The 24 Elders Of Revelation

posted by PrayerWarrior

I have heard even people I trust immensely with the word of God seem to come to a conclusion that these 24 elders are redeemed human beings. However, the word of God clears this up when you put all of the talking points about these and who and what they are together. So many ignore the fact that the beasts are heavenly beings and yet they are singing right along side of those elders, the same song as the elders, that they have been redeemed but the four living creatures are clearly not humans and never have been. This to me is wrong in so many ways on so many levels.

The beasts are not redeemed from the earth by the lamb and have indeed been there for a long time as we saw that Ezekiel saw them when he had visions. The creatures also sing with the 24 elders the same song as the elders!
Ezekiel 1:5 Within it there were figures resembling four living beings. And this was their appearance: they had human form.
Ezekiel 1:18 As for their rims they were lofty and awesome, and the rims of all four of them were full of eyes round about.
Ezekiel 1:22 Now over the heads of the living beings there was something like an expanse, like the awesome gleam of crystal, spread out over their heads.
Ezekiel 10:12 Their whole body, their backs, their hands, their wings and the wheels were full of eyes all around, the wheels belonging to all four of them.

Daniel saw these also. But he describes thrones in heaven Daniel 7:9. Something else I noticed, which people seem to forget as they place their own meaning and or interpretation upon the word, that not only are redeemed humans in white but so are angels and spirits, and so is Jesus in White. So white clothing or raiment cannot be construed as saying that those in white are only the redeemed!

Revelation 4:4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones, I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads. 7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. 8 The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”

In Isaiah 6: 2 Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!”

So since these have been doing this forever crying out how Holy the Lord our God is and these thrones Daniel saw were already there before the NT and no one went to heaven before the Lord ascended back to where He came from, this to me is partial proof that these 24 elders are not human and never have been. I have more proof as well, so hang in there with me!

Now the 24 elders we can see in 1 Chronicles 24:1-19 everything David was shown about what the temple on earth should look like, was all a perfect copy of what is in heaven and has been since before time began. The 24 thrones the 24 elders here on earth, all replica’s of what heaven has. God is no respecter of men, so it makes sense there is no human being honored in heaven above any other no matter how much they did for God and in the Lord.

These 24 elders do not get redeemed as we can see in Revelation 19 they are still there and not invited to the weddings feast of the lamb. Something else you need to notice is this, the wedding feast of the lamb has finally come and this is right after the Lamb/the lion of the tribe of Judah, The Lord our God in the form of Jesus, is finally pouring out the wrath of God.

Look with me. Revelation 19:1-5 After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God! 2 For true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication; and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her.” 3 Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!”

4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Alleluia!” 5 Then a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!”
Why aren’t these supposedly redeemed 24 elders shouting with us but instead are giving their own worship and praise to the Lord? Because this is what they have done since Heaven was made, and that is what they will do for eternity.

But let’s go back to Revelation 4 and Revelation 5 and check it out a little better.

4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones, I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads.
9 Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: 11 “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”

Let’s keep going. Revelation 5:8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”

While it is these beings the 24 elders saying or singing this so are the four creatures or beasts. Those beasts have been seen by all the prophets who have seen into heaven in the past. They seem to be tied together irrevocably. Those beats have been screaming out how Holy The Lord is and when they do the 24 elders fall down and worship every time.

Now look at this set of verses and let’s see if I can’t show what the Lord made abundantly clear to me. Rev 19:6-8
6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! 7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” 8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

The 24 elders in heaven on their 24 thrones already have their white fine linen you mean to tell me they have already been rewarded, when the time of the reward of the saints is being shown here after Christ has destroyed the enemies of God? Judgment day is the last day, it is the {DAY} of the Lord which according to Zechariah 14:7 is one day only!

We will be taken up out of the way into the skies, nowhere does it ever say we are up in heaven celebrating while some of the Lord’s bride are still here being tortured maimed and killed for their witness of the Lord. Which that makes no sense if there is supposedly no Holy Spirit to convict the hearts of mankind and there is no Christians to teach the truth of the word of God, which no one can do in their own strength anyway. So pre-tribulation believers (false believers) have no understanding and show repeatedly they do not understand the word of God.

Revelation 11:16-18 And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying: “We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty, The One who is and who was and who is to come Because You have taken Your great power and reigned. 18 The nations were angry, and Your wrath has 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.”

Now read that again because I am sure you missed it, as I had done many times before the Lord showed me this particular part of the prophecy. It is time to judge the dead and reward your saints. The elders are saying this to the Lord. How is it that the 24 elders are there at all if the saints have not been rewarded yet, and the dead have not been resurrected and judged yet?

We know from 1 Thessalonians 4 13-18 that the dead are resurrected first and the saints who are left alive in the blink of an eye, are changed into perfect immortal incorruptible human beings. So in light of those scriptures that makes no sense, that these elders are dead men who have already been rewarded as we know God never does anything in separation between one human being to another. God is no respecter of men period.

In Rev 19 the 24 elders are not singing with the throngs of humans who have just been resurrected/redeemed off the earth, they have their own praise and worship they are doing. They are not with the redeemed they are still right there with God and the 4 living creatures. God does not author confusion and when one want’s to find out the truth for themselves, we do not go to men but directly to the one who is Yes and Amen, we go to the author of Life the very word who put on flesh, Jesus Christ!

I ask men and they all have a different answer, and cannot explain satisfactorily enough how and why they arrived at their notions. So I go to the Father instead. I will pray and fast until I get the answer as well of course, as studying the word of God to get the truth. God does not let anyone down not ever. When we stand before Him there will be no excuses of why we did not for ourselves, know the word of God. We have the bible everywhere and at the ready! Yet there are many who just refuse to learn the word for themselves and that is such a pity.

The truth is out there for all of us to know and learn and live in faith and learn to grow in Him. We just have to seek His face for the answers! Pray and plead for your answers then go seeking them from the word of God. Look for the verses that carry the information you are seeking and then study those verses in their proper context and you will find all the answers right there in the word. I don’t even expect people to take my word for it, I expect everyone to go and seek for themselves, the truth.

