Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | January 09, 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,  the blessed Holy Spirit is taking us on a journey of discover of  the  certainty of the catching away of dead saints and the living saints as unfolded in the revelations our Lord Jesus Christ gave to apostle John at Patmos, when the devil felt he had done his worst again him.
How  you too must always be sensitive because the Lord could visit  you, with lifetime encounter when you are going through fierce challenges. See the situation of apostle John.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The first thing you must discover about the book of Revelation, is that our Lord who gave John the revelations broke it into three parts. See it yourself.

Revelation 1:19  Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

Part 1. THE THINGS HE SAW.
He was to write the things he saw about the glorified Son of the living God in His majestic and kingly regalia.

Rev 1:10 — 17  I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.  And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 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. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

Part 2 THE THINGS WHICH ARE.
The situation report of the seven churches. Seven means total, complete, full etc. This represents  the entire universal church of Christ  then and  till the end of  church age .  ALL THESE WERE SEEN IN CHAPTERS TWO AND THREE.

Revelation 1:11  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Part 3.  The things that shall be hereafter. Meaning the end time events. THESE ARE SEEN IN CHAPTERS FOUR TO THE END.

Rev 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, remember the hidden mystery of the rapture took place in between the end of chapter three and beginning of chapter four.

1Co 15:51 — 52  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Beloved, there is something fearsome about the blessed Holy Spirit that should energise you to do everything to be part of the dawning rapture. See it yourself.

Rev 4:4 — 5  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.

These two verses reveals the representative of the raptured church, the twenty four elders before the throne of God and also in verse five, the return of the blessed Holy Spirit back to heaven, before the throne of God.
 in heaven.
If the Lord tarries tomorrow we shall  deal in details the raptured saints , represented by the twenty four elders.  But this morning you must discover what you must not forget and you must not experience about the blessed Holy Spirit. See it again.

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.

First, let us establish from the scriptures, that , that is the return of the blessed Holy Spirit back to heaven.
In the beginning of the revelations Jesus gave John. See how He was introduced along side with God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Rev 1:4 — 6  John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

You see the triune Godhead. The Father was introduced in  chapter one verse four above  as::
Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; this was God the Father. See it confirmed again in chapter four.

Revelation 4:8  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.

Also the blessed Holy Spirit also was introduced in the same chapter one verse four above as: and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne.   See this confirmed in chapter four.

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.

Beloved now see what you need to know but not experienced about  the blessed Holy Spirit . He  came as promised by our Lord to dwell inside of  believers on  the day of Pentecost as Comforter.

Jn 14:16 — 17  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

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

Jn 16:13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

The blessed Holy Spirit faithfully fulfilled this role till the end of the church age in Revelation chapter two and three. See them yourself.

1. Revelation 2:1  Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

Revelation 2:7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

2. Revelation 2:8  And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

Revelation 2:11  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

3. Revelation 2:12  And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

Revelation 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

4. Revelation 2:18  And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

Revelation 2:29  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

5.Revelation 3:1  And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Revelation 3:6  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

6.Revelation 3:7  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

Revelation 3:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

7. Revelation 3:14  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

Revelation 3:22  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Beloved at the end of chapter three the church age ended and were raptured.  John the beloved was a member and representative of the church was seen translated to heaven in chapter four.

Revelation 4:1  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.

You must remember never ever to forget that the reason why the Antichrist has not come now, is because the blessed Holy Spirit is still here restraining him. See it.

2Th 2:2 — 8   That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 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. 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:

At the end of chapter three of the book of Revelation, when the church is raptured, THE BLESSED HOLY SPIRIT RETURNS BACK TO HEAVEN.  THIS IS BECAUSE HE DWELLS INSIDE THE BELIEVERS.
HE DOESN’T ROVE IN THE SKY. HE DWELLS INSIDE THE BELIEVERS. AND NOW THAT, THEY ARE NO MORE ON THE  EARTH. HE RETURNS BACK TO HEAVEN WITH THEM.

John 14:17  Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

HOWEVER, WHEN HE RETURNS BACK TO HEAVEN, HE CHANGED FROM BEING COMFORTER TO THE CHURCH AND  BECOMES  CONSUMING FIRE TO THE WORLD, TO JOIN FORCES WITH GOD THE FATHER AND JESUS TO UNLEASH FEARFUL JUDGEMENT UPON THE REBELLIOUS WORLDLINGS WHO REJECTED HIS MINISTRY, WHILE HE WAS STILL WITH THE BELIEVERS ON EARTH. HE IS NOW REVEALED AS BURNING FIRE, MEANING CONSUMING FIRE. See it yourself.

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.

Rev 6:15 — 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?

Comforter turns consuming fire should not be your portion in Jesus name.  When this fearsome terror is being unleashed , it would be unbearable. This informs why believers who missed the rapture shall not find it funny as they pay with their blood to join the raptured saints in heaven.

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.

Beloved what are you going to do with this discovery?
IT WILL BE VERY PAINFUL TO KNOW WHAT SHALL HAPPEN TO THE WORLDLINGS AFTER WE HAVE BEING RAPTURED.
You shall be part of the raptured saints if you overcome sin, self, flesh , worldliness.  Make sure you have done all your restitutions.
You must stop the daily adultery of living with second wife or second husband. Reconcile with your first spouse now or damn the consequences.You must stop giving bribe or taking bribe. You must be clean from every defilements.

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.

To avoid experiencing the blessed Holy Spirit as consuming fire , you must listen to His sayings today. See one of them. Living by the entirety of God’s unfailing words. Those who fails to do so today shall partake in the great tribulations.
It shall not be your portion. So listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.

Rev 3:10 — 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 good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.
