ISRAEL


Prophecy, being fulfilled?

Rev 13:7 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.

Dan 11:40And 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. 41He 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.

 
HAS THE DRAGON GIVEN ISIS HIS POWER, HIS THRONE, AND GREAT AUTHORITY?
10/25/14  This article explains very well Turkey’s dream to be the Sunni Muslim leader of the world and revive the Ottoman Empire! http://www.jpost.com/International/Foreign-Affairs-Turkeys-elusive-promised-land-379684  A Turkish-led, tri-continental Sunni juggernaut would potentially unsettle Russia’s own 20 million, mostly Sunni. This is besides a seemingly expansionist Turkey alarming former Ottoman vassals like Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia, not to mention Greece. Openly joining Islamic State is unthinkable, but joining its enemies would imply a return to the old order, one whereby distant powers drive across the Middle East using Turkey as their fifth wheel. Until then, however, Ankara will have to contend with hostile Arab regimes, distrustful world powers and a Kurdish resurgence it has so clumsily provoked. Seems ISIS has been chosen!

According to multiple sources in Baghdad, Irbil and elsewhere “down-range,” there are upwards of 40,000 IS fighters in Syria and an equal or greater number in Iraq.

He knows with whom he is dealing, that Caliph. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/15789#.VDwl9fldWSp  Cynical lies are good only for a strategic flight. Caliph Abu Bakr al Baghdadi deserves our respect. The European governments, mirror of the idle self-righteous conscience, are reluctant to act against the Islamists of the Caliph Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and his terrorista, who want to scar the society in which they lived and that gave them birth, who take pride in fighting for the Prophet and who are trying to sweep away any sign of civilization through the imposition of a regime of submission.

Now Daniel has a vision. Is this the same as Neb’s dream? It is the same countries/kingdoms

Four Kingdoms – Lion is Babylon, Bear is Media/Persia, Leopard is Greece/Syria, 4th Beast, Rome 

The same Kingdoms as Neb’s dream, with

Additional information about the individual kingdoms is given.
 
            The lion (Babylon) had eagle’s wings and they were plucked and it became as a man
            The bear (Media/Persia) on one side, 3 ribs in its mouth, devours much flesh (see 11:2 note)
            The leopard (Syria) with 4 wings, 4 heads and dominion
The 4th beast strong, dreadful, terrible and had iron teeth, broke in pieces. It had 10 horns and Up from among them another little horn (06/10/14 http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/ ISIS! A little horn rising up in the middle east!). And the little horn plucked up 3 of the first horns by the roots and became as a man.

A little horn rising up in the middle east!), which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant [land]. 10 And it waxed great, [even] to the host of heaven; and it cast down [some] of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. 11 Yea, he magnified [himself] even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily [sacrifice] was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. 12 And an host was given [him] against the daily [sacrifice] by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered. 13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain [saint] which spake, How long [shall be] the vision [concerning] the daily [sacrifice], and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? 14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

HEAVEN, describe it….make me want it


Heaven, the Land of the Living. God is there and we look on His Goodness, Glory, Beauty and ask questions of Him.  We are His people, and He is our God, our inheritance. There are mansions, many of them, and God prepared them for us. The sun and the moon is no longer the light by day and night, for God is the Everlasting Light, there is no more night. He is seated on His throne, under His feet is like a paved work of a sapphire stone, His throne looks as if it is sapphire, with a rainbow that looks like an emerald surrounding it. He has the appearance of jasper and carnelian with the rainbow surrounding Him and His Glory. The Holy City Jerusalem is the Glory of God, its radiance like a rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. It has a great high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel inscribed on them. The wall is built of jasper, the city is pure gold, clear as glass. The foundations of the wall of the city are adorned with every kind of jewel. The first is jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates are pearls, each gate one single pearl and the street of the city is pure gold, transparent as glass. There is no temple for The Lord God The Almighty and The Lamb are The Temple. The city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light and its lamp is the Lamb. Nations surround it and all the kings of the earth bring their glory into it, but nothing unclean ever enters it, nor anyone false, only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Around the throne are twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones are twenty-four elders, clothed in white clothes, with golden crowns on their heads. From the throne can come flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder, and in front of the throne there are seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God, and in front of the throne there is a sea of glass, like crystal. And around the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind. And in front of His throne is a great multitude of people from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in our hands and loudly saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne and to the Lamb!” These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. We have washed our robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. That is why we are before the throne of God and serve Him day and night in His temple. He shelters us with His presence. We shall never hunger or thirst, the Lamb is our Shepherd and leads us to springs of Living Water. Angels are everywhere and the River of the Water of Life, bright as a crystal flows from the throne of God and of the Lamb. It flows through the middle of the street of the city. On each side of the River is The Tree of Life, with twelve kinds of fruit that it yields each month. The leaves of the tree are used for the healing of the nations. The Lord God Almighty has wiped away every tear from our eyes and no one ever dies, for death is no more. Neither is there any more mourning, or crying, or pain, for the former things are all passed away. A loud voice from the throne announces to us that the dwelling place of God is with man. He dwells with us and we are His people. The animals there are completely tame and have no fear. The wolf and the lamb eat together of the beautiful garden of grass, the lion eats straw like the ox. The animals never hurt or destroy anything in heaven. We are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb, and these are the True Words of God. We are blessed and holy, sharing in the first resurrection! We are priests of God and of Christ and we reign with Christ for a thousand years. We shall judge the world and angels. We are now immortal and bear the image of the heavenly. Death is swallowed up in victory. We dwell with The Lord God forever and ever.

