The Two Witnesses

The Two Witnesses

Book of Revelation Chapter 11 Verses 1 through 14

We should understand that we are still in that interval between the sounding of the sixth and seventh trumpet and all these things are part of the seventh seal.

This is a very interesting chapter in the Book of Revelation!

Many people have questions about the Temple whether it will be rebuilt or not a third time and maybe even a fourth time. Part of those questions will be answered here in this chapter.

Much talk has been said about the two witnesses that appear in this chapter and we will learn some more about these things.

Many questions about Jerusalem whether it will be over run again, and we will seek these answers.

The truth remains by the time the Seven Years of Tribulation has reached this point, it will be that time of the Great Tribulation and circumstances will be even more terrible for all people, but the poor and the Jews will suffer the most during this time.

We should understand that the poor are that silent group of forgotten people in all tragedies that occur upon this earth.

The Lord said the poor would always be with us. Why? Because of covetousness of those who already have more than they will ever need!

Most all others will have sided with the Antichrist and they are completely deceived and headed quickly to their eternal destiny in the Burning Lake of Fire.

The Book of Revelation is a Book of Destiny, because it is a Book of Truth, the truth of the Living God who has said many times that “vengeance” belonged to Him.

Deu_32:41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.

Isa_61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

Eze_25:17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.

Nah_1:2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.

Luk_21:22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

Rom_12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Jud_1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

2Th 1:6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
2Th 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
2Th 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
2Th 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
2Th 1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Is there anyone who does not believe that the Lord will repay His enemies for all the things they have done against Him?

Is there anyone else who wants to stand up and call Jehovah God a liar and get on this list?

Is there anyone else who wants to ignore the Blood that Jesus, shed on Mount Calvary, so that each believer could escape this terrible day.

As the Holy Spirit says: One woe has passed, and a second woe is revealed to us.

*Rev 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

Will there be a third Temple? If there were not a third Temple, then John would not be given a rod to measure it!

The Temple of Solomon was destroyed by King Nebuchadnezzar.

The Temple of Herod was destroyed in 70 A. D. by Titus.

There has been no Jewish Temple since that time.

Again I ask, will there be a third Temple, that answer is yes!

We know from prophesy that in the beginning of the Seven Years of Tribulation, the Antichrist will present a peace deal that will allow a third Temple to be built upon the Temple Mount that exist today.

Will the Muslim Dome of the Rock be removed? It seems that would have to take place, but some believe that there is room for both to exist.

I personally do not believe there would be room for both.

What is another proof?

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

The “man of sin”, the Antichrist, could not sit in a Temple that did not exist!

Still another.(The image of the Beast in the Holy Place)

Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, “stand in the holy place”, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Still, I do not believe this is the Temple as described in the Book of Ezekiel, which I believe to be the Temple of the Millennial Kingdom.

We know that Jesus, John described as a Mighty Angel, who is not an angel, but God in the flesh has proclaimed His ownership of the earth and is about to return to take control of the things upon the earth.

It is believed that in this Chapter 11, we will see the beginning of the last three and a half years of the Tribulation known as the Great Tribulation.

We will see the Gentiles, the Heathen, will make their last attempt to end the plan of God and the purpose of God, and they will fail miserably!

The court, of the Gentiles will be overrun by these “heathen” of the Antichrist!

*Rev 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

The Romans have trodden down this area.
The Persians have trodden down this area.
The Turks have trodden down this area.
The followers of the Antichrist will have also trodden down this area.

These are the “heathen” of the Scriptures. The Gentiles.

It is very possible that everything the Jews have rebuilt during this time will be destroyed again.

This time of the Gentiles will come to the true end when Jesus returns with His Heavenly Hosts and all the Saints that are in Heaven.

We will see these things when we get to Chapter 19.

We should understand that all the prophets of the Old Testament were also preachers of the Word of God that was revealed to them by God the Holy Spirit.

John was told he would prophesy again and we know that after he had written the Book of Revelation, he was released from the Isle of Patmos and went about preaching the Word of God and we know that his main message was about the God of Love.

The greatest message our Heavenly Father still has today, is His message of “Love” through and by the Lord Jesus Christ!

