A voice said to me, Come up hither: THE IMMINENT CATCHING AWAY OF THE DEAD IN CHRIST AND LIVING SAINTS BY CHRIST  - Revelation 4:1 -5 [ 24 ]

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | January 31, 2020. Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional    Revelation 4:1 -5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Beloved, Chapter fifteen of the book of Revelation, has a close link with the previous chapter and also a close link with the next chapter.
It  reveals the certainty of God’s fierce judgement, coming upon those that worship the Antichrist and the devil, especially during the great tribulation.
In addition, it unravels the severity of  the full wrath of God upon those that receive the mark of the Antichrist.
But then the wrath of God is not limited to sinners during the great tribulation period,   but in all ages upon everyone and anyone who rejects the counsel of God. Incidentally, you are not excluded.
You recount what happened during the days of Noah, when the wrath of God, came upon the whole them world and only Noah and his household were saved.
The same goes for the time of Sodom and Gomorah and then, only Lot and his daughters were saved.
The wrath of God obtains in all ages and you need to be determined that , through wholehearted obedience, you shall escape God’s wrath in Jesus name.
See what the Bible says about the reality of the wrath of God in all ages and at all times.

Psa 2:11 — Psa 2:12  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, And ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Psalms 9:17  The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

Zep 1:14 — Zep 1:18  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. 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, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. 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. 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.

Faithful ministers of God from the outset of  the earth, usually warns the people in their ages to make effort to avoid the certain to happen gruesome wrath of God.
John the Baptist, warned his hearers in his days.

Mat 3:7 — Mat 3:10  But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, during His earthly ministry did same.

John 3:36  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

The disciples of our Lord, during the Bible days did so.

Rom 2:8 — Rom 2:9  But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

But  then, there shall be unprecedented  great wrath of God during the great tribulation.
You in particular should make effort to avoid it, by following the Lord , fully now.
God’s grace shall avail for you in Jesus name.

Revelation 15:1  And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.

Prior to this time, the inhabitants of the earth, during the great tribulation would have experienced this wrath of God.

Rev 6:15 — Rev 6:17  And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

But then during the final part of the great tribulation, the full  wrath of God shall be poured upon the unrepentant worldlings in a great dimension.  See how the scriptures describes it in chapter fifteen of the book of Revelation.

Rev 15:1 — Rev 15:8  And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.  And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.  And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

Beloved, the first thing you discover in all these verses, are  the seven angels, who are to execute the seven last plagues of the severity of God’s  long awaited righteous Judgement.

Rom 2:5 — Rom 2:6  But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

Revelation 15:1  And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.

Remember don’t ever forget. Angels are  ministers of mercy to believers, but at the same time, ministers of  judgement of God to sinners.
The Bible in chapter sixteen of the book of Revelation, give details of how the plagues of the seven angels shall be poured. See them.
The first  angel
Rev 16:1 — Rev 16:2 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. 

 
The second angel
 
Rev 16: 3

And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.  And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

 
The third angel
 

Rev 16:4 — Rev 16:6  And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

 
Forth angel
 

Rev 16:8 — Rev 16:9  And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

Fifth angel

Rev 16:10 — Rev 16:11  And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

Sixth angel.

Revelation 16:12  And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

Seventh angel.

Rev 16:17 — Rev 16:19  And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

You then see the close connection between the two chapters.
Fiery judgement, indignation and wrath comes upon all the unrepentant inhabitants of the earth.
Surprisingly, all of these things were prophesied prior to this time.

Isa 13:9 — Isa 13:13  Behold, the day of the Lord cometh,cruel both with wrath and fierce anger,to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. 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. 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. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.  Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts,and in the day of his fierce anger.

Jeremiah 10:10  But the Lord is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king:

at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

Rom 1:18 — Rom 1:19  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

The wrath of God shall come upon everyone and anyone in all ages , who holds the truth in unrighteousness.

Rom 2:3 — Rom 2:9  And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

Beloved, make conscientious efforts to avoid the certain to happen gruesome wrath of God, described below.

Rev 14:9 — Rev 14:11 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 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.

Even though the wrath of God affects rejecters of Christ today, but it shall get to the climax during the great tribulation.
 
For you to avoid this wrath, accept the salvation of Jesus wholeheartedly now. See what the Bible says.

Heb 2:1 — Heb 2:3  Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

Secondly in the chapter fifteen of the book of Revelation, you shall discover the  song of praise, victory  and worship of triumphant saints.
These  saints through their determined resolve to follow our Lord Jesus Christ, through thick and thin,   escape this fiery wrath, that is being poured upon the earth.
They took advantage of the precious blood of Jesus and were  redeemed. So they sang song of redemption and victory to the reigning Lamb of God.

Rev 15:2 — Rev 15:4  And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

These triumphant saints sang songs  to the glorious. Lamb. The King of Kings and Lord of lords.

Revelation 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.

Revelation 19:16  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Rev 7:9 — Rev 7:17  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; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?  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. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

They also sang the song of Moses.   Remember what happened when God subdued the Egyptians at  the Red Sea.

Exo 15:1 — Exo 15:19  Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.  The Lord is my strength and song,  and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.  The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone. Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power:  thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.  And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together,  the floods stood upright as an heap,  and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.  The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.  Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.  Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods?  Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? Thou stretchedst out thy right hand,  the earth swallowed them.  Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.  The people shall hear, and be afraid:  sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.  Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.  Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.  Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance,  in the place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established. The Lord shall reign for ever and ever. For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.

The songs of these triumphant saints admonish believers to fear God.

Revelation 15:4  Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

During the earthly ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, He taught His followers of all ages and that includes you in particular to fear God.

Luk 12:4 — Luk 12:5  And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

The blessed Holy Spirit did same through the disciples in Bible days.

2Th 1:6 — 2Th 1:12 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Beloved, these triumphant saints during the great tribulation had victory over sin.
  
 
Today’s believers which must include you too must have victory over sin.

1Jo 5:4 — 1Jo 5:5  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1Jo 2:13 — 1Jo 2:14  I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father. I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

You must resist the devil to overcome sin.

1Pe 5:8 — 1Pe 5:9  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

 In addition you take advantage of the precious blood of Jesus to overcome sin and satan.

Revelation 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Once you have experienced biblical salvation, your lifetime lifestyle is to overcome sin till Jesus comes. His grace shall avail for you in particular in Jesus name.
Lastly, you  will discover from the remaining verses of chapter fifteen, the source of the vials of wrath poured upon the unrepentant inhabitants of the earth, during the great tribulation.

Rev 15:5 — Rev 15:8  And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

The angels came out of the temple. This was not the first time, John saw something like this. He had seen it before.

Revelation 11:19  And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

The  seven angels that shall execute  the last  fiery judgement shall come from the presence of the Lord, from inside the temple.
The temple was filled with smoke.
What is the meaning of this?
This smoke signifies the glory of God.

Isa 6:1 — Isa 6:4   In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said,  Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

No one could enter the temple again, until the seven angels finished, pouring the vials of wrath of God upon the earth.
What is the meaning of this?
There is no intercession for mercy again. The judgement will come in full force till the end.  Until the final fury shall be poured upon them.

Psalms 75:8  For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.

Jer 25:15 — Jer 25:18  For thus saith the Lord God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them. Then took I the cup at the Lord’s hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the Lord had sent me: To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; as it is this day;

Beloved, the Bible reveals what can bring the wrath of God to anyone and everyone inside or outside the church.
Please sincerely examine yourself and be sure you are free from these things.  See them.

Eph 5:3 — Eph 5:6  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

In addition, see what can bring wrath of God to backsliders and those who engages in compromise and secret sin.

Heb 10:26 — Heb 10:31  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Beloved, what are you going to do to avoid the wrath of God and be part of the dawning rapture, to help you in particular to future among the twenty four elders, apostle John saw in the revelation Jesus showed him?
Repent now of anything you have discovered, as you sincerely examine yourself with the scriptures above.
Know assuredly that the grace of God can help you in particular to be purified from all iniquities and qualifies you for the imminent rapture?  See what the following scripture says and appropriate it.

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:15  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | January 30, 2020. Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional    Revelation 4:1 -5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Beloved, chapter fourteen of the book of Revelation is an overview of the proclamations of the  seven angles.
In  our previous study, we have discovered from the scriptures, the proclamations of the first four angels.
Now the blessed Holy Spirit is set to unravel the proclamations of the remaining three angels and the biblical interpretation. See the remaining three.

5.  The fifth angel announces the harvest of  God’s judgement on earth.

Rev 14:15 — Rev 14:16 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

Matthew16:27  For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

6. The sixth angel announces the great battle of Armageddon.

Revelation 14:17  And sixth angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

7. The  seventh angel back up what the sixth angel said.

Rev 14:18 — Rev 14:19 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

John 5:22.   For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

Beloved the remaining verses of chapter fourteen is a revelation of two gatherings that shall follow one another.

The first is the gathering of saints with Christ at the second coming.

You shall be there in Jesus name.

The second is the gathering of rebels.

Rebelling against God and the pouring of wrath  of judgement upon them. You shall not be part of it in Jesus name.

