Chapter 11


THE THREEFOLD SEAL OF GOD


This study was written that the reader might search its content with open mind and heart and that the Spirit of Truth would bring understanding and conviction to the sincere follower of Christ Jesus and Christ the Holy Ghost.

It is understood that the content of this study is very controversial, but through prayer, fasting and deep study, the Holy Ghost will make known whether it is truth or error.

The 1888 Message of Christ's Healing Grace, began a revival and a reformation in the SDA church that is to bring purification and power to those that remain and are not shaken out by "the straight testimony called forth by the counsel of the True Witness to the Laodiceans" (Early Writings, p. 270).

The message of the Righteousness of Christ has been preached for 104 years and still has not brought purification nor the impartation of power to the church. Is this Message false and/or outdated? No, a thousand times, no! Then it must still be incomplete. More light, "advanced light" on the subject of the nature of Christ and His Righteousness needs to be given to fulfill the prophecy and lighten the whole earth with His Glory.

This "straight testimony will have its affect upon the heart of the receiver, and will lead him to exalt the standard and pour forth the straight truth. Some will not bear the straight testimony. They will rise up against it, and this is what will cause a shaking among God's people" (EW p. 270).

The SDA denomination claims to have the everlasting gospel as depicted by the three angels' messages of Revelation chapter 14. Yet, inspiration tells us:

"Then I saw another mighty angel commissioned to descend to the earth, to UNITE HIS VOICE WITH THE THIRD ANGEL, AND GIVE POWER AND FORCE TO HIS MESSAGE. GREAT POWER AND GLORY WERE IMPARTED TO THE ANGEL, AND AS HE DESCENDED, THE EARTH WAS LIGHTENED WITH HIS GLORY." -- Early Writings, p 277

Inspiration continues to state the following:

"This message seemed to be an ADDITION TO THE THIRD MESSAGE.... THE GLORY OF GOD RESTED UPON THE PATIENT, WAITING SAINTS." -- Early Writings, p 278

This message swells into a loud cry, calling those caught up in the falsehoods of Babylon the Great, to COME OUT OF HER, into THE PURE CHURCH OF THE HOLY GHOST, THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, THE BRIDE OF CHRIST. THIS CHURCH/WOMAN WILL GO FORTH CONQUERING AND TO CONQUER.

The latter rain outpouring of advanced light will bring much understanding and power to the REMNANT of HER SEED, and they will know the truth and be able to keep ALL the commandments of God since they will have the Living Spirit of Prophecy, the Holy Ghost dwelling in their midst.

Inspiration makes this statement:

"I was pointed down to the time when the third angel's message was closing. The power of God had rested upon His people; they had accomplished their work and were prepared for the trying hour before them. They had received the latter rain, or refreshing (revival and reformation) from the presence (Christ's Glory, the Holy Ghost) of the Lord, and the living testimony (Spirit of Prophecy) had been revived. The last great warning had sounded everywhere, and it had stirred up and enraged the inhabitants of the earth who would not receive the message (of the Godhead)." -- Early Writings, p 279

THE SEALING ANGEL

"An angel with a writer's inkhorn by his side returned from the earth and reported to Jesus that his work was done, and the saints were numbered and sealed. Then I saw Jesus, ...throw down the censer. He raised His hands, and with a loud voice said, 'It is done... He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.'

"Every case had been decided for life or death. While Jesus had been ministering in the sanctuary, the judgment had been going on for the righteous dead, and then for the righteous living.... As Jesus moved out of the most holy place... there was then no mediator between man and an offended God... and now there was no atoning blood to cleanse the guilty, no compassionate Saviour to plead for them... In that fearful time, after the close of Jesus' mediation, the saints were living in the sight of a holy God without an intercessor. Every case was decided, every jewel numbered. Jesus tarried in the outer apartment of the heavenly sanctuary..." -- Early Writings, p 279-281

The Angel returned after he had sealed and numbered the saints. He had a writer's inkhorn by his side. Could it be that this angel wrote the seven thunders given to John in Revelation chapter 10, and they were given as the sealing message for the saints as an addition to the third angels message? This Angel can be none other than the Messenger of the Covenant, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Fourth Angel/Member of the Godhead who comes to lighten the whole earth with His, Christ's Glory, in Truth and in Power. The Holy Ghost leads us into all truth and righteousness, sealing us unto salvation.

