Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | January 13, 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,  it is true that God our Father in heaven is loving and has no pleasure in the death of the wicked.

Ezekiel 33:11  Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

2 Peter 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

However, when the wicked persist in their sins, ultimately they shall be judged.  Remember He patiently waited for the first world
Noah was building the ark and preaching to them

2Pe 2:5   And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

But when they refused to heed,  the warning, the  flood came and destroyed them.

1 Peter 3:20  Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water

You shall not be destroyed. Please heed the call to repentance of our God and adequately prepare, so that you shall partake in the imminent rapture and avert the fury of His long awaited Judgement.
Beloved, our Lord Jesus Christ promised the believers of all ages and you in particular, that before the Judgement of the great tribulation shall begin, He would have taken His followers to safety.

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.

His church for which you are one would have been raptured to heaven. This is because they have taken advantage of the throne of grace, so they all and you in particular shall avoid throne of Judgement.

Rev 4:1 — 6  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. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

Beloved, God’s throne of Judgement consist of lightning and thunder. See them  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.

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.

Rev 16:17 — 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.

But then what do you know about thunder? When and for what purpose, does  God uses thunder for?  Of course from time immemorial, God uses thunder for Judgement. See it yourself.
Remember the instance when  Samuel prayed and God sent lighting against the  Philistines.

1Sa 7:10  And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the Lord thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel.

Beloved, the fury of God shall begin to be unleashed against the wicked and rebelious worldlings and backsliders , as Jesus, the Lamb of God and Lion of Judah starts to open the seven seals one after the other.

Rev 5:4 — 7  And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.  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.

Beloved, the period of great tribulation shall be for seven years, but it would begin with the first three and half years and then latter following after the other three and  half years.
The first three and half years shall begin with the deception of the Antichrist bringing false peace into the world to win the rebellious worldlings to himself.

Rev 6:1 — 2  And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

 
The Antichrist is symbolically represented sitting on a horse for war having a bow in his hand, signifying false peace.
Whenever you see horse in the book of Revelation, it  means war.

Proverbs 21:31  The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the Lord.

Job 39:19 — 22  Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?  Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.  He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.

 
So the first appearance of the Antichrist during the great tribulation is to establish false peace. See it again.

Rev 6:1 — 2  And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

See the amplification of this in prophecies both in the old and new testaments.

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 in that passage means seven years.

Dan 8:24 — 25  And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

1Th 5:1 — 3  But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 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.

Beloved, see the prophecy of our Lord. The Antichrist shall come with deception as the false Christ  , bringing peace and encouraging them ,not to look for the real Messiah and Prince of Peace, in the person of out Lord Jesus Christ.

Mat 24:3 — 5  And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

But then when he has successfully deceived the world, he shall now come in his true color. Taking away the peace and bring painful destruction. See it yourself as our Lord open the second seal. He shall take the peace away from the world.

Rev 6:3 — 4  And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword

Here  you see the Antichrist in his true color on the horse , signifying war , taking away peace and killing the people on earth at that time.  There would be a global war and multitude of people shall be killed all over the world.

Matthew 24:6  And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Jer 8:15 — 16  We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble! The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.

Beloved as the third seal is opened. The impact of the global war and killing shall bring famine. This is because there would be no time to farm. Food would then be rationed all over the world and multitude shall die of hunger.

Rev 6:5 — 6  And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

See the interpretation in prophecies.  The black horse signify famine at the time of war .

Lam 5:9 — Lam 5:10  We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness. Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.

Matthew 24:7  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Leviticus 26:26  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.

This famine shall be so intense and multitude of people all over the world shall die.
And then as the forth seal is opened, the full destruction of people all over the world  begins, especially those who refuse the mark of the Antichrist.

Rev 6:7 — 8  And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

See this previously prophesied over and over in the Bible.

Matthew 24:7  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Leviticus 26:22  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.

Leviticus 26:25  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.

Jer 30:5 — 8  For thus saith the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.  Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:

Beloved these are the things that shall happen in the first three and half years, when the Antichrist comes with deception and deceived them to take his mark 666 for global unity.
After he has deceived them, he will now begin to come out in his true color.
But then, he shall be very brutal during the last three and half years of the seven years of the great tribulation.
It is something you must not witness and you shall not witness in Jesus name.
It is true that today, things might be a little bit difficult for you.  You might be going through persecution.
Yes all believers including you shall partake in tribulation in this world during the era of grace and church age.
But shall not be part of the great tribulation, when the triune God are all out to unleash Judgement on the sinning worldlings.  See what the Bible says about persecution and tribulation  at this time of grace.

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.

Acts 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

Rev 2:9 — 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.

 But then what shall happen during the great tribulation, when judgment is coming from God and Jesus, shall be unbearable. Inhabitants of the earth shall literally be  looking for death at that time. See it yourself.

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?

Beloved, I beseech you in the name of Jesus, do everything needful for you to do as a wise virgin and avoid the great tribulation.  If at this time you are compromising because of little challenges.
Will you be able to bear it when the Antichrist comes? God forbid . You shall not be here then in Jesus name.  See what the Bible says.
If you can not endure tribulation in the period of grace, shall you be able to endure great tribulation in the period of God’s vengeance and Judgement?

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?

See the counsel of Christ for you.

Luk 21:34 — 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.

Matthew 24:13  But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

May the Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
