THERE IS NONE BESIDE THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY
Deuteronomy 6 v 4-5: Hear, O Israel: the LORD our God is one LORD: and thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
2 Samuel 22 v 32: For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?
Isaiah 40 v 15 -17: Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.
2 Samuel 22 v 8 -14: Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was wroth. There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind. And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies. Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled. The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice.
Isaiah 42 v 8 -10: I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
2 Samuel 6 v 6-7: And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.
Revelation 20 v 15: And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Romans 14 v 11: For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
Psalms 103 v 8-11: The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
Daniel 7 v 9b-10: The Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
Revelation 20 v 11: And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
THE REASON FOR THIS BOOK
Matthew:25:1: Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
M't:25:2: And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
M't:25:3: They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
M't:25:4: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
M't:25:5: While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
M't:25:6: And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
M't:25:7: Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
M't:25:8: And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
M't:25:9: But the wise answered, saying, not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
M't:25:10: And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
M't:25:11: Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
M't:25:12: But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS BOOK IS 2 FOLD:
1). TO HERALD THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO BOTH WISE AND FOOLISH VIRGINS.
2). TO PREPARE THE BRIDE OF CHRIST LEFT BEHIND ON EARTH TO GO THROUGH THE GREAT TRIBULATION: TO SEEK GOD WITH THE WHOLE HEART AND BE KNOWN OF HIM; AND BEING MADE HOLY TO BE FOUND UNTO THE PRAISE AND GLORY OF GOD’S ALMIGHTY NAME.
Revelation:3:15: I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Re:3:16: So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Re:3:17: Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Re:3:18: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Re:3:19: As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Re:3:20: Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Re:3:21: To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Re:3:22: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Hebrews:4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
2Timothy:4:2: Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
1Timothy:5:20: Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
As I write what God has told me to write in the sections exposing sin in the church (the work I have done for years), Satan will accuse me of not being loving, but this is a lie. True love for God will always cause God’s people to obey His commandments at whatever the cost; the fear of The Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Luke:14:26: If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
Lu:14:27: And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
John:12:25: He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
Joh:12:26: If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
John:14:21: He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
John:14:24: He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
Hebrews:12:6: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
1 Peter:4:17: For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
1 Peter:4:18: And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
Romans:12:1: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Ro:12:2: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
1John:2:15: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Mark:12:30: thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
TEST EVERY SPIRIT
1John:4:1: Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Matthew:7:15: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
M't:7:16: Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
M't:7:17: Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
M't:7:18: A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
M't:7:19: Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
M't:7:20: Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Matthew:12:30: He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
2Corinthians:11:14: And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
2Co:11:15: Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
2Timothy:3:16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Tm:3:17: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Peter:1:19: We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
DOUBT, THE WORK OF THE DEVIL
God’s people are often slow to believe what God has clearly told us in His Holy Word:
Luke:21:10: Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
Lu:21:11: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
Lu:21:25: And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Lu:21:26: Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
Lu:21:27: And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
Lu:21:28: And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Concerning our Lord’s resurrection:
Luke:24:25: Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
Lu:24:26: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
Lu:24:27: And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
Mark:16:9: Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
M'r:16:10: And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
M'r:16:11: And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
M'r:16:12: After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
M'r:16:13: And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
M'r:16:14: Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
Matthew:28:16: Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
M't:28:17: And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
Jesus said: ‘when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?’
Let us not be of doubtful mind but believing, for without faith it is impossible to please God.
TESTIMONY CONCERNING THE LORD’S 2ND COMING
Here I will speak of some of the ways in which God has prepared me for this task in the last 15 years.
John 3 v 27: A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
I am very much aware that Satan counterfeits the true work of God and therefore I will share some of my testimony regarding what The Lord has shown me concerning His coming.
