Rev 11:16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Rev 11:17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. Rev 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
Rev 11:19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament:
and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
P.S. The patience of God ends with His wrath against sin.
Had sin been permitred to enter Heaven. . .the Universe would have been destroyed. . .
A price had to paid to redeemed all who have sinned, and we have all sinned against Our Creator. . .and anyone who says they have no sin, is a liar, and there is no truth in them. (I John 1:8)
If anyone feels truth tugging at your heart to repent. . . for unconfessed sins. . . do this now. . .in your heart to heart talk with God. He knows His power can save to the utmost, all who call upon His name. . . He knows your inmost thoughts, and he still loves you, and forgives you. . . as we forgive those who sin against us.
“The Kingdoms of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign for ever and ever.”
Heaven has bowed down to Our Creator . . . must we wait for another war, to humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord? Or has He spoken and Heaven opens the doors for us to see God’s Temple in Heaven and within His Temple is seen the Ark of His Covenant. . . knowing we have a GOD who cannot change His Law. . . if God could change His Law. . .His own son would not have to die. . .to be the blood sacrifice!
There will be no blood sacrifice ever again in Heaven. . . nor will you wish to see the slaughter of God’s pets. . . as we pet the Lion and the Lamb, resting together.
The crisis rises Christ to be the perfect sacrifice. . .and in all humility. . . we are invited into His Kingdom. . . all who call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. . . by His Righteousness. . . put on the Robe of His Righteousness. . . and be right with God and man. . . just now. . .who and wherever you are, bow dow to His presence, to continue with you. . .until we meet again.
Do not expect “to wait” very long, because His Kingdom has been turned over to His Saints. . .Dan 7:27 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.
NO! Jesus will not set his feet down on this corruptable world….the wrath of God, permits Satan to wander for a thousand years over the ruins he has “created”. . .by destroying…or trying to destroy those who are loyal to His Son. . .
After the thousand years in Paradise with God, the New Heavenly Jerusalem, will settle down on earth, as the feet of Jesus, will touch down on the Mount of Olives, and then part the mountain, to make room for the city four square…so each will receive the reward of their works. . . Thankfully those within the New Jerusalem, have found their “rest” in trusting Jesus, God, and His Holy Spirit.
May God Bless you and keep you and may His face always shine upon you, and give you peace.
Waiting for Jesus to return, after the 144,000 are taken to heaven, is the blessing on those who live in the last days. . .the 144,000 raised from the dead, were lead to Christ. . . His love in His Law, and by His Commandments, we have seen ourselves, as sinners in need of our High Priest, Jesus Christ, who has won the war against evil. . . and never again will sin be appealing to those in God’s Kingdom.
Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
Zec 1:6 “But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? and they returned and said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us.”
Dan 9:6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
Dan 9:11 Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.
Nah 1:5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. Nah 1:6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
The Children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were under the curse of being salves. For 400 years under the hand of many Pharaohs they lived and died under the whip of their rulers. The Shepherds of the flocks lived a nomadic life style of the Bedouins. They had no Saviour, until Moses was found hiding in a floating bed among the weeds. In the Nile, God saw a meek and mild Man and his brother Aaron.
Pharaoh saw the growing population of shepherds and their strange wish to offer a blood sacrifice, which was foreign to their vegetarian diet and worship of the animals, like the cow who brought them milk, butter and cheese.
From the gates of hell, God brought them up ” . . . to keep His commandments, and repayeth them that hate Him to their face, to destroy them: He will not be slack to him that hateth Him, He will repay him to his face.” Deuternonmy 7:9,10.
Hate is a very strong word. My Mother would not permit us to use it. We could say, “I immensely dislike you, I immensely dislike you, I immensely dislike you.” Which does not have the impact like saying, “I hate you, I hate you, I hate you.” And Walter, my son pointed that out to me, when he was being bullied in school and wanted to pour out his feelings, while trying to protect his brother.
