduced of men, refreshment of the Holy Spirit is not yet come, (Acts 3:19) and our spiritual lives are far from beautiful in the sight of the Lord taking heed to vanities and many “secret arts”.  As prophesied through the Holy Spirit, many false prophets are preoccupied with these false doctrines of times and seasons of the Lord, dispensing false hopes to their followers and secretly hoping that their words would have effect, when the Lord’s Word does not say or even mean what they say.

Eze 13:6 (BBE) They have seen visions without substance and made use of secret arts, who say, The Lord has said; and the Lord has not sent them: hoping that the word would have effect. 

Eze 13:7 (BBE) Have you not seen a vision without substance and have you not falsely made use of secret arts, when you say, The Lord has said; though I have said nothing?

In this time, we also are first seduced by many false prophets, detailing times of great Armageddon, millennial rule, outward wars and outward taking of dominion over others that keeps the spiritual sight of many off Christ, and causing nothing but terrors, confusions and fears in the heart of many.

Mat 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 

Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 

Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; [= as Christians, angels of Light pointing to Christ as the Light…] and shall deceive many. […about the times of the end of this world (our carnal life) causing many to remain reserved in sin, (reserved unto condemnation, the resurrection of damnation) deceiving many of His second coming (time of salvation) deceiving many of the Sum of the teachings of Christ]

Being snared by this outward focus is all part of the process preparing us for the second coming of the Lord.

Luk 21:9  But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to passbut the end is not by and by.

When the Lord gives us the revelation, when we see it, the time of the end within us is nigh at hand.

Luk 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Time is fulfilled when the fullness of the kingdom of God is established in our hearts. This is a great secret in the Lord’s times and seasons.

Mar 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Contrary to the voice of the serpent deceiving many to look outwardly to maintain his worldly kingdom, the Lord’s purpose from the beginning was to use the kingdom of men for us to have an experience of evil, to taste of death, a basis to discern good and evil, the knowledge of sin, and thereafter to establish His kingdom in true righteousness and holiness.

It was never for an establishment or ‘restoration’ of a carnal kingdom where men rule over men.  That is already the kingdom of men we are first held in by nature.

The kingdom of God the Lord is establishing is where “every man” will partake and be presented to the Father “without spot or blemish” (Eph 5:27) of sin.  No carnal kingdom will be restored at the Lord’s second coming, no matter how many prayers are offered up.

Act 1:6 When they, therefore, were come together, […after the Lord had risen from death, His second coming to them…] they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore AGAIN the kingdom to Israel? 

Christ already gave a good witness before the governor of Judea, Pontius Pilate, this timeless confession:

Joh 18:35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?

Joh 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

 This question of restoring the kingdom to Israel according to the flesh reveals what was in the heart of the disciples at “this time”, even until this day. The kingdom and its dominion were still physical to them, as in the kingdom of this world they were accustomed to. That is all they were given to comprehend at that time.

Christ changes not, and He showed them that He was not interested at all to establish a physical kingdom during His time in the flesh.

Joh 6:15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

Restoring rulership outwardly over others was the immature disciples’ primary concern at that time.  It was still not revealed nor understood that the Lord’s kingdom is far from what we thought it was.

Here is Christ’s answer to such unconverted minds:

Act 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power

But the time does come where it will all be revealed, and we will know the times or the seasons the Father has put in His own power, His own Word.

The Father’s Time.

The Father’s own power is manifested in His times and seasons.  It is not in earthly linear time zones, but the spiritual realm that many learned disciples of this world are yet ignorant about. The times and seasons works through the power of the holy spirit which is to dwell in us.

Act 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: [=the Spirit of Life] and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Receiving power when the Holy Spirit of God comes upon us, is the receiving of the Spirit of the King, in His kingdom.

The consuming fire of God comes upon us, in a continual process of time to the end, as cloven fire to destroy/remove all the kingdom of the world within us that are made, so that the age lasting kingdom of our Lord be established.

Heb 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 

Heb 12:27 And this word, Yet once moresignifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, […all the kingdom of this world that is passing away…] that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

Heb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, [=“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you”let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

The shaking of the earth is signified as the same fire that the Lord sends to every man within, each in his own order.

Luk 12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

This earthquake or fire results in the receiving of the kingdom which cannot be moved that is spoken of in Hebrews and is the very same kingdom of our Lord of His Christ.

Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

This deep inner process of the Kingdom of God being established within is written in greater signified detail in the book of Revelation foreshadowed in the book of Daniel. The times and seasons of this mighty works of God in our heavens are not to be taken literally nor in an outward earthly sense as many do.

We must be reminded once again that the Lord’s words are to be fulfilled in us (Col 1:25) not to be put in past outward ages, nor postponed to outward future times.

Eze 12:25 For I am the Lord: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord God.

The time at hand is for the kingdom of God to be established.

The book of Revelation of Jesus Christ by John, the others apostles, the Old Testament prophets like Daniel, are detailing the removal of the old kingdom through a fiery event to establish the new kingdom in all men, beginning at a few chosen in the house of God in every generation (1Pet 4:17)

A major stumbling block about the Father’s time many are yet ignorant about is this very Truth we are warned not to ignore:

Psa 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

Peter who tells us we should gird our loins at the Revelation of Jesus Christ gives us this great key to understanding God’s time:

1Pe 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, […in the revelation of Jesus Christ...] that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years [with the Lord] as one day.

We will now take a closer look of some signified times in Scripture, and how these are fulfilled in not only our lives, but in others in the age to come.

 The thousand year reign of death.

For us to comprehend the times and seasons of God’s kingdom, we must know where the old kingdom to be done away with is, and where the new kingdom of God is to be established.

It must first be revealed to us who the king of the old kingdom is, and the times and seasons of his ruling before a new king removes him and sits on His throne.

Before the second coming of the Lord unto salvation (Heb 9:28), all the apostles reminded us of our time in the kingdom of darkness, that is, in “times past of our life”.…

1Pe 4:3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

Before being called out into His marvelous light, we were not His people, being under the reign of the king of the beast, in the kingdom of spiritual darkness.

Rom 9:25 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. 

Rom 9:26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

 

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

1Pe 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

Being under the wisdom and faith of men of this world transformed as messengers of Christ is to be under the power of darkness, kingdom of darkness of the beast…which beast we are by nature. (Eccl 3:18)

Col 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

Rev 16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

But even before being under darkness brought by the Law, before any commandment came to Man, the carnal mind, spiritual death reigned in the first Adam for a time and season.

