"And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and heset his right foot upon the sea and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
And when the seven thundes had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not." (Rev.10:1-4).
In this message I will like to point to something the Lord revealed to my understanding recently. I was meditating upon this verse and the Lord reminded me of this thing which he had made me to know: And that is, God will grant immortality to certain men in this end of the age. Think of it this way: NO ONE CAN GO IN THE RAPTURE UNLESS ONE IS IMMORTAL! Or let's put it another way: YOU WILL HAVE TO BECOME IMMORTAL TO GO AWAY IN THE RAPTURE! Let me put it in another way: IF YOU GO AWAY IN THE RAPTURE, IT MEANS YOU WILL NOT DIE PHYSICALLY! You are not coming back to die physically, isn't it? It means, you either have been granted immortality "before you go away in the rapture", or you get immortality to be able to go away in the rapture, or as you go away in the rapture you become immortal.
Now do you see why I said NO ONE WILL GO AWAY IN THE RAPTURE UNLESS ONE BECOMES IMMORTAL? Immortality will be granted by God to certain sons of men. Right from here and now, these men will begin to demonstrate this immortal power.
Let's look at it this way: Just like God gave gifts to believers in the church, as in speaking in tongues by the Holy Ghost. Men began to talk in another language by the Holy Ghost. Now God will give immortality to certain men by the Holy Ghost; not that they will become immortal after they die. No! They will begin to walk around as immortal men right here on earth and will go away in that format. What does that mean? There is no way you can go away in the rapture, as raptured saints, without becoming immortal. The insight God is revealing now is that, contrary to previous belief that men will only become immortal after they are translated, many saints will receive immortality before the rapture. AND THEY WILL BE MADE AWARE OF IT BY THE LORD!
You should ask yourself the question: At what time does immortality steps in, in the process of preparing for the rapture? We have always assumed it will be at the exact time of the rapture is when the saints will become immortal. The Lord revealed to me that God will grant immortality to many before the rapture . That is, these men will know that God has granted them immortality.
Consider this: if you a believer, suppose the Lord manifested to you one way or the other. Just as he visited some ministers and sent them out to perform miracles and signs in his name, and they knew God visited them by an Angel or whatever, and it boosted their confidence. They were reported to have performed great miracles and wonders in his name. They were so bold in their faith against any disease, because the Angel of God was standing by them to do the wonders. Now think of it that way. Suppose God manifested to you and he told you personally that he had granted you immortality, and you believe it. How will your faith change from that day? We all know what immortality means -- that the man shall never die physically! If God manifested to you in a visitation one morning and told you he has granted you immortality. How will your boldness change? I believe it should change drastically, and your faith against danger will suddenly be noticeably high from that day forward. After that day, if a lion confronts you in the jungle, will you be afraid again like mortal men? When God had visited you as said before and you have believed what he told you that you have immortality, will you be afraid again like mortal men if an armed robber suddenly confronts you in the city, asking for your money or your life? I hope not! Think about that. If God told you he has granted you immortality, how drastically will your faith rise?
You should now understand how those Elijah saints at the end-time will be given the understanding of what the Lord has granted them. He will reveal to them, and they will know whom they are. This is what makes great faith. When God makes men know who they are with the Lord, not just the general assumption commonly read in the bible, but a personal revelation of their place in the global plan of God. When the Lord Jesus came to the world, he knew who he was. John the Baptist even knew where he fitted in the scriptures. When God raises up these end-time Elijah saints, and reveals to them that he has granted them immortality, will a lion in the way make them afraid? will a gun to their heads make them afraid? will an armed robber in the street make them afraid? No way! It makes a difference when God manifested to an individual and reveals to him what he has sent him to go accomplish.
This understanding that God will grant immortality to certain men in this last days before they go away is part of the mysteries in the thunders. But why will that be a secret? We usually assume the Devil should not know is the reason for the messages in the thunders to be kept a secret. That is not really the secret because the bible already bear witness to the fact that the army of God at the end-time will demonstrate immortality as written by prophet Joel. In Joel Chapter 2, the prophet described the army of God at the last days thus: "They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
Neither shall one trust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded." (Joel 2:7-8). That was immortality described. By being immortal, nothing can hurt them! Not a weapon! Not sword nor bullets! That is the scriptural evidence, that God is going to grant immortality to a company of saints! This is part of the mysteries in the seven thunders, that there will be immortal men, at this end-time, walking around among the mortals, for the great short work . The main secret is "how will God select these saints?" God actually is not selecting them! God already knew them before they came into this world. The issue is how they will know themselves and how God will bring them up to what he has created them for. The secret is for the devil not to recognize them till they have come of age.
Yea those that will go in the rapture are going to be immortal. At what stage then will the immortality be granted to them? Before the rapture? or at the instance of the rapture? or after the rapture? Some will know that they already have immortality before the rapture which will contribute to the leap of faith in them. Knowing that they are already immortal will make them run over swords and they shall not be wounded. Praise ye the Lord!
Yea the door is open. Do you want to be one of these Elijah-saints?
Yea, seek him who only has immortality, dwelling in a light which no man can approach unto, the only potentate, who has abolished death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. (2Tim.1:10). He is the Lord Jesus Christ!
Believe in him! God bless you. Amen!
