The Invisible Eternal Planet

“GOD ON THE BLUE PLANET

IT WAS EVENING. We sat on a hill overlooking the school. The stars appeared particularly bright and clear that night.

“Imagine,” said the teacher, “that we came from somewhere out there in the universe. And we heard that the God of the universe had visited this one particular planet, this blue planet . . . earth. Imagine we heard it reported that He walked among its people as one of them. And so we came to find out which life it was that He lived. How would we find that Person?”

“He would have the nature of God,” I said. “He would be the epitome of goodness. He would be holy, righteous, loving. And He would be humble, because humility is part of goodness. And He would exist to do good. His life would be about giving of Himself. His life would be a gift. It would answer the needs of man and give life to everyone it touched.”

“What else would it be?” he asked.

“It would have to be a unique life, the most unique life. It would have the greatest impact on this world of any life. It would be like a rock thrown onto the waters of a lake. It would cause reverberations throughout the world . . . throughout time. It would change the course of history and the world.”

“And would everyone love and praise this life?” he asked.

“No,” I replied. “Since it was a fallen world, He would be both loved and hated. The forces of darkness would be against Him. He would become the focal point of all evil. And being the incarnation of good, He would have to come against evil. And being God, He would have to overcome it . . . If God came down to earth, then His life would have to become the most central life ever lived on this planet.”

“So,” said the teacher, “if God were to come down to this planet . . . then God has already come down to this planet. That’s something to celebrate. And how incredible that we could even come to know such a One . . . and that such a One would call us friend. And if we should have the life of that One inside of us, then . . .”

“What kind of life should we be living?” I said. “A life of goodness and holiness, a life of giving and selflessness, that answers the needs of those around us, that goes against the flow of this world, that overcomes evil, and that makes a difference for having been lived.”

“Yes,” said the teacher. “So live that life . . . as if the life of God was, through your life, walking among us on the blue planet . . . and it will be so.”

The Mission: Make it your aim this day to live the life of God in this world. Live to bless, to fill, to save, to overcome, and to change the world.

John 15:14–16; Ephesians 1:20–21; Colossians 1:10–11; Hebrews 13:8”

“THE OTHER THROUGH THE ONE

THE DAY WAS sunny with a cool afternoon breeze. We were walking through a garden of olive trees, the leaves of which were rustling in the wind.

“A mystery,” said the teacher. “Listen to these words written by the apostle: ‘For as woman came from man, even so man comes through woman.’ What does it mean?”

“‘As woman came from man’ . . . So from Adam came Eve. But after that, every man comes into the world through a woman . . . ‘so man comes through woman.’”

“It’s a circle of love,” he said, “a circle of being. The one comes from the other and the other comes through the one. They each come through the other. And yet it contains an even deeper mystery. Adam was created in the image of God, the visible reflection of the invisible realities of God. So if from Adam came Eve, if from the man came the woman, then what is this a reflection of? What then came from God?”

“The creation came from God,” I replied.

“So the one came from the other,” said the teacher, “but the mystery, then the other must come through the one. So if the creation came from God, then . . .”
“Then God . . . must come through the creation.”

“Yes,” said the teacher. “As man comes through woman who came from man, so God must come through the creation that came from Him . . . And so God is born among us. And the circle is complete.”

“Israel,” I said. “Israel also came from God. So as the man comes through the woman, so the God of Israel must come through Israel . . . God must be born of Israel.”
He paused, looked into my eyes, and said, “And what else comes from God?”

“We do,” I said. “We came into existence from God.”

“The one from the other and the other from the one. So what about you?”

“I came into existence from God. Therefore, it’s only complete if God is born through me.”

“You exist from Him . . . that He might exist through you. And what is salvation? It is exactly that. It is this mystery. It is God come through you who came from Him . . . His life now born through your life. And that is the purpose of your life. So make this your aim: Let God come through you. Let His love, His goodness, His nature, His presence, let His life come through your life . . . the one from the other and the other through the one. And then the circle . . . is complete.”

The Mission: Take part in the mystery today. Let the life, the love, the goodness, the power, and the presence of God, through your life, be born.

