There will be a crisis on earth during the Tribulation Period.
Wednesday, July 30, 2003
During the Tribulation period, guardian angels will be used by God to nourish and sustain believers from any of the satanic attacks made upon them.
Angels play an important role in the protection of God’s people especially in light of the invisible enemy we face, Satan and the fallen angels, EPH 6:12.
Cherub, or cherubim.
The cherub ranked angels are the ones who have 4 wings; some have 2.
Wings represent rank, and apparently in eternity past, the cherub was the highest ranking angel of all.
The seraphim apparently did not exist until the fall of Satan because the highest ranked angel was Lucifer the son of the morning, and he was a cherub.
We have the seraphim, the cherubim, and then the third category, wingless angels.
In the angelic realm, wings represent power, speed, and purpose,
EZE 17:3 – wings represent speed, swiftness, and ability.
ZEC 5:9 – wings represent the ability to undertake great matters and carry heavy loads.
There are four Gospels in the New Testament, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The cherubs of Ezekiel each have four faces – those of a man, a lion, an ox (or bull) and an eagle – corresponding to the four Gospels.
In Revelation, the man, the lion, the ox and the eagle also appear as separate beings but are still grouped together, REV 4:7.
The lion points to the gospel of Matthew, the ox or calf to Mark, the man to Luke, and the eagle to John.
The Lord Jesus Christ uses a cherub who commands 4 other wingless angels,
REV 7:1-2, and they control the weather machine of the earth.
REV 14:6 – there is another cherub who is in charge of crisis evangelism.
EPH 3:10 in order that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.
Babylon the Great represents the great whore, the great harlot, the religious system.
In the last half of the Tribulation, God uses another elect angel; a cherub angel administers judgment to those who are on earth, REV 14:17.
The objective will be to wipe out all Jews prior to the Second Advent of Christ, so that when Christ returns there will be no Jews to re-gather.
There are two applications of doctrine to those surviving this great Holocaust, and the application = to flee, if you are saved in the first half of the Tribulation.
In time of pressure cowardice is emotion.
In time of pressure, courage is the ability to think.
They were to wait until they had orders.
They would depend at this point upon the leadership of Moses.
The masses cannot think.