Love God, Love others!

posted by PrayerWarrior

I am astounded beyond words with how insane things are. I knew love would be called hate, I knew hate would be called love, but there is so much more to that whole story than we see.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
The Holy Spirit fills in the blanks for us. God never says more than what needs saying. His word does not mince words, it needs no more words than it has, because in order to get the rest of the story, the complete understanding of that concept, One must have the Holy Spirit living within them!

If the Holy Spirit resides inside you, you will have what is not written, in your remembrance. You will understand what is not said, forewarned is forearmed, and having understanding of the Lord, His will and ways, and the word.

Of course growth happens at all times in the Lord, we progress from tests and trials along the way, growing in understanding and perseverance, wisdom and knowledge.
I say all this because I knew this was all coming, because I love the Lord and He speaks messages to my heart in one package uploaded to my heart. It is truly a complete packet of knowledge, a real revelation of understanding that is quite mind blowing.

That is called blessing! The more of these packages you receive, the More you need, more of Him. God is so much more addicting than anything life has to offer us. In Him is Life, real loving life is found!
No matter what we go through, He is there! Holding us up, moving us, as long as we allow Him the reigns of our life, He will see us through it!

Tests are hard, but the reward is a closer walk with Him.
I don’t know about anyone else bt I myself want to serve Him with every ounce I have within and without me to give. Hot because I am doing extraordinary works, because that’s not what i am talking about. It is because I want to be pleasing to the Father. i want to be a sweet odor before His nostrils.

My life is my only thing I have to give Him, and this is exactly what He wants from us, our life! Every part of our lives is sacrificed to Him, because this is the only thing we have to give Him back for His extraordinary love.
I want to love God as much as He loves me, or die trying! I know I can never ever achieve that kind of love, but I am surely going to give it the best I’ve got.
We are to live a life of complete sacrifice of self and to self. Die each day to yourself, by picking up your cross, and deciding to die to self and live through Christ, who lives through us!

Allow Him to work in your every part of you, be His body mind, and soul. You cannot go wrong by giving Him yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet and everything in between, be His!

If you don’t live with His Presence, every moment of every day of your life, why would He then want to have His every moment near you who could not sacrifice yourself to Him, for eternity?

Sold out is what the Lord our God is looking for. All His all the time every day every night no matter what you are doing in life at work at home in the car at the store, with friends, still be His bride!

A Bride is always looking to please her man, this keeps the honeymoon faze going for pretty much two years. But we are to be the bride of the Lord, every second of every moment of every day!!! We look to please our man, and the great thing is? The husband is so appreciative of the Brides love for Him and devotion to want to please Him, He does the same thing for her.

Our relationship with the Lord goes only as deep as we make it to be. If we are aloof He will be aloof. If we are shy, He will be shy of us. If we are angry? He will be angry with us.

I will only make my relationship with the Lord deeper closer and clearer every day. I am not shy to say He is my Lord and king, I shout it practically. I want everyone everywhere to love the Lord our God, as much as He loves us.
We would see an amazing thing take place if there was revival of the fear and love and devotion to the Lord that we should have, without being told by anyone, because we should be in the word to the nth degree. Eating the word, swallowing it whole, gulps of it!

We need to live in the truth fully, or we are not His. He has two churches in the book of Revelation that He has no rebuke for5 churches He tells repent or else he will take away their part from the kingdom of God.
Of the two churches that there was no rebuke for? One of them will suffer greatly in the end times. Many will be jailed and many will be killed. One church is so deeply devoted to God that she will walk unscathed, through the tribulation, the church of Philadelphia.

I asked the Father show me Lord this church of Philadelphia, what do these people look like? How do we live this life to be protected through the tribulation? He said Psalm 91! I read it, I cried! It is not a long read, it is something that should have each word savored, and weighed carefully, for the full measure to sink in, of these amazing promises of God, to His deeply devoted Bride, who lives in the secret place of the Lord.

Man that was a run on sentence! But it needed to be said that way.

He showed me a great vision one night of those walking in His shadow, and how evil could not even see them, but the second they looked out, they took their eyes off Jesus? Evil saw them peeking out, and snatched them up, ate them up!! It was a horrifying vision, part of the worst one i have ever had.

I want to learn now how to walk in Him so deeply, that I am hidden from evil! That takes devotion to His every desire of you. Which church of the 7 in Revelation do you spiritually fit into?

Are you just barely scraping by on the fringes of a relationship with Him? Maybe you are into Him a lot, but are doing things no pure deeply living in Him child would do?
Or are you the laodicean church who says eh we are secure we know no way to lose out on God i said a prayer i’m good i have need of nothing i am rich in Him, whom He will spit out of His mouth?

Examine those churches see what they are like, and then choose the church you want to fit into spiritually, and pray to be of that church!!

Learn the word of the Lord people for yourselves. No man’s understanding is the same as yours. Our personal relationship with God is our own tailor made for us, each individual! We are all different and unique and think differently, but God reads our thoughts all the time.

God knows how to reach you so deeply so tenderly you can’t help but fall in love with Him, and be devoted to Him entirely, and walk in a security that cannot be shaken. His love surrounding you coming out of your pores, towards other people and yourself? There is no feeling on earth that can come close to touching that feeling.

We do not live by feelings But when God gives you feelings of a certain kind, man oh man it’s always earth shattering, and addicting. I MUST HAVE MORE!!

I cannot fathom how it is that people cannot, through the entire scriptures of the day of the Lord, or the day of Jesus Wrath, or the day of wrath, see what is plainly stated in the word. What it will all look like. My hope in this article is to make it clear to all of you, as it is to myself, what that day will look like. I read the word and see so clearly what the day of the Lord will be, and that it is one day only. It is His wrath that He has stored up since He last destroyed the earth and left a mere eight people to begin it over.

I have seen many claim that the wrath of God is the entire 7 years of tribulation, no sorry it is not. I have seen people state it is the last 3.5 years of the tribulation period, no it is not! People claim it is the trumpets and vials in the book of Revelation, because in Chapter 6 it states the nations were angry and your wrath has come, but it is ignored that in the trumpets and vials at the end of those two sets of “JUDGMENTS” it says it again, your wrath has come. So do they believe that God’s wrath comes three times?

