The Mystery of the Seven Seals
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”
2 Peter 3:10
The Mystery of the Seven Seals and the Little book explained
John the apostle writes,
“And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.”
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”
We have no need that any man teach us
I quote scripture, because I am developing the theology of Tabernacles. Spirit led theologians need some sort of reference point to begin at so that they can work out these things for the coming reformation. However, I don’t believe it is necessary to back everything up I say with scripture if what I write is, indeed, Spirit led.
On the surface, this statement may seem questionable. Most people want to have two or three scriptures to back up what they say to give it credence. While this seems like a safe and prudent way to ensure correctness, I believe that it is, in fact, natural mined thinking born out of the knowledge of good.
We live by revelation, not by intellect
Jesus did not study scripture all day in order to debate with Pharisees. Christ is the word made flesh. The Son of God lived by revelation just like the first Adam did before the fall. Jesus did not need to study because he was one with His Father who wrote the scriptures. Whatever Jesus said was, in fact, scripture and literally God breathed.
As we mature into the fullness and stature of Christ, the Body of Christ will operate in much the same way. Collectively, we are the word manifest in the flesh. The Body of Christ lives by revelation from the Spirit of Truth. Jesus is God breathed and there will come a time, when we will be scripture and literally God breathed.
The things I write do not come from study. I hardly ever crack open a Bible these days. There is nothing wrong with scrpture study if that is what the Holy Spirit leads you to do. However, I write as the Holy Spirit moves me through inspiration. God simply reveals truths to me, then I write them down. Yet, when I do read scripture, these truths dovetail perfectly. Truly, the Spirit and the word agree.
We enter a new place in God when we begin to live by every word that proceeds from our Father today. People leave the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. No longer do we operate through the reasoning of our natural minds. Spirit led Saints live by the Spirit as Adam did in Eden. Believers become the word manifest in the flesh as Christ revealed his Father to the world. This is the destiny of all Christians. We are the word (logos) of God.
The Seven Seals
For example, let’s examine the 7 seals of the book of Revelation. What I am about to share is revelation about the book of revelation. Only God can give such wisdom.
To begin with, the seven seals are seven judgments which God decreed upon mankind at the time of Adam’s sin. These judgments culminate in the destruction of the entire universe by fire.
The Little Book
The little book which God held in His right hand The book of life. This Little Book contains all the names of those who are predestined to be saved (Revelation 17:8). Our Father wrote this book in Eden at the time He spared Adam and Eve. Instead, God bound up the salvation of the whole human race in the little book written within and on the back side. Our Father did this provisionally until Christ could come and pay the price of Adams sin.
This little book is sealed with the 7 judgments of mankind for their sin. Someone must open the Little Book and read the names else no one is saved. John wept in heaven because the angels found no one worthy to open the little book. Thankfully, the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ prevails through his death on the cross. At that time Jesus takes the little book from the right hand of our heavenly Father. This happens directly after his Resurrection because John describes Jesus as freshly slain.
Jesus begins to open the little book
Christ opens the seven seals and immediately progressively harsher judgments are poured out upon mankind. The rest of the book of revelation is about opening the scroll and the judgments that follow breaking the seven seals.
At the seventh seal, God prepares to announce the end of this creation. The last seal consists of seven trumpets that herald the end of the world and the literal wrap up of the ages. Jesus, at the last trump, finally unseals the Little Book. Jesus descends with a shout, with the voice of the arch angel, and the dead in Christ raise incorruptible. We which are alive and remain are caught to meat Jesus in the clouds (because He is coming in the clouds with 10,000 of his saints).
Jesus must read the names in the little book
Jesus unseals the little book and reads the names written our loud resurrecting the saved. The shout that Jesus descends with is Christ calls forth all those who have died in the faith, from both Old and New Testaments. Jesus foreshadows this even by saying, “Lazarus, come forth!.
God then destroys this heavens and earth and the judgement seat of Christ is set in heaven. God judges according everyone from all ages according to the works that they did in their lives. God casts into everlasting torment, those not found written in the lambs book of life. If Jesus speaks your name from the lambs book of life then you may enter into the paradise of God.
Truth comes by revelation
I write through revelation. I did not “figure this out,” God just drops these truths into my mind through His Spirit. Though I studied at Bible College where many scholars of Greek and Hebrew taught, none of them understood these things of the Spirit.
Not by power, not by might, but by My Spirit saith the Lord of Hosts
I do not posses any ability more than any other man or woman. Only God above can enlighten our minds with His truth so that we may see the breadth and depth of His plan for mankind. This is how all of us can live in God if we will simply listen, hear, and obey on time what His Spirit speaks. Amen
This song is a foretaste of the world to come