Genesis 2:21–23; 1 Corinthians 11:11–12; Ephesians 5:25–32”

“THE BRIDE IN THE TENT

BEHOLD THE CALAH,” said the teacher, as he drew my attention to a young woman in the tent village. “It’s how you say the bride in Hebrew. Do you remember when the bridegroom made his visit? It was for her.”

“And yet she’s still here,” I said. “She’s the bride but not yet married.”

“In the Hebrew wedding, the bridegroom journeys to the house of the bride. There, in that house or tent, the covenant is made. They are from that moment on considered bride and groom, husband and wife. But the bridegroom must then leave the bride and her house and journey back to where he came from. The two are joined in the covenant of marriage. But they don’t see each other until the day of the wedding. They spend their time preparing for that day.”

“But for the bride, it seems as if nothing’s changed. She still lives with her family in that tent. She’s still doing her daily chores. Her surroundings are the same. Her life is the same. She’s married, but what’s changed?”
“She’s changed,” he said. “She is now the calah!”
“I don’t understand.”

“Two thousand years ago the Bridegroom journeyed to the house of the bride, God journeyed to this world, to our house, to our lives. And, likewise, it was to make a covenant. According to the mystery, the bridegroom must leave the bride’s house and return home. So Messiah then left this world to return to His dwelling place. So these now are the days of the separation. The Groom now dwells in His house, heaven. And the bride dwells in her house, this world. So we, the bride, now dwell in this house, this world. So you, in your life, still dwell in the same tent. That which is around you still looks the same and feels the same. Your life, your circumstances may look unchanged. But something very big has changed . . . you . . . not the tent . . . not the world around you . . . but you. And thus you are no longer of the world. You belong to the Bridegroom. You’re free. You’re the calah!”

The Mission: Live this day as the bride in the tent—as one no longer bound by your circumstances, but belonging to the Bridegroom—free of this world.

John 17:9–18; 2 Corinthians 11:12; 1 Peter 2:11–12”

“THE MYSTERY OF SUMMER

THE DAY WAS hot and marked by the gusts of scorching desert wind. We were sitting on a hill overlooking a field that belonged to one of the agricultural settlements. It was now filled with laborers harvesting its grain.

“The age has unfolded,” said the teacher, “according to the mystery of the Hebrew calendar, with each prophetic event foreshadowed by a Hebrew holy day. But where in the age are we now?”

“Where did we leave off?” I asked.

“What was the last of the Hebrew holy days to have already been fulfilled?”

“Shavuot, the Feast of Pentecost.”

“So then, if we want to know where we are in the age, we have to look at what took place in the Hebrew year after Shavuot, Pentecost. At the end of Shavuot, the Hebrews went out from Jerusalem to their fields and vineyards to reap the long summer harvest. They would labor throughout the summer months until the return of the holy days in autumn. They would then finish the harvest and return again to gather before the Lord in Jerusalem.”

“So if Pentecost, Shavuot, was the last holy day to be fulfilled, then . . .”

“Then now is the summer of the age, now is the time of the summer harvest. Just as Shavuot was the time of going forth from Jerusalem out to the fields of harvest, so it was on Shavuot, Pentecost, two thousand years ago, that the apostles went forth from Jerusalem to bring salvation to the ends of the earth. The field is the world . . . the season is the age . . . and the harvest is salvation, the gathering in of new life. And what did Messiah say of the present age?”

“He said that now was the time of the harvest . . . the time to go out and reap.”

“And did you know that in Hebrew the word for harvest, kayitz, also means the summer? So we are now in the summer of the age, the summer harvest. And that means that your primary goal must be to reap eternal life, to spread the word of salvation, to go out into world and save the lost. Make that your aim. For the days of the harvest are numbered. And the time to reap new life and save the lost comes only once. Therefore, go out and reap all you can in the time you have . . . until we all appear in Jerusalem . . . at summer’s end.”

The Mission: It is the summer of the age. Make it your aim this day to reap the harvest all around you. Bring forth salvation and bring in eternal life.

“THE ALPHA OMEGA MAN

WE WERE SITTING on the sandy plain just beyond the school grounds. Using a wooden stick, the teacher began drawing symbols in the sand. The first appeared to be the capital letter A. The second looked something like a horseshoe.