Let’s look at those verses that say this very important set of words. Maybe we can glean together what He means by this all. Rev 6:16-17 They told the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17 for the great day of his wrath has come; and who is able to stand?” So what are the people of earth talking about here? And does Jesus come show His angry face to the inhabitants of the earth only to take his face back up, reclose the sky, and relight the sun and moon? But then come back at the 7th trumpet, then go back and then come back at the 7th vial? Makes no sense right?

Now look at Rev 11:18 but pay very close attention here as it adds something new. The nations were angry, and your wrath came, as did the time for the dead to be judged, and to give your bondservants the prophets, their reward, as well as to the saints, and those who fear your name, to the small and the great; and to destroy those who destroy the earth.” Wow wait a minute here say what? The dead to be judged? But isn’t that the resurrection? But isn’t that when Jesus comes back to rapture us, as people call it? The dead in Christ rise first then we which are alive and remain shall be changed in a moment in the twinkling of an eye! YES!!

I need also to point out something here. The pre tribulation people as well as the pre wrath crowd ignore the fact that Jesus and Paul said at the last trump he comes. Clearly here at the last trumpet Jesus comes, He raises the dead and judges them. So to say that the trumpets are God’s wrath, is way off base. As well the pre tribbers claim the 7th or last trumpet is going to occur at the feast of trumpets. Hmmmm so I guess God maybe had better go speak to these men and get His story right, they seem to know better than He does, what His word means!

Now look at Revelation 15:1 some say God’s wrath is completed, some say finished King James says it right on this verse. And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. So His wrath is not done, not over with, but filled up. The Holy Spirit says to my heart that what this means is His wrath has come to it’s boiling over point. Jesus comes in wrath, not before the wrath of God is filled up, but when it has come to it’s fullness, then it boils over. That my friends is Armageddon, that occurs in the valley of Megidoo. That is where the sword that comes out of the mouth of Jesus is used to fillet men where they stand.

I know this can be quite confusing! As I was writing this I was sitting here going, oh but wait Lord, am I getting this wrong? But He said to my heart read on child, and I will give you understanding. It speaks of the wrath being poured out of the bowls or vials depending on the version you read, but then it says that these are plagues, and as you read other verses in the bible of what the great and terrible day of the Lord will look like, then you can fully appreciate that indeed these are plagues, and or judgment, not His wrath poured out. The judgments are Gods anger for sure, but not the completion of His wrath.

These plagues are meant to make men realize that God is God and to repent, but a couple verses of chptr 16 shows men repented not of their sin. Verses 9 and 11 speak of the men blaspheming God and not repenting of their deeds. After God has the angel pour out the 7th vial He then pours out wrath on Great Babylon who has had the whole earth drink from her cup of fornication. Look at verse 15 of chapter 16 of Revelation. This verse here the Lord pretty nearly smacked me in the face with it LOL. He said now see this here, and realize you are all still there on earth.

15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. So He (Jesus) has not come as of yet. We are told a few times he comes as a thief, and those who think he has come as a thief silently, secretly, are sadly deeply mistaken. Because how many times does He come like a thief only to come as a thief again? It does not mean in secret nor in silence, it means unanounced before hand. A thief does not tell when he will rob a house, or you would be ready for him, and his task would be foiled. Jesus says I come when no man knows the day or the hour. I come without advance warning. I come when you least expect me.

The Lord in Revelation chapter one no less, says every eye shall see His coming. We are going to hear it as well. There is the Angel in the heavens shouting, there is the 7th trumpet, there is the ripping away of the sky or the heavens that rolls up like a scroll. That dear friends, is going to sound like something you never imagined you would ever hear. Then we see Him in His anger for those evil doers who repent not of their deeds. We all of us will not be able to stand under the onslaught of His anger and wrath that He appears with. Only when we have become changed in that blink of an eye will we then be taken up to meet him and those who had been reunited with their bodies in the heavenlies.

As I was praying this morning over this article, that I began a week ago, The Lord hit me with such a revelation as to almost knock me off my feet with it. I actually let out a little scream of wonder at it, and marveled that no one has ever thought of this before. My goodness it is so clear! But I will make you all wait as I show what it will look like, the day of God’s wrath, and then when we ask what it wont look like, is the spot that God slapped this amazing revelation on me. God my friends and family, and strangers alike, is so amazingly awesome. He gives us what we need when we need it and understanding when we seek to know it, flows into us. Sometimes that Revelation is a calmly placed word, sometimes it has the power to knock you off your feet. But always it is a blessing.

Now let’s look at these verses, no one ever seems to look at, as to what God’s fury and wrath will look like. “For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Rev. 6: 17.) Okay this one the pre wrath rapture team speaks of as God’s wrath coming, and though they are partially right they are also wrong due to the fact that they believe that the trumpets and vials are God’s wrath because of that entire verse. Because it says now His great wrath has come, they say oh okay so the trumpets and vials are the wrath, because they come after this. But truly it is not that, and my hope is to show in another piece to this with this new revelation, how we know that they are not separate, and they do not occur chronologically.

But look who can stand in the day of His wrath is my point here. No one will be able to stand in the day of the onslaught of His anger, His very wrath. “The wicked are overthrown. and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand” (Prov. 12:7) So when we see this particular phrase used in the bible before, he was then he was not for the Lord took him away, Gen 5:24. That was speaking of Enoch. We know when the word speaks of he was not, it means their gone. in this case however God did not take them to be in heaven with Him, He kills them. I will show this clearly as we move along.

Now look here again in Revelation at the last trumpet His wrath is mentioned again. “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants, the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy (corrupt) the earth” (Rev. 11:18).So hmmm now the wrath is coming again? After the supposed wrath of the 7 trumpets His wrath comes again in the form of the vials? Or could it be another description of the judgments of God? Or is it just a deeper description from the seals?

