Because of Christ’s Righteous: We shall Inherit All Things

Image a request comes from YOUR KING, to meet with Him, eat with Him, and he has reserved your seat! GODS HOLY CITY, has a room for you, with a VIEW! Now this picture is too small, GODS HOUSE has room for ALL….

“He that overcometh shall inherit all things: and I will be his GOD and he shall be my sons and daughters.” Revelation 21:7

“In order to inherit all things, we must resist and overcome sin. The last great test is to decide your choice of eternal life by “who” you worship. A good God or an evil king?

“We may have joy in the Lord if we will keep His commandments. If we indeed have our citizenship above, and a title to an immortal inheritance, an eternal substance, we have that FAITH which words by LOVE and purifies the soul. . . .We are members of the heavnly family, children of the heavenly King, heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ. At His coming we shall have the crown of life that fadeth not away.

The monarch of heaven would have you possess and enjoy all that can ennoble, expand, and exalt your being and fit you to dwell with Him forever, your existence measuring with the life of God. What a prospect is the life which is to come! What charms it possesses! How broad and deep and measureless is the love of God manifested to man!

“The privilege’s granted to the children of God are without limit, –to be connected with Jesus Christ, who, throughout the universe of heaven and worlds that have not fallen, is adored by every heart, and His praises sung by every tongue; to be children of God, to bear His name, to become a member of the Royal Family; to be ranged under the BANNER OF PRINCE IMMANUEL, the King of kings and Lord of lords.

“The Son of God was the heir of all things, and the dominion and glory of the kingdoms of this world were promised to him. . . .Even as Christ was in the world, so are His followers. They are the sons and daughters of God, and joint heirs with Jesus; and the kingdom and dominion belong to them.

“In place of the world, He will give you, for a life of obedience, the kingdom under the whole heavens. He will give you an eternal weight of glory and a life that is as enduring as eternity.”

When you know Your Father, Your Mother and Your Brothers and Sisters love you…we can have a HAPPY FAMILY…in love for one another. It is LOVE that makes us happy.

Source of Life. . .Look to Nature, Science and Space

Water, and its diversity
Where water meets the Sky
Where the SEA meets the LAND
Enormous water falls making its way back to the sea
Diversity in design, color and nutrient sources. God can plant a flower in the desert.
Each animals reproduces after its own kind.

Let’s talk about flowers. . .a family joke. . .to change the subject. . .

God is ABLAZE, like FIRE, eager to display HIS POWER, to CREATE MANKIND, and BRING HIM BACK TO LIFE, after a sleep in the GRAVE.

One thing GOD can do and will repeat: Is raising two witnesses from their graves. . .

Rev 11:7  And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 
Rev 11:8  And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. (Jerusalem)
Rev 11:9  And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 
Rev 11:10  And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. 
Rev 11:11  And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 
Rev 11:12  And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 
Rev 11:13  And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. 

Mankind has destroyed the earth for lack of understanding . . . the “created” needs “THE CREATOR” and HE is either your BEST FRIEND or your worst enemy.

Doing “good” being a “good” person, trying to please those who step on you, is well understood, by a man without a home, called JESUS CHRIST, Our Messiah. GOD proved He can restore the image of CHRIST in you…by being part of HIS FAMILY…the three in one G-O-D loves you, because HE CREATED YOU.

Outside the window, a new morning is breaking, slowly over the blue colored snow, and if our planet would spin out of control, into the wild blue yonder, it would be frightening! So early man, developed large rocks, to place the light from the sun, at the vernal equinox, the farthest place the “sun goes”, until our planet “turns around” in its orbit, to head us back towards “THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS”

The Great Day of the Lord
Mal 4:1  For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 
Mal 4:2  But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 
Mal 4:3  And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 
Mal 4:4  Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 
Mal 4:5  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 

Mal 4:6  And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. 
Like a LIGHT shinning in DARK PLACES the WORD OF GOD, brings HOPE, MUSIC, JOY and PEACE OF MIND, to be forgiven is to be LOVED.

