Rev 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. Rev 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. Rev 6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. Rev 6:4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. It is not Jesus that takes away “the peace” it is our choice to accept or vex His Holy Spirit that is being poured out on all flesh.
When I began to hear voices from the Beasts in Heaven, saying, “Come and see,” I was taking a poetry class at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. The first thing the instructor, writer, poet said was, “Listen for the change in voices” in poetry. John saw the Lamb open the seal he heard thunder, and one of the four beasts.
Messages coming from heaven, via the Four Beasts around the Throne of God, The Calf, the Lion, the One like the Son of God, and the Eagle, are messages we have waited to hear . . .since 1844 when Jesus Christ our High Priest, entered the Most Holy. There had to come a time, when Heaven would vote for Michael or Lucifer. 1Co 6:3 “Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?”
In order to hear these voices saying, “Come and see,” it would follow, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is found “worthy” to be the 7 eyed, 7 horned, Lamb of God, who has washed his robe, in the blood, that brings us salvation, as we trust in Him by faith, to end the reign of terror started by Lucifer in heaven.
If you are seeing God’s Government, given power, to the Michael the Arch Angel to “Take peace from the earth,” that his enemies, kill his enemies, then you can be sure, Lucifer has been judged and is out TO DESTROY! His name in English is in Revelation 9:11. Lucifer is The Destroyer!
As a general principal the Old Testament puts God as our enemy. Isa 63:10 “But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.” That is how the King of Babylon received power to destroy Jerusalem. God’s people vexed His Holy Spirit. Jesus is on the White Horse do we love Him or fear Him? He will do what He says He will do! He will save to the utmost!
It is most appreciated that during this time God sends His Angel, His Arch Angel Michael to guide us through the Time of Trouble. God returns with the voice of the Archangel, Michael to some, and Jesus to others.
The Jews who killed Jesus, will be responsible for their actions. The High Priests, Judas, and Pilate all had a part in being able to stand up and defend Jesus Christ an innocent Jew. They will be alive, to see Jesus coming again. There will be special resurrection before Jesus comes. Daniel 12:2.
Continue reading Revelation 6. Jesus is our best friend or worst enemy. We must decide who we worship. Our Creator or our selves and god our choosing.
“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. (Revelation 6:1-2)
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER 9-11-2001?
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Rev 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. Rev 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Rev 18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. Rev 18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Rev 18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. Rev 18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: Rev 18:12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, Rev 18:13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. Rev 18:14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. Rev 18:15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, Rev 18:16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! Rev 18:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, Rev 18:18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! Rev 18:19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
God has seen the desolation of His Kingdom, they have killed His saints and prophets. Dan 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
Dan 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Dan 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. Dan 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Dan 12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. Dan 12:13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
ONE NATION. . .no longer UNDER GOD. . .stands judged, and desolate, bankrupted.
“And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.” (Daniel 12:7)
The man in linen, is the same description as Jesus Christ our High Priest and the Angel who stands up in Revelation, reveals himself as Jesus Christ Our Messiah, the 7 horned, 7 eyed, Lamb of God worthy to open the 7th Seal in Revelation 8.
Isa 63:8 For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour.
Isa 63:9 In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
Isa 63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.
Isa 63:11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him? Isa 63:12 That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name? Isa 63:13 That led them through the deep, as an horse in the wilderness, that they should not stumble? Isa 63:14 As a beast goeth down into the valley, the Spirit of the LORD caused him to rest: so didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name. Isa 63:15 Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of thy holiness and of thy glory: where is thy zeal and thy strength, the sounding of thy bowels and of thy mercies toward me? are they restrained? Isa 63:16 Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting. Isa 63:17 O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants’ sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. Isa 63:18 The people of thy holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary.
Isa 63:19 We are thine: thou never barest rule over them; they were not called by thy name.
How did we become “called,” people who were not called by Thy Name?
We we called by Jesus Christ, the Son of Mary, born in Bethlehem, raised in Nazareth, wandered the earth, near Galilee, Our Messiah and Saviour, to be His His Witnessess, Our High Priest, and we to be a part of His Priesthood of believers. He came according the Prophecies in Daniel, to the right place at the right time.
“Woe to finger on the hand of the man who finds The Messiah in Daniel.” the Jews say. Why did they fear to see Jesus, the Son of God, with 24 living chromosomes? Their leaders told them to “Worry not.” But the Jews have known Our Messiah is guarding His Law, in the cave, where they found the blood of Our Messiah on the westward side of the Ark of the Covenant.
Why do we fear to see the Law of God written by His Finger on the Tablets of Stone? Can it be Our Creator, created earth in 6 literal days, and began the Sabbath at Sundown on Friday night? Shabat Shalom. Have the Jews something to teach us amid the terrorist’s attacks on the families and friends, both Jews, Muslims and Christians?
