One Thousand Years: Genesage "Lakeside" (Chp 10:4)

One Thousand Years

Genesage

"Lakeside"

(Chapter 10:4)

The grassy knoll was just enough of a rise to provide a perch to view the
lake.

It was her favorite. Often she would lay back and look at the sky and
pretend there was a sun up there. So far just clouds, still she could
imagine one day there would be a sunrise. Oddly she hadn't really noticed
missing the sun. She had been a big city girl anyways and didn't really get
out in the sun. Still you would think she would have missed it in sixty-nine
years, but her mind had been elsewhere. Now she wondered laying there alone what would it be like when the sun came
back.

It was not much of a lake thought Delilah but Eben loved to call it that.
The ripples playing on the surface in the distance always danced for her as
an invisible ballet across the waters sections. First in one area, then
another, she didn't care or know what made the waters move, she merely
enjoyed it as one of her favorite pastimes. Wandering, dancing, twirling it was childish of course, but the mind that
liked to wander could imagine a time in childhood when holding a loved one's
hands they would waltz and twirl the day away. She could see herself that free, almost.

A sudden plop startled her.

She realized it was a cast stone. The tossed object barely catching her
attention as it flew over her. She seeing it out of the corner of her eye.
It had sailed over her from behind which caused her to jump with startled
emotions. She didn't like surprises.

Being lost in her daydream she was unprepared for the sudden noise. The plop
had sounded hollow. It echoed like dropping into deep water. Who? What?
She heard laughter. Ezravivor, the older of the two brothers was laughing as
he came up upon her sitting alone. He had walked up from behind her suspecting where she would be when he saw
her leave the group earlier. He knew the others didn't notice her leaving.
Yet she often did. She would "fade away" from the people often retreating to
this place to be alone. Each time she left he followed.

It wasn't always right after she left; after all, he did have some
self-respect. He didn't want to appear as though he were following. Yet,
cause and effect, he was following her.

No one ever noticed when she left, but everyone always saw him leave.

They knew where he was going. No one ever said a word to either of them but
everyone knew. They would notice him leaving then realize Delilah was
already gone. It take a genius to figure out where, but it would take a real naiveté not
to figure out after thirty years SOMETHING was going on.

Delilah and Ezravivor were an item.

The Revelation Series

Commentary from 12 scholars

OTY: The Revelation (11)B - Jack Kelley

Revelation 10-11:14

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

 

Revelation 11:1-14

The Two Witnesses

 I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, "Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, and count the worshipers there. (Rev. 11:1) Here's evidence along with Daniel 9:27 and 2 Thes. 2:4 that a Temple will exist before the beginning of the Great Tribulation.  Having seen the miraculous way in which God delivered them from certain defeat in the battle of Ezekiel 38-39, Jews from all over the world will respond to His offer of reconciliation and make Aliyah (return to Israel).  Their Old Covenant relationship restored, they'll demand a Temple for worship, and early in the 70th Week of Daniel it will be built. Nearly 2000 years of diaspora (scattering) will finally end.

 

 But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. (Rev. 11:2) This verse has been used to support the idea that the Temple will be built next door to the Dome of the Rock.  Later, I'll offer an alternative to this view.  But first let's meet the Two Witnesses.

 

And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. These men have power to shut up the sky so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want. (Rev. 11:3-6) The 3½ year ministry of the two witnesses is not congruent with either half of Daniel's 70th week but overlaps them, beginning after the 70th week does and ending sometime before the 2nd Coming.  Before discussing their identity we should note that they provide the ultimate fulfillment of Zechariah 4:11-14, the "Sons of Oil" prophecy partially fulfilled by Zerubbabel and Joshua in the time of the 2nd Temple's construction.

Who Are Those Guys?

