OLD DECEPTION MADE NEW–NEW AGE.

How can anything be “NEW,” when it’s very origins came from the time of the Tower of Babel, and Sun god worship, and Ishtar the “Queen of Heavens” as the Fertility goddess symbolized by EGGS and Rabbits?  [Can you not see "Easter- eggs and bunnies here?]

Who today, practices this stuff, with its heavy reliance of the Occult and its symbols, plus the reliance upon Spiritualism, which has Satan’s blessings?  Most of “Christian” denominations, are colored by it in various degrees. One of the biggest proponents, of this is the “Purpose Driven Church” by Rick Warren, who publicly states, “I will not allow the Book of Revelation to be taught in MY CHURCH!”

OH? MR. Warren YOU know of course how this book begins, do you not?…..

Revelation 1:1-3 “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”

So, MR. Warren, did I understand you correctly, that YOU willingly will with hold, Christ’s testimony, and thereby HIS blessings for those that hear the words of this prophecy?????

STEPS to the BOTTOM FOR SATAN.

STEP 1: Revelation 12:7 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,”                                                                       Step 1 is setting one’s self up against God and His law.  Should not all people copy the example set by Jesus Christ?                                                                                                                  Luke 4:16 “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.”                                                                                                                           But YOU, as sadly most so-called “Christians” follow the edicts of Rome and worship on the “Venerable day of the Sun” as per the degree, in 321 A.D. by the Roman Emperor Constantine, which Roman church only to happily incorporated within itself, tom this day! It is their tradition, which they hold above the Holy Bible!  Thus most are obeying the commandments of men, not God’s!

Note: In the Latter Days, just before Christ’s return, there shall be only TWO camps of people ONE that obeys God, and the are those that obeys man, these are the lost, that shall perish!  Very simple is it not?

Step 2.     Revelation 12:9-10 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”

Why anyone who professes to be a Christ man or woman, will NOT study the Bible, precept upon precept, line upon line, is beyond my grasp. I mean is life eternal of so little import, is the fact that Christ took YOUR PLACE, and died for your sins, of so little worth to you, that you can’t be bothered to learn all you can about HE , and ONLY HE, that can Save YOU?  After All when Jesus died on the Cross, and was resurrected, Satan was defeated! Plus he knows it…  1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”                                 Ezekiel 28:15-19 “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.”

Step 3.   Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”                                       We can all know that Christ totally defeated Satan, by the simple fact that we each can call on Jesus, to help us overcome Satan’s temptations!                                                                    Revelation 12:12 “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”                                                     However, those of us whom follow and obey the commandments of men will endure……           Revelation 19:11-13 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.”

SO WHAT MUST WE DO?

1 Thessalonians 4:13. “And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: To the end he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.”                                                                                            All this is for the believers, by just asking the Father for it and Jesus’ name! For we can not rebuild self, nor change out thinking habits for the good.

SO WHAT HAPPENS TO THIS OLD DEVIL, SATAN?

 Revelation 20:1-3 “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”

This is the time many call the Millennium Age, the 1,000 years between Christ’s return, and at its end the saints and the New Jerusalem and all of Heaven will return to this earth, and this city will cover the area God had promised to Abraham so long ago! ” [Rev.21:2]  This will become the Second Resurrection, consisting of all those who have rejected Christ, and they shall come out of the graves, not in the Glorious Bodies of the Christ and his saints, but the bodies and the with all the ailments that they had at His 2nd Advent!

They ALL will again be deceived by Satan, and they will surround the New City, to try to take by force, that which was freely offered to them during their live-span,  to eat from the Tree of Life, at Satan’s urging! That’s when fire and brimstone will come down, all across earth, and it shall purify it and remove all sinners, by reducing the almost instantly to ashes!

                    How can a LOVING GOD destroy the wicked, ask many!

