—The New Heaven's Children!—Chapter 3!7/86DFO 2252
1. WELL, PRAISE THE LORD! GOD BLESS YOU! HERE'S GRANDPA AGAIN WITH ANOTHER ONE OF HIS GRANDPA STORIES ABOUT HEAVEN & THE FUTURE‚ AS I SEE IT! As you remember, we were just getting settled in our beautiful new mansion on one of Heaven's walls with all of you loved ones there with us & nearby‚ & enjoying its pleasures & luxuries & beauties & love & loveliness & food, fun & fellowship!
2. WE'RE JUST BARELY GETTING ACCUSTOMED & ORIENTED TO ALL OF THESE NEW THINGS & THIS WONDERFUL NEW HEAVENLY WAY OF LIFE & LOVE, after having been Raptured together out of the horrors of the End of the Great Tribulation on Earth below, saved by the Love of the Lord & His rescue out of it all by a miraculous flight to Heaven with millions of Saints from Earth, both resurrected & translated into the Heavenly Sphere, the "sign of the Son of Man" in Heaven which had been hanging far above the Earth in the Moon for some time!
3. BILLIONS OF SAINTS OF THE PAST HAVE ALREADY BEEN LIVING HERE in this celestial realm long before we arrived, including all the Old Testament Saints who were raised when Jesus was resurrected from the dead & caught up to the Heavenly places at that time with Him. And as each of the Saints of the Christian era of nearly two thousand years passed away‚ they too were caught up into Heaven to be with the Lord. So billions have already been living Here for a long time.
4. SO THERE WERE THESE JOYFUL, HAPPY BILLIONS HERE TO GREET US & welcome us Tribulation Saints as we arrived out of the darkest night of the World's history! We were fleeing from the persecution of the Antichrist & his fiendish forces & devilish dominions, & we are now safely far out of his reach & where no power on Earth could ever harm us again!
5. WELL, THE WORD HAS FINALLY COME WITH A GREAT SHOUT THAT THIS IS OUR WEDDING DAY! We are being summoned to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, Christ Jesus, our Lord & Saviour & Bridegroom forever! So we are prepared as His Bride in beautiful white robes of linen that scintillate like robes of light! We stream out of our mansions throughout this entire great City from its greatest heights to its widest breadths, flying & swarming like bees out of a hive as we descend from our various levels of our homes throughout this immense building, 1500 miles high & 1500 miles square!—Pyramid-shaped & so large that its walls alone have a capacity of over 500 billion inhabitants! And it's not nearly full yet, because there are many many more coming in the beautiful‚ wonderful ages yet to come!
6. THANK GOD WE'RE ABLE TO FLY, because elevators & escalators could not possibly accommodate us! We are told now that there will not even be room for the giant spaceships which were once called "flying saucers" on Earth, neither the small, individual gondolas for a family & small groups. We must all fly to this great, gigantic General Assembly in the bowl-shaped amphitheatre of the blue Crystal Sea beneath the City itself in the bottom of this beautiful blue crystal sphere which completely surrounds our gigantic city!
7. THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE LARGE ENOUGH in which we can all assemble around the Throne of the Lord for the very most important meetings of all in this General Assembly of the Saints, this huge Throne Room in what is like the basement of the City!
8. THE SMALL THRONE room at the apex of the City which we described before, is only for very small assemblies such as Council Meetings of the 24 Elders & the Archangels & receptions‚ such as small groups of newcomers of only a few hundred.
9. BUT NOW THIS MEETING MUST ACCOMMODATE LITERALLY MILLIONS upon millions of both Saints & Angels—hundreds of millions of Angels, as well as billions of Saints! The only place here sufficient to accommodate such an immense crowd is here on the Crystal Sea beneath the very foundations of our Heavenly City‚ this huge, bowl-shaped portion of the bottom of the blue Crystal Ball which protects our great City above, & from which we can see through the transparent sphere & have the best possible view of the Earth below!