Revelation 12 v 11: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
John 15 v 16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
1Timothy:4:12: Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
The year 1990: (I was 19 years of age at the time - my birth date is June the 7th 1970)
In February 1990 I was lambing on a sheep farm near Andover in Hampshire (England). I was part of a team of 3 responsible for lambing about 700 sheep over a number of weeks. One night after my shift was over, I got into bed after the Word and prayer and set my wrist watch alarm for 7:00 am. As I turned to strap the watch to the bed stead (for there was no bed side table) I suddenly was taken off my bed at an incredible speed. I was up and into the sky before I could blink. It was no longer night but bright blue sky and I was shooting upward towards a very bright light. As I went up I was aware of beautiful music surrounding me and it seemed as if the music was also flowing through me. It sounded like thousands of orchestras each playing praise to God and flowing together into one big crescendo (like streams, flowing into rivers, flowing into the sea ); And although it was so beautiful and clear to hear it did not distract my attention at all from the main focus, the intense light I was being drawn to. As I approached very rapidly to the light I knew without being told who was there. I now could see our Lord Jesus Christ with great power and glory and light streaming off Him. I really believed for an instant I was now with my Lord Jesus forever. But as quickly as I was drawn up I was shot back down to earth and into my bed. My first response was wow, absolutely wonderful, and then, Lord why did you send me back? What are you saying to me? I asked The Lord in my heart whether the vision meant that His second coming would be in my Life time? The Lord did not speak audibly to me but I had a strong persuasion in my heart that The Lord must be coming soon. What has taken place in the intervening years of my life have all pointed towards this fact. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming very soon.
The year 2000:
The Lord gave me a dream in which He showed me the end time situation of Great Britain. The dream was during the night. I looked and I saw a mighty angel, standing over Great Britain. His face and arms were of the colour of bronze and his covering was that of warrior ready for battle. In front of him he had a great sword which was pointed downward to the earth and his hands rested on the hilt. Around his head and hair was a belt of gold and another smaller one was upon his upper right arm. Over his shoulders and down his back was a large mantle. His face looked steadfastly up into heaven and was reflecting golden light. His height was comparable to the length of the British Isles and the height of the sword came to about his lower chest. As I looked the sea was black and very tempestuous. The waves of the sea were, I would describe, like a great army marching toward the land. They were very nearly about to go over and submerge the British Isles. The sky too was stormy and thunderous but the angelic warrior was paying no attention to the turbulent weather round about him, instead he looked earnestly up into heaven as if waiting a command. In the dream I asked The Lord why the angel stood still and was paying no attention to the storm around him. For it seemed certain to me that at any moment this sea would engulf Great Britain, but with one swipe of that enormous sword he could cast it far away. The answer I received from The Lord was from 2 Chronicles 7 v 14:
2Chronicles:7:14: If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
The voice of The Lord was as silent thunder in my heart. “My people ask me for revival but refuse to repent.”
11th of January 2005:
Psalms 119 v 9-11: Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Psalms 1 v 2: his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Since, by the will of God, I was born again by His Spirit in 1987 aged 17, I have had a tremendous thirst for the Word of God and have read and mediated on God’s precious Word day and night and have walked in obedience to it. I have had sweet communion with The Lord for the past 17 years of my life and God has given me many opportunities to preach the gospel and share his precious Word with others along the way.
On the 11th of January this year I received from The Lord an incredible revelation. Many mysteries in God’s Word (prophecy) were suddenly made clear to me in a matter of a very short space of time. I was acutely aware of what God was doing because I have studied prophecy for 17 years, since I was saved by God’s grace. As the work of the Holy Ghost moved me along, I became acutely aware of the reason why this was happening and that God was calling me to cry out the clear message to His people “Behold the Bridegroom cometh”.
God has shown me by His Spirit through His Word what will take place in the 7 years of world history from the rapture concluding in the battle of Armageddon and our Lord’s 1000 year Reign. This is for the benefit of those who will go through ‘The Great Tribulation’.
