THE TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” LUKE 21.28
WHAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING THAT JESUS HAS FORETOLD US?
Before Jesus died He gave to his disciples a long speech about the things that would happen. He never meant to scare them. He foretold them the things that were still to come in order to prepare them to face the future with braveness and hope.
Surely we can say, “These things have been happening for so long, why should we be worrying now?”
Around 90 years after Jesus spoke those words, there was a disciple that received the Revelation of the things that would come. That disciple is the one that it is mentioned in the Gospel of John as “the one Jesus loved”, and he is the Apostle John.
This revelation that Apostle John received became the Book of Revelation. This is the last book of the Bible
But this Revelation was not sent to the world, it was sent to the church. Jesus’ Church
I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, 11 saying
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”
MATTHEW 5: 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
REVELATION 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
