The Wedding Supper Of The Lamb

posted by PrayerWarrior

I have known for a very long time that the wedding supper of the lamb takes place right here on earth and the Lord showed me this week so clearly, this thing happening and the sequence of events. God rocks my world on a constant basis but this was just huge. While studying about the wedding supper of the lamb in Matthew 25 here on earth, and Revelation chapter 19:7-9 also speaks briefly on it, The Lord gave another revelation to my heart.

I have been pleading for insight on the subject of who and what the 24 elders in heaven are, this happened to be thrown up before my face when I began to study on the wedding feast of the lamb. (Since the pre tribulationists think because of those 24 beings whom they believe to be people are up in heaven, that proves a pre-trib rapture, and they are not human beings.) This was shown to me, clear proof that these are not humans who have been redeemed! That however, is a different article, so watch for it!

My point though is that God answers His own. I have fasted for 21 days and been praying and pleading for people all over the place as well as been praying for insight so that I may write a book, a novel based on the book of Revelation and the last 3.5 years of satan’s reign on the earth. As I have studied the word and prayed and praised and worshiped the Father has been pouring out some amazing revelations to my heart. I have cried more tears of joy over being so blessed to have truth presented to me at every turn.

But I am rambling so let’s get going here with the article and some truth that people need to hear and read and understand. My hope is that people will not take my word for it but go study for themselves the word of God . I personally do not take any man’s word for any subject matter over the word of God and the testifying the Holy Spirit does to my heart about the word.

(Revelation 19:1-3 version AMPC) We have just been resurrected and or raptured, depending on if you’re alive or had been killed, and we see the scene in the heavens (the skies)
After this I heard what sounded like a mighty shout of a great crowd in heaven, exclaiming, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! Salvation and glory (splendor and majesty) and power (dominion and authority) [belong] to our God!
2 Because His judgments (His condemnation and punishment, His sentences of doom) are true and sound and just and upright. He has judged (convicted, pronounced sentence, and doomed) the great and notorious harlot (idolatress) who corrupted and demoralized and poisoned the earth with her lewdness and adultery (idolatry). And He has avenged (visited on her the penalty for) the blood of His servants at her hand.
3 And again they shouted, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! The smoke of her [burning] shall continue to ascend forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities).

Revelation 15:2-4
2 Then I saw what seemed to be a glassy sea blended with fire, and those who had come off victorious from the beast and from his statue and from the number corresponding to his name were standing beside the glassy sea, with harps of God in their hands.
3 And they sang the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb, saying, Mighty and marvelous are Your works, O Lord God the Omnipotent! Righteous (just) and true are Your ways, O Sovereign of the ages (King of the nations)!
4 Who shall not reverence and glorify Your name, O Lord [giving You honor and praise in worship]? For You only are holy. All the nations shall come and pay homage and adoration to You, for Your just judgments (Your righteous sentences and deeds) have been made known and displayed.
Another view of us in the heavens (skies).

Now we march on back to Revelation 19 and see that we are now hearing about the wedding supper of the lamb.
7 Let us rejoice and shout for joy [exulting and triumphant]! Let us celebrate and ascribe to Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb [at last] has come, and His bride has prepared herself.
8 She has been permitted to dress in fine (radiant) linen, dazzling and white—for the fine linen is (signifies, represents) the righteousness (the upright, just, and godly living, deeds, and conduct, and right standing with God) of the saints (God’s holy people).
9 Then [the angel] said to me, Write this down: Blessed (happy, [b]to be envied) are those who are summoned (invited, called) to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me [further], These are the true words (the genuine and exact declarations) of God.
This is a picture of victory! This had not happened before the tribulation that is not victory nobody would be celebrating overcoming and victory if they overcame nothing and did not persevere through the tribulation period. Everyone who wishes to be counted worthy of the Glory of Christ must endure and persevere through much tribulation!