10. AS YOU REMEMBER, THE CITY'S BASE IS KEPT TOWARD THE EARTH to help protect it from Man's wicked devices & satellites & missiles, etc., which bounce off of our sphere like grains of sand & are totally useless in any attack upon this, our gigantic heavenly spaceship, the Mothership of our tremendous heavenly Family!
11. SO WE'RE ALL EXCITED & THRILLED & EXPECTANT & WONDERING, JUST LIKE A BRIDE‚ about what our Great Bridegroom has in store for us at this first General Assembly of all His Saints up to this time‚ & what thrills & excitement & ecstasies that He has in store for us at this great formal, official Wedding Celebration & Feast for His Saints!
12. SO WE ALL FLOW SMOOTHLY DOWN TOWARD THE VARIOUS GATES OF THE CITY as gracefully & beautifully & peacefully as we can, so well organised by our leaders, Saints & Angels, & flow through the Gates in seemingly endless streams out into the beautiful crystal blue sphere outside, then swooping down beneath the base of the City to this huge‚ bowl-shaped auditorium! This is where another Throne of the Lord Himself stands, surrounded by the gigantic creatures who represent His power, & His mighty Angels & the 24 special Elders‚ the representatives of all His Saints surrounding His Throne & the Holy Family in the center of it all! It's a virtual theater-in-the-round with a circular stage in the middle surrounded by miles & miles of a bowl–shaped amphitheatre for the best possible view by all!
13. THIS HEAVENLY BOWL—NOT "HOLLYWOOD BOWL" BUT HEAVENLY BOWL—is so huge that in the bottom of it you are hundreds of miles below the base of the City itself! We all stand here on this marvellous concave crystal blue sea waiting to see what is going to happen next! I could not but wonder how in the World we were ever going to see the Lord, much less hear Him, considering the tremendous distances here all around, hundreds & hundreds of miles of sea covered by millions & millions of Saints! But I was soon to find out, thank the Lord!
14. BY SOME MAGICAL MEANS OR SUPER NATURAL POWERS, THE LORD HIMSELF & HIS HOLY FAMILY, surrounded by these giant creatures of His power & His Angels & Archangels & 24 Elders were amazingly amplified & enlarged in size in the center of the bowl so that we could all see them clearly from any distance—some even on the outer edges of the crowd, hundreds of miles away! The Holy Family appeared in giant form in the middle of it all, so that we could all easily be able to observe the events which were transpiring before our very eyes! Now we were to hear from the Lord Himself! Praise God! Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus! Amen!
15. WORDS‚ ESPECIALLY MY WORDS, COULD HARDLY DO JUSTICE TO THIS TREMENDOUS, COLOSSAL, STUPENDOUS, GIGANTIC HEAVENLY SCENE!—To use some Hollywood superlatives. None of those words could possibly describe in its full enormity & magnificence the Heavenly show we were about to witness! It was bigger & mightier than any Earthly extravaganza or Hollywood spectacular of any kind! In fact, as I say, my poor limited lingual capacity is hardly sufficient to describe the scene that we're now observing.
16. SO LET ME HAVE THE GREAT PROPHET OF THE EARLY CHRISTIAN ERA, Saint John Himself—Saint John the Beloved, Saint John the Divine, Saint John the Revelator, author of the Apocalypse or the Book of Revelation—allow me to let him describe it to you in his own words as already so faithfully recorded in the Bible:
17. "AND BEHOLD, A THRONE WAS SET IN HEAVEN‚ & ONE SAT ON THE THRONE! And He that sat was to look upon like a jasper & a sardine stone"—like diamonds‚ etc. In other words, the Lord glows like a diamond! "And there was a rainbow round about the Throne, in sight like unto an emerald." A green rainbow—think of that! "And round about the Throne were four & twenty Thrones: & upon the Thrones I saw Four & Twenty Elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; & they had on their heads crowns of gold!" (Rev.4:2-4)
18. NOW THE CROWNS WE HAD BEEN GIVEN UPON OUR ARRIVAL Here are beautiful crowns of light, commonly known on Earth as halos. But these top human officials of Heaven who represent us all in the Throne Room of the Lord & the counsels of God, their crowns look like golden halos of light!
