We don’t have to wait until the end of time for the antichrist, Brother David Conrades said in his message on Sunday. Many antichrists precede the final one; all bring destruction, death, and despair. All these are dire and frightening things.

Often, when things are at their worst, that is when God intervenes and makes things right. Now, we see worshipers bombed and people murdered because of the color of their skin.

We cannot fully understand when God does intervene, Brother David said. His ways are higher than ours.

God is intervening in the second half of Revelation 6, Brother David said.

In these verses, John sees the souls of those who have been slain because of their testimony, and they cry out asking God how long until he avenges them that live on the earth.

God gives them white robes and has them wait until other are killed as they were.

Are the souls really under the altar, or is this symbolic, Brother David asked. There is no way to know, but it doesn’t matter, he said. Those who believe either way are Christians.

We have an idea of what we want God to be, Brother David said. But, he does everything according to his will and plan, and both are perfect.

Persecution of this age will continue until an appointed time, and God will not change that time.

Every Christian knows they will get to heaven and receive a white robe, which represents the purity of Christ.

We will receive white robes because Jesus has gained the victory for us.

All anyone has to do is to accept the sacrifice of Jesus.

“Have you accepted his offer,” Brother David asked.
