BIBLE STUDY: The Olivet Prophecy - It Was An Ancient And Personal Warning From Jesus Christ. But Did Jesus Intend For This Message To Be Even More Relevant For Those Of Us Who Are Living Today?

The Olivet Prophecy: It Was An Ancient And Personal Warning From Jesus Christ. But Did Jesus Intend For This Message To Be Even More Relevant For Those Of Us Who Are Living Today?

Some Biblical scholars contend the Olivet Discourse, as they call it; was intended only to warn Jesus’ Disciples of the destruction of the temple and Jerusalem in 70 A.D. (less than 40 years after He ascended up to heaven). They contend that the rest of Christ’s teachings on this subject, found recorded in Matthew 24 / Mark 13 / and in Luke 21; are simply symbolic; or figures of speech; much like a metaphor (a word or phrase which is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable). Is this true? Or - is Jesus Christ personally warning those of us living in the last days, those who can hear Him; to take Drastic and Specific Action, in order to save themselves from imminent destruction which is coming upon a perverse, corrupt, warped, and crooked generation? Join us today, for Part One of a Four Part Bible Study Series, as we take a fascinating look at what both Jesus and the Bible have to say on the matter (Matthew 17:5 / Mark 9:7 / Luke 9:35-36)! www.onug.us

How would you react if God suddenly spoke to you and warned you to take drastic action to save your life from imminent destruction (Amos 3:6-8 / Numbers 10:1-13)? There is Peace, Safety, Understanding, Wisdom, Blessings, Joy and Great Reward in following EXACTLY what God commands His People to do (John 15:15-16 / Revelation 10:7-11 / Genesis 6:13-22, 18:17-19)!!! If Jesus delivered this personal message, directly to you, would you listen attentively? Would you heed what God has to say? Or would you just scoff and disregard His warning (Jeremiah 23:22-33 / Matthew 11:29-30 / Ezekiel 29:21 / Daniel 2:47-49, 9:20-23)?

Instructions: One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us) publishes and distributes weekly Bible Studies, worldwide – free of charge, to anyone who requests them, in both printed and electronic formats. Our Studies are intended to be a simple and fun way to learn the Scriptures, and are very easy to follow! We adhere to Jesus Christ’s Biblical instructions to teach and feed the flock of God portions of meat in due season, on weekly Sabbaths, and on the seven annual Holy Days throughout each calendar year (Luke 12:42 / Isaiah 28:9-10 / Matthew 13:52). Using both the Old and New Testaments, our Bible Studies are designed to present a premise, make a statement, or ask a question – followed by one or more Scriptural references. Just look up and read from your Bible the Scriptures listed. Comments following questions elaborate on the Scriptures you just read. Pray always before beginning any study of God’s Word, asking God to open both your eyes and your mind to His Truth; then Prove everything you read, is in fact the Truth, by comparing it to The Word of God (1 Thessalonians 5:21 / 2 Timothy 3:15-17). Then use the Biblical System of Checks and Balances, and SEE if both Jesus Christ, and the First Century Church of God Apostles – also Did, Said, and Taught these SAME THINGS (Galatians 1:1-12, 5:25 / 1 Peter 2:21, 25 / 1 John 2:3-6)! That’s all there is to it! Our Bible Studies are based on the King James Version, unless otherwise stated. We will be praying for your eyes to “see” (Matthew 13:11-17); and we are always available to answer any of your questions! Be Blessed, in Jesus’ Name! - One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us).

Are YOU Prepared For The Catastrophic?

According to Jesus, we should be! But How, When, and Where do we prepare?

What will save YOU and your family, if and when, things get really bad in our society?

Some prepare by becoming "Preppers" (or those who believe a catastrophic disaster or emergency will likely occur in the future, and that making active preparations, typically by stockpiling food, ammunition, and other supplies will enable them to survive). Others join militias, or buy a firearm; and some others begin to attend a church - so that they have assurance that they will be Raptured (or supernaturally wisked away to heaven) in order to avoid the perilous Tribulation disaster entirely! But are these views Biblical? Would Jesus endorse them? www.onug.us                 

Can Your Church Save You When Things Get REALLY Bad?

