Didache Chapter 16, The Saints Passing Observations

It seems like this last chapter of the Didache has much for today’s God seeker.  Please allow the Spirit to reveal these truths in all their majesty.


Ch 16

1. “Watch” over your life “let your lamps” be not quenched “and your loins” be not ungirded, but be “ready,” for ye know not “the hour in which our Lord cometh.”
2. But be frequently gathered together seeking the things which are profitable for your souls, for the whole time of your faith shall not profit you except ye be found perfect at the last time;
3. For in the last days the false prophets and the corruptors shall be multiplied, and the sheep shall be turned into wolves, and love shall change to hate;
4. For as lawlessness increaseth they shall hate one another and persecute and betray, and then shall appear the deceiver of the world as a Son of God, and shall do signs and wonders and the earth shall be given over into his hands and he shall commit iniquities which have never been since the world began.
5. Then shall the creation of mankind come to the fiery trial and “many shall be offended” and be lost, but “they who endure” in their faith “shall be saved” by the curse itself.
6. And “then shall appear the signs” of the truth. First the sign spread out in Heaven, then the sign of the sound of the trumpet, and thirdly the resurrection of the dead:
7. But not of all the dead, but as it was said, “The Lord shall come and all his saints with him.”
8. Then shall the world “see the Lord coming on the clouds of Heaven.”

So when we die we see the sign, the lightning flash, and then we hear the blast of the trumpet, and then the resurrection of the dead, and finally we see the Lord coming into his Kingdom.

We know that the Lord came into his Kingdom long ago.  Some say this happened at  his resurrection and other say it was not until  AD 70, but the perceptive see that he already rules, that Babylon is fallen, that Laodicea is already vomited out from Christ’s mouth, but only when we pass will we all see the Lord coming on the clouds of Heaven!!

May His kingdom come, his will  be done on earth as it is in heaven!

God Bless
