THE SHORT TIME IS AT HAND REV20:3:
Listen to the word of God:
The Apostle’s words to Timothy; “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom” 1Tim4:1
The Apostle’s words to the Thessalonians; ” The Lord Jesus shall be revealed (appear) from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire (judgment) taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ………….When he shall come to be glorified in His saints and to be admired in all them that believed” 2Thes1:7-10
The Apostle’s words to the Corinthians as it relates to His coming 1Cor15:23
“Then comes the end, when He (Jesus) delivers up the Kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule, all authority and power” 1Cor15:24
Those Three scriptures alone suffices us with what is to transpire at the second coming of Jesus.
Note: that He comes not to set up His kingdom, But rather, delivers it to the Father.
Jesus said concerning this day, addressing His disciples “But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that ‘Day’ when I drink it new with you in my Father’s Kingdom” Mat26:29
There are many more scriptures showing that the return of the Lord is the day of judgment for all souls. Rev22:12 and that it is the eternal kingdom of God the Father that is established in New heavens and a New earth 2Pet3:13
Therefore; presently, The prince of this world has been cast out as Jesus said. His binding with chains is symbolical of (his power restrained) and must be understood within the context of the power of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, specifically as it relates to the ‘Grace of God’ in this day of salvation 2Cor2:2
Satan’s loosening from the abyss for a short time, corresponds with the release of Apollyon form the abyss Rev9:11 who is also “The beast of the abyss that makes war upon the two witnesses” (the church Comprised of Jews and Gentiles, the two olive trees, the two lampstands) Rev11:7
It is my belief that we are presently at that time of Satan’s loosening, and that his deceptive strategies is being wrought within the political and religious arena for the purpose of silencing the Gospel of Christ. Indeed; he uses many fronts and resources from the entire beast system (the four corners of the earth)
We have an end-Time persecution coming before the two witnesses (church) are taken up into heaven (the rapture) at the second coming of Jesus.
