Verse By Verse Through Revelation (21:24-27)

The Light
For the Lord God Almighty will be our light

24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it.

“The nations” Refers to different races within the believers.

“the kings of the earth” Reveals different positions in the new earth that believers will inherit due to what they did for the Lord while they were on the old earth. 


25 Its gates will never close by day because it will never be night there.

The Lamb [Jesus] and the Father [God Almighty] will be the light of the new earth [verse 23]. Darkness represents sin and since it will no longer exist neither will night. Our bodies will be like Christ’s which needs no rest. 


26 They will bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.

The nations will bring into the new city, Jerusalem that which Christ has given them [glory and honor], the nations will worship the Lamb and the Lord God. 


27 Nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those written in the Lamb’s book of life.

“Nothing unclean will ever enter it” Refers to those who did not wash their sins away by the blood of the Lamb. Satan and his fallen angels can not enter there, for they are unclean spirits and the unclean are assigned to the Lake of Fire.

“detestable or false” Both meaning the same thing, like those who claim to be Christians but were false teachers, are detestable to the Lord and false religion of all kinds is detestable to the Lord. 

The only ones who are going to be with Jesus, are those who gave their lives to Him and worshipped Him as Lord of lords and King of kings.

“those written in the Lamb’s book of life”

Jesus said in Luke 10:19-20, 19 Look, I have given you the authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy; nothing at all will harm you. 20 However, don’t rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

The believers will rejoice in heaven because they will rest from all their labors [their work for the Lord] and no longer will they be in a fallen world of sin of tribulations and sufferings. But, the greatest joy besides being with Jesus is not being apart from Him like those who did not have their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and are in hell for all eternity.

(Part 7) The True Darkness Of Atheism

The devil can only defeat us in the darkness but since we have the light [the Word of God] he is a defeated foe
When a person becomes an Atheist, they go from bad to worse. Darkness in one’s soul is like yeast that spreads and won’t stop growing until it has engulfed its victim with pure hatred for God and those who belong to Him. Once his heart is filled with darkness, there is no return unless God reaches out and saves the person. 


[John Arthur the confused Atheist said]

Spaniard,

You’re full of [can not show, bad language]! Your ignorance is astounding. You are a trumped up bible thumper who knows nothing about atheism and you keep on propounding your ignorance on this blog. Atheists are going to destroy your blog by showing your cult followers how ridiculous your ideas are. The death knell sounds for Fundamentalist Christian ideology and you will live to see its demise.


Bible-Thumper: an evangelist or other person who quotes the Bible frequently, especially as a means of exhortation or rebuke.-Dictionary.com

With a definition like that, I take it as a compliment being called a Bible-Thumper. 

This troll called John Arthur does not desist from hounding me but, is trying his best to convert me to the most insane belief ever, called Atheism. Why? Satan hates the light of the Gospel and the blog that God put in my heart to make is for His glory, honor, and praises. It encourages all Atheists to see how sinful they truly are and only Jesus can make them clean through faith in Him.

Arthur says,  “Atheists are going to destroy your blog” How desperate can this guy get? If one knew that they had their enemy defeated, then why try so hard? I know why because John Arthur’s god [Satan] is behind him and is trying to destroy my blog by any means necessary. 

Why do Atheist attack the true Living God who they claim does not exist? The answer is below.

2 Timothy 2:26

Then they may come to their senses and escape the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

He can’t help it but attack Christians because he is the devil’s puppet. 

Ephesians 6:12

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens.

My fight is not against this poor lost soul, John Arthur, but against the demonic forces who are manipulating him to try to dismantle my faith. To me, his comments are pitiful. But, I don’t let my guard down because it is not coming from him but from his assigned demon. 

Comments like his only tells me that I’m on the right track and I rejoice. 

Matthew 5:11

11 “You are blessed when they insult you and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of me. 12 Be glad and rejoice, because your reward is great in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Unbeknown to Mr. Arthur, his insults are multiplying my reward in heaven. Your insults get turned into blessings for me. 

 

 

 

When The Sky Is Red: The Signs Of The Times

The sky is red

Matthew 16:1-4

1 The Pharisees and Sadducees approached, and tested him, asking him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 He replied, “When evening comes you say, ‘It will be good weather because the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘Today will be stormy because the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to read the appearance of the sky, but you can’t read the signs of the times.

Jesus was very upset with the teachers of the law in His time because since they were in the Word, they should have known the Messiah’s coming through biblical signs. 

If we do not study end times prophecy with the rest of Scripture, know that you are in disobedience. 

Matthew 24:36

36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.

The day and the hour are not meant for us to know, but the season of Christ return, we MUST know.

Mathew 24:32-33

32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors!

One of the Books in Scripture that is about the end times comes with a blessing. 

Revelation 1:3

3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

The Greek word for keep is Tereo which means I keep, guard, observe, watch over-Strong’s# 5083.

How can one watch out for biblical prophecy coming to its fulfillment if they don’t study and know it?

The blessing will come to those who are ready and are looking for the signs of Jesus’ return. 

But the world is in darkness, blind and without understanding because we as believers have the Holy Spirit who reveals to us the will God which is stamped in Scripture. 

1 Thessalonians 5:3-5

3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

When a Christian is in God’s Word, reading and studying the signs, his life will be busy doing the work of God by warning people of the coming wrath that will be poured out on those living in rebellion.