Matthew 13:30  Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

See all of these in the concluding verses.

Rev 14:14 — Rev 14:20  And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

The first thing you discover is a white cloud and a personality sitting on it. See it.

Revelation 14:14  And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

Who is this Son of man  and what does the cloud signify?
The person is no other person than   our Lord Jesus Christ.  The Son of man.

Revelation 1:13  And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle

Daniel 7:13  I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Matthew 24:30  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Luke 21:27  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

The cloud signifies His glory.

Revelation 1:7  Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Revelation 10:1.  And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

Psalms 97:2  Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

Isaiah 19:1  The burden of Egypt. Behold, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.

Matthew 24:30  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Matthew 26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Luke 21:27  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

This Son of man,  sitting on the cloud has a sickle in His hand . What is the meaning of this?

Revelation 14:14  And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

The sickle  is for harvesting.

Mark 4:29  But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.

When is our Lord going to do this harvest?

Rev 14:14 — Rev 14:16  And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

Mat 13:37 — Mat 13:38  He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

See this affirmed by other scriptures.

Joe 3:12 — Joe 3:14  Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.

Isaiah 63:1  Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.

The harvest time of our Lord, has to do with His second coming to the earth with His saints to reign with Him. You shall be there in Jesus name.

Rev 19:11 — Rev 19:16  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. 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. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 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. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Act 1:9 — Act 1:11  And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Beloved, you in particular must have your eyes on this period. You must do everything to be part of it.
See  what the scriptures says about the  second coming.

Zch 14:4 — Zch 14:5  And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.  And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

2Th 1:7 — 2Th 1:10  And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Jud 1:14 — Jud 1:15  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

As this chapter is being rounded up, you shall  discover the formidable resistance of satan  against Christ’s  second  coming to reign with His saints, but they shall all be slain.
This resistance is called the battle of Armageddon.
These are the proclamations of the sixth and seventh angels. See it.

Rev 14:17 — Rev 14:20  And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Isaiah 66:6  A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the Lord that rendereth recompence to his enemies.

Rev 17:13 — Rev 17:14  These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 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.

Rev 19:17 — Rev 19:21  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; 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. 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. 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. 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.

Beloved, there is a great lesson for you to learn in the overwhelming overthrow of these rebels.
Satan has never for once truncated God’s plan.
Then be rest assured that no matter the  satanic formidable resistance of God’s plan  against your life.  They shall fail abysmally in Jesus name.
Think of the resistance of Joseph’s  brothers.

Gen 37:18 — Gen 37:20  And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him. And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh. Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.

But then see this.

Gen 42:6 — Gen 42:9  And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold to all the people of the land: and Joseph’s brethren came, and bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth. And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himself strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food. And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him. And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and said unto them, Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.

Joseph overcame because he persevered.
Today , many believers are no more in the faith, because they can not preserve.
Why are you giving bribe to gain the world? It is because you can not preserve.
Why did you divorce your spouse to marry another? It is because you can not persevere.
Why are you compromising and committing secret sin? It is because you can not persevere.
Check the scriptures both in the old and new testaments, you will never see saints of God persevering that are overcome  by imperial powers or sinners.
Pharaoh failed against the children of Israel.
Nebuchadnezzar failed concerning the three Hebrews.
Herod failed concerning Peter.
Beloved, believe God. If you will persevere in this your present challenges. It shall turn to you for a testimony in Jesus name.

Luke 21:13  And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

As you continue to prepare for the dawning rapture. See the qualifications of those that shall come with Christ in His second coming .

Revelation 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.

1. Called:
2. Chosen:
3. Faithful
Called. Have you really responded to the call of God?

Isaiah 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Matthew 11:28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Have you really  heeded the call to biblical  salvation?  Not  just going to church.
Are you born again?
Are you a  new creature?

2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

2. Chosen:
Have you being chosen?

1 Peter 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Don’t be presumptuous. Have you being called out of darkness of secret sins,  compromise, worldliness, bribery and corruption,    daily adultery of living with a second spouse, when your first spouse is still alive?
Have you being chosen?
Only those who live by the entirety of God’s unfailing words are chosen by Christ. Don’t ever forget this.
Those who chose what to obey in the Bible and refuse others are not chosen by Christ. See it yourself.

Jn 6:60 — Jn 6:70  Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

3. Faithful:

1 Corinthians 4:2  Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

Luk 19:15 — Luk 19:19  And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

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

Beloved, if you really want to be part of the second coming of our Lord to the earth. Align yourself with the requisite. I pray you shall not be found wanting like foolish virgins in Jesus name.

Revelation 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.

This must be your lifestyle till our Lord comes.
When these are conscientiously done, your being part of the twenty four elders apostle John saw in the revelation our Lord showed him, shall be guaranteed.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Beloved, the fourteenth chapter of the book of Revelation continues with the proclamations  made by seven different angles.   See them.
1. The first angel proclaims the preaching of the everlasting gospel.

Rev 14:6 — Rev 14:7 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

2. The second angel announces  the fall of Babylon.

Revelation 14:8  And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

3. The third angel announces  the eternal torment of those who  worship the  Antichrist and receive his  mark.

Rev 14:9 — Rev 14:11  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 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.

4. The forth angel declares  the blessedness of tribulation saints who died in the Lord.

Revelation 14:13  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

5.  The fifth angel announces the harvest of  God’s judgement on earth.

Rev 14:15 — Rev 14:16 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

6. The sixth angel announces the great battle of Armageddon.

Revelation 14:17  And sixth angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

7. The  seventh angel back up what the sixth angel said.

Rev 14:18 — Rev 14:19 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

Beloved, this chapter reveals to you the commitment of holy angels doing the will of God wholeheartedly.  Holy angels do what God commands without exception.

Psalms 103:20  Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

True  believers of  all  ages that must include you, should be doing the will of God, just like the holy angels are doing. This  is one of the essential things  our Lord taught His followers, during His earthly ministry.

Mat 6:9 — Mat 6:10  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Saints are commanded to be doing the will of God and they should be  committed  to doing so. Don’t ever forget this all important criteria of saintliness.
This alone is the worthy virtue in their lives,  which qualifies them for eternal rewards.  See what the Bible says.

Revelation 14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

The saints that are redeemed with the precious blood of Jesus, who are  separated  to God, receive unusual blessedness  and eternal rest for unalloyed loyalty and commitment to doing the will of God at all times during their lifetime.

Revelation 14:13  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

See the details of all of these in the following verses of chapter fourteen of the book of Revelation.

Rev 14:6 — Rev 14:13  And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 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.  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

Remember at this time, we are in the middle of the great tribulation.
God our loving  Father in heaven, even at this time extended His providence to save humanity from eternal damnation ,commissioned an angel to preach the everlasting gospel of  unalterable, unchanging and infallible  scriptures, to the entirety of the inhabitants of the earth. See it yourself.

Rev 14:6 — Rev 14:7  And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

The angel of God is commissioned to preach the gospel,  during the great tribulation.
Pause here . Do you preach the gospel at all to erring sinners to rescue them from perishing?

Jud 1:22 — Jud 1:23  And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

At this time when the church is still available on earth, angels don’t preach the gospel.
But at that time the church would have gone, during the great tribulation, the angel will preach the gospel.
The gospel is everlasting, because it is unchangeable at  all  times and in every  seasons.
You will discover from the scriptures that angels preached  the gospel in the old testament. See some scriptures  that affirms this.

Heb 2:2 — Heb 2:3   For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

Galatians 3:19  Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

Act 7:37 — Act 7:39  This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear. This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us: To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,

Acts 7:53  Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.

Remember, when our Lord  was born angel proclaimed the gospel of the ministry and mission of our Lord Jesus Christ on earth.

Mat 1:20 — Mat 1:21  But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

This was also done at another time.

Luk 2:9 — Luk 2:14  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

This commissioned angel talks about the essence and the impact the gospel must have in the lives of the hearers. See it yourself.

Revelation 14:7  Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

The Bible says this is the conclusion of the gospel to all the hearers and that includes you.

Ecc 12:13 — Ecc 12:14  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Secondly another angle announces  the fall of Babylon.

Revelation 14:8  And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Many prophets, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and many others have prophesied the fall of Babylon in the old testament. Now the prophecy is coming to fulfilment.

Isa 21:6 — Isa 21:10  For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman,  let him declare what he seeth. And he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, and a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed: And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights: And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.  O my threshing, and the corn of my floor: that which I have heard of the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.

Revelation 14:8  And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

These angels are now preaching, because at this time, the church has been raptured.
However, believers are around now and have been mandated to preach the gospel.
Remember, there is a fearful and fearsome judgement, if you in particular fail to do so.

Ezk 3:17 — Ezk 3:19  Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

Jesus our Lord commissioned all the believers of all ages and you in particular, to preach the gospel.

Mar 16:15 — Mar 16:16 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

It is your responsibility to preach the gospel now. Every believer including you must preach the gospel.
But then according to the scriptures, if you fail to preach the gospel, you become a sinner.