There are three primary candidates for their identity; Moses, Elijah and Enoch.  Elijah and Enoch because they're the only two in the Old Testament who didn't die, but were taken into heaven alive. And Moses and Elijah because the powers of these two are identical to those exercised by Moses in the Plagues of Egypt and Elijah in his contention against idolatry in Israel.  Remember, it climaxed in his spectacular defeat of the prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel with fire from heaven and the end of a 3½-year drought. (You have to read James 5:17 for the duration of the drought. It's not given in 1 Kings 18.)  Also Moses and Elijah were on the Mt. Of Transfiguration with Jesus and the disciples (Matt.17:1-13) and according to early church tradition were the two men in white who appeared to the disciples following the Lord's ascension. (Acts 1:10-11)  And finally Moses and Elijah are two of the most highly revered figures in all of Israel's past, more able than anyone else God could send to convey His message.  Moses was the Law Giver and Elijah was the greatest of Israel's Prophets.  Their two names are all but synonymous with the Jewish name for their scriptures, the Law and the Prophets.

 

I believe Enoch's disappearance before the Great Flood was a special event designed to pre-figure the disappearance of the Church before the Great Tribulation.  As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the Coming of the Son of Man.(Matt 24:37) In the days of Noah the world perished in the Flood.  They represent those who will perish in the Great Tribulation.  Noah and his family were preserved through the Flood and represent Israel, preserved through the Great Tribulation.  Enoch was taken alive into Heaven before the Flood, representing the Church who will be taken alive into heaven before the Great Tribulation.  For all these reasons, I hold the Moses and Elijah view.      

Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.

 But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.

 At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming soon. (Rev. 11:7-14)  

There's no question that their bodies were left where they fell in the streets of Jerusalem.  It's the city where the Lord was crucified.  And through the technology of satellite communications their dead bodies will be visible all over the world. 

In Middle Eastern cultures the greatest insult one can convey is to deny burial to one's enemy. Their deaths prompt the only expression of joy on earth in the entire book.  But after 3½ days, symbolic of the length of the Great Tribulation, the two witnesses will hear the same command that John heard in Rev. 4:1, "Come up here!" and will ascend into Heaven in full view of the whole world.  Just as the Lord's command in chapter 4 was a model of the Rapture of the Church, the command here is a model of the resurrection of the Tribulation martyrs.

In the Psalms we read, O God, the nations have invaded your inheritance; they have defiled your holy temple, they have reduced Jerusalem to rubble. They have given the dead bodies of your servants as food to the birds of the air, the flesh of your saints to the beasts of the earth. They have poured out blood like water all around Jerusalem, and there is no one to bury the dead. (Psalm 79:1-3) It's a clear prophecy of things to come, and it begins in Revelation 11.

By saying that the earthquake survivors gave glory to God, John didn't mean that they worshipped Him or came to faith in Him.  It means that they correctly attributed these miraculous events to Him, like the Egyptian priests did in explaining the cause of the plagues in Exodus 8:19.

Where's The Temple?

This part of Revelation 11 hints at some troubling inconsistencies with our understanding of the coming Temple's location.  It's given as the Holy City in verse 2, but in verse 8 Jerusalem is called the Great City, figuratively Sodom and Egypt.  Are they the same? The Holy City will be trampled on by the Gentiles for 42 months, but Jesus said that Jerusalem would be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles were fulfilled, over 2000 years. 

For generations a controversy has existed among Jews and Christians alike as to the exact location of Solomon's and Herod's Temples.  The Jewish Sanhedrin, recently reformed after 1600 years, is tackling the question as one of it's first priorities.  Call me na├»ve but I think we've all been asking the wrong question.  Sure it's great to know the exact placement of these historical monuments to God, but the real question is, "Where will the next Temple be?"

Many Christians think the coming 3rd Temple will be desecrated by the Abomination of Desolation during the Great Tribulation and then destroyed. For that reason they call it the Tribulation Temple.  Then another Temple, number four, will be built at the beginning of the Millennium.  But the only model we have for all of this is the desecration of the 2nd Temple leading up to the Macabbean Revolt.  And it's something that Jesus took pains to point us toward in the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24:15).

