Christ’s DIVINE PLAN Today is NOT To Save The Nation of Israel
But to Deliver the True Israel of God That He Has ALREADY SAVED
From Satan’s Rule of This World Forever!!!
July 24, 2021
The advancing of the Spiritual Kingdom of Heaven was never prophesied to be such that the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ would one day make the WHOLE WORLD righteous – ON THE CONTRARY!!! – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology prophesies from Genesis to Revelation that “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME as prophesied in Daniel 9:27 would make righteous an “elect remnant” from the world that Christ had chosen to save before the foundation of the World. That Christ Himself would chose who His SEED would be and then would call and draw and give each of us in our own lifetimes that He had chosen to save before the foundation of the World the faith to believe His True Gospel. And that by His saving GRACE we would be “sealed” with the invisible Blood of the Lamb and translated by Christ Himself into His Spiritual Kingdom where we would exist on this Earth in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” waiting for Him to DELIVER us on the LAST DAY!!!
In other words – the success of the Gospel was NEVER defined by Christ as the changing of the WHOLE WORLD – HARDLY!!! -- but that we who were Blessed to be of Christ’s SEED would successfully call a “remnant” in the world through the power and will of Christ “to change.”
That’s WHY the Evangelization of the WHOLE WORLD was never Christ’s DIVINE PLAN – EXCEPT – that it is defined by Christ’s measured choosing “of a remnant” from every Nation of the world. For CLEARLY -- Christ came to save the world – just not everyone in the world!!! And the faith that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST have always had is our BELIEF that Christ would indeed build His Church even in the midst of this desperately wicked world. And that has proven true over the last 2000 years of Church Outreach when the Gates of Hell have NOT prevailed against Christ’s True Eternal Universal Church which is still here on Earth TODAY and is soon to be DELIVERED now that the WHOLE WORLD has been Evangelized and Christ has saved everyone in
His Book of Life.
But 2 important TRUTHS that are hardly ever taught – are 1) that the DELIVERANCE of Christ was prophesied to take place in the 2 Halves of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy with Christ 1st delivering the souls of His “Elect” FROM SATAN – SIN – AND THE 2nd DEATH at the Cross which fulfilled the 1stHalf of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And 2) that the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy -- which is taking place TODAY – has been initiated at this “proper time” for THE FINAL DELIVERING of our saved souls when we will be given new resurrected bodies like Christ’s at the END OF THIS WORLD AFTER SATAN and his VAST Army are DEFEATED. And that on the SAME LAST DAY the RAPTURE and the FINAL DELIVERANCE and
the FINAL JUDGMENT will take place!!!
But even more important than understanding this True Eschatology of Christ which clearly involves the TOTAL fulfillment of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy NOW TODAY – is to know just WHO Christ is Coming Back to DELIVER!!! In other words – who is in His Holy Nation that will be RAPTURED on the LAST DAY???!!! For Christ explicitly prophesied that NOT EVERYONE in the WHOLE WORLD is part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And that’s WHY we read that Christ only prayed that His “Elect” would make it to the END of this World which He REVEALED to Daniel would END on the 1,335th day of this Great Tribulation when we read:
“I pray for them. I do NOT pray for the World (meaning the WHOLE WORLD in general!!!) but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.” (being the “Elect and Chosen Remnant” Chosen by Christ’s GRACE from EVERY NATION and race!!!) (John 17:9) . . . . . . And for those of us who came AFTER Christ’s Ministry He prayed: “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; (from the 1stCentury to this 21st Century!!!) (John 17:20) And that is also WHY Christ told Daniel that if we made it to the END of this Great Tribulation we will be BLESSED when Daniel prophesied: “ Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.” (which is this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION!!!)
It may seem strange to think that Christ would say that we in this Apocalypse Generation are “BLESSED” to go through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION now that Christ has LOOSED Satan to rule the WHOLE WORLD which is now getting EXPONENTIALLY more and more EVIL and immoral and LAWLESS with each passing day. But living through these End-Time prophecies we are seeing THE POWER and TRUTH of the Word of God as we see the prophecies that Daniel and Ezekiel and John were given being FULFILLED right before our eyes!!! And that should inspire TREMENDOUS FAITH in our Apocalypse Generation to make it to the END because Christ WINS along with those of us in His Christian Army who are fighting this Final Spiritual Battle now
along with Christ!!!