I recently read an article from a man who professed that only he was selected by God, to lead God's True Church. The irony in the article was, that this man took great pains to discuss why other men, who were also claiming to be God's end time church leaders, were in fact not so! The article spent much of its bulk using human wisdom, emotion, and nostalgia, to attempt to convince the members of competing churches, to leave their current folds, and unify under the man with the self-appointed human title, and under his church's absolute authority! The article concluded with this church leader saying, only his message would be effective in warning God's People how to escape the impending disaster Christ spoke of! According to him, All other churches not under his personal leadership, "were infected to various degrees with the apostate's thinking and doctrines", and would therefore be ineffective!

But when we read Jesus Christ's very own words in Matthew 28:18-20, we see that He was given ALL the Power in heaven and in earth by God the Father; and Jesus personally assured us He would NEVER leave His Sheep unattended, and that He would be with His Church, right up until the end of the world came to pass!!! That's a Great Comfort for us; but Jesus more importantly gave His Church a Way to ESCAPE the coming calamity!!!

Jesus told His True Church that they could be Saved, IF they did certain things:

"WATCH ye therefore, and PRAY ALWAYS, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man!!!" (Luke 21:36).

But Which Church Do We Choose? Which Warning Do We Heed? How Do We Tell The Difference? www.onug.us

Jesus Did Say He Built His Church (Singular), Upon The Giant, Massive Boulder: "Petra" in Greek (meaning Himself); and NOT on the "Petros" (small stone, which we translate as "Peter" in English), in Matthew 16:18

"And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (Petros: small stone); and upon This Rock (Petra: Giant, Massive Boulder - Myself) I will build My Church (Body of Christ); and the gates of "hell" (Hades: meaning the grave or tomb) shall not prevail against it!!!"

Christ did NOT build His Church upon Peter, as the Catholic Church tries to twist Scripture into teaching! Jesus founded His Church, His Body of Believers and Followers Upon Himself - NOT any mortal man!!! www.onug.us

The Key to escaping the Terrible Things Jesus spoke about in Matthew 24 / Mark 13 / Luke 21 - is to Recognize which Church is God's Appointed Body of Christ; and which Message came from Jesus Christ's Lips, and NOT from men's lips!!!

Although Jesus said His Church was a Singular Entity (Body, Assembly, Congregation), we must follow the guidance of Scripture in proving the dynamics of that Body (Isaiah 28:9-10 / 1 Thessalonians 5:21).

Jesus says His Church is made up of many folds (John 10:16).

Church leaders are appointed by Christ, and NOT by men (John 15:16 / Ezekiel 33:7 / Romans 10:14-21).

The Biblically Defined and Unified Church of God exists in Seven Spiritual Classifications. Originally located in seven ancient cities; the seven churches are now also indicative of the seven church eras, as well as being used by Jesus Christ to Currently define seven classifications of characteristics, found within His Church Body today! God has assigned seven Holy Angels to each watch over one of the seven segments of God's Church (Revelation 1:2-20, 2:1-29, 3:1-22, 22:16). www.onug.us

God further tells us that before Christ's Return, His True Church will include people from EVERY and ALL nations, kindreds, people, and tongues (Revelation 7:9-10).

When we Understand that God's True Church is just Too Big to be defined by human labels, or to be governed by just one human man or church leader; when we understand that God Appoints human leaders now, under the watchful eye and Authority of Seven Angels, who each report directly to Jesus Christ; then, and only then, will we be able to recognize what the Church is NOT!!!

Once we have this knowledge, we are then able to look for a fold of God's Church that actually Does what Jesus Did, Says what Jesus Said, and Teaches what Jesus Taught (Galatians 1:1-12 / 1 John 2:3-6 / John 13:12-17 / Luke 6:46)!!! www.onug.us

God Does NOT Change (Malachi 3:6 / Hebrews 13:8); So The Church Of God Can Still Be Found Keeping God's Original Sabbaths and Holy Days (Exodus 31:13-18 / Leviticus 23:1-44)! God's Church can be found by what they Do, Say, and Teach; NOT by human claims and human labels, or by human leaders using human intellect and human wisdom (Deuteronomy 12:32 / Revelation 22:18-19)!!!

