CROWNS & BIRTHING – IS THE CHURCH AGE CLOSING?
It is said that when you see the TOP of the baby’s head appearing during birth, it is called “Crowning.” The simple question might be this: is the Corona (CROWN) VIRUS a final warning from the Lord that the Christians are about to get their CROWN – ON A 4-11 First Fruits 2020, that is, TOMORROW SOMETIME or next year in 2021?Inasmuch as Israel rejected Christ, perhaps First Fruits should be reckoned as Saturday which would end on 12:00 Midnight as we go into Sunday.
Remember how the Lord marked out April 11th with the two comets in the sky painting a cross over the head of Satan?
Let’s look at Revelation 12 and the story of the BIRTH OF THE MANCHILD (the church!)
12 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
This is all about the BIRTH of the CHURCH. This is how it appears to work.
Israel is the woman. Israel produces, via Jesus Christ, the CHURCH. Isaiah refers to this as a great wonder, as this CHILD (THE CHURCH) was born BEFORE ISRAEL travailed, BEFORE she had birth pangs, and has anyone ever heard of such a thing? Isaiah Chapter 66:
5 Hear the word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the Lord that rendereth recompence to his enemies. (Tribulation Period)
7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.
This is what is known as a double reference prophecy – for it applies to the Birth of Israel as well as the Birth of the Church both are “nations.” Remember when Jesus was rejected, He said He would give the task of building THE KINGDOM to another “nation.” Remember that Jesus presented Himself to Israel as their Messiah and they rejected Him, so He formed THE CHURCH. The Church was brought forth without pain and without travail for Israel.
Matthew 21:42-44 King James Version (KJV)
42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder
The manchild is THE CHURCH, and those that make up the Church are called KINGS AND PRIESTS!! When the Church Age is completed, the manchild will be born and instantly taken to heaven, to escape the TRIBULATION and Satan’s wrath. Satan then turns his attention to Israel.
Now in Revelation Chapter Four, we find A DOOR OPENS IN HEAVEN as soon as the Church Age is OVER. The portal has opened, and those that were ready and had the “extra oil” in their lamps vanished and the DOOR WAS SHUT. It is also here that the Lord says to those left behind “I know you not.”
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
Let’s turn to Matthew 7 where we find the same rejection:
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
In the Book of Revelation, Chapters Two and Three outlines the entire church age from Pentecost back in around AD 30-33 or so all the way up to today. The Church reaches its OMEGA POINT and the Church Age is OVER. I believe we find the removal of the Church in Chapter 4:
4 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.
Hereafter what? THE CHURCH AGE! We move into another dispensation, the dispensation of the TRIBULATIONAL SAINTS. The tribulational saints are NOT called Christians. They are not part of the Church because the Church has been removed. They are not part of the BRIDE OF CHRIST. They become part of the KINGDOM via beheading. They loved not their lives unto the DEATH and they had the testimony of Jesus. Exactly who these folks are is in some sense hard to uncover. Some say they are the 144,000. Some say they are messianic Jews. Other say they are those LEFT BEHIND and were not ready, not BORN AGAIN. No one knows.
I will close with the same date as the TWO COMETS crossed Satan’s Head on a 4-11 in 1996 and 1997 amd take that date and apply that to Revelation 4:11:
11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Why would Revelation 4:11 remind us who IS KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS on a 4:11?
It does appear that that Corona (CROWN) virus is a SIGNAL FROM THE LORD. The top of the head of the MANCHILD is now appearing. Are you ready? Is the Church age about to close? Is the Baby manchild about to be born and snatched away? So we wait, we watch, we pray always to be WORTHY to stand before the SON OF MAN.
Indeed and Amen and Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus!
