The braking of the seven seals;
the sounding of the Seven Trumpets the third Woe
 
the seven plagues/seven bowls of the wrath of GOD.
 
Revelation 19:1-6
After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying,
“Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God;
BECAUSE HIS JUDGMENTS ARE TRUE AND RIGHTEOUS; for He has judged the great harlot who was corrupting the earth with her immorality, and HE HAS AVENGED THE BLOOD OF HIS BOND-SERVANTS ON HER.”
And a second time they said, “Hallelujah! HER SMOKE RISES UP FOREVER AND EVER.”
And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sits on the throne saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!”
And a voice came from the throne, saying, “Give praise to our God, all you His bond-servants, you who fear Him, the small and the great.”
Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.
 
Revelation 19:7-8
“Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.”
It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
 
 
[[ for years i have heard the bride of Christ is the Church, mentioned in a way that leaves the impression that if you attended regularly and call yourself an Christian you are a part of the bride of Christ.
Totally by-stepping statements made in the bible like “His bride has made herself ready.” As the bride of Christ, we are to
 
2Titus 2:15-16
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness
 
1 Thessalonians 2
For we never came with flattering speech, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—God is witness—nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from others.
We please God because we have been approved.
 
Jesus spoke of two men who went into the temple looking for God’s approval. The first man said a long prayer, listing all the things he had accomplished. The second man because he knew his life fell way short of what God requires of man. the second man prayed: “God, be merciful to me, a sinner.”
Jesus tells us the second man went home justified / approved by God.
 
The approval of God is not earned but rather received. It does not come to you on the basis of your merit, but rather by the mercy of Christ.
A life of ministry does not flow from the attempt to win the approval of God. It comes and flows in our lives from the joy of receiving the approval of God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
 
Our approval comes only through or from what Christ has done for us on the cross,
But it is our choice to except it or not.
If we can really grasp that then we will freely give our lives to Christ, turn our backs on the world for our approval.
Problem is so many who attend church have still not accepted that reality, and are still driving to gain man’s expectance and approval.
Having to have the big house, shiny car, name brand clothing, and on and on grasping for acceptance form the world/ the created rather than from the creator.  ]]
 
I have been told that I put too much on each posting and that no one wants to spend the time on one subject at a time,,,,,,,,,,, my response;
If you can’t take the time to be in the word of GOD then walk away, but remember this, where you spend your time is where your heart will be, you can not serve two masters for you will love the one and despise the other.
It is so much simpler to love the world when it is patting you on the back, and keeping the blinders over your eyes. ]]
 
[[   2 Timothy 2:14-19
Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.
But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness, and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, men who have gone astray from the truth saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and they upset the faith of some.
Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”  ]]
 
Revelation 19: 9-10
Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.”
Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he *said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
 
Revelation 19: 11-16
And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.
His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself.
He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.
From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.
And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
 
 
[[  the appearance of Christ is going to be rather amazing, seeing the one the Christ who is Faithful and True, the one who in His righteousness will judges and wages war against the ungodly ones of this world.
Hopefully this is the one you are waiting for keeping yourself faithful and truthful to His commandments, saying daily Come Lord Jesus Come.
Over the years I have known those who have said “I hope the Lord doesn’t come till next year” Or a variation of that tomorrow, next week, next month or until this or that happens. But in reality, what they are saying is (I love this world more then I love the Lord Jesus. For any time you put something between you and the return of Christ this is what you are saying.
As believers in and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ we are to live as if He will not return soon but at the same time each moment of each day, say Come quickly Lord Jesus, Come quickly” Willing at any moment to be removed from this world.  ]]
 
Revelation 19: 17-21
Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, “Come, assemble for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great.”
And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.
 
And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.
And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.
 
 
[[  if you read the book of GOD the bible you will know that the Lord Jesus Christ has already defeated the evil and the evil one.
The doom and the defeat of the Beast and False Prophet were sealed at the resurrection of Christ Jesus, who now sets at the right hand of Father God.  ]]

The braking of the seven seals;
the sounding of the Seven Trumpets the third Woe
 
the seven plagues/seven bowls of the wrath of GOD.
 
Revelation 15:1-7
Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels who had seven plagues, which are the last, because in them the wrath of God is finished.
And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God.
 
 
[[ “and those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name”
Those who did not take the mark of the or the number of his name, nor worshiped the image of the beast, those who stand strong in the Lord Jesus Christ and are Faithful to His commandments,
Do you remember this:
Revelation 2:10
“Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, so that you will be tested, and you will have tribulation for ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”
Those who are faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ will be standing with the Lord singing the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb. ]]
 
 
And they sang the song of Moses, the bond-servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
 
“Great and marvelous are Your works,
O Lord God, the Almighty;
Righteous and true are Your ways,
King of the nations!
Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name?
For You alone are holy; For ALL THE NATIONS WILL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE YOU, FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUS ACTS HAVE BEEN REVEALED.”
 
