151 The 144,000 Singing in Heaven

Revelation 14:1-5 Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.  And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.  These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they kept themselves pure.  They follow the lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among men and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.

Jesus is seen standing up on the 1,265th day because the cleansing of the sanctuary is over, which means the judgment of the world is finished. There are two harvests on earth to reap: the saints that have been sealed with everlasting life and the wicked that will be destroyed. The 144,000 were killed during Satan’s death decree in Revelation 13:15. They were resurrected in the middle of the 1,264th day, just a few hours before this scene, as seen in the previous chapter {Revelation 11:11-12}. Now they are singing to the heavenly audience in the throne room. In seventy more days Jesus comes with the 144,000 and redeems the main harvest and all the sleeping saints back to the time of Adam. Oh, what a day that will be! The 144,000 servant-prophets will return with Jesus in the clouds of heaven to witness the resurrection of all the sleeping saints and the destruction of the wicked. The 144,000 are blameless because their sins have been cast as far as the east is from the west and they will never be mentioned again. They will be treated as though they had never sinned. The millions and millions and hundreds of millions of people will tell the story of their redemption forever to the unfallen worlds.

152 The Declaration of the Seventh Trumpet

The door of mercy has been open for six thousand years. At the end of the 1,260th day of the Great Tribulation, every person is either sealed with the righteousness of Jesus or has accepted the mark of the beast; thus every person made his/her choice to either worship the devil or the Lord our God. The wicked grieved the Holy Spirit by refusing to repent, and killed the 144,000 servant-prophets sent to plead with them. Jesus allows the world to show its hideous character by throwing a party for three and half days to celebrate the death of God’s servants and the absence of the Holy Spirit. In the middle of the 1,264th day the wicked are filled with horror as they witness the resurrection of those they killed and watch them ascending up into the clouds. Then the seventh trumpet sounds legally declaring that the judgment of the world is over.

153 7th Trumpet - Wrath without mercy

The sixth trumpets were the wrath of God mixed with mercy, which legally ends on the 1,265th day. The seventh trumpet terminates the time of mercy. Jesus finished the judgment of the world by the 1,260th day of the Great Tribulation, but before declaring that His kingdom is complete He waits until the 1,265th day to sound the seventh trumpet. Jesus wants the universe to witness the evil behavior of the wicked world before sounding the seventh trumpet. On the 1,265th day the seventh trumpet declares that it is time for God to avenge the saints and the servant-prophets and to reward all His children.  The events of the full wrath of God, the resurrection of the sleeping saints, and saving more than one billion saints scattered all over the world, will occur over the next seventy days.

The story of Daniel and Revelation explains how God shuts this world down mixing mercy with destruction. With the first four trumpets God only destroyed one-third of the world leaving the other two-thirds. When the fifth trumpet is sounded Satan, masquerading as Jesus, is not allowed to kill anyone for five months. At the sixth trumpet Satan is only allowed to kill one-third of the remaining world {the non-religious wicked} and some of the saints. Therefore six trumpets were mixed with mercy. The seventh trumpet declares that the kingdom of Christ is complete, and now it is time to punish the wicked for killing the saints and prophets, and to reward the saints for worshiping God. The seven last plagues are poured out on the wicked without mercy.

155 The 144,000 on the Sea of Glass

The scene on the sea of glass occurs on the 1,265th day. This scene shows the seven angels waiting for the order to begin pouring out the bowls of God’s wrath, and the 144,000 praising God. This is the second scene showing God’s servants after the death decree of Revelation 13:15 and their special resurrection. This is the same event as the 144,000 playing their harps and singing in the presence of the heavenly audience in Revelation 14:1-5. The 144,000 were killed for refusing to worship the image of the beast and to accept the mark of the beast {Revelation 13:15}. They were resurrected in Revelation 11:11-12 and ascended to heaven in the middle of the 1,264th day. The tabernacle of the temple is opened, but there is no one seen interceding for lost souls – why? Every person has made his/her choice for all eternity. There are only two groups of people left in the world – marked and the sealed.  The world’s intercessor is gone because every case has been decided forever; thus judgment of the world is finished. This is the same scene as Revelation 11:19.

To reiterate in a different way, on the 1,265th day the seven angels are seen ready to pour out the final wrath of God on the wicked. Next is the glorious scene of the 144,000 servants-prophets praising God for His righteousness and His judgments upon the Earth; they are the fruitfruits of the harvest shortly to come.

Then the temple of heaven is opened, and God displays the Ten Commandments in the sky for the entire world to see; the Ten Precepts the wicked rejected, despised, and hated. Jesus is not shown in the temple because Jesus has stopped pleading His blood for the sinful world.

Never has God gone to such great lengths to reveal His love and mercy to so many; Jesus has sent more prophets into the world at one time than any other time in history of the world, but they were mostly rejected. The millions of saints that accepted the messages have been martyred along with the 144,000 servant – prophets for bringing the world messages of life and truth – now over the next seventy days the religious wicked pay the price for murdering the saints and the servants of God by suffering the seven last bowls {plagues} of God’s wrath.

157 The Two Harvests

The scene of the Son of Man swinging His sickle over the earth occurs on the 1,265th day. It is the same time period as the seventh trumpet in Revelation 11:15 announcing that the kingdom of Christ is complete.

Revelation 14:14-16 I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one “like the son of man” with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand.  Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, the earth was harvested.”

160 The great winepress of God's wrath

The wicked are harvested by the angels and thrown into the wine press of God’s wrath, which is described by the seven last plagues in Revelation 16:1-21 that lasts seventy days long.

Revelation 14:17-20 Another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the fire, came to the altar and called in a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, “Take your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth’s vine, because its grapes are ripe.” The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and the blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridle for a distance of 1,600 stadia.

In summary, during the first 890 days of the Great Tribulation the 144,000 servant-prophets of God preach the first angel’s message of love and forgiveness. They tell all the inhabitants of the earth to fear God {Jesus} because He is the One who destroyed one-third of the earth and killed nearly two billion people with the first four trumpets. The servants of God warn everyone against the false religious teachings of the global government Babylon, which is the second angel’s message.

Satan makes his physical appearance on the 890th day and shortly thereafter demands the worship of the image of the beast on the penalty of death. The 144,000 preach the third angel’s message warning everyone of the consequence of worshiping the image of the beast and receiving the tattoo of ‘666.’ Those that worship the devil and accept his tattoo of ‘666’ persecute and kill those who worship God.

The saints are identified by keeping God’s commandments including the seventh day Sabbath and have the faith of Jesus; this creates a great contrast between the two groups.  After the time period of the martyrs is over {220 days} there are two groups of people left in the world: those who worship the devil and those who worship God by keeping His commandments. The Jesus is seen harvesting the saints by figuratively swinging His sickle over Earth. The other angel is shown, using analogous language, of harvesting the wicked like grapes and throwing them into the winepress of God’s wrath.

161 The First Three Bowls of Wrath - 1,265th Day

The bowls of God’s wrath are in direct response to the behavior of the wicked in both deed and time. God punishes the wicked for persecuting the saints, accepting the mark of the beast, choosing death instead of life, and discarding the weekly cycle of seven days.

The wicked worshipped the image of the beast and accepted the mark of the beast; thus showing their loyalty to the devil as their god. Every person in the world knew that ‘666’ was an evil number, but in spite of this fact and the warning of the third angel’s message {Revelation 14:9-11} over two billion people accepted the mark. The wicked dishonored the divinely appointed weekly cycle of seven days ending on Sabbath day for the Satanic ten-day week. 

Satan, masquerading as God on Earth, appeared as an angel of light. He mesmerized the masses with his supernatural powers, performing many signs and miracles, even bringing fire down from heaven in the plain site of men. Hundreds of millions of people worshipped him by doing his bidding of killing millions of innocent people who refused to worship him.