Those who still Do, Say, and Teach the Exact Same Things BOTH Jesus and the First Century Church of God DID, SAID, and TAUGHT, can still be found every Sabbath (Saturday) morning, Preaching the Gospel of God's Coming Kingdom, and also WARNING this world, just like Noah did to the pre-flood world; of this modern world's soon coming disaster and destruction!!! www.onug.us

We invite YOU to join us today for a very in-depth look at Jesus Christ's Olivet Prophecy; learn How to WATCH, and learn exactly HOW God The Father Commands us to "Prepare For The Catastrophic", in the years just ahead!!! www.onug.us

-------------------------------------------------------

Few realize that God still speaks to us today (Hebrews 1:1-9)! Today, God the Father speaks to you and I through His Son, and by the writings of Jesus’ Apostles, who have faithfully recorded Christ’s Words in the Bible for us to read (2 Timothy 3:16-17 / Deuteronomy 29:28-29). Like Abraham, you and I will still find favor in God’s eyes if we don’t stagger at the Promises Jesus Christ makes to us; you and I will be still be considered Righteous in Jesus’ eyes, if we believe in and teach others, that God the Father will usher in His Kingdom upon this earth - with His Son as KING upon that Throne; and if we believe that it will occur exactly when and how Jesus told us it would happen (Romans 4:20-24 / Revelation 22:14-15)! Are YOU watching as Jesus Christ commanded us to? Are YOU Justified by Christ’s Blood? Are YOU still being Sanctified by God’s Sabbath’s and Holy Days? Are YOU one of the Wise Virgins who has made themselves READY to be received by Christ at His Return? Let’s listen carefully to the Words of Jesus and SEE!!!

This evil world is only going to intensify, as we move toward the time in history, where everything comes crashing down around us! However, those called by God can REJOICE; because our Heavenly Father is telling us to LEARN from the prophecies in His Scripture, to take COMFORT and to have HOPE; God is instructing us to become LIKEMINDED with the brother and sister whom God the Father assigns you to sit next to, every single Sabbath and on every Holy Day! Study and Pray that YOU may become of the SAME MIND and of the SAME WORDS, as all of those whom Christ will raise up - in Power and Awesome Glory at His Second Coming (Romans 15:4-13 / 2 Peter 1:16, 19-21)!!! Amen!!! So, when you read the Bible, remember this, “God is speaking directly to you and I; AND God, Our Father, is telling us, we – in His Church, that we MUST receive, accept, and love one another EXACTLY as Christ received us – or we will NOT Glorify God; nor will we teach, by our words and by our deeds - the Gentiles (or the rest of the world) to also Praise and Glorify God!!!”

A Warning For Our Time:                                www.onug.us

The book of Revelation is full of warnings of Awesome and Catastrophic events; events that Jesus says to those who are living in the last days, are soon to occur (Revelation 22:7)!!!

“Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth (treasures, ponders, and acts on) the sayings of the prophecy of this book."

Jesus’ mother, Mary, and the shepherds of Luke Chapter 2, are some other great Biblical examples of what it really means to “keep sayings of the prophecy of this book” (Luke 2:18-20)!!! Biblical prophecies are NOT to be taken lightly! We should not dismiss them as simple metaphors, if we truly do know The Plan of God! Knowing, Believing, Pondering, Preaching, and Acting on revealed prophecy will have a tremendous effect on your future! As the old saying goes, “Forewarned is Forearmed”!!!

If you will heed the warnings God has recorded for you; God Himself, promises a way of escape from the coming time of great tribulation (1 Corinthians 10:12-13 / Matthew 6:12-15 / 1 Corinthians 1:5-10 / Hebrews 10:23-25 / 2 Peter 2:9 / Revelation 1:1-7)!!!

We invite you to learn more about what God says about a Place of Safety during the Tribulation, by reading our Bible Study:

Is Petra The Place Of Safety?

