Revelation 20 - Great White Throne

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.

The great white throne, the holy throne, and him who set on it. The most holy one who is separated apart from all creation, for he is greater; who can compare him with any created thing? He is above all powers and glory.

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.

Before the great white throne, were those in the second resurrection; the dead, small and the great, standing before the very God who created them. The Father God, of Jesus Christ and the saints, the redeemed. Here he sat and before him all unsaved people must stand and give an account for all they did in their lives. No sin may enter heaven, for heaven is a holy dwelling place of God and His spiritual people.The books were opened, perhaps containing a record of each life and the opportunities to receive God, that were ignored or turned down. Everything would be judged by God's righteousness. The book of life was opened, containing the names of the redeemed.

Luke 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Phil 4:3 And I entreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.

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.

Who were these at the great white throne? They were those whose names were not written in the book of life. Those who followed the ways of iniquity. Some were those who worshipped the beast, the antichrist.

Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Rev 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

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.

The sea is mentioned along with hell as holding the dead. The dead bodies and the dead souls were delivered up in spiritual bodies and every person was judged according to their works.

Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

What of these spiritual bodies of the dead? In some places they were described as a worm.

Job 25:4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?
Job 25:5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.
Job 25:6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

Psa 22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

Isa 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

Worms could also refer to torment and reproach.

Mark 9:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Isa 41:14 Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.

Are you a worm? Then turn to Jesus he will forgive your sins. The caterpiller worm shall be transformed into a beautiful butterfly. The dead shall receive new life in Christ Jesus.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Don't wait to come to the Father at the great white throne judgment. It will be too late to be forgiven.

Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Death and hell are are cast into the lake of fire. What does this mean? It means from that time on, no one shall die, for all in Christ shall live. Hell is cast into the lake of fire? this is a dwelling place for the wicked, it is going to a place of everlasting torment. Will hell be empty? No, it will be full.

Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

The dead without Christ Jesus shall go to everlasting torment in the lake of fire. The place of hell, the dwelling place of the spiritually dead whose souls live as worms in an eternal place of separation from God. Avoid it. You do not want to come to Jesus now, you want no part of God? This could be your everlasting home. For the Christian, now, we must warn the lost, we cannot live in self centered ease, when so many shall have eternal damnation. It is time to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Believe in Jesus Christ and receive eternal life.

Revelation 20 - First Resurrection

First Resurrection

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.

Thrones, perhaps the thrones of those who will reign with Christ as kings and judges during the Millennium.

Rev 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Cor 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

Included are the martyrs that would not submit to the beast, nor take his mark.

Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Those in the first resurrection are the blessed of God who are given eternal life and who are given authority in the Millennium.

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.

Those who return with Christ in their glorified bodies, are no longer subject to sin or judgment. The second resurrection are the damned, without Christ. They will be judged according to their works. They are cursed, powerless, and without any honor or hope. Some are teaching that hell is just death and that the second resurrection judgment, the great white throne judgment sends every one to destruction; no suffering and no memory. The Bible does not say this. It is a time to receive an eternal body to be placed in a place of torment. Hell was created for satan and his angels; evil humans go there too. Those beings who go there shall be tormented day and night forever.

The devils know this.

Mat 8:29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

Mark 5:7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.
Mark 5:8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.

The rich man in hell knows.

Luke 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
Luke 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

Jesus spoke of it.

Mat 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Mat 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever 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 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.

Do you know the truth? There is eternal torment, but God sent his son to be tormented and shamed, taking sins punishment in your place.

Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Jesus paid the price to give you eternal life with him. Jesus is the way to be forgiven of sin. No sin shall enter God's presence. Will you be in the first resurrection, or the second? Decide now before it is too late. Humble yourself before almighty God and ask Jesus to forgive you and to give you eternal life.

Revelation 20 - Satan bound

Satan bound

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.

An angel, come down from heaven, with the key, the power and authority, to open the dark bottomless pit. He also had a great chain in his hand. This was symbolic of the binding of satan. Satan is a spirit, so the binding is in the spirit. The disciples of Jesus Christ, have power over the spirits given to them now.

Mat 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Even with this power, satan has continued to send lies and opposition to the Church. Here in Revelation, we see that at the coming of Christ, he shall be spiritually bound with a spiritual chain.