But along with the success of The Great Commission of the Church comes the prophecy of this time of GREAT APOSTASY and the “falling away” from the faith when Christ prophesied that the #1 SIGN of His 2nd Coming would be SPIRITUAL DECLENSION. And we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are seeing this “Abomination of Desolation” that is being fulfilled right before our eyes when Man’s ever-so-popular Eschatology today– is falsely teaching that Christ is a UNIVERSALIST and wants to save EVERYONE. And that all one has to do to receive “a get out of Hell FREE pass” today in this now 21st Century -- is to accept by their own FREE WILL that they chose Christ – NOT -- GOD FORBID that Christ chose to save them or that He had any say in their salvation. Never mind the Words of Christ which say: “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit -- fruit that will last.” (John 15:16)
This is exactly what Christ meant when He WARNED that “Many would be DECEIVED” especially after He LOOSES SATAN to fight this Final Spiritual Battle. And aren’t we seeing that TODAY -- when the popular Eschatology of Man teaches that if ANYONE decides of their own FREE WILL to accept Christ as their Savior -- that they will instantly receive a one-way ticket to Paradise assuring them of an Eternity in Heaven???!!! REALLY???!!! Is that what Christ’s True Gospel teaches – that He is obligated to CHOOSE and save whoever decides of their own FREE WILL to choose Him and that He has no say in Salvation AT ALL???!!! I DON’T THINK SO!!!
This now 21st Century Generation has bought the SATANIC DELUSION AND LIE that Salvation and acceptance with God and ETERNAL LIFE to one degree or another is dependent upon MAN’S FREE WILL CHOICE!!! And our “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts have only made this LIE worse by teaching that somewhere or another – by one means or another – at one point or another in our lives that Salvation is conditioned upon SOMETHING DONE by us the sinner. When Christ’s True Gospel teaches that Salvation is conditioned upon the work of Christ on the Cross ALONE since it was FOREORDAINED before the foundation of the World that Christ would shed His Blood to save an “Elect” 1/3 Remnant of this World as He REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9. And that He has been in the process of saving and DELIVERING this 1/3 Remnant since the Days of Noah until TODAY!!!
And in this Commentary I Pray that I can show that Christ has ALREADY not only DELIVERED us saved souls from being DECEIVED by Satan and his False Prophets in this GREAT TRIBULATION when the Final Spiritual Battle of TRUTH AND LIES is raging – but that the 5thand 6th Bowl Judgments of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS have ALREADY been poured out on Satan’s Spiritual Kingdom plunging the 2/3 Remnant of this World that Christ chose NOT TO SAVE into Spiritual Darkness to not even be able to discern that we are in the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE that is causing today’s Great Tribulation.
And sadly for those REFUSING to believe THE TRUTH that there will NOT be a Pre-Trib Rapture – but that EVERYONE ON EARTH is prophesied to go through this GREAT TRIBULATION – they will most likely be the ones “LEFT BEHIND” who Christ prophesied will be “taken by surprise” when any day now He could part the very Heavens to RAPTURE US “ELECT.” I mean – THINK ABOUT IT – isn’t that “The Abomination that leads to THE DESOLATION of many” that Christ prophesied we “Elect” would SEE that would alert us to THE TRUTH that the Great Tribulation has begun???!!!
Fortunately John Saw in His 2nd Vision
That The True Spiritual Israel of God Has ALREADY Been Invisibly Marked by Christ
So That We Will NOT Be Deceived into HELL With Satan and HIS SEED!!!
Revelation Chapter 6 ends with Christ asking this important rhetorical question to especially those of us who belong to Him and are of HIS SEED and born from above. For clearly -- Christ wants us “Elect” to know TODAY where we are on His Prophetic Timeline and how we fit into the DIVINE PLAN and the End-Times when we read about what is called “The Day of the Lord.” And if one understands “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology– then they will KNOW and believe that this FINAL DAY when the Lord Returns is both a Day of DELIVERANCE for those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST -- and a Day of JUDGMENT for those who are of THE SEED OF SATAN!!! And that this LAST DAY will definitely result in the END OF THIS WORLD as John describes in his 2nd vision. For John saw Satan and his SEED thoroughly destroyed along with the Earth by the Fire of God’s Wrath when He pours out the LAST 7th PLAGUE on this Earth SOON. And before that happens Christ asks this rhetorical question of ALL Mankind: “For the Great Day of His Wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Who indeed???!!!)_
Only Christ truly knows the answer to that question because it was HIS CHOICE – NOT MAN’S who would be saved and who would NOT BE SAVED!!! But clearly – Revelation Chapter 7 is an important Chapter for our APOCALYPSE GENERATION – for Christ answers that question for us as this Chapter depicts those who are “sealed” by Him and thus made “secure” and safe from His FINAL JUDGMENT on the LAST DAY which is a JUDGMENT poured out on those whose sins have NOT been forgiven. And the interval between the 6th and 7th“seal” illustrates what must occur before the completion of the 7th seal -- which are the Judgments of God poured out upon the Earth that have been going from partial to soon COMPLETE since Christ had John pen the Book of Revelation for Him. And clearly – we living on Earth today can attest to this TRUTH because every weather disaster and every plague and EVERY SIGN of THE END that Christ gave to us is NOW intensifying as we draw closer to the LAST DAY!!!