P.S. I am laughing, because even if this “light” is not real, it still seems strange to close the book, and let it burn? Sometimes the devil does not seem “real” but we have seen the results of mankind’s footprint on earth. . .call it “exploration.” We all leave “an impression” on others where ever we turn. Let’s make a difference, to those who need a hug and smile in their lives, as we remember the reason for the season of darkness. . .that brought us the GREAT LIFE of Jesus Christ.

We Sit With Christ on His Throne

My GOD represents himself as a LAMB slain from before the World was created. The Plan of Salvation and the Mystery of God is incomprehensible. Only the Bible could tell a story like this!

It is Written: “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.   He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”  Rev 3:21-22. (Because He overcame, He gives us the Robe of His Righteousness!)

“In these words an individual work is laid out for each one of us. We are to make determined efforts to overcome as Christ overcame. From this warfare no one is excused. If for us the gates of the holy city swing ajar, if we behold the king in His beauty, we must now overcome as Christ overcame. . .He laid aside His robes of royalty, . . . His riches, and for our sake became poor, that we might come into possession of an immortal inheritance. In our behalf, He met and conquered the prince of darkness. . . .

“The lesson of self-control should begin with the infant in its mother’s arms. The child should be taught that its will must be brought into subjection. . . . Who are these children committed to our care? —They are the younger members of the Lord’s family. He says, Take these children and train them. . . so that they will be polished after the similitude of a palace, prepared to shine in the courts of My house. What an important work! . . . Remember that in your work the Creator of the Universe will give you help. In His strength and through His name, you can lead your children up to be overcomers. Teach them to look to God for strength. Tell them that He hears their prayers. Teach them to overcome evil with good. Teach them to unite with God, and then they will have strength to resist the strongest temptation. They will then receive the reward of the overcomer.

“You lose much by not studying with great earnestness and care the life of Christ. There you . . .may see the victories which you have to gain . . .that you may win the precious white robe of a spotless character, and stand at last without fault before the throne of God.”

Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White, p. 371 for December 30.

Good Morning Nebraska Peace Be Unto You! he said . . .

The disciples had gathered in an upper chamber where Jesus spent the hours of the last evening before His death. The disciples will not sleep till they learn for a certain what has become of the body of Jesus?

“They find the door of the chamber securely barred. They knock for admission, but no answer comes. All is still. Then they give their names. The door is carefully unbarred, they enter, and Another, unseen, enters with them. Then the door is again fastened, to keep out spies.

“The travelers find all in surprised excitement. The voices of those in the room break out into thanksgiving and praise, saying, “The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon (Peter).” Then the two travelers, panting with the haste with which they have made their journey, tell the wondrous story of how Jesus has appeared to them. They have just ended, and some are saying that they cannot believe it, for it is too good to be true, when behold, another Person stands before them. Every eye is fastened upon the Stranger. No one has knocked for entrance. No footstep has been heard. The disciples are startled, and wonder what it means. Then they hear a voice which is no other than the voice of their Master. Clear and distinct the words fall from His lips, “Peace be unto you.” Luke 24:37-39  “But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?  Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when He had thus spoken, He showed them His hands and feet.”

They beheld the hands and feet marred by the cruel nails. They recognized His voice, like no other they had ever heard. “And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, He said unto them, Have you any meat? And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. And He took it, and did eat before them.” “Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.” Faith and joy took the place of unbelief, and with feelings which no words could express then acknowledged their risen Savior.”

“At the birth of Jesus the angel announced, Peace on earth, and goodwill to men. And now at His first appearance to the disciples after His resurrection, the Saviour addressed them with the blessed words, “Peace be unto you.” Jesus is ever ready to speak peace to souls that are burdened with doubts and fears. He waits for us to open the door of the heart to Him, and say, Abide with us. He says, “Behold I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.” Revelation 3:20

The resurrection of Jesus was a type of the FINAL RESURRECTION OF ALL WHO SLEEP IN HIM. The countenance of the risen Saviour, His manner, His speech, were all familiar to His disciples. As Jesus arose from the dead, so those who sleep in Him are to RISE AGAIN. We shall know our friends, even as the disciples knew Jesus. They may have been deformed, diseased, or disfigured, in this mortal life, and they rise in perfect health and symmetry; yet in the glorified body their identity will be perfectly preserved. Then shall we know even as also we are known. I Corinthians 13:12. In the face radiant with the light shining from the face of Jesus, we shall recognize the lineaments of those we love.