He who has been delivered power over the carnal mind, Satan, is given to reign over all men for a symbolic “thousand year” as signified by John. This living and active time of our walk is the same time period apostle Peter and Paul reveal the spirit of Satan being bound in the heart of Man, as synagogue of Satan, as a wife is bound to her husband, as we all are first bound to the Law of sin and death. (Rom 7:2)

Psa 25:14 The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 

Rev 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

Rom 5:13 (For until the law sin was in the world: [=Bound in our hearts, “in our members” Rom 7:23 ] but sin [..like fruit of being deceived / under a strong delusion..] is not imputed WHEN there is no law.

Rom 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, [= Satan is bound in the sinful body of flesh, body of sin/death…] even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, [=not sinned without the law, that is, sin reigned in the beasts in the sea and upon the earth for a signified thousand years…] who is the figure of him that was to come. [=…when that signified time, appointed time of the Father we live in that sin is fulfilled/finished..]

 

Rom 7:8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. […and deception!]  For without the law […though Satan bound within ] sin was dead.

When there is no law, “without the law”, sin has no strength. Sin is dead.

1Co 15:56 The sting of death is sinand the strength of sin is the law.

“Sin was dead” does not mean we were righteous in the sight of God.  It means the Law did not yet reveal the exceedingly sinful nature of sin to us. The mystery of iniquity is at work during this time (2Th 2:7).

Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Rev 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

 The beast we are to make war with is the same law in our members warring against the law of Christ.

 Rom 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.]

For how long (symbolically) does this law of sin have power over us and we cry to be delivered from this wretched state?

Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 

Rev 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. [=the elect overcomers]

Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. [= for symbolic “forty two months”]

Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Let us bear this in mind with hearing ears. We are being told who “the (spiritual) dead” in the book of Revelation are here in this verse.

Rev 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

 Rom7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

It is in this forty-two months, (3 years and 6 months) “a thousand years” signified that we are dead to Christ, not written in the book of life of the Lamb, we are FILLING up the lusts of our flesh, “fulfilling” the lusts of the mind against the righteousness of Christ, standing up against the Prince of princes, plainly speaking, sin having dominion over us.

Dan 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

Dan 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: […all given from above, the dragon giving power to the beast in us..] and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

Dan 8:25 (Darby) And through his cunning […laws of death causing sin to abound] shall he cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he will magnify himself in his heart, and by prosperity will corrupt many; and he will stand up against the Prince of princes: but he shall be broken without hand.

This is the time we are serving the king of death, typified as king Of Babylon for a symbolic seventy years, same signification as the thousand years reign of death when we were all sold under sin (Rom 7:14) before the second appearing of the great Judge.

Jer 25:11 And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.

Jer 25:12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the Lord, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.

In New Testament application, this is each of us at appointed times and seasons:

Psa 25:14 The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

1Ti 1:13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: [=means causing damage, harm, hurtful to others…] but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

 

Eph 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Eph 2:2 Wherein in time past […bound to Satan..] ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Eph 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

This time period is the same signified time of our walk, “all the world”, “all flesh” under the dominion of the Law of sin and death for “a thousand years.”

Rom 3:19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

Rom 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

 

Rom 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

The governors and tutors we are kept under are the guardians of the Law before this thousand years of death is expired.

Gal 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up […and bound to the Law of death..] unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

 

Gal 4:2 But is under tutors and governors […for 42 months= a thousand years..] until the time appointed of the father.

Gal 4:3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:

The works of the flesh during the symbolic forty-two months / thousand years.

The Apostle Peter wrote speaking of Paul’s epistles [2Pe 3:16], saying there are some things hard to understand in the Scriptures that many will twist to their own destruction.  The times and seasons of the Lord written using many different names and symbols are such hard things to understand when we depart from the simplicity that is Christ and His plan for salvation to every man.  A quick overlay of the plan using other more simpler words will help us to comprehend the sayings regarding signified times.

Joh 2:19  Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 

Joh 2:20  Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 

Joh 2:21  But he spake of the temple of his body [which temple and body we are – 1Co 3:16]

As mentioned earlier, Satan being bound on the earth is not a positive thing as many have twisted Revelation 20 to say.  Having the spirit of death and carnality bound in us is not positive except that it is used to bring our true sinful nature to light.  This binding of Satan to us in the bottomless pit, which is the earth, is the same as the Lord putting the dragon, also known as Leviathan into the sea within every man.  Satan is bound there until the Lord looses him to bring the occasion for judgment.

Isa 27:1  In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea

The simplicity of Christ has God making all things new in a three-day process.  Like Christ and as Christ, it is only on the third day we are being perfected [Luk 13:32].  Holding fast principles of rightly dividing the Word, we also know one day is a thousand years meaning the 1,000 years reign of death and the following 1,000 year reign of righteousness is more plainly speaking of the second and third day of the Lord’s plan for every man.

Day 1:  We are in the sea, not yet called of God.  Death and sin still reigns in us even though the law [commands of Christ, the gospel] has not come.  An even simpler view of this is to see Day 1 as our time in Egypt or the World.

Day 2:  We are called onto the earth, given truth to hear the commands.  The transition from Day 1 to Day 2 is when we begin to hear the Law of Christ and begin to understand the commandment.  Satan is bound in the pit of our flesh [sea] we have no power yet given to overcome the wicked one or the sin that dwells in us.  We hear and preach the gospel from heaven but need to wait on the day of the Lord to come, the third day for Christ to bring the fire.  The man in us reigns with Christ for this day [1,000 years] but the rest of the dead within us, the 2/3rds will not arise or be awakened until Satan is loosed on the earth.

Rev 20:5  But the rest of the dead lived not again until [AFTER] the thousand years [Day 2] were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Day 2 is also our time in Babylon [orthodoxy being just the shadow].  Seventy years in Babylon is the same as 1,000 years wherein sin and death reigns. Day 2 is also our time of living out the resurrection of damnation, being a religious beast [Rev 13:11] hearing the Law/commands, cleaning up the outside of the cup yet we continue to deceive ourselves.

Rev 13:14  And [Your Beast] deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Day 2 is the shadow of the true resurrection of Christ that all men live out beginning with the Elect in this age.  We think we are alive yet continue to take pleasure in unrighteousness remaining spiritually dead in our sins.

1Ti 5:6  But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

When we hear the word but cannot do the word, we deceive ourselves.  Satan being kicked out of heaven by the truth, does not deceive us during this season, but we deceive ourselves thinking knowing the truth is all that matters.

Jas 1:22  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 

1Jn 1:8  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 

There are two kinds of deception, doctrine and the act or the doing.  When we hear the law of Christ with ears prepared to hear, Satan can no longer deceive us of the truth.  But we do indeed deceive ourselves as we pursue gain from our supposed godliness not yet having the power from upon high.

2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

2Ti 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, [=DAY 2 upon the earth..] deceiving, and being deceived.

Our deception Day 2, the same being the 1,000 year reign of the flesh and death, is accomplished by the many false prophets that have gone into the world within and without ourselves.