Revelation 15:5-8
After these things I looked, and the temple of the tabernacle of testimony in heaven was opened, and the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple, clothed in linen, clean and bright, and girded around their chests with golden sashes.
Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power; and no one was able to enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.
 
Bowls of Wrath:
Revelation 16:1-21
Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God.”
 
First bowl:
So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth; and it became a loathsome and malignant sore on the people who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image.
 
Second bowl:
The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood like that of a dead man; and every living thing in the sea died.
 
Third bowl:
Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters saying,
“Righteous are You, who are and who were, O Holy One, because You judged these things; for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink.
They deserve it.”
And I heard the altar saying, “Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.” Forth bowl; The fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun, and it was given to it to scorch men with fire. Men were scorched with fierce heat; and they blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues, and they did not repent so as to give Him glory.
 
Fifth bowl:
Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed their tongues because of pain, and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores; and they did not repent of their deeds.
 
Sixth bowl:
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east.
 
Armageddon
Revelation 16:13-16
And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs; for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty.
(“Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.”)
And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon.
 
[[ “Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.”
The NIV Bible stats it this way;
“Look, I will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me, who keep their clothing ready so they will not have to walk around naked and ashamed.” The Lord will come at a time no one expects, several times He has told up things like
“Lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Look to the heavens, keep watch, be diligent, and more, these are warnings that we need to be paying attention to what is going on around us being prepared at all times for His return.
Jesus tells up no man knows the day or the hour of His return, but by looking at the words in the bible and paying attention to what is going on in the world, it seems we can come close to the year.
All I can say is: Lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. What it truly comes down to; either you will be ready or you wont, and that choice is yours. ]]
 
 
Revelation 16:17
The Seventh Bowl of Wrath:
“Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, “It is done.”
And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty.
The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nation’s fell. Babylon the great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath.
And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
And huge hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, came down from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, because its plague was extremely severe.”
 
 
[[ the wrath of GOD, something to keep in mind if you are on this earth when the beast and the image of the beast are demanding to be praised and that mankind has to worship them and take their mark.
Would it really be worth denying the Lord Jesus Christ for a few moments of relief from the beast, so that you can take part when the bowls of the wrath of GOD are poured out????
Something to take in to consideration, think about. ]]
 
 
Revelation 17 and 18, you can read,
i will hit the high lights the Holy Spirit pointed out to me
 
Revelation 17:3 and 9-10 and 12-13 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying,
“Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality.”
 
(( 3: And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. ))
 
 
The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery,
“BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly.
And the angel said to me, “Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and [fn]go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come.
(( 9-10: Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. ))
 
“The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction.
 
(( 12-13: “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour.
These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. ))
 
Revelation 17:14-18
“These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” And he said to me,
The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire. 
For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled.
The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.
 
Revelation 18:1-3
After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory.
And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.
“For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”
 
Revelation 18:4-5
I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
 
 
[[ key point here; we are told, “come out of her, my people” those who are followers of Christ are to come out of the world ways, (turning to the Lord Jesus Christ repenting of your sins and turning your back on your old way of life, Come out of her,)
We are to be in the world but yet not part of the world, not taking part in the ways of the world “come out of her”.
If we do not separate our ways from the ways of the world’s ways, we will continue participating in the ways of the world, which is sin, and then will also participate in its plagues. We have been warned. ]]
 
 
Rev 18:6-8 “
"Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her.
To the degree that she glorified herself and lived sensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘I SIT as A QUEEN AND I AM NOT A WIDOW, and will never see mourning.’
For this reason in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong.
 
Revelation 18:9-10
“And the kings of the earth, who committed acts of immorality and lived sensuously with her, will weep and lament over her when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance because of the fear of her torment, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’
 
Revelation 18:11
“And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more— cargoes of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and bronze and iron and marble, and cinnamon and spice and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and slaves and human lives.
The fruit you long for has gone from you, and all things that were luxurious and splendid have passed away from you and men will no longer find them. The merchants of these things, who became rich from her, will stand at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, she who was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls; for in one hour such great wealth has been laid waste!’ And every shipmaster and every passenger and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea, stood at a distance, and were crying out as they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What city is like the great city?’
And they threw dust on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea became rich by her wealth, for in one hour she has been laid waste!’
Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you saints and apostles and prophets, because God has pronounced judgment for you against her.”
 