19. "AND OUT OF THE THRONE PROCEEDED LIGHTNINGS & THUNDERINGS & VOICES: & there were seven lamps of fire burning before the Throne, which are the Seven Spirits of God. And before the Throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: & in the midst of the Throne, & round about the Throne were Four Beasts full of eyes before & behind!
20. "AND THE FIRST BEAST WAS LIKE A LION, & the Second Beast like a Calf, & the Third Beast had a face like a Man, & the Fourth Beast was like a flying Eagle! And the Four Beasts had each of them six wings about him; & they were full of eyes within: & they rest not day & night, saying, 'Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, & is, & is to come'!
21. "AND WHEN THOSE BEASTS GIVE GLORY & honour & thanks to Him that sat on the Throne, Who liveth for ever & ever, the Four & Twenty Elders fall down before Him that sat on the Throne, & worship Him that liveth for ever & ever, & cast their crowns before the Throne, saying‚ 'Thou art worthy‚ O Lord, to receive glory & honour & power: for Thou hast created all things, & for Thy pleasure they are & were created!'" (Rev.4:5-11)
22. "AND THE FOUR BEASTS & FOUR & TWENTY ELDERS FELL DOWN BEFORE THE LAMB, having every one of them harps, & golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of the Saints. And they sung a new song‚ 'For Thou wast slain & hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood out of every kindred‚ & tongue, & people, & nation; And hast made us unto our God kings & priests: & we shall reign on the Earth!'
23. "AND I BEHELD, & I HEARD THE VOICE OF MANY ANGELS ROUND ABOUT THE THRONE & the Beasts & the Elders: & the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand,"—that means a hundred million—"& thousands of thousands;"—that means millions—"Saying with a loud voice, 'Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, & riches, & wisdom, & strength, & honour, & glory, & blessing!'
24. "AND EVERY CREATURE WHICH IS IN HEAVEN, & ON EARTH, & under the Earth, & such as are in the sea, & all that are in them, heard I saying, 'Blessing, & honour, & glory, & power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the Throne, & unto the Lamb for ever & ever!' And the Four Beasts said, 'Amen!' And the Four & Twenty Elders fell down & worshipped Him that liveth for ever & ever!" (Rev.5:8–14)
25. "AFTER THIS I BEHELD, &, LO, A GREAT MULTITUDE, WHICH NO MAN COULD NUMBER, of all nations‚ & kindreds, & people, & tongues, stood before the Throne, & before the Lamb, clothed with white robes‚ & palms in our hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, 'Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the Throne‚ & unto the Lamb!'
26. "AND ALL THE ANGELS STOOD ROUND ABOUT THE THRONE, & about the Elders & the Four Beasts, & fell before the Throne on their faces, & worshipped God! Saying, 'Amen: Blessing & glory, & wisdom, & thanksgiving, & honour, & power‚ & might‚ be unto our God for ever & ever! Amen.'