MICHAEL STANDS UP IN DANIEL 12 to protect and defend God’s people!
Prophecy of Ellen G. White about “Occupy Wall Street”
In India, China, Russia, and the cities of America, thousands of men and women are dying of starvation. The moneyed men, because they have the power, control the market. They purchase at low rates all they can obtain, and then sell at greatly increased prices. This means starvation to the poorer classes, and will result in a civil war.There will be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation. “And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation, even to that same time; and at that time thy people shall be delivered, everyone that shall be found written in the book. . . . Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried;but the wicked shall do wickedly, and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.”–MS 114, 1899. MR No. 325 1899.
It will lead to a civil war.
Michael and his angels are there with their White Horses, ready to scoop you up, and let you ride with “your angel” to safety!
“Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. (Exodus 23:20-22)
“For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.” (Isaiah 30:19)
It seems as though we too, like Adam an Eve have a choice to obey or not obey our angels. Have I learned how to discern between good and evil?
Before He comes, we will have made up your mind to follow Jesus Christ Our High Priest, when He returns with the voice of Michael the Archangel. Your sins are being put on the head of Lucifer as you confess them to Jesus Christ, you vindicate His Law and Prophets.
“it is “Unto them that look for Him” that Christ is to “appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” Hebrews 9:28.
“The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?” (Jeremiah 8:9)
Oh, what a lesson is this wonderful story repeating, The angel hovers for a time over the chosen city and the temple, where the divine presence has been manifested for ages but even here is the same indifference. The priests, in their pomp and pride, are offering polluted sacrifices in the temple. The Pharisees are with loud voices addressing the people or making boastful prayers at the corners of the streets. In the palaces of kings, in the assemblies of philosophers, in the schools of the rabbis, all are alike unmindful of the wondrous fact which has filled all heaven with joy and praise – that the Redeemer of men is about to appear upon the earth.
How we watch with criminal indifference, the death of men, women and children, preferring death over disobedience to Jesus Christ their King and God their Father in the Middle East.
“How it rebukes our unbelief, our pride and self-sufficiency. How it warns us to beware, least by our criminal indifference we also fail to discern the signs of the times, and therefore know not the day of our visitation.” Ellen White p. 314-315, The Great Controversy.
I have seen more faith in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit’s ability to heal the sick, raise the dead, and celebrate life, than those who claim to be “The Chosen,” who seem to forget, Jesus Christ is, all power, all might, all healing is in His Wings!
“Then the people rejoiced, for that they offered willingly, because with perfect heart they offered willingly to the LORD: and David the king also rejoiced with great joy. Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever. Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.” (I Chronicles 29:9-13)
Am I willing to die like the Christians being slaughtered in the Middle East? Die for who? Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of My Salvation? Are the ancient ones showing us the way, to honor God above all men, all nations?
David knew from experience, how God had preserved his life, when Saul was attempting to kill him. David was assured by experience, that God’s hand is power and might and in His hands it is to make great and to give strength to all!
May we learn how to reach out and grasp that HAND, as our angel comes by to sweep us off our feet, and put us on his White Horse, that goes out under the direction of Jesus Christ our High Priest, to end this conflict between Michael the Archangel/ Jesus Christ and Lucifer.
Your vote for good over evil, is vote the places your sins, on the head of Lucifer!
The Scapegoat is being judged by your decision for Jesus Christ or The Destroyer!
The difference between good to rule over evil, is in your hands. Giving GOD the rulership over the Universe merely states, His Ten Laws require dignity and respect for His Government, that rules by Justice and a God who can read your mind and motives for your actions.
Who will you pick as the winning coach for your team?
Will you ride with your angel, and be a messenger of peace to those who secure their salvation by being loyal to His Kingdom? He has a White Horse and He knows your name, where you live and how to protect and defend you!
I crown Jesus Christ my King, daily. I pray for Him to send out His angels to talk and guide you!
“Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, [Jesus Christ] seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” (Hebrews 7:25)
“How is God reconciled to man? – By the work and merit of Jesus Christ, who . . .put aside everything that would interpose between man and God’s pardoning love. The law that man has transgressed is not changed to meet the sinner in his fallen condition, but is made manifest as the transcript of Jehovah’s character, – the exponent of His holy will, – and is exalted and magnified in the life and character of Jesus Christ. Yet a way of salvation is provided; for the spotless Lamb of God is revealed as the One who taketh away the sin of the world. Jesus stands in the sinner’s place, and takes the guilt of the transgressor upon Himself. Looking upon the sinner’s Substitute and Surety, the Lord Jehovah can be just, and yet be the justifier of him that believeth in Jesus. To him who accepts Christ as his righteousness, as his only hope, pardon is pronounced; for God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. The justice, truth, and holiness of Christ, which are approved by the law of God, form a channel through which mercy may be communicated to the repenting, believing sinner.
