Revelation Revealed in an Epiphany

I have studied the book of Revelation and taught its truths for 45 years. I have also written and published three books on its timeless truths. Today I will be presenting an amazing overview of the revelation that I received from the hand of God in what I have called an epiphany. I am not certain if I was caught up, had a theophany, or had an epiphany, but I am certain that it was different from anything that I have ever experienced before. For many years I have heard the still small voice of God through the indwelling Spirit, but this last experience was totally different. Typically, the indwelling Spirit will give us the correct words to say or write at a given moment in time. The Holy Spirit can also help us see the depth of Biblical doctrine and have a clearer understanding of Biblical prophecy. We can build our doctrine over time, developing a larger picture of God’s past, present, and future dealings with humanity. However, we don’t often get the big picture all at once, including all of time, which is understandable because we live in the here and now. We live in the present. On the other hand, Christ said that He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning, and the end (Revelation 22:13). He is not locked into time but sees it all, the past, present, and future all at the same time.

The Epiphany was different in that I saw the entire truth instantly from the beginning to the end. You might say, “I got the big picture in an instant.” Another thing that made this encounter so different was the swooshing noise at the end of my experience where I was instantly brought back to my reality. This Epiphany, which I recently had was during my morning prayers and meditation. Instead of just examining the past, the present, or the future, the epiphany was remarkably different. It instantly came in a flash giving me the big picture as seen by God. On a timeless canvas, it unlocked and majestically painted all of Christian history from beginning to end. It instantly awakens the mind and spirit within man to see God’s beautiful plan, which I unknowingly mostly captured in my latest book, “God’s Loving Pursuit” where I take the reader on a journey from the creation of the world to the end just prior to Christ glorious return in glory. So, what truth did I see in my epiphany? In an instant, I saw that the fallen world cannot eradicate evil. No matter how hard humanity tries from passing new laws to enacting new policies to control the masses, they will fail. All humanity can do is push evil back, control it, lock it up, or cause it to hide in the hearts and minds of humanity. Fallen humanity cannot eradicate evil.

Finally, this epiphany has confirmed my long-standing interpretation of the book of Revelation. To properly understand the book of Revelation we must look at the entire book as a series of eschatological events that are currently unfolding throughout the entire timeline from the resurrection of Christ to His return in glory. As each eschatological event unfolds starting with the seven churches that represent all the church ages from the first century until now. We are currently the Church at Laodicea. Other events have also started to unfold throughout Church history at different points on the timeline and will continue to do so until the end. Every eschatological event, contrary to when it actually started will all end at the same time. I have previously written about most all of these unfolding eschatological events, but for the sake of brevity, we will only look at one in relationship to my epiphany. The eschatological event we will look at is the sounding of the fifth trumpet, which is the first woe. It is called a woe because it sorely affects all of fallen humanity (Revelation 8:13-9-2). I have entitled this woe “The Silent Pandemic of Mental Illness,” which I have written profusely about in blog articles and in my latest book. Satan introduced this most destructive lie many years ago in Bagdad, Iraq, in 750 AD. This was the beginning of psychology and humanity’s failed attempt to overcome the old sin nature.

I have written in detail about how psychology, its counseling, and its administering of psychotropic drugs have failed humanity. Simply put they have tried to overcome the old sin nature, which is quite impossible. This has been proved by how mental illness has turned into a worldwide pandemic spawning insanity, suicide, and horrific lawlessness. It’s a wonder that the human race has lived so long. They are always at war with one another allowing their cluttered minds to think the worst of their neighbor. It’s so tragic that they have rejected the love from God that allows them to see others in a different light. It’s so tragic that they have not trusted in God to show them so gently how to remove the scars from their own past and experience the wonder of a new life in Christ. It’s so tragic that they still follow the world in attempting to change people without ever touching their hearts. As lawlessness increases tenfold and deep-seated psychological problems cause people to become alarmingly more aggressive, it will grow horrendously more difficult to maintain your Christian composure. The temptation will be great to hide your Christianity or strike back with impunity. I am brokenhearted that most of Christianity who has the message of the new life in Christ still refuse to share it with others. Christ came with the eternal message that through faith lives can be powerfully changed and evil permanently eradicated.

It will be most difficult when most of humanity loses their ability to function in the real world, from their inability to perform the simplest of tasks to demonstrating a caring attitude. This is when many will begin to escape their reality in the Metaverse. On the other hand, God’s Kingdom can and will completely eradicate all evil in the world by changing hearts. Jesus Christ and His Gospel can and will powerfully do this through faith, changing the hearts and minds of humanity. I believe this was the vision that the early Christians had, which was the driving force behind everything they did. This was the driving force that allowed them to stand firm against their persecutors. The Gospel message will prevail as it briefly did in the first century as outlined in my latest book, “God’s Loving Pursuit.” The point is every person who claims to know this truth must be focused only on this mission and not on what the world is trying to accomplish through laws and mandates. The sad part is, we have forgotten this truth, we have gotten off mission. When a church forgets this mission of saving souls to be transformed into the image of Christ then it is no longer a church but only a social club. It seems like the whole world is trapped on social media following the crowd and not making any real difference in the life of others.