2 Timothy 2:10 Therefore I [am ready to] persevere and stand my ground with patience and endure everything for the sake of the elect [God’s chosen], so that they too may obtain [the] salvation which is in Christ Jesus, with [the reward of] eternal glory.
11 The saying is sure and worthy of confidence: If we have died with Him, we shall also live with Him.
12 If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny and disown and reject Him, He will also deny and disown and reject us.
Acts 14:22 Establishing and strengthening the souls and the hearts of the disciples, urging and warning and encouraging them to stand firm in the faith, and [telling them] that it is through many hardships and tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.
Romans 8:17-18 And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory.
18 [But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us!

We can plainly see that we are due many tribulations and much suffering for His sake. Hebrews 12:6-7
6 For the Lord corrects and disciplines everyone whom He loves, and He punishes, even scourges, every son whom He accepts and welcomes to His heart and cherishes.
7 You must submit to and endure [correction] for discipline; God is dealing with you as with sons. For what son is there whom his father does not [thus] train and correct and discipline?
Revelation 3:19 Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I tell their faults and convict and convince and reprove and chasten [I discipline and instruct them]. So be enthusiastic and in earnest and burning with zeal and repent [changing your mind and attitude].

You see here with just the word, proof and plenty of it, that we will suffer or we are not worthy to have glory with Him! This is not bad news, because even in suffering He is always with us and will see us through it with joy in our hearts and peace as well.

Now onto the wedding feast according to Matthew and there is where I will explain better what the Lord is showing me, verse by verse!
Matt 25:1 Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. This is not mentioned as a parable just a likening. This becomes pretty clear when taken at face value there is a parable right after this set of verses that explain the truth to us.
Ten virgins is not peaking of people who have never had sex, this is those who have been faithful to God and have no idolatry inside them.

Matt 25:2 Five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent). These are those who truly love God but some are foolish and have accepted false teachings, by false teachers. They believe in Christ according to the bible, but do not really recognize His voice.

Matt 25:3-4 For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them; These did not think they needed any extra because they do not plan on waiting long for the bridegroom.
4 But the wise took flasks of oil along with them [also] with their lamps.
These wise were prepared to wait for the Lord as we will see explained better in the next verse.

Matt 25:5 While the bridegroom lingered and was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep. Some people who believe in God and Jesus of the bible, though they do not know His voice and cannot tell the truth because they love the lies better than the hard to handle truth, will hide away during the tribulation. They believe they won’t be here and when they find out they will be here, will then hide.

Matt 25:6 But at midnight there was a shout, Behold, the bridegroom! Go out to meet him! This is a clear picture of the shout of the arch angel at the 6th seal, 7th Trumpet and the 7th vial. Revelation 14:15 And another angel came out of the temple sanctuary, calling with a mighty voice to Him Who was sitting upon the cloud, Put in Your scythe and reap, for the hour has arrived to gather the harvest, for the earth’s crop is fully ripened.

The time will be easily recognized that the Lord will be coming because the sun will not give it’s light and the moon will be scarlet, like blood. There will be lot’s of shouts at that time. Suddenly those foolish virgins will have no choice but to recognize that was indeed the tribulation that this is indeed Christ’s return, it is now truly any moment.

They will then knowing He is coming be crying we’re not ready or prepared! Oh, now help us, and we who have prepared to stand and have been knowing all along He would not come before the trials troubles and hellish ordeals we must suffer in order to glory with Him, will basically say too late go seeking the truth for yourself we cannot teach it to you between now and the moment He steps down.

Matt 25:7-10 Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order.
8 And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.
9 But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves.
10 But while they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut.

He will come in that time and it will indeed be too late for those foolish ones. They will go seeking someone who can give them instant wisdom but it is just entirely too late for them to gain the knowledge and preparation before His arrival. So we will go in with Him to that feast here on earth in the city of Jerusalem, and He will shut the door which no man can open because He has shut it.

Matt 25:11-12
11 Later the other virgins also came and said, Lord, Lord, open [the door] to us!
12 But He replied, I solemnly declare to you, I do not know you [I am not acquainted with you].

How could the Lord who knows everyone’s name in heaven on earth and in hell not know someone? Because they do not know Him in truth. So while it says there is no idolatry for those named virgins, these obviously believed a different Jesus than He who is truth. If you know the truth then you know the Lord. If you do not know the truth but love the lies your condemnation has been prepared since before the foundations of the earth were laid.