“When Jesus met with His disciples, He reminded them of the words He had spoken to them before His death, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms concerning Him. “Then he opened their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures, and said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day; and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things.”

The disciples began to realize the nature and extent of their work. They were to proclaim TO THE WORLD, the wonderful truths which Christ had entrusted to them. The events of his life, His death and resurrection, the prophecies that pointed to these events, the sacredness of the Law of God, the mysteries of the plan of salvation, the power of Jesus for the remission of sins, –to all these things they were witnesses, and they were to make them known to the world. They were to proclaim the GOSPEL OF PEACE and SALVATION through repentance and the power of the Saviour.

John 20:21-23  “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: 
Whosoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosoever sins ye retain, they are retained.” The Holy Spirit was not yet fully manifested; for Christ had not yet been glorified. The more abundant impartation of the Spirit did not take place till after Christ’s ascension. Not until this was received could the disciples fulfill the commission to preach the GOSPEL TO THE WORLD. But the Spirit was now given for a SPECIAL PURPOSE. Before the disciples could fulfill their official duties in connection with the church, Christ breathed His Spirit upon them. He was committing to them a most sacred trust, and he desired to impress them with the fact that without the Holy Spirit this work could not be accomplished.

The Holy Spirit is the breath of spiritual life in the soul. The impartation of the Spirit is the impartation of the LIFE OF CHRIST. It imbues the receiver with the attributes of Christ. Only those who are thus taught of God, those who possess the inward working of the Spirit, and in whose life the Christ-life is manifested, are to stand as representative men, to minister in behalf of the church.

“Whosoever sins ye remit,” said Christ, “they are remitted; . . .and whosesoever sins ye retain, they are retained.” Christ here gives no liberty for any man to pass judgment upon others. In the Sermon on the Mount He forbade this. It is the prerogative of God. But on the church in its organized capacity He places a responsibility for the individual members. Toward those who fall into sin, the church has a duty, to warn, to instruct, and if possible to restore. “Reprove, rebuke, exhort.” the Lord says, “with all long-suffering and doctrine.” 2 Timothy 4:2 Deal faithfully with wrongdoing. Warn every soul that is in danger. Leave none to deceive themselves. Call sin by its right name. Declare what God has said in regard to lying, Sabbath-breaking, stealing, idolatry, and every other evil.

Gal 5:19  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Gal 5:20  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Gal 5:21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 

But there is a brighter side to the picture.

Gal 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Gal 5:23  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Gal 5:24  And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. Gal 5:25  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Gal 5:26  Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. 

These words of Ellen White explaining the revelation off Jesus Christ to His disciples offers direction in how to teach like Jesus did.

THE DESIRE OF AGES, p. 802+. And with twelve personalities, we can understand why, we are like we are. It is what it is. When God made us, He can take the blame…which He did. And I shake my head. Could it be I really might be one who could answer the call to bring the Ten Commandments out of hiding? This I do not know. But again a date is set for December 31st. Just two days away.

As Overcomers We Inherit All Things: like being called The Pillars in God’s Heavenly Temple

“Pillars of the faith” in Heaven include those who came alive when Jesus rose from the grave, and we recognize Enoch, Elijah and Moses. Image being invited into His company!

Rev 3:11  Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Rev 3:12  Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 

Yesterday we remember, “What a precious assurance is promised to those who enlist under the blood-stained Banner of Prince Emmanuel, when the spotless robe of Christ’s Righteousness is placed upon the tried, tempted, yet faithful children of God!” This like having a father who is meek and mild, knowing his children are sometimes bewildered, confused, upset and even sad. These the times He puts His arms around us, when we cry. He just holds us and doesn’t have to say anything, we know He loves us.

“The ONLY HOPE OF ANY MAN or WOMAN lies through Jesus Christ. . . The pure and holy garments are not prepared to be put on by any one after he has entered the gate of the city. All who enter will have on the Robe of Christ’s Righteousness, and the Name of God will seen in their foreheads. This Name is the symbol which the apostle saw in vision, and signifies the yielding of the mind to intelligent and loyal obedience to all of God’s commandments.

