Keys to Understanding the Book of Revelation-Surveying the Text: Lesson 8: Heaven on Earth ( Chptrs. 21-22)
Ending Remarks continued:
As I said in the opening of my ending remarks, I do not consider myself an expert on the end-time or book of Revelation, however it has become my passion and part of my calling. I have spent almost 5 years studying Revelation and the Lord has given me an insight as to what we are about to see happen in the world and Kingdom. The book of Revelation is a Love letter to His Bride and is given to His servant’s so that they can know what is about to take place. In the content of this revelation we have seen part of what is necessary to be a part of the appearing of Christ in a people. It is my desire for people to awaken to their calling. This writing has been the Sounding the Alarm so that the Elect of God will take their position and prepare. God has a wonderful plan that will bring the entire world into knowledge of who He is and what He desires of His people. Remember every knee will bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. The kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our Lord. Phrases like you have been hearing from the prophets, i. e. the shaking of all things and all of creation awaiting the manifestation of the Sons of God, let us know that we are about to face the most dynamic time of human history.
To really understand Revelation then we must come to fully understand the Mystery of Godliness; Christ in you the hope of Glory. Until we can break free from the traditional system, religion, then we can never be a human being rather than doing. That is what the Father really wants. He wants us transformed and thus has given us His Son to dwell in us and change our very nature. So in conclusion, the Revelation of Jesus Christ has now been opened to this generation.
In this day God is preparing the Body of Christ and revealing Himself in His Body–which is not another Body, but the knowledge of the already joining of His people unto the Lord Jesus, Who is the glorified Head. It is much of the same nature as it was when God “prepared” a Body for the Man Christ Jesus.
The Spirit of God living and abiding in total fullness in this corporate MAN that is arising in the midst of the Church will show forth a God of total righteousness, and love, and justice, and truth in the earth. Christ will receive unto Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or blemish… or any such thing, the habitation for Himself for which has already been there. Now comes the revealing of Himself in His Body/His Habitation.
“And I John saw the holy City, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband… And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the Temple of it” (Rev. 21:2, 22).
Look ahead with anticipation. In the midst humanity’s darkness, light is prevailing. The beginning of the gospel may find man fallen far from God, but in the end we see a City coming down out of heaven as a bride adorned for her husband, lighting up the sky with His glory (Revelation 21:2, 10)
All creation is yearning for the City’s appearing, and I hope to see you there.
Until that day, the Spirit and bride say “Come!”
May the love of Christ shine richly in our lives as we realize HE IS OUR LIFE.
THE END OR THE BEGINNING.
We will continue with the weekly Bible study next week. It is fitting that we will be studying the book of Genesis, the beginning.
The blessings of our Lord are in you and upon you and all that is yours by blood, adoption and/or assignment.