12 Thessalonians 2:10-12
10 And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing (going to perdition) because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved.
11 Therefore God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false,
12 In order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in [who refused to adhere to, trust in, and rely on] the Truth, but [instead] took pleasure in unrighteousness.

Notice the capital T in truth here? Because this is speaking of Jesus who is the Truth the Way and the Life! Lies and idolatry are unrighteousness and are deadening offenses. You will die if you lie to yourself and others. If you indeed believe and love the lies that make you feel good and not worry. It shows you have no trust in the Lord His Will and Ways. And in fact do not know Him, thus He does not know you!

Now look there is no such thing as marriage up in heaven there is no husbands and wives. Watch like Matthew 22:28-30 says when asked about who has the wife who had been married to seven different brothers watch and read carefully Jesus answer.

Matt 22:28 Now, in the resurrection, to which of the seven will she be wife? For they all had her.
29 But Jesus replied to them, You are wrong because you know neither the Scriptures nor God’s power.
30 For in the resurrected state neither do [men] marry nor are [women] given in marriage, but they are like the angels in heaven.

There is no marriage in Heaven there will be no marriage of the resurrected people who are in fact resurrected at the last day and those who had remained alive are changed in the blink of an eye and brought up into the heavens (the sky) with the Lord, so that we will always be with Him wherever He may be. This wedding feast is not a marriage like people seem to think and or believe, the marriage feast of the lamb is a victory party for having overcome the beast his mark and persevering in the Lord.

This happens in Jerusalem on earth. Let me prove out a couple more things that you can really understand that indeed there are people alive who come out to Jerusalem for their judgment. These are people who did not go to the valley of Megiddo to fight against the Lord. These are people who are alive on the earth through the tribulation and afterwards. These are the people who were hidden away during the tribulation.

There are also those who are alive that the lord Himself took and hid away and nourished Himself throughout the tribulation period. Look at Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplication; and they shall look unto me whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born.

Why would people mourn the coming of the Lord unless they did not believe on Him? Look at John 19:37 And, as another Scripture says: “They will look on the One they have pierced.” then look at Revelation 1:7 Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him–even those who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. So shall it be! Amen. They will mourn Him how does someone mourn at the coming of the Lord if they believed on Him?

So those who say that The Jews will come to truth about the Lord are wrong as well. The Jews will not be unblinded until the times of the gentiles be fulfilled. The times of the gentiles are fulfilled only once Jesus has stepped down upon the earth. Then the Jews will come to Jerusalem and He the Lord and David also will teach the Jews about Jesus and these Jews who have been alive and hidden away and cared for, (the remnant) will recreate all the peoples upon this earth thus fulfilling the promise to Abraham, “through you, the earth will be blessed and your offspring shall be more numerous than the sands of the sea”!

I do believe also the people who had not come to the battle of Armageddon those who hid themselves away and escaped somehow someway from the terrors of the a/c and satan and all his demons, will be there as well, as we see the sheep and goats judgment in Matthew 25. Some will go to hell some will be welcomed into the kingdom. But they will all be alive. We are no longer mortals but have been made immortal those who had been resurrected and those who had been raptured.

That judgment takes place after the wedding feast after everything has occurred. In conclusion it happens like this. 6th seal opened, 7th trumpet sounds, 7th vial is poured out and then seventh seal is the resurrection/rapture of the body. Wrath is poured out the moment we are removed out of the way of it, then once they are filleted where they stand we come back down out of the skies with Jesus and march victoriously right into the wedding supper, close the door and feast and party with our victorious Savior. Then He calls across the world to everyone to come to Jerusalem for judgment.

Then for 7 months people are assigned to the valley of Megiddo to pick up bones and bury them, and the weapons of war are turned into fuel for heat for 7 years worth, and the people who are alive the remnant of survivors which there will no doubt be few, will recreate for 1000 years and then satan will be loosed to garner more souls for himself. Why would God loose satan and allow him to grab more souls for himself? Because the Lord wants those who chose Him and were given a choice, even then some many will choose satan, even after having lived with the Lord Jesus for 1000 years reigning upon this earth.