Where shall we be before the thousand generations mentioned in scripture are ended? Our fate will have been decided for eternity. Either we shall have been pronounced worthy of a home in the everlasting kingdom of God or we shall have received sentence of eternal death. Those who have been true and faithful to their covenant with God; those who, remembering Calvary, have stood firmly on the side of truth, ever striving to honor God, will hear the commendation: “Well done, good and faithful servant.” But those who have given God only halfhearted service, allowing their lives to be conformed to the ways andpractices of the world, wil hear the sad words: “Depart from Me; I know you not.”
Our Redeemer formed the plan of enlisting His co-workers that man might no lose the blessed results of benevolence. God could have reached His object in saving sinners without the aid of man, but He knew that man could not be happy without acting a part in the great work. By a chain of circstances which would call forth his charities, He bestows upon man the best means of cultivating benevolence, and keeps him habitually giving to help the poor and to advance His cause. By its necessities a ruined world is drawing forth from us talents of means and of influence, to present to mena nd women the truth, of which they are in perishing need. And as we heed these calls, by labor and by acts of benevolence, we are assimilated to the image of Him who for our sakes became poor. In bestowing we bless others and thus accumlate true riches.
When “a man” wishes to sit on God’s Throne and think God’s laws need to be changed to suit the world to bow down to him. . . and disregard the true God. . . mankind becomes the servants of God or the servants of man.
The Jews know this pattern of being labeled as unfit to live or exist, because their loyalty is to truth. . . Man cannot live by bread alone, but by every WORD that comes GOD . . . Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. . . and in Heaven there is no sickness, sorrow or pain. . . Give us this day, our daily rest, and forgive our sins as we forgive our brothers, and lead us not into tempation, and deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory for Ever. . . A Men, amen, amen.
The Kingdoms of this world, shall become the kingdomes of His World, with no strife, no crime, no howling for independence. . . for Jesus purchased our freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to think, to ask. . . who, what, when, where, why and how could make a “blood sacrifice” that would force the Children of Adam and Eve out of Paradise? And away from the Tree of Life?
Will we wish to eye animal in heaven and hunger to eat it? Or will we permit God to have his pet lion lay down with a lamb? My Uncle Walt used to say, if we were all vegetarians. . . it would be a better world. . . image no slaughter houses? No loss of blood, no wars, just men invested to make our land become healthy to grow crops to eat instead of taking our grain to the feed lots? Can we beat our weapons into plows? Instead of into war machines?
Can we have peace without blood shed? Can we satisify our hunger by desiring the fruit hidden amont the leaves on the Tree of Life?
Can we image swimming in an unpolluted stream below a waterfall, without worry? Can we image a true heaven without bugs and thorns? Can we image a day without crime? Worry? or Stress?
That would be heaven to me. . . and the sacrifice to not eat God’s pets. . . would be heaven to me.
As I look at my calico cat, cozied up in her favorite place, taking a well deserved rest, on the chair beside me.
If we can find peace of mind on earth, looking out our windows on a garden without sin’s curb of eating insects, needing fertilizer, and machine to mow the lawn. . .what will we do with time. . .or will we have enough time to visit the many galaxies, planets, stars, suns and moons, where the exicited crowds are eager to learn. . . from us. . . what disobedience to God’s Laws means.
I can only shake my head. . . in wonder of what a holy, happy kingdom of people, so thankful to be together, under His Tree of Life, and setting on the Mountside each time He calls us to eat lunch at His table, that stretches for miles . . . and with the eye site to see and wave at each person who has welcomes His call to, “Come and eat.”
Choose ye this day, whom ye will serve. . .if God than God, if man, than man. . . .and what man cannot humble himself to sit at the feet of Jesus?
Or are we too proud to read the red words in the New Testament, spoken by a God who dearly cares for all mankind?
Today, I take Carol to have her vision tested in a neighboring town. Carol is my spiritual mentor. She’s 92 and her old cronies have passed away. . .but her timely advice and worship of God . . .gives me great pleasure to be with on a little drive through the country.
