[THE FINISHED MYSTERY, CONT.]
[the preparatory message to the seventh trumpet]
But first a preparatory work is being done; even now as the other trumpets are sounding. You read about it in the tenth chapter of Revelation. A mighty angel is seen coming down from heaven with a rainbow on his head. This is none other than the angel or messenger of the seventh trumpet. Before He blows the seventh trumpet He has a ministry to perform to His people, for the mighty messenger is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, coming in the power of His Spirit with an end-time message for those who have ears to hear. This is a preparation for that which is to be released at the blowing of the seventh trumpet. The blowing of the six preceding trumpets unleashed forces of judgment, for six is man's number; thus the trumpets, up to and including the sixth, deal with worldly or carnal events as they relate to the end-time judgments of God on rebellious man. But the blowing of the seventh trumpet brings the releasing of great spiritual power, for seven is the number of the church; and the true church of the living God shall be brought to the place, by the grace of the reigning Christ, where it will be able to receive an endowment with power such as the world has never seen. But first there is a preparatory ministry of the Messenger of the Covenant, even the Lord Jesus Himself, as He comes to visit His temple to cleanse and restore. This is the meaning of the little book which is held in the hand of the mighty messenger (10:2). The little book is open to give light and understanding; it is the revelation of the end-time purposes of the Lord for His church. It is even that which is now being made known by the apostles and prophets which He has chosen. And this revelation will continue to unfold until the seventh trumpet is ready to sound and the secret strategy of the Lord is ready to be enacted. For I say to you, my people, that which is to come to pass at the blowing of the seventh trumpet shall cause the final veil to be removed and the mystery of God concerning the church to be openly declared for all to see. Therefore hear and prepare, for the time is short; and much yet needs to be done in that spiritual body which I am preparing for this end-time.
You will note, says the Lord, that just before the seventh trumpet begins to sound, the mighty messenger lifts His hand to heaven and swears that there shall be a time of delay or waiting no longer (10:6), but that in the days of the voice of the seventh angel the mystery of God should be finished. (10:7). Now let me tell you what this mystery is, for this is a part of the revelation of the little book in the hand of the mighty messenger.
There are many mysteries in the Word of God. They are not mysteries in the sense that they cannot be understood, but they are mysteries because they are kept secret in the counsels of your God until the time comes for them to be made known by revelation of the Spirit. For is it not written that 'the secret things belong to the Lord our God; but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever’? (Deut. 29:29). In my infinite wisdom I know that men are ready to receive only small portions of truth at a time. Therefore I have hidden or veiled much truth in my Word through parables, dark sayings, types and symbols, lest man is illuminated before he is ready to accept the weight of responsibility that goes with understanding, and precipitate himself into judgment. For you see I am a merciful God, and I reveal only that which men are capable of receiving at a certain time, veiling the rest from his view, lest he stumble to his own hurt. Those who are ready to receive more, to them I give more understanding. This is why it was spoken by the Lord Jesus to His intimate followers, 'To you it is given to know the mystery of the
; but to them that are without, all these things are done in parables.' (Mark 4:11). Yes, veiled in parables, lest they see more than they are capable of bearing. Even so is it with the mystery of the church. To the apostle Paul was it given to unveil this mystery in its basic or fundamental aspects. But certain aspects have been left veiled until this end-time, because it was neither necessary nor expedient to reveal them before. kingdomof God
[the seventh trumpet]
I have already revealed much concerning my end-time purposes for the church, but there is yet one mighty event which must take place before the final veil can be removed. For when the seventh angel begins to sound (10:7) THEN shall I REMOVE BODILY 144,000 of the choicest saints (Rev. 14:1). THEN shall there be no more mystery; for my saints that remain, as well as all those who believe in me, shall suddenly realize that they have been left to go through the tribulation. THEN shall they realize the truth of the household of the church being ‘broken through' (Luke 12:39) in the hour of the 'thief in the night,’ that the JEWELS might be removed. (Mal. 3:17). THEN shall the foolish virgins scurry to 'buy oil’, for the wise virgins, the 144,000 firstfruits, will have been received by the Bridegroom at the midnight hour. (Matt. 25:1-10). THEN shall
, the church of the living God, begin to travail, and for 50 days shall there be prayer day and night for a mighty revival. THEN shall Pentecost be fully fulfilled as I pour out my Spirit on all flesh (Joel 2:28-29). THEN shall my church go forth as a mighty army to preach the gospel of, the kingdom to all nations (Matt. 24:14). Zion
Think not that I shall remove the choicest of saints that they may be taken off somewhere to do nothing. They shall be translated and receive their glorified bodies. Then they shall meet with the Lord in the upper stratosphere WHERE HE WILL HAVE RETURNED TO BEGIN HIS END-TIME PAROUSIA OR PRESENCE, unseen by human eyes. Then they shall be commissioned by the Lord and receive their assignments for the tribulation period. Almost immediately they shall begin to appear to the saints yet on earth to give them encouragement and instruction. Since they will be functioning in their glorified bodies they will have the power to appear and disappear at will. They will continue to minister to the saints on earth during the entire tribulation period.
The ministry of these glorified saints on the earth during that time, plus the ministry of a small company who will have entered into IMMORTALITY IN PHYSICAL BODIES, will constitute the MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD which all creation has been waiting for. (Rom. 8:19). My manifested sons in immortal glorified bodies, and my manifested sons in immortal physical bodies, will constitute a tower of strength and help to that great army of my saints who will be going forth to preach the gospel of the kingdom in all nations. For I will yet be glorified in the earth in and through a people who will preach with power and authority, accompanied by mighty signs and miracles. Thus by the manifestation of my sons, and by a mighty out-pouring of my Spirit on my church, I will get myself glory and bring a bounteous harvest into my Kingdom.
The seventh trumpet will continue to blow for 3-1/2 years, during which time the other trumpets will also consummate their sounding. This will be the period of the great tribulation spoken of in the scriptures (Matt. 24:21). At the close of the tribulation the final blast of the seventh trumpet will sound (I Thess. 4:16) and the dead in Christ shall be raised; then the living saints shall be translated and ‘caught up’ to be with the Lord (I Thess. 4:17). Having received His own the Lord will then return with all of His saints in power and great glory (Matt. 24:30). Then will the 'kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of the Lord and of his anointed; and he shall reign for the eons.' (Rev. 11:15).
My people, there is so much that I would share with you concerning that which is coming, for the little book that is open (Rev. 10:2) contains many secrets that are yet to be revealed before the seventh trumpet blows. Therefore hearken, and heed that which I speak to you, that your heart may be ready to receive more of my revelation for this hour in human history."
(End of prophecy.)