“Those who do not believe in Christ are not reconciled to God;but those who have faith in Him, are hid with Christ in God. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
“He became the sin-bearer and died on the cross to secure salvation for every sinner who repents and returns to his loyalty to God. Only through Christ can we obtain access to the Father.
“Jesus says, “Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” Christ takes upon Him the sins of the transgressor, and imputes to him His righteousness, and by His transforming grace makes him capable of associating with angels and communing with God.”
“So when they had dined, (a rare word for a fish fry on the beach) Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.” (John 21:15)
Many wish to escape the intricate tangle of life’s demands that enmeshed them, which in our present condition we are unable to unravel. When a holy man shows up, fingers point the blame at God. When in our hearts there is a desire to make sense of chaos. There seems to be a disconnect from man to His Higher Power. Yet we feel an innate ability within ourselves to become a better person.
When I was child, my dad came home and said to the family at the dinner table, “I suppose you are going to blame me for genes.” But to us, our dad wearing jeans and the play on words made us laugh. Do you have your mom and dad’s genes, or do you have something more, something better within you, that wants to get out?
Our friend the dentist had a punching bag hanging from his garage. He had to let something out, to pound away, to get exercise in some positive way. Why this restlessness? Truly it seems to be in our genes. We need exercise, yes but what is this something more we crave?
But what if this chaos is just what I need? Confusion, babel, words but no life, a kind of temporary joy, with no long term relationship? And I go to the church, to the synagogue, to the Mosque and find there is always some one their ready to voice their opinion about who is to blame. Truly good people, having a way to fix the tranquility that went away when a new cog is trying to work its way into the gears of our minds, to find a place to put, that little stubborn gear, that seems to have a mind of its own.
Meshing together, mingling together, requires a family. And the Manager of the Denver Post Printing Press, had to merge the men into thinking each one he hired was essential to the rest of the operation. He said, “Blessed is the man who goes around in circles for he shall be called . . . The Big Wheel. With a philosopher for a dad, a manager of men at work, He came home and night and took off his managing hat. He threw his cap down and when Mom said, “Dinner’s ready,” Moolie, our nickname for our dad, “Sat down.”
It doesn’t take much to tire of wrangling cows, sheep and goats to figure out each one has certain personality, and its best to know which one is going to butt you when you turn your back. There is always some playful goat, looking for a chance to push something around. And when your kids, it’s just “natural” to push back. But in our family, these romps and games were measured by how we made sure no one would get hurt when we play. Playing was fun and the oldest taught the younger, that we want to make sure, we don’t intentionally step on someone when we wrestle.
So what took the fun out of a rumble? What turned a game into war? What made men want something more, so they came out to destroy instead of enjoying the game? I like baseball, because their is an umpire. And you can disagree with a call, but sometimes in life, we might no like to hear The Call. That’s Life! That makes us part of the human race, 666, not quite God. But a game or playing without rules is total confusion!
And here is the possibility that we have to figure out, if I, Connie, personally like myself enough, to not want to rock the boat? Someone might fall out, and get hurt. Or, am I like Peter, the guy who saw Jesus did it, walking on water, and I wonder if I can too? Dare I get out of the boat? Dare I speak my mind and find, you pointing at me and stoning a disciple, wanting to know if I can. . .be accepted into the Family of God?
Where do we fit in our universe? When we meet, eat and play together, will I fit in? Or will my words turn you away from our friendship? And you fear to know the 5’3″ old lady whose more interested in having fun within boundaries that giving up on JOY!
There is an old lady in our church, who seems to go to bed thinking up what she can do, to tease the kids, the adults, and keep everyone wondering what’s she gonna do next? We used to say, “Spice up your life.” And my life has been well spiced! It just takes one or two goof balls to make life, spiced up, with a snicker, as they laugh at their selves, riding down the bannister of Life!
I think that’s why wearing a Red Hat and being silly is essential to my Life. Being a grown up old lady with red shoes and purple scarf, isn’t about drawing attention to myself, but seeing the smile on your face, knowing you like to see someone having Fun!
The silent killer is staking out your house, wanting you to fear, imaging something evil, about to pounce! Behind ever negative thought, is a demon who tries to freeze your thoughts and make a play on WORDS, that God cannot save you.
However, Jesus gave us the gifts of His Holy Spirit, because of His love for all mankind, the day He died, Jesus seeing you, and wanting to have you beside Him, in Heaven. A safe place to play, to dive into a pool, that is cool, clear and friendly. A bear that won’t hurt you. A flower that won’t die. Friends who won’t lie about what a great friend we have in Jesus.
