REVELATION

A Case Study of A Valid Prophecy

~ Part II ~


Revelation is an incredibly mesmerizing book about the present, the future and what is to come. Here we can find HOPE for NOW and in the future! John prolifically writes as he shares his vociferously illuminating intense visions while horrendously banished to the isle of Patmos. At some point in time life as we know it will end. It may be hard to fathom but one day the Lord is going to put an end to evil. Jesus Christ will emerge in the clouds suddenly and victoriously!


“For the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven, with God and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” I Thessalonians 4.



HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?

Revelation is a powerfully complex book of prophecy. But how did it all begin anyway? Step back with me a bit to the very beginning. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the face of the deep, and the Spirit of the God was hovering over the waters. And God said, Let there be Light and there was Light. God saw that the Light was Good and He separated the Light from the darkness...” Genesis 1. (here you will find the rest of The Creation history) From the beginning of time Light was separated from the darkness!




“Then God said, “Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them...” Genesis 2. When God placed Adam in the garden with it was much freedom as well as dominion over the animals! He was told to work and take care of the land as well. Adam also named all the animals. No doubt that Adam was a genius of a man created, shaped and made alive by God himself. God told Adam; “You are free to eat from any tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.” Genesis 2. God could have very well just not let Adam eat from the tree, but He gave Adam a choice. He did not make him a robot. Now we know God created the first man. NO! We did not evolve from apes or a "big bang!" Read on if you need more proof.




God decided it was not good for Adam to be alone so He made Eve. “But for the man there was not a suitable helper found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall in a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord made a woman from the rib He had taken out of man, and He brought her to man” Genesis 2. This is what also verifies the first surgery. Truly God is the Doctor of doctors. He is the greatest physician ever! He made and therefore knows exactly what is necessary... Here as well is the first marriage. By the way, God’s design for marriage has not changed. Marriage is also the 1st institution God Made. One Man and one woman constitutes Holy Matrimony, which is marriage God's Way.

Always keep in mind; God did not make us to be robots. From the very beginning God has given us the ability to choose. GOD IS LOVE and HE loves us. He gives us the freedom to learn how to love and live for Him. Here is a vital significant imperative life lesson. God adamantly told Adam “DO NOT” eat the fruit. Yet, Adam choose to instead listen to Eve and went against what God said. The serpent, (satan) said to Eve “Did God really say, you must not really eat from the fruit in the garden?” Since the fruit was good and pleasing to the eyes and desirable Eve ate the fruit! Then gave some to Adam which he ate it as well… Here enters sin. The rest is history. Sin is anything that separates us from GOD! Time after time all throughout history in every subsequent generation when man/woman often does what God says “DO NOT” it always results in chaos! Instead satan makes one doubt what God really said. Or they simply choose to not listen and “do their own thing!” This is why it is so important to know the Word of God for yourself!!



Daily follow CHRIST JESUS!

Here in Revelation the last book in the Bible, we discover what happens when what we have come to know as “living” will come to an end! Genesis is the beginning where it all started. There is so much in between. HEAVEN IS GOD'S THRONE and earth is GOD'S FOOTSTOOL. I suggest daily spending some time in the Word just getting to know more about life and many of the events that have taken place. There is nothing more important in life than to build an ongoing relationship with the Lord! GOD is the source of every good and perfect gift! HIS WORD; The Scriptures are powerful, “ALIVE” and full of godly spiritual wisdom!