Just before the first bowl of wrath the Ten Commandments are displayed to the entire world that the wicked despised. This event has at least two purposes: first the wicked see the Ten Commandments of God that they hate, which condemns them to eternal death. The living saints see the commandments they love as a mirror of Jesus. The saints know they are sinners, but they repented and were forgiven.

Every person is born an enemy of God because we are all born carnal. The difference between a wicked person and a saint are the choices each person makes – we all have free will. The people that repented and forsook their sins were forgiven; therefore the Bible calls them saints.  The people who love sin and refused to give up lying, stealing, committing adultery, and dishonoring the seventh day Sabbath etc. are condemned by their own choices – they are the wicked. Each person is lost or saved by the choices they make. There is really only one choice any person has and that is to choose Jesus as your Savior. The saints keep the commandments to show their love for Jesus – not to be saved.

In summary, Jesus punishes the wicked corporately and individually.  All the wicked made their choice to accept the tattoo of the mark of the beast. The wicked chose marks so God gives sores for the mark of the beast. The wicked chose death instead of life so all the wicked suffer from the oceans turned to blood of dead men. By killing the oceans Jesus terminates life on Earth because the seas produce eighty percent of the oxygen to the world. And the stink of the dead sea-life must be horrible.

Jesus punishes the wicked individually by giving them blood to drink for those that killed the prophets and the saints; therefore not everyone is punished the same. Each person reaps what he sowed.

Jesus punishes the wicked corporately for honoring the ten-day week in place of the seven-day weekly cycle that was ordained in the Garden of Eden.  Jesus unmasked Satan, masquerading as God, by allowing him to oppose the weekly of seven days with the ten-day week; and Satan’s demand for his subjects to be tattooed with ‘666.’ Both of these demands of Satan, masquerading as God, on Earth were a dead giveaway that he was the devil; thus the wicked are without excuse.

The wicked honored the ten-day week so Jesus gives the wicked a bowl of wrath every ten days for different sins they committed. The wicked reap what they sow. Each of the seven plagues is ten days long equaling seventy days. While the wicked are suffering a week {seven} of the ten-day bowls of wrath, the saints are observing ten, seven-day weeks ending on the Sabbath. And the last ten days and the last seven days both end on Sabbath with the Second Coming of Jesus on the 1,335th day.

Jesus punishes the wicked individually by giving them blood to drink for those that killed the prophets and the saints; therefore not everyone is punished the same. Each person reaps what he sowed.

Jesus punishes the wicked corporately for honoring the ten-day week in place of the seven-day weekly cycle that was ordained in the Garden of Eden.  Jesus unmasked Satan, masquerading as God, by allowing him to oppose the weekly of seven days with the ten-day week; and Satan’s demand for his subjects to be tattooed with ‘666.’ Both of these demands of Satan, masquerading as God, on Earth were a dead giveaway that he was the devil; thus the wicked are without excuse.

The wicked honored the ten-day week so Jesus gives the wicked a bowl of wrath every ten days for different sins they committed. The wicked reap what they sow. Each of the seven plagues is ten days long equaling seventy days. While the wicked are suffering a week {seven} of the ten-day bowls of wrath, the saints are observing ten, seven-day weeks ending on the Sabbath. And the last ten days and the last seven days both end on Sabbath with the Second Coming of Jesus on the 1,335th day.

166 The Abomination of Desolation & the Fourth Bowl

Daniel 12:11 ‘From the time that the daily sacrifice  [supplied] is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.

The abomination of desolation occurs on the 1,290th day is the second world wide decree. The wicked are suffering terribly from sores, dead oceans, and blood for water; so they look to Satan, their god, for the solution to their suffering. After the first four trumpets the wicked persecuted the saints for refusing to obey the religious laws of the leopard-like beast and things got better, so they thought. Now, the wicked believe the saints, that keep the commandments of God, including the seventh day
Sabbath, is the cause of all their suffering.

Again to reiterate, the setting up of the abomination of desolation is the second world wide decree. It is an abomination to God to allow His righteous people to be murdered with no redemptive value.

The five days after ‘setting up’ of the death decree Jesus stops the wicked from pursuing the saints. This is the time of Jacob’s trouble for the saints. The wicked turn up the heat on the saints by hunting them; so Jesus turns up the heat on the wicked to stop them. At this point in time Satan is unmasked by force for the wicked. The wicked are forced to acknowledge that the God of Heaven is controlling the plagues; so they acknowledge God by cursing Him. The wicked blasphemed the Holy Spirit by the 1,260th day; therefore they only have evil thoughts.

Revelation 16:8, 9 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.

169 The Fifth Bowl, Darkness for Light - The 1,305th Day

Revelation 16:10-11 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. Men gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.

The fifth bowl of God’s wrath is poured out on the throne of the leopard-like beast on the 1,305th day of the Great Tribulation. The leaders of the crisis government rejected the Word of God and the testimony of God’s servants for the traditions of men during the time of the first four trumpets. When Satan appeared on the 890th day, masquerading as God on Earth, they worship him as God. The masses of the people and the leaders were spell bound by Satan’s supernatural appearance. They rejected the light of truth because of the many signs and miracles Satan was able to perform. The power of the Holy Spirit came with such power that it tormented the leaders, but they preferred darkness to the light of the truth. The light of the truth unmasked Satan during the fifth and sixth trumpet as a torturer, liar, and murderer, but the wicked preferred Satan’s lies to the truth.  When Satan and his followers were unmasked by the light of truth, they flew into a rage killing the 144,000 just like the Pharisees that killed Stephen in Acts 7:51-60; so God gives them darkness. The wicked have done everything their god has demanded, but their suffering is worse than ever, therefore Satan is unmasked by force. Satan’s leaders see their god is the devil himself, so they curse the God of Heaven because of their suffering.

The Unmasking of Satan

1. Satan, masquerading as Jesus, was unmasked when he opposed all religions of the world {2 Thessalonians 2:4}

2. Satan was unmasked when he ordered the leopard-like beast {global crisis government} of Revelation 13:1-2 to discard the ancient religions {Daniel 8:10}.

3. Satan was unmasked when he ordered the setting up of his One World Religion called the image of the beast {Revelation 13:14-15}.

4. Satan was unmasked when he ordered the tattoo of ‘666’ on everyone’s right hand {Revelation 13:15-18}.

5. Satan was unmasked when he demanded the death decree for those who refused to worship the image of the beast and accept the mark of the beast {Revelation 13:15}.

6. Satan was unmasked when he stopped people from buying and selling without the tattoo of ‘666’ on their right hand.

7. Satan was unmasked when he discarded the weekly cycle of seven days and established the ten-day week as he did during the French Revolution in 1789 {2 Thessalonians 2:4, Revelation 16:2-21}.

170 Preparation for Armageddon, Satan's Kingdom Collapses - 6th Bowl - 1,315th Day

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East.

Jesus had previously unmasked Satan by revealing him as a torturer, liar, and murderer during the fifth and sixth trumpets, but the wicked loves lies and hate the truth; so they were willfully deceived by Satan. But now the wicked are forced to see through Satan’s mask because of their suffering. The wicked complied with every demand of Satan, their god, including being tattooed with ‘666’ and murdering millions of saints. Now the wicked see their god cannot stop their terrible suffering; therefore they withdraw their support from Satan into depression – they have been willfully deceived. The wicked curse God for there is no love in their hearts – they reflect Satan’s image.

