“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
As the world gets closer and closer to the “Day of the LORD,” the church should be looking with great expectation for the increase of knowledge and revelation that was promised to the saints living at the end of the church age. When Daniel was given the revelation concerning the end of days, God told him that there would be some knowledge that would be sealed and not revealed until the days in which we live. “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase… And he said, ‘Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.’” (Dan 12:4, 9).
Unfortunately, many Christian scholars are still working off of an end-times model from nearly two hundred years ago. Daniel chapter 12 makes it clear that there are certain truths that would not be revealed to any other generation except for the one living immediately before the Second Coming of Christ. So why would we think that an end-times model put forth before the invention of electricity, would have a better perspective on the times in which we live than that of present-day saints?
The first thing that must be understood before someone begins to study the Book of Revelation is the meaning of the Greek word for Revelation. The Greek word apokalupsis is where we get the English word “Apocalypse.” Mistakenly, the word apocalypse has become synonymous with “the end of the world,” or “worldwide destruction.” However, the Greek word simply means: “A revelation or a revealing of something that was previously hidden.” In short, it’s meaning conveys the idea of a progressive pulling back of the veil. As we quickly approach the end of the age and the veil is slowly pulled back, we should have a better perspective than even the most pious saints and prophets who have come before us.
This is something that is true of all biblical history. Even though many great prophets like Isaiah foretold the coming of Christ, none of them would have been able to understand this in the level of detail available to those living during the actual events. Jesus said to His disciples: “Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see; for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it.” (Lk 10:23-24)
Much of the Christian church has yet fathomed the glory that will be visibly manifested upon believers once we have come to a place of spiritual maturity and eventually Christian unity. When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, his face literally glowed with the glory of the Lord. The glory of the Lord was so powerful upon his face that he had to wear a veil. [See Ex 34:29-35]. This is what is coming upon the church in the last days.
“Look among the nations and watch — Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you.” (Hab 1:5)