God told Israel to eliminate sin filled people, that inhabited the Promised lands right? Plus all but 8 Souls were lost in the Noahtic Flood. Then right after wards when the saints inherit the earth, God cause all who reject Him and His Son, to perish in the Lake of Fire’s one and only usage!                                                                                                                       Now all who have rejected the Father and the Son, shall by both also be rejected! None of them would be happy without wild parties, booze, dope, and all the rest is the sins, and God knows it! Thus He withdraws His Spirit from them and as He is also the very source of LIFE ITSELF, they cease to live! Simply no more complicated than that, HE loves each us very ,very much, so much so that Our Father will give them what they request, His presence, no longer within them. The they perish, and perish for ever!                                          Psalms 149:6-7 “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;”                                                                                                                                                        The Word of God, the Holy Bible, IS THE two-edged sword, it can cut away the sins we carry, if we are but willing to let got of them!  As He is life, they chose death, which is living without Jesus!

 John 5:24-29 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life;[ 1st Resurrection] and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection [2nd Resurrection] of damnation.”

Notice that the Father has committed the Son, Jesus all judgments concerning humanity?                                                                                                                                      WHY?                                                                                                                                                     Christ lived as a Flesh Man, tempted in all areas we are tempted, yet His lived with sin, without blemish or spot. So He Jesus can can empathy for what we humans endure while on earth, being temped by Sin that Satan pushes forth, all thought he can’t force any one to do anything against your will, he finds many ever willing right?                                                    Hebrews 2:14-17 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.”                                        Hebrews 1:14 “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”                                                                                                              All Heaven stands ready to help those who call on Jesus in faith/Trust!                                    John 5:26For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;                                                                                  

 Revelation 20:12-15 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

 Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;                                        Yes all have, and are, sinners, but if we surrender unto Jesus, HE will give us of His power to us to over come any sin. 

Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”                                                                All it takes on our part is a willing heart! Yet always know this no matter the sin you have behind you, God is big enough to help you gain victory by accepting YOU no matter where you are, Christ’ s death is payment enough for all sins for all time from all humans!

So, why do I keep coming back to Christ and His death on the Cross? In order for ALL, me included, to be able to see the cost if sin!    Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”                 OK, but what is sin?                                                                                                                            Romans 7:7 “What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.”                                                                                                                                                   But. . .but why all the concentration of the Sabbath as the day of and for worship?

Notice the 4th Commandment:

Exodus 20:8-11″ Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.”

 Revelation 14:7 “Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”                                                                                                                  Do you see how much these two passages have in common?  No look at….                                James 2:10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”                                                                                                                 Now, PLEASE  look at a calendar, and take note of the seventh day Saturday, plus know as well that is 85 languages their word for Saturday means REST, and in the Hebrew Sabbath means rest!  How can that be, with God?

Chap. XII. L. #7. “Where will the Just SPEND ETERNITY?

IN THE BEGINNING, God created a perfect world. He created man and gave him dominion over every living thing.   When man rebelled (sinned) God already had a plan in place for our Salvation….

 Titus 2:14 “Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”

Few “Christians”, teach this but God also has a plan to redeem this sin ravished earth, and its effects…..Numbers 14:21 “But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.”

NOTE: to all the “New Testament Christians”, just look at all the wisdom you reject and ignore!

1. What will the meek [humble] inherit? 

Matthew 5:5 “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.”                                Psalms 37:11 “But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.”

Note: Contrast the next passage…….

 Psalms 37:8-10 “Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.”

     Look at what God had Peter write:…….  2 Peter 3:9-11 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,”

2. For what purpose was the Earth Created?

Isaiah 45:18-20 “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.”

Note: If Y O U dear reader, have been studying the Prophetic Word, you must realize that we and this old sick world can NOT keep on going! Christ SHALL return as due to the signs in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21. Then know this also, as per Revelation of Jesus Christ, [Rev.1:1]  this book is all about Jesus, and Worship according to God, following HIS Commandments, right?                                                                                             However most “Christians” follow the commands of Rome thus man, by their worship on The SUN’s Day, and not on God’s Sabbath days!   This fact alone with dictate there shall in the end days but two camps!