“Oh Give me That Book!” John Wesley: I want to know one thing the way to heaven;


John Wesley: I want to know one thing the way to heaven; how to land safe on that happy shore. God Himself has condescended to teach the way; for this very end He came from heaven. He hath written it down in a book. O give me that book! At any price, give me the book of God! I have it: here is knowledge enough for me.

The entire history of the world is covered in Revelation. Even to the end of our understanding of God’s plans.

We have rehearsed the Bible for thousands of years and are in awe of our Creator God Almighty. He has foretold the future and we are still in awe when it unfolds just like He has told us.

We are in awe to know that when this age of Grace we live in today expires there will be a period of one thousand years and when that expires there will be an eternity with God in His Holy Temple and with mansions He has prepared for us.

Rev 20:7And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison 8and 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. 9And 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.

Ezekiel 38:11And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, 12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places [that are now] inhabited, and upon the people [that are] gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

Rev 20:7-9 and Ezekiel 38 and 39 will be the future after the 1000 year reign of Christ. All Israel and all the Saints in Light will still be reading the Bible during the 1000 year reign of Christ. Looking into the future of Ezekiel 38 and 39, when “fire”will come “down from God out of heaven, and devour them.” Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

BOOK OF LIFE The Lord will blot out his name under heaven


THE BOOK OF LIFE

by Lorita Goza

‘Make sure there is no man or woman, clan or tribe among you today whose heart turns away from the LORD our God.’ ‘The Lord will blot out his name under heaven.’ (Deuteronomy 29:18,20).

‘Now if You would only forgive their sin. But if not, please erase me from the book You have written.” The Lord replied to Moses: “Whoever has sinned against Me I will erase from My book.’ (Exodus 32:32,33)

 It is clear our names were or are all entered into the Book of Life, else how could it be erased. Your name is already in ‘The Book of Life!’

‘This [is] the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him’ (Genesis 5:1)

‘Make sure there is no man or woman, clan or tribe among you today whose heart turns away from the LORD our God.’ ‘The Lord will blot out his name under heaven.’ (Deuteronomy 29:18,20).

 ‘Blot out his name under heaven,’ blotting or erasing a name from the Book of Life.  God is telling Moses, when one turns away from God and refuses to believe in God the Savior, He ‘will blot out his name under heaven.’

‘A river of fire was flowing, coming out from His presence. Thousands upon thousands served Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was convened, and the books were opened.’ (Daniel 7:10)

‘And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.’ (Dan 12:1,2)

‘Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. I will give the victor some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name is inscribed that no one knows except the one who receives it.’ (Revelation 2:17)

All on the earth who worship the beast, their names have been blotted out of the Book of Life. The Lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the world will blot out those names from the Book of Life (Rev 13:8) (See Rev 5:6)

‘And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.’ (Revelation 20:12,15)

A new name will be given to us. With our names being in ‘the Book of Life’ from the beginning this may be the name inscribed on the stone God will give to us. When you accept Christ as your Savior you will be given the Holy Spirit to mark you as a child of God and your name will never be erased from the Book of Life.

‘You Yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your records?’ (Psalm 56:8)

Records are being kept in books in heaven.

‘Let them be erased from the book of life and not be recorded with the righteous.’ (Psalm 69:28)

God has given every life since Adam a name, a name which he has given to each and every seed that would ever exist and recorded them in The Book of Life. Our Creator knows each by name. Not the name you know, but the name God has given you. This is an example of how The Book of Life might look. God has given you a name then sealed you by God The Holy Spirit, given a white garment, given eternal life never to be erased from the Book of Life.

‘God who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. This has now been made evident through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who has abolished death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.’ (2 Timothy 1:9-10)

‘The victor will be given a white garment, and I will never erase his name from the book of lifebut will acknowledge his name before My Father and before His angels.’ (Revelation 3:5)

And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.’ (Revelation 17:8)

‘Standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged according to their works by what was written in the books.’ (Revelation 20:15)

‘And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book* of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.’ (Revelation 22:19)

‘O Death, where is your victory? O Death, where is your sting?’ 1 Cor 15:55

Christ the Savior!

