The GOOD news
Our Philadelphia era of God’s Church (Revelation 3:7-13) has the PROMISE of the living Christ that we shall escape the soon coming GREAT TRIBULATION with TROUBLES in the world such as never happened before or will again (Revelation 3:10; 12:14).
But the prophet Daniel warns us. “And at that time [of the end Daniel 12:1] shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and THERE SHALL BE A TIME OF TROUBLE, such as never was since there was a nation even to this time…” (See also Matthew 24:21-22.)
“Many shall be purified, any made white,and tried…” (verse 10). There are plenty of warnings of this same time of trial and testing in the New Testament. Brethren, COME TO REAIZE WE are in THAT TIME.
But our GOD is on His throne. And the living HEAD of this Church is also ON THAT THRONE.
When frightening times of trying and testing come – and they have been coming tenfold recently – I have not the ability to outwit Satan – my refuge and deliverance is in the LIVING CHRIST! Not only is HE there on His Father’s throne, but the archangel Michael is also STANDING UP AGAINST SATAN FOR US.
Satan is now at the white-hot HEAT OF WRATH, knowing he has but a short time (Revelation 12:12). We are at the time when “there was WAR IN HEAVEN: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon [Satan]; and the dragon fought and his angels [demons], and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more it heaven.” (Revelation 12:7-8).
CHRIST will prevail
Christ warns us, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may, devour.” He IS seeking to devour YOU. “But”, God continues “whom resist STEDFAST IN THE FAITH” (I Peter 5:8-9).
We are now in the LAST DAYS – when “perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud… lovers of pleasures more than of God.”