When Christ Returns, we will either Wail or we will Rejoice, there is NO in between!!!    www.onug.us

The Olivet Prophecy of Jesus Christ is instruction for those He calls to REJOICE with Him at His Second Coming! We MUST Heed, Pray, Prepare, then Rejoice!!! Now that is Powerful Warning and it is also a Powerful Promise!!!

The Destruction of the Second Temple, The Second Coming of Jesus Christ, and The End of the World (Matthew 24:1-4):

Understanding how God uses prophecy, understanding that God always warns His Elect before doing anything (Amos 3:6-8), and hopefully having developed a good understanding of The Plan of God (Matthew 15:10) - because you are keeping His Holy days; you should then be able to “see” (Matthew 13:11-12, 16-17) that the Scriptural warnings of Jesus' "Olivet Prophecy", recorded in Matthew 24 / Mark 13 / and Luke 21, take on special meaning for those of us living in this 21st century! Open any newspaper or magazine, watch any news or current events program; and you cannot help but notice that our world is experiencing the conditions that Christ foretold us would precede these great worldwide catastrophes! www.onug.us

Question: What was Jesus’ warning to us, about those who would come in later years, proclaiming Him to be the Christ (Matthew 24:5)? Were there just a few that would come in His Name, and what would be the result of their teachings? Was Christ’s warning limited to false ministers and false teachings about Jesus, or were there others to watch out for too (Matthew 24:11)? What would be the result of their teachings? Can we know for certain who these false ministers and false prophets actually work(ed) for; despite their smiling faces, smooth words, pleasing personalities, and huge followings (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)? What would be the worldwide effect from these false ministers and false prophets, and how could this be (Revelation 12:9)? What did Jesus say would be the end, or the reward of these wolves in sheep’s clothing (Matthew 5:18-20, 11:11 / Revelation 21:7-8, 11)? www.onug.us

Question: What other events did Jesus predict would take place before His Second Coming (Matthew 24:6-7)? In a world spiritually deceived through the efforts of the devil and his many false ministers, all of whom preach a false Christ, and all of them substituting false gospels in place of Christ's True Gospel (which is the TRUTH about the coming Kingdom of God to this earth, see Galatians 1:8-12); we are now currently in a recess period until we all experience another World War! Two world wars have already occurred within the last 100 years; and each one was greater in scope than the one before it! In this short intermission between global conflicts, “brushfire wars” have raged, and will continue to be fought; as will the many media spawned "Rumors of Wars", which Jesus spoke of! “See that ye be not troubled!!!”, was Jesus Command to us!  www.onug.us

Currently, we can see Famines, Disease Epidemics, and Earthquakes in diverse or unusual places, which will continue to grow in severity; culminating in another, and far worse World War (WWIII); the Bible promises us exactly that before Christ returns! Billions of people are shortly going to experience these extremely horrifying effects... so says Jesus! Have YOU made YOURSELF ready? Are YOU Justified? Are YOU Sanctified? Learn and obey Jesus Christ’s 52 / 7 Sanctification Command (Exodus 31:12-14, 16) that you may be Protected during the Tribulation; and be both ready for and saved at Christ’s Return!!!

Question: As devastating to the world, as these events will be; what does Jesus call them (Matthew 24:8)? Another word for “sorrows” here, would be “travail” or “TRIBULATION”!

This four-part "beginning of sorrows", or the progression of disasters, is also pictured by the first four of Seven Seals, or The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:1-8).

For a Clearer Understanding of the Beginning of Sorrows, please see our Bible Study Chart, “The Olivet Prophecy & The Seven Seals of Revelation” which is attached to the end of this lesson. Additional copies may be obtained FREE of charge, by calling One Nation Under God Ministries at (239) 353-1303, or contacting us on-line at www.onug.us .