“The conflict that we are passing through is the last we shall have in this world. We are now in the midst of it. Two parties are striving for the supremacy. In this conflict we cannot be neutral. We must stand either on one side of or on the other. If we take our position on the side of Christ, if we acknowledge Him before the world in word and work, we are bearing a living testimony as to whom we have chosen to serve and honor. In this important period of earth’s history, we cannot afford to leave any one in uncertainty as to whose side we are on.

“In order to gain the VICTORY over every besetment of the enemy, we must lay hold on a power that is out of and beyond ourselves. We must maintain a constant, living connection with Christ, who has power to give victory to every soul that will maintain an attitude of faith and humility. . . .As those who hope to receive the overcomer’s reward, we must press forward in the Christian warfare, though at every advance we meet with opposition. . . .As overcomers, we are to reign with Christ in the heavenly courts, and we are to overcome through the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the Temple of God.”

Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White for December 29, p. 370

The Temple of God in Heaven is a place for all Nations to pray, there are no Jews or Gentiles. God makes us aware of His plan to include the Gentiles, as the Levites. . .for priests.

Isa 66:19-21  “And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations. . . . that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles. . . .  And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD. 

Image GOD, inviting you to become a priest, in His Holy Heavenly Sanctuary? Just looking at those prophets, who walked and talked with Jesus.

We Are Presented To The Father.

This article repeats todays article without the extra information about Ellen White and her writings.

We are presented to the Father, when we put on THE ROBE OF CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS, it is HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, that NEEDS TO BE MADE KNOWN, as our righteousness is like filthy rags. HE SEES US AS HIS SONS AND DAUGHTERS, children who make mistakes and we too, learn by the things we suffer.

“He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in White Raiment; and I will NOT BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before His angels.” Revelation 3:5

“The expression, “He that overcometh,” indicates that there is something for everyone of us to overcome. The overcomer is to be clothed in the white raiment of Christ’s righteousness, and of him it is written: “I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.” O, what a privilege it is to be an overcomer, and to have our names presented before the Father by the Saviour Himself!”

“What a precious assurance is contained in this promise! What greater inducement could be presented to us too become the sons and daughters of God? Who will put on the whole armor? Who will enlist under the blood-stained banner of Prince Emmanuel? . . .Divine enlightenment may come to every struggling, tempted child of God in order that he need not fall in the strife with the powers of darkness, but be a conqueror in every battle.”

The spotless Robe of Christ’s Righteousness is placed upon the tried, tempted, yet faithful children of God. . . .Their names are retained in the Lamb’s book of life, enrolled among the faithful of all ages. They have resisted the wiles of the deceiver; they have not been turned from their loyalty by the dragon’s roar. Now they are eternally secure from the tempter’s devices. . . .The remnant are not only pardoned and accepted, but honored. “A fair miter” is set upon their heads. They are to be as kings and priests unto God. While Satan was urging his accusations and seeking to destroy this company, holy angels, unseen, were passing to and fro, placing upon them the seal of the living God. These are they that stand upon Mount Zion wit the Lamb, having the Father’s name written in their foreheads.” Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White p. 369

Eph_4:30  And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

Vision of The New Earth*

*This vision describes events to take place at the close of the one thousand years after Christ’s second advent, Revelation 20, 21, 22;

With Jesus at our head, we all descended from the city (New Jerusalem) down to earth, on a great and mighty mountain. . ‘Zechariah 14:4 “And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.'”

“With Jesus at our head, we all descended from the city [New Jerusalem] on a great and mighty mountain, which could not bear Jesus up, and it parted asunder, and there was a mighty plain. Then we looked up and saw the great city, with twelve foundations, and twelve gates, three on each side, and an angel at each gate. We all cred out: “The city, the great city, it’s coming, it’s coming down from God out of heaven.” and it came and settled on the place where we stood. Then we began to look at the glorious things outside of the city. There I saw most beautiful houses, that had the appearance of silver, supported by four pillars set with pearls, most glorious to behold, which were to be inhabited by the saints, and in which was a golden shelf. I saw many of the saints go into the houses, take off their glittering crowns and lay them on the shelf, then go out into the field by the houses to do something with the earth; not as we have to do with earth here; no, no. A glorious LIGHT shone all about their heads, and they were continually offering praise to God.