In the model, Syrian ruler Antiochus Epiphanes stormed the Temple and converted it into a pagan worship center in 167 BC.  He slaughtered a pig on the altar and erected a statue of Zeus (Jupiter) in the holy place with his own face on it, thereby proclaiming himself to be God (Epiphanes means god made manifest) and required worship on pain of death. In 1 Macabbees, this was called the Abomination of Desolation, the only event so named in history. It triggered the Macabbean revolt, a 3 ½ year battle to oust Antiochus from the Promised Land. The Jews thought it fulfilled Daniel 9:27, but almost 200 years later Jesus told Israel to look for it in the future as the sign that the Great Tribulation has begun, thereby identifying it as a model for the End Times Abomination of Desolation. And it's true that the Macabbean Revolt contains many remarkable similarities to the Great Tribulation. 

Here's the point.  The Jews didn't destroy the Temple after the Abomination of Desolation in 167 BC. When they recaptured it, they destroyed the statue and replaced the Altar. Then they subjected the Temple to the eight-day purification ceremony required by Law and began using it again. The purification is remembered to this day in the Feast of Chanukkah.  If the model is complete, then the Temple built during Daniel's 70th week won't be destroyed either, but will become the Millennial Temple described in great detail by Ezekiel in chapters 40-48.  (The Jews call Ezekiel's Temple the 3rd Temple.) And that means it won't be in Jerusalem.  Next time I'll show you where it will be.

The Revelation Series

Commentary from 12 scholars

OTY: The Revelation (10) - Jack Kelley

Revelation 10-11:14

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

 

We take a break from the Trumpet Judgments now to give the world its final warnings before the Great Tribulation begins.  These are the Seven Thunders and the Two Witnesses that God has sent to Israel to warn His people to "get right with God" while there's still time.  Remember, at the end of the Battle of Ezekiel 38-39, God will bring every living Jew to Israel, leaving none behind. (Ezek. 39:28) Even though many will be martyred, especially among those who've found the Messiah, there'll still be a huge population of Jews in Israel with a fully functioning Temple.  In the sequence of events, the Abomination of Desolation hasn't happened yet so they haven't had to flee into the mountains of Jordan.  The 144,000 and the Tribulation Saints will help complete this world wide evangelistic "last call."

The Angel and the Little Scroll

Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars. He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke. And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, "Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down." (Rev 10:1-4) Lots of things in this passage hint at the possible identity of this angel.  He's clothed in a cloud and his legs are like pillars of fire, which reminds us of the Angel of the Lord who protected the Israelites in the wilderness. The Rainbow over his head is symbolic of God's mercy. His voice is like the roar of a lion. The voice of the Lord is compared to thunder seven times in Psalm 29. Could it be the Lord?  His identity is not specified but whether he is or not doesn't really impact our understanding of the passage.    

The Seven Thunders most probably contain an undisclosed warning by God between the 6th and 7th Trumpets. John was about to detail this for us when the Lord told him not to.

In Psalm 29 the voice of the Lord is mentioned seven times and is compared to the sound of thunder.  The name of the Lord is given four times in the two-verse introduction of the Psalm and four times more in the two-verse conclusion (four is the number of Creation). It appears ten times in verses 3 through 9 (ten is a number that denotes the completeness of Divine Order) and the phrase "Voice of the Lord" is repeated seven times (seven is the number of perfection). Psalm 29 is often called "the Seven Thunders of God" as well.

With the coming Seventh Trumpet, we'll be told that the Kingdoms of the world have become the Kingdom of our Lord (Rev. 11:15) and for the first time the traditional translation of God's name as "the One Who is and Who was and Who is to come" is changed to just "the One Who is and Who was" (Rev. 11:17) also indicating that His reign has begun. (Some translations put the "Is to Come" part back in but the Greek text doesn't include it.)