1. Those that follow God word…..

2. Those that follow the words of men! Now I ask YOU reader, can the POPE safe himself to eternal life?  Can he safe YOU?                                                                                       Sorry, that’s only Jesus is able to do, because He died for all our sins, and that GIVES Him the right in the Father’s sight to save all who obey in love!

3. WHEN, will earth become the home of the Redeemed?

Revelation 21:1-3 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

X<Christ’s Return..>begins the 1,000 years, in which Saints Judge>X Rev 21:2>Eternity

Please know this: When Rev.21:2′s the Holy City rests upon the same area that God had promised to Abraham, Satan will be released, as will all the wicked, be resurrected, just as they went into death, but Satan will deceive them into attacking and surrounding the New Jerusalem, in their combined effort, to take by force that which they rejected willingly! That’s when God will form the Lake of Fire, to destroy all evil, and to make pure this earth again! Revelation 20:7-9 “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

4. Who will prepare the homes and the food in the New Earth?

Isaiah 65:21-22 “And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. ”                                                               Note: How many thought that we would be fat little beings sitting on clouds, playing a harp?

5. Will the animals be there, and be different in temperament?

Isaiah 65:25 “The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.”   Isaiah 11:6-9 “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

6. Will there be any sickness in the new earth?

 Revelation 21:4 “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”                                                                                                  NOTE: Please, lets’ use our minds, on this verse, and think! “no more sorrow, nor crying” now will Y O U accept the fact that GOD can NOT lie?                                      So, that must mean, that there shall be souls/people, who having lost loved ones, who rejected Christ, and the Father, thus perished in fire, all these “Former Things” have passed away, God removed the memories of lost loved ones from their minds, agreed?  What say YOU?

7. Will there be anything to disturb?

 Isaiah 32:18 “And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;”

Note: Sure dwellings…. they have to be, for they must last for ever, right?

CONCLUSION:

 Revelation 22:1-3 “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:”                                                             Revelation 14:6-14 “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 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, 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: 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. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.”

Comfort ye one another with these words:….. John 14:1-6 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

This is the last of this series, there’s another ready! John B.

Chap.XII. L6. Will WE KNOW LOVED ONES IN HEAVEN?

Many wondered about this question, as we lose loves one in death? Will we hear their voices again? Will we recognize our loved ones and friends? There are several ways we are told that we shall know them.

1. Do we know what people in Heaven will be like?

1 John 3:2 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”                                                                                                                                                       Note: “We shall be like Him”, who? Jesus will be in His Glorified body as we shall!

1 Corinthians 15:50-55 “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”

2. What kind of bodies will the just have?

Philippians 3:20-21 “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”

3. Did Christ have a “REAL” body on His resurrection?

Luke 24:36-43 “And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of a honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them.”

Note: 1. His disciples could see Him.                                                                                                        2. They could touch Him.                                                                                                                3. He asked for and ate food.  Clearly He had a real physical body.

 Romans 8:22-23 “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.”                                                                                                               Just as Jesus was known after His resurrection so shall the Just also be known to others.

4. How did Mary know Jesus that Sunday morning?

 John 20:11-16 “But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.”                                    She recognized His voice!  Yes all our imperfections shall be gone, and all shall be mature but youthful, say 25-35 yrs of age, forever.

6. How else was Christ known by?                                                                                             Read Luke 24:13-35. “He was known of them in breaking of bread.”

Conclusion:

 Isaiah 66:22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.” Matthew 8:11 “And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.”                        Mark 9:2-5 “And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into a high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.” {Elias = Aliyah in the Greek]  1 Corinthians 13:9-12 “For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. ”                                                                             John 6:40 “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Next: “Where will the Righteous Spend Eternity?”    [in 2 places, yet BOTH are Heaven!]  Please know Heaven is where God is!