James 4:17  Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

It becomes a sin for you if you failed to preach the gospel. To rescue the perishing, especially to those in your world of influence. Your unsaved spouse, children, parents, siblings, close and extended family members, neighbors and colleagues at the place of work.
You are now aware the rapture is dawning. In addition you know the consequences of missing the rapture.
How can you still be busy pursuing temporal ephemeral that you shall leave for Antichrist after the rapture, when all of these people are not saved.
Is that not wickedness and cruelty on your part,?
Will you be able to face Christ in heaven to explain why you are raptured and  your spouse and any of these people in your world of influence are going to partake in the gruesome great tribulation?
You are a wise person. Arise and be wise.

Deuteronomy 32:29  O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Beloved, chapter fourteen of the book of Revelation continues with the following revelations to apostle John.
He saw another angle  announces the  damnation of unrepentant sinners.

Rev 14:9 — Rev 14:11  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 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.

Don’t forget during the great tribulation,  the Antichrist and false prophet and satan shall compel the inhabitants of the earth to take the mark of the Antichrist.

Rev 13:11 — Rev 13:18  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Very very unfortunately, that everyone and anyone  who refuses Jesus’s gospel now,  will go through the same torment , those in the great tribulation shall go through.
Pause here and don’t be presumptuous. Are you presently refusing the totality of the gospel being preached to you?
Can you  imagine   yourself going through the catastrophes and calamities of the great tribulation? God forbid. Repent now.
Those who die without Christ and righteousness shall suffer the same Faith.
Is worldliness, compromise, secret sin , bribery and corruption, divorce and remarriage, make you in particular to experience the great tribulation? God forbid. Do the needful now.
Today might just be the remaining time you have left to do the needful. May the Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name. See the torment again,, as announced by the angel.

Rev 14:9 — Rev 14:10  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Please  always  remember, suffering the wrath of God awaits those who reject the gospel today.
THE WRATH OF GOD

Romans 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Rom 1:28 — Rom 1:32  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Rom 2:8 — Rom 2:9  But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

Judgement for backsliders.

Heb 10:26 — Heb 10: 31  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

It is very surprising that today many people which must exclude you, hear about the message of hell , yet they despised it  See what our Lord and savior said about hell.

Mar 9:43 — Mar 9:48 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Matthew 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:.

Hell fire  prepared for the devil and his cohorts shall be the lots of those who refused the gospel. Don’t ever forget. If you ever refuse and reject the gospel, the consequences are frightening.

Revelation 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

The so called believers and perhaps nominal churchgoers globally who does not have integrity.
Whose yes are not yes, who engages in all forms of lies shall be doomed. If you don’t want to be and you shall not be. Then don’t be a liar.  See what the Bible says about lying.

Jeremiah 9:5  And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.

Ezk 13:7 — Ezk 13:8  Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The Lord saith it; albeit I have not spoken? Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God.

Ezekiel 13:22  Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:

Liars inside the church or outside the church shall go to the lake of fire. Always remember this.

Revelation 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Lastly, one of the angels announces what should delight  believers of all ages and you in particular. Those who live uncompromising lifestyle.
This must be an impetus for you to strive and be part of the dawning rapture. It shall be so in Jesus name.

Rev 14:12 — Rev 14:13  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

See the striking character or virtues in their lives.
Patience and  perseverance.
See what the Bible says about this.

Luke 21:19  In your patience possess ye your souls.

Heb 10:35 — Heb 10:39 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

This announcement shall be the lots of  those who obey the gospel despite the consequences of doing so .

Revelation 14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Revelation 12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

See the lots of those who persevere in the great tribulation to obey the gospel.
It also shall be the lots of those who persevere today, despite challenges confronting them. You know am talking about you

Rev 7:14 — Rev 7:17  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. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Eternal rewards for being saved and abiding in Christ till the end .

Heb 6:10 — Heb 6:11  For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:

As you await the trumpet sound, be committed to doing the following:
Be  biblically  saved
Be sanctifiied and live in holiness and righteousness.
Become a soul winner , bringing people in your world of influence to the Lord.
Then and only then, you shall qualify to be among the raptured church, depicted as twenty four elders, apostle John saw around the throne.  I can see you there. I shall see you there.  When you get there look for me. By the grace of God I shall be there. This is because I live by the entirety of the revelations of the scriptures.
God’s grace is sufficient and available for all of us. Only if we believe. Remember the buck stops with you. Be diligent to ensure your precious undying soul does not perish.
It shall not be in Jesus name.

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:13  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.  And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Beloved,  chapter fourteen of the book of Revelation, exposes you to a group of people to emulate, even though, they went through the great tribulation too.
This chapter is a total departure from all that were  seen in chapter thirteen.
As you contrast the two chapters.
The previous reveals the activities of  satan,  Antichrist, false prophet, the deceptive lamb,  and unrepentant hardened inhabitants of the earth.
While this chapter reveals God  Christ,, the true Lamb of God.and triumphant obedient saints.
They lived a lifestyle of righteousness, and then, offered  true and glorious  worship to the Lord.
In addition, even though,  these group of people were part of the great tribulation, yet they lived triumphant lifestyle.
It then follows that if this could happen to them, during the great tribulation, believers today and you in particular, have no excuse, why you can not live triumphant lifestyle.
If these people can be righteous during the great tribulation. Then you  don’t have excuse why you can not be righteous today.
They were sealed and enjoy uncommon protection from the Lord..
Today, there is no reason to be afraid, because uncommon protection are available for the saints of God and you in particular.
These redeemed people lived like  Enoch, walking with God, when the whole world were living in wantom disobedience.

Genesis 5:24  And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

They lived like Noah , found to be righteous by God in a complete corrupt society.

Genesis 7:1  And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

These redeemed people lived like Daniel found to be faithful among the perverted
Babylonians.

Daniel 6:4  Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.

Beloved while the majority of the inhabitants of the earth during the great tribulation are sinful  these people are righteous like Lily  in the mud.
No wonder, you are called to emulate their exemplary lifestyle. See it.

Rev 14:1 — Rev 14:5  And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Beloved, you discover from the verses above, separated sealed people with the Redeemer.

Revelation 14:1  And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.

Our Lord is seen here as the true Lamb of God, standing with full authority.
The scriptures revealed our Lord severally as the gracious glorious Lamb of God. See some of them.

Rev 5:6 — Rev 5:10  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Rev 7:9 — Rev 7:14  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; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 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.

Revelation 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Rev 15:3 — Rev 15:4  And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

Revelation 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.

Our Lord is the slain, resurrected Lamb whose blood redeemed the entire saints of God.

1Pe 1:18 — 1Pe 1:19  Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

John 1:29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

Now these group of people during the great tribulation are separated and sealed with the
Lamb of God.

Revelation 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.

This is a revelation of their future glory when our Lord, the Lamb shall literally stand upon Mount Zion towards the end of the great tribulation.
Numerous scriptures affirmed this, because Mount Zion shall ultimately be the sit of authority.

Psa 2:6 — Psa 2:7  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Psalms 9:11  Sing praises to the Lord, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.

Psa 48:1 — Psa 48:2  Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

Psa 76:1 — Psa 76:2.  In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel. In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

Psa 99:1 — Psa 99:3  The Lord reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved. The Lord is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people. Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.

Our Lord shall literally stand on Mount Zion before the end of the great tribulation, when the Jews shall be mourning and desiring their  rejected Messiah.

Joe 3:15 — Joe 3:17  The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. The Lord also shall roar out of Zion,and utter his voice from Jerusalem;and the heavens and the earth shall shake:but the Lord will be the hope of his people,and the strength of the children of Israel.  So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy,and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

Romans 11:26  And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Zechariah 12:10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Beloved, these sealed people are revealed as the first fruits.

Revelation 14:4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

Romans 11:16  For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

Romans 11:27  For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

They were sealed and set apart prior to this time.

Rev 7:2 — Rev 7:9 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.  Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand.Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand.Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand.Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand.Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand.Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.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;

These redeemed people are seen singing a special song  of praise, that no other person can sing apart from them alone.

Rev 14:2 — Rev 14:3 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

Like these redeemed people, other scriptures reveals the song of saints to God and the Lamb.

Rev 5:8 — Rev 5:10  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Rev 15:2 — Rev 15:3 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

Beloved, I pray you shall be part of the raptured saints, because you shall sing different songs of praise at eternity. It shall be so in Jesus name.

Psalms 32:7  Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

Psa 33:1 — Psa 33:14  Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. Praise the Lord with harp:sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the Lord:let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spake, and it was done;  he commanded, and it stood fast.  The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever,the thoughts of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.  The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.  From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.

Psa 40:1 — Psa 40:3  I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.  And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

Isa 35:8 — Isa 35:10  And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Isaiah 51:11  Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head:  they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

Lastly you discover virtues you should emulate  now, from the exemplary lifestyle of these redeemed people to help you to be part of the dawning rapture.
It shall be so in Jesus name. See them yourself.

Rev 14:4 — Rev 14:5  These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

1. Not defiled with women.
See what defiles a person that must be purged out  of your life now.

Mar 7:14 — Mar 7:23  And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand: There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable. And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him; Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats? And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

This becomes necessary because no defile person shall enter heaven.