God plans my days, but today is a special day, because He knew what a blessing it would be for me to be with a woman, whose husband died and left her to raise five children. . . a woman who leaned on God. . . as she worked to keep food on the table. . .and her children love her as no other.
Have a good day and be a blessing to others. And choose to be among those God calls His Children!
“Could men see with heavenly vision, they would behold companies of angels that excel in strength stationed about those who have kept the word of Christ’s patience. With sympathizing tenderness, angels have witnessed their distress and have heard their prayers. They are waiting for the word of their Commander to snatch them from their peril. But they must wait yet a little longer. The people of God must drink the cup and be baptized with the baptism. The very delay, so painful to them, is the best answer to their petitions. As they endeavor to wait trustingly for the Lord to work they are led to exercise faith, hope, and patience, which have been too little exercised during their religious experience. Yet for the elect’s sake, the time of trouble will be shortened, “Shall not God avenge His own elect, which cry day and night unto Him? . . . I tell you that He will avenge them speedily.” Luke 18:7,8. The end will come more quickly than men expect. The wheat will be gathered and bound in sheaves for the garner of God; the tares will be bound as fagots, for the fires of destruction.
“The heavenly sentinels, faithful to their trust, continue their watch. Though a general decree has fixed the time when commandment keepers may be put to death, their enemies will in some cases anticipate the decree, and before the time specified, will endeavor to take their lives. But none can pass the mighty guardians stationed about every faithful soul. Some are assailed in their flight from the cities and villages, but the swords raised against them break and fall as powerless as a straw. Others are defended by angels in the form of men of war.
“In all ages, God has wrought through holy angels for the succor and deliverance of His people. Celestial beings have taken an active part in the affairs of men. They have appeared clothed in garments that shone as the lightning; they have come as men in the garb of wayfarers. Angels have appeared in human form to men of God. They have rested, as if weary, under oaks at noon. They have accepted the hospitality of human homes. They have acted as guides to benighted travelers. They have, with their own hands, kindled the fires of the altar. They have opened prison doors and set free the servants of the Lord. Clothed with the panoply of heaven, they came to roll away the stone from the Saviour’s tomb.
“In the form of men, angels are often in the assemblies of the righteous, and they visit the assemblies of the wicked, as they went to Sodom, to make a record of their deeds, to determine whether they have passed the boundary of God’s forbearance. The Lord delights in mercy; and for the sake of few who really serve Him, He restrains calamities and prolongs the tranquility of multitudes. Little do sinners against God realize that they are indebted for their own lives to the faithful few whom they delight to ridicule and oppress.”
Great Controversy, p. 631-633, Triumph of God’s Love p. 370-371
My restless soul was seeking this very reminder. . .of how God has led His people in the past, by sending His Son to walk among us. . . to guide us to the place we are going. The angel who led the children of Israel out of slavery to Pharaoh still leads us like the angel of light.
I pray you to sense the power of God today, as our only source of truth, love, and guidance. . . as I have today. We are not alone in our search for His holy word.
We have many angels, not just one, to be with us!
The appearance of the Ark of the Covenant, on the Temple Mount, will be THE SIGN, of the soon coming of Jesus and the convincing proof God only has ten laws, to rule the world!
The Seventh Bowl Rev 16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. Rev 16:18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. Rev 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. Rev 16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. Rev 16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
A talent of hail, weighs around 50 pounds, a kind of hail we have never seen before. The kind of hail God talked about to his servant Job.
Job 38:22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Job 38:23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war? Job 38:24 By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?
