Clarence Larkin teken die laaste dae se afspeel en korrelasie tussen Daniel en Openbaring baie goed. Hy beeld dit goed uit vir iemand wat in die 1920’s oorlede is. Sy begrip van die beskouing van die Skrif in verband met die laaste dae was veel beter as die meeste mense vandag. Ek praat nie van ongelowiges nie!
Sy plasing van die wegraping sou heel waarskynlik as hy vandag geleef het verder in die verdrukking in geplaas word en moontlik ook naby aan die 6de en 7de seël soos wat sekere mens op hierdie stadium dink. Die een rede waarom dit oorweeg word is dat ‘n metafoor vir die groot verdrukking ’n verwysing na die nag is. Dit is interessant dat daar verskeie verwysings is dat die Here in die nag sal terugkom! Die 10 meisies het geslaap voor hulle wakker gemaak is en hulle het lampe nodig gehad asook ekstra olie! Ekstra olie anders sal jy nie gereed wees nie.
Onthou die Here kan enige tyd vir ons afsonderlik kom en dan kom die Here weer vir die 2de keer en hierdie huidige dispensasie sal dan eindig soos ons dit ken. Soos ons die tyd sien nader kom moet ons erns maak met die Woord van die Here rondom die afspeel van hierdie gebeure rondom die laaste dae.
Mattheus 24:32 En leer van die vyeboom hierdie gelykenis: Wanneer sy tak al sag word en sy blare uitbot, weet julle dat die somer naby is.
Mattheus 24:33 So weet julle ook, wanneer julle ál hierdie dinge sien, dat dit naby is, voor die deur.
Mattheus 25:1 Dan sal die koninkryk van die hemele wees soos tien maagde wat hulle lampe geneem en uitgegaan het om die bruidegom te ontmoet.
American Baptist pastor, Bible teacher, and writer, Clarence Larkin was born October 28, 1850, in Chester, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. He was born again at the age of 19 and then felt called to the ministry, but the doors of opportunity for study and ministry did not open immediately. He then got a job in a bank.
When he was 21 years old, he left the bank and went to college, graduating as a mechanical engineer. He continued as a professional draftsman for a while, then he became a teacher of the blind. This last endeavor cultivated his descriptive faculties — something God would later use in him to produce a monumental work on dispensational theology. Later, failing health compelled him to give up his teaching career. After a prolonged rest, he became a manufacturer.
But he was not happy. He felt that God wanted him in the ministry. When he was converted he had become a member of the Episcopal Church, but in 1882, at the age of 32, he became a Baptist and was ordained as a Baptist minister two years later. He went directly from business into the ministry.
His first charge was at Kennett Square, Pennsylvania; his second pastorate was at Fox Chase, Pennsylvania, where he remained for 20 years. He was not a premillennialist at the time of his ordination, but his study of the Scriptures, with the help of some books that fell into his hands, led him to adopt the premillennialist position. He began to make large wall charts, which he titled, “Prophetic Truth,” for use in the pulpit. These led to his being invited to teach, in connection with his pastoral work, in two Bible institutes. During this time he published a number of prophetical charts, which were widely circulated.
When World War I broke out in 1914, he was called on for addresses on The War and Prophecy. Then God laid it on his heart to prepare a work on Dispensational Truth (or God’s Plan and Purpose in the Ages), containing a number of charts with descriptive matter. He spent three years of his life designing and drawing the charts and preparing the text. The favorable reception it has had since it was first published in 1918 seems to indicate that the world was waiting for such a book.
Because it had a large and wide circulation in this and other countries, the first edition was soon exhausted. It was followed by a second edition, and then, realizing that the book was of permanent value, Larkin revised it and expanded it, printing it in its present form. Larkin followed this masterpiece with other books: Rightly Dividing the Word, The Book of Daniel, Spirit World, Second Coming of Christ, and A Medicine Chest for Christian Practitioners, a handbook on evangelism.
Larkin, a kind and gentle man, deplored the tendency of writers to say uncharitable things about each other, so he earnestly sought to avoid criticisms and to satisfy himself with simply presenting his understanding of the Scriptures. Though he did not intend to publish his own works, the Lord led in that direction. During the last five years of his life, the demand for Larkin’s books made it necessary for him to give up the pastorate and devote his full time to writing. He went to be with the Lord on January 24, 1924.