Revelation 21:27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

2. They are spiritual virgins.

2 Corinthians 11:2  For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

3. They are true disciples who faithfully followed the Lord at all times and in all places. They followed His example and willingly followed Him through thick and thin.

Revelation 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.

John 8:31  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

4.  They are redeemed with the precious blood of Jesus.

1Pe 1:14 — 1Pe 1:18  As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

5, They are first fruits.

Romans 11:16  For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

6.  No guile in their mouth.

1 Peter 3:10  For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

Remember,  all liars have no place in heaven.

Revelation 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Psalms 101:7  He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

Beloved, the Bible assures you of the willingness of the Lord to keep even you from falling, like these redeemed people.

Jud 1:24 — Jud 1:25  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, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Emulating  now, and living the exemplary lifestyle discovered in the lives of these redeemed people during the great tribulation, shall help you in particular to partake in the dawning rapture.
In addition, this shall help you avert the sure to happen calamities, those that shall miss the imminent rapture shall go through, during the great tribulation.
See the promise of our Lord to you in particular.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

And then as you avert the great tribulation by the special grace of God, you shall be part of the twenty four elders apostle John saw in the revelations, Jesus showed him. It shall be so for you in particular in Jesus name.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Beloved, the concluding part of fearsome truths in chapter thirteen of the book of Revelation, demand your utmost attention. See the verses and the information therein.

Rev 13:11 — Rev 13:18  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

In the previous study, you discover the first beast from the sea, referred to as the Antichrist.

Revelation 13:1  And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Now in the concluding part of the book, another beast is introduced, referred to as  false  prophet.

Revelation 13:11  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

These two beasts shall be the key players during the second half of the great tribulation, working with and empowered by the devil, to perpetrate the cruelty against the inhabitants of the earth.
Thank God you shall not be there in Jesus name.

Rev 16:13 — Rev 16:14  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Ultimately, these two beasts or these two satanic beings shall be thrown in to the lake of fire with the devil himself.

Revelation 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.

Revelation 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.

Beloved, there is a very striking facts about the devil and these two human beings, referred to as the Antichrist and the false prophet.
1. The devil is against God. He is  all out doing everything to undermine  God .

Rev 12:3 — Rev 12:4  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Revelation 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

2. The Antichrist is Against Christ.. He is the Son of the perdition, doing everything to undermine our Lord.

2Th 2:3 — 2Th 2:4  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; 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, shewing himself that he is God.

3.  The false prophet is working contrary to and against  the blessed Holy Spirit. The blessed Holy Spirit  directs believers to Christ and leads them to the truth. He directs  praise to Jesus. The false prophet directs the people to the Antichrist, deceiving them .. Direct praise to the Antichrist.

Rev 13:11 — Rev 13:15  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

It is important you reckon with the facts unravel about the personality of the false prophet, to help you not to fall a victim of his tactical , now that we are in the perilous time. See all of these in details.

Rev 13:11 — Rev 13:15  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Grasping these facts about the false prophet becomes necessary because, he  would have been perpetrating his deception,  even when the church is around.  See what our Lord said.

Matthew 7:15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

He would be a great deceiver with enormous reputation.

Revelation 13:11  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

He will look like a lamb with the nature of a wolf , having the nature and  wickedness of the devil. The false prophets on the outside  they look like lamb. But in the inside  they  have nature of the devil.

2Co 11:13 — 2Co 11:15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Act 20:29 — Act 20:30  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Beloved, it is very important not to be carried away with miracles. This is because the false prophets shall deceive multitude  of people with false miracles and lying wonders.

Rev 16:13 — Rev 16:14  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

See what Jesus said about them.

Mat 24:21 — Mat 24:26  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

 The blessed Holy Spirit warns believers too.

1 John 2:18  Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

1 John 4:1  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Thessalonians 2:9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

You must determinedly avoid wonders and miracles that are geared to  deceive people.  Miracles that is void of biblical repentance, righteousness, holiness, Restitution and redemption.
Please beware of these false prophets. They shall be doomed and damned at the end of time.
Beloved, if you are sincere and do not want to fall a victim of the false Prophets, it very easy to differentiate between real and false prophets. See this.

Revelation 13:11  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Now the false prophet even though revealed as a lamb has  two horns.
But then look at our Lord, the real Lamb. He has seven horns. This is the number for perfection, totality and completeness. He has all knowledge.

Revelation 5:6  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth

Seeing these differences, those that shall follow them now or during the great tribulation, shall share in there damnable end. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Rev 14:9 — Rev 14:11And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 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.

See the consequences of following the false prophet because of miracles and lying wonders, now or during the great tribulation.
Delusion.

Jer 23:15 — Jer 23:20 Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord. They say still unto them that despise me, The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. For who hath stood in the counsel of the Lord, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it? Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.

Dis-like  the truth

2Ti 4:3 — 2Ti 4:4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Depart from the faith.

1Ti 4:1 — 1Ti 4:2  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Fearful Judgement of God

Jer 23:25 — Jer 23:27  I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.

Jeremiah 23:30  Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.

Death and destruction.

1 Thessalonians 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.

Damnation

2 Thessalonians 2:12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2Pe 2:1 — 2Pe 2:3  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

The major assignment of the false prophets now or during the great tribulation is deception.

Rev 13:13 — Rev 13:15  And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

These false prophets most times  thrive and do miracles through satanic powers.

Rev 16:13 — Rev 16:14  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

The end of the false prophets and their followers are eternal damnation.

Revelation 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.

Revelation 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.

Beloved, if you turn it around. Jesus, the apostles and today’s true gospel ministers  advanced the kingdom through miracles.
In fact our Lord said, without miracles, people will not believe

John 4:48  Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.

The purpose of the miracles of the false prophets is  to deceive people and lead them to damnation. It brings them indescribable harm than good. See them.
1. Harden the hearts of the receivers

Exo 7:10 — Exo 7:13  And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the Lord had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. And he hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said

2. Make them to hate the truth of God’s unfailing and unchanging words.

2Th 2:9 — 2Th 2:12  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousnes

Close their hearts  and hinder them from  receiving  biblical repentance and redemption.

Rev 9:20 — Rev 9:21  And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Ultimately increase the sufferings of the receivers of such false miracles.

Jer 28:12 — Jer 28:15  Then the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah the prophet, after that Hananiah the prophet had broken the yoke from off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, saying, Go and tell Hananiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord; Thou hast broken the yokes of wood; but thou shalt make for them yokes of iron. For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.

Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The Lord hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie.
The  receivers of false miracles are  seduced  and  they  honour the false prophets and rejects the Savior.

Mar 13:22 — Mar 13:23  For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

False miracles hold the souls of receivers and make them hell bound.

Rev 13:13 — Rev 13:15 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Rev 14:9 — Rev 14:11  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 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.

The inhabitants of the earth during the great tribulation are encouraged to take the mark of the Antichrist.
Unfortunately, once  this is done, there case is no longer redeemable. See it yourself

Rev 13:16 — Rev 13:18  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Those that shall refuse the mark shall be regarded as traitors. They shall kill them or  they shall starve to death
On the other hand, taking the mark brings irredeemable damnation.

Rev 14:9 — Rev 14:11 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 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.

Beloved, pause here. Remember the buck stops with you. Be sincere about this.
You are a wise person in deed. Validate your being wise by placing the right premium on your precious undying soul. See what a wise person like you will do.

Hosea 14:9  Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

Deuteronomy 32:29  O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Is your present shepherd a true or  false prophet?
Are you going up and down looking for miracles without checking the source of the miracles?

Proverbs 22:3  A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.

Are you determined to endure challenges and don’t give in to false miracles, that can merchandise your precious undying soul?

Mat 24:12 — Mat 24:13  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Make sure you are biblically saved and sanctified. Living a consistent lifestyle of biblical holiness and righteousness.
All of these shall guarantee your readiness for the dawning rapture and making you in particular to be among the twenty four elders apostle John saw in the revelations  our Lord Jesus Christ showed him. It shall be so in Jesus name.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5   After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Beloved,  the blessed Holy Spirit here in chapter thirteen of the book of Revelation,  reveals to the believers of all ages and you in particular, fearful certain to happen truths, that should energise you to  do now, everything that shall guarantees , your readiness to partake in the dawning rapture.
See an overview of this chapter and ponder conscientiously on the happenings during the great tribulation.
1. The cruel  Antichrist

Rev 13:1 — Rev 13:2  And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

2. The wrath-full  Dragon

Revelation 13:4  And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

3. The second half of the three and half years of the  Period of the  great tribulation and cruelty of Antichrist against Israeli and the inhabitants of the  whole earth.

Rev 13:5 — Rev 13:7  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 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.

4. False prophet energising the Antichrist.

Rev 13:11 — Rev 13:12  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

5. The mark of the beast. The mark of eternal doom.

Rev 13:16 — Rev 13:17  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

6. Wisdom that guarantees deliverance from eternal damnation. Wisdom to energise you to prepare as a wise virgin and be part of the dawning rapture.

Revelation 13:18  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

7, The capturing of the major or key players during the great tribulation.

Rev 16:13 — Rev 16:14  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Beloved, the first ten verses captures the fearful happenings during the second half of the three and half years of the great tribulation.