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.

The old devil, shall be bound and cast into a bottomless pit, outer darkness, for a thousand years, the time of Jesus' reign as king over the people and nations of the earth. He was not yet cast into the lake of fire. That deceiver will be loosed one final time at the end of the thousand years; and yes he will deceive many of the descendants of Adam to follow him in rebellion against the authority of God. That disobedient spirit is strong today, but when Jesus reigns, he will not allow it. God is love yes, but he is never tolerant of sins. The authority of God will keep order by the rod of iron, no soft winking at crime, abortion, and gross sins. Righteousness shall reign, and because of this satan had to be bound.

In our Internet chat rooms, satan must be bound also. The liar and divider must be removed or ignored, to insure the peace of God and to allow the seeker to find him without opposition within the room. A church service could not continue, if people stood up and said opposing words during the preaching. These will be removed, as the angel removed satan from the Kingdom of God on earth. We must be led by the Spirit of God, through the whole word of God. What Paul spoke was the word of God as much as what was spoken by Jesus and the prophets. We do not cut out parts of the Bible that convict us of sin. We are to cut out the sins, not the word of truth.

Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Eph 4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
Eph 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
Luke 17:4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

The Mighty Word of God

The Mighty Word of God

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;

An angel clothed in light summoning the birds of the air, the buzzards, the hawks, the ravens, the owls, all that eat meat, and to all the fowls that fly in the heavens; high flying birds search the ground for food. There will be a feast of dead flesh at the coming of the LORD.

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.

All will be killed that have not God's Spiritual seal, those under the blood of the Lamb. It will be too late to repent. Every opportunity had been given, but they would not.

Psa 81:11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
Psa 81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels.
Psa 81:13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways!
Psa 81:14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
Psa 81:15 The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.
Psa 81:16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

Jesus is our rock and his word is as honey to our soul.

Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

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.

The beast, the final antichrist, the man of sin, the son of perdition. The devil in a man summons all the earth's mighty men to fight against him that sat on the horse. The demons and principalities and powers of the air join with them.

Eph 6:12 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.

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.

The beast and the false prophet were immediately cast alive and they shall remain alive in agony, into the lake of fire with the smelly burning brimstone, or sulfur. The smell of rotten eggs.

Dan 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

Jesus, the Word of God, broke the power of satan, the beast, without hand. He spoke and it was so.

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.

Those who remained, the kings and mighty armies, also were slain without hand, by the sword. The sword coming forth from the mouth of God the Son, the Word of God. Those who think today, that the Word is foolishness; who prefer their own words, their thoughts from evil sources and evil ideas, shall be judged by the very word they despise. I love the Word of God.

Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

1 Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1 Cor 1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1 Cor 1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1 Cor 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
1 Cor 1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1 Cor 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1 Cor 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1 Cor 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1 Cor 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1 Cor 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1 Cor 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1 Cor 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1 Cor 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1 Cor 1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

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 1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

Out of the mouth of Jesus came the spoken word, the sword of the spirit. By His Word he will judge the nations.

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

It will be God's righteous judgment of the nations. There will no longer be unrighteous leaders, dictators and kings doing their own will. The King of Kings shall rule the nations. Those who are evil shall be crushed as the grapes of wrath; 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.

His true name: Faithful and True; KING OF KINGS. AND LORD OF LORDS. All hail the mighty Son of God come in Majesty and Glory.

Jesus has other names, many only he knows:

Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

God the Father and the Son, share their names and glory.

Dan 2:47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.

1 Tim 6:13 I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;
1 Tim 6:14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1 Tim 6:15 Which in his times he shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

Satan tried to take God's glory upon himself and through satan, many are tempted to be as gods, having their own glory. When Jesus shall come, all those who seek self glory apart from God, shall be crushed. He comes with a rod of iron to rule the nations in righteousness and glory.

It saddens me to see New Age religion and other false ways replacing the God of our country. Our nation was founded on the principles of the word of God. The rebellion of the 1960's has as it's goal to replace the traditions and values of our nation, including the Christian faith. To recreate America; no longer a land of moral values, but a nation of pagans. We are seeing the result as darkness is covering our land. God still has a remnant who serve him, but many will rush to the beast who will promise peace and prosperity. All these shall be destroyed and those that are of God in Jesus Christ, shall live forever.

