Revelation Beatitudes of the Everlasting Gospel – Part 3

Revelation 14:6,7
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, [7] 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.

There are seven beatitude blessings in Revelation. The third blessing is obtained by a vigilant effort on the part of church members to live a Bible directed life that will cause them to be rewarded with glorious outer apparel in heaven.

The Hebrew culture was such that you could tell the social status of a person by the clothes he or she wore. The men worn an undergarment that had sleeves and come down to just above the knees or one that looked something like a breechcloth wrapped around his loins and his waist. When a man only had this attire on he was considered to be “naked.” The garment that people saw him wear in public was like a loose one piece dress well below the knees with a large leather belt or sash to gird it at his waist. There were variations of this type of visible outer garment. Those who were of higher social status worn a sleeved coat, cape, or robe over the outer garment. These garments were often used in the Bible to parallel heavenly garments that would be worn by the future residents depending on their faithfulness or unfaithfulness to God. Hence, throughout the writings of the New Testament, there is much emphasis placed on heavenly attire being a blessing for those whose faith endured to the end.

Revelation 16:15
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

Believers now live in a temporary house, tabernacle, or temple. The house, tabernacle, or temple body they will occupy in heaven will manifest the degree to which they glorified God in this life, and the attire they are given to wear will eternally manifest their degree of faithfulness for all eternity.

I Corinthians 6:19,20
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? [20] For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
The Greek word translated “accepted” in the following verses means “well pleasing.”

II Corinthians 5:1-10
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. [2] For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: [3] If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. [4] For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. [5] Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. [6] Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: [7] (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) [8] We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. [9] Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. [10] For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

WORSE THAN I EVER THOUGHT!

Look Out All Worldwide Offshore Platforms!

Seafloor oil shafts break in Tribulation Period

I did not even think of it when I wrote Tectonic

Chaos, Tribulation Triad, and Birth Pang Books

But the current Gulf fiasco now has my Attention

So the Great Tribulation is worse than I Thought!

THERE WERE APPROXIMATELY 8,300 FIXED OR FLOATING OFFSHORE PLATFORMS WORLDWIDE IN 1999.

DO YOU THINK THEY CAN SURVIVE THE FOLLOWING SCRIPTURES?

Isaiah 29:6
Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

Luke 21:25-27
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; [26] Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. [27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

THE FIRST EARTHQUAKE IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION

Revelation 6:14
And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

THE LAST EARTHQUAKE IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION

Revelation 16:20
And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

During the Tribulation period, when oil concentration clumps are heavy enough to sink and make contact with magma along the world’s tectonic plate boundaries, or when the magma rises in volcanoes high enough to reach the oil level in the upper ocean waters, the oil will explode and burn, leaving on the surface a rusty red maize.

THE FOLLOWING IS WHAT I WROTE ABOUT THE EFFECT OF VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS ON LAND AND SEA DURING THE LAST THREE AND ONE-HALF YEARS BEFORE ARMAGEDDON. I BELIEVE WHAT I WROTE WILL HAPPEN AS I INDICATED, BUT I DID NOT CONSIDER THE EFFECT OF TECTONIC PLATE SHIFTING ON THE OCEAN FLOOR OIL WELLS, WHICH WILL KILL MORE AQUATIC LIFE THAN HEMATITE OXIDATION AND DINOFLAGELLATE, PLUS TURN MORE SEA SURFACE WATERS A RUSTY RED COLOR.

BEGIN QUOTE OF WHAT I WROTE IN THE SEVENTIES

Please take a look in our Birth Pang Figures found in our Archives for the several Figures referenced in this and other chapters in this updated 1977 book. Figure 3 shows the world’s tectonic plates. Figures 4 to 8 also apply to this chapter.

Revelation 8:7
The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Revelation 8:7 does not mix frozen hailstones with fire. It mixes large volcanic bombs (hail) and fiery blood-red lava. I believe what John witnessed was a worldwide pattern of volcanic eruptions around the edges of the tectonic plates. This verse is a perfect description of a chain of volcanic eruptions. As the volcanic bombs (hail) are thrown great distances from the caldera vents, fires are started, and as the fiery lava moves across the surface of the earth it burns up everything in its path. I challenge you to view films of an actual eruption and then not believe this is what John saw in his vision from God. (See Archives – Birth Pang 3)

Revelation 8:8,9
And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; [9] And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

A fuller, more descriptive, rendering of part of this verse from “The Bible in Basic English,” Dutton, 1950, Cambridge Press, is as follows: “It was as if a great mountain burning with fire had been cast into the sea.” Again, I believe the great fiery mountain that suddenly appeared in the sea would naturally have been assumed to come from above to the one abruptly seeing it there (See Archives – Birth Pang 4). This was the first of thousands that will be rapidly appearing along the plate borders of the tectonic plates, building up from the ocean sea floors to break the sea surface. The resultant action of rapid heating of the ocean above these volcanic vents will discolor one-third of the sea water into a murky rusty-red maze of aquatic death by the smothering effect of the basaltic hematite oxidation, and generate an ocean wide population explosion of dinoflagellate, which will produce the deadly red tide. (See Archives – Birth Pang 4)

The earthquakes and volcanic eruptions on the ocean and sea floors will produce the collapse and/or rise of segments of the ocean sea floor, and some massive sliding of parts of the coastal land mass into the oceans. And these actions will produce hundreds of Tsunami waves along those coastal areas of the world that have an abruptly rising coastline. (See Archives – Birth Pang 5) Furthermore, I assure you when the massive shifting of the tectonic plates begins, then this seismic wave action would destroy any ships in port. At any given time about two-thirds of the world’s shipping is under way on the open sea, and one-third is in port. The one third in port will be utterly destroyed by gigantic Tsunami waves like the coastal residents of the world have never seen.

