They were singing the song of Moshe, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb:
“Great and wonderful are the things you have done,
ADONAI, God of heaven’s armies!
Just and true are your ways,
king of the nations!
ADONAI, who will not fear and glorify your name?
because you alone are holy.
All nations will come and worship before you,
for your righteous deeds have been revealed.”
Praise God in all His glory in this time of rededication.
Then I looked, and there before me was a white cloud. Sitting on the cloud was someone like a Son of Man with a gold crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. Another angel came out of the Temple and shouted to the one sitting on the cloud, “Start using your sickle to reap, because the time to reap has come—the earth’s harvest is ripe!” The one sitting on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.
Another angel came out of the Temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. Then out from the altar went yet another angel, who was in charge of the fire; and he called in a loud voice to the one with the sharp sickle, “Use your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth’s vine, because they are ripe!” The angel swung his sickle down onto the earth, gathered the earth’s grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God’s fury. The winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress as high as the horses’ bridles for two hundred miles!
It is by our fruit, how we have treated our fellow man and trusted in the sacrifice of Yeshua and Adonai that we will be harvested into eternal life. The first fruits into heaven’s storehouse or the second gathering into the winepress of destruction.
Revelation 8:9-10, 14-15
After this, I looked; and there before me was a huge crowd, too large for anyone to count, from every nation, tribe, people and language. They were standing in front of the throne and in front of the Lamb, dressed in white robes and holding palm branches in their hands; and they shouted,
“Victory to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb!”
“Sir,” I answered, “you know.” Then he told me, “These are the people who have come out of the Great Persecution. They have washed their robes and made them white with the blood of the Lamb. That is why they are before God’s throne.
“Day and night they serve him in his Temple;
and the One who sits on the throne
will put his Sh’khinah upon them.
In Revelation the Nation of Israel is numbered at 144,000, yet all believers from all the nations are allowed to worship and serve Adonai in the temple. This is contrary to those false religions that would limit the number of people in Heaven, trust in Yeshua’s sacrifice and God is all that is required.
Those whom I love, I rebuke and discipline. Therefore, be zealous and repent.
Rebuke and discipline are not bad things, though we might be uncomfortable in the event. Yeshua said we are the branches and He would prune us to bring forth more fruit. Lord help me to understand the pruning so I may be a better witness for You. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
Your word stands firm in the heavens.
All creation proclaims the Creator. As I have stood outside on crisp winter nights and seen all the stars in their courses it is impossible for me to deny God. Praise Adonai, let the heavens sing out! Amen!
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. On the contrary, love that has achieved its goal gets rid of fear, because fear has to do with punishment; the person who keeps fearing has not been brought to maturity in regard to love.
I have entered into relationships because I was afraid to be alone. They all have cost me dearly in my life, yet I was blessed by God to enter into two marriages where He was the center of the love we felt for each other, and while both have had their challenges, by keeping focused on God, I would not trade a moment. As John says “There is no fear in love.” Lord let my life be that testimony, I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have shalom. In the world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world!”
This is the one big change in my personality since I have come to trust. I no longer sweat the small stuff, the things I used to get wrapped around the axle with to no avail. Yeshua has given me a peace to face each day. Thank You Lord for strengthing me for,the trials and rejoicing with me for the good, Amen.
For I did not speak on My own, but the Father Himself who sent Me has commanded Me what to say and speak. And I know that His commandment is life everlasting. Therefore what I say, I say just as the Father has told Me.”
This why Yeshua was the perfect sacrifice, complete obedience to the Father. Adonai shape my heart so that I would be so bold to follow You so completely, because by myself I am too weak. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
