12 Receiving the Kingdom

Audio: mp3

It is said the 144,000 were perfectly united. Is that true? Would you like to be among this people? We want to understand the unity the 144,000 have and what that has to do with Jesus coming back and taking his people home. In the Bible sleeping people always had a bad time. We know the story of Samson and Utacas and you know what happened to sleeping Caesarea. I pray we can get a blessing from this to supply our temporal needs. Jesus is coming to receive his kingdom and Jesus is speaking and is saying something about receiving his kingdom. Jesus was demonstrating to people looking for the kingdom of heaven. We are looking today how these words apply.

Luke 19:11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.

Shouldn’t God just come right now with the armies of heaven? Is there something that still needs to be finished?

Luke 19:12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

What has to happen before he returns? He has to receive the kingdom. Does that receiving have to do with you and me today? The reception of the kingdom, what does it have to do with you and me personally? Jesus gives the example, the same statement but a different analogy not talking about the kingdom but the same process.

Luke 12:35 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.

When he is come from the wedding he will appear to his people and blessed are those that are watching at that time. This reception of the kingdom is like receiving of the bride. It’s the same thing different terminology. Before he comes he needs to receive his bride. The bride is the church. What is preventing the full reception of the church to him before he comes?

“When the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.” Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of Himself in His church. When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own. {COL 69.1}

He will receive the kingdom, and then he will come. He will come from the wedding and once he is wedded, then he will come. This reception has a lot to do with what we do today and how we respond to Gods words. When God prophesy’s something is to happen it is our duty and privilege to identify what needs to happen and to align ourselves with that work. God told Elijah it wouldn’t rain for three and a half years. What did Elijah do at the end of the three and a half years? He applied himself and prayed. If he prayed one and a half years in it wouldn’t have worked he had to identify three and a half years that at such a time a thing will happen and he had to apply himself to it. It’s the same as Daniel. When he studied the book of Jeremiah, he noticed something. He noticed that God said for 70 years the children of Israel would be in captivity. He reckoned that the 70 years was at the end so what did he do? He prayed and applied his heart to the thing that must come to pass. Therefore, it is very wise for us to consider what must happen and when it will happen so we can do what we need to do. If we don’t identify the time it is to happen, we are going to float around without chart and compass and we will be taken by every wind of doctrine and where are we going? The scripture is clear of what we are to be doing in these last days and that is what we are doing. We see what Christ has to do before he comes. He has to receive his kingdom, he has to have the bride.

Ephesians 5:25 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.

What’s he doing? He wants to receive the kingdom. In order to receive the kingdom, he must wash and sanctify it and when it is perfect he will present it to himself. What is this perfection that needs to be obtained in order for Jesus to come? It is expressed in the prayer of the king himself when he was on earth. The prayer is for the disciples but also for them that believe in his word. At the end of the world his bride needs to be perfect so he can come. Are you praying for this to happen?

John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

What is perfection? Unity is perfection. Here before Jesus comes, those that will must be made perfect in one. Often the word perfection in people’s minds gets concluded in some outward habit in my daily life that I do in my own home and true it is part of it. We will see the process that needs to be taken in order to enter the kingdom of heaven.

2 Peter 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience Godliness; 7 And to Godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

Here is a process of a virtuous life and getting rid of those major things that are not virtuous like going to the pub or having a licentious life. That is the first step but then you must add knowledge, temperance which is the daily activity of your life. Whether it’s sleeping, exercise, drinking, temperance regulates our daily life but beyond that patience is added. When you have a temperate life you can be patient. Then patience and Godliness. God likeness. Then brotherly kindness and charity.

2 Peter 1:8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make [you that ye shall] neither [be] barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Do you see the door to be able to be received into the kingdom? These things must abound. They must be consolidated in our practical life and then the entrance will be administered unto us abundantly into that kingdom. Perfection also means keeping the law.

1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. 