And CLEARLY – Christ gave John his 2nd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 7 to illustrate to us that BEFORE the FINAL JUDGMENT on the LAST DAY is poured out – that all of the True SPIRITUAL ISRAEL OF GOD who are in Christ’s Book of Life must be born to have been saved and “sealed” by Him. And INDEED John saw that all of Christ’s SEED were “sealed” in their foreheads BEFORE the FINAL JUDGMENT of the LOOSING of Satan to rule THE WHOLE WORLD took place. And to prove that TRUTH – Christ had John paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of 4 Good Angels in His Service holding back the winds of JUDGMENT when we read:
“And after these things I saw four Angels standing on the four corners of the Earth, holding (back) the four winds of the Earth, that the wind should NOT blow on the Earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.” (Rev. 7:1) . . . . . And in Rev. 7:2-3 we read that the 4 Angels were told by the Angel who was to put the SEAL OF GOD on Christ’s “Elect” this very important TRUTH -- that all of God’s Elect had to be saved and “sealed” BEFORE Satan is LOOSED when we read:
“Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Hurt not the Earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have SEALED the servants of our God in their foreheads.”
CLEARLY – John paints a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Christ having His Good Angels invisibly mark everyone in both Spiritual Kingdoms BEFORE the FINAL JUDGMENT AND DELIVERANCE which is FORESHADOWED by Christ doing the same thing during Ezekiel and Daniel’s day at that time of Judgment recorded in Ezekiel Chapter 9!!! And just like in Ezekiel’s Day the 4 Angels or Messengers of TODAY’S JUDGMENT are NOT able to bring about this FINAL JUDGMENT -- UNTIL Christ’s “Elect” are 1stall “sealed” by Him and His Good Angels. In other words – the GREAT TRIBULATION does NOT occur until the “proper time” in History when everyone has been born on Earth who are in Christ’s Book of Life to be “saved and sealed” by Christ Himself!!!
And through this 2nd vision of John -- Christ is conveying to us TODAY going through this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION – that not only is EVERYONE still on Earth when Satan is LOOSED to fight this Final Spiritual Battle – but that EVERYONE has ALREADY be “sealed” by Christ with either His “seal” of SALVATION which is the Blood of the Lamb – or “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” which shows the ownership of SATAN of those who have NOT been saved by Christ. And this TRUTH REVEALS that Christ could care less about what MARK Man puts on each other – for only the invisible mark that John saw Christ place on the foreheads of all of us counts for who would be saved and who would NOT by Christ. And – THINK ABOUT IT – doesn’t that TRUTH shoot a huge hole in the False Eschatology of Man that teaches that “THE ANTICHRIST” will AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture mark everyone “Left Behind” with his mark of 666???!!! I’m just saying!!!
Ezekiel and Daniel and John All Knew From Christ That This Final Battle
Must Be Fought For Satan to Be DEFEATED!!!
Rest assured that Christ REVEALED this Final Spiritual Battle to Ezekiel in the infamous “Gog Oracle” recorded in Ezekiel 38 and 39 of MAN AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD. For it was REVEALED to Daniel and Ezekiel and John in their visions that Man would be denying – contradicting – distorting and challenging “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology when MANY will be DECIEVED by Satan that there will a Pre-Trib Rapture – while Christ REVEALED that EVERYONE on Earth will be in this Final Spiritual Battle because it takes place between the Kingdom of Satan and the Kingdom of Christ
when we read:
“He (meaning SATAN!!!) shall speak pompous words against the Most High (and) shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and laws. (and of course Satan does this through the False Prophets in League with him!!!) Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and a half a time.” (Daniel 7:25)
And in John’s vision we read the same prophecy: “But leave out the court which is outside the Temple, and do NOT measure it, for it has been given to the (unsaved) Gentiles. And they shall tread the Holy City underfoot for forty-two months (and the 42 months represent the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week which is being fulfilled NOW when Satan has been LOOSED as “THE ANTICHRIST” to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that must occur before the Rapture on the LAST DAY!!!). (Rev. 11:2-3)
But make no mistake -- John saw SATAN leading the Final Spiritual Battle and rebellion in the WORLD against Christ and His Christian Army which means that EVERYONE ON EARTH is in this Final Spiritual Battle!!! That’s WHY Christ prophesied that we “Elect” would be here on Earth to SEE “The Abomination of Desolation” of Satan now RULING THE WHOLE WORLD. And that Satan would be LOOSED to lead this Final Rebellion against Christ and us in His Christian Army which is WHAT is causing a time of Great Tribulation for us who remain faithful to Christ and His Word. CLEARLY – John saw that Satan and his False Prophets would be doing their best to “silence and kill” our witness of THE TRUTH from Christ about these End-Times!!!
