The Seven Plagues
The heavenly singers (Rev 15:1-8)
15And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
The sea has been calmed aka standing on a sea of glass; this goes back to when Jesus calms the storm in Mark 4:35-41. The sea was the age of Christianity and of God’s people; it runs parallel in the gospel of Mark where he stills the winds and the waves as he calms the storm. Them being in the boat with Jesus, they are the church and they are alarmed because the false doctrines or teachings are trying to get in the boat/church, as well as the false teachers and Jesus shows them what will be done in time, at He calms the winds (false doctrine) and waves (the false prophets/infiltrators of the church). Jesus was not the only one who could do this, they could have done this as well, remember Peter walked out on the water and when the wind and the waves came towards him, he started to sink when he took his eyes off the logos. So he became subject to them, he was afraid of the winds and waves.
So the sea of glass has been calmed and it is mingled with fire (this is at the end of the church age), so the judgment would be the fire. Which in the last chapter we saw that He was judging the false prophets, false religion, the institution, the beast, his image, and all those mark with his name. Those who got victory over the beast are those who are in Christ. The 144,000 followed the Lamb wherever He went and they didn’t worship the beast, so we had become that later reign, we have done as they did (if you are of Christ). We have overcome the institution, the false canon, false teachings, false theology, false doctrine, and false religion. We have also, overcome the number of his name and have not received those false teachings in our minds or done his deeds with our hands.
This is a time queue, as we saw in the last sections, the beast had the two horns which represents the two thousand years and how the two thousand years was two thirds or .666 of the three thousand years. So now we have overcome the age and we stand on a sea of glass with God’s true people that are without the winds of false doctrine and the waves of the sea or the infiltrators of the church. Now that all those false things are gone, we now have the harps of God, which in turn means that His Spirit flows through you and you are an extension of Him, He is the vine you are the branch.
3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
The song of Moses basically says that those who have been corrupted have corrupted themselves, God did not corrupt them. They come out of the city that is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt which is Jerusalem. They are actually escaping Jerusalem where our Lord was crucified, so this is the false Jerusalem, i.e. the great whore or Jezebel which is false Christianity, which is false religion which is Babylon.
All of these people singing is like they are in AGREEMENT; they are harmonizing with each other. God has proven Himself as the King of the saints. Once everyone comes to understand His judgments, everyone will see with the physical eyes as well as spiritual eyes. Even those who pierced Him, so even if you are wicked you will see. This refers also to Philippians 2:10 and Romans 14:11, that every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is God. All shall fear THEE MEANING everyone will see and realize His power and how he has does all things to this point and why.
5 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
THE TEMPLE OF THE TABERNACLE OF THE TESTIMONY IS THE ARK OF THE COVENANT, WHICH CONTAINS THREE ITEMS. THE TABLES OF THE LAW WHICH REPRESENT THE OLD TESTAMENT ARE ONE ITEM. THE SECOND IS AARON’S (WHO WAS MOSES’ BROTHER) ROD, WHO WAS ALSO THE LEVITICAL HIGH PRIEST AND JESUS IS OUR HIGH PRIEST AND HIS SACRIFICE IS ONCE FOR ALL, THIS ROD IS THE CANON IS TESTED OVER NIGHT AND BEARS FRUIT THE NEXT DAY, AND THIS IS SYMBOLIC OF THE NEW TESTAMENT. THE THIRD IS THE HIDDEN MANNA THAT IS IN A GOLDEN JAR, AND THE GOLD HAS TO DO WITH TRIALS BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN TRIED BY THE FIRE OF THIS AGE AND THE SCRIPTURES OR THIRD TESTAMENT THAT WAS HIDDEN and IS NOW OPEN TO US. THIS IS HOW WE COME TO SEE THE THREE TESTAMENTS.
6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
THIS IS THE TIME OF COMPLETION AND PURIFICATION, THIS MEANS THE TRIAL IS OVER AND IT’S THE NEW MILLENNIUM. THEIR BREASTS ARE GIRDED WITH GOLD, BECAUSE THEY HAVE HEARTS OF GOLD, just like THE ROBES THAT THE SAINTS WARE ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE SAINTS.
FOUR BEAST REFERENCES ( REV 4:6, 8; 5:6,8, 14; 6:1, 6; 7:11; 14:3; 15:7; 19:4) THESE BEASTS HAVE TO DO WITH THE AGE, BECAUSE THEY SPEAK OF HIM AS THE ONE WHO IS AND WAS AND IS TO COME.