27. "AND ONE OF THE ELDERS ANSWERED, SAYING UNTO ME, 'WHAT ARE THESE WHICH ARE ARRAYED IN WHITE ROBES? And whence came they?' And I said unto him, 'Sir, thou knowest!' And he said to me, 'These are they which came out of Great Tribulation, & have washed their robes, & made them white in the blood of the Lamb! Therefore are they before the Throne of God‚ & serve Him day & night in His temple: & He that sitteth on the Throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them‚ nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the Throne shall feed them, & shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: & God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes!'" (Rev.7:9-17)
28. "AND THE ANGEL WHICH I SAW STAND UPON THE SEA & UPON THE EARTH LIFTED UP HIS HAND TO HEAVEN, & sware by Him that liveth for ever & ever, Who created Heaven, & the things that therein are, & the Earth‚ & the things that therein are, & the sea, & the things which are therein, that there should be Time no more, but that the Mystery of God is finished, as He hath declared to His servants the Prophets!" (Rev. 10:5-7)
29. "THERE WERE GREAT VOICES IN HEAVEN, SAYING, 'THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD ARE BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD‚ & of His Christ: & He shall reign for ever & ever!' And the Four & Twenty Elders, which sat before God on their thrones, fell upon their faces‚ & worshipped God‚ saying, 'We give Thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, & wast, & art to come; because Thou hast taken to Thee Thy great power, & hast reigned!
30. "'AND THE NATIONS ARE ANGRY‚ & THY WRATH IS COME, & the time of the dead, that they should be judged, & that Thou shouldst give reward unto Thy servants the Prophets, & to the Saints, & them that fear Thy name, small & great; & shouldst destroy them which destroy the Earth!'
31. "AND THE TEMPLE OF GOD WAS OPENED IN HEAVEN, & there was seen in His temple the Ark of the Covenant: & there were lightnings‚ & voices, & thunderings, & an earthquake, & great hail!" (Rev.11:15-19)
32. "AND I HEARD A VOICE FROM HEAVEN, as the voice of many waters, & as the voice of a great thunder: & I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the Throne, & before the Four Beasts, & the Elders!" (Rev.14:2,3)
33. "AND I SAW ANOTHER SIGN IN HEAVEN, GREAT & MARVELLOUS, SEVEN ANGELS HAVING THE SEVEN LAST PLAGUES; for in them is filled up the Wrath of God! And I saw as it were a Sea of Glass mingled with fire: & them that had gotten the victory over the Beast (the Antichrist), & over his Image, & over his Mark, & over the number of his name, stand on the Sea of Glass‚ having the harps of God!
34. "AND THEY SING THE SONG OF MOSES the servant of God, & the song of the Lamb, saying, 'Great & marvellous are Thy works‚ Lord God Almighty; just & true are Thy ways, Thou King of Saints! Who shall not fear Thee, O Lord, & glorify Thy name? For Thou only art holy: for all nations shall come & worship before Thee; for Thy judgements are made manifest!'
35. "AND AFTER THAT I LOOKED, & BEHOLD, THE TEMPLE OF THE TABERNACLE OF THE TESTIMONY in Heaven was opened:"—That's the Ark of the Covenant which was caught up to Heaven, if you recall‚ when God rejected the Jews after their crucifixion of His Son Jesus! [Mat.27:23; Luk.23:23,24; Acts 2:23; 2Thes.2:15.] And as you recall, the veil of the temple, the Jewish temple of Jerusalem, was rent in twain so they could see inside that the Ark of the Covenant was gone & that the very presence, the Shekinah Glory‚ of God was gone, that God had forsaken these who were no longer His people, but who had killed their own Messiah! [Mat.8:11,12.]
36. "AND THE SEVEN ANGELS CAME OUT OF THE TEMPLE, HAVING THE SEVEN PLAGUES, clothed in pure & white linen‚ & having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the Four Beasts gave unto the Seven Angels seven golden vials full of the Wrath of God, Who liveth for ever & ever! And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, & from His power; & no man was able to enter into the temple, till the Seven Plagues of the Seven Angels were fulfilled!" (Rev.15)
37. "AND I HEARD A GREAT VOICE OUT OF THE TEMPLE SAYING TO THE SEVEN ANGELS‚ 'GO YOUR WAYS, & POUR OUT THE VIALS OF THE WRATH OF GOD UPON THE EARTH!' And the First went, & poured out his vial upon the Earth: & there fell a noisome & grievous sore upon the men which had the Mark of the Beast, & upon them which worshipped his Image!