Luke 21:25
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

It never once crossed my mind as to the effect thousands of miles of tectonic plate boundaries would have on high concentrations of oil blobs carried over them by the currents of the oceans and seas of the world. I simply did not even think about the effects the rupture of the oil lines would produce, but believe me I am now in the process of considering it.

If they do not stop the leak soon it is possible high concentrations of blobs of tar-like oil could make contact with the magma pushing up out of the tectonic plates on the sea floor in places with temps as high as 1600 Degrees Centigrade. Additionally, there are thousands of submerged sea mount volcanoes across the sea floors of the world for possible oil blob contacts during the Tribulation Period. I do not expect the current Gulf oil leak to build up sufficient concentrations for this to happen, and it is a long way north of the nearest plate boundary, but I assure you it will happen during the Tribulation Period.

According to a recent report by the U.S. National Research Council (NRC), there were about 8,300 fixed or floating offshore platforms worldwide in 1999. The UNEP Offshore Oil and Gas Environment Forum (OEF) gives these figures: more than 6,500 offshore oil and gas installations worldwide, about 4,000 of which in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, 950 in Asia, 700 in the Middle East and 400 in Europe.

These platforms cannot be made stable enough to prevent the breaking of the lines on the ocean floor during the fantastic worldwide pattern of heavy earthquakes associated with the tectonic plate movements.

The oil which pours out of these ocean floor wells will go through a chemical and burning mixing process which will turn the oceans and seas of the world into a rusty red liquid toxic water surface that looks like blood and kills aquatic ocean life.

The oil releases, hematite oxidation, and dimoflagellate poisons will kill most of the world’s aquatic in the oceans and seas of this planet. And some of its effects will be carried to inland waters by hurricanes, tsunamis, and the hydrological cycle.

Revelation 8:8,9
And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; [9] And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

Revelation 16:3,4
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. [4] And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

Revelation Beatitudes of the Everlasting Gospel – Part 2A

November 5, 2018

Revelation 14:6,7
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, [7] 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.

Hebrews 11:36-40
And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: [37] They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; [38] (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. [39] And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: [40] God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

There are many saved, both Old and New Testament, who are still waiting for the first resurrection, and the robes for their labors, on the opening of the sixth seal, but they will have to wait until many of their tribulation brethren are martyred prior to the sounding of the seventh trumpet.

Revelation 6:9-11
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: [10] And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? [11] And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Salt is known for its savour, so if it has lost its savor, it is of no value to the one who uses it. Children of God are known by their ability to suffer, but if they have lost that ability to suffer, then they are of no value to the one who uses them, or to the ones who see their lack of faith in the God they profess to believe.

Matthew 5:11-19
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. [12] Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. [13] Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. [14] Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. [15] Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. [16] Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. [17] Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. [18] For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. [19] Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Please note that both of these individuals are in heaven, so this is not about keeping the commandments to go to heaven. A saved person who keeps and teaches God’s commandments will be more highly esteemed in heaven than a man who did not.

Revelation Beatitudes of the Everlasting Gospel – Part 2

October 29, 2018

Revelation 14:6,7
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, [7] 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.

There are seven beatitude blessings in Revelation. The second promises a blessing to those whose good works do follow them.

Revelation 14:13
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

Patiently laboring in the work of the Lord, enduring to death of the flesh, will determine the size or degree of the reward at the judgment seat of Christ, and it will be a reward that lasts for all eternity.

I Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Hebrews 10:35-37
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. [36] For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. [37] For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
Enduring faith in heavenly things hoped for, but not yet seen, are the substance and evidence of a genuine faith that produces a good report for the believer. It is the good report that assures us we will receive the reward of our labor, when we are made perfect in body, soul, and spirit at the first resurrection by his amazing grace.

Hebrews 11:1,2,39,40
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [2] For by it the elders obtained a good report.
[39] And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: [40] God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
All the saved will be made perfect in body, soul, and spirit at the first resurrection when the Son of man reaps the earth.

Revelation 14:12-16
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. [13] And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. [14] 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. [15] 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. [16] And he that sat on the cloud thrust IN his sickle ON the earth; and the earth was reaped.

The Old and New Testament saved will receive the promise at the first resurrection, and their reward will reflect the degree of their labors and suffering in his service.

Revelation Beatitudes of the Everlasting Gospel – Part 1A

October 25, 2018

Revelation 14:6,7
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, [7] 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.

Acts 2:41-47
Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. [42] And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. [43] And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. [44] And all that believed were together, and had all things common; [45] And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. [46] And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, [47] Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Those who have such an attitude are those who seek the kingdom of God, and are not guilty of hoarding up treasure on the earth instead of trusting God for their security. The kingdom of God, for which they wait, is greater in their desires than the desire for the things of this present life.

Luke 12:31-40
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. [32] Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. [33] Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. [34] For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. [35] Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; [36] And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. [37] Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. [38] And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. [39] And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. [40] Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

Ephesians 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

Ephesians 2:6,7
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: [7] That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

Luke 8:15-17
But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. [16] No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. [17] For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

Galatians 6:7
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

II Corinthians 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

I Corinthians 15:38
But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