Chap.XII. L.# 5. “THE NEW JERUSALEM”

When Jesus was about to return to Heaven He said this:                                                              John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”

Note: Dear reader, do Y O U not yet know that what YOU believe or not does not have any bearing upon the truth? God is, has always been and shall always be, and your acceptance, or rejection of that fact, will not change anything, BUT Y O U!  Satan’s most successful, to date deception, has been that most people don ‘t believe he is real! However read Christ’s words here….

 John 14:30 “Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”    (j.b. please read Isaiah 1`4:12-14 and the Ezekiel 28 for his judgement and sentence to be carried out, and why)     

1. What kind of place did Abraham expect to inhabit?

Hebrews 11:10 “For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.”

Note: Hebrews 11 is called The Faith Chapter. Read to know why.

2. What kind of place is Christ preparing?

Hebrews 11:16 “But now they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. ”                                                                                                                                                      (j.b. Are you not just plain tired, of what sin has done to this earth and its peoples? Wars. famines, floods, earthquakes, and senseless crimes, and fanatics willing to die in order to murder, thinking the do God a favor?   2 Timothy 3:1-9 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.”             (j.b. Jannes and Jambres, the two magicians of Pharaoh, whose staffs Satan turned into serpents, that the Rod of Aaron was turned into a Cobra by God and swallowed up both their Snakes. Exodus 7:10-12.)

3. What is the name of this city?

 Galatians 4:26 “But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.”

4. When John saw the New Jerusalem what was taking place?

 Revelation 21:1-2, 10. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  10. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.”

5. What’s the size of this city, The New Jerusalem?

        Revelation 21:16.  “And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal”

Note: I the height, width, and, length are equal we have a cube right?  A Cube of 12,000 furlongs on all sides. Using 8 furlongs, or each as 1/8th of a mile this city would be 1,500 miles around its perimeter or 375 miles on each side. That’s about the size of the state of Colorado! Now read about God’s promise to Abraham from the sea [Mediterranean] to the great river Euphrates, is  about 375 miles, and NOW put on your thinking cap!

6. How high then are its walls?

 Revelation 21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, a hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.”                                     Note: Using 18 inches as a cubit, means the walls are 216 feet high, thus all dimensions are in proper proportions.

7. What basic materials are used in its building?

The walls are Jasper, The city itself as made principally of highly refined gold. The 12 total gates are each one pearl, 3 per side.  Revelation 21:18-21 “And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. ”                          Revelation 21:19-20 “And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.”

8. What are the names of the gates?

Revelation 21:12 “And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:”

9. What are the names written on the 12 foundations?

 Revelation 21:14 “And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.”

Conclusion:

John speaks in Revelation 21:23,25 and again in 22:5 there will be no night in the city. This does NOT mean the sun and moon will not be there…. Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remaineth, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” (j.b. this was right after the world-wide flood of Noah’s time.) It means that God’s Glory will outshine the sun and the stars, same as now during daylight hours.   Isaiah 24:23 “Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.  Isaiah 30:26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.”

Note: As this city comes down from Heaven onto this earth, THEN CHRIST’s feet will be on this earth for the first time since His ascension, so long ago! That’s when Satan will be released, and the wicked raised, alive but with all the ailments they had at death, then Satan will gather them again to surround the city in his attempt to take by force what he  and all those with him, rejected, when it was offered for free, and eat from the Tree of Life.                                                                                                                                                           Revelation 21:27 “And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”

Never again will sin nor death ever raise their ugly heads again, ever! Hope to see Y O U  there!

Chap.XII. L.# 4. WHO WILL GO TO HEAVEN as per the BIBLE?

  •     SOME people believe that everyone will go to heaven.

 Revelation 22:14-15 “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whore mongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”

(J.B. IF. . .  if all qualify for heaven, then would you still call it heaven?  Meaning look at the news on earth, and now project that same sin filled lifestyles, but add eternity to the mix! How does that fit within God’s Ten Commandments???  It does not! For this reason there are TWO RESURRECTIONS… the First for Christ’s own,  The Second for all those who obey the laws of men!)                                                                                                 Revelation 20:1-6 “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”

(J.B. Note, the 1,000 year time frame, Milli = Greek for one thousand, Annum means years thus MILLENNIUM. This is the amount of time separating the two resurrections. The first are the just the second are all that remain and they shall share the Lake of Fire with Satan and the false teachers, as well as all the unjust.   WHY?

