Revelation

 

God places His own stamp on this message and promise.

He is the Alpha and the Omega, which refers to His omniscience and His foreknowledge.

God knows all that is knowable. God knows all that is possible. His knowledge is infinite. There is nothing that God does not know.

Omniscience refers to all knowledge of what is, as well as what could have been. Foreknowledge refers to the actual thoughts, motives, and events of history that will occur.

He is, was, and is to come, refers to His eternal existence. God is infinite and eternal. There was never a time when He did not exist. He had no beginning and will have no ending.

Almighty is Gods infinite power. He is omnipotent. There is nothing that He cannot do. He created the universe and sustains it. He created life and sustains it. He controls history and sustains it. God makes promises and is well able to fulfill them. Jesus Christ is God.

There are those who make fun of deity and believe that if God cannot make a rock so large that He cannot lift it, then He is not all powerful and therefore not God. However those accusations are nothing more than sinful attempts to temp God, trying to get Him to manufacture something that contradicts His own essence. Since His essence is truth, then anything that contradicts truth is a lie. God is not able to sin, and able to not sin, and therefore will never cancel out His own abilities for the sake of arrogant fools.

Since there is no life, no knowledge and no power greater than God, then there is no one, and nothing that is able to change that which He has decreed. Likewise there is nothing that is more certain than that which God promises.

Our dispensation will come to an end one day. That last day may be soon, or it may be many decades down the road. Our dispensation will end with a great apostasy, which we studied about a month ago. The great apostasy will be very similar to that which occurred in the time of Noah, when the vast majority of the people of the world will be anti-God, anti-Truth, and anti-Christ. They will be indifferent, they will be mockers, they will care less about doctrine.

This is not a situation that will occur over night, but one that will evolve as generations fail to pass on doctrinal principles to their children. And this failure may or may not be the fault of the parent generation, but one of an indifferent descendant generation.

In any case, the spiritual status of society worldwide, will diminish to an all time low. This should be an obvious result. And as the spiritual status of society diminishes, then the worldly status will rise to an all time high.

The foundation of world wisdom consists of lies and when society places their faith in lies, then trouble is not far away. Therefore, trouble will exist in the world when the Rapture occurs, and that will be the catalyst that will sweep the anti-christ into power, immediately after the Rapture.

God is omniscient. God is organized. God created this universe which is governed by rules which God established. Nothing in this universe happened by accident. And whether you are looking at the rules of physics, or biology, or principles of establishment, they were all set into place by God. God is organized. Truth is organized. Lies always attack these principles and attempts to replace them with false principles.

Spiritual advancement receives blessing, and spiritual decline receives cursing. And thus society and history is governed by attitude toward Christ. Look at the attitude of society toward Christ, and you will see the impact that will occur in history.

And so, God places His stamp on this book and on all of the scriptures, and then leaves it to you to decide to what you are going to commit your life, to God and a committed daily study, or to something else.

Your actions (doing), not words (empty talk), reveal your decision. God is the one who will evaluate you, not man.




These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