Satan has lost the support of the people so he turns to the ten kings of the Earth and their armies that he made rich. Satan catches the ten kings with a pack of lies. Like frogs catch their prey. The kings agree to fight God – their only hope of surviving is to kill the God that is causing all their suffering.  The ten kings join Satan, knowing that they are serving the devil, to make war against Almighty God. The kings see Satan as a god because of the signs and miracles he performs in their presence. They believe this is a war of the gods – their god fighting God.

In summary, the wicked see their god, Satan, is unable to stop their suffering, so then by the 1,315th day Satan has lost the worship and support of his kingdom that is over two billion people. Satan knows the Kings of the East {Jesus and His Father} are coming to destroy him. Therefore Satan and his demons go out to gather the kings of the Earth that he made rich during the Great Tribulation. Satan convinces the kings with a pack of lies and miracles, such as calling fire down from heaven and turning blood into water, to join him. They realize their only hope of survival is to fight God. The kings know they are serving the devil, but their armies declare war against God. This war is Armageddon.

The warning of the parenthetical remark of Revelation 16:15 seems to be out of place because the warning Jesus gives is sixty-five days after the judgment of the world is finished; thus everyone’s eternal destiny was set in stone by the end of the 1,260th day.

Revelation 16:15 “Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

Jesus is saying to those of us who study prophecy. ‘Look at the suffering of these foolish people! They loved the lies and now they have lost eternal life forever; so don’t make the mistake of these foolish people.’ Obviously the warning has no meaning for those that have not read the warning, and it does not apply to the wicked after the 1,260th days that are lost.

177 The Seventh Bowl & Armageddon

Revelation 16:17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!”

The seventh bowl begins on the 1,325th day; it is God’s response to Satan’s and the kings of the Earth’s declaration of war against God. The seventh bowl is ten days long ending on the 1,335th day at the Second Coming of Jesus. There are several scenes – some scenes are on Earth and others are in Heaven. There is a massive earthquake, the sun turns black, the moon to blood, the stars of burning sulfur smash the cities of Babylon, and Jesus wakes the sleeping saints to eternal life.

Six Scenes of the Seventh Bowl

1.  Revelation 16:16-21 is the seventh bowl. The massive global earthquake causes mountains and islands to disappear. Then there is a great hailstorm of burning sulfur smashing the cities of Babylon and the Second Coming of Jesus. There is no ice storm in Revelation’s story.

2.  Revelation 18:8-24 shows Babylon burning. The kings and the merchants are standing afar off, watching and wailing, as they see their treasures go up in smoke; thus life on Earth as we know it is finished.

3.Revelation 14:9-11 is the third angel’s message. Everyone was warned just before the 1,040th day not to worship the image of the beast or accept the tattoo of ‘666’ on the penalty of being tormented with burning sulfur.

4.Revelation 19: 1-6 is a heavenly scene of the 144,000 so loudly praising God for their salvation, and God avenging their deaths, that John describes the praise as a roar. And the servants of God are so excited in their anticipation of accompanying Jesus back to Earth in the Second Coming, they are about to split at the seams.

5.Revelation 19:11-21 to 20:6 describes the fury of God’s wrath and the first resurrection of the dead. The whole scene is an analogy of Jesus riding His white horse while stomping on the wicked trading the winepress of His wrath. There is so much blood that it reaches the bridles of His horse and it splatters on Him. The vesture of Jesus dipping with blood {the analogy of Revelation 14:16-20}.  The kings of the Earth, with their armies, are gathered to fight God, and they are destroyed. Satan, unmasked, is called the false prophet. He is thrown into the lake of fire along with the leaders of Babylon. About two and a half billion wicked are killed by the sword coming out of His mouth {the Word of God} and by the brightness of His Coming. The birds gorge themselves on the dead bodies of the wicked. Satan is cast back into the prison of the Abyss, to wait on death row for a thousand years; this is the first resurrection of the saints back to the time of Adam.

6. Revelation 6:12-17: the sixth seal is the Second Coming of Jesus. The sun turns black, the moon is blood red, burning stars falls to Earth; this is the Second Coming of Jesus.

178 Babylon Burns, the Seventh Bowl - 1,325th Day to 1,335th Day

Revelation 18:8 Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. “When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: “’Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come!’ “The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore.”

The scene of Babylon burning is the time of the seventh bowl beginning on the 1,325th day. The massive earthquake and the sulfur bombs weighing fifty to one hundred pounds burns Babylon down.  This is the response to the declaration of war by Satan and the ten kings during the sixth bowl. The burning of Babylon is the end of the world as we know it. The kings cry and wail over Babylon going up in smoke.

In summary, the ten kings go to war against God to save their great wealth. They know their god, Satan, masquerading as God, on earth is a fraud. This is why John no longer calls Satan ‘the lamb-like beast’ {Revelation 13:11} that masqueraded as Jesus – now John calls Satan the false prophet in Revelation 16:13. The ten kings know Satan is the devil, but Satan convinces the ten kings to join him in his war against God by putting on a supernatural show, with many miraculous signs including changing blood into water. The ten kings are persuaded by a pack of lies from Satan that their only hope of survival is to kill God.

Absurd isn’t it! The war of Armageddon is between the devil with the kings of the earth and their armies against Almighty God. God responds to their declaration of war with a hailstorm of burning sulfur bombs that destroys the great city of Babylon, and the cities all over the world. On the 1,335th day King Jesus appears in all His glory with His Father the King in the clouds of Heaven. The ten kings cry out for the rocks and mountains to bury them and hide them from the face of God. The wicked are consumed by the glory of God. The birds gorge themselves on the flesh of the ten kings and the wicked. Cities, houses, and businesses all over the world are in rubble and life on Earth as we know it is over – Babylon is in ashes.

179 The Torment of the Wicked - 1,325th Day to 1,335th Day

Revelation 9-11 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured out full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day of night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name.”

The torment of the wicked by burning sulfur begins sometime after the 1,325th day and ends on the 1,335th day of the Great Tribulation.  Everyone was warned not to worship the image of the beast. Then Satan, masquerading as Jesus, ordered the death of everyone refusing to worship the image of the beast, beginning on the 1,040th day {Revelation 13:15}. All those who worshipped the image of the beast and accepted the tattoo of ‘666’ are tormented day and night with burning sulfur, until they are destroyed on the 1,335th day at the Second Coming of Jesus.

The first lake of fire is formed by the storm of burning hail described in the two previous chapters. The first lake of fire is a living nightmare for the wicked. These people have made many jokes and laughed about hell – saying, ‘If I go to hell I’ll have a lot of friends there, but nobody is laughing now. The wicked were taught by their ministers the false doctrine of everlasting hell fire. Now they believe God is going to cast them into this lake if fire to scream in agony forever – this is their picture of God {horrible isn’t it}.  Their mental agony is absolutely horrible – this is their torment.  Of course what they believe is a lie. But they don’t know it! As the sulfur bombs smash their homes and businesses the wicked run this way and that way to escape the fires and the tremendous heat. The wicked would like to rest, they would like a drink of cool water, and they would like to escape the terror by sleeping. They hated the Sabbath of the fourth commandment and refused to honor God by resting and studying the Word of God on the Sabbath day.  Now they have no rest day or night from their torment that goes up day and night forever. The torment of the wicked last forever because the wicked are tormented right up until the Second Coming of Jesus, which is their death.

Revelation 22:14-15 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates of the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

180 The 144,000 Shouting Praises to God

Revelation 19:1, 2 After this I heard what sounded like a roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for true and just are his judgments.

While Babylon burns during the ten days of the seventh bowl between the 1,325th and the 1,335 day, John’s eyes are lifted to a heavenly scene of the 144,000 servant-prophets praising God for avenging their deaths. God’s servants are so excited they are about ready to split at the seams. In less than ten days they will accompany Jesus in the clouds of Heaven at the Second Coming to witness the resurrection of the sleeping saints back to the time of Adam and Eve.