Now if you are wondering, how can I keep my name in the Book of Life you will understand the ‘only’ way is to believe the Truth. Faith in the Christ, the Son of God. He came to be with His people and to die for our sins and to rise from the grave to live eternally in heaven and to lead the way for us to rise from our grave to live with him forever in heaven.

‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, according as he has chosen us in Him (note: the Him is – ‘Christ’) before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love; (note: the Him is – ‘Christ’) Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to thegood pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved (Jesus Christ).’ (Ephesians 1:3-11)

The mystery of Christ, to be specific is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, and fellow members of the body (of Christ), and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus, through the Gospel, and the administration of ‘the mystery’ is through the church. God’s plan is being worked out through the Church, in conformity to that timeless purpose which he centered in Jesus, our Lord. ‘When I think of the greatness of this great plan I fall on my knees before God the Father. That Christ may actually live in your hearts by faith,’ awesome, amazing. Before the foundation of the world, God the Father, according to the good pleasure of His will, decided (foreknew) to predestinate all who believe in the Beloved (Christ), to give them eternal life. (Parts from J B Phillips Ephesians 3:4-11)

It is ‘… the mystery of Christ…’ ‘which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;’ (Ephesians 3: 4) …. ‘which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ;’ (3:9)……. ‘according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:’ (3:11). ‘…..and ..if the rulers and kings of this age had known it they would not have crucified him’ (1 Corinthians 2:7-8).

‘Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints; To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:’ (Colossians 1:26 – 27)

‘Now to Him who has power to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the sacred secret kept silent for long ages, but now revealed and made known through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the command of the eternal God, to advance the obedience of faith among all: To God, only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.’ (Romans 16:25)

‘For God so loved the world He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.’ (John 3:16-18)

Already condemned because before the foundation of the world God planned, the only way to salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ.

‘The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who refuses to believe in the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him.’ (John 3:36)

‘The victor will be given a white garment, and I will never erase his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before My Father and before His angels.’ (Revelation 3:5)

‘O Death where is your victory? O Death where is your sting?’ 1 Cor 15:55

Lamb looked slain, having 7 eyes {Zech 4:10 they [are] the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth} 7 horns = which are the 7 spirits of God, (5:6) = 7 lamps of fire (4:5) = 7 lampstands = 7 churches = Christ (3:1) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (Col 1:17) = Emmanuel 

 

The ‘1st beast’ of Rev 13:2 Is the one who rises up out of the joined forces of the Leopard (ISIS, Syria, Greece), Bear (Media-Persia (ISIS, Turkey, Iran, Iraq)), Lion (Babylon. The 2nd Beast is……


Leopard = ISIS (Greece/Syria)
Bear = Media-Persia (ISIS, Turkey, Iran, Iraq)
Lion = Babylon 
The ‘1st beast’ of Rev 13:2 Is the one who rises up out of the joined forces of the Leopard (ISIS (Greece/Syria), Bear  (Media-Persia (ISIS (Turkey, Iraq, Iran)), Lion (Babylon). The Arab countries are aligning themselves now. ISIS, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, American Muslims. Eze 38:5 ‘……Persia, Ethiopia and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:’
HAS THE DRAGON GIVEN ISIS HIS POWER, HIS THRONE, AND GREAT AUTHORITY?

Revelation Chapter 13:14 through 13:18 is about the 2nd Beast. HE is granted permission to perform great signs (13:7). Granted permission to build the image of the 1st Beast and granted permission to cause anyone who does not worship the 1st Beast to be killed (13:15).  

It is the 2nd Beast who causes all to have the sign of the 1st Beast, ‘to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads’ (13:16). It is HE who we believe is the ‘False Prophet’.(16:13) ..I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  

It is this ‘False Prophet’, Beast, Amazing person who Hates the Harlot, Babylon. It is the False Prophet who I also believe has 3 and one half  years, who will lead the battle of Armageddon.         

It is the 1st Beast’s number (666) and who goes into perdition (17:8), who the dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority(13:2) and who is worshipped by all whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world (13:8). 

“For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.” (17:17) 

The Revived Roman Empire, represented by the Dan 2:42And [as] the toes of the feet’,10 toes (I believe is the revived Ottoman Empire), Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom,

The woman sitting on the beast is the harlot, Babylon.