THOSE THAT HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES OVER TO GOD ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD. THE SEVEN PLAGUES OF THE SEVEN ANGELS CULMINATE IN THE MILLENNIUM, SO IT’S LIKE SAYING THAT NO MAN WILL BE ABLE TO ENTER INTO THE TEMPLE UNTIL THE MILLENNIUM. THEY ARE CONCEALED BY THE SMOKE OF THE GLORY OF GOD AND HIS POWER. [IN THE BIBLE IT TALKS ABOUT THE BOTTOMLESS PIT AND THE SMOKE THAT AROSE FROM THIS PIT which HAD TO DO WITH CLOUDING YOUR VISION OR YOUR ABILITY TO SEE THINGS TRULY. THE PIT IS A HOLE IN THE EARTH, AND THE SMOKE THAT ARISES OUT OF THE PIT IS THE CONFUSION that THERE IS FROM SEEING THINGS FROM AN EARTHLY LEVEL MEANING.] IN THIS CASE THE SMOKE COMES FROM GOD AND HIS GLORY WHICH IS HIDDEN FROM US BECAUSE IT IS TOO GLORIOUS FOR US TO COMPREHEND. HIS POWER IS HIDDEN BECAUSE IT IS TOO MUCH FOR US TO COMPREHEND, WHICH IS WHY WE ARE NOT ABLE TO ENTER INTO HIS TEMPLE OR HIS REST until all things are completed. WE ARE NOT GLORIOUS AS GOD IS AND SO UNTIL HIS GLORY IS REVEALED, OR THE SEVEN LAST PLAGUES ARE FULFILLED AND WE REACH THE MILLENNIUM WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ENTER INTO HIS TEMPLE.
IN THE EPISTLE OF BARNABAS, CHAPTER 15 IT SAYS: FURTHER, ALSO, IT IS WRITTEN CONCERNING THE SABBATH IN THE DECALOGUE WHICH [THE LORD] SPOKE, FACE TO FACE, TO MOSES ON MOUNT SINAI, “AND SANCTIFY YE THE SABBATH OF THE LORD WITH CLEAN HANDS AND A PURE HEART.” AND HE SAYS IN ANOTHER PLACE, “IF MY SONS KEEP THE SABBATH, THEN WILL I CAUSE MY MERCY TO REST UPON THEM.” THE SABBATH IS MENTIONED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE CREATION [THUS]: “AND GOD MADE IN SIX DAYS THE WORKS OF HIS HANDS, AND MADE AN END ON THE SEVENTH DAY, AND RESTED ON IT, AND SANCTIFIED IT.” ATTEND, MY CHILDREN, TO THE MEANING OF THIS EXPRESSION, “HE FINISHED IN SIX DAYS.” THIS IMPLIETH THAT THE LORD WILL FINISH ALL THINGS IN SIX THOUSAND YEARS, FOR A DAY IS WITH HIM A THOUSAND YEARS. AND HE HIMSELF TESTIFIETH, SAYING, “BEHOLD, TO-DAY WILL BE AS A THOUSAND YEARS.” THEREFORE, MY CHILDREN, IN SIX DAYS, THAT IS, IN SIX THOUSAND YEARS, ALL THINGS WILL BE FINISHED.
THROUGH THIS WHOle STUDY, WE HAVE GONE WITH AS it IS STATED in many books including the Bible, THE 6000 YEARS OF MAN AND THE 1000 YEAR REST OF GOD. THIS WAS A VERY EARLY BELIEF IN CHRISTIANITY, IT WAS FOUND IN THE CODEX SINAITICUS WHICH IS ONE OF THE MORE ANCIENT MANUSCRIPTS WE HAVE. IT WAS CONSIDERED HOLY WRITTEN AND WAS ONE OF THE HARDER ONES TO GET RID OF, FOR THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES. THE REASON IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO CONSUME THIS BOOK NOW, IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE OVERCOME THE BEAST AND HIS MARK, SO YOU GET TO SEE THE HIDDEN MANNA OR SCRIPTURES.
