Is Christ Here Yet?

Mom, are we there yet? When will we get there? The redundant questions of a whining child tired on a long journey.

So are the Christians! When will Christ return? Why isn’t He here as yet? When will He come? We are so tired of this world!

These questions have been asked for centuries. While Jesus was on earth, He told his disciples that after He prepared a place in heaven He would return for them (John 14:1-6).

In the Book of Revelation, Christ also told John that He would be returning quickly (Revelation 22:20). But He has not come, not yet! When will the day arrive?

 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 4: 13-14)

But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 4: 13-14)

Are Christians going to disappear first? Are we in the tribulation? Is the antichrist in the world? Who will face the judgment of God? Who is the man of sin? Who or what is the beast? Have we received the mark (666) and do not know it?

These questions have boggled many Christians’ mind over the years. Many theologians have studied the Book of Revelation, and many interpretations of the prophecies have been given, but somehow the book remains a mystery.

The second coming of Christ seems far away, and many Christians are like the foolish virgins and are not prepared.

All ten virgins were asleep because the bridegroom took a long time to come, but only five were ready.

Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew 26:41)

As the Church waits for Christ’s return, you may become weary and fall asleep but make sure that your lamps are trim and you have enough oil.

The Book of Revelation has remained a mystery because the Lord had not revealed its secret to the world as yet.

The book was closed to Daniel but opened for John who wrote down the prophecies in parables so that they will remain hidden from all of us until God is ready to reveal them.

At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. (Matthew 11:25)

We are in the dispensation where God is now revealing the prophecies of the Book of Revelation. The Lord wants to gather in the harvest of this generation before He returns.

You do not have to be ordained a prophet for God to reveal His word to you. You only need to surrender your entire life to Him and dwell in His secret place (Psalms 91).

Over the past years, I dedicated my life to God, and He has been teaching me His word from the Bible through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation,[b] 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God[c] spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:20-21)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:20-21)

He told me to study the Bible without using any other books or the internet for interpretation because the Bible explains itself. It is a library by itself with the Holy Spirit as your guide.

So, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I studied various topics in the Bible using only an English dictionary for the meaning of words.

While studying, I recorded the lessons that God taught me. Finally, a book was formed from my notes. The book also includes my testimonies and experiences.

I learned how to overcome my trials through God’s Word, and one of the most profound lessons was from the Book of Revelation.

I do not have a degree in Theology, and I am not a Bible scholar so why would I study this challenging book?

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV)

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV)

I asked God this question when He woke me from my sleep one night seven years ago and told me that we are in His time and we need to be prepared. The Lord said that He would guide me through the Book of Revelation and He was faithful to His word.

As I delved deep into the scripture, the mystery of this book unfolded right in front my eyes, and I was immediately delivered from all the stress that had bogged me down over the years.

I received a new insight in life. I found peace and contentment but most of all I found my joy and my first love. The journey has been amazing!

Yes, the devil will attack, but God prepares a shelter for my family and me from his onslaught. I dwelled in God’s rest, and He shouted to the enemy, “Harm not the oil and Wine”

The book is available on Amazon. Please check it out and purchase it. I promise you that you will not regret it.

Thank you for your support!

Blessings