In summary, in Revelation 19:1-6 John’s eyes are lifted from the horror of cities being burned all over the Earth to the scene of the 144,000 servant-prophets praising God. They are so excited they are ready to burst with joy. They have waited their entire lives to see Jesus, and now they see Him face to face {Revelation 14:1-5}. They have waited to receive eternal life, and now it’s their forever. They praise God for His righteous judgments against the great whore that killed them for their testimony to the Word of God. Yes, God avenges the death of His servant – He avenges the blood the religious wicked spilled. But as if it were not enough – they are so excited in their anticipation of accompanying Jesus back to Earth in the next few days, that their joy and praise sound like a roar. They are going to follow Jesus back to Earth in the clouds of Heaven to witness the death of the wicked, and the first resurrection of the sleeping saints from all parts of the Earth back to the time of Adam.

Daniel 12:1-2 At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people – everyone whose name is found written in the book – will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake; some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.

181 The Winepress of God's Wrath

Revelation 19:11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war.

Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Revelation 19: 17-18 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; so you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great.

This scene of the Second Coming of Jesus on the 1,335th day focuses on the wrath of God more than anything else.  Revelation 19:11 to 21 describe the fury of God stomping the wicked and casting the leaders of Babylon and Satan into the first lake of fire. Satan is cast into the lake of fire and his physical body that he appeared in to deceive the world, masquerading as God on Earth. The religious wicked, that received the mark of the beast, are destroyed by the brightness of Christ’s appearance and His voice. The voice of Jesus that wakes up the sleeping saints to everlasting life simultaneously kills the remaining wicked. Jesus shows His contempt for the wicked by calling the birds to the supper of God. The corpses of the wicked are supper for the birds, and the saints are the bride of Christ, invited to the wedding supper in Heaven.

Then John sees an angel coming down from Heaven and locking up the dragon. The word dragon is used to describe Satan in the spirit world of demons. Satan, the false prophet, lost his physical body that he masqueraded in as God on Earth, in the first lake of fire. Now the devil is again locked up in the prison of the Abyss again, but the language of Revelation 20:1 to 20:3 tells us that Jesus has locked him up in high security. Now that the subjects of Satan’s kingdom are all dead, Satan has no one to tempt or destroy. If Satan was not chained to prison walls of the Abyss, he would leave the dead world of Earth and fly to millions of unfallen worlds in an attempt to continue his war against God by perpetuating sin. The fear of Satan gaining sympathy from just one being somewhere in the universe would fill the universe with such a constant state of anxiety during the thousand years, that there would be no peace anywhere in the universe. Therefore Jesus is assuring us that Satan is chained to the desolate Earth in the prison of the Abyss.

The hours and days that Satan waits on death row will seem like forever to him. During the thousand years he is surrounded by his kingdom of death. There is nothing for him to do but think about all the people he has hurt by tempting them into sin. Satan will suffer terribly as he waits minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, year by year, century by century contemplating the debt he owes for his high treason against God during the last six thousand years.  The waiting and anticipating the suffering of being destroyed in the lake of fire is worse than death itself.

Matthew 25: 41-46 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.  For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ “They will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick in prison, and did not help you?’ “He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do it for me.’ Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

The fire is eternal because after the wicked, the devil, and his angels are burned up to ashes, the end lasts forever. God is not a monster torturing the devil and the wicked for endless ages. God is love – He destroys the devil and the wicked to get rid of sin and death.

184 The seven religious heads & the eighth head which is Satan the false prophet were burned alive in burning sulfur at the Second Coming of Jesus

When all the specifications concerning the leopard-like beast are assembled, Babylon is not too hard to identify. Babylon will be a monster-sized church-state. Babylon will rule over the nations with deadly power. It will persecute and devour those who oppose it. At first, the seven heads (the seven religious systems of the world) will control the leopard-like beast. I understand that the pope will be selected as the leader of Babylon and he will lead the world in appeasing God (actually blaspheming God) until the devil appears in the fifth trumpet. At the sixth trumpet, the devil will suddenly abolish the seven religions of the world and put ten kings in their place. Lucifer will assign these ten kings the task of rebuilding the infrastructures of Earth. The devil will demand the reconstruction of the world for the pseudo-purpose of establishing the kingdom of God and bringing in a thousand years of peace. Of course, this demand is a big lie. The devil will establish ten kings because he wants these kings to try to destroy Jesus at the Second Coming (perhaps by nuclear arms). It is reasonable to assume that labor camps will be set up and everyone will be forced into hard labor. Slavery will be imposed as a form of punishment. Civil authorities will punish those who refuse to work and obey.  The devil will kill most of his opposition (a third of mankind) and rule the world as “Almighty God” without significant opposition for almost a year. It is easy to see how the leopard-like beast mirrors its ancient namesake, the great city of Babylon, whose temporary splendor was created through years of forced labor and destroyed by God in a single night.  On the 1,335th day of the Great Tribulation, the devil, masquerading as God, along with his entire evil host and the seven religious heads and the religious wicked will be thrown into the lake of fire at the Second Coming of Jesus.

185 The Wrath of the Lamb, the Sixth Seal

Revelation 6:16-17 They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”

The last ten days of God’s wrath begins on the 1,325th day and ends on the 1,335th day with the Second Coming of Jesus. It is important that the student understands that these scenes, for the most part, occur simultaneously during the last ten days of the world’s history.

The seventh bowl begins on the 1,325th day as the response of Jesus to the declaration of Satan and the kings to make war against God. Jesus answers their arrogant declaration of war with a massive earthquake that causes mountains and islands to disappear, followed by a storm of burning firebombs smashing and incinerating the cities of Babylon all over the world. The kings of the Earth stand afar off wailing and casting dust on their heads as they see all their stuff go up in smoke. Those that worshipped the image of the beast and accepted the tattoo of ‘666’ on their right hand are filled with terror {tormented} as their cities and homes burst into flames {Revelation 14:9-11}.

As the smoke goes up to Heaven the 144,000 are praising God with such intensity that their voices sound like a roar {Revelation 19:1-6}. They are praising God for His salvation and for avenging their deaths. And the servants of God are also excited with the anticipation of following Jesus back to Earth in the Second Coming.

Then on the 1,335th day in Revelation 19:11-21 Jesus leaves Heaven on His white horse accompanied by the 144,000 on their white horses. Jesus is seen stomping on the wicked as He treads the winepress of His wrath. Why is His vesture dripping in blood? As Jesus stomps on the wicked in the fury of His wrath the blood of the wicked splatters all over His clothing, just like stomping grapes in a winepress with blood that is so deep it reaches the horse’s bridle {Revelation 14:17-20}. The scene is an analogy. The name of Jesus is unknown because anyone that knows Jesus is saying, ‘Who is the One stomping on the wicked with such fury?’ look at the description of Jesus! Revelation 19:12-13 ‘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.’ Do you see the paradox? Verse 12 says no one knows his name but himself, and with the next breath in verse 13 His name is the Word of God; therefore we know the person is Jesus. Most of us see God as long suffering and merciful never losing His cool, but here Jesus is executing the judgment with a vengeance by stomping on the wicked. Then, after Jesus kills the wicked by speaking the Word of God, He calls the birds to gorge themselves on the flesh of the wicked to show contempt for their arrogant rebellion. And if this isn’t enough, as the wicked are dying by hearing the Word of God, the sleeping saints are simultaneously resurrected by the Word of God.