This means that in the Heavenly view, the Great Tribulation will have begun. After Satan's losing battle in Heaven and confinement to Earth in Rev. 12, the anti-Christ makes his official appearance on Earth as Satan's host at the beginning of Rev. 13. (He first came on the scene in Rev. 6 as a mere man.) This signals the start of the Great Tribulation on Earth. The seven Bowl judgments begin soon thereafter.

Put all this together and you can make a circumstantial case that the Seven Thunders will announce that the Great Tribulation with its Bowl Judgments will complete the Divine Order, perfectly satisfying God's righteous requirement that the people of Earth be judged for their sins, and leaving Earth in a condition of readiness to receive her King.

Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven. And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, "There will be no more delay!  But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets."

Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: "Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land."

So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, "Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey." I took the little scroll from the angel's hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour. Then I was told, "You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings." (Rev. 10:5-11)

The Lord told John to take the scroll and eat it. At first taste, it seemed sweet as honey, but after he swallowed it, his stomach turned sour. This is to signify that as followers of the Lord, we anticipate the fulfillment of End Times prophecy with much excitement and joy.  We join with the souls of the righteous slain in crying, "How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?" (Rev. 6:10)  We know His judgment is righteous, and that He's been long-suffering, patient almost to a fault.  But because our enemy is so intent upon succeeding in his rebellion against God, the horror and carnage of the warfare necessary to accomplish his defeat is enough to make you sick.

Prophecy Digested

Prove All Things knowing that all Prophecy is about Jesus and God revealing His Son…To us..for our…Salvation. We post material that is questionable, objectionable, and in the opinion of the Editor of the Prophetic Perspective, valid to use as God chooses to. Sometimes that is highly suspect as material setting “dates” of the Rapture is, but often these posts, may have pieces that are correct to futher study.

OTY: The Revelation (7)D -Revelation Commentary

The Revelation Series

Commentary from 12 scholars

OTY: The Revelation (7)D -Revelation Commentary

Previous Section: Chapter Three - The Seven Churches, Part 2

CHAPTER FOUR - HEAVEN

Revelation 4:9

And (1) when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks (2) to Him who sits on the throne, to Him who lives forever and ever,

1. When the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks = the wordwhen indicates that this is not a repeated action. This action will happen once. As John sees the vision, it has not occurred yet. Revelation 5:13-14 records the fulfillment of this event. It occurs in the context of the Lamb breaking the seals, which temporally relates to the Seventieth Week of Daniel. This event will mark the beginning of the final sequence of events associated with Revelation 6-19.

2. To = this preposition has two objects. Both refer to God the Father. The repeated reference to God’s eternality serves to remind the reader that God’s judgments are just. He has watched over all human history and consequently knows all the details related to the case.

Revelation 4:10-11

(1) The twenty-four elders (2) will (a) fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and (b) will worship Him who lives forever and ever, and (c) will cast their crowns before the throne, saying, "worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for (3) You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created."

1. The twenty-four elders = this will be the response of the twenty-four elders to the praise, honor and glory of the living creatures.

2. Will = indicates a future event.

a. Fall down before Him = this is the first of a two-part action.
b. Worship Him = this is the second of a two-part action. In ancient worship, one both bowed and offered verbal praise. 
c. Cast their crowns before the throne = some in misidentifying the twenty-four elders have suggested that believers will cast their crowns before the throne of God. However, this is poorly defended in Scripture.

3. You created all things = of all the possible comments available to the twenty-four elders, they focus on the fact that God alone is creator of all that is. This statement can be dismissed, but it cannot be discredited. Creation is a work of God, the Father and not an accident or the result of random chance.

It is clear that chapter 4 is dedicated to the exalted God who sits on the throne. This is none other than God, the Father. Chapter 5 will focus on the Lamb, who is none other than God, the Son.