38. "AND THE SECOND ANGEL POURED OUT HIS VIAL UPON THE SEA; & it became as the blood of a dead man & every living soul died in the sea! And the Third Angel poured out his vial upon the rivers & fountains of water; & they became blood! And I heard the Angel of the waters say, 'Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, & wast, & shalt be, because Thou hast judged thus! For they have shed the blood of Saints & Prophets, & Thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy!' And I heard another out of the altar say, 'Even so, Lord God Almighty, true & righteous are Thy judgements!'
39. "AND THE FOURTH ANGEL POURED OUT OF HIS VIAL UPON THE SUN; & POWER WAS GIVEN UNTO HIM TO SCORCH MEN WITH FIRE! And men were scorched with great heat, & blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: & they repented not to give Him glory.
40. "AND THE FIFTH ANGEL POURED OUT HIS VIAL UPON THE SEAT OF THE BEAST; & HIS KINGDOM WAS FULL OF DARKNESS; & they gnawed their tongues for pain, & blasphemed the God of Heaven because of their pains & their sores‚ & repented not of their deeds!
41. "AND THE SIXTH ANGEL POURED OUT HIS VIAL UPON THE GREAT RIVER EUPHRATES; & the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the East might be prepared! And I saw Three Unclean Spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the Dragon, & out of the mouth of the Beast, & out of the mouth of the False Prophet! For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the Earth & of the whole World, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty!" (Rev.16:1–14)
42. "AND HE GATHERED THEM TOGETHER INTO A PLACE CALLED IN THE HEBREW TONGUE ARMAGEDDON! And the Seventh Angel poured out his vial into the air; & there came a great voice out of the temple of Heaven, from the Throne, saying, 'It is done!' And there were voices, & thunders, & lightnings; & there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the Earth, so mighty an earthquake‚ & so great!
43. "AND THE GREAT CITY WAS DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS, & the cities of the nations fell: & great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath! And every island fled away & the mountains were not found! And there fell upon men a great hail out of Heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent (104 lbs. or 47 kilos!): & men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great!" (Rev.16:16-21)
44. "AND THERE CAME ONE OF THE SEVEN ANGELS which had the seven vials, & talked with me, saying unto me, 'Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgement of the Great Whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the Earth have committed fornication, & the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication!" (Rev.17:1,2) "And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the Earth!" (Rev.17:18)
45. "AND AFTER THESE THINGS I SAW ANOTHER ANGEL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, having great power; & the whole Earth was lightened with his glory! And he cried mightily with a strong voice‚ saying, 'Babylon is fallen, is fallen, & is become the habitation of devils, & the hold of every foul spirit, & a cage of every unclean & hateful bird!’", meaning the very demons of Hell itself & all the evil, wicked Men of Earth!
46. "FOR ALL NATIONS HAVE DRUNK OF THE WINE OF THE WRATH OF HER FORNICATION, & the kings of the Earth have committed fornication with her, & the merchants of the Earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies! And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, 'Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, & that ye receive not of her plagues.'" Here is another proof that there will be people saved after the Rapture, after we‚ the first Saints, are gone to be with the Lord! That there will be those who are the ones who refuse the Mark of the Beast & refuse to worship his Image & refuse to worship him as God! The Lord is calling them to forsake her completely!
47. "FOR HER SINS HAVE REACHED UNTO HEAVEN, & God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, & double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double!
48. "HOW MUCH SHE HATH GLORIFIED HERSELF, & lived deliciously, so much torment & sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart‚ 'I sit a queen, & am no widow, & shall see no sorrow!' Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death‚ & mourning, & famine; & she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God Who judgeth her!