BABYLON. Someone once said America is the new Babylon. Since that was said there are more choices:

Dubai  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai  Dubai (/dˈb/ doo-BYArabic: دبيّ‎ DubayyIPA: [dʊˈbæj]) is a city in the United Arab Emirates, located within the emirate of the same name. The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE (2,106,177) and the second-largest land territory (4,114 km2) after the capital, Abu Dhabi.[4] Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the only two emirates to have veto power over critical matters of national importance in the country’s legislature.[5] The city of Dubai is located on the emirate’s northern coastline and heads up the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. Dubai is often misperceived as a country or city-state and, in some cases, the UAE as a whole has been described as ‘Dubai’

Abu Dhabi houses important offices of the federal government, and is the seat for the UAE (United Arab Emirates Government) and the home for the Abu Dhabi Emiri Family and the President of the UAE from this family. Abu Dhabi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanisation, coupled with the relatively high average income of its population, has transformed Abu Dhabi to a larger and advanced metropolis. Today the city is the country’s center of politicalindustrial activities, and a major cultural, and commercial centre due to its position as the capital. Abu Dhabi alone generated 56.7% of the GDP of the United Arab Emirates in 2008.

Saudi Arabia, an absolute monarchy ruled by six kings.    http://www.debka.com/newsupdate/7535/    Is this emirate playing the Babylon roll???  3/27/14   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/03/27/saudi-arabia-names-king-abdullah-half-brother-prince-muqrin-second-in-line-to/ Thursday’s appointment puts to rest questions about who would succeed Crown Prince Salman, the king’s designated successor.

Bahrain, the King, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa; the head of government is the Prime Minister, Shaikh Khalīfa bin Salman al Khalifa a constitutional monarchy  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahrain .   Bahrain – Kingdom of the Two Seas. Bahrain is a constitutional monarchy headed by the King, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa; the head of government is the Prime Minister, Shaikh Khalīfa bin Salman al Khalifa, who presides over a cabinet of twenty-five members, where 80% of its members are from the royal family. In a region experiencing an oil boom, Bahrain has the fastest growing economy in the Arab world, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia found in January 2006. Bahrain also has the freest economy in the Middle East according to the 2011 Index of Economic Freedom published by the Heritage Foundation/Wall Street Journal, and is tenth freest overall in the world.

BASRA has a major role in H.G. Wells‘s 1934 future history “The Shape of Things to Come” “where the Iraqi city is at the center of a world state emerging after a collapse of civilization and becomes in effect the capital of the world.” Basra is home to all of Iraq’s six ports; Umm Qasr is the main deep-water port with 22 platforms, some of which are dedicated to specific goods (such as sulfur, seeds, lubricant oil, etc.) The other five ports are smaller in scale and more narrowly specialized. Fishing was an important business before the oil boom. The city also has an international airport, with service into Baghdad with Iraqi Airways—the national airline.

Qatar – Since 1995, Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani has ruled Qatar, seizing control of the country from his father Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani while the latter vacationed in Switzerland. Under Emir Hamad, Qatar has experienced a notable amount of sociopolitical liberalization, including the endorsement of women’s suffrage or right to vote, drafting a new constitution, and the launch of Al Jazeera, a leading English and Arabic news source which operates a website and satellite television news channel.The International Monetary Fund states that Qatar has the highest GDP per capita in the world, followed by Luxembourg. The World Factbook ranks Qatar at second, following Luxembourg.

America is not mentioned in the Bible. It would be reasonable to assume then America has no role in the ‘last days’ playing out. Thus, if America were to prosper and continue affecting the governments, politics and wars it would never play out the way God purposes it to be. Therein the results of American politics has well played into the purpose of God. Americans must take joy in knowing the return of our Lord Jesus Christ is imminent.  Pray for strength, courage and each other to endure whatever plays out till our Lord Jesus Christ returns. www.revelationlastday.com

 The EU, UN, GCC, etc.

The 1st Beast – The one who rises up out of the united countries of (ISIS (Greece, Syria)), Media Persia (ISIS,Turkey, Iran, Iraq), Babylon. Who hates Babylon? And the 10 kings – 17:12who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast 17:16And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.”

 When the 1st Beast, the one who rises up out of the united countries,  and the ten horns destroy Babylon, the beast will then be in control of all the world and the EU will worship the beast by acknowledging his authority and power.

Rev 17:16“And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.” 9:2,11; 11:7; 12:3,9,13; 13:1; 17:3,8,16; 18:18; 19:20; 20:2,3,10; Isa 13:19; Malachi 4:1; 

If the harlot is Babylon (17:15), and the 10 countries (17:16) hate the harlot, then combined countries against Israel hate Babylon and the question is, ‘Who is Babylon’?

Babylon destroyed in one day.
Isa 13:19; And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
Malachi 4:1; 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.
The Ten Toes are often referred to as the Roman Empire cracked up but still the 4th kingdom and reviving now in our day. I believe it will be the Ottoman Empire revived.