To keep the commandments of God is summed up in love to God and to another. If we keep this commandment, we will dwell in him and he in us. It becomes manifested by what spirit you have as you will see that this love for one another is an impossibly without Jesus Christ, it can’t happen. People talk about the commandments and say it’s impossible to keep and that we should just love each other. Loving is harder than keeping the letter of the law. You can walk around all your life not killing anyone but inwardly you can do it if there is no love for one another. Therefore love is the weightier matter of the law. Jesus said you pay tithe on mint, incense and cummin and neglect the weightier matters of the law which are mercy, faith and judgement, these ye ought to have to do. You should have done the first things and not left the other undone. What was the biggest issue? Relationship factors. There was a parable of one having a mote in his eye and the other saw it and judged the brother. What did Jesus equate that to in relation to a moat? He called it a beam. He said thou hypocrite, why criticise your brother, pull out the beam in your own eye and then you will have the ability to be able to see clearly as judgement is given to the meek. Jesus is concluding that the higher spectrum in Christianity is how you relate to one another.

Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if [there be] any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love [is] the fulfilling of the law.

You want to be perfect? This is it. Does anyone here have a problem with loving themselves? We do it so naturally, we love ourselves. Love your neighbour as yourself. Do you find it hard to love other people? It is hard to love other people but easy to love ourselves. Perfection lies in the ability to love you. Hebrews declares what needs to take place in order to see the Lord.

Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

There is an ecumenical idea of being peaceful at the expense of holiness but no you are to have peace with all men and holiness but don’t just have holiness and no peace with men. Stand by thyself I am holier than thou will not get you into the kingdom of heaven. These are broad statements to have love and peace with each other and not to make a war of things but to be holy and what needs to be right and held firm. Peace and wanting to keep the commandments of God has another description.

Psalms 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

Isn’t it important to love the law and the standards? And to love the concepts of loving each other? Do you get offended? Jesus is cleansing his church and separating the wheat from the tares.

Matthew 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Do you want to be among these people that will be perfectly united? If there is offence take place in the heart, if you are carrying around an offence with you and it is maintained, you will be pulled out. Everything that offends and takes offence. God is developing a bullet proof society. Do you know how it works? No one will give or take offence. Do you see how that is bullet proof? If anyone would give an offence, it would be null and void as no one will take one. This is what God is doing before he will receive his kingdom. Therefore it applies very much to you and me in our relationship with one another in matter of offence. The 144,000 were perfectly united. Did you know the calibre of the 144,000 before they were perfectly untied? How many were sealed?

Revelation 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: [and there were] sealed an hundred [and] forty [and] four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Who was Israel? Jacob. What was his family like? Was it a lovely unified family with no problems? They had problems alright. Isn’t God’s church meant to be a family? Not just a social club. Do families have problems? What needs to take place in the family of God before Jesus comes.

Revelation 7:5 Of the tribe of Juda [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad [were] sealed twelve thousand. 6 Of the tribe of Aser [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses [were] sealed twelve thousand. 7 Of the tribe of Simeon [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar [were] sealed twelve thousand. 8 Of the tribe of Zabulon [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin [were] sealed twelve thousand.

The 144,000 were perfectly united. It is a belief today that there were literal descendants in the flesh but it is written that flesh and blood will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. If you understand the bible when it gives names, when it gives a name to a person it describes what? The character. Not like today when we just like the sound of the name that’s all. But biblical naming was always to describe the character and that was it. Many times they named their children before they were born or when they were converted their name changed as their character changed. What we find in the twelve tribes in the children of Israel are twelve character types are in the family of God. These character types are the source of contention in the church. It is not about doctrine. It is very clear that no one can unite on error. Our unity is based on believe what you like and we just embrace each other in a big group hug. This is holiness and peace blended together to make a holy bride. This must take place before Jesus comes. are you involved in any of these character traits that cause problems in the church? This chapter is given to Jacob blessing his sons. It was a prophecy, a divine inspiration that he spoke.

Genesis 49:1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you [that] which shall befall you in the last days.