2Jo 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, [=transition from day 1 to day 2..] who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

1Jo 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 

The release of Satan at the end of Day 2, the 1,000 years is a blessing as it brings the occasion for the fire and coming of Christ to redeem us from our sins.

Day 3:  The day of the Lord comes and the wicked one is exposed by the light and fire falling from heaven.  We see the abomination of desolation and are hearts are turned back to the Lord and pursuing righteousness.  The old man and carnal mind is now being consumed daily in the fire [lake of fire].  We won’t realize we were deceived until we are first overcome by sin killed in Babylon [Egypt and Sodom] and then called up hither with the Lord.

Rev 11:11  And after three days and an half [the 1,000 years] the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 

Rev 11:12  And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them

In Day 3, the fire of the lake of fire is revealing the truth and exposing the wicked man that had been ruling over all of our inward earth.

2Th 2:8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 

2Th 2:9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 

2Th 2:10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, [=Gospel of TRUTH preached but unrighteous act continues, secret, presumptions sins within the Cup..] that they might be saved. 

With that reminder of the high-level plan expressed in the three days, let’s return our focus back to Day 2 which is the 1,000-year reign of flesh.

The preaching and our hearing of the age lasting gospel by the messengers of Christ -the angel – to “they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations” of the earth is a pivotal time and season when sin takes occasion to revive the old man of sin in “they that dwell upon the earth”, (Rev 11:9-10) that is, in our earthly members.

Rev 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,  

Sin is at work and takes occasion behind the spiritual words being preached.

To the inhabitants of “the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,” this age lasting gospel remains hidden to them during the signified thousand years, forty two months, three and a half years season.

The god of the kingdom of darkness blinds their minds, having been given power to have dominion over them for that same period of time the angels (New Man within) is preaching the testimony of Jesus Christ to them that dwell upon the earth.

It is “the letters” of the word being preached that the god of this world uses to blind the minds of the inhabitants of the earth. (2Cor 3:6)

2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: [= the spiritual dead upon the earth]

2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

The preaching of the gospel is the commandment coming in, giving power and making alive [see Being Raised With Christ Study] the old man of sin in our members.  The beasts “overcome [us] them and power is given this beast over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations within for forty and two months.”

Rev 13:5  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

This is our time of rebellion in the spiritual wilderness where our flesh is nourished of the face of the serpent, our fleshly father the devil (John 8:44) for “times, time and dividing of times”, that is to say, three and a half years following Christ after the flesh.

Dan 9:5  We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments: [=in the Law,,.not as sinners of the other Gentiles who have not been committed God’s precepts and Judgments – the Gospel..]  

Dan 9:6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

 

Heb 3:8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

 Heb 3:12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, [...in the spiritual wilderness..] in departing from the living God. […from His commandments]

 

Rom 7:8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. [=strong lust/desire.] For without the law sin was dead.

Rom 7:9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, [=via the preaching of the gospel…] sin revived, and I died.

Rom 7:10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.

The fulfillment of this Word in our flesh takes place for the length of seventy signified years [=1000 years reign of death] for our sins to be filled up, for the transgressions to cease growing. The diminishing of sin then begins from the day of the Lord. The new birth [being born again] then begins to usher in age lasting righteousness.

Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

The entirety of the 1,000 year reign of death [“Day two”] is there to show us there is no good thing dwelling in us and we are indeed chief of sinners, an abomination, a wretched man who needs a physician.  It is our Romans 7 experience.

The innumerable works of the flesh manifests in the inhabitants of the earth, in a measure in each man, but power to overcome them has not yet been received from on high.

Rom 7:5 For when we were in the flesh, [=signified time period of 42 months, 3.5 years, 1000 years, 3.5 days…] the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.

There are not two gospels. There is only one gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Howbeit, sin taking occasion by the preaching of the gospel brings to light all manners of spiritual perversion and idolatries to the hearers in all nations of the earth, because the great dragon, called Satan and his angels sits in the temple of God [within our members] showing himself to be God at this time. (2Thess2:4)

Luk 8:17 (NKJV) For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known and come to light.

Rom 2:16 (NKJV) in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.

Through the power delivered unto the devil for a short time, the hearers of all kindreds, and tongues, and nations upon the earth are soon removed unto “another gospel”, which is not another, but a perversion of the Word.

Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

Gal 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

The spiritual Word preached by the angel from heaven (from Scripture) is not understood by those upon the earth at this time, and the Wicked one comes to catch it away in those preached to.

Mat 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, […preached by angel from heaven, that is, to our mind and hearts..] and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

To one ear, of the converted heart, the gospel is heard, understood and bears much fruit of the Spirit. To another, yet unconverted under the Law, the gospel not mixed with the faith of Jesus, brings forth briers and thorns, the works of the flesh for “seventy weeks”…“forty two months.”

Heb 4:2 For unto us was the gospel preached, [= inhabitants of heaven -Eph 2:6] as well as unto them: [=inhabitants of the earth – Rev 8:13] but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

Having no faith equals having no power; and this is our position in Day 2 that is this 1,000 year reign of death.  We know truth but cannot do it and instead of the Word profiting us at this time we are overcome by the beast within [Rev 11:7, Rev 13:7) being dead wherein we were held in the bottomless pit [Rom 7:6].

1Pe 4:6 For this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

Without faith, we are double-minded and our prayers are not answered [Jam 1:7, Pro 1:28].  One must have faith and then the grace of God [Eph 2:9] which are the fiery trials of the lake of fire will work the work of salvation in us [our Day 3].

Mat 17:20  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 

The Word is then corrupted, revealing all manners of concupiscence (ungodly lusts) in our members. The angels of Satan, signified as the false prophet and prophetess are then gone out into all the world, the four corners of the earth to deceive, producing bad fruit.

2Pe 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, […. we must focus on within our life first, the primary emphasis of Scripture …] even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2Pe 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

It is during this time of our lives, outside the kingdom of God as Gentiles in the flesh, [ Eph 2v11-12] that we – our flesh- are given to trod without the court, speaking blasphemies against God as natural brute beasts we are, (2Pet 2:12, Eccl 3:18)  speaking great words of vanities.

We understand not what we say or are affirming, speaking evil of what we do not understand, doing the will of the Gentiles that know not God.(1Thess 4:5)

Rev 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city [=Jerusalem] shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

 

Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. [the law of sin and death]

Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things [=doing the will of the uncircumcised in the heart Gentiles..] shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

The will of the Gentiles manifests in us during this time, as we are caused to sacrifice to devils, thinking we are converted Jews but spiritually still of the synagogue of Satan.

1Pe 4:3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, [=shall they tread under foot forty and two months] when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

 1Co 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.