 
[[ for those who do not walk away from the world and its ways will have great lose and regrets,
The question is how much of the world and its ways are in you, how much of the worldly things have more value to you then the love of Christ.
Where do you spend your time where is your focus on the things of this world or on growing your relationship with Christ?
If the things of this world have more value to you then your relationship with Christ you need to rethink things.
for where your treasures are there also will be your heart!  ]]
 
 
Revelation 18:21-24
Then a strong angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down with violence, and will not be found any longer.
And the sound of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters will not be heard in you any longer; and no craftsman of any craft will be found in you any longer; and the sound of a mill will not be heard in you any longer; and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery.
And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”
 
 
[[  “because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery.
And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”
Are you being deceived by the world’s ways?
Is the merchandise of the world more valuable to you then to follow the commandment of Jesus?
Where will you stand in the day of the Lord?  ]]

The braking of the seven seals; the sounding of the Seven Trumpets the third Woe
 
The sounding of the seventh Trumpet continued
 
Recap of Revelation 12
So far after the angel sounds the seventh trumpet we have seen, A sing in heaven of s woman that gives birth to a son who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; who was taken up to GOD and His throne.
Then there was the appearance in heaven of the dragon (satan) tat sweep away a third of the stars and throw them to the earth.
Next, we read that Michael and His angels were waging war with the dragon and his angels. They are defeated and the dragon known as the devil and satan along with his angels were all thrown down to the earth.
 
In Revelation 12:10
We learned that there will be a loud voice in heaven, that will say, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God, day and night.
 
Then in Revelation 12:11
We find that because of the blood of the Lamb, the crucifixion of Christ and His word the testimony of the believers, those who love the Lord Jesus Christ and not love their life even when faced with death.
We see that the dragon, (who is the devil – satan) is overcome (defeated)
 
At that because the dragon knows he has but a short time, he will persecute Israel for it was Israel who gave birth to the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
Revelation 12:11
“For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”
 
But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she *was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood.
But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth.
So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
 
The dragon (satan) will wage war against all who have kept the commandments of GOD.
 
 
[[   we have not reached this point in time yet. We still have some time, and need to take the time given us to strengthen our fait in Christ Jesus, not leaning on our own understanding but rathe asking the Holy Spirit to teach us and guild us to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
For only by having a personal relationship with Him can we survive the on slot the dragon (satsn) will throw upon the earth and the followers of Christ.
This is the time to find and understand what the Lord had done for you, to grasp the salvation
He is offering, and to grasp hold of the fact that faith in Christ is your only protection from that on slot of wrath.
Several time it is stated “faithful un to death”
Do you think you will be faithful to Christ when threated to be killed?
It is sad to me that so many people who clam to be a Christian, a follower of Christ, that have not grasped hold of what Jesus has said.
Tings like
The Father knows what you have need of,
I will never leave you nor forsake you.
I will be with you even unto death.
And more statements like these.
 
If we put our lives in the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ, putting ALL our faith in Him, Turning our backs to the world and its ways, constantly facing towards Christ and only depending on Him and His grace, listening closely to the Spirit of GOD; the Holy Spirit who has been given to those who have excepted the forgiveness of Christ.
 
If so we will understand that the dragon (satan) can do nothing to us except kill the body, he can not send us to hell, only Jesus has the authority.
And as a believer in and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, with our faith firmly planted in Him we have nothing to fear but fear its self.
Christ is our refuge and strength, this world is not our home, so who hold so tightly to it    ]]
 
 
Then we saw the beast from the sea and the beast from the earth and the image of the beast, and the damage they will inflict on the people of the earth.
And came to the point of believers in Christ will not being able to buy or sell anything without having the number or name of the beast on their right hand or forehead. Better to die of starvation then to cower and give in to satan.
 
OH but wait in Matthew Jesus stated your heavenly Father knows you have need of food and He will take care of your needs, “I will never leave you nor forsake you”
 
Why is it so many would rather worry then to put our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and Father GOD??????
So many say I know God will provide , but then turn right around and strive to get what they want.
Rather then to set back and wait upon e the Lord?
 
Ok on to Revelation 14 Revelation 14:1-5
Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads.
And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased from the earth.
These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb. And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless.
 
 
[[   Jesus and the 144,000, Jesus standing on Mount Zion and the 144,000 with Him, the 144,000 are ones who have followed the Lamb of GOD, Jesus, where ever He goes. They are purchased from among men and are considered as first fruit to GOD and the Lamb, the 144,000 have not lied, nor have any lie in them. they are blameless.   ]]
 
 
Revelation 14:6-8
And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; and he said with a loud voice, “Fear God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters.”
 