How sad for those who refuse the Truth even when He lives among them. I know this is exactly how it goes because the Father has revealed all of this to me in the word and gave me it all lined up and packaged neatly. God is so good when we seek we shall find. When we ask what good Father would give their child a snake when they asked for bread?

The War In Heaven

posted by PrayerWarrior

Satan Thrown Out of Heaven
I want to address the war that will be taking place in heaven, at the midway mark of the 7 last years. At that time at the 3.5 year time mark, the antichrist will stand in the temple and call himself God. I am quite sure as well that this is when the war in heaven takes place and I plan in this article, and video to show just why I understand it this way.The war in heaven is not a huge amount of information but it has all the points we need to pay attention to, in it. Jesus makes reference to it in Matt 24 and also makes reference to Daniel’s prophecies. I will show how they correlate with one another.For most bible references I use the NKJV, and the KJV. I have used the Amplified bible and the NASB.

 

Matt 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. See Jesus says the same exact thing as Daniel, about this being a time like has never been before.

 

This is all when Michael stands up. I want to look at this from Pauls perspective as well. He was also taken to heaven and shown the end He tells us this in 2 Corinthians 12. 2. But let’s look at  Thess 2:3-7 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. Or till Michael stands up to satan and throws him out of Heaven. Until the time of the war in heaven the antichrist will not be revealed. No one will know for sure who he is. Let’s go on with Rev 12.

 

Revelation 12:7-9 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. So now satan is come to the earth at this time. Will he inhabit his antichrist? I am Not sure really, but we know that there is great power in the antichrist, he deceives many, and we know he comes back to life around this time too. I imagine it is a parody of Christs resurrection as well. Knowing that satan loves making a mockery of all God has done, helps me to believe this is the case.

 

Revelation 13:11-14 let’s look at the deadly wound healed on the beast. 11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.<<<(The false Prophet, looks like a lamb the Hadith = book of eschatology of Muslims, calls this person Jesus) 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. This is all at the halfway point of the last 7 years. The oblations or sacrifices are stopped when the armies surround jerusalem, then the antichrist calls himself God in the temple.

 

Let’s go on though as we were, and finish up with Chapter 12 of Revelation. Rev 12:10-12,  Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” In this I see Jesus words to flee from Jerusalem when the a/c stands in the temple calling himself god and demanding worship.

 

The Woman Persecuted Rev 12:13-17
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 (Unbelieving Israel). 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 (To love Himself and each other) and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.This is also spoken of (the protection of this woman) in verse 6 of chp 12 of Rev. 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.

 

I also believe that is when the seals begin to be opened. The antichrist will be in power for a short 3.5 years, or 1260 days, the same amount of time that the Jews are nourished and hidden in the wilderness. The antichrist the rider on the white horse, seems to be a man of peace and for non Christians he will be, but for Jews and Christians woe to us woe. The antichrist comes on a white horse with a bow and no arrows in his quiver.  He comes conquering and to conquer, he will have that power only when he is resurrected from the dead by satan. He will have that power only because Michael is no longer holding back satans power. Once the war in heaven happens Michael is no longer restraining evil, or keeping it at bay.

 

Now in that set of verses  Rev 12:6 and 12:14 I see clearly a remnant being hidden and protected in the desert, or wilderness, or wherever it may be that God has in mind to hide the remnant, for the 3.5 years of the great tribulation, as is seen clearly in verse 6, and 14 she is cared for. God has always had a remnant of Jews always has and always will, till there is no need. It all has to do with the promise to Abraham to make more people than the sands of the sea, through him. Then the rest who hold the testimony of Jesus, that is Christians that satan goes to make war with. This is when the mark of the beast will be implemented, and carried out with deadly force. We will look at those other verses that explain all of this a little later. Many say no the Jews cannot be alive and or will have come to Christ. No not those hidden away in the desert my friends. When they see Christ coming on the clouds with power and great glory their eyes will be fully opened.

 

I have a point to make here and it is about the two commandments God has for us in the new covenant.  (Jesus tells us that love covers a multitude of sins in, Matt 22:37-40 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” See just two covers it all. because if you Love God your going to do all you can to please Him and if you love your fellow man, you are doing what you are commanded to do as well. Love will not bring harm of any kind to another.)