THE JUDGMENT AND THE HARVEST

Since all the saints are sealed and numbered, Jesus declares that His blood ministration is finished and no longer needed. He then puts on His garments of vengeance and sits on His Throne of Judgment to judge His church first, then the inhabitants of the earth. All in the church are sealed. They will bear fruit of righteousness if they are wheat or fruit of unrighteousness if they are tares. The latter rain bolts the grain to bring forth fruit and ripens it for harvest. The same rain ripens the tares as it ripens the wheat. All are to grow together until the harvest. Then and only then will the fruit of their character be revealed. It is at this time that the separation in the church takes place; the wheat from the tares, the sheep from the goats, the righteous from the unrighteous.

While Jesus sits as Judge over His Church, He pours out His Spirit on all flesh as a latter rain message of Truth. Unto those that receive this message of Truth, He will pour out His Spirit and impart His power of righteousness. This straight Testimony of the True Witness, the Holy Ghost, will cause a shaking; a separation of the wheat from the tares and a purification in the church.

The Lord said, "Let both grow together until the harvest, then, I will send My angels (messengers with messages) to gather them." It is the Revelation 18:1 ANGEL of the LORD that is in charge of the work of harvest. She will reveal Herself in the last message to the Church and the world. She will be the only Intercessor left between God and man. If Her work of Intercession is rejected, there is no other means by which we can be cleansed from our sin and uncleanness. It is through the impartation of Christ's power of righteousness, the Holy Ghost, that we keep all His commandments, and put on His robe of righteousness, the garment of His Glory.

"Then will I sprinkle clean water (water of separation - symbol of Holy Ghost) upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God." -- Ezekiel 36:25-28

"The last tear for sinners had been shed, the last agonizing prayer offered, the last burden borne, the last warning given. The SWEET VOICE OF MERCY was no more to invite them. When the saints and all of heaven were interested for their salvation, they had no interest for themselves. Life and death had been set before them. Many desired life but made no effort to obtain it. They did not choose life, and now there was no atoning blood to cleanse the guilty. All heaven had united with Jesus, as they heard the fearful words, 'It is done. It is finished.' The plan of salvation had been accomplished, but few had chosen to accept it. And MERCY'S SWEET VOICE died away, fear and horror seized the wicked. With terrible distinctness they heard the words, "Too late! Too late!" -- Early Writings, p 281

THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST THROUGH HIS GLORY

The whole Bible is a revelation of Jesus Christ. "Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God." Heb 10:7. The last book of the Bible is entitled, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ", and begins with the following words:

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

The full revelation of Jesus Christ was given to John by the ANGEL of the LORD. John recorded what he saw describing the WORD of God, Jesus Christ, and His Testimony which is the Spirit of Prophecy, or Jesus Christ the Holy Ghost. In other words, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Holy Ghost, the Angel of the Lord, came to John to reveal Jesus Christ as the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

"And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets." -- Revelation 10:4-7

This ANGEL stands on the land and the sea symbolizing that the whole earth is lightened or covered by Her glory or sealing message. The ANGEL swares by the Creator, Jesus Christ that there is time no longer - the sealing is finished, no more blood ministration. In the seventh or last seal, the Voice of the Seventh Angel (the Holy Ghost) reveals the Mystery of the God Family and the mystery of godliness. She reveals the fullness of the character of Jesus Christ as the Alpha and the Omega, the Author and Finisher of our salvation, the fullness of the Godhead in one body. She comes to lighten the whole earth with the revelation of the Second Adam and His glorious Helpmate.

THE THREEFOLD SEAL OF GOD

"The 144,000 were sealed and perfectly united. On their foreheads was written, God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious star containing Jesus's New Name." -- Early Writings, p 15

When the Threefold Seal -- God, New Jerusalem, and a Glorious Star containing Jesus' New Name -- is combined with the truths revealed in Revelation Chapter 14, a very enlightening study develops. It outlines the fullness of the Godhead through the different aspects of Christ's character and position as the Son of God and the Son of man -- the Second Adam, the Creator and the Re-creator.