“AND HE RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY.” THIS MEANETH: WHEN HIS SON, COMING [AGAIN], SHALL DESTROY THE TIME OF THE WICKED MAN, AND JUDGE THE UNGODLY, AND CHANGE THE-SUN, AND THE MOON, AND THE STARS, THEN SHALL HE TRULY REST ON THE SEVENTH DAY. MOREOVER, HE SAYS, “THOU SHALT SANCTIFY IT WITH PURE HANDS AND A PURE HEART.” IF, THEREFORE, ANY ONE CAN NOW SANCTIFY THE DAY WHICH GOD HATH SANCTIFIED, EXCEPT HE IS PURE IN HEART IN ALL THINGS, WE ARE DECEIVED. BEHOLD, THEREFORE: CERTAINLY THEN ONE PROPERLY RESTING SANCTIFIES IT, WHEN WE OURSELVES, HAVING RECEIVED THE PROMISE, WICKEDNESS NO LONGER EXISTING, AND ALL THINGS HAVING BEEN MADE NEW BY THE LORD, SHALL BE ABLE TO WORK RIGHTEOUSNESS. THEN WE SHALL BE ABLE TO SANCTIFY IT, HAVING BEEN FIRST SANCTIFIED OURSELVES.
BY PUTTING PROPHECIES IN THE FORM OF COMMANDMENTS, THEY CAN MINISTER TO PEOPLE IN TERMS OF THEIR EARTHLY NEEDS WHILE THEY ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DARK AGE, UNTIL THE HEAVENLY MEANING IS FULFILLED IN THEM.
FURTHER, HE SAYS TO THEM, “YOUR NEW MOONS AND YOUR SABBATH I CANNOT ENDURE.” YE PERCEIVE HOW HE SPEAKS: YOUR PRESENT SABBATHS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE TO ME, BUT THAT IS WHICH I HAVE MADE, [NAMELY THIS, ] WHEN, GIVING REST TO ALL THINGS, I SHALL MAKE A BEGINNING OF THE EIGHTH DAY, THAT IS, A BEGINNING OF ANOTHER WORLD. WHEREFORE, ALSO, WE KEEP THE EIGHTH DAY WITH JOYFULNESS, THE DAY ALSO ON WHICH JESUS ROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD. AND WHEN HE HAD MANIFESTED HIMSELF, HE ASCENDED INTO THE HEAVENS.
HE GOES SO FAR AS TO SPEAK OF THE AGE BEYOND THE MILLENNIUM. THE SABBATHS THAT THE PEOPLE KEEP, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT CLEAN OF HEART ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE TO HIM BECAUSE THEY DO NOT REPRESENT THE HEAVENLY SABBATHS OR ETERNAL REALM, BECAUSE HE HAS IN STORE FOR US ONE THAT WILL BE BETTER FOR US.
EPISTLE OF BARNABAS 16 MOREOVER, I WILL ALSO TELL YOU CONCERNING THE TEMPLE, HOW THE WRETCHED [JEWS], WANDERING IN ERROR, TRUSTED NOT IN GOD HIMSELF, BUT IN THE TEMPLE, AS BEING THE HOUSE OF GOD. FOR ALMOST AFTER THE MANNER OF THE GENTILES THEY WORSHIPPED HIM IN THE TEMPLE. BUT LEARN HOW THE LORD SPEAKS, WHEN ABOLISHING IT: “WHO HATH MEASURED OUT HEAVEN WITH A SPAN, AND THE EARTH WITH HIS PALM? HAVE NOT I? “”THUS SAITH THE LORD, HEAVEN IS MY THRONE, AND THE EARTH MY FOOTSTOOL: WHAT KIND OF HOUSE WILL YE BUILD TO ME, OR WHAT IS THE PLACE OF MY REST? “YE PERCEIVE THAT THEIR HOPE IS VAIN.
