The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks. God is Thought, God is Love, God is the eternal Spirit from which all things were created. You are a part of His Spirit (Eccl 12:7); you are either an eternal Spirit, or an eternal spirit.



(Mat 12:25)  And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom [country] divided against itself [e.g., Democrats vs. Republicans] is brought to desolation [Gk: laid waste: come to naught]; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand [Gk: continue]:

1.    (2 Tim 3:1)  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2.    perilous = Dictionary synonyms: dangerous, unsafe, hazardous, risky, death-defying, terrifying.

3.    (1 Tim 2:1-5)  I exhort [Gk: implore by prayer] therefore, that, first of all, supplications [Gk: petitions], prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men [even though we may not like them]; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator [Gk: a go between, a reconciler, (intercessor)] between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom [Gk: a redemption price] for all, to be testified [Gk: witnessed] in due time.



(Luke 21:20-23)  And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed [Gk: surrounded] with armies, then know that the desolation [Gk: laid waste: come to naught thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries [foreign lands] enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance [Gk: vindication, retribution: punishment], that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe [Gk: grief] unto them that are with child [pregnant], and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress [syn: suffering, pain, sorrow, anguish, grief, misery] [upon all saved people] in the land, and wrath [Gk: punishment: anger, indignation, vengeance] upon this [all unsaved] people.

1.    Commentary: may we note that as a significant type and shadow, the Israelites dwelling in the land of Goshen also suffered through the first three plagues upon Egypt, the plagues of water to blood, the frogs, and the lice, but the Israelites did not suffer (Exo 8:22,23) the remaining seven more severe increasingly catastrophic plagues. Conclusion: we are going to remain here yet for a while (under “great distress”), but immediately prior to when the really bad stuff starts happening (God’s “wrath”), we shall be gone, i.e., taken up (1 Thes 4:17; Rev 20:5,6).

2.    (Rom 12:19)  Dearly beloved, avenge [Gk: retaliate] not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath [“but leave the way open for [God’s] wrath” Amplif.]: for it is written, Vengeance [Gk: vindication, retribution: punishment] is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

3.    (1 Thes 5:9)  For God hath not appointed us to wrath [Gk: punishment: anger, indignation, vengeance], but to obtain salvation by [Gk: through] our Lord Jesus Christ,


(John 12:48)  He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words [Gk: rhema; (revelations)] [fruit], hath one that judgeth him: the word [logos; (seed)] that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

1.    (Gal 3:22)  But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