Let us compare the Three Angels' Messages with the Threefold Seal in the light of the "Mystery of the God" being finished/revealed. In point form they are:

1) GOD -- The Father, the Creator -- Jesus Christ created all things. He is the Alpha, the Author, the Creator and our Everlasting Father. "If you have seen Me you have seen the Father. I and the Father are One." (John 14). He is not only the Express Image of His Father, but, He is the Creator and the Father of mankind.

2) NEW JERUSALEM -- The Mother, The Re-Creator -- Another Comforter in My name (Jesus Christ); Another Parent, Another Adam, the Second Adam's Eve, the Daughter of the Jerusalem above. She is the Omega, the Finisher, the Re-Creator, Christ the Holy Ghost, the Mother of All Living (those born of the His Spirit). Christ in you, the hope of glory. The Daughter is not only the Express Image of Her Divine Mother, but She is the Mother of All Re-Created Beings in the universe.

3) A GLORIOUS STAR CONTAINING JESUS' NEW NAME -- The Star of David, will contain His New Name Solomon - Melchizedek, King of Peace -- and this Seal of Solomon will be a symbol of His Authority and Kingdom when He marries His Sister and Bride, the Holy Ghost, Shulamite, the Daughter of David. MELCHIZEDEK means both King and Queen of righteousness and peace. Therefore, this Glorious Star will contain His and Her New Name, King and Queen of Peace and will be the Seal of Their Glorious Kingdom Family.

THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS IN REVELATION CHAPTER 14

1) GOD -- THE CREATOR

"And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." -- Revelation 14:6,7

WORSHIP GOD -- HE THAT MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH -- CHRIST OUR LORD; for the HOUR of HIS JUDGMENT HAS COME. Christ the High Priest becomes a Judge, and He comes to Judge His Church after He ceases His blood ministration in the Heavenly Sanctuary. All in His earthly Body of Believers have been sealed; some unto righteousness and others unto unrighteousness. He comes to the earth on His Judicial Throne to give to them their just reward.

2) NEW JERUSALEM -- THE BRIDE OF CHRIST

"And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication." -- Revelation 14:8

THE NEW JERUSALEM -- THE BRIDE OF CHRIST IS REVEALED IN HER FULLNESS. Jesus ceases His blood ministration in the Heavenly Sanctuary and establishes His Judicial Throne in the earth. Pouring out His Spirit upon the church, He separates the saints from the sinners, and the Holy Ghost purifies and empowers His Body Temple. Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots falls because her blood covering has been taken away at the change of Christ's ministration. Her abominations will not stand when the whole earth is lightened by the last great message about the Bride of Christ, the Holy Ghost, the Mother of All Living. The Pure Woman calls to Her children to come out from among unholy and unrighteous into Her purified Church Family.

3) A GLORIOUS STAR -- THE STAR OF DAVID -- SOLOMON'S SEAL

"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." -- Revelation 14:9, 10

THE TRUE SEAL OF GOD -- SOLOMON'S SEAL -- A GLORIOUS STAR CONTAINING JESUS THE CREATOR'S AND JESUS THE RECREATOR'S NEW NAME - EXPOSES THE FALSE MARK OF THE FALSE KING SATAN.

This SEAL or ENSIGN depicts the Heavenly and the earthly House of David as ONE FAMILY. SOLOMON BEN DAVID, THE SON OF GOD, THE PRINCE OF PEACE reveals that HE HAS COME WHOSE RIGHT IT IS TO RULE THE KINGDOM OF GOD UNDER THE WHOLE HEAVEN. HE ESTABLISHES HIS KINGDOM OF GLORY, MADE UP OF THE GLORIFIED REDEEMED, LIVING AND DEAD.