And another angel, a second one, followed, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who has made all the nations drink of the wine of the passion of her immorality.”
 
 
[[   the forgiveness of the Lord is so great and vast, even after all that has taken place the Lord GOD sends an angel to give the earth another chance to turn to Him another warning of the coming of His judgment and wrath on those who do not follow the Lord Jesus Christ and His commandments, shows He is a loving caring but yet just GOD. And we are to be like Him.   ]]
 
Revelation 14:9-13
Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will 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 goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.
 
And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, “Write, ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on!’” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “so that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow with them.”
 
 
[[   there is so much concern about when the believers will be taken out of this world and to Heaven to be with the Lord, this puts thing in perspective, it really doesn’t matter when, the thing is will you be ready.
“” Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on!””
“”so that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow with them.””
This says it all:
Being in the Lord is what is important, not your income, your house, your status in your community or the world, not your stuff and things, NO it is bring in s relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ that is the most important thing you can have.
So that you can make it in to heaven to be with Him and rest.  ]]
 
 
Revelation 14:14-16
Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand.
And another angel came out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe.”
Then He who sat on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped.
 
Revelation 14:17-20
And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe.”
So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God.
And the wine press was trodden outside the city, and blood came out from the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles, for a distance of two hundred miles.
 
 
[[   a lot has taken place to this point, Now we see the reaping of the earth but actually two reaping’s take place. The first s simple and quick gathering a bloody one.
Revelation 19:11-15
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.
His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.
From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.
And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
 
(( From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. ))
 
 
[[   aging it doesn’t matter when the Lord returns, what does matter is if you are ready for His return.
Even if it were posable to know the day or even the hour of His return you don’t know the time you will breathe your last breath,
The reality of this life is we do not know either of these and at any moment your last breath could leave your body and this life is over and you will be looking at eternity.
The question is where will you spend eternity heaven or hell?
 
Next time we will be looking at Revelation 15:1
“Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels who had seven plagues, which are the last, because in them the wrath of God is finished” The seven plagues, the final wrath of GOD.
 
See you in a few days,
take time to get in to the word ask the Holy Spirit to teach you, invest in your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

The braking of the seven seals; the sounding of the Seven Trumpets the third Woe
 
The sounding of the seventh Trumpet
Going to change gears here and break this down (segment this) in to events as they are shown.
 
Revelation 11:15-19
Then the seventh angel sounded;
   1. and there were loud voices in heaven, saying,
“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.”
   2. And the twenty-four elders, who sit on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, “We give You thanks, O Lord God, the Almighty, who are and who were, because You have taken Your great power and have begun to reign.
   3. And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time came for the dead to be judged, and the time to reward Your bond-servants the prophets and the saints and those who fear Your name, the small and the great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth.”
 
Revelation 12:1-2
   4. A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; and she was with child; and she cried out, being in labor and in pain to give birth.
 
Revelation 12:3-4
   5. Then another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.
   6. And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.
 
Revelation 12:5-6
   7. And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to His throne.
   8. Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
 
[[ is interesting that the same amount of time that has been given the nations that will tread underfoot the outer court of the temple of GOD; forty-two months, 42 months = 3 ½ years. Revelation 11:2
And that the two witnesses will be prophesying for twelve hundred and sixty days, 1,260 days = 3 ½ years. Revelation 11:3
one thousand two hundred and sixty days = 3 ½ years Revelation 12:6
and in Revelation 13:5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. 42 months = 3 ½ years. ]]
 
 
Revelation 12:7-12
   9. And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. The dragon and his angels waged war, and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven.
   10. And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
   11. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God, day and night.
   12. “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”
 
Revelation 12:13-17
   13. “And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.
   14. But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
   15. And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood.
   16. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth.
   17. So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.”
 
 
[[ So, we have two signs appearing in heaven;
The woman and the Dragon (satan)
She gives birth; toa son who is rule all nations with a rod of iron,
And He is caught up to GOD to His throne
Then the woman flees into the wilderness, to a place prepared by GOD to be taken care of for 1,260 days
Then Michael and his angels wage war with the dragon (satan) and his angels
 
And they were removed from heaven;
And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
 
Here is an important part;
And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.
 
For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. "Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”
 
When the dragon (satan) sees he has been thrown down to earth he the dragon (satan) tries to destroy the woman who had appeared and given birth to a son and the earth saves her, he (satan) was enraged with the woman, and goes and makes war with the rest of her children, (those who keep the commandments of GOD and hold to the testimony of Jesus.) ]]
 
 
Revelation 13 and 14
The dragon (satan) stands on the seashore, and a beast comes up out of the sea and the dragon (satan) gives him (the beast) his power and his throne and great authority.
And the whole world is amazed with him and followed after him (the beast).
They worship the beast (satan) and they worship the beast because they think he is strong and mighty.
 