God had set Israel aside for many reasons but especially for what they said to Pilate.

Mat_27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, “His blood be on us, and on our children”.

These words should never have been used and that generation perished, and the Hebrew children suffered through many, many years, and in reality, still suffer for this thing done by their elders.

The truth of our Heavenly Father is that He will never break a promise and it was time to fulfill that promise.

The Jews would be saved out of the Great Tribulation!

These things begin with the promise fulfilled of the two witnesses.

After all, it would take two witnesses of the truth before God would bring vengeance and death to so many.

Deu 17:6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

Because of this, we should pretty much know what the message of these two men is about.

They will do what witnesses do!

God does not ever change the way He operates just because the world does. He will always follow His written Word He has given to us!

*Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

We should clearly understand that Jehovah will not ever forsake the Jews!

They will be given another opportunity to accept the Lord Jesus Christ and this they must do.

God will never altar His salvation plan, no matter what liberal preachers preach and what other religions believe!

Remember they have been spiritually blinded, and those blinded eyes will be opened!

2Co 3:12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
2Co 3:13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
2Co 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
2Co 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
2Co 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
2Co 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
2Co 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

These two witnesses will open the blinded eyes of Israel at the beginning of the Great Tribulation which will last for three and a half years. The last part of the seven-year Tribulation Period.

These are two men. They are not two systems. They are not two churches. They prophesy! They Preach!

The Prophet Zechariah has told us some things of these two witnesses.

Zec 4:11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
Zec 4:12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
Zec 4:13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
Zec 4:14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.

Just as Zerubbabel and Joshua held unique and vital positions in the history of the Jewish people, so will these two witnesses of Revelation.

Zerubbabel represented the royal line of Jesus Christ.

Joshua represented the priestly line of Jesus Christ.

These two witnesses will present the reasons for God’s wrath by presenting the evidence of murder and slaughter of God’s people.

So who are these two witnesses in the Book of Revelation?

In all probability one of these two will be Elijah.

Elijah had the power to stop rain for three years and six months as he demonstrated to King Ahab.

1Ki 17:1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.

Luk 4:25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;

Jas 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
Jas 5:18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

Notice just as James says, this also shows the awesome power of prayer and the relationship Elijah had with Jehovah.

We also know Elijah did not see death and being true to God’s Word then this must take place as a man.

Heb_9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

It did not matter that Elijah was translated and went up to Heaven in a Chariot of Fire, he had to face death as a man.

Elijah was prophesied to return.

Mal 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
Mal 4:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

We see Elijah would return before the Great and Dreadful day of the Lord!

John the Baptist was a forerunner of the first coming of the Lord, but not the Great and Dreadful Day of the Lord.

John the Baptist did not fulfill the prophesy of Malachi!

John the Baptist even professed that he was not this Elijah.

Joh_1:21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

I believe Elijah to be one of those two witnesses.

The second witness is a little tougher.

In reality this other man could be either Moses or Enoch.

We know that Enoch walk with the Lord right up into Heaven without seeing death and we have seen that it is appointed for each of us to see death.

Gen 5:22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
Gen 5:23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Heb_11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

So we see Enoch did not see death and Enoch was a great witness for faith!

Other than this we do not know much more about this great man of God.

Moses on the other hand did die and was buried by the Lord with no witnesses to his burial location.

Deu 34:5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.
Deu 34:6 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.
Deu 34:7 And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

It should be obvious that the Lord took the life of Moses for he could have lived longer which proves the Lord holds the power of life and death and not Satan.

We know that Moses did have the power given to him by the Lord, to turn the waters of Egypt into blood.

Moses did have the power given to him by the Lord, to cause the many plagues of Egypt, which shows his close relationship with the Almighty Living God.

Another text we could look at is about that word witnesses.

Mat 17:1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
Mat 17:2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
Mat 17:3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.

Luk 9:28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
Luk 9:29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
Luk 9:30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:
Luk 9:31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

Mar 9:2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
Mar 9:3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
Mar 9:4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
.
There was no doubt that it was Elijah and Moses that met with the Lord before His crucifixion.