Rev 13:1 — Rev 13:10  And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 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. 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.

If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
The   first revelatio is the beast rising up out of the sea.
What does it mean?
1.  It is the description of a cruel satan energised and empowered being .
 2. Afflicting wicked and unrepentant worldlings.
See it.
1. The cruel Antichrist.

Rev 13:1 — Rev 13:2  And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Dan 7:21 — Dan 7:25 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

2. The wicked and unrepentant worldlings and inhabitants of the earth.

Isaiah 57:20  But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

Revelation 12:12  Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Rev 9:20  And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

Rev 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

Rev 16:11  And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

Beloved, praise the Lord you shall not witness this sad and painful sufferings of the inhabitants of the earth at this time.
In deed it is a sad commentary.
This same beast was a fulfilment of the vision of Daniel, when he saw what his people, the nation of Israel shall suffer in the hand of the Antichrist, during the great tribulation. See it yourself.

Dan 7:3 — Dan 7:7  And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. 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.

This affirm  to  you in particular to give attention to the entirety of the unfailing words of God in the Bible.

Isaiah 34:16  Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

Psalms 119:89  For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.

Matthew 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Beloved, one more thing shall make the Antichrist cruel. It is his deadly wound see it.

Revelation 13:3  And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

What does this mean ? See it

Ezekiel 30:24  And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh’s arms, and he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded man.

2Th 2:5 — 2Th 2:9  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Rev 13:9 — Rev 13:10  If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

The Antichrist himself shall be visited with severe pains and Judgement from the Lord. So he inturn shall pour his venom of retarlation on the unrepentant inhabitants of the earth, especially the nation of Israel.  See this again.

Dan 7:21 — Dan 7:22  I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

In addition  you discover the insatiable ambition of satan revealed in the following verse. See it.

Revelation 13:4  And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

One of the things that drove Lucifer to pursue  dethroning  the almighty God, before he was driven out of heaven was his  passion for worship. He also wants to be addressed like God. Who is like the beast?

Exodus 15:11  Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods?  Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

Now that passion is being satisfied now, as the unrepentant inhabitants of the earth, are worshipping him, during the great tribulation.
He will also enjoy this worship through the Antichrist, who shall sit in the  temple of the Jews demanding worship.

2Th 2:3 — 2Th 2:4  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; 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, shewing himself that he is God.

Revelation 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.

Beloved, remember his request from our Lord, during His earthly ministry, worship.

Luk 4:5 — Luk 4:8  And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

It then  mean you should  follow  the good example of our Lord. Never bow to worship the devil to gain anything and everything. No matter what benefits you can gain from it.

Matthew 16:26  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Follow the good example of our Lord.

1 Peter 2:21  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

Now one other thing that made the devil to empower the breast ,to perpetrate cruelty, was his wrath for being driven out of heave.

Revelation 12:12  Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

This informs why you are being persecuted by him and his cohorts, now.  But then, don’t be moved, knowing fully that, it is your light afflictions.

Acts 20:24  But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

1 Corinthians 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

2Co 4:16 — 2Co 5:2  For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

Remember, our Lord told you to expect it as you faithfully follow Him.

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.

The blessed Holy Spirit says, you should not be suprised but rejoice.

1Pe 4:12 — 1Pe 4:13  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

This becomes necessary because of the glory awaiting you in particular in heaven

Rom 8:16 — Rom 8:18 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

James 1:12  Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

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

Are you presently going through persecution now? You should not be suprised. It is your seal of approval 

Philippians 1:29  For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

2Ti 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

You must not deny the Lord, but be like Him. This is because without the cross, there is no crown.

2Ti 2:11 — 2Ti 2:13  It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Hebrews 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.

Always remember, the wrath of satan should not separate you from Jess.

Rom 8:35 — Rom 8:39  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Certainly, it is the devil that shall empower the Antichrist to perpetrate cruelty to the inhabitants of the earth.

Revelation 13:4  And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

2Th 2:5 — 2Th 2:9  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Beloved, the  second half of the three and half years of the  Period of the  great tribulation , shall witness, the  perpetration of  cruelty of Antichrist against Israeli and the inhabitants of the  whole earth. See it.

Rev 13:5 — Rev 13:7  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 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.

The first thing the Antichrist shall engage in doing is speaking blasphemy against the God of heaven.  This was prophesied by Daniel.

Dan 7:2 — Dan 7:3  Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another

Dan 7:7 — Dan 7:8  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. 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.

While blasphemy against God, he shall  then persecute Israel and then , the inhabitants of the earth.

Dan 7:23 — Dan 7:25  Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Revelation 11:7  And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

  But then, the Bible reveals the singular thing that empowers the Antichrist to do these ills.
  The affected people do not have their names in the book of Life. See it.

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.

Revelation 17:8  The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Pause here. Please don’t be presumptuous.
Is your name in the book of life?  The consequences of not having it there are fearsome.

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

Don’t rejoice in anything and everything you are presently doing for the Lord or your assembly, if your name is not in the book of life.

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.

 
Pause here. Have you allowed sin,  compromise, giving bribe or receiving bribe, divorcing your lawful spouse , immorality or worldliness , to take away your name from the book of life?

Exodus 32:33  And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

Beloved if you must be part of the dawning rapture and you shall be part in Jesus name.
You must overcome sin, self, flesh, worldliness to keep your name in the book of life and be rewarded in heaven.

Revelation 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.

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.
Beloved, be very watchful in your lifestyle. Don’t be retaliatory. Forgive people. Don’t keep malice. These are the things that Shall hinder the unwise nominal churchgoers globally from Partaking in the dawning rapture. See it.

Rev 13:9 — Rev 13:10  If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Do you remember, our Lord’s, warning to Peter in the garden of Gethsemane?

Mat 26:51 — Mat 26:52  And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear. Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

See the several exhortations of the blessed Holy Spirit on the same issue.

Romans 12:14  Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

Rom 12:17 — Rom 12:21 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Eph 4:30 — Eph 4:32 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

1 Thessalonians 5:15  See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

1Jo 3:15  Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

1Jo 4:20  If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

See the lifestyle of our Lord, during His earthly ministry and follow His exemplary lifestyle in handling offences.

Luke 23:34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

1Pe 2:21 — 1Pe 2:23  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

 The blessed Holy Spirit says you in particular should manifest saintly lifestyle in handling offences. The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Rev 13:9 — Rev 13:10  If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Beloved, praise the Lord for unraveling certain to happen gruesome events that can begin today, if the rapture takes place now.
I rejoice with you because you are a very wise person.  Because of this pursue a worthwhile vision.
Be driving to pursue the revelation apostle John saw about the twenty four elders in heaven.
Remember, it is only what you pursue that you possess.
The good Lord has willed that you shall be part of these saints. SO PURSUE IT AND POSSESS IT. THIS IS BECAUSE ITI IS YOURS.  See it yourself.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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

Beloved, as you have discovered the importance of the needful truths that chapter twelve of the book of Revelation, reveals. It opens your understanding of what happened in dateless past, when Lucifer attempted to dethrone the almighty God, but failed and was driven out of heaven with the deceived one third of the angels of God, that joined forces with him in the plot.
In addition it reveals the determined resolve of the  devil to persecute the nation of Israel and the entire wholewide world, during the great tribulation that shall precede the imminent rapture that you must be part. It shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.
The following verses unravel the indescribable calamities Israel as a nation shall suffer  during the second half of the three and half years of the great tribulation, when the Antichrist would have broken the false peace pact , he had with them.

Daniel 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 one week symbolises seven years.
Now see these verses that unravel the indescribable sufferings of Israel in particular.

Rev 12:13 — Rev 12:17  And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

But then the good news is that at this time, the church would have been raptured.
You in particular would have been raptured.
Then God will save some of them. This is because of the covenant He had with them.

Rom 11:25 — Rom 11:27  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

Zch 13:8 — Zch 13:9 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.

Beloved in the previous studies, you have discovered this woman is the nation of Israel.

Revelation 12:1.  And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

The child she brought forth is Christ our Lord, during His incarnation. That is the birth of Christ.
He was caught up to heaven, after His death and resurrection. This means the ascension of Christ, back to heaven.

Revelation 12:5  And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

Mark 16:19  So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

The chapter further reveals the remnants that shall be saved, protected and preserved, during the remaining three and half years of the great tribulation.

Revelation 12:6  And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

During the second part of the three and half years, the remnants that shall seek the Lord, that is the Messiah that was initially rejected shall be preserved and protected.
It is a confirmation of the vision shown to Moses. The bush burning, but not consumed. The people severly persecuted but not totally destroyed.

Revelation 12:14  And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

Exodus 3:2  And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

This happen to them because of the covenant God made with them as nation. See them basking in the reliability of this covenant.

Psa 124:1 — Psa 124:8 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;  If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:  Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us: Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.  Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.  Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

See this same preservation and protection of Israel  was prophesized by our Lord.

Mar 13:19 — Mar 13:20 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

Beloved, the devil has unique reasons why he determinedly persecute Israel as a nation.
See it yourself.

Revelation 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

Revelation 12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The major reason is because it is the nation of Israel that produced the Savior of the world.

