Jesus Points To The Book Of Daniel

Wednesday, October 4th, 2023

Jesus references the Book of Daniel concerning the end times which ties the Book of Daniel to the Book of Revelation.  It was important to Him so it should be important to us!

Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 13:

3  Now as Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked Him privately,

Jesus speaks privately to His four Jewish disciples.  His discourse is focused on the Jewish people whereas Paul’s writings are focused on the Gentiles.  They asked three questions in verse 4:

Tell us-

When will these things be?

What will be the sign of Thy coming?

When all these things will be fulfilled?”

Notice that they were asking of His return to earth.  They had no understanding or expectation of the catching away.

5 And Jesus, answering them, began to say: “Take heed that no one deceives you.

6 For many will come in My Name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many.

7 But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet.

8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.

9 “But watch out for yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues. You will be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony to them.

10 And the Gospel must first be preached to all the nations.

11 But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.

12 Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.

13 And you will be hated by all for My Name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

14 “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

The believers in Christ are not among those who will flee.  They will have been harpazo’d prior to the abomination of desolation.  Jesus Himself points to Daniel chapter 9 as the key to end-time prophecy and specifically the abomination of desolation as the key.  Whoso readeth, let him understand!

19 For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be.

The Bride of Christ will be spared and protected from the great tribulation but will be able to observe it from Heaven!

20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

21 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, He is there!’ do not believe it.

22 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

23 But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.

The elect are those who are included in the 144,000.

24  “But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;

25 the stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

26 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

27 And then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven.

Jesus warns the disciples twice, “Take heed that no one deceives you.”  Once at the beginning and once at the end.  How do we keep from being deceived?  By the whole Counsel of GOD Who has given us The Holy Spirit.

Jesus speaks of the end times and is recorded in Matthew, Mark, and Luke.  He tells us “Let the reader understand”.  It is vital that we understand what is happening before our eyes at this point in history.  Let our priorities reflect this understanding.

Worthy Is The Lamb

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2023

Worthy is The Lamb!

The Beloved Disciple recorded what he saw and heard by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 5:

11  Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the Throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,

12 saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain To receive:

Power (He is able)

and riches (there is no claim on Him which He cannot satisfy; He carries out all His promises)

and Wisdom, (Both secrets and practical knowledge- James 1:5)

And strength (which will disarm the powers of evil and overthrow satan)

and honor (every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord)

and glory (which is His alone)

and blessing!” (the inevitable climax of it all… Our redemption-Psalm 103)

13 And every creature which is in Heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him Who sits on the Throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”

14 Then the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him Who lives forever and ever.

Notice that The Lamb was to receive seven possessions whereas all creatures spoke of four to both the Lamb and Him Who sits on the Throne.  Riches, Wisdom, and strength were conveyed specifically to the Lamb.  These possessions would be employed by The Lion of Judah Who would be conquering the enemies on the earth.

Who is located where at this time?

The true church is now in Heaven worshipping Our Lord Jesus Christ.  The true church has been separated from those who were disqualified to be harpazo’d.  My deepest desire is to be inclusive by presenting these writings so that each reader will reprioritize if necessary.  The world’s goal is to draw us away from what is truly important.

The Nation of Israel in not in Heaven at this particular time.  Their persistence in rejecting Christ has come home to roost.  They will suffer through the great tribulation, and some will repent while others will defy the Truth.

The devil who is current the god of the world will end up in the lake of fire.  You can count on that!

Our Lord Jesus Christ will ultimately be on His Own Throne, and we will rule and reign with Him.

Peter wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Peter chapter 2:

9  But you are God’s chosen treasure—priests who are kings, a spiritual “nation” set apart as God’s devoted ones. He called you out of darkness to experience his marvelous light, and now He claims you as His very own. He did this so that you would broadcast His glorious wonders throughout the world.

Keep in mind that we ARE FATHER’S chosen treasure as we function as ambassadors of Christ to testify of Him by our words and actions.

