Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | January 16, 2020 – A voice which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things. – Revelation 4:1 -5 [9]

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | January 16, 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, a time has come again that God our loving Father in heaven is revealed to us again in the revelation of end time event  as a  faithful and covenant keeping God, very dependable and reliable.

Deuteronomy 7:9  Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

This is because of the unfolding of events  at the end of the  six seal and before  the opening of the seventh seal.
The second part of the three and half years have began and God  has started to unleash His long awaited Judgement on the unrepentant worldlings at that time. Praise God, you and I shall not be there in Jesus name.
There was a question at the end of the fulfilment of the six seal, when the worldlings have realised that the great day of His wrath has come.  See it.

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?

The question is who shall be able to stand at this time of the wrath of God?

 Then comes the discovery of the group of people that shall survive the wrath of God during the great tribulation.
This is because God suspended  the full blown of Judgement that the opening of the seventh seal contain, to ensure these people are preserved.
It is in  this same way God shall go extra mile to ensure you in particular, shall be part of the dawning rapture in Jesus name
This is because  another angle came from heaven and informed the four angels who are to pour the wrath of God on the four corners of the world, referred to as four winds to hold on till some group of people are sealed , so that the impact of  His Judgement  all over the world would not affect them. See it

Rev 7:1 — Rev 7:3  And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 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.

See the meaning of the four winds. It means Judgement of God.

Jeremiah 49:36  And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.

Daniel 7:2  Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.

Matthew 24:31  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Beloved the reason why these people shall be sealed and the impact of God’s Judgement during the great tribulation shall not affect them , has to do with the two purposes the  great tribulation is to achieve.

The first purpose is to pour God’s unrestrained wrath on the rebelious worldlings.

The second purpose is to make the Jews to seek for the Messiah they initially rejected as a nation.

It might amaze you that up till now, apart from the negligible population of Jews, converted through the preaching of the gospel all over the world  as  our Lord commanded.

The nation of Israel as a whole have not accepted Jesus our Lord as Savior

Matthew 24:14  And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Beloved recount what Jesus our Lord said to them during His earthly ministry. See it yourself.

Luk 13:34 — Luk 13:35 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

It is during the great tribulation when majority of them would have been killed, that they will begin to pray , asking God to send back Jesus , the Messiah back to them.
See the prophecy about their prayer at the time of great tribulation.

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.

Zch 13:1 — Zch 13:2  In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land,

and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
See the prophecies that two third of the Jews would be destroyed during the great tribulation and the remaining one third as they cried to God shall be saved.

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.

Deu 4:30 — Deu 4:31 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

Jer 30:4 — Jer 30:7  And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. 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.

 

This same remaining one third that shall be saved was prophesied in the new testament.

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.

Beloved, this was why God suspended the global Judgement for some time during the great tribulation, for some of the Jews to be sealed and they shall be preserved during the great tribulation and even outlived the period. See those that were sealed.

Rev 7:1 — Rev 7:8  And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 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.

Beloved as these Jews were sealed , they shall be preserved from every cruel things  the Antichrist  shall be doing to every other person in the world at the time of the great tribulation.
Also  they shall be preserved from  every  other forms of Judgement coming from God to others on the earth during the great tribulation.
What will be making others in the whole world at that time to seek for death shall not affect them.  See it yourself.

Rev 9:3 — Rev 9:4  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

Rev 9:5 — Rev 9:6  And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

Beloved this initial one hundred and forty four thousands  sealed and saved  Jews  are the people that  will be  reaching out in love and facilitate the conversion of the remaining Jews that shall be saved.
Even though the other Jews shall still be suffering what others in the world are going through, they shall be saved .
Also  the gentiles from all over the world, who shall take their stand and decline the mark of the Antichrist shall be saved also , but  their lives shall be lost  See it.

Rev 7:9 — Rev 7:15  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.

However, there is a great lesson for you to learn from the lives of these Jews that shall be sealed and preserved during the great tribulation.
If you will commit yourself to doing what they shall be doing, that qualifies them to be sealed. You also shall be preserved from all the cruelty of satan and his cohorts, now  and be part of the imminent rapture. See it.

Rev 14:1 — Rev 14:3 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.

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.

Ezekiel 9:4  And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

1. THEY WERE NOT DEFILED WITH WOMEN. THEY WERE VIRGINS. If you too shall avoid things that can defile you according to the Bible, you shall enjoy the same privilege now.  See things that defiles.

Mar 7:20 — Mar 7:23  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.

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 FOLLOWED THE LAMB AT ALL TIMES  THROUGH THICK AND THIN.

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.

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.

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. THEY WERE REDEEMED.FROM AMONG MEN  AND SAVED FROM ALL SINS.

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:14   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.

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:

4. THEY LIVED A LIFE OF TRUTHFULNESS  FREE  FROM  ALL GUILE OR ALL FORMS OF  LIES.  THEY SEPARATE THEMSELVES FROM EVERYTHING THE BIBLE REFERS TO AS ABOMINATION.

Psa 32:2  Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity,and in whose spirit there is no guile.

1 Thessalonians 2:3  For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:

1 Peter 2:1  Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,

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.

Beloved, God’s grace is sufficient for you to do all of these now , without stress.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Beloved , if you determinedly do all these faithfully till Christ comes, then you shall be part of the twenty four elders, apostle John saw in the book of Revelation 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.