Chapter 13:1-10 describes the 1st beast and is separated from verses 11-18 because they describe the 2nd beast and how he worships the 1st beast. Chapter 13 gives a spiritual description of the 1st and 2nd beasts works and covers all of the 7 years – the 1st beast’s 3 ½ yrs and then the 2nd beast’s 3 ½ years. Notice verse 13:5 specifically states the 1st beast has 3 ½ years. Dan 2:36-44; 7:3-7; Zech 1:18-21; Rev 17:12; All refer to the same World Kings and Countries. Zech 1:2,21 The 4 artisans may refer to the 4 horsemen of Rev 6:1-8; Isa 26:21.

Rev 13:1 THEN I stood on the sand of the sea and I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name
9:2,11; 11:7; 12:3,9,13; 13:1; 17:3,8,16; 19:20; 20:2,3,10; (Isa 27:1) Eze 28:12-13,15,17-19; Dan 7:7-28; 8:23-25; 9:27; 11:16,36-38; Zech 1:19; 2 Thess 2:3-4;

1st Beast – 7 heads, 10 horns, 10 crowns
Note: Rev 12:3 The Great Red Dragon, Satan, has – 7 heads, 10 horns, 7 crowns

Rev 13:8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 3:5; 13:8; 20:12,15; 21:27; 22:19; Ex 17:14; Ps 69:28; Dan 12:1; Rev 17:8; 20:12,14; Phil 4:3;

1st Beast

Book of Life

I have heard it said there are a set of books in heaven. (Hal Lindsey gives quite a good explanation of the books.) There is a book of life with the name of every person who has ever lived or will live, written down. I believe this is so, and that the names are names God has given them. The DNA could easily be the Identifier of every soul. Not a name we would recognize as our name now, but what God has named him.
There is a book of Works, which lists every deed good or bad for each person. Then there are a couple of other books mentioned by Lindsey. Then Tim LaHaye says he believes there is a ‘Lamb’s Book of Life’ Rev 21:27, which I believe is the book, ‘The Book of Life.’ When a soul determines not to accept Christ as their personal Savior their name is erased from the Book of Life. That still leaves their names in the book of works, and they are judged from that book. The Calvanists believe having your name in the book of life is the list of who God has chosen to be saved from the beginning of time. I believe, as I have said, it is the name of every person God has planned to create from the beginning of time. Each one chooses life or death. Having one’s name erased from that book is spiritual death.

Ex 17:14; And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this [for] a memorial in a book, and rehearse [it] in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.

Ps 69:28; Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.

Dan 12:1; 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.

Rev 17:8; 20:12,15; 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.

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire

Phil 4:3; And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and [with] other my fellowlabourers, whose names [are] in the book of life.

Rev 16:16; 8:1; 11:15; 16:17-21; 11:16-19; 14:14-20; 19:1-21; 20:1-15; 21:1-27; 22:1-21; 1 Cor 15:24-28; – 1st WAR, 7th Seal, 7th Trumpet, 7th Bowl, 3rd Woe (which is Christ’s return 19:17)

Rev 16:16 And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.  Isa 34; Zech 14:1,2,6,7; Joel 3:2-5,9-16;Armageddon

1st War

Isa 34;  Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it. For the indignation of the LORD [is] upon all nations, and [his] fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling [fig] from the fig tree. For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment. The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, [and] with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea. And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness. And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness. For [it is] the day of the LORD’S vengeance, [and] the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.

And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.

It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever. But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness. They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none [shall be] there, and all her princes shall be nothing. And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, [and] a court for owls. The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest. There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate. 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. And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.

Joel 3:9-16; Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I [am] strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. 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. 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.

And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that [are] with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

Haggai 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.

Haggai 2:21-22; Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.

Zech 14:4; 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.

Matt 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:

For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more [shall not] we [escape], if we turn away from him that [speaketh] from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this [word], Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God [is] a consuming fire.

ex. Josh 10:12,13; Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. [Is] not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

 

Rev 16:19 Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell.

Joel 2:1-6; Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Zech 13:8-9; 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.

Zech 14:4-7; 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. And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the light shall not be clear, [nor] dark: But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, [that] at evening time it shall be light.

Malachi  3:1; Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

2 Thess 2:8; 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:

 

Rev 16:20 Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.  Isa 40:4; Eze 38:20;

Islands, mountains – gone

Isa 40:4; Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

Eze 38:20; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that [are] upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

Rev 16:21 And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.   Isa 30:30; Eze 38:22; Joshua 10:11;

Great hailstones, 100 lbs

Men blasphemed God

Isa 30:30; And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of [his] anger, and [with] the flame of a devouring fire, [with] scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.

