Meaning Of One Hour

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hi T____,

Thank you for your question, and thanks even more for your input into this study of the revelation of Jesus Christ. I had never made the connection which the holy spirit has given you between the one hour borne by God’s elect and the one hour in which Babylon falls.
This too, is intended to be read, heard and kept as the kingdom of God is growing and destroying the kingdoms of this earth and filling this earth within us.
The hardest thing for the natural man to do is to see that none of this is spoken in words “which man’s wisdom teaches”, but it is written in words which “compare spiritual things with spiritual”, meaning that we understand that in order to live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, we are all first guilty of complaining about the elect and their special relationship with God and persecuting them, before we become those very elect and show mercy to our brothers whom we were just like only yesterday.
As we have seen earlier, horns typify power. Being on the beast, they are the power of the beast. Our beast is what delivers us out of Babylon, generally because we realize Babylon has been illegally placing a tithing tax upon us. God told Abraham to leave his father’s house and Ur, which is a type of Babylon. But who actually took Abraham out of Ur? It was Terah who led Abraham out of Ur.

Gen 11:31  And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

This in spite of what we are told had happened in the next chapter:

Gen 12:1  Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

Terah represents our “old man”, our “first man Adam”. Just as we do when we first “come out of Babylon”, the great harlot, Abram was led out of Ur by the beast himself, his “old man”. Instead of leaving his “old man” and going straight to Canaan, like all of us, Abram left Ur with his old man still intact, went only half way to Canaan and settled in Haran, on the same side of the Euphrates as was Ur. So Ur was still in Abram until his father, as a type of our “old man”, finally died. Only then did he leave Haran and go into Canaan.

Gen 12:4  So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
Gen 12:5  And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

Now there is no time wasted in leaving Haran, our halfway to Canaan stop, which actually has us still on the wrong side of the river, “the flood”.

Jos 24:2  And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.

This leaving of Haran after the death of Terah, is our “one hour” in the destruction of Babylon. We are still “carnal babes” having Lot still attached to us. Abram is now in the land of promise, but the flesh of his father’s house is still clinging to him in the form of his uncle’s son, Lot. “And Lot went with him.” He is still Abram and has not yet been changed to Abraham. It all takes time, but the time it takes to leave Haran is short, and it is in disgust against all that Ur and Haran represent.
This all demonstrates that it is we who are first Babylon, complaining of the elect, and are then the horns who are filled with disgust towards what we ourselves were just yesterday.  Then we are destroyed by the Lamb in one hour.  It is a short work that the Lord does, but we read, hear and keep every word.

Rom 9:28  For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
Rev 1:1  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified [ it] by his angel unto his servant John:

It truly is a “short work” that will “shortly come to pass”, but while we are in this flesh, it seems like a lifetime, because that is what it is.
Thanks for sharing with me what the Lord has shown you, and let me know what you think of all these verses.
God bless you as you look behind you to see this revelation of Jesus Christ.

Rev 1:10  I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
Rev 1:12  And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

Your brother in Christ,