The most evidence points toward Moses but there are also many reasons this other man could be Enoch.

The fact of the matter is it could be anyone sent down from Heaven, but in reality, it should be two people the Jews would recognize the most.

According to the Book of Malachi I believe I lean toward Elijah and Moses.

The Civil Ruler (Moses) and the Priest (Elijah).

For a period of time they cannot be hurt by the evil of the Great Tribulation.

*Rev 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
Rev 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

Obviously, this fire from their mouth could be real fire, but it can also be the truth of God.

Jer 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.

In a world that has only heard watered down preaching and false teaching, the truth of God will burn!

All those who reject the Word of God, that will burn into your heart if you allow the Holy Spirit to do His work, but all those who reject the truth of God will die by fire, the Burning Lake of Fire.

Rev_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.

This is also a specialty of the Prophet Elijah.

2Ki 1:10 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.

These two witnesses of the Lord may be challenged greatly, but for a set period of time they will just preach the Word of God into the ears of Jews who have been blind to the truth of God.

It will already be terrible upon the earth as we have been learning from the Scriptures, but no matter what good is promised by the Antichrist, these two witnesses can stop the rain.
They can turn the water to blood.
They can send plagues around the world and we have seen what a plague like this virus, Covid 19 can do to the world in a matter of days.

And for a period of time that only the Lord knows maybe three and a half years, they can do this as often as they wish to get the attention of the Jewish people and any others who are listening!

No one can go against the Lord and win, but the Lord’s plan must continue so the Antichrist will be allowed to claim a false victory for a few days.

*Rev 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

Notice that very first phrase “and when they have finished their testimony”. Not before, not during, but after they had completed the work God had given them to do.

Do you know that this is the same for every child of God! As Christians, our life is in the hands of the Lord, and no virus, no war, and no Antichrist can change that fact until the Lord is ready for us to come home!

For these two, the “Beast”, the Antichrist has no power over them until God allows it and the Lord has a little surprise even for this occurrence.

These two men of God who had so much supernatural power from God will be overcome by some wicked, evil, man who will also show some supernatural power just as the wicked wise men, and the sorcerers, and magicians, of Pharaoh.

Exo 7:10 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
Exo 7:11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.
Exo 7:12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.

Notice these men of Pharaoh had a false power that was overcome by Jehovah and it will be the same for the Antichrist, The Beast.

These two witnesses preached “blood and water” as Jesus shed on Mount Calvary.

Notice they are described as the two Olive Trees. It is from the olive from which the oil for the lamps in the Temple were supplied. To the Church it is the “oil of Grace”.

God’s message never changes! The message of the “Cross” is the message of salvation throughout eternity!

They were dressed in humility, but they still showed the power of God.

To be humble is to have you physical and spiritual power under control, in fact given over to God’s use!

Even with all the bad things going on throughout the world, God’s message of “Grace” was still rejected by most, but that message as we will see later, had a profound message to the Jews.

We must always keep in mind that the Church is in Heaven at this time.

Some souls have been saved, but this is the time of Jacob’s Trouble and Jehovah is dealing with the Hebrew people, the Jews, in the process of fulfilling the promises He made to King David, yet they first had to accept the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is God’s provision for “Grace” and the cause of His great “Mercy”!

Until Satan is totally removed, and he will be totally and eternally removed, he will have what seem to be little victories, which are still fueled by deception.

Satan in reality knows he is a loser and he wants to take as many of God’s creation with him as he can, because of his great hatred for Jehovah the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Lord allowed these two “witnesses to be murdered” and the Beast claimed the victory and what happens next will show the mentality of the people that remained upon the earth.

It will also show that technology had to be progressed at least to the level we have today for all these things to take place.

You would have thought it was our commercialized, celebration for Christmas, happening for the murder of God’s people.

*Rev 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Rev 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
Rev 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

It is this Scripture that tells us exactly where these two “Witnesses of God” were witnessing.

They were in Jerusalem, where Jesus was crucified.

Look at some of the titles.

Spiritually called Sodom. Because of the wicked character of the people of the world at that time. A wicked and immoral people who worship themselves, and power, and riches, among other things.

