I have been spending time in the Book of Revelation. The Book has a Promise from God to everyone who takes the time to read it. It is the only Book of the Bible with a Blessing stated clearly to the reader…” Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.”

This Book is rich in majesty and drama, for it is the Revealing, the REVELATION of Jesus as the King of Kings, the Almighty God, and the Sovereign King who reigns over Angels and Men and the Universe that He created. The King of All who comes back to finally take what is rightfully HIS…this Earth.

There have been moments in time when Heaven and Earth have been joined for the specific purposes of God. The two that stand out in my mind are the Birth of Jesus when Star light, Moon light, Angel light and Candle light brought Heaven and Earth together as ONE.

The other moment in time was the death of the God / Man, Emanuel (God With Us), the Messiah of Israel, The Christ …the Son of the Living God…on the Cross outside the City of God…Jerusalem.

The sky grew dark like night and the light from Heaven grew dim, unable to reach the Earth for 6 hours. In the darkness the earth was separated from Heavens light. But then in the morning of the 3rd day, the one who was born to be the light of the world rose from the dead and left an empty tomb with an open door for all to see. Jesus has Risen from the Dead…Yes…Risen indeed.

Death could not hold Him. He walked forth from the darkness of the tomb into the light bringing Joy in the morning to all who believed in Him. The promised Redeemer was alive, the first of those to be risen from the dead. The fact that HE lives means you will too if you have chosen to Follow Him.

Now mankind could put their HOPE in the Historical TRUTH of His Resurrection and gain FAITH in the HOLY One of Israel… the God/Man who can Raise the DEAD to a new LIFE.

The Book of Revelation shuts the door to the story of the OLD World Sacrificial System and Opens the Door to the Eternally unfolding story of the ONE TRUE GOD and HIS Love for HIS Creatures and Creation throughout all of Eternity. Many of Gods promises to mankind unfold and come to their conclusion in the Book of Revelation including the final destruction of evil forever. But the greatest promise of GOD would be to His Son JESUS reclaiming the TITLE DEED to the EARTH that is RIGHTFULLY HIS.

IF you have BIBLICAL WISDOM and DISCERNMENT; then you need to Remember Daily, the phrase of the Apostle John… “for the TIME IS NEAR”.

The SEAL has been Broken to the Prophetic Checklist:

All areas of prophecy combine in the united testimony, that history, His- Story, is preparing our generation for the end of the age.

I have compiled a prophecy checklist in 3 areas, the Church, the Nations and Israel. The list is in Prophetic Chronological order. This list would make a great bible study for each of you, by matching up the list with its scripture references. They represent road signs that mark the timing of His coming.

A Prophetic Checklist for the Church:
1. The rise of world Communism made possible the worldwide
spread of atheism.
2. Liberalism undermines the spiritual vitality of the church in Europe
and eventually in America.
3. The movement toward a super-church begins with the ecumenical
4. Apostasy and open denial of biblical truth is evident in the church.
5. Moral chaos becomes more and more evident because of the
complete departure from Christian morality.
6. The sweep of Spirit-ism, the Occult and the belief in Demons.
7. Jerusalem becomes a center of religious controversy for Arabs
and Christians, while Jews of the world plan to make the city an
active Center for Judaism.

A Prophetic Checklist for the Nations:
1. The establishment of the United Nations began a serious first step
toward world government.
2. The rebuilding of Europe after World War 11 made possible its
future role in a renewal of the Roman Empire.
3. Israel is reestablished as a nation.
4. Russia rose to world power and becomes the ally of the Arab
5. The Common Market and World Bank show a need for some
international regulation of the world economy.
6. Red China rose to world power and developed the capacity to field
an army of 200,000,000 as predicted in prophecy.
7.The Middle East becomes the most significant trouble spot in the

A Prophetic Checklist for Israel:
1. The intense suffering and persecution of Jews throughout the world
lead to pressure for a national home in Israel, after the
2. Jews return to Israel, and Israel is reestablished as a nation
in 1948.
3. The infant nation survives against overwhelming odds, (800,000
Jews against 180 million Arabs).
4. Russia emerges as an important enemy of Israel, but the United
States comes to the aid of Israel. (God promises to bless those
who bless Israel).
5. Israel’s heroic survival and growing strength make it an established
Nation recognized throughout the world.
6. Israel’s military accomplishments become over shadowed by the
Arab’s ability to wage a diplomatic war by controlling much of the
world’s oil.
7. The increasing isolation of the United States and Russia from the
Middle East makes it more and more difficult for Israel to negotiate
an acceptable peace settlement.

The Church, The Nations and Israel together form an intricately woven pattern of events. Israel is Gods prophetic time clock. Time stopped in 70 AD when the temple was destroyed by the Romans. Currently we are on hold, yet the Lord through prophecy has given us the ability to discern the times and the seasons before His Soon Return.