10 For at one time you were not God’s people, but now you are. At one time you knew nothing of God’s mercy, because you hadn’t received it yet, but now you are drenched with it!

11 My Divinely Loved friends, since you are resident aliens and foreigners in this world, I appeal to you to divorce yourselves from the evil desires that wage war within you.

12 Live honorable lives as you mix with unbelievers, even though they accuse you of being evildoers. For they will see your beautiful works and have a reason to glorify God in the day He visits us.

13 In order to honor the Lord, you must respect and defer to the authority of every human institution, whether it be the highest ruler

14 or the governors He puts in place to punish lawbreakers and to praise those who do what’s right.

15 For it is God’s will for you to silence the ignorance of foolish people by doing what is right.

16 As God’s Loving servants, you should live in complete freedom, but never use your freedom as a cover-up for evil.

17 Recognize the value of every person and continually show Love to every believer. Live your lives with great reverence and in Holy Awe of God. Honor your rulers.

The Precious Blood!

Monday, October 2nd, 2023

Worthy is The Lamb to open the scroll out of FATHER’S Right Hand!

The Beloved Disciple recorded what he saw and heard by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 5:

4  So I wept much (convulsively), because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.

5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”

It is important to note that the titles of Jesus in chapters 2 & 3, were all directed to the true church who are now in Heaven.  Now His titles are Jewish in nature.

6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the Throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though It had been slain, having Seven Horns and Seven Eyes, which are the Seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the Right Hand of Him Who sat on the Throne.

8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your Blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,

10 And have made us kings and priests to Our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”

Jesus is the only One Who was qualified to redeem you and me.  The Book of Ruth describes the requirements of a kinsman-redeemer.

Boaz = the Kinsman-Redeemer

Law of Redemption allows Naomi (a Jew) to get her land back

Law of Levirate Marriage allows Ruth to be the Gentile Bride  (Lev 25:23-25)

The Redemption is sealed

Jesus’ precious Blood provided the only way we could be redeemed.  We must constantly be aware of this, especially when we take communion.  Let us not be found unworthy.

His Blood has made us both kings and priests unlike the Old Testament priests who were not allowed to rule.  Notice that we are to rule on earth with Jesus so do not be concerned about the earth.  FATHER assures us that the earth will be prepared for HIS Son and us.

Daniel was shown by THE SPIRIT the scroll to be opened at this time in chapter 12:

1  “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people (the Jews) shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book (scroll).

2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting Life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.

3 Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.

4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the Words, and seal the book (Scroll) until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

There is no question that knowledge throughout the earth, is increasing in an exponential fashion through the Internet.  No other time in history has this reality occurred.  I would submit that the time is not only near, but FATHER has told me numerous times:

“Now is the time!”

I believe that this is why HE has had me focus on The Revelation of Jesus Christ.  I am expecting an Awakening to manifest like no other we have seen in our lifetime.  The inhabitants of the earth will be given an opportunity to experience HIS mercy before the earth experience HIS justice and judgment.

The Scroll To Be Opened

Saturday, September 30th, 2023

John, the Beloved Disciple, describes the legal process he sees occurring in The Throne Room of Heaven.

The Beloved Disciple recorded by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 5:

1  And I saw in the Right Hand of Him who sat on the Throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals.

2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?”

3 And no one in Heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.

4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.

5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”

In order to understand what John saw, we must pay close attention to the scroll itself.  There was writing on both sides of the scroll which indicated that it was a specific, unusual legal document, an opisthograph.  The writings on the outside of the scroll were instructions pertaining to the opening of the document.

Only The Righteous Judge, The Creator of Heaven and earth, Truth and Life, would be able to possess such a document in The Throne Room.  The ultimate Court proceeding is at hand!  There is a legal transaction about to occur.

As a reference in the Old Testament, it is written by THE SPIRIT in Jeremiah chapter 32:

1 The Word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar.

2 For then the king of Babylon’s army besieged Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which was in the king of Judah’s house.