All the things of Sodom and those surrounding cities were an abomination to Jehovah!

Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

These are the people who are left upon the earth, after the “Rapture of the Church”

Spiritually called Egypt. Because of the way they remembered Egypt when the Lord had told them put all that behind them.

Eze 23:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
Eze 23:2 Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother:
Eze 23:3 And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginity.
Eze 23:4 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.

Eze 23:8 Neither left she her whoredoms brought from Egypt: for in her youth they lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her virginity, and poured their whoredom upon her.

Eze 23:19 Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt.

These are the types of people left upon the earth, after the “Rapture of the Church”.

The bodies of these two men were left lying in the street. No one cared enough to even bury them.

They were left in the middle of Jerusalem as carnage for the vultures and wild animals.

They remained in the street for three and a half days but during this time there were great celebrations.

There was great rejoicing over their death.

I do not know how many of you have noticed, but there are many today just begging for this virus to attack our President Trump and our Vice-president Pence and that they die from it.

They do not hesitate to print and say things when someone of the inner circle of advisors test positive for this virus. They wish for this man to die so that he cannot be president four more years.

This is the hatred that has taken over our nation and the hatred that carries over to the Church and the hatred during the Tribulation Period, when this hatred will be focused upon the Jewish people in the part called the Great Tribulation only it will be even greatly multiplied.

The made merry.
They sent gifts to one another.

They claimed that these two men tormented them, but they only came to send a message.

They only came armed with words until they were threatened. Then they showed supernatural power.

They offered one last opportunity to repent before the Lord Jesus would return in Judgment and “WRATH”.

It was only torment because they rejected the truth!

They had the power to protect themselves from those same people who would have caused them harm before they had finished their message from the Lord!

These things would last only three and a half days.

You see today we have that technology for the world to witness all these things as they take place. With phones and live streaming. With TV powered by satellite broadcast to see the things of the world as they happen.

This time of the Book of Revelation could not have happened earlier than in our day when things that happen around the world are seen live the same day it takes place and the death of these Two Witnesses of Jehovah would be big news.

CNN and their sister fake news sources would have a field day announcing these things live.

But the Lord never ceases to amaze me!

All the merry making, and the great parties, and the big news would all amount to a great awakening for all the world that remained.

Because they two humans who came with the message of God, the God of love who would become the God of “wrath” because He was through repenting!

*Rev 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

You see life and death are in the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ!

The Spirit of Life enters back into these two bodies that had laid where they were murdered for preaching the message of God.

Two men who had great power from God who only used that power when they were attacked, which means as Christians we can defend ourselves. We are not here to be floor mats for the world.

1Ti_5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

There was no reason for their death just like there is never a good reason to murder someone for telling others of God’s plan of salvation and judgment, but this was the Great Tribulation.

People do not want the truth when it differs from their own principles!

They were two witnesses because God would not allow judgment to fall on anyone who was innocent. He never will!

They gave the last warning before Jehovah’s judgment on all unbelievers.

And another promise was fulfilled.

Even these two men, sent of God would not be caught up in that “Judgment”!

*Rev 11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Rev 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

Again, the Lord never ceases to amaze me.

After these Two Witnesses have proclaimed their message for maybe all of those three and a half years of the Great Tribulation, they will be murdered but the Antichrist had to show his true self to the world before this happens.

Much of the world had been deceived by him and the rest of the world were already his worshipers.

Many things considered to be supernatural will have been witnessed on both sides and it will seem that the Antichrist will have come out on top and all that celebration began like it was the grandest thing to silence the messengers of God.

The Lord after three and a half days just calls His Two Witnesses to come back home.

This is where many believe that one of these men are Elijah and the other Enoch, two men that did not see death in the Bible times.

These things are not worth an argument as they have nothing to do with the Church nor the salvation plan of God.

When the Lord says “Come”, He has already made a way. He has already built the bridge.

All the world will hear this voice, but I believe the Lord will use their names, just as He did Lazarus!

The world comes to a complete standstill because cameras had been watching these two. It was the six oclock object of laughing and ridicule.

All of a sudden, they came alive to live ever more and the entire world watched as they returned to Heaven and all of a sudden, the parties ceased, and joy will become fear.