I have written about all the trumpets, the woes, and the bowls of God’s wrath as they are currently falling upon unrepentant humanity. We have briefly looked at the first woe but let’s not forget the second woe, the sounding of the sixth trumpet, which also began in the first century as a heresy and later materialized as the Muslim invasion. This is a threat that will continue until the end when they join forces with Russia and the rest of the Kings of the East to rain down fire and brimstone upon the final Antichrist in the West. Throughout the entire end time, God’s faithful remnant will continue steadfastly as seen in the following passages in the book of Revelation 12:17, 14:12, and 18:4-5. The epiphany was true and very relevant for our day. It encourages God’s children to stand firm throughout the Great Tribulation believing that only His message of salvation will ever eradicate evil in the world. We can tell the world why they are experiencing all of their problems, but they also need to hear the solution. The only thing that can overcome the old sin nature and experience life to its fullest is salvation in Jesus Christ. We must get back on mission and share the simple, yet powerful Gospel, with everyone we know. Yes, we are in the last church age, the church of Laodicea, but we are also the faithful remnant to the end.

Please join me in Prayer

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray, Oh Lord, that you open the eyes of the lukewarm church who has been blinded by the world. They are happy that their pews are occupied, and their coffers are full but don’t realize that most of their members are carnal. Because of their carnal mind, they are unable to keep the law of God and need constant counseling schooled by the methods of psychology. Open their eyes to see that their inability to keep the law of God is because their members have not completely surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Help them to see that when they truly die to self, allowing Christ to make them into a new creation then it gives them both the desire and the ability to obey the law of God. True believers in Christ may need an occasional exhortation, encouragement, admonishment, or a loving rebuke, but we, Oh Lord, know that they don’t need constant, non-ending counseling allowing them to remain as little more than babies in Christ or of a carnal mind, which is an enmity to God. We pray that you awaken the lukewarm church. We are truly the church of Laodicea. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

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

The Truth Will Set You Free

Tremendous forces are coming together in the political, religious, and business realms to develop a new philosophy that can be accepted by all in preparation for the Antichrist to take his seat in mystical Babylon to be worshipped by all. Know the truth and it will set you free. If we don’t embrace the truth alone, then we will be easily overcome by the tremendous forces descending upon the planet. These powerful forces, unrecognized as the powers of darkness, will lead the entire world into bondage. This bondage is accomplished by exchanging the truth for a lie. This lie is so deceptive most people will not even recognize it as a lie. The powers of darkness are manifesting this lie in every area of society. This is not for some future dispensation but has already begun. If we have eyes to see, then we will see this lie already manifested in the political, religious, and business realms. These powerful forces have been directing people from around the entire world for some time now by filling their minds with lies masquerading as a new truth or an amazing philosophy. This is a philosophy so profoundly intriguing that it awakens the old sin nature, which in time pridefully witnesses the reawakening of the importance of self, or self-importance.

This new self-importance in the religious, political, and business realm believes that self now has the ability to do everything without the restraints of religion and the permission of the gods, or the One True God. It believes that it can solve all of the world’s problems and the ailments of mankind. If we had eyes to see, then we would readily admit that mankind is already attempting to do all this without God. We have seen it in psychology causing humanity to trust in mankind’s ability as opposed to trusting in God alone to fix all their emotional and psychological problems. We have also seen it in the pharmaceutical industry that is creating cures for every physical and psychological ailment causing humanity to trust in mankind’s ability as opposed to trusting in God alone who can solve every emotional and psychological problem known to man, along with great wisdom in caring for our own bodies. This new belief or popular philosophy has allowed mankind to ascend to the throne room of his own heart. It has given him the liberty to jettison all the old religions to build a brave new world without God. This new philosophy has already spread quickly to nearly every person on the planet who has not surrendered completely to the Lordship of Christ.

