The sign is a sign that God will confirm his Covenant. That he will do what he said he would do.
This sign that God will fulfill his word, the prophetic scriptures is connected with the healing and the restoration of the church. This happens on the third day. This must take place during the millenium. After two days he will heal us, on the third day he will raise us up.
Hezekiah's illness parallels the tearing and the smiting of Hosea 6:1-3.
It is the judgment on the church that comes first. Then we will have redemption and restoration. This is the healing.
The Illness Hezekiah comes right after the Assyrian invasion of Judah and siege of Jerusalem. When the Lord hears Judah's cries for help and comes and devastates the Assyrian host. This is also an allegory of the judgment and redemption process. The Assyrian Host is like the Hordes of Hell!
"... When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19
An almost parallel passage is found in Matthew 16, here the Rock is Jesus the Headstone of the Church.
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Matt 16:18
The judgment and redemption process is a common theme all through the book of Isaiah. You can find it beginning with Isaiah 1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. And it is especially in Chap 28 & 29. See Lessons from The Duck Yard
Is it any wonder that He begins Chapter 40 with the words Comfort Ye My People? And end it with the famous passage - But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31! This is what it means to be healed and to be able to go up unto the house of the Lord.
Surely this is a description of the Church Redeemed and flowing in Full Revival!
To sum up what we've said so far, the Revelation of Jesus Christ will be a sign that God is about to Build his temple and bring in the great end time harvest of souls.
So now what is the sign of the Revelation of Jesus Christ? Or what are the signs? How will we know that this is happening?
Look back in the book of Revelation. We said that Jesus opening the scroll is the Revelation of Jesus Christ. What happens after each seal is broken, one by one? Great Judgments come forth.
Look in Psalm 9
The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands Ps
It says the Lord is known by the judgments. That is one of the ways He reveals Himself, through judgments. And these judgments are redemptive. They will bring the Latter Rain, and The Great Harvest. Isaiah 29 says:
With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. Isaiah 26:9
So God's Judgments in the Earth are a sign of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. And a sign He is confirming His Covenant and fulfilling scriptures. A sign that He is about to keep his promises.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28
