Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high. I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.

Three great periods of separation are, we think, clearly revealed in God’s Word: 1) “The separation of the chaff from the wheat,” Matt. 3:10,12; 2) “the tares from the wheat,” Matt. 13:37,43; 3) and “the sheep from the goats,” Matt. 25:31. The third great separation like the previous two cover a period of time yet future.
In the previous newsletter we discussed and identified the “beast” that rose out of the sea and was given suppressive power for forty-two months (1260 days). This newsletter is a continuation of the same chapter. We will seek to identify the “Two-horned Beast,” the “Image of the Beast,” the “Mark of the Beast,” and the “Number of a Man.”
Understanding who the “Beast” represents is very important to us today, because as we see in the second half of the chapter this beast comes back into persecuting power. If we do not understand who the characters in the book of Revelation represent, we will be “taken unawares,” and perhaps even be deceived into supporting something that is opposed to God and His purposes.
This newsletter takes a look at Ezekiel 34, a prophesy against the Priesthood of the people of God, who were supposed to be shepherding His flock. Instead of feeding and protecting the sheep, they were fleecing them.

The newsletter covers the importance of studying prophetic matters as well as the prophecy about the Fig tree and its application. When the Apostles ask Jesus what is the sign of his coming, one of the answers he gives them is the prophecy about the Fig Tree. By looking at other scriptures, and noting that when he cursed the fig tree and it withered, that was a pronouncement against Israel itself. So now with that in mind when he talks about the “Fig Tree” putting forth leaves, we understand that the curse against Israel is at an end and that God has further use and work for the Nation of Israel.
The fulfillment of prophecy is a strong testimony that the scriptures are from God. When time is included in prophecy, it adds a specificity which is even more impressive. How many unbelievers would be surprised to know that Daniel predicted five centuries in advance the very year of Christ’s baptism, and of his death?
All the longings of every Christian are summed up by John’s last words in Revelation when he says, “Even so, come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20). What rapture it will be when, “It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is shown in weakness; it is raised in power” (1 Corinthians 15:44)!