I’m going to tell you and this is prophetic as they passed away. A name is simply a noun and what is a noun? A describing word. It describes what the thing is. Therefore the names were describing what they were and in the last days these. When you spend time in the description of these men it is simply describing their character trait.

Judah

It is written of Judah that his brethren would praise him and bow down to him and that the sceptre would not depart from him. Here is a description of a leader. He wasn’t the firstborn so why should he be a leader? His character gave him the ability that people would bow down and follow him. He had that quality to take charge and as took charge people weren’t likely to challenge it. That is what he said let’s do it. You get people who do things and others follow. This is a Judah. Those characters that have leadership and a lot of people don’t like such people. Especially other Judah’s don’t like Judah’s as all are following him. It is a character trait of a person. It can be bad or it can be good as where did Jesus come from? The line of Judah. Didn’t multitudes follow Jesus? Didn’t he have an authority and yes it was by inspiration of God but his personality was also there. Which line did Absalom come from? Judah. Did he have an influence among Israel? Was it for good or bad? Bad. These character traits don’t conclude that it is good or bad it was God is going to polish it up in. God never intends to take our personality away, the colour of our flower. There is more than one type of flower in the garden. There are different personalities and God wants to perfect everyone’s personality to be holy yet he will keep the flavour of the person.

Rueben

He was the excellence of dignity yet was weak as water. He was good hearted. He had a very dignified purpose in life, noble aspirations yet can’t do them. Do you ever sense in yourself that exists as a character trait? The ability to carry out dignified thoughts is really lacking. Rueben was a nice dignified man yet he failed and committed fornication. He was weak in the lust of the flesh.

Gad

A troop shall overcome him but he shall overcome. This is the sort of character trait that always gets depressed, a troop overcoming. If any nation is in a war and they are losing, what is the tenor of the people? They are depressed, nothing to be happy about. There is a character trait that tends to always go on the negative side of things. When something bad happens, they carry the bag around before they can get it off. They can get if off but they carry the negative for a while.

Asher

He seems to have some success because he is made fat. He seems to be quite successful at what he does and it is written that his foot shall be dipped in oil like he glides along life easy. He doesn’t seem to have too many problems. Some people have problem after problem after problem and yet some people slide through life and sure they have their problems but in respect to others it is not the same, they just cruise along. It also says he shall yield dainties. The sort of person that likes to say all the nice words, they can rattle of the sweet nothings. That people always saying something nice, giving little dainties and seem to be always positive. It says he shall be acceptable to his brethren, the general populace like the person but he has a tendency to be Laodicean.

Naphtali

He is a hind let loose and gives goodly words. He is the sort of character like a hind, a female deer. What happens when you let a female deer go? It runs off into the bush, a little shy but yet while ever they are shy, they speak nice words. They give goodly words but are quieter like a female deer who will generally hide in the bushes so they are not seen. They are not seen as much. They are more private and they keep everything close and they don’t want to expose too much. If you went to put a big burden on a deer, can you put many burdens on a deer’s back? They will collapse a lot quicker than the usual. This is a character trait of shy, private people that can’t bear too much weight.

Joseph

He was a fruitful bough. A fruitful tree true that produces fruit is more sensitive than wild trees that you can hack down and they grow back at any time. But yet, while ever sensitive, trustful and will bring everything that is inside and put it out for everyone to pick. Isn’t that what Joseph did? He had dreams and he told his brothers the dreams. I am going to spill the beans, I just trust everyone. He would probably have been internet scammed if he was on the internet. He trusted and believed people. That’s a Joseph. He gives what is inside and puts it out as fruit.

Simeon and Levi

These people have a hot temper like the sons of thunder. They have a zeal for right and justice and if anything is unjust they want to revenge yet they are still faithful and will stay like Levi. Faithful to what is right but if there is injustice, let’s get them. Just like they did when their sister Dinah was taken by the king and abused. These men went oh, that is unjust and slew these men. It is somewhat noticed that Simeon was a bit more vindictive than Levi because where ever it is written of Simeon and Levi, Simeon was always the first person mentioned. He carried the chip on his shoulder a bit longer to get back at the person. He would secretly do it. Someone would upset him and he would carry it on his shoulder for a while until he could get them back. Does it cause havoc in the family?

