Interpretation Of End Times (MA15)

Brethren, these are troublesome times and Christians should be zealous to understand and discern the word of God more.

Mat 24:3  Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?
     
I believe that our Lord Jesus' answers and teachings are given not only to His disciples alone but especially to those living in the end times so that they will not be misled or confused. All the signs and events given or taught should be in chronological Order and easy to recognize. By setting Mat 24 as the standard basis for the chronological order of end time events we will be able to synchronise all these events up to Rapture.

Most of the prophecies in both the OT and NT are not in chronological order. Interpretations without a standard basis lead to many mistakes resulting to Bible Schools teaching only the various schools of thoughts, such as Pre-trib, Mid-trib, Post-trib, etc. We do not need these teachings of man or earthly wisdom. We need the truth in order to overcome the heresies and distorted doctrines taught by false teachers and false prophets (apostles of the devil).

We are using Mat 24 or Mark 13, the seven Seals, Daniel 11 and 12, which are in chronological order, as our structure for end time events.

4th Seal - civil wars and WW3

Mat 24:6-8  "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

5th Seal - Mat 24:9-28

  1. Building of Temple of God:  Christians persecuted for not accepting the temple of Antichrist.
  2. The Great Tribulation:  Signs and wonders by the Antichrist sitting in the temple of God will deceive many Christians to bow down to him.

6th Seal - Rapture with the Great Heavenly Blackout.  

Mat 24:29-31  “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Rapture will fulfill the period of grace for the Gentiles but will start the salvation of the remnants of the Israelites.

7th Seal - After Rapture, will be the Wrath of Satan and the Wrath of God. Seven years of wraths for all those left behind including the Israelites.

Brethren, these troublesome times are prosperous times for depraved and covetous pastors and teachers. With deceptions they will invent all types of new doctrines for financial gain.

Eze 38:1-2  Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him.
     
Recently I found another claiming that 'Magog' of Eze 38 is not Russia but in Turkey in Psalm 83.

Psalms 83:5-7  For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined with them; they have helped the children of Lot. Selah.

Ishmaelites - Arabs

Edom, Moab, Hagrites, Gebal (mountain), Ammon and Amalek - all are in the land of the Jordon.
Philistia - land of the Philistine
Tyre - Lebanon
Assyria - Iraq
This means that Lebanon, Iraq, Jordon and the Arab states all fought against Israel to help Jordon (children of Lot) get back 'Palestine'. Turkey was not involved here. This war was fulfilled in the war of independence of Israel in 1948.
This war has nothing to do with Eze 38 which involves Turkey (Meshech and Tubal).

Brethren, to the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work. (Titus  1:15)