“The powers of evil will not yield up the conflict witout a struggle. But Providence has a part to act in the battle of Armageddon. When the earth is lighted with the glory of the angel of Revelation eighteen, the religous elements, good and evil, will awake from slumber, and the armies of the living God will take the field.” 7 BC 983 (1899)
“The battle of Armageddon is soon to be fought. He on whose vesture is written the name, King of kings and Lord of lords, leads forth the armies of HEAVEN on White Horses, clothed in fine linen, clean and white (Revelation 19:11-16) 7 BC 982, (1899)
“The whole earth heaves and swells like the waves of the sea. It’s surface is bfeaking up. Its very foundations seem to be giving way. Mountain chains are sinking. Inhabited islands disappear. The seaports that have become like Sodom for wickedness, and swallowed up by the angry waters. . . . The proudest cities of the earth are laid low. The lordly palaces, upon which the world’s great men have lavished their wealth in order to glorify themselvs, are crumbling in ruin before their eyes. Prison walls are rent assunder, and God’s people, who have been held in bondage for their faith are set free.” GC 637 (1911)
After an evening of watching movies made to describe the last day events on earth. . . and our choice to take or not take the Mark of the Beast. . . and come under the control of man or an A. I. the sudden destruction of the earth, by earthquake and hail, to release God’s people who have been held in bondage for their faith are SET FREE.
“When Christ shall cease his work as mediator in man’s behalf, then this time of trouble will begin. Then the case of every soul will have been decided, and there will be no atoning blood to cleanse from sin. When Jesus leaves His positio as man’s intercessor before God the solemn announcement is made, “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” Revelation 22:11 Then the restraing Spirit of God is withdrawn from the earth.” PP 201 (1890)
God’s People Are Prepared for the Trying Hour Before Them
“When Jesus leaves the most holy His restraing Spirit is withdrawn from rulers and people. They are left to the control of evil angels. Then such laws will be made by the counsel and direction of Satan that unless time should be very short, no flesh could be saved.” 1 T 204 (1859)
Those who refuse to be comforted by the soon coming of Jesus Christ will be left to their own delusions. . . and fears.
Carol now 92, has a smile on her face, as she thinks of what fun it will be to see Jesus coming in the clouds. And then be taken into the cloud, and watch the earth shrink into a tiny ball below us. . . and this old saint, gives me the joy, of wanting to be with her, as we are transported to the Orion Nebula, and its HORSEHEAD ICON, the horse, the beast, Jesus rides out of heaven to greet us. . .and take us to heaven.
The devil is intent on destroying the earth, but God is ahead of schedule, prepared to save to the utmost all who call upon His name. Because you are saved by His Righteousness, and God is giving the living. . . the final choice of life eternal or . . . a certain judgment you have brought upon yourself. . . by choosing to take or not take “the mark, or chip, or tattoo” that puts you under the control of satan. . . and an uncertain way of dying, and fighting against the New Jerusalem, that will come down after we have been in heaven for a thousands years with Jesus Christ, as he opens the books of every life and human on earth. . . so we can examine His judgement is just and merciful.
Those who refuse to repent, and change their ways and wish to continue in open sin against God. . . which requires Him to die again. . for your sin. . . has closed.
Revelation 18? Good News?
The Fall of Babylon Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. Rev 18:4 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. Rev 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. Rev 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; Rev 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
I hope and pray, no one is wishing to be like the High Priest, Caiaphas, who ordered the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, or the Jewish priests who saw Jesus tortured with a whip, cried out, “His blood be upon the heads of our children and their children.”
The Holocaust is the result of a priesthood ordering the death of an innocent Jew. . . let no one ever again. . . suggest we can protect our children, by killing innocent sons and daughters of God!
Thou shalt not kill
Exo 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
The angony I feel for those who refuse to study the Spirit of Prophecy found in the book, scribed by John, at the direction of Jesus Christ himself. Revelation is the last book of the Bible, written by Jesus Christ, God’s angel, who has won the conflict over Lucifer the other angel who was to guard the Ten Commandments of God in heaven.
Jesus conquered satan, at the cross. . . Jesus purchased our freedom and forgiveness of our sins, against Him. . . He died so we can live if we put on the Robe of His Righteousness. . .which is a free gift . . .if we remember the cost of our freedom, was purchased by His blood.
In all humility. . . I bow down to Our Creator Jesus Christ and Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed by Thy Name!
How do we avoid the plagues?
Rev 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Rev_19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
The remnant church has the spirit of prophecy, which is found in Revelation for it is the Testimony of Jesus Christ.