In Revelation 6:12-17 Jesus opens the sixth seal showing His displeasure against the wicked by a series of events that are parallel to the seventh bowl/plague. The earthquake of the sixth seal is the same as the earthquake of the seventh bowl. God is saying to the wicked by the following events: you liked darkness instead of light – the sun is black. You liked to shed innocent blood – the moon turns to blood.

You persecuted the saints and worshipped the image of the beast accepting the tattoo of ‘666’ –so thousands of stars of burning sulfur fall to Earth tormenting you and incinerating the cities of Babylon. The next scene is the kings of the Earth crying for the rocks and mountains to bury them hide them from the face of Jesus- for the Lamb of God is very angry. Where is their arrogance now?  Revelation 6:16 – ‘They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the lamb! God represents Jesus by a lamb because the lamb is a quiet, meek, and gentle farm animal, but here the Lamb of God is behaving completely out of character – the Lamb is very angry, just like the rider on the white horse in Revelation 19:11.

The student needs to understand that these five scenes showing God’s wrath is the reward of those that rebel against God. These scenes of judgment should discourage anyone that is living a life style of sin and rebellion. In all these scenes there is not a kind word for those that rebel against God.

Revelation 22:11-15 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.

186 The Wrath of the Lamb occurs sometime after the 1,325th day

187 Seventh Millennium - Questions, Forgiveness, and Judgment

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them.

Corinthians 6:2-3 Do you know that the saints will judge the world... Do you know that we will judge angels?

By the end of the 1,335th day Jesus has awakened all the sleeping saints from the time of Adam, and they have been caught up in the clouds of Heaven, with the great multitude that no man can number, to live with the Lord forever more. More than two billion wicked people who worshipped the devil by accepting the mark of the beast are all dead.

At the beginning of the seventh millennium Satan is cast back into the prison of the Abyss to wait for his destruction. Because the wicked are all dead and the saints have been taken to Heaven there is no one to tempt, lie to, or murder; thus Satan is bored, and would leave if possible. He would go anywhere to get away from Earth.  He would go to the nations of millions of unfallen worlds looking for sympathy for the purpose of perpetuating sin on other world, but he is unable to leave Earth.

During the next thousand years the saints determine the just restitution of punishment for the sins the wicked committed while living. Then at the end of the seventh millennium Jesus will wake up all the wicked, dead people to be sentenced to death. They will suffer before they die, to pay the just restitution for their sins they committed against God and their fellow humans.  Some people will die instantly in the lake of fire, others will suffer much longer until justice is satisfied. After suffering is finished they will be reduced to ashes – this is the second death, which is eternal death.

188 The Great White Throne Scene & The Seventh Seal

Revelation 20:11-12 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 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.

Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:8-9 ‘And [Satan] shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for battle; In number they are like the sand of the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves…

Revelation 20:9-10 But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown.

Shortly after Satan is released at the end of the seventh millennium the great white throne scene appears. The language of the Earth and the sky fleeing from God’s presence is analogous language. This language is used to describe a scene that is so awesome that it goes beyond the ability of human language. The entire judgment scene is a supernatural event that stops Satan and his army in their tracks.  During the half hour God supernaturally talks to every wicked person as though he were the only person in the world. {The judgment of the saints was finished on the 1,260th day of the Great Tribulation; this judgment scene only applies to the wicked}. God explains to each person as though he were the only person on Earth, everything He did to save them. But each person chose, by his own free will, the life of sin and death instead of eternal life. Each wicked person sees all the people God sent to turn them from their evil ways. Each person remembers the voice of the Holy Spirit begging them to give up sin, but each person refused. Every person understands he/she is lost by their own choice.

In summary, at the end of the seventh millennium Satan is released from his prison of the Abyss. He deceives the wicked again because they have always listened to him.  The wicked begin their attack on the New Jerusalem of God, but the Lord stops the attack by the supernatural event of the great white throne scene. Jesus removes the last seal on the Book of Life and the entire universe sees that God saw every detail before creation began. They see that God did not use His power to control the outcome of who would be saved or lost. God is worshipped by the entire universe including Satan, his evil angels, the saints, the angels, and millions of unfallen worlds. Then the devil and the wicked are cast into the lake of fire and burned to ashes. Jesus then creates a new Heaven and a new Earth where the saints will live in peace forever.

193 A New Heaven and a New Earth

Revelation 21:1 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 [no more sea of fire]. And I John saw the holy city, the New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Isaiah 66:22-23 As the new heavens and the new earth that I will make endure before me,” declares the Lord, “so will your name and descendants endure. From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the Lord.

The new Earth will be the everlasting home of the redeemed, fulfilling the prophecy of Jesus that the meek “shall inherit the Earth” (Matthew 5:5).  See psalm 37:11.

Here will be your home through all the ages to come. Consider now the wonderful things the Bible says about it.

1.  It will be a real home. Not some ethereal, vaporous cloud where disembodied spirits roam, but a real home for real people. (Isaiah 65:21)

2.  It will be a beautiful home. There will be no vast badlands, no dreamy deserts, and no great wastes of water. Instead the whole globe will resemble Eden in its primeval loveliness. (Isaiah 35:1, 2)

3.  It will be a peaceful home. It will never know war or strife of any kind. No rival powers will struggle for supremacy. There will be but one nation, one language, one King. All will be at peace with one another and with God. The golden rule will never be forgotten and purest love will motivate every word and deed.  (Zephaniah 3:9; Isaiah 65:25)

4.  It will be a happy home.  Everybody will be satisfied with all that God has so bountifully provided. No word of grumbling or discontent will ever be heard.  There will be no sin or sinners, nor will anyone have a single evil thought. And because there will be no sin, there will be no death. So there will be no more parting, no more saying good-by. Families once broken by death, but reunited at the resurrection, will revel in joyous fellowship forever and ever. (Zephaniah 3:13; Revelation 21:4)

5.  It will be a healthy home. Consequently there will be no hospitals or doctors. All who suffered from sickness or disease in the past will be completely restored.  “the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. (Isaiah 35:5, 6; Revelation 22:2)

6.  It will be a glorious home.  When John saw the New Jerusalem coming down from Heaven he said it looked like a jewel, “having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal” (Revelation 21:11).

7.  It will be God’s home.  “The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it” (Revelation 22:3). Transcending every other joy of the redeemed will be the continual presence of Jesus. And nothing in all the glory land will afford such enduring happiness as this. Golden streets, pearly gates, beautiful homes, exquisite scenery, would indeed afford little lasting satisfaction without this priceless privilege.

And your Bible, your precious Bible, which tells you all these wonderful things, will be our guide and stay each passing day till Jesus comes to take us home.

194 The End Understated

When Jesus stands up, the judgment of the world that began in 1844 has legally ended. Jesus has done everything possible to save every person without violating anyone’s freedom of choice. There is no reason for a single person to be lost because Jesus paid the price for every person’s salvation.

Jesus began the Great Tribulation by shocking the world into the realization that He is shutting the world down by sending the first four trumpets. This act of judgment kills twenty-five percent of the world’s population. The death of nearly two billion people is an act of love – the removal of the bad apples from the bunch is done in order to maximize the number of people He will save. If Jesus had left the bad apples in the bunch to give them more time, they would have destroyed many others by their evil influence and still been lost themselves.

About two and half years into the Great Tribulation most of the people have shrugged off the warning of the first four trumpets, so Jesus sounds the fifth trumpet sending the wicked their god. Jesus unmasks Satan, masquerading as Jesus, as the devil during the fifth and sixth trumpets that lasts a little more than a year. Satan is unmasked by his lies for those that love the truth. Satan is further unmasked by demanding that all the ancient religions of the world be discarded including the seven-day weekly cycle – this eliminates all worship to God further unmasking Satan as the antichrist. During Satan’s reign he tortures, deceives, lies, and kills one-third more of the world’s population and hundreds of millions of saints. Jesus sent Satan to unmask him as a last ditch effort to glean His last few deceived children. But in spite of all Satan’s hideous deeds about two and half billion people accept the tattoo of ‘666,’ making up Satan’s kingdom. Towards the end of the sixth trumpet on the 1,260th day the judgment of the world is finished – everyone has made his/her choice. There is nothing more God can do to save anyone without raping the free will of the wicked. There are two groups in the world: the wicked tattooed with ‘666,’ and the saints sealed with eternal life.