THE SABBATH SEAL

"The Sabbath is not introduced as a new institution but as having been founded at creation. It is to be remembered and observed as the memorial of the Creator's work. Pointing to God as the Maker of the heavens and the earth, it distinguishes the true God from all false gods. All who keep the seventh day signify this act that they are worshippers of Jehovah. Thus the Sabbath is the sign of man's allegiance to God as long as there are any upon the earth to serve Him. The fourth commandment is the only one of the ten in which are found both the name and the title of the Lawgiver. It is the only one that shows by whose authority the law is given. Thus it contains the seal of God, affixed to His law as evidence of its authenticity and binding force." -- Patriarchs and Prophets p 307

The KINGDOM is legally set up in the earth when the KING SITS ON HIS THRONE OF JUDGMENT AND PRESENTS HIS SEAL WITH HIS NAME IN IT. All that accept Him and receive the THREEFOLD SEAL IN THEIR FOREHEADS or believe in the threefold truth it contains will be clothed in His glorious robe of righteousness by the Holy Ghost and inducted into HIS GLORIOUS KINGDOM CHURCH FAMILY.

The Beast system of government of course will accept all those who receive not the SEAL OF GOD, but instead, the mark of the beast. The ROYAL HOUSE OF DAVID, UNDER THE REIGN OF KING SOLOMON the SON of GOD will ultimately consume this beast system. Satan's kingdom will be obliterated by the rightful owner and Creator of this earth. It is the only planet that is not completely inhabited by the Righteous Family of God.

THE REST OF THE STORY

As Seventh-day Adventists we only look at the first three angels in this chapter to substantiate and uphold our reason for being a denomination. We need to preach the gospel in its fullness! Or better said, " We need to preach Jesus Christ as the fullness of the Godhead bodily". Let us look at the remainder of the chapter to see what the other angels or messengers with messages are revealing to us about Jesus Christ.

"All classes of second advent believers agree, that the angel brought to view in the 6th, and 7th verses of this chapter (Revelation Chapter 14), represents the advent message, to the church and the world. If this is true, then ALL FIVE OF THE ANGELS brought to view in this chapter, represent FIVE DISTINCT MESSAGES, PRIOR TO THE ADVENT, or we are left without a rule to interpret this chapter....The last two messages are messages of prayer. We shall, no doubt, better understand them at the time of their fulfillment." -- A Word To the Little Flock, p 10, 11, Article entitled, Thoughts on Revelation 14 by James White, endorsed by Ellen G. White.

ONE LIKE UNTO THE SON OF MAN, HAVING A GOLDEN CROWN AND A SHARP SICKLE

"And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle." Revelation 14:14

The Son of Man, the Second Adam, the Man Whose Name is the Branch (Zechariah 6:12, 13), the Son of the Heavenly David, has received His CROWN OF GLORY, HIS BRIDE, THE HOLY GHOST and a KINGDOM.

HE shall BUILD THE TEMPLE of the LORD the HOLY GHOST out of LIVELY STONES which have been hewed and squared BY HIS OWN HANDS through the INTERCESSION OF HIS BLOOD. But, these stones must now be sanctified and purified through the SPRINKLING OF THE WATER OF SEPARATION THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF THE HOLY GHOST, THE FINISHER OF HIS WORK OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. She must cleanse HER HOUSE or dwelling place made up of lively stones, earthen vessels.

In this verse we see the Son of Man sitting upon a cloud, HIS JUDGMENT THRONE, with a GOLDEN CROWN signifying that He has been CROWNED with GLORY and HONOR - MARRIED TO THE HOLY GHOST - and HE has a SHARP SICKLE in His hand signifying that He has an INSTRUMENT or MESSAGE to HARVEST or REAP (the firstfruits in the Church in the earth, prophetic USA). The Firstfruit Harvest is made up of two sections or increments, 1) the Barley Harvest comprised of First of the Firstfruits, the Wavesheaf of Barley and then the rest of the BaS. the Wheat Harvest comprised of the Firstfruits, the Waveloaves a thank offering and then the rest of the Wheat. As the Wavesheaf and the 120 were a type nineteen centuries ago, their antitype will be fulfilled in the latter day harvest. The antitypical Wavesheaf of the living and the 144,000 living saints will be offered as the thank offerings of the First Fruit (grain) Harvest of Israelites.

THE MESSAGE this ANGEL BRINGS to JUDGE the CHURCH is about the SON of GOD RECEIVING HIS GLORY, A CROWN, A BRIDE, A KINGDOM, A CHURCH, HIS SECOND SELF, THE HOLY GHOST. Those that receive the THREEFOLD SEAL will be REAPED and placed into the BARN, KINGDOM, CHURCH, the BODY of CHRIST - the LIVELY TEMPLE of the HOLY GHOST.