1 Corinthians 15:51-57 “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Note: But . . .   I F . . ..everyone had to go to Heaven, for many it would be the most miserable place to be! (j.b. ever heard  “I’d rather serve in hell for ever, than serve in heaven for one day’?) As many people’s idea of good times, is a wild drinking party, a gambling hall, and dance hall, with many bedroom on the side, all types of vices, and a house of Ill Repute! So they can make heaven into just another earth?   NO WAY JOSE`!

1. So when Christ returns, what kind of people will He take with Him?

Revelation 21:7-8 “He that overcometh (j.b. all sins) shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whore mongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

(J.B.  abominable what did God say this is?                                                                                         The word abomination is used 65 times in the Old Testament of K.J.Bible here’s some of the most abused today……                                                                                                     Leviticus 11:10 “And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:”                                                                                                                  Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. ”     (J.B.  yes some call this hate speech, or bigotry, but how much hate, or love, for that matter, is there in H,I.V? )                                                                                         Deuteronomy 25:16 “For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.”  Deut. 16:5  proud hearts.                                      Proverbs 15:8-9 and 26, please read                                                                                      Isaiah 66:17 “:They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.”                                                                                  Note: How many of us, who call, or think of self, as good Christians, yet still eat pork? The mouse may not be a menu item for most but Pagan Rome people took to fattening them up and eating mice! There are good health reasons for NOT eating dead animals. All flesh had to come from animals killed for their flesh, right? Mad-cow disease, is not gone, but there no “Mad-vegie disease” if they are well washed of contaminates, right?

 Genesis 1:29-31 “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”

(j.b. To whom do Y O U rely on for the proper care and feeding of your new car? Your butcher, or the car’s maker? See the above food list for YOUR Maker’s suggested food list. Please know until sin came to earth in Genesis 3 there was no DEATH for anything living , able to move, on its own.)

2. Who of the righteous have already gone to heaven?

A. Enoch, He never died….. Genesis 5:24 “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.    Hebrews 11:5 “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.”

B. Elijah,   2 Kings 2:11 “And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”

C. Moses,    Jude 1:9 “Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”    Luke 9:28-30 “And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:”

D. All those raised with Jesus’ death.  Matthew 27:50-53 “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.”   Psalms 68:18 “Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.” Plus Ephesians 4:8.                                                                                1 Thessalonians 4:11-18 “And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing. But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

3. To who will citizenship in heaven be granted?

  Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.”                                                                                                                                    Matthew 7:20-23 “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

(j.b. in the following verse, do you read that we are able to pick and chose which commandments we obey? [ yes we do, but then we forfeit life for death, or we confess sin and seek forgiveness] .   Why do I point this out?   Well, simply because Rome changed the times and laws Daniel 7:25, and in the Catechism books, they removed the whole of the 2nd commandment, cut off 3/4 ths. of the fourth and moved it [The Sabbath] from a Holy day of God to a common day of man Sunday the first day of the week!                                                                     Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”                          Revelation 15:1-2 “And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.”

Note: I f you have doubts about what or who is this beast power, read Chapter V lessons 1-5 again, plus chapter VIII and lessons 1-14 and the last lesson 14 asks a Question “How important is obedience?” Do you remember as a child your Mon and Pop, telling you of things you should not do?  Why did they do this beyond the fact THEY LOVE YOU?  [can you say"To keep you safe,  and out of trouble, think you, your Father in Heaven is so much different in this regard?]

Conclusion.

David asks the question: Psalms 24:3 “Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?”                                                                                                Then gives us the answer: Psalms 24:4 “He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.”     Read Ps.15.   We can all prepare for heaven by asking The Father for increased faith, love for all, and the will and strength to be more like Jesus.    1 John 3:2-3 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. “

NEXT: The hoped for future residence for all: “The NEW JERUSALEM”

Thank YOU for your time.