And NOW that Christ is no longer restraining the EVIL that Satan is very capable of producing by DECEIVING THE NATIONS – Christ’s DIVINE PLAN in this Final Spiritual Battle is to BRING SATAN’S KINGDOM OF BABYLON DOWN TO RUINS!!! And this is confirmed by Christ REVEALING to John in his 2nd vision that the 4 Angels that have been universally present to restrain this Evil of “the Prince of the power of the air” who is SATAN from DECEIVING THE NATIONS -- have done so UNTIL this “proper time” in History when Christ has NOW TODAY “sealed” His Elect so that our MINDS won’t be controlled by SATAN’S LIES when he has NOW BEEN LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD.
In other words -- Christ is “the restrainer” who has placed His 4 Good Angels that John saw standing on the four corners of the Earth holding back EVIL -- which signifies that they are all over the world standing in the north – south – east -- and west which are the four points of the compass until the “proper time.” And it just can’t be reiterated enough that these four winds that Christ’s Good Angels are holding back from hurting the Earth -- are symbolic of the wild spirit of the air that is produced by “The Prince of the Air” who the Bible tells us is SATAN – NOT ONE PARTICULAR MAN OF THE FUTURE – BUT SATAN!!! In other words – SATAN is the ANTICHRIST SPIRIT that Christ is using as His instrument of the WORLDWIDE JUDGMENT OF EVIL that has been held back until this “proper time” in Human History and was being restrained by Christ until all those of us in Christ’s True Holy Nation which is the Spiritual Israel of God have now been born on Earth to be
“sealed and saved” first.
This “seal” of the Holy Spirit is important in knowing that Christ has our MINDS protected in the GREAT DECEPTION taking place today – for just like in Moses’ Day -- Christ is making a distinction between HIS PEOPLE AND HIS SEED -- and SATAN’S PEOPLE AND HIS SEED in this world. And CLEARLY – John saw that Christ’s SEED were invisibly marked by Christ Himself with “the seal” of SALVATION which is the mind of Christ wherein we are secure by being born from above and “sealed” unto the day of redemption on the LAST DAY when we will step into Eternity at THE RAPTURE. It is not a LITERAL mark in anyone’s forehead -- but a SPIRITUAL SEAL known only of God. And to be sure -- Christ doesn't have to see a LITERAL MARK – for He knows those who are His Elect!!!!
But what’s important to understand – is that John also saw all of Satan’s SEED ALREADY invisibly marked by Christ too. Only they were marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST”!!! We of course can’t see these invisible markings – but Christ knows who belongs to Him and who DOES NOT!!! And that’s WHY we are only His vessels to get His TRUTHS out about His SPIRITUAL KINGDOM THAT HAS COME!!! We are not given the task of SAVING ANYONE – FOR SALVATION BELONGS TO CHRIST. Which is WHY we are just His vessels in executing His DIVINE PLAN of Salvation by proclaiming the GOSPEL TRUTH and allowing Christ to LOOSE OR BIND whoever He chooses to save or NOT to save!!! And according to what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah only a 1/3 Remnant at any time in Human History were ever saved by Christ. But rest assured that Christ will lose NONE of us “Elect” who He chose to save before the foundation of the World – for we are the ones He is Coming Back to DELIVER AND RAPTURE on the LAST DAY!!!
The One True Body of Christ That will Be Raptured Soon
Are Part of the 144,000 That Christ Revealed to John
That He Has Saved Out of This World
The Awesome Book of Revelation is for sure a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL BOOK with Christ at the CENTER of Bible Prophecy and the True Spiritual Israel of God as those who are part of the only Holy Nation that Christ has ever had!!! And it’s important to understand that Christ REVEALS that the number of 144,000 who John saw in his 2nd vision recorded in Revelation 7:1-4 and his 4th vision recorded in Revelation 14:1-5 is “a God ordained number” that Christ used to paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that has been redeemed out of this World’s population. And to fully understand what this “God ordained number” represents -- one needs to believe what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah over 2500 years ago -- that Christ has only chosen to save a REMNANT 1/3 of this World’s population at any time in Human History. And that 1/3 Remnant was chosen to be saved by Christ before the foundation of the World when we read:
“And it shall come to pass in all the land,” says the Lord, “That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one-third shall be left in it: I will bring the one-third through the fire, (and I) will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; and each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ” (Zechariah 13:8-9)
These verses from Zechariah 13:8-9 are perhaps some of the most important verses in the Bible because they help us to understand THE TRUTH of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven – that Christ came to save a 1/3 Remnant of this World’s population – NOT the WHOLE WORLD!!! For “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology explicitly teaches that THE CAUSE OF CHRIST coming to Earth as “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME prophesied in Daniel 9:27 was to restore a REMNANT of the Nation of Israel to God and then to bring the Light of the True Gospel to a REMNANT of the Gentiles in all the Nations of the World by reconciling BOTH Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!!
