THE KINGDOM OF GOD
THE BOOK OF REVELATION - PART 20
By John S. Torell
8 December 2002
Jesus is now taking the apostle John
back up into heaven, to the very throne room of God.
It is showing the apostle that regardless of the chaos and evil on earth at this
time, there is no chaos in heaven, no crisis, God has all things under total
The significance of 144,000 men, not
having been married on earth, neither having had sex with women is not
explained. It is only stated that this is the way it is. Neither does it tell
us, that men should reject marriage. These men have been saved prior on earth
and washed in the blood of Jesus, and now they have become perfect, sinless as
they reside in heaven with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Some preachers, especially some TV evangelists are stating that these verses
refer to satellites, broadcasting the Gospel to earth today. I do not see that
the text supports this belief system. Just like the Angel of the Lord appeared
to Joseph [Matt.1:18-25]
and later Gabriel to Mary [Luke
1:26-38], so an angel of the Lord is
going to make sure that the Gospel is heard by the people living under the
terrible rule of the Antichrist, and Satan is not able to stop this angel from
getting his message out.
Here is another angel
following, broadcasting that Babylon now is fallen. Dictators do not want news
of any set backs for them to be known by the people, but God is making sure that
the bad news for the Antichrist is made known to all people on the earth.
This is the most important
prophetic writing in the New Testament. This is a prophecy that must be taken
literal and without any doubt. If a person does not heed this warning, but takes
the mark of the Beast, he is doomed to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire. There
are no ifs, buts or questions about this, take the mark of the Beast and you
have sentenced yourself to eternal damnation in the Lake of Fire!
Jesus is now giving strong
encouragement to the believers in Christ. To those living at this time, do not
try to hang on to life any more, if you are arrested, tortured and tried for
bucking the Antichrist system, it is better to suffer and let them kill you.
This is what happened to the first century Christians. The Apostle Paul was one
of them - 2 Timothy 4:1-22
But know this:
IF YOU CANNOT RESIST WATCHING UNGODLY
TV PROGRAMS, OR MOVIES, OR SAY NO TO NICOTINE, ALCOHOL, DRUGS, SEX OUTSIDE
MARRIAGE, ETC, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO BE ABLE TO SAY NO TO THE MARK OF THE
BEAST? Daniel 3:1-30
These verses give an overview
of what is going to happen at the very end of times, when Jesus shall come back
to the earth as King of kings and Lord of lords. Today Jesus is love and
forgiveness; at that day Jesus will be wrath and judgment! Today Jesus is gentle
and longsuffering; at the judgment day Jesus will show no mercy on the men and
women who have consistently rejected him. Revelation
This is going to be the biggest mass
execution in the history of the earth, when billions of men, women and children
will be slain without mercy. The blood will come up to a height of around four
feet and the lake of blood will be 160 miles wide.
This is going to be the greatest
tragedy of the human race, but men will not take heed, despite that the warning
was written some 1,900 years ago. Today it is mostly ignored by the church
leaders and rejected by the unsaved people. Even this is predicted in the
Bible! Revelation 9:20-21
When this event is just about to take
place, the biggest prayer meeting on the earth will take place, but this will be
one prayer meeting that God will reject! Revelation
Do you have an ear with which
Do you have an understanding
of the Word of God?
Cry out to God for his
anointing to come upon you!