Would you like to know what else the Bible says about Michael, the “great prince.” who could so
readily rout the demon prince of Persia? Who is the formidable but friendly person?
Daniel 10:13 call him “one of the chief princes” ; but according to what the Bible says elsewhere, this identification is an understatement.
Jude 9 calls Michael “the archangel” an expression that means the “the chief angel.” Michael is “the” archangel, the chief angel. Folk stories have created several “archangels”; but in the Bible there is only one, the archangel Michael.
Michael, a holy Being. in the Hebrew the name Michael is invisible warfare that began long ago to be waged between right and wrong, Michael commanded the angels of God in driving the angels of Satan out of heaven.
Michael, the LORD (Yahweh). In the conversation that followed at the shrub, the Person in the flames identified Himself
Joshua met this came Commander of the angels prior to the battle of Jericho and learned that He is a very holy Person. Seeking help through prayer previous to his assault on Jericho, Joshua suddenly observed a soldier standing ahead of him, sword in hand. “Are you for us, or for our adversaries?” he challenged. And the soldier replied, “As commander of the army of the Lord I have now come. . . .Put off your shoes from your feet; for the the place on which you are standing is holy.” (Joshua 5:13-5)
You already know that Moses was once told to take off his shoes because the ground he occupied was holy. Moses was standing by a blazing shrub that miraculously didn’t burn up. A voice from the fire commanded him, “Put off your shoes from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” (Exodus 3:5)
Michel, the LORD (Yahweh). in the conversation that followed at the shrub, the Person in the flames identified Himself to Moses as “the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” Exodus 3:6. He also identified Himself as “I AM WHO I AM” – that is, the as the Lord, Yahweh, or Jehovah. Exodus 3:14,16. But Exodus 3:2, in introducing the account of this great event, states that is was “the angel of the LORD” who appeared to moses in the flaming bush.
Can angel be God? Can God be an angel?
What is an angel? The word “angel” literally means “messenger.” God has many messengers. You and I, erring humans, can be angels in this sense! The spies whom Joshua sent to examine Jericho in preparation for this attack are called “messengers” in English but “angels” in Greek. (James 2:25)
The supreme Messengers, the supreme Person sent to earth with a message, is Jesus Christ. In His prayer on the way to the cross (John 17), He referred to Himself as “Jesus Christ whom thou [God] has sent. Verse 3, In the same prayer He referred to Himself and the Father as being “one”. Verse 11. In the heavenly Trinity, Jesus, God’s Son, is as truly divine as God the Father is. Both are eternal and both bear the “family” name, Yahweh, Jehovah, I AM. But Jesus is the Messenger, the very special “Angel” sent out by the Father.
Jesus is the Angel of His presence (Isaiah 63:9) and the Angel who redeems us (Genesis 48:16)
At the second coming the voice of the archangel signals the resurrection of the dead, according to I Thessalonians 4:16. And according to John 5:28, 29, it is the “voice of the Son of God” that raises the dead. Daniel 12:1-4 says that when Michael arises at the end of time, “many of those who sleep in the dust shall awake.”
Michael, the gloried Christ. Now, if the Lord Jesus is Michael, then the magnificent Being who brightness almost overpowered Daniel at the opening vision of of Daniel 10 was also Michael.
The fact of His being Michael is obscured in the R.S.V. by a regrettable rendering of Daniel 10:13, which seems to say that in order for Gabriel to make his visit to Daniel, he had to leave Michael for a while to continue the fight with the prince of Persia. The implication in the R.S. V. is that Gabriel came by himself to see Daniel. A further unfortunate implication is that bring Being in the vision was not Michael but Gabriel.
The Interpreter’s Bible, rightly points out that the simplest translation of the Hebrew is “seeing that I was left there,” meaning that the verse says nothing at all about Gabriel’s leaving Michael alone but instead that Gabriel had been working alone until Michael came to help him. Happily, a number of versions do translate the verse this way. “For I [Gabriel] had been left there with the kings of Persia” is the translation in the N. A.S.B. “Because I was detained there with the king of Persia.” says the N.I.V. “Because I had been left alone in Persia,” reads Today’s English Version.
The value of knowing this. And what is the value of knowing that Michael is not a created being but is, in fact, or divine Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ?
For one thing, this knowledge helps us to keep the vision of Daniel 10-12 in proper perspective. The vision begins with a revelation of Jesus in His glory. It ends with a revelation about Jesus at the second coming. The history (of the world) here presented begins and ends with Lord of history. Once more we are reminded that God cares, that He is in control.
“Knowing that Michael is Jesus also help us to member that the principal focus of Daniel’ s prophecies is neither on Antiochus Epiphanes nor the antichrist. We must never forget this, or we are in danger of strange and unnecessary blunders. The focus is always on Jesus Christ. Jesus is the supernatural stone of Daniel 2. He is the Son of man who comes on the clouds in Daniel 7. He is the Messiah Prince who is cut off in the seventh-week prophecy, who none the less causes His covenant to prevail.