This is a time (though we knew it not) we were killing the Lord’s prophets preaching the gospel to us upon the earth performing many abominable acts in the spirit.  We receive the knowledge of the Truth through the gospel, but being spiritually dead cannot comprehend it. This lack of comprehension causes us to trod on the Truth unawares,

Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,..…

….Heb 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, [=the Truth] and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

Counting the word of God unholy before men, slaying the Son of God within us is what is meant by trodding over the holy city for this time and season. The suffering of those that will not bow down to the idol is always “without the gate”.

Heb 13:12 (NKJV) Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate.

Heb 13:13 (NKJV) Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach.

The great dragon continues “for forty two months” empowering our flesh to blaspheme against the Truth that will later judge us.  This is all a living and active event being fulfilled in our lives for a season.

Rev 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Like Saul of Tarsus, we were breathing slaughter against those disciples of the Lord that believe the Truth, and would not bow down to false doctrines. We, in our hearts [in our earth], magnify ourselves against God in ignorance, prospering in sin and accomplishing our indignation against the Truth and those that dwell therein, till we have our ‘road to Damascus’ moment!

Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.  

Dan 11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.  

Dan 11:38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god [..another Jesus..] whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.  

Dan 11:39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds [= strong holds of our mind and hearts..] with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain [= Spiritual Babylon, making merchandise]

 

Act 8:1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time […for “42 months” for Saul..-] there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.  

Act 8:2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.  

Act 8:3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.

Those the beast overcomes, still held in death that Satan has power over for “42 months, a thousand years” are captured to do His will even after the saints [‘his servants the prophets”] witness to them.

Dan 9:9 To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;

Dan 9:10 Neither have we obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.

 

2Ti 2:24 And the servant of the Lord [the prophets] must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,  

2Ti 2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; […as angels from heaven preaching to them for seventy weeks/ forty two months , as Christ in the days of His flesh” preaching “REPENT, for the kingdom of God is at hand”...] if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; […God will give them repentance, but only after a certain time are first fulfilled…]

2Ti 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the   snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.  

Again, this is all primarily to be understood inwardly.  Our flesh dominating and killing our desire to do the righteousness of Christ, as sin reigns in the flesh, body of death to do the will of the dragon is for a season.

Act 9:1 And Saul, yet […His time of reformation was yet to be fulfilled..]  breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,

Rev 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, […as Stephen did..] the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

This time is the peak of our powers following Christ after the flesh, as we trod upon the Truth by our lies and deceptions of our righteousness which is all just self-righteousness, yet we know it not in our deception.   We think we serve God, but we are serving sin and the lusts of our flesh. An example in understanding these times and seasons is the life of Apostle Paul:

Gal 1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:[=for a signified 42 months/1000 years, 3.5 years.]

When the Lord comes to save us, He opens our eyes to our self deception and serving of self and the blindness we had in our proud fleshly heart.

This symbolic time and season is the time of great tribulation to the old man to the end that the new man being manifested in us.  This great trial came upon the disciples of the Lord, the Devil and his angels, the false prophets seeking to kill the saints of the most High.

To the one, like Stephen, as “the two witnesses”, the length of time of this great tribulation trial that came upon them are all symbolically the same time of suffering- “42 months”, “10 days” etc where the saints are slaughtered, the other edge (time) of the same sword.

Rev 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: [=killed all day, slaughter etc..] be thou faithful unto death [of the old man], and I will give thee a crown of life.

Rev 2:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those [ten] days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

The nourishing of that woman Jezebel [Spiritual Babylon] in our flesh, is during our wilderness experience as we “enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season” (Heb 11:25) …for a signified “thousand two hundred and threescore days”, which is “forty two months”, which is also “three and half years”.

Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. [=forty two months]

Heb 3:8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: […. for how long is our hearts hardened and our old man tempt God in our life..?]

Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, [=forty two months] from the face of the serpent.

The reign of death in us is this time when we are not conscious of Satan’s deceptions; yet are deceived and led astray by feeding on our own lusts for gain and hence we merchandise the things of God not even aware of we are doing it.  At this time, we don’t know it yet, but Babylon within us is fallen and the spiritually dead nations within us have been fornicating with the harlot and getting rich by our gain seeking to satisfy our lusts.

Rev 18:3  For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 

Our coming out of deceptions such as the outward Millennium Reign and greater rewards for the Elect are a great example. Mercifully, this time comes to an end and the Lord moves all men onto maturity and transition into Day 3 which is the day of the Lord where Christ will reign on both the heaven and the earth within us, putting all enemies under His feet.

Jer 23:5  Behold, the days come [1,000 year reign of righteousness, Day 3], saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Rev 5:10  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

The time comes when the two witnesses finish their testimony to the inhabitants of the earth. The thousand years is fulfilled / expired and the Lord moves us along in His plan.  The next section of the study and Part 4 of the series will looking further into the details of “when” or how long this season where death reigns will continue.

“ How long O Lord?”

What is in the heart of the saints of the most High is to reign as kings with Christ in His kingdom, to fulfil the word of God. (Col 1:25)

It is for God’s kingdom to be established in them, to be redeemed from the earth through the destruction of the kingdom of the beast within.

Rev 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Our cry to the Father as we the prophets are being slaughtered because of the earnest of the Spirit of Christ in us (the refined “the third part” that is converted in our hearts) being persecuted by the great whore, is simply “how long O Lord” to take vengeance upon those that destroys the earth, (the rest of the dead in our lives) “how long O Lord” before your kingdom comes and is fully established in our new earth?

Dan 12:6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? 

Dan 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

We look for the hastening of the Lord’s kingdom to come, through judgment of the great harlot who still sits on our beast, the dark kingdom of this world to be dethroned in our hearts.  We look for when “ all these things shall be finished.”

What things to be finished again?

It is simply the end of the dominion, kingdom of the beast in our lives.  The end of “the man of sin” ..’in our members” that makes desolation to our desire to “perform good”.

Mar 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Rom 7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. [=THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION standing in the holy place of our hearts- THIS IS THE MAN OF SIN.]

Rom 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

It is this man of sin in our members that is “the dead” spoken throughout the book of Revelation.

It is by this spiritually dead man (our old man) that the Truth is cast down in us, our daily sacrifice– Jesus Christ is trampled upon- (1Cor 5:7) the sanctuary of God is left defiled as prophesied by the prophet Daniel:

Dan 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken awayand the place of his sanctuary was cast down. 

Dan 8:12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgressionand it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

Yes…we all are given to prosper in our flesh for a season according to the course of this world, as we cast down the truth and kill the Lord’s servants.

Rev 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:

Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How longO Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 


Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: [=Michael the archangel, typifying Christ Jesus, whose voice we hear- Jude 1:9 / 1Thes 4:16 ] and there shall be a time of troublesuch as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: [=the time of the great tribulation of the flesh/old man is about to begin, “the time of the dead, that they be judged”...]  and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Before that comes to pass, before every one is delivered, before salvation comes even to the Jews first and then Gentiles,  “the times of the Gentiles within ”’must first be fulfilled in us, which takes “forty two months” while we walk after the flesh, being under the Law.