ANOTHER ANGEL COMES OUT OF THE TEMPLE

"And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped." -- Revelation 14:15, 16

This ANGEL comes out of the Sanctuary - a feminine symbol - signifying a feminine Messenger with a Message about ANOTHER COMFORTER (PARENT), ANOTHER ADAM, ANOTHER WOMAN, THE DAUGHTER OF JERUSALEM, THE HOLY GHOST. SHE tells HER PARTNER ON THE CLOUD, that HER WORK, THE LATTER RAIN has RIPENED the GRAIN and that the HARVEST of the EARTH is RIPE. SHE CRIES WITH A LOUD VOICE - THE LOUD CRY MESSAGE - "THRUST in THY SICKLE, and REAP, for the TIME has come for THEE to REAP, for the HARVEST of the EARTH is RIPE". SHE has RIPENED the GRAIN and SHE KNOWS the TIME of HARVEST.

The female has a built in biological clock to know the time and she is governed by time and rules over it. Mother nature's time clock is God's time piece. When the HOLY GHOST HAS MADE ALL THINGS READY, SHE TELLS GOD'S SON SOLOMON TO REAP and bring the GUESTS to THEIR MARRIAGE SUPPER. HE JUDGES the CHURCH of the FIRSTBORN - THE ISRAEL of GOD - and then the GENTILE WORLD.

Now we have a complete picture of the MALE and FEMALE MESSIAH, SACRIFICE, INTERCESSOR, BRIDEGROOM and BRIDE, the SECOND ADAM and EVE. What a Glorious Message! These TWO ANGELS, CHRIST and the HOLY GHOST, work together bringing the MESSAGE of SOLOMON the PRINCE and KING of the KINGDOM of PEACE and GLORY. The SONG of SOLOMON tells us that SOLOMON'S SISTER IS HIS BRIDE. Therefore, THEY have a TWOFOLD MESSAGE about SOLOMON (male and female), and LIGHTEN the WHOLE EARTH with THEIR GLORIOUS MESSAGE and THEIR GLORIOUS KINGDOM of PEACE and RIGHTEOUSNESS.

ANOTHER ANGEL CAME OUT OF THE TEMPLE

"And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle." -- Revelation 14:17

This OTHER ANGEL, the HOLY GHOST, has a SICKLE or MESSAGE for the SECOND FRUITS in the world. It is the SAME MESSAGE of the BRIDE and MOTHER OF ALL LIVING, but this time it is for the GENTILES in the world. Those that receive this MESSAGE of the HOLY GHOST will be gathered OUT of BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS, BY the PURE WOMAN into the PURE CHURCH.

ANOTHER ANGEL CAME OUT FROM THE ALTAR

"And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs." -- Revelation 14:18-20

This signifies that the HOLY GHOST who stands at the ALTAR of INCENSE in the SANCTUARY (She takes our prayers with groanings that cannot be uttered and intercedes as they rise like a sweet smelling savour before our Judge, Jesus Christ), tells the ANGEL with the SHARP SICKLE to REAP the CLUSTERS of the VINE -- Second Fruits -- of the earth. This begins the JUDGMENT of the LIVING in the GENTILE WORLD. The MESSAGE of CHRIST and the HOLY GHOST will be presented to the WORLD. Those that accept CHRIST and the HOLY GHOST as their Creators and Re-Creators, their Father and Mother, will inherit the KINGDOM and be ADOPTED and GRAFTED INTO the FAMILY TREE. If they refuse this LAST MESSAGE of MERCY THEY ARE LEFT WITHOUT A COVERING and are DEALT WITH ACCORDINGLY.

THE KINGDOM CHURCH

The Kingdom Church is represented by a King, the Man Whose Name is Branch, Solomon ben David, and a Queen, the Woman Whose Name is Branch, Shulamite bat David. TWO BRANCHES, of the TREE of LIFE, Two BRANCHES of the RIVER of LIFE, EVERGROWING and EVERFLOWING in the earth (Jeremiah 23:5, 6; 33:15, 16; Ezekiel 47). THEY will conduct the JUDGMENT and the HARVEST, first in the CHURCH and then in the WORLD.