Issachar

If there were no Issachar’s nothing would get done as they would willingly go under the burden, the brunt of the weight and happily take it. Willingly yield, not complain or whinge if it has a big burden but will quietly do it as he considers the rest at the end. He is happy to stay in a peasant like life to be a servant. Just for a small wage, a tribute for money to plod along and do what needs to be done with no whinging. They exist in the church and that is why things get done.

Zebulon

He has his haven by the sea, a haven of ships. He is a person that likes to trade, an entrepreneur. He is always considering how he can benefit the money bag and do a good deal like a good trade and earn and extra dollar. That is a character trait with people, some people are entrepreneurs.

Benjamin

Then there is Benjamin, the youngest of the family. It says he would devour his prey and devour the spoil like a wolf. The youngers of the family always gets indulged, always gets the presents, always gets the prey and gifts and he is on his prey, he doesn’t want to share like a wolf. Try and take some food from a wolf. Sure he might divide it a little bit, you can have this but I am looking after what I have. People as children who were petted and indulged and became materialistic and then became stubborn and fight for their objects. If there is something to contend for I am going to have it. You can see it in the apostle Paul. Which tribe did Apostle Paul come from? Benjamin. The Lord was telling him and he was kicking against the pricks, he was a stubborn man, he was a Pharisee but finally the Lord broke through and when he was in the right, he was stubborn in the right. It is not a bad thing to be stubborn in the right.

The 144,000

When you consider these tribes make up the 144,000 and they must be perfectly united. The people that carry the burdens can look at the other people that seem to cruise along in life and think, why don’t you do something? Or the leaders that are leading out notice a negative person and they ask, why would you be negative? The character traits in other people that annoy. It is not about doctrine, it is about personality, the way they do things and perform it. Whether it is right or wrong it is just their way and it annoys you. You get offended by the way they do it, do it my way. Is this a cause of problems in the church? Do you think we can be received in Gods kingdom while this exists? While those talkative people try and talk to the shy people and the shy people don’t talk and you say why don’t you talk? Or the people that will reveal every secret and it goes to the people that keeps secret and say can you tell me this, I don’t’ want to tell you that and you get bitten. Or people that hop up and sprout out great ideas that never get done. Either do it or don’t talk about it, one or the other. There is something wrong and they snap and get revengeful and you think settle down it wasn’t that man but in their mind it was unjust and if it was unjust it must be corrected. Does that cause problems in the church? There is one tribe left out in the 144,000. What tribe was that?

Dan

Dan was to judge the people but he was a serpent by the way. Here is the mind that sits on the judgement seat and like any judge has a file of all the people and their records of what they have been doing so when the court case comes up the judge gets the portfolio of the person and is up to date with the court case. He will look at the people and collected information and be very critical not so much on the face value of the person but try to surmise what is going on inside and will start filing on the person and notices what they do and will put that in their file. They will have a repertoire of all the wrongs someone has done wrong like a judge. Then as a situation has passed, they will come and back bite. They bite the back of the horses heal and what happens to the rider? He falls back. As the time has progressed and the issue has been made null and void the judge will bring the case back out and say remember these old bones of the past? You did this and that and they will pick up the past collecting data of people. Very clever and apparently good but so good they can’t be in heaven as it is written that people have such a religion.