Chap. XII. L.#3. “SILENCE IN HEAVEN”

There is coming a time when there shall be silence in Heaven for one half hour.

 Revelation 8:1 “And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.”                                                                                                 In order to understand when this silence will take place, we must look at John’s prophecy of the seven seals.

1. What did John see in the hand of Him who sat on the Throne of God?                     Revelation 5:1 “And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.”

2. Why did John weep when it appeared no one would open the Book?                       John had been told in .. Revelation 4:1 “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”       So John was afraid the future would not be revealed.

3. Who was able to open the Sealed Book?                                                                                 Revelation 5:5-7 “And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.”                                                       NOTE:  The ONLY One able to open this seal, is Jesus Christ. {(j.b.) Sorry but Buddha, nor Krishna, nor Mohammed are able] as only Jesus is worthy, for it was HE that willingly gave His life, to pay for all sins, and to purchase humanity back from Satan, who gained control over us and earth at the sins of Adam and Eve.   Revelation 3:21 “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”                                                                                                 Note: Revelation 6th chapter covers 2,000 + years of human history. This vision has to do with events that would transpire relative to God’s Church from the time of Christ, on earth, to His return.

4. What was the condition of the church during the time represented by the first Seal?                                                                                                                                                   Revelation 6:1-2 “And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”                                                                                    Note:  Zechariah 10:3 “Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle.”    Thus no surprise that God uses horses to represent the conditions in His Church,. During the first time frame from A.D.31 time of the Cross- to A.D. 100 the Gospel spread quickly and remained white and pure!

5. What happened during the 2nd Seal?                                                                                       Revelation 6:3-4 “And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”                                                                       Note: This was a period of conflict A.D. 100- A.D. 313. Truth began to be mixed with error, from Paganism, thus adulterated, depicted by the changing of color of the horse, to blood red. Because much truth was not followed the sword and bloodshed came to men. Paul spoke of the apostasy in …Acts 20:28-30 “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.”                  Note: It was during this time frame that his fore-telling came to pass.

6. What kind of conditions prevailed during the 3rd Seal period?                                 Revelation 6:5-6 “And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”                                                                                                                                               Note: This was truly a period of error, sorrow,defeat, and moral darkness (A.D. 313- 535 A.D.) Food prices are famine prices, they represent the real famine for the Word of God, and the real truth of God was locked up, and began the Dark Ages of Europe. Traditions began to be placed above the Bible. The State began to interfere with religion, because the church began to control the kings and princes this Church and State became as one. [from 538 A.D to 1798 A.D. the Church ruled W. Europe both during and after the Holy Roman Empire.]                                                                                                                                Ecclesiastes 1:9 “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”    This shall be so , again, in the New World Order, under Sunday Worship Laws! [Read Gen 2:1-3  and Exodus 20: 8-11 about Saturday the Seventh day . Sabbath, in 85 nations, the word for Saturday means REST, in their language, Sabbath is Hebrew for rest! now think Tower of Babel, and God's confusing human language, THINK!]

7.  During the 4th Seal, what was the condition of the Church?

 Revelation 6:7-8 “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”                                                                                                                      NOTE: This is the Church of the Dark Ages (A.D. 538- A.D. 1517) During this time a church-state religion exalted a man to be equal with God. Millions were put to death when they opposed the teachings of the church of this period. [read of this in Foxx's Book of Martyrs @ most large Libraries.]