The king of Judah did not like the Word of THE LORD so he put Jeremiah in prison:

3 For Zedekiah king of Judah had shut him up, saying, “Why do you prophesy and say, ‘Thus says the LORD: “Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it;

4 and Zedekiah king of Judah shall not escape from the hand of the Chaldeans, but shall surely be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him face to face, and see him eye to eye;

5 then he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there he shall be until I visit him,” says the LORD; “though you fight with the Chaldeans, you shall not succeed”‘?”

How does a leader respond who has been judged by Truth, he imprisons the messenger.  It was true for Jeremiah as it was true for John The Baptist.

6 And Jeremiah said, “The Word of the LORD came to me, saying,

7 ‘Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle will come to you, saying, “Buy my field which is in Anathoth (answers to prayer), for the right of redemption is yours to buy it.”‘

8 Then Hanamel my uncle’s son came to me in the court of the prison according to the Word of the LORD, and said to me, ‘Please buy my field that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin; for the right of inheritance is yours, and the redemption yours; buy it for yourself.’ Then I knew that this was the Word of the LORD.

9 So I bought the field from Hanamel, the son of my uncle who was in Anathoth, and weighed out to him the money-seventeen shekels of silver.

The field (representing the world) was given to the one who had the right of redemption.  However, he had to pay the price demanded of the owner.

10 And I signed the deed and sealed it, took witnesses, and weighed the money on the scales.

11 So I took the purchase deed, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open;

12 and I gave the purchase deed to Baruch (blessed) the son of Neriah (lamp of Jehovah), son of Mahseiah (Jehovah is a shelter), in the presence of Hanamel my uncle’s son, and in the presence of the witnesses who signed the purchase deed, before all the Jews who sat in the court of the prison.

The name Hanamel means “GOD is gracious”.

13 “Then I charged Baruch before them, saying,

14 ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “Take these deeds, both this purchase deed which is sealed and this deed which is open, and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may last many days.”

15 For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.”‘

This entire legal transaction, by design, points to the legal transaction to occur in The Throne Room.  Our redemption required a legal transaction which Jesus satisfied and appeared in The Court of Heaven on our behalf.

Throne Room Details

Friday, September 29th, 2023

John, the Beloved Disciple, further describes what he sees in The Throne Room of Heaven.

The Beloved Disciple recorded by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 4:

6   Before the Throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the Throne, and around the Throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.

7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.

8 The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying:

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, Who Was and Is and Is To Come!”

Isaiah recorded what he saw by THE SPIRIT in chapter 6:

1  In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a Throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His Robe filled the Temple.

2 Above It stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

3 And one cried to another and said:

“Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!”

4 And the posts of the Door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the House was filled with smoke.

During the decade of the 1990’s, FATHER led me to pray one hour before work every weekday morning. In the year 1995, one morning I was praying and speaking “GOD this and GOD that” …  Suddenly, HE stopped me and said, “Quit calling me GOD.  You can address ME as FATHER or LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, you choose, but quit calling ME GOD!”  I chose FATHER!  From that point on, each time I would here someone preaching and addressing HIM as GOD, I would cringe.  I believe that this correction led to me having a more sensitive understanding of THE FEAR OF THE LORD.  Clearly, the those creatures in the Throne Room fully understand THE FEAR OF THE LORD as they worship HIM.  We should have the same mindset!

Out of the deepest respect and awe of FATHER, I intentionally capitalize descriptive Words associated with HIM, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit.

FATHER spoke to Moses in Exodus chapter 30:

17  Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying:

18 “You shall also make a laver of bronze, with its base also of bronze, for washing. You shall put it between the tabernacle of meeting and the altar. And you shall put water in it,

The sea of glass is associated with the laver.  The laver was made of bronze which symbolizes judgment, and the water symbolizes The Word washing away our sins.  In the Throne Room, the sea of glass can be walked on, and we are no longer required to be washed of sin.  Sin cannot exist in the Presence of FATHER!