“And I saw another field full of all kinds of flowers, and as I plucked them, I cried out: “They will never fade.” Next I saw a field of tall grass, most glorious to behold; it was living green, and had a reflection of silver and gold, as it waved proudly to the glory of King Jesus. Then we entered a field full of all kinds of beasts—lion, the lamb, the leopard, and the wolf, all together in perfect union. We passed though the midst of them, and they followed on peaceable after. Then we entered the woods, not like the dark woods we have here; no, no; but LIGHT, all over glorious; the branches of the trees waved to and fro, and we all cried out: “We will dwell safely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods.” We passed through the woods, for we were on our way to Mount Zion.

“As we traveled along, we met a company who were also gazing at the glories of the place. I noticed red as border on their garments; their crowns were brilliant; their robes were pure white. As we greeted them, I asked Jesus who they were. He said, “They were martyrs that had been slain for Him.” With them was an innumerable company of little ones; they had a hem of red on their garments also. Mount Zion was just before us, and on the mount was a glorious temple, and about it were seven other mountains, on which grew roses and lilies. And I saw the little ones climb, or, if they chose, use their little wings and fly to the top of the m ountains, and pluck the never-fading flowers. There were all kinds of trees around the temple to beautify the place —the box, the pine, the fir, the oil, the myrtle, the pomegranate, and the fig tree bowed down with the weight of its timely fig; these made the place all over glorious. And as we were about to enter the temple, Jesus raised His lovely voice and said, “Only the 144,00 enter this place” and we shouted, “Alleluia!”

This temple was supported by seven pillars, all transparent gold, set with pearls most most glorious. The wonderful things I there saw, I cannot describe. Oh, that I could talk in the language of Canaan, then could I tell a little of the glory of the better world. I saw there tables of stone in which the names of the 144,000 were engraved in letters of gold.

After beholding the glory of the temple, we went out, and Jesus left us and went to the city. Soon we heard His lovely voice again, saying: “Come, My people, you have come out of great tribulation, and done My will and suffered for Me, come in to supper; for I will gird Myself and serve you.” We shouted, “Alleluia, glory,” and entered the city. Here I saw a table of pure silver; it was many miles in length, yet out eyes could extend over it. I saw the fruit of the tree of life, the manna, almonds, figs, pomegranates, grapes, and many other kinds of fruit. I asked Jesus to let me eat of the fruit. He said: “Not now. Those who eat of the fruit of this land, go back to earth no more. But in a little while, if faithful, you shall both eat of the fruit of the tree of life and drink of the water of the fountain. And,” he said, “you must go back to the earth again, and relate to others what I have revealed to you.” Then an angel bore me gently down to the dark world. Sometimes I think I can stay here no longer, all things of earth look so dreary. I fell very lonely here, for I have seen a better land. Oh that I had wings like a dove, then would I fly away and be at rest.

“Brother Hyde, who was present during this vision, composed the following verses, which have gone the rounds of the religious papers, and have found a place I serval hymnbooks. Those who have published, read, and sung them have little thought that they originated from a vison of girl persecuted for her humble testimony.

We have heard from the bright, the holy land; We have heard, and our hearts are glad; For we were a lonely pilgrim band, And weary, worn, and sad. They tell us the saints have a dwelling there–No longer are homeless ones; And we know that the goodly land is fair, Where life’s pure river runs.

They say green fields are waving there, That never a blight shall know; And the deserts wild are blooming fair, And the roses of Sharon grow. There are lovely birds in the bowers green, Their songs are blithe and sweet; And their warbling’s, gushing ever new, The angels’ harpings greet.

We have heard of the palms, the robes, the crowns, And the silvery band in white; Of the city fair, with pearly gaes, All radiant with light. We have heard of the angels there, and saints, With their harps of gold, how they sing; Of the mount, with the fruitful tree of life, Of the leaves that healing brings.

The King of that country, He is fair, He’s the joy and LIGHT of the place; In His beauty we shall behold Him there, And bask in His smiling face. We’ll be there, we’ll be there in a little while, We’ll join the pure and the blest; We’ll have the palm, the robe, the crown, and forever be at rest.