“In Isaiah 44,” he said, “it is written, ‘I am the First and the Last. Apart from me there is no God.’ God is the First of existence and the Last. And this,” he said, pointing to the first symbol, “is the Alpha, the first letter of the Greek alphabet. And this,” he said, pointing to the second, “is the last letter of the Greek alphabet, the Omega. These are the symbols of God. God is the Alpha, the Beginning of all things, and the Omega, the End of all things . . . the Alpha and the Omega, the source of all existence . . . and its object. So, in the last chapter of the last book of the Bible, the Book of Revelation, it is written, ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.’”

“As in Isaiah,” I said.

“Yes, but in the Book of Revelation the words are specifically referring to Messiah. He is the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, the Alpha and Omega.”

“I guess He’d have to be.”

“So what would happen if the Alpha and Omega came into the world?”

“He would become the Alpha and the Omega of the world?”

“He would become the Alpha and Omega of history . . . of time. His presence would cause time to divide and history to split in two. He would become the Omega, the End, of one age, and the Alpha, the Beginning, of the other . . . BC and AD . . . the Omega of BC and the Alpha of AD. He becomes the Alpha and Omega of history . . . and the Alpha and Omega of all who find Him. He divides, in the same way, the history of our lives. He becomes the Omega, the End, of our lives, our BC . . . and the Alpha, the Beginning, the new beginning of our AD . . . the new birth.”

The teacher then drew a line in the sand joining the Alpha and the Omega. “All time proceeds from the Alpha to the Omega. So the secret is . . . receive each moment of your life from Him the Alpha . . . and live each moment to Him the Omega. For He is the Alpha and Omega of existence . . . and the Alpha and the Omega . . . of you.”

The Mission: This day make Him your Alpha. Receive every moment from Him. And live every moment to Him as your Omega.

The 3,000 Year Old Mystery…

Chapter 24-The Mystery of the Shemitah by Jonathan Cahn: The 3,000-Year-Old Mystery

THAT WHICH LIES AHEAD

The Eyes of the Prophet

THE PROPHET GAZED into the smoldering ruins of the holy city. He had been given warning by God and had, in turn, given warning to his nation. But they didn’t listen. They cast him into prison and continued on their course of defiance until the judgment finally came.

The year 586 BC was one of history’s turning points. Jeremiah was there to see it firsthand just as he was there to foretell it. As he now beheld the desolation of the holy city, he could not escape grappling with a mystery begun many centuries earlier in the wilderness of Sinai. The Law of Moses had foretold the day of destruction. According to the ancient words, the people would be sent into exile and the land would rest. And the time of that rest and desolation would be determined by the number of Sabbath years, the Shemitahs, the nation had broken.
As he surveyed the city of God now lying still and silent—desolate and devoid of its ”

“inhabitants—the prophet wept and pondered the mystery of the covenant. He knew that the word shemitah meant “the release.” And now the land had been released. He knew also that it signified “the letting fall.” And now God had allowed the holy city to fall and the kingdom of Judah itself to collapse. The prophet could now only wonder how the ancient mystery of the Shemitah could have so determined the fate of his nation.

The Mystery of the Shemitah

We now stand two and a half thousand years later, pondering the same mystery as pondered by the prophet in the ruins. We also may wonder how such an ancient mystery has so determined the course of nations, world markets, empires, and history. And as the prophet saw the mystery become flesh- and-blood reality in his own life and time when the cataclysm fell upon the land, it is now for us as well to bring the mystery home to our day and age, to see what it may hold and reveal concerning the future of America and the world.

We have seen an ancient ordinance of Scripture concerning a seventh year of rest and a “Day of Remission transform into a mystery. We have observed the mystery growing larger in scope and dimensions to the point of involving the destruction of an ancient city and the exile of its people to a foreign land. We have moved forward in time to find the same mystery spanning thousands of years and operating in the modern world. We have witnessed its dynamics at work in the financial and economic realms, determining the rising and crashing of world markets, the economies of modern nations, and the greatest collapses in financial history. We have seen it coalesce with a mystery of towers, again joined to the dynamics of rising and falling. And we have watched it move on the stage of world history, determining the rise and fall of nations, the ascendancy of world powers and the collapse of empires.

