Things To Come: P.2 (11.12.17)

Revelation 1:1-3 
[1] The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: [2] Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. [3] Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

The Word of God is sealed by the Holy Spirit. You have to have the Holy Spirit to get revelation knowledge from the Word.

John 16:13
[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Isaiah 46:9-10
[9] Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, [10] Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

There are keys to understanding the bible that unlock truths.

Luke 11:52…Jesus rebuked the religious hierarchy for removing the keys of knowledge.

Matthew 13:35
[35] That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

Isaiah 42:8-9
[8] I am the Lord : that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. [9] Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

The thing that sets the one true God apart from all the man-made “gods” of the world is that He declares the end from the beginning. He tells us what will happen before it happens.

Isaiah 41:21-22
[21] Produce your cause, saith the Lord ; bring forth your strong reasons , saith the King of Jacob. [22] Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be , that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.

Luke 17:26-29

Ecclesiastes 1:9
[9] The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

God uses the past as a picture of the future…from the very beginning of creation God had the end established.

Galatians 4:4

2 Peter 3:7-8
[7] But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. [8] But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Genesis 1:31
[31] And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

2 Peter 3:7-10
[7] But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. [8] But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. [9] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. [10] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

God can’t reveal to you what you never put before your eyes. If you want revelation knowledge, get in the Word.

Jesus being raised from the dead was first revealed to Mary because she was at the tomb.