49. "AND THE KINGS OF THE EARTH, who have committed fornication & lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, & lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, 'Alas‚ alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgement come!’" (Rev.18:1-10)
50. "AND THE MERCHANTS OF THESE THINGS, WHICH WERE MADE RICH BY HER, SHALL STAND AFAR OFF FOR THE FEAR OF HER TORMENT, weeping & wailing, & saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, & purple, & scarlet, & decked with gold & precious stones & pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought!' And every shipmaster, & all the company in ships, & sailors, & as many as trade by sea‚ stood afar off, & cried when they saw the smoke of her burning‚ saying, 'What city is like unto this great city!'
51. "AND THEY CAST DUST ON THEIR HEADS, & cried, weeping & wailing, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! For in one hour is she made desolate!'
52. "REJOICE OVER HER, THOU HEAVEN, & YE HOLY APOSTLES & PROPHETS; FOR GOD HATH AVENGED YOU ON HER! And a mighty Angel took up a stone like a great millstone, & cast it into the sea‚ saying, 'Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, & shall be found no more at all! For thy merchants were the great men of the Earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived! And in her was found the blood of prophets, & of Saints, & of all that were slain upon the Earth!'" (Rev.18:15-21; 23,24)
53. "AND AFTER THESE THINGS I HEARD A GREAT VOICE OF MUCH PEOPLE IN HEAVEN, saying, (sings:) 'Alleluia; Salvation, & glory, & honour, & power, unto the Lord our God: For true & righteous are His judgements: for He hath judged the Great Whore, which did corrupt the Earth with her fornication‚ & hath avenged the blood of His servants at her hand!' And again they said, 'Alleluia!' And her smoke rose up for ever & ever!
54. "AND THE FOUR & TWENTY ELDERS & THE FOUR BEASTS FELL DOWN & WORSHIPPED GOD that sat on the Throne, saying, 'Amen; Alleluia!' And a voice came out of the Throne, saying‚ 'Praise our God‚ all ye servants, & ye that fear Him, both small & great!'
55. "AND I HEARD AS IT WERE THE VOICE OF A GREAT MULTITUDE, & as the voice of many waters, & as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, (sings:) 'Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth! Let us be glad & rejoice, & give honour to Him: for the Marriage of the Lamb is come, & His Wife hath made herself ready!'
56. "AND TO HER WAS GRANTED THAT SHE SHOULD BE ARRAYED IN FINE LINEN‚ clean & white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of the Saints. 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!' (Rev.19:1-9)
57. "AND I SAW HEAVEN OPENED, & BEHOLD, A WHITE HORSE; & He that sat upon him was called Faithful & True, & in righteousness He doth judge & make war! His eyes were as a flame of fire, & on His head were many crowns; & He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself. And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: & His name is called The Word of God!
58. "AND THE ARMIES WHICH WERE IN HEAVEN FOLLOWED HIM UPON WHITE HORSES, all of us clothed in fine linen, white & clean. And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: & He shall rule them with a rod of iron: & He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness & Wrath of God Almighty! And He hath on His vesture & on His thigh a name written, 'King of Kings‚ & Lord of Lords!'
59. "AND I SAW AN ANGEL STANDING IN THE SUN; & he cried with a loud voice‚ saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of Heaven, 'Come & gather yourselves together unto the Supper of the great God! That ye may eat the flesh of kings, & the flesh of captains, & the flesh of mighty men, & the flesh of horses, & of them that sit on them, & the flesh of all men‚ both free & bond, both small & great!'
60. "AND I SAW THE BEAST (THE ANTICHRIST), & THE KINGS OF THE EARTH, & THEIR ARMIES, gathered together to make war against Him that sat on the horse, & against us, His army! And the Beast was taken, & with him the False Prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the Mark of the Beast, & them that worshipped his Image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone! And the remnant were slain with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of His mouth: & all the fowls were filled with their flesh!" (Rev.19:11-21)
61. "AND I SAW AN ANGEL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN‚ HAVING THE KEY OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT & a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the Dragon, that old Serpent, which is the Devil, & Satan, & bound him a Thousand Years, & cast him into the bottomless pit, & shut him up, & set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more‚ till the Thousand Years should be fulfilled!—And after that he must be loosed a little season.
