Day 365: Revelation 19-22
 
Color code:
  • Sinners
  • True Christian™ rewards
  • Weird stuff
  • The sword leitmotiv
For those sinners who visit our Forum and are gamers or otherwise illiterate, we have prepared a visual aid to help you understand the Tribulations.


We're almost there. It's the Last Day of our Journey, and could there be a more fitting ending than experiencing the very Last Days of this deprived Earth with the magnificent Vision of Eternity? We're ready to let Jesus sail with us Home into Heaven. The sinners have had their last warnings. Billions still disobey Jesus. It's time to deal with them and then take everyone to their final well-deserved abode.

We begin by seeing how those already in Heaven (angels and apparently quite a significant population of True Christians™ thank God and Jesus for their hard work. They gave their deepest Love (1 John 4:8) to the sinners - from poisonous locusts and demolishing ecosystem services to painful skin conditions and collapsing mountains - and it is no fault of them that the majority of the remaining earth-dwellers did not appreciate these wonderful gifts.

Revelation 19:2
For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.


Jesus knew all this beforehand. Everything went as He had planned it. It was all written in the Book of Life. He guided the path of every single molecule and every torturous sting of the locusts during the Tribulations. He did His best and that was a lot!

Revelation 19:6
And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.


Now it's time to call it a day. First: The Marriage Supper of the Lamb and we're invited. Nice.

Revelation 19:7-9
Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

https://i1.wp.com/wisdom4today.org/w...e-supper-A.jpg

Is it a real woman? Finally, a True™ heterosexual marriage for Sweet Jesus? A symbol? Many have taken it as a metaphor of the community of True Believers™ and Christ, a commitment for eternity. In any case, it's gonna be a Love Feast with Jesus. Nice.

Second: Time to make War not Love, but even in War His Tremendous Love (1 John 4:8) towards the sinners glows from every pore of Sweet Jesus.

Revelation 19:11-13
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.


It's Jesus! Glory! And, finally, the promise that He carried for two millennia from Matthew 10:34 is kept!

Revelation 19:15
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.


https://godspeaksilisten.files.wordp...s-is-grown.jpg

There is also a mighty army, but, in the end, Jesus does not need it. He is so powerful. The remaining wildlife on the crumbling Earth consists of diverse birds that Jesus summons to consume the flesh of each and every one of His enemies, and they're many. First, He kills off the Beasts.

Revelation 19:20
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.


Next, everyone else is killed. By doing this swiftly and effectively Jesus keeps another wonderful promise, that of Luke 19:27.

Revelation 19:21
And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.


http://beforeitsnews.com/contributor...pit%20hell.jpg

Nice.

The Battle is over. Satan is imprisoned and Jesus rules on Earth, or on the remnants that remain after His Wrath descended upon the revolting sinners. This short interregnum will last for exactly one thousand years. Jesus takes those who died for Him during the Tribulations as His loyal subjects.

Revelation 20:4
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.


The others will have to wait for the thousand-year period to be judged. But are these subjects as loyal as we think? Jesus knows better. Again, He prepares another Final Test and another Final Battle. He releases Satan in order to seduce people again, and Satan does just that!

Revelation 20:7
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,


Once again, you'd think that everyone would be quite familiar with the Bible by now. For God's Sake, they've been living with Jesus for 1000 years. They must know the Bible by heart. Even the final Chapter after the one they're living is available for them. Will the stupid sinners of this blessed generation finally come to their senses and dismiss Satan?

:pigsfly:

Revelation 20:8
And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.


Of course, they won't. OK, this time it's no nonsense. God simply wipes them out.


Nice.

Revelation 20:9-10
And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.


Hell is Real. Hell is Forever!

Nice.


Time to judge. Jesus is the Judge on the Throne! Everyone not judged in Revelation 20:4 or not already in Heaven (that is, the True Christians™) will now receive judgment based on, e.g., James 2:22.

Revelation 20:13
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.


What will happen to those who mocked and persecuted us?

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


http://www.arscelebrandi.zadarskanad...1oh-baciti.jpg

Nice.

Time to move on. Old Earth is put aside. All the nasty things on it - hummingbirds, earthworms, the wollemi pine, icebergs, the platypus, possums, sedges and hedges, phytoplankton, the horseshoe crab, and the sparrow are dismissed. Needless things are discarded!

