The Final Curtain
A Prelude to the End of Days
During my younger years I enjoyed going to Broadway in New York City and loved watching a good play. I would show up early to listen to the orchestra fine tune their instruments before the play begins. Today we are living in a time that reminds me of the same but instead of fine-tuning musical instruments the global elites are fine-tuning their global instruments that will usher in the end of days as spoken in Holy Scripture.
We are currently living in perplexing times, and many are turning to the Word of God for answers. Even non-believers are interested in what the Bible has to say regarding the days we are living in. Many believe we are currently living in the Tribulation Period mentioned in the Book of Revelation and are living in despair.
Jesus said as His disciples listened after their Passover meal, their hearts became troubled. He had told them that He would be leaving them very soon, and that they would not be able to go where He was going (John 13:33). Keep in mind that they had been with Him for over three years, so the thought of being separated from Him was traumatic. Jesus told them not to be troubled because He was going to prepare a place for them in His Father’s house, a house in which there were many rooms. Jesus also promised that He would ultimately come back for them to take them with Him to His Father’s house, and they would never be separated from Him again. Jesus gave a promise of comfort rather than tribulation prior to his return to gather his bride.
The Apostle Paul also refers to this time as a mystery now revealed: “Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51–52).
The doctrine of the rapture was a mystery in the Old Testament and has always been seen in Scripture as God removing His people away from the danger of His judgement. Noah and his family are a prime example just prior to God’s judgement Noah was placed into the Ark that would help him escape God’s Judgement. Lot and his family are also an example of God removing His people prior to His judgement. During the Passover in Egypt God spared all who had the blood of a lamb on their door post, just like God will spare all who are washed by the blood of His Lamb prior to the tribulation. Those who have a relationship with Jesus as Enoch did and one day God took Enoch is the same illustration God uses in Scripture for the rapture of the church. Enoch was born during Shavuot a harvest feast celebrated 50 days after Passover and the church was also was born during the same harvest feast known as Pentecost. This hidden typology is a symbol of what is to come for every believer who have a relationship with Christ.
During the translation of the Hebrew Old Testament Scriptures, the Hellenistic Koiné Greek was used which arose from the dialect of Athens, and gradually expanded and became the common language of all Greeks. In the Greek New Testament, the word Harpazō was used to describe this mysterious event the Apostle Paul describes would take place to every believer in Christ as a quick or sudden snatching away such as Noah and Lot just prior to God’s impending judgment.
In the Greek New Testament, the word Harpazō is found a total of 17 times in 13 different verses, each time harpazō is used this verb refers to a quick or sudden often violently physical “snatching away” or “catching away” of a person, a thing, or an idea. More important is the fact that in 5 of these 17 times harpazō is used in the New Testament harpazō always refers to the literal physical removal of a faithfully righteous human being from one place to another, or from one sphere of existence to another.
Jesus promised his disciples as well as the Body of Christ that He will return one day and take them away from the Judgement that is coming upon the earth that's just over the horizon. The concept of rain during the days of Noah was unfathomable to the minds of those individuals. Noah warned society of the impending global flood for 120 years as they mocked him daily, just like many today who mock at the
promise of Christ return for his church the bride of Christ.
The Apostle Peter while addressing the persecuted Christians living in five regions of Asia Minor, states 2 Peter 3:1-13 "This is my second letter to you, dear friends, and in both of them I have tried to stimulate your wholesome thinking and refresh your memory. 2 I want you to remember what the holy prophets said long ago and what our Lord and Savior commanded through your apostles. 3 Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires. 4 They will say, “What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again? From before the times of our ancestors, everything has remained the same since the world was first created.” 5 They deliberately forget that God made the heavens long ago by the word of his command, and he brought the earth out from the water and surrounded it with water. 6 Then he used the water to destroy the ancient world with a mighty flood. 7 And by the same word, the present heavens and earth have been stored up for fire. They are being kept for the day of judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed. 8 But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. 9 The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment. 11 Since everything around us is going to be destroyed like this, what holy and godly lives you should live, 12 looking forward to the day of God and hurrying it along. On that day, he will set the heavens on fire, and the elements will melt away in the flames. 13 But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness. promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness."
The Bible makes a clear and distinct picture of the entire Body of Christ in Heaven prior to the God's Judgement upon this Christ rejecting world known as the Great Tribulation period that will last 7 years.
The entire Church Age is illustrated by the names of each church and number of Churches mentioned in chapters 2 and 3 in the Book of Revelation, as well as representing seven different periods in the history of the Western Church from the time of Paul until the return of Jesus Christ.
From Ephesus, to Smyrna, and to Pergamum, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea. Each name represents the city, and spiritual condition and time-period of these churches both historically and future prior to the end of the age.