Revelation 13:5-6 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him.
And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven.
 
Revelation 13:7-8
It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.
All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain.
 
Revelation 13:9-10
If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
If anyone is destined for captivity, to captivity he goes; if anyone kills with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is the perseverance and the faith of the saints.
 
 
{{ Life, If in your life time the Holy Spirit has been drawing you close, tugging on your heart to except Christ as your Lord and savior, then your name is written in the book, the choice is yours whether you except the gift of love from Christ or not. If you reject Christ, He will reject you, if you deny Christ before men Christ will deny you to His Father
 
Psalms 9:4-5
For You have maintained my just cause;
You have sat on the throne judging righteously.
You have rebuked the nations,
You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted out their name forever and ever.
 
(The wicked = those who do not follow Christ)
It is your choice if you are going to follow after Jesus Christ or not.
The Lord wishes that non would be lost,,, but that is each ones choice, to be saved, to have your name written in the book of life or not, is totally up to you, do you fell the tug on your heart to except Him, to follow after Him and His ways?
If so then your name is written in His book, if you do not except Him then your name will be erased from the book
 
Revelation 3:5
“He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
 
Matthew 10:33
“But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.
 
Matthew 16:24
"Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me."
 
Mark 8:34
"And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me."
 
Luke 9:23
"And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.
 
It is our choice if we will choose to follow after Christ and His teachings or not. }}
 
 
Revelation 13:11
"Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon.
He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men.
And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life.
And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.
 
 
[[ the image of the beast is given the ability to even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Jesus said be faithful unto death, for He will always be with you.
There is no need to fear death from the beast or the image of the beast, if you are dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ, for all the beast or the image of the beast can kill is your body.
Your spirit is in the hand of Jesus He is your salvation, your redeemer, your provider and your protection. He is the protector of your sole.
“To live is Christ and to die is gain”
 
The image of the beast will causes all mankind to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and no one will be able to buy or to sell, except those who has the mark.
 
The thoughts I have had about this:
The culling of the ones who say “I am a Christian” but yet do not have their faith planted in the Lord Jesus Christ, and fear sets in because they will be more concerned that they wont be able to purchase food, clothing or shelter. And because of their fear will surrender their lives to the beast. Not trusting Christ, not taking Him at His word, trusting instead the world, the beast.
 
Jesus told us in Matthew 6: 24-34
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other.
You cannot serve God and wealth. For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not worth much more than they?
And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?
And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.
But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you?
You of little faith!
Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
 
We are told Do not worry about your life.
To not worry about what you will eat or wear.
And as you know or should know you can not add a single hour to your life by worrying about these things.
Jesus reassures us that Father God knows we have needs of such things, and that if we first seek His righteousness all these thing will be provided for us.
 
We are not to worry about what man or the beast might or will take from us, as followers of Christ, putting our faith in Him and Him alone, not the world today or the beast or image of the beast tomorrow but rather we should ne concerned about our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, and should be growing our faith in Him for when the day of the beast and the image of the beast come we need to be standing strong in faith, and that faith firmly planted in the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
Like the Holy Spirit keeps reminding me
“It is your choice, no one can make it for you.”
 
Honestly take some time and think about it where is your faith setting, in Christ or in the world.
You can not serve two masters. “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.”
You cannot serve God and worldly things.
You cannot serve God and worldly people.
You cannot serve God and the beast.
You cannot serve God and the image of the beast.
 
Aging it is your choice as to whom you will serve, as it is your choice as to who or what you will put your faith in, it is yours and no one else’s choice or fault where you spend eternity, that will only be determined by your choices the ones your make
 
Think about it
 
ill leave you along and give you a few days to go back over this, if you are a Christian a follower of Christ ask the Holy Spirit to guide and teach you, to draw you closer to the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
If you are not a believer if your faith is not in Christ, He stands at the door of your heart and is knocking, open up to Him ask Him in to your life your heart, repent of your sins turn your back on them, seek the Kingdome of GOD, ask to be forgiven and surrender to Christ. If you do so the Lord Jesus Christ will ask His Father / Father GOD in Heave, to send to you His Holy Spirit, to dwell in you to be your teacher,
if you do this then listen for His still small voice and obey.
 
The choice is your will you repent, except Jesuses forgiveness and then seek His righteousness?
Or
will you fear man, the beast, the image of the beast?
And live in fear and spend eternity in hell?
 
That choice is yours
back later