And that ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST includes both Old and New Testament Saints and Jews and Gentiles from every Nation on Earth in order to fulfill the prophecy that Christ REVEALED to Abraham that he would be “the Father of MANY Nations” and that his descendants would be as numerous as “the stars of Heaven.” And those “stars of Heaven” have been given the “God ordained number” of 144,000 by Christ Himself as He REVEALED to John in his 7visions of these End-Times.
And there’s just no denying that the “God ordained number” of 144,000 has gotten a lot of attention in the ever-so-popular Eschatology of Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” Series and other Prophecy Books that teach a Pre-Trib Rapture based on Dispensational Pre-Millennialism!!! But what these “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts have taught relentlessly is just NOT what Christ’s True Eschatology teaches AT ALL!!! For they teach that the 144,000 spoken of in Revelation Chapter 7 are LITERAL Jews that are to be “sealed” by Christ in the Future AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture of The New Testament Church. That these 144,000 JEWS are somehow the “first fruits” that John saw in his 4th vision recorded in Revelation 14:4 who are the redeemed out of the Nation of Israel which they also teach have been previously prophesied to be “the first fruits” in Zechariah 12:10 and Romans 11:25-27. And Dispensationalists believe and teach that the mission of the 144,000 in this now 21st Century will be to evangelize the Post-Rapture World and proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven during the 7 year Tribulation period which will fulfill Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy for The Nation of Israel and ALL OF THE JEWS who they think are
Christ’s True Chosen People.
In addition to all this – Dispensationalists believe that the GOOD NEWS and the result of the ministry of the “sealed” 144,000 Jews along with the 2 resurrected Witnesses during the FUTURE 7 year Period of Daniel’s 70th Week – will be that MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS -- or “a great multitude that no one can count, from every Nation, tribe, people and language” (which I paraphrased from Revelation 7:9) as John saw in his 2nd vision -- will come to Faith in Christ during the Great Tribulation. In other words – Dispensationalists teach that there will be a GREAT REVIVAL so large that it will surpass any time of evangelizing during the last over 2,000 years now of the Great Commission and Church Outreach up until this time in History. REALLY???!!! What was the purpose of the Great Commission if this IS TRUE???!!! Which is WHY it is NOT TRUE according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – AND HERE’S WHY!!!
CLEARLY -- where Dispensationalist’s Eschatology starts to go SOUTH and depart from what Christ taught about the 144,000 – is their belief that Christ has 2 Bodies of people. For when they erroneously separate THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST into: 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church -- they are DENYING – CONTRADICTING – DISTORTING and CHALLENGING what Christ taught was THE VERY CAUSE of His Coming to Earth as “The Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME prophesied in Daniel 9:27 – which was to reconcile BOTH Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.
And the fact that Dispensationalists insist that ALL of the Nation of Israel will eventually be saved goes AGAINST what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 that only a 1/3 REMNANT of this World’s population at any time in Human History have ever been saved – REALLY!!! CLEARLY -- their idea that the 144,000 are LITERAL JEWS that Christ takes from the LITERAL 12 Tribes of Israel who will evangelize the World and especially the Whole Nation of Israel after the Pre-Trib Rapture -- hasn’t been thought through very well!!! For it goes against what Christ REVEALED to Abraham thousands of years ago -- that Abraham would become “The Father of MANY NATIONS” who Christ prophesied would make up THE HOLY NATION of God. And that this Holy Nation would have so many “Elect and chosen” from every race and Nation that it’s population would end up being as numerous as the stars of Heaven!!! And CLEARLY that prophesy has been fulfilled by the “God ordained number” of the 144,000 redeemed that John saw in his 7 visions.
But Dispensationalists ignore “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology and teach instead that Christ has NOT yet broken down the “Middle Wall” that separates the Jews and Gentiles and reconciled them both together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. That this won’t happen until the Great Revival during the Future 70th Week Prophecy of Daniel when they teach that halfway through the 7 years of Tribulation that here will be a time of tremendous evangelizing of those “Left Behind” after the Rapture by the LITERAL 144,000 Jews – and of course the LITERAL 2 Jewish Witnesses who they claim will be resurrected back to life on International Television. And this Eschatology of Pre-Millennialism that is so extremely popular today of course teaches that Christ will FINALLY inaugurate His Kingdom on Earth for a 1000 years after everyone has been evangelized so that the 2 Bodies of people that He has been working with throughout History will finally become ONE BODY to reign with Him on Earth for a temporary 1000 years. But right NOW TODAY before the Pre-Trib Rapture there are still the 2 separate bodies of: 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church. And all I can say is “REALLY”???!!! They are NOT reading the same Bible that I am!!!
If we are to take the Israel that is spoken of in Revelation 7 as the LITERAL Nation in the Middle East today that John saw in his 2nd vision – or that the 144,000 are speaking of only the LITERAL physical Jews in Jerusalem and around the world today as Dispensationalists teach -- then we must of necessity also take the number “sealed” as being LITERAL too. And that would mean that only 144,000 will be secured or saved and “sealed” as Christ’s “Elect” out of the whole Human Race and in Heaven when this Human Race Ends – THINK ABOUT IT!!! That would be ABSURD!!!
