The Last Generation - Introduction

‘The Last Generation’



No one knows the day of rapture
Mat 24:34-36 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
   Our Lord was adamant that no one will know the day or hour of rapture, though He gave a detailed account of Endtime events. However, He told us to read and understand the book of Daniel for a better understanding of Endtime prophecies and events.
Mat 24:15 "Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand),

Revelation in the last days
Dan 12:4, 9-10 "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."... Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, "My lord, what shall be the end of these things?" And he said, "Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end."
    These two thousand years or so, God has sealed up the Endtime mysteries but will only reveal it in the last days or last generation. No wonder that after our Lord Jesus' resurrection, He told His disciples not to worry about the endtime events for the mysteries were sealed until the last days.

Acts 1:7-8 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
    Similarly, all Christians must continue to live godly lives and keep His words and commission just like the Apostles of old, until we are sure that we are living in the last days, when He will reveal the understanding of Endtime prophecies.

Our Lord Jesus Christ also assured us that the last generation will be able to witness:
1. Mat 24:4-5 – False Christ, false christs, etc.
2. Mat 24:6-9 – World War 3,
3. Mat 24:10-14 – Period of Tribulation (Persecutions and Martyrdoms of Christians, Gospel preached
to all, rebuilding of temple of God, etc.,
4. Mat 24:15-28 – Great Tribulation,
5. Mat 24:29-31 – Great Heavenly Blackout and rapture.

We pray that this Last Generation (LG) series will reveal the spiritual conditions of Endtime Christians, Judgments of God, Preparation of the bride of the Lamb, etc.