Revelation 19 - Victory


Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

John describes in metaphors what he saw, as he saw Jesus coming as King on the white horse.

His vesture, His garment or robe, was dipped in blood. The blood shed at Calvary for our sins, the blood that defeated the power of satan; and another name is given: The Word of God.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
John 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Can you see who Jesus is? Where are you in regard to Jesus? Have you His victory? Hear Paul, about this.

2 Cor 5:4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
2 Cor 5:5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
2 Cor 5:6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
2 Cor 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
2 Cor 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

We are the Lord's people. To be absent in this life places us with Jesus. We shall return with him in victory! We are in God's army, whether in this body now, or returning with him and the angels.

Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

That's us, the saints of God who have gone to heaven, by death or by the rapture. We shall be clothed in white linen, glorified with him, white and clean with no sin or memories of sin to stain our minds or bodies.

Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
Jude 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Jude 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
Jude 1:25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen.

We are cleansed by the blood of the Lamb, now and forever. We are the Lord's mighty army, not by our flesh or will, but by the Spirit and will of Almighty God. Feeling defeated? Stand up and take up your sword and shield. Prepare your hearts and minds for the victory in Jesus.

Revelation 19 - The Names of Jesus

The Names of Jesus

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.

John looked into heaven in his vision. He was seeing future events. Behold a white horse; and he that sat on it was called Faithful and True. From the world's movies we might think of a cowboy hero the Lone Ranger; a law abiding person seeking justice, enforcing the law. There is one much greater then this fictional character coming and he has never broken the law, he is the perfect Son of God. He that sat upon the white horse was Faithful and True. Note that the names are actually names, capitalized. As God the Son, He is faithful and he keeps his promises. He came from the Father, with the character of His Father, God.

He is Faithful

Deu 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

2 Th 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

He is True

John 3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

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 1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

The first mention of eyes was in Genesis:

Gen 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Knowing good from evil is judgment.

There is only one man without sin who is judge of all: Jesus Christ, son of man and Son of God. He has been given all judgment.

Eyes as a flame of fire represents fiery judgment, from the Judge, Jesus Christ.

Prov 5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
Prov 5:22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

Mat 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
Mat 3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

and on his head were many crowns

He had all authority as king of Kings and the Son of God.

Rev 4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
Rev 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

The twenty four elders were those respected by men as leaders. They throughtheir crowns at the feet of Jesus, in worship. What honor and glory do we have? It is to be surrendered to Jesus, who is Master of all.

Mat 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

John 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
John 5:27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Jesus came the first time as a humble servent, the Lamb of God who took upon himself the sins of the world. He shall return again as triumpant king and judge and ruler of all.

and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

No man can know God, nor His Son, unless it be revealed to them by the Spirit of God through the Word of God. Names are revealed to us in time. Looking back we see a name:

Mat 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
Mat 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Mat 27:11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.

John 19:19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
John 19:20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
John 19:21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
John 19:22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

Jesus was accused of being the king of the Jews and this was used as the reason to execute him. They called it blaspheme. We know that he was true and faithful and just. Jesus has many names revealed in the Bible and yet there are more we shall learn of Him, for His glory is without end.

Not forgiven?

if your not forgiven then you lose the promise of eternal life???????
Sounds serious doesn't it? Jesus helps us to forgive, but, that don't mean the people we forgive are forgiven by God. They must face him.
From Matthew study in Eaglewings...
Debtors, in that we have sinned against one another. God's moral justice holds us accountable when we break God's laws. Only Jesus never broke a law of God, so all are debtors. Those forgiven in Jesus are free, but are not free to accuse another, for all are sinners by nature. Jesus has forgiven us so we must forgive others. If we do not forgive, he will withhold our forgiveness.
God's justice would make us all under the penalty of sin, if it were not for Jesus. We receive mercy and grace, not his justice and punishment. Because of this we should forgive others as we have been forgiven. Once again, we do it because we love Him and want to please him...Gary

Revelation 19 - No Angel Worship

No angel worship

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.

