Breaking Prophecy News; Worthy is the Lamb! Part 3 (The Prophet Daniel’s Report #542)

PROPHECY HEADLINES: Israel alarmed as Iran and world powers explore nuclear compromises | Arabs say strikes in Yemen will continue until rebels surrender | Putin tells Arab League he supports state for Palestine with capital in East Jerusalem | Nasrallah rages against Saudi airstrikes in Yemen; Says Israel is the enemy | Attacks against Christians in India increase by 55% since Modi election

The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:2: “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”

PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “Worthy is the Lamb!” (Part 3) from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future”.

Hearing the announcement that the “Lion from the tribe of Judah” can open the book, John brushes his tears aside and turns to see the Deliverer. Bruce Metzger writes, “What follows is altogether unexpected. John looked to see the Lion, the king of beasts. and instead he sees a Lamb with the marks of slaughter upon it!”

The symbolism of the lamb emphasizes the ultimate triumph of the sacrificial death of Christ. The symbol of the lamb appears twenty-eight times in the Revelation. His death is the only atonement for sins that God the Father will accept. The issue is not whether your religion satisfies you, but whether it satisfies God! And God is only satisfied with the blood atonement of Jesus Christ. His Son. That sacrifice alone can pay the sinner’s debt, satisfy the demands of divine justice, and set the sinner free.

The prophetic passage of Scripture we are looking at today is Deuteronomy 30:9-10 which reads: “And the Lord thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the Lord will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.”

Our second coming quote for today is from John Darby. He said: “Nothing is more prominently brought forward in the New Testament than the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “Worthy is the Lamb!” (Part 2) from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future”.

Robert Thomas points out that four new scenes of the vision currently in progress are introduced by the phrase “and I saw”. This adds to the continuous sense of movement one experiences while reading the Revelation. Thomas also observes, “The throne room described in chapter 4 functions as the setting of these scenes, the first of which introduces a scroll whose contents comprise essentially the remainder of the Apocalypse.”

The scroll itself is described as having been written on the inside (“within”) and on the back. Its description is very similar to that of an ancient will or testament This would have been the general nature of wills, contracts and official documents of John’s time. Commentators vary in their opinions regarding the scroll. Some see it as the gospel, new covenant, book of life, decrees of God, or plan of redemption. Since the opening of the seals enacts the judgments of God on earth in order to bring about the return of Christ as King of the earth, it seems best to view the scroll as the title deed or divine contract to the world. As such, the scroll certainly contains the eternal decrees of God and expresses His divine will and counsel.

Saudi Arabia, Gulf allies launch airstrikes in Yemen (Second Coming Watch Update #609)

1. Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies launched air strikes in Yemen against rebel fighters who have tightened their grip on the southern city of Aden where the country’s president had taken refuge.

2. U.S.-led coalition warplanes launched their first airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Tikrit on Wednesday, coming off the sidelines to aid Iraqi forces fighting alongside Iranian-backed militia on the ground.

3. One of the most important reasons why the U.S. is trying to conclude a nuclear deal with Iran is to prevent an Iranian bomb from triggering a nuclear race in the Middle East.

4. A Christian pastor who defended local churches when the Chinese authorities removed church crosses was sentenced to one year in prison.

The prophetic passage of Scripture we are looking at today is Deuteronomy 29:9-13 which reads: “Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do. Ye stand this day all of you before the Lord your God… That thou shouldest enter into covenant with the Lord thy God, and into his oath, which the Lord thy God maketh with thee this day: That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself, and that he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.”

Our second coming quote for today is from John Piper. He said: “The center of Christianity is the coming of the Son of God into the world as a real man to destroy the works of the devil and create a new people for His own glory. The very heart of our faith is that He did this by obeying the law of God, dying for the sins of His people, rising victorious over death, ascending to God’s right hand with all His enemies under his feet. The second coming of Christ is the completion of His saving work. If you take it away, the whole fabric of His saving work unravels.”

The Bible says in James 5:7: “Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.”

PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “Worthy is the Lamb!” (Part 1) from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future”.

Jesus Christ is again the central figure in Revelation chapter 5. He appears suddenly and dramatically at the center stage of heaven; He comes to claim His rightful inheritance from His Father’s hand. He is the heir of the line of Jewish royalty — the “Root of David.” He comes with divine authority to receive the title deed to the world and to enact the eternal purposes of God Almighty.

He explodes into the courtroom of heaven as the Lamb of God. Here the emphasis is upon His atonement for our sins. The symbolism is that of the Old Testament lamb slain for the sins of mankind. It is the same terminology John the Baptist used when he first saw the Messiah and proclaimed: “Behold, the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”

Breaking Prophecy News; God is Still on the Throne, Part 6 (The Prophet Daniel’s Report #539)

PROPHECY HEADLINES: ‘Death to America’: Iran’s supreme leader criticizes America amid nuclear talks | Russia threatens nuclear attack if Denmark joins NATO’s anti-missile shield | 5.3 magnitude earthquake shakes central Mexico | N. Korea says it is ready to use nuclear missiles against U.S. | Petraeus says Iran, not ISIS, is greates threat to Mideast stability

The Bible says in Titus 2:13-14: “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”

PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “God is Still on the Throne” (Part 6) from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future”.

The fact that the four beasts are described as being “full of eyes” (or “lights”) indicates their divine knowledge and wisdom. They have access to the omniscient (“all-knowing”) wisdom of God to carry out His commands and His Judgments. The reader is assured that all of heaven operates under the infinite wisdom of God. His wisdom and grace shall indeed prevail. G.B. Caird writes, “There will be no triumph of God’s sovereignty at the expense of His mercy.”

The declaration, “Holy, holy, holy,” recognizes the triune nature of God. Just as Isaiah the prophet heard this declaration in the throne room of heaven, so John the apostle hears it as well. This is but one of the numerous interconnections of the divine revelation of Old and New Testament Scripture, proving that the symbols of the Apocalypse are drawn from the biblical record.