And isn’t it good to know that when the angel in Daniel 10:21 calls Michael “your prince,” he means that Jesus is our Prince? And when in Daniel 12:1 he calls Michael “the great prince who has charge of your people,” he is reminding us that the Son of God Himself has the affairs of of His church in hand?
It’s good to be on the side of the winner. It’s good to remember that our Leader is not merely a world champion; He is the universal Champion! he is also a General who has never lost a war and who never will!
Even this isn’t all. If Jesus is the chief Angel, the General of heavens armies, He is in command of heaven’s countless angels, some millions of whom Daniel observed assembling in the heavenly sanctuary at the beginning of the pre-advent judgment. Daniel 9, 10. Hebrews 1:14 tells us that the good angels are “ministering spirits sent forth to serve,” for the sake of those who are to obtain salvation.”
This is good news. To think that powerful, friendly angels are sent to answer our prayers, just as they were sent to answer Daniel’s prayers long ago.
The bad new is that Satan, too, leads an army of angels (Revelation 12:7) – fallen, evil angels – and that at their head he “prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” I Peter 5:8.
We have seen that demon spirits seek to dominate the affairs of nations. It is not fanciful to assume that Satan assigns angels to be demon princes of cities as well. Isaiah 14 talks about the “king” that is, the demon prince, of the city of Babylon. Ezekiel 28 talks about the “king” or demon prince , of the city of Tyre.
No wonder Paul urges us to pray, as a matter of first importance for everyone in a position of community leadership. I Timothy 2:1-4. Every Christian ought o be a Daniel, praying regularly and earnestly that Jesus Christ (that is Michael) will commission angles to contend with the demons who every day seek to control the nation and city where he lives.
And the home where he lives too.
Have you ever wondered why you speak angrily to the people you love the best? Or why your children are at times unbearably rude? Have you ever wondered if the paperbacks you read and the TV shows your family watches are not so many doorways through which demons invade your home?
Because of the “spiritual hosts of wickedness” who try to control us, Paul urges every Christian to clothe himself in the whole armor of God (see Ephesians 6:12-18). He adds in verse 18, “Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication . . .Keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.”
“Keep alert with all perseverance,” Satan’s angels can be determined and very stubborn. One resisted Gabriel for three weeks. It is good that Daniel kept on praying.
In Bible times an enemy army encircled the city of Dothan by night, hoping in a few days to plunder the place, and enslave the population. Elisha the prophet lived in Dothan and, like Daniel, was a man of prayer.
“Fear not,” replied Elisha. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them”
It was time for Elisha’s morning prayer. Compassionately he asked the Lord to “open his [servants} eyes.” When they rose from their knees and looked outdoors, to young man’s utter joy and total wonderment, he saw that on this side of the city and on that side of the city and in whatever direction he looked “the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:15-17.
Jesus has angels to outnumber any force Satan can bring against us! And He’ll send them at once to our rescue as He did for Daniel. If we pray, the words will be come true in our case as they were in Elisha’s, “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
God has not promised to keep us from all harm but He has promised to sustain us in every trial (Isaiah 41:10) and to help us avoid falling into sin (Jude 24).
“Keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication.”
Every morning, before anyone leaves for the day, should not your family bow in prayer? Together, with the children, if at all possible? And again at bedside before going to sleep at night?
Your prayer at first can be simple, but is should be n earnest. To bulid faith it should contain a Bible promise or some reflection of God’s goodness.
“Dear Father in heaven, ” you might say. “We thank You for telling us in the Bible about Your love and about how much You care for us.
“Forgive us for not responding as we should.
“Bless our family today. Help us to be cheerful, like Daniel, when people are unkind to us. Help us to be consistently thoughtful and honest and true.
“Please send Your mighty angels to protect us, all day in all danger, and to keep us from every sin.
“What we ask for ourselves, we ask also for every Christian, for our nation, and for the city where we live.
“We ask it, trusting in Jesus as our Saviour.

What prayer can do!
Vera on the left, picked me up from the hospital February 3, my birthday! She was taken to the hospital the next day, February 4. Little known to Vera, who is just out of the Good Samaritan Hospital, we just proved an amazing fulfillment of prophecy that points us back to the Message of Daniel 10.
She dropped dead in front of her daughter, falling backwards and hitting her head on a cement floor. The ambulance was there in two minutes, [a miracle] they applied the “paddles” she came back to life. [miracle] Twice in the ambulance, she died and the “paddles” brought her back to life. [two more miracles] At the Hospital they put her on life support! The children put her in God’s hands and they removed the breathing tube. [another miracle].