Luk 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, [=Rom 8:36] and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. […Rev 11:2..” for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.”.]

Rom 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake [=the witness/testimony of Christ] we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

That woman Jezebel within us is first given time to repent of herself as “the two witness”, “ the holy apostles and prophets”, “the servants of the Lord” testify against her evil deeds. We come to see during that “forty two months” of testimony of Jesus Christ, it is not in her power (in us) to repent. It has to be given by the goodness of the Lord. (Rom 4:2)

Rev 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

 

Rev 16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

Rev 16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven [..= as Saul of Tarsus -1 Tim 1:13 Who was before a blasphemerand a persecutor, and injurious:...] because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

This is the time we also are in emotional pain of sins, seeing the wretchedness within us, seeing the darkness of evil, sin in our members, but repentance is hid from us.

Rom 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: […=”and his kingdom was full of darkness”…] for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good […and repent from the evil ..] I find not.  

Rom 7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

As the angel is preaching the gospel from heaven, ( the two witnesses) our hearts remains hardened in this time and season.  There is no rain to bring forth fruit.

Rev 11:6 These [two witnesses] have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: [= verse 3 “a thousand two hundred and threescore days (1,260, which is forty two months] and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all [seven] plagues, as often as they will.

The judgment and vengeance of the Lord upon those that dwell on the earth, (the spiritually dead old man within us, the great whore Babylon) those that kills “the two witnesses” takes place only AFTER the testimony of the two witnesses are finished, only after their flesh of Christ are spiritually killed, “the daily sacrifice” that is, our Lord is crucified in that great city and taken away.

Dan 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, [=Christ crucified] and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 

The gospel of the kingdom has to be preached by the angels / servants the prophets for a signified “a thousand years..forty two months…seventy weeks… a thousand two hundred and threescore days (1,260)…three and a half years…and as prophesied by Daniel the same symbolic time of “a thousand two hundred and ninety days” (1,290), our symbolic lifetime in the flesh, before the end of the body of death, the judgment of our flesh- the death of death – comes.

No man is saved or delivered from the abomination of desolation (the old man) UNTIL the gospel is first preached to our world, in our life.

Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; […for the time period above…(Rev 11:3)..]  and then shall the end come. 

Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, [Rom 7:13] spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

It is the symbolic “two witness”, the spirit of Christ in us that brings edification, exaltation and comfort to men within (1Cor 14:3) and to others without. We prophesy in that great city – REIGNING in righteousness with Christ for the same “time, times and half a time” mentioned so far.

This is the fire from heaven in the mouth of the two witness.

Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

Rev 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth,  [= the Word of God – Jer 5:14, Jer 23:29and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

The time of the dead to be judged in the flesh.

After the Lord is crucified and we with Him (Gal 2:20- a living and active process) we must tarry a little season for the Lord to come a second time, (fifty days-Pentecost) to raise us to Life, to commit to us the power of judgment.

Rev 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.


Rev 11:11 And after three days and an half […after a “little season”] the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

For our flesh to be judged and go into perdition, the power of God must first be given to “our inner man”, [Eph 3:16]. This same “inward man” [Rom 7:22] must be first raised to Life and manifest in us.

Act 1:8 But ye shall receive powerafter that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

After the Holy Spirit is come, after the thousand years is finished signifying the time for the old man’s reign of death to come to an end, judgment of that old man of sin that destroy the earth, that makes it an abomination to be inhabited by the New Man begins.

The end of the thousand year reign of the beast is the time of the dead to be judged within us, the destruction of the flesh begins thereafter.

It is “a time of trouble”… a time of “great tribulation” such as not been since the foundation of the world, that is, the birth of our flesh.

Dan12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

 

Mat 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Rev 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

1Pe 4:5 Who shall give account to him that is READY to judge the quick and the dead.

The judgment of the Lord is always ready, not just future or past. Peter has spoken of this event before, but few comprehended he was speaking of the events of Scripture coming to pass in his life.

Act 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:……

Act 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, [=the angels that fly in the midst of heaven -Rev 14:6..] and to testify that it is he […the angels are those that have the testimony of Jesus Christ Rev 12:17, 19:10..] which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.

Who are those “quick” and “dead” the scripture speaks of judging? Paul reveals in a few words.

2Co 5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 

2Co 5:15 And that he died for all, that they which live [=the quick] should not henceforth live unto themselves , but unto him which died for them, and rose again. [=now become part of the armies of Christ, the elect overcomers]

Christ through his sinful flesh, and being first to be raised into a spiritual body, is the first begotten of the dead.

Rev 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead.

1Th 3:8 For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord.

Now, when and where do all these events take place…?

2Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead […when? —>] at his appearing […where? —>] and his kingdom;

1Pe 4:6 For this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

The judgment is and will be taking place “in the flesh”… so we can live in the Spirit. The same apply for all men in all the three harvest.

When Scripture talks about judgment “in the flesh”, it is in the terrestrial body of the old man, a carnal spirit in an unclean spiritual body, that Christ comes to judge and put away. It is this carnal spirit that is also part of flesh that the people of God are to separate from less we be swallowed of the earth in the gainsaying of Korah.

Num 16:21  Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment. 

Num 16:22  And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? 

The Lord’s judgment does not carry a greater weight whether it is done in the physical body, or for many, judgment commencing after their physical death. It has not been revealed nor comprehended by many the depth of the Lord’s words about “flesh”.

Joh 6:63  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. 

We do not get a greater price or a better reward because we are now being judged in this age in a physical body. It is unclean spirits that are being judged throughout the ages.

“In the flesh” now for God’s elect of today, “in the flesh” for those judged in times past as in the days of the apostle Paul, Peter, et al and many sinners will be judged in the age to come after being raised to terrestrial glory [having the carnal body/mind of the old man – 1Cor 15:40-42].

It is a false doctrine that God shows partiality of rewards for those being judged in the physical body now.  God is no respecter of the sinful body of death, which we all are put into before the Lord remakes us all.

Jer 18:4  And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. 

This is what John is also writing to us in signified letters. Keeping the word of the prophecy of this book, John is speaking the same things as written in the gospels:

Rev 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, [=“he commanded us to preach unto the people,”…] having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, [….Matthew 10:5-6 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel] and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, [=The spiritual Dead]

Rev 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: [=1 Pet 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?…] and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

The judgment of the dead is brought on by the preaching of the gospel, the doctrine of Jesus Christ.

Rev 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Rev 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

A little season?

Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, [=the Law enters through the false prophets that sin may abound in the bottomless pit, our hearts, the deep- Rom 10:7

Rev 20:8 And shall go out […as an angel of light seeking whom to devour…] to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

All the sins in the world, our lust of the flesh, our lust of the eyes, and our pride of life [1Jo 2:16] are gathered to battle against Christ. If we say we have not gathered in our deception to war against righteousness, to sin, we deceive ourselves. We are yet are at war against the Truth, on the wrong side of God.

This little season is one and the same “short time” the Devil has to come down to the elects of God, [New Man in our earthen vessels] when he is “loosed for a little season” to wage war / battle against them with all his angels/messengers he has gathered up. This is again our lifetime walking in the flesh and after the flesh, warring against God, till our fleshly indignation is ended.

Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

Dan 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

This is the same signified “short time” the spirit of the world inhabits us, as our flesh bring forth fruits unto death overcoming the saints. This is all a war in our minds and hearts, a war of the old man of sin against the new man being created in the express image of the Father.

Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Rev 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seedwhich keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

 

2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, [=“the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ”…] that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

2Co 4:8 We are troubled on every side, [..the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time…]  yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 

2Co 4:9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

For what purpose is Satan being loosed out of his prison within us, as we keep the saying of the prophecy of this book? [Rev 1:3, Rev 22:9]

The prison Satan is bound, as discussed earlier, is simply the body of this death.  Our body of death is also known as the bottomless pit, and the deep or the sea within us; where the man of sin dwells. The king of lies is also the father of all lies, who is the devil that dwells there with our man of sin.

Rev 9:11  And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. 

As a wife is bound to his husband, so are we are also bound to the law of sin and death [Rom 7:1-3] which is in our members. The loosing of Satan out of his prison is to bring an end to the ministration, dominion and reign of death [2Cor 3:7-11] within every man. The wicked one is also known as leviathan and it is the same day, that being “that day”, in which the dragon is slain in the lake of fire.

Isa 27:1  In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. 

The carnal commandments and ordinances [Heb 7:16/Heb 9:10], its times and seasons are imposed upon us through the carnal mind, until the time of reformation which is the coming of the Lord with fire. The end of the thousand years reign of death is the beginning of this time of reformation, the time of refreshing of the Lord which is the destruction of death within us in the lake of fire.  Our beast, false prophet and father the devil, collectively the wicked within us will all be consumed in that appointed time for every man.

2Th 2:6  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 

2Th 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 

2Th 2:8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

The end outcome is to have “death no more”, and to usher in a new kingdom where righteousness dwells. This loosing of Satan after having first been bound, is the occasion needed to gather “all flesh” for its eventual destruction and purification in the great day of the Lord.

It is a living and active event to the elect of God throughout the ages.

This is the beginning of the day of the Lord, at His second coming without sin. Blessed are we when we endure to that day, signified by the prophet Daniel:

Dan 12:11  And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days

Then a little season of waiting in one accord for the Lord to come in the Spirit …some extra fifty days of tarrying to the day of Pentecost for the Truth to be revealed. The seven seals sealing the “little book” begin to open for us to comprehend the Truth.

Dan 12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

Dan 12:13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

The end of the flesh of Christ, “end of the days” being crucified, the end of His ministry in the flesh [3.5 years] is signified “a thousand two hundred and ninety days, plus adding the waiting period of His second coming fifty days, is further signified as “the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

All things are said and spoken in parables and similitude’s [Hos 12:10, Mat 13:9] to confound the wisdom of the wise and hide the truths from all but those given spiritual ears and eyes.  The days in Daniel are not literal days we calculate by man’s timelines.

As the seven spirits of God equals the one spirit of God, these are beyond man’s wisdom. These times are not comprehended by gazing at the face of the sky, or pulling out an Hebrew, Jewish or a Gregorian calendar!

Rev 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

Eph 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

These are spiritual times and seasons of waiting upon the Lord been spoken about.

1Co 1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: […”blessed is he that waits to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days”.]

The disciples of the Lord were blessed to wait to this time, even as we continue to wait for the Holy Spirit of promise of the Father.

Act 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, [….signified “the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days”…]  which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

Waiting for the promise of the Father is to be waiting (we continue waiting patiently) for the fiery doctrine to be revealed in the “last times”, after been hidden for “forty-two months…thousand years…time, times and half a time” etc. to our flesh.

Rom 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. […the fiery Law of God, the doctrine of Christ in His people, which is signified as (the lake of) fire.]

Deu 33:2 And he said, The Lord came from Sinai, [Heb 12:22-29] and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.

Satan continues to be loosed as the time is being fulfilled in us for its destruction.

Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth….[=1260 days= 42 months, 3.5yrs..etc ]

Rev 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit [=And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison…shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 

Christ in the days of His flesh, as type and shadow, gave up the ghost after three and half years of ministry.  At that very time, none of those disciples with Him were converted in heart, and were still spiritually dead having no comprehension of Christ.

Joh 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. [= testify of the Father

Christ glorified the Father on the earth in the days of His flesh (in a parable/ figure) by doing His works, testifying of Him. At the end of that time, (the signified thousand years under the reign of the Law, the kings of the earth) the beast ascended out of the bottomless pit- Satan and his angels- to put His flesh to death.

Mat 26:57 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled….

Mat 26:59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;

Joh 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

 

1Th 2:14 For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: 

1Th 2:15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; […after testifying of Jesus Christ...] and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: 

It is the little season after this, not very long, that judgment of those that killed the two witnesses, those that denied and betrayed him comes upon them.  This is the vengeance of the Lord on all the inhabitants of the earth.

This begins shortly after the Lord rises from the grave in power and glory.

Then our dead body – old man- is RAISED (an is, was and will be process) with power also after the thousand years are fulfilled. This is spiritually one and the same time as “three and half days” after being cast out of the synagogue of Israel, killed by those elders of Israel, the Pharisees and Sadducees that falsely think they are doing God a service.

Joh 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, […end of the three and half days, 42 months, three and half years / 1000years..] that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service

Joh 16:3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

 

Rev 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: [….in spiritual Sodom and Egypt..] nevertheless I live; yet not Ibut Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Our former self and families, the inhabitants of the earth will see our old dead self and will not suffer us to walk with them any longer. This is the beginning of a great blessing as we are being resurrected from the grave, “com[ing] up hither” from the dead church that we once thought was alive in the Spirit.

Rev 11:8 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations [=of spiritual Sodom and Egypt, where all the Lord’s servants are killed...] shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

Rev 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. [=they dwell in the grave, and suffer you not to be part of their Spiritually dead church.]

Luk 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, [=shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves…] and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.

Gal 4:17 They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, [..=and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. ..] that ye might affect them.

The second coming of the Lord is a terrible time to our flesh.

Rev 11:11 And after three days and an half [after the “little season”the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them [=those yet walking after the flesh hates your Truth, the doctrine of Christ and being very fearful eagerly cast you away from their company ..] which saw them.