In Revelation 15 we see the 7 angels being handed the 7 last PLAGUES, and it says something here that always caught my attention once I stopped believing the fairy tale of a pre-tribulation rapture. In verse one alone, is where I received a great understanding that the vials are not the wrath of God, as people think they are. But that with the pouring out of these vials, the wrath of God would come to it’s completeness. Like the straw that broke the camels back so to speak. He has poured out judgment after judgment upon the men of earth, and rather than realizing He is there, which they have no way of denying He exists at this point, instead of coming to Him and repenting, they are actually now openly blaspheming Him. Thus Now His wrath, with these last seven plagues comes to it’s fullness He is ready to explode. As with all past prophecies John’s is no different, they move forward and back and then forward and back, to complete a picture.

15:1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete. Also the word here for wrath is not Orge but instead Thymos. There is a distinction between the word Thymos and Orge. Orge is wrath fully and completely wrath, but Thymos is anger. The translators played a game with words too often to even count, and therefore have made it hard to make a distinction between words unless you do a Greek study of it. Like the word church was never used, that word is Ekklesia which means chosen or elect of God. It was used to describe the Israelites in the OT, and is supposed to be used in the New Testament, at least this is what a study I did one day has shown me. I love words and word studies is one of the things I do best.

Now I want to go to the old testament and do a nice search there of what God’s wrath looked like to those who were given visions of it. “At his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation” (Jer. 10:10). I am getting a clear picture here myself with also Jesus words in Matthew 24:29-31 He describes everything that is in seal 6 trumpet 7 and vial 7. I personally see, and am quite sure, that the half hour of silence at seal 7, is the rapture, the taking up of the saints. “Who shall stand when he appeareth?” (Mal. 3:2).

“The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? His fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies” (Nah. 1:5-8). Now we’re getting somewhere. Hmmm great melting heat I have seen a few people say that God uses a nuke LOL. What need has God of a man made weapon of mass destruction, when a word spoken is enough to destroy everything He ever created? People try so hard to ascribe manly characteristics to God, but God is so much bigger than mankind. He is so much more than we can even come close to understanding.

Job as well knew about the day of wrath coming and this is what he said. “that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!” (Job 14:13). 2 Before the decree is issued, Or the day passes like chaff, Before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you, Before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you! 3 Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.(Zeph 2:2-3). We can clearly see no one wants to be in the DAY OF THE LORDS WRATH!

Zeph 1:14-15,18 “The great day of the Lord is near–near and coming quickly. Listen! The cry on the day of the Lord will be bitter… That day will be a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish… In the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth.” Isa 66:15-16 “See, the Lord is coming with fire, and his chariots are like a whirlwind; he will bring down his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For with fire and with his sword the Lord will execute judgment upon all men, and many will be those slain by the Lord… Ps 69:24 Pour out your wrath on them, let your fierce anger overtake them. Ps 76:10 Surely your wrath against men brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.

Ah so here we see there will be survivors. Totally different article, but the point needs to be made, there are suvivors the world over after the wrath is poured out. Those who did not take the mark, and those who did not come to the valley of Megiddo to fight against the Lord in the final battle, the one called Armageddon. That is when Jesus comes and executes the wrath of God. It is also called by the apostle Paul the day of Christ. Why would Paul say this? Because Jesus is God was God and is coming to execute the wrath of God. He comes with flames and anger, and with His sword, with which He will fillet men where they stand with just the words out of His mouth. Paul speaks of it being Jesus in many places, I will simply put them down without writing them all out. Please go study them on your own. I may put them in here later we shall see how the Lord takes this and moves it. 1 Corinthians 1.8, 3.13, 5.5; 2 Corinthians 1.14; Philippians 1.6, 10, 2.16; 2 Timothy 1.18, 4.8.

Many people do not understand what the goat and sheep judgement is. It is the survivors, those on earth who for some reason, did not take the mark of the beast and survived all the evil turmoil upon the earth, in those times. All people left alive on the earth who did not come to the battle of Armageddon, will then come to Jerusalem and be judged. Some will be thrown into hell and some will come into the kingdom to live with the Lord, and we who are immortal human beings, who are kings and priests, over some of these very people at this judgment of Christ. For some reason people just cannot wrap their head around there being people alive after the fiery judgment at the battle of Armageddon, or the day of the Lord, or the day of His wrath. But there are!

They say it makes no sense at all, how can anyone survive fire brought upon the earth. But isn’t the God of the bible, the Only God there is, Isn’t He big enough fortuitous enough, to send that fire where He wills and to protect those whom He wants to protect? People make God so small, they box Him in to their own idea of who He is. God does not fit in your boxes. He is who He is, rather you accept Him for the truth of who He is, or not. God is just huge and who can truly know Him? Through out our studies of His word we get glimpses of who He is and how large He is, but never will we know fully who He is! He is so multifaceted that even a diamond and all it’s facets cannot compare to how magnificent the Lord our God is. The depths and lengths of Him and the Love will never truly be plumbed. That dear friends is exactly as He likes it.

Moving forward! In Isaiah 13:6-13 we see, Wail, for the day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore all hands will be limp, every man’s heart will melt, and they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them; they will be in pain as a woman in childbirth; they will be amazed at one another; their faces will be like flames. Behold, the day of the Lord comes, cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and He will destroy its sinners from it. For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be darkened in its going forth, and the moon will not cause its light to shine. “I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man more than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.”

Let’s look together at Zechariah chapter 14. this is such a huge revelation at the plans on that DAY! The whole of this chapter describes this one day event in great detail. So forgive me for the space this will take but it must be written out completely to get this divine revelation of that day. 14 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. 2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle.

Look too, the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. So here we see there are a remnant alive, and these will not be cut off from the city. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus the Lord my God will come, and all the saints with You.

The saints with Him, so we have been taken up, as He revealed Himself in the heavens the angel shouts, reap for the earth is ripe for reaping, Rev 14 then He sends out, just like he said, in Matthew 24 His angels to gather together from the four corners of the earth and heavens, His own. First the dead in Christ, get reunited with their bodies, then we which are alive and remain, get taken up by the angels, after which we have been changed in the blink of an eye, from mortals to incorruptible immortals. Per 1 Cor 15:51-52. Carrying on in Zechariah, verse 6 It shall come to pass in that day that there will be no light; the lights will diminish. 7 It shall be one day which is known to the Lord—Neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light. Look at that one day only yet people all the time trick themselves into believing the day of the Lord is a 3.5 year period, and or a 7 year period. It is clear what the Lord is saying here ONE DAY!

