Commentary By: Gordon King
The number seven, just another number or does it have a special meaning? It does to God Almighty!
The good Lord uses numbers and symbols throughout scripture, as He does with patterns and foreshadowings as well! We should not be afraid of numbers and symbols, as God uses them for His purpose.
The number seven in scripture represents completeness and perfection. The number three also represents completeness and perfection. Hence the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The number of God is 777, which is a number containing 3 numbers of completeness and perfection, just by chance? I think not!
God completed Creation in 7 days, the existence of man on earth will be 7 thousand years before the Great White Throne Judgment and the New Heaven and Earth, there are 7 candles on a menorah representing 7 Jewish feasts, Jesus opens a scroll in heaven with 7 seals, there stood in heaven a Lamb which had 7 horns and 7 eyes which are the 7 Spirits of God, there are 7 bowls of wrath being poured out by 7 angels, and on and on it goes.
God also speaks of the week or 7 days at the end times, the Anti-Christ will make a covenant with many for one week. This has special significance and must not be ignored, changed or altered. It is not 31/2 years but seven years which have not yet come but are close at hand.
This last seven-year period marks the end of mankind on earth as we know it. It ushers in the coming of our Messiah and the last day (one thousand years), peace on earth with Christ ruling and reigning, completion of what began 6 thousand years earlier. It is a seven-year period of completion.
Satan is a deceiver, a liar, and a thief! His is to steal, kill, and destroy. He imitates God and His ways, attempting to be God himself. This is why he takes this seven-year period and breaks it in two at its midpoint in time, the time when he proclaims to be God sitting in the Holy Place! He is attempting to destroy what God has ordained, to blaspheme the Holy One.
Do not be deceived by what is coming upon the world, do not be led astray. Be a Berean and study the scriptures for yourself, ask God for wisdom and enlightenment, and He will show you the way and the truth.
There will be no peace in Jerusalem, not until Christ returns to set up His kingdom! The so-called Palestinians do not want peace, they do not want land, they want the annihilation of a people, the Jews! They are calling for the murder of all Jewish men, women, and children. Do you actually believe for one minute that they want peace on earth?!
At the beginning of the seven-year Tribulation period there will be a false peace, however it is only a false peace!
Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace, it is only by Him and through Him that we can have peace.
The world is full of false prophets and false teachers, but I tell you this, listen to the Holy Spirit within, do not be deceived by doctrines of demons, do not be led astray by false teachings. Study the scriptures, don’t take any ones word for the truth without testing against the word of God Almighty, including my own! Read it, study it, pray about it, know the truth.
God is coming soon! The Tribulation period is close at hand, hence, so is the rapture of the church!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