Rejoicing in Heaven Rev 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: Rev 19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. Rev 19:3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever. Rev 19:4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. Rev 19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. The Marriage Supper of the Lamb Rev 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. Rev 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. Rev 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. The Rider on a White Horse Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. Rev 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; Rev 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. Rev 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
There is much more to study in the closing scenes of earth’s history. Jesus had John write them down, just as God told Daniel…
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.
Won’t it be fun to see Daniel rise from his rest in the grave? His tomb is in Iran, they worship Daniel.
Exo 23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Exo 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. Exo 23:22 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.
With your angel as your friend and guide, you have a voice in your head to obey. . . and know right from wrong.
A farmer sows good seed, but many weeds pop up in our minds. . .some can be ideas that will destroy us . . .or hurt others. . .and this is why you want to plant the seeds. . .of life. . .of doing good to others. . .even as they learn how to grow up and produce good actions.
To obey is better than sacrificing Jesus Christ, who truly suffers when He sees us sin against Him. . .
That is why the priests are not needed. . .now. . .we can go to God in prayer. . and when we repent. . .He forgives us. . .and we are saved by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ and His Righteousness!
“I saw that the four angels would hold the four winds (over the Euphrates River) until Jesus’ work was done in the (heavenly) sanctuary, and then will come the seven last plagues. These plagues enraged the wicked against the righteous; they thought that we had brought the judgments of God upon them and that if they could rid the earth of us, the plagues would then be stayed.” EW 36 (1851)
The work of the antichrist, is the work of satan himself, who is behind all attempts to destroy those who keep the Sabbath created by Our Creator God the Father who art in heaven, God the Son, Yahweh, and God the Holy Spirit.
“When the angel of mercy folds her wings and departs Satan will do the evil deeds he has long wished to do. Storm and tempest, war and bloodshed—in these things he delights, and thus he gathers in his harvest. And so completely will men be deceived by him that they will declare that these calamities are the result of the desecration of the first day of the week. From the pulpits of the popular churches will be heard the statement that the world is being punished because Sunday is not honored as it should be.” RH September 17, 1901.
Jesus Our Messiah who has the gift of Eternal Life, could not remain on earth. . . He would be about 2022 years old this year in 2022.
Jesus would return to earth in 95 A. D. to give THE WORD for his friend and disciple John to write, about the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
This is the first time I learned the idea of a female angel, which is not new to the Jews, who did create a copy of the Ark of the Covenant…and place it in their Museum called the Temple Institute. And yes the two angels on the Mercy Seat, according to the High Priests who entered there, once a year, are male and female angels.
This will come out of hiding. . . and confirm the authenticity of Ellen Whites’ writings.
“It will be urged that the few who stand in opposition to an institution of the church and a law of the state, ought not to be tolerated; that it is better for them to suffer than for whole nations to be thrown into confusion and lawlessness. The same argument eighteen hundred years ago was brought against Christ by the “rulers of the people.” . . . This argument will appear conclusive.” Great Controversy 615 (1911)
The name “Jesus Christ” and the “separation of church and state” came from a group called PROTESTERS…against the authority of the Pope. . . . thus the Protestants. . . .got their name. . . Jesus became Our Messiah, when He rose from the grave, and went into the Most Holy in the Heavenly Sanctuary to sit down and be our mediator between God and man. . . on the date of 1844. . . .A group begin to emerge into followers of Jesus Christ, a Jew, Our King, who never quoted from the New Testament, and Jesus was never called a Christian. His disciples were Jews, and Paul was even a Jew who was killing men, women and children, who were followers following Jesus Christ a Jew.
Who would think the “universal church” would return to persecuting the very tiny tribe of Jacob. . .Isaac and Abraham. . . who came from the sons of Noah. The first Sabbath spent on earth, was with Adam and Eve with their Creator God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in the Garden of Eden. . . on the 6th day of Creation, God rested at sundown, to enjoy time with Adam and Eve . . . until Sundown on the 7th Day of Creation.