Genesis 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

But then the great tribulation shall not be limited to Israel alone but the whole wide world.

Rev 12:9 — Rev 12:10 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

The devil is after the inhabitants of the whole world.  This includes the believers of all ages and that includes you.

Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

But then, while he and his cohorts are doing this, the good Lord shall protect the elect and you are included.

Heb 13:5 — Heb 13:6  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

You remember the prayer of our Lord Jesus Christ for His followers of all ages especially you, before He went to the cross.

John 17:11  And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

John 17:15  I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

Now see in details the persecution of the nation of Israel.

Revelation 12:13  And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

Revelation 12:15  And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

The flood in this verse symbolises the innumerable numbers of the armies of Antichrist that shall be deployed to destroy the people.

Revelation 12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

As  the people of Israel are being severely persecuted, some remnants shall begin to seek for the rejected Messiah sincerely and they shall be saved.
Remember Israel as a nation is severely persecuted, because Christ our Lord came from the nation.

Genesis 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

See divers prophecies about these persecutions, during the second half of the great tribulation.

Dan 7:21 — Dan 7:22  I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

Israel was referred to as saints, because by this time, the church has been raptured. However, they shall begin to turn to the Lord.

Dan 7:23 — Dan 7:25 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Dan 11:40 — Dan 11:45  And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

But then at this time, the great tribulation shall not be limited to Israel alone but the whole world.

Daniel 12:7  And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

Amo 5:18 — Amo 5:20  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.  As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

This severe and intense  sufferings shall compel  them, to begin to seek the rejected Messiah. See the prophecy of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Mat 24:15 — Mat 24:25 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:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.

The Antichrist shall do this cruel acts against Israel for three and half years and even blaspheme God.

Revelation 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

Beloved, if Israel shall seek for the Messiah, during this intense persecution.
What excuse does some nominal churchgoers today, compromising because of inconsequential challenges of this present time ?
Pause a little here. Are you compromising because of the seemingly insignificant or incomparable challenges of today against the period of great tribulation?
I am persuaded you are not. But if you are, repent now. See what the Bible says about the challenges now , compared with the time of great  tribulation.

Jeremiah 12:5  If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?

Endeavor to be part of the imminent rapture, which is the resurrection morning, prophesied in the passage below.

Isa 21:11 — Isa 21:12 The burden of Dumah.He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?  The watchman said,The morning cometh, and also the night: if ye will enquire, enquire ye: return, come.

See the timely warning from our Lord.

Luk 21:34 — Luk 21:36 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Beloved, the good news is that the great tribulation shall fulfill one of its purposes. Some people of Israel shall be saved.

Revelation 12:14  And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

This period here is the three and  half years of the great tribulation.
The wing of great eagle is the support, protection and preservation God will give them as He did, when He delivered them in Egypt. See it.

Exodus 19:4  Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.

Deu 32:11 — Deu 32:14  As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:  So the Lord alone did lead him,and there was no strange god with him. He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock; Butter of kine, and milk of sheep,with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.

God will  surely  help them as He did when he brought them out of Egypt. Sincere seekers of the rejected Messiah shall escape .

Zch 13:8 — Zch 13:9 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.

He will give them unusual protection from the hands of the Antichrist.

Psalms 91:4  He shall cover thee with his feathers,and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Satan will make  effort to destroy them all  but will fail.

Revelation 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Revelation 12:16  And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

God will protect the remnants that believe, as seen in the passage above. The earth opened her mouth to swallow the flood.
Remember the flood are the innumerable numbers of armies of the Antichrist deployed to destroy them.
The land opening is a repeat of what God did against Korah and his team, when they opposed Moses in  the wilderness.
The land will open and swallow the armies of the Antichrist.
See it.

Num 16:31 — Num 16:33 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them: And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

While God shall protect Israel because of His covenant. The gentiles even though shall be saved but with indescribable sufferings.

Isa 16:1 — Isa 16:5  Send ye the lamb to the ruler of the land from Sela to the wilderness, unto the mount of the daughter of Zion. For it shall be, that, as a wandering bird cast out of the nest, so the daughters of Moab shall be at the fords of Arnon. Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; bewray not him that wandereth.  Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth,the oppressors are consumed out of the land. And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.

Beloved, don’t forget, believers of all ages and you in particular are not appointed for wrath of the great tribulation.

1 Thessalonians 5:9  For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

So do the needful to be saved and escape the imminent great tribulation as Lot was told to escape the destruction of Sodom and Gomorah.

Hebrews 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

Genesis 19:17  And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

Beloved  escape now to avoid the fire of great tribulation.

Psalms 55:8  I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.

See what you must do to escape.
1. Biblical salvation.
2. Total separation from the world and worldly practices or worldliness.
3. Prayer and supplication. Watch and pray.
4. Holiness of life and sanctification.

Hebrews 12:14  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

5. Endure present challenges and persecutions.

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

6. Be steadfast and persevere to the end.
7.  Service. Reach out  to the lost to help them escape too. So serve the Lord.

Mal 3:16 — Mal 3:18 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him  for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.  And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Beloved let us compare the protection God shall give to Israel as a nation, during the great tribulation and protection for today’s  believers of all ages and you in particular, the Israeli of God.

Gal 6:15 — Gal 6:16  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

See it.

Rev 12:15 — Rev 12:17 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Isa 59:19 — Isa 59:21 So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. And the Redeemer shall come to Zion,and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.

As  some remnants  of the people of Israel shall turn to the Lord and s be saved. God will protect them.
The sincere  believers of today enjoys uncommon protection from God.

Psalms 32:7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

God will protect and preserve  His people today. See innumerable unfailing  promises of God.

Psa 27:4 — Psa 27:6  One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; And  now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore  will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.

Proverbs 18:10  The name of the Lord is a strong tower:the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

Isaiah 43:2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

Heb 13:5 — Heb 13:6 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Beloved , because you are secured today through uncommon and unusual protection from the Lord. What must you do to sustain it, until Christ comes?
Surrender all to the Lord
Stay close to the Lord.
Seek the Lord in prayers
Speak for the Lord. Invite them to come to Jesus.
Serve Jesus with love.
Save the lost
Stand for the Lord.
Beloved as you determinedly do all of these, your place among the twenty four elders apostle John saw in the revelations our Lord showed him, shall be guaranteed and secure in Jesus name.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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

Beloved, the revelations of the events in chapter twelve of the book of Revelation are in exhaustive.
Remember it reveals events in the time past, about the fall of Lucifer and one third of the angels of God.
It also captures the certain happenings during the great tribulation as it affects the nation of Israel in particular.
But then let’s look at the fall of Lucifer and how it affects you in particular.
And then  other faithful children of God and the world at large until the end of the great tribulation, when he and his cohorts shall be cast into the lake of fire, according to the unfailing word of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 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:

Revelation 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.

Beloved, these details are captured in the following verses of chapter twelve.
It contains the facts  about the defeat of satan in heaven in the time past and how you too can plug into what happened then, to affirm your own lifetime victory over him. It shall be so in Jesus name.

Rev 12:7 — Rev 12:12  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Beloved the above verses confirmed the war in heaven in the time past.

Revelation 12:7  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

In addition, it reveals the wrath of the devil on the earth, within the short time he has since then , till the end of the great tribulation, when  he shall be thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 12:12  Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Beloved, it was an established fact that satan attempted to dethrone the almighty God, but he failed woefully.

Rev 12:7 — Rev 12:8  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

In his plot to dethrone God, he used his position as an arc angel to deceive one third of the angels of God. At his defeat, he and those deceived angels were casted to the earth.

Revelation 12:4  And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Beloved satan is still on the earth with some demons, even though, some of them are presently in bondage.
Satan himself,  shall be bound, in the future, when he would attempt  to disrupt the  establishment of the millennium reign of our Lord.

Revelation 20:2  And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

But  then presently some of the demons are bound.

Jude 1:6  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day

Presently, satan and some of the demons are on the earth. See scriptures to affirm this.

Job 1:7  And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

1Th 2:18  Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.

It might interest you to know what the  devil and his cohorts  are doing .presently .  Since he failed in heaven, he now engage in  fighting God  by doing the following:
1 fighting against the plans of God.
2. fighting against the purposes of God.
3. fighting against the fulfilment of prophecies of God.
4. fighting against the fulfilment of the promises of God.
5. fighting against the preaching of the gospel.
6. fighting against the people of God.
7. fighting against the  Prince of Peace.
He is doing all these tirelessly because he knew he has a short time.
But then  as you ponder on  what he has been doing since the plot against Adam and Eve at Eden, till the time our Lord came during His earthly ministry and returned to heaven.
This continued in the period of the apostles till now and even till the end of the great tribulation.
You might ask why this is terned a short time?
Yes the time  seems long but as you compare all of these with  eternity. It is infinitesimal.
This is why he and his cohorts are fighting  with great wrath against  everything that pertaining to God.
Beloved, you might be wondering what prompted satan with all his position and privileges in heaven, to want to dethrone God.
He engaged in warfare  in heaven because he  was not satisfied with his position  there. He wanted more dominion and power.
Remember this always. Whenever you see nation against nation at war. War in place of work or in a nation or in a marriage.
The root cause is dissatisfaction with present position. See what the Bible  says.