Eze 38:22; Hezekiah also had said, What [is] the sign that I shall go up to the house of the LORD?

Joshua 10:11; And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, [and] were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: [they were] more which died with hailstones than [they] whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.

 

Verse 10:7 says when the 7th angel sounds the ‘Mystery of God’ will be finished. Verse 15:8 says, ‘….no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues were completed..’. This has led me to believe the 6th Seal, 6th Trumpet, 6th Bowl, 1st and 2nd woes, are to occur simultaneously and back to back, while the  7th Seal, 7th Trumpet, 7th Bowl, and 3rd woe are all to occur simultaneously climaxing the finished work of God.

 

Rev 11:16 And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God.   Rev 4:4,10; 5:8,14; 11:16; 19:4;

“We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty,

The One who is and who was and who is to come,

And the time of the dead, that they should be judged,

And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints,

And those who fear Your name, small and great,

And should destroy those who destroy the earth.”  Rev 11:18; 20:12;

 

Rev 11:19 Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.  Rev 6:12; 8:5,12; 11:13,19; 16:18; 19:11; Ex 19:18; Isa 2:19,21, 13:13; 24:23; 29:6; 34:4-10; 51:6; Dan 8:10; Joel 2:10,30-32; 3:15,16; Eze 38:20,22; Haggai 2:6-7,21-22; Zech 14:4; Matt 24:29; Heb 12:25-29

Isa 34:4-10; And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling [fig] from the fig tree. For the indignation of the LORD [is] upon all nations, and [his] fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling [fig] from the fig tree. For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment. The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, [and] with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea. And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness. For [it is] the day of the LORD’S vengeance, [and] the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion. For [it is] the day of the LORD’S vengeance, [and] the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion. It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.

Isa 51:6; Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

Joel 2:10; 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:

Joel 2:30-32; And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Joel 3:15,16; The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.

Matt 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:

Heb 12:25-29; See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more [shall not] we [escape], if we turn away from him that [speaketh] from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God [is] a consuming fire.

Time to reap harvest, earth is ripe

Joel 3:13 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.

Rev 14:19 So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. Matt 13:50

 

Winepress of Wrath of God

 

Rev 14:20 And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs. Isa 63:3;

 

Blood up to horses bridles 1600 furlongs 200 miles

There will be hailstones, rain, water mixed with blood that will rise up to horses bridles.

 

Isa 63:3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people [there was] none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.

Lev 16:4; He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these [are] holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and [so] put them on.

Rev 19:15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  Rev 1:16: 2:12,16; 19:15; Isa 49:2,6,13; Eph 6:17; Heb 4:12; (See 1:16 Notes)

 

A sharp sword

Rules with a rod of iron

 

Isa 49:2; And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me;

Eph 6:17; And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Heb 4:12; For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

 

Rev 19:16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:

KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.  Jer 23:5-6;

 

King of Kings and Lord of Lords

 

Jer 23:5-6 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this [is] his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

 

Rev 19:17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,”   Rev 19:17,21; Eze 29:5; 32:4; 39:4,17;

 

Birds invited to supper of God

Maybe this is the 3rd Woe! Maybe the end of 3rd Woe

 

Eze 29:5; And I will leave thee [thrown] into the wilderness, thee and all the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the open fields; thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered: I have given thee for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of the heaven.

Eze 32:4; Then will I leave thee upon the land, I will cast thee forth upon the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the heaven to remain upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee.

Eze 39:4,17; Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that [is] with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and [to] the beasts of the field to be devoured.

And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, [even] a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

 

Rev 19:18 “that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.”  Rev 19:17,21; Eze 29:5; 32:4; 39:4,17;

 

The Beast has gathered his armies: all happens at the same time: 7th seal 8:1, 7th Trumpet 11:15, 7th Bowl 16:16; 3rd Woe 16:16; and Christ Returns:

 

Rev 19:19 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.  Eze 38:16; 39:1-20; Joel 3:2,9-17; Zeph 3:8; Zech 9; 12:3-14; 14:1-7;

 

1st WAR

1st Beast – Gathering armies

7th seal 8:1; 7th Trumpet 11:15; 7th Bowl 16:16; 3rd Woe 16:16; Christ Returns:

 

Eze 38:16; And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

Eze 39:1-20; Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I [am] against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that [is] with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and [to] the beasts of the field to be devoured. Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD. And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I [am] the LORD. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not [let them] pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I [am] the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this [is] the day whereof I have spoken. And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down [any] out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD. And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the [noses] of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call [it] The valley of Hamongog. And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, all the people of the land shall bury [them]; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD. And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. And the passengers [that] pass through the land, when [any] seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog. And also the name of the city [shall be] Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land. And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, [even] a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.

