Revelation 6:11

 

 

11 And [kai] white [leukos] robes [stole] were given [didomi] unto every one of them; [hekastos] and [kai] it was said [rheo] unto them, [autos] that [hina] they should rest [anapauo] yet [eti] for a little [mikros] season, [chronos] until [heos] their [autos] fellowservants [sundoulos] also [kai] and [kai] their [autos] brethren, [adelphos] that should [mello] be killed [apokteino] as [hos] [kai] they [autos] were, should [hos] be fulfilled. [pleroo]   KJV-Interlinear

 

 

11 And
there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they
should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow
servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, should
be completed also.    NASB

During the Tribulation, once people realize the significance of the
Rapture and identify the period of history that they are in, what book of the Bible
do you suppose will be the most read book?

I suspect that most
everyone will be reading this book of Revelation, more than any other of the
books in the Bible. That seems only
reasonable.

One would assume that the
Psalms and the gospels will follow close behind as the most read books, but
this book will have immediate impact on everyone’s day to day life, as they see
the world literally unraveling, around them.

For within this book are
all of the instructions for survival and comfort during those last years of
human rule.

Here is one of those
instruction sets.

There will be millions of
martyred believers. This is just how the
world will go during the reign of the anti-christ.  Believers and Jews will be among the most hated
people on the planet, and the target of all out violence.  As it is Satan’s intention to rid the earth
of all Jews and all Christians, leaving Christ no one to return to, to save at
the Second Advent.

So, the instructions are,
to expect it, hide as best you can, survive as best you can, but in the end,
most of the believers will not survive to the end.

That said, there is a comfort ahead.
Though Satan can have his way with your physical body, he cannot have
your soul (which contains your true and real life).  God possesses that.

If you die, then be
prepared to rest in heaven with Christ, while the remainder of history
continues at Christ’s direction. If you
are in pain, if you have to suffer, it will last only a little while, and then will
be no more (forever).

These instructions go out
to everyone, but not everyone (believers) will die during the Tribulation.  Some will survive.  So there is hope in both directions.  To die and go to heaven immediately and then
reign during the Millennium, or to survive and enter into the Millennium to
repopulate the world during that one-thousand year reign of Christ.

As for those who are
martyred, there will be for them in heaven, a symbolic white robe of purity and
peace and righteousness. No more judgment, no more pain, no more suffering,
only pure and uninterrupted peace and happiness and rest.  The robes are symbolic and assure them that
they will receive their resurrection at the end of the Tribulation, Rev.
20:4-5.

Christ gives further
instructions. Rest and leave the remainder
of history up to Him. Judgment will come
to those who deserve it. No one will escape
the punishments due them.

Jesus Christ knows the
exact number of those who will be martyred, as He knows all details of history.  Nothing gets past Him.  Nothing gets missed by Him.  Nothing gets forgotten by Him.

Throughout the seven
years of the Tribulation, the numbers of martyred believers,
will increase, but none will be lost.
Even the time frame for this period of history is known by God, right
down to the very last second.

Little, ‘autos,’ means very
small. Season, ‘chronos,’
represents a specific or designated period of time.  So the Tribulation, will not go on and on, and
will not have an ambiguous finish, but will last for a specific time and then
will end abruptly. This Christ knows
also. And by stating it, He promises it.

 

 

End of study

 

 

 




 

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

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.