Daniel 12 v 9-10: And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
THIS WORLD IS NOT OUR HOME
I would also like to share with you 2 other dreams which we were given by The Lord at the time I began to write, I have tested these before The Lord with the wisdom He has given me and I am certain they are from Him. They were revealed during the night to two of our children, Joshua and Abigail. Joshua and Abigail are both taught in the Word of God day and night including praise to God and prayer as are all the children God has given us. They are not unruly children but are well disciplined and obedient. They are given jobs to do each day, which they normally carry out diligently and their schooling is solely based on God’s Holy Word - they love writing and learning Bible verses. Above all, they truly love God and are born again of His Spirit. I have baptised both of them. They are very affectionate and I normally receive several spontaneous kisses and hugs from them each day.
Both dreams were given on the same night (26th Jan 2005) after which they both were excited to tell us in the morning. This has never happened before like this, although our son Joshua has had one other dream before, which I know was of God and also when he was younger, 2 or 3 times he came to us saying he had seen The Lord Jesus and angels as he was sleeping.
Psalms 8 v1-2: O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
Mark 10 v 14: Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
(Jesus is not speaking of rebellious children, but of children who love Him)
I could see the whole world as it moved round and it was like a whole field of wheat with weeds in it. Then I saw a man with a nice face and a sharp round shaped knife (sickle) in his hand. He wore a blue robe with a piece of thick yellow cord round his waist. I also saw two chariots and the four horses which were a reddy colour. I also saw a barn in the sky. The man cut the wheat with his sickle, took out the weeds and bound the wheat together in bundles and put them in one chariot; he threw the weeds into the other chariot. When he had finished cutting all the wheat, he drove the chariot to heaven and stored the wheat in the barn. He came back and drove the other chariot into the middle of the earth and threw the weeds into fire and then drove back into heaven.
We were walking in the field outside. There were lots of clouds in the sky and some rain. The clouds went away and it was blue sky and sunny. I saw The Lord Jesus sitting on a seat with steps (after asking several questions about the seat it turns out to be a yellow (golden) colour seat with steps - a throne therefore). Jesus was wearing a white robe and on His head was a crown of gold (my words to Abigail’s description), around the throne were many angels with large wings, some were flying and some were standing. Under The Lord Jesus was a cloud which also looked silvery, with many people on it. Suddenly there was a chariot beside us with an angel riding the chariot. The horse was a reddy colour with two large wings. The angel told us to get onto the chariot and he took us up to Jesus.
These are some of the many things God has brought our way to confirm the work He has given us to do. I have also been very much aware of the enemy seeking to hinder me.
THE GREAT SUPPER
Luke:14:16: Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
Lu:14:17: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
Lu:14:18: And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
Lu:14:19: And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
Lu:14:20: And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
Lu:14:21: So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
Lu:14:22: And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
Lu:14:23: And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
Lu:14:24: For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
What is a parable?
Matthew:13:34: All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
M't:13:35: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
The parable of ‘The Great Supper’ spoken of by our Lord Jesus Christ speaks of the wedding feast of The Lamb.
There are certain points I would like to highlight from this parable which shall take place.
1. Luke:14:17: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
a). The appointed time for the supper is come.
b). The servant is sent out to announce that the supper is now ready.
2. Luke:14:18a: And they all with one consent began to make excuse
Luke:14:21: So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
Luke:14:22: And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
a). The appointed supper time is delayed as a result of those who did not heed the invitation.
b). The servant is sent out a second time to bring in the poor, the maimed, the halt and the blind.
c). These actually arrive at the master’s house, even as the 5 wise virgins of Matthew 25 are taken into heaven.
3. Luke:14:23: And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
a). A third time the servant is sent out to bring people in so that the masters house is full. This can be understood regarding those who are left behind at the rapture who repent during the great tribulation / Antichrist system - Revelation 15 verses 2-4.
It is clear from Luke 14 v 16-24 that people can delay the appointed time for the great supper / wedding feast of The Lamb: and therefore The Lord’s imminent return.
Note: Israel’s disobedience to God’s Word delayed Israel’s entry into the promised land. In God’s wrath many were cut off in the wilderness.
