PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “Can It Get Any Worse? (Part 4)” from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future.”
Seven Thunders (Continued…)
John was told to “seal up” the utterances of the seven thunders and “do not write them”. Any attempt to guess their meaning is presumptuous and unjustified. Just as Daniel was told to seal up his prophecies until the “end time,” so we must wait on God’s timing to reveal the seven thunders in the future. This entire experience is similar to that of the apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:4, where he is commanded not to tell all that he heard in heaven.
OCCUPY TILL I COME: We are continuing our journey through the book, “Coming Events and Present Duties,” by J.C. Ryle. This section is titled, “Watch” (Part 20) based on the parable of the foolish and wise virgins in Matthew 25:1-13. J.C. Ryle writes:
I suspect there is a vague notion floating in men’s minds that the present order of things will not end quite so suddenly. I suspect men cling to the idea that there will be a time when all will know the day of the Lord is near; a time when all will be able to cleanse their consciences, make out their wedding garments, shake off their earthly business, and prepare to meet their God. If any reader of this address has got such a notion into his head, I charge him to give it up forever! If anything is clear in unfulfilled prophecy, this one fact seems clear — that the Lord’s coming will be sudden, and take men by surprise.