The next few verses I will skip over, due to the fact that these are what is going on in the Millennial kingdom. Now onto verses 12 to 15. 12 And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths. 13 It shall come to pass in that day that a great panic from the Lord will be among them. Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor, and raise his hand against his neighbor’s hand; 14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem. and the wealth of all the surrounding nations Shall be gathered together: Gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance. 15 Such also shall be the plague on the horse and the mule, on the camel and the donkey, and on all the cattle that will be in those camps. So shall this plague be.

This my family in the Lord, is what the Lord’s wrath looks like! This is all consuming fire. This is men being filleted by the double edged sword that proceeds out of the mouth of Jesus. This is the Word of God! This is the Lord executing His own Wrath! Let’s see what it looks like elsewhere in the New testament we see in Revelation chapter 14 again, v20 And the wine press was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs. this is Jesus treading the wine press. Let’s look also at Isaiah 63 verses 1-6.

Isaiah 63 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 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. 4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. 5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me. 6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

The Lord Himself says He Himself will tread the wine press, no on else He Himself, no angel no Human will help Him He will do this alone. One day and only one day! Isaiah 34 v 8 also says 8 For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion. 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. I am just trying to make clear to you all, that the Lord Himself is the one who pours out wrath. The one who does all of the day of the Lord, alone. Now when doing all of this and praying, I asked the Lord so what does your day of vengeance look like? He said why don’t you ask me what it does not look like.

The tribulation is not God’s wrath! Let me help you to see something that is just so clear to be seen, but so many misunderstand. Angels do not pour out God’s wrath. Jesus does! But in Revelation while we see Jesus opening the seals, The angels are given the trumpets and the vials. While it says in triplicate that your wrath has come, you have to really study to get that understanding The seals are Jesus introduction to the judgment, the trumpets have always been warning, and the vial is the consummation of the judgment, or the completion. Wrath is so much more scary than the judgments, because it is going to be seen across the whole world at one time!

It is time to look at Revelation chapter 16 and see His the great day of the Lord mentioned. Look at 16:1 from the Waymouth bible calls it judgment not wrath. Also other translations say judgments, some say anger. As I said earlier anger is not wrath in Greek they are two different words Thymos and Orge. But I am specifically looking for the wrath coming in these verses of chptr 16. Verse 7 has the angel telling the Lord these judgments are right.7 And I heard another from the altar saying, “Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.” So the angels who pour out these vials know it is God’s anger. Verse 9 also calls these plagues. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.

Look at verse 14 we need to see something here, it is mentioned the great day of the Lord. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that (great day of God Almighty). 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. Again here is Jesus saying He comes as a thief. He says in Rev 3:3 Rev 16:15 and then all over the NT we see Christ saying watch I come quickly and the disciples telling us he comes as a thief. If he came as a thief already then why would He say at the second to the last vial being poured out, I come as a thief? Now at the 7th vial we see the angel saying it is done! The angels job is done. But look here comes the wrath.

In verse 14 of chp 16 we see that the vial is poured out to dry up the river Euphrates so that the way of the kings from the east for the great battle, the day of God Almighty. This is the only mention of the day of the Lord in these sets of verses but read for yourselves and see the angels themselves over and over again call these judgments, not His wrath. They also call them plagues. So honestly it is a case of mistaken words used for anger rather than wrath. In Chapter 15 also it goes back and forth between plagues judgments and wrath.

This is what the Lord said to me when I was praying, Father show me what your wrath looks like in the word? After pouring out the verses into my heart that I have read over the years, and bringing them to my remembrance, He then spoke to me and said, ask me what my wrath does not look like! I said yeah Lord what doesn’t it look like? He said it does not look like angels pouring it out, which they are doing with the judgments. I the Lord will have My vengeance Myself! I will repay. Romans 12:19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord. But the wrath of God is not scary for us who are His own. God’s wrath is a reaction. It is a reaction to everything that contradicts His good, loving and just character.

God’s wrath is an expression of His love. God is love, so when He acts wrathfully, He acts in accordance with His loving nature. The wrath of God is His love in action. This is why you never need fear His wrath. 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. By this time we will be that perfect blemish free, wrinkle free bride, that God will give to His son. We will have been through so much turmoil tribulation and trial that we will have been tried by the fire and not found wanting. In 1 Peter 4:1 For as much then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; We will have suffered enough that we are made perfect by it. Hallelujah!

Also I want to help you see something quite amazing. The Lord sits as a refiner of silver in the OT it says this. The refiner of silver and gold knows his metal is ready because he sees his own reflection looking back at him. The Lord when He looks upon this earth and sees His own reflection looking back at Him then, will end it all. It speaks of this in Zechariah and Malachi. Isaiah and Daniel speak of trying us in the furnace of affliction, we are to be tried by fire people. We need to have the dross and the worthless unfruitful things drawn off the top, that much heat or pressure brings out of us. The tribulation is to try men and see how much they will take in this life, to have eternity with the Lord. He reads hearts and knows us better than we know ourselves. Tribulation shows us who we are and how abiding our love is of the Lord and how enduring it is. He wants bought up sold out people for eternity. Those who love Him above anyone or anything, even their own lives.

whoever loves their life will lose it and whoever loses their life will find it, Matt 10:39. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matt 10:22, Matt 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Time and again we see this admonition, that whoever endures till the end, the same shall be saved. He is coming and His reward is with Him and we are truly redeemed when He comes back. He knows who is staying with Him and who is not going to. Are you one who will remain in Him no matter what occurs? No matter how much you must suffer? No people this is not gloom and doom this is hope. What can we not achieve being in Christ? We can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us, Phil 4.

What I find so heartbreaking is that so many cannot fathom suffering for this wonderful eternal bliss that is offered us. They cannot fathom let alone prepare themselves for the hell that is coming upon this earth, from satan and his minions, who will be as in the days of Noah, walking among us. People do not read nor prepare for what is coming. They fool themselves with this fake good news that Christ is coming for them before any of the evil is completely let loose upon this earth. It does not for them, have an ounce of reality in it. When they are standing in it, they’re going to be so frozen with dread and fear they will be immobilized and will be so shocked they will just go with the flow. This is why I say oh yes it is a salvation iussue. Pre tribulation rapture when it does not occur, and have no doubts, it is not happening like that, the word is very clear on this score, people will actually accuse God of lying to them.