The Quickening

What about the future? And why might the mystery of the Shemitah be especially relevant to our day and the days to come?

In the last two of the Shemitah’s cycles, those ending in 2001 and 2008, we have noticed a number of significant developments. First, the timing has become amazingly precise. Both of the last two greatest stock market point crashes in history have occurred on the exact same Hebrew day and the Shemitah’s exact same climactic Day of Remission and Nullification. The phenomenon appears, in its last manifestations, to have grown increasingly precise and dramatic.

Second, the phenomenon of the last two cycles was begun and triggered by one of the most dramatic events of modern times: 9/11. If it were not for 9/11, the ancient mystery would not have manifested. If it were not for the exact timing of 9/11, the timing of the stock market crash of 2001 would not have happened when it did at the time and in the exact hours of the Shemitah’s climactic conclusion.

Third, the amazing precision of the Shemitah’s last two occurrences are connected to the manifestation of harbingers, prophetic signs concerning the judgment of a nation—namely, America. Combine this with the fact that the Shemitah, in Scripture, manifests as a sign of national judgment—and we have a convergence of alarms.
Since we are dealing with the issue of judgment, our first question must be this: What has happened to America in the time of these last two cycles in which the phenomenon has intensified?

The Deepening

Though in the wake of 9/11 Americans gathered in houses of worship across the land and it appeared as if there would be a national return to God—it never came. In place of the revival was a spiritual and moral apostasy that was unprecedented in its scope and accelerating pace. There was now increasing talk concerning the end of “Christian America.” Polls noticed a growing departure from biblical ethics and values. The turn was most pronounced among the younger generation, portending a future of even greater moral and spiritual departure.

In the fall of ancient Israel the nation decided it could rewrite morality and change what was good and evil, sin and righteousness—so too in America. What had once been recognized as right was now attacked as evil, and what had once been recognized as sin was now celebrated as a virtue. Morals, standards, and values that had undergirded not only the nation’s foundation, but also the foundation of Western civilization and civilization itself, were increasingly overturned, overruled, and discarded. And those who would not go along with the change—who merely continued to uphold that which had once been universally upheld—were now increasingly marginalized, vilified, condemned by the culture and the state, and persecuted.

And not only did the blood of unborn children continue to flow, as it did in ancient Israel, but the number of those killed was now well over fifty million, a population of many Israels. The nation’s moral descent had now reached the point where the government was seeking to force those who held to God’s Word to go against that Word, punishing resistance with fines, damages, and condemnation. Any deviation from the new ethics of apostasy was swiftly punished. At the same time, the name of God increasingly became the object of attack, mockery, and blasphemy.

The Dark City on the Hill

It seemed as if every day a new threshold of apostasy and moral descent had been crossed. America was in moral and spiritual collapse and rapidly transforming into the dark opposite of the “city on a hill,” the “holy commonwealth” it had been founded to be. It had been founded to be. It had now entered the territory of ancient Israel’s apostasy—a nation to which the prophets cried out:

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness.

—ISAIAH 5:20

And that was the point. America, having been formed after the pattern of ancient Israel, was now following in the course of Israel’s apostasy. Thus it could be no accident that the same harbingers that appeared in the last days of ancient Israel were now reappearing in America. And each of those harbingers was warning of a coming judgment. Worse than that, America was responding to those warnings with the same defiance as had ancient Israel before judgment fell.”

Epilogue, Part 2

ONE LAST MYSTERY: The SEVENTH SHEMITAH

 

The Jubilee

ONE LAST MYSTERY—and one that reveals not only the Shemitah’s prophetic nature but also its dynamic of redemption.

In the Bible every seventh day is a Sabbath day. Every seventh year is a Shemitah or Sabbath year. And every seventh Shemitah leads into the year called “Jubilee.” The Jubilee always follows the Year of the Shemitah.

And you shall count seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month . . .