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.

Revelation 21:23
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.


Nice.

It's going to be a magnificent place without the distractions mentioned above. Jasper and gold and other precious stones and topaz and amethyst and very big HUGE pearls and other kinds of nice stuff, exactly as promised in Matthew 6:20.

Nice. And it's all for US! The sinners will NOT partake in ANY of THIS!

Revelation 21:27
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.


We shall be there for ever to serve Jesus, who will feed us (Revelation 7:17), and if we for some unfathomable reason be sad, God will comfort us (Revelation 21:4). Nice.

We'll never ever die. Nice.

Revelation 22:5
And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.


Can we trust this? Yes, we can. God Himself made this promise.

Revelation 22:6
And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.


Are we really going to see all these nice things! Yes, we are. And very soon.

Revelation 22:12
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.


Nice. But not to everyone.

Revelation 22:14-15
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
  • No companion animals.
  • No evolutionists or Wiccans or Harry Potter enthusiasts (sorcerers).
  • No fornicators, natural or unnatural (=homers).
  • No false Christians, Papist Cultits, mormons, etc. (idolaters).
  • No those who don't believe and follow Jesus in the Way we do (loveth a lie).
Nice. Respect the Bible, the King James Version. Respect all of it. Do not add or remove or you won't be in the Book of Life!

Revelation 22:18-19
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

This is True™. This is going to happen very soon. Jesus Himself has made this promise (Revelation 22:16). We are going to see all this. We are the Chosen Generation (1 Peter 2:9). There you have it. The Glorious double Promise of the Revelation: Heaven for us. The bottomless Pit for everyone else. Nice. For the first couple of million years in Heaven we'll probably go and check quite often, how the sinners writhe in agony (Luke 16:19-26) to compensate for the hard words they used against us while still on earth. Then, as we settle down, we are not likely to use this option quite as often.

Any moment now!

Revelation 22:20-21
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.


Nice.


Yours in Christ,

Elmer :bye:

Rev. 22:3c-5 his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.


A few days back I read


Rev. 5:8b-10 the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Got it. Those who serve God and the Lamb will reign. And the four beasts. That makes up the royals. Who are the proles? If you could clear this point up for me, that would be great. Thanks :thumbsup:

Mr. Fag, thank you for you decent if somewhat leftist question. As you correctly deduced, those who serve Jesus are also those who reign. These same people are reciprocally served by Jesus, who feeds them, that is, us (Revelation 7:17).

I assume that with the proletariat you mean the inhabitants of Heaven who are given lesser tasks. Of course, we'll know this for certain once we're there but I can tell you now that some enemies of God will be there to function as pieces of furniture.

Psalms 110:1
(A Psalm of David.) The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.


Hebrews 10:13
From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.


I presume that you call these furniture-replacements 'proles'. I also urge you to study this issue thoroughly, as it is going to be your only chance of ever reaching Heaven unless you Repent!


Yours in Christ,

Elmer :bye:

Your quote has "reign" so I think here you must mean (as well as king) duke, earl or count, and so on. But could these be said to reign? No. Dukes who think they reign tend to get their heads chopped off by those who do. The only task I can find in the text is reign. Are the serfs all in hell?

Of course not, quite a few of them might have - despite their poor education - chosen Jesus, feared Him and submitted into obedience. You see, Heaven is not an aristocracy but a meritocracy, and the only merits worth putting unto one's Spiritual CV are listed in Ecclesiastes 12:13.

Matthew 19:30
But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.


Yours in Christ,

Perhaps you missed chapter 21?
Here it is again:
REVELATION 21 .KJV . look up
18
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.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
You might have noticed that I highlighted verse 27. Are you written in The Lamb's book of life?

Here is my earlier post concerning persons condemned by God. Not "their sin" condemned. They themselves condemned.

So no dogs go to Heaven, according to Christianity.

I've tried to make this point to some fluffy-bunny previously, basing my argument on dog's lack of souls, but having this verse where it's spelled out emphatically will help next time. Thanks!

Very relevant Sister Mitza. There are horses in Heaven, otherwise, Jesus could not return on a white horse with a sword in His Mouth, could he?

Animals and souls is still an area for those skilled in the researching of Godly Mysteries. There are several opinions on the matter: here is some current thinking:
