Please listen tomorrow to Open Bible Dialogue. We will be looking at how close we are to the Rapture. The title will be “RELIGIOUS ZOMBIES BLASHPHEMING THE HOLY GHOST”. The darkness of false religions is closing in and the only protection is the Holy Scripture and all the provisions of Jesus Christ. Please go to our Home page and watch the video of President Ronald Reagan. He reflects a springtime of our past history.


Any view of Revelation chapter four that does not allow for the triumphant Rapture of the saints is woefully inadequate and an embarrassment to the truth. It is the grandest picture of the true church and the overcoming saints who were brought up from the Lion’s mouth unto the King’s throne. The blood-washed saints that were hated by the world had faced their persecutors for the last time. Giving up the world, they had gained the grandest seats around the throne of the Father.

This chapter is the beginning of the glory that has been promised to the saints since the opening of the Holy Bible. From seats around the throne to the city of the throne, the saints will never suffer shame again. They are His saints; they will take up positions as His elders until they march forth as His army, reign as Kings, and possess the city of the Bride.

Revelation chapter four moves us past the Church Age, where His saints are pilgrims and strangers on this earth. After the opening of chapter four, everything revealed in this book is future prophecy. The pilgrim saints become serving elders that sit on lesser thrones and participate with the Father and the Son in the redemption of this earth. Redemption in the Bible is always a judicial business incorporating cleansing, judgment, and the renewing and perfecting of that which sin has corrupted. The authorized elders, Cherubim, and angels will serve the Lamb of God during this process.

This chapter is the opening volley, and ultimately the universe will be perfectly redeemed. From the rebellion in heaven, where Satan and his angels were cast to the earth, until Satan presents his false Christ and false spirit, every act of evil must be presented and judged at the bar of justice. It will be seven years of perfect redemption until the earth is fit for the King of Kings to rule and reign.

The great Jehovah God is seated on His throne in the celestial heavens and is fully prepared for the heavenly court. Over six thousand years have passed since a serpent possessed by Lucifer walked into the garden and deceived God’s perfect couple, Adam and Eve. From the venom of lies in the garden, sin has touched every offspring of Adam. The upheaval of the earth by the Noahic flood left its scars on a sin-cursed earth. There is not one element of the created world unspoiled by the flood of evil, and it’s now time for redemption.

The celestial city of Jerusalem, now in heaven, and its inhabitants are the only untouched geography in the cosmos, and the court will be held in its temple. David must have had a slight view of this seven-year session. “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. God is known in her palaces for a refuge.” (Psalms 48:1-3).

The court proceeding that must be held in this city demands a Pre-Tribulation Rapture to transfer the saints from their graves or from their living on earth to fulfill their appointed place in the judgments. This earth is the Lord’s and He has appointed it to His saints to posess for eternity. It has been clearly stated that we shall judge this earth, and our removal to this grand event is unquestionably guaranteed. The fight against the Rapture is a last-ditch battle from the devil to prevent us from our heavenly task. The proceeding cannot begin until we arrive at our appointed seats before the throne.

Come Up Hither! After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter (Revelation 4:1). Please look carefully at this truth. The scene in heaven was visible to John. It was a drama for him. He did not hear it described, he saw it in action. The Lord said, “I will shew thee things which must be hereafter”,. speaking of the Church to which John had just delivered seven letters.

There is no event on God’s calendar that demands a door opened into heaven from the earth’s advantage except the Rapture. This great vision by John incorporates all the fine details that Scripture associates with the saints being caught up to meet the Lord in the air. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord”. (I Thessalonians 4:16-17.

Before John sees the throne in heaven, he hears the voice of Jesus Christ “as it were of a trumpet” saying, “Come up hither.” The trumpet voice gave details to John to make sure the church would understand this further information as “hereafter”or following the letters to the seven churches. Nothing from this point in Revelation can be a historical event. This was clearly stated in the introduction of chapter one. “Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter” (Revelation 1:19). All through chapter one, two, and three the whole vision and scene is the High Priestly appearance of Jesus Christ and His letters to His churches.

John is clearly caught up into the heavens to view further proceedings that demand his presence. He is going to witness the glorified saints seated in positions of honor and dressed in attire that would be impossible on earth. Everything he sees and writes from this verse has no connection to the Church Age and its kingdom business, which the Scripture identifies as the spiritual kingdom “that cometh not with observation. Then Jesus told them that the Kingdom was still future. “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:20-21).

“And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald (Revelation 4:2-3). What John was about to witness demanded that a spiritual dimension temporarily overshadow him. This again proves that his vision was beyond the physically observable age of the church and was a prophetic view of future events. No one can stand before God’s throne or even view God’s throne until our bodies are glorified. “For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven” (2 Corinthians 5:2). This vision given to John was for our future hope and demands the Rapture to fulfill its glory.

In the Spirit, John looks on the majestic throne of Almighty Jehovah, where our Heavenly Father is seated in His glory. The description given to us is limited by human language inadequate to reach to such heights of splendor. The glory was such that the writer could only compare it with the grandeur of rare jewels. There was a gleam of glory and overwhelming splendor making Him incomparable to earthly beauty. The dazzling colors of a rainbow were seen overshadowing the throne and its occupant. The throne itself was in sight like unto an emerald. No earthly wonder has ever been so described.

How can we question that something is about to transpire that the ages of human pain has longed to behold? Ten thousand gods have imitated God the Father and have tried to possess His kingdom. They all have faded into defeat. The last of those gods are soon to disappear. His presence settles the God-questions of the rebellious multitudes. The proceedings that will issue from His throne will not leave any questions or doubts. His glorious presence became the backdrop of the rest of this great masterpiece of literature called REVELATION” Every scene from this point forward must be understood as the acts and transactions of Him, His Son, His Holy Spirit, and His appointed elders and angels. He is sovereign God, and all glory and honor must flow from His throne.

And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind (Revelation 4:4-6). All three of these verses begin with references to the throne of God and He that is seated in His majesty, Notice the progression, “And round about the throne”, “And out of the throne”, “And before the throne.” That is breathtaking language. and John both heard it and saw it.

First, “round about the throne” are the saints of God that have been promoted to elders. No more pilgrims and strangers traveling through a weary land, but exalted, glorified, and seated “round about the throne.” The judgment seat of Christ has occurred, and His saints have been promoted to their lofty positions. They are seated after a lifetime of pilgrimage and sorrows. They are clothed in sparkling-white raiment, which is the righteousness of the glorified elders. They are crowned with crowns of gold, and this is just the first day of eternity for all of them. I can hardly wait because He has paid our debt of sin and redeemed his chosen so we can be there. The Rapture is at the door and Satan is fighting with a fury.

  3. Thanks, Pastor Joseph for the “look ahead.” I think you got this future view right on target.

    I do believe, though, that there is much solid evidence that mankind has been messing up much longer than only 6000 years. Since we have two direct instances of a day being other than 24 hours long (Joshua 10:12-14, 2 Kings 20:8-11), I believe this possibility of is not in contradiction to Scripture. Remember, too, that the Bible often uses the still-common phrase of the sun rising or setting when we know it is thre actually the Earth rotating that produces this effect. This does not mean the Bible is “wrong,” but that it is just using a figure of speech. There is also the matter of Daniel’s “weeks” which are actually each seven years, not seven days long. His last “week” is the seven-year Tribulation which as yet to begin meaning there has already been a 2000 year gap between Daniel’s 69th and 70th week which the great prophet did not record. There may have been many such omissions, left out because they were not considered necessary for it to convey God’s message to us. Imagine, too, just how huge and unwieldy the Bible would be if it had recorded EVERYTHING! John himself said the whole world could not contain the amount of books just if all of the events in Jesus’ life alone were written down (John 21:25)!

    (However once you and I get to heaven, we’ll know doubt find out which of us is right!)

    What I do know is that since we both believe in the Jesus of Scripture, I am confident that we BOTH will indeed get there!

    We certainly do agree on where we are in this present world as regards to the soon arrival of Daniel’s Last Week nd how terrible it will be, and a future more wondrous than our wildest dreams as we see our Creator and his Son face to face and have our homes in the New Jerusalem forever.

    So, in the grand scheme of this, how long this planet or universe has been here really doesn’t matter. But stepping into God’s eternal city certainly does.

    Keep sending out these uplifting articles of the grand future we believers have just up ahead!

    Keep looking ahead – and looking up!

  4. Dear Pastor

    Thank you! because you have enshrined the “Blessed Hope” in a wonderful series of narratives on John the Revalator. Those who who call upon the name of the Lord Jesus will not be disappointed.

    God Bless

    Sorry i cannot get involved in your politics as i am a Canadian. However i will pray that your next President is a good Christian with the ability to lead such a great nation.

  5. I’m sure you never saw this, but Revelation is very much a view of the Catholic Mass.

    Jesus is seen in the white linent robe and golden sash of a priest, and He stands bext to the seven-branched candlestick, as Christians lit lamps during the day to celebrate Mass. The 24 presbyters surround the throne of God, much like the earthly presbyters sat around the chair of the bishop chair. “Cathedra” in Latin for “chair”, so the “cathedral” is the church in which the bishop’s cathedra is located. There is a golden altar in heaven, as there is an altar in each Catholic and Orthodox church; the angels sing “Holy, Holy, Holy” to God, since repeating an adjective is the Hebrew and Aramaic way of showing comparative (Holy Holy) or the superlative “Holy, Holy, Holy” since there is “-er” or “-est” in those languages; incense in used to glorify God and represent the prayers rising to Him, as is done on earth; On the heavenly altar the Lamb is sacrificed (slain yet alive) until the end of time, as in the Catholic Mass in which the sacrifice of Jesus is re-presented and renewed but NEVER REPEATED, since Jesus’ deathj was once for all; there are martyrs under the altar of heaven – Pope St Felix 1, in the 100s, commanded Mass be celebrated atop the tombs of martyrs. There is singing during the wedding supper of the Lamb as there has always been singing for the Lord’s Supper, including at the Last Supper; the Ark of the Covenant is seen in the heavens, immediately before St John speaks of the Virgin Mary, “A woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars” connecting gthe two. As the Ark held the tables of the Law, Mary’s womb held the Giver of the Law, the Word of God.”

    There are a lot more convergences between Revelation and the Mass, but you can see them for yourselves.

    You can tell me how wrong I am all you want; read Revelation through and see how every point in the earthly liturgy is found in the heavenly liturgy, and that both are WELL KNOWN to St John the Apostle and Evangelist – “revelator” as you term him.

  6. Just a comment on what Revelation is which I believe can be found in the opening two verses of this book itself:

    Revelation 1:1-2 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things he saw.

    This remarkable book certainly does use symbolism, but often explains it as well (e.g. Revelation 1:20). There are also visions of actual events, also explained (e.g. Revelation 7:9-17). Where a symbol is not explained in Revelation, the meaning can very often be found elsewhere in the Bible (e.g. Revelation 12:1, the woman clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet, and the crown of twelve stars is Israel – Genesis 37:5-10). But some, I’m sure, will be a mystery to us until we meet Jesus face to face!

    I believe one must be careful to make sure to use the Bible to interpret itself and not “over-allegorize.”

    Admittedly, this is not always easy to do!

  7. SEAN:

    You can make the Bible say anything you want and interprete to mean what you want. But that does not mean your interpretation is true. The way you can tell the RCC is false is because of its doctrine on Justification by Grace alone.

  8. you’ve got an incredible weblog right here! would you prefer to make some invite posts on my weblog?

  9. Dear Pastor


    In Acts Chapter 2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the Apostles doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers…no cathedrals mentioned here. The Lord never once told us to build those huge buildings..could it be Templar money?

    The believers are the Church not the buildings.

    i’ll never become a catholic!!!!

    God Bless

  10. Sean, you need to get over the catholic religion and ask Jesus to come into your heart and life and get on your knees in all humility. You cannot continue to put forth the catholic liturgy as the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    I was a catholic and Praise God for opening my eyes.

  11. By the way – with the three posters who let me know none of them appreciate the Catholic Faith, I notice none of them was able to show me how wrong I am USING SCRIPTURE, only their own emptionalism and the precepts of man.

  12. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  13. Sean;
    “Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven in=mage, or any likeness of ANY THING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATER UNDER THE EARTH. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God,” Exodus 20
    Catholic church is loaded with graven images. People bow down to the Pope, including our Presidents.According to Catholic teachings, I got this info from a Priest: “You have a father and a mother in heaven. Your father is Jesus, and your mother is Mary. A mother’s heart is always more tender and more prone to mercy than that of a father. Often you offend your father by your sins. When Jesus would punish you as you deserve, the good Virgin Mary hastens to Jesus and pacifies Him. She places herself between Him and you. She speaks in your favor and asks for your pardon and obtains it. Throw yourselves into the arms of that good mother; have recourse to her sovereigh power over Jesus, and be assured that you will be saved through her.”
    The Bible never states Mary is divine, or salvation through her. It does say, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6
    You need to understand the New Agers are laughing at the Catholic’s, the rituals used by the church are pagan. Feb. 2 is the Candlemas or the featival of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin. This is the Feast of Pan, it is the celebration of the goddess’s recovery from giving birth to the new years sun god. They are the exactly the same, just under different names.
    Do your own research, and stop putting your faith in man. Read what has been written by the Pope’s and the Bishops, compare it to Scripture. The Holy Bible has nothing in common with their teachings.