Christ’s Word REVEALS Why The List of Tribes in Revelation Chapter 7 Can’t Be
The LITERAL 12 Tribes of The Nation of Israel
Where Dispensationalists start getting off track is when they teach that the “God ordained” number of 144,000 refers only to a LITERAL number of JEWS. For HONESTLY it’s pretty obvious that even the staunchest advocates of “the Literal at all cost exegesis Crowd” of Dispensationalists -- don’t REALLY believe that Christ only saved 144,000 people on Earth who just happened to be FORTUNATE enough to have been born of JEWISH descent – I DON’T THINK SO!!! But what I can’t wrap my head around – is how so many Dispensationalists still believe that Christ has144,000 JEWS that haven’t even stepped up on the stage of Human History yet who they think Christ has appointed to evangelize the Whole World when the WHOLE WORLD HAS ARLREADY BEEN EVANGELIZED???!!! I mean – doesn’t the Great Commission count for the Evangelization of the World ??!!! Are only 144,000 Male Virgins from the 12 LITERAL tribes of Israel to be “sealed” to evangelize the World after the Pre-Trib Rapture – REALLY???!!! You’re kidding me – how could anyone believe that???!!!
I mean think about it – wouldn’t that make the evangelization of the world in the Great Commission of Church Outreach which Christ prophesied would take place in the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week prophecy which has been going on now for over 2000 years -- a waste of time???!!! For either Christ prophesied that the 144,000 Jewish Evangelists were given the task of evangelizing the World in the Future AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture – or that task was given to His Church – which is it???!!!
This is where being part of “the LITERAL at all cost Exegesis Crowd ”has DECEIVED so many Dispensationalists to believe THE LIE that all of Bible Prophecy should be taken LITERALLY and NOT as SPIRITUAL TRUTHS!!! And it disregards the BIBLICAL FACT that Christ taught in Parables and wrote the Apocalyptic Literature of these End-Times in HIGHLY CRYPTIC LANGUAGE because as He told the 1st Century Disciples – He didn’t want the Pharisees who were of THE SEED OF SATAN to know the SPIRITUAL TRUTHS about the Kingdom of Heaven. And what He said to the Disciples of the 1st Century has NOT changed from what He is saying to us “Elect” today in this 21st Century when we read:
“Because it has been given to you to know the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it has not been given.” (which is WHY the Apocalyptic Literature of the Bible concerning these End-Times is written in HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE!!!) (Matthew 13:11)
And that’s WHY the list of tribes in Revelation Chapter 7 certainly cannot be taken LITERALLY because there are just TOO MANY PECULIARITIES with this list of tribes – REALLY!!! For CLEARLY -- John tells us that the 144,000 are “sealed” from ALL of the tribes of Israel -- but two of the LITERAL Tribes which are Dan and Ephraim are clearly missing???!!! And this should cause one to ask “which Israel” it is that Christ is prophesying about – the LITERAL Nation of Israel in the Middle East – or the True Spiritual Israel of God????!!! And if one is faithful to what Christ teaches – then they would know that He is referring to The True Spiritual Israel of God!!!
But even if one acknowledges this TRUTH -- one can’t ignore the consistent and round number of exactly 12,000 people from each of the 12 tribes– which is another clue and dead give-away that we should not take this number LITERALLY EITHER -- but as a CRYPTIC NUMBER much like the number 1000 in Revelation Chapter 20. I mean – think about it -- if there are LITERALLY only 12,000 saved from each of the 12 tribes of Israel – then Christ didn’t save too many people out of this World. And something else to consider is that the Tribe of Levi is listed here when it is not normally listed in the 12 tribes of Israel. Not to mention that the tribe of Joseph is listed twice. These are just a few of the oddities which would alert any serious student of sound Hermeneutics -- that this number of 144,000 is not to be taken as a LITERAL number -- but as a “God ordained number” that Christ is using to paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of THE ONE TRUE BODY AND HOLY NATION OF CHRIST.
And HONESTLY – the very fact that the 144,000 remain the same leads one to THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel. For this is a “God ordained number” that represents THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST made up of both Jews and Gentiles and Old and New Testament saints that are the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah would be His Chosen people. And that this number would stay the same throughout all Human History and into Eternity!!! In other words – Christ created His HOLY NATION of this 144,000 who were determined before the foundation of the world that He as “the Messiah the Prince” prophesied in Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy would come to Earth to redeem at His 1st Coming by dying on the Cross for our sins. And it just can’t be reiterated enough that the reason the number of 144,000 remains unchangeable – is because it is “a God ordained number” that Christ has used to convey the SPIRITUAL TRUTH that He has NOT lost one of those He chose to save before the foundation of the world. I mean – THINK ABOUT IT – this number was inked into Christ’s Book of Life when He permanently wrote the names of us “Elect” with His shed Blood!!!