The four creatures symbolized the four Gospels and their different facets.  The following table provides a comparison.

Once again, FATHER provides us with HIS Integrated Message System which no man could reproduce.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Psalm chapter 40:

7  Then I said, “Behold, I come; In the Scroll of the Book it is written of Me.

8  I delight to do Your Will, O My God, And Your Law is within My Heart.”

9 I have proclaimed the Good News (Gospel) of righteousness In the great assembly; Indeed, I do not restrain My Lips, O LORD, You Yourself know.

10 I have not hidden Your righteousness within My Heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your Lovingkindness and Your Truth From the great assembly.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 10:

5  Therefore, when He (Jesus) came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a Body You have prepared for Me.

6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure.

7 Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come- In the volume of the Book it is written of Me- To do Your Will, O God.‘”

The Bible IS “the volume of the Book” and Paul understood this revelation as you and I should.

The Seven Lamps

Thursday, September 28th, 2023

John, the Beloved Disciple, sees the seven lamps of fire in The Throne Room of Heaven.

The Beloved Disciple recorded by The Holy Spirit in Revelation 4:

5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the Throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

John recorded what he saw in Revelation 1:

12  Then I turned to see the Voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands,

13 and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band.

The purpose of a lampstand is to shed light.  John wrote in his Gospel, chapter 1:

6  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe.

8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 8:

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the Light of Life.”

And in chapter 9:

5 As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.”

Paul also spoke of The Light as he recorded by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Corinthians chapter 4:

3  But even if our Gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,

4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the Light of the Gospel of the Glory of Christ, Who is the Image of God, should shine on them.

The function of the true church is to light the world up with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  The light is to be pure and not exalt anyone else.  The fivefold ministry is called to serve the congregation, not control, or lord over it.  Light will overtake darkness as it shines brightly.  As the followers of Christ mature, they will be as lampstands themselves and provide The Light to others.  If a church is not glorifying Jesus Christ in all areas, it is not fulfilling the Divine Intent assigned to it.

John the Baptist, the greatest prophet, spoke in Matthew chapter 3:

11  Those who repent I baptize with water, but there is coming a Man after me who is more powerful than I. In fact, I’m not even worthy enough to pick up His sandals. He will submerge you into union with the Spirit of Holiness and with a raging fire!

12 He comes with a winnowing fork in His Hands and comes to His threshing floor to sift what is worthless from what is pure. And He is ready to sweep out His threshing floor and gather His wheat into his granary, but the straw He will burn up with a Fire that can’t be extinguished!”

The lampstand’s contents are ignited by fire and fire represents justice and judgment.  Wood, hay, and stubble will be burned up and only that which is pure will remain.  Gold represents Divine Nature hence the golden lampstands were to carry the Divine Nature of The Gospel to the world.

Jesus speaks to John and us in Revelation chapter 1:

17  And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His Right Hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.

18 I am He Who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

19 Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this.

Jesus explains the chronological outline of The Book to John:

What you have seen

The things which are

The things which will take place

20 The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.

The seven churches were in the 2nd category of “the things which are”.  The state of these seven churches was described in the seven epistles of chapters 2 and 3.  They were the multifaceted states of churches representing both historically as well as the current state of churches today.  Time is no issue to Jesus in describing the seven churches.

They were identified by Jesus in verse 20 as seven golden lampstands.  However, the seven lamps of fire are now in the Throne Room, an indication that they have been removed from the earth.  The Restrainer (The Holy Spirit) has been removed which provided the “Oil” for the lampstand.  Now, the world is subject to its blindness as the counterfeit god attempts to replace The True and Authentic King of the earth, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

By the way, Isaiah describes the Seven Spirits in chapter 11:

1  There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.

2 The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him,

The Spirit of wisdom

The Spirit of understanding

The Spirit of counsel

The Spirit of might

The Spirit of knowledge

The Fear of the LORD.

