THE BEGINNING OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION
(1 Ki 17:1-7 And Elijah [Heb: The LORD is My God] the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead [Heb: heap of witness, mass of testimony: rolling forever] [a type and shadow of the cross], said unto [King] Ahab [the evil aspect, or evil part, of Isreal], As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years [these “three years and six months” Luke 4:25; James 5:17 & Dan 7:25; Rev 12:6,14] , but according to my word. And the word of the LORD came unto him [Elijah], saying, Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward [go deeper into the wilderness], and hide thyself by the brook [Heb: stream] Cherith [Heb: a cut /// covenant], that is before Jordan [that flows to Jordan = Heb: the descender]. And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook [drink of the water of the Holy Spirit]; and I have commanded the ravens [the unsaved peoples of the world] to feed thee there. So he went and did [works] according unto the word of the LORD [faith]: for he went and dwelt [Heb: abided, married] by the brook Cherith [i.e., he abided by or married (in an intimate sense) the covenant between God and man; i.e., Elijah believed God], that is before [flows into] Jordan. And the ravens brought him bread and flesh [our physical nourishment shall be sustained by the world] in the morning [the 9 am morning temple sacrifice], and bread and flesh in the evening [the 3 pm evening temple sacrifice]; and he drank of the brook [our spiritual nourishment shall be sustained by Father God]. And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up [signifying the arrival of a time to move on, to advance], because there had been no rain [no new Word of God at that location, i.e., at that church] in the land.
(Amo 8:11) Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
hear = Heb: to hear intelligently consider, discern, perceive, understand, witness.
(Rev 12:6) And the woman [the church] fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days [3 ½ years, “three years and six months” Luke 4:25; James 5:17].
(Rev 12:14) And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle [Father God is the “great eagle” (Exo 19:4; Deut 32:11, etc. etc.) His two wings being the OT and NT of the Bible], that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time [one year], and times [two years], and half a time [6 months], from the face of the serpent. [3 ½ years, “three years and six months” Luke 4:25; James 5:17].
(Rev 6:1,2) And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
(Rev 6:1,2) And I saw when the Lamb [of God] opened one of the seals [the 1st seal], and I heard, as it were [i.e., something very loud like] the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see [we have been commanded to open our eyes and physically “see” (understand) this wonder]. And I saw [Gk: understood], and behold a white horse [of “strong delusion” (2 Thes 2:11), of great power intentionally covered with a deceptive misleading color, and thereby displaying to the unperceiving eye the image of truthfulness, purity, spotlessness, wholesomeness, cleanliness and nobleness]: and he that sat on him [he that has the reins of control over the power of the horse of strong delusion] had a bow [but no arrows, thereby holding forth empty threats, drawing red lines in the sand, which are ignored]; and a crown was given unto him [(effectively) King of the World, signifying the most powerful person in the world, hence promoting narcissism – self-love, rather than the “many crowns” (Rev 19:12) of Christ]: and he went forth conquering [present tense], and to conquer [future tense].
(2 Thes 2:8-12) And then shall that Wicked be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed], whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming [by enlightening the darkness, gradually, as He draws closer]: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish [Gk: die]; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion [manifested through a man and his servants], that they [“who believed not the truth”] should believe a lie [a lier, lies]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
(Rev 13:5,6) And there was given unto him [the “beast” (Rev 13:1) that rose up out of the sea of humanity, “a liar… antichrist” (1 John 2:22), “a deceiver… antichrist” (2 John 1:7), “that Wicked” (2 Thes 2:8)] a mouth [manifesting “strong delusion”] speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him [the power of “strong delusion” 2 Thes 2:11, “and the dragon give him his power, and his seat [Gk: throne (as “the god of this world” 2 Cor 4:4), and great authority” Rev 13:2] to continue forty and two months [“three years and six months” (6th biblical reference)]. And he opened his mouth [manifesting “strong delusion”] in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
(Rev 6:3,4) And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse [of war] that was red [the color of blood]: and power was given to him that sat thereon [to him that controlled the power] to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword [i.e., the words of his mouth manifesting “strong delusion” in imitation of our Lord in Rev 19:15 “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword”].
(Rev 6:5,6) And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse [of famine; blackened skin is an indiator of starvation]; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances [scales for measuring weight] in his hand [in his control]. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny [a day’s labor], and three measures of barley for a penny [a much less nutritious grain than wheat, also used to feed livestock]; and see thou hurt not [take not of] the oil and the wine.
(Rev 6:7,8) And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse [of pestilence and death]: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword [war], and with hunger [famine], and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
beast = Gk: a live thing, an animal: beast.
beast = Gk: a dangerous animal: (venomous, wild) beast.