I got a phone call. “Connie this is Vera.” “May I pray for you?” I asked. “Why do think I called you?” she laughed.
Before I dig into the Message of Michael standing up in Daniel 10, I want to assure you, Vera is receiving calls. She has lost her short term memory. Today she found out, why her throat is sore, because they removed the breathing tube. Her car was fixed, that was nothing she had to worry about, but she didn’t remember driving the mechanics van or paying the bill. Shock had taken over her mind.
You know there is nothing the devil hates more, than two old ladies and their family and ffriends praying for those they love! When we mention the name of Jesus, the devil trembles! He knows he and his angels are doomed to the fires of hell! If he can’t have the earth, he will destroy it as well!
No wonder the devil wanted to get the prayers out of the schools! What will happen when Doctors and Nurses, can’t pray for their patients? Is there really an atheist a fox hole? And what happens when we take prayer out of the Federal Buildings?
THE MESSAGE OF DANIEL 10 means Jesus is Coming Again, Why don’t we pray, before we all lose our way?
Daniel is open. Michael has Stood up to protect and defend God’s people. Why don’t you call on Him! He has billion of angels to send you in answer to your prayers!
“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” (Proverbs 28:13)
The Intercession of Christ
“The intercession of Christ in man’s behalf in the sanctuary above is as essential to the plan of salvation as was His death upon the cross. By His death He began that work which after His resurrection He ascended to completed in heaven. We must must by faith enter within the veil, “whither the forerunner is for us entered.” (Hebrews 6:20.) There the light from the cross of Cavalry is reflected. There we may gain a clearer insight into the mysteries of redemption. The salvation of man is accomplished at an infinite expense to heaven; the sacrifice made is equal to the broadest demands of the broken law of God. Jesus has opened the way to the Father’s throne, and through His mediation these sincere desires of all who come to Him in faith may be presented before God.
“He that covers his sins shall not prosper; but whosoever confesses and forsakes them shall have mercy.” (Proverbs 28:13). If those who hide and excuse their faults could see how Satan exalts over them, how he taunts Christ and holy angels with their course, they would make haste to confess their sins and to put them away. Through defects in the character, Satan works to gain control of the whole mind, and he knows that if these defects are cherished, he will succeed. Therefore he is constantly seeking to deceive the followers of Christ with his sophistry that is is impossible for them to overcome. But Jesus pleads in their behalf His wounded hands, His bruised body; and He declares to all who would follow Him: “My grace is sufficient for thee.” 2 Corinthians 12:9. “Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:29,30. Let none, then, regard their defects as incurable. God will give faith and grace to over come them.
“We are now living in the great day of atonement. In the typical service, while the high priest was making the atonement for Israel, all were required to afflict their souls by repentance of sin and humiliation before the Lord, lest they be cut off from the among the people. In like manner, all who would have their names retained int he book of life should now, in the few remaining days of their probation , afflict their souls before God by sorrow for sin and true repentance. There must be deep, faithful searching of heart. The light frivolous spirit indulged by so many professed Christians must be put away. There is earnest warfare before all who would subdue the evil tendencies that strive for the mastery. The work of preparation is an individual work. We are not saved in groups. The purity and devotion of one will not offset the want of these qualities in another. Though all nations are to pass in judgment before God, yet He will examine the case of each individual with as close and searching scrutiny as if there we not another being upon the earth. Everyone must be tested and found without spot or wrinkle of any such thing. [It is our love for Jesus, in a relationship with Him, that makes it possible to understand, truly, He had borne our griefs and knows our sorrows. It is out of love, that we choose to die, defending His name. Just as much as the terrorist defends their god of force and torture, we defend Our God, who gives us freedom to choose good over evil.]
“Solemn are the scenes connected with the closing work of the atonement. Momentous are the interests involved therein. The judgment is now passing in the sanctuary above. For many years this work has been in progress. Soon~none know how soon~it will pass to the cases of the living. In the awful presence of God our lives are to come up in review. At this time above all others it behooves every soul to heed the Saviour’s admonition, “Watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.” March 13:33. “If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.’
[Here is Jesus inviting each individual, to study and to watch! If we don’t watch, “thou shalt not know what hour I will come.”]
“When Jesus comes in the clouds of heaven, Christ in the Revelation, looking forward to the time, declares; “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be holy still. And behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” (Revelation 22:11,12)
“The righteous and the wicked will still be living upon the earth in their mortal state ~ men will be planting and building, eating and drinking, all unconscious that the final, irrevocable decision has been pronounced in the sanctuary above. Before the Flood, after Noah entered the ark, God shut him in and shut the ungodly out; but for seven days the people, knowing not that their doom was fixed, continued their careless, pleasure-loving life and mocked the warnings of impending judgment. “So” says the Saviour, “shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Matthew 24:39) Silently, unnoticed as the midnight thief, will come the decisive hour which marks the fixing of every man’s destiny, the final withdrawal of mercy’s offer to guilty men.