There is already a huge apostasy happening, all over the place and it is getting easier and easier to see. But there is an even greater apostasy coming and even the luke warm will completely walk away, as will some of the mediocre crowd, and even some who are quite on fire for the Lord will walk away. Those who do not walk in the Holy Spirit will be walking away. This time is not a time for men alone to stand, it will only be the Lord who holds us up under the onsluaght of satans wrath. The only way that happens is for one to be walking completely in the Lord’s Holy Spirit. We are they who are now preparing in every way. Physically spiritually and mentally to stand up under it. Especially spiritually. We speak truth know truth and diligently seek truth. We accept that we do not have all the answers, and we turn deeper into the Lord, for the truths that even hurt to be spoken to us, and to each other.

Do not be fooled truth most often hurts. Being chastened and pruned, and dead ends cut off always hurts. The Lord warns us of this clearly. He disciplines those He loves. He chastens His own. He builds us and molds us and makes us more and more into the image of His son, and that is not pretty. It is hard and rough and most often we cry out Lord how much more can I take? And He says calmly I am right here as much as I do to you, I do for you. As much as I do for you, I also hold you up and fortify you, all things are possible through Christ! So we stay in Him. We stay connected to the vine and we are not cut off but held up and fortified. In our weakness He is strong. So we can do it we surely can do it, through Him and through Him alone can we live through all that is coming. Believing fables will surely get you killed in the end.

In Closing I want you all to understand what we see when we see God’s wrath being poured out from Christ, it does not look like plagues which seals trumpets and vials are, it is fiery and a blood bath the likes of which no one anywhere can even imagine. Men will be consumed where they stand their bodies will melt they will look at each other and marvel as they watch each other disintegrate. The Lord Himself pours out the wrath. Through out the word we see again and again He says I will repay. I take my vengeance. We are told not to have vengeance that the Lord will more than make up for all our suffering by evil men. I hope this helps people to see the truth of the matter. Wrath is poured out by Christ plagues and judgments are given by the Lord to the angels to pour out.

I have been working on this for three months. Every time I read something, another verse or set of verses, came to mind. Every time I read what anyone else has written about this subject, more verses were shown. This study I have found, could really go on forever. I seriously could write a book about this subject. So I have had to cut all I have found down to the most pertinent meaningful verses. I pray that you who reads will receive this with an open heart, to receive truth, as the Lord gave it to me.

Many people argue over the remnant, which will repopulate the millennial kingdom, where it states that the numbers of people in that time, or at the end of it, is numbered more than the sands of the sea! Say what? That is an astronomical number. Anyhow let me back up and say, there are arguments from every camp on who it is that will repopulate the earth. The pre tribulation believers say, it has to be a pre tribulation rapture, because there will not be anyone left who will be alive to populate the earth when Christ comes for Armageddon. I beg to differ! They also say if it was a post tribulation rapture, all the Christians will have been taken up in the rapture so who is left that is human?

The Post tribulation believers have long since had a hard time answering this question. So I set out to prove what the Lord shows in His word is the truth about this. Revelation 12 speaks of some from Israel being protected in the wilderness for the 1260 days of the tribulation. Or as Daniel says, a time times and a half time, as it says the same thing later on in Revelation. The book of Isaiah speaks of the millennial reign and the people who are the remnant that God put’s aside. As do some parts of Joel, Zechariah, Matthew, Isaiah, Zephaniah, Micah, Ezekiel, and Romans as well as many other verses through out the word!

The word says He will gather together after Armageddon, all the peoples from all the nations to Israel. Well those nations that still exist. We know one nation will not exist and I do believe that is America. The Mystery Babylon spoken of in Revelation that is utterly destroyed and also in the book of Jeremiah, chapters 50, and 51! There are going to be those who have not taken the mark. There are those who will survive yes even all of the hell upon this earth. Anarchists are some I believe will refuse to capitulate to being owned and or ruled in such a way. Also we have groups of non Christians who are involved in militias, who will be working hard against the beast system. There is no whole answer put together in the word. It takes a whole lot of study on the subject.

So let’s take a look at chapter 12 of Revelation. Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. 3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. I cannot understand how it is that people do not see here that those who are brought into the wilderness are not believing Israel. The rest of her offspring are we who believe in Christ as Messiah. We have been adopted as joint heirs with believing Israel.

So the woman who birthed the Messiah is Israel. There are those in Israel who do not believe that Jesus is the messiah, these are they which will be protected in the wilderness. Now look how in chapter 12 verses 13-17 it speaks of the woman being flown into the place of her hiding and protection for that time times and a half time. He (satan) sends a flood from his mouth to carry off the woman (Israel). Some people say the flood out of his mouth is an army; I am not concerned with that right now. What I want you to look at here though is verse 17. So many do not see the distinction made here. The dragon was enraged at the woman and went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Why if they who are going into the wilderness, are believers, does it not say so? Why would there be a distinct sentence added, that says a specific thing? Because a distinction has to be made here!

That is Messianic Jews, as well as Gentiles, who are now grafted into the tree. But the woman is unbelieving Israel, she does not have the testimony of Jesus Christ. That seems to be where so many get confused. Now let’s really get down and dirty here, let’s get our hands deep into it. Let us figure this out together. There are those who are gentiles as well, who do not believe in Jesus Christ, they are waiting to see with their own eyes the Lord. I believe they as well as unbelieving Israel will be those who repopulate the earth during the millennium. We already know that we who have been taken up to meet Jesus in the sky, along with our resurrected relatives, will be immortal and therefore cannot make babies.

Let us go back though to Matthew 24, verses that speak of the whole world mourning at the sight of Jesus. Matt 24: 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. They will mourn, those who did not believe that Jesus was and is Messiah. Look at what Isaiah says of those mourners.