THE DAUGHTER OF JERUSALEM AND ZION IN THE LAST DAYS

"But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem." -- Micah 4:1, 2

"But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it. In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;" -- Micah 4:4, 6

"And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever. And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem. Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail." -- Micah 4:7-9

"Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies. Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion." -- Micah 4:10, 11

"But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor. Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth." -- Micah 4:12, 13

THE HOUSE OF DAVID SHALL AGAIN BE IN ZION

"In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them." -- Zechariah 12:8. The HOUSE of DAVID shall be as the ANGEL(S) of the LORD(S). Whatever shall be bound on earth shall be bound in Heaven, and whatever is loosed on earth shall be loosed in Heaven.

"Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; a day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them." -- Joel 2:1-3

"Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run up wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief." -- Joel 2:6, 9

"The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: and the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?" -- Joel 2:10, 11

"Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: and rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil." -- Joel 2:12, 13

" Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:" (Day of Atonement) Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet." (Feast of Tabernacles - Marriage Reception) -- Joel 2:15, 16

"Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give notthine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?" -- Joel 2:17

"Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, (an abundance of present truth) and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:" -- Joel 2:18, 19

"Fear not, O land (in Israel); be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things. Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength." -- Joel 2:21, 22

"Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month." (Former truth of Christ and the Latter Truth of Christ the Holy Ghost come in the first month, at the time the Mighty Angel will Passover all those that have received this message and have cleansed their hearts of leaven and are eating the Lord's Supper, "not with old leaven but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth." 1 Corinthians 5:7, 8. Those that do not partake worthily of the Lord's Sacrament will be cut off, and separated from the true Israel of God.) -- Joel 2:23

"And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil." (abundance of Truth) And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you." (the years under Satan's yoke) And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed." -- Joel 2:24-26

"And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:" (Many true prophets in the land of Israel) -- Joel 2:27, 28

"And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come." -- Joel 2:29-31

"And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call." (Christ shall Judge the world from His Judicial Throne, the Ark of the Covenant, on Mount Zion in Jerusalem) -- Joel 2:32

"For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and JerusalemI will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land." -- Joel 3:1, 2

"Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompense? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompense upon your own head; because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things:" -- Joel 3:4, 5

"The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompense upon your own head:" -- Joel 3:6, 7

"And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it." -- Joel 3:8

"Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong." -- Joel 3:9, 10

"Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about." -- Joel 3:11, 12

"Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision." (Judgment for the living in the world before the millennium. They still need to decide life or death; their probation has not yet closed) -- Joel 3:13, 14

"The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel." -- Joel 3:16

"So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more." (No sinners) -- Joel 3:17

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim." (The Fountain of Living Waters Ezekiel chapter 47) -- Joel 3:18

"But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion." -- Joel 3:20, 21

A PHYSICAL AND A SPIRITUAL KINGDOM

He will cleanse the sins of the Jews that finally receive Him as Messiah when He pours out His Shekhinah Glory upon the House of Israel. The Glorious Presence will be visibly seen in their midst over the Ark of the Covenant, the Earthly Throne of the Son and Daughter of Heavenly David, in Zion - the City of the Great King.

From Zion shall go forth the Law and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem. The Kingdom and the Glory of the Kingdom will be seen by all nations as a light upon a hill. These Gentile nations will come up to the mountain of the Lord to learn His ways and become part of the Kingdom of Peace and Glory. After all the fruit of the Harvest of Souls have been gathered in to the Kingdom or Garner of God, then destruction and death will come to all who refuse Salvation. The Lords of Hosts will then take Their trophies to heaven for the millennial rest.

After the millennium the New Jerusalem will descend upon the earth. Satan will be loosed from his chains and the wicked of all ages will be resurrected. Satan will rally all the wicked to come up to take the New Jerusalem. Jesus and the Holy Ghost will then devour the unrighteous, root and branch. They will receive the second death. Then a New Heavens and a New earth will be created where all the righteous will live with Christ and the Holy Ghost in their midst. Praise ye the Lords of Hosts forever more!!!