HE IS TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE EARTHLY MEANING AND NOT THE HEAVENLY. Because they are FOCUSED ON THE LOWER THINGS, HE IS SAYING THEIR HOPE IS VAIN. THE HEAVENLY AND THE EARTHLY MEANINGS WORK TOGETHER IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH GOD’S PURPOSES which is why heaven is His throne and the earth His footstool. LIKE WINDS BEING DOCTRINES, THE CONCEPT OF WINDS CARRIES WITH IT THE CONCEPT OF DOCTRINES, AND PEOPLE WHO ONLY HAVE AN EARTHLY UNDERSTANDING, ONLY SEE WINDS, THEY DON’T SEE BEYOND THAT. PEOPLE THINK OF THE EARTHLY SABBATH AS PARAMOUNT AND AS THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS, NOT AS SOMETHING THAT SYMBOLIZES WHAT IS TO COME. THEY THINK OF THIS AS THE THING IN ITSELF, AND THIS TAKES THE HEAVENLY ASPECT OUT OF IT AND THEY TAKE IT TO THE EARTHLY MEANING ONLY. ONCE YOU MAKE AN IDOL OUT OF A CONCEPT, YOU ARE NOT RELATING TO THE TRUE MEANING OF IT. WHEN IT TALKS ABOUT BUILDING A TEMPLE THEY FOCUS ON THE EARTHLY TEMPLE (A LITERAL BUILDING) AND THEY MISS THAT THEY ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD. Because THEY see with their ONLY WITH THEIR earthly VISION OR PERSPECTIVE OF GOD’S WORD WHEN READING SCRIPTURES, THEY HAVE SEVERED THEIR SELVES FROM GOD/higher meaning/heavenly meaning, AND THEY ARE DOING IT ALL IN VAIN.
MOREOVER, HE AGAIN SAYS, “BEHOLD, THEY WHO HAVE CAST DOWN THIS TEMPLE, EVEN THEY SHALL BUILD IT UP AGAIN.” IT HAS SO HAPPENED. FOR THROUGH THEIR GOING TO WAR, IT WAS DESTROYED BY THEIR ENEMIES;
THIS DATES THE DOCUMENT TO A TIME AFTER THE ACTUAL TEMPLE BUILDING WAS DESTROYED. SO AROUND AD 70 WAS WHEN THIS PART OF THE DOCUMENT WAS WRITTEN. THE TEMPLE BEing DESTROYED AND THEm TRYING TO BUILDING IT UP AGAIN, IS ONLY UNDERSCORING THE FACT THAT THEY ARE STILL LOOKING AT IT WRONG. THEY ARE STILL IN THE EARTHLY UNDERSTANDING OF GOD’S WORD. JESUS SAID YOU ARE GOING TO TEAR DOWN THIS TEMPLE AND I WILL BUILD IT BACK UP IN THREE DAYS.
AND NOW: THEY, AS THE SERVANTS OF THEIR ENEMIES, SHALL REBUILD IT. AGAIN, IT WAS REVEALED THAT THE CITY AND THE TEMPLE AND THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL WERE TO BE GIVEN UP. FOR THE SCRIPTURE SAITH, “AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THE LAST DAYS, THAT THE LORD WILL DELIVER UP THE SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE, AND THEIR SHEEP-FOLD AND TOWER, TO DESTRUCTION.” AND IT SO HAPPENED AS THE LORD HAD SPOKEN.
THIS IS A REFERENCE TO THE BOOK OF ENOCH and HE IS verifying THAT THE BOOK OF ENOCH IS SCRIPTURE. BARNABAS LIKE JUDE IS SAYING THAT ENOCH AND HIS TEACHINGS ARE PART OF GOD’S WORD AND WERE ACCEPTED IN THE CHURCH ERA. This was accepted by people who handed scripture down to us and not accepted by people who took over the church.
LET US INQUIRE, THEN, IF THERE STILL IS A TEMPLE OF GOD. THERE IS-WHERE HE HIMSELF DECLARED HE WOULD MAKE AND FINISH IT.
Note here that God is making the temple, not men. The temple is again within us.
FOR IT IS WRITTEN, “AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, WHEN THE WEEK IS COMPLETED, THE TEMPLE OF GOD SHALL BE BUILT IN GLORY IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.”
This is a reference from the Book of Enoch as well which is likely why this book was also removed from the Biblical accepted text. Pharasitic Judaism and the Sadducees did not accept those books that referenced Enoch.
I FIND, THEREFORE, THAT A TEMPLE DOES EXIST. LEARN, THEN, HOW IT SHALL BE BUILT IN THE NAME OF THE LORD. BEFORE WE BELIEVED IN GOD, THE HABITATION OF OUR HEART WAS CORRUPT AND WEAK, AS BEING INDEED LIKE A TEMPLE MADE WITH HANDS. FOR IT WAS FULL OF IDOLATRY, AND WAS A HABITATION OF DEMONS, THROUGH OUR DOING SUCH THINGS AS WERE OPPOSED TO [THE WILL OF] GOD. BUT IT SHALL BE BUILT, OBSERVE YE, IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, IN ORDER THAT THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD MAY BE BUILT IN GLORY. HOW? LEARN [AS FOLLOWS]. HAVING RECEIVED THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS, AND PLACED OUR TRUST IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, WE HAVE BECOME NEW CREATURES, FORMED AGAIN FROM THE BEGINNING. WHEREFORE IN OUR HABITATION GOD TRULY DWELLS IN US.