 

I have seen that many people cannot make a distinction here in this set of verses, Rev 12:6 and 14, but to me it is very clear and simple to understand. God allows the saints those who accepted Christ, and who follow His commandments to love God and others as we love ourselves, these are they who are Christians, as we began to be called in the book of Acts. What does Christ-ians mean? It means little Christs. We were first called Christians in Acts 11:19-26. We will go through fiery trials to be chastened and purified. Paul tells us this truth, that through much tribulation will we enter the KINGDOM OF GOD. Acts 14:22

 

There are plenty of verses that tell us the Jews will mourn as though over their first born.  Zech 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced , and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. They will repent at that time. Then also we know from many verses that the Jews will be those who mostly repopulate the earth in the millennial kingdom. Look at this set of facts. Jews will not be raptured because they do not believe in Christ. God told Abraham it was his direct seed who will populate the earth to more than the sands of the sea. Someone has to be alive for this, and whom God has blinded on purpose, (which we know till the times of the gentiles be fulfilled they are blinded) He will not hold them as accountable as if they were allowed to see and totally rejected Him anyway.

 

I believe because they repent and mourn to the very core of them, those whom the Lord has hidden away in that time, will be forgiven and taught the ways of the Messiah. God blinded them on purpose until the time of the gentiles be fulfilled. Romans 11:25-27: For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. Paul also warned the Romans against being lifted up in pride because they had been favored by God with salvation. He explained the mystery that the blindness of Israel would not last forever. He told them that this condition would only last until “the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” Then he explained that all of Israel, that existed when the fullness of the Gentiles was completed, would be saved. He went on in the chapter to explain that God first concluded the Gentiles in unbelief so that He might have mercy on the Gentiles. He then explained that the Jews are now consigned to unbelief, so that He might have mercy on the Jews. He summarizes his discourse in Romans 11:32 – For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. Revelation 1:7 also speaks of they who pierced him mourning.

 

I want to give a little background on who is the antichrist what area he will come from and it is not Rome! First of all the Romans did rule for a long time a very large tract of the middle east, but it was not they who destroyed the temple, it was the Flavians. In Daniel, it speaks of the man who will come and he is a northern middle east personality. So Turkish, Assyrian area is how I see it. The Assyrian from the tribe of Dan is how it is explained by some people, and this just rings true in my spirit. We are told in Genesis that Dan is a snake an adder, and comes from the North. Let’s look at that. “Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. 17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. 18 I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord.” (Genesis 49:16-18)

 

Then let’s look at some more verses that explain this a little further. “There is one come out of thee,[Nineveh] that imagineth evil against the Lord, a wicked counsellor.” (Nahum 1:11) Then “And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.” (Micah 5:5) then in Daniel we see he comes from the North.”Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and from it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.” (Daniel 8:8-9)

 

The Prophet Jeremiah also said that the antichrist would invade through the tribe of Dan. “The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.” (Jeremiah 8:16) We know this has not ocurred as of yet, it shows up nowhere in History. Also many people believe that the war in heaven has occurred already, but it has not as satan still goes back and forth accusing the brethren before God. Also the book of Revelation none of it has occurred as of yet with the exception maybe and this is just a maybe, as we do not know for sure as of yet, if the Judgment of the Ekklesia, the house of God, has begun. I personally think that it has been happening over the last year as all of the hard core true Christians I know, have been going through the toughest times of their lives. Physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial woes have plagued those who seek the Lord diligently. Those who study to show themselves approved and who know that there are wolves in sheeps clothing leading the many straight down the path of hell.

 

I am continually astonished at those who refuse to see the word of God just for itself, but instead seek out men and their interpretation of the word. I have had an argument with a man recently on youtube, who just cannot get it through his head, that I refuse to listen to men, and when I gave him the verse in 1 John 2:27 which says that we have no need that men teach us, he wrote a whole entire article on his blog, trying to disabuse people from knowing that they were anointed with the same Holy Spirit as any of the teachers in this modern day so called church. I have disdain for the word church because it is a misinterpreted word. Ekklesia is the word used for church and the word Ekklesia in Greek means called out ones chosen, or the elect.