Isaiah 61:1-11 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, 3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” 4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, And they shall repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations.

5 Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, And the sons of the foreigner Shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. 6 But you shall be named the priests of the Lord, They shall call you the servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast. 7 Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs. 8 “For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, and will make with them an everlasting covenant.

9 Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people. All who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.” 10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

Also in chapters 60-62 these whole chapters speaks of the time of the Millennium. 63 goes back in time to the day of God’s wrath. I love how the Lord made it (the word) go back and forth, forward and backward, so only the truly discerning (those with the Holy Spirit) can unravel and figure it out! But read this and see that the Lord is going to turn their ashes into beauty. I am thinking these and others in the world that did not go to the battle of Armageddon will live on after the day of the Lord, and will be brought through to the millennial kingdom. These will be they which repopulate the earth. Look at the judgment Jesus does in Matthew 25

Matthew 25:31-33 31. “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. The sheep and the goats are those who went through the tribulation and are still in human form. They are left on earth at the end of the age. They have not been plucked up in the end time harvest of the wicked. Neither have they been glorified with the redeemed in the resurrection/rapture. And so they await a final “sorting out” by the Returning Messiah. This sorting out is the sheep goat judgment. In this judgment Messiah determines which unsaved non wicked Mortals left at the end of this age, are given entry into the millennial kingdom.

What gives me reason to believe this, is simple. The Lord has blinded the Jews until the times of the gentiles be fulfilled. If it was He blinding them on purpose, a certain number of them, then why would He not make provision for a way for them to come back to Him? Time and again the Lord has allowed Israel to be broken up and spread to all different parts of the world, but has always provided a way for them to come back. I honestly believe this is why, even though Jesus comes back and takes His bride up in the sky; there will be those who are left alive. Otherwise not one form of answer to these questions can make a lick of sense. There has always been a remnant, time and again the bible shows, the Lord put aside some to bring back to Israel!

There is no pre tribulation rapture it cannot be proven in the word. There is not one spot in the entire bible that makes anyone, except people who need to believe this lie of satan, believe that Jesus said He is coming back twice or three or four times. There are two count them two comings of the Lord to this earth. One was to bring us back to a relationship with the Lord, He came as our redeemer, and the second time as the Lord of Lords and the reigning King of kings. But let us go on and continue so that hopefully we can see clearly the answer. I have so many verses to put up about the peoples of the Millennium; I barely know where to begin. I have been studying for weeks now and trying to figure it all out to make a clear and concise answer. I found so many many many verses pertaining to this people, that I can scarcely write them all down. So I will pick a few from the vast number.

“And it will come about that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you that you may become a blessing” (Zechariah 8:13). “ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you'” (Zechariah 8:23). Ezekiel 36:10-11 10 ‘I will multiply men on you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities will be inhabited and the waste places will be rebuilt. 11 ‘I will multiply on you man and beast; and they will increase and be fruitful; and I will cause you to be inhabited as you were formerly and will treat you better than at the first. Thus you will know that I am the Lord. You see God made promises to Abraham Isaac and Jacob that have yet to be fulfilled.

We gentiles were given promises as well that we will live and reign as kings and priests with the Lord. “Then the sovereignty, the dominion, and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him” (Daniel 7:27). In the New Testament, Paul repeated the same promise in the simplest of terms: “If we endure, we shall also reign with Him” (2 Timothy 2:12). Jesus affirmed the promise in His letter to the church at Thyatira when He wrote: “And he who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron…” (Revelation 2:26-27).

John in the throne room in his vision, or visit to the heavens, heard this promise to the Saints! “And Thou has made them [the Redeemed] to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth” (Revelation 5:10). This promise to the Church of worldwide dominion is going to be fulfilled during the Millennium. That is what Jesus was referring to in the Sermon on the Mount when He said, “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5). We surely do not as of yet reign supreme over the earth. We are the minority now a days and going to be even more scarce before all is said and done.

Jesus will reign as king of the world from Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. Here are a few verses to explain this concept. Isaiah 24:23 Then the moon will be abashed and the sun ashamed, For the Lord of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and His glory will be before His elders. Zechariah 14:9 And the Lord will be king over all the earth; in that day the Lord will be the only one, and His name the only one. The Redeemed, in their glorified bodies, will help Him with His reign by serving worldwide as administrators, judges, and spiritual tutors to those who enter the kingdom in the flesh — and to their children. Daniel 7:18 ‘But the saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, for all ages to come. ’Daniel 7:27 ‘Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.’ Jeremiah 3:15 “Then I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding.

And one more set of verses. Jesus was speaking about the parable of the Money usage in Luke 19:11-17 11 While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately. 12 So He said, “A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return.13 “And he called ten of his slaves, and gave them ten minas and said to them, ‘Do business with this until I come back.’ 14 “But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’ 15 “When he returned, after receiving the kingdom, he ordered that these slaves, to whom he had given the money, be called to him so that he might know what business they had done. 16 “The first appeared, saying, ‘Master, your mina has made ten minas more.’17 “And he said to him, ‘Well done, good slave, because you have been faithful in a very little thing, you are to be in authority over ten cities.’

Let’s not forget God’s promises to the nations of a world full of peace. God has promised to give Mankind and the earth a rest from its wars. But that peace will not come until the Prince of Peace returns. Only then will the nations “hammer their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks.” Only then will we realize the dream of a world where “nation will not lift up sword against nation, and never again will they learn war” (Isaiah 2:4). All of these promises and the ones I will show you, have not come to pass yet.

In Romans 8 Paul says something quite interesting about the creation itself. Romans 8:18-23 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. 23 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.

A little off topic here but consider the words of Paul here for a few minutes. The people of the world at large, keeps saying, what on earth is going on with our world? I will tell you something, The Lord created the earth good and perfect. It was not made to house the sin and the evil that it now houses. The Lord says the blood of innocents cries out day and night from the ground. In Genesis 4 you can read how Abels blood cried out but look in Jeremiah and Ezekiel about the blood of innocents! This partially explains why the earth groans and waits for it’s redemption, as well as we His children!