The Thousand Years
Rev 20:1  And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 
Rev 20:2  And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 
Rev 20:3  And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. 

Rev 20:4  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 

Rev 20:5  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. [Those who were ready, and living when Jesus comes will be taken to heaven with him, for a thousand years] Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

The Defeat of Satan

Rev 20:7  And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 
Rev 20:8  And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 
Rev 20:9  And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 
Rev 20:10  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. 

Judgment Before the Great White Throne

Rev 20:11  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. Rev 20:12  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. Rev 20:13  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. Rev 20:14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Rev 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. 

Zechariah 14:4 “And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.” 

Revelation 21 QUOTED:

The New Heaven and the New Earth
Rev 21:1  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 
Rev 21:2  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 
Rev 21:3  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 
Rev 21:4  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 
Rev 21:5  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 
Rev 21:6  And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. Rev 21:7  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. Rev 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. 

The New Jerusalem
Rev 21:9  And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. Rev 21:10  And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,  Rev 21:11  Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; Rev 21:12  And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: Rev 21:13  On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. Rev 21:14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. Rev 21:15  And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. Rev 21:16  And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. Rev 21:17  And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. Rev 21:18  And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. Rev 21:19  And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; Rev 21:20  The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. [I would like to know if these colors make a rainbow?]
Rev 21:21  And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. Rev 21:22  And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. Rev 21:23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. Rev 21:24  And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it. Rev 21:25  And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. Rev 21:26  And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. Rev 21:27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defiles, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or makes a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life. 

Revelation 12 quoted:

The River of Life
Rev 22:1  And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. Rev 22:2  In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Rev 22:3  And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 
Rev 22:4  And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. Rev 22:5  And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. 

Jesus Is Coming
Rev 22:6  And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. Rev 22:7  Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 
Rev 22:8  And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Rev 22:9  Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. Rev 22:10  And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. Rev 22:11  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. Rev 22:12  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. Rev 22:13  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Rev 22:14  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. Rev 22:15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. Rev 22:16  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. Rev 22:17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Rev 22:18  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: Rev 22:19  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Rev 22:20  He which testifies these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Rev 22:21  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. 

Please ask questions, and I will try to find the answer, in her writings.

Because We are Worthy, We Shall Walk in White. . .

Messengers of God who sit as Christ’s table, and feast on the provisions He has furnished, at the Marriage supper of the Lamb, have a special garment, called the wedding garment, which is the White Robe of Of Christ’s Righteousness.

“Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.” Revelation 3:4.

When, as overcomers, we shall be “clothed in white raiment,” the Lord will acknowledge our faithfulness as verily as in the days of the early Christian church. He acknowledged the “few names even in Sardis,” who had “not defiled their garments;” and we shall walk with Him in white, for through His atoning sacrifice we shall be accounted worthy. . .

Bible quote in context reveals the whole story.

Rev 3:1  And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 
Rev 3:2  Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. 
Rev 3:3  Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. 
Rev 3:4  Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. 
Rev 3:5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. 
Rev 3:6  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. 

“In view of these encouraging promises, how earnestly should we strive to perfect a character that will enable us to stand before the Son of God! Only those who are clothed in the garments of His righteousness will be able to endure the glory of His presence when He shall appear with “power and great glory.”

“It means much to be an overcomer. The besetments of the enemy and all his evil agencies must be firmly resisted. Every moment we must be on guard. Not for one instant are we to lose sight of Christ, and of His power to save in the hour of trial. Our hand must be placed in His, that we may be upheld by the power of His might.

“If you are to sit at Christ’s table and feast on the provisions He has furnished at the marriage supper of the Lamb, you must have a “special garments”, called the “wedding garment,” which is the white robe of CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS. Every one who has on this robe is entitled to enter the city of God; and if Jesus had not been very desirous you should have a place in the mansions He has gone to prepare for those who Him, He would not, at so great an expense to Himself, have made all these arrangements that you might be happy and sit at His table and enjoy the home He has gone to prepare for His redeemed family.”

Ellen G. White quotes from SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, p. 368 for December 27.