Through a kind of parable, Jesus is instructing us in the principle of “Cause and Effect”. If people believe the message given to us by “the father of murder” (John 8:44), rather than the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6), they will eventually turn to murder and war to resolve their differences! Like the law of gravity (you cannot change it); war causes shortages of food, producing malnutrition and opening the door to many diseases! God is showing us that these sorrows trace their roots back to Disobedience and Rejection of Him (Luke 6:46 / 1 John 2:3-6)!!! www.onug.us

Mankind has built their human civilizations on a foundation of sand (Matthew 7:24-27), and because of that, disasters occur upon humanity with terrifying regularity! Cause and Effect!!! Because God is just, it cannot be otherwise (Deuteronomy 30:19-20)!!! God has said, "The wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23), and "The soul who sins shall die" (Ezekiel 18:4). In addition, He has given us two sets of Blessings or Cursings (Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28) to provide us with frightening and vivid depictions of what happens when we disobey Him!!! You can’t have both; you choose either Good or Evil; God or Satan!!! You are either Sanctified and Ready at Christ’s Return; or you are NOT (Matthew 7:13-14)!!! www.onug.us

To learn more about what Jesus Christ taught His Disciples about “52 / 7 Sanctification”, read our Bible Study:

Justification, Sanctification, and God's Truth

The Four Horsemen are similar warnings or reminders that God is still on His Throne, judging mankind for their sins! False ideas (religion) lead to war, war leads to famine, famine leads to pestilence, and pestilence always leads to death; and as we shall soon see, in the future – pestilence will lead to humans actually being consumed by wild beasts! So says God (Ezekiel 14:14-16, 21, 5:17, / Leviticus 26:22 / Numbers 21:6)!!! www.onug.us

Seven Seals, Four Horsemen, Seven Trumpets, Three Woes, Seven Bowls, and Three Flying Angels: These are The Judgment Of God (Understanding and Living According To The Word of God) through either Blessings or Cursing (Ezekiel 14:22)!!!

  1. False Religion: The First Seal – A White Horse (a bow, a crown, to conquer and / or to convert many).
  2. War: The Second Seal – A Red Horse (power to take peace from the earth, a great sword to murder many).
  3. Famine: The Third Seal – A Black Horse (disparity and irregularity in famines: food scarcity and rationing in one area, while other foods are abundantly found elsewhere).
  4. Pestilence and Death: The Forth Seal – A Pale Horse (“Hell” or hades, meaning the grave follows him; disease and sickness become rampant and lethal; wild animals attack and kill humans). God gives the first four seals Power to kill one-fourth of the earth’s entire population!

Revelation 6:9-17, 7:1-17, 8:1-5

  1. The Martyrdom of the Saints: The Fifth Seal (The True Church of God, which preaches the Word of God, and has the Testimony of Jesus’ Gospel Message; these are all those from throughout time, who will come up in the First Resurrection in white robes, but have not been delivered by God, or gone to the place of safety; these must be killed by Satan’s government up until the time of and during the Great Tribulation). The Fifth Seal overlaps the Sixth Seal, and ends with the deaths of God’s Two Witnesses (the last two Saints to die). www.onug.us
  2. A Great Earthquake, A Black Sun, and A Blood Moon - The Sixth Seal (Stars of heaven fall, mountains and islands disappear, men try to hide in the earth from God and the Wrath of Jesus).
  3. Silence in Heaven for Half an Hour – The Seventh Seal (A darkened sun, and a moon that gives no light ends the Seventh Seal at the Seventh Trumpet; and contrasts with the Sixth Seal’s initial heavenly indicators! Seven Angels assemble with the Seven Trumpets, another angel with the golden censer adds much incense to the prayers of the Saints – then filling it with fire from the Altar, hurls it to the earth; then there are voices, thunder, lightning, and another earthquakes while the seven angels prepare themselves to sound). www.onug.us

Revelation 8:6-13

The First Trumpet (Hail and Fire mingled with Blood are cast upon the earth. One Third of the trees are burnt up and all green grass)!!!

The Second Trumpet (A great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea. One Third of the all the seas become blood, one third of all sea life is killed, one third of the world’s ships are also destroyed)!!!

The Third Trumpet (A great star, called Wormwood, burning like a lamp falls from heaven causing one third of all rivers and all fresh water sources to become bitter, and many who drink this water will die)!!!

