There is a lot of confusion in the world today about the end-times, even in the Church. We are not unlike the two disciples who journeyed from Jerusalem to Emmaus on the day that Jesus was raised from the dead. In the midst of their confusion, they were unknowingly joined by the risen Master.
Luke’s gospel tells us that as they walked together, “Jesus expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.” When His true identity was revealed at the evening meal, He vanished from their sight. They exclaimed, “Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while he opened the Scriptures to us?”
Jesus appeared again later that same evening as more of the disciples were gathered together. Once again, “He opened their understanding that they might comprehend” what was prophesied about Him in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms (Luke 24:13-47). By the day’s end, the disciples were no longer in a state of confusion. They were in agreement concerning what the Scriptures said about His first coming.
Likewise, God’s agenda for this day and hour calls for a similar “opening of our understanding,” only this time, concerning what the Scriptures say about His second coming. This purposeful mission is intended to dispel our confusion concerning the end-times and unify His Bride for the next part of our mission—our heavenly calling.
This new Emmaus Road journey will appear to contain some new perspectives on the end-times. It must be said, however, that although these perspectives may be new to us, these things were commonly taught in the early church. Therefore, this end-time highway of understanding is not a new revelation, but a restoration of light that once burned brightly within the early church. This light was dimmed as the centuries passed. But the time has come for the light to dawn upon us again, only with even greater intensity than ever before.
It’s time to: “Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth; the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken” (Isaiah 40:3-5).
The calling to participate in this highway of truth has become the consuming passion of Chronos Ministries. We believe it will be the catalyst for one last great move of God on the earth through the Church before Jesus returns.
Chronos is the New Testament Greek word that refers to the chronological passage of time. In prophecy, it denotes a prophetic set time leading up to the fulfillment of a future prophetic event so marked by God. Jesus told us multiple times that He would come at the last Day to raise us up (the rapture). The last Day is the 7th Day in God’s prophetic great Week. We are nearing the end of the 6th Day.
Hebrews 10:25 says we are to see that Day—the 7th Day—approaching. Have your eyes been opened yet to understand God’s agenda and His chronos timing?