James 4:1  From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

 
See what the Bible says about the reasons why the devil plotted to dethrone God. He wanted increased power and dominion.

Isa 14:12 — Isa 14:15  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!  For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

This is further amplified through Ezekiel. His beauty and position got into his head and led him into  inordinate ambition. See it.

Ezekiel 28:11-17 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee..

To quench the plot of satan Michael and the holy angels  of God had to fight against  him.

Revelation 12:7 -8  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

Praise God they were defeated. But then Michael has had to contend with the devil at other times and he shall still do so during the great tribulation. See scriptures to affirm this.
1. On the issue of the body of Moses.

Jude 1:9  Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

2. To stop the information Daniel needed concerning Israel.

Dan 10:2 — Dan 10:3  In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.

Dan 10:10 — Dan 10:14  And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands. And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

Dan 10:19 — Dan 10:21  And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me. Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

3. During the great tribulation, Michael shall fight to defend Israel.

Daniel 12:7  And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

Dan 12:1 — Dan 12:2, And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

Beloved, because the devil failed to prevail in heaven, you can be rest assured, he can not prevail against you too in Jesus name. See what the Bible says.

Jeremiah 1:19  And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the Lord, to deliver thee.

Jer 15:20 — Jer 15:21  And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the Lord. And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.

Psalms 129:2  Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.

Beloved , when the devil and his fallen angels were defeated, they were  casted out of heaven and thrown into the earth.

Rev 12:9 — Rev 12:10  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

This is the point you must take this word of caution. The major and  principal vice  that was the undoing of satan in heaven was deception. See it again.

Revelation 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Now on the earth, he and his cohorts have not changed. They still engage in deception and other vices. See this confirmed by our Lord Jesus Christ.

John 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Mat 13:18 — Mat 13:19  Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

Mat 13:37 — Mat 13:39  He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

See how the blessed Holy Spirit affirms  same  through apostle Paul.

2Co 4:3 — 2Co 4:4  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 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.

2Co 11:13 — 2Co 11:15  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

2Th 2:8 — 2Th 2:12  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

This same deception shall he continue to be  doing,  even , during the great tribulation.

Revelation 13:14  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Rev 20:2 — Rev 20:3  And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

Rev 20:7 — Rev 20:10  And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 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.

Please don’t allow the devil and his cohorts to deceive you. It shall be so in Jesus name.

1Pe 5:8 — 1Pe 5:9  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

God judged  Lucifer and his fallen angels, by casting them out of heaven, because of the evil they did.
Don’t forget He will judge anyone and everyone commiting sin and that includes you.
So avoid it by doing  away with sin to avoid His fierce and righteous Judgement on sin.
Our Lord confirms satan was in heaven before and was casted out because of sin.

Luke 10:18  And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

John 12:31  Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

Rev 12:9 — Rev 12:10  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

The inhabitants of heaven rejoiced about  this victory.

Revelation 12:10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

In fact there are prophecies about this victory and subsequent ones.

Psalms 22:28  For the kingdom is the Lord’s: and he is the governor among the nations.

Psa 145:11 — Psa 145:13They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.  Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

Psa 2:1 — Psa 2:9  Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath,and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.  I will declare the decree:the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.  Ask of me,and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

Revelation 11:15  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Beloved, it is important for you to know how this celebrated victory was won and for you too, to plug into it.

Rev 12:11 — Rev 12:12  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

This becomes necessary because this victory avails for all believers and that includes you in particular.
See what the Bible says.

1 Corinthians 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 2:14  Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

How did they overcome?

Revelation 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

1. Blood of the Lamb. The same blood through which you were saved.

Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

1Pe 1:18 — 1Pe 1:19  Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

2. Word of  their testimony

2 Corinthians 4:13  We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

You shall overcome through the word  of God, abiding in you.

1Jo 2:10 — 1Jo 2:14  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake. I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father. I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

Speak the word at all times against the devil.
See how  to speak the word.

Acts 27:25  Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.

3.  They loved not  their lives to the end. They trusted the  Lord till end, while exposing their lives to danger during the prolonged warfare.

Matthew 16:25  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

Act 21:10 — Act 21:14  And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus. And when he was come unto us, he took Paul’s girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles. And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus. And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of the Lord be done.

See God’s promises when you do this.

Rom 8:37 — Rom 8:39  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 16:20  And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Beloved , no doubt you too shall engage in warfare with the devil and his cohorts as you determined to be part of the dawning rapture.
But then as you persevere like Michael and the angels of God, during the warfare in heaven which led to their  victory.
You too shall be victorious and the prophecy of what  John saw about the twenty four elders before the throne shall be fulfilled concerning you in particular in Jesus name.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.  And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Beloved, as you consider the deep and faultless  truths in chapter twelve of the book of Revelation, the blessed Holy Spirit is set to refresh your memory and help you to be extremely  decisive.
You need to be very sincere about your self. Which side are you presently?  Are you on the side of Christ, ?  who shall reign with His own saints  at the end of time?  Those who have decided to follow Him through thick and thin.

Rev 14:4 — Rev 14:5  These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Rev 2:9 — Rev 2:10  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Beloved are you with the nominal churchgoers globally who are indecisive?
They are neither in or out. They are halting between two opinions  They are miserable people, presently trading their eternal well-being with temporal ephemeral.

1 Corinthians 15:19  If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

Rev 3:15 — Rev 3:19  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

1Ki 18:21  And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

   Beloved, please don’t be presumptuous. Examine yourself. With the understanding of what you have  now known about the end time events.
The certainty of the dawning rapture and the indescribable calamities awaiting those that shall be part of the great tribulation.
You can not afford not to be decisive as one of the wise virgins. So examine yourself sincerely.

2 Corinthians 13:5  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

The book of Revelation in chapter twelve takes us back to memory lane and the history of the fall of satan before the creation of the earth .
Then immediately, it  brings us back to the middle of the great tribulation, to see the travails of the nation of Israel in particular, after the Antichrist, would have broken the peace pact at the second half of the remaining three and half years. See it yourself.

Revelation 12:6  And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Beloved, always remember, the book of Revelation is full of symbols.
The woman is the nation of Israel and the number of days there is three and half years of the second half.
Now see the entirety of the chapter and see some things revealed vividly without any iota of doubt.

Rev 12:1 — Rev 12:17  And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Beloved, from these verses , you discover five things.
1. The great wonder of  the woman. The nation of Israel.

Revelation 12:1  And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.

2. The revelation of the birth of Christ and  His ascension back to heaven  after His death and resurrection.  He is the one that shall rule all nations. But facing fierce opposition from birth to the time of battles that shall precede His reigning on the earth.

Revelation 12:5  And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

3. The wonder of  the fallen dragon. Satan and his angels, before the creation of the earth.

Revelation 12:3  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4. The war in  heaven. Michael leading the angels of God to fight Satan and his fallen angels.

Revelation 12:7  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

5. The devil fighting with Israel through the  Antichrist during the great tribulation.

Revelation 12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

  Beloved, let set some of these five vivid revelations in details.

Rev 12:1 — Rev 12:6  And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days..

Who is this woman travailing in birth?

Rev 12:1 — Rev 12:2  And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

See what the Bible says about her
Israel as a nation is referred to as a  woman.

Isa 54:5 — Isa 54:7  For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. For the Lord hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.  For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

 She has crown on her head. Pointing to the future glory of Israel.

Isaiah 62:3  Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

Isa 62:4 — Isa 62:5  Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee,and thy land shall be married.  For as a young man marrieth a virgin,so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.

Isa 60:1 — Isa 60:2  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.  For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

Isaiah 60:20  Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

 This woman clothe with the Sun and moon and twelve stars. Remember the dream of Joseph and the interpretation  by Jacob  his father. See it.

Gen 37:9 — Gen 37:11  And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

 This woman is travailing in child birth. This is the nation of Israel from where our Lord Jesus Christ was born in incarnation.

Isa 66:7 — Isa 66:8  Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

Isaiah 26:17  Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O Lord.

Don’t forget, it is from Israel our Lord,  was born. The  Sun of righteousness came  from.

Mic 5:2 — Mic 5:4   But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.  Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel. And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.

Mal 4:1 — Mal 4:2  For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

  Beloved the second  thing you discover is the wonder of the red dragon.

Rev 12:3 — Rev 12:4  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

 This red dragon is no other person apart from the adversary. It was his revelatio as Lucifer before the fall.

Revelation 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Isa 14:12 — Isa 14:15  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:  I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

Ezk 28:12 — Ezk 28:17  Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

This dragon drew the third part of the stars of heaven. These stars were  angels of God under the leadership of Lucifer, before he fell. He deceived  them.

Job 38:7  When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

This red dragon wanted to devour the child that was to be born.

Rev 12:3 — Rev 12:5  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

You will recount all that satan used Herod to do  to kill Jesus. His contention was traceable to the pronouncement of God at Eden.