We Are Given Life Without End

  “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” Revelation 2:10 KJ

“The wages of sin is death, but the GIFT OF GOD is eternal life though Jesus Christ our Lord.” While life is the inheritance of the righteous, death is the portion of the wicked. Moses declared to Israel, “I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil.” The death referred to in theses scriptures is not that pronounced upon Adam, for all mankind suffer the penalty of his transgression. It is the “second death” that is placed in contrast with everlasting life.

In consequence of Adam’s sin, death passed upon the whole human race. All alike go down into the grave. And through the provisions of the Plan of Salvation, ALL are to be BROUGHT forth from their GRAVES. “There shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust,” “for as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” But a distinction is made between the two classes that are brought forth. “ALL that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.” They who have been “accounted worthy” of the resurrection of life, are “blessed and holy.” “On such the second death has no power.” But those who have not, through repentance and faith, secured pardon, must receive the penalty of transgression.

“Said the angel, “Satan is the root, his children are the branches. They are NOW consumed ROOT AND BRANCH. They have died an EVERLASTING DEATH. They are NEVER to have a resurrection, and God will have a Clean Universe.” . . . And all the redeemed host, old and young, great and small, cast their glittering crowns at the feet of their Redeemer, and prostrated themselves in adoration before Him, and worshiped Him that liveth forever and ever. The beautiful new earth, with all its glory, was the eternal inheritance of the saints.”

Ellen G. White author of Sons and Daughters of God, p. 367 for December 26.

Some may not like the reminder, that the devil and his followers must be destroyed. But heaven’s inhabitants, on other planets, with civilizations, have voted unanimously, 100% in agreement, they have SEEN ENOUGH of our inability to recreate or restore what the devil has suggested, “we can do.”

Our earth needs a HEAVENLY BEING, who is HOLY, who can CREATE and who must DESTROY, the one who continues to whisper in our ear, of ways to make Jesus cry. . .as the devil tries to snatch us away from the prophets, and His Kingdom, who give us a daily dose of Their Holy Spirit.

ASK, ASK, and ASK God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit to “win your heart” so your whole day, will go with Him, beside you, to guide you, into all truth.

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day . . .

Christ in us, is CHRISTMAS with the JOY of PEACE ON EARTH, Goodwill Towards all MANKIND

2Corfintians 1:5  For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. 

If Jesus didn’t suffer, did not die and rise again to be with Our Farther in heaven, we HAVE NO HOPE. However because His mercy abounds He sends us His Holy Spirit, to comfort us in our sorrow, in our joy and in our peace of mind, that His power to redeem us has no end, no expiration date. He is not a bag of potato chips that goes stale.

His Righteousness, is the MORNING STAR, THE LIGHTS, like we see hanging all around the Christmas trees, the neighbors porch, the garage with colored light, against the hedge surround by “snow”.

God has no need “of sacrifices of burnt offerings.” He is not pleased with the death of animals or humans. In this context come these words of comfort, from the Holy Spirit.

Isa_1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Hear Gods Words in Context:

Isa 1:8  And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city. (The daughter is left with a house, but in the garden are “cucumbers” and we know of those who are sitting in the pew, who do not want to learn something new, like the blessings of GOD, are not for just a “few.” But how can we know what to TEACH? When we first must know, THE GOSPEL, is about JESUS, HIS LIFE, HIS DEATH, HIS resurrection as He left in a cloud, He will return sitting on a cloud, and in a twinkling of an eye, HE will raise us up to the SKY, to take us HOME in HIS CHARIOT, of angels!

This very minute, that CLOUD OF ANGELS coming our way out of the MIDNIGHT SKY, is not some DISASTER of HOLY ANGELS coming to DESTROY us. HOLY ANGELS are in the cloud of angels, to unite us with the DEAD who will come alive, out of their graves, like the BEST CHRISTMAS STORY ever told. . .of HOW JESUS WAS RASIED FROM THE DEAD, as the story goes HE took some of the living and dead with HIM TO HEAVEN, when he rose other graves opened, to BRING as THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THE DEAD in His day.