24 Elders

Wednesday, September 27th, 2023

Who are the 24 elders in The Throne Room of Heaven?

The Beloved Disciple recorded by The Holy Spirit in Revelation 4:

4 Around the Throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads.

They are referenced elsewhere:  In Revelation 3:

5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.

21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My Throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His Throne.

In Revelation 5:

8  Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your Blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,

10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”

These 24 elders represent the overcomers who fully committed to Jesus Christ as they were led by The Holy Spirit on earth.  They are called both kings and priests which is beyond the Old Testament Law.  They worshipped Christ and not allowed themselves to worship idols of any type.  It is clear that they walked in THE FEAR OF THE LORD and were not moved by the world’s attempts to take them off course.

There are several references to their crowns:

In Revelation 2:

10 Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

In Revelation 3:

11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.

Also, James wrote by The Holy Spirit in James chapter 1:

12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of Life which the Lord has promised to those who Love Him.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Timothy chapter 4:

8 Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have Loved His appearing.

Make note, appearing is different than returning to earth.

Peter also wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Peter chapter 5:

4 and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.

Paul also wrote in 1st Corinthians chapter 9:

25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown (incorruptible).

And in 1st Thessalonians chapter 2:

19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming?

These different crowns represent:

Those who have suffered for His sake

Those who Loved His Appearing

Those who fed the flock

Those who press on steadfastly

Those who win souls

You can’t earn your salvation but you can earn your crowns!

The Throne On Earth

Tuesday, September 26th, 2023

The Throne of Our Lord Jesus Christ will reside here on earth as prophesied!

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in Luke chapter 1:

26  Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,

27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.

28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”

29 But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was.

30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.

31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.

32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and The Lord God will give Him the Throne of His ancestor David.

33  He will reign as King of Israel forever, and His reign will have no limit.”

At Christmas time, this passage is often quoted but not in context with Revelation chapter 4.  Gabriel prophesied of Jesus as the Alpha and Omega of the earthly Kingdom to come.  This is within His reality as the Alpha and Omega in the Spiritual realm since He was with FATHER before the foundation of physical matter was formed.

FYI: The throne of David did not exist during the earthly ministry of Jesus.

Jesus spoke to His Jewish disciples in Matthew chapter 19:

28 Jesus responded, “Listen to the Truth: In the age of the restoration of all things, when the Son of Man sits on His glorious Throne, you who have followed me will have twelve thrones of your own, and you will govern the twelve tribes of Israel.

Notice that the disciples were to govern the tribes of Israel, not other believers.  These are not the same thrones of the elders found in the Throne Room of Heaven.

In chapter 25 of Matthew, Jesus speaks of when He will judge all nations here on earth:

Matthew 25:

31  “When the Son of Man comes in His Glory, and all the Holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the Throne of His Glory.

There should be no doubt where this Throne is located and when Jesus will be seated on His own Throne.

32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then the King will say to those on His Right Hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food;

I was thirsty and you gave Me drink;

I was a stranger and you took Me in;

36 I was naked and you clothed Me;

I was sick and you visited Me;

I was in prison and you came to Me.’

These were the works separating the sheep from the goats.  Your contributions satisfy three of these: hunger, thirst, and nakedness.  There is a seventh work to be considered: ministering salvation.

37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’

40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.

41 “Then He will also say to those on the Left Hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;

43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

44 “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’

46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into Eternal Life.”

The goats are self-centered whereas the sheep are Christ-centered.  When judgment of our works comes, there will be no negotiation after the fact.  Everyone will experience THE FEAR OF THE LORD!

The Throne Room

Saturday, September 23rd, 2023

The Beloved Disciple describes The Throne Room in Heaven after faithfully recording the seven Epistles of Jesus to the churches in chapters 2 & 3 in The Book of Revelation!

John recorded by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 4:

After these things I looked, and behold, a Door standing open in Heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”

This verse is a separator to designate the future from the present of chapters 2 & 3.  Notice the emphatic phrase “must take place after this”.  What will be described in chapters 4 through 22 has clearly not yet occurred.  However, John is told of this irrevocable certainty.