62. "AND I SAW THRONES, & WE SAT UPON THEM‚ & JUDGEMENT WAS GIVEN UNTO US: & I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, & for the Word of God, & which had not worshipped the Beast, neither his Image, neither had received his Mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; & they lived & reigned with Christ a Thousand Years! But the rest of the dead lived not again until the Thousand Years (the Millennium) were finished.
63. "THIS (THE RAPTURE OF THESE MARTYRS & THESE SAINTS) IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION! Blessed & holy is he that hath part in the First Resurrection: on such the Second Death hath no power, but we shall be Priests of God & of Christ, & shall reign with Him a Thousand Years!" (Rev.20:1–6)
64. WHEW! WOW! DID YOU HEAR THAT? DID YOU SEE THAT? WOW! WHAT A SURPRISE! What a shock! What an awesome, fearsome, tremendous Feast for His Bride!—Not the kind of feast we were expecting‚ some nice festival or some fancy wedding reception where there would be lots to eat & gifts & prizes & rewards, etc. But what is our feast? What is our reward? What is now the Feast which we have now enjoyed as His Bride?: To not only watch, but to partake in the total destruction of the evil kingdom of the Antichrist & his foul forces & his evil City of World Confusion, Babylon, & the horrors of the awful systems of evil Man!
65. THIS IS THE FEAST WHICH WE WERE INVITED TO, TO FEAST OUR EYES ON THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR ENEMIES, & even partake in their total annihilation & total slaughter, a massacre of the evil men of Satan, sons of Belial & worshippers of the Devil! To personally have a part in that great feast of satisfaction, a feast of vengeance, a feast of seeing our bitter enemies & executioners & torturers & tormentors & persecutors destroyed before our very eyes & even by us ourselves!
66. WHAT A FEAST!—A FEAST TO WHICH GOD EVEN INVITES THE FOWLS OF HEAVEN & THE VULTURES OF EARTH to come & fill themselves with the flesh of evil men & kings & captains of their evil forces & the sorcerers of Satan himself! "Come & feast," He says to the fowls of the Earth, "& destroy them all"! And herein we find the feast of satisfaction of the final vengeance of God & our vengeance upon our enemies!
67. WHAT A FEAST! WHAT A SATISFACTION! What kind of feast could possibly have been more satisfying for the Bride of Christ than to see our great Bridegroom ride out, leading us in fury & power & great glory to totally destroy our enemies! That is the Feast of the Lamb, the Marriage Feast of the Lamb, a feast of vengeance & retribution & destruction & the wiping out of our enemies throughout the Earth, leaving only those who refused the Mark of the Beast & refused his Image & rejected the Antichrist as God, those who refused to fall down & worship him, those who fought against him in mighty armies with great forces around the World & finally, with our help‚ defeated him totally!
68. ONLY THE ANTI-ANTICHRIST PEOPLE REMAINED UPON THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH! Only those who had fought the battles of God Himself against His enemies, even though some knew Him not, even though they had not yet received Jesus as their Saviour. Even though they were of many other religions, they nevertheless believed in God & rejected idolatry & rejected the Mark of the Beast & the Antichrist forces of Satan himself & fought against them valiantly, bravely & fearlessly at the sacrifice of their own lives & some of their own countries! They fought from the very walls of Jerusalem against his forces attacking Jerusalem in Israel! He had once been the leader of the Jews who supported Israel, but they finally rebelled against him!
69. THEN WE TOO DESCENDED FROM HEAVEN in these great flights of great white horses flying across the sky to their aid & assistance & rescue to help the Anti-Antichrists win that great Battle of Armageddon‚ which began at the hill of Megiddo in the valley of Megiddo 200 miles to the north near Haifa & followed down the river where the blood of these forces ran so deep it even reached the horses' bridles in the rivers of Israel!