All of a sudden, the truth will begin to sink in, but it will be too late.

All of a sudden, certain followers of the Antichrist became non-followers.

This was the signal that the Lord was on His way for “Judgment”.

The Lord Jesus has said, when He returns, He would come quickly!

These two witnesses had given the entire world the last warning from a very patient God!

2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2Pe 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2Pe 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

Instantly the first signs of His return will begin to happen.

A great earthquake and a tenth part of the City of Jerusalem falls which included seven thousand men and most likely all their families and possessions.

The remainder of the city turned to Jehovah but only because of true fear!

For the Church we need to understand the Lord could return to get His church at any moment.

Only the Lord has the life and therefore the death of each person in His hands.

No one knows what tomorrow with bring. The proof is this virus that is raging today.

If the Holy Spirit has been working on you, now is the time to give in to Him. Remember what the Lord said:

Gen_6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man,

They gave glory to God this did not mean they gave their heart to Jesus!

What did all these things mean?

Everything on earth that was already terrible, was about to get much, much worse!

*Rev 11:14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

Amen

Worthy Is the Lamb of God

The Lamb and the Scroll

Book of Revelation Chapter 5 Verses 1 through 14

As we continue in our study, let us review.

We have seen it is Jesus Christ who holds the candlesticks that represent all those seven Churches.

We have seen it is the Lord Jesus who holds the Pastors or, (whatever he is called by denominations), in His hand and they are responsible to Him for every message and for how they lead the church, and how they live their own lives.

We have seen the seven types of churches and somewhat how they also represent the seven Church Ages.

We are in the last of the Church Ages today!

We have seen that immediately after the last Church Age, that the Church has been called into Heaven, so most of the remaining Chapters in this great and final Book of the Bible happen after the Church has been called out of this world.

Chapter five introduces us to “the Lion of the Tribe of Juda”.

*Rev 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

We should understand that the “Rapture” of the Church will have taken place.

The “Bema Seat” judgment (the Judgment Seat of Christ) has taken place and rewards for the work each Christian has done after salvation, have been issued. The question of salvation had already been answered and the Bema Seat judgment was only about rewards.

Those rewards have been tossed at the feet of our Savior as each Christian felt unworthy of any reward, but only shame for not doing more when they had the opportunity. We will all feel this way when we look upon the Lamb of God!

Then there is this book.

We should be clear that John is continuing to tell us about the scene in the throne room of God.

It is some man who divided chapter 4 from chapter 5 and added the verse numbers, which are a blessing in most cases.

As God sits upon His throne, He thrust this book outward, to see if any of the saints now fill worthy to open the book He has in His right hand.

None were! None of us are worthy even to be in Heaven!

What do we know?

The right hand is the symbol of “wisdom”.

Pro 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

The right hand is the symbol of “power”.

Job 36:5 Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom.

The right hand is the symbol of Divine operation. Our Holy God is Supreme in all His decisions!

Psa 118:16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.

When Jehovah God thrust out His right hand that holds a book that He has written, then who does have the power and the knowledge to read this book.

The Bible is one of those amazing books that He has given to us and would have every Christian to have a copy of that book.

This book in His right hand is another book, a book in which we will find all the things that will happen after the Church is in Heaven and have missed out on the wrath of God.

We have heard a lot about executive orders, especially during the last two administrations and we could say maybe these things are executive orders from a Holy God who is not pleased with the actions of His own creation to rebel against Him.

Remember when the Church entered Heaven, the Antichrist was standing upon the earth with the answers to all the problems that were facing the earth in that day. A day maybe not so different as the day we have now as the world is facing a killer virus. Which by the way has many question marks!

The Angels knew that they were not worthy!

*Rev 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
Rev 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

John realized that this Angel that stepped forward had a voice that could be heard throughout all of Heaven and if need be throughout all God’s creation.

This Angel could not have been Jesus Christ, Angels are created beings and the Lord Jesus Christ is the Creator.

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

All the Angels in Heaven are mighty Angels. This Angel could be the Angel Gabriel who is known in the Scriptures as an Archangel who stands in the presence of God or some other Angel whose name we do not know.

