3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
4 Andwhenthe seventhundershad utteredtheirvoices, I was aboutto write: andI hearda voicefromheavensayingunto me, Seal upthose things whichthe seventhundersuttered, andwritethemnot.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 Andswarebyhim that livethforeverand ever, whocreatedheaven, andthe things that therein are, andthe earth, andthe things that therein are, andthe sea, andthe things which are therein, thatthere should betimenolonger:
7 Butinthe daysof the voiceof the seventhangel, whenhe shall beginto sound, the mysteryof Godshould be finished, ashe hath declaredto hisservantsthe prophets.
Revelation 10 is a picture of the consummation... The End (Revelation 10:7/Daniel 9:27). This mighty angel (Messenger) is Jesus. He is clothed with a cloud (a cloud is water - Truth/Righteousness), a rainbow upon His head (rainbow = promise/fulfilling that which He has declared), face as the sun (sun - He is The Light... not reflected light as per the moon), feet as pillars of fire (He is the all standing judge of judgment - purging those He has saved/condemning the unsaved to destruction).
Verse 2 shows He will put all of Creation under subjection on the final hour. Covering both the dry land and the sea. We see an example of this in the Book of Hebrews:
Hebrews 2:5-9 Forunto the angelshath henotput in subjectionthe worldto come, whereofwe speak. 6 Butonein a certain placetestified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 8 Thou hast put all things in subjectionunderhisfeet. Forinthat he putallin subjection underhim, he leftnothing that is notput underhim. Butnowwe seenot yetall thingsput underhim. 9 Butwe seeJesus, whowas madea littlelowerthanthe angelsforthe sufferingof death, crownedwith gloryandhonour; thatheby the graceof Godshould tastedeathforevery man.
Verse 4 is different than other prophetic scripture concerning these End Times. Not only does the Lord demand that what is declared is to be sealed up but also that it shall not even be written down. But what specific event is contained within this "little book"? There are a few other verses in Matthew & Mark and 2 Peter that describe this exact moment contained within this "little book"...
Matthew 24:35-36Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Mark 13:31-33Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
2 Peter 3:10-13 Butthe dayof the Lordwill comeasa thiefinthe night; inthe whichthe heavensshall pass awaywith a great noise, andthe elementsshall meltwith fervent heat, the earthalsoandthe worksthat are thereinshall be burned up. 11 Seeing thenthat allthese thingsshall be dissolved, what mannerof persons oughtyeto beinall holyconversationandgodliness, 12 Looking forandhastingunto the comingof the dayof God, whereinthe heavensbeing on fireshall be dissolved, andthe elementsshall meltwith fervent heat? 13 Neverthelesswe, according tohispromise, look fornewheavensanda newearth, whereindwellethrighteousness.
Matthew & Mark and 2 Peter 3 show us a small wealth of information. It can be summed up in one sentence.
According to the Lord's promise, "but my words shall not pass away" & "according to his promise" (the rainbow upon His head), no man, angel nor Satan himself knows the time of the very End when the Rapture occurs and heaven and earth shall pass away with fervent heat.
Verse 6 & 7 emphasize "thatthere should betimenolonger" as "the mysteryof Godshould be finished, ashe hath declaredto hisservantsthe prophets".
Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
STUDY POINT: No created being knows what is written in the "little book".
This "little book" contains the timing (day/hour) and exact actions that will occur when the
Rapture happens and heaven and earth is destroyed as "there should be time no longer".
When is this day/hour of the "little book"? When Jesus places His feet on the earth & sea and uncreates His Creation.
WE HAVE LEARNED FIVE (5) BASIC PRINCIPLES CONCERNING THE END
1. THE ELIJAH STUDY
Elijah/Elisha/the prophets knew not the hour but all knew the day of Elijah's rapture.
It appears that the Elect can not know the hour but can know the approximate day of His return (the date).
THIS EQUATES TO KNOWING THE DATE
2. THE 10 VIRGINS STUDY
The 10 virgins were awakened and received additional information at midnight that the bridegroom was soon coming.
It so appears that the Elect have also been awakened and have now received additional information at about midnight that the Lord is soon coming.
AWAKENED AND GIVEN ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AT MIDNIGHT
3. PAULS' SHIPWRECK STUDY
Paul and his fellow shipmen were given additional information at about midnight as to what would soon occur and how close they were to dry land. But it was'nt until the break of dawn that they actually seen and landed on the unknown dry land.
And it also appears that the Elect have been given additional information at about midnight as to what has been occurring and how close they are to dry land. It seems the Elect will see and land on their "far country" at the break of dawn (the early morning night watch) when the night Ends in 2025. Paul's Shipwreck study gives more clarity to the 10 virgins study that it is about midnight when this additional information is given. The year 2018 is halfway between 2011-2025.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AT ABOUT MIDNIGHT. SEEING AND LANDING ON DRY GROUND AT THE BREAK OF DAWN
4. THE HOMEOWNER STUDY
As we have seen from the comparisons of Matthew, Mark & Luke describing Jesus' sermon on the mount, no created being can know the day or hour.
From the evidence given, the evil servants also could not even know in what watch the master would return because they were not watching but not so for the wise and faithful servants, for it appears that they knew in what watch the master would return because they were watching.
Following Jesus' sermon, we know that no created being can know the day or hour. Yet, from the evidence given it appears that the Elect can know in what watch our Master will return because they will be watching.
IT APPEARS THE ELECT CAN KNOW IN WHAT WATCH
5. THE TIME NO LONGER STUDY
The "little book" contains the timing and actions of the "day & hour" of Matthew 24 & Mark 13.
The Elect therefore can not know the exact timing/day/hour of the very End when Jesus places His feet on the sea and earth uncreating all of Creation.
THE TIMING OF THE "LITTLE BOOK" AND NOT KNOWING THE "DAY & HOUR" ARE THE SAME
COMBINING ALL THE STUDIES TO REACH A BIBLICAL CONCLUSION
The Elect were ready for the LORD's return when evening began at Judgment Day in 2011 but fell asleep afterward due to not knowing what was occurring (10 Virgins). But at about midnight (2018) they have been awakened and given additional information as to what has been occurring and that He is now soon returning that we might exit the Ark and land on dry ground (10 Virgins/Paul's Shipwreck). Within this new information we can see that the LORD has allowed us to know in what watch the End will come... the early morning night watch (Home Owner/Paul's Shipwreck). This early morning watch will end on the date of May 7th, 2025. But what we can not know is in what day and hour the "break of dawn" will occur... when the Sun - Jesus - arises (Elijah/10 Virgins/HomeOwner/Time No Longer). This is due to the LORD withholding the final hours from us within the "little book" and the 24 time zones enveloping the World.
The "Day and Hour" = "Time no Longer"
The "Day and Hour" mentioned within Matthew 24 & Mark 13 is the same "Time" that is referred to within Revelation 10. They are both emphasizing that no created being can know the exact timing or actions that will occur when the End comes.