This is the time of Pentecost when we begin to be raised to the third heaven, and great power is given to our New Man to judge the rest of the dead.

Rev 1:17 And when I saw him, [=…with the spirit of Life..] I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

Rom 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead [=I fell at his feet as dead.] because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

The great throne judgment of the Lord in us takes place at the end of the thousand years reign of death, and it is the giving of the kingdom (fire) to the beast, destroying the last enemy (our carnal mind) by the power of the risen Christ working in us.

Rev 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead [….Rev 6:10…How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?…] that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Destruction of the sinful kingdom – the second coming of Christ.

The dead bodies of “the two witnesses” in us are “risen with glory, power, incorruption -1Cor 15:42-44 [the down payment of the Spirit of Jesus Christ in the elects now] to judge the rest of the dead, to follow our Head out of the grave.

Jesus Christ is the first to be raised to spiritual life as an example for us, and the rest of His body, (which will be all men at the consummation of all time-Eph 3:6) are “the rest of the dead”, having an inward fulfilment of being the rest of the dead works in us that must die, and an outward meaning or application being our unconverted neighbour in Adam that will die the death in the age to come.

The power coming upon those the Lord first chooses [the second harvest in Adam] is to raise them to the life of Jesus, signified as to “the first resurrection”.

Act 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 

Act 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

 

Act 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, [= thousand years expired, Christ the first fruit risen from the dead and after “little season” of fifty days...] they were all with one accord in one place. 

Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 

Act 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

Judgment is committed to the risen saints “at the fullness of time”, when this power, the Holy Spirit of God “like as of fire” comes upon them to begin that age lasting purpose of the Father [covered at the beginning of this study] – the gathering of each man in Christ.

Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

This is the beginning of the day of the Lord, the day of Christ.

The whole world has invented doctrines to trouble and frighten many about outward end times, “last times” and ungodly endings. This is not so with the true apostles of our Lord.

The true gospel is the bringing in of a better hope for all men, beginning at a few. It is not to dispense ungodly fear in the heart of men in the name of the Lord, but the coming of the Comforter of all.

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him

2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

The appearing of Jesus Christ is to destroy / mortify all the earthly passions and strongholds contrary to God, to gather out of His kingdom all things that offends and do iniquity (Matt 13:41) within us, and for RIGHTEOUSNESS to reign in our present life and the age to come.

Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; […have gone through the whole process, kept the testimony of Christ and become an elect overcomer..] and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

The rest of the dead, our ungodly passions and anti-Christ behaviours, will not live unto God, in the Spirit of holiness and righteousness until “the spirit of life” enters into them, after the signified time of a thousand years under the Law of death.

This is a continual process in our lives to redeem us from the sinful kingdom, until sin/death is no more.

Amo 9:8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, [=the Israel of God – Gal 6:16] saith the Lord.

The down payment of the Spirit of Christ within us, having risen from the dead (the first begotten of the dead) is the one to reign over the nations of the Gentiles (the dead) in us. No other man can we put our trust. Only the Spirit of Christ will reign over all men.

Rom 15:12 And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.

We are not to continue looking at outward times and season as in our former ignorance but hastening to “the time of the dead” within us to be judged.

1Co 5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them [spiritually dead] that are within?

1Co 5:13 But them that are without God judgeth. […in their due time will go through the same time and seasons.] Therefore put away from among [=WITHIN] yourselves that wicked person.

For emphasis again, judgment only starts AFTER the earnest of the Spirit is given, to bring us completely out of the dominion of the Law of sin and death. Until that time… true and righteous judgment is not given to us.

Joh 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

1Co 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, [….before the thousand years expires...] until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

Rev 16:7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

Putting away the wicked, [signified as Satan, the beast and the false prophet in apostle John’s book of revelation] is a living and active event of judgment that is not to be prolonged, but the time is at hand.  It is this second APPEARING of our Lord within our hearts all the apostles are inspired by the Holy Spirit to write of in the Gospel and the epistles.

Our old deceived world we are coming out of has blinded many pointing at linear times, not spiritual times and seasons, prophesying of times far off, prolonged days [Ezk 12:21-28] while the devil continues to deceive the whole world for a signified “short time”, that is to say, our lifetime as a vapour walking after the flesh.

Heb 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: [….this is beginning of the forty two months, our first spiritual birth in the flesh. It is the beginning/ foundation of the thousand year reign of death that has spiritual dominion over us in the sinful kingdom of darkness …] but NOW once in the end of the world [= forty two months/ thousand year fulfilled/expired hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 

Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, [=overcome of the beast, all men are spiritually dead in Adam being first born in the flesh….but after this the judgment:

Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; [=became flesh with all the sins of the whole world in his body to be crucified..] and unto them that look for him shall he APPEAR the second time without sin unto salvation.

Continuing when this 1000 years reign of death are expired, this short time, little season the Devil has come down:

Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: [= to wage war, battle...] and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 

Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.[…till an appointed time of ‘death’ no more. ]

The power used to put away the wicked are signified many different ways throughout Scripture, namely as the Sword, fire, smoke and brimstone by John, all one spiritual instrument of the destruction of the flesh.

At the fullness of time, (Gal 4:4) the spirit of Life, the Spirit of Jesus Christ manifest in the two witnesses, in us to destroy the sins of the flesh bringing in the righteousness of Christ.

This is the beginning of the New Man in our hearts reigning in righteousness with Jesus Christ- a thousand year reign of Christ. 

Isa 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

This is good news as we learn and begin to do righteousness in this present age.

This is the true teaching of our Lord, not the doctrine of devils tormenting those yet under the Law. The end of the reign of the old man is the beginning of the reign of holiness and righteousness of the new man. That is how Scripture becomes fulfilled in those that keep the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Fire coming down from heaven is the second coming of Christ from heaven, His Spirit manifesting in our hearts, for one purpose only:

1Jo 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; [=same one event as Heb 9:26 above..] and in him is no sin.

To take away our sins, the Son of God must be manifest in the place where the man of sin dwells, where the devil gives him his power.

1Jo 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, [..in the sinful kingdom to establish His righteous kingdom...] that he might destroy the works of the devil.

It is only through the lake of fire, [which is the second death] appearing at the end of our age/world, the end of the signified thousand years reign of unrighteousness that the Lord begin to deliver our flesh to this fire to be purged of unrighteousness, for the beast/death to be “given to the burning flame”. [Daniel 7:11]

We begin to die daily to the body of death and the carnal mind, that is, the fulfilment of the lake of fire, which is the second death begins in our lives so we can live according to God in the Spirit.

1Co 15:31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Christ’s second appearing to us is to abolish our carnal mind which is death, bringing us into the righteousness of God, the life of Jesus Christ.