Luk 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

Some believe that Gabriel is the Trump of God, as do I!

What did this Strong Angel proclaim? It was a simple question but a question that only One person could answer.

” Who is worthy to open the Book that was projecting from the throne of God, which also had been sealed by our Heavenly Father”?

What did John realize?

There was no one in Heaven and no one upon this earth that is worthy to break the seals God had placed upon this book!

Sealing a document was equivalent to the signature of the Owner of that seal.

There were certainly one upon this earth worthy!

Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Rom 3:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

Not one of the “Redeemed” would claim to be worthy.

Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Rom 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

Our worthiness comes only by Jesus Christ!

No Angel would even attempt to reach for this Book without the express permission of our Heavenly Father!

It did not take long to search in Heaven because all the Saints were still at the foot of the throne on their faces before God.
It did not take long to search on earth because all the Saints of God were in Heaven and no one left behind were worthy.

All these things caused the Apostle John to weep because he knew he was certainly unworthy to open this Book nor was he worthy to look upon this Book.

John knew what was happening to the Church that was still physically upon this earth and he knew they needed to understand what was written in this Book.

John understood he was having a vision of the future of the Church.

With all the persecution of the Church, John was craving for answers that he felt he could only get from this book.

John knew his days were short and the Holy Scriptures for the Church was not yet complete.

Remember Daniel was not allowed to write about these things.

Dan 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

This time of increased knowledge would be also the time of the last Church Age or what we know is the Laodicean Church Age, which we are in today.

*Rev 5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

Not one of God’s Created beings was worthy enough to open the Book that was in God’s right hand.

One look at the throne and John saw just how much superior Our Heavenly Father is to all creation.

There was no one anywhere worthy to reveal what God had written in that book that He was offering.

Our heavenly Father wanted the things in this book to be revealed!

John was to write down everything he saw.

We could say that none of the Word of God was written without tears.

We already know that without tears not much of the Word of God can even be understood!

If this book could not be opened, then it would prove God to be false!

Rev 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, “and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter”.

You see, if this book that contained all the things that we now know was written in the Book of Revelation, (the revealing of the Lord Jesus Christ), that would happen after the Church was in Heaven, then God would have told John a lie.

John wept because of this!

Remember no one could approach God if they had sin, so no one on earth could be worthy. What did Jesus say?

Luk 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, “that ye may be accounted worthy” to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

God has no secrets about His plan of salvation!
God will never hide the truth from us!

Are there things about God’s creation that we know nothing about? Sure, but these things do not affect our relationship with our father in Heaven.

Those elders (the church) already knew the truth and as we all should do, one of those elders came to John with the truth.

You see the Book that God held was a book of destiny.

It is a book of God’s wrath.

The book is in God’s hands because it is He, who is in charge of human history and human future!

Our Heavenly Father has a plan and He will not be denied!

Many people do not like the Book of Revelation, but it will pay for all of us to study this great Book of the Bible and believe what the Word of God says!

This Book is the revealing of the Lord Jesus Christ and it is only He who sacrificed Himself to pay for our sins and who will also save the true Israel, and only He is worthy to open this Book in the hand of our Father in Heaven!

*Rev 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

When John heard these things he knew he would then see his Savior.

What do we know?

We know that Jehovah God is holding a book in His right hand.
We know that a search has been conducted all over the earth for someone worthy to open this book.
We know that a search has been conducted all over Heaven for someone worthy to open this book.
We know it was the Lord Jesus Christ who was the speaker all through the first three Chapter of this Book we now have.
We know that Chapter 4 and much of Chapter 5 describe the Throne Room of God in Heaven.
We now know that it is the Lord Jesus Christ who will explain the remainder of the Book of Revelation.

How do we know this person is Jesus Christ?

1) He is the same One spoken by Jacob:

Gen 49:9 Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
Gen 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

This Shiloh is the Messiah.
This Shiloh is the “Lion of the tribe of Judah”.
This Shiloh will be King of the Jews.