 

We are all to be anointed and made into disciples as the apostles were doing. They were first discipled by Christ, then they were told to go out and make disciples of the nations, that is our great commission. Each and every person who is in the Lord and believes on the truth, are disciples, and it is all of our job to go out and make disciples of the world. How can we do that if we are not imbued with the power of the Holy Spirit, the power that raised Christ from the dead, ourselves? The dictionaries of today make no distinction between apostle and or disciple. The Greek language however makes a distinction. Strongs Greek for Apostolos #652 a messenger, envoy, delegate, one commissioned by another to represent him in some way, especially a man sent out by Jesus Christ Himself to preach the Gospel; an apostle.

 

Then we have the Greek word for Disciple, Strongs Greek #3101 mathétés a learner, pupil. These in turn go about learning the ways of the Lord and then go out teaching others the same things they learned. Healing casting out demons speaking in other tongues, prophesying, words of knowledge wisdom discerning spirits, and so on and so forth. We have a wonderful brother in Christ named Torben, Torben is taking brand new disciples and making them into disciplers themselves right away. You can find Torbens amazing truth speaking teaching videos on you tube at The Last Reformation channel. In the times coming Daniel tells us 12:3 Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. Again I have to say that we none of us can be disciples nor make disciples if the Holy Spirit is not here in the end times.

 

Also let’s look at Daniel 12:1 “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book. So I want to understand completely and I want all of you who hear to understand as well. Michael is the restrainer, there is no doubt in my mind, because as soon as he stands up, there will be times of trouble the likes of which has never been before. Michael we know from Daniels earlier writings, is a great prince he is the most powerful arch angel, and it is his job to watch over the people of the Lord, that does include Christians people.

 

As soon as we become born again, we are grafted into the olive tree. We know when He stands up when the antichrist shows himself as god and demands worship the mark will be implemented on the earth. There will be no buying or selling without that mark of the beast, we will be hunted down and many killed. We will know that the war in heaven has occurred because satan comes down and takes out his wrath on the inhabitants of the earth. He chases after the Israeli’s first and when that does not work, because they are supernaturally protected, then the saints who hold to the testimony of Jesus Christ will be in the sites of satan. This is very important to us as we will certainly be here for it.

 

Normally I like to find all of the old testament scriptures to go along with the New testament scriptures to my amazement though there really are no Old Testament scriptures to go along with the book of Revelation and the war that takes place in heaven. I know that the war in heaven has not taken place as of yet for a couple of reasons, but the biggest reason is that Jesus told John that these are things which are yet to take place and that was after Jerusalem and the temple were already destroyed. John was given the Revelation sometime after all the other apostles were dead and that has to have been after 86 AD. Some say he died around 100 AD some say he died around 90 AD. We know it was a while after the others. Rev 1:1-3 1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, 2 who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

 

See those things to come!!! But notice something else in those verses. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy. The only book in the whole bible that comes with a blessing. It must be awfully important to the Lord that we read and adhere to it. We must know the end from the beginning or we will not be prepared and or ready for what is to come. Prophecy is the most important aspect of the word of God, for it is our hope contained in the prophecies. Not only that but we are told in Revelation also that 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 

If you take the spirit of prophecy and eat it up as John did literally, it tastes sweet but makes bitter the tummy, but you will not easily forget it! We tend to remember those things that hurt our bellies. Normally though we stay away from those things, let us never stray far from the prophecies contained in the word for there in lies the spirit of Jesus the spirit of prophecy. I have people ask me all the time but how can you just study prophecy so much and only that? But honestly how do you only study prophecy? I mean in order to study the prophecies you must study the entire word! It is impossible to study only prophecy. In order to get to the prophecies you must study from one end of the word to the other! So you get to know everything in between as well.

 

Also there is some new false garbage going on by of all people John MacArthur and Brannon Howse, that you can take the mark of the beast and still go to heaven and have eternity with Christ! I beg to differ as does the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation in chapter 14:9-11 clearly states,9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

 

Blessings  to you all in Christ,

Tammy

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!