The grave of DAVID in JERUSALEM is EMPTY….a huge sarcophagi is all that remains of KING DAVID, from the Tribe of Judah. How many times in heaven, has David heard his name taken in vain, for his sin with Bathsheba? The end of the royal lineage of God, by the wisest man, who thought he could learn, by doing everything. . . .including self destroying the KINGDOM, by using women of other Nations, like a chest player sacrificing pawns, to protect HIS KINGDOM, from other nations, who might think first if their daughters, were in DANGER.

The MASTERMIND behind the PLAN OF SALVATION began easy enough in the GARDEN OF EDEN. But where we are IN THE LAST DAYS, we can comprehend, the necessity of GOD, to bring in NOAH to build the ARK, to permit Satan to try and destroy our WORLD WITH A FLOOD.

Isa 1:9  Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. Isa 1:10  Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. Isa 1:11  To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. 
Isa 1:12  When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? Isa 1:13  Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Isa 1:14  Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. 
Isa 1:15  And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. 

Isa 1:16  Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Isa 1:17  Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Isa 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. 

God of All Comfort

2Co 1:3  Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 2Co 1:4  Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. 

Did I just read, that when we are in our SUFFERING, it is to learn HOW GOD COMFORTS US, and when we learn to be COMFORTED by HIS LOVE, patience and mercy, WE MAYBE ABLE TO COMFORT THEM WHICH ARE IN ANY TROUBLE?

Is the reason we suffer, to LEARN HOW PAINFUL IT IS, so we can comfort others? We do learn by the things we suffer.

There is a reason why GOOD PEOPLE SUFFER? The reason is when we suffer, we go to the GOD, who died of a broken heart. . .because He felt rejected by mankind and His Father’s heart was broken also, because HE TOO LOVES US, more than His son. Our Father and His Son have a HEARTS DESIRE, that we bring others to them, to heaven, with us!

2Co 1:5  For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. 

Who gives credit to that little Jewish baby with curly black hair, the dark skin of those who came off the Ark, and began again the HUMAN RACE.

What did these men look like? Those who settled in Armenia, and moved south down the rivers of Euphrates to build the cities of Egypt, and those who lived along the Nile?

Half Armenian, but as he grows old, and his skin gets lighter, this old man has the nose of those who claim their heritage comes from Noah.

When this man entered the Holy Sepulcher the guide came forward and spoke to him in Armenian. A language he never knew, because his mother died in childbirth.

Is your Jesus a JEW, from the TRIBE of JUDAH? Is your JESUS the baby in the manger at CHRISTMAS, we know as the CHRIST CHILD?

These are not worthless words, as the antichrist, antigod, will attempt to stand on earth, in The PLACE, of JESUS, and Our Heavenly Father, and declare that he is both THE FATHER, THE SON and the Holy Spirit.

We must be aware of false gods, who wish us to bow down and worship them, or the image of the Mother of Jesus. Because the time is soon coming when a word you cannot find in scriptures’ does not exist…it is NOT IN THE BIBLE…IT DID NOT EXIST…in the days of JESUS CHRIST THE JEW, who died for you. That WORD is SUNDAY.

Can you guess which Nation was WAR LIKE and destroyed the SANCTUARY OF GOD in 70 A.D.? Can you guess which NATION was “baptized” into being the HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE? Can you guess who RULES HIS NATION, and gives advice to nations, and wears the robe of his own righteousness? Why would the POPE call for the DAY OF THE SUN, to be worshipped, rather than JESUS CHRISTTHE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNES? The SON OF THE LIVING GOD?

Beware of false prophets, who would ask you to bow down and worship the man who wants us to worship THE SUN…when JESUS CHRIST IS THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS?

Mal_4:2  But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

Why must we “grow up” like calves in heaven? The human race has deteriorated from being separated from the TREE OF LIFE. That is why GOD took The Garden of Eden back to heaven, before the flood. This is why GOD can bring the GARDEN OF EDEN BACK as the center point in HIS CITY CALLED THE NEW JERUSALMEN with a river running through it.

G-O-D’s Plan is to restore the image of JESUS CHRIST, the JEW, in YOU. . .the SABBATH is the STAMP of GOD, on CREATION, DESIGN, ORDER and His foundation.

Merry Christ in us.