WE are His temple, we are His house, and we are what He has built. It is only when we have our hearts renewed and we dwell on the heavenly level, can He then indwell in us. A lie is no part of the truth, and as long as we believe a lie, God cannot act through us in the ultimate sense. He can always act through wicked people like He did Pharaoh, but if He wants to use you to reveal Himself in the proper ways, you have to be changed. This happens on the spiritual Sabbath in the millennium. As stated above, no man can enter into the temple of God, until the appointed time. Those willing to be changed and seeking God will be changed.
HOW? HIS WORD OF FAITH; HIS CALLING OF PROMISE; THE WISDOM OF THE STATUTES; THE COMMANDS OF THE DOCTRINE; HE HIMSELF PROPHESYING IN US; HE HIMSELF DWELLING IN US; OPENING TO US WHO WERE ENSLAVED BY DEATH THE DOORS OF THE TEMPLE, THAT IS, THE MOUTH; AND BY GIVING US REPENTANCE INTRODUCED US INTO THE INCORRUPTIBLE TEMPLE. HE THEN, WHO WISHES TO BE SAVED, LOOKS NOT TO MAN, BUT TO HIM WHO DWELLETH IN HIM, AND SPEAKETH IN HIM, AMAZED AT NEVER HAVING EITHER HEARD HIM UTTER SUCH WORDS WITH HIS MOUTH, NOR HIMSELF HAVING EVER DESIRED TO HEAR THEM. THIS IS THE SPIRITUAL TEMPLE BUILT FOR THE LORD.
The bowls of God’s wrath (Rev 16: 1-21)
(1st) Bowl -A noisome and grievous sore (Rev 16 )
16And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. 2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshiped his image.
Again, the temple is us, so this is the true message of God coming from the people of God. The beast is the institution and the mark is its teachings and you participate in it when you perpetuate (ritualistic/religious doings) it. The sore is a disease of the flesh, which is lower meanings/earthly teachings. So this is all earthly thinking, seeing the temple as a building and not you, or the Sabbath as the earthly understanding of Sabbath and not the eternal. They read the scriptures that way, not recognizing the heavenly. Those which had the mark of the beast are those that worshiped his image, which is the teaching of the canon. Those that basically say we are the ones that determine what is true, everything comes through us. It’s a form of idolatry, because it’s like saying I worship these men and the decisions that they have made along with the teaching they have come up with, that is what your faith is truly in.
-The sea became as the blood of a dead man (Rev 16:3)
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
The sea is like we discussed before, God’s people, the true church. There were people in the church who had the higher level meaning, they were persecuted, cast out, killed, and started just doing what everyone else did. These people had the living understanding and they spiritually died. This is the dying of the Mystery of God, in the church so this is the second part of the falling away of the church/Christianity from the truth. There were people that could have made a difference and chose not to do so or they were killed. Jesus said if they persecuted me they will persecute you as well, so if you speak the heavenly understanding and teachings, get ready to be cast out or persecuted in some form. The truth becomes dead so the church becomes dead, and those that have the understanding begin to get phased out.
-Rivers and fountains of water became blood (Rev 16:4-7)
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. 6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. 7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
The waters are God’s Word and rivers being God’s Word passed down through time, so this would be like, the 24 books and a few of the books handed down by the apostles. The fountains of water, came up out of nowhere, the engrafted word, or the Apocryphal books. These too became blood and died off.
To understand something on the heavenly level, you don’t need an image/canon to do it for you, or a man of the cloth/preacher to do it for you, you just need the Holy Spirit to let you see the truth. It’s hard to wipe away what you have always learned as truth and realize its false, but the beauty of God’s Word when you let the Holy Spirit guide you is so different because it’s the truth and, because you are depending wholly on God. like Adam and Eve and Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob did they didn’t have a Bible or man of the cloth around to guide them nor did they need them. You don’t need a church to tell you what is and what isn’t valid, when you understand prophecy, you can look at a book and say this is prophecy. You can use the same keys in the book of Enoch, the Gospel of James, the Apocrypha, and the canonical Gospels.
