Everywhere you turn, God is bringing hidden things to light. He is uncovering and exposing the works of darkness, revealing things that were concealed, and disclosing things that have been kept secret. He is allowing our knowledge to expand, and giving us the keys to solve the great mysteries that have vexed mankind throughout history.
1. The first Revelation of God was Christ Himself, when He came to Earth, born of a virgin, living to teach us His ways, and dying to pay the price for our sins.
2. The second Revelation of God was the establishment of His kingdom on Earth– The choosing of His first disciples and the subsequent birth of The Church (NOT the ‘Catholic church’, which was a subversion of The Church).
3. The third Revelation of God is exposing the hidden works of darkness. He is calling Believers to partner with Him in this work.
Satan and his schemes are being revealed to the world. All the peoples of the world now have a decision to make: will they accept Jesus Christ by faith, or will they accept the tempting and tantalizing invitation of satan, to be a partof his (doomed) kingdom?
‘Time’ is drawing to a close. We are entering into the last days of God’s invitation to mankind, to be a part of His eternal kingdom. Satan’s kingdom, and the kingdoms of this world will have their brief moment, and then it will be over. Jesus Christ will defeat the kingdoms of Satan, and of the world, and will establish His kingdom here on Earth.
4. The fourth, and last, Revelation of God is His arrival here on Earth to overthrow ALL existing kingdoms, and begin to rule and reign.
All who would be a part of His kingdom, must enter in by faith–faith in Him, faith that our sins were paid in full by His death, faith that He was who He claimed to be (the only begotten son of God and the only way to the Father), faith in His promises to us (as contained in the Word of God–the Bible). Faith that has not yet seen the substance of which it hopes for.
In other words: you can’t wait until Jesus appears to accept His invitation!
If you are not a believer, the times of the third revelation of God (which we are now in), are the final days for you to make your choice. Choose wisely!!