The wicked celebrate by killing God’s servant - prophets the 144,000 by throwing a party. Jesus interrupts the party on the 1,264th day by resurrecting His servant – prophets and taking them to Heaven in full view of the wicked and the remaining saints. Jesus punishes the wicked for seventy days with sores, dead oceans, blood for water, scorching heat, painful darkness, the collapse of Satan’s kingdom, and sulfur bombs smashing the cities of Babylon globally or Armageddon. Jesus comes in the clouds of Heaven on the 1,335th day, killing the remaining wicked by the brightness of His coming. He wakes up the sleeping saints, back to the time of Adam, and simultaneously, the resurrected saints and the living saints go to Heaven with Jesus.

During the next thousand years the saints ask Jesus millions of questions. Uriah forgives King David for stealing his wife, and the saints decide on the punishment for their lost relatives according to the laws of Moses. Jesus and all the saints return to Earth at the end of the seventh millennium and God wakes up the wicked. Jesus supernaturally spends a half hour {the seventh seal} explaining to each person everything He did to save them. Satan, his demons, and the wicked acknowledge that God is just. Satan again deceives the wicked - the wicked, as the sands of the sea, attack the Beloved City of the New Jerusalem, and fire comes down out of Heaven and burns them to ashes. Some suffer longer than others according to their sins. The fire burns out and Jesus creates a new Heaven and a new Earth where everyone worships their Creator, the Lord God, and loves each other according to the laws of love that is written on each person’s heart – the Ten Commandments including the seventh day Sabbath.

Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.”

195 One thousand Years later

196 Worship of God Eternal Security

John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

Apocalyptic prophecy reveals God’s foreknowledge of sin into the universe before creation, and God’s plan to save His children from eternal death. It reveals that God foresaw all the days of every person’s life before they were created or born. Prophecy reveals that even though God foresaw the evil acts of Hitler and the good choices of Sister Teresa, He did not interfere with the choices of either person. Prophecy shows the great contrast between the selfless life of Sister Teresa and the evil life of Hitler. One person responded to the voice of the Holy Spirit and the other grieved the voice of the Holy Spirit following their carnal natures. The very fact that Hitler was very evil and Sister Teresa was very good proves that God did not interfere with their free will even though He foresaw every day of their lives before they were born. In other words, God’s foreknowledge is the proof that we have free will. If man had God’s foreknowledge He would have killed Hitler at birth.

Apocalyptic prophecy reveals the all-together lovely character of God and His Son Jesus Christ. It begins counting time from Babylon in 605 B.C. to the end of the seventh millennium plus about a half hour and yet looks backwards before the creation of the world.  Prophecy reveals that Jesus finishes sealing the last person with eternal life by the 1,260th day of the Great Tribulation by writing God’s law of love on each person’s heart that was given so freely to Adam. During the sealing Jesus removes the carnal nature from each person’s heart that was inherited by Adam’s fall. Prophecy reveals the true happiness only exists and continues with the love of Jesus abiding in each person’s heart by the Holy Spirit living in each person’s heart.  The Holy Spirit empowers each person to always make the right choice, leaving each person with the freedom of choice and their own individual personality – this is a miracle of God. Happiness and the freedom of choice is eternally secured by worshiping God, by keeping His Commandments, by continually looking to the crucified and risen Savior.

Prophecy reveals the Eternal God has always existed, and is an unfathomable mystery to created beings forever. It reveals that God loves us beyond our comprehension and will go to great lengths to save us. God knows we are all different, but He knows how to speak to each of us no matter how stubborn and rebellious some of us are. The suffering, sorrow, and death of hundreds of millions of people described in the story causes some people to repent, others to disbelieve, others to ignore, and some to hate God. God has taken a big chance of being easily misunderstood by exercising love. If we could see the future as God does we would be overwhelmed by grief and filled with unspeakable joy at the same time; then we would praise God for the suffering during the Great Tribulation.  The Tribulation is like sending your loved one beautiful roses, knowing all the time that they have thorns. We accept thorns because of the magnificent beauty of the rose, with the full knowledge of the pain the thorns can bring.

The subject of God is so enormous that human beings don’t even begin to scratch the surface of the subject. The story of prophecy reveals that God can only accept love that flows from each heart freely like water running down a hill. It reveals that God desired a very large family that would love Him because of the goodness of life that freely flows from Him to every being in the universe.

God saw the rebellion of Lucifer that became the devil before he was created, and He foresaw that no matter what He did for Lucifer he would never repent from his evil ways. And God created man in His own image knowing that he would sin. He saw the deceitfulness of sin and how attractive sin would be to the human heart; so God sent His Son to condemn sin in the flesh that all of us might be delivered from its power. God knew the universe would never understand that He was not a tyrant unless He allowed Lucifer and those that followed him to rebel, revealing the kingdom of sin and death to the entire universe. Only by looking to the birth, the life, the suffering, the death, and the resurrection of Jesus do we have eternal security.

Prophecy shows us that God is love. And even though He knows everything before it happens, we have freedom of choice. It shows us that the only way we can be happy is to keep the Ten Commandments by the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in our hearts. God wants us to be happy, so the infinite Almighty God became our brother. Yes, the infinite God became a little baby that needed His diaper to be changed – what infinite unspeakable love. He subjected Himself to finite humanity to redeem us. He became our brother forever and then died in our place because He loves us so much. And because He understands us, the Father appointed Jesus to be our Judge. When Jesus comes into the clouds of Heaven He saves the righteous and destroys the wicked by the same Word in which He created all things.

197 Price of Redemption

When we think of the price of redemption, Christ’s sacrifice was altogether voluntary. “Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28).

Jesus said, “No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again.  This command I received from my Father” (John 10:18).

“Our Savior Jesus Christ,” said Paul, “gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity” (Titus 2:13, 14).

“He offered up himself” (Hebrew 7:27).

He “gave himself a ransom for all” (1Timothy 2:6).

“He gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father” (Galatians 1:4).

Here indeed was perfect love, made manifest by an act of utter self-surrender and submission, the willing yielding up of life that others might live.

What the incarnation cost God the Father we shall never know. How much it meant for God the Son to die for the human race must also remain a mystery. Even the angels do not understand it; and it will be the theme of endless discussion and wonderment through all eternity (1 Peter 1:11, 12).  Nevertheless the results are clear. God “hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2 Corinthians 5:21). 

“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us” (Galatians 3:13).

“He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed… The Lord hath laid on him the iniquities of us all” (Isaiah 53:5, 6).

What awfulness of suffering this bearing of sin brought upon the Son of God we shall never know, but it reached the ultimate limit because of the utter perfection of His character.

Upon Him who came from God, with mind attuned to that of His Holy Father, and with all the delicate sensitiveness of a perfect character, fell the terrible impact of the penalty of sin. No wonder we read in the Scriptures that we have been bought “with a price” (1 Corinthians 6:20). What a price!

Only perfect love, in the heart of the Eternal Lover, could have devised a plan of salvation such as this and endured so much to carry it through to its consummation.

Trying to bring home to the people of Philippi the stupendous nature of the divine sacrifice, the apostle Paul wrote this sublimely beautiful description:  “Though he was in the form of God, [Jesus] did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking on the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:6-11).