70. UNTIL THE BATTLE FINALLY REACHED THE VERY WALLS OF JERUSALEM ITSELF in the Valley of Jezreel, the Valley of Decision, when the decision was made by Jesus Christ Himself for us to join them, to depart from that Wedding Chamber in Heaven & that tremendous Feast of the view of what was happening on the Earth in the Wrath of God Himself! So that we were able to come down & be the climactic, dramatic, spectacular, tremendous—I just haven't words to describe it!—final ending of the Wrath of God which we ourselves participated in, in destroying the Antichrist & his forces in the Battle of Armageddon!
71. SO, PRAISE GOD! HALLELUJAH! THE BATTLE IS OVER & WE HAVE WON, & we have taken possession of God's Earth & the horrible mess that it's now in! But I will have to tell you more about that later in the next Chapter, what we are going to do now with this mess on Earth! God bless you‚ I hope you enjoyed that Wedding Feast of the Lamb, the Marriage Feast of the Lamb! It wasn't quite what you expected, was it? Ha! God is full of surprises! The more we read His Word & the more we study & the more we pray & seek visions from Him & revelations from Him, the more clearly He shows what He really has in mind & what He really means by some of these passages, as He has shown us today!
72. I DARE SAY THIS HAS BEEN QUITE A REVELATION TO US AS TO THE NATURE OF THE WEDDING FEAST OF THE LAMB! But praise God, it was a feast, huh? A feast of vengeance, a feast of revenge‚ a feast of justice, a feast of wreaking God's punishment upon our bitter enemies who have fought us every inch of the way & have tried to stop us & persecute us & torment us & have jailed & killed us & martyred us & done everything they could to stop the flow of God's Love & His Word & His wonderful Gospel of Salvation to the poor lost souls of the Earth!
73. SURELY GOD IS JUST, SURELY GOD HAS DONE JUSTLY & RIGHTEOUSLY in permitting us to help Him in wreaking His vengeance upon the followers of Satan & the Antichrist himself! So thank You Lord!—Amen? Praise God! Wasn't that a glorious feast? Hallelujah! Even the vultures & buzzards & fowls of the Earth have been filled with their flesh! Certainly a just due for all their evil deeds, that they have fallen on the field of battle & been devoured by beasts & buzzards! What an ignominious, humiliating, devastating end to the forces of our enemies, praise God? Thank You Jesus! Let's shout hallelujah for the Victory!—Amen? Praise the Lord! Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus!
74. (SINGS:) "THE LION OF JUDAH HATH CLEANSED EVERY STAIN & won for us the Victory again & again! The Lion of Judah hath cleansed every stain & won for us the Victory again & again!" Hallelujah for the Victory!—Amen? Praise God! Thank You Jesus! (Sings: )
"Lead on, O King Eternal,
The day of march has come!
Henceforth in fields of battle
Thy tents shall be our home!
In days of preparation
Thy strength hath made us strong!
So now, O King Eternal,
We sing our battle song!"
75. "JERUSALEM, JERUSALEM!
HARK HOW THE ANGELS SING!
Hosanna in the highest,
Hosanna to your King!
Hosanna in the highest,
Hosanna to your King!"
—That's of course the New Jerusalem, the Heavenly City, our Home forever! Praise God! Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus!
76. AND SO, HAVING WON THE VICTORY ON EARTH, WE SAINTS STREAM BACK TOWARD HEAVEN & our Heavenly Homes to rest from the Battle for awhile as we plan the reconstruction & rehabilitation of the Millennial Earth & the Kingdom of God on Earth‚ praise God! Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus! Praise to the King of kings & the Lord of lords forever!—In Jesus' name, amen!
77. AREN'T YOU GLAD YOU LOVE THE LORD & served Him well, to be able to be here at such a Feast & receive your reward of Victory? Hallelujah! Thank You Lord! Amen!