8. What did John see during the fifth  Seal?

 Revelation 6:9-11 “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”

Note: Who were the souls under the alter?                                                                                              These were those Martyred during the rule of church and State as one power. Were these souls conscious?  NO, not at all. The Prophet here uses a figure of speech known as personification. The first time they are really mentioned as being alive after their martyrdom is after the First Resurrection. …….                                                                         Revelation 20:4-6 “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”

(j.b.  Sorry but not as so many teach, this 1000 years, [earth shall be void and desolate, a "prison" for Satan and the Fallen angels, "Chained by circumstances that he has none to deceive, for this time frame, of no sun, no moon no stars to shine on earth. Satan has this 1,000 years to contemplate all that he lost, while in the darkness and space], and not for mankind’s 2nd chance to get right with God! Nor is there any seven (7) year time frame involved either that seven years of Daniel was split in 1/2– 3.5 yrs from Christ’s Baptism and the start of His ministry to the Cross and His death, the other 3.5 years was up to the stoning of Steven, which Saul/Paul witnessed and held the “stone- thrower’s” robes!)                                                                                                                                                     Note:These are those who were murdered for the same reason Steven was…. for his stand on the Bible and the testimony of Jesus! This during the times A.D 1517- 1755, , as the Reformation began, a change began to take place.

9. To what great event does the sixth Seal extend?

Revelation 6:12-17 “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

Note: The great day of His wrath, is and shall be the Second Advent, Christ’s return, BUT His feet shall not at this time touch earth! That the False One, Satan who passes himself of as Christ, will do in a body we all cam see, and will be on every T.V on earth! [Watch it not lest ye be deceived for he is the "Instead of Christ"! ] This seal is different from the previous, This points to the 1755 “Lisbon  earthquake, one of the biggest ever,. This was followed up by the darkened sun and moon on May 19, 1780 and the falling stars on the night of November 13, 1833, in which many could read a newspaper outside, because of the brightness of millions of meteorites, at once, visible over North America.

10. What portion of the sixth Seal remains unfulfilled?

Revelation 6:14-17 “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

Note: Here, John speaks to the opening of the atmospheric heavens for the coming of Christ, at the 7th Trump,. At His return those who do not believe , and those who have rejected Him, will seek to hide themselves from the presence of God.  Revelation 6:16 “And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:”                                                        These will those of whom Jesus said:  Luke 17:37 “And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.”

 Jeremiah 4:22-27 “For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge. I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger. For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.”

11. Why will there be silence in Heaven for half an hour?

The breaking of the Seventh Seal brings the Second Advent, Heaven will be emptied!        Matthew 25:31 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:”   Luke 9:26 “For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.”

Conclusion:                                                                                                                                          If we consider the one half hour of silence to be Prophetic time this would be about seven days. Heaven would be silent then from the time Christ leaves until He returns with His people. Thus the why of……                         Matthew 24:44 “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. ”                                                                                                                             NOTE (j.b.)   My greatest sadness, and why I do this, is due to the fact, that we have more human beings totally illiterate and may I say , even fully ignorant of the Holy Bible!  All who reject Christ, also reject God the Father of all, and guess what, the Father will grant their wish, life without Him, means life can NOT exist without God, so they perish, forever!

In the end Just before Christ’s Return, Probation will close, and Judgments sealed, thus there shall be but two camps of people!                                                                                           CAMP ONE: Are all who follow, and obey God!                                                               CAMP TWO:  Are all who follow, and obey man’s church edicts.

As it is clearly shown, it IS all about Worship, who do YOU. . . .worship? God or man’s Laws as Sunday worship, Baptism of babies, prayers to the dead, Transubstantiation- [the host-wafer is actually  by the power of the priest, turned into the physical body of Christ on the Cross ]  Hebrews 7:27 ” Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”     Hebrews 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

Two passages showing that there shall be only ONE sacrifice made by Christ Jesus, and not at every Mass! That statement alone, has marked many for death by fire!  AND…..

Ecclesiastes 1:9 “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

Rome shall do this. . .again. . . for she does NOT change, she still claims the power to judge heresy, and what it is, PLUS the right to kill all heretics, yet today in 4/2014! Sadly they claim the “Protest is over”, and Protestantism is dead, sorry Vatican, it is well and alive, wherever the whole Bible is used, and as it is written!                                                        All churches who say, Genesis 1 and faux-science’s Evolution are one of the same, yet they want us to believe, that they themselves believe in the rest of the Holy Bible?