The people of the age of antichrist, are not able to read it, so it is blood to them, basically the word taken from the heavenly meaning. The scriptures passed down through time, were misunderstood so they became blood.
There were people in the sea (church) that were still alive (knowing the truth of God’s Word), but they didn’t listen to them. They did this in the face of knowledge that they were then denying. Diotrephes knew who John was, but he was willing to turn away John from his own church. God is telling us that He is not bad, this happened because they rejected His truth, and they did it knowingly.
The waters became blood, so the saints and the prophets were killed. The blood they have now to drink is the earthly understanding and teachings, because they are worthy, as they have made the choice to knowingly turn against the truth.
The saints were under the alter so the voice that comes out of the alter is speaking for the saints. These people died and they knew why they died, they didn’t blame God, they blamed people.
(Matthew 23:34-35 – Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes; and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from blood of righteous Able unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the alter.)
They killed them, crucified them, and if they weren’t killed they were abused and chased because they were men that brought the truth to the people. They knew they were right and wanted to cover it up so that they could control things and teach what they wanted.
(2 Thessalonians 2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 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;
The day of Christ is a single day (to God a thousand years) which is the millennium, and the coming of Christ is the heavenly understanding, so this millennium is at hand.
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. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth. 14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,17 Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.)
For this cause they shall be given a strong delusion that they shall believe a lie, this is justifying the use of that lower level meaning, as he has given them blood to drink. The lie is the earthly level meaning with the heavenly level meaning removed. This is so that all might be condemned to believe not the truth and had pleasure in unrighteousness, so they had some worldly reason for rejecting the truth. This could be done for power, money, or other selfish reasons. Jesus even spoke about the scribes and Pharisees and how they walked around in long robes and loved being called rabbi from the people, and they exalted themselves above the teachings of God, even God Himself.
We are bound to give thanks always…These people believe in the truth and understand the truth as those who wish to believe a lie and have pleasure in unrighteousness are, Going from the Jesus level understanding which the fleshly/earthly level, and to the Christ level understanding which is the Spiritual/heavenly level. Those who were given it by word were those in Jesus day, and those who would be getting it by Epistle might be getting it through prophecy. No matter if you are learning at the beginning of the age or the end of it. The hope is for that which is to come, not presently, they did this for us, so we would be able to rediscover the truth.
-Upon the sun to scorch men with fire (Rev 16:8-9)
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
They repented not to give Him glory, this sounds like Thyatira. There is still a way and time to come back to the truth and they did not do it. The plagues that are in this book are for those who take away from or add to this book. They not loving the truth, they believed in the lower level meaning and loved a lie.
The sun scorched them, the sun (true light) is the word of God, and the moon (lesser light) would be the blood of the word. They see themselves as god’s agents/mediators on earth between God and man to carry out His will, and they speak of God and of His Holiness, but they are breathing out a false higher level meaning. This meaning is burdensome, damaging, and destructive to people. Which is why religion causes so much war and hate. (Everything makes so much more sense now doesn’t it?) So the Jesus they give you is like their sun, not the true sun, it’s not like the women that was clothed in the higher level meaning or the angel whose face was like the sun, but a scorching sun a punishing sun, a false heavenly interpretation.
Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Matthew 20:12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
Matthew 23: 1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: 3All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 4For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues.
-Darkness upon the seat of the beast; pain and sores (Rev 16:10-11)
10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
The Pharisees sit in the seat of Moses, but they are not of Moses, because if they had believed in Moses, they would have believed in Christ. The one seated in the temple of God is the false prophet/son of lawlessness/antichrist, which is basically the beast that comes up out of the earth and reigns for the 2000 years. They know that their days are numbered and their judgment is coming and that they cannot prevail. They are well aware they are condemned; they are tortured because of this knowledge of being judged. They are blaspheming Him by replacing Him with the god of the earth. The pains and the sores are again because of the false teachings that bring hate and burdens on them.
