Body of Christ Position and Hope. Bible Study Illustration Chart 1 - Pastor David

Image

(Chart courtesy of the Berean Literature Foundation)
*******
This Bible Study Chart illustrates the position and Hope of the Church of this Dispensation of Grace, the Body of Christ. It shows how God interrupted the prophetic program and "wedged" or "sandwiched" The Dispensation of Grace BETWEEN the pouring out of His Spirit at Pentecost and the pouring out of His Wrath in the Tribulation to come.

During this parenthesis He is forming the Body of Christ out of Jews AND Gentiles, reconciled to Himself by the Cross. Present day believers, Children of God, members of the Body of Christ, have their positions in the Heavenlies IN Christ, and wait for Him to come and receive them to Himself. (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it. Revelation 9:2-11 - Pastor David

Image
.



"And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the h…

Fifth Trumpet, First Woe, and the Abyss is Opened. Revelation 8:13-9:1-3 - Pastor David

"And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

AND the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have NOT the seal of God IN their foreheads."

Wormwood and the Darkening of the Sun and Moon. Revelation 8:10-13 - Pastor David

"And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters...And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!"

Concerning the Eternal Deity of Christ - Pastor David

Image

This short word is aimed at those that CALL themselves "Christian". If you don't know Christ we have something for you here as well.

Now, to those that carry the moniker of Christian, let me say this...ANY assembly, congregation, denomination members...whatever you want to call them...however decent, respectable, moral, kind, gentle, religious and zealous, who DENY the eternal DEITY which means that Christ IS God, and the virgin birth of our LORD Jesus Christ, His perfect, sinless life, His vicarious death, His resurrection and ascension in a body, or give His attributes to another such as the fact that THERE IS ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN, THE MAN CHRIST JESUS, 1 Timothy 2:4-6...those that DENY these things are deceivers and antichrist. 2 John 7; and they make God a liar, because they believe NOT the record that God hath given of His Son. 1 John 5:10.

Fiery Mountain Cast Into the Oceans. Revelation 8:8-9 - Pastor David

And the second of the seven angels which had the seven trumpets sounded...

"and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood.

And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed."

Second Coming of the LORD Jesus Christ - Pastor David

Image
.

The coming of Christ for His Body is quite a different event, and belongs to quite a different Dispensation, than the coming of Christ to the earth with great power and to execute judgment. The end for which the Body of Christ is waiting is not judgment or tribulation, but to be "received up in glory" (1 Timothy 3:16), to be "called on high" (Philippians 3:14). The Body of Christ’s seat of government exists now in heaven, from whence we look for the Savior (Philippians 3:19-21).

That coming is into the AIR, and NOT unto the earth; it is in Grace, and NOT in judgment; and it concerns those who are "IN Christ". Nothing is revealed in the Old Testament or in the Gospels about this coming! Those books know nothing of it. This coming concerns the Mystery, which was kept secret from times eternal, and was "hid in God", until revealed by the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul. The Body of Christ (which is the Mystery) waits for ONE thing, and that …

He who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 2 Thess. 2:6-9 - Pastor David

Image
.

The verses I want to expound upon in this message are found in 2 Thessalonians 2:6-9. "And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming; Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders" 2 Thessalonians 2:6-9

But FIRST, before we get into 2 Thessalonians, let's take a look at the passage from Revelation 12 which sheds great light on what the Holy Spirit is telling us in 2 Thessalonians.

Revelation 12:7, "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels going forth to war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels."

The initiative here will be taken by Michael, and NOT by the Dragon: a very important point in the int…

The Pagan Promised Redeemer. Mystery Babylon Secret Societies, part 4 - Pastor David

Image
.




Secret societies were also looking the sudden appearance of a Promised Redeemer. However, their Promised Redeemer was not the One promised through Biblical prophecy; rather, their Promised Redeemer was a man who had reached perfection upon whom the ultimate Christ Consciousness would descend at the right moment in world history to lead the world into its foreseen "Golden Age". In other words, this counterfeit Christ for whom the Pagans were awaiting is the Anti-Christ. Satan had cleverly dispersed the prophecy of the coming Redeemer in many secret societies of that day. The Wise Men who came to Bethlehem seeking the king which had been born, had been awaiting for the Pagan Redeemer. More specifically, they were knowledgeable of the remarkably precise prophecy in Daniel 9:24-26, and they realized the world was within a man's lifetime of fulfillment. These men were members of the Pagan sect called the Zoroasters. This Persian sect were among the Wise Men of Babylon in D…
