Daniel 12: 7 - (7) Seven Year Period
Revelation 7:14 - A Place they (Saints) came out of
( 7 ) Year period of Time:
"The Great Tribulation" is seen as a period of time with a span of seven years as most religious leaders believe.
Now, the (7) seven years (Daniel 7:25 ; 12:7) is referred to by some that say it deals with the life of mankind after the resurrection of the saints of God.
In addition, this (7) seven year period many believe that if any man or woman will be saved; that they must refuse the Mark of the “Beast” (Satan) or face the possibility of death by beheading.
The scriptures and verses that are commonly used is taken from the passages below:
Book of Revelation Chapter 13
Revelation Chapter ( 20 ) Verse ( 4 )
Adam to Jesus Christ
Now, it is commonly stated by many scholars and bible and teachers alike that the time period
from Adam to Jesus Christ = ( 4 ) Days
Christ to the Church = ( 2 ) Days
A total ( 6 ) days of work that Must be performed according to the
commandment of God. Exodus 16:5, Deuteronomy 5:12-13.
The “Sabbath Day” or the last day (1000 years) ends the work week for the people (Saints) of God; because this time represents a period that is Holy unto the Lord and no work would be done.
2nd peter 3:8.
A day to God is as a (1000) Thousand years and a thousand years as a day. Therefore, still being under the”Royal law”the believers must complete our work week and the last day must be a day of rest for us.
Revelation 20:3- 5
The followers of the Lord Jesus Christ will reign with Christ for a “Day” that is equal to a (1000) years, and the (1000) year reign of the Lord Jesus Christ is the completion of the our work week.
some bible proclaim that the (1000) year reign of the Lord Jesus Christ will happen at the end of the “Great Tribulation”; but common sense declares plainly that immediately after the 6th work day comes the seventh “Sabbath” (7th Day) day of rest that is and was appointed for the people of God
Howbeit, as a teacher of the word of God I will leave it up to you to decide who is biblically correct, because it is my job as a teacher to judge but simply to point out all of hidden details with scripture.
A“ Bed ” (Grave - The resting place for the “Dead” (Wicked))
The Book of Revelation Chapter 2:20, 21 say that for Jezebel and those that commit adultery would be a bed of “Trouble” (Tribulation).
Now, we know that Jezebel did not repent of her evil ways and was cast down into a “Bed”of “Great Tribulation” or “Affliction”; where she shall remain with those (Unbeliever) that sinned against God and did not repent, until the Great White Thrown Judgment.
Psalms 139:8 (Linked)
Dead - A grave; a plot of land prepared for planting; Conjugal union.
Conjugal - Pertaining to marriage and the physical relationship of husband and wife.
God (Christ Jesus) has a “Wife“ (Bride) or woman that bring forth his “Seed” (Word)
Revelation 19:7-8 and Ephesians 5:23- 33.
Satan emulates every thing of God (2nd Corinthians 11:14) and he (Satan) also has a “ Wife“ (Bride) Revelation.12:7 and we know that Satan’s Bride who is known as the inhabitants of the“World” (Unbelievers).
The rich man according to the scripture found in Luke 16:19- 31 was placed in a grave (Hell) and was experiencing “Great Tribulation” (Affliction). Also, the scripture in the Book of Isaiah 53:9 declares that our Lord Jesus Christ our Lord made his “grave” (Bed) with the wicked and the rich in his death.
Now, everyone that places their faith and trust in Jesus Christ can be saved from this place (grave) of “Great Tribulation” (affliction) that was appointed to hold the wicked, until the White Thrown Judgment.
The true riches that sent the rich man in Luke 16:19-31 to Hell or that will also send whosoever rejects Jesus Christ to a place (bed) of eternal damnation are found in Galatians Chapter 5:19-21.
Why did the rich man end up in Hell?
Because, he did not love “Righteousness” (Christ) and hate iniquity (Sin)?