The Fourth Trumpet (One Third of the sun, the moon, and the stars are darkened, so that the daytime is dark for four hours of daylight each day, and the night sky shines no light from any stars or the moon, for four hours each night. An angel flies through the sky, announcing the three Woes or Trumpets to come)!!! www.onug.us

Revelation 9:1-21

The Fifth Trumpet – The First Woe (Satan is cast out of heaven a second time with his demons, and allowed to release some of the demons who have been bound in Tartarus or the bottomless pit since the angelic rebellion; the sun and air are darkened by the smoke (demons?) that comes out of the pit, locusts (helicopters with chemical or biological weapons?) come out of the smoke (influenced by the demons?) – not to eat grass or trees (as normal locusts would) – but to hurt humans who do not keep the Holy Days of God, and to sting men like a scorpion stings – to inflict such excruciating pain upon men for five months, that they will seek death, but will not find it)!!!

This is one of two great demonic assemblies that the observance of Halloween really celebrates!!!

          

To learn more about why the world today really celebrates Halloween, read our Bible Studies and watch our video:

What Does Jesus Christ Say About You And Your Children Observing Halloween?

Have You Ever Seen A Ghost?

VIDEO: The Truth About Halloween

The Sixth Trumpet – The Second Woe (Four terrible and mighty demons which are “bound” in the Euphrates river since the angelic rebellion, are released for a year, and a month, and a day, and an hour; they influence an army of 200 million men to go about and kill one third of the population left on earth by fire, smoke, and brimstone which issued out of their mouths (missiles, artillery, bombs?); and those survivors, not killed by these plagues from God, repented not of their works. God’s Two Witnesses will complete their ministry during the Great Tribulation, and lie dead in the city streets for three and a half days. Their resurrection, back to physical flesh and blood life (Revelation 11:11), and another great earthquake which levels a tenth of the city, and kills 7,000 people that happens within the same hour that the Two witnesses come back to life; this will be enough to scare the remnant of the city into Glorifying God)!!! www.onug.us

Revelation 10:1-4

The Seven Thunders (A Mighty Angel of God comes down from Heaven, clothed with a cloud, a rainbow upon his head, his face shining like the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire. He has a little book, open in his hand; his right foot upon the sea and his left foot upon the earth… then the Seven Thunders uttered their voices! But God tells John NOT to write those things he was told by the seven thunders. Instead John is to preach The Gospel before many people, nations, tongues, and kings!).

The Sixth Trumpet – The Second Woe (continued) Revelation 10:5-11, 11:1-14

Revelation 11:15-19

The Seventh Trumpet – The Third Woe (The kingdoms of this world become the Kingdoms of our LORD, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever! This can only happen after Satan and his demons are banished in the bottomless pit on the Day of Atonement and the Beast and False Prophet are thrown into the lake of fire. The First Resurrection must occur at the beginning of the Seventh or last Trumpet (as the Saints ALL rise together! Hebrews 11:39-40 / 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 / 1 Corinthians 15:51-58). The Two Witnesses are given physical life at the end of the Sixth Trumpet, for an hour (just like many who were raised back to physical life in the Bible; this is not the first resurrection!); then the Seventh Trumpet or Third Woe follows quickly (Revelation 11:14). www.onug.us

Revelation 11:15-19,

The Progression of the Seventh Trumpet:

The First Resurrection happens (Revelation 5:9-10, 10:7, 14:1-5, 20:4 & 6). The dead in Christ rise and prepare to reign!

There are voices in heaven, thunder, lightning, another earthquake, and Great Hail (seven bowls)!!!

The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath Begin (Revelation 16:1-21):

  • Noisome and grievous sore upon those who have the mark or sign of the beast and worship his image.
  • Sea becomes as the blood of a dead man killing all sea life.
  • All rivers and fountains become blood
  • Sun scorches men with fire and great heat so they blaspheme God and repent not
  • Darkness and pain poured upon the seat of the beast and his kingdom making them chew their tongues
  • Euphrates dries up to prepare the way of the kings of the east to invade. Three frog-like demons come out from Satan, the beast, and the false prophet and gather the world’s armies at the valley of Armageddon, to the battle of that great day of God (occurs on the Day of Atonement).
  • A Great Voice from God’s Throne: “It is Done!”, voices in heaven, thunder, lightning, and the greatest of all earthquakes ever! City divided into three parts, cities of all nations fall, every island sinks, every mountain is leveled; an exceedingly great plague of Great Hail, each the weight of a talent [Ancient Israel adopted the Babylonian talent (30.3 kilograms or 67 lbs.). but later revised the mass into the Heavy Common Talent which was used in New Testament times (58.9 kilograms or 130 lbs)]!!! www.onug.us

The armies of the earth, 200 million, come to make war with Jesus Christ and His Saints (Revelation 11:18 / Zechariah 14:1-5, 12-15).