—LEVITICUS 25:8–9

The word jubilee has come to mean a time of celebration or anniversary. But in Hebrew, the word is yobel. Yobel means “trumpet blast.” The Jubilee was heralded with sounding of the trumpet throughout the land. (Pay Attention…)

The Year of Setting Free

As the crowning of the seventh Shemitah, or the seventh cycle of seven years, the Jubilee was something of a super Shemitah. It was the Shemitah taken to a new level. In the Year of the Shemitah the land rested—so too in the Year of Jubilee:

That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine.

—LEVITICUS 25:11

In the Year of the Shemitah came release. But in the Year of Jubilee the release took on new meaning. It was not simply the letting go of land or debt. In the Jubilee, slaves and prisoners were set free. It was thus the year of liberty:

And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants.

—LEVITICUS 25:10

 

The Year of Restoration and Coming Home

For those in debt the Shemitah brought restoration as all debts were wiped away. But in the Jubilee the restoration involved even more:

It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. . . . In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possession.

—LEVITICUS 25:10, 13

If one had lost one’s inheritance or the inheritance of one’s family, in the Year of Jubilee it would be restored. The Jubilee was the year of restoration, the year of reconciliation, and the year of return. In the Jubilee, if others had taken possession of one’s land, they had to relinquish it. The Jubilee saw individuals returning to their families, families returning to their ancestral homes and lands, possessions returning to their owners, and the dispossessed returning to their inheritances.

No one today knows for sure when the Year of Jubilee falls….-…

The Connection Between the Beast and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil…The Fall of Mankind…

Understanding the Doom of the Dragon, the “Beast” (Key Point: Symbolism…the mind of God…) and the False Prophet…(One World Religion-Radical Islam)

I would like to welcome all of you to this seminar, entitled, “The Beast: The Summary of The Seven Heads and Ten Horns.” This seminar is derived from the five-part seminar series “The Rising of The Beast Out of The Sea,” and is designed to give you a complete overview of the beast in Revelation, Chapter 13, verse 1, which reads:

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

This is one Scripture that will leave you mystified, if you don’t understand all of its symbolism in totality. (Key Point: “We have believed all kinds of things when it comes to this beast…”) Some of us may even be looking to see something like a big red dragon with wings and a serpent’s tongue, scales like a lizard, and claws like an eagle coming up out of the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Well, today, we are here, once and for all, to dispel all false theories, and to reveal the truth of what this really means: from His rise out of the sea, seven heads, ten horns, and ten crowns, right down to the very names of blasphemy that are upon his heads.

 

Let us begin our journey through this Scripture with the phrase, “…and saw a beast rise up out of the sea (lake)….” In this phrase, we received a shocking revelation. We found that the word sea (s-e-a) derived from the word see (s-e-e-). As we studied this word from its etymological rendition, we found that the sea, from which the beast would rise up out of, is actually the See of Rome or the Roman Catholic Church….(Think About It for a minute…How do we connect the religion of Islam with churches that have been corrupted? not only the Roman Catholic Church, but ALL churches…)

Key Point: Other convincing documentation from our research of the word “sea” proved, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the rise of the beast out of the sea is all about establishing a one world religion-Islam….How might you envision this beast rising up out of the sea or lake?

And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast…

The word worship means “to take part in religious services.” Accordingly, we received the knowledge that those who take part in the religious services of the dragon are, indeed, worshippers of the “anti- christ.” So, our question was, Who is the dragon? The word dragon was defined as a mythical monster. When we broke down the words mythical and monster, we learned that the dragon is the supreme head of the One World Religion that claims to promote peace but is sheer deception and the worst of abominations to God and His Son…Note: Who have been crucified by this beast and who His Son has battled this entire time…”IF” he were here on earth…

 

Within the phrase, “…and ten horns…,” was identified a crucial event that shall usher in the New World Order. This crucial event that is forthcoming will be the turning point, and will result in a grave consequence: “a time of Great Trouble.”

We also went to (Key Reference) Mark, Chapter 13, verse 19: 12

 

For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God, , created unto this time, neither shall be.