198 Judgment Seat of Christ

The first phase of judgment of the dead has been going on since 1844; with Jesus has our High Priest in the heavenly sanctuary. The second phase is the judgment of the living and it begins when the censer is cast down and the Great Tribulation begins. The 144,000 will announce the judgment bar of Christ. They will cry out, “… Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.” (Revelation 14:7, italics mine)

The judgment of the living is unlike the judgment of the dead in several ways. First, the judgment of the living does not require a complete review of a person’s life. The judgment of the living will be based on our response to the Two Witnesses. Here is how it works: Jesus is going to test the faith of the living. (1 Corinthians 3:13; Revelation 3:10) All that matters to Jesus is our response to His Two Witnesses. At the end of the 1,260 days, the judgments of the living will end because every person will have either the seal of God or the mark of the beast by that time. If a person should die during the Great Tribulation before he receives the seal of God or the mark of the beast, he will be judged just like those who have previously died. Because many people will die before they are sealed or receive the mark of the beast, the judgment of the dead continues uninterrupted after the judgment of the living begins.

The second difference between the judgment of the dead and the living is that the judgment of the living involves a four step process. When the censer is cast down, everyone on Earth will participate in “Step One” even though they may not live long enough to complete all four steps. Some people will go through these four steps faster than others. The first people to be judged and receive the seal of God will be the 144,000. They are sealed just before the Great Tribulation begins. (Revelation 7:1-4) They are the first fruits of the end time harvest. (Revelation 14:4) After the 144,000 are sealed and empowered, the censer will be cast down and the four steps will begin. They are rather easy to understand.

Step One – The Law of God Proclaimed: When the censer is cast down. The 144,000 will go to work. The Holy Spirit will empower them to preach the law of God as a witness to all nations. (Matthew 24:14)

God’s law operates like a plumb line. God’s law defines the truth and in so doing, it destroys lies and deception. Noting is more wonderful than the light of truth to those who love truth.  During the Great Tribulation, God’s Word will be given unusual power to cut people “to the heart.”

Step Two – Holy Spirit Discomfort: God’s law makes no sense without the enlightenment of His Spirit! “The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.”(1 Corinthians 2:14)

God’s law will be proclaimed throughout the world with Holy Spirit power.  The distinction between truth and error, good and evil, will be made so plain that young people will even be able to understand the difference.  Conviction will fall upon the honest in heart and painful decisions will be required. The social consequences for following Jesus will be severe. (John 16:1-3) The Holy Spirit will sufficiently “pressure” each person to choose the right and refuse the wrong. (See Joshua 24:15 and Hebrews 3:7-19.) Socially and culturally speaking, the situation will be difficult.

Step Three – Your Final Decision: During the judgment of the living, three forces will be working together. The Word of God will be heard by everyone. Then, the Holy Spirit will apply great pressure within every heart to obey God’s law, and last, persecution will force everyone into making a decision. At first you might think that the Two Witnesses are pulling people toward the shores of salvation and persecution is driving them away, but it is not what you think! Those who love God and His law will receive the testimony of the Holy Spirit. They are willing to accept persecution because they are committed to pleasing God at any cost. On the other hand, those who love their lives and possessions more than God will not be able to take the heat and accept the suffering that comes with their decision.  “The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” (John 12:25) “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.” (Matthew 19:29)

Step Four – the Seal and the Tattoo: Every person who surrenders to the law of God and the Holy Spirit will fall in line with the testimony of Jesus. After choosing to obey Jesus without regard for the consequences, each person will be given the strength and faith to pass any test which persecution might impose. The fires of persecution will refine and purify the faith of the saints. “… I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’” (Zechariah 13:9) It is ironic after losing everything he owns, each faithful person will then lose the carnal nature!

The sealing of the saints requires the testimony of the Two Witnesses. The law of God will serve like a plumb line. It will measure the actions John Doe. Jesus will see what John did , in fact, submit to God’s law. John will demonstrate his love for Jesus and his neighbor. The Holy Spirit will testify that John’s faith was thoroughly tested and he loves God with all his heart, mind and soul, and his neighbor as himself.  The Testimony of these Two Witnesses will establish the fact that loves God and man. Jesus will announce His judgment: “Seal John Doe! Set him free from sin’s curse. Give him a white robe.

Those who reject the law of God and the prompting of the Holy Spirit will become more rebellious and hard hearted as time passes. Eventually, everyone in this crowd will commit the unpardonable sin. God’s plumb line will measure their rebellion and the Holy Spirit will confirm the blasphemy of each person.  To save their possessions and themselves from death, the wicked will eventually submit to wearing the mark of the beast – a tattoo which Lucifer will impose on mankind during the sixth trumpet.  After everyone has been sealed or tattooed, the judgment of the living will come to an end and the influence of the Two Witnesses will disappear. Their work and influence is finished.

“Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss [Lucifer] will attack them, and overpower them and kill them… The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these tow prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.” (Revelation 11:7, 10, italics and insertion mine)

199 Second Coming of Jesus

A summary of events culminating up to the Second Coming of Jesus. The seven bowls will begin shortly after God reveals the Ark of the Covenant in the sky and last for about 75 days. The seven bowls will be progressively destructive and will end with Jesus appearing in the clouds of glory. Jesus will kill the wicked by a command that comes out of His mouth. Only the saints who remain will survive that awesome day. The seven last plagues will be a horrible payback for the wicked. The seven last plagues contain God’s wrath without mercy – God’s wrath full strength. God will repay the wicked at the same level of cruelty they demonstrated towards God’s people during the Great Tribulation. Compare the seven trumpets with the seven bowls:

Trumpets                                               Bowls

1. Fiery hail                                   1.Terrible sores

2. Asteroid impact (Sea)                 2. Sea turns to blood

3. Asteroid impact (Continent)         3. Springs of water                                                                    turns blood

4. Darkness (Volcano’s)                  4. Sun scorches people                                                                   w/fire                                       

5. Devil appears                            5. Satan’s kingdom plunged into                                                                   darkness

6. Devil conquers world                   6. Armageddon

7. Close of mercy                          7. Second Coming / Great fiery hail                                                                   stones    

Remember, these seven plagues do not affect God’s people. “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes the punishment of the wicked.” (Psalm 91:7,8)

Three points need to be made:

1.  Some of the seven bowls are somewhat similar to the destruction caused by the seven trumpets. For example, a third of the sea turn to blood during the second trumpet, but all of the sea turns to blood during the second bowl. Perhaps God designed the trumpets as harbingers of things to come. In other words, even though the trumpets are sounded with mercy, God uses the trumpets to warn the human race with seven physical evidence of what He intends to do during the seven bowls, a time when there is no mercy! Remember, God spares two-thirds of Earth during the time period of the seven trumpets, but He annihilates the entire world with burning sulfur at the end of the seven bowls.