Once again, the few in number, a handful of truth seekers, guided by the Holy Spirit, still seek to find Him. . . the King of the Jews. . . crucified by the priests who ruled the people.
It was at this time, in A.D. 321, that the first Sunday law was proclaimed by Constantine. Notice that there is nothing Christian about this law. There is no mention of the resurrection of Christ or the fourth commandment.
The time will come when those who are loyal to Jesus Christ will be threatened to “take the mark” or the “sign” that they are loyal to man . . . or to God.
Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Rev 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Rev 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
Those living in the Last Days will be given the chance to forever choose to follow Jesus Christ. . . and be among THE CHOSEN.
“As Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon issued a decree that all who would not bow down and worship this image should be killed, so a proclamation will be made that all who will not reverence the Sunday institution will be punished with imprisonment and death. . . Let all read carefully the thirteenth chapter of Revelation, for it concerns every human agent, great and small.”
This is why Revelation 11 is the EPIC PROOF OF Jesus Christ being Our Messiah. . . not a man, not a woman, but Jesus is calling us to bow down and worship God the Father who art in Heaven, as He did.
Can “a man” go up to heaven, who began the whole crisis on earth, because he wanted to be worshipped in Heaven?
How can we provoke the Jews to find Salvation in Jesus Christ their Messiah? His dried blood comes alive when put in water. . . His blood is ALIVE. . . .with 24 chromosomes…..Jesus had to return to heaven. . He was born in 1 A.D. He is now 2022 years old. HE LIVES!
How come Jesus is never old? He stays young! What fun!
We are saved by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ, a Jew…
2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 2Co 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Champion of champions is Our God. . . He will defend His Kingdom to the utmost! Let not His patience surprise you!
He can and He will come, never late, but always ON TIME!
Repent and be at peace with Him…forever and a day.
Just as the Children of Israel were about to be taken away from being slaves to Pharaoh . . . they were to make a “mark” with the “blood of the lamb” upon the doorposts of their house. . . the destroying angel passed over those who were saved by the “blood of the lamb” . . . who came to die. . .years later, in Jerusalem, Jesus Christ the Lamb of God.
Today if you hear His Holy Spirit call you to rest and turn to Him, because you sign and cry for the abominations you are seeing. . . He will put His mark of HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS…upon your head. . . in your heart and in your mind. . .Jesus is your King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
Ellen White knew the path of females and the men who tried to do away with her visions and dreams. . . Mothers who love their children would never want to see them destroyed. . . and Ellen White lost her son, at a young age. She was widowed and took up the work her husband was doing in writing articles.
I wish to share a few of her quotes that have brought me closer to knowing the God who says He is like a mother hen. . . who cares for her chicks. . .by hiding them under her wing.
My Favorite Ellen White Quotes That Point Back To the Bible
By Connie Anderson author of The Red Horse, War Against God’s Government
“Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled, yet the time is passing, and the people are asleep. They refuse to humble their souls and be converted. Not a great while longer will the Lord bear with the people who have such great and important truths revealed to them, but who refuse to bring these truths into their individual experiences. The time is short. God is calling; will you hear? Will you receive His message? Will you be converted before it is too late? Soon, very soon, every case will be decided for eternity.” Letter 106, 1909, Manuscript Release No. 59—3 Published 1981. Idolaters Killed
Eze 9:1 He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand. Eze 9:2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer’s inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brazen altar. Eze 9:3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side; Eze 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. Eze 9:5 And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Eze 9:6 Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men who were before the house. Eze 9:7 And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city. Eze 9:8 And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem? Eze 9:9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not. Eze 9:10 And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.
Eze 9:11 And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me.
August 3, 1903, “How comes the word that I have declared that New York is to be swept away by a tidal wave. (Revelation 8:8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea.) This I have never said. I have said, as I looked at the great buildings going up there, story after story: ‘What terrible scenes will take place when the Lord shall arise to shake terribly the earth! Then the words of Revelation 18:1-3 will be fulfilled.’ The Fall of Babylon Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, (like thunder) saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. (Life Sketches of Ellen White p. 411-412.)