2) He is the same One spoken by Isaiah:

Isa 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
Isa 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
Isa 11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
Isa 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

Isa 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

3) He is the same One spoken by Jeremiah:

Jer 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
Jer 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Jer 23:7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
Jer 23:8 But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

To this day, the Jews who have the Book of Jeremiah, do not realize it is the Lord Jesus Christ who brought them back out of captivity to the rebirth of the nation of Israel, but they will soon.

Jesus has conquered everything that has been placed in His path, by being the humble Savior and Redeemer that He is, but this book that He takes out of the hands of His Father will show the world another side of our Lord, the side of “judgment”!

It is the Lord Jesus Christ who is worthy to take this book and open the seven seals of God because He is God!

So let us meet Him.

*Rev 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

Notice He is in the midst of the throne.
Notice He is in the midst of the four beasts.
Notice this is the same exact same place as our Heavenly Father.

Rev 4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

The Lord Jesus Christ is the very center of everything in Heaven!

The Lord Jesus Christ is the center of everything in this world!

The Lord Jesus Christ is in the exact place to execute the offices of Prophet, Priest, and King!

He wore on His person, all the wounds which He received to take away my sin, and your sin, and all the sin of the world.

He had he appearance of a lamb that had been slain!

Because He had been sacrificed.
Because He had been buried.
Because He had raised from the dead.

He was the only One who was worthy to open up the book that had been in His Father’s Right Hand!

Opening this book would bring great joy to His own people but it would bring great terror to His enemies!

He had seven horns and seven pairs of eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the Earth.

Zec 3:6 And the angel of the LORD protested unto Joshua, saying,
Zec 3:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.
Zec 3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.
Zec 3:9 For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
Zec 3:10 In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbour under the vine and under the fig tree.

Zec 4:8 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Zec 4:9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.
Zec 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

The Lord Jesus Christ was the perfect sacrifice for our sins, but He was also the only Sacrifice for our sin, making Him the only way to get into God’s New Heaven!

God’s Holy Spirit is the only Spirit that can run to and fro throughout the whole earth to provide regeneration to the believers and hold Satan to limited power as he to, goes to and fro through this earth.

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
Job 1:7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

2Th_2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

Satan is that mystery of iniquity who remains hidden, but who is the cause of all lies and the cause of all sin in our world, but he is also under the control of the Holy Spirit and cannot do anything without the express permission of our Savior.

So the Lord Jesus who is the absolute Power of God, takes the Book.

*Rev 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
Rev 5:8 And when he had taken the book, 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.

Jesus Christ the sovereign power of all Creation, bled and died that the entire world could be saved, but sadly there are people who just do not want to be saved because they have made themselves to be little gods who think they have some power, which they do not.

There are not really any true atheists!

A true atheist would not be concerned with those who have placed their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ!

There are only Christians and antichrists! These are the only two groups of people upon this planet!

Jesus Christ is the “Supreme Intelligence” in this entire universe or a better word is cosmos.

Col 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
Col 2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Because Jesus is sovereign, He only can take the Book in the right hand of God the Father, because He is the right hand of God the Father!

What happens when He takes the Book?

Heaven falls down on their faces in worship of Heavens Savior and Redeemer, the Almighty Living God!

The four beast whose only job is to worship God.

All those elders, the Church who are the redeemed and who know their Redeemer.

All Heaven and Earth broke loose in a song of praise.

Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
Rev 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

You see once the Church is in Heaven, then will begin the wrath of God upon this earth of unbelievers.

All the prayers of the persecuted that have been saved in Heaven will be answered!

Every prayer contained in those vials are from God’s children and are like a sweet-smelling aroma in His presence.

He does not forget, not a single one!

You know what? I cannot play a single musical instrument, but on that day, I will be a “harp player” and a good one and I definitely want to sing in Heavens Choir. Not because I can sing because I cannot. I just want to praise my Lord and my God.

Then, they all began to sing a new song in Heaven.

*Rev 5:9 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;
Rev 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

First the song:

It would be a song that neither they nor any other had sung before.

It could be sung at this time because the redeeming work of the Lord is complete! (thou hast redeemed) We cannot sing this song until we get to God’s “New Heaven”. We know we are redeemed! We are redeemed! The Lord has just not delivered us unto His Father, which is what the “Rapture” is all about!

