And the unsaved.....what purpose does Revelation holds for them? The ones that we are diligently working to warn TODAY?

The sons are the first-fruits from whom God will reveal Himself! He will have a representative in the earth. "When He shall come to be glorified in his saints". (2 Thes 1)

That doesn't tell me anything about: What purpose does Revelation holds for the unsaved. Who's their "representative"? Lost...

We are to be His body in the earth.

This is all elementary stuff to Christians, who have misunderstood the goal of their lives all their lives. Just as His disciples were looking for swords and thrones, we look for the natural among the spiritual.

The first-born and first-fruits are the "few" and "little flock;" but these, though first delivered from the curse, have a relation to the whole creation, which shall be saved in the appointed times by the first-born seed - that is by Christ and His body, which are required to bring about "the restitution of all things."

Rapture, no - revelation, yes.

Misunderstood goals? Elementary stuff you say? Well WELCOME to Kindergarten!! The purpose of a Believer, a real true and blue BELIEVER, knowing that's all well with their soul...........is to lay down THEIR life for the brethren! Just as HE DID FOR US! Anything short of that, it's for nothing!!

Now that's selfless!

That's exactly what I'm talking about! Jesus said, "Except a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it bears no fruit - but if it die, it bears much fruit.

The events of revelation are not to be escaped from (that shouldn't be our focus) but overcome. The fires of revelation will be the oven that perfects the saints to do what they were created to do...

...give birth to the Man-child.

I tried to rep you, Little Elmer, but as is often the case, I get some strange control message telling me I have to rep someone else first. What's up with that?