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 for 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, even to that same time; and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one 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.
Manuscript Release # 918 “In the night I was, I thought, in a room but not in my own house. I was in a city, where I knew not, and I heard expression after expression. I rose up quickly in bed and saw from my window large balls of fire. Jetting out were sparks, in the form of arrows, and buildings were being consumed, and in a very few minutes the entire block of buildings was falling and the screeching and mournful groans came distinctly to my ears. I cried out, in my raised position, to learn what was happening: Where am I, and where is our family circle? Then I awoke. But could not tell where I was for I was in another place than home. I said, Oh Lord, where am I and what shall I do? It was a voice that spoke, “Be not afraid. Nothing shall harm you.”
“I was instructed that destruction hath gone forth upon cities. The word of the Lord will be fulfilled. Isaiah 29:19-24 (Isa 29:19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. Isa 29:20 For the terrible one is brought to naught, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: Isa 29:21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproves in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of naught. Isa 29:22 Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. Isa 29:23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel. Isa 29:24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.)
I dared not move, not knowing where I was. I cried unto the Lord, What does it mean? These represented that which will be; but warn My people to cease from putting their trust in men who are not obedient to my warnings and who despise My reproof, for the day of the Lord is right upon the world when evidence shall be made sure. Those who have followed the voices that would turn things upside down will themselves be turned where they cannot see, but will be as blind men.”
These words were given to me from Isaiah 30: (A Rebellious People
Isa 30:8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: Isa 30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Isa 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: Isa 30:11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us. Isa 30:12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon: Isa 30:13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant. Isa 30:14 And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters’ vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a shard to take fire from the hearth or to take water withal out of the pit. Isa 30:15 For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.
I pray the Word of the Lord, we, in repentance, with the humility of Moses, and Paul we find in God’s love in the Ten Commandments, and we do not “take the mark of the beast.”. . . .God can see the “mark” He puts on our foreheads and on our hands, that show to Him, He alone deserves our worship. . . and we do not want to be found “wanting” like the High Priest, and Judas who betrayed Jesus, by thinking the death of one Jew, would protect those who cried out, “Let his blood, (let his death) be upon the heads of our children and their children.”
The Holocaust reminds all kindred’s, brothers, and nations, of the curse brought down upon the heads of those who “thought, the death of one righteous Jew . . . . who was God, coming to earth like a man, was impossible, certainly this could not be the “man” God sent to save the World?
Do not pass judgment on those who claim their salvation is found in bowing down to worship, Jesus Christ whose blood sacrifice is our only means of salvation!
Kathy had a way of using words to convey her inmost thoughts about how she became the daughter of a very wealthy man, but she had to find her own happiness, in making her own clothes. He would pay for the materials, scissors, pins, and cloth, but not a store-bought dress.
A child of a wealthy doctor, the man who owned the top floor of the Sheridan Hotel on Waikiki was where she was sure she would spend Christmas. . . each year. She had two homes, like two cities, like the Tale of Two Cities.
One she lived in Long Beach, in the Mayor’s old house near Signal Hill where oil was found. The other city or house, was where ever his father was living with his latest wife, including the Beverley Hills Mansion in Hollywood or his shack in Palm Springs with a mirror on the ceiling above their bed.
True Story Kathy lived in two worlds at college in La Sierra, when I arrived without a roommate, Kathy took me in. The true Tale of Two Cities is a likely frame for our present-day life of Nations in a way a kind of civil war. Yet far away in a little land, not larger than New Jersey the spiritual battle and war for GOD to win our souls to Him. . . on a rock. . . which represents His solid connection to our world, and something stable, like His Kingdom in Heaven. . . we can only guess what His Palace looks like, but it must be something like the Taj Mahal studded with jewels.
Israel was born out of World War II . . . a haven of rest for the Jews, but not just the Jewish men dressed in their priestly robes and hats. . .did Jesus come to save. . . . Jesus came to His own and they received Him him NOT!