Satan and his demons are put into the bottomless pit for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-3)!!!

The Three Angels fly with their three messages (Revelation 14:6-12); Notice WHEN This Happens In God’s Timeline!!! www.onug.us

  1. “Fear God, and give Glory to Him; for the hour of His Judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”
  2. “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”
  3. “If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the Wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb, and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

We will be learning more about The Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse, in our upcoming Bible Studies! So Stay Tuned! :o)

God has not yet called this earth to acknowledge Him, His Authority in the affairs of men, or His Exceedingly Great Glory, Power, and Majesty! But He very soon will! There is coming a Terrible Time, when ALL humans who live upon the earth, will Rejoice at the Coming of Jesus Christ; or they will Blaspheme and Curse God and Die a very, very terrible death!!! That is WHY YOU and I must learn Christ’s WARNING; then we MUST preach it – WORLDWIDE (Matthew 28:18-20 / Galatians 1:8-9)!!! www.onug.us

Now Let’s Get Back To Jesus’ Olivet Prophecy!

Question: Remembering the Fifth Seal (Revelation 6:9-11), what did Jesus say about this time of religious persecution and martyrdom (Mathew 24:9 / Luke 21:12-19)? We must understand that the principle of duality which applies to many Biblical prophecies. There is a former, typical fulfillment; then later, a final, antitypical fulfillment. The religious persecution and martyrdom spoken of in Matthew and Luke did actually occur, in the typical or preliminary sense, in the nation of Judah when the Roman armies crucified tens of thousands of Jews about A.D. 70!!! Millions more from various nationalities were also tortured and killed by the great false church during the Middle Ages (Revelation 17:6, 18:24)!!! Many of these were True Christians according to the real Biblical definition of a Follower of Christ (Justified and Sanctified: 52/7)!!! Remember a Foolish Virgin can fall away and die, at any point in history; not just in the last days! Be Warned!!! www.onug.us

Jesus said more Christians would be martyred at the end time; John said the same thing in Revelation 6:11!!! This future martyrdom, of which the earlier martyrdoms were only “a type”; will occur at the time to which John, the inspired writer of the book of Revelation, was carried forward in vision, to just prior to the Day of The LORD!!!

Question: What will happen to Judah and Jerusalem just before Christ returns (Luke 21:20-24)? The modern English of the Moffatt translation may be a bit easier to understand here: "For sore anguish will come upon the land and Wrath on this people!" Let’s also visit the parallel account in Matthew 24:15-20. Do you see God showing you a time of great tribulation coming upon the whole world (Matthew 24:21)? What would happen if Jesus did not return and intervene in the affairs of men (Matthew 24:22)? Do you see how God is shortly going to make it impossible for anyone NOT to believe in God? They will either Praise Him or Curse Him as these days approach! And only those who are in the Body of Christ will be spared – only those who, within the body, are following Christ’s instructions (Luke 21:34-38). Let Him that readeth UNDERSTAND!!! www.onug.us

Question: Who will be responsible for inspiring this persecution, warfare, and man's inhumanity to his fellow man during this soon coming “terrible time of trouble” (Revelation 12:12)? Why will he be so wrathful (Notice the last part of verse 12)? This period of great worldwide tribulation is Satan's wrath! It will be unleashed upon God's Church, Jacob (the descendants of ancient Israel) and upon the whole world, because the devil will know he has but a short time to work deception, destruction and death before being imprisoned for a thousand (Revelation 20:1-3)! www.onug.us

Question: What is God’s Promise to His end-times Church, to those who are faithfully keeping His Word, and doing His Work (Revelation 3:7-10)? It is important to note that these promises of protection are for the Philadelphia era of God's Church, which God has raised up in the last days. Define Philadelphia (John 14:15, 23-31)? Even though God's Church is relatively small, Jesus has opened, and will continue to open, the powerful "doors" of radio, television, the internet, the smartphone, the printing press, and personal evangelism to His Church - that it may preach and publish His Gospel of the Kingdom of God as a warning, and as a witness to the world (Matthew 4:23, 12:41, 24:14 / Mark 13:10). And for faithfully obeying His Word and doing His works, Christ promises to spare His servants from the "hour of temptation" — the terrible wrath of Satan!