Genesis 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Mat 2:1 — Mat 2:8  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, 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. When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

Mat 2:16 — Mat 2:18  Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

This red dragon has seven heads and ten horns and seven  crowns..
These are the representation of the false power and influence of satan on the whole world.

Isaiah 27:1  In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent;and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Rev 16:13 — Rev 16:14  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

The red dragon has ten horns. His deceptive and sensual power  for lying wonders.

Daniel 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

Daniel 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.

Daniel 7:20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.

Satan shall empowers the Antichrist in his bid  to  pursue his ambition  to rule against the purpose of God.
But then ultimately, he would be bound and casted into the  lake of fire with his fallen  angels.

2Th 2:3 — 2Th 2:4  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; 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, shewing himself that he is God.

Revelation 20:2  And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Matthew 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:

Lastly you shall discover the incarnation of our Lord and His ascension after His passion.

Revelation 12:5  And she brought forth a man child,o rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

See innumerable prophecies about the certainty of the triumph of our Lord, despite  fierce opposition from the devil.

Psa 2:6 — Psa 2:9  Yet have I set my king  upon my holy hill of Zion.  I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.  Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

Isa 9:6 — Isa 9:7  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. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Daniel 2:44  And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Dan 7:13 — Dan 7:14  I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Micah 5:2  But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Zechariah 9:10  And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.

Luk 1:32 — Luk 1:33  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Revelation 11:15  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Rev 19:15 — Rev 19:16  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. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Beloved, what are you going to do with these certain to happen truths before you as revealed  in chapter twelve of the book of Revelation?
1. You have seen the travails awaiting Israel and the rebelious unrepentant worldlings, during the imminent great tribulation.

Revelation 12:6  And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

2. You have seen the present deception of satan deceiving the world with lying wonders and carting them to damnation with him.
You shall not be damned.
Don’t be carried away with miracles without  godliness  and righteousness..
Power and prosperity  without purity.
Healing without holiness..

Mat 24:24 — Mat 24:26  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

Rev 16:13 — Rev 16:14  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

 3. You have also seen  the temporal travails of Christ and His saints, but then also the ultimate enduring triumph.

Revelation 11:15  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Beloved , you are destined to reign with Christ. But then you need to have vision and passion to be part of the twenty four elders apostle John saw in the revelations Jesus gave him.
This must energise  you to be decisive like Joshua..

Joshua 24:15   And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

You must be determined to be on the Lord side like Moses.

 

Exodus 32:26  Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the Lord’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.

You must be watchful  and  prayerful like  Paul apostle.

Luk 21:34 — Luk 21:36  And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

2Ti 2:11 — 2Ti 2:13  It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself

Then and only then with the help of the blessed Holy Spirit, you shall surely be among the twenty four elders apostle John saw around the throne After the imminent rapture in Jesus name.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.  And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | January 22, 2020. Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional    Revelation 4:1 -5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.

Beloved, always remember that not a jot or title of God’s unfailing, unchanging, and  infallible words of God shall go unfulfilled.

Isaiah 34:16  Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

Matthew 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

The only acceptable response of wise  believers like you that shall be part of the imminent rapture  and be rewarded  at  eternity,  is determined  prompt and joyful wholehearted obedience to the entirety of His unfailing and unchanging eternal words.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

The woes that preceded the overwhelming calamities of the inhabitants of the earth were foretold and fulfilled to the letter.

Revelation 8:13  And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

See the beginning and the.endimg  of the fulfilment  of the first  woe.

Revelation 9:1  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

Revelation 9:12  One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.

At this time the  second woe is passed . The series of  fearful calamities and catastrophes that have taken place when  the sixth trumpet was blown.
Unfortunately, all of these punishments  seems not to be sufficient to lead the rebelious inhabitants of the earth to avert the final Judgement by timely repentance.
This further reveals God’s long-suffering  and the rejection of His mercies.

Rev 9:13 — Rev 9:15  And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

Revelation 11:14  The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

Beloved, I bessech you to sincerely examine  yourself now.
What is your reaction to God’s loving correction?
Do you know that some nominal churchgoers globally, behave like bastards and like the inhabitants of the earth at this period of time great tribulation?

Heb 12:5 — Heb 12:11  And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.  If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

Do you know that increasing intensity of sufferings for unrepentant worldlings and carefree nominal churchgoers globally, is not peculiar to this period of great tribulation.?
Even now , If God corrects you in love and you refuse to bend, He will increase the intensity of the punishment. See it.

Micah 6:9  The Lord’s voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.

Lev 26:14 — Lev 26:26  But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments; And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant: I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you. And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits. And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins. I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your high ways shall be desolate. And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me; Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins. And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.

Psa 107:17 — Psa 107:18 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

But then when a believer shows  remorse  sincerely, like the people of Nineveh responded to the warning of Jonah. Then God will bring an end to the punishment.
Please don’t ever forget this.

Lev 26:40 — Lev 26:42   If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me; And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity: Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.

Now the time is set for the voice of the seventh trumpet.

Revelation 10:7  But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

Ezekiel 2:10  And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.

The third woe as usual shall bring about increased intensity of calamities. Jerusalem shall be plundered and the temple burnt. Almost a million  of lives shall be lost. Thank God, you shall not witness it  in Jesus name.

Rev 11:14 — Rev 11:19 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Beloved, just like there was silence in heaven, when the seventh seal was opened.

Rev 8:1 — Rev 8:2  And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets

So also there were great voices , when the seventh trumpet was blown. See it.

Rev 11:15 — Rev 11:17  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

  But then what informed these great voices?
They were celebrating and rejoicing in advance  the one thousand years  millennium reign  of Christ.
All over the scriptures in both old and new testaments, divers prophecies have been made , concerning, the dominion of Christ and His reign. See some of them.

Psalms 72:11  Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

Psalms 86:9  All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.

Daniel 2:44  And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Dan 7:13 — Dan 7:14  I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Daniel 7:27  And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Luk 1:31 — Luk 1:33  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Revelation 12:10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

However, as saints and angels are rejoicing  in advance,  the lawful possessions  of what belong to Christ. There is indignation on the earth and momentum are being gathered to oppose it. See it.

Revelation 11:18  And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

See divers prophecies about it.

Psa 2:1 — Psa 2:5  Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath,and vex them in his sore displeasure.

Act 4:25 — Act 4:26  Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

Revelation 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.

Rev 19:19 — Rev 19:21  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. 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. 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.

Beloved, the good Lord shall help you to be part of the dawning rapture in Jesus name. This is because the saints of God shall be rewarded, during the reign of Christ.  See this in the second part of this scripture. YOU TOO SHALL BE REWARDED THEN IN JESUS NAME.

Revelation 11:18  And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

See some prophecies about these rewards  of saints for which you are going to be part of.

2 Corinthians 5:10  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

This Judgement seat of Christ is for reward of joyful service rendered by saints  to Christ in love to advance His kingdom on earth.
1. Crowns.

Rev 2:9 — Rev 2:10  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

2. White raiment.

Revelation 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.

3. Crowns.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

4. Shining as stars for ever.

Daniel 12:3  And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

5. Crowns

Revelation 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,

6. White robes.

Rev 6:10 — Rev 6:11  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? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

7.  Married to Christ for ever.

Rev 19:6 — Rev 19:9  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. 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. 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. 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.

8, Partaking and reigning with Christ, during the millennium.

Revelation 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.

9  Access to the tree of life, lost by Adam.

Rev 22:12 — Rev 22:14  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Beloved, do you see what awaits you and the other faithful saints. Do everything possible to be part of the dawning rapture. The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name
BUT THEN  FIERCE AND INTENSE  JUDGEMENT, SHALL BE POURED ON THE REBELIOUS INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH. See the last statement in this scripture again and verse nineteen.

Revelation 11:18  And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Revelation 11:19  And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Beloved, there is something you must discover about the throne of God in heaven.
Normally when you think of throne, you think of palace. But the throne of God in heaven is not in the palace, but inside the temple.  See this affirmed severally and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Revelation 11:19  And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake

Why were  lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, coming from the temple? It is because that is where the throne of God is. He will judge and destroy the inhabitants of the earth at this time of the great tribulation, from His throne in the temple.  See this.

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.

See these verses combining the   voices, and thunderings, and lightnings;  and the throne from the temple.

Rev 16:17 — Rev 16:18  And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

Rev 14:15 — Rev 14:17  And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

Beloved, God shall pour fearful wrath upon the unrepentant worldlings and inhabitants of the earth from His throne inside the temple.

Rev 6:12 — Rev 6:17  And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

But then for saints and  angelic beings  in   heaven, the throne in the temple is for worship. You shall be there in Jesus name. See it.

Rev 4:8 — Rev 4:11   And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, 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, 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.

Isa 6:1 — Isa 6:4.  In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts:  the whole earth is full of his glory.And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

Beloved, the blowing of the seventh trumpet made the twenty four elders and others celebrated the millennium in advance. See it.

Rev 11:15 — Rev 11:16  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

Because this is going to be so.
Endeavor to do the needful now as one of the wise virgins in the parable of our Lord and be part of the twenty four elders apostle John saw in the revelations. It shall be so for you in particular in Jesus name.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:5  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.  And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 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.