And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.

Zech 4:1-5; Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 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.

Zeph 3:8; Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination [is] to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, [even] all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

 

Chapter 19:20-21 beast captured, false prophet captured and cast alive into the lake of fire.

 

Rev 19:20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone .    Rev 9:2,11; 11:7; 12:3,9,13; 13:1; 17:3,8,16; 19:20; 20:3,10; Isa 14:15; 24:22; 30:33;   (Historically – Tophet)  Isa 34:9,10; Eze 38:22;  Rev 13:17,18; 14:9,11; 16:2; 19:20;

 

Beast, False Prophet  – Men with Mark of Beast, cast into lake of fire

 

Isa 14:15; Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

Isa 24:22; And they shall be gathered together, [as] prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

Isa 30:33; For Tophet [is] ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made [it] deep [and] large: the pile thereof [is] fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.

 

Rev 19:21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.  Rev 1:16; 2:13; 19:15,21; Isa 49:2; Eph 6:17; Heb 4:12; (Rev 19:17,21; Eze 29:5; 32:4; 39:4,17)

 

The rest killed with sword of Jesus

(birds filled with flesh)

 

Isa 49:2; And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me;

Eph 6:17; And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Heb 4:12; For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Eze 29:5; And I will leave thee [thrown] into the wilderness, thee and all the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the open fields; thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered: I have given thee for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of the heaven.

Eze 32:4; Then will I leave thee upon the land, I will cast thee forth upon the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the heaven to remain upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee.

Eze 39:4; Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that [is] with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and [to] the beasts of the field to be devoured.

Eze 39:17; And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, [even] a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

 

 

Chapter 20

Satan, the Dragon is jailed for 1000 yrs. (Note: 1000 yrs is as one day to the Lord) Satan released for a season. There seems to be no explanation, at this time, for why God would have to release Satan for a season. It might have been part of some contract or law, certainly we have not been told or at least comprehended. Satan is finally thrown into the lake of fire, forever. Gog and Magog gathered to battle and God devours them, and they are cast into the lake of fire, forever. Perhaps Gog and Magog were also the princes of the 1st war.

 

Rev 20:1 THEN I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.  Rev 3:7; Isa 22:22; 24:21-23;

 

Key to Bottomless pit

 

Isa 22:22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

Isa 24:21-23 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones [that are] on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, [as] prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

 

Rev 20:2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; Rev 9:2,11; 11:7; 12:3,9,13: 13:1; 17:3,8,16; 19:20; 20:2,3,10;

 

Dragon (Satan) bound 1000 yrs

 

Rev 20:3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.    Rev 9:2,11; 11:7; 12:3,9,13; 13:1; 17:3,8; 19:20; 20:3,10; Isa 14:9,15; Isa 38:18; Dan 7:12;

 

Dragon put in bottomless pit, shut up, sealed

1000 yrs

 

Isa 14:9; Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet [thee] at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, [even] all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

Isa 14:15Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

Isa 38:18; For the grave cannot praise thee, death can [not] celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

Dan 7:12; As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

 

Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.  Rev 16:2; 19:20; 20:4,12,13,15; Isa 9:7; 35:4; 54:17; 60:14; 65:19; 66:13; Eze 9:4; 36:28; 47:9-10,12; Zech 8:3 14:9; Matt 25:32; Lk 1:32; John 12:31; 1 Cor 11:32; 2 Cor 5:10; 1:2,9; 6:9; 19:13; 20:4; Gen 49:11-12; Isa 40:8; John 1:1;

 

1000 yrs

End of 1st WAR

1000 yr Reign of Christ Begins

those Souls who did not receive mark of beast lived and reigned with Christ 1000 yrs

Note: ‘they sat on them,’  meaning the  24 elders of verse 19:4;

Thus the reason for assuming the disciples and the 12 tribes of Israel represent the 24 elders. Which I still contend no one knows who the 24 elders are.

 

Isa 9:7; 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.

Isa 35:4; Say to them [that are] of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come [with] vengeance, [even] God [with] a recompence; he will come and save you.

Isa 54:17; No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This [is] the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness [is] of me, saith the LORD.

Isa 60:14; The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

Isa 65:19; And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

Isa 66:13; As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

Eze 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.

Eze 36:28; And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Zech 8:3; Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.

Zech 14:9; And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

Matt 25:32; And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his] sheep from the goats:

Lk 1:32; 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:

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

1 Cor 11:32; But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

2 Cor 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.

 

Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

 

1000 yrs – 1st Resurrectiondead did not live again

 

Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.  Rev 1:6; 5:10; 20:6; Ex 19:6; Isa 61:6; Eze 36:24-28; Dan 7:27; 1 Pet 2:5,9-10;

 

First Resurrection – Blessed and Holy, Priests of God, 1000 yrs

THE CHURCH – ALL WHO BELIEVE IN CHRIST

 

Ex 19:6; “and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the people of Israel.”