 

After this, we were left with no choice but to closely examine the phrase, “…and upon his horns ten crowns….” In this phrase, we found that horns has a total different meaning than that of the “ten horns.” Horns, in this phrase, disclosed to us that President George W. Bush is concerned with a group of nations (An Entity)/ (or leaders/heads of different nations) that are in the same area (Think about it…The Best Way to conceal the identity of the beast would be for it to exist the place you would least expect it…US soil possibly..,) and he shall take on an aggressive attitude against them, and shall even go to war with them. To understand why he is going to war with a group of nations that are in the same area, we examined his “aggressive” attitude.

 

The answer as to why we should not be afraid of their terror, neither be troubled as we suffer for righteousness’ sake is found in Romans, Chapter 8, verses 17 and 18:

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint- heirs with Christ, ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified together. If we suffer with , we shall also be glorified with Him. Continue with Verse 18:

 

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

The suffering, pain, distress, injury, and loss that we shall undergo, endure, and be subjected to in this present time is not even worthy enough to be compared to the GLORY which shall reveal in us.

We found out that upon his heads, which are the top officials of the FBI, Department of Justice, and the CIA–John Ashcroft, George J. Tenet, Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, and Donald Rumsfeld–could they have been forced to to publish inaccurate news about us; to generate false reports, create made up videotapes, and develop fake photographs of us. ( Money and Power….Remove it and what do you have?) 

 

When we reveal to the world the handwriting on the wall (which we are already doing on the Internet), it served as a sign to President George W. Bush that his kingdom is just about FINISHED. Quite frankly, no one wanted to be persuaded that the end of  the kingdom is at hand, and neither does anyone want us to persuade the masses with our overwhelming evidence of truth about America as written in the Holy Bible.

Even more, regardless of the evil reports, made up videotapes, and fake photographs that shall be manipulated, using high technology and sophisticated computerization, to portray us as evil, has reserved those of us who truly belong to Him to not be moved by this slander campaign (Signs and Wonders). For we–the true followers of Christ- know that this slander campaign is not worthy neither can it be compared to the “glory” that shall be revealed in us…”We” who have remained true until the end…the called and the chosen…

This concludes our overview of Revelation, Chapter 13, verse 1. I hope that this has given everyone a broad overview of the events that are SOON to come upon us. And I pray that we will all be strong and courageous to stand against what is ahead. May the Holy Spirit be upon all of us to direct us, bless us, and keep us. Shalom…

You see, the Son of God, was called and chosen to be the one who would reveal all of this information and the identity of the monstrous entity that has deceived the entire world…

Key Note: The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil…Could we combine this reference to the beast to the fall of mankind? Could we use the color code to help us identify the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? Religious affiliation in our MODERN world…

Think about it like this…What color was Kryptonite? and what effect did it have upon Superman? The Savior of the World? There was a Brilliant mind behind it all…

Pay Attention: (End Times Prophecy)

Revelation 2:13

“I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelt…”

(Jesus understands this entity better than anyone because he has experienced it during his crucifixion…)

Cutting Down the Deception…A Monstrous Power

Truth Revealed By God

Chapter: Chief Shepherd (Pages 88-92)

READ Revelation 3:7-8. And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this: I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name (NASB).

READ 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12. …and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth as to be saved. And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, in order that they may all be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness (NASB).

 

READ Ezekiel 1:4-10. And as I looked, behold a storm wind was coming from the north, a great cloud with fire flashing forth continually and a bright light around it, and in its midst something like glowing metal in the midst of the fire. And within it were four figures resem- bling four living beings. And this was their appearance: they had human form. Each of them had four faces and four wings. And their legs were straight and their feet were like a calf’s hoof, and they gleamed like burnished bronze. Under their wings on their four sides were human hands. As for the faces and wings of the four of them, their wings touched one another, their faces did not turn when they moved, each went straight forward. As for the form of their faces, each had the face of a man, all four had the face of a lion on the right and the face of a bull on the left, and all four had the face of an eagle (NASB).

 

READ Isaiah 14:12-15. How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations! But you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God and I will sit on the mount of the assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High (NASB).

