Prophecy Update 2013-03-03

Notes Additional file Play

-For the benefit of those who weren’t with us last Sunday, we did something a little bit differently than what we usually do for our updates. -Actually, it was not only the prophecy update it was also in our study through the book of Romans that I sensed the Lord was leading me. -More specifically as it relate to Bible Prophecy, the Lord had confirmed to me that it was incumbent upon me to go back to the basics.

 

-So, that’s what we began last week, and that’s what we’ll complete this week, in the sense that we’ll get back to the basic fundamentals. -The main reason for this is that we as a church with all the confusion out there must be more solid in “why” we believe, “what” we believe. -Then, when not if, we’re asked we’re not only able to give to every man an answer of what we believe, but why we believe what we believe.

 

Revelation 1:3 NIV Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.

 

Revelation 1:19 NIV "Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later.

 

-The reason for reading these two verses in Revelation chapter one is that they “reveal” to us two features unique to the Book of Revelation. -The first one is in verse three, which basically tells us that anyone who reads, hears, and takes to heart what’s written in it will be blessed. -This means that Revelation is the only book of all the books in the Bible promising a blessing to those who read, hear, and take it to heart.

 

-The second unique feature to the book of Revelation is that verse nineteen gives to us, as one Bible teacher refers to it, a “divine outline.” -The Apostle John is told to write what he had seen, (past tense), what is now, (present tense), and what takes place later, (future tense). -By giving to us this divine outline, we can divide the book into three parts; that which had already happened, is happening, and will happen.

-Given that this is how we sort of painted the canvass with a broad brush, we’re now better prepared to fill in some of the prophetic blanks. -However, let me first preface it by saying that we are currently on the cusp of Revelation 4:1 where John is caught up “after these things.” -In other words, after the things related to the church presently, we have everything that must happen yet future, or what must be hereafter.

 

Pastor Chuck Smith in his book “The Calvary Chapel Distinctives” writes, “The Rapture can take place at any time. There are no prophecies that have yet to be fulfilled before the Rapture occurs. …In [Revelation] chapter four, verse one, when He's finished with the messages to the churches, He introduces a new section with the Greek word, 'metatauta' (after these things), that He also used in 1:19. We need to ask, "After what things?" After the things of chapters two and three. The things of chapters two and three are the things of the church. So after the things that pertain to the church we read, "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter." (Rev 4:1).

 

-I share that to say this, everything that has yet to happen can’t happen until the rapture happens, which is why this will be our starting point.