And lest we kick this crippling thought out the door. . . can Jesus be knocking at your door, with a Bible in His hand to show you the words He knew before “it” would happen, the “KINGDOM OF GOD” would again be chosen for the WORLD to know, there is a place where right it right and wrong is wrong, and we voluntarily choose to obey rather than see Jesus crucified and hung on a cross?
The understanding will read between the lines, where Jesus condemns no one. . . He just gives us time to vote for which King we wishto seat on His Throne in Heaven. . . the one who can CREATE and the one who can and must be destroyed, is the man of sin. . . who must be revealed as the one who thinks he can change the times and laws of God, which are written in stone, that lay in the Ark of the Covenant of His Promise to save all who call upon His name because it is His Righteousness, that saves us. And in all humility, no one is perfect, we all have flaws and are living in a world of confusion, much like Babylon in its day.
In order to come out of confusion, hypocrisy, and ignorance, we come face to face with the laws of His Government, packed away in a gold box that will return to The Temple Mount, where Jesus became our Sanctuary. . . and in fifty days after He rose from the grave and went to heaven, His Holy Spirit returned to Earth, to the Disciples of Christ, to give the final benediction to the LIFE OF CHRIST.
Nowhere have I seen a man like Elijah taken to heaven in a Chariot of Fire. . .but the promise is. . .. the two witnesses in Revelation 11 will help bring the Ark of the Covenant out of hiding and the antichrist will bring fire down from heaven, to destroy those who destroy His Law and kill His prophets.
Except there is only ONE who can raise the dead AND lift them up and off this earth and take them to Heaven. And the devil can’t do it. The devil can’t “go up” to heaven and brag of his accomplishments. . . because he has been thrown down to the ground, he has destroyed.
For a thousand years satan will walk through the ruins of this planet for inciting others to destroy each other. And for a thousand years, those who have voluntarily invited Jesus Christ to control their thoughts and actions will be in God’s Kingdom, visiting the New Jerusalem, that comes down, to set down, a CITY that is over 7 million feet high and wide and city walls wide enough for three chariots to pass each other.
Our highest mountains are around 27,000 feet high . . . and God’s New Jerusalem is 7,000,000 feet high. . . on twelve steps of solid rock, with 12 gates named by His Disciples. And twelve is the number you want to be in, as His loyal thankful souls, to be saved by his Grace.
Think of it! A City four square 7,000,000 feet wide, 7,000,000 feet tall some 260 times taller than our highest mountains, with seven mountains in it, with a stream of running water going through it, and mansions prepared for us to rest in. . . for there will be no night there.
Hotel New Jerusalem for us who wish to live by the House Rules God has set up in His Commandments, by those who wish to be voluntarily obedient to His words.
The Tale of Two Cities, one with chaos and confusion, one with a Tree of fruits and vegetables, hovering over the River of Life, with a central plain for us to see His table that goes without end, where we will sit down to eat with Him when he calls us.
If God is calling you to His Kingdom, with a grape in His hand, it means He has not eaten a grape until we sit down with Him in His Kingdom to eat with Him.
If you can envision a place of happiness without water leaks, electric bills, and fountains of ink on pages to read about, “how to fix our problems”…you can begin at the beginning in GENESIS to read of the MYSTERY OF GODLINESS. . .and how God plans to renew our land by letting it rest for a thousand years, before He recreates earth. . .and brings it back to its pristine state.
Which city would you wish to end up in? Saved by His Grace?
“Beam me up Lord!” she said and I laughed. Me too? I wanted to have her zeal in wishing Jesus would come soon! There’s nothing I would like better than to camp in a campground in Heaven!
Isa 14:5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the scepter of the rulers. Isa 14:6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth. Isa 14:7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.
Once to every man and nation Comes the moment to decide In the strife of truth with falsehood, For the good or evil side Some great cause, God’s new Messiah, Offering each the bloom or blight, And the choice goes by forever “Twixt that darkness and that LIGHT.”
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
You don’t need a gun. . .you need the protection of the Lamb of God!