Jer_2:34 Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these. Jer_7:6 If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: Jer_19:4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents; Jer_22:3 Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place. Jer_22:17 But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it. Jer_26:15 But know ye for certain, that if ye put me to death, ye shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves, and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof: for of a truth the LORD hath sent me unto you to speak all these words in your ears.

Eze_9:9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not. Eze_22:3 Then say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD, The city sheddeth blood in the midst of it, that her time may come, and maketh idols against herself to defile herself. Note: that her time may come, this means, because of innocent blood shed, this stands out as a big reason for the lords time of Judgment. Eze_22:4 Thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed; and hast defiled thyself in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and art come even unto thy years: therefore have I made thee a reproach unto the heathen, and a mocking to all countries.

Eze_22:27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. Eze_23:37 That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them. Eze_36:18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:

Back to reasons for the Lord our God to make a millennium. God promised Jesus His Glory would be seen all over the world. Isaiah 66:18–19 18“For I know their works and their thoughts; the time is coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My glory. 19 “I will set a sign among them and will send survivors from them to the nations: Tarshish, Put, Lud, Meshech, Tubal and 3Javan, to the distant coastlands that have neither heard My fame nor seen My glory. And they will declare My glory among the nations. We know Jesus stayed in Israel through out His time on earth, so this has not been fulfilled as of yet! Also notice the Lord speaking of survivors? There are clues from start to finish in the word. All one must do is read the word as a whole,, to see everything in the word works together to make a perfect and complete picture.

Getting back to the work at hand, look at 2 Thessalonians 1:7–10, 7 and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, 8 dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9 These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed.

Though it may seem to be a fairly rare subject, the idea of a remnant is found 540 times in the Bible! Most of the time, the remnant concept is disguised by the way the words are translated into English. In the Old Testament, remnant is translated by six Hebrew root words, each of which has the underlying meaning of “what is left,” “what remains,” “survivors,” “escapees,” or “the rest.” The one Greek root used in the New Testament and in the Septuagint has the same meaning.

The biblical writers mention at least six different remnants. 1) Survivors of any catastrophe (e.g., Lot survived Sodom). 2) A group of non-Israelite survivors (e.g., “the remnant of Edom,” Amos 9:12). 3) Israelite survivors of the Assyrian invasion in 721-718 BC. 4) Jewish survivors of the Babylonian invasion in 585 BC .5) The remnant of Jews who returned to Judah from Babylon. 6) The remainder of physical Israelites and Jews after the Great Tribulation.

There are many scriptures that speak to us about the mourning of the people upon seeing Jesus. Now Jesus is very forgiving and I am sure that upon seeing Him these people are going to fall flat on their faces in repentance, and with great mourning. The Jews are going to be ripping their clothes and pouring dirt on their heads in mourning, so great will be their pain. We are told they will mourn Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Matthew 24:30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.

Also in Zechariah 12:10-14 10 “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. 11 In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. 12 And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; 13 the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves; 14 all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves.

This is clearly speaking of the Israelites mourning big time. I do not know why it is that people actually argue with the bible. It is clear there has always been a remnant that the Lord kept and brought back to Himself. Just as He told Hosea to go take a whore for wife, and made him to love her with an unending love. Each time she strayed away from him, he went and gathered her back home. This shows the mercy and the Love God has for His people the apple of His eye Israel. Time and again Israel has come back to the knowledge of God even in their foreign lands, and He brought them back, in repentance and mourning for the loss of their relationship and for their idolatry. Then He worked wonderful things in them, until again they went back to being prostitutes. Read the story of Hosea and see how God used that prophet, to show Israel His unending mercy and love and grace for the apple of His eye.

Joel 2:32 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. Acts 2:21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ Romans 11:26 and in this way all Israel will be saved. As it is written: “The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.Isaiah 4:2 In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of the survivors in Israel. Jeremiah 31:7 This is what the LORD says: “Sing with joy for Jacob; shout for the foremost of the nations. Make your praises heard, and say, ‘LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel.’

Amos 9:8 “Surely the eyes of the Sovereign LORD are on the sinful kingdom. I will destroy it from the face of the earth. Yet I will not totally destroy the descendants of Jacob,” declares the LORD. Obadiah 1:17 But on Mount Zion will be deliverance; it will be holy, and Jacob will possess his inheritance. Micah 4:7 I will make the lame my remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever. Amos 9:12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. See The Lord has in mind a remnant even still, and it is told to us through out the word.

Leviticus 26:6 “‘I will grant peace in the land, and you will lie down and no one will make you afraid. I will remove wild beasts from the land, and the sword will not pass through your country. Job 11:19 You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor. Isaiah 10:20 In that day the remnant of Israel, the survivors of Jacob, will no longer rely on him who struck them down but will truly rely on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. Jeremiah 31:33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Ezekiel 34:13 I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them into their own land. I will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the settlements in the land. Micah 4:7 I will make the lame my remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever.

I will close with these set of verses; Zephaniah 3:8-13 8 “Therefore wait for Me,” says the Lord,“Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the nations To My assembly of kingdoms,To pour on them My indignation, All My fierce anger; All the earth shall be devoured With the fire of My jealousy. 9 “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language,that they all may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him with one accord. 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers,The daughter of My dispersed ones, Shall bring My offering. 11 In that day you shall not be shamed for any of your deeds In which you transgress against Me; For then I will take away from your midst those who rejoice in your pride, and you shall no longer be haughty In My holy mountain. 12 I will leave in your midst a meek and humble people, and they shall trust in the name of the Lord. 13 The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth; For they shall feed their flocks and lie down, and no one shall make them afraid.”

In Closing I just want to say, when someone wants to stick their feet in the mud, and argue against truth, they will find ways to do it, even if it makes no logical sense what so ever. People can make the bible say anything they want it to, but when you study it altogether, then truth will stand out. It is just plain sad that so many have this watered down ear tickling garbage they call truth, but it in no way, resembles truth. The times that we are in and the times coming will show the truth to those who refuse to believe it for now. Then we will know who truly are the sheep and the goats. Or the wheat and the chaff.

I pray this helps any who have asked this. With all of the word of God I suggest you always seek the Lord in His word for the answers The Holy Spirit will never lead you wrong!