“Watch ye therefore: . . .lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping.” (Mark 13:35, 36.) Perilous is the condition of those who, growing weary of their watch, turn to the attractions of the world. While the man of business is absorbed in the pursuit of gain, while the pleasure lover is seeking indulgence, while the daughter of fashion is arranging her adornments – it may be in that hour the judge of all the earth will pronounce the sentence, “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.” (Daniel 5:27.) GREAT CONTROVERSY, by Ellen White p. 487-489.
As an X-Adventist, this is most disturbing. William Miller was first to discover the prophecies showing the “timing” of the judgment of God’s people, to come first. “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” (I Peter 4:17)
In the prophecies, it reads in symbols, men like trees and grass. “The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.” (Revelation 8:7) We know the devil has power to bring hail, fire and blood, death to men, and baby Christians, not watching for the hour of His judgment. The devil claims them as his own. The devil did convince a third of the angels to follow him out of heaven into this Controversy, so the “created angels” could prove they could or could not rule the earth.
By now we KNOW FOR SURE, we are not capable of being able to recreate the earth, ourselves, and conquer death. The question is to myself, “Is why is it so hard to be humble?” “Why is pride so hard to lay aside?” Being the middle child, I have nothing but respect and love for my brothers and sisters, who are talented in their own area of expertise. I desire nothing but the Lord to bless and keep them. However, at the dinner table, I admired my little sister for her wit, charm and ability to entertain us with jokes, let alone her recognition for being the Nurse Practitioner of the Year in California and a major contributor to getting out of Hospital by knowing of the new drug for shingles! My younger sister, Janet is very accomplished at teaching, she was a mentor to the teachers, growing orchids, and without children [of their own] they have turned to be members of the American Orchard Society and her husband is soon to be an official Orchard Judge. The accomplishments of my brother Franklin Ordelheide D.D.S. is far out of my league! He and family have spent 18 years between a Missionary Dentist in Guam, Hong Kong and Malawi. The Ordelheide family counted up 99 years of mission service at our family reunion.
I was the least on the totem pole. It is a privilege to be among the ones I want to meet and be with in heaven. They have all had bouts with cancer, suffering, self sacrifice and helping others. They understand! “We” cheer each other along the path, the road, sometimes the tarmac. We are sons and daughters of God. Humility? We need families to keep us humble! We were allowed to raise our hands and share what all we had learned that day. From the baby mice mother found at Grandma’s house, to the snake coming down the tree where Franklin was thinking of building a tree house. It was to notice, the rocks, to rock hunt the gems, that would take a polish and those that would not.
The Rock, is Jesus. If you question if you are ready for Jesus to come ~ “I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.” (Revelation 3:19) You don’t have to go to China, to be tested by God! You can invite Him to purify your character, but it does help if you let Him fan the fire, to light the way for His Second Coming of Our Messiah.
You see, I prayed that prayer not long ago. I found myself like Job, listening to God. Who made that Horse that does not flinch and is strengthen to fight the Battle without fear! FEARLESS LEADER, we have not yet begun to fight like Gideon, not by might, nor by power, but by THY Holy Spirit! We have the torch, we have the clay jars, yes we must bust them, and break out the LIGHT! JESUS IS COMING!
No. I’m not going to stone or bad mouth any prophet or prophetess. I think the devil does not want us to gather together, and compare notes, about how many are seeing visions and dreams and know Michael has stood up to protect those whose names are written in His Book!
“But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.” (Numbers 14:21)
“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.” (Daniel 7:25-27)
“Samuel said, “Speak Lord, Thy servant hears.”
Jesus says, “Send I you to labor unrewarded.”
Rev 15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
Rev 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
Rev 15:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
Great and marvellous are thy works,
Lord God Almighty;
Just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name?
For thou only art holy:
for all nations shall come and worship before thee;
for thy judgments are made manifest.
And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.
And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
“Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.” (Exodus 17:6)
Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. (Jude 1:9)
The Great ICON of Jesus is The Rock, that provides us our food and water. However the “Rock” of living Life, came to Israel and they did not recognize Him. Instead the “Chosen people,” wanted to BE THE ROCK. To be equal with God, who provides the bread and water for His Sons and Daughters, and animals in the wilderness, yesterday, today and tomorrow, IS A SIN!
Moses had no doubt GOD COULD PROVIDE! God has, is and will continue to provide our bread and water, and give us Eternal Life! His will is for us to “cover” out nakedness, to accept His Righteousness and humble ourselves to not take off, His Robe of His Righteousness.