 

DEVOTIONAL

As we read these scriptures, we come to recognize that He, who holds the key to David, is the one who has access to the kingdom of God. This is the gate for the sheep and the entrance to our new life with Christ as our King. For He is the offspring of David and the Bright Morning Star. For those who believe in His name, there is salvation and glory awaiting them. God also tests those that have denied His Son and does not distribute clarity but allows them to believe in false religion. For these are those who shared in evil works and acts of deception!

 

 In Ezekiel, we see where God paints a picture for us to recognize His absolute authority and His creation. This image portrays the power of God and how He can create the most powerful of beings. I believe that this image also connects us to the New Jerusalem and Jesus. In Isaiah, we see where God has made it clear what happened during the fall of Satan or Lucifer. He deceived the nations and brought chaos as opposed to peace and truth. He also beheld himself above the Holy angels which have the power to save and protect God’s chosen people. We must be aware of false prophets and those that wish to destroy, as the son of the dawn is the son of destruction. Remember that the son of the dawn has been in control up until this point, but now it is time for Jesus to take over all things and to conquer the great destroyer and deceiver.

 

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Lord Of Glory (Pages 36…-“37”)

READ Mark 13:24-29:

But in those days, after that tribulation, the Sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then He will send forth the angels, and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest end of the earth, to the farthest end of heaven. Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender, and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. Even so, you too, when you see these things happening, recognize that He is near, right at the door. (J.NLT)

“The truth that Jesus brings cuts through all literature and determines the course of this world. The truth that will be revealed at his coming will be more powerful than any earthly individual. (Key point) It will be hard for many to hear, but a saving grace for all of those who have followed God and put their trust in Him. It is important to not be divided, but to become one body united in Christ. Do away with all false literature and focus on the truth. Look for the wisdom that Jesus brings.”

Truth Revealed By God

Chapter: Lord Of Harvest (Pages 38-41)

 

READ Revelation 13:11-18:

And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. And he performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given to him to perform in the presence of the Beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the Beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. And there was given to him to give breath to the image of, that the image of the Beast might even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the Beast to be killed. And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead, and he provides that no one should be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the Beast or the number of his name. Here is the wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the Beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. (J. NLT)

 

DEVOTIONAL

It is critical in reading this scripture that we remember that “he” may also be defined as “she”. The Beast can take the form of a woman or a man, and we know that this is the same with angels. The power given to the Beast allows for it to transform into a man or a woman. You see, the Great Harlot that rides the Beast is one entity…This is supernatural understanding and comprehension…We can understand this depiction or illustration by the union of a man and a woman when married and bonded by the Holy Spirit (The same type of connection but much more powerful and pure…) This is the truth that is hidden from most readers of this scripture. The plan of the Harlot and the Beast was to take away what belonged or belongs to God…At the Coming of the Christ we see Jesus rightfully reclaiming what belonged to him from the beginning…If I were to think a great book to write, an interesting story to write would be about Jesus and the Holy Angels versus the Beast and the Great Harlot…For all the world must know that this battle was and has been very real up until the Final Day…One must be aware of this power in order to resist and overcome the ways of the Devil. This part of prophecy requires us to be aware of this absolute, for the Devil can take the form of either a man or a woman. This is how the vast amount of manipulation has taken place over the course of time…This is why interpreting scripture can become so misleading, and this is also how the Devil prowls about unseen by those that are unaware. Being fully aware of this fact helps us gain insight and understanding. Remember that Jesus knows all of this and will fulfill His promise to overcome the Beast, and this entity… Prophecy has made it very clear.

Key Reference: William Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet 
Hold thy desperate hand.
Art thou a man? Thy form cries out thou art.
Thy tears are womanish. Thy wild acts denote
The unreasonable fury of a beast.
Unseemly woman in a seeming man,
And ill-beseeming beast in seeming both!
Thou hast amazed me. By my holy order,
I thought thy disposition better tempered.
Hast thou slain Tybalt? Wilt thou slay thyself,
And slay thy lady that in thy life lives
By doing damnèd hate upon thyself?
Why rail’st thou on thy birth, the heaven, and earth?
Since birth and heaven and earth, all three do meet
In thee at once, which thou at once wouldst lose?
Fie, fie, thou shamest thy shape, thy love, thy wit,
Which, like a usurer, abound’st in all
And usest none in that true use indeed
Which should bedeck thy shape, thy love, thy wit.
Thy noble shape is but a form of wax,
Digressing from the valor of a man;
Thy dear love sworn but hollow “perjury”,
Killing that love which thou hast vowed to cherish;
We are able to associate these words by Shakespeare with the nature of the Great Harlot and the Beast…

Black Horse of Judgment Upon the World

Truth Revealed By God

Chapter: Horn of Salvation (Pages 152-155)

READ Genesis 50:20. You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people (J. NLT).