Presenting the Church (the Bride) to the Heavenly Father.

It would begin the unceasing worship of the redeemed for the Redeemer.

All the Old Testament prophesies of the Church are fulfilled.

All the New Testament teachings about the Church are fulfilled except the Book of Revelation!

Tit 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Tit 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Tit 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Tit 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Tit 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

It would be the first moment of a never-ending life!

Second the singers:

The four beasts. They are alive and they sang.

The twenty-four elders. They are alive and they sang.

The Angels. They are alive. They cannot sing the song of the Redeemed, but they can sing praises to the Lamb of God!

The Angels finally understood the work of the Master. These Angels now know more about God than they ever had before!

There is not one dead person in Heaven and there never will be!

They praise the Lamb of God because He is worthy.
They praise the Lamb of God because He was our sacrifice.
They praise the lamb of God because He has redeemed to God the Father.
They praise the Lamb of God because he used His Own Blood.

Heb 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Heb 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

They praise the Lamb of God because He accepted any who called upon His name.

Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

They praised the Lamb of God because of His amazing gifts. Remember the Bema Seat is now in the past, yet the Adopted Children of God are given great gifts and a great work.

The Lord had to die, but He could not stay dead!

After the seven years of tribulation, especially the three and a half years of the Great Tribulation, those on earth who the Lord has allowed to survive along with that remnant of the Jews will see some new rulers under the King of the Jews.

King Jesus will rule the world.
King Jesus will be King of the Jews.
King Jesus will appoint the Redeemed to be Kings and Priest as His helpers, over the nations that remain and just whatever He so chooses.

Mat 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Again worthy is the Lamb. Heaven has never been a lonely place!

Heaven will never be a crowded place!

*Rev 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
Rev 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

We could take that number of Angels just as it is written and it be 100 million and millions and millions more or we can accept the meaning to be an innumerable amount of Angels just as the 24 elders mean a number of Saints that are not given as it will be perfect number.

These Angels surround all the Saints of God, the Beast, and the lamb of God in the midst. They have been our protectors since we accepted the Lord as our Savior and they will continue to be our protectors throughout eternity.

They now stand equally with all the throng of Heaven.

They are not distressed or broken.
They are not divided nor do they feel betrayed.

Just like the Church they are just there to worship their God, the Lamb of God, the Lord Jesus Christ!

They have been our unseen guardians only occasionally taking on the form of a human for a reason that only the Lord knows.

They have served just because of the love for their Creator.

Notice those beasts are singing. Remember they had only one job!

Rev 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

The whole time they were doing these things for a God who left Heaven in all His glory to come to this earth to die and then reclaim His life and return to Heaven.

They were now singing to the Lamb of God, who was standing in the midst of the throne of God. Still proof that God exist in three persons!

The Church has always known the Lord Jesus is the Almighty Living God.

And what where they all singing?

Worthy is the Lamb of God that had been slain to “redeem” His greatest creation!

Worthy is the Lamb of God who has the “power of God”.

Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Worthy is the Lamb of God who possesses all the riches of Heaven.

Eph 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
Eph 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
Eph 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
Eph 3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

Worthy is the Lamb of God who has all the wisdom and strength and honor!

Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
Rom 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
Rom 11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
Rom 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

Worthy is the Lamb of God who possesses all the glory and blessings.

Php 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Php 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Php 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Php 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Php 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Php 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Php 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Oh, what a Savior.

*Rev 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
Rev 5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

All things were made by our Savior and for our Savior. All His creation knows Him, who He is and what He stands for!

It is only the puny humans who defy Him who in reality only have the power of grass in the field!

Isa 40:3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Isa 40:4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
Isa 40:5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Isa 40:6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:
Isa 40:7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.
Isa 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

All of Heaven is concerned about the opening to the seven seals.

The Church is in Heaven.
All the Angels are in Heaven at this moment.
The beasts are still around the throne of the Lord.

At this same time, Satan is placing his false trinity in place upon this earth and the seven-year tribulation period has begun along with death and destruction and the greatest deception known to mankind.

Amen

Let us Pray!