The only thing that will set humanity free from their bondage is to return to the truth of classic Christianity that says, “We can’t, but He can; and if we don’t, then He will; but if we will (do it in our own strength and power), then He won’t (do His mighty works through us).” Simply put, we must trust God to lead and do everything through us. This is how we were originally created. We were never created to go it alone. Yet, none of this is possible until we get off the throne, the throne room of our own hearts. Now, for most, even for Christians, this is a pretty scary thing, because when we get off the throne, then we must follow God’s way completely. We will never be able to fix the world’s problems, but we can allow God to fix ours. This will be tough because you don’t have anyone to rely on but God. Even in tragic circumstances or persecution, God will not leave His faithful children alone to face life’s problems. True faithfulness is following all of God’s principles, precepts, commandments, and the direction of the Holy Spirit during your most tragic circumstance. When you sincerely allow God to get back on the throne of your heart, you will be a peculiar people, a holy, and faithful remnant (I Peter 2:9).

To allow Christ on the throne in our hearts we must die to self. The Bible says, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but 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” (Galatians 2:20). I can tell you that most Christians have no idea what it means to die to self. This will be a complete reversal of everything we have ever been taught in the world. From the cradle, we have been taught to take the initiative and do it ourselves. We were taught at an early age that we have the power to make a change in our lives, to be whatever we envision ourselves to be. We were taught that we have the power to solve all of our own problems by studying hard, doing research, and making the right choices. You can see that dying to self and trusting in Christ to lead you in every decision is completely opposite of everything we have been taught.

Most Christians will allow Christ to rule only if it’s an emergency, while they sit on the throne of their heart the rest of the time making their own decisions without Christ. On the other hand, to be truly known by Christ (Matthew 7:21-23) is to allow Him to reign in our lives every moment of every day. Believe me, when you do this you will see some remarkable changes in your life. In our day humanity is facing some of its greatest challenges from Global Warming to new and deadlier viruses descending upon all of humanity. Mankind is not turning to God to fix these problems or to understand what caused them in the first place. No, with mankind on the throne in his own heart, he is attempting to fix all the problems without God. Although mankind is unable to really fix any of his problems, the powers of darkness will convince all of humanity that he is the only one capable of doing it. The Antichrist will put the onus back on mankind for not having enough faith in himself. He will say, “Get back on the throne!” “Have faith in yourself, you can do it!” This is the current thinking in today’s world, this is the new philosophy, introduced by the powers of darkness. This is the lie from the pit of hell to lead us into bondage and a slave to the Antichrist. As they listen to the lie of the new world philosophy, then they will be led into an even deeper bondage to the coming Antichrist as he takes his seat of power in mystical Babylon. The Antichrist will give a face to this new world philosophy. He will be consumed with his own pride believing that he has all the solutions to fix the problems facing the world. He will appear to be one of the most intelligent men in the world as he enlists other learned men from the political, religious, and business realms to lead the entire world to sit upon the throne in the throne room of their own hearts.

On the other hand, God in His infinite wisdom has already given us the solution to all the problems facing a world headed for complete destruction caused by the increasing number of forest fires, heat waves, earthquakes, and massive flooding in our cities. He has already given us the solution to the global blight on humanity caused by the increasingly fatal viruses and diseases. When we allow Christ to take His rightful place upon the throne of our hearts, then we will listen to Him alone. As we listen to Christ, we understand that there is only one solution to their problems. They must repent of the many sins that have caused all their problems in the first place. Yes, sin has caused all of their problems! As God’s children, we must yell that from the rooftop of every building. No, electric cars and windmills will not solve their problems. No, new and improved vaccines will not solve their problems. The only thing that will help is allowing Christ to take His rightful place upon the throne in our hearts. When we do, then we will come out from among them and be separate. We will become a living example of Christ living in us to the glory of God. We will become a living example to the power of love and forgiveness. We will become a living example of turning the other cheek and going the extra mile by utilizing the principles of non-retaliation (Matthew 5:38-42).  We will be a living example of the health, emotional, and psychological wellbeing of allowing Christ to reign in our lives. We will be a peculiar people to the glory of God. The truth shall make you free.

Jesus said, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32)

Why Do Bad Things Happen?

The question most asked, even by professed followers of Christ is, “Why do bad things happen to me?” That’s a great question. It is a question that’s been asked since the beginning of time. It is a question that has haunted humanity since the dawn of history. If you seriously want to know the answer, keep reading. This is a question that must be brought before the Lord in deep prayer and meditation, taking time to listen to His every word. We live in a day where the age-old understanding of fate has resurfaced, especially among the unbelievers. Unbelievers now espouse their senseless rhetoric, “That things just happen” solidifying their belief in fate. This is a belief that everything that happens is beyond our control, contrary to what we do or don’t do; if we are bad or good it makes no difference to the outcome. Although this kind of thinking may help them to accept the onslaught of bad things happening to them, it doesn’t answer the question. It only delays the inevitable, which often leads to stress, psychological trauma, mental illnesses, or something far worse, eternal separation from God. Continue reading Why Do Bad Things Happen?