John worshipped the messenger, an angel, and was told to stop. Angels are fellowservants. Worship God not angels. Angels are creations of God and we are not to worship the creation.

Exo 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Exo 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Any prophecy that does not glorify Jesus, is false. He is the one the Spirit testifies of. A prophesy is truth, by God's Spirit of truth.

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Too many are following angel spirit guides from the devil. They receive twisted messages that do not follow the truth of the Bible. Let no one fool you by promises of evolving to a higher existence. It is all demonic New Age false teaching.

Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

Revelation 19 - Marriage Feast of the Lamb

Marriage feast 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.

Wow! All heaven breaks forth in praise. God reigns, he is the all mighty God of all. He is omnipotent, all powerful. Jesus is about to be united with his people and a true new world order is about to happen. We hear of "the new world order" which is nothing but the preparation for the antichrist. When Jesus comes He will put the world back in order. All are praising with a loud voice from the depths of their beings.

In our churches, worship is often according to tradition. Some worship with quiet order, a quiet worship. This can be appropriate at some times. Others worship loudly, sometimes it is only flesh, But at times it is with a whole heart. Some jump and run and dance, according to church acceptance, if it is from a heart, let it be. In heaven it is all good, all pure praise from glorified beings and it is in unity.

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.

There is great joy in heaven, because it is time for the marriage of the Lamb; the joining to his people from earth who were made spiritual beings, through faith in their Lord Jesus Christ.

"In Biblical times a marriage involved two major events, the betrothal and the wedding. These were normally separated by a period of time during which the two individuals were considered husband and wife and as such were under the obligations of faithfulness. The wedding began with a procession to the bride's house, which was followed by a return to the house of the groom for the marriage feast. By analogy, the church, espoused to Christ by faith, now awaits the parousia when the heavenly groom will come for his bride and return to heaven for the marriage feast which lasts throughout eternity." (Mounce)

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.

The wedding garment is the righteousness of Christ. He has made her clean by His word and by his shed blood for her sins. She herself has made her daily walk clean; purity, loyalty, faithfulness. She was made clean by the blood of the Lamb and white, by her being glorified with him. New glorified heavenly bodies to follow him back to earth for a thousand years and for eternity with him in the new Jerusalem. The new Jerusalem is also clean and pure as the bride.

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.

A holy place for a holy people to dwell with the anointed Groom, our Lord Jesus Christ and the Father of the groom, Almighty God.

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.

Jesus Himself eagerly anticipates this marriage supper. He spoke longingly of the day when He will drink of the fruit of the vine again, with His disciples in the kingdom.

Mat 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

On that day, everyone will see the church for what she really is: the precious bride of Jesus. "The Bride of Christ is a sort of Cinderella now, sitting among the ashes. She is like her Lord, 'despised and rejected of men'; the watchmen smite her, and take away her veil from her; for they know her not, even as they knew not her Lord. But when he shall appear, then shall she appear also, and in his glorious manifestation she also shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of the Father." (Spurgeon)

These are the true sayings of God.

John wants us to know for sure that the feast is real, not a fairy tale. This is not some made up false hope like so many religions, with fairies, gods and goddesses, This is a true event that shall take place at the end of the world.

Who are you serving?

Who are you serving?
One thing I learned recently, for myself. We are not perfect and because we are not yet acting always as Jesus we have things we need to do or improve in. The devil knows this too. He may send someone to condemn you with words, pointing out where you are not acting as Jesus. Here is the point I want to say. The Spirit leads us, the devil drives us. When we do the right thing and have no peace, perhaps it is because the devil was accusing us and still does. We feel good when doing God's work by his Spirit. Here is the scripture for this:
Jesus being tempted in the wilderness 
Mat 4:3  And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
Mat 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Jesus could make bread appear, he did so at least twice to feed the four-thousand and the five-thousand. The difference is that to make bread at satan's command would be obeying satan and being his servant, Jesus obeyed God and made bread for thousands, not just for himself. God was glorified.
Paul spoke of people preaching with wrong motives:
Phil 1:14  And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
Phil 1:15  Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:
Phil 1:16  The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
Phil 1:17  But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.
Phil 1:18  What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
Phil 1:19  For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
Christ was preached! Rewards will come according to their hearts.
Sometimes we do the right thing and receive no joy, for it was not of God's Spirit.  One final thought: If we do good for others, it really does not matter if we feel great, it is still good. The reward may not be there for us in heaven if we do something to please man or satan; but we are commanded by God to do good works. The reward comes when we do this from a heart of love and obedience to our God.