2.  Notice the turn of events. The fifth trumpet marks the physical appearance of Satan claiming to be God and the fifth bowl marks the exposure of the devil for who he really is. When Jesus pours out the fifth plague upon the throne of the devil, the world will see that this creature, who claims to be God, is not really God – for God would not destroy His own throne! (See Revelation 16:10, 11.) The light of truth will shine brightly, and the deception of sin will be removed. The religious and political leaders of the world will realize they have been worshiping the ancient enemy of God. This realization starts a domino-like collapse of Babylon. John says, “The beast [Babylon] and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute [the image or the one world church/state]. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.” (Revelation 17:16)

3.  In a final attempt to control collapsing kingdom, Satan will rally the world one last time and send powerful demons to encourage the ten kings he chose to rule over Earth. These demons will lead the kings of the Earth to do two things. First, to destroy the saints. Second, they will unite to wage war on Jesus when He appears in the clouds. Notice what John says of these demons, “They are the spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty… Then they gathered the kings together to the place in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” (Revelation 16:14, 16)

Here is the scenario: After God unmasks the devil in the fifth bowl, the devil’s empire will begin to disintegrate. The religious and political leaders of Babylon will recognize they have been duped into worshiping the devil. Then, the cloud will appear in the sky – the sign of Christ’s return. “At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky and all the nations of the earth will mourn.” (Matthew 24:30, italics mine) When the kings of the Earth see the sign in the sky, they will tremble. The devil preys on their anxiety and will invite them to join him in a two pronged attack. He insists they can kill the remaining saints at an appointed hour and then attack Jesus as He draws near the Earth.  (Once again, truth is stranger than fiction.) To convince the kings of Earth this is their last chance to save themselves from destruction, the devil sends them three powerful demons to help persuade them. “They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.” (Revelation 16:14) When the kings of the Earth see the miracle working powers of these three demons, the leaders will be compelled to trust their power and will agree to join forces with the devil. (What choice do they really have?) They will make plans to destroy the people Jesus is coming to save and ultimately to kill Jesus Himself. If you think that is far-fetched that men would try to kill God, remember the cross. If you think it is far-fetched that angels would war against an omnipotent God, consider Lucifer’s expulsion from Heaven.  When sin is allowed to reach its vilest maturity, it will seek to destroy God. Sinners would attempt to kill God (if they could) if pushed to worship Him! This is why God has to completely eliminate sin from the universe. Sin is a cancer from which there is no recovery – except through the “born again” experience.

200 Jesus Christ - King of Kings & Lord of Lords

When a person tries to explain all about Jesus Christ and His beautiful character, it’s like a diamond with millions of facets, colors with deep fire and total perfection.

The Holy Spirit will give a person a deep understanding about Jesus character by studying the five essential Bible truths (I call them the five S’s):

S alvation through faith in Jesus Christ

God’s seventh day Sabbath rest

Parallel Sanctuaries

The State of man in death

The circumstances and events surrounding the Second Coming

Each of these doctrines centers on the generous ministry of Jesus Christ. As we begin to understand the depth of God’s plans, it leads the sincere in heart toward a greater appreciation for Jesus. First, I want to exalt my Savior, Jesus. Even though I continue to learn more about Him every day, my desire is to share a number of wonderful things I have gleaned from Scripture. No one compares to Jesus. He rightfully deserves to be called, “The Alpha and The Omega.” He is the most awesome being in the whole universe. Second, these prophetic pictures and paragraphs was written and shown to help the Bible students grasp the importance of prophetic Bible study. The prophecies of Daniel and Revelation are an advanced area of study and a harmonious understanding of the prophecies and pictures requires a solid foundation of the five essential truths presented on this site.

For example, Revelation 8:5 mentions the “casting down of the censer” at the golden altar. To understand what this means, we need to understand it within the context of services being conducted in Heaven’s temple at the Altar of Incense. Since information about services conducted at the heavenly Altar of Incense does not exist in the Bible, we must turn to the parallels and patterns between the heavenly and the earthy sanctuaries. As we examine the ministry conducted at the Altar of Incense on Earth, it helps us to understand the significance of casting down the censer at the heavenly altar.

“Future telling” is not the primary purpose of Bible prophecy. Bible prophecy does involve a study of future events, but not in the way most people assume. Bible prophecy covers a number of topics that believers should want to understand. Ultimately, Bible prophecy reveals how Jesus will resolve all of the problems cause by sin. He will eventually destroy the wicked, both humans and angels. Earth itself is so contaminated with sin that purification by fire is required! The Godhead has been dealing with the sin problem for a long time and they will bring the drama to a close as planned – and this is where apocalyptic prophecy comes into focus.

Unfortunately, the elimination of sin also involves destroying human beings that Jesus deeply loves. The deliberate and final destruction of fallen angels and fallen human beings must be done within a framework of justice and mercy that every survivor can understand. Throughout eternity, the drama if sin wil be reviewed and discussed by men and angels. Of course, after the drama is over, God’s children will have a host of records to examine which will disclose the whole truth about sin and God’s behavior. (1 Corinthians 6:1-4, Revelation 20:4) But, we are presently living before the drama of sin has been brought to a close. So, God has given us who live before the drama comes to a close, an opportunity to understand the sweeping outline of how the sin problem will be resolved. By giving this information to us in advance, our understanding of what he must do to the human race during the Great Tribulation makes sense.

If the balance between God’s eternal justice and His unlimited love to save man is not the central theme when studying Bible prophecy, then it is robbed of its sanctifying value, because human beings can do nothing to prevent the things God has determined to do. At the present time, one man says this about Revelation and another says that, so no one can determine the truth. This is about to change. When the Great Tribulation begins, God will make sure all people will see and hear His truth. He will empower 144,000 spokespersons all over the world and they will speak with authority, as did Moses and Elijah.

For now, we must accept by faith that God is unbelievably generous in His grace and His government is based on the equitable rule of law based on love. God’s laws are not righteous because He declares them to be righteous. God’s laws are righteous and fair because the evidence will show that sin’s drama has ended, His laws will have been proven to be righteous! The eternal well-being of His creatures is God’s first and highest concern. As I come to understand His profound love for sinners, I conclude that, “Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and Last, the Beginning and End. He is the Engineer of everything and the Creator of all creations. He is the Architect of the universe, the Prince of Kindness and the Prince of Peace. But for a few hours in the tomb, He is eternal. He has no beginning and He is alive forever more. He is unmoved, unchanged, undefeated, and never undone. He was bruised but He brought healing. He was pierced but He eased pain. He was persecuted but He brought freedom. He was put to death but He brought life. He is risen and He brings power to those who believe in Him. The world cannot understand Him, the armies of Earth cannot defeat Him, the schools of men cannot explain Him, and the leaders of nations cannot ignore Him. Herod could not kill Him, the Pharisees could not confuse Him, and crowds could not get enough of Him. Pilate could not hold Him in the tomb. Caesars could not silence His followers, traditions cannot replace Him, and modern science cannot explain Him. He is the way, the truth light, the bread of life, perfect love and Lord of Lords. He is goodness, kindness and gentleness. He is God, He is the angel of the Lord and He is man. He is holy, righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure. His ways are right, His word is eternal, His will is unchanging, and His expansive thoughts include me. He is my Redeemer and Savior. He is my guide and my peace. He is my joy and my comfort, He is my Lord and He rules over my life. I serve Him because His bond of love, His burden is light, and His objective for me is abundant life. I follow Him because He is the source of truth, the owner of wisdom and all knowledge. He is love. He is sovereign over the kings of the Earth, the Ruler of rulers, the Leader of leaders, the Model for overcomers. If His qualifications seem impressive, His demonstration of love is even greater. He desires a wonderful relationship with every human being. If I obediently submit to His call, He will never leave me, forsake me, mislead me, forget me, overlook me, or ignore my prayers.  When I fall, He lifts me up. When I fail, He forgives me. When I am weak, He is strong, when I am lost, He knows the way. When I am afraid, He gives me courage. When I stumble, He steadies me.  When I am hurt, He heals me. When I am broken, He mends me. When I am blind, He leads me. When I am hungry, He feeds me. When I face trials, He assures me. When I face persecution, He sustains me. When I face problems, He comforts me. When I endure loss, He provides for me. When I face the shadow of death, He gives me grace. He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time, and in every way. He is Almighty God, He is faithful and trustworthy. I am His, and He is mine.”(Variations of this statement have been circulated on the internet.  I have added a number of statements that spring from my discoveries. Originating author is unknown.)