Philippians 3:9, 1st Corinthians 1:30
The people that has become rich in the things of this world are “clothed “with those ungodly attributes.
A place they came out of:
“Great Tribulation” in the Book of Revelation 7:13-17 was a place that every soul (person) that was washed by the blood of Jesus Christ ; from Adam to the present time (moment) came out of.
The place of great tribulation that the people of God must come out of is the flesh that Apostle Paul
called a “Burden” in (2nd Corinthians 12:7); because the flesh is a place of trials by way of the motions of sin ((Romans 7:5) that cause us to we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our house (body) . And, again Apostle Paul says who shall deliver me (us) from this “Body of Death”?
Thus, we know that we must go through the vail ( flesh) to enter into Spirit, but we as Jesus suffered in the flesh are told to arm ourselves likewise. And, those that were born in the flesh must now be birthed of the Spirit and be being born again not of the flesh, but of the Spirit.
The fall of man caused them becoming slaves to sin and if we rare slaves to sin then we servants of sin fulfilling the lusts of the flesh that is a place of “Great Tribulation” and sorrows.
Personally, Satan is not my biggest problem because I know that the devil is not omnipresent nor can be every where at once. Therefore, I am aware that I (that is my flesh) is my biggest problem and I know healing come when I am willing to acknowledge truth and defy my flesh before my God.
Satan the devil cannot tempt me in Florida and tempt you in New York or Canada, because Satan is not omnipresent. But, we are tempted and affected as a result due to the fact that we have been careless to welcomed all manner of ungodly words that are spirit in our lives and these spirit possess the devil nature (character, personality, temperament, haibits, etc) in our members (body) . Yet, the word of God is mighty through the pulling down of strongholds! And, if we cast down every imagination (Image / of / Nations) we can be victorious, as Jesus Christ was victorious in this world.
The people of God must understand that whether we are awake or asleep the motion(s) of sin that is within our members are at all times working within our conscious mind. Likewise, also within our
sub- consciousness seeking to bring us into bondage again by fighting and warring against our minds (24) hour a day. Flesh spelled backward in the English language is spelled as (hself) the (H) in the Spanish language is always silent leaving the word self. Now, if you really want to know just what fleshly dispositions God desires to cease in your life then I admonish you to get a dictionary and define the word (Self).
Sub - Being defined as under or beneath
Subconscious - Not clearly or wholly conscious
Now, many have taught that the people of (Revelation 7:13-17) are solely those in some
Let's disprove that theory! Always, look for key words or phrases!
Washed, Robes by blood of the Lamb (Jesus). Every child of God from Adam to present needs
the blood of Jesus Christ to cleanse their Conscience.
Every person that has been born of God has need of our “Conscience” to be washed by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus Christ).
Because, of sin within our members and consciousness we have need of His
(Jesus Christ) “Blood” to purge us from the guilt of sin.
Hebrews Chapter 9.
In addition, God has clothed the saints of God with the fine linen being adorned as the wife(Bride) of Christ who is our righteousness (Revelation 19:8).
The Lord Jesus Christ first descended to freed captive saints that were held by the spirit of death in the bosom of Abraham > (Luke 16:19, Revelation Chapter 6:8, Hebrews 2:14-16).
The souls that died in faith who were held in the bosom of Abraham baptized of John the Baptist prior to hearing the message of the gospel of Christ that did free them from their spiritual prison
Q and A
Where are the inhabitants that were once held in the Bosom of Abraham?
Revelation 6:10 -11
The saints that are at rest under the altar and wait, until the last person (child of God) should be carried by their angels to the 3rd heaven where they will meet there Lord Jesus Christ.
Rest - To lie in death; to sleep
Sleep - Any condition of inactivity, or rest the saints of God are led to believe; that if someone does not get caught up, or raptured that they still can be saved.
