Revelation Beatitudes of the Everlasting Gospel – Part 4

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 fourth blessing is written to churches to advise those who belong to them to make themselves ready for the day when they meet the head of each local church face to face. Each church member weaves his own outer garment by the degree of glory God receives by his or her service in one of his Son’s churches.

I have a lot of questions to ask you on this subject? And you are the one who I am asking to supply the answers? I am not going to supply the answers, but I do believe you should ask yourself these questions, because there are going to be a lot of things that go on in your future eternal life in another place, and those who are wise do make themselves ready for it by the power of Christ in them.

Revelation 19:7-9
Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. [8] And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. [9] And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

So where has his saved wife “made herself ready” by giving him glory in this present life?

Ephesians 3:21
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

I John 3:2
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Have you ever considered the possibility that the degree of glory manifested in your new glorified body might be directly proportional to the degree of glory received by God by Christ Jesus in the local church?

I Corinthians 15:38-41
But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. [39] All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. [40] There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. [41] There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. [42] So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

Did you ever consider the possibility that some glorified bodies at the first resurrection might shine in differing degrees of glory, depending on the degree of submission to the Spirit they exhibited as God’s children.

Daniel 12:3
And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Is it possible that as God’s children walk their walk in one of his local churches, as they hear and apply his word to their walk by his power, he is washing their outer garment by the power of his word? Could this be the process by which “they that be wise” became wise in believing and applying his word to their lives? Could these be the wise people whose lives turned many to the righteousness of the Lord they saw in them?

Ephesians 5:25-27,30
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; [26] That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, [27] That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. [30] For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Ephesians 2:22
In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Is it possible that church members who do not continue faithful will live outside the heavenly city of the New Jerusalem?