Isa 61:6; but you shall be called the priests of the Lord; they shall speak of you as the ministers of our God; you shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory you shall boast.

Eze 36:24-28; “I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land.” “I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you.” “And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” “And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.” “You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.”

Dan 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.

1 Pet 2:5, 9-10; you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

 

The Second War – Gog and Magog – appears to be the same enemy as in Armageddon

 

Rev 20:7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison

 

1000 yrs over, Satan released

2nd WAR

 

Rev 20:8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.  Eze 38:14-22; 39:1-20;

 

2ND WAR

Gog and Magog = 4 corners of earth – Gathered for Battle

 

Eze 38:14-22; Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know [it]? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. Thus saith the Lord GOD; [Art] thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days [many] years that I would bring thee against them? And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, [that] my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy [and] in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that [are] upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that [are] with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

 

Eze 39:1-20; Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I [am] against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that [is] with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and [to] the beasts of the field to be devoured. Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD. And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I [am] the LORD. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not [let them] pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I [am] the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this [is] the day whereof I have spoken. And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down [any] out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD. And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the [noses] of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call [it] The valley of Hamongog. And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, all the people of the land shall bury [them]; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD. And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. And the passengers [that] pass through the land, when [any] seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog. And also the name of the city [shall be] Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land. And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, [even] a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.

And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.

 

Rev 20:9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.  Eze 38:14-19,21,22; 39:1-20;

 

Battle Ready – God sent fire from heaven, devoured Gog and Magog

 

Rev 20:10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.   Rev 17:16; 19:20; 20:2,3,10;

 

Devil cast into lake of fire – forever

 

Rev 20:11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.

 

Great White Throne

The great white throne judgment: Verse 20:12 explains it is the dead, not those who believe Christ, who will be judged here.

Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.

Chapter 21

New Heaven, New Earth, the New Jerusalem and description of ‘Heaven’, eternal life, no more crying, no more tears, river of water of life, tree of life,

 

Rev 21:1 NOW I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.  Isa 24:19-20; 61:10; 65:17; 66:22; 2 Pet 3:13;

 

New Heaven, Earth, and no more Sea

 

Isa 24:19-20; The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

Isa 61:10; I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh [himself] with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth [herself] with her jewels.

Holy City New Jerusalem

Bride adorned for husband

 

Isa 61:10; I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh [himself] with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth [herself] with her jewels.

For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD.

God is with men

2 Cor 5:1; 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.  

Exo 25:8; And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

Exo 29:46; And they shall know that I [am] the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I [am] the LORD their God.

The chariots of God [are] twenty thousand, [even] thousands of angels: the Lord [is] among them, [as in] Sinai, in the holy [place]. Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, [for] the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell [among them].

Eze 43:9; Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever.

Rev 21:4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”  Rev 7:17; 21:4; Isa 25:8;

 

No more tears, death, sorrow, crying, pain

It is done!

I am (Fountain of Water of Life)

I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End

1 Cor 15:24-28; Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. For “He has put all things under His feet.”  But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.

 

The Son Himself will be subject to Him……..God

For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD.

Rev 21:10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Heb 12:22; But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

 

Holy City Jerusalem

 

Rev 21:11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.

 

Rev 21:12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

 

12 Gates

 

Rev 21:13 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.

 

Rev 21:14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

 

12 foundations

 

Rev 21:15 And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.

 

Rev 21:16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.

 

Square city

 

Rev 21:17 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.

 

Rev 21:18 The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.

 

Rev 21:19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,

God and Lamb is the Temple

 

Rev 21:23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.  Rev 7:16; 22:5; Isa 60:19;

 

Glory of God and Lamb is the Light

 

Isa 60:19; The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

 

Rev 21:24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.

Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.

Joel 3:18; And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.

Warnings

 

Rev 22:19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the book of life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.  Rev 3:5; 13:8; 17:16; 20:12,15; 21:27; 22:19; Ex 17:14; Ps 69:28; Dan 12:1; Phil 4:3; (22:2; Gen 2:9;)  John 3:36;

 

Book of Life

Rev 22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

 

 

1 Cor 15:24-28; Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. For “He has put all things under His feet.”  But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.

 

(ESV) Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For “God has put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when it says, “all things are put in subjection,” it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him. When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that God may be all in all.

 

Dan 7:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Dan 11:33        …………Those who have insight among the people will give understanding to the many……………….

John 14:2-3; In my Father’s house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.

1 Cor 15:50-58; Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 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. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory? The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law. But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 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.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
