The Day of the Lord (“End Times”) is Here!
QUESTION: What does the Bible and Bible prophecy say are the signs we are in the “End Times”? What does the Lord want us to do?
ANSWER: In the “End Time” (Day of the Lord) we are to be Sanctified by “Truth”.
What is “Truth”? His Word is Truth (Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17). This article explains how we are to be set apart by Truth so we can get through the Judgment as the Lord wishes us to do.
Mankind was removed from in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve followed satan’s words (lies). Now the Lord is calling us to come back to Following His Holy Words and Ways of Righteousness, Wisdom and Peace. Jesus has the Words of Eternal Life (John 6:68). He wants us to hear His voice.
The Day of the Lord has ALREADY Began:
It was foretold in Zechariah 14:7 that the Day of the Lord would begin with the entrance of Light – and His Words give Light – See Psalm 119:130. The Day of the Lord began with the opening of His Holy Words that give Light and Understanding so we can increase in Wisdom. We are to bring forth His Kingdom on Earth. See the following verses which explain:
- Psalm 119:130 (His Words give Light);
- Psalm 119:160 (His Word is Truth);
- Psalm 119:142 (His Truth is Law);
- Zechariah 14:7 (The Day of the Lord – It will be light);
- Hosea 6:5 (Call to Repentance);
- Daniel 12:4 & 9-10 (Words opened for the Time of the End);
- Revelation 6:1-2 (1st Seal Judgment);
- Revelation 18:1-2 (The Fall of Babylon);
- John 14:23-24 (Keep His Word);
- John 17:17 (Sanctified by Truth – His Word);
- Joel 2:12-20 (Call a Sacred Assembly).
Judgments of the Day of the Lord are rendered
by our hearing, or our rejecting, of God’s Words:
In John 12:48, the Lord testified that all the Judgments of the Day of the Lord are according to the Words of God that He was sent into the world to bear witness of. It is a requirement of God that we are to choose to be set apart from the world by “Truth” which is His set apart Holy Words. See the following verses which explain:
- Deuteronomy 18:18-19 (God sent Jesus to earth to bear witness to God’s Words and we are REQUIRED to hear His Words. God made all His Creation with His spoken Word. See Genesis 1);
- John 18:37; (Jesus testifies to Roman Pontius Pilate that He came to bear witness to Truth. “What is Truth?” His Word is Truth – Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17);
- John 12:48 (We are Judged by whether or not we hear His Words);
- John 17:17 (His Word is Truth);
- John 5:24-25 (He who hears Jesus’ Words and believes in God has everlasting life);
- Psalm 119:130 (His Words give light) & Hosea 6:5 (Your judgments are like light [His Words give light]);
- Proverbs 1:20-33 (Don’t miss Proverbs 1:23 which says “Turn at my rebuke; Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.”).
Jesus said “My sheep hear my voice.” (John 10:27) and He was speaking of understanding the “symbolism” in His speech and knowing what Words like these mean: Ask, Arrow, Blood, Bow, Bread, City, Cup, Door, Field, Fish, Flesh, Food, Fruit, Gate, Gather, Light, Milk, Meat, Mountain, Oil, Ox, River, Rock, Sabbath, Seed, Sent, Stand, Sword, Table, Truth, Vine, Voice, Walk, Wash, Way, Wine, Word, etc. (These Words are woven throughout the scriptures of the whole Bible. For example: “Ox treading grain” is symbolic of a teacher of His Words. (See Deuteronomy 25:4, 1st Corinthians 9:9-12, 1 Timothy 5:18) His Words “Seal” us, get us through this Time of Judgment (John 5:24), and keep us safe (Revelation 12:17).
The Father Gave Us Specific Requirements
that His elect must accomplish in His Day:
- Anoint the Most Holy: Jesus Christ is King!
- Turn to the Lord and receive His Spirit – the Spirit of Truth.
(See Proverbs 1:20-23; John 14:15-17; Luke 24:44-45; Proverbs 1:23)
- Hear and receive His Words of Wisdom that sets apart His elect from those of the world. (See John 17:17; Joel 2:12-20; John 14:15-17; 2 Corinthians 12:1-4; John 15:7; Proverbs 1:20-33; James 5:19-20)
- Call a Sacred Assembly (See Joel 2:12-20) – Gather and teach the people His Holy Words.
