WILL THIS SETTLE IT?
People have been writing and commenting about the second coming of our LORD Jesus Christ and I am sure that the Holy Spirit will interpret this small write up to enlighten you. First of all, Christ’s second coming is different from the rapture. Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 &1 Corinthians 15:52-53) will take place seven years before Christ will come the second time. Now if you’ve been one of those that say; ‘Matthew 24: 36. But of that [exact] day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father’ you’re right but what Jesus said is the exact day and hour.
Let us take all our references from Matthew 24 (Amplified Bible) for time and space sake. Here is the question; ‘3. While He was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and said, Tell us, when will this take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end (the completion, the consummation) of the age? They asked to know when Christ will come to set up His kingdom (Revelation chapters 19 & 20 with attn to Rev. 19:11).
Now that we’ve seen these verses, I want to turn your attention to how the Anti-Christ will reign. In one of my write ups, I did mention that the computer will play a very great role. I also made mention that micro chips will be implanted in humans which I see as that mark of the beast called 666 in Revelation 13:16-18. These are being produced and tested with some animals here in the United States.
In UK, a Medical Correspondent called Stephen Adams broke the news about the use of the barcodes on patients in UK’s health section of the UK telegraph. This article was written on December 2nd, 2011 and it is titled; “All patients to be barcoded by 2013.” The link to this article could be found at; http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/8931087/All-patients-to-be-barcoded-by-2013.html
I like to emphasize that this is likely to take effect earlier as one may think. Read (Matthew 24:29-30) and see what Christ Himself says. Whoever that misses rapture should know that as soon as it takes place that Christ’s second coming is seven years away.
I pray that you and I will escape the great tribulation as promised in Revelation 3:10 by our LORD; ‘Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.’
LORD Jesus, I can not keep your command to persevere without your help. I now ask that you help me for I do put my hope and trust in you. Do not let me miss rapture because you promised to keep me from the hour of trial. Thank you LORD for I ask in your precious name.
Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you until we meet again in 2012. 2012 is your year of achievement and victory. Pray for all Ogochukwu’s friends.
