Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | January 15, 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, there is something you are going to discover about our loving Father in heaven from the outset of creation, He has never been a task master. He gave humanity, the crown of His creation freedom and liberty to choose whatever they wanted to do.
He made them free moral agent.

However, the choice any human being made and that includes you, shall determine both their earthly and eternal well-being. This is because they shall be accountable to Him ultimately.

Please don’t ever forget this, as you daily make your choice before you will meet with Him in eternity.

Ecc 12:13 — 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.

But then I personally rejoice with you, because you are a very wise person. Always remember that your choice to be wise shall profit you here and hereafter in Jesus name.

So please endeavor to sustain your wiseness till you meet our loving Father in heaven in Jesus name.

Pro 9:12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself:but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it

Beloved, do you know it is very easy to discover a wise person? Such a person is determinedly resolute to always give priority to eternal things.

He takes his or her decisions at all times from the perspective of eternity. He or she is always weighing everything being done by him or her on how every action affects his or her eternal well-being.

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

Such a wise person like you give attention to the biblical definition of being wise according to the saying of our Lord Jesus Christ. See it.

Mat 7:24 — 27 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Beloved there are two sayings of Jesus, that I want you to determinedly give attention to.

1. Jesus exhorts you in particular to fear His Father and your own Father in heaven.

Luke 12:5 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.

2. He affirmed the certainty of two eternal destinies. You in particular shall end your earthly sojourn in one. But then your personal decisions today shall determine which eternity you shall be forever. The buck stops with you.

Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Beloved you have discovered from the scriptures that the end time is here and the rapture is dawning. The seven years of the great tribulation shall begin immediately after the rapture.

This seven years of devastation and the unleashing of God’s long awaited fierce Judgement, shall be broken into two three and half years. See it. The one week in the prophecy of Daniel was seven years.

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 first three and half years shall have satan, the Antichrist and his human agents perpetrating indescribable cruelty on the inhabitants of the earth at that time.

 

See the things that shall happen as the first five seals are opened by the glorified Lamb of God and the Lion of the tribe of Juda.

Seal 1. Deception of Antichrist as the false Christ, establishing short lived global peace and encouraging the people to take mark 666, the symbol of global unity.

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.

Seal 2. The withdrawal of the peace and massive destruction of people globally through international wars.

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.

Seal 3 Global famine that shall take the lives many people all over the world.

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.

Seal 4. Divers pestilences that shall kill one quarter of the population of the whole world.

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.

Seal 5. The magnanimity and providence of God and the Lamb on the souls of tribulation saints killed for refusing to take the mark of Antichrist . They were honored with white robes in heaven .

Rev 6:9 — 11 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 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.

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 at the outset of the second half of the three and half years of the period of the great tribulation, shall be full of indescribable wrath.

This is because God and the Lamb shall be unleashing their long awaited Judgement on the inhabitants of the world,

As the Lamb of God opened the sixth seal, all the inhabitants of the earth, including the Antichrist and his agents shall all experience the wrath of God.

Everyone on the face of the Earth shall suffer. Not a single person shall be spared. See it yourself.

Rev 6:12 — 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?

Beloved, this is the time God sits on the throne of Judgement.

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.

Psa 9:7 But the Lord shall endure for ever:he hath prepared his throne for judgment.

Beloved, at this time the inhabitants of the earth shall literally be looking for death.

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 by the grace of God none of us shall witness this fearful devastation in Jesus name.

But then, the reason why majority of today’s professors of religion and nominal churchgoers globally shall be part of it is because, they take God for granted.

Please I beseech you in particular in the name of the Lord, don’t ever take God for granted.

Ecc 8:11 — 13 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.

Beloved, see innumerable prophecies from both old and new testaments about these indescribable and fearful judgement of God at this time.

Mat 24:21 — 22 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.

Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

Luk 21:25 — 26 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

Isaiah 29:6 Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

Isa 13:6 — 13 Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. 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.

Jer 4:23 — 29 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by his fierce anger. For thus hath the Lord said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end. For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it. The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks:
every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein.

Ezk 32:7 — 9 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light. All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord God. I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which thou hast not known.

Hag 2:6 — 7 For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.

Joe 2:10 — Joe 2:11 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible;
and who can abide it?

Beloved, their is one unfortunate thing that shall be happening at this time. THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE DOING THREE THINGS. See them:

1. THEY SHALL BE LOOKING FOR DEATH

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?

2. THEY SHALL NOT REPENT OF THEIR SINS

Rev 9:20 — 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.

3. THEY SHALL BE FIGHTING GOD AND BLASPHEMING HIS HOLY NAME.

Rev 16:18 — 21 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. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

However, beloved because we are wise. Yourself and myself. We also are aware of this imminent devastation and fearful judgement of God.

But we shall escape it. See what we shall do, because we are wise. The grace of God will avail for us in Jesus name.

2Pe 3:10 — 14 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

Tit 2:11 — 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;

Beloved, because of this wise decision we have made and shall determinedly carryout to logical conclusion. This Revelation that apostle John saw about the twenty four elders sitting round the throne of grace shall be fulfilled in our lives in the mighty name of Jesus.

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.