May the Holy Spirit show the the truth of God!

Next: “Who will go to Heaven”?

Chap.XII. L.# 2. THREE HEAVENS.

SOME THINK THERE ARE DIFFERENT PHASES FOR GOD’S REWARD FOR THE RIGHTEOUS.

IF you were to ask the people in Borneo about Heaven, they would point to Kinabalu and say, “Helo, Kinablu.” Helo means way off over there, in the great beyond– Kinabalu where they believe the spirits go.                                                                                                         The Buddhists picture heaven as being a series of steps. You must get to the place where you have no desires.                                                                                                                                  The Hindus have the idea of the transmigration of the soul. At death, according to their belief, a good person goes to a higher form of life whereas a bad person would to into a lower form. A strict Hindu will destroy nothing that lives, not consciously stepping on an ant.

1.  Does the Bible speak of more than one Heaven?

 2 Corinthians 12:2-4 “I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) [ Paul saying he knows not if he was in vision or in his own body]  such a one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.”

Note: Paul is telling of the visions or revelations that God gave him. The vision of the 3RD. Heaven was so real and vivid he didn’t know whether he was transported there bodily or just presented to him in his own mind. Just because he had been shown a glimpse of the glories of heaven was not the most important thing. Paul did not complain about the hard circumstances in his life. He just kept on realizing that there were many things he would have to endure for Jesus Christ.

2. What is the Second Heaven?

 Genesis 1:8, 20. “And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.  20 . “And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.”                                                                                                                               Jeremiah 4:25 “I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.”                                                                                                                                                    Job 38:4 “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.”                                                                                                                                  Job 38:9 “When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,”         (j.b.) swaddling band/cloth put over a new born’s belly button.

Note: Heaven is a real and defined place. The air above us is called the First heaven, where birds and planes fly. The Bible calls it the firmament.     2 Peter 3:10-13 “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”  [ (j.b.) "NEW" earth, will be the same earth, but it's surface will be cleansed and purified by fire, to remove all traces of man and his pollution, before earth becomes the New Eden!]

3. What is the second heaven?

 Psalms 19:1 <> “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handy-work.”                                                              Note: The 2nd heaven is where the sun, moon and stars are.

4. Where is the third Heaven?                                                                                                          The 3RD Heaven is above all the other heavens. Paul said….. Ephesians 4:10 “He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)”   2 Corinthians 12:4 “How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.”  [(j.b.) our words are not  up to the task,to describe it]  1 Corinthians 2:9 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. ”  Luke 23:43 “And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.”  Revelation 2:7 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”  Revelation 22:1-7 “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.”

J.B. Heaven is wherever God the Father is!

5. Is Peter in charge of letting people into Heaven?

There is not one tiny shred of Scripture that can be used as the basis for this human assumption.  Revelation 21:12 “And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: ”   Galatians 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

Romans 9:8 “That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.”

(j.b.) All those who accept Christ as their Personal Savior, and in a loving relationship obey Him are Children of the Promise, made to Abraham..Genesis 22:15-17 “And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea-shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;”

Conclusion.

The Holy Bible. The Word of God, tells us all, that God wants ALL to be with Him in Heaven, but that is all up to the person, within whom the choice is! God is a really Gentleman, in that He’ll not ever force one, to do ANYTHING against their will!                            Therefore, God, will allow anyone . . .  to perish. . . for all life MUST perish. . .if they insist that God is not in their future!                                                                                                         Why is this so?                                                                                                                                     God and Christ, ONLY have Eternal Life Within Themselves, thus when THE Life-force leaves a person, they become a body, a corpse, they are dead! So ALL who do NOT accept nor believe in Him, live ONLY due to His longsuffering patience!                                           Hebrews 5:9 “And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; ”   2 Timothy 4:6-8 “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”                                                                                                        Be willing to fully surrender all, because Your Father in Heaven made all, thus owns all.

Next: “Silence in Heaven”  [why? Heaven is empty, for all occupant are one the way to this earth!  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.”
