Biblical Numerology: NUMBER SEVEN – Part 14

We are standing on the threshold of the Crisis of the Ages!

The first angel’s message: 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. Revelation 14: 6, 7, K.J.V.

Ellen G. White wrote in Patriarchs and Prophets, pp. 275-277:

    “There is coming rapidly and surely an almost universal guilt upon the inhabitants of the cities [like Sodom, Gomorrah, Nineveh, etc. in OT times] because of the steady increase of determined wickedness. The corruption that prevails is beyond the power of the human pen to describe. Everyday brings fresh revelations of strife, bribery, and fraud; everyday brings its heart-sickening record of violence and lawlessness, of indifference to human suffering, of brutal, fiendish destruction of human life. Every day testifies to the increase of insanity, murder, and suicide.   Read more

The Dark Ages Shortened for the Elect’s Sake

The Dark Ages Shortened for the Elect’s Sake  

   

    See Matthew 24: 21, 22  regarding “the great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.”

What is really happening to planet Earth, right now? Our loudly-touted, far-advanced science-and technology achievements seem unable to stay in front of all the record-breaking catastrophes forming and overlapping each, leaving countless victims simply stunned and tongue-tied except for guttural screams or other-worldly groans: “Lord, have mercy!” Many hold to the putative view that “global warming” is to blame— Read more

THYATIRA: The Church’s Age of Adversity: The Dark Ages  

   

   18  And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These things saith the Son of God, who hath His eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet like fine brass 19  I know thy works and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the  last to be more than the first.  Revelation 2: 18, 19, K.J.V.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

All great alterations in human affairs are produced by compromise.

SYDNEY SMITH, Catholic Question

————————————

Thyatira. “The origin and meaning of this name is uncertain. Some have suggested that Thyatira means “Sweet savor of labor,’ perhaps on the basis of the ‘works’ of the church set forth in v. 19.” . . . As applied to Christian history, the message to Thyatira is particularly appropriate to the experience of the church during the Dark Ages [538- 1798, A.D. of 1,260 years]. Read more

PERGAMOS: The Church’s Age of Popularity  

   

   12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write: These things saith He which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 13  I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and holdest fast My name, and hast not denied thy faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.”  Revelation 2: 12, 13, K.J.V.

Footnotes, An Exhaustive E. G. White Commentary on Revelation, Vol. 2, pp. 545, 546:

     “Pergamos.’  Or, Pergamumum. This city had been the capital of the Roman province of Asia for two centuries after its last king Attalus III, bequeathed it, together with the kingdom of Pergamum, to Rome in 133 B.C. (see p. 95). Since the early 3rd century B.C., the city of Pergamum had been a chief center of cultural and intellectual life of the Hellenistic period.  Although by John’s time Ephesus was beginning to supersede it as the leading city of Asia, Pergamum continued to retain much of its former importance. The two cities long contended for this honor. . . . .

EPHESUS: THE FIRST CONDITION OF THE CHURCH

      To the angel of the church of Ephesus write:  ‘These things s says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven of the seven golden lamp stands (candlesticks, K.J.V).” Revelation 2: 1, N.K.J.V.

 

Let’s start from the very beginning of New Testament church history from the resurrection of Christ, followed fifty days after by the promised outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon 120 prepared disciples (including Mary, the mother of Jesus, at an upper room at Jerusalem—last mention  of her in the Bible) to the close of the first century, or the death of the last apostle, john the beloved, writer of the “big” gospel epistle and the three “little epistles” with his name, and the Revelation, of course.
