World events revolve around one thing….a throne.
The Throne of David.
Satan wants to put his man on that throne.
Fallen man doesn’t care who sits upon the throne as long as it’s not Jesus Christ.
It is a spiritual battle of wills that manifests in the world as war.
Similar battles were fought before the Son of David’s first coming. Assyria (modern Iran) and Babylon (modern Iraq) were center stage. Governments and nations shifted. Boundaries and influence changed. The Jews were released to their homeland. They rebuilt their temple. Antiochus Epiphanes desecrated the rebuilt temple. Messiah came.
Events that used to take hundreds of years….now only take decades.
What would have taken 300 to 400 years in the past…now only takes 30 or 40 years.
Soon nations will rise and fall in a day. What used to take a decade will take a year.
Right now Christ Jesus is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
But one day He will come to claim the throne of David and will again choose Jerusalem.
“My servant David will be king over them, and they will all have one shepherd; and they will walk in My ordinances and keep My statutes and observe them. 25 They will live on the land that I gave to Jacob My servant, in which your fathers lived; and they will live on it, they, and their sons and their sons’ sons, forever; and David My servant will be their prince forever. 26 I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever. 27 My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people. 28 And the nations will know that I am the LORD who sanctifies Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.” Ezekial 37:24-28
The LORD will possess Judah as His portion in the holy land, and will again choose Jerusalem. Zech 2:12
All that is happening in the world is an attempt to prevent that.
Did you know that there is an attempt to prevent that in the Church also?
Jesus Christ has made an offer to the overcomers.
“ He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 3:21
Just as Jesus sat down at the right hand of the throne of God….He makes an offer to those who overcome to join Him on His throne. Today He rules from the Fathers throne. One day He will leave the the Father’s throne and return to rule from David’s throne. We are called to rule with Him.
The spirit of antichrist wants to stop this. This spirit uses anti-semitism, pride, and philosophy. This spirit ridicules and mocks a literal and systematic study of the Word of God. There are many in the church who say, “Where is the promise of His coming?” 2 Peter 3:4
There is a grand delusion that’s creating an illusion that’s leading to a great denial…..in the world and in the church.
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. 2 Timothy 4:3
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. 2 Corinthians 11:13
This is happening now.