Again, this is like the people who see the day of the Sabbath but only the day and not the spiritual Eternal aspect of it, the heavenly meaning is rejected here. The darkness is the earthly without the heavenly. This is why you see a lot in the music industry, with the illuminati, with Satanists, where they will cover one eye. They are refusing to see with the spiritual heavenly sight, and only seeing with the earthly meaning or sight. They have created a language to one another with signs and symbols like this. The sad part is they know they are covering up the truth, even to this day. Lucifer has BUILT his kingdom on the basis of suppressing the God of heaven, and supplanting and putting himself in the seat of the temple which are people’s hearts. Another example is The pyramid which a symbol that he (Satan) is at the top of and all others fall underneath him, which is why symbolism is so important to them. These things define their theology.
-Upon the great river Euphrates (Rev 16:12-16)
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
Anytime north, south, east, or west is used it stands for:
North – has to do with God
South – has to do with the kingdom of darkness/Hades/the devil
East – the beginning of time/earlier
West – later in time
The earlier kingdoms (kings of the east) require that the Euphrates must be dried up, which is the water of God’s word. The water being dried up means the word gets destroyed. This happens so that the beast that was wounded can live again, the institution can recreate itself. This would the apocryphal and pseudepigraphal books or ancient books.
The dragon gave its power to the beast/false prophet that came up out of the earth that had the two horns and the appearance of the lamb/antichrist. The frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon is symbolic.
Acts of John Chapter 20 …And when he had set them in the midst of the market-place before all the people, in the sight of the apostle he made them drink the poison: and as soon as they had drunk it, they gave up the ghost. Then Aristodemus turned to John and said: Hearken to me and depart from thy teaching wherewith thou callest away the people from the worship of the gods; or take and drink this, that thou mayest show that thy God is almighty, if after thou hast drunk, thou canst remain whole. Then the blessed John, as they lay dead which had drunk the poison, like a fearless and brave man took the cup, and making the sign of the cross, spake thus: My God, and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whose word the heavens were established, unto whom all things are subject, whom all creation serveth, whom all power obeyeth, feareth, and trembleth, when we call on thee for succour: whose name the serpent hearing is still, the dragon fleeth, the viper is quiet, the toad (which is called a frog) is still and strengthless, the scorpion is quenched, the basilisk vanquished, and the phalangia (spider) doth no hurt -in a word, all venomous things, and the fiercest reptiles and noisome beasts, are pierced (or covered with darkness). [Ps.- Mellitus adds: and all roots hurtful to the health of men dry up.] Do thou, I say, quench the venom of this poison, put out the deadly workings thereof, and void it of the strength which it hath in it: and grant in thy sight unto all these whom thou hast created, eyes that they may see, and ears that they may hear and a heart that they may understand thy greatness.
The frog is poisonous, and of the three unclean spirits. There is an old saying that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. If you notice all the religions though they are different and even some are sort of the same (all Christian religions/denominations) are all against God, all the leaders of all these religions are trying to culminate into one religion. This is why God told me that religion is the beguilement of His people. This means that true Christians are about to be met with a worldwide singular religion. Satan is doing this to bring all of them together so that when the elect come at the end of time, they will attempt to do battle against them (to battle against the great day) to prevail, be he already knows he has been defeated.
So it’s like his sole purpose has to be simply to do this to harm mankind all he can, since he is unable to defeat or harm God. All the so-called conspiracies of today seem to be pointing right at satan.
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
Armageddon is Megiddo. This will likely be a physical and spiritual war.
-Into the air (Rev 16:17-21)
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
Satan is the prince of the power of the air. We are the temple, so this voice comes from the elect. Where it says from the throne, this is referring to God. It is ready and COMPLETE; everything is just waiting for the great voice of the elect to sound.
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
There were voices or teachings or secret languages, the judgments are the thunders and the lightnings from heaven. There is a great earthquake that shakes all the traditions of humanity. So the earthly teachings get exposed and torn apart.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
The great city is Babylon and it was divided up into three parts. The three parts, I believe have to do with the three pillars, which is also the time, times, and half a time, and the current time is the pillar or age of John.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
The island is in the water, which has to do with secularism in the church, them fleeing of fear because they could no longer maintain their notion that there is no God.
The mountains are the kingdoms founded upon the earth and they represent something like a pyramid, those held less important or lower being towards the bottom and the higher up or more important or most powerful are all at the top. The mountains not being found or melting away like what is stated in Enoch, means that the earthly institution teachings no longer stand.
The great hail is God’s word in solid form, this would be painful, and it falls upon those that are to be judged. This would be the spiritual aspect of the battle of Armageddon. People will still fight against God even though they have no position to even fight against God and He has shown Himself to them.