We have covered much material today in this Bible Study! Review and study it again, and again, throughout this coming week! Next week we will continue our Study of Christ’s Olivet Prophecy, and go into even deeper detail of the things, and events, and the times which Jesus gave us to KNOW about BEFORE they happen!!! www.onug.us

As any wise and loving father punishes his children for their own good when they refuse to respond to kind and loving verbal admonition; likewise, an ALL-LOVING, ALL-WISE GOD will finally plead with his rebellious kids in the only language humanity will be able to understand! God is going to punish this world with Righteous Judgments; with plagues so terrible many will at last recognize God is dealing specifically with them!!! Many will then heed, REPENT, and turn from their wicked ways! They will at last, SEEK GOD and His Perfect Law of LIBERTY and LOVE!!! This coming period of Divine Punishment is described in more than 30 different prophecies, in both the Old and New Testaments, as the “Day of the Lord”, or The Second Coming of Jesus Christ, and then we will finally have World Peace at last!!! www.onug.us

We are honored that you joined us today, in the Study of God’s Word! We hope that you will join us again next week, and that you will continue to share what you have learned here, with others – at home, at work, and in your neighborhood (Matthew 28:18-20 / Mark 16:15-20)! May our Great God, Bless you and keep you, until then – in Jesus’ Name!!!

God is calling YOU to be a follower of Jesus Christ, and the first century church, can you hear His Voice (1 John 2:6 / Matthew 11:29)? The Sabbath and Holy Days show us God’s Plan. When we keep these Holy Days we become the very Voice of God to this fallen world; we are in effect saying, by our actions on each Feast Day, “Come LORD Jesus, Come” (Revelation 22:12, 17, 20-21)!!! We are actually confessing Christ before men (Matthew 10:32-33)!

The faithful and obedient in Christ will always keep God’s True Holy Days and Sabbath; and will reject the pagan lies and substitutions of God’s TRUTH (Revelation 22:11-15)! God’s Holy Days are meant for Christians to ENJOY! They truly are FEAST DAYS, meant to be enjoyed by God’s elect everywhere, throughout time, FOREVER!!!

If you have never faithfully kept God’s seventh day Sabbath holy or God’s Holy Days, the way Jesus Christ did – in the flesh, and in the fellowship of other followers of the Son of Man; we invite you to obediently enter into God’s rest today, and to keep the Feasts of the LORD (Hebrews 4:1-11 / Leviticus 23:1-44)! Contact us to find out where we fellowship and worship God, in your area, on His Sabbath Days (Exodus 31:12-18). We would love to hear from you and help get you started! :o)

Join us on-line every Sabbath and Holy Day at www.onug.us ! You can download our Bible Studies, or join us on facebook and “listen in” to our webinar Bible Study each week!

”But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:26-30).

Christians must learn to read the Bible, interpret the scriptures according to Biblical principles (Isaiah 28:9-10, / Matthew 13:52), and begin to apply the precepts they learn in their walk with God. Individual study is essential; coupled with fellowship times of group study, worship, and discussions of personal insights and observations.

We strive, each Saturday, to foster an open and welcoming atmosphere where Spirit led confirmation, clarification, questions, and correction can be made in the fellowship of other students of God’s Word.

One Nation Under God (www.onug.us) is working to unify the body of Christ in the worship of God the Father, in the way Jesus showed us to - in Spirit and in Truth! We strive to promote rediscovery of American History, and renew in current generations the Vision and the Covenant of our Founding Fathers.

“And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease… And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.  Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat”                     – Jesus Christ (Matthew 10:1, 7-10).