Revelation 19 - Celebration


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:

A great voice, people in heaven together before the coming of Christ to the earth 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.

These were the saints who came out of the great tribulation.

Rev 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

Rev 7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

Rev 7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

This was a time of celebration for the people who suffered in the world under the antichrist and were martyred. Perhaps the raptured church was here too, perhaps some were included in Rev 6.

Rev 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

The martyrs speak the highest word of praise: Aleluia (praise ye the LORD)

Rev 19:3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

In Revelation 18, Babylon's friends mourned her fall; but here, God's people celebrate it. The smoke of the evil that was the world system, shall receive everlasting torment. The fire shall burn forever. Is there any earthly pleasure worth eternal torment?

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.

The twenty four elders and the four angels, or heavenly creatures that were in the throne room, fell down worshipping God who sat on the throne, saying, Amen; (truly) Aleluia.

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.

Perhaps the voice was Jesus. The world mourned the destruction of Babylon as the angels and saints shouted praises.

Babylon Cast Down

Babylon thrown down

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.

Jer 51:62 Then shalt thou say, O LORD, thou hast spoken against this place, to cut it off, that none shall remain in it, neither man nor beast, but that it shall be desolate for ever.
Jer 51:63 And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this book, that thou shalt bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of Euphrates:
Jer 51:64 And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.

Babylon caused many to turn from the truth, the world system hates Jesus Christ and the people of God.

Mat 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Mat 18:7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

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;

No more celebrations, no more industry, but utter distruction of the world system of belief and those who trust in the world.

Psa 10:11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it.
Psa 10:12 Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
Psa 10:13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it.

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.

No more marriage, no more merchants; no more drugs and false trust in them. No sorceries andreligions of satan, induced by drug use.

Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

It was Israel that killed the prophets, but the world and the antichrist spirit of satan actually killed them. Babylon is the world whose spirit was of sin and evil. These things shall be destroyed at the second coming of Jesus Christ to earth.

Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels

Revelation 18 - Lament for Babylon

Lament for Babylon

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.

The kings stand back at a distance, for fear of her torment. These cities of commerce representing Babylon, shall be burning. The judgment will be sudden, in one hour. Are nuclear weapons used in this?

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!

Again much weeping and sadness from the merchants, the sellers of these luxuries. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee. The things lusted after, which may have included widespread pornography; and slaves, and souls of men. The forced use of men and women for the lusts of others. Much wealth comes from the lusts of people. They wept over the loss of their casinos, their fleshly pleasures and self-indulgences. There is no seeking after God, no mention of things that are pure and good. No remorse for sin.

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.

Those who came in ships, importing and exporting were grieving over the loss of commerce. Weeping and wailing over the loss of wealth and pleasures. They as the others, shall weep and wail forever in hell, for there was no seeking of God or turning to him for their adultery with the world.

Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Who is told to rejoice? Heaven, the angels, the holy apostles and prophets. Why? Because of God's righteous judgment. The world hated the apostles and prophets. They would not receive God's message and offer of salvation. They rejected the spiritual things of God, like Esau, for the lust of the here and now. The pleasures of the flesh.

Gen 25:29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:
Gen 25:30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.
Gen 25:31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
Gen 25:32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
Gen 25:33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
Gen 25:34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

They chose the pleasures of a short life instead of the right to be born-again of God and to receive eternal life.

Mat 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? Mat 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

2 Thes 2 - The Day of the LORD

The Day of the Lord

2 Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

The second coming of Christ to earth.

Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
Mark 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

2 Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

The day of Christ or the day of the LORD. This is referring to the second coming of Christ. It is at hand; or present would be a better translation, right now. They thought that they were in the very last days. That somehow Christ had called up the saints and they missed him, or perhaps he would come at the very end?

1 Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The day of the LORD

Isa 2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.
Isa 2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
Isa 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

Isa 13:6 Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

Isa 13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
Isa 13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

Joel 1:15 Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

Joel3:13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
Joel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.

