The danger of second chance
Text: Reve. 13; phil. 2-4; Heb. 12;
Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of `our’ faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb. 12:1,2;
Afterward talk about this
If according to Revelation 13, the Antichrist which is going to strive through peace, is not different from today false Prophet who convince the world through the spoken word. What will be the hope of those who missed the rapture because they don’t know the truth.
Things to do before the next time
Go to your unsave friend and relative tell them about the danger of second chance, convince them with Revelation 13. Let us know their their respond.
Meditate on this verses: Revelation 13;
Read the account of Saul failure to do the Lord command and Esau selling of his birth right and explain what danger face believer if they mixed the rapture or what they have to lose if they take the hard way.
In Revelation 13, the woman clothed with the moon and the Sun is an enigma this enigma reveal the reason for the great tribulation and satan purpose for persecuting even when he know that his time is short and his purpose defeated, in the previous study we have been able to specified the meaning of the enigma from Joseph dream in Gensis 37:9,10; “And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?“ Considering the dream the sun was Israel and the moon was the woman in the sense it begin from Genesis which mean the seed of a woman where Jesus get one his name from. This moon is clearly Sarah the mother of the Israel and the eleven stars the tribe of Israel, for those who might think this Idiom is for the Church note that the church did not give birth to the Massiah but Israel did, so now we know the Enigma now let consider the interpretation the beast hated the woman, this is very true for Israel who have suffered the wrath of the devil from onset more than any nation on earth since God chose them, the beast seek to devour the child as soon as it is born this symbolize Devil seek to kill Baby Jesus even the by unleashing presecution on them also persecuting and killing the Apostle of Christ, seeking to killed the Church the body of Christ, and we notice that the chilld was cut up to God and to his throne, many may mistake this for the ascension when Christ raise it was slow till the cloud receive him they all see him going up but this is been cut up is an Idiom for the Church, the Rapture of the Saint when the Church is caught up to God, the anger of the beast increase when the church was cut up to God, so the Devil blame Israel for given birth to the Church, through out the Bible water symbolizes the unrest of Nation, the Bible said “the wickerd are like trouble sea that can not rest” Satan uses nation to attack Israel for given birth to Christ, then the earth help Israel, that is Moab, Edom and Ammon which will be their cities of refuge, when he could not destroy Israel he went to make war with the rest of the saint who could not make heaven due to personal sin. The Bible said this will lead to great tribulation such has never been since there was a nation or ever shall be, the people,the Beast fought against are those who kept the testimony of Jesus Christ and would not compromise despite the torture or bodily torment but remember these also are saint but they are tribulation saint, they will still be save but not like rapture saint but are save like refugee and these are no longer King and priest of God and therefore will not reign as kings with the rapture saint but they will be their subject and serve him day and night in his temple, they will be save like the nation Israel through their blood they will enter into rest. This are the ones who cry for lost opportunity but Christ will wipe every tears off their eyes.
The risk of second chance is grivious in the sense that the door of Grace may close any time because you don’t know God Calendar, there is risk of yielding to bodily pain or fear of death which will be one of the strategy of Satan, danger of death before accepting the messiah, danger of losing heaven or your heavenly mansion.
Spend a minute to change the world
pray for yourself and the entire christian race that they should make the mistake of second chance.