The “God Ordained Number” of 144,000 is CRYPTIC – Which is PROVEN
To Be Taken From the Root Numbers of 10 and 12
CLEARLY – the Book of Hebrews tells us that the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” is the Holy City of God which those who are “sealed” by Christ have come unto – NOT the LITERAL City of Jerusalem in the Middle East. In other words -- this SPIRITUAL CITY is referred to as Mount Zion that the New Covenant signifies. It is NOT LITERALLY 12 tribes with exactly 12,000 people in each of the 12 tribes or 144,000 LITERAL PEOPLE -- but an innumerable company of the True Prophets of Christ who have been His messengers and Ambassadors of this World who have represented Him since the beginning of time when we read this magnificent prophecy of Christ’s “Elect” and “Chosen” people in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST from the awesome Book of Hebrews:
“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the City of the living God, the (SPIRITUAL CITY OF) Heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of Angels, to the General assembly and Church of the firstborn who are registered in Heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of the New Covenant (recorded in Daniel 9:27 that Christ has now confirmed with “the many” in His Book of Life!!!), and to the Blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.” (Hebrews 12:22-24)
And we are given this WARNING of these End-Times when we next read that we should be LISTENING to Christ’s Word which DECLARES that Christ is AGAIN going to shake the very Heavens when He comes on the LAST DAY to both DELIVER His “Elect” and JUDGE those who are NOT His “Elect” when we read: “See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on Earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from Heaven, whose voice then shook the Earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the Earth, but also Heaven.” (which is about to happen SOON on the LAST DAY!!!) (Heb. 12:25-26)
CLEARLY – these awesome verses in Hebrew have to be some of the most precious Words of the Bible – for they describe those of us who have been BLESSED BY CHRIST’S AMAZING GRACE to be part of the 144,000 redeemed that John saw in Heaven who will be on Earth today to witness the GLORIOUS 2nd Coming of Christ. And these SONS OF GOD who John saw that were part of the 144,000 are NOW made up of BOTH Jews and Greeks and Blacks and Whites and people of all Nationalities and Color and languages and race who Christ has saved out of all the Nations of the World since the whole world has been totally evangelized today. Which means that the 144,000 represent those who have ALREADY evangelized the World – that they are NOT 144,000 JEWS who will evangelize the World after a Pre-Trib Rapture!!!
And CLEARLY – it is demonstrated how Christ arrived at this CRYPTIC NUMBER -- for the root numbers of 144,000 are quite obviously the numbers 10 and 12. And the number 10 and it’s multiples of 100 -- 1000 etc. are the CRYPTIC NUMBERS that represent “the fullness of whatever is in view” in Bible Prophecy. This is demonstrated in the story of the 10 virgins -- or the 100 sheep with one going astray -- or the 1000 years being as one day – for once again Christ uses the number 10 to signify “the fullness of whatever is in view.” And clearly -- the number 12 is illustrative of the Congregation of the Lord as seen in the Old Testament 12 tribes of Israel -- or the New Testament 12 Apostles. So from these SPIRITUAL TRUTHS we can surmise that 1000 times 12 is 12,000 which Christ is using to convey the fullness of THE SONS OF GOD who have been invisibly “sealed” by Christ Himself even before the foundation of the World in God’s Time to represent the Holy Nation of God. And that Holy Nation is called “the Spiritual Israel of God” and is made up of the ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which is “the God ordained number of 144,000”!!!
CLEARLY – what Christ was trying to convey with this CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the 144,000 and His SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” on Earth where the saved souls of His “Elect” dwell -- is that 12,000 times each of the 12 tribes is 144,000. And this represents the perfect measured “fullness” of the House of God which now includes people from all tribes and races and Nations in the ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who have dwelled on the Earth since the beginning of time. And since Christ’s Kingdom is a SPIRITUAL KINGDOM – that means that we dwell in our saved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” while alive on this Earth -- but after death will dwell in the New Heavens and the New Earth and the New City of Jerusalem FOREVER as Christ was REVEALING to John in his 7 visions of these End-Times!!!
In other words – the “absolute completeness” of the number 10 is 1000. And Christ working with ONE complete symbolic Tribe of people all throughout Human History is therefore represented by the number 12,000 in Revelation 21:16 in describing who makes up the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.” And 12 tribes times 12,000 represents the 144,000 and THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST and the Completed House of Israel. In other words -- 12 such tribes gives us the number of 144,000 which AGAIN is “a God ordained number” of Christ’s perfectly complete True Eternal Universal Church on Earth whose names have been enrolled in Heaven for ALL ETERNITY and inked in Christ’s Book of Life with His shed Blood which is like INDELIBLE INK as we read in Hebrews 12:22-24 above. THINK ABOUT IT -- this is SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE meant to convey SPIRITUAL TRUTHS!!! And if you think like “the LITERAL at all cost Exegesis Crowd” of Dispensationalists today – you just might miss some of the MOST IMPORTANT SPIRITUAL TRUTHS that Christ spoke which were ever recorded – I’m just saying!!!