Oba 1:15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.

Zep 1:14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
Zep 1:15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
Zep 1:16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
Zep 1:17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
Zep 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

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.

1 Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
1 Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
1 Th 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
1 Th 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
1 Th 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
1 Th 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
1 Th 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
1 Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

They were worried and concerned, for there was trouble all around them. It was a spiritual problem. For does not the devil attack our thoughts to trouble our human spirit? This is why we must trust the Holy Spirit of God, the Word of God and have a renewed mind: the mind of Christ.

Phil 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
John 14:4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Many today are becoming concerned by news reports, we must keep are eyes upon Jesus.

What must come before the day of the Lord?

It will be the time of Jacob's trouble, the last week of Daniel.

Jer 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

2 Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

The very end times will bring about the antichrist. He is mentioned prophetically in the Bible and the Bible is Gods truth. One characteristic of the time of the coming of the beast, is that people will no longer seek truth, there will be no absolutes, only opinions and confusion.

2 Tim 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

!n Revelation this is referred to as the spirit of Babylon. The adulteress woman represents this world wide religion.

Rev 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

A one world religion, represented as the false religion of Babylon. Islam now is the religion of Babylon. Others have pointed to Rome, or to apostate churches of Christ. Churches in name only, liberal, embracing all religions and no longer of truth. A religion all will embrace by agreeing with tolerance (of sin) and by fear of man.

Prov 29:24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not.
Prov 29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
Prov 29:26 Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the LORD.
Prov 29:27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

Even this world wide religion will be done away with about midpoint in the last week of Daniel.All will be forced to worship the beast.

Rev 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

The nations will come against the false religion and the woman and destroy her, so that all would worship the image of the beast. He will proclaim himself as God. This is allowed, for it must be to fulfill the scriptures.

The man of sin will be revealed.

2 Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Jesus warned of this man at the temple of God.

Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
Mat 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

Mat 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

The beast is spoken of in other names in other scriptures

The little horn

Dan 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
Dan 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

The king of fierce countenance

Dan 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
Dan 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
Dan 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

The prince, coming mid week

Dan 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The willful king

Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
Dan 11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

Comes in his own name

John 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

He has not yet been revealed.

Revelation 18 - Babylon is fallen

Babylon is Fallen

Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

The world at the end shall have no fear of God. God was cast out of their way of life, so God would cast them out. They would receive His wrath. Their sins remained. God wants us to fear him and to come to Jesus, but most will not.

Psa 103:11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
Psa 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
Psa 103:13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
Psa 103:14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

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.

God will require double from Babylon, according to her evil works: return twice to her of what she has taken or done wrong to others. This was required of the law that a thief pay back double. This indicates that most of the wealth was acquired by stealing.

Exo 22:4 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore 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.

First, she has glorified herself. A self centered ME culture, giving no glory to God or to the needs of those in need. She has lived deliciously, only the best for her own self-indulgence.

Luke 12:19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
Luke 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
Luke 12:21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

Justice is to give her much punishment and sorrow. Wow, self indulgent America, are we listening? Fear not, if you fear God and are in Christ Jesus, you shall not see the wrath of God.

Second is the sin of pride: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen,

Prov 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Prov 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
Prov 16:19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

The destruction of economic Babylon will come swiftly, in one day.

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.

Thirdly, Babylon avoided suffering: and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine

Even as she avoided God with her avoidance of suffering, even God shall send suffering to her.

Prov 6:15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

Mat 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Be encouraged, if you suffer in Christ

2 Cor 1:3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
2 Cor 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.
2 Cor 1:5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

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.

Like Lot's wife they look back at that which God called abomination and he destroyed by his angels.

Gen 19:26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Don't desire the evil of the world, but seek the food things of God.

Luke 12:29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
Luke 12:30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
Luke 12:31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Revelation 18 - Come out of Babylon

Come out 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.

After the fall of religious Babylon in chapter 17, at the mid point of the last week of Daniel's prophecy. The Beast becomes the only one that is to be worshipped.

Rev 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Another angel descends from heaven with great power, shining with the righteous glory of God. What is the power for?

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.