All the religion a few poor souls have, is to watch the garments and acts of others, and find fault with them. Unless they reform, there will be no place in heaven for them, for with this spirit they would find fault with Jesus and angels. {2SG 287.1}

They can’t be there. With these character traits, God is pulling out those who take offence habitually and give offence. Therefore consider your life. Consider the offences you have had in recent time and get rid of them. Get rid of the offence because if the person that makes offence to you, or if you take the offence from that person it is more than likely it is the character you don’t’ like of that person. The way they do it really annoys and anything they say even though nice it will still annoy. This causes church annihilation and if this continues we will not be part of that kingdom. You will miss out. If we would strive to be among that people what must we do? Overcome our distaste for the flavour of other people. Whether right or wrong is irrespective it generally the flavour of the person that gives it that makes you annoyed.

James 3:1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. 2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same [is] a perfect man, [and] able also to bridle the whole body.

How does the whole body get affected? When offence stops happening in the church. Stops being given and taken. Those two principles must be slid in simultaneously for it to work. If you say no one is to give offence anymore and someone slips up and they take offence, we are back at square one. No one take offence at another person. If you love Gods law, if you have peace with God, it won’t annoy or rattle you inside. It won’t fluff your feathers regardless of what they do if you love Gods law.

James 4:11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of [his] brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. 12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

This is why Dan wasn’t there. Because the person that will critique everyone else and have a file on everyone else that you have picked up, when that is in the mind, you judge the law and if you judge the law, you make yourself like God. A judge is always over that which is being judge. Are you over the law? Do you look down and conclude what is right and wrong in your own head or is it God who should do that? This is what must take place. This situation in God’s family must take place as the number will be made up if you are part of it or not. It is your choice. Some may say it’s already made up, no we are still here, it’s not made up. Do you want to be among that people? This is our work. We want to understand the timing of that.

Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

Like the bricks in the temple must be fused into one. That can’t happen if you don’t like the other persons flavour or colour of their flower. If you think all poppies should be gone. If we want to be fused into one edifice, one building before he can receive his kingdom, we must get over this hurdle because he that doesn’t offend is a perfect man. It is a weighty matter of the law. Yes do the things we must do in the reformation of our practical habits in our daily life yet it is the biggest and hardest part to be in a family of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel with every flavour and be perfectly united. It is impossible in the human flesh. If there is any unity generally it is just a collection of people that naturally get along in the flesh and that is simply called a club. God’s church is not a club, God chooses who will be saved and if we don’t like the flavour then we will have to leave Gods church if we don’t like their flavour. God wants to build this edifice. The word ’till’ does it give a suggestion of a point of time?

Ephesians 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

What is Christ waiting for? With longing desire to see himself perfectly reflected in his people. In other words, if we are not unified can we become perfect? No. I used to read it wrong and a brother pointed it out to me and it made sense. I thought it said till we all come into the unity of the faith and that we all need to be unified and press together and force people together to present a united front. I thought we have to be unified in order to do this. The unity of the faith is the source of perfection. It is not that if we stick together we are perfect in a corporate sense. When will this ’till’ happen?

The Seventh Trumpet

Revelation 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

Here is a prophecy that the mystery of God should be finished when what sounds? When the seventh angel begins to sound. If you know the chronological events of the Bible, Revelation 8 and 9 are talking about seven trumpets, seven angels that are sounding trumpets and we come to the end of chapter 9 and it is the culmination of which trumpet? The sixth trumpet. Then comes a text in between the sixth and seventh. What is the mystery of God?

Ephesians 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; [even] in him:

Do you know what God wants to do before the fulness of time is complete in the full dispensation of this earth? God wants to gather us in one with heaven. If we can’t get along now, can we get along in heaven? We are not all the same personality in heaven. There are twelve gates and every tribe and personality will go in according to the gate but you all end up in the same place. Would you like a civil war to happen where one personality comes in one gate and one person in another and one says, I hate that character. You won’t be there if that is the case. This is what he has wanted to do from the foundation of the world. It is your choice what you want to do with other people’s character traits. This is the mystery. He has made know the mystery and isn’t it a mystery that such diverse people from every nation, kindred, tongue and people of all character differences, isn’t it a mystery that they could dwell together in unity? This can only come through the gospel of Jesus Christ. No human creed can force church unity. This is why we can’t partake in war as there is a certain nation that starts a war and these Germans, they want to take over the world, let’s get rid of the Germans because of their character trait and people don’t like them and any other war on this planet has been over the same issue because in each nation they have their own character that predominates as a whole.

