because the plague of it is exceeding great.
NOTE: These are the 7 last plagues of the wrathof God. They have been preceded by the 7 seals and the 7 trumps, making 21 judgments in all. But 10 plagues came upon Pharaoh the type of the Beast, and Egypt, a type of the world. Israel shared with Egypt in the first 3 plagues, somewhat comparable to tribulation; but Israel in Goshen was completely spared the last 7 plagues, though they were in the land and aware of God's wrath and judgment on Pharaoh and Egypt.
And we must remember, that Israel in the OT is a mighty type of the church in the NT. And just as God protected Israel in Goshen from the last 7 plagues, sowill He protect the church from His wrath on the Beast and the world - in little Goshens throughout the world. For - we the saints - have notbeen appointed unto God's wrath on the Beast and the world. True, we will experience Tribulation, as did Israel in Egypt under hard taskmasters, but notGod's wrath. Paul by the Spirit avers that we willin this life experience tribulation.
It is important that we understand the purpose of God in showing the church the future through the types and shadows of Israel in the OT. The 7 major steps of God in behalf of Israel in Egypt from the time of the Passover to the Crossing of the Red Sea, encompasses the 7 steps laid out in the Book of Revelation for the “One New Man” - Israel and the church.
Does the present day church of America have unity in doctrineconcerning these matters today? Unfortunately, No. Carefully study the biography of “Brother Yun, The Heavenly Man” by Paul Hattaway. Clearly here he sets forth the parallel between Israel in Egypt and the Church under the Beast and the World. Dr. James R. Graham had to stop translating the Schofield notes into Chinese when he discovered that they did not accurately picture the above parallel and eschatology. I would suppose that perhaps 90% of Christendom in the Western World has failed to let God say in the Bible what Hewants to say, and have instead added notes and doctrine to suit their hopes, wishes and desires of a church not really submitted in fullness to God and His Word. In confirmation to this, read “Visions Beyond the Veil” by H. A. Baker. These little orphans and beggars unanimously received visions in heaven that undergird all that is written above.
We need to return to the old hymn that says:
Onward Christian Soldiers, marching on to war -
With the Cross of Jesus, going on before.
We are not divided, all one body we -
Onein faith and doctrine, one in Charity.
When Communism took over China under Mao Tse-tung, Chinese believers felt they had been deceived by the Western Missionaries, who had taught them in doctrine that the church would notgo through the tribulation. What has China gone through that has seen millions martyred? Is this not great tribulation? The same has happened in most of the world apart from the Western Church.
So - read Revelation chapter 15 and 16 with the recounting by Jesus through His angel to John. See these 7 plagues. See the parallel between this and Israel in Egypt. Ensure that your doctrinal perception on this lines up with the Bible and not wishful thinking by those who have taken revelation and visions on this subject - that does notaccord with the Word of God.
Some will say: but the Book of Revelation with its apocryphal content surely cannot be relied upon! But God in His Wisdom has reserved for these last days the unfolding of HisBible Numerics through Ivan Panin, providing a mathematical proof that has yet to be successfully challenged. God'sBible Numeric NT, all 66 books, and no other books, apocryphal or of any other religion including the Koran, can give us the assurance that the Bible alonegives us. Paul says it succinctly when he says, “If any thinks himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him take knowledge of what things I write you, that it is the Lord's commandment.” 1 Corinthians 14:37. But this does not just apply to Paul's 14 epistles - Peter in 2 Peter 1:21 says, “For no prophecy was everborne by man's will; but men spoke for God, being borne on by the Holy Spirit.” This identifies 33 writers of the 66 books of the Bible, including John for the Book of Revelation. All have the same impregnable proof of the Divine, Verbal inspiration of the entire Bible!
And if I have any doubt concerning this, then at least I can be like Billy Graham at the very beginning of his outstanding ministry as an evangelist - and declare - I take the entire Bible by faith, whether I understand all of its nuances or not - and boldly declare for all66 books - “The Bible says!” - J.A.W.