Beloved, please understand that there are only (2) resurrection spoken of within the Holy Bible that on a whole scale involving a select group of people and they are referred to as the resurrected of the just (saints > believers in Jesus Christ ) and resurrection of the unjust (sinners > Non believers):
And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Please, do not buy into the left behind theory, that is preached throughout the world, because if you do not make the first resurrection you will surely be apart of the second resurrection that is unto damnation
The angels that the Lord Jesus Christ assigned the Key to the bottomless pit bottomless pit (Hell) has to (re)opened. (Revelation 20:1-3)
Why did I say that the pit was ( re) opened?
In order for the locusts and their king (Devil) must first be locked up inside the “Pit” (Hell); before the locusts and Satan can escape out of the pit and overcome the (2) two prophets . (Revelation 9:1-11)
Revelation 20:1- 3 (Satan is Jailed) is the linked to Revelation 11:7 (Satan Release from Bonds) Thus, the reign of Christ and the Church (Revelation 20:4-6) had to have already taken place; which leaves the two witnesses bring judgment upon the earth in the earth when Satan is released from his bonds (Jail).
Revelations 9:1 - 14 / Genesis 9:26
Says that the (5th) trumpet of judgment was blown and judgment (wrath) of God is now in process and
there are no distinctions; which allowed the two witnesses (prophets) to smite the (Entire) earth as often as they desired, until their time and mission was fulfilled.
Commentary (Exodus 9:26)
When the Israelites were in Egypt God provided provision and made distinctions to allow the Egyptians to see His majesty in power and judgment and the Israelites to know this was His doing (Glory).
Again, there are no distinctions made after the church and bride of Christ was resurrected (caught up) away from the earth (Revelation 18:23). Therefore when the groom (Christ) and “Bride“ (Church) is gone the ruling authority during the wrath of God is the (2) two witnesses (Prophets of God).
Commentary (Revelation 20:6)
"Blessed and Holy is he (Anyone) that takes part in the first resurrection ( not left behind Theory) and we know that if you do not take part in the (1st) Resurrection that your not blessed or holy.
Now, if a person does not make the first resurrection means they will surely make the second and we are assured that by making the first resurrection means that the “Spirit of Death” (Revelation 6:8) that shall have no power over us (Revelation 2:11). Again, Daniel 12:2 says that the resurrection of the saints is unto everlasting life and the resurrection of the sinners who will be awaking unto everlasting shame and contempt.
Revelation 20:1- 4
Says that the devil was cast into the bottomless pit for a thousand years and the bible also testified that the devil and Satan was placed in bonds (chains, fetters, or shackles) as well inside the pit.
Why am I making this point ?
To reveal the fact that when the pit was reopened by the angel that was assigned to release the locusts out of the pit; that they were told that they not to harm the (men) that had the sealed of God
Commentary (Revelation 11:7)
Says that when the “Two witnesses” have finished their testimony that the devil (Satan) will ascend out of the pit that was reopened to release his minions and Satan only after the prophets time is expired
The prophets of God are in the earth during that time period when the devil is released from his prison pit (Hell);which puts the two olive trees and the devil (Beast) in the same time period .
Do you remember when I spoke of Satan being in chains? One day as I studied, the Spirit of God pointed this word (Chains) to show that a person that is in jail will remain in jail confined by chains; unless the chains of confinement are removed. (Revelation 20:1-2)
Why did the locust go forth with out their king?
Because, the devil could not escape from his bonds (fetters or shackles)
The main reason that the locusts had to come out of the pit without their king was, because the devil was still in chains and was not allowed to be released from those chains until the “Two witnesses” that were rendering judgment in the earth completed their testimony (mission).
In Days of Old
It was always to the glory of a king to lead his troops into battle, but the Lord God denied Satan (Revelation 9:7-11) from receiving any glory to lead his troops (Locust) into battle and they
(locusts) that had to go forth into battle without their king.
Christ (The word of God) shall lead his troops > Revelation 19:11.
May the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ forever grant you the understanding, grace and wisdom to receive His Holy word.
2nd Samuel 11:1