1840

Is the world united? We are living in a time of clay and iron trying to mingle together and it is impossible today. It must happen in Gods church and by that all men will know. As the seventh trumpet is about to sound, the sixth trumpet has a time prophecy does it not? If it has a time prophecy then we know when the sixth trumpet finishes and if we know that, do we know when the seventh trumpet starts? We do. Do we know when the mystery of God should be finished?

Revelation 9:13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

Here are these angels like in the churches, they are the leaders, the sultans, and there were four heads, four main sultans in the great river Euphrates. What country is at the head of the river Euphrates? Turkey, the ottoman empire. Did they have sultans? They did. The four angels that were bound were loosed which were prepared, God had already worked it out.

Revelation 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

This is a time prophecy. An hour, a day a month and a year. So it was on July 27 1449 these four sultans started expanding their kingdom. This was an addition to the downfall to the eastern Roman Empire. This world knows how many Muslims there are around the whole planet in the different countries. The cause for that effect was in this time period. This time period as you identify them from prophetic to literal ended August 11 1840. What happened on that day? The Ottoman Empire yielded its Empire. That is when it finished.

Revelation 11:14 The second woe is past; [and], behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

What date did the sixth trumpet finish? 1840. It says the third woe comes quickly. The bible is indicating a little space before the seventh trumpet begins to sound. Notice what the sounding of the seventh trumpet is and we will know exactly what time we are talking about.

Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Was this the setting up of the kingdom? When did that kingdom start to be set up? 1844. How many years between 1840 and 1844? Four years, a short time. The seventh trumpet started to sound in 1844.

Revelation 11:16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Now we are coming up to ‘he shall consume and destroy him to the end.’

Revelation 11:19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Where does the bible talk about a great earthquake and hail? The seven last plagues. This angel starts in 1844 and travels through time including every other war to take place until the end. Including the war that Satan will have on the new Jerusalem. The temple of God was opened in heaven and what was seen? The ten commandments. What is the fulfilling of the law? Love. In vision the advent pioneers saw one commandment with a halo around it. What was that? The sabbath day and it was in 1848 that the first sabbath conferences were held by the Advent people. The ten commandments were brought out in 1848. The nations were angry because in 1840 and 1844 in Europe they had their binoculars over the Atlantic looking at America thinking this is a free country and the common people started realising that the Americans had a good idea with their democratic society – power for the common people. As they were looking at America there was a stir happening especially in France but not only in France but by the time 1848 came, 30 European nations were in revolution. Kings were being dethroned. In Tuscany and in Austria, and in Prussia and in many other European countries the control of the government was switched to a democratic society. It was then that many countries God presidents instead of having kings. At the same time the USA was in war with Mexico. Does it say that when the seventh trumpet sounded the nations were angry? This happened in 1848 and twenty years later the American civil war took place and then the first and second world war took place. has not this world been in war since then? We are living in the seventh trumpet. Therefore the scripture says when the seventh trumpet begins to sound the mystery of God should be finished. The mystery of God was to bring all flavours of different character into united and the 144,000 were to be perfectly untied. Is it time then for people to get along and ignore the flavours of each other character and even the way they communicate to us and even if they seem to snap at us or be cold or shy or whatever it is, it is time we got over this problem today. If anyone doesn’t they are going to miss out as the seven the trumpet must be at the beginning, we must pray that we would get along. That we would be a family but not like Jacob in the flesh but the family of Israel, the name change that we can wrestle with God in prayer and have power with God like a prince and you will get the name of Israel and be part of the Israel of God. All this needs to happen now. This is time that any Dan’s need to be killed and be born again and all the other character traits need to be refined into the image of Jesus Christ. Give no offense, take no offense.

Amen.