2Co 4:10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 

2 Co 4:11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

2Ti 1:10 But is now [=when a signified thousand years reign of death is fulfilled..] made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

The outcome of the ages is the appearing of the King, to establish His Kingdom in us:

Col 1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

After the elects are slain and gathered in His Rest, they must rest for “a little season” till the rest of the dead that will become their fellow servants and brethren, be killed as they were.  Inwardly, that’s the rest of you and I!

Rev 6:11 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.

This little season begins the process of Rev 20:3 again in those dead that are to come to Life, confirming all men will live each jots and titles of the word of God inwardly and be presented holy and blameless before God our Father.

The last times.

The mystery of iniquity [2Thes 2:7] and mystery of godliness [1Tim 3:16] are both hidden in the times and seasons of the Father.

While our flesh was under the dominion of the king of death, (the carnal mind and body) under the devil in the sinful kingdom, he is given to deceive our whole world with his innumerable false doctrines in the first heaven.

Many false prophets of Satan continue to be sent out to seduce many and bound them in strong delusions regarding times and seasons of Christ.

1Jo 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

1Jo 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets […who are these “many antichrists”..] are gone out into the world.

There are many contradicting doctrines that continue to be taught by these antichrists dealing with “the last time”.  Eschatology – as taught by these false prophets – is an aspect of Babylonian teachings that is there to reserve many “in the blackness of darkness” [Jude 1:13] of “the sinful kingdom”.

Professing to be wise, many hold different viewpoints of the 1000-year reign of Christ upon the earth (termed millennium) from the false doctrine of rapture, to pre-millennial, post-millennial views to an a-millennial view, which is closer to the truth of Christ of a spiritual event.

Christ, as a consuming fire, has appeared the second time in the hearts of His witnesses chosen before of the Father, not to all people (Acts 10:41) to turn them away from all these ungodliness of times and seasons, to take away their sins at the end of their appointed age.

This is the signified “thousand years”….”forty two months”, “three and a half years” of living in the flesh, being under the Law of sin and death.

It is not the doctrine of Jesus Christ the world continue to teach of the outward physical second coming of Christ as He came the first time with sinful flesh. That is “another Jesus” of the men of this world.

We have seen that Christ will come and rule in the hearts of men, and has told and shown us many times that His kingdom of rulership is within. He is not coming to restore a physical kingdom again, but rather to establish His spiritual kingdom in true holiness and righteousness.

Let us flee from all the doctrines of antichrist that distracts our eyes of the Truth, and keep our eyes fully focused inwardly (Rev 4:8) having rulership, dominion over our bodies and minds now. The  “the end of the age”…”the last time”…”the thousand years expired/finished “ for the flesh to be done away with is come upon us now.

1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: [= Gk: types of us as written in Rev 13 and others, being under He dominion of the dragon ruling the beast…] and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world [Gk=end of the age, “the thousand year” reign of death…] are come.

The apostle Peter concludes of this same time of the Lord, and to all that have eyes to see, will comprehend this is the same time and season apostle John signified to us. The outcome of the ages is that we all “live according to God in the spirit”.

1Pe 4:6 For this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, [= at the appearing  of our Lord Jesus Christ in our flesh the second time unto salvation..] but live according to God in the spirit.

1Pe 4:7 But the end of ALL THINGS is at hand: […”the time is at hand”, the spiritual end of ALL (signified) times and seasons of the old man in the sinful kingdom of the world…] be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

The false doctrine of the physical second coming of Christ in an outward kingdom, which includes “the rapture” are all wrought in the hearts of men by the false understanding of the word of God, which remain sealed with seven seals to the inhabiters of the earth and the sea.

The false prophets have their strength to deceive the whole world “by the commandments,” the Scripture of the prophets.  As revealed in the writings of apostle Paul to the Romans, sin of ignorance, being held in strong delusions takes occasion by the commandment. (Rom 7:8)

The whole world still wondering after the beast (Rev 13) is, was and will continue to be deceived by times and seasons. Those that dwell on the earth are still worshipping the dragon in their signified “forty two months”, as another beast – the false prophet – uses this fire, this verse of the word of God to deceive all that hears him.

Act 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 

Act 1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 

Act 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

The false prophets points to those spiritual words of the two witnesses, the angel of the Lord as a confirmation of a physical second coming of Christ.

He causes many to continue to look outward with carnal eyes, gazing into physical heaven and its times, searching the face of the weather and current events to gauge the sign of the time and season Christ will return. This is all faith by sight and we are to burn that type of false doctrines out of our heavens henceforth.

Those who are spiritually minded and are plucking out their carnal eyes [Mar 9:47] continue to gaze to their spiritual heaven, their minds and hearts for the Lord to continue to appear.

Col 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, [=gazing up into heaven] where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Col 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. […the “earth” is being done away with] 

Col 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Col 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, […at the second coming in our hearts and minds, the true heaven...] then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

These are they who keep the prophecy of the sayings of “the little book”, who love His appearing in His kingdom.

2Ti 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

We must however not remain ignorant ourselves of this blindness that has happened to the many called, Babylon and her many Christian denominations at this time is for but a short season.

Rom 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israeluntil the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. [=…Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.] 

Rom 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved:  [= All men will partake of the promises of Christ, be part of the body of Christ once resurrected to Life – Eph 3:6…] as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Rom 11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

This is the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Conclusion

We hope this study will continue to enlighten us that the Lord is, was and will be establishing His kingdom in our hearts and minds to create the New Man in the express image of the Father.  This is His age lasting purpose, and He will gather all in Christ, in the three harvests in the appointed time [1Co 15:22-23] for each man.

1Ti 4:10  For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. 

We must continue to renew our minds, and no longer conform to the physical second coming, outward times and seasons the whole world are seduced to believe.  In due time, the Lord will complete His mighty works, and His kingdom will be established, and shall reign in true righteousness in all [new] men.  This is the teaching of Jesus Christ.

Eph 4:21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 

Eph 4:22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, […the reign of death under the thousand years..] which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 

Eph 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 

Eph 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, [=“Priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”] which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 

Therein is the establishment of the kingdom of God in the saint’s hearts.

Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Luk 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Which kingdom is established in us “quickly.”

Rev 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

 There are many questions and details our carnal minds will want to know about how the Lord will bring about the end of the outward ages.  Many denominations and false prophets have made a living exploiting that carnal demand and giving their hearers what they want to hear.  Lord willing, we will continue to preach the word and stay far away from the fables our flesh so badly wants to hear and profit from.

2Ti 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 

2Ti 4:3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 

2Ti 4:4  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 

Those being saved are walking by faith not by sight.  We are learning to trust in the Lord and wait for Him to reveal what we need to know.  Simply put our focus is to be on Him and what He is working in the kingdom of God within us.

Joh 21:20  Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? 

Joh 21:21  Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? 

Joh 21:22  Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