Christ’s SPIRITUAL TRUTHS That We Can Know For Sure!!!
One thing that we can Truly know for sure about these End-Times -- is that when Christ returns it will NOT be to save ALL the LITERAL Nation of Israel en-masse -- or to establish an Earthly Kingdom for a Future 1000 years as Dispensational Pre-Millennialists teach. It will be to RAPTURE the ALREADY RESTORED KINGDOM OF CHRIST that was established at the Cross and to Judge Satan and his SEED. For the same Kingdom that John said he was our companion in at the beginning of his writing the Book of Revelation for Christ – is the Kingdom which Paul prophesied would be DELIVERED to The Father on the LAST DAY when we read:
“Then cometh THE END, when He shall have delivered up the Kingdom to God, even the Father; when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.” (which CLEARLY describes Satan ruling the WHOLE WORLD TODAY in this time of Great Tribulation!!!) (1stCorinthians 15:24)
So whether Dispensationalists accept it or NOT – NO ONE receives the promise of Salvation by blood line – EXCEPT it be by the Blood of Christ. And anyone claiming they are an Israelite by physical heritage – and are NOT IN CHRIST -- will have a rude awakening when they stand before the throne of Christ on the LAST DAY. For by REJECTING the True Gospel of Christ -- they have committed the ABOMINATION that will only lead to their DESOLATION just as Christ prophesied. As indeed the Lord prophesied that Today’s External Global Harlot Apostate Church of these End-Times would be filled to the rafters with such imposters when John prophesied that FORTUNATELY there would remain some who would have NOT bowed a knee to Satan but would have remained true to Christ and His Word when we read:
“I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are NOT, but are a Synagogue of Satan.” (Revelation 2:9) . . . and we also read: “Indeed I will make those of the Synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are NOT, but LIE -- indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have Loved YOU.” (Revelation 3:9)
Christ has given the Command to the 4 Angels holding back the Evil ANTICHRIST SPIRIT of the wind which is SATAN who is “the Prince of the Spirit of the air” to be LOOSED at this “the proper time” in Human History. And the Worldwide Judgment of evil that has ALREADY begun to take place is NOT going to suddenly be reversed. For these winds that John was shown in his 2nd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 7 have been held back that the FINAL JUDGMENT of CLEANSING THE TEMPLE and JUDGING this World who are of THE SEED OF SATAN -- will not come upon the Earth until certain criteria are met. And part of that criteria is that everyone in Christ’s Book of Life had to be born on Earth to be saved and “sealed” by Him BEFORE the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” could be brought to ruins.
In other words -- John saw that Satan would and has NOW destroyed the World’s Religious System which has TODAY thrown the WHOLE WORLD into chaos and confusion and PANDEMIC DELUSION that we are even in the prophesied GREAT TRIBULATION fighting this Final Spiritual Battle and that Babylon is COMING DOWN. And that when the Religious System that John calls “the Mother of Harlots and Abominations” becomes corrupt and falls and gives its Kingdom to “THE BEAST” who is Satan that John saw ruling the WHOLE WORLD – then AND ONLY THEN the Global Economy and Politics and Philosophies of this World Fall. And when Babylon falls EVERYTHING in the World Falls when we read just what we see happening TODAY -- that all of The Elites have now willfully given their Kingdom of Babylon over to SATAN and are doing his bidding which albeit is again written in HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE -- but should still be understood when John prophesied:
“And the ten horns which you saw on THE BEAST, (who is SATAN and his BEAST SYSTEM of corrupt and oppressive Nations in the United Nations that he now rules over along with the False Prophets in the Harlot External Global Apostate Church!!!) these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their Kingdom to THE BEAST, until the words of God are fulfilled.” (Revelation 17:16-17)
Christ’s DIVINE JUDGMENT is coming now on this sin-cursed World “suddenly” and “swiftly” and Babylon is falling by THE FINGER OF GOD just like it did in Moses’ Day with Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire. And Christ is both willing and very capable to PUNISH Satan and his False Prophets for the EVIL that Satan’s Kingdom has given birth to since the beginning of time which is WHY John calls Satan’s Kingdom “The Mother of Harlots and Abominations.” John sees that the Kings and the Elites and Mighty Men of power and influence of Babylon weep and wail as Babylon Falls by THE FINGER OF GOD – but to those of us who have stood by Christ’s side and fought this Final Spiritual Battle along with Him we are instructed to REJOICE -- for Christ’s Name and HONOR is being vindicated at long last!!!