Right after the Church Age a door is opened in Heaven Chapter 3 and a group of saints is seen in Heaven prior to the opening of the seals of God’s Wrath (Tribulation Period). A group of 24 Elders all dressed in white garments wearing golden crowns are seen worshiping God. The Apostle John states: And they sang a new song with these words: “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priests for our God. And they will reign on the earth” Revelation 5:9-10. A song that could only be sang by the redeemed both Old and New Testament Saints.
The Scriptures makes a distinction between the 24 Elders dressed in white and those saints who are seen coming out of the Tribulation. Revelation 7:13-14 “Then one of the twenty-four elders asked me, “Who are these who are clothed in white? Where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you are the one who knows. Then he said to me, “These are the ones who died in the great tribulation.] They have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb and made them white.”
These Saints were not recognized by the Old and New Testament Saints and needed to be clarified to who they were. These are the individuals that were not part of the bride of Christ and was just religious individuals with no relationship with Christ that were left behind Jesus said, “Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left." Matthew 24:40
Jesus also included the sobering reason why in the Gospel of Matthew 25:1-13, “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaid] who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, 4 but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil. 5 When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. 6 “At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet him!’ 7 “All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps. 8 Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’ 9 “But the others replied, ‘We don’t have enough for all of us. Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.’ 10 “But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked. 11 Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’ 12 “But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’ 13 “So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return."
Imminent Return of Christ was preached by the Apostles and Early Church Fathers and was lost as the Churches got more and more popular and Rome established its global Catholic religion that will still be in power when Christ returns.
The number 24 in Scripture is associated with the number of governances, the 24 elders represent the priesthood of the 12 tribes of Israel combined with the 12 apostles, representing how God has bridged the gap between the Old Covenant and the New Saints.
These 24 Elders are wearing white garments in Isaiah 1:18 states: “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be whiter than snow.” The white wedding gown is not a symbol of the bride's self-obtained purity, but it’s an emblem of the work Jesus has done on the cross on Calvary. The parable of the wedding feast Jesus teaches that the Kingdom of God is open to everyone, not only Jews. This parable is told using the familiar setting of a wedding feast, however there are a few surprising events regarding the proper white wedding garments. Just as the king provided wedding garments for his guests, God provides salvation for mankind. Our wedding garment is the righteousness of Christ, and unless we have it, we will miss the wedding feast. When the religions of the world are stripped down to their basic tenets, we either find man working his way toward God, or we find the cross of Christ. The cross is the only way to salvation (John 14:6). This white garment is also a symbol of God’s Amazing Grace and work the Holy Spirit as He continues to work in each of our lives, changing hearts, breathing life, making his people new.
Each of the 24 Elders also wear golden crowns as referred by Timothy, “now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:8
The fact that the 24 Elders sit on thrones indicates that they reign with Christ. Believers are repeatedly said they will rule and reign with Christ. “Then I saw thrones, and the people sitting on them had been given the authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony about Jesus and for proclaiming the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his statue, nor accepted his mark on their forehead or their hands. They all came to life again, and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4. John further states: “And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priests for our God. And they will reign on the earth.” Rev 5:10 This group prior to the opening of God’s judgement is clearly seen as the entire Church Age comprising both of Old and New Testament believers worshiping the Lord.
Today we are watching the world systems formulate and rehearse the great reset which will usher in the global governance that was spoken in the Word of God thousands years ago.
This entire Covid-19 and new Monkeypox pandemic has been carefully planned and orchestrated as well as mapped out for many years to achieve a nefarious agenda, by endless government and public health documentation, scientific papers and video sources coming from a vast variety of sources including the White House, Rockefeller Foundation, Microsoft, W.H.O., G.P.M.B., John Hopkins University, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Unites Nations, ID2020, various central banks, patent information, NASA, journalists, and many others.
Humanity is on the verge of being genetically transformed into nonhumans, a soft-robotic cyborg that is half human and half machine created by a small wealthy global godless group of individuals who desire to erase God's creation and setup a new utopian global government.
As we see the Words of the Bible unfold before our eyes let us grow closer to Jesus who is the author and finisher of our faith. For the bridegroom Jesus will come back unannounced, to get his bride; are you ready for his return? Do you have God's Holy Spirit dwelling inside your heart or are you just going through the motions of Christianity having no relationship with Christ.
Will you be left out of the Noah's Ark, turned into a pillar of salt as Lot's wife or not have the blood of the Lamb of God on your door post to escape the Angel of Death as those in Egypt or hear the scariest words in the entire Bible spoken to you.
One day soon we shall be walking with God and was not for God will take us as He did Enoch. The Holy Spirit which dwells inside every believe will be removed and Antichrist will come into play for the final curtain of human history. "For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way." 2 Thessalonians 2:7