READ Matthew 25:31. But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate the people as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep at his right hands and the goats at his left (J. NLT).

 

READ Acts 1:11. “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!” (J. NLT)

READ 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words (J. NLT).

 

DEVOTIONAL

As we read these scriptures, we are filled with the Holy Spirit of truth and hope. Since the beginning, in Genesis, God has protected those whom He has chosen and loved. We should be looking for God to be sepa- rating the sheep from the goats. Be looking up, awaiting the face of Jesus to be shown.

Watch for the clouds to be moving with Him at His coming. Look up! All of those who have been slain and have died will rise to be with God, and those who have remained will be raptured, “Harpazo”, into the clouds to be in heaven with God. Then, we will see the end.

Chapter: Fullers’ Soap {Pages 141-(145)}

READ Genesis 32:24-30. This left Jacob all alone in the camp, and a man came and wres- tled with him until the dawn began to break. When the man saw that he would not win the match, he touched Jacob’s hip and wrenched it out of its socket. Then the man said, “Let me go, for the dawn is breaking!” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” “What is your name?” the man asked. He replied, “Jacob.” “Your name will no longer be Jacob,” the man told him. “From now on you will be called Israel, because you have fought with God and with me and have won. “Please tell me your name,” Jacob said. “Why do you want to know my name?” the man replied. Then he blessed Jacob there. Jacob named the place Peniel (which means “face of God”), for he said, “I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been spared (J. NLT).

 

READ Revelation 19:17-21. The I saw an angel standing in the sun, shouting to the vul- tures flying high in the sky: “Come! Gather together for the great banquet God has pre- pared. Come and eat the flesh of kings, generals, and strong warriors; of horses and their riders; of all humanity, both free and slave, small and great.” Then I saw the beast and the kings of the world and their armies gath- ered together to fight against the one sitting on the horse and his army. And the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who did mighty miracles on behalf of the beast- miracles that deceived all who had accepted the mark of the beast and who worshipped his statue. Both the beast and the false prophet were thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. Their entire army was killed by the sharp sword that came from the mouth of the one riding the white horse. And the vultures all gorged on the dead bodies (J. NLT).

 

READ Habakkuk 3:6. When he stops, the earth shakes. When he looks, the nations tremble. He shatters the everlasting moun- tains and levels the eternal hills. He is the Eternal One (J. NLT).

 

DEVOTIONAL

For us, Jacob is an example of how God rewards us by fighting with Him in battle. The battles that we face now are mostly spir- itual and a battle of the mind. It is our job to stand firm and to not allow evil to creep in, as Satan is very sly in his ways of persecuting us. Know that God is with you in all that you face. All things are possible through God, who pro- vides us the wisdom that we need to overcome the adversity. Find strength in your achieve- ments and feel successful in winning these battles. The final battle where God conquers Satan is a battle of the mind. (Key To understanding the altering of the mind is full recognition of the ways of Satan)… It is our job to perfect our minds and to stay away from those who influence us in a negative way, and to be careful of the situations that we put ourselves in. We are very sensitive to the world and know the ways of the world. Do not be of the world, but be of God. For God has overcome the world through His Son. Today, we are to look for the Rider on the true white horse, who is Jesus. He has already conquered the beast and the false prophet. (Key Note: the rider on the Black Horse brings with him God’s judgment…) Have faith in His words of reconciliation. For His vengeance is upon the wicked and He will uphold the righteous. It is reassurance to know that when God stops, the earth shakes and the nations tremble. For God’s Eternal existence and power is beyond our human comprehension.