2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a Throne set in Heaven, and One sat on the Throne.

We know there are more dimensions than our physical bodies can perceive.  The SPIRIT is not limited to time or space.

It is recorded by THE SPIRIT in Isaiah chapter 46:

8  “Remember this, and show yourselves men; Recall to mind, O you transgressors. 9 Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me,

10 Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,’

This Integrated Message System called The Bible is full of prophecies of The Messiah which have come to pass.  No man or man-created artificial intelligence could produce a comparable system!  I marvel how highly intelligent individuals are so blinded and unable to see and acknowledge the Truth of Scripture.  Clearly, their eyes are darkened, and ears are dull of hearing.

The word “Throne” appears 58 times in the New Testament and 14 times in the 4th chapter of Revelation.  Where is Jesus sitting in the Throne Room?

King David wrote by THE SPIRIT in Psalm 110:

1 The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My Right Hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”

Jesus confirmed this when He spoke in Revelation chapter 3:

19  As many as I Love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My Voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

21To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My Throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His Throne.

There are two distinct Thrones:  FATHER’S Throne and Jesus’ Throne.  You must be classified as an Overcomer to sit on such a Throne.  The adversary will attempt to establish his counterfeit throne on earth but will be short lived.  Jesus encourages us to overcome the lukewarmness found in the church today so that we can ultimately sit with Him on His Throne.  However, it will be by invitation only.

It is recorded by THE SPIRIT in Isaiah chapter 9:

6  For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His Name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of His Government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Does Heaven need to establish judgment and justice?  No, this Throne will be on earth and be permanent… there will be no end.  At the return of Jesus during His second coming, His enemies will become His footstool.

The Two Events Summary

Friday, September 22nd, 2023

The two events prophesied and detailed in the Revelation of Jesus Christ can be summarized into two categories: The harpazo (the catching away) and the second coming of Christ!

Jesus reiterated many times:

Matthew 11:15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!

In other Words: So listen and understand what I’m telling you. If you’re able to understand this, then you need to respond.

Jesus emphasized this command in chapters 2 & 3 of the Book of Revelation!  This is both a promise and a warning, depending on which path you take.

What response is Jesus expecting of us?  We are to focus on being fruitful for the Kingdom’s sake and not be attached to this world and its trappings.  We are to purify ourselves with The Word and be led by The Holy Spirit in all things.  As we mature, we will become more sensitive to The Holy Spirit and will be good ambassadors for Christ and properly represent Him in ours words and actions.

The two events can be compared in the following table:

Rapture (Harpazo)Second Coming
Translation of believersNo translation involved
Translated saints go to HeavenTranslated saints return to earth
Earth not judgedEarth judged
Imminent, any moment, without signsFollows definite, predicted signs
Not in the Old TestamentPredicted in the Old Testament
Believers onlyAffects all men on the earth
Before the day of wrathConcludes the day of wrath
No reference to satanSatan bound
Jesus comes for His ownJesus comes with His own
Jesus comes in the airJesus comes to the earth
Jesus claims His BrideHe comes with His Bride
Only His own see HimEvery eye shall see Him
Great Tribulation begins afterwardMillennium begins
True Church believers onlyOthers saved/raised later?

I suggest you closely ponder this comparison.  I have spent the last several days detailing the differentiation between the two events.  I believe that we have been given the mystery revealed and what to expect from this revelation.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 13:

10  And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?”

11 He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it has not been given.

12 For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.

In other Words, for everyone who listens with an open heart will receive progressively more revelation until he has more than enough. But those who don’t listen with an open, teachable heart, even the understanding that they think they have will be taken from them.

13 Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.

14 And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive;

15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.’

Is there anything worse than failing to see, recognize, and embrace Truth?

16 But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear;

17 for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.

As Paul would say, I rest my case concerning the two events!