It is a heavenly proclamation: Babylon the great, representing the worlds greatness, is fallen. Fallen into sin and depravity, becoming the dwelling place of devils, and every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Birds are described as ministers of satan sent to remove Gods word. Birds are kept in cages in the city. The courts, the schools, the institutions are all controlled by birds that remove the word of God. Babylon representing the worlds cities, institutions and people has become absolutely morally depraved, given over to demons and every unclean thought and thing.

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.

All the nations, rulers and merchants have been corrupted by the world's love of the Spirit of Babylon, the antichrist, ungodly things. These things are written ahead of time to warn us.

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.

Come out of the world, be separated unto God. Take no part in her sins, says the second angel. Come out and be not judged by God. Jesus said this to us also.

John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.                                                                                     John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.                                                                  John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
John 17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
John 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

Revelation 17 - The ten horns

Ten horns

Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

Daniel interpreted the dream of the king, of a giant statue. In this were kingdoms represented by metals, he mentioned feet of iron and clay, the ten toes representing ten kings in alliance. Iron represented the Roman empire in Europe. European nations and other clay nations are probably represented, Those with alliances with European countries. They would receive power, one hour, a short time, with the beast. The devil promises more, but those who receive him, soon they see that he is a liar and he shall drive them to destruction.

Dan 2:32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
Dan 2:33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
Dan 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
Dan 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

The image would be crushed first at the feet that make war with Gods people in an alliance with the antichrist.

Rev 17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

These ten divided kingdoms of iron and clay, shall come together in unity serving the antichrist. They worship the woman, representing a one world false religion, for a time. They united against those who served the true God.

Rev 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

We see the results of their coming against Jesus at his return. Jesus shall overcome them. Daniel's prophesy says that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. The stone was the chief cornerstone of the church, Jesus Christ.

Mat 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Mat 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Rev 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

A one world religion, represented as the false religion of Babylon. Islam now is the religion of Babylon. Others have pointed to Rome, or to apostate churches of Christ. Churches in name only, liberal, embracing all religions and no longer of truth.

Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
Rev 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

The nations will come against the false religion and the woman and destroy her, so that all would worship the image of the beast. He will proclaim himself as God. This is allowed, for it must be to fulfill the scriptures.

Rev 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

The Babylon world system as it once was will be no longer. The woman representing the false one world religion will come down as the antichrist takes power in his hour leading to his final destruction. Utimately the beast would be no more, for he represented the strengths of the conquering nations of the statue. The statues fate was told by Daniel:

Dan 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Jesus shall reign.

The image of Jesus Christ

The Image of Jesus Christ
14     Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 1corithians 11
What about that verse
Do we only do half the bible or pick out the ones that fit?????
What does the Bible say?
Mat 2:23  And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.
Num 6:2  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:
Num 6:3  He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.
Num 6:4  All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.
Num 6:5  All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.
Nowhere does it say that Jesus partook of this vow. Do the pictures really show him as he appeared to men?
Isa 53:2  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
Isa 53:3  He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, andwe esteemed him not.
Isa 53:4  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
Isa 53:5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isa 53:6  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Exo 20:4  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Exo 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Exo 20:6  And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Exo 20:7  Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Rom 1:23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

We are to see Jesus in the Spirit
Heb 1:3  Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Col 1:14  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Col 1:15  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Col 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col 1:17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Col 1:18  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
Col 1:19  For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

John 14:9  Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

1 Cor 15:49  And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
John 20:29  Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
2 Cor 3:18  But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Cor 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2 Cor 4:5  For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
2 Cor 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Cor 4:7  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Rom 8:29  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Col 3:9  Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
Col 3:10  And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

Phil 2:5  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Phil 2:6  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Phil 2:7  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Phil 2:8  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Phil 2:9  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Phil 2:10  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Phil 2:11  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Gen 1:27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

1 Cor 15:45  And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
1 Cor 15:46  Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
1 Cor 15:47  The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
1 Cor 15:48  As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
1 Cor 15:49  And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
1 Cor 15:50  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
1 Cor 15:51  Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1 Cor 15:52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1 Cor 15:53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
1 Cor 15:54  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
 1 John 3:2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
The question is this; Are we in the image and likeness of Jesus?