There are some thing we can “undo” when the Holy Spirit shows us our sins. We can return what we have stolen, we can apologize for misrepresenting His Character, we can honor our parents because they did not live in our generation. We can be joyful because Jesus is the Rock, and He is the Real Rock, who does provide for our needs, if we do not take off the “Robe” He put on us, the DAY HE DIED, cleansing us with His blood, He made us, He created us, He wants us to become His Sons and Daughters.
How did Moses uncover his “own righteousness?” He disobeyed God. Moses was standing naked. Moses was disobedient. He has struck THE ROCK, Jesus Christ. Moses knew God would keep His Promise, and God would provide the water of life, and bring us the “Bread of Life,” but Lucifer would find a way to undermine the true purpose of God using man, 666, to guide his people, to SEE The Holy Spirit, Life, given by the Creator, is not man’s doing. Life, at birth is covered with the Robe of Christs Righteousness, by the blood of the Lamb. The Mother holds the child, the son the daughter in her arms, to become THE CHANNEL of light, of goodness of her children’s Holy Spirit, to be like Moses, a leader, a singer, a father a light to the World.
I ate a piece of rock candy. My tooth split. I had eaten candy that was so hard, it broke my front tooth. I was embrasassed and could not wait to smile again. I stopped eating ROCK CANDY!
The Jews “ate” the WORDS OF JESUS, but the spit them out! They spit in His face! They despised the One, who said, “EAT OF ME.”
They wanted to BE THE CANDY….THE AUTHORITY….EQUAL TO THE ROCK! instead when the “ate” the Words of Jesus, and mulled over why they hated him, it was because Jesus, The Rock, was turning over the “symbols” the Priesthood used, to point to JESUS, THE LIGHT, THE WAY into the heart of God, is to see HIS HOLY SPIRIT!
Some want to BE THE HOLY SPIRIT, they want to BE Equal with God! They have eaten ROCK CANDY! When we digest, the story of Jesus, letting people say, He was worthless, a worthless stone, they had not tasted, the joy of knowing Jesus.
I’ve eaten rock candy. I’ve eaten, seen and heard His Holy Spirit, at work in my life, when I truly search with all my heart, to find Him.
THIS IS A TRUE STORY:
“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”(Genesis 3:16) My husband ran off with another man’s wife. I am alone, sometimes isolated and rejected by “The Church.” I came to find, Jesus is My Bridegroom, my husband and I do desire Him to rule over me.
I asked God to give me a WORD, so when I’m confused I can use it. I understood the WORD was TRULY.
I went to bed and couldn’t sleep. Truly he has born my grief and sorrow.
Truly, by His death, He gave me a Robe of His Righteousness! Yes, I know I’m a created being and part of human race, 666 along with all my brothers and sisters He created.
I mulled over His Righteousness, as my only defense against Lucifer. I liked that!
Then I got a WORD. “Put on your coat and go.”
Now, I’m not used to talking with my angel! I do realize being sick, and isolated, has caused me to think more and do less.
I thought I had “put on His Robe of His Righteousness” But, I still couldn’t go to sleep. I put on robe and starting walking through the house. The West window is nice place to look out. But I saw puffs of smoke, like clouds, coming out a pipe, probably something to do with heater. I found myself downstairs, with furnace. I had a new filter, so I thought I’d just put a new one in.
I pulled the neat invention of Uncle Dale apart, and some idiot had forgotten to put a filter in. No problem, I just unwrapped a new filter, and slipped it in. But got stuck. Sure enough, the invention to hold the filter, was off kilter, there was already fulled loaded with dust one heavy filter, folded in half down there, in a slit about big enough for my fingers, but not my hand to get. It took a trip to get the flashlight, and knife and i was ready to get a chair and sit down and spend the night prying out the filter I could see with the flashlight.
Short story. I was told to put on my coat and go. . .I put on my Robe of His Righteousness. . .and walked down the steps to find my filter blocking the AIR! I think this might have something to do with why my heating bill was so high. The furnace was sucking so hard, trying to get AIR, it pulled the filter almost into the furnace.
WHEN: I became aware of Jesus being my Bridegroom, a friend to the lonely, my husband, I didn’t know that He cared about my furnace and air flow and heating bill. I just put on my robe and did like he said. I went. I just took a picture of the bent up filled up filter. I have the evidence.
But, this idea of having a conversation with my angel, is about as natural to me as a jet propulsion laboratory. When we put this kind of thing INTO CIRCULATION, that we can obey the still small voice, that Moses heard on Mount Sinai, they He cares about me putting on His Robe of His Righteousness, to go fix the circulation in My House. . .I wonder if that includes the air. . .the truth . . .the trash and lint and dust filling up my life. Giving me reason to doubt He cares?
