The Holy Spirit woke me up on the
morning of October 7th at 4:00 AM to show me a vision about the
end times. For some time I have been asking
God to show me why He gave the great
revelation to the apostle John, which we know today as
the Book of Revelation.
THE FIRST SIXTY YEARS
Pentecost until 90 A.D., a time period of about 60 years, the
apostles, including Paul, had not been instructed by Jesus as to
how the world system would be closed down. They had been given
some glimpses like the references to a period of tribulation
when Jesus referred to a person as the “abomination of
desolation” standing in the temple in Jerusalem. When this
happened it would be time to flee. The apostle
Paul referred to
the man of sin but there were no
details of what would happen during
the most turbulent period in the history of mankind. The apostle
Peter said the earth and the
entire universe would be dissolved
with a new creation following
events but the
sequence in which they would come was not revealed.
It must have come as
a shock to the Christians when the temple in Jerusalem was
destroyed in 70 A.D., even though it was prophesied by Jesus.
In order for the
generation who is going to live during the tribulation period, a
written record had to be written down so that God’s people could
prepare themselves and not be surprised by the world dictator,
who would rule over a world federation with total economic and
religious control. The people also needed to know that this
ruler will be defeated by Jesus and about the judgments of God
and when the new creation would take place.
PERSECUTION OF THE
Jesus was persecuted
from the day He
was born in Bethlehem until the day
He died on the cross. From
the very beginning of his ministry, Jesus
prepared the disciples to
expect persecution when proclaiming the Gospel message
instead of being received with great joy.
With the exception of John, every
apostle died a violent death at the hands of men who hated
was birthed in
a time of persecution and there will
be much persecution before Jesus comes back.
THE MARK OF THE BEAST
Never before in the
history of mankind
has such a financial, industrial and commerce network existed
that controls individuals
in every nation on the earth;
but Jesus predicted this exact
There will be a mark of loyalty for people to be part of this
global system but no one will be forced to take it. Every person
who takes this mark on their forehead or right hand will
voluntarily pledge their loyalty to the Antichrist. (Revelation
THE PENALTY FOR TAKING
THE MARK OF THE BEAST
also made it
clear there are eternal consequences
for the person that takes the mark;
eternal damnation in the Lake of Fire, with no
possibility or repentance. In other words, you cannot undo this
action; not even the blood of Jesus will wash away this sin. (Revelation
WHAT SHOULD CHRISTIANS
The warning has been
given by Jesus; it
is up to each individual to take action. We will do well if we
listen to the Holy Spirit and learn how He
led the early church through their time of persecution. (John
TO AN END
the time of the Antichrist begins, it
will become unlawful to be a professing Christian, church
buildings will be closed; pastors and church leaders who insist
of preaching the true Gospel will be arrested, sent to labor
camps or executed. This is the
life of Christians
in China today.
Christians will no
longer have access to the Internet,
which will be purged of
all websites that include Christian
content or opposes the new world government.
Christians who have smart phones will find themselves cut off

HOW DID THE EARLY CHURCH
The early church survived because of the following factors:
There was no central
leadership for the first 200 years.
There were no church
buildings; instead, Christians met in small home groups and were
lead by an elder. Every city or a rural province would have a
bishop, who instructed the elders from the Bible. (1 Timothy
To be accepted into a home

receive Christ as Lord and Savior and submit to water baptism
through immersion. Once he had proved himself to be a disciple,
he was accepted into the fellowship. (Acts
Jesus had set up the
different offices in
In order to gain access to
a local fellowship, a letter of recommendation was required.
The written word of God was
used by the Holy Spirit to keep the churches spiritually healthy.
(2 Peter 1:13-21)
PREPARE FOR PERSECUTION
It is possible to prepare for a natural disaster such as an
hurricane, tornado or earthquake but it take careful planning.
In much the same way, Christians need to take stock and get
ready as we see the end times approaching.
Prepare yourself mentally
to trust in God alone, not in men or the government.
Be ready to die for your
a close fellowship with Jesus or you
will not be able to hold up during the pressure that is coming.
(John 15: 1-8)
Find Christians in your
community who you can trust and start building a local Christian
fellowship where you meet for worship, prayer and Bible studies.
Buy some extra

Find a good source of
Christian material that will teach you church and secular
history, doctrine and customs from ancient Israel.

to pray for the sick, to cast out demons and to be used by God
to work miracles. Prepare yourself to live in the supernatural,
not in the flesh.

ready to aid people in need.
